    Very nice capture. The foreground statue's face's expression is just discernible, which is just right.

  • the eye

    Hi Robert,
    The look I meant was the one directed towards the camera or me. This was a shot taken almost at random, trying to catch passers by as I was walking along, sometimes from hip level, William Klien stylee, sometimes not. So it was a happy accident, but one I pressed the shutter at the right time to catch Wink.
    It's that flicker of a look we give each other when sizing each other up, or at least it looks enough like that to me. That was my take on it anyway.
    Thanks Shaks, glad you like it, and thanks image 123

  • 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 Wink
    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. Wink Early days yet though.
    best,
    Jon

  • Nice PF. I shall stick you in my faves once I get round to actually joining this place Wink 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.
    Jon
  • 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
  • Just following some links from others i like and found your PF. Nice stuff. I like the way your mind works. cheers, Jon
  • Hi Paul,
    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 Wink
    Thanks again and keep up the good work.
