A quick view of dudler's recent activity.

  • Still, my hope is all before me: for I cannot play it yet

    No music, as I recall, Barbara. The whole group were younger and better-looking thank most...

  • Fly O'Clock

    The only possible suggestion is some sort of a square crop - either taking up the symmetry of the 'clock', or using a square frame asymmetrically. I've tried the latter.

    Really excellent work.

  • Smokin' Gun

    Stylistically, this works far better than the Guinness: fedoras and guns go together in my mind pretty well.

    Two suggestions.

    First, all of the objects in the frame need to be sharp, I think: and hte gun isn't - because you shot at f/4.5 - still fairly wide open. I'd suggest stopping down further, to f/8 or f/11, and focussing carefully on the nearer side of the hat, or the chamber of the gun.

    And second, the logo really competes with the image: it's dead sharp, beautiful, and quite large. And it's not much of a security device - my mod erased it, very crudely, in a minute. Someone intent on stealing hte image would take longer, or crop viciously.

    And welcome from me, too, Brian.

    I have absolutely nothing to add to waht Willie and Moira have said - particularly Moira's very detailed run-down on the adjustments she made.

    It looks the sort of place one should revisit several times, at all sorts of different times of day...

  • A Needy Look!

    I can live with the softness, for the content...

    Good work: maybe a crop above the belt, making it square?

    Are the greens really that bright? Thsi is a very serious question: I really want to know!

    There is a slight tilt to this - I've corrected in, and cropped a bit. And i reduce the saturation and contrast: these are slightly eye-watering, and I wanted to get them to match the calm of the picture.

    That's why I want to know about the greens - I've never been in the tropics, so my idea of 'green' leaves is dusty and faded!

  • I still can't see anything!

    And when he does, I bet it smells a funny sound...

  • 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.

  • Some lovely, old-fashioned reportage here. Zappy colour and a lack of time and thought are popular these days: this is a wonderful antidote - especially from a young tog!
