Greetings, Axota. I hope you are having a great summer so far and I hope you find time to relax every now and then.

1) Always remember, even if I fail to say it, my opinions are strictly amateurish.

2) This is a beautiful picture of a beautiful cottage.

3) You did an excellent job removing the clutter with PS.

4)Here is the amateurish part. The color temperature of the house and foliage doesn't match the sky. It seems to me that it should be cooler with a sky like that. Such seems to be the case often with HDR. I'm assuming this is HDR. If it is not, I'll blush, take to heart the age-old advice about assuming and move on with my life (to make more mistakes.)

5) Have a nice day.

kazem shokataba~~~Thanks for the nice comment Kazem

Sigh~~~If it sits well in your view Si then I am delighted. Thanks for the affirmation.

Roger-11~~I take much encouragement from your kind appraisal, many thanks ;>)

zahniulli----Much appreciated Ulli ;)

pivatana~~~Always a pleasure to receive your evaluation Holger ;)

۞₪๑ .Яεηάtα.K. ๑₪۞~~~~It's such a pleasure to visit your gallery Renata..I'm pleased you like my latest offerings! A big special thanks for the Y* and L

Dezső Biczó~~~~First, I greet you warmly Dezső. Thank you so much for your generous is indeed an honour to be amongst your favourites!

Manol Manoman~~~Greetings Manol---I am most grateful for your kind words and generous praise..The Y* means a lot to me!

BritPlom---Hello Francois ;) I am really glad that you like this presentation..It was the wrong time of day for taking photos..Harsh bright light was too much.. However, I was able to inject a bit of contrast and colour using normal post processing in Elements6. HDR was not used in this instance.

M-Karimi۞محمودکریمی, 5~~~~~Howdy Mahmoud ;)..Your appreciation is most valued, many thanks.

JoelleGiannoni~~~Hi! Joelle...Should you ever reach my regtion you can be sure of a warm welcome ;) I hope youi get as much pleasure out of your new camera as much as I have had with my own DSLR.. You must tell me how things are going!

KhoiTran~~~~I treasure your numerous visits and generous praise my friend, thank you for dropping in!

Geezer Vz~~~~A warm welcome Guy ;>) Your comments and opinions are essential to provoke some meaningful feedback, I applaud your honesty and respect your opinions my good friend..It will not surprise you therefore that my reply will be equally forthright!

As for amateurish, I hold my hands up and plead guilty your honour, I am indeed strictly amateurish and intend to remain so as long as I breath life and I hope never to be accused of professionalism. Being an amateur permits me much artistic licence resulting in the flamboyant individualism for which my snapshots are well known.

I am not a big fan of HDR, however, I do enjoy the editing processes..All my HDR shots are tagged thus!

In this case, HDR was not used to enhance the image, only a touch of PS...I don't really need an excuse to edit my photos Guy and I freely admit to manipulating many of my shots. I love the amazing results which can easily be obtained!

It seems that many of my visitors, thankfully, seem to enjoy the bright colours too. I will never post dull boring images and I try to select photos which are pleasing to my eye in the hope that viewers will enjoy the shot too!

I know that you liked this photo and that fact is much appreciated..I hope you have a big chunk of humble pie ready to consume! Please don't choke on it because I want you to return to view my gallery again!

You were right about the colour temperature, but for the wrong reasons! The ambient light conditions were all wrong that day..and noon was entirely the wrong time too!

To you all, I express my sincere gratitude for your visits, precious comments, your endorsements, yellow stars and most importantly, for taking the time to look!

Kind regards :)


Geezer Vz on June 6, 2011

AXOTA, I'm sorry. I was wrong. Please forgive me. Those words roll off my tongue so easily because I have to use them so often. I'll try not to make assumptions about HDR again. Aside from the color temperature not seeming right to me, I thought this was an excellent picture and you did an excellent job with post-processing.

Looking back at my comment where I said Here is the amateurish part, I was meaning to convey my opinion was amateurish, not your work. I consider you an accomplished photographer as I'm sure most everyone that visits your gallery does and I look to your work for inspiration.

Best wishes and happy shooting. Guy

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on June 6, 2011

There is absolutely no need for an apology Guy, I enjoyed your feedback! I only wish others would be so open..conversations would be so much livelier!

I am flattered by your opinion of my photography Guy, but to be honest, I am privileged in living near some pretty awesome scenery, I merely press the shutter...I much appreciate your input my friend!

Kind regards ;)

i think it's a great picture, i like it and i invite you to post it on the old traditional houses, if you don't mind. greetings, Elena :)

other1_f on September 4, 2011

thank you very much, AXOTA! favorite and like!!

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on September 4, 2011

other1f~~~You flatter me too much _Elena;)) it is not good for my ego..I can feel my chest swelling with pride ;) Many many thanks!


other1_f on September 5, 2011

Dear Jim, i think you fully deserve my words. I am a sagitarius, people often accused us of being too brutally honest in telling our opinions, so... if I say something, means I really believe it's the truth :) I really am impressed of your pictures, and if I know how to make a list of favorite photographers (maybe you can tell me that), you would be definitely among the 5 or 6 people I met here and that I am fond of their pictures. have a nice week, Elena :)

Sandy065 on September 12, 2011
