Hi Ted,

Just to clarify, the image has not been shoot by Philippe, is by me,
Philippe has not the "responsability"..., maybe because is mine..., but I'm
happy with it, even the reflection imperfection IMHO it shows a certain
impressionism, not precise, but emotionally it can be appreciated. Well, I
hope I have said the right words, even if it is quite difficult for me to
say what I want in English.

I always appreciate your opinion, we always learn with the opinions of the
right people.

Saludos cordiales

>>The poetry stays. Whatever the crop IMO.<<<



I have looked at this image, cropped or not each time it comes on screen
trying to see what you see? And quite frankly whatever crop or not it's a
major stretch of imagination to make anything out of it worth while. :-(

I know that's a hard cut on your exposure, but honestly an awful lot of your
time has been wasted on this exposure. I even have a difficult time calling
it a photograph, reflection or other wise.

This is purely an image only you can truly appreciate because you were there
and saw this clearly. As a photograph there's so much detail lost one has to
use more imagination than actually seeing an understandable photo.

Sorry mate no one learns when others are telling you to do different things
with this to make it work, maybe?

When the hard nose killer truth is. are you ready? "Delete it!" and remember
it as a memory lost!

I can well understand if you get pissed off with me, that's your prerogative
and right because you made the exposure! 

However look at how much time you've spent trying to make it work and look
like what you saw reflected in the window.

I praise you when you shoot some of the wonderful photographs you've taken.
But in this case I will not give false praise when there's nothing there to
give any positive commentary. Other than, "well done for trying!" Chalk it
up to, "Oh well it didn't work this time and move on."
