hi your pf is great, perhaps that is understated. I cant help but think it would help loads of people to move forwards, including me if you explained with each image how in rough terms you arrive at the finished product, these epics are obviously more than point and shoot . often we can assume how, but its the little tips that would help us all.
perhaps in the next series you could give a tip each picture, thus captivating your viewers totally.

Hi Ya Jouko.....
I have to be Really Really honest.....What drew me in to your portfolio.......Is the hooded man.....Behind the camera, he's like a magnet to true Beauty with the eye of an eagle, an icon who towers above all the rest, a true inspiration and full of compassion, the master of all golden light, and lightbulbs.....He knows when to click and he knows when to shutter.....But he only does that on a chilly Finnish Day.....Smile

Wait.....Is that Mr. Finland??? Jouko~The Jolli???
For Real???
OMG, I just realized that.....Can I get your autograph???


Hope you're having a wonderful weekend,

Till then, I will keep your pictures in mind when I am taking mine. Perhaps this is the way to improve.
