    Thank you all for your comments and I really enjoyed participating. I usually don't really participate in this forum a lot. While I agree gear can't be ignored I personally really prefer the photography. Therefore I am absolutely amazed how creative and talented people are around here. Something...

    So interesting how one image can have so many interpretations based on the subject and current economical context. The title of the image, "shoppingless entry", is really an exact representation of the reality. I knew however that the setting could lead to several interpretations. To make...

    You really underrate yourself with this photograph. There is an interesting repeatingness going that I really like.

    With billions of people on earth we all want to leave behind a foot print. A foot print to be remembered, our "15 minutes of fame". Also this is a foot print for each and every photographer who participated in this SIJ project. I have seen remarkable photographs and people getting...

    Single in January - So how's it going? Days 21-31

    I have to admit that I participated, because I was already working on a PAD project. For me, the essence of this project is the sharing of photographs and certainly not the commenting. If I would be constantly bothered with commenting on as many photographs as possible I would have long stopped...

    Close to sea I really miss these type of winters. When seeing your capture, Thomas, I feel the snow melting on my face.

    Like many at the Northern Hemisphere winter is playing tricks with lots of rain and moderate temperatures. Best way to escape and to stay dry is to travel by car.

    I have had back pain problems for so long and had several pain treatments. I had high hopes a surgery could ease the pain, but on Wednesday I learned a surgery made no sense. I simply have to life and not to deal with it.

    I think this is a really strong and powerful image. And I like it with the point of interest being right in the middle and every line, the vignette, and of course the figures bring my eyes there (and I like the processing too).

    It is really a form study where you have to look closer to recognize what you see. Things I tend to do when I don't really feel like I want to photograph. Something that happens to mostly in the weekends.

    Single in January - So how's it going? Day 11-20

    Unlike last year during my PAD project I tried to select a photograph daily this year and upload it here. The first two weeks felt natural, but I noticed being to conscious in my shooting. I was too much aware of what I had selected the day before to keep my daily photographs in a sort of flow...

    Oh, I suck for in-car photographs. The car window always seems to add intriguing framing, elements, and depth to a composition.

    I shoot color jpegs with my GF1. Use Silver Efex Pro and apply a sephia preset. I kind of crush the s-curve to lower the brightest point. Additionally I make the grain a bit finer. After that I apply a preset in Lightroom that has a very mild s-curve and some duo toning with yellow tint for the...

    Serious Compacts Podcast 1: Arrival of the 'X' Cameras

    I have to admit not listened to the podcast, but I do really like that metal print wall Terry! And for those interested in podcasts about photography, and less about gear, there are always the excellent interviews by Paul Giguere at Thoughts on Photography.

    The direction, this road, goes straight ahead. The fog of the day before disappeared and a small hill can be seen at the horizon. These are merely the Dutch Mountains.
