That needs a caption, Paul. "Who, us? Just having a discussion..."

Just curious.
Going through my photo library, I realized that I rarely take pictures of people actually. So this week I decided to play with street photography. It's pretty challenging and fun!

Same thing FIREd - I generally wait until people are out of the shot before I take it, unless they're a key element of the composition. The street shot I posted earlier was an attempt to correct that.

I used to shoot square format film and still keep an eye out for a shot that may benefit from a square crop.

This is Mallard Canyon in Canyonlands National Park in Utah. I processed three shots into a panorama and decided I liked this square crop better




Flower from the garden

Love all the photos. When I go to a craft show and photographers are there, I look for ones that are selling blank greeting cards with their photos attached. I like them because it's unusual and so much cooler than a hallmark greeting card.
Mr. Paul, The canyon shot is cool and the flower looks like the center is made from a piece of candy. Is the flower a poppy?

A couple days a go I saw some blank greeting cards with local photos and they were very well done. I may try to cobble something together like that.

Thanks, and yes that's a poppy from our Denver garden. That's one of the many things we can't grow now that we are at 8500 ft.

For me, the cards are miniature art and I buy them wherever we go. I got some beautiful ones last Fall on Martha's Vineyard. Don't forget to put your address on the back of the card for free advertising. I've contacted people that way to buy cards.

Wish I was better with my camera but it works great for pics of our cars.

Aren't we suppose to comment on the photos? I'm fairly new on this forum. When you say constructive do you mean critique a photo as far as angle, lighting, subject matter? I couldn't because what I see on my screen isn't necessarily what you see on yours.

I hope this thread remains centralized. I rarely comment because 1 buck and what I know about photography could buy you, well, 1 buck.
