Baby Bel

Baby Bel by wildfowler

Judging from the re-styled front grille, this looks like a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 4-door Sedan


Money-spinner by SlowSong

Well, your shot contributed to my education as I did not know anything about Magnum (I must live on another planet!). Hence, I began digging up the story with in mind the milk-crisis we are experiencing at the moment in France (and also something that began years earlier: the African milk-powder scandal). I am now able to weigh how multinational industries (British/Dutch Unilever in this case) are making customers happy (and investors even more). But, beyond the turn towards desire for immediate sweet-toot gratification, there are several layers to this story: economics (milk producers are being crushed, to be sure), and also increasing health-risks (judging from the growing numbers of overweight people around the world--while others die from hunger, explain this!). Can you tell me if there is a Magnum store in Greece?

Peacock Feather

Peacock Feather by PrunellaCara

To me, version 1 is the best shot because your feather acquires an abstract form displaying a dynamic wide range of colours. Nature at its best, intelligently captured. Brave. Paul


Rebecca by diphoto

Rebecca's charms are indeed photogenic! Well done, Paul

Version 2 works well for me. The V perspective is ideal as we move from the man's seeming indifference to the dog's interest elsewhere, and the woman's attempt to communicate. The one thing I notice is the woman's right hand that seems to float against the dark background, but who cares, the energy of this encounter is captivating. Bravo! Paul


Amy-Leigh by K4RL

What an imperial face! The look in her eyes is very moving! If I may, I'd like to suggest a slight crop just above the subject's thumb to eliminate any distracting features in order to concentrate on your subject's facial geometry. Just the same, what a portrait! Paul

Peugot  or  Fiat?

Peugot or Fiat? by tonyguitar

Indeed, a 1991 limited production car. Apparently, the Figaro's retractable top became one of the car's unique trademarks. Only four colours were available and each symbolised a season of the year. Typical Japanese elegance.

In focus 2 by Split

Great dynamic image! This strange shot accentuates the separation photographer/subject, the veil of course, but also the vertical post, as well as the impression the subject stands on the other side of a store windows (the hands) and desperately wants to communicate with the photographer. Paul

Grand Central

Grand Central by PentaxMac

Fantastic shot! It captures the essence of the multiple layers resulting from a city's evolution in time. Here, the evident postmodernism did not escape the photographer's eye. Bravo.

Happy Day

Happy Day by LynneJoyce

Bravo! Your photographs remind me very much of Nick Waplington's photographic eye whenever he shot weddings and interior scenes. I am certainly moved by your own comments, being invisible is certainly a major asset, but I also think you have a perfect eye to add emotion to your images. Regards, Paul


Portrait by Bogwoppett

The crop below the model's elbows is necessary to concentrate on the subject's facial expression. This is, after all, what makes the portrait and you have indeed captured its very essence in that nudity and expression appear as inseparable. The result is a forceful presentation of individuality and overall mood. Nicely done.

On parade at ease

Liking one's shot is a first indication of a successful image. Here, nothing spectacular, and yet it reveals in an infinite variety of ways because hands do speak. With this image, excellently taken, one's imagination is invited to soar. Lovely, well done! Paul

Pink & Yellow

Pink & Yellow by lifesnapper

Beyond the subject, obviously well caught, and rather nice, it is obvious that a candid shot can also result in a photography lesson. Here, we have an interesting V frame leading the eye to the right. The main subject is highlighted, whereas the one at the forefront creates the shots dynamic tension (contrasting with the subject on the left). Light and shadow are well balanced, and the white edge reinforces the candid nature of your shot. Very nice work.

Dimension Shifts

Dimension Shifts by RLF

Not only an excellent manip., but a great eye for geometric lines. Congrats.

Lead us not into temptation

Lead us not into temptation by tw3

Just about perfect. The rich sensuality of your scene is indeed boosted by the rich background and contrasting, hardly sketched, view of the outside. But what is this too visible object at mid-level? Lovely Smile

Gwen and Harriet

Gwen and Harriet by Origami_Owl

Excellent portrait photography! Your subjects are ideally placed and take the attention, whereas your background acts as a secondary subject that in the end plays a major role to tell a story. What blows me away is the double eye-contact in this rather surprising scene. Great stuff...Smile

Welcome Lysandra. I think you hit the jackpot straight-away, the illusion is complete. With photographs like this (on facebook as well), I think you have a great future in front of you. Do try contacting in Paris Le Monde's weekly magazine M. They often feature photographers like you! Good luck,
