"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."

Pixim from Nice, France

The strength of the photographer is to find the point of view unusual, which changes the vision of everybody. Your photo is a perfect example. I also like these red pikes which perturb no spectator concentrated in their vision

Excellent. J'aime beaucoup cette composition de barres et de pieds
