    After He's Gone

    Thank you both. Yes "Best Friend" could be slightly out of focus. I shot this in macro and focused on the dog's name "Dalton" although the N looks a bit out of focus to me.

    The perfect eye shot?

    Yep, a macro would be good. :thumbup: As for lighting, I'd experiment with several different sources (I like outdoors/sun best) but try to stay away from an on camera flash to your subject's eyes. I'm sure that's obvious though.

    After He's Gone

    Just in a bit of a funk lately. What else is there to do but to capitalize on my own sorrow? First time trying HDR. I've always told myself it was too fake/processed looking. But you know what? Today I kind of like it. What do you think? <----or CC welcome ;) PICT0014 by BlackDogsPhoto...

    Hallo from Italy

    Ciao Welcome to the forum.

    Help, I suck at nature.

    I agree. Looking at the first photo I find the composition rather pleasing but am not real thrilled with the B&W.

    This explains it all.

    Sounds like my kind of day - :)

    Oh boy does this photo make your mind wander. Nicely done.

    top two photography magazines?

    There's so many but I'd have to say my favorites would be LensWork and Aperture. Probably not the top 2 as far as the market goes. I also like Outdoor Photographer, American Photo and B&W + Color.

    Dragonfly and Honeysuckle

    :lol: I used to call them honeysuckles when I was a kid too. Then I found out that honeysuckles are different flowers. Yes, these do taste good - like candy.

    Few Hot Rods from today.

    It's very nice the way it is too. Gives you the feeling the hot rod raced right up to you and stopped. ;)

    Dragonfly and Honeysuckle

    I kind of like the softness but I doubt you're looking for a critique :) I think these flowers are called columbines not honeysuckle. (Hi, from a fellow Minnesotan.)

    Few Hot Rods from today.

    These are both very nice IMO. The colors of these 2 hot rods make a nice contrast between them and nature's sky/tar road. I'm not real keen on the crop/framing in the first one - kind of would like to see less space behind (or maybe more in front instead of behind) the hot rod but that's just me.

    Found a mint condition vintage gillette

    Fun, I remember my mom shaving her legs with one of those things!

    A mans best friend. I invite you to share...

    I posted my 2 boys on the Pets of TPF thread but being a HUGE dog lover I'll be more than happy to post them again. Butch; PICT0090 by BlackDogsPhoto, on Flickr Sundance; PICT0017 by BlackDogsPhoto, on Flickr and I'll add Dalton whom I just lost to cancer on the 10th because I still miss...

    Impossible Project Film?

    Has anyone used this film? Did you like it? Hate it? Advice to others? Thx!

    Dead Man's Hand

    Love it! Maybe IF I'd change anything at all, I'd try real money & coins or older poker chips instead of the newer brightly colored poker chips??? Maybe.

    Black and White or In color. Help

    I agree - definitely the color.

    Hammock Strings C&C Please :)

    I think the DOF is fine but I'm told I have tunnel vision myself. :) I'm kind of liking the color versions better than the B&W.
