    Hello Gert

    Lovely landscape and an excellent composition, considering that you were bumping along in a train at the time. I assume those are rice terraces that we can see on the hillsides beyond the houses. And your scan is pretty damn good as well: maybe some vignetting and a slight green/cyan colour cast, but as sharp as you like, and apparently quite grain-free. I would love to know what you talked to your fellow passenger about (given that you're a journalist!) and what it was like as foreign visitor to China during Deng Xiaoping's period of office...

    Hello Murat
    Great picture that shows us this church in all its beauty. The sky is marvellous and a excellent background together with the green colours of the tree-leaves.
    Excellent result.

    Bonjour Philippe
    Good to see your back and with your special signature of a beautiful church in a lovely French village.
    A recent picture, I see. I hope you have filled your collection with a lot of new and attractive pictures.

    Hello Ourania

    An unusual and very welcome photograph, that gives TE viewers something different from their usual diet of postcards. I love the dynamism in Cassandra's movement, excellently captured by your choice of shutter speed. I don't know what it was, but it certainly wasn't 30 seconds! I wonder if TE will ever bother to put its house in order...

    Hello Noel

    Now this is a fine image, and for some reason, doesn't remind me of Ireland: on first glance, I was thinking Patagonia... But you've created a very satisfying composition, with the holy mountain offset, and the reverse sweep of the beach cutting across the frame. And I assume you used a pretty small aperture, as you've managed a really wide depth of focus, from the mountain right forward to the nearest pebbles. Nice one.

    Regards

    A very dynamic scene when the subway passed this section of the bridge, Rob.
    Excellent clear picture, good DOF and light.
    In my second thought, I would suggest to crop the upper part structure, It would not change the overall scene, to my humble opinion.
    I had prepared a WS, will post only if you will agree.
    Good evening,

    Hello Lisa

    Never tried riding a dinosaur: must try it some time. Your photograph, with its predominantly warm pinks and oranges, makes a delightful seascape. Great composition too, with the camera pointed down slightly to give us plenty of the dinosaur, and a small aperture/wide angle (I assume) gives plenty of sharp depth of focus. Very nice indeed.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    In many ways, this reminds me of an old-fashioned English pub! And of course the two establishments are used in very similar ways, as pubs are important community centres as well. I love the dark rich tones, and the quiet conversation. You did well to catch this candid moment without the two apparently noticing your interest in them. A DSLR makes quite a noise when you trip the shutter, so I wonder if there was some background noise maybe? Sadly most British pubs have "musak" these days...

    I like the composition here: the vertical frame and the emphasis given to that gorgeous blue sky. The goats and the cross are also well-balanced. Nice one.

    Fine aerial perspective, and I love the dusty golden tones of evening. For me, it's just as well that the high-rises are partially obscured by mist.

    Hello Sayeed

    I like the chiaroscuro effect here. And I think you've done more than just simulate Kodak TMax here: presumably you've suppressed all colours apart from red. The near-silhouettes work really well. I just wish we could hear the singer as well.

    Hello Beatrice

    This looks almost too pretty to be one of your photographs! Is this your attempt to ingratiate yourself with the TE fraternity by showing postcards??! But it's certainly a delightful spot, and the monochrome, though not particularly popular on this site, is nevertheless beautifully graded. Looks almost as if you'd used the Zone System!

    Hello Lisa,
    Poor you, having nowhere but a rock to go after work. Hopefully you could console yourself with the view of the sea, the pink sky and the waves floating like cream across the rocks. For a moment I thought I saw a fossilized crocodile somewhere in the middle. It's a nice exposure too.
    Best regards,

    Hello Serghei,
    There is a lot of water in this photo, along with spray and haze and clouds flowing low and high. It's very spectacular, for sure an unforgettable sight for you, and there is a fine balance between the people in the lower left corner and the high-rise Canadian buildings on the uppe right side.
