Somehow I missed this one when I stopped by before. Love the effect in black and white.

Dear Omar , There are infinite argument about using this wonderful software in photographing !!
some recomend using absolutly all the facilities of PS work in enhancing photographs assuming that photography is an art like all other arts that could be used as a way of expressing the inner senses , thoughts & self point of view so , they don't care about reality in finalizing their works .
others see that PS is allowed within limited zones , just for adjusting exposures , tiltings & correcting colors as they care about reality in their captures.
for me I believe in unlimeted usage of PS in normal shots as in landscaps , abstracts , art work , portraits ..etc. but for recording evedents or shooting famous places or historical monuments , PS should be used in a very small scale !
here in your photo I would like to add or create a dramatic sky using the three dimentions effects as a background to this lovely arches.I think it will look great !!
by the way I am just a starter in using this wonderful software :} If you like to see some great PS work , just visit the potfolio of
Bob Aldridge (K:2,342) & see his seescape work !!
& in particular the awarded photo
( A Storm is Brewing )

Thanks Inji! I'm glad you like the image.
I would like to understand what you mean by working with PS on the background. Normally I do minimal work with PS, but I see in your portfolio that you are very good with this tool. What would you suggest?

Nice vista and composition, Omar. Very good framing of this beautiful view. Congrats.


George Black George Black   {K:102005} 4/17/2005
Nice shot, Omar. The decorative elements of the balcony contrasts beautifully with the structural grace of the bridge. In all, a very good statement of styles.

All the best,


Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 4/17/2005
I am touched by your appreciative words, but I too am very much an amateur as well (taking pictures for about a year). I just had a quick look at your portfolio and I see some very nice shots there too. So maybe we can learn from each other!


Aqeel Ahmad   {K:696} 4/17/2005
You have an exquisite portfolio! each and every composition is really commendable. i am too much of a beginner to comment technically. but all of these pictures have complete stories to tell and moods of their own. i would love if you could look at my work and criticize.


Gennaro Guarino   {K:12372} 4/17/2005
very good idea, I like the central simmetry and I think that you have a good exposure on all the image.

bella idea e ottime tonalità.

Pace e Salute, M.
