    Hi there

    thank you for stopping by my place earlier and “liking” a post of mine. That really means a lot.

    I took a moment to look around your place here and I really enjoyed your photos. I think the series I like most would be the Lili-series on the top, but I really like that b&w of the baby foot and the hand towards the bottom of the page too.

    The only thing I found a bit disruptive was the large water mark across all of your photos. I understand the concept of protecting your art and I also know that putting a small watermark on the edge of a photo isn’t safe enough because I can be cropped out, but maybe you could lighten it up a bit at least (or just put a copyright disclaimer on the side and risk it).

    Anyways, this is only my 2 cents, so no need to listen to them.

    Hope to see you around,

    πŸ™‚ K.

    • Hi Thanks for your feedback, I agree about the watermark but wasn’t sure what other way i could insure that the photos weren’t being used by others. You have some great shots as well, can really feel the emotion in them, keep up the good work πŸ™‚

      • kianys says:

        Hmmm I’m not sure, but I think I remember the watermark being lighter in one of the photos compared to the rest. That’s good enough. It’s not about not seeing it (imo) it’s more about it not being the first thing you see, you know distracting from your art. πŸ™‚

        Thanks for the compliment, however those are not my photos – I take them from Flickr and combine them with a quote. I do link back to the artist on Flickr (their stream) and the original photo taken by the artist. You should really take the time to check some of them out if you liked the picture I chose. B.t.w. if you have a b&w shot of a person (not just portrait btw) and if you would care for the idea, I would be happy to feature it as one of daily posts (no pressure) πŸ™‚

      • That’s great when I have shot that think is suitable I will let you know πŸ™‚

      • kianys says:

        Yes. Great. I’d love that! πŸ˜€

    My favourite pics – Daisies, baby foot, links, knot, catching the snow

  3. Thanks for liking my post. I hope to post more pics that you like. I certainly like your work

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Enjoyed your photos here. I was especially intrigued by the ladder going up into the blue sky.

  5. I enjoy your perspective on the world. Particularly with the inanimate objects. Like the ropes, chains, barbs etc. For some reason those seem to bring out an emotive context much more than say the scenery. Nice stuff. I look forward to seeing more.

  6. seekraz says:

    Hello Aisling – what beautiful photos you have here…very compelling and inspiring.

    Thank you for visiting my site to day and for letting me know you were there…now I know you’re here, too. πŸ™‚

    Hi Aisling – I left a comment on your waterfall picture. You have some real talent. Thank you again for stopping by on my blog and leaving some love. my older girl is a photographer as well, she’s working mostly with people and bands/musicians right now but shes got a great eye. Just like you. Love your pictures, The carnation bud stands out to me as well as the waterfall one. Stunning. Take care and I look forward to seeing more of your work. Donna

  8. thanks for the like. your shots are fantastic! I especially like your macro shots of the flowers. I’m interested in macro too, but its quite tricky. any advice? and also, whats the best way to put a watermark on your pics?

    Howdy!

    I have awarded you the Liebster Blog Award! Your blog is quite enjoyable to keep up with, so keep up the good work!

    If you would like to accept, please follow these rules:

    β€’ Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
    β€’ Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
    β€’ Pick (up to) 5 other blogs who fit within the award parameters (less than 200 followers).
    β€’ Inform them that you have chosen them by leaving a comment on their blog.
    β€’ Post the award on your blog. You can take it from my post here, as well as any other useful Liebster information for reuse on your blog: http://icklekins.wordpress.com/2012/02/06/liebster-blog-award/

  10. Oh, my, Aisling, I am so glad you clicked “like” on my Wednesday WOWflower post today! I just checked out your most recent posts and they are WONDERful! The tower immediately impressed me, and then such beauty in the flowers, scenery, horses, I could go on and on. They all WOWed me. More than any digital technique. Your passion is evident in each photo. If this is the work of a hobbyist, can’t wait to see your professional self!

  11. Aisling, first, THANKS for visiting my “punny” photoblog and leaving a “like.” Additional comments:

    !. If I hadn’t started with your “About” page, I never would have believed that you are an amateur photographer. Your photos are top-notch professional, and it’s hard to believe that you don’t have your own studio and clients.

    2. Your watermark is far less noticeable than most.

    3. I really like the fact that each post showcases one photo but gives thumbnails of other shots of the same subject.

    4. Your flower shots are GORGEOUS! (Please check out my Flickr photos of my extensive streptocarpus collection which I grow under lights: http://www.flickr.com/photos/my_streps/ )

    5. And, last but not least, I subscribe to about 15 photographers’ blogs and promised myself that I would have to end this addiction, but you’ve already got me hooked. (I have each photographer’s weekly posts arrive as one archive e-mail on Sat. morning, when I have an entire weekend to savor the photos.)

  33. eddiemyers says:

    Thanks for liking my post on Nature at http://eddiemyers.wordpress.com. You have many very nice photos. I love seeing the pictures of the countryside around you and seeing how a local person views their community instead of the usual travel brochure pictures I normally see. It’s great that you are experimenting with so many types of shots. It is a great way to learn. Local photography clubs around where you live are another great place to learn and pick up some tips to help you continue to build your skill level.

  38. Great shots! How did you do your header? That’s sooo cool!? And any advice on how to protect my shots with a watermark or copyright would be of great help to me. I need to figure out how to do this. Thanks.

    Hi Aisling,
    Thanks for liking my picture. I was looking at your work and I see you have a thing for the MACRO world, like I do. Loved the rings on the book and playing with shadows. I thought it’s very creative. I’m in the process of beginning to document my Dad’s library and they could be something to work with. Thanks for the idea.
    My best very best to you!
