Re: New photographs in PF gallery on 10-31-09
- The PhotoForum members' gallery/exhibit space was updated OCT 31 , 2009.
with work now on display at: http://people.rit.edu/andpph/gallery.html
Michael Hughes - It hasn't killed me yet
[Chris] The deadly weed has not yet reaped its harvest but it will in time.
I like the "Genre" of the picture. It has a nice atmosphere. Do they REALLY
dress like that?
Dan Mitchell - Tate Modern
[Chris] The Tate Modern is a good place for photography and it is allowed.
It was a power station once and many of them of that age have gone. I think
it would be nice if one such station was preserved intact as a folk museum
but I don't think there are any left.
Don Roberts - Autumn
[Chris] These leaves are the attractive side of autumn. It is interesting
that while most of the animal kingdom is stuffing itself for hibernation or
otherwise preparing for the winter shortages, mankind is so well prepared we
can use our amazing technology to record just the light trace of the scene
and appreciate the beauty having no fear of starving over winter.
Jim Snarski - Evolution
[Chris] We merely copied them!
Jim Davis - Trees
[Chris] I'm not impressed by this image. It sort of looks untidy. It is the
sort of reconnaissance image that a visiting flying saucer might catch.
D.L. Shipman - Solomon's castle, Arcadia
[Chris] I interpret "Arcadia" to mean "fairy land" so this is a theme park I
suppose - but are we getting mixed up as Solomon was not a fairy but a King
who is mentioned in the Bible. I think he was a Jewish King. So what is his
castle doing in fairy land?
Christopher Strevens - Alien Visitation?
[Chris] These "corn circles" are interesting. I always thought that they
were of human origin made by local members of the "Corn Circle Society" but
then I saw one form when I was out walking in that part of Western Britain.
It just took about two minutes as an invisible finger traced out the outline
taking away the wheat in what turned out to be a complex pattern.
John Palcewski - Dancer
[Chris] Well all I can say is YAPG (Yet Another Pretty Girl).

Check out my incredible fuse panel - the PC-8 is a hit!

- Thanks for the help.I can now see a full gallery and now know, for instance that Vonnegut has neither taken up dancing nor had a photoshop gender transformation.Michael

Solomon, located near Arcadia Florida.
Remember. Remember the fifth of November...

did you arrive at the title?
> Dan Mitchell - Tate ModernExcept for her face not being particularly sharp, it's a nice
industrial architecture shot. Maybe modern needs to be more
iconoclastic now-a-days to actually speak "modern" to us.
> Don Roberts - AutumnQuite a few pleasing things here - the nice variety of colors in the
leaves, the shiny surfaces and edges, the tidy framing in the upper
right corner. If you set this up, placing the leaves where you did,
you might have arranged them so that the vague whiteness in the upper
left wasn't there.
> Jim Snarski - EvolutionReally makes you wonder whether it would be better if the gull were
the sharp object.
> Jim Davis - TreesLeafless/lifeless. Well, not really leafless, but the initial
impression is that the leaves have already fallen and we're looking
at late fall. It seems to me that one should seek out only those
places where some real organization is evident in this kind of shot.
> D.L. Shipman - Solomon's castle, ArcadiaA building covered in quilt batting! Are they planning on shingling that?
> Christopher Strevens - Alien Visitation?Just a snap. Needs a lot of reconsideration before you're finished
with that location, Chris.
> John Palcewski - DancerWow. Right out of the '30s. But no sense of dance here. Harsh dyed
hair color, sharp edges all around, and no support garment for the
breasts. Makes one wonder what sort of dance she might be thinking
Friday, folks. Time to send in your submissions for next week.
Thanks to all for sending in stuff for this week!

Emily L. Ferguson
New England landscapes, wooden boats and races
- Thanks, Emily. Yes, I did some rearranging. Nature is just so random,
you know. But my thought was that the vague whiteness, which was
another leaf under the table, added a sort of ghostly quality. Maybe it
didn't need a ghostly quality? This is one of the great things about
the PF gallery; you can throw things out and get people's reactions
without really nailing your ego to the wall for folks to shoot at.
