    I really like this composite image! As per my sig I'm a real sucker for pareidolia (you can Google that!). The three flying birds—left, right and to a certain degree the one below the wire are, to me, like ballerinas in flight... The other two in flight are ... well, the male dancers in the ballet The three birds on the wire are beautifully positioned and active (the left counter balancing the other two) ... Stunning image however IMHO the background is too heavy ... yellowish/brown! If this was my image I'd be looking at changing that (luminance?)

    @PAULRFONTENOT I meant no disrespect Paul. Increasingly our planet is becoming more polarised (and hostile)—the growth of nationalism as one example, the current political and religious hostility between India and Pakistan another example. I personally feel both politics and religion have no place in forums such as this ... because of polarising ideologies. Of course that's my view, the mods here decide on what is and what's not acceptable postings

    My apology to @PAULRFONTENOT In this part of the world (Australia and New Zealand) it's the opposite ... the conservative right is blue hence why I thought the post was Trump supportive

    Hmmm, Is this a political endorsement for Trump? If so I protest and hopefully the mods here will shut down any and all any political endorsements for 'any' politics. This forum is about the Affinity apps, not a message board for political leanings ... within the guise of "Look what I've done with the app'

    Logo help

    Hello @Nic727 Is you website up and running? I really would like to see your work! When seen, will determine how to proceed with your signature/logo. @GarryP and others have good advice. Be aware, of course, watermarks are a curse, it won't stop the stealing of your images—We all can buy an image with watermark removed for about $2 (from someone in India and thereabouts!) ... if you upload images then accept you could be ripped off! We all run that risk ... this is the reality of our digital world. However of course—Go for it ... because we all have to get our work out regardless PS Forget about the script signature—no one gives a shit about your name, just the work ... believe me

    Photo - Nature Design

    @Pattou Hello Patrick, If I'm seeing what you define as trolls then 8 in the first image and 19 in the second. I'm also seeing a large number of 'thumb' like pareidolia creatures in both images. Also, in the second image another 5 face type forms—open mouth, hands either side, crown on top

    How is this photo?

    Hello @TomSmith I really like the mood and composition of your image however the eye usually, in the first instance, goes to the brightest part (highlights). In your image there's just nothing in the cloud highlights ... blank! zero! ... histogram right side clipped! Does your raw/original image have detail/density in this area? If so bring it in! ... and make it work

    Colorized photos

    Slightly off topic: Peter Jackson's new project will be using similar restoration techniques as They Shall Not Grow Old

    Daily Design Exercises

    The idea of hiding the W's in the forest comes from Where's Wally? To spice the narative up, so to speak, I flipped the W's 180 degrees so they became M's. That idea, and therefore the title, was influenced by the bizarre humour of Gary Larson

    Fuji .RAF RAW image sliver issue

    Ok, in Windows 10 DSCF1111.RAF craps out in APh as the OP says. The other file is ok. Both files open as expected in both Fuji Raw File Converter Ex. 30 and darktable (current version 2.6.0) ... (one of my cameras is X-Pro2). Houston ... we have a problem! Maybe ... ? I've not had any issues so far with X-trans files so ... ? Edit: Here's how the file looks in XnViewMP. Quite puzzling! Clicking on the thumb reveals the whole image (!)
