A quick view of pentaxian's recent activity.

  • The 5th Beatle

    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...

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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 They told me that if the photos are for one's own private use and not for publication, no permission is necessary, Even with a tripod, if you're a private individual doing it for your own use, still no permission is necessary.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!

    A gorgeous portrait, Vic. Sexy, moody, alluring, great pose,beautifully lit. Ticks all the boxes for me. B&W perfect too. Colour would have been a distraction. Deserves a vote.
