In penance for posting a picture I didn't take, here's one I did:

Again, click for bigger.

Crummy camera, but an amazing view. "Hiking" up Pico Duarte in the Dominican Republic. Oops, I still need to fix the skew. It's hard to take a picture straight on the back of a mule that's trying to gallop.

Here's one I took today of an old Spanish fort in Puerto Rico.

It's actually two stitched together since it was too large for a single photo.

What a wonderful shot. I can't imagine living in such an incredibly cool-looking place like this. To find anything remotely resembling this in America, you'd have to break out construction tools and hammer up a movie set. You are *so* lucky.

The light and color contrasts, the composition, the variation in textures, the earthen red, the mottled ceiling, the stark white pillars, the smoothness and reflection of the water, the beam of light. Just... Wow!

I used to do a lot of photography, and hadn't realized till looking at this photo just how very much I miss the pleasure of putting together a stunning shot like this one. To capture such perfect beauty on film means that you can keep it forever and enjoy it anew at any time. How many things in life can you say that about? Not too many, I'd say.

Here's another one of the fort from PR.

I know nothing of composition though, so to BB.

That's Orion indeed. Unfortunately Betelgeuse is missing from the top left corner.

@BB. I sorta agree with you. And I do have more pictures with a nicer composition than the other three, but I personally sorta like what's depicted in this selection.

@Alcimedes:
Amazing shot! Nice colors, very violent sea.

Ah, that wasn't a flame. Just thought the tone was a little off for what should be, as you point out, an opinion.

Perhaps if you're going to say something critical of a photograph, at least offer some suggestions as to what could have been done to improve it. There's nothing wrong with being critical, but it should be constructive. Criticism for the sake of criticism is best kept to oneself, at least in this thread.

spikeh, what is your problem?

Did I fail to offer a suggestion for improvement?

Does everything have to be positive?

I'd love high-res versions of the last two. The stars in that last one are ace.

No, it just came across as a bit glib is all, in the face of what are clearly very good photos I'm sure yours are miles better, though.

It is not a competition. I was making a suggestion for improvement, which I find more helpful than even just bland positive comments.

Bobsky's "colorful cavern" shot is pretty amazing I must agree. The only thing I'd do is straighten it out a bit and crop some of the right-hand column out as it draws your eye away from the rest of the composition. Nice shot!

Also the Apple and windmill shots are very cool. Wish I lived in a town like jules; I'd be out shooting non-stop. Suburbia sucks.

...into the light of a dark black night.

I like these two. The first, because sunrise (sunset?) is a stunning time of day; the shot has nice clarity; and I like the contrast of the sky with the darkness of the ground, and the sun's intense brilliance sandwiched in between.

It's ironic that this visually-appealing creation is for the purpose of moving... dirt. Juxtaposing the intricate fabrication of man versus the ancient plainness of the earth. Okay, I'll shut up now.

You know what, I think you should get a nice print of the last shot, frame it, and present it to your boss (or the company president ) as a gift. It wouldn't cost you too much, and would be a nice (suck-up) gesture.

If 'scads' of people loved it, you could offer prints for sale, rake in the cash, retire young and go live on an island in the South Pacific.

Okay... maybe not.

Alright, here are some of my favorite pictures. All of them were taken by me, so I'm gonna post small versions here; click on any given image to get the full-sized version. If 10 images is too many for one post, I can split it into several smaller posts...

Without further ado, here they are:























Enjoy! I hope you guys like them.

Apparently I call the cops when I see people litter.

I like the vertical shots; I understand that the others are probably meaningful personally, but I don't know you... and they don't elicit enough emotional connection to make me want to see it for myself...

Not meant to be overly critical...
