No arch, no Pillar or spectacular rock formation but still, a masterpiece.

Ok... i have been holding off for a long time but I have to say it...


A shot you post is nice but if someone  does an overview of your posts, everything looks the same.


Same filtration giving the same color scheme and I wonder if you have ever tried to shoot anything else?

How about putting yourself in some other situation and NOT use those overdone color filters on the sky.

Even when you aren't taking coastal soft water scenes, you manage to still come up with a sameness.


Basically, I feel there is no imagination or attempt at pushing yourself to new and different visions.

Try taking a look in your toolbox and finding the least used lens in there and go out and only shoot with that lens.

Push yourself to see things differently.

Because you posted on here asking for comments, that is mine and worth the paper it isn't written upon, but still worth something.

Dont get me wrong, you have a good eye for these scenes but you really need to get out of your comfort zone.

Some might call that a personal style, of course.

Anyway, that's a lovely photograph, Vieri.

Thank you for your comment framah, of course you are entitled to your opinion but perhaps you might want to check my galleries here: VIERI BOTTAZZINI PORTFOLIO and see if you'll still feel that way after :) Personally, I think that photography is a journey, and we keep evolving and growing during it. As well, I think that this evolution come naturally by keeping studying, working, thinking, experimenting, and cannot be "decided". I am very happy about the point where I am now, but at the same time I keep working every day to improve, change, expand my vision and horizons.

Some might call that a personal style, of course.

Anyway, that's a lovely photograph, Vieri.

Thank you very much Jeremy! As far as framah, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, no worries :) I guess he must not like people like Michael Kenna much!
