D3, 24mm G 1.4
1. Good viewpoint of a stark, slightly dated (aren't we all?) building.
2. Brave new world gone...maybe not where she wanted. Nice pp.
3. Great framing and light. Interested and skeptical.
4. Reverent. The tone and grain strengthens this in my mind.
5. That passed us by too. Grain and composition cool. she leads the eye to JFK and RFK.
6. Just before the war? He doesn't look like a bootlegger? The old man's resume actually makes the rest of the family look staid and reserved. Great framing. "Where are they now?"
7. Darkness sums it up. Extinguished.
8. Solitary thoughts.
9. Brilliant composition!
10. Where were you; where was I?
Matt, Thanks Very Much For Your Thoughts & Comments! I Always Value & Appreciate Them!
And Now A Tribute To One Of Our Own! I Just Received My Copy Of Matt Driscoll's Brand Spankin New Book & I Must Say It Is Awesome!!! Congrats My Friend!
Very cool ... Congrats to both of you!
Steve: Nice photos. The first and second ones are a little over the top. If this was Thailand, I'd expect a photo of some race track girl holding it. I don't have a copy yet! It looks like you got a hardback? Thanks for your help and generous comment.
Whoosh and swoosh. Cheers, Matt

All are great, and i share most of Matt's comments.
#5 quoted above might impress me the most, sort of a memory time tunnel created by your brilliant composition.
And with beautiful photos. The author have found his official photographer for all PR material!
Matt, yes, congrats!
Got me a soft cover (i tend to prefer them for this format) this morning -they say it'll take a couple of weeks to show up here.
An hour by the Cathedral Square (People around the Cathedral 1/1)
Some have their hands well occupied:
Some are posing...:
Some are shooting... alone:
and some others, exchanging views:
Some are looking up:
Some are looking back:
Some, heading straight ahead:
And for others, contemplating is enough:

Hey, these guys saw it all, and much more, in just one hour.
Guess that over the last 9 centuries, they would have quite some stories to tell...
Great photos again, Steve. Will this never end?
Very charming, Corlan
My Nikons are in another city, so I can't keep up with you guys. Not at the moment anyway. The Panasonic works fine though
Holy crap! Some great great GREAT stuff out there!
Congrats on the book, Matt!
Corlan, love the series.
I'm laying the foundation for a year long documentary project, so hopefully it will come about.
But for now...
Adorable shot Jason!
Thanks Jorgen, Steve, Jason, Matt.
Jorgen, the guy in the blue shirt said he was from... Norway. He even volunteered to swap cameras.
Matt i must say i'm disappointed, there was one in there inspired by... you -though not too well executed (doesn't work good in such small format, either)
Jason: another lovely portrait. Maybe this one'll win a prize, too!
Vertical tree lines, diagonal bench, gentle slope, all making for a natural three dimensional inner framing, unobstrusive background, subject, stare...
Steve, this is simply Kurosawa-esque!!
Mifune is also one of my favorite, though among japanese actors (i'm aware yours is more probably from chinese descent) the subject in your photo reminded me more of another veteran, Tsutomu Yamazaki
Talking about Kurosawa, if by any chance you haven't seen his post mortem opus (directed by his long time assistant) After the rain ("ame agaru"), i'd bet you'd love it -for many reasons, and not only photography.
OK, here i am again...
What a real good photo makes us think about...
Met this creature out in the fields. Must be a cowbitt, don't you think? Or is it a cabitt?

Hi Oliver, welcome!
These are nice. Saw the "Sleepy" and Spider's web shots on the other board, and liked them a lot!
Oliver,nice job! Welcome aboard!
Matt, Steve, Corlan, Jason, Jorgen, and Oliver (welcome to the forum Oliver...let's see more!) Great shots all. Hope I haven't missed anyone. I've been very busy the past few days, but hope to have more time soon.
Lloyd... know the feeling. I have two more weddings to finish editing, then library resorting, fixing storage solutions.. umm... why am I playing on here right now?
Jason, You've Got The Vibrant Color & Angles Down To A Science! Another Pretty Shot!
Jason - though the Sears and the Watertower are cool, i can't hekp being parial to the two b&w street candids. "Say Fromage" is fun, with a perfect title, and the processing on the next is spot on.
Lloyd, good to have some news. Hopefully you did not run alongside your friend Karl all that time!
Decidedly "unnatural" pp, but, i like it. Eastern Washington at a rest stop. First blue sky in two days! We were racing to cross the pass before they closed it for blasting. Made it with about 2 mins. to spare. Cheers, Matt

Matt, is it what one calls "over the top"?
Nice one. Makes me miss the NW, space, weather... even more.
Matt, Pretty Contrast,Saturation & Framing!
"Walk Softly & Carry A Big Stick"...
Great catch Steve... and the guy surprisingly does look like Teddy R.!
