blue and white

blue and white by justahobby

Quote: I have nothing to add: a lovely shot (and I have trouble resisting domes, too!), and the mods have tidied up minor details to simplify and perfect it.

I couldn't have described it better !

I like this effect with the attractive arched passage leading us to the two ladies and into the street beyond.
To my eyes there is a definite lean to the left, which a rotation to the right of 1.5 degrees seems to cure. With architectural features they look better if the geometry is right. I altered the lighting a little to put a touch of detail in the street outside
London does have some fascinating buildings and you have caught this nicely.

I think the girls add a lot to this shot so I have tried rather a drastic crop, removing the building and most of the pots on the left making an almost square image and concentrating on the area around the ladies. Also taken a little blue out to let some of the warmer colours through. Just an alternative idea - the original gives a wonderful holiday feeling!

You must have had a wonderful holiday on Santorini by the looks of these shots you have shared with us - all good for the soul ! I like this one too but compared with your other posts I find this rather cluttered and, though the lovely colours and blue skies are still there, the simplicity of one or two strong features has been lost? Not that I wouldn't have been very pleased to have taken it!
The huge volcano that produced the flooded crater here happened at about the same time in history as the cleaving of the waters in the Red Sea when Moses was leading his people out of Egypt. According to one historian the sea level fell dramatically as it rushed into the huge hole caused by the eruption which allowed Moses to cross, then the tsunami that inevitably followed reached the area just in time to swallow up the pursuing soldiers - interesting theory.

In the Hay

In the Hay by danbrann

Quote: Good reportage. I've always thought those seats must be murder after a couple of hours.

Spent some hours on a similar seat fitted to an old Fordson tractor - helping with the harvest when but a lad and it was surprisingly comfortable. A very pleasing set of images which brings back memories of helping out on my friend's father's farm during the WW2 They still had one big shire horse called Captain.

Upper Lake, Glendalough

A splendid shot as it is but I think Mike's mod has made it even better - well done both !

pygos 2

pygos 2 by justahobby

This one still has that lovely, clean freshness of your other post, but also shows the wonderfully intricate work in the railings. The two mods are good with the verticals adjusted and the red bin subdued but these are the sort of images that raise my spirits !


Fox and Cubs

Fox and Cubs by Alan_Baseley

They are an attractive flower and you have caught the moment beautifully with the hoverfly(?) refuelling.
Another name for the plant is Orange Hawkweed.


Pyrgos by justahobby

I notice your comment that "just being there was a joy" and I must say that looking at your shots of Santorini is a joy to me too! - clean bright shapes in lovely sunlight.
I agree with Willie and Paul that the railings in the foreground could be cropped off, but they are rather beautiful and an alternative crop could to remove the top half and concentrate on the intricate work involved in creating them.


Unfinished image

Unfinished image by nishant101

An interesting shot that has provoked a lot of helpful comments and advice. Coming late to this I was able to see your later uploads and I have to say the original colour version with the chapel in the foreground appeals to me the most, especially if you crop it square from the right. I don't think the tree helps at all. I haven't seen the Milky Way for years - too much light pollution round here - so thanks for posting this excellent image.


These little girls are learning soccer skills from the coaching staff of the University. Perhaps they will be future World Cup Players?

These little girls are learning soccer skills from the coaching staff of the University. Perhaps they will be future World Cup Players? by CPO1944

An excellent shot and I think Paintman's mod is very effective
I feel a red card is imminent however, as the girl with the green top is looking directly at the girl in red, as if she's after the player and not the ball - tough cookies these girls !!


Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Between a Rock and a Hard Place by jeanie

Wonderful, dramatic scene with good strong colours. ( Cuillins?)

ogwen valley

ogwen valley by jimmyp

A fine shot that brings back memories of week end expeditions in Snowdonia (quite a few years ago!) Since the photos I took in those days were all on black and white ( Ilford) film this b/w study really appeals.
I think that is Tryfan on the left and the valley behind Llyn Ogwen is where the rock climbers do their stuff. The translation of the Welsh name for the mountain on the right I remember is "The hill of the dappled mare" I'd better stop - getting a bit carried away!


The Old Bill

The Old Bill by doverpic

A lovely bit of nostalgia for me as I am just old enough to remember these in action! I think the headlights have the wartime shades on them - sirens were in the future and the bell was the equivalent in those days. Each side of the bell are the normal car horns. Nice detail in the shot .


clear the gap

clear the gap by mogobiker

"Where's reverse on this thing?"
Really good action shot - the expression is great
I rotated the image clockwise slightly. cooled the colour and increased the contrast on the face. I then cropped to get a nice diagonal coming out of the bottom left hand corner and to focus more on the biker - this has placed him more central rather than on a third, but he is the main interest so I would think that is OK.
Just an alternative to a fine shot


Wollerton by Danny1970

A lovely display of summer colour - does Wollerton refer to the gardens so named in Shropshire -just down the road from me


(just looked at your portfolio with the shot of Wollerton Old Hall, which answers my question!)
