Roland, I am touched that you found so much to like in my humble work. As I mentioned earlier, I think if I had gone into photography as a profession long ago I probably would have ended up as a photojournalist. I love "telling" stories. While I am not the most creative of photographers (as you well know from our years here) I do try to be technically correct. And I seem to have a natural talent for composition which stands me in good stead.I remember seeing the Center in Octoberfests before. Glad to go back there
Oh, this shot is so "harry", to use it as an adjective. There's the actual image, solid, colorful, thought out well - but there's the explanation also and the background on what we see that make your OF-threads so worthwhile every time!
This is one beautiful tree, perfect! I agree on your thoughts about the lower right corner, but sometimes, there's just no way around a disturbing corner
hehe, you need a taller ladder
The camera shutter button is at the right, isn't it? (to me, it looks slightly tilted…)
this is one more example of
wonderfully geometric. Not only the various triangles and diagonals vs. horizontals in the 2D image, but also the 3D part of the rounded wall coming out, towards us.
- how difficult it is, sometimes, to get a clear shot (lots of cables in there, preventing a free view - as you said)
- how difficult it might be to expose for the white, you did well
- your always top notch background info on what's going on, what's in the picture.
- just a beautifully, carefully taken image of your's!
That's how I imagine the U.S. to be: Everything is big, there's enough space to give things the room they deserve. Long fence, bigger park, majestic trees!
That's actually what got me back to serious photography, Roland. Back in 2006 when digital SLR's finally became affordable for me. I've shot years of baseball, and perhaps a half dozen each games of football and basketball, plus a gymnastics tournament and a few other events. Not a pro by any means, but I enjoy it.Wonderful to see you shoot sports, and thank you for the background info again!
Thank you, Roland. We got through it, and her children and we sibs all felt supported.Condolences on the loss. All the best to your family in this difficult times.
