Gidday dear ADB
How's it going? I've been AWOL but now that Mum's out of hospital, will hopefully have more time for TEíng. Love this one, not just because of the subject and the fish, but because of how you used the wide angle lens to exaggerate the perspective, I like the blue caste to the photo and the wonderful definition the fish have, with a stunning graphism.
Nice work, thanks for sharing, have a lovely weekend
Jaw-dropping view by mkamionka (28444)

hehehe great title and so very appropriate. I'm sure even the ancient statue must think, "wow, I'm lucky to see this view all the time. A beautiful dome and what looks like the Italian equivalent of a baptistery. I remember going to Oxford many years ago, and being so impressed by the architecture - but I didn't even take a camera - silly me. So you're saving Oxford for me with your beautiful photo.
Excellent work, thanks for sharing
From the Shadows by ACL1978 (7327)

A difficult shot shooting into the sun like that, but one that has been very effective in drawing out the shadows. The wide angle works really well, giving the image a very artistic kind of distortion. I've love to see this in B&W, I think it would really work and perhaps would help deal with the slight over-exposure in the sky.
PS: Every time I open you into page, I see bubba, who never fails to put a smile on my face. I hope he's well, must be almost 1 now!

Wow I never knew you were so close to this famous skiing place. Even I, a non-skier, has heard of Whistler. And as I said on FB, are you sure you didn't make the name Inukshuk up, trying to compete with Woy Woy, Wattanobbi and Kangy Angy? I'm not convinced you haven't ;) And a beautiful WS with your gorgeous model.
Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend
PS: Did you hear that the Canadian and US ice hockey teams are coming to Australia to play in July? I've never seen an ice-hockey game before, and as I love watching any sport, will probably go. And will definitely be wearing the Maple Leaf :D

Sorry I've been so behind with my critiquing. Mum's finally out of hospital after 3 months, so things should quieten down a bit.
Anyway, this is a stunning shot, and just as stunning is the superb way you balanced the light and shade. The subject itself is fascinating, a little reminiscent of the same subject that Ike has posted today. Anyway, you have found a little treasure here, and as usual, have done it great justice. Thanks for sharing.

Wow another magnificent monochrome. I really like the bluish caste to it. The definition of the old houses and the clouds really make the photo for me. A fantastic shot, I bet this was a winner at the camera club!

Gidday dear Noel
You know I'm pretty relieved to read your note as I initially thought the poor bloke was having a fit. To know that he's..er...dancing.. is good. Each to their own as they say. Love the way you put it "a one man rave party". Ahh dontcha love this country, so much weirdness in such a very small space. hehehehe enjoy the wheatjuice!
A window to sea by ikeharel (48454)

Wow what amazing ruins on the seaside. I am surprised that they have survived at all. I like your POV which was a difficult one to take, given the extremes of harsh light and strong shade, but I think you did well to balance it out as you did. Well done, and a fascinating subject.
Daffodils All The Way! by Royaldevon (24388)

There really is nothing like an English garden in Spring. The lilacs and daffodils make a formidable team, and these little gardens are so tastefully and immaculately kept. Wonderful daily life shot, you are blessed to live in a place like this.

Salut cher Stephen
The larger format really does this photo justice and brings out its beautiful light balance, stunning architectural details and rich colours. I like the dappled light, it makes the photo look quintessentially Parisian. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day.
