    I feel like I'm there! The motion blur just drags your eye all over this composition. I really like the way that crazy Mr. Peanut in the left corner has his view directed at the tourists in the middle. He's smiling down on those poor souls stuck in the middle of his wild territory. Great capture!

    The photo is good- the blur on that building has a very moody feel to it, and the back view of this man has so much to look at. His head especially. The tip of his elbow might have been nice to catch too, but it’s a small thing. Now, I don't know how committed you are to the writing on your frame- but I find it can distract from the work. Just something to consider. Good luck on TE! Welcome!

    I like the initial idea for this- solid geometric frames can be so wonderful! You are just almost there- I can't help wishing that there was something for the viewer's eye to grab on to. At the moment, there is a great struggle to hold on to some idea of what’s going on- we can see part of it is closer, but it denies us detail since it’s out of focus. Keep going with this subject if you can- I think it has great potential. Keep up the good work!

    Really nice. I love that little detail up top where the two little strands curve a little bit- like a wave. The colors are lovely, it's nice and sharp, and the compo is working for the most part. Nice job!

    Oh I know this place. Those clouds look so low! I'm all for these empty spaces, and this is very spacious. It might be improved with just a bit more sharpness- the clouds in particular, but it's hard to tell. That bike just floats in the middle of this compo. Good work!

    Texture for sure. Lots of it. I like the atmosphere- its like some other planet. There are weird parts that come into light for little moments in the background there. Its interesting. But the way that blue sky is reflected in the water in the cracks- wonderful! Nice job!

    This is quite beautiful really. The folds and ripples in the man's clothing feel sooo soft against those bricks. He is such a giant! It’s like he's walking on a cityscape. And that print on the bricks is just the thing to catch the viewer’s full attention. Great great job.

    I really enjoy this shot of the bridge. The cables create such a grid on the right side- which visually is something I just love. Your frame is just rushing all over with lines. I did a workshop real quick just cause I was curious what this would look like with a bit of moodiness*. Nice work.
    * never mind about the wkshp. It's been a while and I'm not so sure if I don't remember how or if its just not an option. Ha. Oh well.

    You have such strong work! So many little slices of color pushed up against each other. Its hard to figure out what you're looking at- such a lot of detail. Good job on catching this and presenting it in a way we haven't seen before!

    I'm glad you're taking time to notice these details. Things that you have to bend over to see usually have quite a bit of beauty and make it worth your while. Those water lines on the sides are so wonderfully smooth feeling. I think there might have been a better way to angle/crop/balance this, but just keep trying different solutions and i'm sure you'll come to one that is absolutely solid. Keep up the good work! Keep looking!

    This is such a beautiful landscape! The contrast between the straight, man-made lines and flat shape of the walls and that of the rugged rocks and tossing water is great. That copyright is a tad too big and distracting I think maybe. Just watch it on your next photos- it's best to keep it simple and flawless imo. Good job on this nature shot!

    So empty! Cities can have such a hard, spacious feel to them. The squares of the building and sign help keep that blank impression. These industrial objects feel so deserted without humans in the scene. I'm glad you caught this kind of paused moment in time. I'm tempted to say that it might be a bit improved if you cut out that partial curb and tree on left. It might just polish that crisp, industrial thing going on. Nice job!

    Hey Dan,

    I was at a boxing match in Montreal last night, so this image makes me want to have been closer to the stage and try my hand at these kinds of shots. I agree with you that the flying sweat add to this image.

    Have a good weekend - Paul

    Salut Toni,

    Franchement interessante cette photo qui me fait découvrir ce pont pour la première fois. L'idée d'avoir un grand navire dans le cadrage est très bonne car elle nous la possibilité de percevoir la réelle proportion de ce pont. J'apprécie également le ciel qui ajoute de la texture à toute la composition.

    Bonne fin de semaine - Paul

    Hello John,

    As you know the name of this cove brings a very different feeling that your photo offers. It's nice to see it from a point of view of beauty and calm. Nicely chosen point of view and frame.

    Have a nice weekend - Paul
