Aller me promener au cimetièrre est toujours une belle opportunité a des moods intéressants! Le banc avec la végétation derrière me plaisait. J'ai pris mon petit trépied dépanneur, d'où cette proximité avec le gazon. Et un peu de traitement pour donner un ton un peu lourd, méditatif...


Take a walk in the cimetary give me always god opportunity for interestings moods! The bench with vegetation behind, please me a lot. I used my emergency little tripod and this is why we have the feeling to be very near the grass. I did some little processing to give the exact mood i need from that one, I little heavy and meditative...

Hey Were,
Very much like the presentation of this image. Great setting and the pose works well here. Like the processing in the middle with the kind of wash coloring on your clothing. The side panels with the inversion and kind of greenish tint is ok for me, but the middle imagery/processing hits me better.
Althought the sides processing does add to the contrast and feel of this autoportrait.
Overall, its pretty freakin cool and I enjoy viewing this image.

je vois ta photo un peu autrement: oui, elle a l'air meditatif, mais pas au centre, ou regne le mauve, qui est une couleur gaie:) donc: c'est un lieu meditatif, mais ta presence l'a transforme dans un lieu joieux:)

escuse-moi si je me trompe:D

tres intressante photo
felicitation!

I like this self portrait of you Alain. The mood has been created well with the change of colours. I like the grass in the foreground somehow because it reflects that you are in a cemetary. The middle border is good. At fist I thought it was part of a wrought iron fence.

Good portrait and very creative use of frames...nice to meet you Mr. Wolf.

Hello Alain and nice to meet you:) A very interesting and unusual SP you presented us with and a very good one. Lots of atmosphere: the middle section looks like an old photo, and the sections at the sides look a bit ghostly. Plenty of mood!
Regards,

Shelly.

Very nice self-portrait. It gives me a feeling of being taking a long time ago.

A cemetary is a place to be heavy and meditative... I like all your PP work Alain and your POV is good for that too. Well done.

Self protrait in a cemetary - different and unique Alain. Your POV, plaus the PP work on the sides ogf the photo all add up to an intesting work and very well done ... TFS,
Sam

Tu nous présentes ton côté sérieux maintenant, Were, avec cet auto-portrait au cimetière. J'aime bien ta pose (j'aurais peut-être préféré que tu enleves ton sac à dos mais j'imagine que tu l'as toujours donc il fait partie de toi) ainsi que le traitement en tryptique. Bravo!

Quelle etrange photo! Beau traitement de l'image! Beaux contrastes des couleurs! Et je trouve que tu as rajeuni de dix ans sur cette photo! Les cimetieres te vont bien! Tres interessant comme photo! Michel

Very good self portrait Alain. Your pp treatments work very well and I like the color choices and the negative images on the sides. Cemeteries make wonderful place to shoot. Soo many interesting objects and scenes and nobody complains.

nice work...
you managed it successfully...
the combination of the colors are nicely done...
congratulations wolf...

Salut A.
belle photo, etrange sur les cotes, tres sombre presque effrayante.....un soir de pleine lune......,
et par contre au milieu, plus lumineuse, avec ta presence cela redonne un peu de chaleur, de vie a ces endroits qui peuvent parfois etre tres tres beau!
ici les orthodoxes en font de vrais petits jardins avec pres de toutes les tombes des bancs ou ils passent tout le dimanche apres midi, a discuter a plusieurs mais pres du defunt....

bonne compo, et le point de vue venant du sol et super!
A-Fr

like the PP great colors for the mood, good job.
Christine.
points tomorrow WERE

very nicely done, (*_*)

I really like this photo. Nicely composed. Thanks for sharing!

Jessica
