What a stunning image - not sure what the brief was (just a portrait?) but this is lovely. Just a niggling observation the portrait has a beautiful 'old world' charm - the lattice leaded windows and the girls dress and her look, all add to this - but her finger nails are too modern (I think)!!
Yes I agree with Salopian - there is a softness to the image that isn't really helpful. I think the overall composition can be helped by cropping using the lovely meandering fencing that echo's the coastline in the distance as your lead in - this makes the image much stronger visually (it leads the eye through the landscape).
Umm - for me this is great narrative there is a story here and quite a scary one I would wager - the benevolent smile on the rolly toy hides an awful secret - and just what is the frieze all about?
Well cool - such an amazing sense of menance and the bg looks just as if there is some massive fire burning away - the two main faces look extremely anxious which is wonderful and really adds to the menace - the title tees up the image nicely and really starts the story telling process before the image is even seen.
An excellent macro - personally I don't mind the hints of flora around the bottom of the frame - it provides a context and prevents the image becoming too much of a library shot. Stunning detail with good sharpness across the subject (it may get a little soft lhs but not a real problem).
What a very cool shot - the lighting is spot just enough to pick out the spider detail. Like the slightly threatening but featureless bg which serves to really set the subject up.

I am not going to click on your individual images (you get so many anyway!!) but I have just been looking at your PF first time for ages -and I really think you have developed as a landscape photographer it is really quite impressive. Don't get me wrong the other stuff is good but your work on landscapes is for me really getting there.
Its done my heart good to refresh it with some of fantastic images - life affirming stuff - keep it up.

This is a very thoughtful and really rather beautiful PF - OK John so you are a Canon fan but you can't get everything right!!!.
This is an beautiful and honest PF and I like it very much indeed - good work.

I haven't called in to see your PF for awhile - there are some really super shots here - colourful and great variety (and no signs of your sponsor anywhere - bit disapointed about that). I have really enjoyed have a look - so thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful PF - some real crackers here - lovely images all.

Fantastic disctinctive feel to your photography - which I think is the hardest thing to acheive and you do it superbly.
A quite wonderful pf

I have been missing your stuff for a couple of weeks so thought I would drop by - I have never commented on you pf - so I thought I would make ammends by doing so - especially after your last Sun series which were especially beautiful - still very much your style but particularly engaging.
You do indeed have some wonderful and truly impressive images in your pf - a joy to view.
Added Date: 12/08/2008 - 10:49 PM
Wow your pf is enchanting and beautiful - It has been a pleasure dropping by and I look forward to seeing more.

Sucha glorious and sensitive feel for the landscape but when you do go 'off piste' it is still bloody impressive. An enchanting and really impressive pf.
Added Date: 09/05/2008 - 10:25 PM
What very beautiful photographs - they really are consistenly of the highest quality - such an impressive pf.
Added Date: 09/05/2008 - 10:16 PM
Thank you so much for drawing my attention to your work - these images are really very lovely indeed and I think you must be a fellow traveller.
Meticulous landscapes and superb appreciation of natural history - such a good eye. I have resisted clicking individual images because all your work is imo superb. I am so glad I called by.

There are indeed some beautiful images here
Added Date: 07/05/2008 - 11:56 AM
I am so glad I took a peek at your pf (I hope you don't mind) some might impressive and inspirational shots here ...
Added Date: 07/05/2008 - 11:18 AM
I agree some of these HDR shots are superb - so glad I took a look

Chris - I think perhaps you do yourself a bit of a diservice - this is a really interesting PF good variety and well executed. There are some excellent shots here that don't appear to get the notice they deserve (votes are just not a guide believe me). There are others that do bear the hallmark of someone coming to terms with the technology (I am more than happy to be a member of this club). Well done and keep going.

Thank you so much for all your comments - I am not sure I really deserve any of them but very much appreciated.
