hi, volker!
nice lighting
Volker April 12, 2008, 08:44 PM
Hi Thomas! Thanks a lot!
The lighting was very easy. It's just the light that came through the window. ;-)

Mmmm.. oh, yes! Great! I'd like to see that eye again... a touch of melancholy I can see in it here!
(tell me it's not true :))
Volker April 13, 2008, 04:00 PM
Haha... Noooo! I'm not melancholic. I just tried to look serious. ;-)

@Gergana: Ahaa, my Sister is tight than!!

Your typo really made me laugh! I guess you meant that your sister was "right" - but "tight" is how we describe someone who's drunk. And I'm sure your sister was no such thing! :))

Great self-portrait Volker, but I think you could have increased the lighting a bit and still kept the dark, brooding feel.

Haaaaahahahaaa.. OMG! yes, indeed! My keyboard at home has always it's own opinion. :D
Mmmmmmmmmmuuuaaaaacs for ALL!

but it is SO WONDERFUL we made you laugh! :))))

Hahaha... Geri,don't blame it on the keyboard! ;-)

But I didn't know that tight also means drunk. So I've learned a little bit today. :-)

Stevie, that's nearly the same as I thought. I think the hand is to bright and takes to much attention. The face and the eye could be brighter. I'll try to make a better version of the photo.

BTW Thanks for criticizing my pictures! I think I can learn a lot from you. :-)

Volker, if the things I write are even a little bit useful to you, then I'm very happy!! :)

And I've learnt from you that sewer caps can be interesting! As you've probably noticed, I haven't been around on 23 for a couple of weeks, as I was travelling around France. I took a couple of sewer cap photos for you, and I'll post them as soon as I get around to processing the 350+ images I've got waiting for my attention! But one thing made my friend laugh: we were outside the cathedral in Rheims, one of the glories of European Gothic architecture, and everyone is taking shots of the west towers, except me who's pointing his lens at a drain!! :) I've no idea what everybody must have thought...

Volker April 14, 2008, 09:09 PM
I hope you had a great time in France, Stevie! It is very kind from you, that you took the photos FOR ME. :-) I can't wait to see them!
Hahaha... That 'what's this crazy guy photographing there' happens to me all the time. But I think it's good being a little different from the others, sometime! ;-)
