Well done. The almost monochromatic coloring tells the story of drought with some what gray skies and no rain promise.   Posted: 01/13/2020 10:42:47

Hi Beverly....Good to hear from you and read your nice comment. I would love to return to the Palouse in the Spring. For me, it's a special kind of place. I will have to check your groups periodically and see what you are up to.   Posted: 01/16/2020 08:48:20

A coincidence...after reading your comment I checked Group 48. Interesting interchange between you and Margaret Sprott. I may be in a similar situation this weekend. The Wisconsin Chapter is selecting photos for the Chapter Showcase. One of the images I will enter has a background of a piece of art and a foreground of my creation. I'll post it on Group 9 next month and let you know the outcome.
I will be in Florida in April...The Gulf side. A week long tour.   Posted: 01/16/2020 11:49:40

Belong to several camera clubs and a recent competition had one photo that was a photo of a blown up ad (photo) in a store. It placed second, the first place photo was of a model being photographed for an ad by a professional photographer. The judge IS a PROFESSOR of photography and has a degree in Art. Another competition, award "Best in Show" to a photographer who uses the same camera phone app on every photo she has submitted and she has won several awards. Finally, one club went to an art museum photographed the paintings and several were submitted for competition. I've been told I shouldn't compete because I do composites and "That's Not Photography!"   Posted: 01/20/2020 14:12:16

I do not believe that what you describe constitutes "photographing someone else's art". The issue in her case was that no change was made to the art itself.   Posted: 01/16/2020 15:07:06

Very nice scene! The windmill behind the rusty truck is just the perfect touch. I'm debating with myself on cropping. The rolling hill (viewer's right) tells me that this is the Palouse but I wish it balanced with the space to the front of the truck. Lovely sky, peaceful scene!!!   Posted: 01/20/2020 14:18:19

Hi Priscilla: You are lucky to find a deserted truck in the field which makes your picture stand out nice but I feel you needed more space in the front of the truck and less space in the back for better composition. Timing is perfect to photograph this kind of subject.

I feel very strongly about "photographing some else's art" and it simply should not be done. If we are photographing someone taking a picture of the art, it is a different story. I also agree that more space in the front would have been beneficial.   Posted: 01/27/2020 12:01:16
