    I like the 'feelings' these photos gave me.
    Made me shiver and feel gloomy just as I think you intended.

    If a piece of work can do that, then the 'creator' has done his/her job.

    Well done.
    The last 2 really did it for me.


     
  2. Silver Efex does end up leaving Halos sometimes, but I like the image a lot nonetheless. I also like number 3 a lot. Like the others, I could personally go with less vignetting, but that's a matter of taste.

    Yey, another Leica shooter!

    It saddens me to see a flag that is that torn up still flying.
    People have no respect for it anymore.

    Overall I do like the feel of the series. I think they look good and you did a good job.

    Wonderful work Alberto! So far, I have seen seven of your photographs, not one of which have I disliked.

    It appears, from the limited selection, that you have already found your vision of the world. Were you trained in a photography school in SF?

    Well, at any rate, I hope that someone from a proper agency sees your work and hires you. Once employed as a serious photographer, you will be able to promote your own portfolio, too.

    Good Luck!

    Some people might say a photograph needs to stand on it's own to be good, which is like saying a computer processor needs to be good for the computer to be good. Which is ludicrous. I think the PP is great, and number 3 is my favorite. One thing, do you have the full version of the last one?

    You are very kind. Too kind ;).

    I am totally untrained (and arguably untrainable) in photography or art. I've only picked up photography again 2-3 months ago. I doubt I could support my family doing photography, but thank you for the compliment. For the next few years, at least, I will be enjoying it as a hobby.

    Ciao,

    Alberto

    Thanks. I share your views about PP - it's a digital version of what most photographers have been doing anyway in the darkroom (e.g. Anselm Adams with his burning and dodging.) Seeing the before/after processing of "Moonrise over Hernandez" - arguably his best known photo - should lay all doubts to rest about the importance of post-processing to bring out the best out of the photos. At least it does it for me.

    Another Adams quote I like is that he thinks of a negative as a musical score and the print as the performance. Both offer opportunity for creativity.

    Thanks again for your comments.

    Alberto

    >One thing, do you have the full version of the last one?

    I am not sure what you mean? The uncompressed file?

    I also feel the mood you are trying to convey.

    As most of the others, #3 does it the best of the 3 shots shown. It is a testament to your ambition that so many do enjoy #3. You have a good eye.
