Terrific series. Interesting to see both colour and black and white versions of some. Nice to see an emotional connection between the photographer and the subject rather than a stolen shot, or the subject presented as some sort of strange thing the photographer 'found'. Really nice.
I like the mood but my eye isn't held in by anything at the top. Maybe a vignette, if that isn't too obvious. ( maybe a black background, but that may not be possible for a non member ) The tree in the middle is so definite as an artistic decision that you must really want it there. It doesn't bother me as I like the way it divides the frame. Daft, I know, but it might be a more direct statement without the swans. The picture isn't about them particularly. Hmm, that may be rubbish, dunno. I get the impression you know what you are after so don't be put off by lack of votes etc.

Great portfolio, and it's fascinating to read your biog. Congratulations on the nat Geographic thing! That's quite an achievment. cheers, Jon

Thanks for your comment on my Pyramid pic.
I admire your work. Dreamlike. Though, that said, not like my dreams. . . mine are surreal and mundane at the same time. Your images are like dreams are supposed to be
In my stuff, for what it's worth, I am trying to notice when my eye is telling me something and to 'listen' to it, if that makes sense. Early days yet though.

Nice PF. I shall stick you in my faves once I get round to actually joining this place You make me realise i am getting hung up on trying too hard to master the technical side of things at the expense of the creative. ( but I've only had me d80 for about a month so I have a hill to cimb techically wise ) Keep it up. That pic of your neice really takes me back to when my two kids were tiny. thanks for that.

I always think that portraits by someone who likes people are so much better than the ones that objectify and try to use the subject to comment about poverty etc without involving their humanity and personality. You have a 'good heart' I think and it comes accross in what you do.

Cracking stuff. You obviously like people generally. There is an affectionate amusement in your observations. Not the 'Humanity as freak show' vibe that some go for. Really nice work. How did your final show at Art College go? Keep it up mate. Jon

Nice portfolio. I followed the link from the comment as i fugured it's as good a way as any to find interesting work. I really like what you are doing. Cheers, Jon

Thanks for the nice comment on my gate pic. As a newbie here I thought I'd check out your portfolio. very impressed. Lots of pro looking shots. I think us graphics pros have a better developed eye than other beginners in photography perhaps, ( and the Pshop skills help ) but in my case the technical stuff lets me down every time. Just won a D80 18-70 on ebay so I shall take pains to live up to it
Thanks again and keep up the good work.
