Thanks for the comment on (Big Dipper), Tristan. My camera maxes out at 30 second manual exposures so this is the best I could do even with a motorized equitorial mount :). It might also be cool to mount a camera on a stationary tripod and use a much longer exposure to see the paths the stars form across the sky, I think Darryl or someone mentioned that on one of my start images. Glad you enjoyed this cross between photography and freehand~

Tristan. Thanks for your comments on "Home Sweet Home". I'm glad you liked it. The thin gray line is meant to give a more gradual transition from the image to total black. I tried it both ways and found the line pleased me more and gave greater definition to the image. Thank you very much for your support of my images. It really means a lot to me.

Tristan, I really appreciate and agree your constructive critique of 'Thistle Bloom'. I was just reading an interview of Heather Angel. She was lamenting the problems of autofocus and how that has caused most people to assume that the camera knows the best focal point and therefore not optimize DOF and focus. Your timely suggestion has really helped bring this point home to me and I appreciate it.

Thanks Tristan for dropping by and commenting on "Prickly Situation". As always your comments are welcome.

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. Since man is mortal, the only immortality possible for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move. This is the artist’s way of scribbling; “Kilroy was here” on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must someday pass.

you are dead-on with the polarizer. it can really wreak-havoc with a 10mm lens, you have to be careful all the time, although it can be very good when you dont ruin your pictures with it. i have another 360 panorama where it is much more blatant, i think in lake of the horns it is subtle enough, to not stand out, unless you're familiar with the effect
