Overall a neat bunch of images:\n\nBowser:\n1. I have nothing to say. Simply a really nice image, well executed in\nall respects. I wish I shot that.\n2. Neat abstract quality. Just a nit. I would have tried to clone out\nthe house. I find my eye drawn to it.\n3. You set the bar too high with the other two. I like the angle, but\nit just doesn't grab me. Sorry.\n\nBob Coe:\n1. Nice seeing. I like the interplay of the light and the shadows.\ngood use of negative space. You are starting to express more of an eye\nfor the abstract than I've seen before. Do you think a crop on the\nright, just at the right hand edgfe of the tunnel would make a stronger\nlinage?\n2. Nice composition. (no pun intended.) I like your angular placement of\nthe seating. To my eye there appears to be some blocking in the shadow\nareas.\n3. the sunlight certainly gives the effect you were looking for. In this\ncase the dead area on the right leads me right into what you wanted me\nto see. A small comment I would have cloned out the red fire alarm.\n\nMartha Coe:\n1. Well exposed. A good record of the area. Did you consider coming in\ntighter, and eliminating the transmission lines.\n2. A thistle by ant other name could be an artichoke. For me it would\nbe difficult to make the shot from a lower perspective. Try to crop\ntighter and eliminate the hot spot just to the left of the flower.\n3. Sorry. I understand your desire for preservation. But, I don't see\nanything but a shot of a poster. Try to put something of your own\ncreation into the image.\n\nTim Conway:\n1. You meet the mandate, but my comments about Martha's image are\napplicable.\n2. A nice well executed image. I like the layering effect. I wish you\nhave put a small subtle, partial vignette in the upper left. It would\nhave drawn my eye more into the beauty of your image.\n3. Well it meets the mandate, but is not interesting to me. But then I\ndid not appreciate the exhibit at Mass MoCA, "Trying to Remember the\nColor of Jackie Kennedy's Pillbox Hat."\n\nEric Stevens:\n1. A nice, interesting old machine. I am not certain that the\noverhead lights and the guard rope add anything to the image. I probaby\nwould have cloned them out.\n2. Where is the steam. There are so many interesting areas in this\npicture, that I don't know where to look first. Here I would have like\nto be perpendicular to the engine.\n3. See! You took my advice. well done and nicely composed. Quite often\nless is more. You just proved it.\n\nThe Duck:\n1. Well composed image. Good conversion to B&W. I can see myself\nwatching her for hours. If I must pick a nit, I would have a problem.\nNice image.\n2. Well done. I wonder what effect a longer shutter speed would have\non the froth. This image has commercial potential.\n3. Good composition. To my eye the waterfall looks a bit washed out,\nand I would have liked to see richer blacks. I have a personal\npreference for more subtle borders.\n\nTony cooper:\n1. How many watermelons will she sell while sleeping. Nice capture.\nTry as I might, I can't find too many nits, except I would have darkened\ndown the fence and mailbox like thingie, in the background.\n2. Very interesting composition. Good use of color.\n3. OK It's a well exposed picture of a statue, that meets the mandate.\nI've seen much better work from you.\n4. Well I admit my prejudice. I shot of a picture that meets the\nmandate. Sorry, it's simply not interesting to me.\n\nDanP:\n1. Nice attempt. Certainly meets the mandate. To my eyes, the image is\nnot quite as sharp as it could be. Was it hand held?\n2. Nice capture. You certainly caught the moment. It certainly holds\nmy interest. I'll betcha that guy at the bottom wishes he was up there\nwith those jets. I do.\n3. Well done. Anyone wo got hit by a lightning bolt would be well\ndone too. I don't think I would have the guts to stand that close.\n\nI will leave my comments about my images to my response to others.\n\nThanks to all for playing.
