    I don't know if you remember me... :-)
    Just had a look at TE. I might come here one or twice a year... And I saw your 10 years anniversary photo. 10 years?! In this world of fleeting moments, where we surf from one social media to the other, it speaks volumes.
    So... let me congratulate you.
    I hope you are happy and that life is good with you...

    Hi Tomek,

    The soft tones combine with geometric delight in this shot. I especially like the POV and how you captured the shadows and slivers of light therein. It is a dreamlike shot, and I would like to walk forever down this long corridor with the heavens above.

    Well captured.

    Before coming and stamping my comment here, I took the liberty to browse your other works. Frankly, anyone shooting with her heart and mind of what she is seeing passionately, you can't go wrong expressing what you are seeing. Panning this young cyclist as he is crossing the road shows your creative mind in depicting his movement, thoughtfully.

    Amazing lighting, with an eerie effect definitely palpable. I like the point of view here and the way the high hill forms a backdrop against the sky. Very well done.

    Francesco,

    Wonderful tawny colours with a great perspective of the old building, nicely off centre. I like the depth of field here and the way the cut hay wends away into the distance. The interesting sky complements. Very nice work.

    Aaaaaaaaaah!
    Simple: one of the best photos I have seen of wresting. Period.
    The timing, the framing are simply perfect. The expression of both men say it all that is to say. Incredible moment.
    But I have to say that technically speaking, it could be a little bit better. There is a white halo around the nose of the second man. And some strange zones here and there, probably because you have "blackened" the background. But, I might be wrong.

    One of those cases where I don't need - nor want - the eye contact. She's looking outside, but I see the rain forming big "X" on her eyes, like if the weather was trying to prevent her to see.
    Well... I'm just playing here! :-)
    I might have been tempted to crop the left side and make it square with the space mostly in front of her eyes. But, it is difficult to resist such a beautiful blurry and creamy red... ;-)

    One of the first thing I was always doing when I was active in TE was to go and check the first photos posted by a photographer. Sometimes, it was surprising. In your case, the first photo is a preview of what will come next. You take photos of children. And, though it is "easier" to do take their photos - children are easier to approach - it is more difficult to take "good" photos of children. Most of the time, you achieve to avoid the clichés. Here is a good example, though not your best. There is something in those eyes who's looking straight in your face, a "Mona Lisa" kind of smile, that makes it good in my opinion.
    One lecturer at our local photo club said that the background is of the utmost importance. Here, it is indeed great.
    Technically, it is excellent as well. I might only try to darken a bit the wall over the shoulder on the right. There is a strange artifact there.
    A late welcome in TE! :-))

    I came here to find that specific photo. Walking in Barcelona, I found another specimen of that species: the sculpted elephant! :-) Mine was standing on his (her?) trunk though! Sadly enough, I had no time to take a photo, and it would have been difficult since it was night time. Nevertheless, in seeing that elephant, I thought immediately about yours. And about the difficulty to make a creative photo with what is already a piece of art. You achieved it by your point of view, your wide angle use, your play with the white, washed out, background, and your framing.

    I was sure I had left a 'critique' in there, but it must have been in the old time, before the deleting of all your photos. Well... It's my pleasure to write another one! :-))

    Hello Teresa!
    I little visit from me. :-)
    This photo made me smile. It's a wonderful, well executed, extremely well framed photo. I might wish a little bit of space behind the head of the boy, but I am simply nitpicking. A perfect diagonal that direct the eyes. The background is also perfect and interesting. A myriad of faces!
    Very, very good photo Teresa!
    Claire
    P.S.: I hope everything is going fine for you!

    I rarely come in TE. But, once in a while, it happens. Today, I open TE and that photo was in the welcome page, in the "Feature photos" section. Well... congratulations! ;-) A very well deserved recognition.

    I don't know if you remember what I wrote more than once about your photos. That though they might not be the most "beautiful" ones, they are the ones that we remember. Like for this photo. I do remember it since the first day I saw it, I think it was in 2006...

    Your photos... Maybe (only maybe) not the "eye-catching" type. Better. They are of the "soul-catching" type...

    This is good Sham. The outline of the islands neighboring on the way to Maiga Island, with the cerulean or azure green sea along the way, with a view of its sea bed of lively corals and marine lives.

    One of the rare case where I would go for the same picture without the human presence! ;-)
    Perfect point of view. Wide angle at its best. Very beautiful palette of grays. To my delight!

    Looks much better or more creative than some covered bridges elsewhere. I like scene such as this: rural, bucolic with the signature green of rice field. As photo also paints a thousand words, the photographer's words actually count for much and definitive.

    You too Ben, stay on the trail and when you don't, do remember how to get back ya.

    Hi Urs,
    I like very much editorial related photos. It tells how thing is elsewhere and unlike the "I was here" photo which is generally the " shoot & go" theme of guided tourists. This is a thoughtful composition exposing the winged friends milling around leftovers offered by the temple's devotees.

    Salam Latiff,
    It has been a long time my friend. I see you are still trekking/walking and getting good photos along the way. Refreshing tones and colors and saturated as always. You must have had climbed up the knoll to have this better perspective my friend.

    They posed or not, I wouldn't want to go face off with any of them. Their sarongs really in contrast with their black uniforms but most of all, they have all the sweetest of smiles.

    This lane looks familiar. Sugarcane countryside with its rolling low hills delineated with working lanes and checkered lots. I didn't feel I was in a Malay state when I was there then.

    I wouldn't have known this photo was taken by a PHD camera. Detail and colors is good and most like,a Dslr would have produce the same result. I am guessing, sooner than later, you might even upgrade your current P&S to a better version yes :)
    Good luck shooting.

    Salam my dear friend, this a bucolic scene and pretty closely related to the wide green rice vista of Kodiang. I believe the green is the dominating colors of Kedah and Perlis by this time. I also like the two motorbikes parking side by side. Personally, Kedah is home to the breakneck bikeracers burning rubbers on some city streets.
