Picture, If You Will...


I Wish I Had Taken That!

Style used to be an interaction between the human soul and tools that were limiting.
In the digital era, it will have to come from the soul alone.

A tree trunk.  And some flowers.  That's all.

Canon EOS 10D - Digital

Amazing capture.  Colours, sharpness, moment, bokeh - the real thing.  One might complain about the clipped wings, but surely that's only a minor distraction?

For a discussion of the meaning of bokeh, please see Ken Rockwell (an external site with a tremendous amount of information on the art of photography).

Hasselblad 500C

Composition, palette, location, and subtle yet purposeful consistency in styling/wardrobe and lighting combine to make this a very strong fashion image.

Spiral II

Canon Elan 7E

A limited number of colours, no distracting elements and repetition.  A strikingly simple image.  Well done, or should it be said, well found and executed?

January Night at the Amusement Park

The light first caught us; the more we looked, the more we saw.  The snow adds to the scene.

I'd like to put in a word here for the site where I found these photos, www.photo.net.  It seems to be run by photographers for photographers and displays hundreds of photos - I've only shown a tiny sampling here.  Most photos are peer critiqued with comments such as the following about the photo shown immediately above:

I'm not one to effuse over a photograph, but this does something to me.  The subject, the loneliness and cold depicted, bring to mind staggering off from a party after one drink too many, trying to clear my head.  No one comes by to help, ... no company ... ample time to minutely study the empty chairs and tables as [I] struggle against spinning out.  This picture brings out that kind of detail - banal in itself, but evocative in the extreme.  A great picture (for me) of one of those - thankfully rare - "life" situations.  In the distance [I] can still hear music playing and the distant sound of voices...

The comments provide as much enlightenment as the photos at times...
