Hello Les,

As soon as I saw your title I remembered that you had said that you'd been out near your home taking photographs of these lovely flowers but I see that this is a picture from ten years ago. But what a fine quality photograph it is considering that it is a scan of a colour slide!

Your composition is both excellent and most pleasing to the eye and the light is truly beautiful. I love how the spring foliage on the background trees is so brightly and freshly lit while the bluebells themselves lie in relative shade. The colours are magical and in no way oversaturated and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

A fabulous photograph, especially considering that it has been scanned from a ten year old colour slide.


Kind Regards,


P.S. I'm actually amazed at the quality of this scan. Perhaps that has something to do with Fuji Velvia but I also suspect your scanner and your scanning technique must be very good too. What sort of scanner do you use or was this done professionally?

P.P.S. On another technical topic, are you having problems with this TE website? I've been trying to write this critique for about three quarters of an hour - my text kept freezing then anything I did manage to type was totally corrupted. Whether this has something to do with Microsoft Edge and Windows 10 I'm not sure though I have to admit I don't have similar problems with any other website. In fact, I've just had to close down and restart my computer because the task manager was telling me my memory (all 16 GB of it!) was running flat out at 100%. I'm certain (as are many others) that this website causes many of these problems and it doesn't look like the technical people here are going to do anything about it. And that's a real shame because I'm also sure it's the reason so many good members and good photographers have already left - this place is not half so busy or interesting as it was a couple of years ago. Very sad. :(

P.P.P.S. I hope, Les, that your health is continuing to improve and you're managing to get out and about a little more. And I trust that Gladys is well too.

Kindest Regards,
