[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
C' è un modo di dire in Italia che recita:-Chi non ha cervello abbia gambe-.Nel mio caso sarebbe più appropriato dire, chi non ha una buona fotocamera abbia almeno inventiva.Per molto tempo ho ammirato ottime foto floreali, macro soprattutto, colla consapevolezza di non poter, causa forza maggiore, permettermi di eseguirle a mia volta.Inoltre, non potendo tecnicamente farle, non me la sentivo nemmeno di giudicarle.Tranne in casi rari ed eccezionali.Ma i campi di papaveri sono accessibili a tutti, coi loro colori accesi e vivi.Chi non ne ha mai fotografati?O dipinti?Questa è una mia libera interpretazione.Riprendendo alcune opere di Claude Monet, uno dei fondatori dell'Impressionismo, ho tratto la mia ispirazione.Un'opera su tutte "Campo di papaveri a Vétheuil" ( Les cocquelicots près de Vétheuil) del 1880, conservato alla Collezione Buhrle di Zurigo, in Svizzera.Il luogo ritratto nella foto è la riserva naturale orientata della Parma Morta, vicino alla città emiliana omonima, zona ricca di avifauna stanziale e di passaggio.Allego un WS fatto da un POV più vicino che dà una composizione meno serrata dei fiori.I pochi colori ben in contrasto tra di essi ed il loro sembrare gocce di vernice versate in maniera caotica su una tela, mi hanno dato un buon colpo d'occhio.Spero piaccia così come è piaciuta a me....

PP eseguito, tono automatico, e, tramite la funzione "correzione del colore selettiva", aumento del 20 % del verde.Ovviamente crop e resize.

In Italy there is a common saying stating:- Who doesn't have any brain must to have legs, roughly translated-.In my case it would be more appropriate to say, those having not a good camera must have at least creativity.For a long time i have admired excellent flower photos, especially macros, with the consciousness that i can't, cause force majeure, make them in my turn.Moreover i not even felt like judging them.Except in rare and exceptional cases.But poppies fields are accessible to everybody, with their bright and lively colours.Who has never photographed one?Or painted?This is my loose interpretation.Taking cue from some works of Claude Monet, one of the Impressionism's founders, i drawn my inspiration.One work principally "Poppies near Vétheuil" (Les cocquelicots près de Vétheuil) painted in 1880, kept at the Buhrle Collection in Zurich, Switzerland.The place portrayed in my photo is the nature reserve of the Parma Morta -near Parma,Emilia Romagna- an area rich in different bird species, sedentary or passing.I enclose a WS made by a closer POV giving a less tight flowers composition.The few colours well in contrast between them and their appear like drops of paint spilled in a chaotic way on a canvas gave to me a good glance.I hope you like in the same way i liked it....

Effected PP, automatic tone, and, through the "selective colour correction", 20% saturation of green.Of course, crop and resize.

Certainly a very striking flowerscape and true to Monet in its initial look. Typically in a photo we'd see a single flower represent the field with the rest out of focus, so your conscious effort to represent another style makes this eye-catching.

Ciao Alessio



A beautiful panoramic, the color palette is formidable,
it's like I was seeing, a frame on a wall.
Sharpness and clarity are superb.
Excellent composition, good presentation too. TFS.

Best regards,

Hi Alessio,

You are very right as it looks similar to Monet's painting!
Great mood you have acquired in the work.
The colors are simply wonderful and green, gold and erupting red colors make this work so pleasing to the eyes.
Very well done!

Thanks and regards,
Paras

Hi Alessio,

This is beautiful, I love the effect you have achieved here inspired by Monet. It is interesting to see the workshop too, to compare. Like the pano crop too.

Regards

Joy

Hi Alessio..nice colors...I agree the shot looks like a Monet!

Hello Alessio,I am unsure just how you created this 'look', so appropriately titled,but it has turned out really well, I like it a lot.
The 'letter-box' presentation suits the picture.
Good PP work.Thanks for the workshop picture for the comparison.
Regards Jean.

Ciao Alessio,
I also like your note - both usefull and entertaining.
Claude Monet would be proud of the result if he'd painted your photograph.

Hi Alessio

Ciao Alessio, un buon fotografo riesce a fare belle foto anche con mezzi non eccezionali, e tu lo sei, il paragone con Monet non è azzardato che sembra proprio un suo dipinto, bello anche il WS, ma mi piace di più quella che hai postato, bravo, buon week end, ciao Silvio
