Hoi Paul,

Thanks for the comments on "Carriage Driving Horse Show". This guy (and the 2 on the back of the carriage from which you only can see one helmet) gave such a speed that it would be unwise not to wear a helmet. I saw 2 carriages fall down.... and yes I took a picture of those events too. Anyway, thanks again for your nice words.

Hey there, tks for your recent comments on Sunshiny!
The reason for the purchase of the 35 mm camera, was for the better zoom and quality on images. I find the digital camera that I have just doesn't do it for me anymore! Great for the macros sometimes but that is all.

Hi Paul! :)

Thank you for the kind words today. It always means a lot to hear from you. I'm still feeling bad about not thanking you enough for all the great comments you have made on my work.

I like the way you commented on "Pasture by the Creek". I know exactly what you mean. You will be happy to know it's surrounded by roads and houses that doesn't quite mix with this piece of "perfect" landscape. ^_^

Sometimes one can use the camera to "adjust" reality a bit. Just by simply choosing not to take some parts of an environment into the composition of the shot. It's a very beautiful piece of nature but it's not a big place. It takes perhaps five or ten minutes to walk the length of this small ravine (far beyond what can be seen in that shot) but it's only as wide as you can see there. On the left side is the outskirts of the city I live in and on the right is some flat agricultural landscape that is far from interesting...

I'm really glad you liked my spider shot too. :)

Cheers, I'll try to get in touch the next few weeks... ;)

Thanks for your compliments on "Stinkhorn (Phallus Impudicus) Stinkzwam". This one is without flies but sometimes they're "blue all over" by these flies sitting on the head. The mushroom season has started so I hope to see some nice pictures of them from you too.
I search for the Red Fly Agaric mushroom which I think is the most beautiful one.

Hi Paul: You are right it is remakable that they look so much alike. I wonder if they are related in the animal kingdom.
I do appreciate your comments on "Pit Stop".
You're right it does kind of look like a Tom-Cat ready for take off.

Bad artists always admire each other’s work. They call it being large-minded and free from prejudice. But a truly great artist cannot conceive of life being shown, or beauty fashioned, under any conditions other than those he has selected.

Thank you so very much for your kind comment about my, Mount Princeton and Cottonwood Trees. I am truly humbled by your words. I have never photographed these beautiful trees in the past as they are easily overlooked when the Aspens are in color. Since we missed the Aspens this year we turned to the Cottonwoods for color. Much more difficult to photograph. They are now on my list of fall colors. I hope that you can visit some day to enjoy the beauty of my country, especiallyl Colorado.

Also, thanks for commenting on "Trouble with a T".

I cut out the center cow, then switched the image to a b&w. I added yellow and then orange to make it a bit more sepia-ish, followed by substantial decreases in brightness and contrast. I softened the whole thing a great deal to make it seem more abstract, then I patched in the full color cow in the center with normal brightness and contrast. The other cows look like I changed the colors a bit, but the trees and river are the big give away that the environment is not in color.

You asked... :-)

Hello Paul,

Believe me or not I hate rainy, dark fall evenings and when I go out of work it is almost completely dark. Awful. I guess it makes me feel depressed. Anyway I managed to capture some beauty in this leaf despite the horrible weather (completely wet). That is why I would like to thank you very much for your nice words. I am glad you liked it. It really took me almost half an hour to get the right shot.

Have a nice day

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your nice words on the "fall colour palette". I am glad you liked it. I guess it captures the essence of the colourful season and that may be the reason for its popularity. Stay tuned.

Hello Paul,

I am glad you discovered my cheerful "smile trigger" and left me such a nice comment. I wonder why didn't it make you smile? It is full of sunlight and seems so light and delicate. I hope it will make you cheerful some day (perhaps when the snow is all around).

Hi Paul,
thnx for your comment on Papaver
Now I know its a popyflower :)

Its not realy a B&W picture, its more Sephia. The purple popyflower seed pod looks better on a Sephia background then on a B&W background and also to try something else ;)

Good question... I believe a good portrait is better as a desktop background then an ordinary flower shot (or what ever). I'm not the best person to ask perhaps since I don't personally use that many backgrounds but the ones I make myself... (What can I say, I like my own style... ^_^) On the other hand I collect thousands of images here as pieces of art I look at from time to time to get inspired of and perhaps one day grow as an artist. :)

I think caedes is not only a site for great desktops but also an "art" and "artist" site. I believe in other words that portraits with artistic merit, definitively your excellent pieces, have a place here. I could say that there are more then a few "snapshot" style images of people here, but I dare say they don't qualify for being considered in this discussion. ;)

Hello Paul, please don't leave...I love looking at your photography, especially the portraits. You give me inspiration where I need it most...mushrooms are easy targets! To catch an expression isn't, and you do that well. Keep it up:-)

Also, thank you for coming to my side and commenting on "White Oysterette". Always appreciated my friend.

Thank you Paul for the comment on "That Autumn Glow". I know what you mean. I don't consider this to be *that* bad rating though. ^_^ I've seen much worse on pieces I liked far better. (Only with c-index below 30 I will be get really displeased...)

I hear you on the DOF issue. I'll see the next time the opportunity comes up for a similar shot. ^_^

Thanks for all your comments on koringkriek! He is about the size of your thumb (4cm - 5cm). They are harmless, but they are known to eat their own kind if there are not enough plants to eat. They are part of the grasshopper family and can be quite a pest as there can be millions of them at one time. The roads get full of them as they come and feast on the ones that got ran over. They can't fly either. No wings like the grasshopper.
