    Hello Craig

    Yep, what a wonderful photo opportunity. I'm reminded of Venice Carnevale, where the masked promenaders are almost asking to have their photograph taken, and certainly pose for the cameras. This girl looks amazing, but for me it's the "genuine" bits - her expression and faintly challenging eye-contact - that make the image work so well.

    Hello Takero

    Yes it's the expression and the eye contact that make this image work so well for me. Your long lens has filled the frame with your subject, and allowed her to stand out from the background. Very nice.

    Hello Stephen

    What I like most about this photograph is the receding perspective, and the cool, muted colours. Nicely framed and atmospheric. Maybe a couple sitting at one of the tables would be OK: I think I'm with Gert on that one!

    Hello Malgo

    As ever, it's the light that makes the photograph, and your choice of this low, raking, warm evening light creates a very appealing view. An excellent postcard, in the best sense of the word!

    Hello Jean

    This looks even more crowded that where I moor my boat, and I sometimes struggle to find my mooring buoy in the midst of so many! It makes me wonder what sort of shelter there is here, and what the place must look like in the Winter. Shot at the long end of your zoom I guess in order to compress perspective.

    Hello Luciano

    Those are big eggs, I reckon! I like this candid shot of everyday life; I wonder if she knew you were pointing your camera at her? Gert would call this a "nothing special" shot, which makes it all the more special for me!

    Hello Jean

    Yes it was a shame about the dull light. So I wonder if you considered rendering this shot in black and white? But then I'm a bit of a fan of monochrome, and think that many images would benefit from losing their colour. Don't listen to me, I'm rambling again...

    Hello Mesut

    I really like the abandoned, derelict place you've found to photograph. And I wonder why it is that dereliction seems so much more photogenic than smartness... The open door leads into - What??

    Hello Jimmy

    Seaside images are usually more upbeat than this! But you've created a really atmospheric, moody shot, almost monochrome in its threatening gloom. I'm reminded that Hurricane Sandy sank the "Bounty" replica sailing ship with the loss of at least 2 lives back then...

    Hello Gert

    Having been away from TE for a while, I'm trying to pick up the traces again, and of course had to visit your portfolio. While this isn't your most recent posting, it's the one that spoke to me the most directly. It's a wonderfully seen image, albeit a crop, and appears almost 2-dimensional, with the corrugated iron roofs looking like brush-strokes. The reference to Paul Klee is apposite; I was thinking of Mark Rothko, though it's not quite minimalist enough maybe...

    Kind regards

    Hello Constantino

    This is a bit of a break from your more usual subject matter, but I like it! The yellow shutters sing out against the predominantly monochrome walls, while the painting looks both disturbingly misplaced and the interesting vital focus of the composition. Good stuff.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    I'm a great fan of your portrait work, but you can knock off a pretty decent landscape as well of course! As ever, it's all about the light, and this has drama to spare, especially in the sky. If I were permitted a small gripe, it would be about the over-saturation in the foreground: the blues and reds look a wee bit overcooked to my eyes. But a great shot.

    Regards

    Eh bien ! je trouve qu'il y a beaucoup (trop?) de bateaux par chez nous (Golfe du Morbihan) , mais alors dans le bassin d'Arcachon , c'est encore pire ...

    Hello Gy

    You're certainly playing! And to good effect. The lens and the Silver FX work are excellently achieved, and make the location look wonderfully dramatic. What could I have made of it with my boring old conventional kit...?

    See you soon?
