      <<what do you see in these images that you don't already do yourself?>>

      Well.... where should I start?

      Specially with Dez Santana's work, it is;

      the light
      the composition
      the richness of the colors
      the sharpness of the image
      the feel for the moment

      Some of these is not a matter of not knowing how to do it as much as a matter of being able to recognize when they happen: having just the correct light, or the right spot where to shoot from.

      Here is an analogy for you baseball fans: you can be a great hitting instructor and not be able to hit a 40mph slow pitch.

      When you are trying to capture the moment, you need to recognize the moment.

      I'm working on it ... but I'm still not there ... if that makes any sense.

      It makes total sense; I can appreciate "the moment" that others have captured in images, but I struggle with seeing it in my viewfinder.

      Dez Santana's work looked lovely, but I only saw small sized examples so it was hard for me to judge. I thought you were referring to something about the "pano" technique when you were talking about having much to learn, rather than the other photographic elements.

      Another recommended link to visit is Max Lyons Digital Image Gallery. He stitched a gigapixel image (over 1,000,000,000 pixels) which was exhibited in Las Vegas in 2004.To stitch the images he has develop his own program, PTAssembler, a front end GUI for the powerful Panorama Tools.

    Not seeing SOME images
    by mikajomc
    Recently I noticed I couldn't see someone's image they had posted. I commented on it in that thread. It turns out others could see it just fine. And I saw it just fine briefly. Then a few minutes later it was gone. There is nothing there that even shows an image should be there.
    here's the thread...

    Do you judge by the befores or the afters?
    by cyberphonics
    Greetings all! Just curious about opinions on this and I figured that retouchers would be more familiar with and have had more access to the Befores than the general public who typically only sees the Afters.

    Looking for opinions
    by Frank Lopes
    When I post images on my website I look for a couple of things:
    images that I'm proud to show
    images that represent different kinds of work
    images with interesting/captivating subjects

    I came across in the Library of Congress a series of photos of Native Americans...
