      Thank you very much, Dolly. It was a very simple scene – just one sprout in the middle of something. But the color and reflection were amazing and I was very impressed with them.

      Thank you very much. This is a very interesting question. Why photography is often compared to painting, but painting is rarely compared to photography. But they do the same thing – reflect what people see. A camera, a brush are only tools for this. Is the brush the best tool?

        No, I feel the camera is the best tool. Painters many times use photographs to help them. A local painter paid me for photos they used when painting watercolours. Not all use photographs, but I know some do. Paintings are often interpretative. Some photographs are more artistic than others.

        I think the artists who paid you for your photos are just lazy. In the old days, the first step in creating a painting was to create a sketch in the open air. I believe that this is a very important step, because from my experience I must not only see, but also feel. And this should be my personal view and my personal feeling.

      Thanks a lot, Marc. Almost everything was green. And if I took this photo completely sharp, I’m not sure it would be clear what the main subject of this photo is.

      Thank you very much. I love photographing reflections. On the one hand it is real, but on the other it looks like something illusory.
