    Hi, you have mistakenly ticked this wonderful picture as of adult content...
    It's a great landscape picture instead.
    Please edit your image and mark it as ''non adult'' so more visitors can view it and admire it.

    Good focus on the spot you mentioned. My modification changed only a single thing: Exposure
    See the difference it makes?

  • 'Lines'

    Hi. Ideally when you take a picture you want to finish with any adjustment and manipulation at the moment you lift your finger from the shutter. Cropping should happen during framing the picture. Avoid having bright areas on the edges of your frame as eyes are lured to look at the bright areas first. Notice the part missing from the left of the first two modifications. It is a bright area which got eliminated. You could have achieved this if you had turned the lens to the right a bit... And that bit could allow you to capture the diagonal rod starting at the bottom right corner. If you can't fit something when you are on the widest length your lens can take, walk backwards until you fit it.
    I see something wrong with the lines facing flat opposite to the camera sensor. In a building standing I would expect any line appearing straight if you shot it dead square, which I think you have not. So finding the spot to shoot it from where it will look good requires you to keep. your cool and hold you horses before shooting. Architecture doesn't move, you can wait because the light during the fair weather will be stable. Tilting the lens upwards downwards or to the side will cause distortions.

    Hi, I think colour works best for this situation. I would expect a more "arty" posing for a black and white picture.

    Good result, indeed.
    Did she take the pose herself Dudler or did you instruct her?

    Hi, it's a 1948 Fleetmaster Convertible Chevy, nicely framed.
    I think it would look more impressive if you shot if from an even lower viewpoint.

    Great catch, properly shot!
    It takes lots of courage to turn this to mono.
    If I could award you my award I would grant it just for the sheer courage to turn reality into dream.
    Please don't tell me you can't see colours.

    Superb image with great balance of light, I presume the lighting settings were like the previous one.
    p.s. this could become the picture of the week

    Hello dudler, just me again Blush
    I know her slim silhouette pairs well diagonally with the empty long frame...
    but I can not resist the temptation to tell her to take it off the wall
    and hold it in a frame within a frame setting.
    I did a mono conversion of it too as I could not turn the burgundy cushion and curtain into green
    (which I find to be a better colour match). My mod has a bit of more contrast, reduced highlights and shadows (just a bit) and I hope it looks good when I upload it.
    Best regards,

    Hey Simon, which side of the pitch have you chosen to start playing?
    I would turn the picture around 180 degrees so as the Jako name is read by the viewers easily.
    These balls seem soooooooo 21rst century : )

  • And she didn't even look at us...

    A photograph is not the reality.

    I like the ingenious framing of the person in the bottom corner.
    But where as you have seen a woman there and photographed a woman in that corner...
    I can not distinguish other than a genderless person, who could well be a man sporting this hairstyle.
    So, assuming these two hats are for male users (I have my doubts for the left one) I would change the title to

    ''I suppose he doesn't like us''

    -it's already a lot-
    Pity I can't vote for it, great frame.

  • She came in search of paradise ......

    Me thinks it's located ''somewhere over the rainbow''..... the one Isreal Kamakawiwoʻole sung.
    I think I understand your mental torment... should I shoot all of her legs or all of the beach?
    I cropped the beach as protesting for the missing legs, lol.

  • The tap we love.

    That takes me back ages!
    I do recall those portable metal cans which stored about 3 litres of water and had a small tap and mirror for the morning shave. Or those clay jugs left on the northern window to keep the water cool Smile And it looks just like the installation of a similar tap in our garden at home in 1950's.
    Yes it is progress, to turn and tap and save you all the walking up to the source or the fountain...
    I see the dialogue establish diagonally with the window. I think though it is somehow irrelevant and although I am a big vertical frame user myself, this time my modification will be a horizontal frame following the direction of the pipe, the sole reason of your picture, the true subject.
    In my mod, I increased the exposure, the amount of light and I lowered the contrast.
    It looks brand new now, so according to my opinion, it should not be leaking, haha.
    Great picture of an object which changed the way of life. Bravo.

    I will agree with chatagnier above. I will also suggest you to trim a tiny proportion from the top to get rid of the big white reflection on the yellow bonnet.
    Kindly, pablophotographer

    When it rains eggs I cook an omelette.
    Well, I actually kept the yolks for that Dutch drink, the advocaat, and I used the whites.

    This is the reason I cropped to take away the lady on the right of the frame.
    Now the very straight walls are combined with the very curvy big egg where you fixed yourself in.
    A contrast of shapes and a coherence of shades. What more could I ask for?
    Yes, you in the cowboy hat, please raise your head after you do the focusing, eh?
