  1. Howdy All,

    A recent trip to Llano Texas, shot with modded D70s

  2. Honestly Craig, unless it is me or my monitor, I can hardly make out the bridge in the photo as it is to dark.

  3. Howdy George,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have to admit I was going for a very dark silhouette of the bridge, and a lighter foreground. I seem to have this problem of my images being too dark to see on a lot of folks monitor, and I have checked mine over and over on the charts. I can see the ends of the black and white sections and maybe it's working in a kind of dark room that fools me?

    Anyway, thanks for your thoughtful reply and I'll check into the darkness:biggrin:

  4. Howdy,

    I tried lightening this one up a little, is it any better?

  5. I think that is much better, and also knowing what look you were going for.

    George.
     
  6. I like the atmosphere you've captured, and the second version(lighter) shows better on my monitor also.

    I like the dark one better, very moody, almost frightening.. I wouldn't want to drive over that bridge by myself! It's a beautiful shot!!!

    Quite a contrast between the sky and the gound. Very nice picture

    Howdy All,

    Thanks for the comments and replies. I appreciate the thoughtful insight on how you viewed the image.
     
  10. Your rework of this shot is much better. Nice image.
     
  11. Nice image..did you go to Cooper's Old Time BBQ while you were in town ?? If we were within 50 miles of Llano we always had to make the journey for some brisket & pork chops:biggrin:
     

  12. Howdy Gordon,

    Thanks!!
     
  13. Howdy,

    Unfortunately we had planned to return and things didn't work out that way, but I promise the next time we'll make it:smile:

    Both photos are real good IMO. I kinda like the first one best.
    Like they say: To each his own.
    Thanks

    I do to - it scares me! The second one is technically better.
     
  16. Howdy Sancho,

    Thanks so much, I too really liked the first one best!!

    Belize, Hmmmmmmmmmmm one of my most favorite places, 5 Sisters Lodge, is still a very fond memory.

    Kindest Regards

    I agree the reworked one is just right.
