Re: The Past Re-Lived, June 2021 – Iggy Tavares

Hi Paul, Further to your suggestions, I have cropped the original image, keeping more of the stairs in the image. I cropped some of the annoying banisters off too and went for a more symmetrical rectangular look. Look forward to your comments. Best wishes, Iggy Iggy, I really like this image and I ...

Re: RANKIN's Great British Photography Challenge - starts TODAY

This week, I did a catch up on episodes 3 & 4 of RANKIN's Great British Photography Challenge. Having got to used to the rushed format of some 4 tasks per show, I rather enjoyed these last two episodes. The 6 contestants put together a final portfolio of images displayed on a wall that they wer...

Re: Camera Equipment Insurance

Hi Tina, You may have explored this already, it's worth checking with your current contents insurer to see if they will insure them outside the house. This is something I have been doing for a number of years - although I have never had to claim so don't know outcomes! I have had to buy separate ins...

Re: New Photography Show on BBC4

I can't say I agreed with the judges final selection(s) - Maybe I didn't understand the brief :) I thought Paul would have been a worthy winner! He embraced feedback, took on and excelled in genres that were outside of his comfort zones and produced a strong portfolio. Georgie for me would have been...

Re: New Photography Show on BBC4

Did many people see this? As a comparison to "Master of Photography" it was a vast improvement. Im not keen on the combative style of those knockout shows where a contestant leaves each week. Certain things Rankin said last night felt like he was acknowledging that. Much better to mentor ...

Re: Worm Moon March 2021

Well done on capturing so much detail! My favourite is the 4th one. Brings to mind an Instagram photographer called cosmic_background who creates some amazing moon images. Im not sure how to link his page but you can lookup his username. Thanks Paul, I looked at Andrew's Insta page, some really gre...

Re: Lilly

Nice one! I really like the contrast between the de-saturated petals and the coloured ones. What would make it even stronger for me is reducing the green hue of the leaf in the front of the frame to the same as the leaves in the background. Also you may want to play with the saturation of the top pe...

Re: Hyacinth

Ron, great attempt, when I first looked at it, it reminded me of florescent squids :) - but that's just my imagination! I like the way you have chosen to eliminate the background, and the main stem of the plant, this takes it from being a straight forward shot to the start of something arty. Looks l...
