    I actually really like how there are only fragments of people...like you never get to know the whole person...very cool!

    BTW....I love your lengthy, descriptive titles, I really do.
  3. Thanx Matthew, a good title can add value to a piece:biggrin:
  4. Tsk,tsk. Forgiven.

    it's a strong image. Nice contrast. 2 thumbs up.

    Stephen you softie! :Wink:

    Rodney, this is the strongest yet in this series. The girl's mouth pulls you right into the image the pointing hand keeps you there, and the Thai ice tea still looks delicious (so does the wine, but I'm at work... :rolleyes: )
  6. I like it because the viewer is active in this photograph. It's like I'm Rodney...
  7. Whoosh! Sucked right into this photo. Just like I was there. Tonally nice, too!
  8. Thanks Matthew, Stephen, Chris, Ned, Ray for viewing and comments.

    Neopan 400 in Xtol, Xtol being my current liquod of choice
  9. Looking good. I have a big pouch of that xtol stuff too for when I run out of D76 in about two years.

    Personally, I would call this one "what's that other fork for anyway?"
  10. Fork! Who uses forks in an Asian restaurant! Gotta love those chopsticks!:biggrin:
  11. I used to use chop sticks. Then my kids turned me on to those new kind that are connected at the top with some animal shape or other.

  12. Now those are cool. Where do you get them?
  13. I don't recall whether or not i used both forks. the silverware is hefty, feels good in my hand. i have not seen any chopsticks here, maybe they have them on special request.
  14. Saw them at some cheese store in Madison Wisconsin.

    I also found these cool chopstick hinges at a noodle shop in Denver last year. They work for ordinary disposable take-out type chopsticks.
  15. I like this Rodney, nice shot

    The first thing I thought was "that's not a square picture... it's clearly rectangular"...
    then it hit me. DOH!!!!

    I was really expecting some huge large format plate negative. :)

    Impressive picture none the less.
