We are also proud of Tang Tawanwad Wanavit‎ for his continued effort and showing improvement in leaps and bounds. He is a hard working photographer and we wish him all the best. Congratulations once again.

Vineet Vohra and Rohit Vohra – This is a wonderful image, intriguing at first and the viewer is forced to stop and have a second look. Good use of flash here, it captures the gaze very well. One can feel the tension created within the frame. Could be easily passed off as a wildlife shot, however it shows the street photographers approach in creating this inspiring scene.

The idea behind LeicaFeedbackfriday is simple, to provide meaningful feedback to members, an hour is dedicated to providing critique and having a meaningful dialog. Leica was kind enough to back us up and present one of the most iconic books, Leica Practicum – Theory and practice of LEICAgraphy – silver halide and photo detector imaging with Leica M cameras by Erwin Puts.

We will like to take this opportunity to thank Leica for their commitment to the craft and always being generous to the community.

Vineet Vohra and Rohit Vohra – This is a great shot, going in close and getting the picture in the phone as well. Works on many levels. Great layers, the water droplets and details, everything adds to the composition. Eye moves nicely from right to left. The eye just keeps moving in a circle not letting the viewer out of the frame.

Thanks admins for always taking the time out and making this a success.

Have a great weekend everyone.
