Mucking about

I've played with some photos I took on holiday.

What do you reckon? ok, interesting? good?, flop?

I like the first one very much! Do you mind if I add that I think it would be even more stunning if you had cropped it (cutting away the house and the road only leaving the pier)? The fourth picture is just simply gorgeous.

They look like old-fashioned postcards that used to be on sale decades ago ... rather nice, in a gentle sort of way

Carin - not all, I'll have a play
joanna - that was what I was trying for. ta

I agree with Carin about cropping to leave the pier.

I like the penultimate picture in b&w. Somehow it accentuates the shapes of the plants and trees, and they stand out in their own right. The eye is not distracted by colour.

They're all definitely picture postcards though :)

Black and white photos are always good. I really like the sepia ones as well.

Funnily enough they remind me of my parents holiday photos from the 50s - and that's not an insult. They have a lovely nostalgic feel.

Right, you're probably sick of my comments by now. Offski.

Whew, lots of perspective in these photos; I like them very much. What's interesting about the second one is that most people (I think) would zoom in on the market, but the first thing you notice (through Pete's eyes) are the looming buildings.

I need more of that perspective from an agoraphobic point of view... the people are incidental to the place. And places are always interesting.

mo - nice to see you back. the effect was what I was after.

Diddums - if you check here

there is a photo with more people in it.

I'm not big on people!

I saw that one, but thought you might feel that way. :-) Most of your shots are of nature and buildings. Most of mine are too, come to think of it.
