    Re: The Artist's Pride

    Another great shot Tuna, I have been looking at this for a while, I love the sharpness of the overall image, the texture of the background canvas and the way that the little man is holding the painting at an angle, it is all crystal clear! The only thing I am not sure about is whether or not the artist looks particularly proud in this photograph as the name would suggest.

    Great image and thanks for sharing

    Very good , Tuna. I wish i could comment further but there is nothing to say, other than nice work. The tones and sharpness are strong points here as well

    Very nicely captured shot and I think the contrast really works here. I like how the painting sorta plays on the grass the kid is standing on also, IMO that ties it together very well.

    Hi Tuna,
    I especially like the use of lines in this shot. The tent's lines, the picture's curves, and even the creases are so coherent. Another great shot!

    Well, tuna, have tried to come up with something to say that has not already been said. Just can't do it. Another wonderful image; contrast, lighting, composition all spot on.

    You are, in my book, the king of b/w.

    If only we could all be so dispassionate about showing our work from time to time. Nice work Tuna.

    Two canvasses if you like.
    The moment I saw this I thought I was looking at too much of the background canvas but then I noticed the opening in the white canvas and I said J****s. That little fella completed his work behind the white canvas and popped out to show those in waiting his finished work of art. He could be saying "well here it is and I've done this for you. I hope you like it"

    Can't See The Photo

    I can only see a red x. Looks like PhotoBucket is down. You guys should all use the photo upload in the forums. Then there won't be any problems with remote hosting.

    I would, but now the photo-uploading is down. You just can't win. JK, PJ.

    Great work, Tuna. I love the composition of the photo.
