Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

I always love Christmas lights. Thanks, Jeff! As I already wrote to Sury, I find it difficult subject. Merry Christmas to you too! :-) -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography: http://www.yearofthealpha.com Flickr-account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/1...

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

This one I can interpret your intention as capturing the holiday spirit without necessarily having a "typical" image, not withstanding if that is indeed your intention. :D You know, I find these kind of subjects them most difficult ones and I tend to drift away from them. It's like Eiffel...

Re: Exhibit your B&W shots

Great shots from Andy. My eye is drawn especially to the first one, because of tree. Also, interesting to see your take with B&w landscape. Very nice. -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography: http://www.yearofthealpha.com Flickr-account: http://www....

Re: Christmas time

This is an interesting concept. Santa is outside inside a "bubble". People enter the bubble (perhaps, warm and cozy) and have the picture taken from outside. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7540/15893406840_9c9b24fa4c_b.jpg This one caught my eye!! Mesmering indeed!! Wish we would have som...

Re: Introducing Year of the Alpha – 365 Days of Sony Alpha

Toni, It is a nice shot on its own, but I am not able to figure out your intention for this shot. When I started this season I originally had an idea that it would develop from 'black' to 'white' as the snow would start to fall from the skies. Unfortunately there isn't any snow and everything is qu...

Thanks guys, it's a nice difference in my eyes as well even if the second picture doesn't work so well by itself.. -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography: http://www.yearofthealpha.com Flickr-account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/

Re: 3 random pictures from 2007

To my eye the rabbit is too much of a snapshot, but the two pictures after it are really great. The sunset has some sort of psychological effect since it's so dark at the same time. The mountain is great because of how it shows the scale of things. Oh man I wish I would be right there to experience ...

Re: Exhibit Portrait shots

These are great Jeff. I like the first one especially. Brisky looking fellow and the small crocodile on a sweater makes me smile. :-) -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography: http://www.yearofthealpha.com Flickr-account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/109262328...

2012. Some of the girls relaxing between Nutcracker shows in their dressing room at the Touhill theater in St. Louis. They referred to their dressing room as the "aquarium." Hah, I see you as well! aquarium indeed! -Toni -- Toni Ahvenainen (1976) Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha...

Re: Stitching Gone Wild

I agree with Jeff, the last one is the best. Looking a pictures like this makes me miss high altitude places. There are none at Finland and everytime I get even to 500 meters it feels so awesome. I really love the mountains and highest place I've been was aiguille du midi in France (12,605' or 3,842...
