It's great to take your camera with you while going to the cinema!
Who knows what the weather will provide when the movie is over?!

After the movie a fantastic mist has filled the Charles Aznavour Square where Kino Moskva is located. As you see, I had strong backlight too. A great opportunity that should not me missed.

The building on the left is Hotel Yerevan, one of the most prestigous in Yerevan.

The movie was one of the best ones I've recently seen. It was a Greek film called "Little Dolphines."

About this photo:
As you see it was a long exposure shot of 20 seconds. I choosed it to avoid the ghosts of the passers by. I took the same shot with ISO 1600 and got another interesting photo and of course with some people in the frame, I'll post it as a WS.

So, let me say Hello to Treklensers from Greece!
Keep the faith my brothers and stay in peace.

Hello Garo,

Strange animal, good atmosphere and excellente composition.


Beautiful lighting! That is a great idea to use a 20 second exposure to eliminate the people. I actually like the workshop photo too. Great shot! JP

Hello Garo,
From the thumbnail it looked to me like a real bull in the middle of the city street. But the real thing is even better. Cheers for the shot.

Hello Garo, powerful thumbnail, powerful picture. This one is definately the better one of those 2 shots. You captured the mist very well. Composition is great within the rule of thirds. Well done. Yours, Jan

The problem with work of art photography is that the subject is already artistic, so it's quite difficult to make the photo artistic as well... But you managed !

You have done a good job with this one, your efforts were worth it. The mechanical beast looks surreal against the mist, like an invader from another planet. The absence of a distracting background makes it stand out.

hi garo,
very fantastic shot. great tones and good pov.

Une belle ambiance.

I Like this:)

Like the horse picture. An excellent photo. It is obvious you have a good eye for photography. The lighting, the color, the mood, all are real good. The only thing that I can critic is the composition, not that it's bad but it has been cropped from the actual photo.

For sure, you've got an eye and you work well in postprocessing. Regarding to your original version, you've spent a long time to get this result. But 1 Question ? How many shots did you use to realise this one ? With peoples crossing over and over, you had to wait a bit, hadn't you ?

Good, good, good...

Hi Garo,

This is a beautiful picture and i love the effects you have added in the picture. If the picture is of the same subject as in the Workshop then bravo you have presented this superbly to the viewers.


With best regards,
