    Hi Gert
    in response to my own response to your question about security guards, i guess you have been to America.

    this is an old photo, but not quite as old as most of your old shots. classic NYC shot, we all try to get one like this when we're in the city, me too.

    fun to see the ESB in the bg towering over the cityscape.
    I like that you added in the rivets, that section gives the photo a more rustic mechanical feel.

    Strange to see you only have 2 photos from the US.
    cheers

    Hello Les,

    As soon as I saw your title I remembered that you had said that you'd been out near your home taking photographs of these lovely flowers but I see that this is a picture from ten years ago. But what a fine quality photograph it is considering that it is a scan of a colour slide!

    Your composition is both excellent and most pleasing to the eye and the light is truly beautiful. I love how the spring foliage on the background trees is so brightly and freshly lit while the bluebells themselves lie in relative shade. The colours are magical and in no way oversaturated and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    A fabulous photograph, especially considering that it has been scanned from a ten year old colour slide.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I'm actually amazed at the quality of this scan. Perhaps that has something to do with Fuji Velvia but I also suspect your scanner and your scanning technique must be very good too. What sort of scanner do you use or was this done professionally?

    P.P.S. On another technical topic, are you having problems with this TE website? I've been trying to write this critique for about three quarters of an hour - my text kept freezing then anything I did manage to type was totally corrupted. Whether this has something to do with Microsoft Edge and Windows 10 I'm not sure though I have to admit I don't have similar problems with any other website. In fact, I've just had to close down and restart my computer because the task manager was telling me my memory (all 16 GB of it!) was running flat out at 100%. I'm certain (as are many others) that this website causes many of these problems and it doesn't look like the technical people here are going to do anything about it. And that's a real shame because I'm also sure it's the reason so many good members and good photographers have already left - this place is not half so busy or interesting as it was a couple of years ago. Very sad. :(

    P.P.P.S. I hope, Les, that your health is continuing to improve and you're managing to get out and about a little more. And I trust that Gladys is well too.

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    A way to create a ghost imagine is take as long an exposure as possible as shown I thought the woman was waiting for her dearly beloved to join her in the ever after!!!!! Great idea, Congrats

    Hello Daniel,
    An interesting note to accompany this atmospheric composition, which is well suited to the close narrow framing. Good management of the light and shadow contrasts and excellent sharpness. The beautiful blue sky makes a superb contrast for the red roofs of the houses. Another splendid image from the delightful city of Porto.

    How can we overlook the looming twin spires which dominate the skyline so effectively which is strongly placed image enhanced by good clarity, detail and colour rendition. A pleasing architectural shot of the grand church. Well done, TFS

    Hello Rob,

    Well there's certainly no mistaking what the message is here. Very bold and colourful, sending out a message to all and sundry! But perhaps there are some other hidden features here which I don't fully understand - is bottom part of that hand supposed to represent part of a gun or a tuba, perhaps?

    Whatever the true meaning of this splendid example of graffiti, you have captured it perfectly in this very well composed and colourful photograph. The bright light and rich colours are superb and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Federico
    A very calming and pleasing composition, almost as if the scene has been posed just for you. That's amazing nice informative especially intriguing is the grass-boat complemented by foreground golden reeds' shallow dof and good glimpse of distant shore. Position is spot on as is the clarity and color rendition with good eye connection. Superb & well-rendered lively image, Congrats.

    Bonjour Denis,

    Another lovely photograph from your trip to Venice last autumn.

    Because of the obliquity of the sunlight, I presume that this was taken either in early morning or in the evening, the very best times for photography, because the warm light illuminates the colourful fašades of the buildings beautifully and provides glorious reflections of them in the dark and shaded calm water of the canal.

    I love your fine composition in which the people on the bridge and the man on the left are welcome inclusions. The light and colours are stunningly beautiful as are the lovely clear reflections. Perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Malgo,

    Bravo!! Well done, Grandma!! :)

    Of course, I had no doubt at all that you managed to climb right to the top of this singing dune, even although it didn't want to sing to you this day! This sort of terrain can be very hard work for walking: you take two steps forward and you slide back at least one.

    And very wise to use a mobile to take pictures here - good cameras don't like blown sand!

    A lovely photograph with lovely light and rich colours (blue and orange/ochre always go so well together) and well composed too with other walkers clearly seen scaling the ridge of the dune. And excellent sharpness and clarity too.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
