    M... does it stand for ''Measuring up''?

    Hello Dudler.
    I shall reveal my thoughts as they pour rather my opinion.
    I am getting confused a bit (but that can happen if you examine things too much)
    The place is bright enough and the room where you are is big I suppose, two windows at 90 degrees are not met in ordinary rooms of houses... or is this a workplace? Despite the light, the sitter is wearing a jacket, amid with an open zip, but isn't the place warm enough, when it's bright outside?
    The gesture is..... perplexing on itself. Because while it appears to be quite expressive, the face does have a distant serenity to it but not quite an involvement. The gesture neither explains or suggests something to me.

    What I would have changed? Jacket off and a hand gesture expressing clearly clapping/applauding as reward for something well done, a music piece played for him or a good portrait picture taken by a friend. Yes, I said nothing about sharpness because for me unsharpness may be a result of movement, like clapping.

    She looks good without the hands, actually I thought this was shot with a wide angle lens. Good idea to present it in black and white.

    Hi. I just wonder, since all the rest points are almost exhausted, if the two people were men.... would somebody complain about a tattooed arm being shown half rather than in full in the frame? Or Am I the only one who is bothered about it?

  • Naturist or Naturalist or both?

    Hi, wishing you both strong health. I am away from a manipulating device. Seen this and the previous picture today. Different crop and orientation is what I would suggest. First horizontal crop cuts off all the sky and part of forehead yet see what that does on the overall balance of light input and balance. It looks even as the whole frame is lit by a source coming from your side. Second framing is vertical as zooming in the picture, you get to hold the yellow flower at the edge of the frame, her elbow, the magnifying glass, her whole vfsce and fotrerfotrerhead ,the sky and the tree, just one tree the closest to her face. It leces a bit of naked back too be seen but no as muchvas to show the tattoo. Will pload my mods when possible.

    You never talk like that to a man who has got a walking stick ... he may pull out a sword from it... and yes they will put you in the coffin with your nice hat so you'll look a pretty dead.
    God bless

    Hi, me too I like the one with the stronger contrast.
    Mind you though I think judging from the wardrobe it needs a bit straightening by a tilt of a couple of degrees to the right. The song brings back many happy memories...

  • Sweet home ...

    Applauds, this is a very tranquil frame. It shows a character full of creativity, vision, and patience.
    Simple, colourful with a strong impact due to the contrast of colours to the dark background.
    A 3D painting almost Smile
    My two suggestions would be 1) the move of the yellow sharpener to the fašade of the building, as a window somewhere, on the middle as if on the door, or higher as if on first floor. I would not like to place it just in front of the ''door'' entrance as if it is a mat. If you have more yellow sharpeners...I would put them together to make the sun Smile 2) on the road away from the house I would have the white pencil where the black one is - it matches better with the light blue and the black goes better with teh deep purple pencil on the left..
    Bravo, this is an amazing picture.

    Hi; the cropped version left the elbow out.. I thought you had posted it under ''modifiable'' gallery so I did a crop where the part to the right looks like a WWII tail wing. ...
    I would have left more space at the bottom rather than the top of the frame.

    Hi Tracey, sorry to hear about that. Think for a moment that after the flood this car park will work again, so you will too. It feels much nicer to work somewhere you feel wanted too.

    Hello Ian,
    I will echo dark_lord's approach to it.
    I could see one set where the vertical frames are in the second row and the horizontal ones are on the first and third row from the top.
    If I am not making things more complex I would investigate their use in an ''artificially'' given 24 hour window.
    Empty early in the morning, busy during mid day and for the late hour a quiet place to rest the body of a tired soul.
    Good luck with the goal you have set. I wish you all the best.

  • Speed Demon

    Testing the brakes?
    I think the notion of speed would be there if not only the speed camera was working but also if the hair were blown back from the wind (I have a fan I can offer).

  • U.S. Navy Airplane Wreck at Solheimasandur

    Him it looks like black and white...so why not turning it to a true black and white?
    It's like making 1973 looking more like 1943

  • The leats at Kennal Vale

    ''Honey, how long until you fix the boiler?''
    I have two questions and they do not have to do with the water.
    1) what sort of light did you use? The warmth of it looks natural but the direction of it is not direct sunlight
    at noon the sun would not be on so low on the horizon. Did you use a golden reflector?
    2) can you confirm please that the focus was on her eyes? I seem to understand differently Blush
    thank you

  • Spiral

    Very nice Smile
    I know what your subject was and I happened to notice a resemblance to the actual shape of the word you used for it with the actual initial letter used to describe it. Now it looks like Zpiral to me. A flip on the other side though so that the left of the image goes to the right transforms the staircase to a big letter S.
    S for Super!

    No, no, no; this is not a ''spicy imperfection'', this is very good but ''not that spicy''

    It could look good too in black and white as well...

  • The Mechanic


    White clothing and white environment resemble Japanese car factories.
    Pity about the crease on the floor carpet on the right, that is a lesson to be taken home today
    Do not brake harshly, do not exceed the speed limits of 1mph when driving in so tight spaces.
    I think the mechanic is a very skilled person, good to have a seperate career beyond modelling and boxing.

    Bravo to both of you again

    Technical details, like skewed horizons, should not distract us from the beauty of what we have in front of our eyes. It takes less time to feel rather than to think, so go with your instincts, grab the moment...

    Flipping heck. I am not sure if she wore the Coach perfume or she had her shades bought at the fielmann store opposite. I see nothing wrong with her walking left to right.

    Hi, Nice final result. If I am not mistaken your 8mm lens on a crop x1.5 sensor would give you a 12mm viewing angle.
