    pleasant scene, good composition from a good viewpoint, sense of order and tranquility, artifice balanced with nature

  • PURE MAGIC

    its photography - but not as we know it - made me laugh

  • sleeping stone by water edge

    intriguing

  • Man and Nature

    excellent study of human form in nature, and surprisingly good use of light and shadow in a lighting situation that could easily be a castatrophe

  • Raid over the green

    oh wow!

  • Freshwater Steps

    very striking and strong piece of work, with excellent composition

    gobsmacked. on close inspection I'm sure i see some joins, it makes a great compposition though.

  • Summer perfume

    soft and pleasant composition, a touch dull to me, but deserves more than 5

    I don't like the white fluff on his head, but the use of short depth is brill and with the location makes a powerful photo.

    (and it was only 10 when i got here Smile)

  • Beaumaris Pier

    Its not poo, so I can't tell you why it is.
    What I'm getting is the pleasing geometry of the pier, and the human aspect of people on it.
    The object right of centre, probably the boat referred to above, does detract from the clean lines of the pier, as do the dangling cables in the same area.
    Also, viewed large on my monitor, its not very sharp, probably because of the fog.
    Definitely worth taking, as there's a good picture in there, spoiled by circumstance, and I think taking, and studying later, adds something to your personal knowledge, so you see more next time.
    Whether it worth the work of removing the boat and trying USM, depends how badly you want to get the potential out of it.

    Good composition, especially this angle on the wiggly river and the notch in distant hills.
    A bit dull on this monitor, and some vignetting I think.
    Its a bit quiet and soulful. If not downright bleak and lonely. I quite like it, but not sure if it'll be a mainstream attraction. Time will tell.
    (B/W sometimes is the best choice)

  • The Surgeon

    unusual and interesting work. I think the background actually lends something to the stark terror of sharp instruments. The foreground is clear and separated from the background, which counts for a lot.

  • Ice Fishing 1

    intereesting subject and fine composition

  • Seaweed

    I like the picture and the idea.
    Probably would also have placed the seaweed lower in the frame. Might have experimented with moving things round, don't know if that was done. Theres a lot of good material there.
    I'm not sure colour is so important, and it is of course difficult to do colour with Ilford film! Or if you have to do your own developing.
    Adjusting contrast on the computer might help, as its true the seaweed doesn't show up quite well enough.
    Its possible some work on the scanning and prepping for upload might improve sharpness and clarity as well.
    I should say again that I do like it.

  • what to do?

    the composition and the contrast between the figure and the background are really good

  • Cityscape #2

    its an eyecatcher, but when I view large I find it too busy - that is, the colours are too bright and contrasty for my taste

  • Riding the waves

    neat. wild and open, that tiny figure and high splash of colour, and a sky - puts things in perspective - compositio+colour+light, very good

    like the pale glow. aethereal.

  • stream

    interesting effect, the speed is right for the light and composition, gives an otherworldly feel

    thanks folks

  • skyline

    I don't like cities and have seen too many pictures like this.
    HOWEVER I haven't seen this view, and the composition is excellent. There is a hint of glimpsing wonderland as we look between the two big buildings, led in across the water by the two bright globes at the edge.
    Certainly more than competent.
    Wish you had E2 so we could 'view larger image'.
    I'm not a great gear freak, but it would be nice to see what lens was used.

  • God's Playground

    on my monitor the lower half is very dark - there seems to be rolling downs, a valley, a farm, but hardly visible.
    The distant sunlit area is very pretty and appears very detailed, but is only a small part of the image. If only the foreground were lit, albeit softly, what a huge difference that would be.
    The viewpoint. almost under cloudbase, feels like flying.

  • Bad Habit....

    horrible dissgusting unnattractive picture - and thats probably what you wanted!
    unusually I feel it is better not viewed large, it is rather too much to take in that close up, and doesn't benefit from a close scrutiny of detail.
    I don't think the company would pay for this one! But its good.

  • At the top of Fayence II

    kind of off balance. didn't like the thumbnail but the large version is interesting, uneasy and expectant - where is everyone ? who sits in the chair ? where's the staircase go ? I don't feel its an easy comfortable thing to gaze at but it has something.

  • Lancashire Mill

    The thumbnail is dark and unappealing. On opening up and epecially the larger version, its an excellent subject, good vantage point, finely detailed and marvellous reflection.
    However those large shadow areas are still glooming there - probably not intentionally dark and satanic ? - The sunlit areas are good, but I think the suns from the wrong angle, or maybe the light is too harsh.

  • Bang Bang

    So its in the wrong category then ?

  • Smooth Surprise

    Thank you for those very quick responses.
    So good to have confirmation it isn't just a personal opinon - the old lens really does work. On a digital camera!
