    Quote:Weirdly wonderful
    if not bloody blasphemous. Little wonder it's been painted over. I see resemblance to Rennaisance paintings especially in the mother figure hand and the infant's body and Catholic Icon artwork but the mere resemblance to the Holy persons is quite revolting if not insulting. If this was painted to glorify the phone, a good tribute would to have been shot by a phone. And may be stay there?

    The film was fresh. I am puzzled myself why the effect has happened. The film was developed and scanned by a lab. Albeit professionals, I think these people are not true photography lovers. Having checked the negative of the couple picture I had shot, I've found that the negative includes all of the man's fingers which are cropped in the scan. I do not remember if the very next frame has any patch of dark area, but I know for sure that the lab blamed their machine for cutting automatically the previous film I had taken for development and chopped 4 perfect frames by a third in their length after the scanning process. They gave me a film for free and did not charge me for their "service' but I am really scared to give them any more films to develop.

    This reminded me of India actually. I failed to notice the purple item was a polo shirt. The paprika coloured sheet made it look sooooo exotic, haha.

  • chiaroscuro #2

    I know what's chiaroscuro, isn't this opium bulb?
    I would crop a bit from the top...

  • No profit yet

    It's bad to see older people suffering misery. Very strong portrait indeed.
    I am very much inclined to suggest a square frame with her and just the suitcase of the other person in the frame. I find the lines in his jacket annoying, crazy as that sounds Blush

    have you tried this in black and white? The golden lampshade does not go well with the pink on the walls...If you prefer to stay with colour I'd turn the colour of the wallparer to green, Green and gold match better.
    I may be mistaken but you can rotate it 1 degree to the left so the top of the lampshade appears to be totally horizontal.
    It gets my vote though.

    Quote:blue and white uniform: the blonde lady is showing a good bit of cleavage...

    You have an eye for detail John..... I had not noticed it till you've mentioned it
    Why the spare hand on the left wasn't mentioned until now just amazes me, lol

  • High Tide

    Welcome aboard Peter.
    Strong colours indeed.
    I would crop a bit tighter on the top of the frame so as the background is just the sea and not some other boats or the harbour on the top left corner.

  • On the wing and a prayer

    Good idea, good execution.
    It makes you forget that with a sky as cloudy as that you'd be lucky to have so much light to make these strong shadows...
    To my humble opinion it needs some props to gain some extra edge.
    Is she Britannia? I'd give her a spear...
    Is she Gloria? I'd give her a laurel to crown the pilot...

  • Eleven and 11 and a half

    At last!
    Someone did the metric conversion there.
    That's 20 pints of beer into litres. Roughly, lol.

    Nice perspective

  • Light and Shade

    My mod has come out of the decision to stay in the sphere of the yellow, fine-tuning sunshine, shadow, shapes and the flower in a frame that focuses not on the plant and the background but to the plant only.
    I have checked the metadata, I think a fixed(?) f/2, 30mm can't give you a f/5.6, 45mm setting, unless...
    Wait a minute...
    you could detach the lens from the camera body and turned it front to back to shoot it as macro...
    It could have worked cause I think you'd need to get deeper and closer...
    A folding umbrella or a hat could prove handy too.

  • The heat of your desire may be the only light in your life

    Proving the other side of the fence is green? This struck me as a colour image. Then I am hearing things: one deep moody voice says "Convert me to mono" and a shy quite voice says "please sir, let me stay evergreen, do everything else black and white but me". Just passing you the message John.

    Nobody stole summer from Scotland. It is bright, sunny and pleasane as always. Only, above the clouds.

  • window with jug

    To my knowledge jars were left on the sill of the windows to keep the amount of water held in them refreshingly cool.
    I think it would need a 3 degrees rotation to the left for the vertical wooden part in the glass to look truly vertical.
    Not that this subtracts any of the charm that the picture has,

  • Over the wall

    It's accurate, it's sharp, it's real.

    I believe you. I have seen waters with colours like these.

    A boat or a swimmer would make it more interesting though.

    I cannot think of her in colour now, lol
    Have you tried a mono?

  • Defiance is the space between acquiescence and anger

    Cold light and cold look brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
    I am not sure if I feel lucky because she doesn't look me straight in the eye: ''-what are you doing here?''
    ''-who me? I'm just playing with the colours''.
    I cropped the cold light source and I went for something rather different... a steamy version of it.
    Less contrast, slightly more exposure but lots of tint and warmth mixed with far less clarity and vignetting.
    Sultry tribute to the Eighties.

    Hi Paul.
    Amazing clarity and performance despite the high ISO.
    I did a mod to exaggerate your compliment about of his age.
    He seems he can do that racing single-handedly,

  • Just Married?

    Hi, thanks for the opportunity to offer us a mod on it. You know the whole story since you were there and your original has all the elements that can pin them on the world map using the tram destination. I was tempted to leave the destination in the frame but I thought should I had allowed this the frame would have looked very long and strange. My crop was dictated by producing a clean picture with no-one else that the couple, so I cropped tightly on the right to avoid the passer by on the right of the woman in the background and to include the total height of the building and a bit of sky which are reflected on the tram front glass surface. In a way this is ''essence'' of the picture, just the couple and a bit of background Smile Lovely picture, bravo.
