Zig I always sort them down to 20 proofs to show the clients, then proceed from there with final processing. Still takes a lot of time.

Tullio, you are right, to over processed for my taste to, I have a portfolio of pictures I show clients with different levels & strengths of processing & 99% of the time they pick the heaviest processing for their pics, so its not so much what I like, as what the person holding the money likes. Like Hards80 hinted it is what the client wants, photographers (especially me) are to picky. once I figured this out, (what clients like) I sold more prints. the picture I posted did lose some nose detail in the jpeg coversion for the web but the Tiff print is much more detailed.

P.S. I would usually have cloned out all the lose hair strands also but the client's mother didn't want that done & she owns her own hair salon. Go Figure?!

The shots look good enough to me on a medium level.. that meaning with not a whole lot of knowledge of shooting in my back ground just the basics.. With what you said of the tree in shot#1 I see you actually meant #2 I did not even see that tree I was looking at the subject.... so that tells me that most of the people that get these shots are going to look at the subject not the tree growing out of his head.... and any ways shots that have bloppers in them make the world laugh as well so don't worry about any of that stuff in shots and just be the best you can be or better your self while being.... Ya have not drowned down there have ya?

Hey Zig, I'm a weather geek. If you want to track Earl I recommend this site:

Stay safe! (But get us photos...)

PS: Know where the slang term duesy came from? Almost a century ago the Duesenberg was widely regarded as the most elegant automobile available.

Well, you're right. We're our own biggest critics. The parents were pleased with what I gave them. So, that's all that counts, in the end.

The rain hasn't arrived yet. But it will and we'll have a pretty good blow come through here. The last major storm that came thru here was Hurricane Bob in '91.

I wouldn't mind if another storm didn't hit here for another 19 years.

Hi Ted,

I'll bookmark that site. This is getting rather interesting. No telling where this one's going just yet.

No way to pull it out of the water? That sucker is bigger than any 4 east-coast States taken together...

I'm an ex-Navy officer. I'm sure you know this but the worst place for ships to be, in bad weather, is near land. Land tends to rip the bottoms out of ships. The Navy always scrambles ships out of port when a hurricane is on the way. Here's the news from Norfolk today:
"NORFOLK -- Navy ships and aircraft from North Carolina to Maine are ready to get underway to get out of Hurricane Earl's path, if conditions warrant."

Just a suggestion.

Hi Ted,

Just got back from the marina. The marina owners tell me that at the first sign of a change in direction of Earl, they'll pull the boat. The owners work on the property on a daily basis. They have two giant lifts that can yank the boat out of the water in a couple of minutes. They'll store inside metal Quonset buildings.

Appreciate your concern and suggestions. Even though I've a trailer for the boat, I'll let them yank it out using the lift. Reason being, the two ramps this evening were already tied up with owners pulling their boats out of the water. Tomorrow will be a zoo there.
Zig
