Tony - I could feel the power of the Storm Surge! Perfect timing on this shot with maximum impact! Nice!
Siggi - these are cute! Now is this a Roo or a Wallaby? You Aussies have so many marsupials - I can't keep up. I just see them on TV and say "That's a Hopper".
Tone - that's quite a unique setting. A Western Club with Canadian Cowboys - and British flavored Public House - a Pub w/ Hee Haw Entertainment!
I need a glass of Ale - and I need to lie down!
Nice street shot!
Beautifully captured Human Interaction, Deepak! Excellent - expressions and all!
Superb clarity and tonal range a la Film Noir! C'est Photographie Artistique! Beautiful!
Pierre - excellent Panoramic! You've got the exposure spot on and matched very well throughout the frames. Nice!
I've tried the in camera pano and I keep getting vertical lines - arggggh!
Nice capture, Eduardo! Now what is the odds of finding a black and a white water bird posing together? Good catch!
Stuart - this is a gorgeous image! The clouds above, the foreground Windmill and all those houses lined up off in the distance! Is this on the continent? Beautiful shot!
You get a lot of practice at articulating thoughtful comments about all the photos, of whatever merit, folks post in your thread. It must be equally useful as shooting photos of your own. Well done! And thanks for taking over this weekly thread, for however long you're willing to keep it up..
Lovely image, Mark.. beautiful capture of old architecture, the feel of past days is boosted by the tree in the square and pub (in proper old days manner)named "Under (horse)chestnut" .. really like the play of light on the walls.. well spotted and expertly processed, thank you for sharing ..
All the best,
Thank you all, guys appreciate your kind opinions and suggestions ..
Thanks for looking, cheers,
Thanks Rick. This is Lytham Windmill, about 1.5 miles from my front door. The windmill is a landmark and sits on a wonderful stretch of grass edged promenade that runs for about 3/4 mile. We're on the NW coast of the UK. If you're a golfer it is the home of the Royal Lytham St Annes golf course where, every 10 years or so, the Open Golf Championship is hosted.

Very mysterious, to my liking also inspiring image, Trent .. seeing these fine instruments one feels as making some music, LOL .. lovely composition and fine detail.. well captured and processed, thank you for sharing ..
All the best,
Beautifully documented power of North sea(?), Tony.. for a moment I thought it would be nice to see this "explosion" in colors, but than I realized it would be probably all B&W tones on a gay stormy day as this one .. well done, thank you for sharing..
Indeed a cute series, Siggi.. really like the expression on the face of the first guy - I can see pure curiosity and interest.. did (s)he follow you afterwards? (LOL, just kidding!) ..excellent work, thank you for sharing - slightly belated - Happy Easter to you as well ..
Fine image, Tone.. well captured the sad looking "daytime" impression of attractive looking (thanks to some neon and tunes) place in the night time .. the story is completed with a taxicab waiting to take somebody home to face the "truth"(read - a wife, LOL)..well spotted and processed, thank you for sharing ..
Permission granted, welcome on board, Pierre .. looking at your gallery, we should hold on and get ready for a Storm of fine work heading our way.. lovely images posted today, including the Botanical garden panorama ..
Excellent capture, Eduardo.. agree with Rick about exceptional catch! Lovely composition and demanding exposure.. seems the two guys are ignoring each other, LOL .. beautiful work, thank you for posting and sharing ..
