Allen, thanks for showing us what you are doing with your MM. And thanks for not HDRing the crap out of them like I see way too much of. Your images look very good. If I get the notion I will put up some at some point.

Thanks Gary,

I process my files in photoshop (now in CS6) and I approach it pretty much the way I would if I were working in a traditional darkroom. If I can see the process or the technique that pretty much ruins a shot for me. The processing, in my opinion, should be seamless and the image should be what you see not how it was created.

Allen for the most part I agree with you. But sometimes the processing will poke it's head up in skies and I can live with that. I love a dramatic sky.  ;D

Gary, don't get me wrong, I love photos that have little resemblance to what the scene looked like originally. I just don't want to see the processing. I love a dramatic sky to and do try to get them when appropriate. I just don't want to see the processing first and then thats all I see. Adams had dramatic skies but I never saw the processing first or could see how he did it like obvious burns dodges. I really don't care for glowing HDRs and burn and dodge halos around things. Thats what i was referring to when I said the processing should be seamless.

Hey all,

I received some really good news yesterday. I was selected for this exhibit at the Soho Gallery in New York. It was a juried show and only 40 images were chosen from over 2000. The opening is July 1.

Heres the info..

If anyone is going to be in New York on July 1 please stop by.

I was selected for this exhibit at the Soho Gallery in New York. It was a juried show and only 42 images were chosen from over 2600. The opening is July 1.

Heres the info..
http://www.sohophoto.com/participate/competitions/national/

And here is the photograph that they selected.


Here are some 8 1/2 X 11 handouts I made for the exhibit.


And besides having one of my photos selected to be in the exhibit at the Soho Gallery in New York, I just found out that I was selected to have a one man exhibit at the Rangefinder Galley here in Chicago at 300 W Superior probably next July but the exact month hasn't been determined but it will be sometime next summer. If you can't make New York and live near Chicago please come by that exhibit next summer.
