Thanks UD,

I was walking in the Boston Common when I saw this alignment. The church (Arlington St. Church) and the Hancock Tower (blue wall of glass) are about 1/4 mile apart, and the original and iconic Old Hancock Building (on left) was begging to get in the frame.

Boston is a great city to juxtapose the old and new and in between.

THAT is a culture. Along with fitness and such.




But I'm going to carry this over and see what other culture would be presented.
So, TFP is of culture:

Default TFP is of culture

" the integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for learning and transmitting knowledge to succeeding generations "

Within these walls, the Smithsonian collects, stores, and displays artifacts that preserve and record our culture.

Glad you got in. My wife's niece's husband used to drive late model NASCAR.

I haven't tried hummingbirds since I got the new lens but I sure want to try again.
Here's my blur:



TFP is sharp, but not just in focus because that last one was blur. I mean sharp like edged. Don't make me have to come over there. You know what I'm saying.

Let me rephrase.. overexposed to "high key" for the following photo. This is a pic of my wife on our wedding day as an example.

I'm not sure if this qualifies for "High Key". I think maybe I'm too good to take high key pictures...Joe King.
I've seen them before but have never tried. It seems like using flash would be the easiest way, if not required? in order to make them.
I've been afraid to use my old flash on my new camera in case it may funk up the electronics. Do you have to be careful which flash you use on a camera?






If my image qualifies, then appropriately the next photo should be one in low light. "Low Key?"

Really just more trendy words for over and underexposed. They can work if done correctly to create an ethereal image or something moody on the other end of the scale.

Not sure if this qualifies as a low key shot either. Taken in Salem, MA last October.

TFP is vintage.

I know I have vintage pictures somewhere. I find family pictures all over my hard drive. It's ridiculous.

This why folks like my cousin try to push Lightroom on us.


Supposedly it helps you help to organize your photos.

Do those who now pay for Adobe subscriptions (the only option Adobe now offers) realize when Adobe's cloud servers go down (again) or they are not in a data inaccessible area, they can not use these service whose MINIMUM cost is $120/year - EVERY year ?????

$10/month is cheap entertainment for me. Some folks go out to clubs or pay for cable television programming. I do neither, so I have no issue justifying the cost. Although I need their server for updates etc, you download the program, so you don't have to be online to use it.

Oh I don't think you understand how pathetic I am. Why do you think I got into paperhanging? I have sorry organizational skills, which is especially sad since I'm trying to start up a new business. But I refuse to launch it until I have all my ducks in a row.
I'm creative and a workhorse. I'm trying to put together a team to exploit what I see is possible in the artistic world.

Here is the tip of the iceberg.
I created a folder to house my pictures temporarily, until I could find a permanent folder or outside hard drive for them.
I named it "Temporary". This is what it looks like:



So I ditched that folder and created it's successor, "New Temporary". This is what it looks like:




But that doesn't include my web-sized files that I e-mail or post on forums like PT:





Please note the name of one of the folders, "Another Dump".

That doesn't include my files of what I think is important.

Yeah, I think I would only crash the Cloud.
