    Thanks for your comments! It is indeed hard to capture the ferocity of the birds' excitement in a still capture. I probably should have shot on a burst mode and perhaps would have got more keepers. ...
  • What an interesting reflection effect! The vehicle bends the scene in a way that forces us to look again and figure out the "how" of it. Good rich colors. You have mastered a lot of fun with that ...
  • Just Wow! The starry sky wasn't a necessity for the impact of this image, but it does add some mystery. I feel like I'm looking at a fantasy scene from a video game or the sequel to Avatar , or an ...
  • Well taken images that go a bit beyond mere illustration. The first, with the hat hung just above the keyhole tells a rich story, and the final one with the back view of the orthodox scholar using ...
  • A lovely scene that makes me wonder where your viewpoint might be - an airplane? A drone? You've captured the crowded little island and its neighbors in the shape of fish, as if they are swimming ...
  • An impressive aquatic/industrial set. By creating excellent black and white conversions of these marvels, you have emphasized the geometry but also turnt the captures into art. And I agree about ...

    This is so much like one I took that when I first saw it I thought "I don't remember posting it but I remember taking it". I love it for the same reason I took mine: the silhouette of the bird ...
  • Replied in Golden hour
    Capturing the golden light through the framing of the shadowed trees is dramatic and peaceful at the same time. I like the first one best because the colors and contrasts in the distance are ...
  • Replied in Pelican Jubilee
    Yesterday there was a wild occurrence here at the beach where conditions favored plenty for all. Small schools of fish got trapped behind newformed sandbars, bigger fish pursued them in, then ...
  • What a beautiful and well-presented little falls! The colors are so rich - the water below, the foliage. I like that you included a bit of the reservoir of water at the top of the cliff, showing ...
  • As a standard photo, the scene might be only mildly interesting but as a reflection, its level of interest skyrockets. The most intriguing is the lower left corner which is so confusing that one ...
  • Replied in Jealousy
    The intriguing part of this image is the sense that the foreground character in the painting is interacting with the museum visitors.

    Wonderful! Great framing, great color, incredible sharpness. I’m super impressed with the photo, the photographer and the lens. And you have revived my yearning for this lens.

    Can’t beat that spotting! Well done from the angle to the primary colors to the lighting. This sort of thing has to be spotted and acted on so quickly. I am afraid I don’t think that fast any more.
  • Very nice and more impressive by the hard-fought-for angle that gave you sky behind the figure. The others you posted later are equally nice, especially the ultra wide shot with the water in front ...
  • Replied in At The Pier
    Last night's fisherman left a homemade prop - he cut a bamboo pole from the bamboo thicket alongside, and attached a wire basket using surveyors plastic. I took my pictures and left it in place.
  • Nice photo story with crisp colorful images, well composed and executed. You demonstrate the careful curation of this museum very well. There’s a lot of subtle geometry in these images that helps ...
  • Replied in Birds ..
    That street art is exceptionally beautiful, with a definite feel of a classic Japanese painting. That you have found a little model for it makes two-for-one. Both are art. Well presented.
  • Well I must say I have not seen a bin for weaponry either. One has to wish to be on hand to see exactly how this works. Do people walk up and drop in bombs? Swords? Guns? Are the passers by ...
  • Replied in A Fun Image..
    He’s a cutie and catching him through the “eye” of the walker apparatus is indeed fun. Framing it in that craquelure effect pulls him out from what looks like it might be a busy background that ...
