BabaCam (2018-04-22):

This looks so peaceful, just the man trying to fish his meal. You wonder why we need so much all the time :-) Excellent compo with the boat to the left leaving enough space in the front to feel the nature and the room. Lots of trees without the leaves still, probably after this warm weekend it looks a little different by tomorrow. All three images are are very nice.


guillaumejm (2018-04-22):

Hello
Yes the end of april is just amazing considering weather conditions : 2 weeks ago we still had snowfall in the jura while this friday in the jura kids were swimming in the lakes ...
Same mood here in your picture

Hallo Claudio!
Here you show us the power of erosion, of levelling the surface of our planet. Even the most impressive mountains one day will be scree and sand ...
A wonderful and impressive scenery!
Greetings! ... and have a nice week!
Frank


Buin (2018-04-22):

Bonjour Jean-Marc!
A wonderful and somehow optimistic series of photos. I like especially the main picture with this obviously floating inflorescence. An amazing effect and nearly 3D effect.
Greetings from springlike Westphalia - and have a nice week!
Frank


Buin (2018-04-22):

Bonjour Claude!
A beautiful and eye-catching photo. I like the "construction" and the play of light and shadow in the picture very much.
Greetings from springlike Germany! Have a nice week!
Frank


Buin (2018-04-22):

Hallo Claudio!
What a magnificant landscape, what a breathtaking sight! I like how you were able to frame this icecovered summits by the green branches of the trees. A great, a stunning contrast.
However, you really shpuld use the possibility of posting panoramas here on PF.
Greetings from springlike Germany!
Frank

Hi Kath,
I really like the secluded aspect of this harbor with it's perfect reflection and workmanlike boats. The FG details of tiny daisies, picnic table and traps add to the feeling of seclusion and usefulness. I too prefer the horizontal view, I wasn't sure why until I read Barbara's comment...it shows the tiny aspect better. For me it's a toss-up between the rowboats and this one. I'm adding it to my choices for a final decision but I'll probably stick with the rowboat since it looks like it has a better chance of winning...and anyone who is so faithful and almost always posts the maximum, deserves recognition. I was pleased to see your night image of your hometown pier was #1 last month.
HLJ, Pat


plimrn (2018-04-22):

Hallo Barbara,
The magic three on the beautiful clarity of the lake. It's a new POV for this month's theme

lovely the head star of that photographer, he looks like an alien. haha.
marvelous view of the bridge I crossed by feet. it was a nice point for suicides as I read in the top, with dead flowers and a signs asking people to call for help before the last act.
nice use of the light, perspective and shapes. I would like to have more time to walk around the town and take more photos. when I was there this spot where you were was filled with people because the marathon.
take care

jorge


borrazopolitan (2018-04-22):

kath

I passed by near this place in a train going to north, I remember some lovely little towns I saw in the edge of the sea.
nice the view of the small port, we can see how they used the islets to build a wall to protect the port against storms. nice details.

take care

jorge

I am curious to know what he was taking in his hands, I suppose it was a bottle of wine, but those black wires around made it to be transformed in an electronic device very big. nice sense of movement and daily life in the series.

take care

jorge


guillaumejm (2018-04-22):

Bonjour claude
Ces tons oranges sont magnifiquement lumineux
Belle prise
Jmarc


ellelloo (2018-04-21):

A beautiful image and a great story accompanying it. Were you absolutely sure that the bottom was flat with no groups, which would have sank the car more or damaged it? This sure is a creative contribution to the theme. The landscape is stunning.
Lasse


ellelloo (2018-04-21):

Hello
It looks like they were filming and this historic boat belongs to the scope. :-) B&W fits perfectly to this.
Lasse


CLODO (2018-04-21):

Hi Barbara

Good play with the light hues of green and yellow and the triangle drawn from the tiny white boats


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-21):

Hello Barbara,
What a precious image of these tiny boats on top of a thin layer of water, as seen from so high up! It is minimalism at its best, well done!
Regards,
Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-21):

Hello Claudio,
It is a beautiful image of this carcass of a boat decaying on the beach. It's a terrific addition to the ToM.
Regards,
Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-21):

Hello Ricardo,
The colors of the small boat in the foreground are quite attractive. The schooner is classy, too. It is a nice addition to the ToM.
Regards,
Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-21):

Hello Elaine,
I love the sight of old, rusting/decaying machinery and I find photos of boats out of the water very attractive. You have a whole series of photos, prettier than one another, combining my two favorite themes. Right on, bravo!
Regards,
Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-21):

Hello Kath,
It's a charming waterfront soaking in the sunshine. The yachts docked look so peaceful.
Regards,
Murat


guillaumejm (2018-04-20):

Bonsoir
Encore un magnifique panorama avec un ciel impressionnant.

BabaCam (2018-04-20):

Eye sore :-) No money, no paint. I kind olf like it, not sure if it would bother me that much but okay if you live next to it, it is maybe different and you also wonder if it spoils the ground etc. Definitely a cool image, love the run-down aspect, nice also the round feel you gave it with the street in the front moving around the curve. Excellent foreground and another very good TOM.


BabaCam (2018-04-20):

Uhhh the waves, they're not easy to handle. This looks like some adventure :-) That's a good image for the recent TOM, love the tiny approach sort of the sea "beats you".


BabaCam (2018-04-20):

This is how I feel, ready for the weekend but not sleeping out but looking around for new adventures. He is my boy too - haha. Love how he runs around in the CI. Kath gave you the right trick, all about white balance. Okay the times are probably over to run around with the grey cards measuring the light unless you're the super pro.

https://digital-photography-school.com/get-your-white-balance-right-in-seconds-using-grey-card/

I had my problems too especially with evening images, they all looked odd if on auto pilot so I started to experiment. Got some good info from a photo magazine. Meanwhile I can also show evening images ... LOL ...

Happy weekend, have fun.

guillaumejm (2018/04/20 20:01:56): Hello
In fact I was not in automatic mode but in sun mode !. As there was no more sun it could explain this dominant green then.
JMarc
guillaumejm (2018/04/20 16:20:14): Thank's barbara, I'll check all that.
one of the pb is that on the camera itself, too small to detect the dominant issue.

Wandering Dan (2018-04-20):

Beautiful late afternoon shot! You picked up the virga nicely, too.

Dan


Wandering Dan (2018-04-20):

Hi, Kath -

There's a feeling of loneliness, loss, ennui. And the flowers balance the boats nicely. The CI and the panorama are OK, but the main image is the one with the punch.

Dan


Wandering Dan (2018-04-19):

Hi, Peter -

Definitely a twist on the TOM! But hey, a boat is a vehicle on (or in this case in) the water. Neat composition and balance. This place is on my bucket list - but I will check the weather first!

Dan


Wandering Dan (2018-04-19):

Great composition, nicely minimalist, and the face adds a human interest story.

Dan


Wandering Dan (2018-04-19):

Nice image. I wonder how it would look if you cut out the sea and sy.

Dan


Wandering Dan (2018-04-19):

I like this one. I've seen a lot of wrecks, but I don't think I've ever seen a skeleton like this.

Dan


feather (2018-04-19):

Do you have your camera on auto white balance? I guess the camera decides the colour temperature depending on the light at the time.
Three excellent shots of Dago.

Well framed image to include the church, Neptune and some beautiful flowers into the composition.
Durham is an ancient city and the narrow meandering streets date back to its origins long before town planning. I guess it just "evolved".
Strange song from your countryman.

borrazopolitan (2018/04/19 23:26:18): kath

the singer was in exile after the military dictatorship put him out in 1968, they only sent him to UK. this would be better than to be inside a jail. the lyrics tells about how isolated, strange and sad he was in UK despite the good aspects of the country, there is a comparison between the brazilian police and the british, the education but the distance of the people, etc.. the UFOS are the only strange aspect in the lyrics I guess. in some aspects typical brazilian need lots of attention and kindness of the others, to feel embraced in some aspect. I am a not typical brazilian. haha.

take care

jorge

feather (2018-04-19):

How odd that some parts of the government don't want this boat to be scrapped. Meanwhile it just sits there being an eye sore for the local people. Maybe it holds some secrets!
Good idea for the ToM.
Kath


guillaumejm (2018-04-19):

Hello
Strange story about this boat!.
It makes anyway a nice subject for the tom.

guillaumejm (2018-04-19):

Hello
crocodiles, sharks, ... not a good place to take advantage of the ocean pleasures :).

No shark fin to be seen fortunately here.

Hello claudio
A wonderful lanscape here with a good mix of river / rocky areas & forest.

mortijo (2018-04-19):

I have seen these in Greenland, in much calmer water and NO crocodiles. Great contribution to the ToM. It is getting more and more difficult to make a choice.
Regards

John


BabaCam (2018-04-19):

That's an original and also interesting TOM. Definitely a huge huge statue, probably also a show-off piece with its size. Leaving away history, I think it is a pretty cool statue/monument, someone was really creative here. Oh man all these competing and sharpening the knifes to show who is best. It never stops, as we all know.


BabaCam (2018-04-19):

The cutest little harbor. If you grow up in this part of the world, you do not rush to work in full trains like I do but yes probably there is other worries like over-fishing. A very nice image, well composed with the lobster traps in the front. The CI works well too. Probably the main image shows the "tiny" aspect best.


saxo042 (2018-04-19):

Hi Frank,

A very well composed picture with the foreground trees framing the landscape behind, with all these shades of green. Interesting too see how far spring has progressed here, but it will certainly take another week (or two) to reach sufficiently north. But I hope the warm weather will affect the "Spargel" production too.

Kind regards
Gunnar


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello Claude,
It is a nice view of this replica of a historic tall ship as she approaches the modern bridge.

FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello JMarc,
This is a nice minimalistic approach to the ToM, I like minimalism and the colors of the sea are pleasant.

Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello Lasse,
The colors of the evening sun and the reflections of the boats are very pretty.
Regards,
Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello Way,
Two beautiful contributions to the ToM! I am slightly partial to the main entry for the beautiful color reflected from the water.

Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello John,
This is an interesting contraption. It's even smaller than an optimist!

FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello Gary,
My, he does look like a Viking coming ashore on his long boat's tender, well seen and rendered!

FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello Elaine,
This is quite an unusual POV, but I like it.
Regards,
Murat


FotoShipshuck (2018-04-19):

Hello Kath,
Here is another peaceful entry for the ToM. I hope to go punting when I make it to Cambridge. The repeating patterns in the CI are its attraction.
Regards,
Murat


guillaumejm (2018-04-18):

Hy kath
A very nice little harbour well protected from the sea.
