    Matt, that is a beautiful shot!! I think you are in no danger of being banned and you didn't need the Grand Canyon! You don't want to duplicate Ansel Adams, just creat the quality he had....and in this foto I think you did quite well at that.

    Ok Carly, now that I have bragged on how well you have come along in the last year, lets see something fantastique!! I know you can do this one!

    Ohhhh El, I love that shot!

    WannaBe, those are very pretty. :-)

    Rob, I have seen you do some similar type shots in the past so I think you don't need any tips, just some great scenery which you obviously found!! VERY GOOD JOB! . :-)

    Yasu, that is a very nice foto and the porcelain effect you used looks good on it, but as Rob says, it is a bit soft for Adam's style. I am guilty of doing the soft focus myself many times.


    Oh yeh EVP! show em all the tricks! and then Like Rob says, you post a red button??!! :-)


    Ok, I tried sevaral things, and just couldn't top Rob........ so I chose to get upclose and personal with some of our local foliage! :-) I am going to try some pretty Dutch clouds with the full moon this evening, if the weather is agreeable!

    That is an Ansel Adams picture he posted to show what his inspiration was.

    Second attempt...trying to emulate his style gave me a good feeling for his work and I now know what brilliant photographer he was!

    The photo you mentioned is the Ansel Adams picture that inspired him to take the one he posted above it. He put it up to show us.

    hmmm, don't think i've got this right, but it's as good as it can be for now. nowhere near the quality of others in this thread.......




    (limited with subjects to shoot for today, so just took a shot off the balcony).

    comments and crits always more than welcome

    here is the one i originally posted (just for reference).

    Bit grainy and a little too dark in my eyes...the clouds are amazing, there's a storm coming up right?

    Adding the border was a good idea

    Wow! Really nice... Love the colour & composition and it has great impact!

    Only thing I'd say is the harsh white on the left of the sky is a bit distracting, sort of drags your eye out a bit.


    This has gotta be the best Themed Photography ever!

    ok, that was the last edit- i promise. have darkened the sky there a bit.

    thanks all for the feedback- you've really helped me out with this one

    i'm fairly pleased with it now!

    and yep, that is indeed my view. pretty cool. the sheep are a bit noisy in the night though
