Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 4th January, 2014)
Touch the foot
Excellent photo, looks beltin in monochrome.
Mesnes Park is coming back to life and becoming popular again, let's hope the vandals etc. keep away. Nice pic again, prefer colour personally though.
Family Tradition.....very nice Dave...cheers!!!
Who is the young lady?
Once again super pic.
Anne: That's my eldest daughter - visiting home for Xmas :)
Touched it's foot many times, done nowt for me! Why black and white?? colour brings photos to life! BW went out along with BW TVs years ago.
Great processing in this shot, Dave!
Garry, your uninformed comments show you up again. Any photographer, whether favouring colour or black and white, will tell you that images in the latter teach you about lines, patterns, composition and technique.
Dave is most certainly an expert in his field, and you would do well to be less critical!
For me the composition was all about the triangle formed by the statue, my daughter, and her shadow.
As for the black and white - I like it. No other justification needed :)
Excellant photo. Brings back lots of happy memories. Agree with all the above comments about how good he picture is.
Oh happy memories of the magic shoe, polished by myself, as a youngster, then my children, and now by my grandchildren!
good picture ,well done
Don't understand jod's comments..but he understood mine.
IT'S a matter of opinions, all I'm saying is I personally prefer Colour as apposed to BW.
Has he had a new shoe since I last gave it a rub.
You can make a wish by proxy if you watch this video.
I'm with Garry on this one, it would have been much better in colour.
Garry, I agree a lot with your comments about "colour bringing life to a picture" see:
to see what I mean.
However, sometimes colour can be distracting when the "life" (and, dare I say it? - "the soul") of the picture is represented by such things as form, shape, contrast, texture and other aspects expressed by Jod, IMHO.
There`s that man again! brilliant picture Dave..brings back so many happy childhood memories.
Nice shot Brian as for b/w some shots look better in b/w and this is one of them as long as your happy with it that's all that matters.
Jean; About whom are you referring? Are you dry in Mach.?
Neil; Not seen those photo`s before; there`s been many comments re b/w versus colour on previous P-a-D`s.
Many, many years ago I too rubbed the famous foot. The week after I won £17 on the Pools Coupon. But then the week after that I got done for speeding..Just can't win! Lovely photo...
Jean, don't listen to Ernest.
Yes Ernest, many comments re b/w, made some myself. Interestingly the argument for/against monochrome is complex; it's not ...er "Black and White"
You could never get a sky like that in monochrome.
Ernest,there`s only one man on the photo !
Yes we are dry in Mach,bad in Aber.
Thanks Jean; thought you were referring to a writer of a comment.
Roy H ??? It is in monochrome.
Ernest you thought wrong AGAIN.
actually it's more atmospheric in black and white because during dark winter days that's how everything seems, and I don't know the first thing about photography!
It takes you back to the days when the park was a pleasure to walk in
I have given it a wide berth for years because of the unsavoury reputation it got.
Must start going back again though.
