    hello john,
    Ann said exactly what I wanted to say - the beautiful clarity of the composition and the reduction to three essential elements (the artist, the background and the spectator), the perfect aperture to show and blur at the same time the lady...
    the excellent details of the foreground subject, caught at the right moment complete the picture.
    Lovely street shot indeed!

    Lindisfarne!
    as a fan of Bernard Cromwell's saga of Uthred of Bebbanburg I say: thank you for giving an image to a place that in my imagination, book after book, I tried to picture surrounded by Viking ships and battered by the elements...
    I agree with Gert that size does matter here - the castle would have almost disappeared in the background in the old days of the 350KB pics... :)
    love the contrasty b/w - you should indeed do it more often :)

    hahahahahah!
    this is a good one :)
    I remember how I didn't like westerns when I was younger, somehow I didn't get the slow motions, the delays in the action, the long silences...
    then I started watching them in English, and after many years of films and movies I started to appreciate them.
    Sergio Leone took westerns into a whole different level - and I only understand that now :)
    thanks for this cinematic citation :)

    Salut André.
    Comment vas-tu ? Il s'agit d'une magnifique portrait et j'adore le regard dans ses yeux. La lumière est très belle aussi. Tu sais, nous avons quitté le Zimbabwe 3 jours avant que tu aies pris cette photo. Mais depuis les chutes de Victoria. Je n'ai pas osé prendre en photo les gens dans la rue comme une pauvre dame albinos avec ses deux enfants.

    ciao andrea,

    ti invidio l'avere Venezia cosi vicino, con la sua luce e le sue pietre (tanto per citare un "veneziofilo")... non ci vengo da diversi anni e mi piacerebbe tornarci, perche' ho tonnellate di foto fatte a Venezia con ogni macchina fotografica che ho posseduto in passato - dalle usa e getta della Kodak, alla Nikon analogica, alla Fuji e alla Leica digitali... mi mancano le foto con la Nikon D :)
    trovo questa immagine altamente atmosferica (e non nel senso meteorologico) - la linea che confonde il cielo e la laguna e' cosi sottile che potrebbe anche non esserci. la barca sembra persa in un paesaggio onirico, o fantastico, senza sapere cosa attraversa... perlomeno fino a quando non si alzera' la nebbia :)
    buon fine settimana!

    hi craig,
    sometimes we are the worst judge of ourselves, we see defects and shortcomings where others don't and prevent others from enjoying nice pictures like this one - thank God whatever sharpness you thought this picture lacks didn't stop you form posting it ;)
    I like very much how the men look at you but the mother looks shyly away form the lens, still smiling...

    hello dear takero,

    as usual your shots are both technically impressive as well as heart-warming and endearing... I love the moment you captured here, with this young father and his son looking as the bigger or the smaller version of each other... great light management and fantastic bokeh.
    Greetings from rainy, humid Amsterdam!

    hi Mesut,

    beautiful portrait, her expression is not your usual "camera flirting" and that makes it all the more interesting. I like the way the henna painting adds drama to her young hands.
    Somehow I can picture her as a grown woman, she has one of those faces that seem already projected in the future...

    hi gert,
    yes it does - especially in places where, as you say, the tourists take over and locals have no right to enjoy their city anymore. I was born in Rome and live in Amsterdam, so I know exactly how that feels ;)
    I am glad we can finally upload bigger pictures, somehow some images (like this one) need to be seen in a bigger format in order to convey the right feeling of the space they were taken in.
    Have a nice weekend!

    I don't know if you remember me... :-)
    Just had a look at TE. I might come here one or twice a year... And I saw your 10 years anniversary photo. 10 years?! In this world of fleeting moments, where we surf from one social media to the other, it speaks volumes.
    So... let me congratulate you.
    I hope you are happy and that life is good with you...
