    Hello Wolfgang,

    WE experienced something similar, in the U.K.
    The clouds disappeared and the temperature dropped!

    It is a lovely view to enjoy from the warmth of the building!
    The horizontal layers of different colours and textures guide quite naturally inwards and upwards.
    The snowy pinnacle is very nicely detailed by the light and shadows and I just love how the slightly lower peak is peeping from the safety of the conifers!

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Bulent,

    What a fascinating history.
    How strange that the correct gender is forbidden to act what happens in real life ... it's almost in denial!

    It's a very well taken photograph, crisp, clear, well composed and with glorious colours, lighting and reflections.
    I'm amazed that the actors don't stumble over their robes!
    I wonder how long it takes to get the actors ready for a performance.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    I can remember summers like this when I was a kid.
    Like the colours you have used. Good Image.

    Dag Gerrit

    Mooie close-up. Hoog standpunt, maar zo krijg je wel die mooi uniforme achtergrond. De actualiteit van het nieuws zorgt voor extra betekenis bij deze foto. Of ze nu echt het vriendelijkste volk ter wereld zijn, dat laat ik even in het midden (er zijn er zo veel), maar ik hoop alleszins dat de wereld er geen probleemgebied bij krijgt. Er zijn er al genoeg.

    Groeten

    Hello Rob

    Yes: it's the disconcerting scale thing that makes this image work so well. You did the right thing to include real people up close: I'm sure Ron Mueck would approve, and say it adds to his work, and makes his point perfectly. Unsettling and disorienting.

    Hello Benny

    A fine informal environmental portrait. You were quite close: surprised he didn't see you, or that his supervisor didn't shoo you out of the building site! Is that yellow cast a result of Shanghai's smog or a warm-up Photoshop filter?

    Hello Malgo

    Pere Lachaise is best visited in Winter, don't you think? You've caught the chilly feel of the place, despite the sunny background. I went there to see the tomb of Francis Poulenc...

    Hello Jasmis

    Your photograph radiates sadness. It's the monochrome, of course, the neglected look of the place, the perfunctory graffiti, but mainly the body language of the man, leaning forward, looking down, looking exhausted. But it's easy to read emotions into a scene that simply aren't there. For all I know, he's perfectly happy; his bags are full, and he's off home to cook himself a nice meal. I prefer to respond to your visual clues, however: sadness, hopelessness...

    Hello Roland

    I love this, and not just because it's in b/w (though that helps!) I particularly like the effect of two pictures in one: the close view of the cafe people, and the far view down the street. Great front to back sharpness too (can't tell what aperture you were using, as TE can't get its act together with the EXIF data). Proper street photography.

    Regards

    Magical shot. Taken a while ago now, but none the worse for that. Love the overall blue tones. And I saw Alexandra skiing on Facebook! Were you too busy shooting movies to bother with the old still camera this weekend??

    Hello Gert

    Just couldn't resist your title! And the photograph ain't bad either. I like the vertical format, and the great front to back sharpness: no EXIF data obviously, but I wonder what aperture you were using. No way you'd remember of course! A genuine tranche de vie.

    Hello Serge

    A fine portrait of the city: it's nice to see the waterfront, and boats in particular! Good colours. Is the vignette a result of a lens hood or a deliberate decision made in the editing phase?

    Hello Klaudio

    I'm surprised that this isn't taken on a macro lens, and equally surprised by the depth of field you've managed: at these close distances DoF can often be only a couple of centimetres. There's no accurate EXIF data (thanks to TE's long-standing failure to keep this site working properly), but I surmise a small aperture, and therefore maybe a tripod. Enough of the techie nerdishness. This is a truly beautiful creation: a landscape in miniature! Lovely.

    Regards

    A strange and fascinating shot. Stars up in the sky, great use of artificial light and blue blue blue snow. Tee walking figure appears ghost-like in the image. A bit unsettling, beautiful.

    Ha Rob!

    Duane Hanson kon natuurlijk niet in de serie ontbreken. Vorig jaar was er een prachtige overzichtstentoonstelling van de man in het erg lovenswaardige Museum van Elsene. Wel helemaal anders dan Ron Mueck natuurlijk, namelijk écht hyperrealisme.

    Opnieuw staat de interactie tussen kunst en kijker hier weer mooi centraal. Mama wijst zoonlief op een van de (spijtige en soms irritante) regels van het musueumbezoek: overal afblijven! Grr...
