Not sure what you were hoping for. This is a sweeping landscape, typical of high vantage points in the Smokey’s and Blue Ridge. For some reason, I can’t enlarge the image. The time of day is a bit early so you have a lot of dark. You might not have had a more colorful sky and better light on the ridges. The highlights in the hollers is nice. I…[Read more]
I use Photographer’s Ephemeris to do those same things. Desktop app is free and a small fee for mobile versions. The only thing I haven’t figured out (and I’m pretty sure it does have the information) is the height of the moon/sun. I’m forever getting to places at moonrise and finding it behind a line of trees and having to wait a loong time…[Read more]

You have preserved the movement which I really do like. I see it as left to right rather than right to left, as though she was sitting back then came to…[Read more]
I admire street photographers but don’t often make images of strangers. Here, I was indoors at the Grove Arcade in Asheville, held my camera at waist level and pointed in this person’s direction. Low light gave a slow shutter speed and I also put in a little bit of intentional camera shake. General contrast and clarity adjustments in Post plus a…[Read more]
