I suppose the single purpose behind every intelligent photograph taken by a photojournalist is to tell; that is, to tell others what we have seen; to pass onto others a piece of information we have obtained by observation and preserved it photographically forever. Allow me to quote Ernst Haas: ’You see what you think, you see what you feel, you are what you see … If with the camera you can make others see it – that is photography.’ I should like to extend this remark by Ernst Haas by adding just one more line, just one line which to a certain type of photographer, myself included, makes all the difference in the world: “If with the camera you can make others feel what you have felt – that is photography.’ To me this capacity to express in photography a personal emotional experience transforms the status of a photographer from that of a person with a camera to that of an artist with a cause. - Jozef Gross -
The photographic enthusiast likes to lure us into a darkened room in order to display his slides on a silver screen. Aided by the adaptability of the eye and by the borrowed light from the intense projector bulb, he can achieve those relationships in brightness that will make us dutifully admire the wonderful autumn tints he photographed on his latest trip. As soon as we look at a print of these photographs by day, the light seems to go out of them. It is one of the miracles of art that the same does not happen there. The paintings in our galleries are seen one day in bright sunshine and another day in the dim light of a rainy afternoon, yet they remain the same paintings, ever faithful, ever convincing. To a marvelous extent they carry their own light within. For their truth is not that of a perfect replica, it is the truth of art. - E. H. Gombrich

Art is a world unto itself, but a man in a photograph taken in and your character.
To tame the machine and set it for your needs is perhaps the easiest, but have their own style that is unique.
I personally like the motives of Orthodox shrines because I was fascinated by my faith, but at the same time and I love the beautiful details of nature that are soothing.
Finally, I love the daily scenes, concerts and other events from around the world.
Very nice work with nice pattern and excellent composition.
All the best, dear friend.
