    Hi Lisa,

    The thumbnail was appealing and I had to open it... Very nice detail, I had to figure out the scale because it could be a twig or a whole tree! ;)
    I also enjoyed Craig's critique... :)
    Can you tell in your note what makes the water that pink? Merci!

    Hi Bernie,

    The Kroller Muller Museum is a wonderful place and I simply adore the Hoge Veluwe Park. Real jewel in center of Netherlands.
    It is a pity your photo is not very sharp but you chose a nice framing. Thank you for sharing...

    Salut Ourania,

    This photo plunges us directly in the field like if we were there, maybe because of the way the trees give the impression to surround the viewer.

    The fortress on the top of the mountain is the focal point, despite its position in the background, while the foreground offers a sense of the place.

    Regards,

    Salut Denis,

    J'aime toujours voir ces jeux de lumière et d'ombre que s'amusent à projeter les nuages, soulignant au passage les courbes du paysage. Le moment a été saisi avec soin, alors que la partie plus obscure en arrière-plan offre l'impression que le village resplendit de tous ses feux. Bonne succession de plans qui augmente l'effet de profondeur.

    Amitiés,

    André

    Hi Chris,

    Catchy vibrant colours from vegetation attract the eyes in the first place, before admiring the details of this temple. An array of man-made and natural splendors.

    Well done!

    Oh my God... You've been in India Craig, so by now, you must be hooked, as there is no destination as exotic and exciting as India, to truly loose all your references.

    Colors, smells, nice people, striking discoveries, awesome food, delhi belly, everything is there to create the most memorable moments..

    Barbers represent a nice theme that I enjoy myself in various situations, and this one is interesting for the expression of the client and the arms of the barber that suggests command and control, while remaining anonymous.

    But Craig, this scene is begging for more light, as you haven't post-processed it in order to bring attention on the face, or at least to illuminate it. The most important part of that frame is actually in the dark, while the shirt is grabbing all the attention!??

    Because the expression is intriguing and defines the emotional link with the subject- a sense of abandon, I would have been instinctively guided to get a closer capture, so the face and the arms would have become the ultimate elements of the image.

    When you think about it, being shaved by another person, surrendering your face to someone else is quite an act of intimacy, so by framing the scene tighter, you would have emphasized this moment, you would have highlighted the scene in an extraordinary way.

    Making photography is to know what is essential to keep in the frame, and ignoring what is not necessary. In this case, the magic, the centre of interest is all between these two hands and the face; the shirt, as well as the garbage in the background are far from being desirable in this frame and they completely distract from what this photo is all about.

    You would have focused on the upper half of this photo, framed horizontally, and you were having a stunning shot in your hand, as I really don't see what the lower half can possibly bring to the image, what kind of contribution it makes.

    The moment was perfect, the face framed by the hand was exceptional, the expression is delightful (almost like a ritualistic moment), but by including this shirt that overtakes the rest of the scene, the focal point is diffused and lost through unnecessary details.

    But I salute your guts and initiative to try other subjects than buildings; and you are right, India is a great place to shoot people, as they are as interesting as they are interested. I will keep following your Indian trip through your photo, as I am both jealous of you, but also happy that you have discovered this fabulous country.

    Cheers!

    Hi Mesut,

    The integration of the pedestrian with the mural is very subtle and well seen. I like the fact that we have to look at your photo a couple of second, before realizing what's the visual pun. Good timing and nice idea, well executed.

    Cheers!

    Salut Claude,

    Si cette scène s'était déroulée en Afrique du Sud, les chaussures de cuir et tout le reste auraient disparu en moins de deux minutes... Peut-être même les jeans aussi...

    Belle façon de souligner le retour du soleil sur la capitale, en terme de sujet, de perspective et de composition.

    Je ne connais pas les conditions sous lesquelles tu as saisi cette photo, mais si c'eût été possible, j'aurais bien aimé voir l'arc s'inscrire dans les deux coins opposés; c'était si près de l'être!!!

    Bravo pour ton entêtement à nous présenter autre chose que des maisons et des immeubles, parce que Trekearth ressemble de plus en plus à un site d'agence immobilière.. :-p))

    J'exagère un peu, étant le premier à en photographier à l'occasion et appréciant le genre lorsque c'est bien fait, mais ce site a déjà fait preuve de plus de diversité.

    Ciao!

    André

    Bonjour Giovanni,

    This is a great photo!
    I especially like the way you managed the very atmospheric colours. It could have been a great B&W but the touch of warm colours has given structure and depth to the whole composition and really makes it above average.
    Very well done!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Lorsque vous postez une nouvelle photo vous devez remplir correctement la case "ville" c.-à-d. que vous devez inscrire Saint-Malo et non Saint Malo ceci pour éviter les confusions et simplifier les recherches...

    Merci de bien vouloir corriger l'erreur.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Il y a qqchose de bizarre dans l'orthographe des noms... On écrit Chenonceau - sans X - pour le nom du château mais le nom du village est Chenonceaux - avec X

    Trouvé sur le Net:

    La différence d'orthographe s'expliquerait, selon des sources à confirmer, par une dame Dupin qui, étant propriétaire du château au moment de la Révolution française aurait voulu, par cette suppression du « x » final, marquer sa différence. Depuis lors, le château est majoritairement orthographié sans le « x » final, à la différence de la commune, qui porte invariablement cette lettre finale.

    Pouvez-vous changer Le nom du village? Merci.

    Bien amicalement - Viviane
