I don't see any blue, but it is still pretty cool and full of energy.

John -

I took my cue from the Red Sea: sailed it end-to-end four times (steamer, not dainty sails!) and nary a glimpse of red over the rail! Perhaps if I'd travelled on the other side... guess I was only half-posh.

Interesting about the energy: physically, I have practically none left. This makes me feel more secure in my beliefs of forms of immortality post-death.

;-)

My, my, Rob, but you have have been around the world. I only I will have such memories...

I confess that this image has been somewhat manipulated, to give it RBG look. However, this is allowed in my camera club, and I wanted to show you can have exotic images without going to exotic places.

Hi John,

Early travel. Well, it was all beyond anything over which I had a say at the time, but I did enjoy it as much as anybody under sixteen does. ;-)

I know the truth in what you say about the need to move or not to move elsewhere in order to find pix. The real need is to open one's eyes, and look, and then see.

I think that part of the problem is found in trying to make one's current location fit into another set of circumstances. For example: I love Saul Leiter's work, but the parts of it I admire mostly involved a small area of New York. I live between two villages - pretty much - with the closest thing to a city being Palma, some sixty klicks away, a long drive only to find parking problems and expensive coffee with absolutely no yellow cabs! So what to do? Can't really ape that genre -maybe it's already vanished within New York - so I ended up looking for the micro detail which, through its own mannerisms, exists everywhere will you but look for it.

But that's personal work. For professional, it's almost completely the other way around: you have to travel to find the locations that suit the job. However, if you have the personal circustances that allow you to travel just for fun, then it certainly will offer you the shock of the new which, of itself, opens the eyes and thus the photographic chances of something different.

I think I'm allowed to say that this is a nicely composed shot with great colours. I forget where it's OK to comment and where not :)

If a little dig in the direction of Without Prejudice, the only section with some requested, non-format specific restrictions, then let me reconfirm:
the idea behind Prejudice is simple - just a place to post images when you really don't want or need 'how to' advice. There's no policy regarding other comments, in the sense that you can like or hate with equal freedom; just don't suggest processing and/or cropping changes please.

Let the photographer's decisions stand, and base opinions - if any - on the image as it is, not how you'd like to alter it. You can't do much about any art gallery image, so think of these submitted pictures in the same way: they are as they are, for better or for worse.

Not at all a dig at without prejudice which I now understand, rather at least one other topic where it was suggested I was not qualified to comment so I am now much more reluctant to post but this image struck me as particularly bold.

Why can't I find Prima Donnas, Slobodan? I'd love to contribute!

A couple of very different images but they are both about playing with light.
Keep the abstracts coming!
