Thank you Mikel for the comments on "Horseshoe Falls".It sounds like you know photography,more so than I.I have heard about the thirds rule but I never think of it or care to when taking photos.Sometimes these things just fall into place I suppose.I appreciate your comments...Rob

Thanks Mikel, That's a very nice compliment, re Game Called.....
Photography, to me, is all about creating emotion or strong reaction, and because it's such a subjective medium, success is
relatively rare. It's nice to know, that every now and then, you created something that prompted someone to stop and reflect.
Many thanks.

Hello Mikel, welcome to Caedes.
I am glad you liked A New Beginning!
I like to play with the filters sometimes. Nice to get a second perspective on an image.

Hey Mikel, welcome to Caedes. Thanks for your comments on my posting titled "Bracebridge 8".

You wrote "The subject is really really interesting, so much happening there and it raises all kinds of curiosity. (Why is there water gushing out of the foundations of a house?) The severe conditions only add to the interest and the way you've captured it all is excellent. "

Kind words indeed, thank you. To your question about "the house" The building you mention is actually an generating station for electricity powered by the water you see gushing through the sluice.

Glad you liked the shot!

Hi Mikel: Thanks for your comments on "Reflective Patterns". I'm pleased you liked it. I tried different DOF shots of this and because of the lower light, the speed of film I was shooting and the movement of the water; anything with greater Depth Of Field didn't stop the water movement. It became cloudy and this was the only one that wasn't that way.

Hello Mikel!
I truly enjoyed reading your comment on my "lonely" pic. I am glad you were able to see my perspective! So many times I seem to "miss" in expressing what I want to show.
Thanks so much for taking the time and consideration to write ! Best Wishes always! Terri

Kia Ora Mike, thanks so much for taking the time to comment so fully on Meltdown and Hint of Pink. Meltdown actually does remind me of a Battenburg cake icing :) You have a point about the border on the rose. I was puzzled once before when someone mentioned a green border and here it is again - it displays as black on my monitor but have checked it out on another flat screen monitor and yes, it is green. I think I may have to change my light/shade :)I appreciate your kind comments on them both. Your sunrise picture is very beautiful, it must have been a wonderful sight.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I say what I say because that is my honest opinion. I don't kiss ass because I find that gross and repulsive.

hi mikel, thank you for your comment on the grandest. the grand canyon is hard to photograph (for me). it is just so big. i would say that a wide angle lens is a necessity. there is always a blue haze around there. i used a polarizing filter. then when i put it on the computer i upped the saturation and the contrast. those things are what made it look the way it does. i'm very glad you liked it. jen
