    Hello Mesut

    I like your close framing, which leaves out everything except the rocks and the water. The result is an excerise in abstraction, and works very well.

    Hello Stephen

    Your wide-angle has presumably exaggerated the distance to the sea and the size of the beach, which is fine. Indeed I love the feeling of space and clarity. A very amiable picture!

    Hello Malgo

    What a place to build a village! How much more of it there is, we can't tell, but I suspect that's about it! Amazing scenery; would I want to live there? Probably not! But a beautiful shot.

    Hello Klaudio

    Simple and different: you've resisted the temptation to show us the scene (though perhaps you took those shots as well!), and instead, zoned in on a characteristic and very pleasing detail. Nice one: cropped I assume...

    Hello Jean

    This type of scenery is close to my heart, and in its simplicity and relative emptiness, an ideal subject for photography. Not much here, but quite enough! Boat, creek, cabins, sky...

    Hello Delphine

    This is a really pleasant set of images you're offering to us at the moment, but a long way from your signature monochrome urban work (hope it isn't going to replace it entirely!) Gorgeous scenery, and given a human scale by the inclusion of the two hikers. And a dog?

    Regards

    Will

    P.S. your advice on posting panoramas worked! Unlike the TE "approved" method.

    Hello Kasia

    Well, fairly merry I suppose! I like the fact that one of the ladies is standing, even though it's probably because there's nowhere to sit! But it's the fashions that really make this photograph work. Ethnographic photography with a heart. I wonder if they'd have asked you to take their picture if you had been male...

    An intriguing and slightly disorienting image: it made me stop and look carefully, which can be no bad thing! I'm reminded of playful tromp-l'oeil paintings. Clever and perceptive work.

    Hello Takero

    Yes I think the slow shutter-induced blur works well. It's sufficiently radical to be clearly not a mistake - camera shake or whatever - and certainly emphasizes the movement of the dancers. It manages to remind me of an impressionist painting. Interesting stuff. Here's my effort at the same technique.

    Hello Malgo

    You're right about the horizon line, but you're so keen to get your work out, that you can't wait for the arduous business of editing! I'm much more obsessive: can't let anyone see my stuff until I'm satisfied that it's as good as I can get it. I should learn from you to be more laid back: this is pretty damn good straight out of the camera. But I always shoot RAW...

    Hello Alexandre

    If there's wine involved, count me in! We tend to get very little Brazilian wine in the UK, maybe because of the climate, but I'm sure there are parts of Brazil which boast a Mediterranean-like climate: it's big enough!

    Hello Lisa

    Your sentiment about no trip to Sydney being complete without a visit to the Blue Mountains really rang bells with me. Both when we were living in Oz and when we visited last, we made that pilgrimage: several times when we lived in Newcastle. We used the "back passage" (!) across Wiseman's Ferry and up the Bells Line of Road. And of course I took this photograph, floodlit just like yours! It's the contrast between the orange floodlit rocks and the deep blue of the surrounding Jamison Valley that I like in this image. Good, and for me, nostalgic stuff.

    Regards

    Hello Delphine

    Beautiful place, and your photograph is both stunning and clever. I find it hard to believe that there were 38 separate images involved in this: that's some editing work! Mind you, it's not really until I opened the larger version that I really appreciated the true worth of this image. Size matters! You must tell me how to upload large panoramas. I've tried on several occasions, and never succeeded, so I don't post panoramas any more... Thanks for this work!

    Kind regards

    Will
