    In thumbnail view - it immediately made me think of the Star Wars movies. This is before I read your note about the Alien or even the title... Obviously, great minds think alike... ;-)
    I bet the artist would be glad to read how our minds have reacted to his work. :-)

    Wow, Craig, I'm glad I haven't missed all those fine examples of abstract architectural photography you posted over the last couple of weeks. This could be anything from a building, to wave patterns, to mushroom gills, to pages of a strangly shaped book... There is no referrence to the size of this object, the viewer has been invited to use their imagination as creatively as the photographer has used his camera.
    Well done, great work!

    Unikalne zdjecie, ten moment nigdy sie nie powtorzy, a ty uwiecznilas te kobiety w pieknej pozie z pawiem. I tylko ty i one bedziecie miec`takie zdjecie w swoich albumach z podrozy. Zarowno dla nich, jak i dla ciebie to bylo cos w rodzaju pielgrzymki. Urokliwe miejsce i wyjatkowy budynek, ktory zasluguje na 29 godzin spedzonych w pociagach.

    Hi again Gert
    Of course, nobody would dare to expect you to resist the temptation of photographing the men in red in juxtapostion to the red tower... :-)
    I also note that both WS photos have splashes of red in the bottom right (scarf, girl in red...).
    Very cool and clever post.

    You must have uploaded this minutes ago, when I was writing comments to your previous post... :-)
    They say photographers turn 3-dimensional reality into 2-dimensional pictures. You seem to have done the opposite - spotted a 2D work of art and presented it as 3D in this image (at least at the beginning of your note). :-) The way it has been captured, it really could be either. But then I would really worry about the boy running carelessly along the sculpture.

    Hi Gert
    Great timing! The soap bubbles turn the street photographed on a cold and wet day into a place taken out of fairy tale and the girl into Alice in Wonderland.
    It's interesting they celebrate the King's birthday but before they used to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation. And both at the end of April...

    Hi Gert
    This is what I call "Gertesque". In your last critique to my image you referred to it as "nothing special", however, following your train of thought, I would rather call it "nothing special BUT...". What you have here is a well-observed interesting situation, cultural connotations and a strong sense of place. I also like the very graphic sense of perspective (also in the other WS photo).
    Well-used unexpected photo opportunity - in this case your taking the wrong turn at the station. :-)

    Hi John
    South Lanarkshire has been featured on TE homepage today - all three images yours.
    You captured my favourite kind of weather in this one. The light shining through the mist is stunning, the atmosphere perfect. The image makes me want to be there.
    Great use of diagonal leading lines and I like your choice of the main focal point - the runner provides an eye-catching splash of contrasting colour, like a ladybird on a green leaf...

    Hi Gert
    How beautiful the morning light is in Algeria! It saturates the colours and makes them truly stand out. The shadows make the photos look truly 3D.
    The people standing by the truck look well wrapped up and a good illustration of the conditions you are talking about in your note.
    34 years ago... I bet the landscape has not changed a bit... Probably neither have the means of transport.

    Hi Craig
    Yes, you're right, I love your note. :-)
    You captured the menacing nature of this building in your photo. By placing it in a wider context you made it stand out and kind of look a bit awkward, it immediately draws attention. almost sends shivers down my spine... (but then... I have read your note...).
    I'll miss TE and will be back as soon as I start working daytime/weekdays rather than 24/7.

    Good documentary photos can't always be sharp. What counts is you captured the moment and the mood.
    Also, I really like the low key feel and the composition with the smoking man framed by others and inclusion of the wall with whatever is written on it.
    Iyi hafta! :-)
