I've not been very inspired in 2008, I'm not really satisfied with any of my shots to show them up here...
Even if I enjoy a lot shooting Smile.

Jes.

Now, here's something that really is difficult for me, because I am a very bad judge of myself and because I click my shutters emotionally, not rationally, so it's very hard for me to make a rational choice of things that have only been moved by emotion.
In any case here's three, I am already regretting the choice, but what the heck:

Thanks. I realize only now, that I have chosen three photos all taken in the same day.

It's probably the eeriest photo that I ever took.

Orio, you're a real artist

Why did you pick third one ?

Because it's a photo of contrasts: the arrow points to the left and the man is leaving to the right; there is a sunwatch on the wall, and the day is completely foggy; there are the balloons in the background for the feast, but the place is deserted.

An ensemble of things that look like if they were prepared, as a studio shot or film shot, but it's just a snapshot. An incredible series of compositional coincidences.

It is actually my preferred one. I must confess I am quite proud of having had the eye to see all this on the fly and having been fast enough to catch it.
On the other side, I must confess that I have been incredibly lucky on this shot, and this is not my merit. Rolling Eyes

Thanks. Smile But I don't consider myself as such. My technical command and knowledge of photographic techniques is very basic. The only merit I think I have is that I don't follow any style or imitate any master: I just shoot what I like following my instinct.

Really? Sad
When I took the shot, I was not conscious of all these things going on (it was too fast), but my subconscious got them, and like I said, I trust my instinct, so I followed it.
Only later I realized all the elements.
I was hoping that even if not all the elements are recognized, at least the viewer could perceive them instinctively, just like I did... but I am aware that this type of photos is easily lost Sad

My impression this photo nothing special, after explanation I understood.I never analise any photo perhaps this is the problem.

No, it's not a problem I think Smile
I think that people's minds react differently in front of photos, and someone is more sensitive to some things, and other ones to other things.

I am against over-analyzing photos. I did this time, because you asked me, but if you notice, I rarely describe my photos and I never put titles on them, because I think it kills the freedom of the viewer.
Everyone should be free to look at a photo without the instructions Laughing Wink And nothing limits the freedom (and the potential) of a photo, like a title put on it.
Once you put a title on a photo, you cut off a whole range of possibilities for the viewer. This hurts (I think) the photo and the viewer.

A similar thing happens with the descriptions: they sterylize the photos. I prefer my photos not to be appreciated because not in tune with them, than being read sterylized.

I'd like that my friends can see my photos emotionally, not rationally.
Then one person likes it, good, another one doesn't, no problem. Smile

Yes, I think you have right , diversity is important. We have all different expectations from photos. Mine is very simple if I like to hang a photo on my wall I think that is good for me.
