Oooh. I can feel my eyes prickling and the bridge of my nose tightening, and I don't usually get hay fever. ;-)

That is a _gorgeous_ shot.

How did you capture the original? RAW (she said hopefully)
What file size? I know someone you should be working with.

thank you. it's neat that so many people like my photos, and it's really interesting who likes which pictures.

my camera can neither do RAW (i usually shoot low-compression jpg even though it can do tiff, but tiff takes forever to write to memory and makes bracketing impossible), nor does it have enough megapixels for professional work (max 2272x1704).

one of these days i am gonna upgrade to a DSLR. who is it i should be working with once i do that? :)

My friend the colour retoucher (http;www.rgbcmyk.ca), who can help bring out optimal nuances of a shot to best suit it's destination.

oh, she's good. i especially impressed by her moiré noise removal skill.

i like the website design too -- well done! one quibble -- because of the rollover it took me a while to realize that there is more information to be had when one clicks on the thumbnails. that seems counter-intuitive, and it might be a good idea to tell people to click for more. i was rolling over several of the menus thinking "yeah, and so what did she do here? it would help me to see before and after." before i realized that stuff was there.

small bug: in portfolio, color enhancements, the suit thumbnail doesn't give me a rollover image.

but i don't see what i could possibly do for her?

Thank's re the webdesign. This was my third site (the first never made it out of the box, my first draft of my portfolio site was my second) and I like to think my design through carefully.

It's good to get outsider feedback regarding the navigation. We had tested it on a bunch of friends and family, but appparently even they were too familiar with the concept. I'll make sure to include more "cold" volunteers when we do the next version, which will be shifting to a slide show/data base driven format. But first, I have to master building php databases. :)

I'll put the suit thumbnail down for bug follow-up (there's a list on the inside of the site's paper docket). It's been long enough now that I don't remember the reasons for some decisions.

Re what Eileen needs; real world photography that needs a little work to push it to the next level. Not manipulation per se, but when you've got something that's beautiful but in RGB gamut that's will flatten when taken into CMYK gamut for print reproduction (the two colour spaces are a different shape, with about 50-60% overlap) or when it's beautiful, but a little work in the just the right place will turn it into something stunning. Kind of like Ansel Adams in the dark room (and believe me, in addition to being a damned good photographer, he was the master of the dodge and burn).

She does a lot of work that she can't show, as it's proprietary work done on contract. She's looking for food photography, animal shots, clothing, vehicles and landscapes. That's what she needs.

Pleo there was no way I could identify what this pic was about without your helpful text in the end!
my first guess was phosphorescent worm...though the slimmy end had me a little confused...

Have a wonderful weekend! Did paramour returned from Ontario?

Did paramour returned from Ontario?

No, the paramour returns Monday. The paramour also expects that all of that mysterious white crystalline substance which was coating the ground and the vegetation will have been disposed of before he returns.

I just have to say, judging by the next photo, resistance appears to have worked :-).
