Hi Andrija:

This is a great picture. I would love to know more about this place, but the image is wonderful. Thanks for sharing this.

Excelent Benedikt! It's more about the refracted light than the shadows even, but the combination of the two together here is outstanding. It works very nicely in Black & White, good choice.

My only critism is that it would be nice to read some opinion or note about what you were trying for, etc, from you.

Hi Eric:

You have created a wonderful effect here. The water water appears very misty, almost like clouds. There is a really bright area near the horizon on the water in the right hand half of the frame which feels a bit blown out to me, but this is not a big deal. It is a great image and works very well in black and white.

Hi LuDivine:

I like the presentation of this. My biggest problem with it is that the highlights are blown out. Maybe in increasing the contrast you lost some shadow detail and over brightened the highlights. It's a cool image image though and you are certainly on the right track with your choice of desaturating it and then sepia toning.

Hi LuDivine:

Yeah, I think that could be decay. You have to start somewhere with decay and this is the early stage of it. Food for compost.

I like this view of these flowers. It can get to be overwhelming only seeing them in their prime. This is a nice break from that.

Hi LuDivine:

The water drops here are great, and I like that you have captured this long after it finished blooming. I have an adversion to flower pictures because I have developed a feeling of being overwhelmed by the mass quantity of them, but I like this shot. I find it a nice diversion that the flowers that are blooming are in the background left out of focus. Thanks for sharing this.

Hi LuDivine:

There's really not a lot working for this picture, but the expression and tear work and that is what you were going for here I think. The flash reflecting in the center of the iris and the red eye effect are the things I might like to see changed, but it works the way you wanted it to.

Nice work Michel:

Great timing for this. The angle of light creates the perfect angle of shadows against the bricks and working with the angle of the stairs. Is nearly B&W now and is a strong enough image to work as a B&W, the there is really no need to desaturate as the is so little color as is. Love this!
