    There is a lot of good input above. Regarding what you said, ..."The colors are beautiful, but is the lack of edge sharpness which makes the prints unusable."..., forgive me if you are well aware of...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    That is a pretty impressive debut there, _tf_. I've never been to Scotland, but from what I've seen if you're up to the challenges of the climate it's a rewarding place to work.

    Re: Digital Prints - Horrors

    PDM, you haven't mentioned what image editing software you are using. Photoshop (for instance) allows you to simulate how the image should look when printed. This requires you to tell PS what printer...

  8. Re: Is it Legally Permissible to Photograph Modern Headstones in a Cemetery?

    My guess (and it is only that) is that it depends on the policy of whatever organization--church, etc.--owns the property, as it would with photography on any other private property. As a general...

    Re: What makes a photograph "good"?

    One way that a photograph can be good is when it portrays a subject in such a way that it seems both familiar, and strange, at the same time. The "cognitive dissonance" this involves keeps us coming...

    Composition is part of making images that reflect the way you see the world. I think this is partly why some photographers' pictures are often instantly recognizable as "theirs".
