Fantastic work. Very creative. Warm Congratulations!
Phillip 01-Oct-2008 23:28
I've followed your photos through the web and after viewing your own site I found these galleries here. Amazing work, Jude. I can't imagine having a mind and soul that coule enable a person to create these images. Emotion is in every single photo, and it's not that easy to do in one, let alone whole galleries full.

Jamie Stelmaszek 09-Sep-2008 04:01
Wow I have not seen your work in a wile it looks better and better every time. Sorry I could not make your opening it must have been a smash!I will get you tickets to see our show in Sy Ignace on the 1st of Nov. MMA full contact fights, lots of photo ops for you! Jamie

just saw your image on the pbase home page today. Now will spend some time looking at your other images. I'm blown away by your talent and sight.
Guest 16-Dec-2007 05:23
At the risk of being too dramatic, your galleries, along with niall o'shea's, are my favorite collections here. I look at them and feel much the same as watching Tiger Woods play. I understand the rules, and even study up on the techniques,
but you guys are playing a different game. Maybe with time I'll learn to play as well.
Thank you for the inspiration.

Dear Jude ......
I'm not often left speachless, but its happened now.
You have crafted galleries of such exquisite and sublime genius.
The PBase community and art lovers around the world are fortunate to have your superb labours of love so easily accessible.
You have inspired me to take my photography more seriously:
To excavate hidden philosophic, psychologic, artistic, poetic and spiritual potentialities in photography and life.
Hey Jude ...... you haven't let me down!
Thank you for all the inspiration;
for shining your beautiful and healing light
into our darker corners.
May you continue to do so.
And may you attain great happiness and fulfilment.
I would value your comments and advice on my galleries.
Raymond ...

thank you so much for the super sweet comments you left for me.. put a big smile on my face :-) i've only had a chance to briefly look through your galleries and i love your stuff! really cool and wide range of work and a great sometimes 'off center' way of looking at the world which reminds me of.. well.. me! ihih as well as the fact that you're a fellow red head which is always nice to see! we're grossly outnumbered and need to stick together :-))

Hey Jude (no pun intended),

Thanks for the groovy messages you've left over the past few months, I am (sadly) often short of the time, and I would dearly like to view the work of people that are kind enough to leave critique or encouragement for me. And I am always impressed when I see your work, because it bustles with energy, insight and intrigue. I was surprised to hear your comments about me being technical, it made me chuckle, as I normally feel I don’t understand it all. Perhaps why I make such an effort to get my head around it. But I get most of it from books and websites, and the rest is down to experimentation, you wouldn’t believe all the (hundreds) of failed images that get deleted. If you wanna swap sources of books etc let me know I could recommend some great easy to use books, and be interested to know any you use.

Warm regards,

Guest 22-Apr-2005 14:50
wow what a great collection, Ive got to come back when i have more time

some really great works here

You truly are an artist - spent quite a while browsing your galleries - so creative. Helps to make me think "outside of the box". Thanks for making a comment on the ol' shed PaD pic - probably agree with you on the vignetting, but was experimenting... :) And it provided some room to put a title in the pic. LOL Will put you on my favorites list - you have too many interesting things to see!

Jim Fitzpatrick14-Mar-2005 13:38
Thanks for stopping by my PAD and for the nice comments. Trying to find my voice now - getting there. Love your work - you've been on my favs list for a while now.
Jean Ray07-Mar-2005 03:54
Just looked at your PAD and PAD runnerups galleries. Very nice work. There is a very moody, emotionally evocative quality to it. I'll be back when I have more time. Take a look at mine if you have a chance.
Subrata Basu01-Mar-2005 05:00
Jude: I really appreciate your comments on some of the images. Thanks and hope to stay in touch.

I really like your photos Jude! I allways enjoy looking thru your galleries. /Johan
Dominic Kite23-Feb-2005 20:21
Jude, it's a testament to the high regard I hold you in, when I find myself wondering if you were faced with the same thing, how you'd take the photo. Generally the answer is better than I can, but that's what keeps me coming back here day after day. You're an incredible talent, and it means a lot to me whenever I see your comments.

And Niall's not alone.

I just wish I could put words together to comment on yours more often but they're all so damn incredible I feel redundant when I try to comment on your stuff LOL. You have an amazing eye and your work is full of passion. I just wanted to let you know that.
Guest 08-Feb-2005 22:30
Always an inspiration - your pictures, the captions and such perceptive comments literally whereever I look. But most of all the irreverant fun.

Marcus Rugger10-Dec-2004 20:43
Hi Jude, you left a message on my PaD asking about ISO 3200 on the Rebel. The Rebel has some of the capabilities of the 10D built into it but Canon has left them disabled. ISO 3200 is one of those things. There's a hacked version of the firmware you can download off the 'net, if you're so inclined, that enables some of those disabled features.

You have a beautiful gallery here. I'm going to go peruse it for awhile.
Guest 10-Dec-2004 17:40
THanks so much for your kind comments about the pictures I leave here ..I have been enjoying all the galleries for the most part and having a kinda sensory Overload. Im new at this , bought all the recommended how too books , but finding that wandering through Pbase is the best teacher ...Thanks and God Bless Kenn !
Martin 10-Dec-2004 15:32

Guest 04-Oct-2004 14:54
Hey Jude, thanks for visiting my galleries and leaving a heartfelt comment. I especially value comments from those whose work is so strong. there is a lovely sensuality running throughout your galleries, I love the blurry, dreamy portraits and self-portraits. Your self portraits are particullarly inspiring as they reveal many facets of your character, strength, humour, kindness, playfullness as well as sensuality. Also love your scenic work, the silos etc. Well done and thank you
Maggie (Bent) 04-Oct-2004 00:30
my simple words could never do justice for what you have done here Jude....I know now without a doubt I will be able to say "I knew her when....." (I won't fill in the blanks i think we both know why HAHAAAAAAA) Your photos were a great end to a mediocre day!

anna 29-Sep-2004 16:29
Hey Jude,

I'm addictited to Pbase !
I don't know what I like best, your pictures or your comments !!!
you're one hell of a Lady !
One of these days I'll get the courage to start taking pictures again. who knows :)

Gabriele Hasslacher27-Sep-2004 21:20
yes, it's a nice thing. but I very seldom take the time to rearrange it.
it's my winter garden too, no flowers, no green and not so much to do than in the other one :-)
but maybe for the pad gallery I will be more active in the zen garden - when it is to cold and not friendly enough to go out to take pictures.
JD Anderson26-Sep-2004 19:10
Hello Jude!
Here is the method I used on my Sept 25 photo that you asked about... I like to play with BW conversions to see what I can come up with. I did one for Sept 26, but I don't like it much. It makes Ethan look like a ghost!! LOL Take care,

OK, I reduced the yellow and red saturation, then converted to BW using calculations, set to Gray, Blue, Screen 60%. I then did a levels adjustment to get max dynamic range without blowing the highlights. I did a little dodging and burning overall. I then hit SHIFT-ALT-CNTRL-TILDE to select the light areas of the image. I inverted the selection and filled in a new layer with a medium orange-brown. I did a gaussian blur on this layer, and changed the blending mode to multiply and reduced capacity to about 60%. I went back to the base layer and did SHIFT-ALT-CNTRL-TILDE to select light areas again. I filled it on a new layer with an almost white pink color. I did a heavy gaussian blur, changed the blending mode to softlight and set opacity to about 30%. I copied the eyes from the base layer and put them on top. I did a series of levels adjustments and sharpening to get them to look as they do. I just make this stuff up as I go and see how it comes out. I like this one...
Pedro Libório23-Sep-2004 22:33
I had to come here to say that I absolutly love your galleries, and without doubt you are one of my favorite photographers here!!!
bik kiss to you Jude!
Guest 21-Sep-2004 03:56
Youre pics are great. You have so much different pictures in there. I can see why everyone looks at them.
Robbie 12-Sep-2004 00:16
Hello from the UK . Have spent the evening scouring the p base site for a change . Found
your pictures very interesting ,enjoyable and enlightening . Will have to re visit your
gallery again soon . It shows you enjoy photography to the full and your comments had me laughing . Better get some of my pics on display asap . Thanks and keep snapping.
Guest 06-Sep-2004 19:11
Thanks very much for your comments. My english is not very good. I like very much your galerie "song images".
Guest 05-Sep-2004 06:00

Thank you very much for your comment. I enjoyed your galleries as well, especially "newer scenics". I hope I'll be able to take pictures like that some day!
Guest 03-Sep-2004 23:16
Thanks very much for your comment on my self-portrait image in my gallery. Its usually very easy to reply with appreciation and to return compliments but I must say in your case I honestly don't know where to start!?! Your composition, lighting, choice of subject matter.... ALL fantastic and excellent! Is it Jude? or Annie?
I also sometimes will point out a favorite of yours that I like. I didn't think I would find one... BUT,... your "Still Dreaming" image caught my eye. Did you consciously arrive at that composition / angle? or was it by accident? I can't explain but I was captivated by that image. I would like to know only because if it was by accident then I should apologize for complimenting a photo that was most likely fast and easy!? Not to say that the rest of your work looks like it was painstaking and tremendous setting up! One might be inclined to say that about your work because it is SO good...
Take Care,
Guest 28-Aug-2004 13:04
Thank you for stopping by my gallery and leaving comments. I appreciate you taking the time to do so.

To be fair, I've taken the time to look through your galleries. I'm drawn to architectural images, and your gallery lines_abstract_and_modern certainly caught my eye. You have wonderful images on your site.

sounds painful! We are here for the long haul!
Guest 24-Aug-2004 12:49
Hi Jude, Im new to PBase and photography and I just have to say that your work is a HUGE insperation to me. Every one of your pictures invoked sometype of reaction or emotion and to me, thats what its all about. I love your style and hope to someday be half as good as you are! Thank you for posting your pictures and allowing me the opportunity to view them.
Guest 23-Aug-2004 13:36
Hello Jude,

Your portrait work is outstanding, not that your other work is not of high quality, but it is your portrait that really caught my eye.

Guest 21-Aug-2004 00:55
Hi Jude MC, I just want to thank you for commenting on my pictures. I just got a chance to look at your gallery and it blew me away! What an inspiration!!! You are very artistic!

Hi! My husband and I spoke to you on 8-1-04 while you were shooting the sunset on Lake Superior at the lighthouse in Brimley. We saw the picture entitled "Reflections" - thanks for posting it. We were wondering if you had any more shots we could look at - hopefully the shot where the sun was peeking through the cloud just as it was about to set. Am enjoying browsing at your pictures on your web page. Keep up the good work. Thanks again for sharing. Denise Bishop

Guest 03-May-2004 15:15
You are right. I took a series of photos at this abandoned barn, it had a similar ambience as your "Haunted House" photos. By the way I very much like "Death and Life", you captured in one single images how these old places are, desolation and continuation ...
Guest 03-May-2004 02:42
jude, i just came across a comment in someone's guestbook in which you claim that you have only been doing this for a year and a half, and didn't know what an f-stop was. i REFUSE to believe that ;) i think your work is fantastic, if this is just your 'beginner' stage, i envy you for sure! :) its always a pleasure to stop by your work.

Dear Jude,
Thank you for your kind and heartfelt comments on my recent postings. The time you dedicated reviewing my work will go a long way towards motivating and inspiring me to work harder. For any photographer, capturing a special moment has it's own reward but the image is always better when shared and appreciated by others.
