Is this real?
Dave Carrington: I guess it's hyperreal, Chris: it's an HDR from a single shot in which I've tried to gain some shadow detail. The light at the time was magical: dark clouds with a burst of sunlight which was a blessing. I think it's a tad overcooked, personally. I may revisit this one...
wow. Wonderful
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Stef!!
Great shot!
Dave Carrington: Glad you like it!!
With a sky like that I wouldn't do...
Dave Carrington: Nor would I, Bernie!! smile

Dave Carrington: Banksy it ain't! smile

Dave Carrington: You're right, Travis: always turn back into the light!! smile

The curve of that wall against the straight horizon is wonderful. Splendid light.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Ingrid. As I've already mentioned above, this is overcooked: the light was indeed wonderful & that curve also. I may post a more sober version... smile

Fascinating composition. The curve almost has the feel of motion and the colors are delicious. Her shirt matches the water and sky. I see "teabag" was theresmile
Dave Carrington: Hi, Sherri. Don't know Ol' Teabag, nor do I wish to! The sun on the curving wall really drew me into this one!
This is an excellent composition, I would like to see the revisit.
Dave Carrington: soon come, Nig...honest! smile
I find this one quite scary. Who said that we can only take so much reality at once? I have taht feeling with hyper-real images sometimes. It's a kind of overload. It's also a sublime landscape, in the old sense, i.e. awesome and threatening.
Dave Carrington: I know what you mean, Ian. I like an image that challenges the viewer a little: I could be pushing out pin-sharp flower shots( Yes, I do take them!), but why??? smilesmile

A wonderful collection of photographs Dave, thank-you for posting them...please do not stop!!!!

This one just stands out as my favourite....something I would gladly have on my wall and would never tire of looking at...

Reminds me of Hopper too....

Fabulous atmosphere!

It's not easy to present someone with a image that immediately draws you in to a complexity of emotions, ideas, thoughts, contrasts and symbolism in one enable the imagination to run wild; however here you have effortlessly achieved it...

I absolutely love this shot!!!
Dave Carrington: Thank you, Tracy! What a superbly gushy, flattering comment: you can come back again!!! smilesmile

Seriously, I'm glad you like it enough to make a comment & I'm pleased it has had such a profound effect! smile
