    Hello Gert

    I love this series of documentary photographs: keep them coming! You say this was Kodachrome reversal film, and I know that slide film is inherently very contrasty; in addition, at some stage in the process, a colour cast has been introduced. I hope you won't mind, therefore if I offer a WS which tries to address these issues. I used a violet photo-filter, reduced the contrast and did some colour re-balancing.

    Hello Lucas

    I'm always drawn for some reason, to monochrome images, and this one, with its strong contrasts and chiaroscuro effect, really exploits the b/w medium to its maximum. A good workaday subject too.

    Hello Denis

    I thought the cloud in the background was a snowy mountain when I first looked at the thumbnail. But it's still the cloud which creates the composition, echoing, as it does, the maze of white dwellings in the foreground. And that orange tower set on the thirds line is the icing on the cake. Nice one.

    Beautiful girl, beautiful photograph, and taken in very difficult lighting situation. The dancer looks completely focussed on the ritual.

    Hello Claude

    Excellent and graphic image: I like it a lot. I might like it even more without the orange plastic outboard dinghy in the frame, but it was so close, you couldn't really consider cropping it out.

    Hello Sven

    I've seen the "solution" to the puzzle, and it's a wonderfully inventive sculpture (?), but I prefer this more radical and edgy close-up. The angry, strong colour, and the well-placed leaves are all we are given in this tight frame, and all we need!

    A clever and well-seen reflective shot. I like the disjuncture between the "real" and the "reflected". Good colour harmony too.

    Hello Christiane

    Great idea, but I think you've been defeated by the low light: although there's no EXIF data provided, this has all the hallmarks of camera-shake induced by slow shutter speed, and insufficient ISO. A shame as it's a strong composition, and beautifully graphic.

    Hello Daniel

    A crop, presumably, but expertly achieved to emphasize the simple, graphic composition that you had seen in the viewfinder. I like the colour contrasts and the strong shadows in particular.

    Hello Paul

    Bruges I know well; Damme I've never been to. My loss, obviously. This is a lovely corner, showing a bend in the canal, lines of trees yet to gain their Spring green and houses on the horizon. I don't need anything else.

    Hello Bulent

    This is a lovely piece of social-documentary observation. Obviously not posed, but you've had the fortune to manage an excellent composition, with the frame effectively split into quarters, with the ladies inhabiting opposite quadrants. And you've been spied taking the picture! Love it.

    Hello Rob

    Screaming, it seems to me, is le mot juste. It's the making of this photograph, which is also (I've managed to see, now I've put my sunglasses on) extremely well composed! Three windows, conveniently divided for the thirds, and that cheeky little number sneaking into the top corner. Wonderful.

    Hello Gert

    Shallow depth of field, soft focus on the faces, deep shadows a little grey, but who cares? This is another of your important social-documentary shots from 30-odd years ago and works very well to show life being lived as it was then. I wonder how much - if anything - has changed in the intervening years...

    Hello Constantino

    When I looked at the thumbnail, I could have sworn I was looking at a b/w image, but there are indeed some slight vestiges of colour to be seen. But this is certainly not Greece as the brochures show us, and how most holiday-makers experience the place. So thanks to you - and Ourania - for showing us something authentic and different.

    Hello Serge

    That's a pretty extreme wide-angle you've got hold of there! The steep perspective is giving me acrophobia! But I'm attracted to this elegant, and largely empty square: a group sit for an "all'aperto" lunch, and a few pedestrians also can be seen, but the feeling is of lots of open space in the middle of the city.

    Charming group portrait, and all the more interesting for being a vintage effort. The image is a little soft (lens? focussing? scanner?), but that really doesn't matter, as the cheeky personalities shine through.
