Marianne Le Carrour A bit too grey for me, but mysterious shot BTW.

Mark Hamilton I like the lower contrast. It gives the image a sort of vintage appeal

C L Pour réagir à Pascal, mon écran je l'ai calibré, et je trouve la photo super... Comme quoi la "qualité" d'une photo c'est aussi et surtout très subjectif ! J'aime... j'aime pas... bien sûr ! Par contre bon ... ou mauvais... ça c'est quand même plus dur - voire impossible à déterminer : personne n'a les mêmes critères, à mon avis, il n'y a pas de Vérité photographique unique. Quant à la distorsion, qui dit qu'il s'agit de distorsion, et non de la courbe naturelle de cette porte, ou de cette alcôve... ? Enfin, j'aime ce qui est "propre", mais j'aime aussi l'imperfection, le grain, le bruit, la distorsion, l'oblique, le penché, le bancal, le flou, le bougé : car tel est notre monde ! Le Beau se conjugue aussi à l'imparfait !

Pierre-olivier Vanier Wonderful (you already know that)... Oui, Pascal, le manque de contraste est "volontaire" (du moins la volonté de ne pas les corriger) ici, ce voile qui ajoute un mystère, une épaisseur, fait partie du charme de cette photo, par sa lumière si étrange... les aléas du pola... moi je trouve ça esthétique mais on peut comprendre aussi que ça puisse déranger...

Bruno Mercier J'ai un écran particulièrement pas du tout qualibré lol.. Mon qualibrage reste ma subjectivité et mes yeux. Ici j'aime justement l'absence de contraste qui donne un effet vaporeux sombre, une image qui suggère plus qu'elle ne dit sous une lumière crepusculaire ou lunaire pour moi parfaite.
C'est à la fois très doux, intime et très évocateur, presque sonore... Les bruissement de la robe.. les murmures..
Pour moi il n'y a rien à jeter... le traitement est juste comme et là où il doit être.

Elinor A Scott merci, pierre. my french is horrible, so... the lack of contrast against the light on the beads is what i was after. otherwise, i wanted almost total darkness. the real print was glossy, so it wasn't quite so flat. the distortion is from the glass holga lens. my holga (the one i use most often) is an over-achiever. it has a glass lens! i wish i could participate better in this conversation in french, but i could read it just fine.

Ghost Limited ..Oh..I had missed this one...it just seems that the 1962 bride is back through her..and it's wonderful the way the dress tissue looks fine even if taken by Holga...
