[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a dedication to Bob Shannon, a great friend of many TN members.
I was shocked and very sad to hear of his recent admission to hospital and I want to wish him all the best and a swift recovery.
My thoughts are with Bob and Jane and I'm sure yours are too.

Magnífica presentación Joe,
atractivos y cálidos tonos, magnífica silueta...
fina dedicatoria,

This really looks like a golden nugget in a washing pan Joe, indeed very good and artistic use of the present environmental conditions. Hope our dear friend Bob will see this shortly, I'm sure it will help in a swift recovery.

Hello Joe,
Very artistic composition with peaceful atmosphere and warm tones. Thanks for this dedication to Bob. With my wishes of recovery for Bob and my sympathy for Jane. Cheers,

Hi Joe,
I'm happy you made a visit here and show us such a fantastic shot.
Such a silent and contemplative atmosphere in your shot, a little fog and this deer standing still, I love it.

Thanks for the news of Bob - all the best for him and his wife on this way, I already wondered that there was no post from him in the last time.

All the best also for you, Joe, I will be happy when you come back from time to time, bye

Bonjour Joe,
It's such a kind and fine posting from you, a so soft and hopeful dedication to our friend Bob. May he overcome his struggles and find strength again.
Thanks for this subtle "Field of Gold"
Kind regards

Hi Joe,

This is a lovely dedication. The silhouette of the deer is wonderful and the colours are great.
Great capture and TFS

P.S. You have really great photos.

Hi Joe,
This is a beautiful dedication to Bob. We all wish him a speedy recovery. I am sure that this picture will lift his spirits.

An amazing shot, looking surreal! I love the tones and the colours. Even the lines formed by the grass are going perfectly with the rest of the picture. Congratulations for getting such a breathtaking scene.


For one reason or another I missed this. It has been four years now and I am still learning to walk. I am very impressed Joey that you thought of me. Afterwards I saw you in Singapore (*having a great time).

Your images have been always number one on TN Joey, this being no different. You are what exemplifies a great photographer. No mistaking you for a common tabloid photog thats for sure. One look at your work and wow!

I see you have posted now for Rick who has been doing work and sending it to me.......Rick is up there isnt he Joey? Ive always said that Rick doesn't take a bad picture....well dang...thanks to all who have been supportive...
