You win or you learn....

Wow, you guys are great in commenting! I hardly find the time to reply and thank for the comments I receive... Here we go:

Thank you Alan! Maybe look similar, but very different... Here it is mostly hot and sunny with very rare cloudy days...

Rovhazman: Good use of foreground – interesting layers in the landscape. Given the limited colour range I might have been tempted to go monochrome, but I don’t know how that fits in with your personal challenge…

Thank you very much, Bob. I didn't even think about monochrome and now that you say I believe it worth trying.

rovhazman - it's a special environment on those hills, that's for certain, but pleasing images.

Thank you, Ivo!

rovhazman - there's a kind of beauty in this scene's desolation and the light streaming through the clouds only adds to this beauty

Thank you, James!

@rovhazman - a fine image showing the barrenness and desolation of the Negev, drawing the viewer towards the boys walking away in the middle distance.

Thank you Joe. Just a minor geographic correction - it is the southern Arava and not the Negev (hotter and drier weather...).

Rov - impressive landscape, and well-captured and well-processed, to bring out such detail among a limited range of colors and tones.

Thank you, Matt!

Thanks Greg, it was a bit of a desperate search for indoor subjects in the evening, but it was fun to do and I am pretty happy with the results.

Snegren - love the constrast between the sharply defined windmill and the long exposure smudging of the water and clouds. Maybe a few dust bunnies?

On close inspection more than a few I'm afraid and one very obvious. Don't understand how I have missed them.

I'll be commenting the three days / week I participate in, as a (reasonable) goal.

Day 3: Joz: Lovely soft lavender color
Snegren: Nice to see windmills and haha about if the dykes break : )
Gregja: Creative, nice color though the main shape is a bit demanding on the eyes
Alan: Pretty water and pleasant contrast between the dark rocks and white water
LAbernathy: Decrepit building with a public history, well framed
Pegelli: Dualism that works, is the ivy creeping to take over or is it putting its head on a chopping block? )
Bigsi: very moody with the fog. I don't think there are woods like that here.
Fred_s: very nice bokeh and temperature
Phil: An appealing symmetry. (Car park?)
Rovhazman: Interesting (and alien) landscape, works well with the two figures
Mipr: Love the "daylight" light and colors
Tricky: Creative use of two spoons and a white backdrop
A_i_E: That's a peculiar looking camera : )
Bonneville: Memories of Ireland (I haven't seen a "star" here)
Mikey: Well it is the Oktoberfest, Prätzeln are tasty
Addy: Looks like a well-matched and ergonomic pair
Clk: Intersting angle of view and architecture.


Edit...hahaha, I didn't participate in day three. Oh well

Prepare to see many more as I am in windmill-mode (for now). 60% of my country is below sea level and there is only one dike between me and the sea!

Yes..it is a situation with some gravity : / I didn't mean to make light of it, it was just that the sentence sounded funny when read. "Sea level rise" is rather more tangible to some. Uncertain days ahead.

Comments for Day 2

alanfrombangor - nice composition and a well-balanced exposure (shadows, sky, etc.)

LAbernathy - clever juxtaposition of the toy boat against the harbor

Snegren - nice colors and I like how the curve of the table pulls the composition together

Fred_S - I'm late to the Fred flower macro bandwagon but I agree this shot is well worthy of praise

GlassEye - strong colors and interesting shapes, and the sky's reflection in the building, make this a striking image

MiPr - I love how this flower looks like a human hand

clk230 - fantastic shot for it's complex use of lines, light and shadow, perfectly processed in B&W

Thanks! This one of Day 3 has quickly risen to the top two of my most favoured pictures on Flickr.

Thanks for the positive comments on my shots - in the past comments have tailed off as the month progresses, so I have decided to save my comments for a while.

It's the stairwell for a multi-storey car park.

Day 4

Minolta_Mutley -- Untitled: The color contrast really makes this stand out.

alpha_in_exile -- Pine Cone: The shadows make this one interesting. I had trouble getting my perspective at first. Is it an aerial view of a shattered landscape? Firewood? Sure kept my interest!


Day 5

Bonneville -- Ollie: Sure love the 8mm. The low point of view (and Ollie) make this memorable.

Minolta_Mutley -- Warning: "Warning lights are flashing down in quality control" Now I'm worried!

MiPr -- Raining: I'm really enjoying your work with the Laowa. Each one would look good printed big and hung on the wall.

Kilkry -- Apple: The red apple in the dark scene with thin DoF really hit me.

A few that caught my eye on day 4...

bonneville - I'm drawn into this by the composition and oodles of information everywhere in the frame.
pegelli - Sure I can guess but until I know what is is I see a prefect b&w rendering of an abstract.
GlassEye - I love the colours and texture in this shot
