    I prefer the image with the blurred foreground branches. Those shapes reinforce the shapes/form of the branches/leaves of the tall tree right side as well as the vertical lines of the building. In all the image is dynamic (energetic, lively, vigorous) compared to the second one.
  2. It's not so much a 'bad phone camera' ... more so a lack of understanding of the tricks food photographers use! Have a look here and here Your image (zucchini?) looks unappealing because, in the photo, it looks over cooked—mushy and lacking in colour. The trick here would be to photograph it raw (or very slightly cooked). This way the colour, texture etc would be retained. Spraying the veg and adding steam (how to—pointed out in the links) would create an illusion of a freshly cooked dish. Bon appetit!
  3. Yes, all valid comments. However, this thread is about DAM/Image Viewer(s) that can read Affinity files. Until Serif release a DAM/Image Viewer, XnViewMP is (currently) as far as I'm aware the only 3rd party app that can read Affinity files. IMHO I can't see the relevance mentioning apps that can't read .affinity
  4. Unfortunately Digikam doesn't appear to be able to read .afphoto files (nor PSD). Perhaps there's something in settings I've missed? As far as I'm aware XnViewMP is currently the only 3rd party app that can read .afphoto (and .afdesign). I agree with you 110% regarding darktable (also quite suitable for non RAW as well—tiff, jpeg etc). These recent graffiti images are primarily edited in darktable—RAW, Fuji X-Pro2. (Best viewed on a darkish background)
  5. Once again to the point of ad nauseam ... ! XnViewMP

    Make it a little different...

    @m-b Just had a look at your images via your link. You have a well developed versatile eye! Very nice work
  8. On behalf of @CreativApartheid ... XnViewMP most certainly does! Although admittedly currently both .afphoto and .afdesign can only be viewed at low rez in full screen view ...as per screen shots

    Real easy! All you have to do is copy your finished image, scale down, and place it into the mirror ball ... however, you know that Brilliant work! I'm impressed

    Oh, I really like this! The crown for me, so to speak, would be to have the mirrored ball, also mirrored ... ie showing the mirror within the mirrored ball. Make sense?

    Took a break to play with the $99 camera

    My apology to the OP as my posts have moved beyond the intended
  13. Hello John, Your post may get lost here (?) Presumably there's a truck load of smartphone/tablet users in the forum ... perhaps you should start a new thread on this subject (?) My apology to the OP as my posts have moved beyond the intended
