    On Main Street

    Their clothing, their body language, and the gentle hand of the man escorting the lady- it is like they were dropped on the scene with a time machine. Oddly nostalgic and modern, at the same time. Great stuff.

    A question for arm-chair Psychiatrists

    It means that your life is spiraling out of control. It is the equivalent of dreaming of driving your car off a cliff. :biggrin-93: I actually know how I am going to die. Since I was a kid, I have repeatedly dreamed of getting hit by a bus while crossing a street. Where I live now, there...

    Artist's Pride

    What a wonderful photo. It is so textured. The young boy, slightly off centered and gingerly holding his creation, has such a calm, confident look on his face. But it is the large wrinkle in the canvas backdrop to the right, that seals the deal on this shot. Great stuff.

    NYC Street 5

    This is simply an outstanding set of street photographs. Your placement of the different elements in the frame keeps the eye moving, searching for more. But in each photo there is a strong central subject. This is not an easy thing to do in street photography. And as always, your supreme use...

    March just below my window

    Lew, I have been laying low since the virus thing started. I actually got out today and shot a Black Lives Matter rally in my very, very small town that I live in now, right outside of the Dallas area. Lew, if I ever get your way, you will be the first one I contact. Stay safe in this crazy...

    Las Vegas Protest ends in tear gas and rubber bullets (Lots of pics)

    The set is outstanding in its coverage and scope of the situation. Excellent composition skills along with selective DOF truly makes these photos pop. You were close, which is the way it usually has to be to get the story. Plus, the text accompanying the photos is informative and educational...

    The lighting is superb. The deep, dark shadows dominate the photo which only adds to the already dramatic composition. The man approaching on the right is really what cements this shot. The anxious dog, also covered by deep shadows, adds a human touch that only dogs can in photos.

    Is it really that hard to develop c-41

    I processed color negative film in C-41 for several years for a very small mom-and-pop publishing company. This was back in the '80's. I built my own processing system using Patterson 8-reel tanks and constructed temperature water baths from large Rubbermaid tubs (available at Wal-Mart). I...

    I believe the guy is David Burnett. He is a professional PJ who shoots a 4x5 camera.

    Girl On A Train

    Outstanding photo, Tuna. I would not change a thing about it. To me, the way you cropped it shows the daily hustle and bustle of train rides. My eye went directly to the child, then floated across the rest of the image. This shot reminded me of my many hours of riding commuter trains here in...
