Re: #161 - "Time"

To paraphrase Agatha Christie's book “And Then There Were None”, there are now two less contributors to the “ADAPS” forum website & club. It is blatantly obvious from the comments & actions of the two so called “moderators” that Margaret & I, or our moral standards aren't welcome. So, to paraphrase ...

Re: #160 - "Beside the Seaside"

I've obviously rubbed you up the wrong way, to go to so much trouble sourcing images to contradict my comments is almost fanatical. I would suggest that if I'm lucky enough to choose another comp', you decline entering & I'll do likewise. BTW for your information I always check exif information if i...

Re: Some Boats

Just love the tones and the tranquillity. Janice.[/quote] What a coincidence, I was just skimming through the site & saw this thread, so being a life long boat lover took a look & saw the word "Tranquillity" mentioned. Our first boat together, a 28ft Mirage sailing cruiser was called Tranquillity. W...

Re: #160 - "Beside the Seaside"

Thanks Janice, glad my comments didn't offend. Because of the quiet time on the Pictures to Exe forum, I've entered a few of the DP Review competitions, haven't managed to come below 40th yet. I think the secret is enter early.
Regards Eric.

Re: #160 - "Beside the Seaside"

I love entering competitions, even more I love winning them. However, I have my doubts about judges & judging. So please don't take umbrage about what I have to say about your image, it's just my personal view, someone else my think the opposite. Can't think why there was such a low entry? So, comme...

Media City Trip

We are registered with the BBC for free tickets to their recordings. A few weeks ago we got an invitation to apply for a BBC Philharmonic recording of 3 of Aaron Copland's compositions. We sent off our application & were lucky to receive 2 tickets. The recording was at studio 2 in Media City where w...

#160 - "Beside the Seaside"

The "seaside" is only a mile from our front door, but because of Southport's unique position, the sea is gradually receding further & further, so we don't often "SEA" :oops: see it. So for this comp' I've taken the words of the popular song as the subject. Click the link & scroll down the lyrics & p...

Re: #159 All Roads lead to.....

Just dug out the original AV show my entry came from, so for Janice, this is a bit more of monochrome Hawes.

Re: #159 All Roads lead to.....

Thanks Janice & John, I've always liked the image. Incidentally the "reflection" at the sides of the road happened when I cloned out the double yellows :oops: . We suffered for our art when this was taken, traveling 20 miles from Leyburn at dead of night in midwinter. I haven't got a new subject rea...

Re: Competition #158 Festive scenes/Christmas lights

but it would have been nice if at least one of the children were looking in the direction of the camera.
Maybe you should have looked a little more closely, the young lady center shot fulfills that criteria.

Churchtown Canter New AV show

I've neglected my hobby far too long, so last week following the dreadful storms, Monday in Churchtown dawned bright & clear. So this time I took my camera on our constitutional around Churchtown. The show also gave me the opportunity to add some of my home produced music to my pictures. It's on You...
