Default Scenes from a Texas Road Trip

These are some shots from a recent road trip through Central Texas. I've just learned how to make frames and am amazed at the difference they make for the image.

I'd welcome any comments or suggestions!





















Take care,
Jeff

I can't say why, but that bench absolutely does it for me. It needs a touch more contrast to bring it out more--but don't overdo it. I'm not even going to suggest where you darken or lighten. It's your picture.

I think you shot a good series. Nice BW and good frames. I agree with you on your frames thoughts. I always place a frame with my shots too. GOOD WORK!

I like that the black and white of the photo's adds a feel, and doesn't set a specific time. Could be turn of the century. Twentieth, or twentyfirst. Very nice.

I like the road pic the best. As with any good picture like that, it just pulls my imagination. Where, when, why.... A good subject of contemplation.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions, y'all!

The road one is my wife's favorite, too. It was an afterthought. I'd stopped to take a picture of an old house and something about the dirt road grabbed my attention.

Butchered cow? I prefer the term pre-BBQ'd. The little guy kept moving on me. I agree about getting all of him in the shot but I figured I should take what I could get. I'll have that shot in the back of my head the next time I find a scene like that, though. Practice makes perfect, after all.

The bench image is the one of these pictures I used a filter on. I used nik midnight to give it a slightly blurred feel. I'll try to bump up the contrast and see how it comes out. If my website comes back up, I'll post the result.

Thanks again for the feeback, I really appreciate it. I'm just starting out with this and all of your comments help my learning curve tremendously.

Take care,
Jeff

Wonderful BWs. It's very difficult for me to choose one.
Tasteful compositions. ( I just would leave some extra space between the buildings and the frame borders in shot 3 and 4 ).

Well done !

Nice shots overall. The last one really captivates me and makes me want to be able to move the frame around to see the end of his other horn and snout.

At first I wish you had included it but then if it was all there maybe it would not captivate me.
