Good rgarrigus 2009-03-13 13:03

Hi George,

OK, so Fernanda looks like a person who you just want to smile along with. Everything about her looks so genuine and she's a perfect candidate to be immortalized by your lens. I guess what I don't get, or like really, is what your wide angle did to her head. If you don't mind me trying to put this gut feeling into words I just find that it distracts from the idea of Fernanda and calls my attention to the photographer somehow. I don't intuit that that was your intent. I guess my 7-year old daughter put it better than I could when she walked into the study, looked over my shoulder thinking it was one of mine and blurted out "Whoa, what happened there? Do you think you can you fix that?" I'm not pretentious enough to claim any correct-ness in what I'm observing here but I sometimes think my daughter could teach John Szarkowski a thing or two. Yours in respectful honesty.

Cheers!

Bob G.

Default To rgarrigus: Is your daughter an expert...?

"" is what your wide angle did to her head. If you don't mind me trying to put this gut feeling ""

Dear Bob...
It's distortion made by me in the Photoshop.
I distort, I tweak, I lie, I enchant, I cheat, I confuse, I create...

For, my name is Polonaise and THERE IS NOTHING in my photographs that is NOT under my full control.

In other words...
Problem with the motha****r like me is that is extremely difficult to teach the old dog - anything...

If you see THE THING in my photo, think... Polonaise wanted that way...

You may not like it or you may disapprove it, but... That's the way I wanted.

Thanks buddy pal.
Wonderful visit.
Be warm - stay cool.

Fair enough George but your Photoshop work here screwed up a good photo plain and simple from my point of view. Subjective as this photography thing is...

In other words...

Fernanda deserved better than what you did here whether you wanted it that way or not. After all your note purports this to be about the subject and not you. Maybe George isn't the lover of humanity he so evangelistically claims to be? Only you know the answer to that.

Sorry if I've been too honest George. I seem to have offended you and that certainly wasn't my intent. Nothing more to say really but if you like it then drive on good man. I'll leave you alone from now on.

Cheers!

Bob G.

Hey, Hey... Bob

It is my job in here, on TE - to offend the others... :-)))))


Distorted Fernanda...

There are myriads of un-distorded Fernandas - everywhere !

Mine one is a distorded one... For my willing... For my decision...

My undisrorted fernanda was posted before not being able to evoke any emotions...
Just one of these 20mm. close ups by Polonaise.
This Fernanda cleatly offended some refined senses of an order and beauty...
Yippee !!!
My job is done...

"As long as I bite"...

...................

Please, Bob... Don't be upset... You are a great guy, and I am ..?Well... I'm Polonaise...
Not that easy to deal with - guy...

Love for you and your daughter.
Breathe deeply, good buddy

PS: I am the lover of humanity... My sort of humanity...

Bear hug..
