[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This whimsy builds on the graphic of the photographer standing behind his tripod. The camera lens moves to the back cover, this time without the text. I focused more on landscapes on the front cover and people on the back cover.

I continue to avoid the colors used in the TE logo. I believe the bright red, white and black offer a much more striking presentation. I sense I have one more cover in me, but I'll probably take a bit of a break before posting it. Enjoy this one in the meantime. The more I work in Photoshop CS2 the more I appreciate what an excellent tool it is for graphic design. I'm still an amateur, but I'm quite pleased with the results achieved. Of course, I'm using all these gorgeous photos taken by TE members...

Wow, another one! You are very prolific Curtis. This too is pretty and the format is good. My comments: Even though in small scale the TE logo can go in place of "TE productions". Too many style fonts weaken a presentation. It does not give it the required impact. This input will help a lot as to whoever will design the cover.

I have not been sending "Thank You Responses" as I have been warned twice already not to do it. It is unfortunate as it is part of being civilized and good etiqutte to say "Thanks" to somebody who gives you a compliment.


This is even more structured then last, and the catching colored borders shows it clear, this circle within around the lens, getting better all the time.

Wondering still a few reactions, photographers do have a creative mind ?
