    I can't possibly find a single technical fault with this...it's well designed, well exposed, and printed with care for all of what's in it. But, as said before, it's repetitive of soooo many other scenic decor images that I don't feel I need to spend more than a couple of seconds with it...in a word, it's boring. He's found an excellent spot to uncover some excellent photographs, but settled on simply recording the site which is what I would have seen had I been there. I don't sense he's shown me anything that matters to him about the place. Great for a calendar, though, especially in New York in February.

    God, we are all so jaded.

    Since we have all been inundated by millions of images, is there nothing that can fill us with wonder anymore.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    not jaded at all - this is just a fairly mundane (if pretty) beach scene photographed with a certain level of technical confidence.

    The wonder would have come if he had managed to show the world in a single grain of sand. Instead we have something suitable for a LowePro ad - now that's jaded

    I think it is tremendous pity that the APUG galleries aren't regularly populated with such 'mundane' images. This would enable us to fully appreciate the truly original and interesting images which we see on a daily basis there.

    Possessing a thick skin, on my return from Cornwall, I shall do what I can to put my pictures where my mouth is and post a few far more mundane images than the one Robert has suggested we discuss.

    In the meantime I shall direct my energy positively to making some pictures. I've heard that this process can be even more enjoyable than spending time in a web forum.

    This is a sub-forum recently created to talk about pictures.

    Passing judgement comes naturally,
    it's the 'talking' that takes a little learning,
    and we're trying. Bear with us.

    Maybe there should be a requirement/strong suggestion that people add images to the thread as an ongoing riff of VISUAL ideas

    And yes, that Joe C photo is spectacular, very strong composition.

    A work colleague brought in a coffee-table book by Joe Cornish of Scottish coastal pictures. While the photos themselves were beautiful and managed to catch the Scottish countryside in all seasons, I found by the end of the book that I was longing to see something living in a picture, either people or wildlife.

    I get the same slight sense of dissatisfaction in my own pictures where there aren't any people involved, so perhaps that's the kind of work I need to concentrate my efforts on.
