Hey Darren - your images are always excellent and this one is particularly wonderful. You obviously get to see things from your vantage point that most of use can only dream about. Well done sir.

Digital limited edition art for screen display only: discuss!

After reading the article, my first thought was to give "s[edition]" credit for finding an interesting method of marketing computer wallpaper sales. For me, there were also a few questions that I've not yet resolved.

Does the display of imagery on a computer monitor or flatscreen TV constitute art? I'm guessing that part of the answer has much to do with the image and image maker/artist.

Is the traditional method of displaying framed art/photography becoming obsolete? I hope not. I'm of the vintage that loves to hold photographs. I also enjoy admiring fine art (paintings, prints, photographs) that are displayed in homes, offices, museums, etc. I'm not sure how much I'd enjoy looking at monitors/displays hung on walls compared to the "real thing".

Is this a new wave of opportunities for the struggling artist to have his/her work sold/seen? Might be. Considering that most businesses, including galleries and museums, are having to work with more restricted budgets these days, this may offer them and new artists a venue to join forces in a way that does not break the budget.

Is this a way for the "masses" to bring more art/photography into their homes, businesses, and lives without spending a fortune on original work and the associated display costs and space required? Again, could be. I might not be able to afford an original limited edition print of Wender's "Lounge Painting 1", but I probably could afford $21 to have a digital copy displayed on my computer.

Again I say; interesting. BTW, I've been in the Gila Bend hotel where Wender captured "Lounge Painting 1". To his credit, I never considered photographing such a scene. That being said, I like his image very much - but I'd prefer a large print to a digital copy

Sir Steve - What a terrific photograph. I've always liked the art deco style of commercial buildings that seemed to be popular in the 1930's and 1940's. Your image does the theatre proud and shows how you hit the ground running with digital equipment. You and the 5D appear to have been a formidable team

Like most anyone wielding a camera, I really enjoy early and late light. Especially if you have something interesting to bounce those special tones off of. This rotund AA 767-200 serves as a nice reflector of subtle warm light as the sun slowly disappears behind the nearby pacific horizon.

Good morning, everyone!

I've missed you all quite a bit, and I'm now almost 100 pages back in my reading. It's either say a ton or say nothing at all, and -- uncharacteristically perhaps -- I'm going to go with the latter. Suffice it to say that we're all healthy and happy, and that everything is going beautifully. Busy enough to preempt my MATA time is busy indeed.

Merry Christmas to all, and Happy New Year as well! I pray that you all are doing even better than you could have possibly hoped, and that the Year of Our Lord 2014 brings you even more blessings than those you so richly deserve.

I'll be back soon... I hope!

Thinking of you this morning Rodolfo. All the best right back at you and yours. Just drop in and say nothing if you're pressed, but drop in. We'll be here.

Jeff, Thanks for posting “AMERICAN SUNSET”. I find it an interesting – and very beautiful – continuation of our discussion re the nature of light. I'm much taken with the transition from late day warm orange at the top to cool blue hour at the bottom. Keeping the overall balance is a very neat trick – helps to show off the different shades of “grey” on the engine cowling. Nice job.
I have to say that the biggest thing I've learnt this last year or so is how little I know about light. I've read and studied like crazy (well, by my standards) but I still have so much to learn..... and so it goes.

Thanks for the kind words Nick. This was a challenging scene for me precisely because of the mix of warm and cool tones that existed. It was definitely a tricky balancing act in post processing. I don't anticipate mastering these transitional times any time soon; however, it is a hoot experimenting and learning a little more each time I have the opportunity to photograph in these conditions.

Apparently I'm not going to Yellowstone this year!! I thought it was agreed but when the domestic authorities actually UNDERSTOOD (as distinct from being told countless times) that including stopover in Dallas Ft Worth it was 17 hours each way she vetoed it until she has retired (when we can go for 3-4 weeks) which isn't until 2015. Instead I'm going to suggest she might like to visit this place!
