I'm very anxious to see what prints will make it into the sale. I enjoy seeing his prints when I'm visiting Yosemite (at the Ansel Adams Gallery and the Mountain Room restaurant), and try to keep those impression in my mind the rest of the time. I look forward to finally having one (or two) for myself at home to serve as constant inspiration.

I have seen his prints several times at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite, and other prints of his regularly at the Yosemite Lodge. They are just exquisite. One of my favorite photographers and my favorite photographer working in color. Maybe the latter is because (I think) he was first an outstanding black and white photographer.

By the way - Nice job of ramping up the excitement!

Mike, you are a mean, mean man.

I'm just sayin'.

I'm glad YOU can see them. What a mean tease. :)

Mike said - "P.P.S. We don't reveal the actual sale images until the sale starts."

Um, why? Just curious...

"Um, why? Just curious..."

To give people a reason to want to come see the sale announcement post. If everything in the announcement has already been announced, then there's no reason for an announcement....

Did 'pop' even exist in photo terminology 5 or 10 years back?

I don't much like the implication that a photo needs to 'pop' if it is going to be much praised. I would have thought many a masterpiece too subtle to 'pop'.

Is 'pop' a goal?

Charles Cramer's prints are indeed beautiful. What's almost as striking, at least to me, is how generously he shares the techniques used to create them. Participants in his digital printing course are given a detailed workbook and low rez files of some of his photographs to play with. He shows exactly which adjustment layers he used on particular images, and why. He keeps no secrets about how he does it. Of course, it's a bit like Monet showing you which pigments and brushstrokes he uses. Too bad talent and vision are not as teachable as technique!

I can't say enough about Charlie's course; anyone remotely interested in printing their own work should consider it. My own prints improved dramatically as a result.
