    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    A string of reasons all linked together -

    A couple of days ago, whilst in France, I received an automated email from your site mentioning that I had not contributed for 45 days - obviously there are various reasons why people don't contribute at times.

    So I logged on and made a couple of responses to questions where I thought I could assist.

    Late last night (my time) I though of this "Not for Critique" Forum and in it's header it has "Just for fun" and how I had previously shared a picture of a smart car on a Paris Street.

    The above is a juxtaposition to that - but with the kicker that the girls (in the photo) are still "having fun" - in the new world.

    What is fun somewhere might not seem fun somewhere else - the photo is about still having fun, no matter what: and that's the main reason for sharing it here - in a forum, in AUSTRALIA - about photos about having fun.

    Rick,

    There is not any issue for me if you move the thread to a forum in the critique area: I am not and was not intending to seek a critique of the image, but, by the same token I am not avoiding feedback and comment, either.

    If you choose to move the thread and a critique results, then relevant facts about the image are:

    Tech: EOS 5D with grip & 24 to 105/4 IS
    Shooting: F/6.3 @ 1/50s @ ISO400; M; Evaluative; EC +2/3stop; IS
    Post Prod: Rough post ex JPEG file using Picasa 3 (final edit from raw file through Lightroom will be later in February/March)

    all good, I just wondered why. For info.Tthe Not For Critique forum does not count towards forum activity. Same as Site Matters, Classifieds and Out of Focus, and competition entries/voting. they do not add to your post count and thus will not keep your account active.

    Thank you.
    Now you mention it I recall that info or similar was in the auto generated email. I contributed to two forum conversations first anyway.

    Interesting photo. Glad the ladies are smiling. You get used to what you have to get used to I 'spose. Not sure I could get used to it but I suspect it'll be some time before it happens in Mudgee.

    What tower?

    I've seen military at landmarks before too: but not walking the shopping streets of provinces though.

    Yes. The question was rhetoric, not sarcastic. My apologies if the meaning was misinterpreted – on re reading my meaning was not clear.

    My point was, yes, I agree not at all unusual to have Military at the Eiffel Tower and at Airports (as another example), but in the shopping streets of provincial areas – I’ve never seen that before. Later last night I rechecked some old files and there was a Military presence at the Eiffel Tower definitely in the 1990’s – probably before that too.

    The Military presence in the provincial shopping areas was regular, in two by two formation, not just Lyon, also - Avignon, Marseille & etc.

    Pat-downs, bag checks and wands before entering large shops and all theatres in Paris throughout the Christmas / New period year – that was a new experience, too.
