Just noticed this so figured I'd give my opinion

I do like the actual photo, but too much grey man, give some better contrast in your black and whites and it would give it life, seems flat and dull with the greys

Definitely skipped over this earlier, but it's way to flat. Composition is good, even with the bunker in the foreground to the right. It looks like you just converted it to gray scale and called it a day.

I did this in about 2 minutes in Photoshop...


Black and Whites need to have contrast, gray bland images just don't cut it.

seriously, i will find a way to pay back every single one of you in some way, shape, or form.




edit- Chris, hurry up and post my my print on your wall! that makes me feel like a million dollars just to know people want my work on display on their wall.
waaah, I'm so confused.. that entire post didn't make any sense to me. and your print on my wall..?
I hope I didn't knock myself out again, I don't know what anyone is talking about.

I really wish I had been posting here more often recently. Damn, feel like I missed a bunch.

Even if I could take pictures here, I wouldn't have been able to post them online. Oh the life. Anywho....

Zach, glad whatever it is helped. Wish I was a part, but shows the spirit of the group for sure.

This. If I could have helped, I most definitely would have. But as we discussed a few days ago we're both in quite the hole. But good to hear you've got a roof!

Good to hear that there are still people out there willing to help

anyone have any good tips for multi drop collisions when doing water drops? I haven't had the best of luck, and can't afford to drop a few hundred on a timer system. Had some drops I've been pleased with, just no collisions...

Thats actually stuff I'll be shooting for an elective class, in a sense. High Speed Stop Action photography for Advertising (Bottle drops, drips, etc).

In Other News, working on getting more of my work back online, finally have time off from school to do so. Also, got my prints from WHCC. Pumped on them, Test target looks great. If I wasn't printing my own stuff on papers and metals I like, I'd use em.

I don't know why, but I love the fact that there's lights on the passenger floor and by the pedals. Those come from factory or what

It's an option.. It includes a bowl of rice and a three foot high spoiler. Lol
No, it's actually factory. They're rather nice when you're getting into your car at night. It makes it easy to see everything.

I'm ticked that I cut off my elbow.
