A quick view of dudler's recent activity.

  • Braunstone Park, Leicester

    The master of panoramic shots is Colin Prior. His website is worth visiting, though there's less emphasis on the film-based Scottish panoramas that made his reputation.

    The essence of a good picture is that there's a way to read the image, a way round the frame for the eye, a story. Normally, three elements will be enough, in a conventional frame.

    In a panorama, there need to be digressions and excursions, sub-plots and interludes, like a 24-episode TV series. The eye needs to be able to travel through a succession of interesting points in the frame - birds in the sky, trees nearby, a walker with her dog, a couple of joggers, a boat on the lake, clouds in part of hte sky, and they all need to work together. A big ask, I know - but there is as much to master in the aesthetics as in the technical side of making a panoramic shot. And, very often, concentrating on a difficult and demanding technique draws attention away from subject matter.

    I've got nothing to add to Willie's comments - he goes into the detail of why htis seems grey and rather soft-toned.

    Beautiful and rather otherworldly.

    It's been a while, hasn't it, Jude?

    Nice to see you posting.

    Amazing... I would look for the join, but a fisheye shot would be terribly hard to fake, wouldn't it?

    'I think the cafe was in Wales' - not too much help in tracking the lady down for an extended shoot, I'd say!

    If we all ask nicely, can you tell us the context?

    I'd be tempted to crop the lead image to square, taking away from the right of the frame.

    Outstandingly good: an opportunity well seen and well used.

    I am entirely happy with the lead as symbolic of hte whole headlong rush.

    I wonder if HC-B would have used a motor drive? I suspect not.

  • Mile - your street pictures represent a consistent high point in my visits to EPZ. I hope that you are printing, displaying and archiving these - a real social document that hits hard and deserves to be put in print.
  • You haven't been a member for long, Laura, but you already seem to be someone to watch carefully - a series of thoughtful and beautiful pictures.

    I hope that you will be able to post pictures daily for a very long time to come. And I will enjoy every single one of them.
  • I keep finding pictures in yoru portfolio that make me insanely jealous... We live in the same world, but you see it far better than I do!

    Some of the very best, the most creative, the most emotionally engaging work on the site.
  • Simply, the most consistently brilliant and perceptive portfolio on Ephotozine.

    There are many good photographers on here. Some outstanding ones. But over the last few months, you've consistently posted work that is, in some sense, utterly alien, as well as being totally human.

    No pressure, truly. If you decided to stick to unprocessed pictures of used car dealers for the rest of your life, you have produced better work than I ever will: I suspect I speak for a lot of other members in saying this.

  • Some lovely observations here - and all seen through a finely-tuned eye!
  • Marian -

    You have a rare talent, infusing every picture with emotion and resonance. You see the relationships between things and people, between thoughts and emotions, and yo ushare them through your pictures.

    Thank you.

  • A portfolio that never disappoints. A long series of lovely views, beautifully shot.
  • I love Rhodes, and particularly Lindos.

    This portfolio reminds me why I want to go back there for another holiday - the warm sun, the ancient buildings, the friendly people and the lovely food and wine...

    George - you're so lucky to live there - and I am so glad you share the view!
  • Careful, hard-working and methodical. Beautiful and thoughtful results.

  • They say artists transform suffering into beauty.

    You are a true artist.
