  • I think you have been very successful in what you were trying to do. I particularly like the first and the last. The first shows the blossom blending with bits from botanical books and, in doing ...
  • Replied in Untitled
    For a moment, I too thought the object in his (her?) right hand was a weapon, especially when looking at the reflection. Is this a result of brainwashing by the news that the mind takes the ...
  • Fascinating architecture caught nicely. I like the inclusion of the tree, as the building itself has a certain organic feel to it, with those asymmetric bridges and stairways. Pete
  • Replied in Mapplethorpe
    Yes, I am another sucker for photos at galleries and museums. I also like to include visitors and this man is perfect, as he looks as though Mapplethorpe himself would have enjoyed photographing ...
  • Replied in Strike a Pose
    It sounds as though the forces of destruction enjoyed your holiday ;-) I hope you find the forces of creation and creativity enjoyed it even more, when you find time to analyse the contents of ...
  • Replied in A mystery
    We follow the girl's gaze up the arch, and we too wonder how on earth it stays up, with only those small stones to distribute the weight. I like the fact that you have used HDR as a useful tool ...
  • Yes, this is yet another of my Cuban photos, and at last a car puts in an appearance! Pete
  • Replied in Reply
    Thanks for the comments! I am pleased that the decisions I made during PP seem to have been successful. The tight crop, for instance, made me pause for a while, because I actually have the ...
  • I have had a similar problem with non-Olympus batteries, but they held their charge for at least one charging cycle. Have you tried charging the battery and leaving it outside the camera overnight ...
  • Is this the record holder for the time elapsed between pressing the shutter button and appearing on C&C? In any case it is reason enough to forgive the sloping horizon ;-) I like the contrasting ...
  • Replied in Quest
    What a beautiful photo. The trees completely encompass the little church, and their vertical lines echo perfectly the verticals in the church, such that the church blends into the trees and ...
  • Well, we must not take the white in whitewashed too seriously ;-) #1 has a palette of white and blue only. The blue wall has a lovely texture, whereas the white wall appears totally smooth and ...
  • Replied in Yemayá 's Dance
    Santeria is a religion in Cuba, mainly amongst the Afro-Cubans. Their original natural religions and their deities(or Orishas) brought with them from West Africa have been syncretized with the ...
  • ... the photo you got is very good and a LOT better than having an alligator smiling over a free lunch! Thanks for telling us about the background to the shot. I know it is frustrating when ...
  • This is a very good shot, but, what stops it being excellent, is the background, as Mike has already said. The problem is that the white patch is very bright, and draws attention to itself. If it ...
  • Replied in Havana
    These cars tell a potted version of Cuba's recent history. Famously, there are many cars from the late 40's, 50's and very early 60's in Cuba, and they are nearly all US models. The cars from the ...
  • Replied in Mon and gnomon
    Thanks for making me find out that gnomon is the thing that casts a shadow on a sundial! I didn't even know it had a name. Shadows are interesting, as we try to glean information on the invisible ...
  • They do indeed look very different, but are linked by blue sky and sunshine. Caleta de Sebo looks new, almost like a newly completed housing development. The houses are straightforward and ...
  • I agree, this is definitely the aftermath of a battle. A shot taken by a fearless photographer at the front, rather than the recruitment poster showing the ranks on parade. I like both shots as ...
  • Pictures from from airliners can be very tedious, but not this one. The billowing clouds are great, ranging in shade from white to a very dark grey, and their curves contrast nicely with the ...
