    Just messing with some over-processed looks.

    As you're saying: there is nothing like experimenting. True, true. Explore all the paths.
    For me personally ... it hurts my eyes. But I still applaud your idea and desire to experiment, and creativity to go this way and that way!

    Yeah the thought process here was to break the rules a bit, where normally the subject (the model) is perfectly in focus and the rest is sort of just there... instead I made sure she was a bit blurry but the clouds and leaves fought for attention, but since she's in the Ro3rds area she becomes the focus again.

    Of course, I was GOING for an overall pleasing to look at, yet eye catching photo, so if It's annoying than that was certainly not the right thing to do.

    Wow I really appreciate that comment. I understand how hard it can be for us to share our work, even our BEST work, and openly let people comment on it. When we're starting out it seems easier, because we're looking for those golden nuggets of compliments, even among a sea of un-flattering responses.

    These experimentations are just that, ideas, experimenting with post processing, concepts, etc. I hope that if nothing else, I get some feedback that can lead me in the right direction!

    EDIT: Oh and my smoke experiments worked out so well that I sold some prints!

    That might actually look really cool in BW.
