Great holmertz 2015-02-09 10:43

Hello Paul,
You show us this time three remarkably elegant compositions, all of which could have done well as an official upload. Although lacking human life they all make a very vivid impression thanks to the richness of details and attractive patterns. This one makes me think of an architect's vision of a planned project. It is so well composed and uses the light so efficiently. Although slightly sterile it is still a fascinatingly varied view.
Kind regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Where was everyone ?

Hi Gert,

During Christmas holiday I have visited a few places in Portugal.
In Lisbon and Porto it was nearly high season, especially around New Year.

But in the towns in the interior of the country I was about the only visitor.
So I have lots of pictures of monuments, beautiful buildings, etc. with nobody on ...
Each time I look at one of these pictures I think of you and I know you will not fully appreciate them.

I have been thinking of cloning a few persons on these pictures but I'm really not that good in Photoshop.
So I'm afraid you will see a few more posts without human life.

As soon as I have time I will look in my archive for a picture with people on, real live persons! But sorry, it wasn't possible in Elvas when I was there.

But of course I'm very glad you wrote positive criticism for images that aren't your style. Thank you so much!

Best regards from Belgium,
Paul

Hello Paul,
I really don't need people in every photo as long as there is something else to catch my attention and interest. It's just that empty ordinary streets, empty squares or empty outdoor cafés look very... well, empty.
Regards,
Gert
