    Hello Klaudio,

    Whoopsss...i love this photo for the expression on the woman's face, it is priceless. The common pedestrian, returning from the super market, obliging with a photograph, i think she has a great attitude, not many would do that. Or perhaps a beautiful woman know how to respect the camera, that of an overseas tourists'. Or maybe she just respect you, the photographer. I think you were someone who could be trusted with a photo. So many ways of looking at this.

    That probably is a "bobby brown" or a "chanel" red, the scarf causally flung around, colour coordinated dark tan bag, i think she is very conscious and confident woman who wants to get it right, she knows the fashion, hence the composure, the demeanour, the strong exterior which comes out so beautifully on her face.

    I am guessing it was overcast, the photo begs for more sharpness, 1/25 with iso 100, but thats ok since this was more of a reaction photo.

    For the eye contact, for a documented photo of a beautiful Iranian woman, i love this photo, show me more of this Klaudio. Ordinary moments from daily life because the ordinary can be just as beautiful.

    Enigma, if she came in your dreams, she would definitely be an enigma ;)

    That's one and a half feet tall, we call it the "tandoori roti" back here. "Tandoor" is the oven and "roti" is bread. The biggest I have seen is the size of a frisbee. Soft to be dipped in gravy and relished. Are you into into Indian food yet ? Or is just too much of spice and masala ?

    That's alright, without the foot. I think bread is that part of the world is harder than here. I can tell you for sure not many Indians will get through that easily. I think it is the flour and the temperature which is responsible.

    And hey, I just celebrated my third anniversary, so this dedication comes at a fitting time.

    Thank your very much.

    Hugs

    Marine,
    Je pars en Inde en janvier. Je penserai évidemment beaucoup à toi et t'enverrai toute la force du peuple du Rajasthan, en essayant de faire des photos aussi belles que les tiennes !
    Bonne chance à toi et je prie pour que cette pétition aboutisse..

    Hey Klaudio..You forgot the lamp, the door knob, i think it is a matter of time there is a selfie on this site, hey, i think should i should post one, who knows, i might get a lot "likes"..

    coming back to the real world, (so called), i think Iranian art is just too beautiful, my brother in my Calcutta home, has acquired a Shahnamah by the Iranian poet, Firdausi, i have seen these depictions, in gold paint in that book, and it is mesmerising, the plates in gold change tones and colours in light. As in the book, the paintings and the poems/stories are on opposite pages, makes it more exciting.

    This you have found on a table, i think its exquisite, have we seen something like this on table tops, i doubt we will ever..

    did the iranians have jewish influences in art, culture etc, like in morocco. I am trying to connect something.

    keep posting these, forget the "enlightened ones" ;)

    regards

    Nicely shot, Burak. The way the dark interior frames the opening for the train makes the train extra special. Well done!

    Lovely photo in its simplicity, Peter. The smooth water and colors really set off those tree roots. An effective addition is the reflection of trees at the top that helps to frame your work in a nice way.

    Another fine photo, Nevyan. The tree is perfectly placed to invite the eye to look at the whole scene. I also like the square format! You might experiment with the colors under and around the clouds. You probably captured them accurately, but they look just a tiny bit muddy to me. Super work!

    This is a very interesting street photo, Wolfgang. The contrast of the hurrying woman and the photos of glamorous women is very engaging! Super composition makes this very effective.

    I like this very interesting scene, Khoa. It makes a pleasant scene. The close perspective is a good choice and to only have the photo crowded with houses. Some of the lights have a starry effect. You might experiment with emphasizing them a bit.

    This has a lovely point of view, Justinas! You might experiment with the sky and trees in the background, as they look an odd color to me, but the photo is really striking with that amazing long exposure!

    Yes, the pixelization from enlargement created some weird artifacts. Nevertheless, I like this old tree and the angle you had chosen from which to photograph it. I suspect this is why photographers all have bad backs, eh Peter? You might try experimenting with idealizing the sky. It is not a lovely blue on my computer, and a little tweaking with color might help. Or try it in black and white? Anyway, it's a fine photo, and enjoyed gazing at it.

    I think the plane wing adds some interest to this shot, Neyvan. While it's a lovely landscape and well composed, the wing really helps tell the story here.

    The lighting does such a great job at setting this couple apart. I also really enjoy how the fuzziness combines with a warm in the background colors, while the subjects are in cooler light. Lovely composition, too.
