  • Butterfly & Blu-tack

    I love it as it is... rather an innovative approach to the other commercial explorations of the theme.

    Thank you very much for the comment, Moira... I hadn't seen rontear's upload, thanks for sharing that... And thank you for the underlying encouragement regarding the crop choice Smile

  • an other cymbal player

    this shot is the story of a lifetime in itself. greatly spotted and captured.

  • je sais pourquoi

    great feeling, made me unable to find the right words for accompanying the vote.

  • Personal demons 3

    the tragic, the grotesque, the sublime...hard for me to decide. Great exploration of the theme...

  • Pearlescent

    great composition, game of curves and colors. it makes my brain tickle when i let myself dragged into it. Smile

  • flavour of spring

    a delicious shot, I'd say Smile love it.

  • dark, mysterious corner

    love the way how this image plays with the viewer's eye, perfectly composed and thought of.

  • Workstation - St Germain des prés

    lovely candid shots, especially with all the elements in the background. It's funny how mono changed the way I feel about photographs where there are loads of technical stuff like the netbook, headphones, etc... Before seeing this, I really hated the immersion of electronics in photos which were meant to create a mood / atmosphere which was not commercial.

  • Light Shadow

    lovely atmosphere, the mono is a great choice too!
    • 10 May 2011 1:43PM
  • The grab, the girders & Warren's black eye

    the lensbaby were an excellent idea, the distortion adds so much dynamism to the shots. an inspired choice, as well as the mono.

  • Solitary

    well done. the title most of all made me give a wholehearted click.
    • 9 May 2011 4:23PM
  • asylum

    good diagonals and tones, and most of all there's finally a story round here which tries to say something... like it, keep it up.
    • 9 May 2011 4:21PM
  • Vividness

    I like the lighting and the tones, not too sure about the lens flare, they seem a little artificial, I would have absolutely liked them if they had been blurry Smile but this way, my attention is totally drawn to them. worth a wholehearted click whatsoever.

  • sad sock

    two things i don't get: the different shoes and the reason for such explicit nude in this picture. I find that less explicit nude and bare feet would have conveyed an idea, but this way it's hard to make out the sense.
    • 7 May 2011 8:32PM
  • My Father

    I like this shot a lot. I went for an even more daring crop and increased the shadows channel just a bit. Perhaps just a matter of personal taste (both the crop and the exposure adjustment), but I felt it made it all a bit stronger. Great portrait.
    • 6 May 2011 10:49PM
  • Afternoon_Break_

    i like the pov a lot, but I think a color version would work even better Smile

  • River Yamuna, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, India - 03/11

    lovely. the overexposure works simply great and the reflections made me bookmark this. a picture i would look at for ages.

  • relationship

    It seemed very Japanese to me in the thumbnail, and thinking about the meaning of 'relationship' I realized I really like this picture a lot...
    • 6 May 2011 10:32PM
  • Hot Dog

    now that's one good shot Smile I love it, and most of all I like the 'competence' label on it!

  • lunar moon

    lunar moon? never heard of that... in romance languages 'lunar' means 'referring to the moon'...
    • 6 May 2011 10:29PM
  • Moon, that is all.

    a refreshing mouthful of air and silence, especially due to the title. Thank you for that.
    • 6 May 2011 10:24PM
  • bad fingers

    intriguing, and I like the motion blur effect. it's nice to see something out of the ordinary in the gallery.
    • 6 May 2011 10:22PM
  • the memory of that sun setting will live on

    I like the way the reflections and the title match; otherwise, it looked quite 'bloody' to me...
    • 6 May 2011 10:19PM
  • Wheel

    no votes yet, as far as I see... well, I do like it Smile
    • 6 May 2011 10:17PM
  • Just a Drop

    I love the composition in this one, but I wonder of the purple flower buds aren't a bit distracting... perhaps just a personal opinion though; apart from that, great colors and atmosphere!

  • To the Church

    I agree about the straightening, and that made me think that the whole 'verticality' problem seems to be caused by lens distortion; I tend to believe this can be exploited even further; the curves are already winding and all in all I really love the way everything gets confusing with the tower leaning towards the right and the wall towards the left Smile for my taste, it would work even better if they were leaning even further apart. So from this point of view, I ended up loving the distortion.
    However, I wonder if the contrast isn't a bit too high. (High contrast works great for b/w shots but it's so difficult to master properly...Sad)

  • Rôle reversal

    true, it must be all about the changes these days... Smile lovely composition and colors and a well spotted scene, love it.

  • wild boar

    Although I'm a passionate fan of Astérix too, I have never tasted a "sanglier", they are pretty rare (as meals, I mean) for one who is not a hunter. (Actually, I am a sort of hunter, bu only from behind the camera Smile ...)
    Moira, I definitely understand how your daughter felt, I wish I could repeat this experience, if only I were braver Smile

    Thank you both very much for dropping by!
