    Hello Claude

    Edgy framing, radical composition, great chiaroscuro. I'm reminded of the work of
    Korkut Bostanci (bostankorkulugu). That's a compliment! Strong monochrome street imagery from Manchester.

    Hello Malgo

    They look like they've escaped from "Men in Black"! The lady in the middle looks at them with bemusement; the bearded man just wishes they would go away and let him drink his beer in peace. An amusing street grab shot.

    P.S. You can't get rid of me that easily: I just need a break from TE every once in a while, that's all.

    Hello Nicolas

    Hints of Spring indeed: I like the way the vibrant foreground contrasts with the mountains beyond, still in the frozen grip of Winter. I'm not sure about your frame that's touching the mountain-tops, however: no room for the peak to "breathe"!

    Hello Noel

    Well I certainly like lines and shapes, and I always enjoy a good monochrome, so this suits me fine! Frame-filling geometry and no colour to interfere with our appreciation of the architecture. Nice one.

    Hello Jean

    There's a real patina of age about this venerable old shed. I wonder if you ever discovered the contents: might be a decaying '30s car; more likely oil cans and general junk and detritus...

    Hello Silvio

    Near-monochromatic in very early Spring, although we can just see new leaves in bud. For us in the North it makes a change to see images of Italy that aren't sunny and colourful, and it reminds us that even in the Mediterranean, Winter is felt!

    Hello John

    For the record, this is a Dutch brig (2 masts, both with square sails) called "Morgenster" (Morning Star in English). She is a sail training ship based in the Netherlands. She was built, as a herring lugger under the name De Vrouw Maria, in 1919. In 1927, she was lengthened by 7 metres (23 ft) and converted into a motor fishing vessel. She was renamed Morgenster in 1959 and continued to be used as a fishing vessel until 1970. After a period of use for sport fishing and in the pirate radio business, she was acquired by her current owners for conversion back to a sailing vessel in 1983. She made her maiden voyage as a sail training ship in 2008, having been refitted as a brig.

    Your long lens has done a fair job of filling the frame with your subject.

    Regards

    Hello Serge

    I like the way your long lens has compressed the perspective and filled the frame with the subject. I like too the repeated pattern of faces and rifles, and the predominantly serious expressions. One chap can see the funny side though!

    Hello Gert

    Your current series of "small talks" are a reminder of my "conversations"! This is a particularly charming example, with the girl's happy giggles as her neck is devoured making the picture quirky and amusing. Are there vampires in Moldova?

    Hello Gy

    I must apologise for my absence from TE for a while, especially when I see myself "gracing" your portfolio! Better late than never I suppose. The weather wasn't great, the bald patch is embarrassing, but you've managed to make a reasonable silk purse out of my sow's ear! Colours are strong, sky has been boosted, and the location is special. Lovely to meet you all, and thanks for taking us round. Must do it again sometime...

    Kind regards

    Will

    P.S. I'm mildly surprised this hasn't been taken down by the Mods (offensive, degrading material!!)

    Who wouldn't mind being spotted by these two beauties? I absolutely agree with your comments about the signs, wood, rotting plaster and so on, but my eyes are consistently drawn back to those two faces. Excellent grab shot!

    A charming little grab shot, and one that the kids clearly were happy for you to take! Personally I like images containing people, and this one's a treasure, as the children are so unselfconscious. Lovely photograph.

    Been there, done that! And I've taken pictures there too, though I haven't thought to post any. Your image may inspire me to do so, however! Love the rich tones and the cathedral-like atmosphere. When are you next in Manchester?

    Hello Béatrice

    What's this? A famous, tourist honeypot location instead of your signature minimalist urban sidestreets?? But it's in monochrome, so you're forgiven! Taken fron Circular Quay, so not as unique as Noel imagines, but an interesting, and for me, nostalgic image.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    As is so often the case, it's the light that makes the photograph, and indeed makes it much more than "just a simple record shot"! We were on the lake a couple of years ago, and went to a largely unvisited floating village called Me Chrey: it had none of this bustle and no large tripper boats...

    Excellent b/w choice, and I like the slow shutter speed. Maybe the rock wall on the left is a little too intrusive and takes up too much of the frame; otherwise this is a classic monochrome landscape.
