    I always liked this photograph, but I just didn't know enough about it. What do you think?

    I guess Edward and Brett were pretty close!

    (picture was done by Weston in 1971)

    What are you looking to find out?

    To me it is an extremely elegant take on a classic composition. It is very pretty and (probably -- as I've never seen an original) an excellent piece of craftsmanship.

    That is amusing. And sad.

    The funny thing is that it has never been a piece that I felt a strong affinity toward.

    It's certainly not the best he did, some people get excited over it. It's in a book I have on him, two page spread but that's not the point here.

    Yes, I realize your point and their mistake. The mistake is what's amusing and sad.

    My second sentence was (is) my reaction to Holland Canal.

    I don't know. I never liked Edward Weston very much, but I do like this one.

    I understand what you are saying Mike. In response to the photo, it's ok but not a winner in my opinion. It is sad, I haven't run across such mistake before, thought it was interesting and of course sad.

    I find it a pleasing image. Doesn't have the punch that other Brett Weston images have. Too bad the seller doesn't have a clue, and at that price, the image becomes "Musak". Knowing Brett destroyed certain negatives so that others couldn't print from them makes me wonder if his estate is being served well with cheap poster knock offs.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I like the shot a lot, wonderful balance of tones. I live beside the River Cam, and have been wondering how to photograph it. Most of it is in shade and I was struggling to visualise a successful image. This image has helped.
