Judy, I don't believe it. Someone who actually manages to be away for so long and then come back. Well, it gives me hope that someday I will be posting again. An interesting shot for your reappearance. Grainy black and white and one of those shots that make you wonder where the photographer was standing. That's always good. Hope we'll see more of each other's works in future.
What a lovely composition combining all those layers in a very classic but pleasing manner. I actually count six layers that all seem almost independent of each other. So good that the roof of the barn doesn't touch the island, That adds depth to the photo. Very nice colours also - from the thumbnail I almost suspected extra saturation, but they do look quite natural.
Wow, extremely well done. The two obviously fit together like hand in glove. I only wish the thumb hadn't been so visible.But both photos are superb and the merge is perfect.
Very nice abstract rendering with a superb framing. I actually like it when it is quite impossible to judge the scale. This could be a few square inches and it could be a lot more - or even less I guess.
As an experiment it is quite interesting, I guess. But this kind of extremely shallow depth is usually used to accentuate something in the image. It is not the yellow wheel because that is already slightly out of focus. It can only be the sign on the right. But is that interesting enough to merit the attention? Especially when the actual POV of the train stealls all the attention? Sorry, this is my reaction, but full smiley for the extraordinary choice of motif and point of view.
Oh, how very nice that someone finally posts a spring shot of something other than flowers and bees for my new group theme. This adds the birds to the bees, so now we are really getting somewhere. Nice little strip from "life in spring". Well done, Frank. Lucky that Dingo didn't jump in and break up the romance.
I just wanted to say that I really like the postprocessing you did here. It is similar to what I experimented a lot with last winter. And it makes me want to continue with it. So thanks for the inspiration. And incidentally, I believe it enhanced the scenery. Very pittoresque.
Well done to get below the person and capture boy/man and kite in such excellent fashion in a relative close-up. Very colourful and well balanced. Maybe you could have cropped just a little bit higher since those bricks don't really add to the scene.
Wow, I really like this and am surprised it hasn't been getting more attention. The colours and the mood are fantastic. Although I like your framing I think it should have been narrower on this one. It kind of steals the show.
Nice image, Frank. And that jet plane in the sky makes it a comment on modern transport, doesn't it? Fast and slow. But I would have cloned those reflections too far from the sun and I think I would have cropped a bit higher to leave out the impression of beach in the front. Just sea, ship and sun - if you see what I mean.
