    I love this pic! Boat and sky with nothing else isn't a standard composition and thats what makes this stand out!
    Would be a great image for gift cards, fridge Magnets etc!

    I love beach hut photos, reminds me of summer!
    The colours are nice and punchy too.
    Heres a thing, are they still there after the February storms?

    I love the pool and the water movement, the colours are also wonderful. The composition is great too giving a nice view of the distant cliffs but also all the action on the rocks.

    So simple but so beautiful! The light beams make this photo I think, also the very high composition.

    This is beautiful! We haven't had a morning like this at all this year.
    The light is subtle but just gives me a memory of 2010 when we experienced this type of weather day after day!

    What a beautiful shot! The misty rays of light stand out so well and the slightly portrait type shape really works well too.

    When i first saw this photo as a thumbnail, i loved it, but once i clicked on it, i realised that it was way over sharpened :( the photo is beautiful but the strange artifacts around the tree branches isn't too good at all.

    I would give full points if there wasn't that problem I am really sorry.

    I always worry that man made sea defences wont work in a photo, especially big stone blocks, but you have proven me very wrong indeed!
    Somehow you have turned this into an amazing shot and i love everything about it from the POV to the sharpness and the colours!
    You have inspired me to head to the more 'industrial' looking beaches of my little island to see what i can capture :-)

    What a beautiful forest glade!
    Composition is great with a good idea taking it portrait.
    The colours may be a tad over saturated for my liking but even so i do love the shot!

    I think this would be an amazing photo if you hadn't tried to lighten the middle tones on the people. Because of this it has produced an unusual misty look, especially on the womans hair and the mans jumper.

    Great 3D effect in this one - the depth of field is awesome and the clouds really draw the eye towards the center of the frame.

    Have a fantastic day,

    Is a curry pie spicy? This looks like a culinary delight.

    Another nice nocturnal image, the balance of light and dark is excellent. I like seeing the signs - wish we could have a bit higher resolution so I could read the menu. Maybe I could order takeout...

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Lisa!

    I'm trying to puzzle out how you got into a venue with not one, but two DSLR cameras when I am reduced to begging to be allowed to shoot national (not to mention international) acts at all. Then I picture you juggling a pint of beer at the same time. Quite a feat - you are considerably multi-talented!

    I had a look at both photos, somehow I must have missed the older shot because I can't imagine I would not have commented. Technically, I like the color version better, but emotionally I enjoy this one the best. It catches the action and the spirit of rock 'n' roll better, in my opinion. You got him screaming into the mic, sweat and veins popping out at his throat, eyes squinting from the effort. Here you show the feeling and passion of the man in his moment - one of the reasons why he became so wildly popular, even beyond the borders of his home nation.

    It's moments like this that make me, a beginning-to-be-old man, clamor for tickets to shows and brave mosh pits at punk rock bars in an endeavor to capture how the music sounds and feels in one incredible shot.

    So, technically, this shot might have been better, sure. Emotionally, no. I mean, you only have a split second to take the shot and maybe less to recognize it and bring your camera to your face so you can compose and press the shutter. You were fortunate to get Nick's screamin' self into the frame over the other folk's heads at just the right moment. And you got the area of most interest off-center, up and to the left in the sweet spot. Great job!

    So, in Australia don't they refuse you entry at the door if you have a "professional" camera, or did you have some sort of special dispensation that allowed you to photograph your hero with wild abandon?

    We have a fight going on with the music industry here - the bands are being more and more restrictive regarding music photography. Professional music photographers are starting to boycott shows when management tries to make them sign away the rights to their work. Even I have stopped giving shots to the band in support of the persons who make their living doing that work. It's counter-productive for the music industry. I mean, would you have been as eager to buy the Pearl album if you hadn't seen a Rolling Stone photo of a nearly-collapsed Janis Joplin, backstage after a concert, in a recliner with a bottle of Southern Comfort between her legs?

    Photos like this make people seek out the music of the subject. They see they passion and will buy the music because they know the musician really means what he sings. I hadn't heard Nick Cave in some years, so now I will be checking out some of his latest. Maybe if he comes to St. Louis, I will hit up his Facebook to see if I can take a few shots myself.

    I do like the black & white conversion and the over-exposed white of the background. Makes it seem more raw. Rock n roll is at it's best when raw, don't you think?

    Party on girl!

    Hi Tushar,

    Great use of razor thin dof - monkeys typically move so quickly, it must not have been easy to get the shot at the right time. I can almost see your reflection in his eyes. I'll bet I could in the original shot!

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Danos, long time no see! This is a great shot, wonderful effort by stitching. Low light and stitching can be problematic, I know! The result you got is great - I especially like the people milling around the sculpture in different speeds. The color turned out wonderful and I am enjoying the subject matter and your description, as well. Great job!

    Have a wonderful day,
