Something about laundry speaks to me... not DOING laundry mind you, just the VISION. ;-)

Thank you for starting this venture again, although with recent events I guess it'll be stopping again. Sadly I wasn't able to take part as I was away and not able to shoot specifically for it. I've always enjoyed your architecture shots and will miss them.

Stunning shots, well captured.

I remember several of these from previous posts.... I've always enjoyed your architectural and black and white photos.

Stunning shots...#2 is my favorite!

I love the way the Florence shot draws you in, but my favorite is the Grenada peice - very strong stonework.
Nice job Stefan.

Wow, I should have known you would take this theme and absolutely blow it out of the water. Magnificent shots.

The first one is my fav but a fabulous series. I am still trying to hang on in their but just can't feel the same about PB at the moment is was such a relaxing pastime before but now it makes me want to pull my hair out so I am using FB and returning here to check how things are going

My like is for the underwear shot.
You already know how much I admire your b&w architecture shots. Not sure that you have chosen my favourites here though. I do find the skies a tad unnatural where you have tried to knock back the excessive highlights.

Errrr, underwear? Have you been peaking?

Your work is exquisite, as always, although I find the 5th rather distracting. It has a lot going on!
The first intrigues me - were you laying on your back?

These are all amazing

Excellent. I love the black & white details and moods that you have captured. I hope to create strong imagery of that which you have created.

Wonderful series, Stefan. Thanks for the submission.
I have taken #2 as my favorite.

Stefan Fletcher Replied to Ram Ya 3 years, 5 months ago

Thank you, Ram. Is it normal that I don't see my own post when I search via the tag "weeklytheme1"?

3 years, 5 months ago Edited
Ram Ya Replied to Stefan Fletcher 3 years, 5 months ago

The search box is not able to search tags (only post's body content for now). So the theme entries are visible via the tag URL i.e. https://www.photoblog.com/browse/tag/weeklytheme1/

I know this is a very primitive way of doing things, we need to probably have all the weekly themes in a browse page tab or may be in a forum section, what do you think?

Antonio Gil Replied to Ram Ya 3 years, 5 months ago

Browse tab seems fine to me

Stefan Fletcher Replied to Ram Ya 3 years, 5 months ago

Thank you for asking for my opinion. I don't see the point of tags if they can't be used as search/sort filters. Instead of adding yet another layer of complexity to the already confusing mass of changes (and getting a whole boat load of complaints from long-standing PB members who don't understand them), I suggest you make the weekly themes available from the editor's list / browse function until tags can be used to search for posts. Incidentally, I tried to copy and paste the above link in another post. It didn't work.

Hi Stefan,
Already started working on tag search feature, it will be up soon. I admit, not having searchable tags is limiting its purpose.

However, tags are the main element that connects/aggregate posts with the rest of the site. We now get to discover all these wonderful subject areas because of the tags in them. For example, https://www.photoblog.com/browse/tag/travel/?page=3

I remember the first one and think It might be in my favs, in B & W it almost has an abstract feel

Marilyn Grimble 3 years, 5 months ago

I have seen most of these before - how did you know there was a theme please.
I was totally unaware of this.
As usual - all are technically perfect - I have always liked the first. Mx

Antonio Gil Replied to Marilyn Grimble 3 years, 5 months ago

There's a weekly theme announced in the first blue line on top of PB page

Thanks Antonio - I have found it and prepared my submission for tomorrow. Mx

What a gorgeous set. I almost love them all. The one of the arch in Arles is a bit twisted, I think.

Must be an optical illusion. I used a Voigtländer ultron lens. They're considered ok for geometric distortion.
