    Nice shot, very interesting.
The warm lighting on this shot is very nice and so is the angle at which you took this. I really like the look on this guys face and the composition.

This is an AMAZING photograph Wanda! I love everything about it. I love the painting as the drop back, his arms and pose, his wonderful look, the soft warm lighting...the 18th century feel. Beautiful!

This is simply superb, Wanda. You've captured an essence here that makes one feel they are looking at Michelangelo in 1503 as he is contmeplating his painting of the Sistine chapel. Truly excellent work.

Very nice !! composition and viewing angle. The artist is quite a character, at first I thought he was part of the painting.

VERY beautiful image you've achieved here, Wanda - I agree with others that it's hard to believe that it's not a painting!! Many congratulations on your Second Place win with it recently - it was MOST deserved! :)

Dear Wanda,

I just now have seen that you have won a second prize for this picture/painting. I thought it was the BEST photo of every photo in our Creative Photo class, and I can only say that I think it deserves to have a First Prize. It is simply divine! How have you printed and framed it? I think it would be beautiful large and on canvas. A real winner!

Dear Wanda,

Yes, it is nice to connect with you again. I am doing well and taking more and more shots. I just took a four day trip to Venice and you can see some of the shots on my better photo website. I am taking my second class at BP on Mastering Light with Jim Zuckerman which has been really nice. How about you? Did you ever frame and print that beautiful photo of the artist?

I am taking a printing course right now on BP...so I have not printed anything yet...I have missed seeing your work...so my next stop is to view your site....I took Jim's class a couple of years ago and loved every minute of it...because of his class I started doing people.

Checked out your gallery, Wanda, when viewing your POTD today & found this amazing capture! I honestly thought it was a photograph of an old painting!!It could be Michaelangelo! What a find & what a capture! I am amazed... it should have been FIRST prize winner!!!

Kathryn...Thank you...I know what you mean,( "so many photos so little time" ) if I could sit here at my job and do photography all day instead, I'd be very happy.

This looks like Leonardo da Vinci to -ME-! But whose work is that in the BG? HA!

This is awesome! Congrats on your big win! Great capture and well deserving indeed, Wanda!
