A quick view of dudler's recent activity.

  • Umbrella times @ sea - set of 5

    Elegance on the beach...

  • Rift Valley

    You've nailed the tones in this beautifully. It would be interesting to see the colour version as well - or is it relatively bland and unvaried?

    The horizon is rather central - my choice would be to crop at the bottom, because the sky's more interesting than the greenery at the bottom.

    I think this could be sharper: as the aperture and shutter speed are sound, I wonder if it's simply that superzooms are a design compromise.

  • It is in the eye of the beholder

    Good use of the graffiti...

    I'd suggest, additionally, raising the ISO and shutter speed, and also stopping down the lens - the latter will give more front-to-back sharpness.

    Having plenty of light helps: and a focus rail so that you can adjust focus by moving the camera rather than twiddling with the lens is sensible, too. It's worth seeing how paulbroad tools up for this sort of work : he really knows what he's doing, and has spent the money on the gear it needs... Click on the link to see his gear.

  • Contre Jour

    A very old-fashioned result, in a very good way indeed.

  • Light goes out for incandescent bulbs

    Horses for courses...

    It's over 30 years since I started using the more expensive fluorescent lamps instead of incandescent lamps in most of the fittings in my house. Now, there's a mix of LEDs, halogen lamps and just a few incandescent bulbs, and I'm very pleased with the results. The latest LEDs are (literally) brilliant, and so far they're proving very reliable.

    We don't get all rosy-tinted about leaded petrol, or having to use a starting handle to get cars going - or even about copper plug leads (rather than the higher-performing but more fragile carbon leads), or points instead of electronic ignition, or oil lamps and candles in every house.

    Beautiful, yes, in a way. But how I want to light my house? Not any more...

  • 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.
