[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Elegance is a synonym for beauty that has come to acquire the additional connotations of unusual effectiveness and simplicity. It is frequently used as a standard of tastefulness particularly in the areas of visual design, decoration, the sciences, and the aesthetics of mathematics. Elegant things exhibit refined grace and dignified propriety.

Dear Baddori,
fine idea, fine take, good cut, superb colors, nice light and bright, good sharp, interesting info, original post.
Thanx for sharing!

Hi Gf

I don't understand how your note, which is a direct copy from Wikipedia about the word "elegance", is relevant to the photo you took which, incidentally, is titled "Woman in Marriage". The note doesn't tell me what inspired you to take the photo, and I don't really know what I am supposed to be looking at. I find my eye roaming around the image looking for somewhere to rest.

Sorry to be so negative negative again.

  • Good

a pretty dress but that's all it is - this is the first time I have read any of your notes as they are far too long and obviously copied from text books - I get the impression you post photos not to receive praise or constructive criticism but as a platform to demonstrate your self importance which is bourne out by your reply to Bob:-
"I have a cultural education "CLASSIC". and my acquaintances are in the circle of the "bridge".
People post on this site to improve their photography not their cultural education

The ultra high ISO here has ruined the details of the dress I'm afraid Gianfranco.
Not sure why such a high ISO was selected, as to me, there looks to be plenty of light around the subject.
This is evident by the almost over-exposed area of the left shoulder, and also the well lit background.

There also seems to be a vast fall off of focus particularly around the right elbow and arm considering the aperture of f4.8 Did you carry out a bit of blur in an image editing tool at all?

Perhaps a little noise reduction may bring back some of the lost details, but perhaps (from your own words) being an expert in the Nikon F2 AIf darkroom era, you already know the idea and reasons behind using high/low light sensitivity film?

In digital photography however, the same rules apply to the ISO settings so maybe this was an accident on your behalf?

Pretty dress though, so thanks for showing us that.
