Photographers and Artists

My New Home?

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

[sort of off topic]

I know nothing about photographic technicalities but love both the photos Alan.

I may live to regret it, but somehow the thought of being poor in Dahlonega seems nicer than being wealthy in Malibu

That sounds like it's coming from your soul. With such beautiful scenery, there's really no competition is there? Your new home? If it's calling to you, you should go. I know I'd chose Dahlonega over Malibu anyday. :D Just a thought! :D

Great stuff! Go for it, Alan. Something tells me you won't regret it. Best of luck and a very happy new year to you too. Hope it'll be a great one! :D

Late to the party again... :roll:

I prefer the first one. I think there's more "chemistry" between the horses and they definately contribute to the overall compositional balance with all the other elements. The water is also much more dynamic... The branches reaching out into the scene create a tension offset by the pastoral setting... The second one is too dominated by sky.

And again, Alan shows us how it's done... Bravo!
