To BennyV: Thanks

Hi Benny, and thanks for your comments. I did try cropping the shot (many times!) to just the girl and the wall, and to my eye the resulting shot was rather flat and lifeless. I wish I'd gotten a...

To fanni: Yes!

Elena, you've hit it exactly - I agree that this photo is missing something, and "lifeless" is a very good descriptor, although I'm not sure why either. I've tried different crops, looked at it in...

To Kitty_the_Wild: Thanks!

Hi Elena,
Thanks for demonstrating how that photo can be improved. I knew the photo was flat, but I don't have PSP software - it's quite impressive how much depth and clarity can be added. I guess...

Hi Lakshmi, and thank you for your comments. I took several shots of this subject, and although I'm not entirely happy with any of them, it was an interesting exercise in composition.

To npecanhuk: Obrigado

Hello Ney, and thanks for your kind comments. I'm enjoying your photos of Iguazu Falls - one of the most spectacular places I've ever visited! (Perhaps even more than NZ).

Hi Ana, thank you for your kind comments. Our visit was in mid-winter, so I felt lucky that it wasn't raining or snowing on us - so I can't complain about a cloudy sky!
