[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

My brother Arie in thoughts on the beach of Jurmala at the gulf of Riga.
We made quite a long walk of more than six kilometer and so now and then we took a rest. Here I captured my brother while in thoughts.

PP work, hardly any except for adjusting levels and curves slightly. Firm crop, resize and adding a frame.

Hi Hans,
A nice solitude situation in your presentation. The subject is well placed in this letter-box style crop.
Great composition adorned with marvelous lighting and accurate sharpness.
It really tells a whole story, my friend!

Lovely peaceful atmosphere in this shot as the title suggests. Like the composition and the colours work well together. The subject in the foreground is very clear. Like the blue of the bench.

Bonjour Hans,

this is an attractive composition, as the different elements interact well. I even thought this was taken with a wider lens!
I particularly like the idea of positioning your subject in the very low corner of the frame. Also, the colours are natural and not over-saturated, which gives a soft image.


Hello HAns

Nice capture here. I think it would look nice in B/W also. You captured the perfect look of someone in thought. Nice work


perfect composition, the crop is good too, a nice peaceful shot, well done, tfs,
