    Bonjour Angel.

    J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical. Il donne envie d'emprunter les marches pour entrer dans cette belle maison de pierres. Ce ne sont certainement pas les fleurs qui manquent,. La lumière est superbe.

    J'aime beaucoup le point de vue sur le pont. L'ensemble offre une belle diagonale dans l'image.Le pont semble solide mais le design ordinaire.

    Bonjour Ana,

    J'aime beaucoup cette composition. J'aime beaucoup le cercle rouge au centre qui coupe l'image en deux. Il y a aussi beaucoup de talent dans l'image de droite. La lumière en diagonale offre de très belles ombres sur le mur.

    Hi Aleksandar,

    This photo is simple, and nothing comes in between the man and the sea.

    It is straightforward. It is not sophisticated or complex.

    I would never have done this image.

    But I can really appreciate your own approach, and the feeling conveyed by such a candid depiction, as it forces the viewer to pay attention to this gentleman and coming up with an interpretation of what's going on. Not having read your note, I would have thought he was absorbed in a prayer, a meditating moment or a contemplative serenity.

    This image is simple, distant, not intrusive, but it catches the attention and communicate some kind of spirituality, even if he is busy fishing.

    A photo with lots of merit, probably because it leaves place for interpretation, for the contrast between the humble man facing an endless sea and the impression of remoteness and detachment.

    Cheers!

    André

    Salut Magaly,

    Hallucinant village aux allures médiévales, dont le paysage semble lui servir d'écrin.

    Belle lumière, couleurs saturées mais sans débordement, un ciel dramatique à souhait, c'est du tout beau. Je trouve la composition efficace, avec un bon ratio village/paysage/ciel.

    Travail admirable.

    Hi Kari,

    I guess that I will have to join our colleagues perception and reveal without surprises that I also thought that your thumbnail was presenting a volcano. Now, I can appreciate the optical illusion and realize that it is a light show.

    Quite interesting conditions here, with the top of the mountain fully covered in a dense cloud/fog, while the middle shines under different conditions, like if their was two different micro-climates, layer wise.

    Unusual presentation, captured at the right moment - these phenomenon don't last forever, at least not with that intensity.

    Cheers!

    Ciao Cristina,

    I like your note, it made me laugh.

    As much as I am passionate about photography, my camera remains in my bag most of the time under such conditions, even while being in iconic places.... I just feel depressed and uninspired, knowing that my shots will not convey any special appeal, as without light, there is no photography.

    But you know what, I think that in some circumstances, the subject might suit the crappy weather, like this one you've nailed down. Look, the sky refuses to cooperate in any possible way, but this particular landscape do match the rainy and sad conditions, almost gaining a dramatic aura - like in a Ingmar Bergman movie... The Seventh Seal...

    despite any favorable conditions, you have achieved good contrasts, a wide grayscale range, and an interesting transparency on the shallow water that might have not been possible, should the light would have been different.

    Not a fan of black and white, but this shot has a vintage look that I can't explain, not coming from the subject itself, but from the finish, the impression.

    Quirky title.

    Cheers!

    Salut Daniel,

    Wow! for the colours, I just love these rich earthy tones and their combination with the crisp blue sky. Wow! for the nice and cool curvy perspective created by the rails, really well done. And the main subject is a classy one - I just love old trams - but it is the context in which you have captured it that make it so attractive.

    Overall, an eye-catching piece of work. Well done!

    Hi Craig,

    I think that all Italians have the same hot blooded temper, very dramatic in their reactions, whether they live in Montreal, San Francisco, Australia or their mother land. The kind of reaction that happened to you happens to me all the time, as these guys are all actors, reacting like an opera performer, just for the show. Short fused, expressive and always friendly nevertheless.

    I once had a zuppa di pesce at Luna in New York, asking for more bread in the middle of my meal to the server, only to be replied: "You had enough!!". Twenty seconds later, a basket full of bread was dropped on the table... I like Italians.

    The kitschy tiles mixed with slabs of marble scream Napoli, and the oven have a charm of its own. I like that you have captured the proud man in action, posing for the delighted tourists (that we all are...), and the masterpiece coming out of the flames. Now everyone looking at your shot will want to have a pizza for dinner, but nothing can come close to the real thing...

    Well done!

    Bonjour Jean-Jacques,

    Un château qui a l'apparence d'un jeu Lego (style néolegothique).

    Une vue un peu trop centrée (on en fait tous, parfois volontairement), sans doute dans le but de présenter l'ensemble des remparts. Peut-être aussi que le format panoramique amplifie l'impression pour le château d'être placé au beau milieu de la composition, seul élément imposant de par sa hauteur dans un cadre bien horizontal.

    Ciel parsemé d'un linceul vaporeux qui évite une masse trop imposante de bleu.

    Bonne soirée!

    Salut Phil,

    Je vois celle-ci et je m'aperçois que j'en ai manqué quelques-unes entre temps... J'y reviendrai.

    Assez impressionnant comme effet, parce que peu exploité et très dramatique. Quand on voit l'application de ce filtre, c'est surtout pour les landscapes, mais ça en jète tout autant (sinon plus) dans ce contexte urbain/désolation.

    Pertinent et bien utilisé.

    J'aime la réflexion sur la surface de l'eau, qui étant aussi floue que le ciel, donne une impression d'hyper netteté sur le tremplin et les autres éléments statiques.

    Mais bro, yo, what's going on with your horizon... You can't mess around with water level man, you will create a worldwide tsunami!!!

    À bientôt l'ami!
