Merci pour votre excellent article sur les filtres. Pourriez-vous me dire comment on calcule l'équivalence lorsqu'on met plusieurs filtres, ex ND4 + ND8 = ND12 ou ND32 ? Autre question, quels sont les 3 ou 4 filtres indispensables selon vous ?

Hi Yves,
I was reading a post from you in dpreview about image stacking high ISO shots to clean them up. The link to the adobe site no longer seems to be working.
Is this method explained anywhere else on your site please?
Guest 08-Jun-2011 19:54
Magnifique photos M.Pinsonneault!!!

Guest 23-Jan-2011 15:42
Super intéressant ton exposé mercredi dernier à l'APAL. J'ai toujours trouvé que tu étais un des meilleurs conférenciers parmi ceux et celles que le club invite, tout est clair, bien expliqué,et toujours une pointe d'humour, Et que dire des photos présentées à la fin, Wow! tu ne parlais pas à travers ton chapeau, théoricien oui, mais praticien encore plus. Désolée d'être partie avant la fin, j'étais trop fatiguée.

Natasha 10-Jan-2011 21:25
Wow superbe ton site,je vois que j'ai encore tout à apprendre.
Merci pour ce partage

Guest 10-Jan-2011 21:02

Congrats for your work! I am so admired you have that incredible talent. Photographer is more than someone who can get a special moment. He must be so sensitive to catch an intencion, a things'soul. You have that eyes. Kênia
Gordon Eyre30-Dec-2010 21:06
I see you are still turning out excellent work Yves. It has been some time since I last viewed your galleries and it is always a pleasure. So fun to see your daughter nearly grown up, she is a lovely young lady. I first met you on dpreview in 2004 and then we both migrated to the Nikon Cafe where I still post occasionally. Hope this finds you well and enjoying life. Gordon Eyre, aka greyflash.
Miss Ann 04-Jul-2010 16:40
Félicitations Yves,
que d'accomplissements et d'évolution depuis plus de 20 ans...
J'ai adoré ce que j'ai vu, vraiment!
La nature, les oiseaux même en vol...,les chevaux, le gel(frosting on a leaf), la robe de mariée...original et très beau, et ta fille bien sûr...même tes auto-portraits ;-)
A quand le site web de Musique?:
tes compositions, ta première Place des Arts, des extraits vidéo où on pourrait entendre ta pourquoi pas un fond musical sur ton site-photo avec Ta musique...
Enfin, tout un artiste!
Au plaisir de se revoir bientôt.
Anne ou Miss Ann , comme tu veux. :-)

Dear Yves,
I have a photograph of my grandfather, taken in the late 1800's or early 1900's. The photography studio was Pinsonneault's, 3 Rivieres, Quebec. I was wondering if you know anything of this studio...I thought maybe it was owned by one of your relatives.
Thank you.

Hi Yves - just followed your link from the Dpreview site to your pBase site and you have the 'eye' and have produced some really fantastic images.
You are now bookmarked as one of my 'favourites'.
Thanks for sharing
Guest 17-Dec-2009 01:20
Tes photos sont très belles, un vrai plaisir à les regarder.
J'aime beaucoup ta galerie avec les animaux dans la neige comme le harfang ainsi que tes paysages.
C'est vraiment du très bon travail, bonne continuation !

You are now in my Fav, I will come back to see more frome you.
You have a great sense of color and composition with perfect technic
Mike S 26-Apr-2008 17:40
Yves, I am a newcomer to digital photography and consequently have visited many, many galleries. This morning I happened across yours. If there were only one camera left in the world, I would want it in your capable hands.
Moazam 08-Apr-2008 13:46
Yves P,

You have one outstanding vision for photography. I like all your galleries very much and wish I could take pictures like you in future, honestly telling you I had the passion for photography since my childhood but only very recently I was able to start practicing it on my own. It is all beacuse of people like you who inspire us to live our dreams.

Thank you and all the best for everything you do...
Guest 05-Apr-2008 22:32
Hello Yves, does it make sense to purchase the 17-35 2.8 lens for a D300 ? One day I hope to own a D3 where it will excel.
Justin Miller26-Mar-2008 20:51

In case you hadn't already found out...I saw your post in the Tribute to Mike Fitzgerald gallery over on the Sony board. Unfortunately, Mike passed away last week. He is sorely missed over on the Sony Talk Forum, and personally by many of us as well.

You may have already found out...but I wanted to make sure you knew.
Guest 11-Mar-2008 19:28
You have the most amazing galleries that I have ever seen. I will definitely come back to view more.
Baggio 28-Feb-2008 13:11
Bonjour YvesP,

Tes images sont vraiment superbes. Il me tarde maintenant de commander mon D300. Malheureusement, il ne me donnera pas le talent dont tu disposes ;-)
J'attends avec impatience les suivantes.

Jon 26-Feb-2008 14:39
Found my way here through DPReview...Yves there are a lot of outstanding photographs here. Really enjoyed the tour......Jon..
chrizuff 06-Feb-2008 09:14
Bonjour YvesP
Merci de nous faire partager ces belles images, que je regarde en tant qu'amoureux de la nature... et passonnné de photo; côté matériel, je viens d'acquérir un D300: le potentiel de cet appareil me paraît énorme...entre les mains d'un utilisateur averti tel que vous! J'ai mis la référence dans mes favoris, et je viendrai régulièrement me faire plaisir aux yeux, comme on dit. C'est un peu égoïste, car je ne me suis pas encore lancé à afficher mes images, mais je pense le faire dès que j'aurai apprivoisé mon matériel...

Encore bravo!

Dan B 05-Feb-2008 00:25
Yves I came across your work in photosig and I am impressed. I had to google you in order to send you a email regarding how amazing your photography is in all categories..I am not in any
of the forums just admire great photography as we all can see....
Thanks Yves
You Rock

Love to see another Canadian showing great pictures. You have such a collection of beautiful composition. Cheers.
Guest 14-Oct-2007 22:46
Bonjour Yves, ta gallerie est vraiment impressionnante. Je ne suis qu'un débutant en photographie (aussi Nikonian) mais je peux apprécier la qualité de ton travail. Tu peux voir mes début sur Zenfolio sous le nom de Photo4fun, ainsi que sur Nikonians sous le nom de Newbird. By the way, si jamais tu voulais upgrader certains équipements et vendre des pièces usagées, cela pourrait m'intéresser...Tu trouveras mon adresse à mes galleries.

Encore une fois, toutes mes féliciations pour ton travail !

Yvan, Neuville, près de Québec.
Craig Sadler13-Oct-2007 19:18
Your photography is a feast for the eyes. wonderful style and execution. Truly inspirational.

wildoat02-Oct-2007 20:05
Magnificent compendium of images.
It`s not so much the way the camera records the images it`s the way you see them that makes them truly outstanding.
Fantastic technically and aesthetically.
Brilliant work.
best wishes
Guest 02-Oct-2007 11:13
I am not someone who comments just to be nice guy when I comment I mean it.You have many outstanding images and have been added to my favorites.Keep it up.

Bonjour, Yves;
Un superbe coup d'oeil servi par des réglages du D2H " aux petits oignons " comme on dit chez nous. Le pays est magnifique, mais c'est ton travail sur la lumière et la couleur qui nous permet d'en profiter... Et tes portraîts sont d'une grande délicatesse. Merci.
Un "cousin" admiratif.

Your photos have left an impression on me and that's a rare thing.
Guest 05-Mar-2007 21:07
You are an artist of the highest calibre. You will make great images whether with a pinhole camera or a $8000 D3x, because you have vision and you have taste. I followed a link from dpreview and ended up spending over an hour on your site. Stunning.
Scotty Battistoni -SO Photography03-Mar-2007 22:30
You have some absolutely stunning photos on your webpages. Makes me want to throw away all of my equipment and find a new hobby as my photos pale in comparison.
Excellent work.

Guest 21-Feb-2006 20:22
Yves, thank you the comment you left for me last week. I appreciated it all the more when I toured through your gallery, and saw the quality of your photography. Strong contrasts, rich colours, well considered compositions -- "bold" is how I would describe your photographs. I have added you to my favourites, and will be back ...

Guest 31-Dec-2005 15:34

Angels in Paradise...

Yves, I have long admired your excellent work here at pbase and on the forums at dpreview. It would be hard to pick one, but your Angels in Paradise is superb. I left comments attached to the image as well.

Hi Robert, the way to write the © sign is the following:

Hold the ALT and type on the keypad 0169 then release everything you have this sign "©"

For the frame, it is a photoshop action.
Robert 03-Feb-2005 20:33
Hi Yves!
Been looking and admiring your photos. Great work!!! Btw, I've been meaning to learn how to put copyright info on the border of the picture. Can you give me some web link or pointers about it? Is it done thru Photoshop CS? Thanks for your reply!!!
Naturephoto Monique13-Jan-2005 00:20
Yves, your work is beautiful, excellent pictures!

Guest 28-Dec-2004 16:27
I believe I contacted you last December or the year before as an admirer of your work. Recently I have purchased a D70 (wanted a D2H but a little pricy for me) and I have been enjoying this new camera. Next purchase is a lens.

I have joined this community as was again surprised to see your great work.

Keep up the good work. Being a Dad is a lot of fun and it is obvious that this is very important to you.

Keep sharing with us less gifted. We all appreciate the talent you bring to the internet.

Best wishes for 2005 to you and your family.

Tu es vraiment génial.

Félicitations pour ton excellent travail et ton sens créatif.
Francois 10-Apr-2004 07:36
Bravo. Je suis vraiment sous le charme.

Je suis tombé par hasard sur tes photos (dpreview-> D70 -> forums -> yp8) et là je me demande comment prendre des cours.
j'ai apprécié plus particulièrement tes paysages et c'est vraiment conforme au Canada que je rêve d'aller voir, d'aller visiter (tu dois avoir qqes stock options dans l'office du tourisme Canadien et du Quebec :) ).
Fais tu beaucoup de retouches avec Photoshop?
J'espère que tu pourras me faire suivre tes prochains clichés.

Un francais qui attends de voir la continuité de ton oeuvre.
Merci encore.

Charlie McCartney 09-Apr-2004 19:24

Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed a look around your images. They are superb.
As a relatively new D100 owner I appreciate your contributions to the Nikon forum and
I'm intrigued at your new postings following your recent upgrade of equipment.

Again, many thanks............ keep the postings coming.

Regards from Bonnie Scotland
Scott McCollum 05-Apr-2004 02:57
Hey Yves,
I have been admiring your work for some time now. I have had a D100 for approximately 6 months and have been investigating several different post processing techniques. Ron Resnick is the latest. However, I always come back to your work. Could you provide some guidance as to what processing techniques you use? I would be most grateful.

Thanks so much,
Scott McCollum
