    Hi Chris
    A fine compo with great atmosphere given by the cold colour tones.
    I like the big space given to the reflection...

    Hello Andy,

    This is a wonderful portrait of the young woman, bearing an infectious warm smile. However, if you don't mind, I am going to do a very simple workshop on the photo, in order to illustrate a recently discovered principle of composition.

    Christopher Tyler, a British born psychologist practicing in San FranciscoIt, discovered in 1998 that in almost all great single-subject portraits, one eye passes through the vertical bisector of the frame. This is true of Leonardo's few but great portraits, Rembrandt's countless self-portraits, even Picasso's works, and this could be the leading or the trailing eye. Accordingly, I cropped the image a little on the right to get the subject's left eye close to bisector. This is a simple principle that is never taught in art schools, but the greatest of all painters appear to discover the practice independently, and inadvertently. This is a useful principle for photographers to know about. It appears that we focus on one eye. Take a look at "Rembrandt at 400". I wrote about this principle in a book I wrote about Leonardo, "Math and the Mona Lisa."

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Bonjour, Mon Cher ami Philippe,

    As usual you give us a superb autumn view, and as you do sometimes, submit a beautiful poem to accompany it. I just returned from a lengthy trip to the South Pacific, where they are just in Spring (Printemps) and ascending into summer, we are in Autumn and descending into Winter. They do not have the beautiful colors of Fall, but then we do not have their warming weather.

    Warm regards, my friend,

    Bulent

    Hi Piotr.From the mountains to the sea, you are showing us the natural beauty of your country.A very atmospheric shot with a sense of duality between light and shade, plus a rainbow pops in to add to the tug-of-war. Has that man found the end of the rainbow and has put the pot of gold in his bag? Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Hi Malgo. Nic to know that your hearing and eyesight have improved (not that anything was wrong with either) but now you are guaranteed of lasting effectiveness. The colours of the pavilion are a little too gaudy for my taste but it is shown to the best advantage by your POV. Ah, to see the faithful, and one in tears! Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Salam Ali. Wonderful portrait. He looks like a poet, an artist, a modern-day Hafez. Great light management and sharpness. Danos's comment remind me of what a techer in Tabriz said to me- that in East Azerbaijan real Persians are to be found, the others are Greek/ Persian. I found that comment funny because our guide kept saying that the people there don't speak properly and he found it difficult to understand them sometimes.Regards. Klaudio.

    Bonsoir Roland,
    the contrasts are striking while the scene looks spontaneous and quiet, a very playful effect that engages the viewer. Daily life and graphism, real life and commercial glamour, neutral tones and captivating colours. The tight composition is superb, there's enough space for movement, I wonder if walking like this is fun. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,
    Ourania
