Welcome to the Caedes net. I see these are your first steps... Thank you for your positive feedback on the "in the village of the Golden stream". I am glad you liked it so much and feel happy to give you the possibility to taste the fall colourful spectacle you missed so much. You see in Caedes everything is possible. You will be able to observe the changing seasons in South Africa. Stay tuned.

Thank you for a great comment on "spring is here". I wish I could ever catch an eagle.....
The Tatra Mountains in the background hold the snow most of the year and this was only late May.

Thanks for your helpful comment on "Barstow Sunrise" - I have shots of the sunrise with more sky, but this one was trying to capture the shiny rails as well. Still a very good and well-taken point, since the rails and land were mostly underexposed and not very interesting anyway ;-)

Hello krscully! Thanks for viewing and commenting on my Little Green Spider photo. I was searching my yard for things to photograph when I found this little guy on the end of a leaf. He is doing a good impression of the caedes spider isn't he? This is a macro at the cameras extreme settings.

Thanks for coming to visit "Spring Arrives". It's always nice to meet up with someone else who grew up in this area and can appreciate what it means to see tulips like these after a Southern Ontario winter. I bet you're not getting a whole lot of winters like that anymore! :)

Hey Kim,

Thanks for your comments on my posting "Window 3".

You wrote "hey Rob - did you do a manip on the windows? If not, that's some old glass (over time glass "runs", and individual panes become thicker at the bottom. Reflections become "wiggly" because of this). The slightly different angles on the hand-puttied glass are fabulous, and the wet really brings out the grain of the wood. Makes me miss a good southern-Ontario spring walk. Thanks for sharing. - cheers, kim "

I was struck by the old glass when taking this shot. It was what caught my eye and made the shot. Glad you noticed and appreciated it.

On my posting Ruin 4 you wrote:

"Banff national park, by any chance? (If yes, I have the exact same picture). Excellent composition. "

Thanks for the kind comment. While I have a few pictures from Banff in my gallery .. this particular photo was taken in Rockwood Ontario, Canada at a small conservation area (Park).

Hiya Kim! Thanks for being the first to comment on "Sleepy Time With Chiatal Lee". The first comment is always my favorite. If you like the nose shot of my puppy I have a picture of JUST his little brown nosey. It's a little strange but cute in a weird way. Thanks again for your comment.

hey Kim thanks for visiting CURRY ANYONE?

i take your point re the colours, i was however going for a slightly muted more natural view, colours and all. youre right it would be a quandry how to expose the take without washing the plate out, i went for this option :)

its an all natural day light (from the kitchen window) shot with a silver reflecting diffuser disk held pretty close to it just out of shot (note the highlight on the tom and the pepper on this side) this was to give the shiny veggies some shape and contour and also to take out the deepest shadows which were really quite deep indeed without it

then to isolate them, the whole plate and veggies were masked very carefully and the worktop heavily lens blurred in PS ... the intention was to give the plate and its contents max attention by the viewer although it also seems to lend a slightly out of context aspect to the plate further isolating it (do you agree?) ... im glad thats worked :)

> That you used a flash suprises and interests me though

i didnt
i used a silver reflector diffuser disk to reflect back the natural light
something like THIS
the girl is not normally included :P

to quote myself:
>shot with a silver reflecting diffuser disk held pretty close to it
> just out of shot

all the light in the image is natural daylight

dont worry we are all still on a learning curve
if you think you know it all ... you know nowt!
thats one of the best things about photography and experimentation

it might be my screen but i do see a good difference in the colour between the tom and the pepper
the pepper being more orangy esp around the top highlighted bit
the tom being quite a deep red
as to the curry powder that most defo looks saturated with a good amount of yellow here its not merely brown

have you calibrated your screen?
i do mine about once a week just incase something changes
and i compare calibrations i could have made a mistake the last time and have over cooked ( no pun in 10 did) some colour setting on the monitor
