mon cher ami..
le "double bonus" n'est rien par rapport à de superbes photos que tu as crèe.
la chance de les voir est un grand prix. le sentiment qui se pose est importante et la lumière qui l'accompagne considérable.
un chef-d'oeuvre (un capolavoro)..
ciao

Hello Claude, I am so sad to read your comments about 'uf' but bless you for finding the courage to express what many of us have probably thought, recently. The site has become a dumping ground for endless, endless, endless ordinary shots of nothing in particular with accompanying mindless titles and mindless comments and no effort applied to telling a story about the picture......I have to agree, the 'soul' is missing, but it will rise again......don't go! kind regards, david henderson.

Outstanding! A beautifully realized image...superb lighting (reminiscent of Vermeer!)....yes, like a painting....wonderfully done Claude! And, as is not always the case, the title adds to this fine work. Photographers like you ARE the soul of the site -and of the art- do stay.

Je peux comprendre que le temps passe vite... j'ai moi-même de la difficulté à me trouver du temps pour tout faire. je trouve triste que tu ais des problèmes de santé Claude. J'espère que tout se stabilisera... et même si possible que cela s'améliore. Je penserai à toi et je t'enverrai tout le positivisme possible. Prends bien soin de toi. Dis-toi une chose, tous les commentaires aussi touchant soient-ils sont bien mérités, tu fais un travail remarquable.

Hope to see more ofg your work in the future,

Hello Claude,

I would just like to say that this beautiful image has been overshadowed by the news of your leaving.

I hope you will reconsider. I understand to a degree your reasons for wanting to go. I also have a friend's box three quarters full of people who no longer participate here. I sincerely miss the communication that I had with a lot of those people. But, nothing remains the same.

Remember, if you leave, you will take another piece of the Usefilm "soul" away.

I sincerely hope you reconsider, if only just to post a few of your wonderful images every now and then.

Andre

Good Sir Claude.

First, I really enjoy this shot. It is captivating and the shadows really lend a mood to the picture. Her expression are both inviting and tranquil. I would not change anything.

As for UF. Your proposed leaving prompted me to log in for the first time in many months. Unfortunately it was to bid you well and thank you for your work giving me inspiration. I long ago quit posting my works here primarily because critical examination and critiquing were non existant. Worse, I had a moderator berate me over my chose of words in the Photography Help forum. Worse it was not about what I was saying, but rather my choice of what I capitalized and didnt. It wasn't even about anyone. I was asking for help in how to photograph something. So I requested Al immediately remove me as a Donor. Al does a nice job with the site but some of the moderators and donors definately have, how shall I put it, different and intolerant views of others.

I agree, when I go through my friends list, only a few are still posting images and critiquing shots. Most have not been here in years. Where is Per Johansen? Eldor Gemst? Hannu Eskelinen? Stephane Bourson? Many could have learned more from them and been inspired. It is truly sad when exceptional photographers leave. I wish you well and if nothing else, consider the time spent here a success, as you have inspired at least one other person.

Salut Jacques...pas d'inquiétude....j'ai écrit qu'il s'agissait probablement de mon dernier post....je ne quitte pas le site pour autant et je continuerai d'y jeter un oeil de temps en temps...le faitest que mon boulot de photographe me prend énormément de temps étant seul à gérer la barque à tous les échelons...ma santé en a pris un coup ces quelques derniers moi, se manifestant par des problèmes de surdité....ils ont tendance à s'aggraver dans les situations de stress (mes yeux vont bien ...heureusement :-)) )...je reçois souvent des commentaires très touchant sur mes photos..je culpabilise de ne pas avoir le temps d'y répondre....merci à toi...merci aussi pour ton adresse email..

Sad to hear that you may not post again, hope to see your website published here so I can go and find inspiration and example on your work, one of the finest I've ever seen.

Always the best!

hi Mr Tenot.pardon me for these few lines because they came from the heart.I am new to UF and am not a professional but I am so serious to take profession closely related to photography. this day I have seen your post and its my first time to look at your work,when I have read the comments on your last post as you said I go quickly and seen your past posts and immediately told myself what a waist of time I am doing photography and what a loss this site will face.for me it is as if you taking a soul from the flesh.I would like to ask one question to any one and to you specifically ,did a sea contaminated by one or hundred kilos of dirt? did a man get sick by eating say 1000 bacteria? ask any doctor and he would say it should be 100000 in the blood to get sick.
and let me say if you leave any place because there is something bad ,you will never find a place to go anywhere anytime.best regards,and good luck whatever you decides,with my best wishes and apology.
yours Saad Salem.

tu n'es pas sérieux Claude... j'espère du moins, c'est tellement un plaisir à chaque fois que je découvre une de tes nouvelles oeuvres. C'est drôle parce que je me disais justement cette semaine que cela faisait longtemps qu'on ne t'avais pas vu parmi nous... et tu nous fais le plaisir de vous faire découvrir une autre photo dont toi seul à le secret, dans ton monde et ton atmosphère si particuliers, la composition, l'éclairage, la simplicité... tout est parfait, et les awards qui t'ont été donnés sont pleinement mérité, j'ose croire qu'ils n'ont pas été décernés seulement pour te tenter de rester parmi nous. Je comprends ta décision en ayant lu les commentaires et je la respecte. Ce sera toujours un plaisir si jamais tu changes d'idée de te revoir parmi nous. Je te laisse mon adresse de messagerie... si jamais tu viens à Montréal ou que tu veux échanger, cela me fera toujours un immense honneur Claude.

À la prochaine mon ami.

To Pablo, Rob, Visar,
I don't know what to think......something i'm sure is the fact that this site helped me to decide one day to spend my "photographic" time as a professionnel....without posting here since 2004, i'm not sure i should one day taken the decision to move on to the professional side....so...when i write these words, i'm completely honest...
I had & i have great friends...someone are gone...& they were really state of the art photographers....at the beginning of the POD discussion in 2005, great photographers were spending time on the donor forum..were are they ??
So...maybe...

already two awards :)
great, and so well deserved.

without any intention of mutilating your photograph Claude, which no doubt is a fantastic work by all its means, UF decides to tempt you with these two awards!? is that what a photographer like you needs!??

anyway, i think i do absolutely agree that UF has lost its soul by not bringing any refreshing method here which would greatly effect moods of photographers and promote them and their ideas by new ways.
in addition, there's nothing i can agree more than "it became a "comment & rating hunting" playground"... write me a comment and you'll get one in return, no matter the content of it, no matter if that picture is worth one or one hundred words- it is important that one drops a line, despite the fact that the content may be obselete and small that i practically get utterly disgusted by most of them-- and if it were not for a few people around here, that really mean what they say, without ever contradicting themselves, i would have retired long ago--- thus, as long as there is one of them out there that feels like being honest when deciding in putting his/ her thoughts into writing i will be around too.

certainly UF is losing much too much without you around,

regards,
v.

Claude,

I understand your explanation. Still it feels unnatural, the model and light have the attention to the left, so does the spectator. The shadow should add, not distract ( unless this is the purpose of the artist ;-)

Maybe you're right about the shadow...but in this case, i think it's "framing" the photography in the right
