Didn't expect my suggestion to be acted on this quickly.
And even though it's a bit late, I did have a browse and I'll open the new thread.
It was a deliberate, but random search this time; in the past I have come across wonderful pictures purely by accident. Now I know what to do with them.

I settled on Sandy's shot the 'Tetons, ' which has a dreamlike quality, while it is obvious, that in those rough, wide, open spaces life must be hard.
Maybe I should just say, it's beautiful and I love it!

It was an excellent idea Reinardina. There are lots of images hidden away that deserve another viewing so to speak.

I particularly like the eye contact captured in this shot

Here's another shot that I like. Super lighting and a great angle of shot.

This is so classic Abers and obviously very popular. It's also so very excellent :) There's so much feeling and atmosphere in this image. Just brilliant IMO.

A Classic shot indeed and a brilliant title too.

Loved this shot by Crafty Snapper "Up and Away" when I first saw it back in March, still do to this day. I love photos of Aircraft, especially if they are done in a way that makes them stand out from the norm. This shot also quite rightly won IOTW. The mono conversion makes the metal skin of the airframe pop out at you and the motion of the propellers give it that something extra. Superb shot.

Never argue with a stupid person, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

And here is another wonderful shot of an aircraft.



It actually looks like the same birdie, shot from a very similar angle and the timing in catching the propellers -  :o

With all the talk of dormant threads, and no one really having revived one yet, I thought I'd delve through some really old stuff on the site. Way before I joined, but with lots of familiar names. Old friends and acquaintances, some of whom I still 'see' regularly here or elsewhere.
There was a warning though:

Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

But no, no new topic just yet. Let's see if some of the old ones can be resuscitated.

With the headline news, that the old favourite 'Dad's Army' is going to be turned into a film, I was happy to find some of the real Golden Oldies. "Jones the Butcher" with his trendy upside down glasses. A celebrity shot that predates the present 'Chelebriddie Cult' by several years.

I wonder if Mick (Lurkalot), triggered off this whole obsession with famous names? (At least these were famous for a reason, unlike a lot of present celebs.)

Need to have a look, because there are plenty of golden oldies on this site that deserve a refresh...

1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

I remember this from another forum and its composition and 'frozen' activity keeps drawing your eye around the picture. The two figures going hurriedly in opposite directions intent on getting out of the rain asap and that splash of colour just adds something. There are several geometric connections going on as well. The rectangles of the building and bins, but the triangulation of the tree, the no-waiting sign ad the top of the lampost gets stronger the more you look.

There are many images that are posted that are offered as 'street photography' and are really nothing more than photographs taken in the street. This goes the extra distance and does what street photography should do, engages you, makes you look and think about what's going on. Super picture.

Shows we all see things differently. It doesn`t make me question what`s there at all and to me does look like a "photograph taken in the street". Most makes me think - is it quite level. I do like the rectangle theme going on but  want a little more space on the right to balance and just don`t engage. Not seen this thread before. Really good idea to pull out old images and share.  I`m left wondering whose images some of them are though as some don`t link to galleries of who took the shot. I know you say this one is from another forum - is it one of yours Abers? Does not come over as one.

Looks like a Reinardina shot to me.

I agree with the remarks upon geometric play, action, mood and colour; but perhaps like Jinky, for me, the tree foilage touching the frame and breaking the geometric lines around the building throws the visual balance.

A less tighter crop to the right, or (as you cannot catch such moments twice) cloning out a tiny bit of the touching foilage would work well in my opinion.
