Excellent work... judging by the number of comments in sepia works best.
Great angle, very introspective.
I wonder if the library people knew that you were clicking away though...

I've been looking through your gallery, amazing work and wish I had the proper time to comment on all telling how great your work is, but this one catches me - and obviously hundreds of others. Nice Job.

Another beautiful picture, Peta, I'd missed this one. I love your work with textures. The latest issue of PhotoLife has an article on texturing (overlaying textures).

We have changed plans (again!) about our move to BC. My husband is flying to our new place on January 1, he has to start working in January. I am staying behind in Ottawa with the children, so that our high schooler can finish the semester. We are then also flying out to BC at the end of January. This is all contingent on our selling the van, otherwise I'll have to drive it to BC with the kids at the end of January. Thanks for remembering! I am relly looking forward to the BC landscapes this coming year.

Take care,

Ursula

I really like the rich, jeweled golds and bronzes in this composition. It encapsulates the symbolic historical implications contained in knowledge- or study. The light coming from above as a metaphor for 'illumination' is so subdued, yet very powerful. Very impressive-be proud of this one.

It never ceases to amaze me how simple lighting set-ups, as here, result in such interesting images.You know, Peta, that I have great respect for your talent so I hope you will not mind if I say here that I am a little thrown by one thing here - the placement of the lamp and the strange down-pointing bar don't look right, in my opinion, its proximity to the young man make it look like some kind of exotic headgear. For me this detracts from an otherwise great image. Best wishes. David.

Another excellent portrait, Peta! Beautiful use of lighting, to give an overall dramatic look ... and wonderful attention to detail as well, such as watch and jewelry, highlights on the rims of the glasses, and the light coming through the corner of the page being turned. Peta, you could put together a book with the amazing portraits you've taken!

Best regards,
SteveR

Thank you all for your wonderful comments on this portrait of Kevin. He was a great model to work with, and I will credit him with the look and idea behind this image and the other I submitted earlier.

Max, I agree, reading is magic and has always been a love of mine which I've happily instilled in my own kids.

I do agree with Massimo Di Maggio, there is magie in this pic, because there is magie in books.

Perfect work with just a lamp's light, great, great, great.

Massimo Di Maggio Massimo Di Maggio   {K:-53658} 12/2/2003
As teacher, I am very pleased with this title and with this photography. Just kidding, but I must say that you can give back very well the atmosphere of concentration, but also of magic, that there is during the reading of a book, also of a school book, because all that one does not know is a mystery. Bye Max

Great colors and textures. It is fun to see how you treat this subject in such different ways. My only nit (wouldn't be critique if it there wasn't one, now would it?): the texture bleeding into the lamp and book. The light in the original image must already be very good. I like the details of his bracelet and watch, and how they work with the general feel of the image.

Thank you all so much!

Marilia...you are so sweet, hugs to you too! I think people will think I'm trying to keep secrets by saying I'm not sure how I got the tones etc. I just go into photoshop and use it like a paintbox. I THINK it came to be with the textures and then using the layer filters in different opacities. I do try...mutiply, overlay or colour burn often. Though colour burn often is too intense so I'd lower the opacity quite a bit. No help am I? ;)

Hi Rembrandt, love to see your work in here.
Peta, this deserves long comments, maybe a poem. I don't know. The way you are working with light is quite extraordinary, my friend.
How did you get to those tones? I have no idea.
Excellent in every way.
Hugs and lots of love,
Marília
