My selection start with color this week!

Paramount by Dribelin: love the snow and the slightly surreal man jumping!



and another by Dribelin, Belmont Market: excellent environmental portrait



Bike Tourist with "Reality Reflected" gave us a special play of colours and tones mixed in a graphic way



We are used to the beautiful colors from Pensacola submitted by Raid, they are always nice!



Ko.fe. captured an interesting combination of light and colours with his ME, well done!



I like the strong combination of complementary colours in this photo by Mary:
: strong image!



But I like also this very different photo by Dotur, simple, soft colours and perfect composition



A simple nice photo by Steve Kessel with his Season's Greetings, just lovely!



B&W selection next time !

A little bit late but time to add my B&W preferred photos, as always so many good and it is difficult to make a selection!

I start with a photo by Rhl-oregon "Solitude above, selfies below": beside the excellent B&W tones I .like the contraposition between the seriousness of Benvenuto Cellini and the relaxed joyful mood of the young people below. A great attention by the photographer, as we say well seen and well done!



"County Fair, CA" by Mlehrman with this animal looking at us with a strong sense of curiosity



"Singing at Liberty" by Mcfingon: with his steady hand John managed to fix a moment with relax and joy, lovely. And done at 1/4th of second, wow!



Malcolm M with "The 309s" give us a musical moment: I can feel the energy of the singer! Well done with the Leica IIIG !



A lovely photo, with excellent B&W tones and a no time feeling by Shab: "Irun: Sheperd". Documenting a work that may disappear...the sense of solitude and resignation of this old man...great photo.



"Campus Fog 3" by Bernardl is one from his series which I like very much, simple and quiet. Hopefully Bernardl will post more photos in future.



And an excellent idea with perfect execution in the "style exercise" by Mcary



A slightly disturbing frame by Rhl-oregon: "Agitas". There is a special tension here, so far from the usual clichés ...interesting



A strong image by J.scooter: we already know his ability to play, better to use the light and shadows in his photographs.



Trix4ever has a simple quiet use of the light with a nice balanced composition



To finish a photo I should have placed in the color selection but because of an almost monochromatic look I add here. Love the geometry and the tones, bravo Mlehrman, your "Nurses Station Windowsill" is a great style exercise!



It was IMO a week very rich of great images, well seen, well done, well created! Congrats to everyone! Thanks you all to give us many interesting works to study and which are a great source of inspiration!
