Re: Water Age

. Hi JBTaylor; :) Such lovely shots! You made the most of what that special lens can produce. :) Interesting video. I love how you zoom in and out to catch the waterdrops on the leaves …. but, the most special is the part on the red-leafed tree for me towards the end of the video. The music is also ...

Re: Derelict Dwelling

Hi Peter, :)

Derelict it may be but I think as a photographer you created a fine composition; from one door opening to the others, you managed to give a maze-like impression with this shot.

Thanks for sharing,

Re: A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

. Thanks for sharing such lovely and interesting landscape photos of Namibian desert-like land expansions. I enjoyed them as soon as I saw them. :) I love how the B&W photo has been processed so that it is more of an art-work. Those many subtle lines of millions of monochromic shades add to the ...

Re: Ice (open thread)

. What a lovely cat and what beautifully-coloured eyes! Definitely well-concealed from any predator as well as preys in the newly-found camouflage. :D Thanks for sharing, Barry. :) Henry, I remember seeing these shots earlier in other thread, right after you made that trip. I like everything about t...

Cruise ships in the harbours of Sydney, what a beautiful combination. :)

Nicely taken and there's a lot of interest in each frame.

Thanks for sharing, Ossie. :D

Lovely flowers, Sury. :)

Hi David; :D

Beautiful subtle surface details show as the light hits on the translucent petals and the colours are wonderful.

Indeed, the bigger photo is much more impressive.

Re: Spring has Srpung

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Dramatic dance figures are also very telling. Waiting between the takes and adjustments must be hard for the actors/dancers ! :D...

Re: Tamron 15-30mm 2.8

. Thank you, JBTaylor. :D Only a random and ordinary way of working/parking these spools it may be and whichever reason they are there for, the combination of elements is making sense in a rustic way. The colours, the rust, the crisscross straw mat curling around the spools... the composition highli...
