    The light is certainly well scattered in these two images.

      Once in a while some light gets through our continuously overcast sky and I’m lucky enough to have a camera with me. Thanks, Steve.

    Picture on top is excellent: texture, color and vignette. Love it as a square too.

      Thanks, John. I really value your opinion. I have always been fond of the square format since my first camera was a Yashica D, a 2 1/4 square format. It forces you to see from a non-traditional viewpoint.

        Yashicamat 124G was my first. 🥇

          I shot one of those a few times long ago. A step up from the D and a beautiful handling camera.

            I remember paying just under $200 for it, an amazing deal given the quality of that optic.

    I really like the abstract golden tones in that top one!

      Thanks, Howard. There was a minor enhancement (using the HSL scrubby sliders) in LR. I don’t know how often others use this panel in LR but I find it invaluable.

        I use it frequently and totally agree!

    What a nice muddle (the top photo) and attractive sprinkling of light (bottom photo). The light in both makes me think that spring won’t be too awfully far away.

      Monday, March 20th!!! That’s the first day of Spring (in most parts of the US. It’s not that far away (although in Webster (where life is worth living) real spring-like weather is 5 or 6 weeks further out). Thanks so much, Linda.

    Looks like the state of social discourse that is and what we wish it to be.

    I like the tone of the second photo with the ghosts of leaves that were.

    • oneowner February 21, 2023 / 7:40 am

      I liked the way the early sun hit those few leaves. Thanks, E.

    One-fourth the number of bones, perhaps, but not one-fourth the mass of all the bones in the body.

      My offer for you to fact-check this blog still stands, Steve.
