Very nice images. You certainly get around!
Jacques Dubé08-Feb-2010 17:10
You really make amazing pictures, especially -- but not only -- of people. Congratulations!

You said in a forum (which led me to your PBase galleries) that the Sony 35mm 1.4 was the king of prime lenses, but I hardly found any pictures taken with it among those of your galleries I went through. I would like to see some (if possible, taken with the A900) because I am thinking about maybe getting that lens for my new A850.
Guest 30-Jan-2009 19:32
Love your images! I also shot with a Minolta 7D.

I have appreciated your work a lot. It must take a lot of time and money, but what fun! I notice that you use VERY good eqipment. For my part, just starting out w digital, i-photo and use of e-mail to tell stories to friends and family. Looking at a great many photos on PBase helps me undersand what's the difference between a snap shot and a "Photograph". But, always working on it, and sometimes a good old snapshot of family life is just the right thing.

Pllease, keep up the great work, and thank you so much for sharing!

Thank you for taking the time to share

"It is said that the truly great, inspire those around them to greatness without intention"
You’re why I love and push this site so hard
the most talented people in our society aren’t published for all to judge, more over they inspire this countries foundation. Leave it to the HW culture to make sure some thing great is eventually covered and flashed across our adoring pages of worthless endeavors as a F***ed up society stuck on fake crack!

In short “ROCK ON!!” where ever you are and remember your opinion is all the truly matters so make sure some how your happy or laughing at your self in all your life’s efforts

SRH needs to stop editing the endless supply of wedding pictures
Thank God I love what I do, some times though I?

Mark,
Your Middle East galleries are truly an eye-opener. You present such a different image of the region, so much more human, so much more beautiful than the media-driven world of hate that drives our fears. Thank you for this, such simple truth was never needed more.
markwp15-Dec-2005 13:35
I really appreciate all of your supportive words, it means a lot when fellow photographers feels inspirid by my work, as I learn so much from all of you.

Erina -- the selective color galleries are actually done quite quickly, see a discussion of different methods here, below the mian gallery:http://www.pbase.com/markwp/splash

Thanks for your kind words about my pictures. You are among my favorite photographers and, of what I have seen, certainly one of the top 5 Konica Minolta 7D users. Shy as I am in approaching people with my camera, I particularly envy your candids and portraits. Your pictures of the Middle East are superb!

Mark,

Your images capture a wide variety of subjects with a rare combination of careful composition, appreciation of the the value of good lighting, and a flare for creative ideas that is so essential in creating moving images. Your "People I've Encountered" gallery displays your ability to the greatest degree -- I would encourage you to to take more portraits as you continue to develop your photography. I'm developing several travel websites at this time, and I'll be contacting you in regard to the use of some of your wonderful travel shots,

All the best -- and keep shooting!!
