Very beautiful. If you find a market (and a public), fine. And if you don't, remember too many artists have been neglected and forgotten. You just keep doing it.

Nice capture, I like it. Greetings from Bavaria, Jim

Kevin Childress on October 1, 2012

hahahaha, Draken, I hear that! Don't worry, pal, I'll always be happy with what I choose to share regardless of other's opinions! :)

Thank you very much, Jim. And I see that you've uploaded some new photos. Where have you been hiding?

Philip Howell on October 1, 2012

Great shot. Excellent.

Kevin Childress on October 1, 2012

Hey, thanks a bunch, Phil. Say, where else are you sharing your photos?

David Brown Photogra… on October 2, 2012

MMMMMmmmmmmm........ sweet - great tones I must say.

What a nice boat too - well balanced indeed (the picture I mean).

Lovely stuff - Jethro

Hi Kevin, Panoramio is my main site.

Due to a young family, work, an old car (1968 Mini) that's always breaking down (hopefully not for long as I just got the engine back after being re-bored for a complete rebuild), house renovations and life in general; I currently have a VERY low photo output :)

When I started posting to Panoramio, in March 2011, I also registered the domain and registered myself as a sole trader with the Australian Tax Office with the intention of setting up a website to sell my photos. It hasn't happened (the website or any sales).

But my intentions were/are to closely follow many of the business ideas of Dan Heller [], but with a focus more towards fine art prints than stock photography. I wanted to set up a website that was optimised for Search Engine discovery of photos. I would also use social media to post the photos far and wide, including Panoramio, to drive people to that site, and that's why I include the website address on the water mark of my photos.

P.S. How do you find RedBubble? I went to school with the founder of that site, although we weren't in the same year.

Beautiful colourtones in this composition. like. Greetings, Monic@

Kevin Childress on October 2, 2012

Thanks a bunch, Jethro. I do love an occasional stroll through the archives, you know.

Phil, I understand exactly, and I wish you the opportunity soon to create some new images! I appreciate the link to Dan Heller ... that is a lot of information! But maybe reading what he writes will help me better focus on a particular discipline in photography. Right now I am trying to become proficient in as many facets of photography as possible (landscapes of course, flash photography, portraiture, macro/close-up, etc, etc). Today I remain an equal-opportunity photographer ... I'll point my camera at just about anything ! Regarding RedBubble: The truth is I haven't updated that content in a very long time. I'm not opposed to the service exactly but the dividends on my first couple of sales is precisely what drove me to from my own website. I've allowed my account at RedBubble to sit dormant ... undecided exactly if I want to develop it or not.

Thank you very much, Monic@!

I like how the light seems to be coming from everywhere. Very nice what you do with misty days, Kevin.

cjlin on October 3, 2012

So beautiful, nice composition. cjlin

Kevin Childress on October 3, 2012

Thank you, kenfowkes. The sun is just out of frame at top/left (you can see a couple of lens flares on the larger structure), and is pretty much shining directly into the lens. I wonder if that's what gives it the impression you have of light coming from everywhere.

Thank you, cjlin, I'm glad that you like it!

I went to St. Joe in the summer of 1998 for a job interview, I remember watching the sunset over the lake at like 10:30pm! You've seem to have captured it better than my memories!

Kevin Childress on October 6, 2012

Hey, Ken. I feel pretty fortunate to be able to travel to Michigan a few times a year (for pure sake of photography). There really is some pretty country up there.

AleksandarMarković on October 15, 2012

Beautiful photo!


JarekH on November 27, 2012

Kevin Childress on December 3, 2012

Thank you very much, Aleksandar!

Hello, JarekH. Thank you very much for all of the great comments on so many of my photos ... all comments are very much appreciated.

Wishing you both a very Merry Christmas!
