Hello Stefan good dof and nicely composed sharp photo good light well framed with the flowers best rgds Necip

Good metering, colour and light, good sharpness where it counts in this shot Stefan. Overall, good work with the added blur - although where you've blurred his arm doesn't work so well, maybe.
Nice work though
:) PL

What a cool looking dude ! :-)
Bet he dosent worry about nothing!

Great capture, good colours..

well done.


I like this portrait of the "Happy Man",
That's not one of those "Happy Cigarettes" is it? :)
I think the DOF is a bit shallow (the arm and the watch are a wee bit OOF) but I realize you wanted to isolate him from the BG. overall, I think you've done a nice job with the composition and the use of natural light. You metered it well. I think the detail is nice, I wish there had been a little more. The detail is good, particularly in the straw hat area.
Job well done,

Hi Stefan..nice portrait. Your technique is very good and you captured the nature of this man.


Hello Stefan,

This is beautiful portrait.
Sharp, good light, and nice skin tones. TFS


Hi Stev, fun portrait of a strange man, I like it, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Stefan

Similar landscape and known by me in the city where I live.
Beach cities, the people are always like this, full of life, tanned bodies and well the will with the life.
I see this gentleman's example, him yes he knows as taking advantage his life.
Beautiful visual and compo!


Hahahaha.. what the French call a '' bon vivan ''
Good quality here Stefan. Respectfull greetings from The Hague
Holland :-)
