  2. Hi Baz!! Three terrific shots for Debby's theme. Good shot of Marci. I'm guessing she's now recovered enough to start competing again. Fabulous shot of Boscombe Overcliff, love that build-up of clouds. Storm coming? Interesting 'thing'. Is that a connector clasp for joining two lengths of barbed-wire?

  3. Congratulations to Marci for her success. She is a very photogenic lady and her smile is really beautiful. You know very well how to make the most of her posing for your camera. Awesome second shot. Love the human elements, specially the pair walking in a very relaxing attitude. I also like the third shot. A very ordinary thing that most people would never stop to look at, to capture it, either.

  5. Lovely banner, Baz. Such beautiful hues in that photo!


    Gorgeous shot of Marci! It's so clear and sharp. It makes you feel like you could just reach out and hug her and tell her congratulations!

    Boscombe Overcliff looks like a wonderful pace to hike. The grass meeting the clouds gives it a look and feeling of being very high up.

    I've never seen anything like the contraption in the last shot! What is it?

  6. Fabulous shot as our banner, Baz, so well deserved. And a beautiful picture of Marci, of course she is always lovely, but you have a special knack with taking her photo. I love the composition of the Boscombe Overcliff. Nice shot down to the wire. Makes me appreciate the work put in to making these connections.

  7. I love all three shots, but the third really does it for me. I think you had that in another place and said it was a HDR shot. I also have that on my new point and shoot Canon G15. It has inspired me to do some, but you have to use the tripod I think.

    1. No Pat if you have HDR on your camera you should not need a tripod if it takes 3 shots instantly, if it brackets the shots however a tripod is essential as you have to take the exact shot 3 times or more. Thank you for your comments my friend;)

  8. Cngratulations Baz, for your photo as banner of the week. That is a great image. I love all three shots. The first image is wonderfully done. She is so photogenic. What I like most of the Boscome Overcliff is the cloud formation. The subjects in the image, the three men on the cliff and and the couple walking up the path. You made an ordinary thing in the last shot something amazing to view. I like how the background is softened and emphasizes the object.
