The first photo critique for the camera club in 2018 is the theme patterns. We actually had this same theme last January too. See my photos for that post here. These are the three I chose to have critiqued. Now I had a pen in hand to write what Jeff Miller said when about each image but to keep from disturbing others I didn’t turn the little light on my pen and it was pretty hard to make out what I wrote.
There is no shortage of quotes on simplicity, but since this is a post about the theme simplicity for CCoH I’ll only share a few. I can tell you my smoke pictures have been on my try list for a long time and that they was a whole lotta trial and error involved.

CCoH forum theme was for ‘simplicity’ this month. Here are the 3 I submitted. The critiquer this month was Louise St Romain, Bob Hunt.
This is the camera clubs second before and after series this year. The first time I did 3, but one was left out by accident so this year I only took the time to work on 2. original RAW files on the left were by Peter Jones then Warren Bidell RAW, my edit of their photos are on right. I did not shoot either image.
