  • I haven't seen it before,and I love it - the crisp details and colors are just great, and the way their reflections shimmers between the chunks of floating ice . But the subject matter is a ...
  • Terrific complementary color tones, with that blaring knife-blade of orange light slashing through the left side and forcing us to look up and down it. We are rewarded with the shadowy reflections ...
  • This set really shows off the vastness and drama of the area - and the starkness of the land contrasted with the rich color. I like them as a set or individually, but if shown as a set, I like #3, ...
  • Love the word play, but I did need it explained to me, so thanks for that. I like the image, perhaps wish it had more space around the edges but the placement does emphasize their movement (which ...
  • Replied in Merri-Gale II
    First I want to brag on you for (a) experimenting and (b) being bold enough to post it for others' opinions. Experimentation is fun, and we learn as we go - what we like, what others like, how to ...
  • as the conductor brings the performance to a close. It was a rather sedate, subdued performance. (I don't know what the fisherman was doing that required all this waving about, perhaps he had his ...
  • Replied in Robin
    Nicely caught. You've managed the clutter of his chosen environment well. That is one portly robin.
  • Ah,composition, and composition! Els' echoing of the crooked-arm-above-head poses of the ladies running down the exhibit wall is just perfect, as is her placement in the frame. In the second ...
  • An wonderfully dramatic and beautiful landscape scene, well captured and nicely composed. The contrasty lighting is hard on such scapes, but nature gives up what it gives us when we are there, and ...
  • Replied in Separate Ways
    Ha! Levi's,huh? The strong V shape dominates the composition and basically divides the frame into two photos, one below the other but slightly overlapped, but with very different subjects, colors, ...
  • Replied in Starfall
    As usual, you've taken a mundane view and made it anything but, with titling and color and framing. The one thing that sets this apart from similar views is the tilt, which creates both boundary ...
  • Looks like you got everything lined up just perfectly, something that appeals to me with my affection for good geometry.  The scene is well organized, and my eye can follow all the lines ...
  • A kind of subjectless photo (there's ducks but you have to hunt for them) that's mainly about dawn light in the wetlands, pretty much SOOC. All suggestions appreciated including crops. I've taken ...
  • Wonderful "through the ages" essay. What is amazing is that you've been this good all along. I cannot say the same. Of course my years are different (1960-1966 then a lapse until 2008 when I ...
  • Those Christmas images are my very favorites of your posts that I've ever seen, Andrew. I think they are magnificent, Rockwellian, and deserving of a sale to Hallmark or some other card company. I ...
  • A cool Great Seal for us, reminds me of emblems on the gates of castles and other important buildings in Europe. A fun way to start off this ambitious thread, which looks to me like it will run ...
  • Welcome back, and thanks for a beautiful image to mark the big 500. The tree doubles as a sun with a thousand rays! You chose a great angle for this dynamic composition.
  • That is so fascinating, to photograph the same flowers with two Oly's several generations/iterations apart, both appealing in their own way but reflective of the cameras/lenses as well as the ...
  • Though I didn't begin participating in this thread until July of 2013, I had "lurked" a long time trying to get up the courage to offer images for true critique from people whose work I admired. I ...
  • Replied in Shame
    Life ate up last week, so I've been negligent too. With prompting from Roel, I am just now discovering this wonderful feast of images and thoughts celebrating our milestone!
