ォYou know I知 no goodサ is a title that I took from a great Amy Winehouse song, from her album ォback in blackサ, with which I close (for now) a triptych where I致e tried to illustrate some phrases and verses that, in my opinion, were very strong and had a great narrative impact.

Was my intent with the triptych that ends here to share with all my TL friends a little part of the universe behind my photos; I hope you've enjoyed.

Amigo Jos,

Uma fotografia estupenda, em que destaco a excelente nitidez, a luz (em especial, na m縊 da senhora) e a escolha do P&B, al駑 de uma nota muito apropriada, como sempre.
Parab駭s e um grande abra輟,

Poor Amy Winehouse. She doesn't see if she stopped all the drugs and drinking she would feel better about herself! HAHA! I like her style of music..don't like her eye makeup! HAHA! This is nice Jose, very mysterious photo! We don't know who it is. Nice tones, very nice street photography!

ciao Jose..
i'm curious about the triptych.. and i'll wait for the next
here.. the title makes me thing.. about smoke.. "you know i'm not good".. and as a smoker.. i could say.. "but i love you the same"..
a good mood.. in this capture.. every detail has a sense of intense reflection about life.. and as this cigarette.. about how it slowly passing and consuming us.. infront our eyes.. without anythig we can do.. to stop it!
a sense of decadece in all the tobacco taste.. excellent realise!... thanks
ciao Marco

Boa noite Jose

I can enjoy the mood even if I've quit smoking since september 2007.
Wonderful picture


Very unusual portrait angle - the focus on the hand is sharp and I like the toning of the image..

Nice style.


Ola dear friend Jose.
An unusual capture you shows here. I like it a lot.
You're Very Good, in this kind of pictured.
Complements.! I will open the Click and see how that sounds.
Have a great happy day.
ps; I just listen to her song. I remember it but didn't know who she was.
I've still no idea how you can make a link.
I like to make a link to my 'Picasaweb', where I stored many photoseries.
Mabybe you can help me ?
I will make a link to it in my intro.
Best wishes from Jan

hi Jose

Very interesting mood of this man's pose in B&W. I find the sharpness in the hand holding the cigarette to be well done. Good contrast and nicely done in strong light.

Good shot.

I like this artistic composition, this is so expressive, reflects your thoughts in your note very well. Interesting POV, good job! TFS.

Ciao Jose

Voce esta explorando detalhes
interessantes e n縊 usuais.
Belo tiro, parece uma velha fotografia capturada no momento, e ha uma certa classe desta senhora em
segurar o cigarro em teus dedos!
Uma bonita luz define bem isto!
Um bom humor aqui


Hi Jose,
A strong photo ! Great note with it.
B/w presentation makes the note even stronger, so, good interaction between the photo and the note.
Composition, with the focus on the hand, is very good.
Next to the hand, in the background, is a white thing. Thats a pity because it distracts a bit.
Great job done,

It's very suggestive portrait, Jose! Great POV emphasized mysteriousness unknown woman. I like light and B&W tones on this photo.
Greetings, Ewa

Ciao Jose, original portrait, splendid B&W with fantastic light, very well done, ciao Silvio

Ciao Jos. La mano ha una profondit di campo e nitidezza sbalorditiva. La luce impreziosisce un BW al top.


Bonsoir Jos
Great light on the hand while the face seems to be caught by the music and maybe thoughts at the same time.The eye comes back then to the hand where tobacco and life are burning
Nice moody B&w
best regards

black in black my favorite Album and this song is superbe, very good choice of music and idea and approach.. actually very very strong realization and real, all reflected on the cig bud, *smoke it till the last breath*, the hands, the colors and the mood in general! fine sharp details showing every line on the hands, side lighting worked that really well... very interesting frame..
my compliments Jose for this creativity and my kind regrds

Greast B&W. A manuten軋o do foco nas m縊s com o desfoque na cabe軋 deu toda a atmosfera para este close-up.
Nice portrait.
Tenha um bom final de semana,

Hi Jose,
Nice black & white picture and composition,Great mood and superb light,good shot...
Best regards!

hi Jose',
I seem to know this hand somehow..? =)
you caught a specific moment in time and gave it a meaning, linked to a phrase and a song - in short, a mood.
this hand could have been doing other things, but because we all associate certain actions to "things we shouldn't do", you picked an emblematic one...
well done!
big hug,

Excellent portrait image. Photography means a capture of light and you capture wel.

here too
you captured well light and shadows
perfect details
a great work

A very good one I missed :( The capture of the detail is just perfect and it gives an exccellent description of those details that we normally don't focus on. Really well taken with very good contrasts manipulation.
