Quotes of the Day:
"Available light is any damn light that is available!" -W. Eugene Smith

"Balance of light is the problem, not the amount. Balance between shadows and highlights determines where the emphasis goes in the picture...make sure the major light in a picture falls at right angles to the camera." -Elliott Erwitt

Hi Freddie,

Great POV. Superb details and sharpness. The colours are just excellent.



And what a light it is !! Great capture of this warm light. Deep colors.
Nice pov.
About your note: you can also make a HDR. Than you have shade and highlights in balance.

nice shot... great POV and composition..


Hi Fred,

Agree with you. Light is the key. And you did great presenting it. Warm light and very well composed. Well done.


warm and 'attractive'( like you, tee hee?), let there be light indeed, just enough still to see all the lines, lovely, thanx, M, (*_*)

Hi Fred,

excellent light.
Good composition and colors.

well done.
Interesting note.


Bonjour Freddie.
Une très belle lumière et couleur orangée.
Bonne netteté et cadrage serré agréable.
Bravo !

Hi Freddie,
Beautiful exposure of the lamp, I like the low shooting angle, it shows the intricate pattern of the glass holder nicely.
Good colour too.
Well seen and done,

Good pp work to concentrate on the subject and also to eliminate noise, which I suspect must have been present in the original shot.
Kind of a phot lesson illustration.
