  • The mirror like reflections make for some interesting shapes - Perhaps a bit off the top and bottom? Monty
  • Replied in Slow Melt
    Excellent detail of a unique subject - The droplet forming at the bottom reinforces the title - B&W is certainly the proper choice for this shot - Monty
  • Fishermen on the ground and fishermen in the air - Photographed from a different and interesting perspective - Monty
  • Quite the trick shot - I often wondered about Nessie - A great idea for a photo sequence - Monty
  • Quite a varied 6 pack - I particularly like number 3 'growth' with the mismatched angles - That camera seems to perform well when used as you have here - Monty
  • Last week Mike Fewster was good enough to give me some constructive pointers about my photos - He in fact pointed me in a different direction then my normal 'constructor' or '3/4 front' views I do ...

  • Welcome to the Wednesday Comments and Critique (No Theme) thread! We are continuing the great tradition of this C&C thread because we are convinced that looking at and talking about images is vital ...
  • Just great - With that loooong hood is that a straight 8 or a V 12? I just love these old cars and the angles you shoot them at - Monty
  • Just one look and you can tell it's a Packard - Even in that condition there is an understated elegance about it - For me I find the moon a distraction - The first shot of the lone hockey ...
  • I would crop the first one in from the right perhaps almost to the first stone post as the stark whiteness grabs the eye and won't let go - The moth at original size is terrific! - Monty
  • Replied in Graze - In IR
    I'm not an IR kind of guy - However this is quite a fine study - The contrail serves to remind us of the current year as the scene could be from the '40s or '50s - I don't think it detracts at all - ...
  • Replied in Goin' Nowhere
    Mike - I love these pics - It appears to me some of these old rattlers could be targets for restoration by the antique truck nuts - Are they all rusted out or do some of the bodies look salvageable? ...
  • Lou - The only thing I see is the need for cropping from the top down - It appears to be just too much head room - Monty
  • Fog can be like a chameleon and take on the colours of what can be seen through - In this instance you have caught it just as it appears to be rising - The ghostly appearance of the trees on the ...
  • Very surreal - The absolute clarity of the water and the guppy swimming over the leaf reminds me of something Dali or the like would paint- Monty
  • I certainly agree with your assessment of the two lenses - These are both with the 12-60 as I am trying to find its limitations for my type of usage - Monty
  • The two pics do tell the story - The second certainly shows some admiration in the eyes of the young ladies - I thought I recognized the first photo - I guess I am not as forgetful as I thought! Monty
  • Replied in Do not pass
    The way the two yellow road lines parallel the horizon and compliment the trees shows a good eye - This has a very pleasant appeal to it - Monty
