A couple of really interesting shots Mervin. I like the inclusion of the ribbon. It makes you wonder who put it there and if it is in rememberence of a child or an event.December 17, 2014 at 3:25 pm #8418
Ken >>> thanks for that, I love learning new stuff 🙂
D >>> Although it’s a country park it really is quite desolate, so I’d love to know why the ribbon was put there myself.December 19, 2014 at 6:34 pm #8432
I’m playing catch up once more. There’s a great variety of shots from everyone. I saw Ken’s full page spread in the Chronicle and the illustrated the article well. I think Ken’s later shots of the Municipal building area are his best. Perhaps that’s because of the rain soaked pavements reflecting the light. Very festive and Christmasy.
I like the way Ian’s caught the peoples interaction in his market photograph. It’s surprising how dark it can can under a canopy. Market’s are a great place for street photography if you can get away with it.
I also liked the two photos from Mervin. I like the berries because it show the dead ones and the survivor. In the second It like the way the warm coloured bow stands out from the cold harsh background. I think I would have placed the box on the right side, but that’s just a personal thing.
Merry Christmas!December 19, 2014 at 8:00 pm #8433
Thank you Peter for your as always kind and constructive comments. From taking the town lights photo”s –it was almost two weeks waiting for the wet evening conditions to take Memorial Sqr. but if you can it is worth the wait. One of them in Crewe Guardian this week also. Quite agree –Ian is the “Master” of people outside.December 21, 2014 at 10:24 am #8441
Merry Christmas everyone and best wishes for the New Year.
My New Year resolution is to use the forum more!December 21, 2014 at 10:52 am #8442
Ha-ha! Brilliant, Peter! Very best wishes for Christmas & New Year to you, too. (I look forward to seeing more of your work on the Forum.)
(PS I notice your Santa is using Sabian and Zildjian cymbals. Just out of interest, the Turkish/Armenian Zildjian family has been making cymbals for 400 years; but Sabian was started in 1981 by Canadian descendant Robert Zildjian, after a family row. Just a bit of useless forum info! 😉 )December 22, 2014 at 3:13 pm #8460

Some really intersting shots. Like Pete must put more on the forum.New year e=resolution getting my head around uploading images and not losing the computer out of the window.December 23, 2014 at 11:08 am #8481
My photograph of Councillor Pam Minshull at the Crewe Town Council Christmas carol Service in Memorial Sqr. Taken on my 1.4 85mm lens.Enlarging up the wording on the medalion is pin sharp to read.December 23, 2014 at 11:13 am #8483
The Deputy Mayor of Winsford at the Carol Service.December 23, 2014 at 11:23 am #8485
This small part of the image is cropped down to a mini proportion to show the quality of this 85mm lens —and this is at the edge of the frame only stopped down to about 2.4–“at this time of year” my new lens–happy xmas ken.December 23, 2014 at 9:31 pm #8489
I went past the carol service about ten to three but didn’t see anyone I knew or stop to take any photos. I should have had a closer look. I know that’s not a proper lens test Ken, but as you’ve enlarged a small section it looks a good low light lens.December 23, 2014 at 11:18 pm #8490
I did not stay to the end Peter–had to get back to Sasha. Will do a good test on the lens soon-but looks good–not of the finest—but pretty good.Safe journey to the Principality–plenty of water in but have a nice time.December 24, 2014 at 11:54 am #8496
Goodness me Ken, that lens is sharp! You will have some fun with that.
Merry Christmas to you and all the other contributors to the Forum.December 24, 2014 at 8:02 pm #8517
