  • I love the poetic atmosphere created by the lonely landscape and soft light. A good composition too. Pete
  • Replied in Canva
    An interesting study in triangular lines and the subtle shading. Nicely composed. Pete
  • Very simple scene, but made more interesting by the diagonals, but as usual, a bit of thought produced even more interesting interpretations. Clever and subtle. Pete
  • Excellent. The scene, the composition, the reflection, the processing, all of it. Pete
  • Intriguing, even if this photo is an imposter! I enjoy the humour, and can’t help but think that the guard is sleeping through a theft, as some art thief whisks this piece from under his nose and ...
  • Tremendous. It was well worth the climb to get this angle and frame of the subject, leaving enough to see what it is, but still present the ship from an unusual angle. The slightly cream colour and ...
  • Another good concert series, with good use of the lights and diagonal composition. The only criticism are the blown highlights in the fist, which spoils it, and in the third, which gets away with ...
  • A delightful puzzle of optical illusion and just as you decide think you have it solved and are trying to decide where the painting finishes and the photo begins, you realise it is all a ...
  • Replied in Mother and Child
    A short series from the Galapagos. Pete
  • As mentioned a few posts below, I use an Op/Tech Urban Sling, which connects to the strap lugs of the camera and leaves the tripod thread completely free for wharever tripod bracket you require. ...
  • Definitely taken in the 70's! ;-) There are lots of pleasing mysteries: What are they carrying? The ground is so high-key that we cannot be sure the feet are on the ground. Are they really puppets ...
  • Replied in Aura
    Yes, that really is a neat effect and a shame that knowledge of PP software means that we cannot immediately appreciate it for what it is! I also like the wide, crunchy stone base, which becomes  ...
  • This just about sums up what I like about Lisbon - a beauty from a past age, lots of patina, but still working (I assume!) Well spotted and good you thought to photograph it. Pete
  • Replied in Marlboro man
    I've just watched a film set in 1929 in Berlin. Everybody was smoking, all the rooms were thick with smoke and cigarettes were the social opening gambit. Now smokers hide down alleys. Is that van ...
  • An excellent documentary series. A country day passed with an age-old process, even if the machines and methods are modern, the work is still satisfying with a definite beginning and succesful ...
  • Replied in Resolve
    Driftwood, but .... It is a gnarled hand. But is it that of Mother Nature's desperate, weakening grip on Earth? Or is it the evil hand of mankind, withered by greed and eagerly snatching what it ...
  • Replied in Girl Power
    I don't think she was the graffiti artist - certainly not on that day, as she is a) too smartly dressed and b) too short to reach ;-) Pete
  • Replied in Girl Power
    Translated, the graffiti reads: I do not want women to have power over men, but over themselves. Hope it happens in her lifetime. Pete
  • Oh boy, Lou, that's more than enough bad news in your life at the moment. I hope the suggestions made help bear fruit and unearth the lost treasures. In any case nobody has a monopoly on bad news, ...
  • Replied in Just say..
    Welcome to the thread. As you have no doubt noticed, it is usually very active between Wednesday and Friday, and cools rapidly over the weekend, so it is best to post on Wednesday or Thursday to ...
