Sally B

Sally B by geofftheref

Sally B's a Boeing B17.

Afraid this isn't it.



Quote: The aircraft is a puzzle

First thing that I spotted.
That engine cowling doesn't belong to a Merlin and quite apart from, as John has implied, the turret being the wrong type, the proportions are all wrong for it to be a Lancaster.
I reckon it's a Bristol Blenheim.
Was this taken at Duxford by any chance?

I'll second that.

The use of mono really works well.

Edit trials 1 by JackAllTog

Hi Stuart,
To me, this is about as manipulated as I'd want it to get.
The highlights are quite strong and I'm not sure it works with the background being so dark by comparison.
I've just opened it using CS6 and backed off the contrast by a fair bit and although the difference isn't all that great, I think I prefer it.
I can see where you're going though.
Hope this helps.

The Golden Ratio.

I know it's all subjective and this guys a bit blunt but he does get the point across.

As for me, you all know my opinion of the so-called rules of composition.

As John says they're only guidelines at best. Whatever you do, please don't think that you have to follow them to the letter.

Sunset Serenade 2

Sunset Serenade 2 by paulbroad

I didn't realise that there was any colour in him at all until I opened it in CS6.
Once you can see his left hand it becomes less of an issue.
The cutting and pasting's well done although I think I'd have feathered the edge just a touch more.
The thing that looks wrong to me though, is that the sky fills the entire background; it's as if he's singing into the sky.
It needs something solid at the bottom.

Sunset Senenade.

Sunset Senenade. by paulbroad

Bridlington and Majorca; an obvious marriage!
On more serious note, it works for me.
The inclusion of the few details is, I think, a god idea.
The pure silhouette, although I've yet to see it, might be just a bit overpowering.

The Boss

The Boss by JackAllTog

Hi Stuart,

I've been watching your other, recent experiments; if that's the right word and I have to say that I've been quite impressed.

Likewise with this one, with the caveat that her face looks, to me, to be a rather strange colour.

A result of the latest processing, or was it that way originally, perhaps the way it's lit . . . ?

Either way, I'm taking inspiration from these. I have about 150 shots from a wedding that I shot last Saturday. I reckon there's a good few among them that could benefit from what you're doing.


Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge by xwang

I like this Jas and you've done well.
I took several shots, last summer, from the same spot but I found it quite tricky to get any shots that looked straight.
They all displayed distortion in one direction or other. You seem to have avoided that.
I might just crop a bit from the bottom though.

Somewhat random EXIF here.

Interesting that you've used a focal length of 102mm. here, you could have almost doubled that.

Any particular reason?

Hi Jas,
This is really good.
Had you thought of removing that access cover on the footpath and the drain cover?

What prompted you to stop shooting Stuart?

You've always been quite prolific on here.

Meschersmitt ME 109

Meschersmitt ME 109 by johnriley1uk

As far as technology is concerned the Bf. 109 (that's not an Me.), having been designed and originally built (as the Me.) in the 1930s, was a long way behind the Mosquito and it shows.

There's nothing like a war to promote progress in weapons design.

Nothing to add to what Willie's said except that you've got a few dust spots.

Hi Kathryn,
I don't comment on your stuff much these days, as there's no longer anything much for me to say. The occasional social call or email is much more pleasant.
Although, having just said that, you've got some outstanding images here, images to be proud of.
Well done.


Added Date: 11/02/2013 - 11:32 PM

Possibly Jack.

. . . early days.

I've just found your pf. John; there's some excellent work on display here.


Added Date: 09/04/2011 - 11:23 PM

Hi Steven,
I've just come here from your "Bandstand" upload and what I've found here is some excellent work.
Some of these shots are really first class. Likewise the contents of your website.
You obviously have an analytocal eye as much of your work includes exact symmetry and precise composition and positioning within the frame.
Not something that's essential necessarily but it certainly helps!
Well done.



Added Date: 19/08/2010 - 10:54 PM

What an incredible portfolio!
Absolutely brilliant work.



Added Date: 07/05/2010 - 10:16 PM

This is excellent work Tim.
You are to bee congratulated.

Hi Peter, Small World!
I've come to your portfolio after you uploaded a comment on one of my offerings (a squirrel with a crunchie!) and I've found myself looking at a collection of steam images, most of which I've studied and probably voted for in the galleries!
Great work.

'Lazy and unenhanced'.
I like the sound of that.
I find that manipulation can so easily become overdone.
Nicely varied portfolio you have here and good to see that Eliza's got the bug!
Hapy new Year,

What a great, fun portfolio!
Keep it up!
Best wishes,
