Larger Images

I received feedback from a blog visitor about the size of my image posts. Basically, the request was that I post the images in the large size instead of the medium because it is easier for the viewer to view. No worries there! From hence forth, I'll go the large route. Thanks, Hoag3248!

This weekend I had a sick member of the family, so I wasn't able to get out as much as I wanted to do some photography. However, every-so-often I would be sent on an errand to get medicine or some sort of food that was softer on that family member's stomach, so I would always grab my camera and snap what I could along the way. This photograph and the one below are taken from the old Georgia Pacific Mill that is now being demolished to make way for a big marina development plan that includes high-end condos, shops, and all sorts of goodies that no one can afford but is going to be built anyway.

A Bit Frustrating...

As I said in my Evil Pixie blog, I'm a bit frustrated. It seems someone from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Brunswick, Canada has downloaded images from this blog. I was hoping to avoid watermarking the photographs to maintain some amount of protection; however, it looks like I am going to have to go back to doing just that. It's unfortunate because I've always thought watermarking - while prudent - always ruins the clarity of an image. The watermark always competes with the image. I have been only uploading smaller, lower quality images as another way to deter those who would right-click, save-as but I guess it doesn't work. So just a reminder to all of you out there...

Depth of Field

It is amazing what depth-of-field will do for a photograph. The above photograph's background is not sharp but it is still clear enough to determine what is there. In my opinion, the photograph appears cluttered - though it background does add some vibrant colors.

This photograph, however, is stronger and even has a more artistic flare. The focus is solely on the yellow daisy and the depth of field is more muted. It doesn't compete against the subject. Thoughts?
