  • The Little House Under the Mountain by AngieLatham

    Hi Angie, you are putting up some really great landscapes. This one feels extremely cold and this is a string image because of the way the mountain looms over the cottage, like it will engulf it. I could see you doing some artwork where the mountian comes alive to do just that!

  • Morning Light by jeanie

    I really like the texture of that water. Very smooth and purple-y, amongst other things! I must admit that I've never been up this far before sunrise for a shot!

  • On the fence by dawnmichelle

    A difficult shot to get because of the dark head and bright background but the contrast looks fine to me. I hope you get better soon. I haven't been around EPZ much lately due to lots of extra work because I don't know how long my job may last. I work for the State of California and those big deficits may get me! So I'm saving my money.

  • End of the cycle by wvmountaineers

    Yes, either this way or with even more road would also be good. You live in a scenic area so I look forward to more. Try some with fog for extra depth and that spooky look too. Good to see you uploading!

  • AGDEN... by andytvcams

    I realy like the colours on the far shore and how the warm light filters through to the green trees behind. The still water doubles the effect too!

  • This is Scotland by David_Gus

    There is a lot of blue but I like the wide angle and the longish exposure shows off the structures of the rock and beach.

    Christine, I never know what you'll put up next, but I do know that it will be interesting whatever it is. Variety is the spice of life they say. 'They' are right!

    Ian, from you I've learned to look at everything and not just head to my destination. You take such a wide variety of shots (as Debbie said) that I remember them when I'm driving around, and I often end up far from where I thought I'd go because I see an unexpected good shot!

    Tanya, from you I've learned to stop and notice the small details right beneath my feet. I probably walk right by lots of good shots, where you might look down and see something I'd missed! I hope you get that EC and POTW...

    Nik, from you I've learned how important it is to go to a wide variety of places and concentrate on the light and feel of that place. Even though you do mostly landscapes, they each have a different look to keep us guessing what you'll put up next.

    Hey Jouko,
    From you I've learned that you can have good friends from the other side of the world. I've learned to keep a good positive attitude even when things are not going well. I've learned that there are 300,000 lakes in Finland and that you have 299,998 left to photograph with your new lens. I've learned that a camera can function in temperatures below -30c. I've learned about ice fishing and ice swimming. I've learned much more than this, and I'm sure I'll learn lots more from you in the future!

    Jenn, from you I've learned how important it is to look closely at the details when taking a photo. You really seem to be able to find things that could be easily be overlooked and make them look great.

    Simon has it right. From you, I've learned to try to make things as simple as possible. Get it right as I'm shooting and things will be much easier when I get back to my computer. I spend much less time in PhotoShop because of you.

  • Posted on colin's profile

    It's a forehanded one... I used to worry about whether people would like a shot. And that means that I would take less chances. So now I take more chances because I go out there and try lots of different things. I wonder how these portfolio comments will be used? I guess like this??

    Suzan, from you I've learned to relax and have fun with photography. You take a wide variety of shots based on what you like, not on what you are 'supposed' to do. You show how enjoyable photography can be, and I especially like how I never know what you'll come up with next!

    Doug, from you I've learned the importance to getting out there early and often under the right conditions. And even when you do those daytime in the sun shots, they still turn out well. So I've also learned not to give up just because it is daytime!

    Hayley, from you I've learned the importance of mixing it up. Even though I haven't uploaded a flower or bird in a long time, I try to mix up my landscapes. For you, variety is the spice of life, and that's a good lesson to learn.

    Andy, from you I have learned the power of conscious observation. It is so easy to go out to take photos and not really see a place. But studying your photos has allowed me to see things in a better way. Not just while taking photos, but even while seeing light on the hills as I drive down a busy freeway. There is beauty to be had everywhere.

    Ian, from you I've learned how important it is to perservere and not give up when things are not going smoothly. And of course a good sense of humor does not hurt either! And the result is a long list of well executed photos that are very enjoyable to view over and over again.

    Kathy, from you I've learned how important dogs are to producing fine photography. The results speak for themselves. If those dogs weren't around, I bet you'd be sleeping in!
