An image with a pleasing symmetry about it. I like the light and colours and the excellent detail.
You are right about the distortion in my shot of the church. In the absence of an ultra wide angle lens, I had to resort to a stitch. Not always easy to get the lines right.

The graves are so closely packed together, they feel to be on the move, like Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'!
The sepia effect certainly adds to the sense of creepiness and age!
A great subject for today!!
I have a store of chocolate eyeballs, green and sinister looking, for any visitors, tonight!
Have a great Hallowe'en,
I was listening, on the radio, to a guy who had a Hallowe'en party and everyone had to dress up as characters from The Rocky Horror Show. Some kids came to trick or treat, at the house, and were so scared by the occupants that they fled screaming!! Now, that's a good Hallowe'en story!

A very impressive cathedral that still bears the evident signs of its fortification like many churches in France. I like the point of view with the street on the right serving to give the image depth whilst creating a fine long perspective. Very well presented under a pleasing light with excellent colours and sharpness.

A very clever composition perfectly suited to the panoramic format. Wonderful long perspective with the parasols stretching away into infinity. Crisp clear colours and excellent sharpness. I like it very much.

I just love to catch a moody day, like this.
Fog doesn't happen in the U.K. as much as it used to but, according to Craig, it is a regular occurrence in Newfoundland! I'm surprised that in June, there are still traces of snow!
A really well composed and atmospheric image.

A lovely little anecdote to go with this delightful composition. I like the composition and the amount of space given over to this lovely upside-down reflections. Light and colours are most appealing and sharpness very good on the TE beta site. One just wonders how much longer this is going to remain a beta site?
To answer your question I was able to include the whole of the Town Hall, but the top bit which is a rather splendid dome, was completely covered in scaffolding. On balance, I thought it better to crop that.

Well, I've never seen anything like this, before, but what a good idea to keep cool! Maybe the ducks have realised that there may be food associated with tables!!
A very amusing shot!
The sunlight is obviously strong but it may have helped you capture the strong ripple details around the table.
Maybe the focus is stronger on the table than the ducks.

I was wondering what had happened to you.
It's good to see you posting again.
Autumn brings out the artist, as well as the photographer, in us! The colours, here, are rich and warm and make a very effective surround for the focal girl, who is strongly placed in the frame.
Have a lovely day,
