    Hello Gert,

    Yes, being somewhat obsessed with maps (like Gunnar), I just had to have a look at this place on Google maps but, not ever having been here and the Google maps being pretty fuzzy, I really couldn't make anything much out. And, of course, Google's little yellow man appears not yet to have ventured to this place - perhaps he never will!

    How interesting that the local cinema should take pride of place in this city over what we should have thought were more important buildings. Although a little rough, this main street looks remarkably wide considering the lack of vehicular traffic on it. And, once again, I don't think I can make out any evidence of any womenfolk on this street either.

    Again, a photograph of excellent quality considering its age and one which also gives us a fine snapshot of daily life here in happier and more settled times.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Stephen,

    As a lover of old motor vehicles, I love this picture! This is a "Bradford" van, produced for seven or eight years after World War II by the Jowett car company (better known for their more famous "Javelin" saloon car and their "Jupiter" sports car) but this one as been smartened up with a chromed radiator grille and a bright paint job. These Bradford vans were very much utility vehcles in their day and I remember them being very slow - on account of their tiny flat twin sidevalve engines.

    But you have captured this little gem perfectly as she pokes her nose out from the shade of that overhanging tree into the sunshine. The backdrop of the Bar Light Vessel and the buildings of the Albert Docks makes a perfect setting.

    Lovely light and fine vibrant colours, perfect composition and exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Will,

    Now, I've been here a couple of times - once about ten years ago - and also just last summer. And, yes, you're right: there has been an enormous change from when you took this lovely photograph. In fact, I simply couldn't resist having a look through some of my pictures from last year and, although it's by no means a good photograph, I've added a little workshop picture for you which, perhaps, just gives you a flavour of what this place is like nowadays.

    Your photograph is delightful and also of excellent quality despite the fact that it's been scanned from a 46 year old colour slide. Was this Kodachrome?

    Your composition is perfect and we can clearly see the little fleet of boats debouching from the harbour into the calm deep blue sea with the typical rocks on the left and the vegetation on the right adding a fine foreground. But, oh dear, not a single ice cream stall, burger van or souvenir shop in sight - how did you cope in those days?

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Malgo,

    Yes, Jason and Craig do have an ability to "play" with red in the foreground of their pictures - but what about our friend Gunnar (saxo042) who has done this same thing for years?

    Very well seen and very well taken too at just the right "decisive moment". That bright red beret of the lady on the right stands out beautifully but, together with her scarf and the other clothing of her friends, it almost seems to blend into the painting too.

    An excellent photograph and all the better because it must have been taken very quickly. Not only are the people interesting but the painting is too - a typical 19th Century "romantic" depiction of what must have been a dreadful and bloody battle.

    Lovely light, fine vibrant colours, perfect exposure and a perfect "decisive moment"!

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    This one from Auxerre is also very nice. Here the timber framing of the house creates a topclass background for this old fashioned lamp.
