    1. Thank you Laura. Personally I like the Tea Shack, the first image – taken on a day with beautiful skies. Wished they had stayed for a bit longer. Now it is just πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ’¦


      1. I love it! Yesterday was a welcome respite; the temps are back down today to -7 (feels like -15) :-/
        It should warm up for the week-end but not the lovely +12 we had yesterday!
        Oh well, go with the flow!

  1. Great set John, the first one hits you in the face with those 2 intense colours and the orange what I see. But my fav. is the traffic lights – something about the composition appeals to me

    1. Thank you Lee, I was of the mind that the first image merited a post all of its own – to me it is very striking and yet such a humble thing. I tried doing the traffic lights in B/W but leaving in the orange colour but that did not work. The one criticism on the light shot is I think there is too much space on the this. Thanks for your feedback, really appreciate. MM πŸ€


      1. Clarify – too much space on the this. I’m particularly dense tonight as I had a long 14 hour drive today πŸ™‚ but I’d like to see what you were thinking. I agree with the B&W not working as I like the houses behind giving the lights a sense of place and echoing the colour even if it is more yellow than orange.

      2. I am thinking a crop on the lhs would make the image too thin and tall, but a shift of the camera to the right slightly might have worked better. I just sense that the space between the large traffic light and the left hand side of the image is a little too much and not offering anything interesting. Me being picky?? That is some drive – over here we would be in the ocean if we stayed driving for that long, or anything near. πŸ€


      3. Thanks for the clarification, I wondered if it would be something about the lhs πŸ™‚ I think that is what appeals to me about the whole shot – that there is that space and the larger traffic light isn’t obeying the ‘rule of thirds’
