Photography is not just a means of seeing the world, but a vehicle to understand ourselves. On individual and social levels, photography is a way of documenting our lives, capturing important moments, places, and experiences, and sharing those moments with others. - Tim Mantoani
Who knows what a photo taken today may come to represent in ten, twenty… perhaps fifty years. Photography represents fractions of seconds, preserved and then put away for minutes, hours, days, years or decades before they are shown again to bring these moments to life. - Tim Mantoani -
In the corporate world, photography is an integral component of commerce, advertising, and information transfer. Photography brings the world to us: art, architecture, fashion, nature, war, and far-off lands. Virtually every aspect of our daily lives is influenced by images and to such a degree that we rarely even think about it. Photography has become commonplace, expected. - Tim Mantoani -
The power of photograph, both in moving and still form, has greatly influenced the development and evolution of culture, and humans as a species. - Tim Mantoani -
Photography happens in fractions of seconds. If you totaled the precise time it took to make every image in the book and combined them, it would only amount to a few seconds. In each image, in every frame, there is the moment when the photographer chose to record the image. It is not the camera that makes the picture, it is the photographer. - Tim Mantoani

An artistic composition in good B&W rendering. The nearest fence creates a good foreground and the second fence becomes part of the focus of the composition as it goes parallel to the large overhanging branches. There is a peaceful and contemplative atmosphere.

I like the atmosphere in this one, something relfective, perhaps lonesome, the simple moment and the space around this man is contemplative, and a photographic style with some substance.

artistic shot. For me it is a melancholic atmosphere of a thoughtful man who is walking in a empty park. I like the depth in this shot created of the fence in the foreground. B&W was an excellent choice here, well done!
Have a nice evening.

Good vertical format to frame the scenery that comprises palisades, big trees, seat and the alone man, what an impressive view from the park, artistic version in grey tone, it is look like a drawing too, well done.

Black & white is the perfect choice for this picture. There is a clear feeling of "noir" in the scene, a very interesting view!

This may be a picture for posterity. She is beautiful, and raise questions. The composition is clever, the quality is good. Bravo.

I am no big fan of black and white pictures, maybe is these picture an exception, through the man middle of the picture.
Exactly is these man a little bit look to itself, or a little bit depressive or simple are alone middel of the forest.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
