A quick view of apierzchala's recent activity.

  • Archway, St. Ursanne

    Blowing hot and cold again Mr B! I think that the dark edge along the "cold" arch is a wonderul detail and really serves to delineate it from the warm toned wall behind. Very nice indeed. Well worth ignoring those cyclists as they bob past you...Rgds., Adam

  • The Fishing hut

    I really like this but can't help thinking that it would be better still without those pesky crates by the door. They attract the eye too strongly for my liking. Adam

  • Poppy pano

    Here again I don't think the thumbnail does it justice and does nto show the finely structured composition. What with the soft light and limited DOF, please don't say this was just a snapshot! This could be my favourite of the three. Adam

  • Two cornflowers and two poppies...

    Indeed great colour treatment and highly unusual composotion: were the cornflowers pushed down or is the picture on its side and the poppies are in fact leaning over? This image has Beauty, Mystery, Simplicity. Oh wait, I've heard that before Smile Adam

    Goodness me I didn't recognise you. The thumbnail doesn't do this justice, nor indeed the others from the series now that I see them all. The soft light really compliments the subject, but I would have liked to see a cornflower in full bloom rather than just bud. I just wish I had nice meadows like this close by.... Adam

    Great pose, lighting and model. The b&w treatment works very well here. But oh that curtain on the right.... So distracting Smile Really, please do shoot again but keep it plain! If there is something ugly outside the window, then hide it with a net curtain. Rgds., Adam

    I agree with some of the above and frankly the mod you have done looks too obvious and contrived. For example the very dark patch underneath/behind the bright cloud in the centre. Reflections should be darker than the sky but that is not the case here and whatís more the colour saturation of the modified sky does not show in the lake. My approach is keep it natural.
    As to the photo itself, you could try shooting even later when the sun is lower and light pink/orange; ideally with clouds as you have here to add that spark. Get lower down so at to have only a smidgeon of foreground, about the same water as now and really make something of the sky: shoot vertical rather than horizontal format. The difficulty you have with this view is that there is nothing attractive in the distance for the eye to home in on. Another idea is to go abstract and go in close on ripples in the mud or sand banks on the left Ė if you can get there that is! This is by no means a disaster and does show that you are thinking about the subject. I agree with Nick, you are definitely on the right track. Rgds., Adam

  • Having been away for a while, I thought I should revisit - and it was worth the effort! Lots of good new images, I really must get back to commenting on the individual ones again. Well done, Rgds. Adam
  • Hello Carol,

    Firstly a big thank you for your kind comments on some of my efforts - much appreciated!. Having had a look at your portfolio, I would like to return the compliment - you have great shots, too many to name them all, but I particularly like Beach Groyne, Wood Anemone and Early Purple Show from the more recent ones. And I do like some of the rock abstractions too - you live in or near some great locations! Rgds., Adam
  • Hello David,

    Great to see your work reaching an even wider audience, itís high time that it got more exposure so to speak. Inspirational as ever. Rgds., Adam
