Hi Ewa,

You did great composing this image . . two portrait persons . . Fine detail and very sharp . .
Just miss the eyes which are not lighted . . but I love this presentation . .
I like to get closer and focus to their face, and it may show a more detail skin . .
Great shot . .


Many thanks for your kind words on The beginning .

:-)) will be back this afternoon

Well done Ewa!

This is a great capture of these two Masai men. The monochrome works well here in accentuating the shadows cast across their faces. Good choice.

Having visited the Masai in Kenya previously I recall their tunics have vivid colours, particularly red, so a colour posting would I'm sure have been good also.

NIce photo and POV. Congrats and TFS. :-)

Bardzo dobrze uchwycona scena, faceci sa w rozne strony zwroceni co dodaje naturalnosci - fajnie, ze zastosowalas tu sepie - zastanawiam sie jak im nie goraco...
Z pewnoscia napatrzylas sie tam na rozne ciekawe rzeczy - ja mowiac szczerze ciagle balbym sie chorob tropikalnych.
Serdecznie pozdrawiam - Tomek

Hello Ewa,

An interesting posting!
The light seems to have been very strong but the shadows work well at defining the contours of the faces. Lovely close composition!

I think it would have been interesting to show a colourted version as a workshop!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Many thanks for your comments on 'Red - a rose like fire'.

Hello Ewa,
I like this photo very much. Its amazing the «dialogue of silences» that it breathes. How do I say this? By the position side by side of the bodys,underlined by vertical lines vs. horizontal lines. And the monochrome option works great. Congratulations, mb.
