Fantastic girl !!
Great setting, angle of the photo and perspective! I like the black and white. Obviously the choice of this model works very well here. Nice idea and nice work!!
Hi John. Great setting. Lovely Model. Fantastic image. You just keep churning them out! Such quality...
Very cool and original.
I agree wirth you Warren, thank you. On re-reading my remark it may sound a little aggresive which I did not mean it to be, I'm just defending a point of view. All I really meant ito say is that experts in various schools of thought sometimes insist on rules which do not really exist (where are they, who wrote them?) but are made up to suit certain conditions. They get cited later by people whose imagination does not go beyond the confines of their immediate experience and who believe they can apply them to all. Again in the Metropolitan I saw a series of huge empty coloured canvases with single arbitrarrily placed images on them the size of my thumbnail. It's certainly not my cup of tea, but the point being made I assume is that art as you say is free and not governed by dogmas. Once again, we are after all at the Metropolitan, along with the Louvre the greatest museum in the world, the ultimate sign of success and possibly a better reference than some of the critiques on PN. Thank you very much for taking up the discussion. John
Why is it that every time I'm immediately attracted to an image, 90% of the time it turns out to be a John Peri creation?! I guess because your images are just damn good John, no matter how you cut it! Yes, it's always great to work with a model who knows how to move, but it's still up to the photographer to 'feel the moment' and snap the shutter. It's still up to the photographer to ensure the light is right. It's still up to the photographer to check the composition and the framing. The shadow doesn't bother me. In fact, I didn't even notice it until I read the comment about it! Actually, I think it lends itself to be a good contrast for her torso. And, as you've mentioned to me before, people cast shadows... why do we try so hard to eliminate them? After all, isn't that what photography is... light and shadow?! I've appreciated the dialogue in your comments from various photogs on this one John, as I have responded to another photographer just today about this very subject... 'stepping out of the box, and daring to be different.' Keep up the excellent work my friend! Best, Michael
Thank you Stefan, you are absolutely right of course. It was in a very restricted space and I had to use my flash. However I am posting fom my laptop and I cannot work the photos, so when I get home I'll see if I can correct the curves a bit ... but humans do make shadows, only ghosts do not .. :-) Many thanks for your comment. John
Beautiful creation John.Excellent light.Best regards My Friend.Janusz.
John, Beautiful and dramatic! My compliments to you both. Jim Phelps
Well thanks Michael, but we do owe a lot to these young ladies, some professional, some not, that put their trust in us to represent them well. Glad you liked this one .. the poor girl became filthy in that room .. :-)
John...you wrote: So many self proclaimed experts today insist on making comments to us regarding such trivialities that none of the truly succcesful artists ever cared two hoots about ... :-) Goes back to the age old question; "What is art??" I think hardfast rules in art are made to be broken and I am a firm believer in the idea that "art is in the eye of its creator and in the eye of its beholder."

La perspectiva y el escenario son magníficos, fascinante toma ! Salut.
Thank you friends. This is really all about photography, albeit glamour, but I will conceed that the model is exceptional. Incidentally, this is the room in which the machinery for the lift is situated ... I went to the Metropolitan today. among other things I saw some very beautiful photos by Helen Levitt taken around 1940. I laughed, because here we are in one of the most famous museums in the world and there are photographs without a single straight wall or horizon in them. So many self proclaimed experts today insist on making comments to us regarding such trivialities that none of the truly succcesful artists ever cared two hoots about ... :-)
Hello John... You have a great photo, a great model and a great pose. Even thought I don't have 1/10 of your experience a small minus to this photo is the strong shadow up the stairs. I would have tried to do something with that shadow. Have a nice day... Stefan
ONE OF MY FAVOURITE!! Outstanding, very bold and beautiful, John!! Thanks for your kind visit and continuous support, friend! Warm regards, Rakesh.
Another amazing and lovely shot, just great, congratulations John, saludos //Salvador
I'm returned, my friend! It's not possible to visit soon you!...Ciaomau!
I like it I like the harsh shadow, I think it gives it more of an industrial look. If you notice any industrial area, they've always got that really harsh overhead light that's about 10x brighter than it needs to be it seems like. The thing that makes this unique is that the light is coming from below, instead of above. So, you get that feeling of light being focused on a work area, which in this case works really well with the stairs and the piping/handrails.
