A quick view of Canonshots's recent activity.

  • Sunset over Tallinn

    I remember the first time I visited Tallin I was expecting a rather dismal, run-down, typically ex-communist city. How wrong I was! It was the big surprise of my first baltic cruise and it remains my favourite Baltic capital to this day. I think your shot sums it up admirably.

  • Crummock Water

    Somewhere I have an image rather similar to this that I took during a cycling trip around 1965. At lunchtime I had bumped into the warden of Cockermouth Youth Hostel, where I was booked to stay the night, and told him my plans for the afternoon. I got to the head of Buttermere, looked back and saw a wall of rain coming towards me. I just had to ride through it, and arrived at Cockermouth drenched. The warden was quite surprised. Cockermouth had not seen a drop of rain all day.,

    A fine sequence of images, helped no end by the low viewpoint.

    The colour scheme is what makes this image for me.

  • Just taken a quick look as I'm pushed for time right now, but I intend to be back soon to enjoy these splendid images as they should be enjoyed - at leisure!
  • I see you desctibe yourself as a beginner. Some beginner! I have seen experienced photographers produce stuff not half as good as some of these imsges. You hsve a real talent - keep cultivating it.

  • As a Nottingham resident I find your portfolio very enjoyable. Keep up the good work.

    Like you, I have been into photography for a long time. For years I was a diehard Exakta fsn but I am 100% digital now. It is not the equipment that makes the image, it is the photographer, as your imsges illustrate very well.
  • Barbara, I enjoy your portfolio no end. Do try and keep it up as much as you can even though your new job will be making demands on your time. Best of luck.
  • For a self-proclaimed newbie your standard is remarkable. Keep up the good work!
  • A splendid and varied portfolio. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your kind comments on my stuff.

  • A nice varied portfolio, I have enjoyed looking at it.
  • This is a very impressive PF indeed. I just wish I could produce landscapes like this, with wonderful vibrant colours and a real sense of openness and distance.

    My only caveat concerns the water in some of the shots. Some people like to see running water looking like cotton wool. I am not one of them. I like to see water looking like water, and conveying the frantic sense of movement that is so characteristic of a waterfall. This kind of rendering just looks lifeless.

    But I still like the PF and I intend to learn as much as I can from studying it. Great stuff!
