    Beautiful photo Abraxas.
    I usually like your photos but some how they feel oversaturated and a bit unreal. I guess you're aware of it and like it, but just to share my feeling.

    Thanks Arch.

    Dani,

    Without going into a long-winded self exploration, I'll just say that I am a bit oversaturated and unrealistic. I look back at some of my work and think- "Sheesh. Heheh." But that was the best expression I could make of how I felt at that moment. Every shoot and every editing session I try to bring that feeling and expression closer together. Just about everytime I feel I move closer. The difference between the emotion and the expression is what drives me.

    At the top of my short list of influential photographers is Galen Rowell.
    http://mountainlight.com/gallery.html

    In my mind, Galen's work would be -just about perfect- if he would have spent more time in the Mojave Desert. However Galen's work, no matter how good I feel it is, is not quite an expression of how I feel. If it were, I'd sell my equipment, get haircut, a real job and buy prints. As it is, I feel it is my job to develop my interpretation.

    Thanks for sharing how you feel. It means a lot to me- I have to continue on the path I've chosen and see where it takes me.

    Not concerned with originality are you?
    Way too over saturated almost to the point of looking like a cartoon.


    neato sky.

    Try to find a way to take a photo of the same ol' scenes in a not so same ol
    way.

    I love it. I think you've really developed a cool style with the oversaturation and it works.
