Are your photos available for sale.I would particularly like to buy the one of Porthkerry viaduct. Do you ehibit anywhere locally?
The new slide-show on your main page is a real treat, mate :)
Have just discovered your images. Just had a taste of Turkey in 2001, and so enjoyed your photos. No pun intended, I am a veg! Thanks for sharing. My wallpaper never looked so good.
HI ROB VERY GOOD .
Your "unreality" galleries are amazing.
I'm doing photography in college at the moment, a project on experimental imagery, and you will definitely be an influence to the final piece that I choose.
I was amazed as I looked through all of your galleries, you really are talented.
Did you achieve your effects in Photoshop?
I hope to one day aspire to your level of photography, keep going with it.
Very beautiful portfolio. I enjoyed it very much. :-)
Tremendous stuff Rob, so much imagination and dedication applied to your pics, a pleasure to view.
I'm jealous of how good you are.
Thank for looking at my London pictures. I appreciate the comments. I came close to my old home today and had a wonderful walk up Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons (thought I'd mention it as I saw mwention of the Beacons below). First time I had walked up Pen Y Fan - I was very impressed by the views!
Timco van Brummelen
enjoyed your pics tremendously! I'll come back for more! bb Timco
Hello Rob. Just beautifully and innovatively done! Viewing your work inspires us. Thank you for sharing them,Lisa&Ford.
Thanks ever so much for you comment. I have looked at you galleries, I might I say very impressive stuff, they are inspirational stuff. I guess living in wales the brecon beacons has a slight advantage with the eye for landscape. Thanks again
I wish you a Happy New Year Rob.
Rob, your galleries are phenomenal! I just added you to mu favorite artists, you are very talented I will be back for more. Regards from Paris. Fred
You're multi-talented :)
I love your celtic music.
Thanks for the link to your music site!

We were laterally upheavaled with your spacial and drowning in the rays of light works. Grandious mysteries of the nature, which are so strong, that can do without human. This is the dazzling alchemistry of the Spirit of the Nature! Thank you for this mysterical experience.
Your galleries are beautiful and your images are perfection in photography. I have enjyed looking. May I ask you, how were you able to create a slide show on your front gallery? It looks very nice.
You have some grat pictures here.
I like your tree gallery very much.
absolutely stunning work, can't wait to see more!
HI ROB , THANKS FOR STOP BY AND COMMENTS , YOUR WORK IS LIKE DREAMING, I REALLY ENJOYED, PEPE
Hi Rob. Thanks for stopping by and commenting...and more than that, for making me aware of another outstanding photographer at pbase within the past couple of weeks. I've only seen two galleries so far, but I will be back. Another addition to my favorites.
What I envy most is not the technicality (although certainly it is one of the best), but more so on the poetic style and serendipity, and you do it so effortlessly.
(I've been visiting yr galleries from time to time before but only registered recently.)
added to one of my favourite. Keep up w/ the stunning works! Jim
Dear Rob, thanks a lot for your kind comments on my shots, I´m glad you like them, best regards, Rosemarie :-)
Hi Rob, I just saw your comments and am impressed by the kindness and sincerity. Nice to have that these days - thank you very much and the same back to you and your family. And of course I saw some of your pictures when replying now, and I am so glad I did. "Unreality" is fantastic! Not so much time now to look at the others, but you are on the short list of my favourites to study in more detail. Thanks again, Ralph
if i hadn't already said so. . .thanks for the nice words and the encouragement.
Brilliant galleries. You have a gift in creating mysterious mood I can feel what you felt and the thoughts running through your mind when you haven taken the shot.
I can see it was Ian who pointed you in my direction. How different the bay looks in your black and white work, your use of the light is what makes them. I like your Rain Country gallery, again places I am very familiar with, I particularly like the shot deep in the forest, could be taken 50 yards away from my house!
Hello again Rob,Have just enjoyed your"Just one hour" of Dunraven Bay.Very atmospheric.After seeing all such views in glorious technicolour,it seems curious to view them in B+W.To see them from a different perspective,try www.pbase.com/gibbsy.He's local to you,hey you probably know him anyway.Good luck.
Brilliant. Freaking brilliant. Ian Schwartz.
Where is here some info about site creators?
I'm need it.
For example, as here - [url=http://www.google.com]Google[/url], I'm really have seen it
Your pictures are simply amazing!
Fantastic colours and composition. Congratulations!
Now I see why you have been so busy lately.Congratulations on the new outlay of your Galleries.Looks very professional ! I must say that the style suits your Galleries very well.Cheerio from a cold and windy Holland...."H"
Wow...very creative and talented you are. Very much enjoyed looking through your galleries..will be back to view more...Regards..Lorraine
I have more than 1.000.000 reasons to keep on visiting your galleries... :)
I wonder, how do some of your beautiful pics get that heavenly look to them? Could you share a secret with me? I love your work!
Merci for the comment you left on one of my picture, I have just visited your galleries (some of, for now) and that's definitively impressive, so thank you it gives additionnal value to your comment ! Thanks again, best regards, ERic
Toutes vos photos sont sur-réaliste. Bravo, de superbes traitements. Jadore
Thank you for the kind words. It means even more when someone who is as good a photographer as you leaves them.
Thanks for stopping by my gallery. The new Glamour shots are of my wife. I have hade the great Opportunity to be learning froma great photographer michael woodall. check his stuff out at michaelwoodall.com
Mr. Davies: his(her,your) photographies are on the verge of achieving that I leave Pbase. His(her,your) quality is infinitely top ... but usded is between(among) my favorites for much that weighs him. Also I like that you publish in his(her,your) photos the information in conformity with more puero Pbase's style. His(her,your) photography is extraordinary: It(He,She) manages to form in photo exactly what wants. And it is difficult mas. Thank you.
I really appreciate your comments on my galleries Rob, I've admired your
work for quite some time now. In fact, it was because of your galleries
that I decided to buy a Minolta S414 as my first digicam. I didn't get
much shooting done with it, but (strange as it may sound) ended up trading
it in for a rebel xt at no extra cost. Miracles do happen and your work
played a big part in my little miracle :) Thanks
WoW,wooooooow wonderful. great galleries. Beautiful photos! Beautiful fancy! I very nice to see your gallery. I am set back by your colors in all your galleries. Really great work. you are very talented........... and ect/
I beseech you to post more often!!!!
Your fan club (aka me... lol) is suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
Only you can provide the cure... :)
Excellent work, enjoyed looking at your galleries
Splendid - the trees are alive......yoou obviously do love them!!??
Thanks for your kind comments on my galleries, Rob.
Best wishes for you and a very happy new year!
A friend emailed me your galleries.
Thank you for bringing the beauty of your work to us via the web.
Your My World photos are breathtaking. My maiden name is Orme, and my family migrated to LLandro, Wales centuries ago. I understand there are two mountains - Big Orme and Little Orme? Your photos have given me even greater inspiration to visit the home of my forefathers.
Hey Rob, thanks for visiting my gallery (more than once too). I check back here every so often to see any new stuff you have added. Your re-visiting of my galleries is a huge compliment to me and makes me think that maybe i have some images worth viewing. Have a good one and keep up the good work.
I just wanted to stop and say how wonderful I think your work is. All of it is just beautiful!
Thanks for your kind comment to my gallery "Thank you Dad". It's hard to write this sort of words. I wanted to be simple and sincere and I'm glad that you like my text.
It makes me time to work with photoshop. I have plenty images to transform.
Do you understand french ?
Best wishes, Pascale.
I enjoyed looking at your galleries. Greetings from Bergen, Norway
Thanks for the nice compliment on my Montana photo. I carried my gear and tripod around with me for three days while hiking in the mountains, and getting shots like this made it well worthwhile. I'm going back for the Thanksgiving holidays, so hopefully I'll have more to add to this gallery when I return.
Thank you for yor kind comments about my Sker Beach picture.
Thanks a lot for your comments. I just realize that I can do something cool without DSLR. I always complain that I don't have a good camera. Now I know camera is just a tool. Your work is very unique and beautiful. I will keep learning.
You have a great portfolio Rob. Not only are you a good photographer but you have the imagination of a real artist. I just loved your unreality gallery. Hugs! :-)
Hello Rob, I'm a newbie on Pbase, a muture friend Maggie M gave me your link and insisted I must visit your work and will love it...how right she is. Your body of work here is breath taking. I look forward to unhurried time touring through your pages and learning.
Rob, thank you for commenting on my galleries. I am glad I have discovered your art. You have some phenomenal photos in you collection. They all have such a moood, emotion and energy in them. I have marked you as my favourite, now I have to figure out how to vote for your galleries, cause they are awesome!
Thanks for your comments. My cat calls Paddy, an irish name, because she is orange like the irish Paddy Whiskey. Her real name is Paddy Rose.
You've got beautiful shots in Turkey. I'll be back later to see them, I have not enough time this week end.
Best wishes, Pascale.
Hi Rob - Thanks for leaving a comment regarding my images. Coming from you means a whole lot. You are a true talent. Keep up the great work. You are an inspiration to me.
Rob, you've got an other wonderful gallery with these Turkey pictures. I love boats so I'm in heaven. I really like the quality of your pictures, you obviously put a lot of effort in your work and it shows. Proof that the G5 can hold its own against many more advanced cameras.

i am back.
i saw and i see again your pictures.
especially i love your mix of colors.
Thanks for your comments. Paris is a very beautiful town, isn't it ? Best wishes, Pascale.
You do beautiful work. You seem to handle light very easily. Something to strive for. Thank you for sharing your photos.
Thanks for your pleasant comment. I'm very glad that this old picture interest you. There was a photo-school exercise in 1980. The theme was Autumn, and I'd got a good mark.
Poems are a charming idea to present galleries. I shall think about it.
Sorry for my english, it's very bad, isn't it ?
Best wishes. Have a good day !
I would just like to say how much i enjoy your galleries, especially all the galleries in the Unreality section and also the A Collection Of Antiques & Curios Gallery. You truly have some inspirational images and a great imagination. keep them coming
thanks for visiting my gallery because that made me know your amazing work. Your galleries are really special.
Hello Rob ! There is a picture for you in my latest gallery. Look at the titles !
Regards, Pascale G.
Thanks for your comment on my pictures. I have already seen your galleries and I vote for "The Secret Garden". I love Paris's pictures too. Bye, Pascale.
Are you a Professional?
Your photos are...
You have a great imagination

I m glad to find your portfolio.
love your pictures.
Thanks for checking out my galleries, it's good to see that there's a Welsh contingent on Pbase! (I'm in Abertillery by the way - not that far away!)
It is a pleasure to receive a comment on my pictures from a so good photograph. I thank you for the occasion you give me to discover your gallery. It is wonderful. I like very much your Collection Of Antiques & Curios, and your knowledge of light and atmosphere. Bravo et encore merci.
hi rob...thanks for your comments on my gallery!! =D im glad you enjoyed going through them! you've got some great pictures and will keep coming back to check new ones =D cheers!!
Lucy and Jojo

Hello Rob, Thanks for stopping by my galleries and commenting and helping!!! I do appreciate that... Got a chance to browse through your galleries also and found them very inspiring. What a great eye you have. Wonderful composition. I am looking forward do new pics from you always! Keep it up.
You have some terrific images here, Rob. I just do not have the time to make all the comments I'd like....
Rob, I just scanned your guestbook, and I see that I am not alone in our admiration of your work and creativity. And thanks for your kind comments on my Photoarrow galleries. I am only a mere shadow of your greatness, but I am inspired. Best regards, Donald Kinney
I enjoyed your gallery "Bay, Barrage & Marina". I can't find pictures like these in Kansas City. Great colors.
Rob, thank you so much for visiting my galleries. Appreciation comming from you is truly flattering. Your gallleries are pure art.
Rob, I have been wandering in your galleries. Such wonderful images that I find I need to return often to drink in more.
Thank you for dropping by my galleries and for your thoughtful comments.--Rene
Fantastic galleries. Very beautiful.
Absolutely fabulous B&Ws! Surrealism at its best! Do take a look at my B&Ws and I appreciate your advice and comments.
Hi Rob ,
All your galleries are very impressive. I liked 'Light & Shadows' the most. Your exploitation of light and shadows is indeed superb. I found that you use various models
of Digicams including Minolta DiMAGE S414 (the model which I currently use). It's great to see the capabilities of S414. Ofcourse its the man behind the camera that matters and not the equipment so much! You have also shot out of the world photos with a Coolpix 2000
which is possibly a 2 MP Digicam.
Thanks for sharing those worderful images.
seriosly im glad for that page
because your honour is your country
you watching that photos end what do you say yoersalf

Maggie ( MM ) from Photopoints directed me to your album
Impressed by your skills,both pre and post photography
Your eye sees the true beauty in every scene, your lens reflects the beauty in your soul.
I enjoyed your gallery, keep up the excellant work.
What a happy surprise! Photos so differents from what I know of you. Million times more beautiful than what I saw from you on PP. So much freedom and artistry. Why not showing them on PP?
hi Rob . i check some of your galleries and i discovered a great style .i was very impressed from your images here ,it was a magical tour .great work my friend Yiannis.
Loving the browse I'm takin' in your spectacular galleries. The Unreality is truly 'unreal'...inovative, creative, dynamic and full of inspiration... you are a very talented man.
I love your pictures of the trees.
Is there any way I can buy some of your prints?
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
A lot of marvelous images :)) Cheers
Inspiring and beautiful. Compositions are savvy and intriguing. Some of the wooded paths look like Northern California.
Excellent galleries. "Skies" and "Spirit of trees" are my favorites
Rob, . . . I added you to my list of Favorite Artists some time ago, so I figure it's about time to leave a comment... or two :o). I can honestly say you have some of the very best galleries I have ever visited on pbase (period). . . . Your ability to visualize 'meaning' within the photograph is superb. Better yet, you have a magical means of conveying that 'meaning' to everyone who views your world. You have risen above being a photographer. You are a true artist. Here's to the UnReality of Reality *^*. ( ) ( ) Bryan
Really like the use of a gradient in your style sheets. There is an error in the scroll bar code. It won't take effect in IE unless you put the code for it in a separate section labeled 'HTML'. I commented on it in the forum:
I loved your Sanctuary and Atmospheres galleries. (Not that the other galleries were too shabby either!). Nice work. I've bookmarked you in my favorites. Brian
I only discovered your gallery today and am pleasantly surprised by the degree of creativity you have to produce these kind of images ! Well done.
Your galleries are I N S A N E.
Congratulations on your skills and
thank you for sharing your wonderful work!
Your architecture shots are perfect. Perspective, colors and exposure ... like if them had been taken with a view camera, I'm impressed.
Hi, i was surfing the net looking at galleries in the hopes of finding a picture to put on my website. Your gallery is breathtaking. I was wondering if it's ok with you to use one of your photos on my site. It's just a personal webpage but i love good art and i would put a link on it to your site. Keep up the good work.
I realy like your photos.
Thank you for leaving comment at my ablum. I am just a beginner, please give me some advice to improve my shooting skills.
I visited your photo ablum as well, I think you are very creative and make good use of speical effect. I will visit your photo ablum more and learn from your great skills.
I came in for a quick look around and I was amazed. I could not find where to start so for a start I added you to my friends list so I can come back again for a more serious browse I am sure I will enjoy it.
Excellent works, some of them actually looks like painting.
I really like demensions, much more so than all the other ones. What do you do these with, may I ask?
Your photos should be hang on my walls!!! Excellent images, wonderfully done, Thanks :)=
Very nice wrok! Hats off to you!
Thoughtful and subtle work .You have an ability to show others the beauty that surrounds us .I also like the literary allusions and the sly wit.
Thanks for stopping by (way back in the Middle Ages!) It has taken me a little while to get back & say hi . . . altho I flip thru here on a regular basis just to see what you are posting. ^_^ I tend to not stay & post as often as I'd like, so this is just a quick hello.
Thanks so much for stopping by my gallery, Rob - I'm honored for your notes to me considering the brilliance of your collections.
by Edgar Allan Poe
Oh! that my young life were a lasting dream!
My spirit not awakening, till the beam
Of an Eternity should bring the morrow.
Yes! tho' that long dream were of hopeless sorrow,
'Twere better than the cold reality
Of waking life, to him whose heart must be,
And hath been still, upon the lovely earth,
A chaos of deep passion, from his birth.
But should it be- that dream eternally
Continuing- as dreams have been to me
In my young boyhood- should it thus be given,
'Twere folly still to hope for higher Heaven.
For I have revell'd, when the sun was bright
I' the summer sky, in dreams of living light
And loveliness,- have left my very heart
In climes of my imagining, apart
From mine own home, with beings that have been
Of mine own thought- what more could I have seen?
'Twas once- and only once- and the wild hour
From my remembrance shall not pass- some power
Or spell had bound me- 'twas the chilly wind
Came o'er me in the night, and left behind
Its image on my spirit- or the moon
Shone on my slumbers in her lofty noon
Too coldly- or the stars- howe'er it was
That dream was as that night-wind- let it pass.
I have been happy, tho' in a dream.
I have been happy- and I love the theme:
Dreams! in their vivid coloring of life,
As in that fleeting, shadowy, misty strife
Of semblance with reality, which brings
To the delirious eye, more lovely things
Of Paradise and Love- and all our own!
Than young Hope in his sunniest hour hath known.
Thanks so much for looking at the Garden Gallery's flower photos today and leaving us a compliment! I took a look in your galleries and was enthralled at all your magnficant imagery! I posted a link to your galleries so that all the members of our flower photography club can enjoy your work as much as I did. I also added you to our list of favorites so we can come back and visit South Wales again! Wonderful work! - Pat
What a wealth of strong material! Just spent some more time browsing your stuff, really original and excellently carried out. Nice!
Frances & Buffy
I'm really happy for your comments. Thank you! ^^
I love your "Creature Feature" a lot!
Happy New Year!!!
Hey Rob, Thanks for your kind comments. Coming from you, it means a lot. Just seen your galleries and am blown away. Will be checking on you again. I cannot pick a favourite gallery or image. Wonderful stuff. Cheers ;-)
What an inspiration to photography!! I never knew my home area could be so beautiful!! Great inspiration for me to start looking closer to home for inspiration. Keep up the good work!
Exceedingly beautiful galleries! Thanks for stopping by my site as well!
I'm happy I have discovered your galleries, I feel them very close to my personal temper and I appreciate your technical skills too. It's all very inspiring for me.
Présentation professionnelle, chic et technique et des images où la poésie est omniprésente. Bravo, Rob, c'est une toute belle nouvelle galerie.
