    Olá Lucas,
    A splendid capture of this beautiful church. There's planty of engaging detail and a nice complex rhythm going on (the lines of the church and those of the palm trees). Very well done!
    Parabéns e Abraço,

    I like the candid nature of your shot...the dynamic framing of the turban gives a sense of movement through the frame or if he was still a sense of pre-occupation beyond it. A nicely rendered situational portrait!

    Salut Ourania,

    This photo plunges us directly in the field like if we were there, maybe because of the way the trees give the impression to surround the viewer.

    The fortress on the top of the mountain is the focal point, despite its position in the background, while the foreground offers a sense of the place.

    Regards,

    Salut Denis,

    J'aime toujours voir ces jeux de lumière et d'ombre que s'amusent à projeter les nuages, soulignant au passage les courbes du paysage. Le moment a été saisi avec soin, alors que la partie plus obscure en arrière-plan offre l'impression que le village resplendit de tous ses feux. Bonne succession de plans qui augmente l'effet de profondeur.

    Amitiés,

    André

    Hi Chris,

    Catchy vibrant colours from vegetation attract the eyes in the first place, before admiring the details of this temple. An array of man-made and natural splendors.

    Well done!

    Oh my God... You've been in India Craig, so by now, you must be hooked, as there is no destination as exotic and exciting as India, to truly loose all your references.

    Colors, smells, nice people, striking discoveries, awesome food, delhi belly, everything is there to create the most memorable moments..

    Barbers represent a nice theme that I enjoy myself in various situations, and this one is interesting for the expression of the client and the arms of the barber that suggests command and control, while remaining anonymous.

    But Craig, this scene is begging for more light, as you haven't post-processed it in order to bring attention on the face, or at least to illuminate it. The most important part of that frame is actually in the dark, while the shirt is grabbing all the attention!??

    Because the expression is intriguing and defines the emotional link with the subject- a sense of abandon, I would have been instinctively guided to get a closer capture, so the face and the arms would have become the ultimate elements of the image.

    When you think about it, being shaved by another person, surrendering your face to someone else is quite an act of intimacy, so by framing the scene tighter, you would have emphasized this moment, you would have highlighted the scene in an extraordinary way.

    Making photography is to know what is essential to keep in the frame, and ignoring what is not necessary. In this case, the magic, the centre of interest is all between these two hands and the face; the shirt, as well as the garbage in the background are far from being desirable in this frame and they completely distract from what this photo is all about.

    You would have focused on the upper half of this photo, framed horizontally, and you were having a stunning shot in your hand, as I really don't see what the lower half can possibly bring to the image, what kind of contribution it makes.

    The moment was perfect, the face framed by the hand was exceptional, the expression is delightful (almost like a ritualistic moment), but by including this shirt that overtakes the rest of the scene, the focal point is diffused and lost through unnecessary details.

    But I salute your guts and initiative to try other subjects than buildings; and you are right, India is a great place to shoot people, as they are as interesting as they are interested. I will keep following your Indian trip through your photo, as I am both jealous of you, but also happy that you have discovered this fabulous country.

    Cheers!

    Hi Mesut,

    The integration of the pedestrian with the mural is very subtle and well seen. I like the fact that we have to look at your photo a couple of second, before realizing what's the visual pun. Good timing and nice idea, well executed.

    Salut Claude,

    Si cette scène s'était déroulée en Afrique du Sud, les chaussures de cuir et tout le reste auraient disparu en moins de deux minutes... Peut-être même les jeans aussi...

    Belle façon de souligner le retour du soleil sur la capitale, en terme de sujet, de perspective et de composition.

    Je ne connais pas les conditions sous lesquelles tu as saisi cette photo, mais si c'eût été possible, j'aurais bien aimé voir l'arc s'inscrire dans les deux coins opposés; c'était si près de l'être!!!

    Bravo pour ton entêtement à nous présenter autre chose que des maisons et des immeubles, parce que Trekearth ressemble de plus en plus à un site d'agence immobilière.. :-p))

    J'exagère un peu, étant le premier à en photographier à l'occasion et appréciant le genre lorsque c'est bien fait, mais ce site a déjà fait preuve de plus de diversité.

    Ciao!

    Hi Aleksandar,

    This photo is simple, and nothing comes in between the man and the sea.

    It is straightforward. It is not sophisticated or complex.

    I would never have done this image.

    But I can really appreciate your own approach, and the feeling conveyed by such a candid depiction, as it forces the viewer to pay attention to this gentleman and coming up with an interpretation of what's going on. Not having read your note, I would have thought he was absorbed in a prayer, a meditating moment or a contemplative serenity.

    This image is simple, distant, not intrusive, but it catches the attention and communicate some kind of spirituality, even if he is busy fishing.

    A photo with lots of merit, probably because it leaves place for interpretation, for the contrast between the humble man facing an endless sea and the impression of remoteness and detachment.

    Cheers!

    Salut Magaly,

    Hallucinant village aux allures médiévales, dont le paysage semble lui servir d'écrin.

    Belle lumière, couleurs saturées mais sans débordement, un ciel dramatique à souhait, c'est du tout beau. Je trouve la composition efficace, avec un bon ratio village/paysage/ciel.

    Travail admirable.

    Hi Kari,

    I guess that I will have to join our colleagues perception and reveal without surprises that I also thought that your thumbnail was presenting a volcano. Now, I can appreciate the optical illusion and realize that it is a light show.

    Quite interesting conditions here, with the top of the mountain fully covered in a dense cloud/fog, while the middle shines under different conditions, like if their was two different micro-climates, layer wise.

    Unusual presentation, captured at the right moment - these phenomenon don't last forever, at least not with that intensity.

    Cheers!

    Ciao Cristina,

    I like your note, it made me laugh.

    As much as I am passionate about photography, my camera remains in my bag most of the time under such conditions, even while being in iconic places.... I just feel depressed and uninspired, knowing that my shots will not convey any special appeal, as without light, there is no photography.

    But you know what, I think that in some circumstances, the subject might suit the crappy weather, like this one you've nailed down. Look, the sky refuses to cooperate in any possible way, but this particular landscape do match the rainy and sad conditions, almost gaining a dramatic aura - like in a Ingmar Bergman movie... The Seventh Seal...

    despite any favorable conditions, you have achieved good contrasts, a wide grayscale range, and an interesting transparency on the shallow water that might have not been possible, should the light would have been different.

    Not a fan of black and white, but this shot has a vintage look that I can't explain, not coming from the subject itself, but from the finish, the impression.

    Quirky title.

    Cheers!

    Salut Daniel,

    Wow! for the colours, I just love these rich earthy tones and their combination with the crisp blue sky. Wow! for the nice and cool curvy perspective created by the rails, really well done. And the main subject is a classy one - I just love old trams - but it is the context in which you have captured it that make it so attractive.

    Overall, an eye-catching piece of work. Well done!

    Hi Craig,

    I think that all Italians have the same hot blooded temper, very dramatic in their reactions, whether they live in Montreal, San Francisco, Australia or their mother land. The kind of reaction that happened to you happens to me all the time, as these guys are all actors, reacting like an opera performer, just for the show. Short fused, expressive and always friendly nevertheless.

    I once had a zuppa di pesce at Luna in New York, asking for more bread in the middle of my meal to the server, only to be replied: "You had enough!!". Twenty seconds later, a basket full of bread was dropped on the table... I like Italians.

    The kitschy tiles mixed with slabs of marble scream Napoli, and the oven have a charm of its own. I like that you have captured the proud man in action, posing for the delighted tourists (that we all are...), and the masterpiece coming out of the flames. Now everyone looking at your shot will want to have a pizza for dinner, but nothing can come close to the real thing...

    Well done!

    André
