    Hello Saša

    Thoroughly atmospheric - and chilly - image of this monastery at night. The gateway is illuminated rather than the monastery itself, which is defined for us just by those two ghostly towers.

    Hello Silvio

    This is a magical place, and it reminds me very much of Monteriggioni in Siena: not the hilly location, but the architecture. Beautiful.

    I've been known to upload similar composite images. And I enjoy pubs. So the two together creates a very appealing prospect. Nice idea.

    Hello Peter

    As your note suggests, it's definitely the light that makes this photograph stand out from the crowd. Indeed for me it's actually the shadows - or at least the contrast - that is the most impressive feature. I wonder how much (if any) PP work you did...

    Hello May

    A lovely atmospheric shot of Montmartre, at evening with an interesting mix of light sources. The lone figure works well, but he's not completely alone, as I see another figure sitting at the bottom of the steps. I like the table and chairs rather incongruously placed in the middle of the street, but I might have been tempted to clone away that vertical sign, as I find it a little distracting.

    A rare and welcome monochrome from you! And I see you're using your "black glass" again. The combination is really effective, and has created a very atmospheric image. Love it.

    Hello Gert

    Good old FP4! Did you do your own dev and printing in those days? This is a fine observational photograph, and although we can't see his face, we can imagine the interrogatory and perplexed look clearly. As I'm sure I've said before, these old images, good as they are intrinsically, gain added importance as historical documents. Looking forward to more!

    BTW, as ever, your "workshop" is easily the equal of your main post: why not give all your images the same oxygen of publicity??

    Kind regards

    Hello Rob

    Yes: it's the disconcerting scale thing that makes this image work so well. You did the right thing to include real people up close: I'm sure Ron Mueck would approve, and say it adds to his work, and makes his point perfectly. Unsettling and disorienting.

    Hello Benny

    A fine informal environmental portrait. You were quite close: surprised he didn't see you, or that his supervisor didn't shoo you out of the building site! Is that yellow cast a result of Shanghai's smog or a warm-up Photoshop filter?

    Hello Jasmis

    Your photograph radiates sadness. It's the monochrome, of course, the neglected look of the place, the perfunctory graffiti, but mainly the body language of the man, leaning forward, looking down, looking exhausted. But it's easy to read emotions into a scene that simply aren't there. For all I know, he's perfectly happy; his bags are full, and he's off home to cook himself a nice meal. I prefer to respond to your visual clues, however: sadness, hopelessness...

    Hello Roland

    I love this, and not just because it's in b/w (though that helps!) I particularly like the effect of two pictures in one: the close view of the cafe people, and the far view down the street. Great front to back sharpness too (can't tell what aperture you were using, as TE can't get its act together with the EXIF data). Proper street photography.

    Regards

    Magical shot. Taken a while ago now, but none the worse for that. Love the overall blue tones. And I saw Alexandra skiing on Facebook! Were you too busy shooting movies to bother with the old still camera this weekend??

    Hello Gert

    Just couldn't resist your title! And the photograph ain't bad either. I like the vertical format, and the great front to back sharpness: no EXIF data obviously, but I wonder what aperture you were using. No way you'd remember of course! A genuine tranche de vie.

    A fine portrait of the city: it's nice to see the waterfront, and boats in particular! Good colours. Is the vignette a result of a lens hood or a deliberate decision made in the editing phase?

    Hello Klaudio

    I'm surprised that this isn't taken on a macro lens, and equally surprised by the depth of field you've managed: at these close distances DoF can often be only a couple of centimetres. There's no accurate EXIF data (thanks to TE's long-standing failure to keep this site working properly), but I surmise a small aperture, and therefore maybe a tripod. Enough of the techie nerdishness. This is a truly beautiful creation: a landscape in miniature! Lovely.

    Hello Craig

    Nissan Figaro (not old, just retro-styled). I expect plenty of people have already identified it for you. It's certainly not a Metropolitan, nor an "ancient Morris"! I've been to Cobh (sailing in Cork Week) on several occasions, but don't remember seeing houses falling over quite so spectacularly! Your wide-angle has certainly offered a new perspective on a familiar subject.
