What a great start to the month, well done chaps; one colour IR, one moody blue, one bluebell wood and a poem – and it’s only 2 May!!!May 2, 2014 at 10:11 pm #6368
Two great images there Ken that aptly illustrate this month’s theme. The IR image looks like a snow scene. I love its sense of depth. I like the way you’e used the iron work as foreground to the picture in your second picture. I think the blue tone works well.
I like your peaceful shot of the bluebell woods Wallace. They make a great foreground which leads into the picture. I think the trees on the sides help the frame and keep the eye in the picture.May 3, 2014 at 12:17 am #6369
Paradise lost has a lovely feel to it Ken, but I find the blue colour and the black line / top of the fence which cuts the 2nd image in half through the centre a bit too strong for me. A wonderful idea to include poetry with the bluebell wood Wallace. Really brings the image alive. What a shame we can’t do this in competitions.May 3, 2014 at 9:40 pm #6370
Oh Delores—the railings is harking back to the dark days –its the sort of things we used to do–“desperate ” is the word.Before colour so thats going back . The photo is recent –so thats desperate too . The church is at Holmes Chapel along side a nice white walled pub. Nice place to have a CPS summer meet one lunch time. Yes the poem of Wallace is good, a new idea to have a poem for a print. nature section–birdie-birdie flying high—-dropped its message from the sky. Said Ian to Wallace wiping their eye–its good for us giraffes don”t fly.sorry webmaster!!!May 4, 2014 at 7:37 pm #6383
A sense of place…

YEP–Great pic Ian– ( is it the bus station???)May 4, 2014 at 10:24 pm #6392
Ken >>> LoL!May 5, 2014 at 8:20 pm #6412
Interesting composition Ian. I’m still to work out how to interpret ‘A sense of place’ in a single photograph. I’ll work it out given time! In your last image I looked at the circular tap first, then the handle leads to the circular plate. Is that the idea?May 5, 2014 at 9:10 pm #6413
I was lucky enough to visit Blist Hill again on Sunday. (I have a season ticket that’s about to run out)
To me, these photos give me a sense of place. Hope you agree. Just for Ken, I’ve included a real live steam engine.May 6, 2014 at 10:46 am #6414
Smashing contributions, Peter. I particularly like the girl washing the horse’s foot (though I wonder whether cropping out or desaturating the red area on the right might make it even better); and the third one with the railwayman shrouded in steam.
You said, “In your last image I looked at the circular tap first, then the handle leads to the circular plate. Is that the idea?”
Yes, besides alluding to the location as a whole, the photograph has visual plays on repeated shapes and lines of various sorts, and the overall form of the composition is based on the golden ratio. So quite geometric!May 6, 2014 at 3:51 pm #6415
A really great set of photo”s Peter—the girl washing the shire horse hoofs–stunning- what a lovely photo. Like Ian said–perhaps fill the red in with some wall bricks. All super–thanks for my steam engine-thats amazing. But the shire horse pic –everything is right in my book-the bucket–lighting on girls face–what a great catch. Please your season ticket is running out Peter—we might stand a chance with our pics. LOL. Well done.May 6, 2014 at 4:46 pm #6416
Essentials, but… who’s behind Foster Grant’s?
