I love birds and cats.
Magic Light FeatureWhen an image appeals to me, I like to try and figure out why it does - what's going on in the image to hold my eye and attention.
Sometimes, its magic light. The light has to be there first, but it takes some artistry to capture it. Sometimes, it will be beautiful SOOC - Straight Out Of the Camera. Other times, one needs to spend hours tweaking contrast curves, and maybe layers. That route has the danger of looking 'processed' - the haloes around the edge of over sharpened images, or worse, haloes from lazily selected layer masks!
These have caught my eye. Click through and give the photographers some encouragement. I have generally left a comment as to what I liked. Putting some thoughts into words is a great way to make dA come alive - for us all.
