"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."
~ Andre Kertesz

this is so brilliant and with a really awesome and unusual pov ... you keep surprising me, though i should know by now what to expect from you ... ;-))

Basile Pesso from Paris, City of Aminus, France

I put the links of the 2 firsts, like everyday, in my photo of yesterday comments : Isa H and Mowgli.
After them, I have Gérard Beullac, you and Apodromos.
I managed to solve, with the help of Jason and other people, the problems for the last 2 pictures, but not really for the two first ones : still a difference of contrast for the 2nd, and of saturation (nearly pixellisation-like) for the first one.
It's linked to the fact that I'm on Mac, on Firefox, (what is your browser ?) and that I had to make a different setting to record the pictures in RGB for web and not camera RGB.
With A+, I can also have buttons to click on, like metadata, but even by doing all that, it doesn't work for the moment for the two firsts, and sometimes it even worsens !
I have to try again and understand exactly the long explanation of Jason, it must exist a solution.

7 Jun 2012 6:09pm

@Basile Pesso: thanks a lot . I love picture by Stijin. It is an amazing portrait with great processing. Cannot find Apodromos ( we do not visit each other ). I have been using Firefox as recommended by Am3. I am glad you got a great instructions from Jason. The best way to solve any issue is to contact him .
