  • Cold War Smile 2 by dark_lord

    Very dramatic. Love the angle. Would it be too cheeky to ask where you took the shot?

  • The 5th Beatle by VicBarnes

    A beautifully candid and very personal portrait just dripping with atmosphere and occasion. The graininess and the archival feel tends only to heighten this. Gets my vote and would get more than one if I could give it.

  • Weekly Wash... by Graflex

    I love the fact that you have to look closely at this to fully appreciate its undoubted appeal. Was the young lady an acquaintance or was it just being in the right place at the right time to capture that 'decisive moment'?
    Love the pic. Gets my vote.

  • Emma/Portrait by Graflex

    The wonderful pose, the great expression, the lovely lighting, the sexual undertones, all of these things captivate the viewer in this charming portrait. Why are we discussing fingernails? I have never heard such nonsense. Wish I could clone out that ridiculous comment!
    A lovely portrait, and it gets my vote

  • Sunny day in Trafalgar by gossyboy

    Are you improving, you ask. Well, having looked through your portfolio the answer is a definite yes. You are developing a good eye for an unusual angle on a subject and seeing details within a scene to focus in on, rather than going for the obvious. Keep up the good work.
    Don't be disheartened either that your pix do not get a high number of votes. Mine don't either. It strikes me, and this is a purely personal view, that many of the best pix get very few votes. It means nothing.
    But, for what it is worth, this one gets mine.

  • Reflections, Hamar Water by Mal_Reeves

    Excellent reflection. Very atmospheric shot. Beautiful natural colours. Will not impress those who love to exaggerate colours in Photoshop, but I prefer things as they are. Gets my vote anyway

  • Canary Wharf 2 by pentaxian

    Interestingly, in response to Graflex, I did get stopped a few times by security guards but I talked my way out of it -- years of experience!

    More recently I phoned Canary Wharf Estates press office to ask about photography. They told me that if the photos are for one's own private use and not for publication, no permission is necessary, Even with a tripod, if you're a private individual doing it for your own use, still no permission is necessary.

    But with conflicting reports on what the police attitude now is, there's no guarantee I won't be locked up by the City of London police next time I try it!

    Crazy times we live in!

  • Posted on: Canon EOS 50D vs Pentax K-7

    Congratulations on a far more balanced comparison than we are used to in the UK. The accessible RAW button is a God send and the backwards compatibility is something I take full advantage of as a K7 owner, having snapped up some real bargains on eBay, such as a superb Sigma 135mm f2.8 prime lens, which produces breathtakingly good results on the K7 once you find the sub-menu that allows you to use a lens with an aperture ring. But at least you can!
    Keep up the good work!

  • Posted on: Veolia title taken from José Luis Rodríguez

    On a side issue... I saw the pic at the Natural History Museum show and it is an impressive shot. But did it deserve to win as a camera-trap shot. Unlike other shots that were actual wildlife action was captured real-time in camera by the photographer, was this shot nit just setting it all up and hoping a great shot would come along?
    Perhaps I am being churlish, but there were more skilfull shots that I felt deserved to win the category more than this. But then, I guess it's a ll subjective.

  • Posted on: Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC MACRO OS HSM

    This "Hyper Sonic Moor" it has -- is that some kind of high-speed option for photographing fast-moving wildlife on Dartmoor? Could come in handy!
