The Larger view

Rooftop of Lebua, Bangkok

"acquaintance" ... It's great meeting you, KM!:-)

From my recent business trip to Bangkok in August.

FUJIFILM X-Pro1 1/52 second F/2.8 ISO 1600 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Quelle séduction......

You make a big deal with this trip, Hugo. And we too with this image.
This is love (modest opinion but true feeling!)
(Sorry, I profit: what "bokeh" means! :-)

Veronique from France, Switzerland

I like your composition of the lady's head facing the light (s)

k@ from Paris, France

She's beautiful, one can feel that, the way she stands, so sensuous and at ease, a beauty the way you framed her, we feel so close to her shoulder, like in a romantic movie scene, i can feel a kiss nearby ;) The bubbles of light in the bokeh seems figurating all the eyes admiring her natural. Bravo, dear friend*

J.R. from Urasoe City, Japan

Great, romantic scene but where's her bo?:)

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

This is an exceptional picture in which we are in a close company with this person for sharing some special moment at the view of the large city in the fall.
Well seen, extremely well done.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Wonderful shot with just enough shadow detail to define her and her emotions, the bokeh is just fantastic at the back!

mo.langel from Courtelary, Switzerland

Wow! Excellent composition! Superb DOF, B/W and framing! Bravo! Have a nice day Hugo!

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

The intimate feeling brought by the shallow depth of field is absolutely wonderful. The out of focus city lights and the twilight are silhouetting the woman in a splendid way.

Basile Pesso from City of Aminus, Paris, France

Superb emotion. Masterpiece.
Excellent deframing, focus and mood.
It's totally my style, as you know.

SalSa from Tehran, Iran

I feel the sense of her when she looked up to the city lights ...and I feel some cool wind in these scenes.

Pavan Kaul from Mumbai, India

An unforgettable image Hugo...such an atmosphere of wonder & a mood that comes with being in a place that is high up above with all the life that lies down below...away from it all yet a part of it...the lovely, graceful silhouette of the woman is provocative, mysterious & promising...surely a person that cares for the finer things that can be perceived only in solitude! Brilliant image my friend!

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

I like very much this composition. The woman looking expresses a feeling of melancholy (for me)

RORO from LE HAVRE, France

I like the mood here, a real intensity with the b&w, maybe it is missing some more city in the background

Doug Hickok from Charleston, South Carolina, United States

You have the wonderful ability to incapsulate the wondrous and captivating mood of the city at night Hugo :^)
