Mike Fewster's recent activity

  • Replied in 2cv (I think?)
  • Replied in Lotus Flower
    This one kept nagging at me. I tried Pate's suggestion of blocking off a little of the black on the right.  Immediately, I felt at home with the result and the leaf no longer felt "wrong." As ...
  • Checked https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Architecture_of_the_Netherlands As suspected, the story is interesting. The religious connection was unexpected. Thanks Lou
  • As I write this, I am yet to go Googling for the answer. There has to be a reason for the development  and widespread use of a roofline like this and it promises to be an interesting story. It ...
  • Mondriaan is a favourite of mine.  I like those black and white striped poles and I like the frame shapes of the fencing that echo the blocks of colour. Maybe crop in to add them together?
  • Replied in an idea ...
    Hi Lou, Thanks, that is definitely better. Maybe I should just have used Photoshop to select the area of the painting and popped the colour selectively there? I wanted the final to have more VG ...
  • The whole thing just went strange and I never got it right.  I was in the garden and that was a large postcard in a display. I wanted to run the Vincent into the reality as it appeared on that ...
  • A kindred spirit. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-06/queensland-police-commissioner-saddened-by-gun-billboard/10588976?WT.ac=statenews_qld Zin, Christmas is a wonderful occasion for symbolism ...
  • Replied in Lotus Flower
    The translucent petals, etched veins and overlapping arches  form an elegant statement. The leaf behind however spoils the shape. IMHO. It detracts from the purity of form of the flower against ...
  • Minniev, I have suspicions about just what we are looking at here. The posters are being held to attract attention, but, based on the two on the right,  business can't be too brisk. they are bored ...
  • The mood is totally different but the visual style is very similar to that of your shot last week. Strong front to rear diagonals take is to the subject. Rich blacks. Fringing lighting delineating ...
  • Replied in A New World
    Presumably, we are watching a bonding/get to know each other activity. Young people, tossing and catching the world. The ball/globe could not be better placed. In Australia, we have just had a ...
  • Because of the shadows, we dont feel that we are too far away from the subjects. The beach, surfers and ocean are all linked. Appropriately. The lines on the surfboard happily continue the lines ...
  • Something is odd with the colours in V1. V2 seems better but I still dont like the colour of the shadows on the wall. If I decrease the purple tone the green gets violent?
  • Hello Calum. As we have discussed this shot before and as my thoughts were largely along the lines of those others here have shared, I'll add just one comment. I hadn't noticed before the bright ...
  • Replied in Apparition
    The formal, mathematically precise and blocked colours of the background are perfect to contrast with the ethereal, imprecise and shimmering image that floats above it. I think it is that contrast ...
  • Perhaps we are looking at this image the wrong way? If we regard it as a macro, it lacks focus and also loses too much detail through noise. I think it is the wrong way to consider the image. ...
  • The success of the framing of the singer is obvious. The out of focus hands and foreground move our eye to the focused singer, The right hand side  is especially noteworthy, It would have been ...
