Hello Rene, just dropped by for a looksee... like the idea of the IR converted D30.
Maybe when I upgrade from my 300D i'll get it done.
In the meantime, just plod on with my dimage.
I picked up the link to your work at Inkjet transfers. I really like what you are doing. I never seem to have time to work on transfers. Beautiful photography. Great work with the transfers!
Rene, I love your work. Can´t get enough of browsing your galleries. Wonderful, fabulous, gorgeous !
Rene, I feel so fortunate to have met you through our PPSOP course on painting photographs. Your work is simply stunning and takes my breath away. To express it more poetically, it makes my soul sing. Thank you for all you are giving !
I have enjoyed the visit, your work is simply amazing.... Bernie
Thanks for the comment on my picture
Merci de ta visite et de tes commentaires, je reviendrai visiter tes galeries si riches et originales régulièrement.
Rene your presentation in your IR gallery is icing on the cake! Your photography is artistic to say the least I just love it and the emotion it brought me. Thanks so much for sharing your self.
Rene, there are just too many beautiful images in your galleries to look at them all in one visit - lovely work.

Hi Rene thanks for the comment on my recent sunflower - as you can see I gave them their own gallery. I really love sunflowers and they are so much fun to work with - from one little photo shoot of 6 supeermarket flowers I have lots more to work with - I love trying out different styles of working digitally.

Rene - thanks for visiting and commenting on my Three Men And A Boat. My dad took the picture with his little point and shoot camera and he must have had some setting wrong because the color was horrible - a bright blue cast. I loved it so I fixed it up!
Nice galleries. Good work. I enjoyed it.
Thank you Rene for commenting on my pet fish image, Toward The Light. It was so nice of you to look at an image that I so hesitantly advertised on the Group list. I appreciated that.
I love coming to look through your galleries. It is always an inspiration.
Hi Rene, Just a quick note to thank you for dropping by my galleries and leaving a comment. I have just had a quick look around your galleries and you have some really nice work. Be back later for a better look
Hi Rene, lovely galleries in a beautiful lay-out. I enjoyed my visit.
Hi Rene -- I saw your galleries because they were on the front page at pbase just now(!). I was intrigued by your Polaroid manipulations -- real interesting work! My good friend, Michael Going, is also a Polaroid manipulator. He's been doing it for a long, long time. I wonder if you have ever seen his work? You can see his portfolio at www.goinggallery.com.
you are a multitalented artist....that shows in your photographs
Thank you for your comment on my SP !
Enjoyed your gallery and creativity!
Gonzalo Garcia de Viedma

Many thanks for your nice comments on my pictures! The guy you see sleeping in the background was actually the policeman in charge of watching the front door of the Valladolid's townhall(Mexico)!!There wasn't much too see down there town but I will always remember him, the scene was so funny! We woke him up as we entered the hall and seemed to have made such of an effort just by giving us a smile back!:)
I like your galeries a lot too, I like the light in them -need to spend more time though to see your work better. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for your comments on my photos! It mean alot to me, coming from such a talented photographer!
Thanks for the nice comments on my photo
You have a great collection ..... Very artistic
And again, what an inspiration for us all. I love what you are doing with your pictures.
Rene, thanks so much for commenting on the somewhat surly, zen-like cat photo. It's much appreciated. You have such a rich, wonderfully complex body of work here. It's simply amazing. I've bookmarked you and will be back to give your gallery all the time it deserves.
all the best,
Thank you so very much for your comment on my Gardenia,

Rene, thanks for your kind words on my mandarin duck image. Your are very talented...I really enjoyed your beautiful galleries.
Thanks so much for the wonderful comments on my photos. Browsing through your gallery is like walking through an art gallery at a museum. Your photos are absolutely incredible. I will be coming back on a regular basis to see what your creative mind has come up with.
Thanks for visiting my gallery and your kind words.
Very much enjoying visiting your galleries. Can't take everything in at once. Will have to add you to my favorites. Just coincidentally I quoted Diane Arbus in one of my pictures:
Thanks for stopping by my gallery and leaving a comment. I always like to take a look at the work of those who've looked at mine. I am blown away by the quality of your work - it is so expressive and beautifully executed. I am in awe of such talent and not a little envious too. It's been a real pleasure browsing your images.
Nice Picture ,Beautiful Gallery
Regard Francis and Happy
I have looked through your wonderful photography galleries with passion this afternoon. You have some incredible work. I have left a few comment and some votes. I would like to come back to have a closer look in the not too distant. Please keep up the great work.
Thanks Rene, that was some twenty years ago. How times have changed.
thanks for visiting.. you have a great perspective on life...
Rene, Thanks for visiting my galleries and commenting. It means a lot to me that others take the time to view my work and it encourages me to get even better at this rewarding art and hobby.
Rene, Thanks for the compliment. It's much appreciated. Your work is very inspiring to me and has helped ignite my creativity. Thanks again.
Rene, Thanks you for commenting and critique on my PAD galleries. I was browsing your SX-70 gallery long time ago but was too busy at the moment to properly comment on it. I re-discovered it several days ago and this time I just had to say that this is one of the most inspiring galleries on the Pbase. The surreal soft look of the pictures is very impressive. Great job.
Thanks for visiting my galleries.
Thanks for your advice and comments. Very much appreciated.
All galleries are great. They all have a certain magic about them that just wants to pull me in....
I love how you push to the edge with your PS treatment. Somehow you are able to make it look natural and interesting instead of gimicky. That's not easy to do. And thank you againg for sharing your techniques, I like exploring in PS and will try them. Keep up the creative work.
Thanks for your comments. You have many interesting galleries yourself with a lot of creativity !
Thanks for visiting my photography exercises and for nice comment.
Best wishes !
Nice collection of pics...
Enjoyed my visit....
Rene, you show an immense diversity of creativity - Each gallery holds many beautiful surprises.
Keep up the good work and long may you be inspired.
Hello Rene,excellent and different galleries.
Regards Ian Birch
Thanks for the comment and I like your work. It is very creative.
Thank you for checking out my PAD! Your galleries are just wonderful...I really like the shots of the models under the fabric...just wonderful!
Thanks for visiting my little corner of PBase and for your kind comments. I am a graphic designer by trade but I have not yet tried using PhotoShop on my images. Yours are excellent - keep up the good work.
It's always emotional visit your gallery.
Honoured by your comment.
Go on Rene
Sorry for my very late delay in replying to your wonderful comments. It is always really pleasant to hear from you. In fact, I haven't been on PBase for sometime due to work commitment. Therefore I have only been processing some old images. HOwever I was asked to shoot some street photography for my university. So that's my latest project at the moment.
As always I have enjoyed your recent work and some very well deserve votes for your images. Well done and keep them coming!
Many thanks for your comment. Had a look around your galleries and I am very impressed by the range of artistic images posted.
Your galleries are all really wonderful. What a great artist you are.
All of your Gallerys are fabulous. WOnderful creative work. Enjoyed it all very much.
Thanks for your comment. You have some different and interesting galleries.
Thanks for visiting my site and your compliments.
You have a wonderful variety of images with nice
colors and composition.
Cheers - Tom Bailey

You have a great eye.
Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for stopping by my gallery and adding your comment! You have some amazing photographs on here. I've really enjoyed them!!!
Enjoyed all your galleries. Can imagine Harry is part of the family..
Thank you for the comment on my Niki gallery - I have looked through your stuff again (I have stumbled upon your stuff before) and really love your work. I am inspired to attempt some images using a scanned piece of fabric similar to the shots you have done (Monica Lifted)- super cool stuff!! I also like using rough looking borders around my shots, and you do a great job with those as well (Beach Fences)- I was wondering what technique/action/plugin you use for achieving this? Keep up the good work!!!
Thank you so much Rene... like a said im just a novice and learning...please explain what DOF means? I learn so much just viewing photos on Pbase. Seems everyone on Pbase is so professtional.
Ana Carloto O'Shea
I am so happy that I've discovered your galleries!! Your work is simply amazing... Your works are definitely some of the most beautiful I've seen here on Pbase. I will return many times! You are already on my favourites list!!
I enjoyed your comment on my flip-flop pad. :)
wonderful galleries!!! you have a great talent and I really enjoyed the visit. I'll come back for more.
Thanks for your comment. I am most impressed with your fabulous shots. You have been on my list of favorites to visit.
Renee, your work is bodacious! Outstanding! Incredible! I'm hubled that someone with your talent visited my humble galleries.......thanks for sharing your work, and thank you for the kind words you left for me.
Rene, thank you for visiting my meager site. I feel self-conscious when someone of your talent drops by; you know, like when Michael Jordon stops by the local schoolyard.
I really admire your work. You seem to put a lot of spirit into you images.
You are the first to make my favorite artist list and I intend to learn by watching your work.
I love your work. Full of hidden emotions and masterfuly executed. Remarkable.
Hi Rene. I just had a quick look, but I am definitelly going back soon as I am fascinated by some of your images !
wonderful galleries, rene.
Wow, I love all your galleries. You have a wonderful and artisitc style.
Hello Rene, you have some startling images and I like your work. I will be back to view more, as I would love to see all you have done and pass some useful comments. Great work.

Hi thanks for you comment on my "Primal Scraem" :)
Your works are all GREAT!! Seems like you are a true Artist! Amazing.....
Thank you for visiting my galleries. You have a very creative portfolio. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the comments you left in a couple of my galleries. Seems we have been travelling somewhat parallel photographic roads. I find your work fascinating.
Rene, you have such a great variety of wonderful images! Your work has a creative breadth and artistic quality that is truly inspirational. I will be coming back often to see your new ideas and hopefully learn from them. Barry

eric st martin

Your galleries are magic! You give such special feeling trough your photographs!
Great creativity too! I'll come back for sure. Kim
Rene, the cactus at
is only about 4 inches tall, including the flower. See
What a very nice collection of your work you have here, Rene. I can tell you love what you do with making images and sharing your vision. I want to thank you for visiting my gallery and making such a nice comment on my sepia magnolia. That took me a few hours before I got it the way it spoke back to me.."Stop---that's it."
Hi Rene, Thanks for visiting my PAD gallery and jou're nice comments!!!
The cows are lovely. They are very big and the grass is very beautiful.
Rene you have a planty of creative work in jour galleries. I really like your images. Best wishes, Ieke
Thank you Rene for stopping by at my gallery. I liked very much yours too. Some of them are high quality art. Those made by Polaroid to name one. Im quite sure that you are already aware that they look like the work of the impressionists. Admit that you were inspired by Renoir? :-)
Absolutly wonderful galleries, such unique and stunning images.
The Suburban Hippie
Rene, thank you for your comments. I will work on getting and using a diffuser. I would try and comment on your images and critique them, but I am not really qualified. Thanks again.
Rene, I love your work. Your images are very unique and sensual. There's no question that you are a highly skilled photographer as well as a talented artist.
Thank you for yuor comment. Yes, there are Cuttlefishes. And they are good to eat. I like your leaves in Macro 1 gallery. I'll be back later to see the others better. Best wishes, Pascale.
Really creative and beautiful images. You do with photoshop the kinds of things I hope to do some day.
Once again, thank you very much for your generous comments on my gallery. Feel really chuffed to have such nice comments from such an accomplish photographer like yourself. Really love all your work especially the polaroids galleries. I am rather new to photography - there are so much to learn lol..xx
Rene, your work is uninhibited and truly creative. I'm considering taking some courses where you linked to, as I've gotten sidetracked with a group of talented digital artists who mostly celebrate realism and "coloring inside the lines". Thank you for inspiring so many others.
Thanks for your comments on my site, I hope you'll return soon to make some more, new updates daily!
Excellent work in your galleries. I just had to add you to my favorites list.
Thank you so much for dropping by and commenting on my site.
You have a great blend in most of your work between photography and other art forms, something I don't have the skill, or should be said desire, to do myself but I admire it very much when done well, as you have done. Congratulations and keep them coming!
Thanks for your kind comments on my galleries. I've really enjoyed looking at your Polaroid lifts and transfers gallerries. You have a great eye.
Thank you for your comment and message! Ciao...Lorenzo
You have a beautiful portfolio. Very talented and quite emotional. I wish to get started experimenting with Polaroid transfers. Yours have given me the push that I needed to just do it. Thanks.
You are a true artist, Rene.. I'm so impressed .. your art is the kind I'd love to own.. quite beautiful
First, thank you very mich for your kind comments on my site. It is always a good feeling when someone appreciates what they see there.
I was browsing through your galleries, what a magnificent and unique style you have. The photographs are wonderfully clean and perfectly composed. All the "rules" are followed when it is needed, and when you break the rules...you do so in a way that makes for a powerful and dramatic piece.
I am adding you to my favourites so I can come back again and again.....WONDERFUL!!
Thank you for the comments and very good critism, I appreciate your time and feedback. I looked at your images and am very impressed. Keep up the great work! -Micha
Thanks for your comments on my galleries. Very much appreciated. I really like your macro work!
I enjoyed a tour of your galleries. You have a unique visual eye which is very well expressed through your lens. Fantastic shots indeed!
Rene, I'd say you're an inspiration but you'd be such a hard act to follow. I see quality, not quantity is your motto but it's criminal you don't have more hits! Your craft is exceptional. Regards, Niall.
your galleries are a truly awesome work! I particularly liked the polaroid ones!
Thanks for your comments on my site, that made me discover your stunning images.
Thank you Rene for your kind comments on my site.I'm envious of your incredible sophisticated talent.Your images have such amazing emotive power.Brilliant work!Thank you for sharing your vision with us on pbase:-)
You've got some great stuff here Rene. Thanks for commenting on my gallery so I'd find yours. I always visit photographers who take the time to comment on my work and I'm very glad I did on this occasion as well. You're very talented, I'll be back to visit often.
I love your work.
I wish I had half the perspective that you have visually...
One day I will ....
good work.. can't wait to see more.
Thanks for visiting and for comments, some great pics in your galelries. I liked especially your macros
Rene, thank you for your kind comments !
Thank you for your comments. You also have a nice collection. The "Flowers" gallery has to be my favorite. I will check back later to see if you have added any more photos.
Checked most of your pictures! You're really good at the macro shots... I like most of their compositions, you've got a pretty good eye for that! Take care! - Menno
Excellent Photos - very cool - thanks for sharing :)
Outstanding galleries of photos, among so much mediocrity on this site...!!!
Hi Rene, Gosh, I was back again, and I just love the unique look you create with your photos! I will be looking again soon, there are several I want to ask about technique, hope that is ok. Kind Regards, Audra
It has truly been enjoyable to check out your photographs. Keep up your excellent work!
Rene ! Your galleries are stunning ! I love particularly the two polaroid one and the "macro experiment" and the "more macro images".... actually i should say that I have to come back to enjoy all of your galleries !!! You're on my artist favorite list !!!
Rene, you have to post more, your pictures are beautiful. Adrian
Thanks for your comments on my gallery. (I'm still trying to figure out pbase but I saw that I could look up your gallery). Besides the composition, I really like the processing you've done. I'm still new to this "game" and every place I look there are so many neat things to learn. Your's was a very pleasant view. Thank you.
Again thanks for your comments.
Wonderful stuff, Rene. I'm especially blown away by your Polaroid art. Amazing. Will be a regular visitor from now on.
Rene, thank you very much for you comment on my newly create gallery about Colombia.
I just started with photography and hope I can learn alot from people like you.
Thank you again
Hi Rene, Thanks for your comment in one of my galleries. I apreciate your helpful comment on the rule of thirds. I find it hard to draw myself away from the big picture. I don't seem to be able to draw myself away from filling the frame and centering the subject. I will try and change my perspective on things, but being an amateur, I dunno wether I can.
It'll be fun trying though.
Benoit Durocher Photographie
Hi Rene , thanks for your advise , I crop the picture , it was a good idea.
Rene, I know I would have left a comment before, sometimes I visit certain galleries often and I deeply enjoy them, but I forget to leave a sign of my passage to thank the author for his/her work, which has given me joy.
I really appreciate your work, your unique style and your discreet nature, without any flashy feature.
Thank you for the beauty you offer to us.
Very nice Rene. I like your work and style. TFS. Kind Regards, Audra
Rene, you've got a fantastic handle with composition and light. All of your galleries are stunning and the images are very powerful. I've enjoyed them all. Thanks for stopping by my galleries. Your comments are much appreciated :)
thanks rene for taking up my challenge :-) I will have a good look into your special work. take care, blu
Thanks for your comment on
, Rene. I'd never seen a jellyfish in ice before, but it was clearly alive and seemingly healthy. It made an impression, since we didn't see a lot of animal life in Greenland.
I've enjoyed viewing your galleries, particularly the macros, the manipulations, and the photos from Bonnieux.
Definitely a unique style with the ability to create an image rather than just take a picture. Enjoyed your aspect of macro & the creation of beauty. It's a direction I'd love to go, but am still only taking pictures.
Keep going, I'll be popping back.
I like your unique style. You have a great eye for interesting details and angles. You present an art gallery, not just a photo gallery.
Thank you for the kind words of welcome, I love to know other people are actually looking at my galleries. Your photographs are beautiful! I especially like the one of the dog, his/her eyes are so clear and bright...well focused. Keep up the great work!
Thanks for the nice comment at my photo
You got really lovely photos ;-)
Hi Rene, thanks for your comments, I wish more people would do it, I've only picked a camera up half a dozen times and really think I would benefit from comments by more experienced people. I also have a Macro lense so will have to get out to a local garden centre or somewhere with some interesting and colourful plants/flowers. Some of yours are beautiful and I would love to be able to take similar.
As for the banners, I think as the pictures I have taken so far are easy to group, by trip, it seemed a sensible thing to do.
Peter, thanks for the link to the example. I may want to try this sometime. Your assistance is appreciated.
Hi Rene --
Thanks for your nice comment on Infructescence . You can find an example of thumbnail links plus a text link
