Hello Eric,
nice the close up view of the book as the hand of the statue with the details to are captured excellent.
I like the clarity of the image as the light and the colour management of the scene.

Hi Eric,

Great choice on your aperture setting, it greatly enhances the fine detail at the focal point of the image and makes an otherwise casual photo into something much more interesting. The hint of color from the leaves are fantastic against the grey tones. This is simple, yet attractive. Nicely done!



Bonsoir Eric,
Intéressante réalisation. Le choix du POV ainsi que le "focus" sur le livre est des plus excellents.
Belle gestion de la lumière également.


Hi Eric's
Hoe maak je een uitzicht op de prachtige en aantrekkelijke vast te leggen. Details zijn goed gedocumenteerd. Mijn goede vriend.

Groeten ...

Hello Eric - I like this creative and detailed look of hand and book very much. Textures and form are beautifully apparent thanks to the light and your DOF works attractively. The few small dead leaves add the perfect detail which adds atmosphere to the shot. Lovely! Warm regards Rosemary

Dag Erik

Mooi hoe de foto de ruwe textuur van de steen naar voor brengt. Ook de herfstblaadjes zijn een mooi element in het geheel: de natuur die rust (of: tegengehouden wordt) door de cultuur. Knap gezien.


Hi, Eric,
Very nice composition, I like this cropped photo. Simple but interesting fragment of a monument. Fine title too.

Without books mankind would not have been what it is today. The printed word, as opposed to the stultifying television is the greatest human invention. Beautiful composition in excellent quality and color.

Dag Eric,

Ik kan me niet onmiddellijk deze book herinneren, moet meer opletten wanneer ik dergelijke zaken passeer.
Goed detail van de stenen boek.
Goed en leerrijk foto werk, bedankt.

Prettig weekend,

quite effective thru a nicely managed angle.

Bonjour Eric
Pas mal du tout le cadrage, j'aurai même cadré plus bas vers la main pour avoir plus impact sur le livre, la main, le rendu des détails, belle et intéressante réalisation
Belle soirée

Oi, Eric!

O foco da foto no livro ficou bem legal, com o fundo meio desfocado. O enquadramento e a nitidez são muito bons! Boa luz também.
Boa foto!
