[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is what I see from the desk of my computer room as I'm writing this caption...

Though, I don't have any color viewing issues nor natural fisheye distorsion. This shot has been submitted to experiments from the idea to its final output :

- firstly, conception experiment i've barely uploaded images about me, myself, I. But for some strange reason, I thought the sunflowers standing before the window would make an interesting abstract pattern...

- secondly, equipment experiment : I've used my old 6*6 Pentacon camera that's falling into pieces and giving me film winding nightmares (only two shots in this roll where not overlapping... :(...). But i didn't find that too funny so I used an underwater wide angle at the end its the lens.

- thirdly, processing experiment : I'm in a lith printing mood nowadays, see this pic if you don't believe me. So that was lith processed with a kind of paper I'm not used to, less grain, softer look, but that's OK with the general feeling of the pic.

Great note and image :)

beautifull photo.Love the transparency of the petals.Good note.Congratulations on this one.Love it.

Very unusual but attractive composition. The monotone and special effects suit the mood well. Looks like it should be printed on a very large poster as a wall hanging. Great idea and good work.

This is a very interesting POV. I like the color tones you've chosen. The picture looks so "within my touch".

I like the veiled effect and soft look here :)
The semi-silhouettes is a good touch :D

I like it..a beautiful shot..well done.

Such a simple compo in this shot, yet it works so well. Your tones are as always excellent and fit the whole subject rather well. Nothing to nit pick here, excellent work all around.

It looks like your window is covered with a transparent piece of painted silk...
It's strange but attractive at the same time, quite an experiment indeed! I like the surprising works of TL, even if I'm not sure I always like the results... :o)

I am jeaolus..after some months here and indulging myself into pictures whenever I had time, (and after seeing a picture you shot when you were 13?..that's in TE) I can see you shoot and pp...
well, for the moment I try..some come out mediocre some not even that..
and you shoot with your old and broken cameras..you do lith prints (I try to guess.: connected to lythography ?..will learn that now)..you comment on many things I do not know..I guess I have to thank Adam once more that you are here as I am...:)))
nice view from a desk...

Luko if this is what you see... I would say your boat is sinking :D there is a tremendous tilt in the background i quess you would be needing that underwater fisheye... not that that harms the photo thought, it very blurry so it's just lines, but i just wanted to warn you ;D...

futher...you've created an effect with that lithprinting of yours, that really makes me jealous :| your linked one was so astonishing when i first saw that back then... and this aswell... you've to explain me a few things in the future... next month i have a renewed darkroom in the cellar of my new house... so i'll be very busy again then....

I like the Lith printing technique you used to creative this monochromatic image. Something I haven't seen in a long time. It's nice to see a 'come back'.
Maybe the tilt was intentional for this composition, but the diagonal line from the window is pleasing.
I used to develop my own prints at one time, so can appreciate the work involved. Take a peek here on TreakEarth

Bonjour Luko, belle image et superbe traitement. Félicitations pour ce beau n&b.

Almost as if it was printed on a piece of thin cloth and lit from behind. Very well done.

I like the monochrome colour together with the texture / grain in the image. Slanted vantage point with shallow DOF all works well together for me to create an image resembled with the very early days of photography.

Hi Luko,

beautiful...monochromatic, excellent...well done, full of mood in it...

Take care, Ivana

Você joga com a maravilhosa luz e sombras.
