I like this image Art. Very nice it ia the kind os photography I like. I made just a minor adjustment to straighten the symmetry, without changing anything from the post produced image.
And as you can see I didn't flip the image.😂   Posted: 05/09/2023 08:51:55

I love this image. The symmetry is pleasing to my eyes and I think the pastels compliment the "painterly" effect of the ICM. I like how the dark areas divide my attention and it makes me feel that it's ok to scan along that reference point at my leisure. For me it's the kind of art I could hang on my wall. Just plain remarkable in it's simplicity and yet it evokes something bigger than life. Well done.   Posted: 05/09/2023 21:01:11

Art not sure why but I always save you for last when adding my comments.
You surely listened and learned at the zoom meeting for high-key. And then you go ahead and nailed it. And then you go ahead and take it over the top. Can you tell that once again I love what you created. In my opinion this is exactly what was taught and then some. NICE!!!   Posted: 05/16/2023 20:12:35

I like the watercolor effect in this image and the high key. But i found the image a little bit too bright . Just my taste . I think your new exploration can lead you toward something that I am looking forward to witnessing. Again , it is very inspiring. Well done and keep exploring it is rewarding.   Posted: 05/16/2023 20:26:33

Art, I really like your how you converted your picture using the high key filter. It looks like a watercolor painting, beautifully done, love the green, gold and reddish tones,.
On another note, I want to learn more about high key photography and Marge mentioned a zoom meeting on this topic. By chance was she referring to one of PSA's webinar videos? If so, I'll have to plan on checking it out.

Thanks Sylvia. The high key presentation was to my photo club PASFLA (Photo Arts of South Florida) by Lisa Langel. She has a course on High Key photography. Here is a link.   Posted: 05/31/2023 22:02:36
