My new blog: talking about train pictures
I invite everyone to take a look at my new blog, where I talk about individual pictures or compare a few at a time, focusing on why I like them and what I think makes them "work." Sort-of mini-essays on shots, a few paragraphs each.


There are a bunch of entries to start off with. At least take a look all the way down, the best one may be the one at the bottom, about Alex Lang's shot.

Anyway, tell me what you think.

Well done Janusz, I enjoy the detailed analysis. Keep up the great work.

I enjoyed it. Feel free to use a shot of mine if you want.

Good job, excellent idea.

I've noticed in my short time here, that the discussions tend to revolve around "technical" issues; i.e. "How do I fix this shot", "Why does my camera take crappy images", "What are the screeners looking for", etc. This only makes sense, since technical/hardware issues are more concretely grasped, quantified, and manipulated.

There are fewer in-depth discussion regarding aesthetics, which I find more interesting in a way, than the hardware stuff. One can argue that aesthetics is equally if not more important than nuts-n-bolts; after all, a perfectly exposed image can be utterly boring if it is not well-composed or doesn't tell a story.

I look forward to future blog entries.

Thanks, everyone. I'm looking forward to doing more. This will also get me through the high sun days of summer. :)

I have finally found time to read through it properly and it is very interesting. It is good to see somebody describing what exactly they like about various pictures in such a readable manner, look forward to seeing more.

Apparently we have a spammer in our midst....everyone and admins.

You have some great shots.
Will give your blog some read often.

Excellent work Janusz. I will definetly be visiting you blog and look forward to reading more. I should be a wonderful forum for both seasoned and amateur photographers to gain insight to improve their work. Thanks.

Hopefully I'll have some photos that you will be able to use in the future.

Very interesting read. Thanks for sharing the spot (sorry I took so long to get to it... but as you know, I was away).

Even at my advanced age, I am constantly amazed by the amounts I still have to learn. Your insights and opinions made for a great education.

I look forward to reading more.
