[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"Anything I can do, she can do better, she can do anything better than me."
I am not good at portraits, but it seems to be in vogue to show photos of our better halves. So I will cheat and present her differently. This is my dear wife finding the perfect angle for a shot I would surely attempt without even bending a little. I am glad she doesn't take many pictures, because she probably would be better at it than I am (which isn't all that difficult, I admit).
This was taken during a cycling tour in the south of France in spring, same as this one, which portrays her a bit more.

Technically just resized and sharpened.

this is realy a shot that i can imagin ;-))) doing myself ..nice capture Per ..good balance and colors with a very original composition !!

I wonder why you haven't got more comments on this photo. Most of us can relate to those poses while trying to get a good shot. Moreover, your shot has vivid colors and good composition.

Clever shot _ I like the curve of the road away from her shoulder. I might have been tempted to clone out that distracting pole or just crop away the right side.

I believe we can all relate to this pose in one way or another! A delightful candid portrait of your wife at work composing that winning photo. TFS...:O)

Photographer at work. What a great theme, and what a great contribution from you. The pose is what makes this a wonderful reality shot. She looks like she is really putting all her efforts in getting the view captured. Makes me wonder what the view was. Looks like your wife and I both got captured this week.

Sorry out of points for today. - done.
1 for you and 1 for your wife's gracious pose.

Ha, a photographer at work....very nice to see! Sometimes we have to use our elasticity to make a shot, hanging in a tree, lay down in the mud, standing on a table, half and wet in the water, balancing on the side of a ditch and even dangerous capers to GET that shot! Nice seen and.....done, Per!

Good and original shot, Per : the flowers, the vineyards, the road... very good composition.


Hi Per, seems like your wife used a low angle :D
good shot, nice compo and colours,well done!

Great capture and bright, clear colours, very attractive. Your wife must be a very keen photographer to get herself into such a pose. If I tried this I would probably roll down into the road and not be able to get back up again.. :-)

Oh, this is fine art Per! It reminds me "Find Wally" books...cause its always a mess trying to find him in the midle of all those people you know, cause they are so manny and almost equal to him...
Here its the same..how can we find your wife in the midle of so much beautiful flowers?

Funny, very funny :)

I hope I'll never get 'caught' taking pictures, for sure!

You shouldn't say those things about your photographic skills, Per. But that doesn't need to be said as well :)

C u around, Marcel

Thanks for pointing out this picture to me, Per, as it is really a fun one. Tell your wife that she should forgive you as this is the perfect image of a photographer at work as we do get in all kind of position to capture the perfect shot. On top of that, we cannot really see her so no one will ever recognize her on the street so her secret is safe!
