On Stressatwork in the -Stressed@Work- (BW+Border) challenge (2 comments in total)

It's a lovely shot, but doesn't have anyone at work or stressed in it. Otherwise my favourite of all the entries here. Could well be the winner of a different challenge though.

A wonderful capture and a touching story. Thank you for entering it.

In my humble opinion this should have been the top shot by a mile. How it managed to gather 4 x 0.5 votes is beyond me.

You've found a charming little corner of the capital. Where exactly is it?

In reply to:

chrisby: Very nice, had been my 5 star favorite. Perfect implementation of the theme; great look due to colors and vignetting.

Thank you Chris. Maybe I'll get round to reading them some day :)

In reply to:

cjf2: I really like the lighting any processing of this. Should have done better.

Thanks very much. I, of course, agree with you 100% ;)

In reply to:

santamonica812: I really like the composition. The grossly overdone vignetting ruins the image for me, however. (And, the editorial decision to darken 3 of the corners but not the fourth seems quite unusual to me, and is visually very jarring and off-putting.)

Yes, I'm afraid this wasn't the best idea I've ever had. Fortunately I still have the original and have re-processed it. Thanks for the very fair comment.

On Rest in the -Manual Labour- (Full Colours Only +Border+Title) challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Adrian,
Nice of you to comment. Yes, if I remember rightly that shot was a very quick affair. The situation changed very fast, almost as I shot it. I normally zone focus when walking around for that very reason.

Best regards
Mike

On Yellow abstract in the What Is This? – II. challenge (8 comments in total)

Thanks for the interesting ideas. But RaptorUK was spot on. It is a twisted pyramid shaped sculpture, made from metal rectangles of diminishing size.

chrisby: Great image and very touching interpretation! I like idea, composition, colors , title...everything. My favorite and a clear 5 star vote. Congratulation to this work!

Thanks Chris. I shoot a lot in cemeteries and found this one of the most, as you rightly say, touching memorial sculptures I have come across.

l_objectif: What a fantastic shot, I love it. Well deserved first place!

Sorry Louis. I've only just spotted your comment.
Thank you very much. They are the typical British couple doggedly enjoying their freezing cold visit to the seaside, come what may :)

Thanks Mustafa.
It's a nice little instrument to look at, but unfortunately I still can't play it.

Best wishes
