2014-244 At the bottom of Taughannock Falls by pearwood

This is one of my all time favourites of yours. Classic lines, deep velvety textures, and a picture of a waterfall without any falling ...

2013-001 Justin by pearwood

At first I thought that this was "just" another character study. Good, but needing a bit of personal information to really have more su...

Hristina X by silber-englein

Some for The-Photo-Critics, but some others as well. You can find 'comment crits' here

#Emptybucketchallenge by MittMac

I resonate with MittMac here. He puts it so well in the text accompanying this piece - absolutely, the folk who suffer from ALS should get all the help we can muster. But let us not forget about those, who don't have enough water to even think of tipping a full bucket over their heads. And all to often, I think it is not for a lack of ability to solve the problem, but the will. If I understand it correctly, no small part of the ebola outbreak is hygiene related.

I can support his call:
"783 million people worldwide lack access to clean water. 3,4 million people are dying every year because of health effects that are caused by this 'simple' fact. Please donate to groups like 'Charity: Water', '' or Unicef (for example)"
