  • What a beautifully done B&W photo. The detail and lighting is exquisite. I think the imperfections of a slightly bent lower petal and an invading ant add greatly to the appeal. Pete
  • Replied in Parade ground
    There is not much here to indicate a parade ground in an old fort. In fact it is a picture made of clues. There is the lower part of a tree, but we probably learn more about its true shape from ...
  • The bear seems to be asleep under the tree, because we are used to interpreting body language in a human way, but, of course, you are right with your description of boundary marking maybe ...
  • And why not, indeed? :-) I, for one, have never been to Galeries Lafayette, even though I have been to Paris many times, so your photo is definitely not a hackneyed copy to me, but rather an item ...
  • City districts go through interesting cycles. What starts as an upmarket area for middle classes gradually runs down and falls into neglect and becomes attractive for artists, anarchists, students ...
  • Replied in Israel trip
    I went there 3 years ago, and looking at the lenses used in LR, here are the statistics: Oly 9-18 f4-5.6       0.5% Oly 12-40 f2.8      73.9% Oly 12 f2               12.2% Oly 40-150 f4-5.6 12.1% O ...
  • After a wet night, the morning is brightening up for the school children’s journey to school across the river. Dressed immaculately in their uniforms of white shirts with black trousers for the ...
  • Robert, I will certainly look forward to seeing more of your work here, and the very different view you provide - literally. Pete
  • The red/orange earth and the greens of the foliage gives every photo of the Australian Outback a head start. This mayhem of rocks and roots seem to depict a struggle for life. It suggests a rugby ...
  • Replied in Mortal Coil
    This could be a box of chocolates, with a rather elaborate bow. I hope that does not sound condescending, as it was not meant to be. Rather it shows you have created something attractive that ...
  • Replied in Footloose
    Yet another wonderful observation, Don!  Not only do the yellows of the shoe and the scooter link, but an up-turned scooter even resembles a high-heeled shoe in shape. Then the running boy hides ...
  • What a great portrait! A teddy resting peacefully on the beach, half-asleep ……. but then you notice the claws, and suddenly the eyes are no longer half-asleep, but watching patiently! Taken from ...
  • You describe a struggling town, which is in danger of dying altogether, but your photos are bright and cheerful, presumably because that is exactly how the town is, despite its problems. In any ...
  • I agree with all three previous posters. Like Minnie, I really like the first shot. The second is interesting as a shot from an unusual angle, but lacks the composition and artistic interest of the ...
  • Replied in Erosion
    I like the colours and the composition. The man-made, straight-edged objects are placed brutally in the foreground, which is appropriate for their original purpose. Behind these  the natural, ...
  • Replied in The Witnesses?
    Taken in Hyde Park, London a few days ago. Pete
  • Many macro photos are good, simply because they are sharp, and show details we haven't seen before. Others go a step further and are artistically composed or tell a story. This photo does all of ...
  • Replied in Bread Putting
    Timing, lighting, focus -all excellent. The acknowledged rule is that  motion should be into the frame, not out of it, but I think this is one which succeeds in breaking the rule. Why? Possibly ...
  • Replied in Reel Him In
    The concrete stage separates the maelstrom from the calm waters, and between them a fight for survival, with the heron seemingly ensuring nourishment for a while longer. The stage couldn't be ...
  • Lovely clear lines. Straight lines, curved lines and lines reduced to squiggles in reflections. Terrific lighting too, highlighting the arched area and creating reflections in the otherwise flat ...
