I admire selectivity and restraint. You display these while also being a bold and edgy. Nice work.
Congratulations on your portfolios here, Duncan. They display a real touch
of individual artistic style and verve. I enjoy the 'lookability' of your work. Cheers, Colin
Thank you Duncan :) I see all is hunkey dorey in your photographic world! xx Shannon
It was a joy to browse through your work. Very much inspired.. I hope you would continue.
My best wishes.
glad your back..I've missed your images..you opened up my eyes and showed me me "photographs" ;)
AL sent me. Great layout for the pages here and the talent
comes right to the surface.
just stopped by your gallery after i haven't been on it for a while, and i gotta say that i love what you've done with it. the new layout looks great and there's some excellent new images! keep it up! i'll be back for sure :)
Fantastic work mate; no idea why you're not in my favs already! I'll have to sort that out. :)
Looking at your galleries, I can only say that a compliment from you is a real treat.
You are simply a great artist with a great technique and mostly with a profound sensibility.
Duncan thanks for stopping by my galleries, and for the generous comments and votes, they are much appreciated :-)
Your comments have lead me to what i can only call an inspirational set of galleries,to many to view all in one go so i have added you to my favorites and will pop back often, again thanks :-)
The "conversations" gallery is wonderful. Some of the compositions are (typically) less than orthodox but highly effective. I have too many Favourites listed now to track all of them but I keep coming back to your work. I agree with pablo's comment about the pictures being pure heart and soul. They ooze both!
BTW, Im fascinated by the esthetics of your gallery, I need to learn your simplicity.
Hadn't had so much fun on PBase in a long while as I did this evening looking around Duncan's galleries. Cast a lot of votes and enjoyed myself a lot.
(I'll try not to mess this up - in case I don't make myself clear - it is meant as a HUGE compliment)
As a photographer, I feel as if I spend a lot of time trying to perfect my technique so as to mask my lack of an artistic sense and sensibility. When going through PBase I often find lots of photographers with immaculate (and enviable) technical skills, that can wow me for a several images and then leave me feeling empty because much of the imagary is beautiful shallow eye-candy. I live in the fear that no matter how much work I out into my photography, that at best, that is my destiny.
Looking through Duncan's work I couldn't help but think that he's purposelly playing with making a lot of his photos to "look" less technically savy than they really are. His shots are pure soul and heart, and this non-technical approach only adds to this effect. Unfortunately for many of the rest of us (photographers not viewers), this can neither be taught or learned.
Thanks for sharing

I took some time to view and comment on your work..
You are one the most diverse I have seen..you go from simple and composed to spooky as hell..Man you are 'wierd' ;)
You take some of the most disturbing photos-man some of your photos just make me all queezy inside. You know what, you are too much, a real authentic style of photography and a gallery with your work (I mean a real display framed gallery) would be a sight to see...
Well done it getting your images to express so much feeling and so much story..very impressive. I don't know what vision youhave but it is unique and artistic is putting it lightly..as always Duncan thanks for visiting my site as often as you do..it means a lot..
it`s a delight to see your galleries with works beside the usual mainstream! I agree: Art has no rules!
Thank you for commenting on my PAD image.
I took a look at several of your galleries and all I can say is 'WOW'. To me photography is still about capturing an image of 'something' that catches my fancy. To you, clearly, photography is much more than that .. it is a vehicle for expressing your thoughs, emotions and feelings... an art form. I have a lot to learn.
PS. Love the Douglas Adams quotes.
happy Merry Xmas for you and your family,
I discover some of your galleries with pleasure
I like your style, you have great feeling to "capture" emotion from people.
You are now in my favorites, I ll come back
I think you are a great artist !
keep doing your outstanding work
please visit me at
You have great talent and your works (some of them I saw) are full of very good compositions and much creativity. You are in my favourites.
Wow what a great collection of photos! I have really enjoyed browsing through them especially the childrens portraits. I liked too many of them to leave comments on them all so i thought id let you know here. Also thank you for the kind comments you made about my pictures.
Glad that I found your site! Love your originality, especially your b&w shots. Also those beautiful sunflowers - definitely my fave :> Thanks for sharing and hope to learn more from you...
Really enjoyed your galleries - both subject matter and presention. You have a very unique eye, I particularly like your black and white work!
You say: "This is my life as I see it." Well: all _I_ can say is that I wish I had _your_ eyes! You see things in a unique and enticing way that will have me coming back, continually, for more...! Thank you for sharing....
Duncan, thank you for your comments left on my Pbase site. I've been browsing yours, and I just love your work. It is very unconventional. You have a way of disregarding all the "rules" to great affect, and I find that very inspirational. You are a true
Thank you for the kind words about my gallery. Your galleries are wonderful...very inspiring!
Thank you for stopping by my galleries Duncan. I think you also have a unique style of photography and way of looking at what someone else might pass over in an new way. Keep up the great work!
Duncan, you have been around my gallery saying wonderful things about my shots, but, man, I'm glad i came here to visit your stuff. It just made my day. Im glad i discover your photos, are refreshing and full of live, something i really admire. Bravo!
I enjoyed a brief glance through your galleries. I am especially attracted to your portrait work. Will have to come back when I have more time. You have a gift for capturing spontaneous expressions and moments. Thank you for your kind comment at my gallery.
Thanks for your visit to my gallery and for your gentle comments. I'll keep looking forward to your works, which call for a longstanding view, as there is something "hidden" inside them, much more than the "graphic window".
You have a great eye Duncan. Your portraiture is done with a daring attitude, and with great effect. Your Places gallery is awesome. Very abstract with great tones, great composition and a genuine street feel. Keep it up, and thanks for looking at my work.
Thanks for the comment. I like your "out of the box" style of photography. It made me think about my approach and the way I look at the world. A good photo will evoke emotion. Like a memory which is not always in focus; some photos are better unfocused if that is your intent. They bring me to another time or place.
Looking forward to seeing more.
All the best,
I looked through your galleries and found that you do not capture reality in most cases, but an impression of it. Every your pictures include a part of you, your look, your sense of what you see. It could be probably called as impressionist photo art, but I am not here to put label, I want to compliment the style, you developed, your emotional and artistic photography.
Intriguing and very creative work.
hi duncan, thanks alot for your comment and vote! it's my first vote i think :). i love your galleries, especially the kids and stylised images. keep up the excellent work!
ps: i'm a former art student too. i usually do traditional illustration but i decided to get more involved in photography :)
FL you have a great eye. I am never disappointed when I come here. Thanks for this place!
