Suffocating by paola1987

This is really different and kinda creepy. Love it Smile


Reworked by kaybee

This is excellent. I love the treatment you've given it Smile


steam-punk-in by beckas

This is totally awesome and well deserving of all the praise. Excellent work and attention to detail Smile

I love it. I wish more people would just go with the light that's available instead of flashing and bouncing everything. I do prefer the original shot - it's just more atmospheric. Definately a location worth returning to so I look forward to seeing what you get next time Smile



LIE by BreadandShutter

Took me a while to get here but I'm glad I made it. Stunning just about covers it I think. It's a word that you see a lot in the gallery but in this case it really does apply. This is a true work of art and I am in awe Smile

Now... I don't do portrait photography by robs

I love the effect and everything about this. I hope you do more model shoots Smile

I can't add anything to what Geraint has said but I will say that I agree with every point he's made if that's any help Smile

suffolk sunrise by NEWMANP

I wouldn't normally comment on a landscape photo but since I'm in this discussion group thingy I must say that I do like this one. The processing is nicely restrained and the composition is simple and effective. The lighting is subtle and calming and that contrasts with the slight drama of the foreground. I would find it impossible not to put a figure in this Smile

Hmmm...at first I thought the posts on the left were essential to the composition but now I think I'd prefer the shot without them.


Montage II

Montage II by Geraint

I can't really add anything to what's been said but I do love this kind of montage, especially when, as here, it collects the more candid moments from a shoot Smile



Holly by User_Removed

I kinda like the outfit/location contrast because it's different although I think I'd prefer a horizontal format that gave us more of the background thereby creating a figure-in-landscape shot. The pose though...hmmm...doolittle beat me to it. I think you could maybe get away with it if her hands had been placed elsewhere - not sure where but it's always worth keeping models moving and shooting as many frames as possible Smile


Garden Feature

Garden Feature by LensYews

Given that you had no choice with regards pov I think I'd be tempted to try a few slight twists and crops to create graphically strong...abstracts and see if anything grabs you. I'm having an abstract day today - I'm seeing them everywhere Smile




I like the angle, the colours, the distribution of colours that contributes to the overall composition. I'm struggling slightly for a strong point of focus since the people are kind of small but I find this a pleasing enough image in an almost abstract way.



Holly by User_Removed

This is a well-balanced composition and for me the left to right of V1 works better. I especially like the low point of view that adds to the air of confidence. I'm less bothered by some of the issues raised than by the effect of lightening the jacket which has brought a speckled pattern that does not look like the fabric itself - i.e. it's not detail brought from the shadows but, I suspect, digital noise maybe?


Thats my boy

Thats my boy by danbrann

I have to say this is one of the best portraits of Wes that I've seen Smile

It's always a pleasure to look through your portfolio - you are, without a doubt, one of the best portrait photographers on EPZ Smile

I have to say there are some truly amazing portraits in here. The quality of your child photography is particulary impressive. Kudos.

Looking through your portfolio (again) I'm struck (again) by how impressive many of your portraits truly are. Some I would rate amongst the best on ePz. Superb work.



Added Date: 28/06/2007 - 6:26 PM

Hi. I'd just like to say thanks for the comment you left on my pf. It is very much appreciated and I will pass on your kind words to the models I am working with Smile I have to say that your own pf contains a refreshingly varied and remarkable selection of photos with many stand-out images. Excellent work Smile

HI. Just like to say thanks for the comment you left on my pf. It is much appreciated. I don't often comment on landscapes but I have to say the landscapes in your pf are truly stunning and indeed inspirational. Keep up the excellent work Smile



Added Date: 04/03/2007 - 3:48 PM

Yours is easily one of the most imaginative bodies of work on ePhotozine. A truly stunning and original portfolio. I love the Cecil Beaton quote btw. And thanks for the lovely comment you left on my portfolio.

Take care,



Added Date: 19/03/2006 - 9:41 AM

Have just gone through your portfolio and scattered some well deserved clicks. Rather than comment on these individually I thought I'd say something here. Your Showcase, in particular, is quite extraordinary, with some truly moving and luminous images. Excellent work.



Added Date: 08/06/2006 - 11:12 AM

A remarkable portfolio full of pictures that have so much impact - something lacking in a lot of shots you see around. Your presentation is simple but effective. Excellent work all round.
