[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
my humble contribution to the theme induced by mark (login : moketni) on writing and its musical options... hope you'll all like it;-) this book called being a photographer is by Yann Arthus Bertrand, a well known and acclaimed French photographer, especially for his photos of the world taken from high up in the sky. He also did some sport shots at one point in time in his life and has started an extensive series of photos taken during the French agricultural fair in Paris of animals and thier breeders. A must for those who have not seen them!:-) He is also the first photographer ever to have sold over a million copies of a photography book (le monde vue du ciel, or " the world from above in the sky"?). hope you'll like my modest experiment using my brand new D70 and its nikkon AF-D 50mm f1.8...

Hi Eric, I like this image, the way you have focused the camera on the top part of the book, indicating it's importance, the composition is quite interesting as well, the black books leaning on white one, as well as the empty space between the frame and the last book all adds some drama to the image.
Good presentation and great note, for an experiment I think it came out quite well. Like the framing.
Well done!

Not only Mark likes it... Porteplume does too! - And if I haven't any smileys to give (because I choose that way in my profile) be sure your picture + infos + discussion made me smile! :o)))

Nice idea, well composed image, well used DOF, I like the soft "almost B&W" tones.
And Y.A-B may appreciate as well, who knows?

Bel effet graphique; je m'attendais à une dynamique créée par un livre orienté dans un autre sens par exemple puis je m'aperçois que c'est une perspective subtile qui se créée grâce à la profondeur de champs. En tout cas, cet objectif est étonnant.

The space to the right (edit: I meant left, silly me!)with some blurred vertical lines balances the books (and records?) nicely in the composition creating a nice and airy photo that shows some of the elegance of books and paper.

Eric, this is a beautiful picture..subtle and clean..I liked that you placed no-name books next to your favoured one...(or they are all about currencies of the world :))..I am only not sure about that white-brown thin one in between the blacks..I know it makes the picture natural but could be more graphic without..or in a real blend..

Tes photos de TL changent de tes portraits TE. Un autre regard ... plus intimiste avec celle-ci que j'aime beaucoup.
Et puis il y a tes photos de la Pride.
J'y retourne faire un tour, pas encore eu le temps d'ajouter les miennes.
