[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The other day I noticed a few funny photo's with *Wallie* and *JohnTulip* drinking greek Mythos beer for our TL friends in Greece:
Constantinous *cstathoulis* & and Vassislis *vsinopoulos*
So, as a business woman a person asks herself what's wrong with our own Heineken :-) right ?

The other day I showed another photo like this:
here my other Heineken
There is some humor in seeing this bottle and there is shame of all the rubbish people just trow
away (in the canal like we see here )
Bye bye

Hi Josine,
this one is better than the previous one IMO.
It is strange to see this bottle here ; )
Good color (green) and frame

Hahaha, Josine,
this is lovely. I like the shot very much, thanks

LOL... Josine!!
There's nothing wrong with your Heineken, but as you can see it can't handle this... it's not strong enough to beat Mythos... :)))))
Seriously now, our friends wanted to show that they think of us and they love Greece... and Mythos... :))
Lovely photo, my friend, with vivid colours but unfortunately sad subject.
Well done and TFS :)


Hoi Josine,
Wat een donders mooie foto! Echt een typisch hedendaagse foto. (te veel kroos op het water en te weinig statiegeld op de flesjes :-)) Zeer mooie compositie met goed kleuren en contrast.

Hi Josine,

I like this shot especially as it is well contained within this great frame, the detail is good as is the composition. Just a shame the bottle ended up in the canal in the first place.

Well done and TFS


Hello Josine !

Nice color for the Saint-Patrick ! (^_^)
Must be a very common seen these days in Irelamnnd this morning, after the big party last night.

It is indeed a shame. You find trash like this anywhere now, even in remote places such as National parks, where you can only have access by canoing. It is a SAD SAD SAD reality.

Thanks for this strong image. I hope you picked it up ....(LOL)

Very colorful Josine, it's a shame it is liter! Good crisp images and very nice frame. Tfs.

An excellent and funny picture Josine. The green colour is superb I just love it. Too bad it is a place where rubbish is thrown, but among the rubbish a beautiful flower can grow and show us that even among bad surroundings sometimes there is beauty. Well done.
Thanks for visiting my photo.
Cheers Joan

The image is quite jarring because you just don't expect the bottle to be there. Diagonal composition is great here ... but it is a little bit static because of the centering of the bottle. But a thought provoking image nonetheless.

I don't like much beer but I always keeps some for my friends. I like better to see it in my refrigerator that in your canal!;) Your photo has of pretty colors and a good composition. Interesting to see the water lily. It saves negligence of the men! Well done!

Hi Josie. Excellent composition. Great contrast between the bottle and the flower. well framed.

I hope you are well and that all the bad experiences are beyond you now.

Hi Joos
Like your other photo in this theme: 'Heineken waste'
have to say this one is very good and so is the frame
Mooi gedaan meisje en dank voor lof aan mijn bootje

Hi Josine,

What an interresting contrast. A well captured shot of such sadness. All in all a great shot.

Hallo josine,
zeer goed idee, heb deze ook liever dan de andere, gewoon perfect, en de margriet ernaast om het nog erger te maken :)

Hi Josine,
A nice study this, an interesting juxtaposition of elements, the green and organic, the partly obscured flower and the, "inorganic" Heineken bottle, and of course, your note. Do I detect a theme of environmental alienation here?!
No really! I like this picture and your other one on the same theme. I think they both make a good point in a nice humorous way.
Thanks and
Best wishes

Good composition and great colors. Nicely done!

Lovely composition Josine with good colours and clarity. Unfortunately the world over we will always have rubbish. The only state in Australia where there doesn't seem to be this problem is South Australia where they offer a five cent refund on ALL containers. TFS
PS Many thanks for your comment on Summer Views

Hi Josine, another empty Heineken floating in the pond! I quite like how it is centred too. The colours are good. Perhaps they are making too many Heineken and don't have enough rubbish tins!!
Good find my friend from way up north,

Good seen, good idea.

Hello Josine,

I like all the green in this picture. What I find is a little bit strange is that there is no waves in the water and the beer bottle should float sideways in the water.

Hi Josine,
This is even better than the earlier one. I like a gal with a sense of humor. Keep these coming!

Sounds like you guys drink lots of beer up there..LOL...
Just like they do down here.. and we are the same.. one finds beer bottles and tins thrown in places like this... not good.... but nice capture here Josine...nice framing too.. well done..


Lovely colours. Great shot Josie


Hi Josine,

Original and curious shot... and funny. Nice colours and excellent compo, great!



Halo Josine, Ek hou van jou foto. Dit is regtig jammer dat mense so mors. Jy sal nie glo hoe hulle selfs in ons nationale park bier bottels, papier en wat nog sommer by die venster uit gooi. Hoop jy verstaan Afrikaans ook. Ek verstaan alles wat jy geskryf het op my kritiek. Tegnies is jou foto ook baie goed, diepte van veld, fokus, beligting en oog punt. Goed gedaan en hou aan skiet!!

The only thing a heineken is good for is to float in the water!. The best is Amstel!!!!!

Great diagonal composition! Hey what can I say... I am an Amstel Fan!

funny photo Josine :)
love the colors and frame you used here
nice work

Very unique, Josine. I like this a lot. I think it's the colors -- the limited chromatic pallate -- combined with the different shapes. Anyway, wonderfully done!

Hello Josine, you are right, people don't think about nature and its fragile equilibrium.

And as you say, it's strange to see that the bottle is doing like the leaves, standing upwright.

Nice close-up and good comp.

Cheers, Yan :)

i didnt se this before...the color green is realy nice here...TFS

I like what you've done here and the message...
It is well taken, pleasing and interesting, thanx, M (*_*)

Great sharpness and amazing greens. Nice composition situating the leaves at the corners. Regards, Yvonne

Very funny! Great picture. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Josine, good creativity. I think it would have been good to see more Heineken. TFS. Vandana

Hi dear Josine;very big but very nice border,this is a beer bottle "cheers" greek Mythos beer,himmm maybe good beer....

Hi Joos,
Although it's bad to see people throw their rubbish away, this is a superb shot with great sense of humour. Perfect compo and except for the overexposured white flower, colors. Too big frame though, at least to me.
When I was in Greece, I tasted "Mythos", too. :) Not better than any Hungarian beer, if I remember well.
Tfs this humorous image, cheerz, László
