Greetings JW ~
I just wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest and Healthiest of New Years!
Many thanks for your advice of things to see and do in England. Hopefully we'll be able to meet up some day!

Happy new year JW. And may you have Many Many more. Great photo work. Keep up the great job :o)
I love the presentation of your gallery...not the typical PBase style layout..(like mine)
You have a great eye and technical ability that I'm envious of..
thanks for sharing..roe
Next time we all go for a drink, let's invite Cindy.
Hi, I just noticed the comment you made about the "beautiful ladies" at Pattie Boyd's photo exhibit. Didn't you even notice that they were drinking booze? Do you think that this makes them beautiful? They are consuming a toxic, mind-altering drug! But I suppose they think it is all glamorous and romantic and sophisticated. It just drives me nuts, that people don't realize how unhealthy and unwholesome alcohol is. You didn't even mention that they were drinking booze! This sets a terrible example, those ladies standing there with their alcohol glasses, big smiles on their faces. And here it is posted on the Internet for all to see. We can hardly chastise our youth for underage drinking, when grown adults make alcohol look so fun, glamorous, romantic, sophisticated and acceptable. A grown adult should know better and NOT DRINK. I could never go to that event they attended, if there was booze there. I would just be fuming. Yet all you do is comment about how beautiful these ladies are.

Hi John, loved the look around in your galleries. I will look around some more as there is a lot to study and learn from.
Kind regards Barry
So many coincidences!!!
I'm also based in Wiltshire, have recently returned from Australia and actually know the scooter riders you photographed - spooky!
Didn't get the chance to chat at Cardiff. Never mind, I feel I know you already through your photography. Hope to catch up at Bath. High standards indeed, gives us mere mortals something to aim for!
Your work amazes me John. Very inspiring...
Thanks for the comments. Great meeting you and hope to get in another "meet" before I go.
John: Thanks for the comments on my England galleries. I feel fortunate to have such good friends in the UK, and look forward to visiting again.
Hi John. Just niticed that you had posted a comment in my gallery a while back. I feel humbled after looking through your gallery of favourites. That's talent, as is the design for your root gallery. How you've done it is beyond me but it's inspiring. Once again thanks for stopping by my gallery.
Hello, there was some interesting site with nice design
Thanks for the comment on my airline gallery. Glad you liked it. I am out working a trip right now. Having lunch in Hartford, CT.
You have some nice glleries. Keep on shooting.
thanks, John, best wishes
It's a small world. I too was up on Badbury Hill this morning, just before 6am. And having done a search on pBase, I now realise it was you that was working just inside the gate - how weird is that? Wish I'd now said hello but I thought I'd better not disturb you as the sun was rising fast and you looked busy.
Instead I went in search of some woodpeckers on the far side of the wood but to no avail so I ended up focusing on bluebells too.
By the way I thought your photos were great - you were working with some pretty challenging light. Your 'alternative' with the sunlight raking across the bluebells is really atmospheric.
Maybe bump into you again sometime.
Dear John,thank you so much for your kind comments and time!Just stoped by to let you know I deeply appreciate it!Cheers!
Watching your B&W work this last month was truely enjoyable thing. Everyday something new and unique that left me looking differently through my own camera. Thank you for the words of encouragement along the way as well. I will be checking back in often (read as daily!) to see what new and exciting things you are doing. Thanks again, Bob
John - many many thanks for your comments at my galleries...having looked at your work I feel humbled by them - you have a unique eye and a tremendous gift. If you aren't a pro you should be. I've seen dozens of very saleable images on my quick look through your stuff.
I'm not sure what 'voting' here does?!?!?! It's never been explained to me - my work is/was only on here as a kind of repository to enable clients to view thumbs of shoots, but it has turned into something very inspirational.
I wish you much success and happiness for the New Year.
PS In answer to your question .how do I get people to pose - 9I take a great leap of faith and ask them. It always pays to have a mini portfolio of work to hand to validate your intentions.
Thanks for visiting my galleries and your kind words. Merry X'mas and Happy New Year.
thanks for stopping by my pad gallery, I appreciate your comments. Boy this pad gallery has been fun and challenging for sure.
Great processing - that sort of thing is a mystery to me!
John there is this great book that I learned how to post process most shots at the sun they have the foreground to back and the back ground overexposed. The book is called "Photoshop Elements 2 Solutions" By Mikkel Aaland even if you have Adobe Photoshop CS most of the solutions are the same.
Hope this helps.
Hi John - just stopping by (a bit late!) to say thanks for your kind comments on my PaD and Oxford galleries and vote for one of my PaD shots - so thanks! Like your galleries too - we Pbase brits need to stick together! Cheers, Steve
John...thanks lots for the kind comments/feedback. I've tried to return the favour...lots of really beautiful stuff in here. You have a really strong sense of composition, graphics and colour, and a great quirky sense of humour. Very nice...
Thank you for dropping by my galleries. Thank you for your kind comments especially to the Flaneur gallery. This will be an ongoing gallery where it will be updated from time to time. You have captured the British Landscape so well. I wish I could do that more often. I better start getting to grip with shooting my surrounding area (The Cotswold) which I am ashamed to say I have not done much on. Anyway, best of luck and will drop by again soon.
I saw some of your galleries and... I will be back soon to see the others!
I think you have great talent.
Keep up the good work.
(Added to my list of favorits)
Amazing gallery. I've tried this myself but got nowhere near this quality of observation and capture. I think you've developed a new genre here
Hi Waine, thanks for your comments about my "tree erotics" gallery. I guess its all about learning to really see the world around us. Your shot of Port Eynon Beach is very memorable: the yellow buoy acting as a focal point; the chain it is attached to drawing you into the photo. Many of your UK photos, have a lot of atmosphere. Nice work!
Thanks for dropping by, Keith, and for the kind words. But, hey, don't wait to join up with PBase - just do it! PBasers are a friendly lot, and the click count will probably surprise you as to how others see photos differently from you the photographer. Promise to let me know when you get started!
Cheers - John

I'm gradually working my way through the galleries and have just been through yours-- very nice, mate! One day soon I hope to join up and put some of my work up here; but there is a lot of terrific stuff like yours to live up to, that's for sure.
Just did a search for my name, and you poppped up! :)
Good to see that there's another John Waine getting "cowboy" quips! ;)
Nice photos. Are you on Flickr.com?
All the best,
Hi John, I just saw your name on the recent uploads, so I mossied over here to have a look, and I have to say, you really have some excellent images and your galleries are just lovely. I'll be back, p.s., I hope the sun is shinning again!?!? Greetings from Lovely San Diego.
Thanks for the kind words. I just had to buy the 300D and am very pleased with it. Did you buy it with the 18-55 lens? I thought the build quality was so poor I nearly returned it but tried a few in local stores and noticed the end element is loose on all of them. No picture problems so far though. Just need some sunshine - England has been so grey for so long! Have a good weekend!
Great name, like the Cowboy, but spelled different.
Your Photos are beautiful, I see you are also using the 300D for several photos, I also use it. Your galleries are wonderful, thanks for sharing. Audra
These pictures look really good. I like the variety of subjects. Keep up the good work!
Not sure how else to contact you, but Ruth would be interested in copies of your pictures, how would she go about this?
Have to say, 'Mr Punch' certainly looks outstanding!
