I was trying out the subject of patterns. Wonder whether I have made sense of it. Comments will do. Kind regards.

Hmmm. 1/60th. Did you take that hand held? If so your a lot more steady then I am.

I think this a nice picture, but the crop is a little tight. Did you take any different angles?

i agree that the crop is a little tight, but i think if i saw this hanging on a wall, i would find it quite interesting.

Oh thanks folks for putting this huge smile on my face. You comments and remarks really mean I am getting somewhere. About the crop which seems too tight, I decided to put the original. I have fiddle a bit with the contrast. Is this a better one then?

Again, thank Dale, Crawford and Julies:-)

i like the crop better, but i am also a big fan of abstract. you were shooting for pattern? i think the crop hit's the mark.


Aumma45 Oct 30, 2005 12:06 AM

That is right Scot, I was shooting for patterns and want it tight to bring out the pattern. Thanks for looking.

With the picture as it is the first crop is better.

Very nice

Dale, this was hand held. I am still learning the art of holding a camera steadily. It comes with time. Thanks for looking and kind regards.

I like the cropped shot. The tonal range is very nice. Good job.

Carrots Oct 31, 2005 1:11 PM

Good shot.

I have been watching your work for a while now, since you started about the same time as I have. This is definitely the best I have seen from you to date, and I am sure I will see a lot better from you in the future.

Here is what I learned about hand holding a camera... I can't do it. I prop, mono pod or tripod when the shutter slows down. Hand holding is a gift... And I ain't got it.


PS: For those learning English and using this website to help you,NEVER REPEAT THAT LAST SENTENCE!

my presupposition was that learning is a life time phenomena. If all of us had completed the process of learningand were at the zenith of learning, this forum would otherwise be unnecessry. If any one and I mean anyone were to say that he/she does not need any further learning, please do let me know how to get there.. In my langauge we say: "a container that is full needs no further filling. :-):mad:"

Kind regards

Indeed, Dustin, LadyhawkVA, Carrot and many others have accompanied me since I joined the forum that is four months ago. I say thank you; your patience and persitence in guiding, advicing, commenting and even outrightly saying a certain photo does not appeal to you is paying off.

The satisfaction that you are elevating someone to the heights of good photography should put a smile on your face. Indeed grateful for appreciating the patterns.

Kind regards
