Nice image. But what's even worse, here's somebody that's got SEP2 working.
I just had another exchange on the Nik forums yesterday bemoaning the fact that, for those of us whom it doesn't work, we don't seem to be getting any more information about whether something's been done to make it work or whether we just put it in the bin.
The interesting answer seems to be that they (Nik) have to work with every customer on a case-by-case basis to try and solve the individual problems. If so many people are having the same problem; i.e. it seizes at the 'Loading' or 'Precalculating' when trying to open, does this not suggest some generic problem rather than one that is unique to each customer?
ps - Sorry, Raylee, for using your image as a platform for this rant. It's just getting so frustrating.
A very nice image for the conversion Raylee and sorry to hear yours is still not working Donald, whoever said digital photography was 'free' didn't count the hours we spend on the whole computing side of it, I have had many a rant over external storage devices not reading etc... But back to the image, the only tiny concern I had was on the left, I find myself looking for a tiny few more pixels on the outside of the clasp of the beautiful box that the spoons are stored in...
But a lovely subject and promotes the viewer to think - who do they belong to? Are they a precious heirloom etc, well I'm quite happy with these thoughts and wonderings anyway
Nice use of the selenium toner. Very appropriate with the silver. I might have centered the box in the frame, but that might be too nitpicky, even for me. Nice to see you back.
this is "Nice" and "Simple" and it works...
thanks for sharing / paul
Thanks Chris - I like the selenium too.
Thanks Paul. I like simple images.
I love this but have been interrupted every time I've tried to tell you - sorry! Now, I just had those old mysteries on my mind (you know - they're there often) and, when I saw this, it was a sweet little thrill because it took me right "back" to some sort of era with some sort of sweet Miss Marple who would know all about these. It's perfect for that thought between the subject and the "heaviesh" coloring you've given it. I LOVE it, you know! Just my kind of image!
I was going to say that, maybe, it isn't quite straight but I think that's charming if it is askew.
Actually, Kay said it perfectly...
exactly my experience!But a lovely subject and promotes the viewer to think - who do they belong to? Are they a precious heirloom etc, well I'm quite happy with these thoughts and wonderings anyway
Then, if you can believe it, Tom came downstairs, just as I was first going to respond, with an article in "Biblical Archaeological Review" about some ivory pieces that he'd seen before and admired in the Boston Museum. It turns out that Agatha Christie, herself, polished them with some face cream and her hairpin. Funny coincidence - it was in the air.
Thanks Katy. I've been lurking lately but not contributing.
I love the golden age of crime too, as well as modern mysteries.
Hope you are well.
Also, I'll bet you know what I meant about being "heavy-ish" in color - meaning.... not high key.
