Like I wrote on your Flickr site, I think the first photo looks like it cold have been taken in the 1930s, except for the Fiesta. I think it creates an atmosphere of someone going about their daily chores on a dull day.
The second photo is well spotted. I like the way the reflection of the building seems to fit in with the polish on the window. It give quite a brzzar effect.February 6, 2016 at 10:32 pm #11307
I took this photo while exploring the Rialto market in Venice. I think it depicts the market atmosphere

IAN —after extensive trials -on this Samsung –pics will only download here if camera is set on RAW/SUPERFINE. But hey presto now I know.February 7, 2016 at 3:48 pm #11316
Ken >>> Yes, the RAW files, presumably converted by you to JPEG, will be fine. The problem with the out-of-camera Samsung JPEGs is the text that the camera puts into the ‘Caption’ field of the exif data. To use the O-O-C JPEGs, the only solution is to delete this caption data (which you can do in Lightroom, or with an exif editor, or – if you’re feeling dead brave – with the command line instruction in ExifTool, the library and application that underlies many of the graphical exif editors.
Probably easiest to stick with RAW converted to JPEG by you (which won’t write anything to the caption field in the exif data). 😉February 9, 2016 at 10:35 pm #11319
It’s interesting to see what a vast depth of field Ken’s fish eye lens has. It looks sharp all the way through.
I think Ian’s exercise in focusing on the fence and then on the church gives two totally different pictures from the exactly the same location and with the camera set the same except for the focus.
I took a few photos on our Venice trip with this month’s theme in mind. It makes you see the world in a different way and let you experiment with different focusing techniques. These were created using motion blur as much as defocusing but I think it helps the effect. I though they all looked better in black and white. It’ll be interesting to know what members think about them.

Your Venice photos work really well, Peter. I particularly like the first and the last: the contrast between something still and something moving that they both contain creates a dynamic that enlivens the photographs. If you pushed me to make a choice, I’d say the last one is the best, for its graphic simplicity and atmosphere of night-time eeriness. Good work!February 10, 2016 at 8:28 pm #11321
All very good as we expect from Peter–except the last image—which is PURE EXCELLENT–Well done Peter.
