"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Loukas from Ilioupolis, Greece

Beuatiful. It looks more a painting than a real photo. Have you used many images?

Excellent, wasnt too sure what was going on for a second. What have the 2 kids in the middle got on their foreheads, or is it from the netting?

Excellent use of a texture (or is it a safety mesh?)
One of the reasons I enjoy coming here is the great variety that you bring.

@Curly: you are right - it is a trampoline net ! thanks Curly !

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Incredible. You have no limitations whatsoever to the way you see and present the world around you. It is such a joyous and creative mode of self-expression, this photography, and in an image such as this one the infectious boundless energy of the children is matched by your flawless delivery and sharing. Yeah, it is high praise, and it is well deserved!

I guess the painterly effect comes from the protective netting around the trampoline. It is fantastic.

Love this softening and yet textural separation effect over the light and laughing bunch of colorful kids. It is like a muffler too, their shouts and squeals are reduced some. :-)
