I just returned back to the site after a few weeks after having been consumed by work. I noticed that the thread about my other photo 'My Dog - Reflections' had been locked so my appologies for posting my reply to that thread here instead. Now, the photo was posted in a critique forumm, as someone also pointed out, and what I was looking for was just that - critique. Thanks to Daniel for his indepth description of what he meant about the lines in the photo that I missed. Now - I must admit that I keep 'seeing' those lines when I look at the photo and it has somewhat changed my opinion about the image. But - that's a good thing. I have a tendency to become a bit 'blind' to my own photos. So - thanks to ALL for the comments and suggestions posted to that photo. I think all critique is good and quite honestly I rather have ONE negative comment - with constructive critique - than 20 'Great shot!', etc. Also - thanks for voting for my photo 'One came sailing by' that won the May photo competition. That photo was taken in 1999-2000 with a Canon camera on Alcatraz island. I remember cursing and waiting for that sailboat to sail into the right spot Anyway thought I'd post another photo for critique. This one has somewhat of a 'nostalgic' value to me - as it's from the very first roll that I put through my Hasselblad 500C/M almost 2 years ago now. I took the camera out to Fort Funston here in San Francisco and wanted to see how well this big, manual, slow camera would do at 'action photography'. It may not look like it but these hanggliders swoop by pretty fast and the lens was an 80mm (which is equal to 50mm in 35mm) so I was pretty close to them as well I wanted to combine a bit of the natural beatuty out there, the light and the added element of the hangglider. Film was T-Max 400 and I used a yellow-orange filter.
