    Nicely done (as usual)!

    What lens were you using on that Nikon?

    Thank you. I did take photography in art college. OCAD.
    Kit lens. Supposedly a limited edition.

    What makes for a good scene to the naked eye isn't necessarily what makes a good photograph.

    What makes for a good photograph isn't necessarily the stuff of a good painting.

    dammit

    I tend to shoot what I think will make a good painting or I just think is interesting. The possibly good photographs get lost in the mix.

    Of the photos you take (I assume some are clinkers), you take some great shots. I'm jealous.

    I do have to say it's hard to take a bad shot with this new camera.

    I can tell when a painting is taken from a photo. I used to sometimes paint from photos and all my instructors would say, "You painted this from a photo."
    The art that was shown at the Rally, I felt was all drawn from photos. It kind of takes away from painting/drawing because it's like a copy of a photo and not an interpretation of the scene through the artist's eyes.

    It very much depends on how the artist uses the photos. Most works that used photos as source materials do look like the final image was just a photo run through a clumsy photo filter. It is, however, possible to use them as a starting point to something 'better'. The eye, as you suggest, sees and interprets very differently than the lens and sensor/film. You can often see that difference when the photo gets regurgitated as a painting.

    OTOH, you may have seen the painting of mine that Kbasa. It was started from some photos (sorta). I don't think anyone would mistake it as a regurgitation.

    Yes, I am amazing.
