Hi Bev.

Great view of this majestic folly. Last time I was there, you couldn't see where one lake finished and the next started - it was all virtually under water!

The exposure looks a bit out - in a nice 'high key' sort of way - but an ND grad filter upside down would have calmed the foreground down a bit and allowed some detail into the grass.

Supe view, though.

Kind regards, Paul.

Hi John.

A stunning photo of bluebell woods. I wondered if you'd used the blur options in PS but I see you've used the 'traditional' method to create this stunning effect.

Regards, Paul.

Beautiful and moody shot. I love the 'grain' and the catchlights as they create the flow of the stairs. Excellent work. Paul.

Hi Gary.

Really nice and sunny shot of one of my favorite creatures. The image is very bright but you've just held back any burn-out and the focus is nicely on the bee itself. The blurred background allows the flower and bee to appear more 3-D. Really nice work. Paul.

Whoa Gilles...! Those steps look like a death trap. How does anyone negotiate them without breaking bones? Excellent, dizzying perspective and the figures show the height / depth perfectlly. Nice work. Paul.

Hi Linzi. This shot reminds me of some that my dad took years and years ago using his old Rolleiflex camera. the slightly blurred edged don't, in my opinion, detract from the image, they make it all the more cute. What wonderful, soft eyes Buddy has. A lovely, mellow and heart-warming image. Paul.

Hi Michel.

This guy looks like he's about to pay the price for getting his last jump all wrong. Great action shot and the semi-smiles on the faces of the spectators suggest they were almost hoing for this unhappy ending...

Excellent work. Paul.

Hi Terry. I really like the way you've used the sweeping curve to split the frame in two. Land and sea in harmony and a few guys trying to catch their tea...
Lovely capture. Paul.

Hi Bev,

Quite an eerie feel to this shot. The movement allows the imagination to run riot. Superb terracotta colourings (presumably typical of the region?) and an excellent piece of almost M C Escher-esque style.

Regards, Paul.
