Great singuanti 2005-05-31 22:03

Hi Wes, another spectacular shot from this must see place. Each time you post a new shot of this falls you manage to outdo the previous one. This shot really lets you take the whole thing at once and admire its beauty. Another incredible work Wes! Oh I have great news. Because of this shot:Blossoms this lady who is the editor of a photo essay book about Wash, DC wants this and several of my other shots. So over the next week my new post will slow because I've got to deal with her deadline. I'm getting paid, I just don't know how much yet.

First, let me thank you for commenting and rating this picture.
You raised a very important, "philosophical" question: is photoghaphy a representation or an interpretation of reality? Better, do its best function consist in stimulating immagination or representing the reality? My answer is: it depends. Depens on photographer's personality, on his mood in that moment, on situation, on the subject. So, perhaps you are right: my note is too much realistic and, giving a clear explanation, I killed poetry in this photo.
But what especially surprised me in that situation was his surprise for that "miracle". This is the reason because I wrote that rude but realistic note. But I'll keep your teaching for the future.

I hope my poor english will be able to explain my thought. Anyway, thanks so much aganin for your interesting criticism.
Regards Paolo

Don't stop writing notes on my account...write what you feel, write about the facts that may or may not kill the poetry in a given picture. I fully understand where you are coming from and your perfect statement about photography "is photoghaphy a representation or an interpretation of reality" is outstanding. Each person sees a photo for what they want to see in it...and this is the beauty of photography, I think.
