The 5th Beatle

The 5th Beatle by VicBarnes

A beautifully candid and very personal portrait just dripping with atmosphere and occasion. The graininess and the archival feel tends only to heighten this. Gets my vote and would get more than one if I could give it.

Weekly Wash...

Weekly Wash... by Graflex

I love the fact that you have to look closely at this to fully appreciate its undoubted appeal. Was the young lady an acquaintance or was it just being in the right place at the right time to capture that 'decisive moment'?
Love the pic. Gets my vote.

Emma/Portrait

Emma/Portrait by Graflex

The wonderful pose, the great expression, the lovely lighting, the sexual undertones, all of these things captivate the viewer in this charming portrait. Why are we discussing fingernails? I have never heard such nonsense. Wish I could clone out that ridiculous comment!
A lovely portrait, and it gets my vote

Sunny day in Trafalgar

Sunny day in Trafalgar by gossyboy

Are you improving, you ask. Well, having looked through your portfolio the answer is a definite yes. You are developing a good eye for an unusual angle on a subject and seeing details within a scene to focus in on, rather than going for the obvious. Keep up the good work.
Don't be disheartened either that your pix do not get a high number of votes. Mine don't either. It strikes me, and this is a purely personal view, that many of the best pix get very few votes. It means nothing.
But, for what it is worth, this one gets mine.

Reflections, Hamar Water

Reflections, Hamar Water by ginluvva

Excellent reflection. Very atmospheric shot. Beautiful natural colours. Will not impress those who love to exaggerate colours in Photoshop, but I prefer things as they are. Gets my vote anyway

Jay B

Jay B by VicBarnes

A gorgeous portrait, Vic. Sexy, moody, alluring, great pose,beautifully lit. Ticks all the boxes for me. B&W perfect too. Colour would have been a distraction. Deserves a vote.

That's a Knife..

That's a Knife.. by Graflex

Great shot. Nice to see a bit of creative portraiture. One might even say it is cutting edge! Gets my vote.

Waterfall

Waterfall by rpba18205

Nice shot, and I am pleased you did not do what many others do and take it on a tripod with a long exposure, which renders the water like cotton wool. I like waterfalls with water that looks like it is moving, so well done for that. Gets my vote.

Flying Scotsman

Flying Scotsman by Graflex

A rate treat to see iot in action. I have looked at it in the York museum several times thinking how sad it is that it is languishing there. Let's hope it is back to its former glory soon. I recognise Victoria Station Platform 2 well enough, I was there myself just before Christmas photographing Tornado. I too was plagued by a crowd of enthusiasts getting in my way. Great pic, though, and worth the vote.

Fishing Lines

Fishing Lines by ICY_IMAGES

Great composition with the lines of pots and the boardwalk leading you into the picture. I love the way the tangled lines of the pots mimic the tangled lines of rigging on the ship. It all works very well. Gets my vote for sure.

Lanterns

Lanterns by katie_r

Lovely abstract composition. Nice shapes. It works very well. Well done for seeing the shot. Abstracts are not easy and they don't all pay off -- so keep on looking. Gets my vote.

Jo Shelton

Jo Shelton by Graflex

Love the use of the mirror. You always manage to do something a little different rather than fall into the usual cliches. Love it.

The Shelton's.

The Shelton's. by Graflex

A slice of history. I always enjoy a look through your portfolio. You have such a talent for both grab shots and posed shots, and whichever they are, you seem to get the most out of your subject. Keep 'em coming! Gets my vote.

Traffic Control

Traffic Control by qosmio

I love street photography and you have an eye for intereasting compositions. I like this style of photography myself but sadly it never seems to get as many votes as kingfishers and puffball mushrooms. Don't let it get you down!
A small suggestion, how about a tighter crop cutting out some of the building at the top and the road in the forground. The policeman giving the photographer/observer a stern stare is such a strong element it might work better as more a cinemascope crop, if you know what I mean. Like it anyway and it certainly gets my vote.

Glamour Puss

Glamour Puss by VicBarnes

What a daring crop. In so tight on the left but what a good decision. That sweep of her hair on the right is excellent. The expression is just right and gives the shot an air of mystery where a nicely smiley face would have been too boring.
Great camera that Pentax MX. Have one myself. And what a treat to enjoy B&W shot on film. Gets my vote!

Old Memories

Old Memories by Chris_Harwood

Use of black and white suits the subject well and the look of delight on the old man makes the shot. Well done to wait for him to walk into the picture rather than trying to keep people out of your pix. People often make a picture and add that extra dimension of interest that turns a boring shot into an interesting one.
Gets my vote, anyway.
