Wow all the above and more,congratulations on your EC,well deserved.
Simply stunning. Very well captured. The colours are out of this world.
Congrats on the award Eric, this one truly deserves it.
Thank you very much Hudson, glad you like it.
Amazing colours and textures in this very original image. A well deserved EC
Thank you Graham, good to hear from you.
Well done on EC Eric. This is great work.
I am considering a 300D myself. Think I'll go and order it now.
Thanks Brian, very flattering. It's a good camera, but the automatic settings can't be relied upon for creative images, especially in high contrast and low light situations. Happily, there's manual control. Wish it had a split ring option for manual focus and I wish there were some way of having dof markings on the lens barrel like the older slr zoom lenses. You have to make do with a dof button which closes the aperture, but I find this misleading as the darkened image often appears to indicate a good sharp image over a wide dof, when in fact either the background or foreground turn out to be softer than expected when you zoom in to examine the results. It's also chunky and damned heavy!
Still, when all said and done, when it all comes together, it works. It didn't take long to grow accustomed to its little eccentricities. I'm saving for another lens as soon as I've a working burn drive in my computer.
Wonderful image Eric and apolgies for not commenting sooner,super colours and shot! Congrats on EC! Regards Steve.
bit late, but thought i would add my congratulations, lovely shot eric, super colours, you do like your green dont you? :o)
Thanks Steve and Danny, great to hear from both of you. Greens are good for you Danny, didn't your mum tell you?
Hey Eric, well done! Missed this while I was away. Great colouring and I love the composition here also.

Many thanks Phil and Patrizia.

Fantastic Eric. One of your best I think - the colours and texture all come together and make this a real treat for the eyes. Every element in this from the screws to the latch itself really delight the eye and you get a real sense of the craftsmanship in the making of it. Big click.

No, it will be left on the latch Danny.
Nearing the Century mark! As long as it doesn't become doormant (sic), then you should catch sight of it soon.
Sorry, I can't handle this any longer, I'm becoming unhinged!!!
Sounds like you are taking a lot of pun-ishment.
With the number of comments I have on my pictures(10 is my maximum so far on one image), maybe not as much as I might!
click number 99 ! quality shot
Many thanks Kevin! Just one more to go.

Congratulations on recieving an editors choice award.

Great texture and colours.
I like this Eric. Lovely colours. At first I thoght it was digitally manipulated.
Thanks Mike and Peter, good to have your comments.
I suppose I would say this is my kind of photo, (hopefully more evident as my portfolio comes together), rust and mould, metal and wood, man and nature in harmony.
Nice job Eric.
Thanks for stopping by to view and comment Ian. Good to hear from you.
Great colours. Well seen as well, has an intriguing quality about it which makes it an attractive image. Can't put my finger on it but it works.....
p.s. 125 clicks. well done. is that a record?
Thanks Sean, not a record by a long way. There are pics I've seen that have topped the 200 clicks.
Been looking through your portfolio and I think your images are fantastic, but this one stood out (not just to me it seems!). Love the colours and texture, you can almost reach out and touch it and know what sound it would make when opened. Congratulations.
Glad you think so Ewan, good to have your opinion.

Thanks Jonatan, good to have your opinion.
True, this is (among others of yours) a very, very good and poetic picture. And thanks for your kind, useful and well pointed comments.
My pleasure Ariel, good to hear from you.
Great shot Eric! I am sorry I didn't see it sooner. It's amazing how many colors were captured if you really think about it in such a small area! that much color is usually found in landscapes. simple subject but very strong! tonymarq
Thanks Tony. Yes, it was the mix of colour that caught my eye on this one. The door was a very old one and had been re-painted a fair few times, I think. The steamy atmosphere of the greenhouse had also encouraged a lot of micro plant growth on the wood.
I re-visted recently, and the door has been replaced, although I was happy to see, they had kept the old latch and transferred it the new door.
Superb composition, the colours really jump out at you. Deserves every click it got.
The Shed Man
Glad you think so Graeme.
