  • The Lady on the Steps.

    Neat photo, unusual subject, unusual to me anyway, interesting.

  • Street in Cajarc France.

    looks sort of old but timeless. nice exposure.

    a striking composition with the yellow coats

  • Let there be light.

    a nice composition, contrasting the cross with the diamonds, and of course the light is just right

  • Lockdown

    I think the wriggly wall helps to make that work

  • White leopard

    Seems to me the nose and eyes are a bit soft and low contrast, probably through being not quite in focus. The left ear and the hairs on the top and back of the head are sharp, then it starts to fade again. The right ear looks a bit odd to me, almost as though oversharpened, it might be due to the change in colour around the edge.
    The bokeh is very nice, very smooth background, which is partly what you pay for in a good lens.

    So I think probably it is dof problem, compounded by the point of sharp focus being not in quite the right place.

    I wonder also if it would benefit from brightening up a touch in software.

    Can't believe this got votes Smile Thanks all.

  • A romantic stroll

    I quite like it.
    However the romantic stroll is a personal memory - its not in this photo.
    I see architecture, perhaps history, interesting squares and lines and a cute little flag. The foreground gives a sense of where it might be.
    Its interesting, and nice light, but not attention grabbing.

    Unfortunately perhaps, ephotozine does tend to go for photos that give an eye catching thumbnail.

  • Lord Fergus

    the background is a bit messy, but its truly a majestic portrait.
    clicking!

  • BLACKMOUNT RANNOCH MOOR

    I like the composition and colours in this one. Its a much more absorbing and competent work than the usual imgaes from that area.

  • Air Door Gunner

    Looks like a good composition, but unfortunately is too dark to see properly

    Unconventional - like it

  • Far Away

    thats good - and its different - versatility Smile

    but its got a wonky horizon tut tut Sad

    P.S. actually its kind of cute - sense of wonderment - and lots of space

    Contrast between dark rough textured background and light feminine subject very good.
    Pose and composition very good.
    Mono good choice for this.
    Very appealing.

  • I Dare to Sleep

    Very moody, lighting and colour work well, I suspect the make up and style are working with it.
    Don't know what sort of mood.
    Not sure if I want to be there when she wakes up.

    make your own story ?

    The Road goes ever on and on
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can,
    Pursuing it with eager feet,
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say.

    All interesting and helpful comments there - thanks

  • In the Chapel

    Rog, you can get guided tours of the barracks, quite an extensive historical area. You have to go as a party, organized well in advance, when its convenient for the MOD, and all positively vetted. There was a lot more to see than I expected, and a lot more walking.
    I did have some slight connection at one time, but thats all history now. This visit happened because someone at work wanted to go, and she had to get a party together in order to do it.

  • Slate Mountain 2

    Interesting subject. B&W brings across the texture and the boiling sky.

  • The Collection Grows....

    Intriguing collection, good choice of colours, good arrangement, not sure about the background colour. The shadow on the bottom right shouldn't be there, I know its not easy though, I get that problem.

  • The Underground

    I shudder. It has the feel of the London Underground, which is both good and bad. A well chosen view and good treatment. A very clean cut strong image.

  • Slow Fly Past

    Thanks.
    Thought it might raise a smile on a bad air show day.

  • Chocolate Box

    Its not a chocolate box cover, unless its a souvenir box from the gift shop. Its more a postcard or glossy magazine article.
    It looks off balance, right side heavy, but the big blue blank at top left is just begging for a caption to fill it up and balance out the image.

  • bluebell wood 2

    one of the more interesting bluebell photos, with its own magic aura

    (the trees are ok imho)

  • Little Softie

    thanks for the nice comments.
    thing is, I wasn't too sure about going out to look for a special pinhole subject, so I just did what I usually do on an overcast day, and brought a small flower in from the garden. did a small batch of images with the pinhole just like trying out another lens.
    I suppose its sticking with what you know.
    (uh oh - one trick pony!)
    Of course, it is an expensive digital pinhole camera.

  • What's that over there ?

    anthropomorphically speaking, there's character and appeal in this which is lacking in the straight on owl pictures. possibly the sharpest focus may be in the wrong place, but its still very good and appealing.
