Re: Tonight's Moon Stacked

.

I always admire your moon shots since you have some powerful gear to get good details. :) But I sense a misalignment or shift in juxta positioning where the craters are abundant towards the dark side of the moon. Otherwise it's good. :)

Thanks for sharing, Sury.

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

.

Thank you, Sury. :)

And, yes, the new adjustments make the shot look better to my eyes. :) Now there's a more pronounced negative space that make the roses stand out. The lilies look beautiful too.

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. :) Going to the dark side… and irrelevant to the flower thread. The fly just landed and froze its moves in the cool of the evening yesterday and I was able to shoot, albeit not the best of its sides. (I hope it won't offend anyone ) Yildiz Kalanchoe has the ability to grow pink and yellow tinted b...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. Hi, Sury; :) First of all, the flowers themselves are amazing, the roses being my favourites. I love how the water droplets are clear and enhancing the overall appearance of them. Personally I believe that the creamy roses deserve more exposure albeit the details on the petals and the leaves are a...

Re: Back to Life

. The way the blue sky and the stagnant water in the distance merge to create a continuum is impressive and there's a movie-like impression though you are irritated by the vignetting; it's like a pirate ship could emerge from the misty horizon any moment. (Reminds me of scenes from the Pirates of th...

You bee you, Sury. That's the beetiful way to go... :D

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. Hi, Sury, :) There are many opportunities in that garden… :) Many, many pots of colorful and interesting plants would be good subjects as well as good 'fall off' backgrounds. The bokehs would be good. :) Of the two shots you shared, I like them both: The first contains some harsh shadowy petals bu...

Re: Bloomy over Gloomy-Isolation Days' Flowers

. Hi, Sury; :) You've been busy... I like the first one as well even if the background is colorfully busy but within the context for being framed photos. There's also a nice halo / highlight lining that contours the orchid and makes the blossoms and stem more pronounced against the background. It re...

Good and considerate thought about not using the pool anymore because of drought but also sad to see it go. Now the garden area is a...

Re: Photos at home

Very nice, Sury. :)

I like the glass print approach. The tilting Pizza Tower photo can be a little dizzying for the stairs… :D
Those remaining empty wall spaces would be home to many more of your good tour photos. Such an available canvas…
