    I don't know if you remember me... :-)
    Just had a look at TE. I might come here one or twice a year... And I saw your 10 years anniversary photo. 10 years?! In this world of fleeting moments, where we surf from one social media to the other, it speaks volumes.
    So... let me congratulate you.
    I hope you are happy and that life is good with you...

    Aaaaaaaaaah!
    Simple: one of the best photos I have seen of wresting. Period.
    The timing, the framing are simply perfect. The expression of both men say it all that is to say. Incredible moment.
    But I have to say that technically speaking, it could be a little bit better. There is a white halo around the nose of the second man. And some strange zones here and there, probably because you have "blackened" the background. But, I might be wrong.

    One of those cases where I don't need - nor want - the eye contact. She's looking outside, but I see the rain forming big "X" on her eyes, like if the weather was trying to prevent her to see.
    Well... I'm just playing here! :-)
    I might have been tempted to crop the left side and make it square with the space mostly in front of her eyes. But, it is difficult to resist such a beautiful blurry and creamy red... ;-)

    One of the first thing I was always doing when I was active in TE was to go and check the first photos posted by a photographer. Sometimes, it was surprising. In your case, the first photo is a preview of what will come next. You take photos of children. And, though it is "easier" to do take their photos - children are easier to approach - it is more difficult to take "good" photos of children. Most of the time, you achieve to avoid the clichés. Here is a good example, though not your best. There is something in those eyes who's looking straight in your face, a "Mona Lisa" kind of smile, that makes it good in my opinion.
    One lecturer at our local photo club said that the background is of the utmost importance. Here, it is indeed great.
    Technically, it is excellent as well. I might only try to darken a bit the wall over the shoulder on the right. There is a strange artifact there.
    A late welcome in TE! :-))

    I came here to find that specific photo. Walking in Barcelona, I found another specimen of that species: the sculpted elephant! :-) Mine was standing on his (her?) trunk though! Sadly enough, I had no time to take a photo, and it would have been difficult since it was night time. Nevertheless, in seeing that elephant, I thought immediately about yours. And about the difficulty to make a creative photo with what is already a piece of art. You achieved it by your point of view, your wide angle use, your play with the white, washed out, background, and your framing.

    I was sure I had left a 'critique' in there, but it must have been in the old time, before the deleting of all your photos. Well... It's my pleasure to write another one! :-))

    Hello Teresa!
    I little visit from me. :-)
    This photo made me smile. It's a wonderful, well executed, extremely well framed photo. I might wish a little bit of space behind the head of the boy, but I am simply nitpicking. A perfect diagonal that direct the eyes. The background is also perfect and interesting. A myriad of faces!
    Very, very good photo Teresa!
    Claire
    P.S.: I hope everything is going fine for you!

    I rarely come in TE. But, once in a while, it happens. Today, I open TE and that photo was in the welcome page, in the "Feature photos" section. Well... congratulations! ;-) A very well deserved recognition.

    I don't know if you remember what I wrote more than once about your photos. That though they might not be the most "beautiful" ones, they are the ones that we remember. Like for this photo. I do remember it since the first day I saw it, I think it was in 2006...

    Your photos... Maybe (only maybe) not the "eye-catching" type. Better. They are of the "soul-catching" type...

    One of the rare case where I would go for the same picture without the human presence! ;-)
    Perfect point of view. Wide angle at its best. Very beautiful palette of grays. To my delight!

    How are you dear Rigoletto?
    A little surprise for you. Me! ;-)

    Allo Marc!
    Je suis très, très rarement sur TE et voilà que j'apprends que tu viens d'avoir une jolie petite fille! Jolie, c'est sûr hein?! ;) Toutes mes félicitations au papa et à la maman. J'imagine que tu as déjà quelques milliers de photos d'elle!
    Quant à la photo, c'est un bon moment. On se demande ce qu'il fait là étant donné qu'on ne voit pas la rivière. Aurais-je préféré voir justement cette rivière? Je ne sais pas. Il y a une ligne oblique devant la terre, peut-être vaudrait mieux l'enlever? Je ne sais pas non plus. Comme tu peux le remarquer, j'avoue avoir perdu l'habitude (et l'envie) de faire des critiques de photos. Alors, pardonne-moi!
    Profite de ces merveilleux moments si précieux avec ton petit bijou de fille!

    It took me a while to 'understand' that photo. And, I'll admit, I wasn't very sure about it. And then, I look and look and look again. And I am more and more bewitched ('charmed' in every meanings of this word) by it.
    That face... Big eyes, big smile. Evanescent... And... Am I hallucinating? I see the eye and the face (?) of a horse on the right side.
    Gee... my senses are all confused. But I like that beauty.
    Claire
    N.B.: Nice to see your work again Mrs Filen.

    Gosh! This is a pretty good photo!
    What is great in it? The two plans, that lady in the front, with the umbrella, the bags and speaking to the phone, her posture, her RED dress and all; and the background people, all cramped in the bus shelter, almost all of them looking towards her (or you). Terrific moment!
    What is less good? The cut person in the back. Oh how I wish this person were completely visible, like the rest of the gang, or not there at all. I also wish the sign on the pole seen just over her umbrella wasn't there as well. This could be cloned out without too much work.
    But nevertheless, it is a well composed photo and a good one.

    Battousai? The "Battousai" that I used to know in TE long time ago? :)))
    Well... I'm not around myself most of the time, but a great pleasure to see that you are still alive!
    Surely not your greatest photo, but I like the moment. It reminds me the time I used to smoke and drink (a long, long time ago! ;)). Somehow, I wish the glass was not there. It seems that it is there for no reason whatsoever. At least, if she was holding the glass with her left hand, or something, but now, it is more a hindrance than anything. Well, that being said, I like the pose she has. Cigarettes are so "likable" when you're young and beautiful... ;)
    Not too sure about the second girl. I wish she would have some kind of link with the first woman, if she was looking at her for example. It will reinforce the story. Right now, I don't really know what to make of her, if you see what I mean.
    Gosh... I lost the touch with how to make a critique! Help! :)
    Have fun Pawel!
