Excellent submissions this week. Great to see so many different people posting images from so many places around the world. That is what TPN is all about!


Travel & Outdoor

Excellent detail, especially in the larger (original) view. You get a real sense of the passage of time with the heavy vines, colored patina of the stone and rubble in the foreground of fallen walls.

People & Portrait

The expression on the face is very real and believable. Very genuine. The black and white presentation lets me really focus on the expression, too. Well done!

Nature & Wildlife

I really like the low perspective and wide angle lens. It really accentuates the tallness. You've done an excellent job holding on to the color in the cactus given the silhouette against the bright sun. The sun serves as a great backlight similar to the the background light one often sees in a studio portrait.

Weekly Challenge - Cities and Towns

There were many great images from which to choose. I used the theme details (commercial city hub) to help narrow down my selection. What I love about this image is the energy conveyed by the night scene. It speaks commerce and night life. Well done!

Thanks for the pick. Never thought of portrait photography as a strong area for me, maybe I was wrong.
