Tera Sivic I visit your site every day now. Your site should be called “Free Photo Tips” or “Free Photo Training”. Thanks Tera

Chantel Chhoun Hah only difference was that in the original a broadsheet newpaper and yours was a tabloid. Anyway excellent

Paul Copsey Yes well I think the subject matter was better in the original, also his eyes were lit and I put mine in the shade for more mystery as my subject (which was me, a self portrait) has no mystery about him in real life :-)

LJ Images awsome post, awsome photo

Asparagus Nutrition I really your posts, well informed, but also entertaining!

Michelle Very nice Paul, i suggest setting up a forum on your site, so that us photographers can talk and communicate.

Paul Copsey Hi Michelle, this site has only just been set up so I dont think we have the visitor numbers as yet for a forum. Thanks for your interest. If … or when maybe … we get say 1,000 visitors a day then I will consider Cheers Paul

Paul Copsey Matt, Thanks for your lovely comment but one photo of the day is all i can cope with :-)

Camera buy Info Bravo! Please allow me to express my satisfaction with your blog and your images

Mario hello there, great post, and a really good location for a photo! definitely one for my book marks.

Mitchell Awesome contribution

rebmoshe wonderful and I see from your camera page that you have a 5D so why didnt you use that SLR instead?

Paul Copsey Hi ya, My 5D’s are in use all the time but sometimes its just great to travel lighter. The G11 can go with my anywhere and everywhere. That can be an advantage. Also the G11 has a smaller sensor to get more in focus (greater depth of field) and it has a flip out screen which I used here as I placed the camera on the ground with a bush behind me. Flip out screens are really cool … now why doesnt a 5d have that ?

Kenelm Heck yeah this is so cool.
