36 degrees part 7: ChitChat and stroll

I was so happy when digital photography became available for the masses. Simple because the so called "experts", of film and dark room specialist would have to dust their books and learn for a change... things like photoshop.  It's been fun watching them catch up, and catch up they must.

For the photographer...professional, that is, we are reaching that "embrace or perish era".

The "film is better than digital crap", just can not hold any longer, 'cept in very few cases ( And for how much more?) , maybe for novices they can still be swayed, but like it or not, film is breathing it's last breath :-).

Having said that, digital capture, is not there yet, but it will be, and photoshop, well, it can only get better and better. So learn it well or don't use it at all.

As the saying goes "No cheese, is better than any cheese"... Silly borders are also included! :-)

Okay,  I must admit, the above was to get peeps, especially film buffs mad at little ol' skee, does he mind? Nah, next week Skee's on a role.... See you all in Skeetown :-)

On to the picture above, Any ideas as to what these two women are saying? lol

Excellent photo. Nice contrast between the vastness of the view and the closeness of friends. Love it
i like the perspective....love how the women are on top of the hill with the expanse of the sky and field surrounding them. one suggestion would be to decrease the lightness of the shot. to me i think that its a bit too bright.
Mr Skee: Thanks, it looks fine on my cinema display, but a tad too bright on my powerbook. smile

super perspective, and the textures of the grass and the path work really well in black and white. I agree it might be just a little light but I like it !

i would like to have seen more of the subjects...much of the frame seems wasted.
Mr Skee: thanks for your comment, but do you really understand the dynamics of what you are saying, for me, I do think out every aspect of my compositions before I snap, If I had wanted to put up a portrait shot, don't you think I could?

I am all for total freedom of speech, smile hopefully you will visit my blog on a regular...and maybe learn something useful.

...of coarse i understand -smile We all have our likes and dislikes - Our own personal taste.

By nature I would to only leave positive comments for those I like and none for those that don't catch my eye. But you opened yourself up to it... or do you not understand the dynamics of unsolicited critisism?
