    Hi Gett, great shot. Inclusion of the woman, helpfully looking upward works well to provide scale. She is well placed I the frame too. Excellent scanning, as always. Amazing that an image from so long ago can find its way all over the world. Chapeau! Steve

    Hi Gy, You're showing us, once again, that you don't need an exciting subject to make a great photo, just some imagination. Great work on the sky too. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Vince, good layered shot of the lotus gardens. I visited them with the other erstwhile Melbourne TE bods a couple of years ago, before our movements were restricted (sigh), and was interested to see Abyssinian banana plants there, like the one in your FG. You can tell by the red stem. The stems are ground to make a paste then cooked. The fruit is not edible. Cheers, S

    Hi Neighbour, how's lockdown going for you? We in Melbourne are getting tired of it.

    I like the use of the converging lines in this shot, also that it shows the wonkiness of the construction.

    Cheers,

    Hi Chris, I'm familiar with the Eastern Rosella and Crimson Rosellas, but have never seen one of these, well captured, beauties. Next time I'm in WA I'll have to keep an eye out for one. cheers, Steve

    Hi Abmdsudi. I remember well the backwater charm of Rangoon's colonial era streets, which you've captured nicely, showing interesting architectural details. I hope you're wrong and that they remain as they were - but I fear you are correct. I can't help noticing that the longyi, which was ubiquitous when I was there in '96, has been replaced by western clothes in the recent news footage. cheers, Steve

    Hi Gy, well seen and executed. Shows that breaking the compositional rules can work. Both the horizon and the church are central and in this case it works brilliantly. great work. cheers, Steve

    Hi Gert, this is indeed an unusual one for you. I like the tall narrow format, works well with the subject. The light works well, illuminating the dirty glass and drawing the viewer's gaze towards the top of the image, where we imaging the sky to be. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Ian, usually it is best to get photos of birds from the front with their eyes showing. Not in the case of a Lyrebird! Although I've seen a handful of these in the Dandenongs I've not managed a satisfactory photo - always undergrowth in the way. you've done well here. cheers, steve

    Hi Ian, Although you may have been hoping for a sunny day, the clouds have served you well, adding some drama to the scene. The red fire thingy makes a good focal point too. A shame it wasn't just a couple of metres to the left. Ah well, can't have everything. Cheers, Steve

    Hi Elaine, I can understand you being happy with this shot. It captures so much of India - the shoes, woman in the BG, of course the cow. I expect the men's turbans would have been colourful and made the B&W decision a difficult one. But it works for me, encouraging consideration of all the elements, not just the (imagined) bright colours. Cheers, Steve
