Its hard not to like that last shot - or the other two, but I'm sure you know what I mean. But moving on from the obvious, you've got the composition, lighting and focus spot-on and the look from your lady friend is just perfect (cooperation or spontaneous? who cares!).

That said, I'm assuming (I'll slink away if I'm wrong) that you're after other photos people have just printed.

This one is mine, after a bunch of stuff I won't bore anyone with right now (but may do so elsewhere and later):

Join in by all means, it’s interesting to see what people are saving for posterity. I’m hoping this will shame me into getting more of the stuff I start onto paper and posted here.

The last shot is my daughter BTW, a snap-shot

Well, then: you have a lovely daughter; and a snap-shot that good is no longer a snap-shot, however casually you may have taken it

I'm not 100% sure about this one, it may be destined for the shredder

Seems the photos I am sure about, there is no hesitation, no consideration. Those I am not sure about, well, it usually means I am sure, sure they don't make it. No amount of pondering or searching for photographic qualities can replace the missing magic. I seem to be quite good at capturing images that come close but just don't make it.

It lacks a strong feature on the LH third, It's on an easel at the end of my studio at the moment, I'll probably shred it at the weekend

i like it

i like it...

...for the details, the "slice of life", the contrast & tonality and the timing of the moment. there is a story or two or three there. i am not put off by any perceived non-adherence of "the rule of thirds" or what ever.

please don't shred it !!!!

if you can't abide with it in hearth and home...i would love to have it for my home (will gladly pay adoption fees!!)

Please understand I was in no way commenting on your photo, but rather the struggle that sometimes happens when concsidering the value of a particular shot. Best.

I didn’t take any offence, and I’m sure non was intended. I work in a studio environment, and have for years, so I see criticism as a positive thing anyway

I like it. Crop out the car, leave the parking sign, and bring it in a bit on the left, and you have an image that centers attention on the couple and all those signs shouting "Free Money!". That's a good story.

It seems only a couple of years ago I was throwing Curtis around in the pool. He's 16 now and has shot up to 6'3" over the winter. He is joining the cadets in September and is already training to pass the parachute regiment's selection in two years time, he spent his holidays this summer tabbing round Corfu's hills in 35c heat carrying a pack full of 2 ltr water bottles.

This print is for his grandparents

Stewart: you've got a great eye. Your pictures have that quality of seeming to reveal something essential about each subject. My hat's off to you.

I must admit, on this one, to removing two distracting details from the background, one of which would have been very difficult to achieve in a traditional darkroom

Many thanks Frank, I really appreciate that, a lot of it is the lab's agfa digi enlarger-printer thingies, I'm nothing like as good in my own darkroom.

Silver prints from a computer who'da thunk it possible?

I should have moved to the left a bit, so the face was contrasted by the dark bit :yes

I over-exposed this neg, it's been a bugger to scan but looks fine "in the flesh" ... peeping is perverse

I had to take out the back wheel of a bike at the RHS, but I left the sign at the top left, amazing what one still misses in negative space.

I got dead lucky with the exposure, I think the shadow detail makes the shot ....
