    Thanks, I like this photo - I'm looking for ordinary street scenes to jog my memory, and this is good. By the way, if you revisit this place, how about documenting all those people you mention - snake charmers, tooth-pullers, dancing-boys? make a documentary for us, please.

    Great subject. Perhaps you were shy to ask them to pose for a portrait? - but it would have been acceptab le I think, and you could have gotten closer (and thus shown more detail of the teeth, and maybe controlled the overexposure).

    Keep the pictures coming, no matter how hard and explicit they are. People need to see them. After all photography is not only about over saturated landscape or the like.

    Beaubourg is one of my favorite hunting ground. I've a subscription and I go there 4 or 5 times a month.

    Interesting composition, however, I find it still too centered and the little white chapel is a bit overexposed. Closing th aperture a bit more would have fixed this problem.

    Ce qui est vraiment dommage pour cette image c'est le post-traitement qui y est fait; couleurs beaucoup trop saturée. Dominante de cyan trop prononcé dans les ton moyens et le magenta trés visible dans les feuillage dans le ciel à droite. On sent que vous avez poussez "les manettes" à fond pour faire de cette scéne une carte postale "flashy". Encore une fois, c'est dommage, mais cela ne marche vraiment pas pour moi.

    Autre chose, la quantité de lumiére disponnible n'affecte pas le choix d'une focale. Par contre elle affectera le choix du couple vitesse d'obturateur et ouverture de diaphragme pour obtenir une exposition correcte.

    Nice photo, very geometric and 'cool'. Personally I'd like to see someone in the photo to break the impersonality - the 'third element'. But it's good for sure. Any exhibition yet?

    Hello Piotr,

    So you've finally made it to the Fitz Roy. Remember what you've said on one of my picture of the same place 4 years ago?
    I'm glad for you that you've experienced the beauty of this area.

    Romain.

    Just for you to know, this "pink" event on the champs Elysées wasn't due to the french legislative election but to fans celebrating their rugby team "Le Stade Français" after they won the french derby the day before. The team was standing on a double deck and roofless bus going down and up the avenue and showing to the fans the "Bouclier de Brenus" which is the trophy they won.

    Aucune des quatres reponses. C'est en fait un sculpture faite en tubes en fibre de verre coloré de l'artiste Raymond Moretti (plus connu pour ses peintures). Si elle orne une tour d'aération, elle n'en reste pas moins une scultpture et certainement pas un détail architectural.

    Your explanation is good, the blue of the ice come from the oxygene trap in it. With the pressure, the air imprisoned in the ice get compressed until it can not get compressed anymore. That's what gives the blue colour to the ice. The shade of blue that can be perceived really depend of the light that hit the ice.

    In the area of El Calafate, lake Moreno does not exist. In fact, the Perito Moreno glacier front has its feet in the "Brazo Rico" in its south side and in its north side in "Canal de los Témpanos" which is part of "Lago Argentino".

    It would haven been a classic postcard of Basel if the colours and contrast would have not been so flat and picture better exposed. If the sky seems to be well exposed the rest of the picture seems a bit underexposed and therefore too dark. In digital photography it's a good habit to the metering on the brighter area of contrasted scene but then exposure should be either compensated by opening the aperture a bit more or by reworking the levels in the postprocessin to bring back some contrast and lgiht in the darker area of the picture.

    This is a statue of the main character Garou-garou from Marcel Aymée's short story "Le passe muraille". This sculpture was done by famous french actor Jean Marais who became a sculptor at the end of his life.
    This artwork can be found on rue Lepic in Montmartre.

    C'est drole, je bossais sur le PP des photos que j'ai faites de lui hier soir. J'ai le même problème que toi sur la saturation. Il a fallu que je la réduise aussi. De plus sur toutes mes photo, il a l'air de faire la gueule. En fin compte, cela doit être son maquillage qui doit faire ça.
    Belle prise en tout cas.

    Very nice capture. And it does remind me of the Abbey Road picture with the Beatle. So I did a workshop for the fun (it took me few hours) until I realise you didn't allow workshop. So here it is you can check it here.
    If you allow WS, I'll be able to post it as a WS of your photo.
