Worth a Look
« on: August 28, 2014, 08:01:07 AM »
An interesting group of pictures on the BBC web site. Two or three that catch the eye, depends what your fancy is.

A load of others at the bottom of the page that are worth a gander as well. However the Soundings From The Estuary (bottom right) makes me wonder if my eyes are attuned to river photography.  ???

The estuary photographs all seem very bleak, 'pale,' and 'vague.' I'm sure these are not photographical terms, but I can't think of a better description right now.

Some are eerily beautiful though. Very suitable to adorn walls in minimalist, pale interiors.

(Sorry, with a major renovation planned, I'm thinking in terms of furniture, flooring and decorations.)

Just my opinion, but,
I see lots of potential for some great shots from the estuary but not in those conditions of flat grey light.
Early morning visits would in order if I was local to there.

 With the estuary shots, I don't mind the flat lighting, in fact i find it quite appropriate.
 What grates with me is the aspect ratio. I would prefer them to be a bit wider or perfectly square. I find them mildly annoying as they are.

I like the Estuary images the best, and I quite like the chosen aspect ratio too, although others would no doubt also work.

I thought the 'documentary' photos were by and large boring and unexceptional, and dare I say it, more snaps than documentary.
