  • You'll probably be criticized for this pic, both for the focus behind your subject and for a ton or so of broken rules. Me myself - and I'm not a portrait guy - can easily see it. But you got a ...
  • Thank for your comment! The effect was achieved by GIMP, a freeware quite popular here in Europe. My friends used to joke on me telling me GIMP is crap, but I made them change their mind with sepia ...
  • This is a very quick B&W version. I desaturated the original, added some contrast and then played a little with the curve to recover some contrast on the right side of the pic, were the wall was ...
  • This is the original pic of the monastery. Here you clearly see some roof portion are to be restored yet. This is a very important Armenian monument, so restoration is seriously considered. Just ...
  • Hi Tusk24, and thank for your comment. Manarola was founded during the roman empire, but its position isn't the best you can ask for, so the village was several times assaulted, destroyed or simply ...
  • In the next days I'll show also B&W version and even the original, as steve23 asked. In this WE I simply had no more spare time than what's needed to write these lines...
  • Thanks for the kind words. I used a kit lens, the Nikon 18 - 140. It's an incredible lens for its price, especially at the short end. Its predecessor, the 18 - 105, was even better. Unfortunately ...

    Someone may say this is the picture that can't be shown but in full color. Well, colors were great at the sunset, but I like this B&W version...
  • I don't like the first, too abstract to my taste, while I like a lot the second. The dirty alley, the small grain of the picture, the garbage and the stairs above the road level...everything make ...
  • Replied in Foggy Morn
    All that dark foreground looks a little "sombre", to me, but the trees on the background, the houses in the fog, the fog itself, are really nice. Good pic!
  • Nice pic, really, even if the framing is vaguely odd. I don't absolutely mind about the lamp post. Better, I'd increase a little clarity, but it's just a personal taste.
  • Created discussion thread Tat'ev monastery in sepia
    I lately got passionate about this old looking picture style. What do you think about? Do you spot something I could / should do better? A very remote place, both in space and time...
  • Created discussion thread Test picture
    Just a test for my (at that time) new 35mm. It turned out a nice picture, what do you think?
  • Replied in Makeup
    Good subject but colors are slightly weird. B&W version works better.
  • Replied in Polina bathing
    To me, they're really good shot. I don't mind the overexposure nor the heavy make up. On the opposite, I think they really works well together: that lady is really astonishing with that make up, ...
  • I didn't know this SW...perhaps it's worthy a try, since the effect on the first shot looks really good. I'm not so sure about what it did on the second, the enhanced shot looks fake enough to my ...
  • I thought the weak side of the first pic were the color, so I also posted the second, but I too prefer the first, mainly for the composition. Unfortunately the lake water wasn't plain calm, ...
  • Thank you for your time and tips, Sabrina81. You're right, the only thing I can say is that 2 years ago I was really ignorant in post production!
  • I too don't feel the vintage here, even if I think they're quite a good series of portrait and this girl can't but be glad of them. In #5 the girl got a really good pose, even if the shot seems to ...
  • Created discussion thread Bohinjsko jezero
    This autumn I had to skip my traditional trip to Slovenia... :-( Therefore, I took out old picture. These are quite good, I think, what's your opinion? OK, saturation isn't the best...but I often ...
