    I think the workshop photo is beautiful too, goes well with the story, your journey, i don't think i can go through all your photos and stories just yet, but a few that i have read are very interesting. these are jewels from the past, great documentary work. Photos from Afghanistan evoke a strange magic...

    thanks Gert

    Quite an uneasiness seeing a photo from Aleppo, after all that i have seen, heard and read about this city under siege and others too, the war, the bloodshed i can understand, but the destruction of historical sites, old mosques etc is very confusing, are they trying to re-write history..

    i can feel the cold stone on the ground, i think you share all your photos from Syria, give this site something else to appreciate and talk about, not just pretty nature photos..

    thanks Fahri

    i would prefer the horizontal frame instead of the square, but the perfect choice to present this in monochrome, great graphic appeal and the expession on the mans face is a great bonus..well taken, given that you took this while surfing yourself ;)

    play safe !

    Hey Elaine, been browsing your gallery, your bangladesh photos are avery honest account, realistic, i need to take a a more detailed view later, but can't get past this one without acknowledging how good this photo is. the light phufffffff...is superb it a great double portrait, the sidelight is so soft and delicate, creates such a 3d effect around the faces. you could have been a step backwards, a little space at the bottom could have been perfect. the indifferent nd the inquiring face create a unique poise for portrait.

    Well done.

    Havent i see enough from the Himalayas, south of france, from canada etc. But his one has some amazing light that makes it stand out from a group of thumbnails !!

    pretty landscapes will be photographed a million times and will always look the same, look pretty, so when we anticipate innovative povs and read unusual light conditions well is when we get something new like this one..

    This is a beautiful woman and you have caught her in great poise, however i think she is too tight or is this a crop ? i have a feeling there was more balance to the scene, i wish there was more isolation and depth between the subject and the background.

    that apart, i think this has good documentary value, good details and an informative note to go with it..

    well done.

    I am not sure, could they be asking for money or creating a fuss ? i mean tourists all over the world, photograph this tribe and others too. they could be spoilt ? they would also know that some photos could sell the photos in their respective countries, use it commercially.

    how do you deal with these contacts ?

    This one is so artistically shot, the overall appeal is just amazing, the use of the warm tones and the light makes it surreal.

    Hey Rose, well, i just dissevered your photos from the south Nam, it is just fantastic, i think you have brought Namibia to the pages of TE with great appeal, the kind of stuff that would make people want to think about Namibia. I want to go there too. I think all your photos deserve appreciation for the effort, variety and presentation and overall appeal. Great work. I might want to mention the harsh colours, could you be using a warming filter ? Or is it just your equipment, a constant is the narrow aperture at wide angle which works very well.

    In this one i like the strong curve of the dead tree/branch, i think it leads us into the simplicity and depth of the composition very well.

    ciao

    Hey Wolfgang,

    The diagonal balance, makes the photo. Museums are a great place to make original photos, but for the supervisors, they freak when they see tourists with a phone in the hand, let alone a camera..

    personally i like to irritate them by makes suspicious actions with my camera ;)

    Its a tough job i guess.

    There is so much to know about mining and digging, be it sierra leone, liberia..senegal and other countries. its not just the diamond and the gold, other precious metals too. What can be seen quite often is children forced to be a part of labour, but not the case here, i would love to see the view of the entire hill..

    quite a fresh photo, relief from blue skies and buildings..

    nice one Ana

    Thats a creative one, i have seen twilight photos of industrial plants with the moon the bg, but this one seems very spontaneous and well though, the isolation and the subtle lines of the tower is just perfect !

    Hey Feyza,you have nice pics of turkey, i managed to upload just a few since i had transition in my personal life, but you have presented your photos very well, some reallly interesting ones i want to comment on. this one i start with since i was in istanbul for a few and i has missed the Tower, to my rescue was Deniz, he is from TE and lives in istanbul, so after dinner he walked me dowtown around the Tower, I almost missed it. So this is what it looked like in city lights !

    nicely taken, who carries a tripod ;)
