He seems to oblivious that you are taking his portrait as well. Good capture. Well done.

Great capture. You have the exposure, focus, and depth of field just perfect for this old building. Nicely done!

I can see why you were drawn to this tree. It has a very graceful shape, and you captured that very well. Nice post.

(BTW - I hate added frames !!!:)

Hi John:

Yeak, uploading at such a low resolution will do that (increase the noise). I have a lot of pictures that I have tried to upload to this site and then deleted because of that problem.

On some pics I was able to select areas with no sharp details and use the despeckle filter in Photoshop to eliminate the worst of it, but if you do this to the entire image, it just makes it look out of focus. Wish I had better advice. I'm sure that there is someone out there using some type of software that can fix the problem more easily.

This is a really great picture and I'm sure that your original version at a higher res has none of the noise that you noticed with the uploaded version.

Wonderful use of existing surroundings for a frame. I wish you would have left it that. The added frame just detracts. This picture stands out great on it's own merrit without the need to play it up with a fancy PP frame.

Very nice photo. I love it.

That is so cool! It looks like two little strawberry people are sharing a drink. Very cute.

Stunning Picture. I would like to see more background, but this works very well for commercial style photography. There seems to be a couple of white spots that maybe don't belong, one of these is in the frame at about 1:00 and the other is towards the center from this one.

Very cool picture, I like it a lot.

Hola Alejandro:

Great composition on this. It works very well in Black & White. The highlights are getting very close to being blown out from being a little too bright.

I have seen the background replaced with black so much on TL that it's becoming cliche' to me. I might like this better if the background were left in the shot and maybe darkened and/or blured some if you think this helps draw the focus onto the flower more. Having the blackground blackened out is great if you want the picture to look very commercial, and maybe this is your goal.

Hola Alejandro:

This is a cool shot. I think if I had shot this, I would have included more wall beneath the window. If the window were a little higher in the composition it would feel more balanced to me. It's a very well shot photo though. Thanks for uploading this.

Great shot Alejandro. You have the contrast/brightness setup perfectly for this reflection, which is the main focal point, so this works perfectly. The strip of sky at the very top of the frame is a little bright, but I had to search for some small fault to mention; this does not detract from the image at all, it's great the way it is.
