Excerpt from Photograms of the Year 1915: The Annual Review of the World's Pictorial Photographic Work

Beautiful as this is, I feel that the title belies the effect, for there is too much detail in the foreground for a night scene. A lighter print should have given the legitimate sunshine effect. There is some thing curious but distinctly pleasant in the treatment of A. Wilkinson's Majestic Gums (plate It has the look of a water-colour sketch, and it is free of any associations of that photographic selection to which allusion has been made.

A fine example of feeling introduced into a sharp, bright scene full of detail the place, indeed, where it might be thought that feeling would be a stranger - is seen in J. H. Anderson's Amsterdam (plate It really has a mood, and the careful and artistic treatment of the print alone has induced it. Streets and houses reveal many attractions to the man with the camera, and it is often astonishing that he is able to make fine pictures out of such unpromising material.
