  • 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?
  • Good opportune capture, Vidau. Was this image caught with your smaller SP (Sony?) camera? Were you on the footpath or in a car whilst taking the image? It's 20 questions night! :-) Regards.
  • It's a very good location with great potential. As has been said, a lot going on and the eye wanders back and forth trying anchor somewhere. Well worth revisiting again hopefully in even better ...
  • Replied in Rachael Tiger
    Wasn't sure on first viewing this image if it was taken from the outside of an aquarium.Then, I noted later you said there were a lot of plankton in the water so assume you had some kind of ...
  • Nice series of images. They have a kind of in your face rawness that captures perhaps fond memories for the viewers ,along with you, who witnessed these moments. I like that the Elvis appears in ...
  • Replied in Shadow
    Looked more like a mural to me than a shadow on the wall. Nevertheless, it makes for an interesting and,for me, somewhat compelling composition. The mix of light and shade hitting the wall and ...
  • Replied in Sunlight
    Hard to criticize too much in this image. It has wonderful light beams shining down across the road that evokes a kinda heavenly light in the scene. A lovely and well lit composition. Respectfully ...
  • Replied in Leaning tree
    Looks an enchanting type tree. As if it could be from a magical type forest a la the TV series, Game of Thrones ( notorious for some people) .  :-) Regards.
