I am not much of a Landscape photographer but was happy to see my picture of my home town Sala Commacina printed in DP Magazine. The editor added a little bit of curves to the foreground (although my version was intended as a silhouette!) and left me with some nice comments:
Mario captured this glorious pre-dawn light in Sala Commacina. He couldn’t sleep in the intense heat of the summer. so got out of bed and started shooting at 3am. There’s a lot to like about Mario’s colourful, pre-sunrise shot, and it’s interesting to note it was taken in the heat of the summer, as the colours in this landscape really convey the temperature – the red and orange tones are positively sizzling!
The composition is beautifully observed and Mario has done well to get the right angle, leaving just enough room to keep the island in the middle of the lake separated from the peninsula.
This months competition was ‘Flowers’. Thinking that most people would shoot a normal macro style shot I went for a different slant and something that I have dabbled with previously.
Around 900 entries and some stunning images again, I am very happy that I made it into the top 50 again. Getting in back to back with last months portrait that finished in 7th is awesome!
Thanks to all of those who are voting for me… lets see if I can get another win sometime this year
This months competition theme was black and white portraits. With well over 1000 entries I was thrilled to make it to the semi-finals and be picked for the top 40 vote off! Not bad for a shot I took just testing a lens!
The top 40 were really really strong and I knew I had no chance of winning this one because the entries were stunning.
Today the results are in and I finished 7th. Very very pleased with that and also got some nice feedback.
Thank you to the 342 people that voted for me

My fave is HarbourPhotography as it is just such a well lit, sharp and beautiful image.

For me the best two are Joelgreberg and harbourphotography.
…for “harbourphotography” the little girls freckles, wind swept lit hair a good show of B/W.
Extremely happy to find my photo in this top 41. Didn’t expect it to. Anyway I should say ‘joelgreberg’ ‘harbourphotography1′ and ‘killkennycat’ are my favourites
The horse and harborphotography were my two favorite.

Just an update to say I am still here. I have been pretty busy this last few months and the 365-photo project is taking up any spare time I have. I do find it hard work somedays because I really hate just posting a ‘snap# so I push myself to post something that is actaully half decen. Some days I just do not have it in me but overall I am enjoying it. Some days I could post 10 photos, others none but I am sticking with it.
I have not yet had chance to write a review of the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 ii or the Canon 24mm TSeii…. both of which have mostly stayed in there respective boxes. It is pretty sad but I think I have come out of the pther side of ‘gear lust’ and now they are simply tools to me.
Here are some of my shots from the 365-photo project that I think were pretty sucessfull. I may revisit certain ideas when I have more time to perfect them!
