    Hello Craig

    My favourite so far to come out of the Edinburgh TE meeting! Partly I guess, because it's monochrome, partly the biting sharpness, and also the wonderful strong contrasts from the harsh midday sun (in Scotland!), which beautifully reduce towards the background. Fine shot.

    Hello Mesut

    I like the distorted effects you've got here. If not original, then certainly unusual. Nice one.

    Hello Bartek

    I like the slight under-exposure here: it's strengthened the saturation and increased the drama, especially in the sky. Good choice of vertical format as well, which emphasizes the division between the shadowed foreground and the sunlit middle and distance. And the central focus - the windmill - is satisfyingly place on the thirds principle. Nice one.

    Hi neighbour!

    What an excellent architectural shot! Of course I approve of the monochrome treatment. You say you shot in b/w: is that right, or is this a result of a pp decision? And did you use a red filter?? I'm feeling positively vertiginous...

    Hello Mike

    A different take on fly-on-the-wall! Not sure how you got up there, but the quirky angled framing works a treat. I can understand your interest in the architecture of these places, thought I can't agree about the people: for me the person is the picture...

    Hello Michelle

    Nice to see you back posting again! I like this everyday street shot: it's unpretentious, realistic, familiar. And the red flowers over the pavement add an interesting twist to this urban environment.

    Transhumance through a town! I may be wrong, but that seems quite unusual to me. Dark, brooding, misty, atmospheric. I like it!

    A beautiful sylvan scene you have delivered this time for our delight and delectation! The road winding through the trees creates a very tempting lead-line, and makes me want to explore further. Far removed from your urban imagery.

    And I can perfectly understand why you love it! A beautiful place, and you've captured a lovely little back lane. The tumbling bougainvillea, and the patterned pavement perfectly define Andalusia.

    Another gritty, industrial photograph. Well I like them, anyway! Good dark tones seem to suit the subject matter; my only slight concern is the bland and burnt-out sky.

    So much more than a record of the painting. The inclusion of the child looking at it gives the photograph context and indeed a story: what is her reaction, we wonder...

    Hello Beatrice

    I seem to remember when I was on Belle-Ile, I couldn't have taken such a photograph, as the whole island was rammed with people! You've managed to find a quirky, quiet corner, and produced a very satisfying composition of pinks and oranges. Nice one.

    A fine contre-jour shot, which almost feels abstract in its conception. I'm wondering how you got to travel with the shepherds: do you know them, or did you just tag along?

    Hello Kasia

    Super star shot. Of course the EXIF data is still not available, so we don't know what shutter speed/aperture/ISO recipe you used. It would be good to know. I remember seeing a similar shot taken in the outback of NSW, with a loom of light on the horizon, which was identified as the lights of Sydney, some 100 miles distant. So I wonder how far from significant light pollution you actually were...

    Kind regards

    Hello Serge

    I like the messiness of this working harbour, that you've deliberately retained and even emphasized. It isn't pretty, but it's authentic, un-posed, real. The palettes on the quay, the detritus on the slipway, even the wind-farm on the hills behind the town, give the photograph credibility and validity.

    Regards
