    Hi Marios,
    I am part of the moderation team and your incredibly long note accompanying this photo is problematic. Indeed, it fully comes (uncredited) from Wikipedia... and that's it!

    I'm sure you have many things to tell about what you saw and felt there. So I suggest you to write a text more consistent with the objectives of TE in the coming days, otherwise your picture will be deleted.

    Bonjour Cédric,
    Je fais partie de l'équipe de modération de TrekEarth et, même si tu as déjà utilisé cette note pour une de tes photos précédentes, elle n'en reste pas moins problématique.
    L'"emprunt" n'a pas été détecté à l'époque mais le texte n'en a pas moins été pompé ailleurs (Wikipedia, notamment)... et rien d'autre !
    A ce sujet, les conditions d'utilisation du site sont claires : Il n'est pas autorisé de "Copier et Coller" de grands morceaux de texte venant d'autres sites internet ou copiés sur les ouvrages d'autrui.
    Tu as très probablement quantité de choses à raconter sur La Rochelle sous le soleil. Je te suggère donc d'écrire à la place un texte plus conforme aux objectifs et pratiques de TrekEarth, faute de quoi, d'ici quelques jours, cette photo sera supprimée...
    Merci par avance,

    Wishing upon a star...
    Even if I'm definitely not made of wood, your photo invites me to run to the nearest bookstore and read Pinocchio for the first time. Or should I watch once more every episode from the original Star Trek series? ;-)
    This is really a stupendous vista, Konstantinos! The sky should be like that over Paris, from time to time...
    By the way, I'm not very fond of your signature like that, riveting my eyes, but this is a very minor inconvenience.
    Welcome on TE... and more to come, I hope!

    Hi Boris,
    This is one among many incarnations of fallen dreams, I guess.
    Your picture reveals some kind of archeological interest, retelling (still vivid or nearly forgotten?) memories from a recent past for an uncertain present...
    To enhance its impact, I think minor adjustments could be appropriate. So I made a workshop. I hope you'll like it.

    Hi,
    it's quite difficult for me to judge a photo like this one, while not knowing the place.
    Neverthless, I feel it could have been more interesting had you chosen a wider point of view. Either by taking advantage of the trunk and branches of the tree to fully structure the left and top sides of your picture or, with a landscape format, by framing a larger part of the building on the right and showing how the sculpture integrates itself - or not - with its surroundings...
    I always keep in mind the motto of a famous Finnish architect, Eliel Saarinen: Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan. It often works wonderfully well when photographing transplanted art pieces here and there.
    Give it a try, one time or another... ;-)
    Dominique

    PS
    I would also have prefered to read your own feelings and appreciations about the sculptor and his work, instead of a basic introduction lifted from Wikipedia. Beter luck next time, probably...

    Bonjour Eric,
    au-delà de toute considération sur le désensablement du Mont et le libre retour des marées, j'aime bien la façon qu'a cette mince frange de mer, que l'on distingue à peine, de structurer ta photo, entre nuages et herbes mêlées de bruyères, agitées par le vent.
    Toutefois, je m'interroge sur la masse blanche qui envahit une partie du ciel et occulte la subtilité des nuances de couleurs... d'autant que cette surexposition encombrante n'apparaît pas sur la version que tu as mise en ligne sur ton site.
    Même si je reste plutôt dubitatif face aux excès du HDR, où l'accumulation des reliefs apportés aux plus infimes détails parasite la vision claire d'une photo, j'ai l'impression qu'ici tout est trop lissé et affadi.
    Choix de traitement, problème de compression ?
    Voilà, juste en passant...

    Hi Marie-Paule,
    I must confess that I don't know much about birds, except probably when it comes to braised pigeon with peas, small carrots and cider (the memory of it, at least, for I fear I haven't cooked or even tasted this particular dish for more than 25 years)...
    Nevertheless, I do remember distinctly the last time I really paid attention to another gull, a black-headed specimen in fact, but without any sailing boat or flying plane nearby. ;-)
    Back to your seagull, Marie Paule. I liked the way the wing feathers shone in the sunlight, contrasting with the overcast sky. But I also felt your photo could be slightly improved, so I made a workshop... something else I hadn't done for quite some time now.
    I hope you'll like it.
    Take care,
    Dominique

    Very nice impression from the festival, Takero. Good detail not only on the artistic print of the uniform, but also the surface texture of the cloth is quite well rendered. The strong tele-lens also gave you a fine DOF to offset the guy in the background. Well seen.

    こんにちは Hisashi. A fine deep perspective along this lineup of jizo statues, well contrasted and vividly colorful. A beautiful introduction to this piece of Japanese culture, well captured.

    And, finally, a humble "thank you" for putting a link to my photo :)

    As a workshop, and as a present for you, I will post a photo that I took two months ago of these jizo statues at the same location. Sorry for the small size, I don't have a bigger one available at the moment.
