Hello John I am really impressed by the shots in your portfolio.
I could probably spend all day or all week going through each photograph and being equally as impressed. Your photos reveal a good eye for detail and a very close, meaningful connection with everything you photograph... Well done you John, I look forward to see more.

Super portfolio Oryx. Love that atmospheric " light beans" and "one their bikes". Contre jour lighting is difficult to handle but both show excellent technique. Well done my friend.

Thank you John for viewing my photos regularly and commenting on them, your feedback has always been encouraging and motivating.

Hello Oryx, So, Against light is your style, is'n it?
Actually, there are very few occasions when you got a good subject against lite, one needs eyes, mind and `train to brain' for finding it.
Also one need master in Exposure,
You have great set of it. I like Flamingos..........................Milinda

Wonderful PF John - have been taking time out to browse through your lovely work. I particularly admire your control of light in some of those exquisite nature shots, Evergreen and Light in the Trees to name but a couple. Many thanks for your great mod on my Riding the Thermals upload - it really makes the image pop Smile
