The Photo Sets remain....but most of the players have left the field....a few stragglers remain.

Hello Tom, thanks for your comment on 'wild rose' but more over, I am glad you have visited.. If only we still had the 'blogue' where we could express our thoughts, frustrations, and praise the 'good things & people'... this being said, I have to say that I like your series of posts on 'Bodie Island' and the cows... :-) can't wait to see more of your work on this site..

As if the geo-political problems weren't enough, there seem to be some "board" problems on a few sites due to some rules/algorithm changes. I personally don't care what my "score" is but I do think it is rude for folks not to even lift a finger and express some "liking" or make a comment periodically. For my part, I shall vote and make comments. I'm not going to post pics for a while. I don't want my actions to be thought of as a personal plea for "votes". I post my pics. That's all. The End

 Bob Duff said:November 6th, 2012 (2:51am) PST
Tom, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Your so kind. I struggle with the best of them to get an acceptable image. At times, frustration mounts and I wonder why I keep chasing these illusive images. But, seeing what others accomplish and the occasional comments on my work pulls me over the top of the next mountain and we move forward.

Thank you Tom for the compliment for the shot "The Famous 5" I appreciate your time. I walk past this church yard 2 or 3 times a day when walking the dog there is always something different to see even if the inhabitant's don't move about a lot Regards Richard :-)

 Tom Shacochis said:July 16th, 2012 (3:26pm) PDT
You are most kind with your remarks. I'm still learning...every day...and each discovery is welcome...while the inspiration comes from the folks who populate these galleries.
 Rachelle Crockett said:July 16th, 2012 (1:05pm) PDT
You have an amazing gallery of shots and edits here! The talent swells from within you, my friend! You took my breath away with some of these pieces of art! Props be to you! :D

Thanks for your support Tom! Much appreciated! I really enjoyed your interior church shots, excellent work!
 Lorenzo Cassina said:June 10th, 2012 (6:58pm) PDT
Thank you Tom for your recent visit. When I said I was missing yours is because you always have interesting comments to make and very unique. Thanks! Lorenzo
 marthe said:May 24th, 2012 (5:35pm) PDT
Thank you very much for taking the time to view and comment on ' fading memories'. It's greatly appreciated. Marthe
 Lorenzo Cassina said:May 21st, 2012 (8:43pm) PDT
Tom, it's always nice to share, on one side the creation, on the other side the comment. I have expressed my feeling to your great work and now can go to bed feeling happy. Keep shooting and sharing my friend! :)) Lorenzo
 Lorenzo Cassina said:May 21st, 2012 (8:23pm) PDT
Thank you Tom for your kind comments to "Prelude" and other images. Much appreciated! These cluster of clouds you liked were shot today before our daily evening storm. :)) Lorenzo I've been missing your work lately, but I'll catch up soon!
 Lorenzo Cassina said:May 13th, 2012 (7:57pm) PDT
Tom, many thanks for your comments to several of my creations. It's greatly appreciated! Lorenzo
 Michael del Pilar said:May 13th, 2012 (7:54am) PDT
I agree with you....it's a labor of love trying to stay current with everything...Anyway, I wish to thank you for your kind words on the "hotel' and especially the 'rock' pic. An image that evokes memories, especially youthful/childhood ones, are special to me as well. The sights and sounds ( and sometimes even the smells, tastes & tactile experiences) come flooding back. Distant memories suddenly seem "like yesterday" and leaves one wondering "has that much water gone under the bridge?"

Thank you for your comments on "Art Glass Glass".

 Lorenzo Cassina said:May 6th, 2012 (7:57pm) PDT
Hi Tom! No need to worry, we all go by the same thing trying to get to everyone's page and comment back. It's not easy to find more time. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Appreciated! Lorenzo
 Michael D. Friedman said:May 6th, 2012 (7:05pm) PDT
Don't feel badly, Tom. It is very difficult to keep up with shooting, processing, posting and commenting - not to mention all the other responsibilities of living! We have to keep our priorities straight and comment or not and vote or not when we we have the time and not feel any pressure to do so.
 mauro pasquero said:May 6th, 2012 (2:51pm) PDT
Tom, many thanks for your kind message. I comment and I vote when I see a picture I like. It is a good exercize to understand other users work and to learning something new to improve my skills. You have an outstanding gallery and a great experience in processing your new and old images.
 Tom Shacochis said:May 5th, 2012 (3:41pm) PDT
I would like to apologize in view of all the kind remarks of the short coming on my part but I'm still processing about 15 gigs of shots from my two week travels. It is a labor of love....but still a labor and I still have a ways to go. Know that I do appreciate each of you taking the time. I am embarassed by my negligenc in that regard I have scanned the board and there have definitely been some WOW shots posted.
 Lorenzo Cassina said:April 29th, 2012 (6:50pm) PDT
Hello Tom! Thank you very much for all of your great comments to my pictures. Greatly appreciated my friend, and glad the beach shot made you happy. Best! Lorenzo

Though I've been posting some shots, I have not "made the rounds". Know that I appreciate greatly the comments and votes. I will have bit more leisure in the coming days to pause and reflect on your work. Things have been very busy and your courtesy is deeply appreciated.

 Michael del Pilar said:April 6th, 2012 (9:24pm) PDT
Much appreciation, Tom, for your comments on my 'Ferrari' and 'abstract' shot. It is not necessary to comment on each pic. The fact that you stopped by at all is an honor for me and any comment is above & beyond. I hold your work & words in such high regard. Many thanks !
 Michael D. Friedman said:April 6th, 2012 (7:42am) PDT
Thanks, Tom. Glad you like 'Key to Heaven.' I have to say, I thought of you when I was working on it!
 Simon Barker said:April 4th, 2012 (11:33pm) PDT
It cut me off before I could finish! I use galleries such as yours as a motivation and inspiration. Thank you for sharing it. Cheers, Simon.
 Simon Barker said:April 4th, 2012 (11:28pm) PDT
Tom, sorry for taking so long to reply. Your recent comment on my Palouse Falls photo was very much appreciated. That really was such an unreal day. My imagination isn't strong enough to be able to make up what happened that day. I should have known, after jumping on the snake, that things were not going to be good. However, I got the CF card, so it wasn't all bad. I'm so glad that I found your gallery. It is simply stunning and I'm enjoying looking at it I use these types of galleries as a mot.
 Peter Lessey said:April 2nd, 2012 (8:23am) PDT
Thnak you Tom, your comment on "Urban Glow" is much appreciated.
 Leif Rasmussen said:April 1st, 2012 (10:46pm) PDT
About the Pigeon Point Lighthouse image, I originally named this image "Fiscal Crisis" for local camera club compitition. California is abandoning many of it's historic and recreational state parks. The patina of neglect shows in this image.
 Leif Rasmussen said:April 1st, 2012 (10:27pm) PDT
Tom, Thank you for your kind comments on my images.
 Lorenzo Cassina said:April 1st, 2012 (7:48am) PDT

Many thanks, Tom, for taking the time to stop by and visit. Your comments are highly regarded. I've been a big fan from your 500px days...enjoy perusing your outstanding portfolio !
 Tom Shacochis said:March 26th, 2012 (7:46pm) PDT
Jeff, I guess I need to get out more. I don't do airports as I was once confused with the Una Bomber in the San Francisco airport back in the 90s. I don't even think of trying since 9/11. I also see shoes discarded rather than shined but then I don't have to wear a suit in my profession....they even outlawed ties since they carry germs. It's a crazy world.
 Jeff Morley said:March 26th, 2012 (6:46pm) PDT
Tom, Re; shoe polish and shoe shines, there is a good supply of Kiwi polish, brushes, etc in every Target store, and there are numerous shoe shine stands in just about every airport. Phoenix, San Francisco, Denver, Montreal, Newark, LAX, Philly, etc all have a minimun of 4-6 shoe shine stands. No need to be nostalgic about the demise of the art of shined shoes in America!
 mauro pasquero said:March 25th, 2012 (7:25am) PDT
Many thanks for your kind visit and comment, Tom. I usually avoid to have human figures in my architctural shots too. I wait with my camera on a trypod "biblic times" to have an empty space but, from time to time, a single presence gives soma sense of life to this old historical places...

Hi Tom, Thank you greatly for your commemt on my work "Chilled". The use of the Freezer is something that I may not do again, but for this one time did work very well.
 Tom Shacochis said:March 18th, 2012 (7:22pm) PDT
I've been under the weather, as they say. I have turned a corner and I have a lot of catching up to do. I appreciate those of you that have visited my site in my absence.
 Michael D. Friedman said:March 13th, 2012 (8:25pm) PDT
Hey Tom. Thanks for your visit. You should drink lots of hot tea with honey - and a touch of Jack Daniels won't hurt. Speedy recovery!
 Tom Shacochis said:March 13th, 2012 (8:22pm) PDT
I've got a cold that I'm doing battle with right now and may be silent for a few days. I'll be thinking about this site and the shots that I'm missing while I recuperate. Peace.

thank you for your comment, Tom. All your pictures are well balanced and I see that you take care to delevope them the way you feel. I think that makes you a photographer.
  said:March 10th, 2012 (9:26am) PST
Tom I just wanted to express my gratitude for your observation and appreciation. As we enter a new chapter I guess you could call it in the "Away from the crowd mentality", we find ourselves delving into new situations - not of the standard icon-issue image but rather those which move us away from the crowd. I too am guilty but now try to steer into new directions. Thanks again!
 Tom Shacochis said:March 9th, 2012 (7:00pm) PST
Pat...I've never wanted to get that far away from things!! (smile). I seem to be "approachable"....as well as financially challenged. My wife have this agreement that if I buy a "toy"...she gets a "toy" of equal value. I therefore am not an "economic stimulus". (smile)
 pat sampson said:March 9th, 2012 (4:46pm) PST
It's all relative Tom. (smile) I like my 500 but of course what I really want is the $14,000 800mm - nearly as much as the first house Terri and I bought... pat

 Tom Shacochis said:February 27th, 2012 (8:59am) PST
Thank you for your comment, Zvia. The images may reflect my station in life versus you youth and vitality....for I am "aged"....and prone to emotion. :) Seriously, thank you.
 Zvia Shever said:February 27th, 2012 (8:44am) PST
Your images (and the way you develop them) are really serene. They sort of have an aged emotion to them. Different than "normal" (whatever that means) landscapes.
 Paul McConville said:February 26th, 2012 (6:15pm) PST
Hello Tom! Always great to see and read your work.
Going to check this place out but I'll be on the former as well.
Regards, Paul
 Christie King said:February 26th, 2012 (5:58pm) PST
Great to see you here Tom! It's so wonderful seeing so many familiar names/faces.
Cheers!
 Michael D. Friedman said:February 26th, 2012 (5:26pm) PST
Hi Tom. I'm here too now. I agree that 500 is somewhat back to 'normal' but they've never budged on their rating system and, worse, never even acknowledged that the dislike was (is) being misused. The opportunity certainly exists for that here as well - let's hope it doesn't happen.
 Peter Baumgarten said:February 26th, 2012 (2:45pm) PST
Thanks a bunch for your comment on my 6 image. There are many things about this site I like, but their rating system needs some definite work. I still like 500px and have no intention of leaving - especially since the admin there is listening and attempting to correct some of the tragic changes they implemented. I believe they have learned from their mistake.
Cheers,
Peter

Like the bird on the wire and the drunk in the midnight choir.....I have tried in my way to be FREE! I shoot for the pure pleasure of it. I have learned mostly by looking at the work of others and trying to figure out why they chose that composition and later, the processing. There are so many ways to present a shot once you have captured it in the camera. Sometimes it is hard to choose what tells the story best....leave it as shot or reprocess it into something either fanciful or by altering the lighting, create a different mood than it was in "reality". There are discussions about "keeping it real" vs alternative processing. I leave that door wide open and rather than choosing a particular "signature" style, I try to adjust the photo to create a mood for that shot which is most pleasing.....and....sometimes...it works.:)
