A simplistic image of a church to represent everything that's wrong with simplistic believe-systems in general (and religious believes in particular). A bleak outlook of life between opposing forces represented as complementary colors, with the light from above illuminating the red tiles of the roof, and the green grass in the shade below.

Now notice the colors of the doors...

That's a great portrait, Oscar! Maybe a little fill light on the eyes?

Pffff, Da Beat took a cat picture. Can you imagine?

A cat in full domestic camouflage, which did make him wonder about evolution. Do we really breed those color varieties because we like them? Because they fit our domestic environment? We happen to like our homes nice and tidy in the Netherlands. With neat, unremarkable colorschemes, everything singularly flat, teetering on the edge of dull.

And that's okay. It keeps a bunch of people cramped together on too little space from continuously annoying each other. But I always secretly wish for that true grand dame wearing a bright red dress, stepping out of her equally bright red Italian convertible, and with an actual panther following in her footsteps. For her it's like walking the dog. In full control of the predator.

In the Netherlands we control our predators differently. They build and paint homes and houses in unremarkably flat singular colorschemes, never any excesses, and by consequence, our cats have become equally dull. Metaphorically enough?

Are you certain there isn't a little bit of Milano inside you?

A Storm is Coming:

Be patient with me Slobodan. I know you are very careful with your shots so - do you think it's important that the tree leaves touch the patterned wall or is that just serendipity?

Not sure. Not something I paid attention to during the shoot. It is an iPhone shot, so not easy to see such details. Given the nature of modern social media posting, it also, more often than not, goes straight from the phone to social media. Had I brought it to the desktop, I might have noticed it. In which case it would’ve been easy to clone it out. Then again, not sure it matters that much. Does it bother you? I mean, there are certain things only photographers would notice and be bothered with. I am not trying to be confrontational, these are genuine questions.

I'm quite interested in other photographers approach to details like this. Some seem to obsess over these details while others really can't see the point. In this case I don't think it's worth bothering about although it does add a bridge between two major elements. Of course a lot of this is subliminal you don't really see it but it's there.

As you say very easily fixed in post processing if you don't want them to touch.

So, I appreciate your reply and it's not at all confrontational.

If you crop #2 to include just a thin strip of foreground hills, it becomes pretty impressive.

You're probably relatively new to this section of the forum; Without Prejudice was specially designed as a unique space where critique is not welcomed. In other words, people can post images without other people telling them how they might "do it better".

You may, of course, say you like or dislike something or, simply, ignore it, but second-guessing is not wanted.

Just the way this is in this special slot.

Thanks -

Rob C
