@romanescue

This is a delicate and intriguing photograph with oodles of rewards to the viewer. I was intrigued by the chewed on leaves that are in the more diffuse b/g. I think many would be tempted to frame out those "defective" leaves, but I think they are making this picture more than just the patterns. The lighting is really nice here and provides tone, depth and contrast to the form. I may be seeing it wrong on the screen, but it looks to my eye like the plane of focus is about 1/3 up from the bottom, and I can't say that seems ideal to me. All things considered, I would probably prefer the focus to be sharper in the f/g where the large point is. That's a quibble. This works for me very well.

So what became of the philosophy behind the concept of Without Prejudice, then?

If anyone wants critique they know where to post and find it; this section is meant simply for display, not the questionable, sterile delights of second-guessing.

There are some relatively new members who might not be aware of the tradition. It's a very long thread and not everyone's going make a point of reading Rob's "mission statement" at the beginning.

Thanks Doug. That perfectly describes me, whom in fact did not read the opening post. My sincerest apologies to all who were offended.

2nd hand from a friend who switched to Nikon: it's this one, an original Minolta 16/2.8 fisheye

Thanks, it's a fun toy. This was the first weekend I could really try it.

Can't remember if I posted this self-portrait before - might have, but the memory doesn't ring anything. I like to think of it as a touch of the Hitchcocks...

Rob,

You look like a trio of signets traversing a lake en pointe.

Now that you mention it...

Stealth Bombers?

;-)

I watched a docu. last night in Norwegian, I think, with sub-titles as well as some spoken English: it was about a large sailing ship exploring into newly-opened waterways in Greenland (due to melt) and it was rather strange listening to the topics (mindsets?) that the various 'scientists' and artists and snappers along for the ride were discussing. I liked something one of the artists said, to the effect that artists know nothing, and that's pretty much what makes them special - tick.

Later, they were in a Zodiac-style thing and approaching the edge of a glacier and it looked very black; one of the guys said that it was creepy, as if nature was saying get the hell away from here, you don't belong. Mostly, they talked about the meaning of life. An interesting theory was that as we progress, we always outstrip the planet's ability to cope with what we do, that it's ever cyclical...

One memebr of the crew, a lady, was wearing a T-shirt that read: Fuck Everything. Become a Pirate.

Of course, it was all happening at around the time when programmes are half-seen and half-dozed through... what was reassuring, though, was when one of the scientists said that we shouldn't worry about the end of life as we know it, because, deep down below the surface there are all manner of creatures waiting their turn to come to the surface of the planet to assume their rôle. I felt so much better that I went to bed happy.

Ambiguity is in the eye of the beholder. Or is it the butt of the beholder?
