Great tyro 2014-07-28 8:16

Hello Rosemary,

What a coincidence! Just last night I wrote a critique on Craig's recent photograph which must have been taken from almost exactly the same viewpoint as yours and it is very interesting to compare the two images and appreciate just how two different photographers can "see" a scene differently and come up with two quite different interpretations!

This is a beautifully colourful photograph in which the boost to the colours is certainly made by the bright flowers in the close foreground and your tiny aperture (f/20) has secured an excellent depth of field and spectacular sharpness throughout.

A fine composition with lovely light, vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite clarity.


Kind Regards,

Smile To tyro: I agree

Hi John - Thanks for your comments on this one. I actually decided to post it after seeing Craig's lovely shot. I was fascinated by the fact that we both took a shot from almost the same spot on the pathway but saw the picture in totally different ways. The other difference is the light, I took this in the morning and Craig later in the afternoon judging by the golden light (I cannot be sure though as hid Exif data says 11.30)

For me the flowers made a lovely touch and gave a feel for the vegetation and landscape that the path traversed.

I'm looking forward to our clandestine puffs

Default Time differences.....

Hi Rosemary,

Mmmm. After a quick check on the good ol' "interweb", I see that Vancouver is "behind" London time by eight hours so it must be "behind" Italy by ten. Most people (myself included) probably don't change the "clock" on their camera when they go on holiday so that would suggest he took the picture at around 21.30 - which, I suppose, is just feasible and would certainly explain the warmth of the light though I would suspect at that latitude it would have been very much darker by that time of day, even in early June.

Yes, I agree, the foreground flowers do make a wonderful foreground in your picture while in Craig's it is the harbour itself which provides most foreground interest. And, hee, hee, do you know something? I looked at yours and really, really studied that foreground and the earth around the flowers too - in search if a stray fag end - but, I'm pleased to say, I could find none!

Take Care.

Kind Regards,

I have a horror of casually dropping fag ends and if push comes to shove I'll carry it away in my pocket or camera bag
