Oh I love this John, first a great diagonal and no clutter either. Second I love the double shadow of the actual shadow and then the old chaps shadow cast on the sunlight pavement.I think sometimes we just have to break the rules and not worry about what a judge might or might not like.July 13, 2015 at 9:30 am #10126
Yes definitely trim the bottom of the image I think it’s not doing anything for the photograph.The blade is a problem, have you a square image? Just a thought!June 4, 2015 at 3:44 pm #9859
I like your thinking John especially the last one, shanks’s pony is usually left out. The only thing is as my mum used to say to my brothers, “Your trousers look as though they’ve divorced your ankles and married your knees.” I probably the angle, but it’s made me smileJune 2, 2015 at 2:10 pm #9839
Well done les nice to see you put something on. Like the mono and the diagonal shot, as well as the ancient and modern modes of transport. I know I still have problems uploading so perhaps on an open night a quick tutorial might be handy.June 1, 2015 at 3:27 pm #9833
Sounds good and only fair to me John, even if you put in the whole 12 prints that’s still only £6:00. Considering Bebbington was costlier it seems value for money.May 27, 2015 at 11:04 am #9784
Two very different interpretations of interiors. Ian I love the feeling of space around yours even though you are very much enclosed by the canopy of leaves. Johns interior shot has the feel of abandonment with the door leading us into the image. A good choice of monthly challenge and the feedback as per good tips and insights.May 20, 2015 at 9:49 am #9729
Thanks for posting that Pete. The reason I chose it was because it reminded me of Escher’s complex and confusing stairwells that seemed to be forever turning in on themselves. Yes the bright signs at the bottom are a bit distracting and appreciate comments.April 30, 2015 at 11:56 am #9581
Makes you want to weep doesn’t it Wallace? They are beautiful and something that we can aspire to.April 28, 2015 at 10:57 am #9574
Great Images Dolores well balanced and not a lot of noise with the high iso. A good selection. Will post mine when I work out how to do it.April 26, 2015 at 3:06 pm #9554
Hi Pete great images and you have handled the night really well. Spot on. Mine are so grainy and noisy that I’ll have to be very very picky with the ones I choose to air.April 13, 2015 at 2:10 pm #9474
I do love your shots from postcards from Wales Pete, all shot from very differing viewpoints therefore pushing the boundaries of our usual understanding of landscapes etc.
I think your two shots of the pier from Llandudno and the seat from Portmeirion as trying to see things from a different perspective. The Pier one is more of an abstract image , I think. Though I feel the Portmeirion one is more successful, I’m sure Ian’s themes on golden ratios etc would explain this in more technical circumstances.
Pictorially I really like the trees as they lead the eye upward to an off centre point, rather then just a shot of looking straight up at the trees it makes for a more pleasing image. The second landscape, I know we all had problems on this day as we were shooting into such strong sunlight that highlights, especially in the sky area, unless well handled could so easily have been blown beyond rescue. So you did well to get such an image and know you will do more to rescue it.
All in all Pete five lovely images of Wales and i must take the time to upload my 5 from Wales.April 5, 2015 at 12:59 pm #9370
Thanks for the info Dee, I’m sure there will be many turning up for that.April 5, 2015 at 12:57 pm #9369
Nice Mac to see the warmth in this image. Capturing just the right moment.April 4, 2015 at 10:07 am #9363
It would be a dull politically correct world if we banned everything that is considered not fit to be seen in society. If we go being upset or being offended on behalf of the public’s gaze, then would we have to ask the BBC and all the other TV, film industries, etc, not to show people smoking.Therefore all those glorious re runs of say Carry On, or any of the great detective shows, etc, which may show people smoking will never make public viewing, just because someone is upset on our behalf. No I think the general public are quite capable of making the distinction for themselves..March 14, 2015 at 10:29 am #9227
Very interesting is that the largest housing scheme. If it is I think I was there visiting friends relatives in the late 70s. Interesting idea as well.
