    Hello Christine

    A sad image, perhaps made more so by the wise choice of monochrome. Well-observed moment, capturing an expression that tells its own story. Or maybe he's just thinking about football...

    Kind regards

    Hello Elaine

    A black and white street scene: just my cup of tea. Beautifully observed, with just the child aware of your presence, and the others completely absorbed in the work. Composition is excellent too, using thirds very effectively. Nice.

    Hello Gy

    I like this series: monochrome of course, and Gert's Nothing Special (aka street photography), which is right up my street! Here it's the framing and composition, and distance between people that attract my attention.

    Hello Jean

    My near neighbour today. And both of us are in Italy, albeit on opposite sides of the country! Love the light in this shot: crystal-clear whites that sing, and the water of the harbour reflecting the blue of the sky. Nice.

    Hello Gert

    Another of your (g)oldies. 50 years on, the photograph gains poignancy, historical resonance and bla bla. At the time I suppose it wasn't a time-capsule! Not pin sharp, but as a scan of an image made 1/2 a century ago, who cares?

    Hello again Gy

    I'm pretty sure R. and I walked down this street, not far from our hotel I think. The Christmas vibe seems slightly surreal in miserable February, but that makes it interesting. BTW, did you recognise the girl in my last posting??

    Hi Kasia

    Looks like I'm not the first to work it out. You're looking north. Sun rises in the east(ish), sets in the west(ish). So if this isn't a P'shop manipulation, you must have managed a double exposure... I don't know how you do that with a digital camera. With film you could over-ride the wind-on to capture 2 images on one piece of film. But to get the sun so exactly spot on ain't easy... I've got it: you threw an orange in the air!


    Kind regards

    Will

    On second thoughts, you're actually looking south from across the Yamuna River. I still stick by the orange theory, though!

    Hello John

    A damp but still pretty shot of this popular, indeed famous corner of Bruges. Of course this is the Bonifatiusbrug (surprised you didn't identify it in your note!) which even in the rain looks great. Here's my (predictably black and white) version of the place, taken in similar conditions, although it wasn't actually raining at the time!

    Hello Ian

    I remember Denman well from the time we lived in Newcastle, and I've certainly visited this pub!, Not a lot seems to have changed in the intervening years. Although I'm a bit of a pub afficionado, we were primarily visiting Denman for the other local alcoholic interest, namely the Upper Hunter wineries. Your image brings back some good memories.

    Hello Mark

    I'm surprised no-one else so far has seen fit to comment on this rather superior image: perhaps because it's not the run-of-the-mill fare usually served up on this site these days. I love b/w photography, even in this digital age, and this example exploits the strengths of the medium very well. I'd have expected you to say you used a red filter; but the effect is superb: for me it almost feels as if it's under water...

    Regards

    Great minds think alike: see my upload next door to this one! Lovely moment for a candid shot, lovely light, lovely ladies. I also like the slightly edgy composition, pushing the girls right down to the bottom of the frame.

    Hi Gert
    Indeed there is a lot happening in this street. You would think that food and garbage don't go together but, in fact, they are often two different aspects of the same process. Well timed to capture the man wearing bright orange trousers throwing stuff in.

    Hello Gy

    Still at it, then? I haven't been able to log on for months, and have pretty much lost enthusiasm for this site... I echo Gert's comment about the slight under-exposure, and agree that it works really well: who needs bleached highlights?

    Hello Kasia

    Good heavens: a pretty postcard! And very pretty, too. The colours are almost overwhelming, and if I didn't know you better, I'd be thinking that you gave Nature a little helping hand! Super shot as a conventional but thoroughly superior landscape. Thought about maybe 1/2 stop less exposure (which would beef up the saturation even more, so maybe not!)?

    Kind regards

    Hello Mariusz

    Without the reflected light, this would be a pleasant enough urban scene, but with it, it becomes significantly elevated. If I wanted to sound pretentious I might refer to its potential symbolic implications. But I don't! Suffice to say that it's a fine photograph (with maybe too much roadway included in the foreground?)
