  1. I don’t like heights either.....a few years ago, I attended a schools choral concert at the Albert Hall....we were in the second row down from the top....I felt really ill every time we stood up....my knees just touching the backs of the seats in front, whilst looking down 80_100 ft?.....not nice. I was ok whilst listening o the music and watching out for our grandaughter, but felt dizzy when I wasn’t. a very impressive, well worked out shot.....top marks from me. FUJI
  2. Thank you all...... it does indeed send a very powerful message.....an example of relevant....Public Art.... FUJI

    WOW!..... An incredible, expert bit of panning.....superbly presented to.....a well deserved win.... Congratulations John. FUJI
  5. This pic has made the whole of our family laugh today..... My 20 yr old granddaughter keeps rare-breed sheep...as a keen, very bright young helper she has...MIST....her Welsh Border Collie......... ...Mist has some very peculiar ways, loves playing ball, obeys instructions immediately.... doesn’t like me at all....avoiding me at all costs.... but throwing her ballmy way when I’m not looking....she is devoted to her family.......except for me.... Apparently she had been cruelly treated as a pup...so, perhaps her tormentor was a tall grey haired guy wearing glasses....occasionally she might side up....touch me with her nose...then run and hide...ears flat..... Today, during the hottest part of the day....she calmly and deliberately put herself into a cattle drinking trough......... what a pooch? FUJI
  6. Love the first and the last ones....Dee... FUJI
  7. Just like photographers, Artists go through phases of technique and equipments..... as you will see from my previous posts to this thread, my media choice has been water-colour, used in a much bolder way than than those ...rather twee, studies of the past.....As I regained my old Artistic confidence, I reached a kind of Artistic Plateaux, not really finding my own path. Over the past few months I have been cataloging all of my Art works dating back to the 1960s , these have been placed in a self published hardback for my family and close friends....This process made me recall, that back then, I had a complete fascination for the...French Impressionists ....especially their use of colour....but what got me most was the...Pointillist works of...Seurat, Signac Pissarro and Van Gogh...their paintings throb with light and have a way of almost shimmering, owing to the use of small dots or dabs of, mainly primary colours. Rather than use oil paints back in the 1960s I used equally bright but easier to handle....Oil-Pastels......I did many works especially of Life-models both during evening classes, and during workshops with the Coventry and Warwickshire Society Of Artists.... Going through my old work, has re-kindled my interest, so, recently I have been regaining my previous enthusiasm for the technique of Pointillism, and its theories of....Optical Color mixing..... red dots next to yellow dots = orange....blue dots next to yellow dots = green ...and so on...with correct proportions of each primary colour making up the inbetween colours and tones....the technique takes some getting used to, and my studio can sound like a..riveting shop....but it’s an extremely satisfying and relaxing occupation. The first work here has been carried out with an underpainting if Watercolour, that has been enhanced by ...Piontillism using Oil-Pastels....these are very soft and rather n]messy to use. The second work is a study in pure Pointillism, using my extremely bright...Japanese Watercolours ....relatively thick pigments, in a super range of colours....thus was done using a single thin rigger brush. Pointillism, works in exactly the same way, as an ink-jet printer....they use microscopic dots of primary colours to form every other one. I know that some of you like to follow my progress with brushes, paper, pencils and pastels. FUJI
  8. A great pooch pic......enhanced by the excellent mojo processing. FUJI

    YOU ARE INVITED

    Yes! Coventry University is very close to where they were standing.....I am guessing that a goodly number of students from there and from the nearby University of Warwick are Chinese....there seems to be an ever growing population of students of all Nationalities ....Many redundant high-rise office blocks have been, or, are being turned into student accommodation...even my hometown and nearby Leamington Spa Have large student populations......thousands of ‘em.... Starting this year, there is University bus every 7 minutes, all with free Wi-Fi and USB sockets....plus aircraft-like announcements, for every single stop. FUJI
  10. Yes! That second shot is an absolute cracker Mike..... New kit can take some getting used to, but you will get there....eventually. A good pal of mine loaned me his Olympus PEN-F for a couple of weeks recently....a beautiful camera in every way.....but for me...the power button was on the wrong side.....causing me to miss quite a few shots..... FUJI
  11. My iPad-Pro plus the recently installed photo-editing apps are proving to be well worth their extremely modest outlay.....they do handle almost any RAW file....and the wireless file hub, means I can import them straight onto the iPad for full editing....not quite so refined as CS6 and Silver-Efex.....but very close once the tools and format are mastered. This edit, is simply on one of my iPad-stored JPEGS.....but the combination of tools have done a reasonable job here. Should yiu have an iPad.....I can recommend this set-up. FUJI
  12. We have, extended family relatives who are Hong-Kong born.....we receive communications and greetings cards from them at Holiday times.....My good lady spent a long holiday, first in Bali, and then Hong-Kong a good few years ago now.....he best memories where of the incredible approach to land, of the Jumbo-Jet into the now, replaced Kai-Tek Airport. FUJI
  13. Thank you Cheryl.....there has been a horrific increase in violent knife crime, mainly in London, but in other large cities too....the Knife Angel is a large sculpture formed from thousands of confiscated used or potential weapons by police. I will find a reference for it for you. Here you go... https://www.britishironworkcentre.co.uk/show-areas/the-knife-angel-official Hobbo
  14. I like this very much Jeff.....it has a certain feel to it that is very peaceful.... FUJI
