Hi Tibi,

A wonderful impressionistic feel ... great use of low light .. beautiful tone .. love the sky in combination with the illuminated foreground .. a lesson there .. thanks for sharing it.

Hi Anil,

Beautiful bit of summer impressionism .. I love the vibrant diffusion .. nice to see on a cold winter night.

Hi Vic,

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!

Stunning layers .. from the timeless mountain to the nature of the foreground .. amazing to compose such a scene in the short time frames of wildlife shots .. I love the way the warm colors link the sky and Earth .. wondrous.

take care,

John

Hi Alain,

Love the blackness .. the diffusion .. and the circular center against the rectangular frame .. at first I thought I wished the room was brighter .. but after looking for it as a while the room almost serves as the border for the punctus of the television.

thoughtful and effective image.

take care,

John

Hi Bratislav,

Really interesting tone applied to the frost .. I would not have thought of that .. (I just shot 2 GB of frost today .. I am having Christmas with my parents in South Dakota) ..
I find myself falling into this desaturated look all the time .. nice to sit with tone .. beautiful.

take care and a happy holiday season to you and your family,

John

HI Alina,

I really like the use of focus and aperture in this .. the way the candles are sinking into diffusion is wonderful .. I find some of the brighter blocks of reflection on the glass a bit distracting .. but the scene maybe too dark without them. Love the way you have composed the objects and palette into the frame.

take care,

John

Hi Yvonne,

stunning .. beautiful .. communicative .. joyful expressions .. I really feel as if they are chatting with me .. nice control (or editing) of those difficult eyes .. nice dimension .. tremendous moment well captured ..

take care,

John

Hi Stephen,

What breathtaking tone .. even from the thumbnail it just grabs me .. I love the way the light and dark play across these infinite feeling textures .. this may be really picky ... but I find the near .. is it a pole? .. a bit distracting .. I love the rest of the foreground. Wonderful!

take care,

John
