Thank you Mandy

It´s not that often clouds are so defined (?), have such sharp edges. Have you got some similar pictures yourself?

Feel free to post in this thread if you want. Would be nice... (smile)

Mandy,

I was out today in the same area. I called for the clouds but they didn´t show up (smile)

Since you like clouds, visit

Hi Torgny, Thanks for tip on the cloud webpage. These are fantastic. I missed a good opportunity today on the way home from work. I don't take my camera with me because I don't want to get it stolen, but the clouds were showing off late this afternoon. We have had rain for the past 4 days, so when the sun does show, it also creates wonderful fluffy clouds and dramatic ones too.

Will hopefully get something this weekend....still supposed to rain. Not photos, but paintings from a local artist who lives and breathes cloudscapes. His paintings are hanging everywhere.....hope you enjoy them. Mandy

I very much enjoyed the link Torgny and will visit the Cloud appreciation society often. I think #'s 1 and 4 from your set are my favorites. Very nice!

Mandy,

Hope you got something today. If not, tomorrow is another day

Thanks for the link, great art. Naivism is by no standard an inferior art form. It shows the goodness of the heart.

Ethical aspects are always more important than estethical

Is Phil Epp considered as a naivist? Ivan Rabuzin, who I referred to is an artist from East Europe who´s name is mentioned in the same breath(?) as for instance Henri Rousseau.

You´ll like him. I can´t give you a specific link, but do some image search on his name by means of the search engines of your choice

Bob,

I am very happy that you like those pictures, especially since I always have liked the pictures that you post. Thank you very much, Bob

Regarding clouds. I used the home made frase "celestial lifestock". Perhaps "sky cattle" would be more "down to earth" (smile with a question mark) It´s hard to find the exact words in a foreign language

On the contrary. Your version makes me wonder (mind-set: proud, happy) if it really was me who was behind the camera that day with the clouds. It looks great. Thank you

Well, I have tried myself, as suggested, to make it in b/w but didn´t succeed very well.

I hope that you can say sometime, if you have the time, which of the above mentioned methods you used, and if it is #3 or #4, perhaps also the name of the program used

Thanks

Torgny
