Mike Fewster's recent activity

  • Yin and Yan. Life and the inevitable. With all the symmetry of classic Yin and Yan symbolism. Sharply observed.
  • Lou is correct that this is a playground for photographers. I wanted to do it "different" and played with those rails which are usually carefully avoided. Most shots from here usually use nd ...
  • While I see the attarction of the cleaned version without the roof, I'm still quite comfortable with the extra triangles of the roof. At first I wanted to ckip the painting section from the left ...
  • Usually, I sort of start at the top and work down through the posts each week. When I came to latest on the birds, I couldn't quite find what I wanted to say. I started writing a couple of times. ...
  • Replied in Just Looking
    Full of ambiguity and possibilities for religious interpretation. Who is watching who, or what? What are the thoughts of the figures? The composition  guides us to think this way. The four  lower ...
  • I was standing on the end of a jetty looking out at the piles that were left after the top of the jetty has been demolished. There is a stainless steel ladder that projects out over the end of the ...
  • Replied in Art or Muppet?
    I am not sure whether or not this is B&W or very restricted colour. Either way, the pen and ink style result is appropriately comic book for the subject.  The multiple circular shadows contribute ...
  • Replied in Exit..
    There is a lot here I like. The framework shape of the walker and its connection to the shapes and colours of the painting. The pattern is again picked up in the beginning of the staircase. ...
  • Replied in Deodorant
    Sorry Roel, my post in the wrong place has stuffed up the responses to your shot. And that's a pity because this is a stunning image that deserves lots of notice and discussion. How to break the ...
  • Do you think it is a little dark? It's tempting to brighten it a bit but this is closer to the scene as it was and I think I like the moodiness of this anyway.
  • Sorry, I should have started a new thread and I posted under Roel's image. I'll repost it  but it is too late to withdraw this thread. Sorry about the confusion.
  • Replied in Two comments
    Don has convinced me as well with his crop.
  • Lou, the problem was caused by me and my loose use of the word "angle." You are correct that I have seen the Mont photographed from this side many times before. What I was referring to was the use ...
  • For mine, it's the colour version that appeals. It isn't just the rich jewel colours in themselves, it seems to work better as a composition as well. The tones in the glass link with the colours ...
  • An image with political punch and then some. The symmetrical arrangement of the shot suggests that the photographer is even handed in the observation. A very potent photograph.
  • This has all the elements consistent with your dam series. The power of the concrete slabs and water, the stage like lighting creating visual drama and all contrasted with the delicate bird(s). At ...
  • Replied in France
    It's refreshing to see a different angle on Mt St. Michel. The sharp promontory of sand  echoes  the spire  and the walls of sand do the same for the stone walls.  Vey nice indeed. The wa oyster ...
  • Replied in InfraRed
    You are correct Roel. The stark white trunks are trees that were killed in a bushfire. A new generation of (mainly snow gums) is pushing up through the taller skeletons  of the previous forest. ...
  • Just checked out the window. Yep, it is indeed already Wednesday. Roel, I can look after the thread for about the next seven weeks. I am just  returning  to the thread from time over Xmas up in the ...
