    This is sensational…Its a bizarre blend …the cricketers look so old fashioned and very English, and there, behind we have that fabulous chimney, and those intriguing “dog cranes”. I know *exactly where you took this image. I love to see how others “see” Melbourne.

    Melody – you are after my own heart…. Your comment is exactly why I took this image…. an almost painterly old fashioned treatment of the figures juxtaposed aginst the modernity of industrialism…

    Very nice. At this resolution, it looks almost like a watercolour and not a photograph.

    Very painterly. I love how you’ve balanced the exposure levels of each element in the image. Who says flat light can’t have depth?

    Its a stunning image, and the muted colors go a long way to accentuate the sense of faded time. It puts me me in mind of Terry Gilliam’s style, but with a distinctly Australian feel. I love the guy with his arms and legs all flailing around.

    Fantastic Paul! Yes, very Melbourne with a flash of Jeffrey Smart hyperrealism for fun. The Melbourne Cricket Club establishment would get a kick out of this!

    Beautiful, the almost comedic pose of the bowler and the bizarreness of the location.
    A wonderful capture.
