    Nicely shot, Burak. The way the dark interior frames the opening for the train makes the train extra special. Well done!

    Lovely photo in its simplicity, Peter. The smooth water and colors really set off those tree roots. An effective addition is the reflection of trees at the top that helps to frame your work in a nice way.

    Another fine photo, Nevyan. The tree is perfectly placed to invite the eye to look at the whole scene. I also like the square format! You might experiment with the colors under and around the clouds. You probably captured them accurately, but they look just a tiny bit muddy to me. Super work!

    Beautiful symmetry and darker tones, Chatelier. The point of view is also outstanding. Nice post processing on the sky, too!

    What a lovely place to go fishing. I like the composition with the two men in the lower corner. Well done!

    This has a lovely point of view, Justinas! You might experiment with the sky and trees in the background, as they look an odd color to me, but the photo is really striking with that amazing long exposure!

    Yes, the pixelization from enlargement created some weird artifacts. Nevertheless, I like this old tree and the angle you had chosen from which to photograph it. I suspect this is why photographers all have bad backs, eh Peter? You might try experimenting with idealizing the sky. It is not a lovely blue on my computer, and a little tweaking with color might help. Or try it in black and white? Anyway, it's a fine photo, and enjoyed gazing at it.

    It's hard to resist a good sunset, Jose! This is not only lovely colors, but the composition is also very effective, with the brightest light in a very effective spot.

    I think the plane wing adds some interest to this shot, Neyvan. While it's a lovely landscape and well composed, the wing really helps tell the story here.

    Hey I like this a lot, Clark. The angle of the shadow works well as an introduction into the shot, and the poles keep the eye going quite nicely. We're then satisfied by the mountains in the back. Lovely!

    To experiment with: You might try adding some contrast to get more darks and lights to see what happens. Also, if you do an unsharp mask at a high pixel rate but low percentage, you might be able to bring in more "clarity" if you wanted any more.

    I like it!

    I've been here long enough to see that this idea was, let's say, 'inspired' by another member :) But no matter, that's how we all learn - right? And what's more important is that you have taken the concept and made it work for you.

    Do you still shoot with the Leica, or have you gone 'all digital' on us? Thanks as always for providing much needed highlights here.

    Hi Dan,

    I'm not sure how easy this will be to take, but the quality of your composition is much better than the quality of your equipment. I'm struggling to find any sharp part of this image - the flat metal has some detail but there is a lot of sharpness fall off in the top right and lower left hand corners (which I wouldn't normally expect at that focal length) and the cabling is particularly flat. I think it may be a good time to upgrade to better glass my friend.

    Ron.

    Thanks, I like this photo - I'm looking for ordinary street scenes to jog my memory, and this is good. By the way, if you revisit this place, how about documenting all those people you mention - snake charmers, tooth-pullers, dancing-boys? make a documentary for us, please.

    Great subject. Perhaps you were shy to ask them to pose for a portrait? - but it would have been acceptab le I think, and you could have gotten closer (and thus shown more detail of the teeth, and maybe controlled the overexposure).

    I usually find this style of photograph a little bland but what catches the attention so well here is the combination of linear elements and the luminosity of the sky. Metering snow is not easy so kudos for that too, plus a really nice B&W conversion.

    Very beautiful and poetic!
