  • Replied in Back Shore
    Nicely captured piece of beach/shoreline that evokes,for me, a solitary type vibe. I'd love to see the whole of the tree within the frame but maybe it was just too tall. Good seeing eye, just the same.
  • Replied in Dune
    Nice and well seen composition. I like the leading line of the fence. Not sure of the blade of grass exiting diagonally into the corner (pulls my eye away somewhat) but overall, it's not doing too ...
  • Replied in Escalators
    Vidau, I really like this series of escalator images. The symmetrical composition of # 1 works very well and the diagonal compositions of #2  and #3 (with added human interest) are appealing also. ...
  • Replied in Wasteland
    Nice atmospheric feel to this image. The sense of abandonment is there. Also, there is a nice tonality going on. These images of lost, abandoned Texas always interest me. BTW, looks like I'm ...
  • Replied in Unnoticed
    Nice set  Vidau. In particular, I like how the light falls on the scene in image #3. Regards.
  • Not a big fan of cat images per se but this is one hard to dislike. I like how the cat's eyes are sharp and everything else seems to fade and soften and go outta focus. A good capture. Regards. To ...
  • Replied in Honolulu
    Real nice capture. A highrise cityscape that is well composed and seen. Kinda evokes for me some kind of a medium format film take of yesteryear. Well done.
  • As we talk, I'm on a family holiday in Portugal. :-) I do very little SP in Ireland, as I feel somewhat uncomfortable in this genre of photography. I think maybe with DSLRs, we are very ...
  • Excellent composition. Holds the viewer's attention and tells a story and that's wonderful in a photo. I envy your SP. Regards.
  • Replied in Look In
    Missed out on this image earlier, Ken. Am on family holiday in Portugal so that's my excuse. :-) Really good image and love the composition. It's made for B&W and quite atmospheric too. One of your ...
  • Generally, I've found macro shots (especially of insects) work best in colour but your B&W conversion here is excellent in my book. The focus is sharp on the wasp and I like the reflection of its ...
  • A modern day pirate, did you catch him by stealth ? Where is his ship ? :-)
  • Looks like the image could've been taken in an earlier era like the 60s or early 70s, especially with the clothes attire of the couple. For me, this nostalgic aspect works very well along with the ...
  • Replied in Man in Shadows
    Strong composition and well captured. The square frame is working well with the image. I was gonna ask you what B&W conversion you used as it's impressive but maybe that is asking too much.. :-) Re ...
  • Replied in Playfully
    Meant to comment on this image sooner.. looks like a fun time captured as your boy is upside down and enjoying looking at the world from there. The light is emphasized on his face and upper body ...
  • The light inside the room really makes the image for me and the B&W rendering is tasty. I know it was there but I wish that central horizontal window bar weren't there though, it kinda jars for me ...
  • Not as confused as I initially was! :-) Looks like I misread your comment so ignore my previous question. FWIW, I like your contribution to the forum and  many of the images you post here (more ...
  • Fair enough point, Rick. Was a bit confounded by the comment (as you may have been having to read it twice) and  wasn't sure if it was meant for me. Looks like I misread the comment.
  • Replied in RatRod
    The diagonal type compositions and shallow depth of field work well here for me. Good also that you've used a standard lens (50mm); my first impression was of a wide angle lens being used. I've ...
  • Welcome Don't know what to make of this comment.... do you reckon I gave you  empty platitudes?
