Very nice winter exploration picture.
machicoulis: Challenge totally missed.Your photo is ok ....... but only three competitors have respected - Disorganized Benches - 3 or more -Reading problem may be .........
I am available this Sunday! The weather forecast looks pretty good.Regards,Mario
Very nice little church!
Hello machicoulis,We are neighbours, sorry my pictures are a little like my English, not very good. Maybe we should ask for a revoting on this one.If you have time, we can meet and go an take some pictures in Montreal or around.Regards,Mario
KodaChrome25: Nice tones in that snow. Congrats!
Thank you KodaChrome25,It was a very cold and windy day!Have a nice day.
quadrox: It's a good picture, but for my personal taste it does not express "simplicity" very well - the snow is too "busy". Otherwise I like it a lot - but with so many good entries I have to make choices, and this is one where I must vote low.
Dear quadrox,Please, feel free to vote according to your judgement and taste.
ConanFuji: I'm blown away by your control of the lighting. Absolutely marvelous. You have to share your secrets to effective portrait photography.
Hi Conan,Well I am glad that you appreciate this portrait, But I do not have any special techniques about portraiture, maybe just good feelings when I observe and enjoy all these people living around the world.Personally, I think that my best photographs are the ones I did not take!Have a nice day,Mario
babalu: Delicious choclady :))
Only in my dreams!
BlancheBarbe: Belle à croquer !...
Hummm c'est bon!
cjf2: This was my favourite. Simple but such beautiful lighting.
Thank you cjf2, I have used a fill-in flash for this one to give some details to the main subject.Have a nice day.
AndreaV: I'm happy to see winning a simple and great photo shot with an amazing fully manual film camera! :)
Thank you AndreaV,An old hammer is still good if you know how to use it!Have a nice day
Doss: Congrats on the win. Nice to see an old photo hold up against modern tech!I'm having trouble scanning my old K64 trannies. May I ask what hardware/software you used?
Oupps!I am using CS6 for post-processing. The Epson scanner comes with their own softwares too.Mario
Thank you Doss,I was using an old Epson scanner (about 8 years ago). But I can recommend and new Epson like the Epson Perfection V600, good for 35mm and medium-format film and slides.http://www.lozeau.com/en-CA/products/peripherals/scanners/epson-perfection-v600-photo/Have a nice day,Mario
ConanFuji: Wow.... 25 years ago. The man must be retired by now. It's nice to see a simple shot winning it.Great job, Mario.
Always a surprise to win a challenge. I think I will retired too!Have a good day.
Very nice picture!
Nice composition, good ambiance, repetitive elements, simplistic duotone effect, I like this one.
I like saturated colour photographs.
My favourite by far!
