in and out the Bullies List…

Funny enough … 3 weeks back I fell into that List for 2 days (not only me) and then wooops “change of heart” I was removed again, but then again, 2 weeks after… another Woops! the guy/girl in the dark pushed me and many others again into that group, or List, or sea or whatever you wana call it! Again! And others…. Ha they were removed! ?????????!!!

The person in charge of that “Group” is apparently not quite sure about that Concept…who should fall into it? Or Not!? Yes! No! no! yes! This! That! this! No That! Maybe it all depends on how they wake up in the morning (bad hair day?:), or a nightmare! I donnow! It seems to me like they’re standing on that bridge in the dark, kicking one after the other into that “group” that seems to grow or shrink daily according to his/her general mood! Or maybe some other reasons that I don’t intend to mention “now” or “yet”… One day you find urself in, next day u’r out… …. how funny! Or Not?
It’s like Hello, join the Club! And Smile you are in the club: these are the Bullies of TL!


Orange Saturation, darkened, sharpened, and level adj from a regular member to the Bullies List! For now! tomorrow (hmmmm donnow)…. Whos………….


Anyway good day:) and good night:)

Hi Suzy,
Ignore that stupid 'bully list', I was on it for about a week or so too - Completely pointless and not worth worrying about. Anyway, good capture! I love the tones and gradients in the sky. The setting sun looks so defined, good job to freeze the person diving into the water too - Looks like they made a great silhouette. The water looks so 'busy' and ripply, almost appears un-sharp as a result, it seems to really reflect the sun well. Text-book composition too, well done my dear :).

Hi Suzy,
A very good timing for this spectacular jump into the water with a nice sunset at the BG.
Nice saturation for the sky with a nice cast on the water.
Fabulous PP work with excellent silhouettes very effective to this not so sharp capture!
A nice action shot!
Good work.

I like your way of falling in Life!
With or without the bullies list, you can see the beauty of nature and share it with us!
This photo is a good example of your artistic sense. The saturation is well done and gives some passion mood at this beautiful view! Excellent composition and sharpness!
Best regards! Annie

Boa noite Suzy Gitana
A very good composition and with your trade mark : strong in colours and mood.
A big smile to life and the respect for the differences.

Hi Suzy

Hello dear Suzy:)
This is an impressive sunset capture. specially the silhouettes and the colors, they are fantastic.
The tones are very nice, and the composition/crop is excellent.
I like your pp work.
best regards and TFS

Hi Suzy,
The silhouetted diver is indeed the highlight as well as the colors of the intense setting sun. The image is smooth and noise-free. Interesting to see a smooth water surface from a distance but rougher water on the b/g. A lovely posting my dear. Best regards...

Yasou dear Suzy!
You capture a unique moment,with a wonderful sunset scene
awesome colours,lighting and a great summer mood!
Have an amusing WE.
Regards and tfs

Ciao Suzy. Spectacular mood and indeed excellent compo. Excinting colours by a special PP work. TFS.


Hi my dear Suzy

All my best wishes


Hi Suzy, The timing was just right for you to catch the diver en route to the golden waters. Well cropped and excellent colours all around. TFS. Murray.
PS Best to keep well away from the forums. Ignorance is bliss i find.

Hello Suzy! Excellent sunset, amazing seascape, ideal light and shadow. Good exposure. Well done!

Hi Suzy,
Wow- timing is everything. You show us quite an artistic scene here, something I could view for a long time. So many details, so much color and mood. Really well composed. Congratulations on this. TFS Julie

Ciao Suzy

This picture reminds me of the days
hot summer here in Brazil!
They are very similar to these games of summer!
I love the colors and your horizon,
High quality and sharpness.
Nice composition and presentation,



hello Suzy,

another of your work that i found similar with Kostas.. immediately i was thinking of him when i opened this :)

what make this sunset shot of yours beautiful because of the 4 peoples all in different direction doing their own things.. wonderful work again, Suzy.. keep up the good work..

after reading your note i was in the list too but after 2 days my name was removed.. i was so suprised but i just kept quiet about it even i was not often here that time and not been posting for sometime.. probably the person who added us don't understand the meaning of it or just want to make trouble.. Scott is right just ignore it.. :)

regards, terry
