Other Peoples' Art OPA

+Ricardo Liberato and everyone

Ricardo deleted the Bag Lady as OPA. This discussion is more important to me than the votes on the image.

Serious question: If you make a photo of a whole building carefully cropped or even cloned onto a blank canvass is that OPA?

If you do a study of a portion of the building is that OPA?

This Bag Lady is tiny portion that caught my eye of a very large billboard; why is this capture any different than a study of a window or a door? The window/door was created by someone else and you are simply taking a picture of their creation. 

In the attached photo, the Bag Lady was "processed", the middle piece of a building is the RAW, and the second is a cropped and BW final image.

If I posted the BW image +Ricardo Liberato would you also delete as OPA?

Aren't they all OPA; one by a graphic artist and one by an architect?

Thanks in advance for your participation.

This wouldn't have worked in this case - but I agree with Ricardo - 2D needs "something else" to make it yours.  Either a person walking in front that contrasts or mirrors the image.  Maybe a bird landing in the bag.  Something to make it more.  With the 3D-ness of a building you're adding you're unique angle and perspective.  That changes as you move around, where a billboard won't.  Still having that perfect moment of a person, animal, light etc makes it even better.

Now that Lightroom has, what appears to be an excellent HDR feature is this going to convert the puritans like me to use it?
I will be honest, it certainly looks like it has come along way and improved considerably since I last toyed with HDR 5/6 years ago.

I think the new HDR is probably going to replace, for me, Photomatix and Nik. It is great.

As an aside I am trying to do almost 100% of my processing using Lightroom and the Macphun apps. Noiseless, Intensity, and Tonality are amazing and quick.

+Kent Forrest referenced my macro tool kit in another post; this is what I wrote regarding +Teresa Madgwick image:

"Also, when doing macro do you carry a macro kit - seriously - I carry a small tweezers, scissor, forceps (used to be used for something else), brush, and spray bottle. If on a tripod I would have used a tool to remove offending green piece in the upper right corner. "

I am putting it here - I am not an Educational Resource (just another photographer) - to open a macro discussion and a cleaning the scene discussion if anyone wants to participate.

+Brady Simmons​ since it seems you've finally returned to the islands from forever in Asia, maybe we can get together for a pau hana and some pupus on my next trip. I'm currently looking at week of May 4th.

I'm on Oahu 4 to 6 times a year.

Okay, Adobe Bridge CC 2014.  I get it... But, maybe not all the way.  I don't use Bridge, nor have I.  I just wondered what compelling arguments there are for using Bridge when Lightroom seems just a way more advanced method of accomplishing many of the same tasks -- tasks I need, only being included here.  I know there are 100's of reasons TO USE IT, and long and short, that's what I'm asking you to tell me. 

So, again, if you know some reason for me to be using Bridge, please tell me!

+Elizabeth Hahn is right it's the same just different UI. I like lightroom better too. Bridge came first some photographers still use it becase they like the work flow, if you work on discrete assignments and share files on a network I think it would work better (two people could be in a folder at the same time). Bridge can be used on many different types of graphic files and has some scripting. I used it a pot when I was forced to use xp and needed to preview and search for images on a network.

+Zarafasia Equinox it's about Paneurhythmy - something like a teaching about merging with the vibrations of the nature... I am not very familiar with it but it is something people do in Rila mountain here in Bulgaria. It was "invented" by Peter Dounov - a spiritual master and founder of a School of Esoteric Christianity called "School of the Universal White Brotherhood". Here's a link if you are interested in learning more about it: http://www.beinsa-douno.com/paneurhythmy-concept-of-the-master-beinsa-douno-peter-deunov.html
PS I am not a part of that nor am I trying to promote it :D

I just bought my first prime ever! Olympus 25mm f/1.8 which is equivalent to 50mm at 35mm. Looking forward to playing with this fast lens and my new grandsons.

Since the 1980s, Jeff Bridges has been taking set shots and behind-the-scene photos from all his films with his unique panoramic Widelux camera. His consistency is amazing. 'The Big Lebowski' (1998) The Stranger and The Dude (aka Sam Elliot and Jeff Bridges) at the 'Lebowski' bar. --- 'True Grit' (2010) Jeff takes a selfie with a lynching vitctim. --- 'Crazy Heart' (2009) Jeff Bridges catches Maggie Gyllenhaal relaxing. --- 'Blown Away' (1994)...

Was watching a great photo seminar on Youtube and thought others might enjoy it too as it is especially good and quite inspriring.

Enough of this gushing. You'll just have to see for yourselves (or not ;-))

I faintly remember there being a webpage (outside Google+) where all the images in "The Lightbox" were uploaded. Does that still exist? Can you point me to it? 
I poked around the rules and FAQs and could not find it (maybe I just missed it. If so, apologies)

I love Google but this is one thing that really irks me. Why can't it be streamline? Why so convoluted and duplicated and disconnected?
