    Beautiful picture, Luko. Do you notice how cameras have an influence in the way one looks, and the way one searches for light and color and framing on photography? I'm also working primarily with digital SLRs these days, and it is surprising to me how the tool discreetly shapes the work.

    Happy to see something new. I'm finishing a new series for PH, it's been a long time since last time I've done some flanerie on sites like these.

    Great picture, José. Have you ever read Gourevitch's work on Rwanda?

    Thanks for sharing these documents.

    GREAT, Luko. From the silhouette in the foreground to the same level boy with the money and the people triangle pointing to the sea, every shown face expresses something.

    Very happy to see you back!

    Wonderful, Asma. Perfect framing, delicate but strong shadows.

    She must be reading Imru al-Qays ibn Hujr Al-Kindi. I believe the beuaty in his poetry is shining through her face, as well as through your eyes. A hanging poem, a gazing look.

    Congratulations!

    Very nice picture, Ronni. Strong, well-balanced composition. Beautiful movement suggested by the book and the magazines, a curve that suggests one single book. Smart use of the edges of the picture, and the minimal but supreme detail of the woman's highest toe matching the hill's highest point.

    Summa cum laude.

    Hehe, this is funny after reading your note. These signs are plastered all over my apartment complex. :) I assume it is because of the asbestos. One place is on my ceiling. Apparently popcorn ceilings from buildings in the seventies and earlier are almost assured to be made from asbestos.

    Modern parking garages also apparently use asbestos even today for insulation.

    The rainbow of colors and bold signs really capture the essence of a carnival perfectly. The shadows are spooky! What are they actually? How can they be? To me it looks like the devil himself telling a little boy something, but what? Instructions to do something? A warning?

    Adi, first of all, I missed seriously your note. What is this place?

    And what a fantastic picture. I love these different planes re-arranged to form a single image. The woman is just in the right the position, and also the man - is one slapping otherīs face?

    Wonderful job!

    Nice shot, Recep. An interesting lighting, with key light coming down and reflecting on the table, letting us see the faces without strong shadows. The colors also play an interesting role - specially the purple and red. Very beautiful.

    Superb baroque lighting. Really amazing. A classical posture for the girl - on foot slightly hiding the other, as the etiquette demands, arms protecting the body, showing shyness - as for the dog. A shy princess, indeed. I am so impressed I canīt talk to much, but stare at the picture.

    Cheers, please!

    Very beautiful shot. I like the way the curve of the tree follows the woman on the left. The attitude of the other woman deepens the feeling of intimacy. The stair, even hidden on the background, explains the scene wonderfully. And the fabric onthe ground, of course, adds movement and texture. Have you tried other angles?

    I like that very much. The strong diagonal coming from lower right expresses the mood in a way you couldnīt do if it was beginning on the lower left. And the wall adds weight. The brick wall almost shouts: "dead end!"

    Beautiful work, Animesh.

    A beautiful photo, Alexandre. Since youīve not divided the frame into four equal parts, you created movement, and gave balance to the picture by fitting the subject on the smaller side. The audience reflected remembers me ghosts, I liked it very much. Anyway, a polarizer wouldnīt be of much value - it works better when the reflective surface is not a parallel to the lens.

    Congratulations.

    Very good picture, Animesh.

    The women behind the display remember mannequins. A strange effect. The reflections game is fantastic: "David Griffin" half-layered over the carīs side, and the wheel-legged woman in the background - fixing a branch! Pure surrealism.

    How did you get all theose grain? Have you pushed the film?

    A beautiful photo, Animesh. One of the most difficult things in photography to use the sparse elements you find in a place to tell a story, or to make a synthesis of the place, and you got it: the wheels remember Indiaīs national flag - a wheel, a solar symbol, a mandala. Amd the three man, the three gods - Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, creating, mantaining and destroying the universe in order to begin it again, a cycle that never ends and is represented by the circle. Astonishing, indeed.

    Have you ever tried Ilford HP5+? It increases the contrast. For some pictures, much better than the (sometimes too) classical Tri-X.

    Congratulations.
