[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In 1991 when I was in Guinea-Bissau I used a camera from Samsung. I was developing my pictures there, the result was not very good. I did a scan of my photos with photoshop and I managed to have an interesting result. So here is a colonial house in Bolama,

Salut Michel,

Jolie présentation N&B. Je dois dire que c'est très bien réussi. Malgré toute la souplesse et les possibilités qu'offre le traitement d'image digitale, tu devais incontestablement avoir au départ une très belle épreuve papier. Et comme tu dis que tu développait toi même tes photos, alors chapeau pour ton talent argentique ainsi que ton talent digital. TFS.

Nice Pov great use of wide lens
good de saturated photo

Hello Michel

I wonder if this house is still there. I like the b/w result and full range of tones. Looks like a tad bit of sepia was added for effect. Nice image of this place.

Hi Michel,
Nice B&W work for this architectural structure.
Very good contrasts while maintaining the gray scales alive.
Good POV and a lovely sky to compliment.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Michel,
well done, the B&W conversion is well done and suits the subject

Hi Michel, Nice shot from your old photo album. Wild spread clouds in the sky wake up the old house. Wonderful B/W presentation of this old place. Best regards

Bonjour Michel, an excellent PoV showing us as much as possible of this old building.
The scan produced a good shot imo, with nice tones.The sky is a wonderful backdrop.
Tfs, regards Jean.
