    Hello Craig

    Ah, I`ve been waiting for this. Argh, I know well that the weather conditions wasn`t the best this day, unfortunately. Well, you have a reason to come back some day, I really hope you do:)

    I love the composition and the way you have cropped and presented it. What makes this really outstanding is the clever way you have included the yellow triangle whilst the rest is mainly red buildings. Did I tell you that my great, great-grandfather once owned one of these houses at Bryggen, one of the white ones we can see in your WS. Fine shot, Craig - waiting for more...

    Greetings, Erling

    Hi Vasilis

    I suppose it's early morning, and the pink hues in the sky announce the coming sun. There is no wind, the people in the boat at anchor are still sleeping, you're the only person to take the best of this moment. Thank you for sharing
    Cheers

    Hello Recep

    A most classic scene, but your subtle bl/w shot still manages to surprise. That's quite a feat!

    Good job!

    Long time, no see.

    Strong and full of fine contrasts. No leaning angle, but head on. And it works. Tfs!

    Hello Alfons

    In your conversion I absolutely love how you managed to highlight the white on the house. The many people below (and yes, that dog too) are left in the dark, noticed as details afterwards...I like this effect here.

    A fine piece of work, thanks for sharing it.

    Hello Klaudio

    A playful architectural touch, and it looks like fun to touch as well. A fine capture. On a sunny day, I can imagine lots of opportunities for creative photography here. Just look at that one hand in the middle...

    Hi John

    Strong and solid architecture, and at 1/3 you manages to bring out some fine wooden textures. I also like the tilt here. Fine shot, if you ask me.

    Hi Daniel

    Deep and strong blue, and an almost abstract composition in the way you distributed the green and branches around it. I like the result.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Hip shots, even by a good photographer, score at about 1 to 10 ratio, I guess. Obviously, most are rubbish and quickly discarded. Yet, they can also bring unexpected quality and with a good selection, can yield sosme really good results. Odd angles, noise, over- and underexposure...it's all part of the fun!

    Bring the noise!

    Here the sunlight specks are OK, the white-out triangle in the back too, what really makes it work for me is that red bag in the top left corner. The way it captures the light...magic!

    A good selection!

    Cheers

    Benny

    PS: I once wrote a (modest) study on art and creativity. The title of it was the same as the one you picked for this picture! :)

    Hello again dear Takero

    Interesting use of dof here, to focus on the hat, leaving the actual person hidden and much of the other details slightly blurred, adding mystery and ambience to the scene.

    Merhaba again, dear Mesut

    A strongly graphic shot of a fascinating area. The Black sea coast of Turkey is somewhere on that (long) list of places I hope to visit some day.

    Very colourful, the microfoon adds a touch of modernity. Here too, beauty is in detail.

    An impressive capture of these changing times. I feel nostalgic for neglected beauty and wonder how long the 'new' buildings will last.
