My mentor, teacher and sometime boss always told me to shoot projects. It took about 6 years until I started to listen to him and only then did I start to gain recognition, exhibit, etc. I've posted that article up for my students.

Context does matter, as near as I can tell.

It always helps to tell someone that they're looking at Great Art.

Just another circus?

Todd, that's a decent image.

Original toning might be over the top, but I often warm-tone my images as well. My personal split-toning recipe in LR is 48/48 hue and 2/4 saturation for highlights/shadows respectively. LensWorks uses slightly more reddish and more saturated 40/40, 10/10, which I sometime use as well, but not too often (see my Wildlife From the Street post for an example where it actually worked rather well)

Compositionally, you might have moved at the moment of capture a little bit as to separate the central, darker tree from the tree on the right, but even as-is is not a cardinal crime.

As Eric suggested, you might want to darken the sky a bit, avoiding blending it with the darker tree. You also might want to add a ND grad filter (in LR) to the bottom of the image, darkening the ridge.

Hello Chris,

thanks for the help and the info !

I've checked the confirmation mail I received when I bought the Oly/Fuji video and it contained the same link to the direct download. Unfortunately the link was not descriped properly, so I had no idea of it's purpose.

But now I've downloaded both videos.

Well, I had to try, Russ. Because I get a little tired of just replying "+1" to most of your posts.  Wink

... Slobodan recommended several books for me; they were excellent and I will see if I can find that reference...

There are three books I can not recommend strongly enough (two of which have nothing to do with photography, yet are highly useful for photographers):

1. Perception and Imaging: Photography--A Way of Seeing - my bible.

2. Pictorial Composition

3. Picture This: How Pictures Work - WARNING: Do not let anyone see you reading this book, they might think you regressed to a kindergarten level Grin

From what I can see it seems the LG does. But I can't speak for the quality of LG's software. I think I heard that Asus has it too, but I don't see any mention of it on the site you linked to.

No, the Spyder isn't garbage. It used to be (hence the bad reputation), but the 3 and 4 edition sensors are very good. Just make sure that the sensor is supported in the Asus/LG(?) software.

See if you can stretch the budget a little for an NEC or Eizo. It hurts now, yes, but pays off in the long run...
