    ROL, if it is the same rock, you must have approached it from the other side from my view. Nice!

    If the change falls under the category of 'the randomness of nature' then it doesn't matter unless it is unsightly or affects a habitat. So I moved a rock or a branch. Last week it was where I put...

    Re: lens perspective question?

    I have a feeling the OP meant to say 'angle of view' or 'coverage' instead of perspective. I agree with the numerous posters who defined the term perspective.

    Re: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

    I made an image like that once. It didn't excite my friends, so it stayed on the SD card in my point and shoot.

    Not to criticize the photographer, but the art world has it's head up it's ass.

  38. Poll: Re: Two principal ways to search for a landscape shot (or is your way different?)

  39. Poll: Re: Two principal ways to search for a landscape shot (or is your way different?)

    The poll is useless. And so are answers like 'putting on a longer lens to get closer'. And some don't crop? What? That is so absurd since cropping is your MOST powerful compositional tool. And...
