A lovely array of colours and tones and the peeking sun adds to the atmosphere nicely. I usually find scenes where this is no overwhelming point of focus quite difficult to frame, but your chocie works really well, perhaps also thanks to the amount of detail in the scene (although not overbearing)?

Very Nice colours Dave, the sun adds sparkle.
I took a similar, but not quite as colourful photo on Sunday, but have decided not to use it.

Great colours on your snappers choice. I really like the starburst and the soft focus effect works perfectly.

Autumn colours, interesting light and soft focus - works well.
Love this one Dave. Beautiful colour and composition.
Many thanks for the comments folks :)

Damn it, I had the leaves on the line comment as well...

Great leading lines, and the DoF hits the technique nicely - but the figures make the photo. Nicely composed.

Very nice Dave. I like the way the lines go soft focus and curve away in the background. The two people do add a lot to the shot too.

You're quick off the mark. It will be a long wait for next Thursday :LOL:

I really like this shot. Great leading lines to the two people, nice depth of field and good colours. I hope the leaves on the line won't cause any delays?
Thanks - no delays as the railway is shut for lockdown :(

Cheers :)

Week 47 : Paper

A set of Odhams Press Classics that my Great Uncle bought, we think, in the 1930s. Passed on to me in my teens. I read them all. Passed on to my eldest daughter who went on to get her PHD in English at Oxford.

I don't think I've read any of them (uncultured youf that I am). Quite enjoyed Lorna Doone on telly many years ago (the black & white film from who knows how long ago - I didn't realise there had been a bbc series).
Nicely shot.

How pleasing to see such a uniform shelf full of books and a lovely back story. Nicely captured.
Thanks :)

They look like they've been well used. Read them all apart from most Shakespeare (philistine that I am, I have never being enthused by his work)..
Nice story and shot.

Week 48 : Camera(s)

Two of my favourites from my film camera collection. The little Olympus 35RC and the mighty Fuji GW690. Both superb cameras in their own ways and both still in use.
