Didn’t bother me, Dee – seemed quite positive! 🙂March 13, 2013 at 7:36 pm #3485
That’s a high contrast pattern picture Ian with some interesting shapes. To me it looks a bit to contrasty, but I know you like that effect and if often works well in your images. Does this picture work well in colour?March 13, 2013 at 7:48 pm #3486
Thanks, Peter. I processed it to enhance the differnces in tonality in the various blocks of triangular shape. It has a green filter applied to lighten the pale leaves in the lower bush, and various local dodgings and burnings to separate the other tonal regions.
In colour, these differences are less obvious and the shape and geometry of the tonal elements is therefore not so distinct.
The image is all about triangles, both in the shapes of the elements and in the compositional geometry.March 16, 2013 at 4:03 pm #3531
March entry – “Tulip petals” (after Blakemore!)
(As these are on my dining room table, they are arguably within 100 paces of my door!)

Lovely Ian. Is there a slight vignette or was it the lighting set-up? It works very well whatever is.March 17, 2013 at 5:34 am #3534
Thanks, Dee. Vignette? Probably – I usually add a touch! But the natural light was interestingly uneven anyway, and some of the petals were darker than others.March 17, 2013 at 11:11 am #3538
Just been for a short break to a caravan site near Southampton which gave me a new but temporary door, cheeky or what?.

Neat trick, moving your door! I particularly like ‘Lets Play’: nice, clean composition on the diagonal + repetition of forms. And cheery colour.March 17, 2013 at 6:59 pm #3541
I’m sure Mr. Blakemore would have been proud to have taken your tulip shot Ian. To me it shows how good Fuji lens is corner to corner and like I said on your flickr site, you dont need a focal point to create a great picture.
I, like Ian , like Dennis’ ‘lets Play’ shot best of his three. The soft clouds contrast nicely with the bold framework structure. All the posts are well separated and not hiding behind each other. You’ve done well to get in close on the ariel, but I think it needs to be a bit more dramatic. Perhaps try tilting the camera to angle the ariel or take with the sun peeping through?March 18, 2013 at 8:45 am #3543
Thanks for the encouraging points gents, they will spur me on.
If you don’t see any comments from me towards other members work its because at the moment I feel I need a lot more experience.March 18, 2013 at 1:34 pm #3544
Dennis you don’t need to have expierence to comment. Thats what the forum is all about, that everybody has a point of view and newer members tend to have thoughts that we might not have thought about because we know the member so well. So please don’t be afraid to comment. As long as its a fair critque then thats a good enough starting point.March 18, 2013 at 4:36 pm #3545
Can I echoe Meg’s reply, Dennis? Do please chip in! Another reason for doing so is that writing short critiques of others’ photos is very beneficial for your own photography – it’s just another way of making yourself think about what makes a good picture, what it is you like about certain images and not others, and how photos work visually. As Meg says, you don’t have to be a great expert with a camera to say what you like about someone else’s pictures! 😉March 20, 2013 at 8:56 pm #3557
I thought it was about time I made the effort to post an image on this thread so I took this boring photo of my washing and tried to make it a bit more interesting.
I think it’s another case of an interesting idea, but I need a better subject.March 21, 2013 at 9:22 am #3560
To find an interesting subject within the 100 paces remit was quite a challenge but your image shows your skills with software unfortunatly I think I spot some colour in the corner the garden just to the left of the lowest sleeve.
Never the less it must have taken a lot of time to achieve the result and I feel you’ve done the best you could with what you had because of all that I don’t think its boring.
