Thanks for looking
Hi Joseph, yet again more excellent shots, the waterfall shots are outstanding and the
first of the two is totally awesome.
Joseph, your images are wonderful! Such clarity and sharpness. My favorite is the smoking rose. How did you do this?
Thanks Mark and Mary. It's always nice to get comments like these. Mary it's been a while. How have you been? The smoking rose is something I've been thinking about for a while as a way to get some original stock images up for sale. Sadly the smoking rose has gotten lots of looks but not sales yet. How I ended up doing it was having the dried rose against a black background of course, and using a lit stick of incense held just under the rose. During post work I cloned out any residual smoke and or incense stick out from under the image. Soon I will be trying to do this smoke and rose again to improve on it, as well as some smoke/wine/wine glass images. Thanks for the comments, much appreciated.
I'm doing good, Joseph, just not 100%. I keep thinking the knees will get better but its slow going.
Thanks for letting me know how you did the rose. I really liked how you did it.
Hi Joseph as usual all very nice images I especially like th frog and waterfall images......Beautiful
Hi Joseph. Love them all. I'm curious about the first waterfall image. Is it an artificial falls. I ask because of the visible sun dappled back ground visible for a goodly distance below and behind it.
I once lived in a city that created an artificial waterfall by pumping water from a river to a series of ported pipes that ran along a bridge high overhead.
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.
I also love them all Joseph. Love the frogs. It is a pity the green frog was camera shy - he could have turned around!
Particularly like the 1st waterfall. It appears as if you have taken it from within a sort of cave. Was this the natural lighting, or did you use lighting affects?
