Hey, Artwall, I just had a quick run through your sunset series. Very nice. Have to dash out now - will return later and have a better look :)

Thanks Roberto, as I'm sure you've noticed, mono is my signature style. Greetings from the UK!

Yes, thanks for linking me to this - another example of your brilliance, and therefore you deserve to have a unique shot, now that the textured bridge surface has been covered. Ian

Thanks for you over-generous accolades, Ian... my gast feels a little flabbery!
(now there's a phrase for the mechanical translators to chew on!!)
Ian Stehbens, on January 9, 2008, said:
Nothing overstated at all. The image speaks on your behalf. While the translator may be a little a-g(h)ast, at least you don't need a translator to communicate with me - after all it was Plymouth that sent the vowel sounds to USA and Plymouth that sent the east-enders with their English to the east-end of your world.

Well, compliment bashfully taken :)
I'd never thought about the accents before but, yes, it makes sense :)

Just to let you know I've been talking to a friend across the Channel about you, mate. Ian
As I have been looking for new uploads from you and you have been quiet, away or busy, I chose to revisit your earliest pictures which were uploaded before we began corresponding. I am so glad I did for it has been a delight to see this and others in your earliest postings. Not only do I appreciate a picture of a familiar place, but I am impressed by your composition and especially your use of the foreground furniture. It makes it a great picture. Highton-Ridley has one called Journey's End Awaits which is highly regarded and which is quite similar in concept to this work of yours, Stéphane. I do recommend a look but as I am not sure how to make a link work yet, let me say he has tagged it with both "railing" and "clock". The others in your early set are excellent too.

Thanks very much Ian :) I'll have a look at Stéphan's work when I can find it...
As regards embedding a link, the way you do it is like this:
[some text to display as the link] (the url of the photo, you can copy it from your browser's address bar when you're looking at it)
e.g. [Journey's End Awaits] (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/2836486)
The above are not treated correctly (I've done that so you see them!) because of the space between ] and (.
Without the space the e.g above is as follows: Journey's End Awaits
Hope that helps :)

Effectively great work, as said friendly by Ian !
(Thanks a lots, Ian !)
You're a wonderful professionnal, H-R, and your web site is really well designed, like your photos !
I really feel an amateur when I see such a good job , but I learn each day and follow my dream, trying to improve my collection.
highton-ridley, on January 15, 2008, said:
Thanks for your kind compliments Stéphane. I'm like you: learning, learning, every day is a schoolday :)
A real old-time pro who reviewed my work answered my question as to how I could improve by saying "get out, take more pictures, see what people say and then ignore them!" - I think he meant it in a nice way :)

Realy beautiful shot..! Wonderful contrast between the railing and the ground for the chromatic difference and also for the form difference.! Very well composed with a superb point of view.! So Well done.! Skyhunter
highton-ridley, on May 28, 2009, said:
Hi Skyhunter good to hear from you again :)
It was one of those shots that when I saw it I just knew it was the only shot for that scene. I was glad to have found it!
I was lucky with the wood they'd used for the bridge floor. It must have been an exotic one because of the difference between the colours in the grain.
It was that difference in colour that allowed me to bring out the stark contrast, enhancing the shapes of the grain.
If it hadn't been for that, the rest wouldn't have worked nearly so well.
Hey, do u want to join my site / follow my blog? I chat about all sorts of stuff that I know you'd like. Give it a shot? my blog
