Nice portfolio

Pierre -- thank you for stopping by my gallery and giving ratings on some of my photos. It is nice that a few folks are willing to do so without being anonymous.

You have a nice portfolio -- exactly the kind of work that I am pretty bad at myself. I'll definately stop by from time to time to check it out. Thanks again.

Pierre Dumas , May 20, 2006; 02:06 P.M.


This must be some kind of my signature

Chuck, I appreciate Your gentle & modest support. If there's anything I do better than you do, suit yourself, ask me to help you solve the problem fastest as can be

Larry Darnell , May 23, 2006; 11:08 P.M.

Thanks for leaving a rating, as I might not have seen your portfolio otherwise. I've marked you as 'interesting' as I intend to come back and spend time here. Your work is amusing, intriguing, grim and demonstrates an excellent eye, with much greater than average conceptual joining of images and masterful technique.

My hat's off to you!

Eddie K , May 24, 2006; 06:06 P.M.

Thank you

Pierre, Thank you for your confidence. A 6/6 rating you gave me is very much appreciated. I just looked at your portfolio. Nice photos, especially the collages. I cannot help but think of your work as moving animations. I'll stop by often. Thanks, Eddie

Janie Barber , May 25, 2006; 12:12 P.M.


Pierre, you have such a creative eye for unusual shots! These photos in my humble opinion puts you in a class of your own. Thanks for your rating on my Hwy 49 Farm, color shot. As you can see, I don't shoot much color as I have a romance going on with b/w. Having experienced the 50's era and the fact that I love antiques and nostalgia, makes me partial to the b/w. Thanks again!

Donibane Sanjuan , May 29, 2006; 06:15 A.M.

Well done

Hi Pierre. You have a unique style... strong and directly. It is interesting how you manipulated some photos. Congratulations ;-)

Zoran Kostic , May 29, 2006; 03:57 P.M.

Great ideas, great photos! Well seen & captured. Cheers! Zoran

Pierre Dumas , June 13, 2006; 06:49 A.M.

Kevin, you made my day!

Not that I didn't know the facts you exposed here, but the fact that YOU did it. I really meant what I said about your spring landscape. I'm going to see your other pictures as soon as possible. Thank you very much for your support!

marc barbu , June 19, 2006; 10:39 P.M.

Curiosity killed the cat :) I was curious to see some of your work, and I'm overwelmed by your imagination. Don't ever stop playng kid :)

Pierre Dumas , June 20, 2006; 12:43 A.M.


...by your clever comment Barbu! I was on some psychological testing yesterday and there was a question do I want to be kid again. I said YES, YES, YES! I will never stop playing, I promise!

Pierre, you have a very exiting and creative portfolio. I wanted to comment on just one photo, but there are so many fabulous ones, I decided to tell you here. Well done! :)

Pierre Dumas , June 23, 2006; 10:08 P.M.

Thank you Baerbel!

I appreciate your support very much. As I don't remember you it must be that I haven't seen your portfolio. I'll fix it right now!

I did it and you know what would be my comment?! Copy paste of your comment here! Ha! I mean it, seriously!

Jim Downs , June 25, 2006; 04:12 A.M.

You have an exceptional talent for Abstracts, a genre that totally eludes my skill set! Thanks for comments on a couple of my photos.

Susan Wolfe , June 25, 2006; 12:06 P.M.

Excellent portfolio. I will try to learn from your abstracts. I especially like your portraits because they are real.

Denise L , June 26, 2006; 02:30 A.M.


Pierre. Thank's for rating my photo Suspended Petal. I'm motivated by what I see through my lens but need encouragement and critiques as well. Your portfolio shows a unique vision- artistic, technically savvy, and highly individualistic. Not so caught up with "pretty". Inspiring and for me a reminder to follow my own path. Regards. Denise.

Larry Darnell , June 26, 2006; 08:42 P.M.

aha - you have let la chat evantar la liebre

So, votre intellect is plus afilado et grande as indiziato.

Vous etes le maestro avec le plus grand chapeau comunista - oh bien, mi weenie sombrette, je te d飯iffe comme le Amerikan borghese convenzionale servile je suis - et yet -

Si, May I tu to extend an invitation?

Je ne sais pas ou allez-vous, or where dove vive, mais, Je voudrias incontrare whenever our paths might cross - or si vous faire un visite ici, California...oppure quand I am suertudo to visit near you.

Contrary to comic media/press, not tous les Californians/Americans are xenophobe gli individui grassi correndo intorno ama gli idioti, maybe more so than elsewhere, but not all. Ici, il y a massa di lugar secreto, but don't tell anyone - or they'll all come here.

Cordially, votre amigo, El Lorenzo de Barbacoa San Lorenzo Valley, California

Pierre Dumas , June 26, 2006; 10:11 P.M.

Hey, Amico mio! My sombrero is off!

Me preguntaba quien rompera el silencio que es generalmente esperar despues de mi verbal, y no solo la exposicion verbal. Usted ha ganado el premio, EL Lorenzo Grande.

Gracias mucho, mi amigo. Para su invitacion buena, significo. Monta generalmente una bicicleta qui no puede, alas, nadada. Pero, prometo venir tan pronto como lo enseno a nadar.

Hey, por que ponga no que usted me envia para decir la cosa secreta?!

Aclamaciones a eso todas!

I hope I didn't mess with my Spanish!

Francisco Díaz , June 27, 2006; 05:51 A.M.


Hola, Pierre. Gracias por tu comentario. Visito con frecuencia tu p᧩na y pienso que tienes una visi�n muy personal que hace de tus fotos una hermosa experiencia. Enhorabuena. Me sorprende la curiosa mezcla de lenguas que se produce en los comentarios, una especie de lengua franca. Salut.

Ebru Namli , June 27, 2006; 08:29 A.M.

Excellent compositions and wonderful colors. Your gallery is full of color and good compositions. Thank you for sharing. ebru... :)

Pierre Dumas , June 27, 2006; 03:08 P.M.

Por Francisco & Ebru

Francisco, gracias por venir aqui! Vi que los muchos de sus fotografias y mi pueden felicitarle! Veale pronto en su terreno!

Thank you for your kindness Ebru! I clicked on your name and saw much better photographs than the one I rated today! I'll come to your portfolio soon. I liked the Ravanija very much!

Denise L , June 29, 2006; 02:14 A.M.


Hi Pierre, thank you for taking time to look at my photos and analyzing what might make them work better. I was in love with the colors and could have paid more attention to the composition. I'm just learning my way around P.S. and will try framing.It's very helpful to be critiqued- I'm looking at my photos in a different way. Regards. Denise.

surya fajri , July 02, 2006; 03:46 A.M.

Nice portfolio Pierre..keep a good work my friend..:) You left comment in my image just say thanks you and what is that for..just wanna know..hehehe



Pierre Dumas , July 02, 2006; 03:30 P.M.

Hey, SURYA! Welcome to my... whatever!

The word was: If you want to know - mail me! You didn't mail me, so the conclusion must be that you don't want to know! He, he, he, it is! The thing is of a rather subtle character.

Hey, you have "almost an interesting portfolio" there. I was just around the close-ups which happen to be worst of all your pictures. But I just had a reason to explore only the close-ups. There are still interesting and nice ones. The best one of them, the spider was rated the worst. It is seemengly a sacred rule of the sacred secret CIA department for kidding all the way to the ARMAGEDDON! Don't tell anyone!

If you would like to know everything about those secret and sacred things, which I don't, mail me! Ha, ha, ha!

Hey, friend, mail me anyway! Thank you for comming here, I appreaciate it very much. See you soon at your place!


Pierre Dumas , July 04, 2006; 01:24 P.M.


Sorry this welcome has been replaced. I don't know why, the Seal of My Majesty wouldn't appear. Just a place with a cross. Not the Christian one, but the error one. Since perfectionism is my second name I couldn't leave it that way and I had to delete the whole thing and rewrite it!

That's all! I don't want to rewrite again!

Come some time! You are always welcome!

Chris Allsebrook , July 10, 2006; 05:46 A.M.

Pierre you are an Artist.

Best regards Chris

Pierre Dumas , July 10, 2006; 04:30 P.M.

Ladies & Gentlemen click on Chris Allsebrook to see WHO is saying I'm an artist!

Nobody knows how much more is in this bag!

Hey Chris, what's new? That I am an artist, genious & a madman isn't some big news!

I am honored by your words, Chris! Keep telling me that, please!

Giuliano Boiti , July 11, 2006; 02:16 A.M.

very interesting portfolio, I like Pets & Kids...thank you for the comment !!!

Rejith Warrier , July 11, 2006; 05:14 A.M.

I think your portfolio is alive, friend Pierre .. Every time I come back, it has grown a few inches more and is a lot more beautiful :o) ... Nice and inspirational works ... Congradulations ..

Jon Kelly , July 11, 2006; 03:32 P.M.

Thank you for your comments and for reviewing my portfolio. Your opinion means a lot to me all the more that I saw your excellent photos here. I am just a beginner, so to say. I particularly like your close-ups and your portraits. Keep up the good job.

Yann Roffiaen , July 11, 2006; 11:01 P.M.

Thanks for your time to comment my picture. Very interesting and impressive photos you have there. Regards

Pierre Dumas , July 11, 2006; 11:01 P.M.

Giuliano, Rejith, Dimi & Yann!

Welcome aboard my dear friends! I thank you sincerely for coming to my home!

Rejith, in your honor I uploaded seven more pictures, a choice with utmost versatility, especially to satisfy your taste! Enjoy them my brother!

Cheers to our friendship & brotherhood!

Brett Brandon , July 12, 2006; 10:29 A.M.

Thank you Pierre

You have an outstanding portfolio. Not only are the photos amazing, but the reworking of some of them reveal a very artistic eye. I appreciate your comments on my flower. I do think the rework was a little over sharpened. I try not to sharpen much as it seems to add noise to the picture. It was cropped out of a larger picture instead of taking a closer shot. As far as focus, I don't know if its me or the camera that won't quite focus perfect. I usually use the autofocus and have the camera on a tripod. My camera is a Fuji Finepix S9000. It's not a pro camera and I am wondering if that's got anything to do with the focus issue. You said if I had any questions feel free.... So I'm picking your brain. If you have a suggestion on what camera would be high quality but affordable for a beginner like me, let me know. Thanks again for your knowledge, comments, and of course your exellent photos... Brett Brandon

philip gleeson , July 12, 2006; 03:04 P.M.

Hello there

After looking at your folio, i'm very impressed that you gave me a 6/6, Thanks. I think its interesting that you have so many hits on your folio after such a small space of time maybe you staying up til 3 or 4am has something to do with it. Do you rate a lot of photos? - is this the reason people then return the compliment? I have found feed back very hard to get. I never rate photos unless they are very good or very bad (in my opinion)i'll critique them, i think this is more useful to photographers. I'm new at this so maybe i'm wrong. Its good that you don't rate anonymously. Cheers and thanks again :-)

Pierre Dumas , July 12, 2006; 05:56 P.M.

Brett & Philip, welcome my friends!

There are some questions in your comments and as a practical man I will take the liberty to mail each of you and answer the questions!

Thank you for coming, hope we are going to develop a good cooperative relationship!

I forgot to say something about the picture uploaded by Brett: It's better than mine, it's quite as it should be. I just stick to my remark about the frames that were used on the originally exposed sample. No frames at all is better!

Phillip: I think that a member of this community with my membership status can't rate anonimously. I haven't noticed that option by now. And I wouldn't use it because people may sometime ask what's been your reason for rating low or high or whatever. They have the right to know. The comment is much more important and valuable, but in this world of competition there must be rating, too. I don't approve competition in the arts. I believe that art is something God All Mighty gives us. Competition in that area would sound like: Hey, look what God made me do! Aaaa, it's nothing compared to what He made ME do! Look, I stand better with God than you do!

Isn't it ridiculous?!

Cheers to that!

Marty Brodell , July 14, 2006; 09:11 P.M.


Pierre, thanks for taking the time to rate my photo "Recording". I just checked out your portfolio and it is one of the best and most varied I've seen. I also appreciate you honesty in your comments and in your ratings. Thanks again and ...GREAT PHOTOS! All the Best- Marty Brodell

Pierre Dumas , July 15, 2006; 12:19 A.M.

Nice to meet you Marty!

To tell the truth, your picture I rated this night is nothing comparing to your other pictures and good that you came here, otherwise I would've missed such a beauty as your portfolio SURE is!

Your compliment about mine, although surely exagerated is a most welcome comfort to me, now when I'm about going to bed!

Thank you very much my friend & keep in touch!

Martin Karlsson , July 15, 2006; 05:11 A.M.

Kat Seymour , August 07, 2006; 05:07 A.M.

Thank you for taking the time to rate my photo, it gets my spirits up that someone of your calibur thinks I did a good job. I just picked up a camera a little over two months ago and I hope to someday reach the calibur of people like you. Your pictures are beautiful. Again, thank you.

Flavio Lo Scalzo , August 07, 2006; 06:46 A.M.

Ciao Pierre

Thank you for giving ratings on some of my photos. You have a great portfolio. I like so much close-ups photos above all. Congratulations! Cheers, Flavio

Umapathy C , August 10, 2006; 01:34 A.M.

Hi pierre, i was a bit busy with my ad agency. sorry,

till today, when ever i post something, i dont feel 100% confident, there used to be a frustration about my camera, or that i couldn't spend quality time, in the shots and stuff like that. and actually speaking, i just have some 12 - 15 pictures that i am happy about, in my portfolio. The rest all i need to replace, once i get a decent photos. that is the reason i dont post often, i question myself atleast twice before i post it. and after posting, i used to think that i shouldn't have :-).

thanks a lot for your comment pierre, your portfolio is a amazing, and you have a great talent in architecture, i loved your "URBAN & RURAL STUFF"

i felt really overjoyed to hear that a friend is there waiting to see my shots. thank you, thanks a lot.

recently posted 4 more shots...

Tanya Gramatikova , August 11, 2006; 08:41 A.M.


You needn't envy,Pierre-you're AS good as you must be-great gallery! ...:)


Vítor Cid , August 11, 2006; 10:29 A.M.

Very nice portfolio, Pierre.

Mirko Gherpelli , August 12, 2006; 09:26 A.M.


Thanks for you rating, i saw your portfolio and it's one of the most original portfolio i've ever seen, very good work!

Marek Dziekonski , August 12, 2006; 09:01 P.M.

Hi Pierre,

You have very original portfolio here. I enjoy your work a lot and find it inspiring how your approach differs from mine. This is really great thing about photo.net, the variety! For those that will to grow (such as myself) it helps open mind and seek alternative approach to show what (very often) has already been shown. Best regards!

P.S. Thanks for commenting on my photo!

Paulo Riskas , August 15, 2006; 03:06 P.M.

Great portfolio.You are a pro,so i only can rate 7/7.Show us more.

Pierre Dumas , August 16, 2006; 04:28 P.M.

Martin, Ahmed, Anthony, Julius, Mario, Iva, Jason, Marco, John, Mohamad, Kat, Flavio, Umapathy, Tanya, Vitor, Mirko, Marek and Paulo

Thank you all very much for your visit and your comments. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! There is only one reason why I waited so long to speak up - I noticed that this page contains 16 my comments and they are, alas, larger than all the others. So I decided to restrain from commenting, it wasn't an easy task, but I had to play some modesty blues, ha!

Thank you, thank you all for the so precious to me support!

Paulo, alas, I can't show you more, I'm already far above the limit and I have to comment and to comment and to rate and to request critique, and to comment and to rate again...and hope that some day I will earn what I was already allowed to show. By the way, thanks for calling me a pro, it's been a pleasure for my eyes and my ears (I read it to myself ten times a day, ha!)

Cheers to that!

Hamada Bourini , August 16, 2006; 08:27 P.M.


Great Work, Simply Genius. I wonder if you could give me some lessons :)

Roy in't Hout , August 17, 2006; 01:05 A.M.


Hello Pierre. Looking at your portfolio I recognised some images I had seen before. Now I can put a face to them. Your work is inspiring, bright, colourful, exciting and many other things. It is photographers like yourself that have inspired me to try things I have never done before. Abstract and buildings. I had the pleasure of spending some time in Bendigo. A favourite place of mine photographing buildings. I believe you rated one of these and it was that, that bought me to your site. How fortunate for me. I look forward to a wonderful friendship. Best wishes and cheers.

Pierre Dumas , August 17, 2006; 03:23 A.M.

Hamada & Roy, my dear friends!

I'm answering in order of appearance, ha!

Hamada, I remember I've rated two of your colorful action photographs. I only once in my life photographed sport, some motocross racing. It was a long time ago. I only have one of the beautiful photos I made then, alas. I was shooting with 1/15 sec. and tracking the racers. The photographs reminded of masked riders, blurred as I intended to be, just a little bit, just to look like paintings and the background blurred all the way, of course. I gave them to a fellow from Canada to try to sell them. They were on slides. I never saw them again. If there's anything I can "teach" you, I will do it with pleasure. Just mail me!

Roy, I remember your photos. Your latest, the organ is a 7/7 one! But it is not ratable for the time being. Yes, I was doing some architecture photographs before and I like it very much. Ruined, good old houses are still my favorite. If I only lived in Portugal or Spain or somewhere in Latin America...My last "photo trip" was to my town's old bazaar and here are some of those pictures I took then. I had to erase all those cables, columns and air conditioners in order to try to return them to their original look.

Thank you both for your support and keep in touch!

Serena R , August 17, 2006; 11:30 A.M.


Thank you Pierre for your comment on my photo of Bastia. I'll wait for news from you! serena P.S. Ypur portfolio is full of great ideas! Thank you for sharing.

Pierre Dumas , August 17, 2006; 05:39 P.M.

Serena, thank you for coming to my house (it's been rented, though)

I finally did what I promised you. I must say that your pictures are promising. I can hardly wait for more of that Italian mood of the passed times.

You're saying my portfolio is full of ideas. Thank you for your amiable and encouraging gesture. I only thought I had even some realisations of these ideas, too, ha!

Cheers to that!

Serena R , August 18, 2006; 10:24 A.M.


Thank you for your suggest... See you at the next shot! Bye. Serena

Tony Bijeaux , August 18, 2006; 11:42 P.M.

Anders Hingel , August 20, 2006; 05:04 A.M.

timothy prospero , August 20, 2006; 07:49 A.M.

HI Pierre

I see your pictures very interesting i like @ all! thank you to spend time to comment my butterfly pic!

Richard Karas , August 22, 2006; 07:48 P.M.


Thanks for your comment on NIGHT GAME really appreciate it. After perusing your portfolio I can see you have quite a photographic game yourself. Some really fascinating, attractive and creative abstracts. Quite a talent you are, you are. I would be interested in seeing the image you pointed out, what is the title and theme? You also seem to be quite a gentleman, I apprecite that as well. Beautiful work Pierre. rek

Pierre Dumas , August 22, 2006; 10:39 P.M.

Alas, Richard, you asked a question and answered it yourself!

The picture I pointed to is about all the real gentlemen of all times. The ones who don't care about "the rain", and remain gentlemen at all times!

"I cavalieri della pioggia" is the caption of that picture!

Thank you for your comment, I appreciate it very much!

Cheers to that my friend!

Omar Martinez , August 27, 2006; 02:52 A.M.

Hi Pierre

You don't need any more congratulations. Just count me in. A real pleasure to browse your inspiring portfolio. Cheers

Robert Woodward , September 07, 2006; 10:36 P.M.


Thank you for your comments on my photos. We share an interest in abstracts, but yours are works of art. Your talent in processing and creative compositing is significant. I will watch with great interest for your next postings.

Kathy Brown , September 07, 2006; 10:41 P.M.


I removed my first comment because I felt it was not well written so I will try again to say what I feel. I consider the discovery of your fascinating and thought provoking art a great gift and a most welcome one. You are truly an artist and a wonderful part of the PN community. Considering the long list of admiring comments your personality and works have generated, I am in good company with this feeling!


Christopher Harris , September 08, 2006; 12:30 P.M.

Bravo, My Friend!

Pierre, you are a true inspiration to us all! I love your images in your portfolio. The faces of the animals in the 'Pets & Kids' are simply fantastic! I really love the techniques you've developed in your abstract photos. Very, very unique and satisfying. I plan on visiting your portfolio often to stay abreast with the way that you see the world. I also appreciate the comments and thoughts that you've provided on some of my images. It is the feedback from PN members like you that keep me out there snapping images with my camera. Best Regards, Chris

Please do visit my portfolio again & give your valuable suggestions which will help a lot a beginner like me. Thanks once again

Pierre :-)

Cher Pierre j'avais employ? Photostyler 2.0 pour plus de 10 ans et ce que j'ai appris est cette photographie est vrai quand est intact. Vous ?s cependant un grand photographe, se cacher derri? des programmes de Photoshop. M? puis cependant, votre art est Dali-comme mais pourtant quelque chose de nouveau. Je ne suis pas le seul que j'ai dit cela et je vois ceci maintenant.

Chaque eloge et honneur est bien meritte a toi

Salute! :-)

Pierre Dumas , September 11, 2006; 12:44 P.M.

Thank you my dear friends, for your encouraging and supporting critiques!

I didn't answer each one of you only because I didn't want to "do comments" on my own portfolio, it may look tasteless or pretentious or whatever.

But, since here appeared my superior officer who seems to have forgotten to speak English I must answer him in the same language and manner! It's a good manner, believe you me!

Cheers to you all, my dear friends!

Salut, mon Colonel!

Je ne sais pas pourquoi vous avez employee francais, peut etre quelque chose avec mon mauvais anglais? Cependant, je vais vous repondre avec memes langue et facon: Merci, grand photographe, pour me dire que je cache mon grand artisme photographique derriere le Photoshop, mais je vais vous dire ceci: Je cache, meilleur - masque ma insignifiance photographique avec l'habile, je dois admettre, manoeuvrant avec le Photoshop! Merci pour votre bonte et attitude aimable envers votre subordonne, mon Colonel!

Je bois cette verre pour Votre sante, mon Colonel!

P.S. The accents are gone due to my ignorance to manage for them to show as they should in this browser!

Cheers to that!

Long live gibanica!

My dear Pierre, I really enjoyed the humour and messages you`ve been sending in your photos. And not only that: the processing is highly proffesional - perfect. These are photos for looking, but above all - for thinking. Thanks for warning us about the things we don`t notice, or don`t want to notice.

Kakvo je to iznenadjenje bilo!!! Naravno da sam rado pogledala tvoje slike, ali na zalost ja sam pocetnik u fotografiji, i moje misljenje se malo vazi. Ali evo kako ja dozivljavam pomenutu fotografiju: kao rat komercijalizaciji. Mozda nisam shvatila poruku, ali eto to je moje misljanje. Sto se tice izvedbe, odlicno je zamisljeno-plava, hladna boja pristaje, jer je manje vise takav svet oko nas (meni nije kad se najedem gibanice)...Ochi? Zasto ochi? Jer ne zelimo da vidimo ili nam drugi namecu pogled na svet-prodaju oci. Led-sve je manje osecanja. Javi ako sam bar malo shvatila poruku.

Sto se ocenjivanja tice, po mom misljenju daleko je iznad proseka, al na zalost ima raznih ljudi koji vise rade da uniste druge nego da unaprede sebe. Samo napred!

Inace, hvala na tvom savetu, kao sto rekoh da sam pocetnik, i svaki savet je vise nego dobrodosao, a posebno od iskusnijih i boljih od mene.

Drago mi je da smo se upoznali.

Pozdrav Sandra. (Pera Zdera)

Pierre Dumas , September 15, 2006; 08:58 P.M.

Long live Gibanica, a bogami i Pita Pastrmalija!

You are making an old man very happy Pera! Thank you for your amiable praises of my portfolio, I like to be praised! It is just my egocentric ism, nothing else! It may be sinful, but what can I do against it! I now forgot what you said in English and must pass on the other part!

Sandra, ti si videla mnogo vishe u toj mojoj slici nego ja! Razume se da si dobro razumela poruku, moje poruke su jasne i eksplicitne, ali sav taj simbolizam...ja moram da ti priznam, kao ljubitelj istine iznad svega, da ja nisam to sve predvideo...meni tako ispada sve uklopljeno, a nikad ne razmishljam o tome shta ccu sve upotrebiti i shta cce to znachiti. Radio sam neke slike samo po nekom estetskom nagonu, uopshte ne razmishljajucci o tome da im apliciram neku poruku. Kad sam ih kasnije gledao - video sam da je u njima moj zhivot, sasvim eksplicitno i nedvosmishljeno prikazan!

Da, ti kazhesh da si pochetnik i ja ti to verujem, ali tvoje mishljenje mora da se vazhi, jer si pokazala veliku pronicljivost time shto si videla chak i to shto ja nisam (na mojoj slici, bruka)!

Meni je isto tako drago da smo se upoznali moj lepi Pera, ha!

Cheers to that & keep in touch!

Roberto Roseano , September 16, 2006; 08:57 A.M.

Thanks for your comments to my "Tortured Vegetable". I have not found anything alike in your portfolio, but I have found a portfolio rich of fantasy and imagination. Bravo. mandi, Roberto

Teresa Zafon , September 16, 2006; 10:32 A.M.

Thank you Pierre,

for your comment on my picture. It is an honour coming from one who has a fantastic portfolio like yours. Really interesting and creative work. I specially love your abstract and less abastract folders. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us. I will be back periodically to see what you have posted. Cheers.

Pierre Dumas , September 16, 2006; 01:27 P.M.

The Honour is all mine, my dear Lady!

Teresa, my dear friend, I clicked on your name to see "whom I'm honouring with my comments" and on the three thumbnails saw the vice versa! Not to mention the rest of your wonderful portfolio!

Thank you my dear lady!

Pierre Dumas , September 16, 2006; 01:31 P.M.

Thank you Roberto, I didn't forget you, ladies first, you know!

I appreciate very much your positive comment. The remark about the similarity of some of my pictures was about the technique - unaltered pictures combined in different montages!

Thank you for your kind support!

Gerardo Llaneza , September 18, 2006; 06:50 A.M.

My dear friend:

In this portfolio there is a game of subtle ideas and an acid point that it enchants to me, because you force others to leave of side some "hipocresia".

:) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Pierre Dumas , September 18, 2006; 10:45 A.M.

The truth above all, my friend!

I'm happy to see you here my dear friend and like your comment because it shows that you, and not only you, understand my messages and ACCEPT THEM! I could also be a photographer of "the beautiful" and just that! It isn't time for that, especially for me. I live in such a criminal and corrupted country run by crooks and imbeciles, that I have a duty to search for & show the truth. I have a duty towards my people, my family, the future generations. And after all, I want to leave something behind me...

Cheers to that my friend!

Pavle Pekovic , September 19, 2006; 06:12 A.M.

Umes neobicno da vidis i umes da prepricas fotografijom drugima to tvoje neobicno. Super je.

Pierre Dumas , September 21, 2006; 09:42 P.M.

Hvala Pavle, moj prijatelju!

Lepo si to rekao, dao ti Bog svako dobro! Evo, prvog dobra: Sad idem kod tebe, ha!

Nazdravimo tome!

Hugh Miley , September 23, 2006; 02:09 A.M.

Fantastic Stuff Pierre. At first I was pleased that someone had taken some time to comment on my photo. Now that I have seen your portfolio, I am really humbled and honoured.

Pierre Dumas , September 23, 2006; 05:01 A.M.

Hugh, my friend, your exaggeration is such a music to my vain ears!

What a music, what a song!

I saw your whole portfolio, commented and rated some pictures, and rated well because they deserved it!

Thanks for the "pleasant music for my vanity"!

Cheers to that, of course!


Pedro de Luisa , September 23, 2006; 04:43 P.M.


Muchas gracias (thanks a lot) for your comment on my spyder picture, I am very honoured. I know your portfolio several months ago, and can only say that it is MAGNIFICO. Saludos, Pedro.

Pierre Dumas , September 23, 2006; 08:20 P.M.

Hola Pedro, mi amigo!

Por que usted traduce? Usted piensa que no hablo espanol? No hablo chino y japones! Gracias por "ser honrado"! YO SOY el MUY honrado!

Gracias mi amigo por el comentario magnifico!

Cheers to that, Pedro, my namesake!

Shawn Callahan , September 25, 2006; 01:21 P.M.

Very well done!

I love the diversity of your portfolio and that all genres are executed and presented nicely. There is a lot of artistic talent running through your veins. Thanks for sharing.

Kolby Cole , September 25, 2006; 03:23 P.M.

What to say, nothing but, stupendous, magnificant, and how'd he do that :) Beautiful in all regards, your comments are welcome to my humble abode anytime. Cole

Anthony McAvoy , September 26, 2006; 07:25 A.M.

G'day Pierre

Thankyou for your comments and suggestions regarding my portfolio. I will include camera data on my posts from now on as it was only last night that I learned something from somebody elses data. I really enjoyed looking at your galleries, you certainly have an artistic flair with your abstract photography. I will explore this area more when my PS skills have developed. Most of all I see that you love life, art and photography! Many Thanks...AMc.

Ettore Marzocchi , September 27, 2006; 03:01 A.M.

Hi Pierre! Thank you for your rating on my photos! I did look at your portfolio. I found many many interesting images and insiprations. Thank you again! ettoremarzocchi.com

Kolby Cole , September 27, 2006; 06:45 P.M.

You have some unbeilable images, you are one creative person:) I can't seem to pick a favorite, the little girl in the stripped suit, or the apples... I keep looking, if you keep shooting.. Thanks for sharing your creativeness with us all... COLE

Julia Gol , September 30, 2006; 09:15 P.M.


Wow... You work is phenomenal... I think I should learrn a lot from you, especailly the abstract photos.

Thank you so much for sharing your work woth us.

Justin L. Smith , October 03, 2006; 09:58 P.M.

Hey Pierre

I actually did rate one of your Atanasko photo a 6/7 so I dont know why it show up ... I checked your biography out and your biography picture is absolutely hilarious. Great stuff. Thx for your recognition of the White Sands Sherlter pic. I'f you're ever in the Detroit Michigan area, drop me an email ... you seem like the type that'd be fun to shoot the you know what with. have a good one sir!

Ted Gorczyca , October 05, 2006; 07:13 P.M.

great portfolio, really nice colors and detail that show off your beautiful work, nice job. thanks for rating one of my photos

Kausik Chakraborty , October 08, 2006; 04:48 P.M.


Hi dumas! Just had the time to see ur folio.. will come back again to say more. I have also tried a variation with background but with water reflections it would be an honor if u had time to comment on it.


Giuliano Boiti , October 10, 2006; 03:00 A.M.

very interesting !!! congrats and regards !

Kirill Trifonov , October 11, 2006; 01:23 A.M.

Exelent portfolio

Hi Pierre

The fotos with Googy seemse very nice for me. I and my wife have some lizards at home, it's our favorite pets ;) I like your sense of humour about ratings, quite truly ;)

Will be wating of your new works.

Dominick Clos , October 16, 2006; 06:11 P.M.

Great, creative and original... A master in post processing and other PSP.

So different of what we are used to see...

Refreshing!!! Great, great great work!!! Congratulations! Keep posting!!!!! Thank you for sharing...

mike mike , October 17, 2006; 11:31 A.M.

From Greece Mr. M

Hi from Greece dear Pierre, I studied very carefully your portfolio here and your style, I can say for sure that even your computer manipulated pictures are pure pictures, in a kind of thinking about that. Any way, I find you very original as a person, and photographer, I read your bio, and I like person that speak clear like you, few true words. And true pictures, exactly the style that I am looking for myself also, thank you very much for visiting and rating my pictures. Mr. M

Jan Kooreman , October 22, 2006; 03:51 A.M.


In your comment on my mushroom shot you invited me to have a look at one of your shots. As usual I always look at the portfolio's of people who take the time to comment on my shots. I must say that the shot "Secret Connection" doesn't do it for me. My way of viewing abstract shots is that it should raise a feeling of emotion and/or passion in me and/or that it should contain some element that does that. A lot of your other shots do that very well. To name a few examples: Iva, KING C2H50H, Blue & Yellow Garnished With Black, The New Light Bearer and many more.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment on my shot.

Greetings, Jan

mike mike , October 28, 2006; 07:25 A.M.

Thanks From Mr M.

Dear Pierre you don't know how happy you made me with your comments and your work on my "STEPHANIE 2", picture, this doll is from my mother's collection she likes to rebuild old dolls useless for kids anymore, I have seen this need for the correction that you made, but once in the past, I had posted this picture for rating and I was totally disappointed by the ratings, although I love this picture...Thank you again friend...

Christopher Harris , October 30, 2006; 11:07 P.M.

Pierre, You are Fan-tas-tic!

Pierre, I love visiting your portfolio, it makes me happy! And I loved running into your photo of 'Beware of Torfinn.' What a great image! Keep up the good work, my friend, you have some real talent and a great eye for the world that we live in. Keep on snapping away, and in the words of my California Governor..."I'll be Baaack..." Best Regards, Chris

Sylvie Bélanger , November 12, 2006; 10:06 A.M.

Fascinating !

Hi Pierre ! First, i want to thank you for making a comment on my portfolio, I really appreciate ... I took your suggestion and change the title of my photo (Cotton instead of Powder... you were right .. I feld that Powder was not exact but didn't find the right word .. Thank you for your precious suggestion). About your Portfolio .. .. It is just "amazing" ... You'r a genious .. Very very original photos .. Great colors and composition .. I love every section of it .. Congratulations Pierre !! Best Regards ... Sylvie

Greg Hegman , November 12, 2006; 01:30 P.M.

Interesting Portfolio

Pierre, You have used your photography skills and taken it to the next level, combining photography with art. Enjoyed looking at your portfolio, and will visit it in the future. Thanks for taking the time to comment on some photos of mine. Greg Hegman

Christopher Harris , November 12, 2006; 06:58 P.M.

Pierre, mon ami, cheers! Just wanted you to know that I checked out your re-vamped portfolio on-line while I'm out on the road. I have been in southern Arizona in Saguaro National Park and in southern California in Joshua Tree National Park since November 7th. I love the look of your new portfolio, especially the "Dry Googy" folder. Great stuff and well done, Amigo! I'll e-mail you on Tuesday when back home. Best regards, Chris

Gorka Regidor , November 12, 2006; 08:05 P.M.

Hi Pierre, my friend! You've rended me speechless. Keep going.

Silvio D'Amico , November 13, 2006; 04:24 P.M.


No words! Great portfolio! Ciao, Silvio

Joao Borges , November 20, 2006; 05:55 A.M.

Hi Pierre, Thanks for your comment on my photo. Really it can not be compaired with your work, as an abstract. It is only a detail of an Algarve farmer typical horse wagon, still in use (rarelly, now a days)...not medieval. As for your portfolio, I liked it very much, and will be back to give it more attention. Regards Joao Borges

Reza Motaghedi , November 20, 2006; 10:55 A.M.

Pierre Thank you for your comment. I find your protfolio stunning.

Barry Denton , November 22, 2006; 06:56 P.M.


Geez Pierre, you have some great stuff. Every once in awhile I'm going to drop by here and gawk a little. Your photos are very pleasing to the eye. Thanks for your comments on mine and keep at it!

Tony Tsantes , November 22, 2006; 08:42 P.M.

Very nice and interesting portfolio. Also, thank you for the advice.

Oana Soroaga , November 23, 2006; 10:16 A.M.


I love your portofolio. I think you have good knowlidge on how to process an image. I try to transform the image of the reality captured in the camera into what I see in it. I'm at the beggining and only sometimes I succeed. But I'm trying to improove. Seeing your portofolio gives me hope in that we can create a more beautiful world based on the reality. I think creating is the purpose of art.

Best wishes, Oana.

Tamás Vízi , November 27, 2006; 01:21 P.M.

Dear Mr. Dumas! Thank you for looking at my photos and giving me valuable advice. Your comments are mostly welcome as well as anyone else's. I am very grateful, thank you again for spending time on my photos. I value it very highly because it comes from an artist such as you. I will post some new photos with the changes you suggested. I am a bit preoccupied with something else, I will not be able to do those changes soon, but will tell you as soon as possible. I wish you all the best, hope you will visit my portofolio again and help me with your advice. Regards, Mate Pentek

Rejith Warrier , December 12, 2006; 04:44 A.M.

Well well well ... Look who is on the front page of photo.net ... Seems your joke has struck some points, eh friend Pierre ... Long time no see ... As I wrote in my last comment, your portfolio is alive and has grown further ... I was a bit away from photo.net in the last couple of months (some health troubles with my family in India and some urgent work-related issues) but I hope I will find more time January onwards to be back to active duty :-) Afterall, where else one would find such a group of wonderful minds ...

Pierre Dumas , December 12, 2006; 12:55 P.M.

Hey, Rejith, welcome back!

You made my day! Hope your family is well now and I wish them all the best!

Don't know what are you talking about me being on the front page, because I don't even know what is the front page! If you meant about top-photos pages, I'm always there in spite of the hatred of the "three" guys!

Keep in touch my friend!


D. Munteanu , December 12, 2006; 03:57 P.M.

..of this and that

Hm, very modern approach to 'photography' (or should I say collage-work?), it follows a few distinct lines drawn throughout your portfolio and speaks of originality and a personal form of pessimistic humour. This, you obviously express visually, but also semantically, as many of your works have a clear, discernible message. Interesting.

I've also noticed the emphasis you put on ratings and the pathology of 3/3-ers. Although you make pertinent points, I'd suggest a more detached attitude towards this issue. :)

Rejith Warrier , December 12, 2006; 04:26 P.M.

Friend Pierre,

Sorry for abusing your page :-) dont reply, bcz I will delete this one tomorrow, not to make your portfolio look like an e-mail :-) I meant the daily sampling of the PN members' work which spots well-spotted photos has your googy on it today ... Cheers ... 3-3 ers are just pests my friend ... They can cause some itch ...

Pierre Dumas , December 13, 2006; 01:26 A.M.

Do not delete Warrier!

Be a warrior who leaves traces behind! Besides, you bring me luck!

Yes, I saw the front page and it explains the sudden increase of the visits of my member page! Yeah, Googy will stay there forever, it was a plan precisely counted cause I'm not an idiot! I have all arsenal for the Googies in my folder "Googy Dry Department", and more important-in my mind!

Cheers to that my friend!

Paulo Riskas , December 14, 2006; 06:54 A.M.

To the Warrior

Thanks for your comments about my photos. Yes,Guerreiro means Warrior in Portuguese and is the name of the guy.On the stage,playing his guitar he seems and he is like one,eh eh! I make zoom in and zoom out with the lens while i presse the shutter,it is simple. I use the PS only to correct the basic: color,brightness,sharpness,sometimes to adjust the lines and to crop and resize.I don't use any filters before or after neither special efects. The photos i post are just what i saw.I catch the moment throught my reflex and then is a matter of give more or less grain,contrast etc.The work of a dark room. Maybe,because of that,i have so few votes...but is the way i like to do photos. Once again,thanks for the comments,for taking your time,congratulations for you portfolio,and sorry about my english,eh eh!


Josef Tiglezan , December 19, 2006; 03:14 P.M.

Thank You!

Hello Pierre Thank You for your advice on my photo at http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=4559950 it really works! Colleagues like You (beside Your great portfolio) here on PN makes it worth to stay and keep uploading photos despite the 3/3 people. Greetings Josef

Rejith Warrier , December 22, 2006; 08:05 A.M.

Hello Friend Pierre,

I wish you, your family and your friends a merry Christmas and a very happy new year. Thanks for all your support, ratings and comments on my photos in 2006. It helped me a lot to improve my shots and I hope I will be able to learn a lot more from your valuable inputs in the coming months. Wish you a successful 2007 with a lot of nice photos.

Rejith Warrier

Pierre Dumas , December 23, 2006; 03:01 P.M.

Hey, Warrier, same to you!

Happy New Year to you and your family and to all people in India!

Cheers buddy!

Pierre Dumas , December 24, 2006; 07:33 A.M.

And I'm sure you will have a lot of happiness in the year to come!

Cheers to that my friend!

Just, Wonderful!

ugur kocabas , December 31, 2006; 08:21 A.M.

thank you so much for leading me to your gallery by leaving a rating. i must say that i'm far more beyond the thin "impressed" line. your work needs to be examined throughly and deserves more time to be spent on. cong...

daniele manfredini , January 01, 2007; 03:31 A.M.

Dear Pierre is a honour for me your critiques in my portfolio your photo are very incredible abstract, humour, b/white are very very nice and original bye bye

rob reyes , January 01, 2007; 10:11 P.M.

thanks for commenting on my work! and such a nice folio here! thanks and have a wonderful year of capturing!

daniele manfredini , January 04, 2007; 04:17 P.M.

No Ps

No dear pierre i not use PS but a little program very easy your name is virtual painter 5.0 but you what's the program use for your incredible photo?

Kurt De Somviele , January 05, 2007; 02:12 A.M.


Hi Pierre. Thanks for your comments. If an artist starts rating my captures in a positive sense then that means that I have to do better. I just started. You have experience. I will stop by more often. Great work. Thanks, Kurt

Gerry O , January 05, 2007; 11:34 A.M.


Amazing, complex and talented...what a great portfolio. See more in 2007 I hope. Best Regards Pierre

Tony Hadley , January 07, 2007; 06:22 P.M.


Bonjour Pierre, I am glad you stopped by my site and rated one of my photos. It is certainly a pleasure to take in your photography - one from which will stimultate my growth as a photographer. Congrats.

Yuri T. , January 09, 2007; 08:30 A.M.


Dear Pierre! Thanks a lot for comment of my photo. Also, thank you for the advice. I think, that you have noticed features of this work very precisely. You wrote: Morning?!.. It's true and I say: It was morning! But original photo - it was only first sketch for my future work. When I begin working with a photo, I want to do something new, and I can change color, saturations, brightness, can draw something new with Painter or Photoshop. Well it or is bad ? I do not know. If you understand me, it is OK. Sorry, but my English so bad.

Robert Coney , January 09, 2007; 10:41 A.M.

My God! I stopped by for a peak, and as a photographic realist feel as though I fell through a crack in our reality. Somewhere in the cosmos there are worlds like this. How did you see them? Delightful.


Robert Coney

Yiannis Dimkopoulos , January 18, 2007; 07:51 A.M.

franka bades , January 29, 2007; 09:44 A.M.

Very Creative!!

Firts, thanks for looking my portfolio. My congratulations on this creative work, Pierre! Greetings.

Andy de la Cour , January 29, 2007; 02:20 P.M.

Pierre Thankyou for taking the trouble to comment on my image of Saint suliac. I must admit that I was betwix and between with regards to the framing but decided in the end to go with it. I would have felt better if i could have removed the distracting modern buildings from the background, but hey I have a lot to learn about composition too. I enjoyed very much looking at your wonderful gallery, you have the ability to express a wonderful talent in both the abstract and the more shall we call it non abstract. I am a relative novice photographer and as I have said, appreciate very much the thoughts and comments of more experienced photographers. Thanks for that.Andy

Kaushik Chatterjee , January 29, 2007; 03:29 P.M.


Second time I am here and truely speaking no words can describe the feelings of mine after looking yours portfolio. Excellent in all respect. You are truely a class composer. I will be highly honored if you point out my faults in portraits photography. I am here to learn and so please let me know where I have to concentrate. Hope you will do that and mail me if you thing that possible. Best Rgds.

Pierre Dumas , January 30, 2007; 10:01 A.M.

Thank you Franka, thank you Andy, thank you Kaushik!

Andy I looked at your pictures and can say only - add some more of the kind!

Cheers to that!

Kaushik, as I said in reply to your comment on one of my pictures - you must be kidding! My portraits shown here, although I consider myself a pretty good portraitist, are not half as good as your portraits I saw and commented the other night. Nevertheless, it is an honor FOR ME the great Kaushik Jhaterjee to come to me and to ask for advices! Keep on doing your wonderful portraits and don't try to improve them with some decorations for they are good enough and more than that as they are!

Cheers to that, too!


See R , January 31, 2007; 06:13 P.M.

Amazing Abstracts

I was attracted to your page through your best rated abstract work. Amazing stuff--what an artistic sense!

Tom L. , February 02, 2007; 07:38 A.M.

Hello Pierre

Thank you for your critique on my photo. Your work here is very interesting and beautiful, I love the composite work you do!

Best to you, Tom

troy thompson , February 02, 2007; 05:19 P.M.

thanks for your comment on my photos, but i have some advice. the great photographers are the one that dont act or presume to be arrogant. please do not take this as slandering towards you because it truly is not. I do think your work is brillant though.

Pierre Dumas , February 02, 2007; 08:17 P.M.

Thank you Chip, Tom and Troy!

Troy I'm very sorry to leave such an impression on you, the list I want to be is arrogant, but my way of acting may leave that and other unwanted impressions, I know. I appreciate very much your advice and I truly hope we'll meet again in the future and erase that unfortunate thing. I also appreciate your brief comment for it obviously come from a sincere and decent person!

I wish you the best!


Jody Holman Webster , February 11, 2007; 11:13 P.M.

I have not often

if ever, come across a portofolio on thnis site of such devoted PS work and photo/design. your creativity is out of this world, both literally and figuratively! You must have some of that literary Dumas gene that translated through the genearations into a visual one! Your portrait of the caveman belongs in a show or at least a stock photo collection . Stunning. And your shot of the white flower made me say "wow" out loud. I will be back to see more!

Pierre Dumas , February 12, 2007; 01:53 A.M.

Ladies first order!

Thank you Jody, your comment is a striking one! Dumas is not my official name and Alexandre wasn't my ancestor, and I'm not even French. I find though a certain resemblance with one of his heroes. The one who rang bells on the Notre Dame Eglise, ha!

Cheers to that!

Hey, Pascal I almost forgot to thank you for not commenting my portfolio!

Cheers to that, too!


Baerbel Kavanaugh , February 12, 2007; 03:10 P.M.


Pierre, your portfolio is just fabulous. One of the most creative ones I have seen in a long time. Loved viewing it. Add me to the long list of your admirers and I will check back again soon! Regards, Barb :)

Pierre Dumas , February 12, 2007; 08:07 P.M.

Thank you Baerbel, you are already on my list!

I visited only "my admirers" today, and that is how you came here, ha!

Thanks a lot my double admirer!

Cheers to that mon ami!


Paula Grenside , February 13, 2007; 04:28 A.M.

Ah Pierre,

That's one very good thing of Photo.net: a comment and the chance to discover an artist you feel affinity with. Because, besides the high quality of your images, what strikes me is the marvellous creativity , the originality of interpretations, the prsonal touch that make them unique.

Pierre Dumas , February 13, 2007; 06:48 A.M.

Paula, honored to have you here!

You put it so well, one can't say anything after!

Thank you so much for making my day and more than that!


Kevin Temple , February 13, 2007; 07:31 P.M.

One of the utmost best I have seen my friend.I think your style is incredible well done

Pierre Dumas , February 14, 2007; 12:49 P.M.

Cross your heart?

Kevin, you are just trying to comfort me! But it is good, I might have kicked the bucket out of envy after I saw your pictures, far better than any mine of all times!

Thank you for comforting me my brother and God bless!


Linh Dinh , February 14, 2007; 01:19 P.M.

Outstanding Porfolio

Hi Pierre, Thank you for your comments. Amazing and beautiful work!!

Pierre Dumas , February 14, 2007; 02:29 P.M.

Thank you Linh, my friend!

You have the best birds folder I've ever seen Linh! It takes a lot of time, work and good equipment to be done so well!

Cheers my friend!

Guten Tag, Pierre

Mit all den verschiedenen Sprachen weiss ich immer noch nicht welche Ihre ist. Hi Pierre, I have been trying to figure out where you are. With all those different languages it's not easy. Were is your "Home Town"? I am totally impressed with your portfolio, so very interesting. I am glad you made a comment on one of my photos - Abstract B - I have an A as well but not at the present posted, but there is an AA if you care to look. I am calling Victoria, Canada home and send you best wishes and of course keep on shooting and I will visit again...........Helga

Pierre Dumas , February 18, 2007; 01:20 A.M.

Guten Morgen Helga!

Ich gebrauche verschiedene Sprache weil ich nicht einen meinen habe, Ha! Und ich habe nicht meinen Vaterland auch! Der Name der Land in welchen lebe ich, ich nie sage. Vielen Dank fur Ihre Versuch und ihre Komplimenten!



Ted Gorczyca , February 18, 2007; 07:18 A.M.

great portfolio Pierre, lots of different subject and the color pops out in each, I must say though I like your nature and landscapes the best though.

Bojana Vladović , February 18, 2007; 07:51 A.M.

Empty bag...

...that would be quite a good explenation...close to what was in my head. Thanks for your comment, you have a very interesting portfolio...different. And I notices you know croatian...great;)

Cheers, Bojana.

Dennis Jones , February 18, 2007; 11:49 A.M.

Andrew Campbell , February 18, 2007; 05:38 P.M.

Tiffany Oreglia , February 20, 2007; 07:48 P.M.

Hello Pierre,

Thanks for your kind comments!! You have a wonderful portfolio, so full of awesome & original art :-)-Tiffany

Biswajit Pandey , February 23, 2007; 12:31 A.M.


Originality is one thing which is never missing in any of your photos, I do really appreciate your creative and imaginative mind my friend.

Best Regards

Dennis Barnett , February 25, 2007; 11:12 P.M.

Hello Pierre...

Thank you for your recent comment on my Tokyo ribbon shot. It brought me here to your portfolio. I can see why you have such a huge following. Your gallery is one of the most original collection of images I've seen on this site. Reviewing your work, I had to imagine which were retouched and photo-illustrated, and which were pure photographs; in the end, it doesn't matter. What you show is a wonderful, limitless imagination where the camera is merely one of your tools. Keep up the great work!

Kolby Cole , March 05, 2007; 01:47 A.M.

Pierre, where have you now ran off too,, I miss your creative energy and your quick wit, I hope to see more of your work soon... Cole

Andy de la Cour , March 10, 2007; 08:06 A.M.

Thank you

Thank you for your views on my picyures, I value your thoughts very much. You have a wondrful talent as a photographer and artist. you are also kind enough to take the time to comment on the work of others. Thank you Pierre. Your Friend Andy

Dennis Jones , March 11, 2007; 11:01 P.M.


I've used the word unique a few times lately... But by far your 'folio is UNIQUE... well done set of photography

Erik Lewandowski , March 11, 2007; 11:36 P.M.

Outstanding portfolio Pierre, love your work.

Vittorio Pellazza , March 13, 2007; 09:44 P.M.

Great portfolio, incredible creativity and sensitive eye. Congratulations.

Teresa Au Yeung , March 14, 2007; 06:42 A.M.

Hi Pierre, your portfolio is a source of wonder, with so many artisic and original images, some of them stunningly beautiful, some of them full of fun, but all obviously from the work of a master! I want to thank you so much for taking the time to view and comment on my architecture folder. Your comments are most appreciated!Though I often feel the compliments should really go to the architects, I just happen to be there with a good camera and lens :) But anyway, thanks a lot!!

Joan Newhall , March 21, 2007; 11:01 A.M.

Your portfolio was such fun to browse through. You have a wonderful talent and make us smile... Very, very nice.

-Stn- Tanya , March 21, 2007; 04:21 P.M.

Luc F (Montréal) , March 21, 2007; 05:00 P.M.


Merci Pierre, thanks for your good critique on my cat picture Eclipse. I really appreciate your comments, especially because i love your work and i think that you are a great artist. Luc

Thomas Schnaider , March 22, 2007; 01:27 A.M.

I had a really good time browsing through you very inspiring and beautifully done portfolio. It's a great collection. Kind regards - Thomas.

Katrina Van Tassel , March 22, 2007; 06:06 A.M.

Bruce Levy , March 22, 2007; 12:25 P.M.

Superb portfolio. Consistent and magnificent. Thank you.

Tom H , March 24, 2007; 09:59 A.M.

Never loose the kid

Pierre, thanks for commenting on one of my images. I was wondering what your work and the googy dry series. You are a facinating man :), wonder what keeps your clock ticking...especially the creative one


Darren and Danielle Jones , March 30, 2007; 03:16 A.M.


Wow, you are a true wiz. This is the first I have had to sit down and look through all of your work and I am glad I did. Good, no GREAT WORK. Darren

Vittorio Pellazza , April 03, 2007; 06:13 A.M.

Pierre, thank you very much for your comments. It isn't easy to find useful critiques, yours are very useful and I'll keep in mind your valuable advices. About your portfolio, as I already said in the past, it's incredible rich and creative with curiosity to experiment that often people lose entangled in technical cares. Bye and have good work.

Juan Carlos Rivera , April 04, 2007; 03:20 P.M.

Dear Pierre, what a lot of creative works in your portfolio! I enjoy abstract ones, but some portraits or humoristic photos are very good too!. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, JC

Bojana Vladović , April 05, 2007; 02:01 P.M.


...dan danas pu?e i dica...svasta se vidi...

Sretan Uskrs!


Dale L , April 08, 2007; 12:52 A.M.

I detect a master at work here ... you have mastered composition, colours and shapes and at the same time developed a unique style particularly evident in your more abstract works.

Steve Augle , April 08, 2007; 12:47 P.M.


Costas Ellos , April 10, 2007; 02:30 A.M.

Abstracts or not, your photos are really something else, something new, making art, making point !! Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee(...)eeeeery good !

Mark Loraine , April 10, 2007; 03:56 A.M.


Great great work !

Thanks for your comments on my City Hall piece...looks like 3-3 is still possible even with a half decent shot !

Your insight helped.

Thanks again


Kenrick Rampial , April 11, 2007; 12:53 P.M.

Hello Pierre I am very grateful to have found your portfolio. I admire your talent and your years of experience. I enjoy your creativity and the many different styles of expression in your shots. Also I have had my share of the 3/3 guys so I was glad to see your take on them.

Keith Pena , April 19, 2007; 04:31 P.M.


Greeings Pierre Dumas! Thank you for your keen advice on my photo (Train in Indiana). I agree with your comments and will certainly strive to implement your advice on future photos. Your portfolio is full of life and superbly artistic photography. It is always a pleasant surprise to be introduced to such talent. Continue to love your craft as a life long friend. Thanks for sharing and hope to see more from you. Best regards.

Dennis Aubrey , April 27, 2007; 03:01 P.M.

Thought I'd posted here before ...

... with a comment on your portfolio, but guess have only done single shots. Your work is like a gust of cold air off the mountains, clearing out musty ideas and low-hanging preconceptions. Googy is great, the math abstracts, your portraits. And you have a point of view as well, which is refreshing. I will pass back through this portfolio whenever I'm feeling self-satisfied or just need a challenge. Thanks.

Laura P , April 29, 2007; 04:36 P.M.

Thanks for looking and raiting my images. Woowww...!!! I am very impresed with your portfolio... I like your creativity and originality!!!! ;)

Sally Delacruz , May 02, 2007; 04:09 A.M.

Kazimiera M , May 03, 2007; 12:42 A.M.

How could I miss such a strong character(biography),originality in the collection and the way you connect with others. Congratulation. Best regards :)

Kazimiera M , May 06, 2007; 01:32 A.M.

Thank you Pierre for your suggestions, good thing you didn't comment my portfolio, I would be crush from your comments, maybe next time,one question how you make a cow out of the cactus, long way to go,much to learn, thanks again.Best regards :)

Dmitri Dorokhov , May 25, 2007; 02:09 A.M.

Hi, Pierre, thanks for your comments on my photos I am just stunned after seeing your portfolio. I will not rate each photos as you asked in your biography, only my general opinion: it is simply amusing, sometimes funny, very creative and different from what i used to see and make, i will definitely return to your site cheers!

Liz Weisiger , May 25, 2007; 11:45 A.M.

Pierre, your comment on my four leaf clover said exactly what I was trying to do. I feel great: a true master thinks like me! Your pictures are amazing - I am still trying to get to all of them, and I love how you use the camera to evoke such strong feelings. You are a "person of interest" for me.

G Dii , May 25, 2007; 01:01 P.M.

hello, thank you for your critique on the originality of my photo. I've just seen your portfolio; now I know that you are a master of originality. You have a great portfolio!

Hello Pierre

Thanks very much indeed for your comment. You faithfully feel and describe with words the idea and the situation behind the photo! Great!! PS: If you want I can improve a little the italian translation of your biography. Cheers. Daniele

José Ernesto Ortiz Razo , May 27, 2007; 01:05 P.M.

Hi Pierre, thanks for your comment on my photo The Colima volcano by night.In Mexico there are lot of volcanos in activity, for example, The Colima, The Popocatepetl, near to Mexico city, The Chichonal in Chiapas state,( 20 years ago, this killed more than 2000 peoples). You can get more info in http://www.ucol.mx/volcan/ http://volcano.und.edu/vwdocs/volc_images/north_america/mexico/popocatepetl.html Thanks and greetings from Mexico.

Bert Reitter , May 27, 2007; 07:12 P.M.

Joking aside

Hi, Pierre! All good fun aside, I must now tell you in all seriousness, that I admire your work greatly. It is so multi faceted, and all of it of such high quality, that it would be senseless to speak of the usual : The dof and the focus and the composition and the whatnot...One can only speak of your work in an overall manner. You are truly an artist in the field of Photography and I am proud to be able to say: I learned from Pierre Dumas....Bert

Bert Reitter , May 27, 2007; 07:20 P.M.



marc barbu , May 28, 2007; 07:51 P.M.

hello again sir

is been almost a year since i've seen your portofolio the last time...most of the pictures are changed but i have the same feeling of being overwelmed by your imagination. I see you like a mix of A.E.Poe and Mark Twain...two very expanded, egocentrical and full of imagination personalities...but so different that each one wants to controle you, and in the strugle for power, some photos just...pop out. Once a kid, always a kid my friend :) I really hope that you'll never grow up :)

Pierre Dumas , May 28, 2007; 11:43 P.M.

Thank You all my friends! Your coments are a joy for me, I just have a problem to reach the end of this page! Cheers to that!

Marc, I promised you once and I'm a man when promises are in question! When I think of that matter I can even say that kids a greater men than men! Cheers to that!

parastoo parvazi , May 31, 2007; 12:16 P.M.

Thanks for your comment .

Walter Hinterberger , June 01, 2007; 11:15 A.M.

Pierre. How I missed your portfolio until now - I will never know. Let me make a few points . Take them as you will...

1) You joined Photonet on my birthday last year. It must mean something.

2) I thank you for commenting on one of my photos , I am honoured.

3) You are like a fresh wind blowing through the pages of this site.

4) You are a complete original , one of a kind and a genius.

5) You are a total loon . The kind of loon we need badly here.

6) Your work hits me over the head like a sledgehammer.

7) I may even start thinking about my photography again.

9) Have a long and happy life ( if you throw that thing in your mouth away )

10) I'm very happy to see Stari Most up again ... Best wishes , Walter.

Rick Sanford, III , June 01, 2007; 05:14 P.M.

Very diverse and storied portfolio. "Friend on my finger" is especially nice. Simple yet very sharp and creative. Thanks for the tips on how to make a good photo even better. I really appreciate the input. Best Regards, Rick III

shelly loyd , June 01, 2007; 06:32 P.M.

...it has been a true pleasure Pierre. Impressive way of Creating! Interesting work, creative, fresh, original and with sense of humor... love it! You have wonderful images. You have much to say! I can see. You are an anxious soul, ha, ha. Good Light!!

Dan Gray , June 12, 2007; 05:15 A.M.

Beautiful Work Pierre!

Wow what can I say about your abstracts that hasn't been said by many here. They are amazingly creative and artistic works which I could look at for a long time and still take pleasure from. You have some very nice portraits of some interesting characters! Thankyou for your comments on my photo, it means a lot.

Stefano Truzzi , June 12, 2007; 07:10 A.M.

Hi Pierre, tanks for view and comment my picture. Don't worry for the ratings, on this site you can get a 3 on an aviation picture from someone who is use to take picture at weddings. If you post a nude you are sure to have an incredible number of views and a good rating average. They are like that, all coming from the donkeys group of 3/3 anonimous rater. Congratulations for your incredible portfolio, it's really amazing.

Dimitris Vasiliou , June 18, 2007; 12:00 P.M.


Merci beaucoup de votre commentaire c'tres gentil! We have a saying in greek: 'Don't cry for the eagle that flies in the rain, save your tears for a bird that has no wings... The pholosopher Diogenes was walking around in broad daylight holding a lantern, when the bemused hoipolloi asked him ironically: 'What are you looking for, Diogenes?' He replied: I am looking for a man.....I am sure you are one of those men he was looking for! Courage mon ami! Au revoir, Dimitri.

I was surprised when I saw how many comments and ratings did you leave on my photos. Your advices is great for me, I post on photo.net for this kind of things, and is not easy to capture atention...(if you know what I mean). Did you lived in Croatia... Beautiful country with great landscapes... This is the link who asking for: http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=6107734 (the ratings.........) Thanks for look through my photos!

Mike Normandeau , June 28, 2007; 10:34 P.M.

Ton portfolio est maginifique!

Merci, Mike

By Helga , July 02, 2007; 03:28 A.M.

Lieber Pierre

No beating around the proverbial "googy dry" bush (or bushel? there must be many). You have a great sense of humor (leaving your comment on the "just visiting" image). I have been keeping track, not score!! You are a wonderful artist and no 3/3 should bother you, ever!!! It does not reflect on you, but those who give them, jealous I would guess. Ich wuensche Ihnen das allerbeste, und bitten Sie immer wieder Ihre wunderschoenen Bilder zu veroeffentlichen hier am P.N. Ihre Freundin..............Helga

Jean Pierre Romeyer , July 03, 2007; 08:15 A.M.

Extremely creative and various portfolio ! I will take time to explore it carefully, as it deserves it...thanks for your comments and advices, that I totaly agree...All the best.


Cedrico Fernandez , July 04, 2007; 12:01 P.M.


.. I was so very honored you dropped me your comments/advice of one of my pix. You made me aware of the flaws. I then realize the importance of matching a logical relation between background and effects. Not just the execution of a good idea but of proper selection of components to make up the idea it?s fullest.

I went through your portfolio and viewed your work in gasp/speechless .. it seems there aren't any words left for me to described your natural abilities, everything had been said . I wanted something unheard for you are even better than what have been mentioned and described. You remain humble inspite of all the glory.. and with the clever impression of fusing modesty and humor. This qualities are stamped in most of your works that differ from all the others. Thanks for sharing your portfolio.. a perfect venue for learner like me. Ixograndpa.

Lucas Steuber , July 10, 2007; 07:33 P.M.


I followed a trail of your comments back to this portfolio and am genuinely amazed by your originality and humor ... keep up the great work, I'll be back!

Now, let's see, which photo to 3/3 ... ;)

Goran Anastasovski , July 11, 2007; 02:12 A.M.

Prekrasno. Nemam zborovi

Alan Parkes , July 18, 2007; 09:52 P.M.


My first visit to your portfolio. It won't be my last. Very inventive, creative, artistic. Very original. A sense of humour and vitality. I wonder about your techniques and I wonder how you "see" such possibilities before you start. Great stuff!

Vitek Latzel , July 20, 2007; 12:40 P.M.

Re: Vitek, I think we have something in common!

dear Pierre, thank you for so kind words. Especially from you sound so nice! Yes, I can feel similar mood glowing from our pictures...from our selves (???? :-)....and it makes me proud because there are no doubts that your pictures are really WONDERFUL and I have much to learn from you!!! >:-)

Tom H , July 28, 2007; 12:44 P.M.

Tuscan skies

Pierre, thanks for the comment.... I do like these tobacco lit skies and I didn't use any filters or gimmicks just the Tuscan sky at night. Seeing the image brings me back to complete utter and perfect calmness. Cheers, Tom

Andrew Campbell , July 28, 2007; 07:27 P.M.


Congratulations on your new website. Looks great!

Best regards.

Anush Krishnaswami , July 29, 2007; 05:08 P.M.


Hi Pierre - thanks for your kind comments and ratings. The picture of yours that people bombarded with 3/3s deserves a 7/7. I really loved that image and similar ones in your portfolio. Keep it up.

Apurva Madia , October 08, 2007; 03:51 P.M.

Hi Pierre. Thanks for your critique on my picture Quiet Contemplation. Checked out your portfolio and it is simply superb! Read your biography and your misgivings about the rating system too. I nave one observation to make. Your work is far too superior for you to care for the ratings. Keep up the quality! Regards, Apurva.

Cynthia Jean , October 08, 2007; 05:24 P.M.

I do like your portfolio Pierre. very unique and different. A one of a kind and so creative. Thank you for allowing me through PN to view your wonderful work! Take care.

Boeboe Fiel , October 09, 2007; 03:23 A.M.

very diverse and beauiful portfolio

Thanks to your comment on my latest photo I found your portfolio. I really like the immense diversity of styles. Especially the portraits are really inspiring. I will come back for more.

Rob van Berkel , October 09, 2007; 04:28 A.M.


Thanks Pierre, for commenting and apreciating my first low key shot. I've seen and read most of your texts and photos here on photo.net, and I understand your frustration (and i LOVE your work - original and a MUST SEE). Just after posting nudes it very often happens to me that one or two anonymous voters are generous with their threes... it's part of the anonymous nature i think. yes it frustrates, but nevertheless i find this worldwide forum a great means of sharing and inspiring.
Thanks again for your apreciation :-)
cheers, Rob

Jim Downs , October 16, 2007; 05:24 A.M.

Glad to see you are still lurking out there! Best, GJ

Sylvie Bélanger , November 11, 2007; 07:17 P.M.

Welcome Back Pierre !

I missed you !!!!! .... I was surprised to read that your real name was not "Pierre Dumas", that you took that name in reference of Alexander Dumas !!!!! Anyway, I'm glad you're back home Mr. X .. ;-)))



Kenneth Fugate , November 17, 2007; 07:32 A.M.

Hello Friend!

Well here it is another year is passing away and we are coming into the holidays. I think time starts to go faster as we get older, it was just yesterday I wished my friends Happy Holidays and here it is again the end of a year. The holiday lights are starting to be put on some of the trees here in Dallas, we were out last night and some were lighting the trees. I wish for you all a holiday season with family and friends, after all is said and done all we have is each other.

I want all of you to know just what your comments and ratings on my work means to me, your words are my motivation, my drive to discover, to learn this art that we all love, thank you for taking time and thank you for caring about my works. At the same time thank you for letting us see your world, our lives are so much the same, we all care about our families and friends and we all share the same things, maybe someday our photos will help make for a lasting world peace. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting


Olivier Paul , November 19, 2007; 12:10 A.M.

Full of Creativity

Pierre, Thanks for your comment which lead me to your portfolio. Fresh, varied, creative, I truly enjoyed looking at your art.

Cynthia Bowers , November 19, 2007; 08:25 A.M.

In Awe...

Your portfolio is a masterpiece of creativity, beauty and an inspiration to all photographers. Your images are examples of seeing the world as a canvas waiting to be revealed by a master such as yourself. Thank you for your comment on my recent landscape which drew me to your incredible portfolio and rest assured, I will be back to view what magic you discover (or create) in the future.

Dave Hollander , November 19, 2007; 11:28 A.M.


Except for the heart-melting beauty, dazzling virtuosity, jaw-dropping creativity and the soul which reaches out and grabs you by the throat, there's really not much of interest here. Anyone up for a latte?

Joseph Popper , November 20, 2007; 01:41 A.M.


I've already commented on the wonderful quality of your portfolio, but I dropped by now to say I'd read some of your recent comments and am so happy to see you back. Warm regards, Joe

Jim Downs , November 20, 2007; 08:16 P.M.

Pierre, Good to see you here again. Some of us miss you - even if it just a little!

David Morgan , November 23, 2007; 07:39 P.M.

Hi Pierre,

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment on one of my photos. Having seen your portfolio, that is indeed an honour! Your abstract work is incredible and your attention to detail leaves nothing to chance. You are truly a professional. Thanks again.


David Morgan

Ankur Thatai , November 24, 2007; 07:09 A.M.

Pierre, I like your portfolio...you have great collection. Yor sence of editing is powerful and your work is appealing most important thing is your pics are not in monotone means every photo has unique identification and different appearance, which is very tough to maintain.I would like to in touch with you 'coz I'm not good in Photo editng soft wares like photoshop.... hope I learn more form you... keep posting and capturing. regards Ankur

Ron Dobbs , November 25, 2007; 08:30 P.M.

Hello Mr Dumas, Thank you very much for the high rating and glad you like SAFETY OF LIFE AT SEA #11. It means a lot to me coming from you. I looked over your images and am humbled. RED

To Pierre

Pierre! I'm pleasantly surprised with the eye you have for making photos. Artistic point of view and abstract composition you implement make wonders and observer's eye can only rest and admire your work. I wish you good work and keep on this way. Cheers, Vukasin

Liz Weisiger , December 07, 2007; 11:21 A.M.

Hello, Pierre. I dropped by to look longer at some of your work. I'm especially interested in the Digital Painting pieces. Yours are so incredible, and I'm developing an interest in trying to do some of them. I have to see what "the master" is doing before I start, though. Regards always, liz

roger sonneland , December 08, 2007; 03:46 P.M.

Greetings Pierre, from New Zealand

Hello Pierre, have just spent a couple of pleasant hours looking through your work and reading some of your comments, not sure which I preferred the most, they both brought me pleasure. All the best.....roger

Stefano Anghileri , December 08, 2007; 04:11 P.M.

Pierre.... WOW what a gallery! It is so different from the others I've seen on this site. Even if I admit I do not understand much of PhotoShop and softwares in general, I consider your work outstanding, incredible, marvellous, but, most of all, BRILLIANT. I'm really sorry you had problems with ratings, you certainly do not deserve it. Ah, thank you for commenting one of my photos, it was much appreciated.

Dan Kays , December 09, 2007; 12:13 A.M.

Pierre, your work is unbelievable. Thanks for looking at one of my photos, hopefully you can by and see more of my work as it becomes available.

Mon. Pierre, let me first congratulate you on your very creative and diverse portfoio...it was a most enjoyable experience going through it. I specially like your Doggy,Sweetheart (boy aint she cute!!!),Mon. Magister(I see a family resemblance...the moustache!?),Wacky morning....I could go on...and on...I truly feel refreshed.Thanks for taking the time for stopping by my portfolio. Honored by your comments. I also have a Doggy in my portfolio... and since you seem to love everything french, I have the Eiffel tower tucked in there somewhere! Would really appreciate it if you could stop by and take a peek... afterall you have, in your portfolo, declared that it would be your sworn duty to spare no effort for the cause of good photography...like the good Pharoah of yore once declared...let that be written...let that be done!!!...and before I sign off, I'd like to quote the good Governor Arnold Schwartznegger ...'I'll be back'...you can bet on that!Cheers...!!!

Satheesh Nair , December 10, 2007; 01:56 A.M.

Hi Pierre! So you came ...you saw and you critiqued! Great to have you visit my site mon ami! Your ratings truly justified and comments greatly appreciated! I've been doing the rounds of your portfolio Pierre, but how do you critique a guy whose most frequented shots are more than most people's portfolios?!...Confucius say "Man who fling dung already in deep shit!"...and so please dont expect long commentaries... and those 3/3 guys...do continue to make your rounds often... and let them know that they are being watched! Cheers !!!

Alex Koutsalexis , December 10, 2007; 01:31 P.M.

Gideon F , December 17, 2007; 03:57 P.M.

Hi Pierre, thanks for your comments on my work. You have one of the most interesting portfolios that I have ever come across. You have some amazing work! Regards, Gideon

Robert A. Zervos , December 18, 2007; 08:33 A.M.


First of all I'd like to thank you for taking the time to look at and critique my picture. I am new to PN and haven't uploaded many pictures yet, I will soon register and upload some work. I came by to see your work and to be honest I am awed by it. It seems that every one of your images has so much to say. I could be staring at each one of them for a long time, but alas we have to make a living too, so time is a luxury. Your education, sensitivity, worries and experience are apparent in all your images. I will be stopping here often to learn. Thank you for sharing yourself with us.

Janie Barber , December 21, 2007; 12:38 P.M.


My dear friend I am back to your portfolio and as usual AWESOME!!! Once again you exhibit such a great talent and you have quite a technique with PhotoShop. I can't make myself sit down and work with PS as I will need a lot of peace and quite to concentrate. I own and operate an antique mall (don't think I am getting rich) and there is always someone coming in or out. I get started on something and I just might as well stop as everyone likes to talk and I am definitely a people person. Can't you tell by this lengthy comment, lol. Anyway, Pierre, wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a happy,healthy, and successful New Year.

Pierre Dumas , December 21, 2007; 11:59 P.M.

Welcome Janie and thank you, Merry Xmas to you too and a Happy New Year!

Lauren Partida , December 28, 2007; 02:53 A.M.

Pierre: Your portfolio is wonderful, and shows a great deal of talent and experience, and above all courage to try new things. You do very unconventional work, and excel at the presentation of everything that you do...Thank you for your comments and guidance. Being brand new to photography, I'm trying to find my way, and determine what I need to work on, what path to take. One thing is certain, it is all consuming and more of a passion than I have felt in many years. Like being in love for the first, second, and third time. Any suggestions on what would improve my work I will glady accept from such a master...gratefully, lauren

Anneke van Tomputte , December 28, 2007; 04:55 A.M.

Thank you for your constructive comment on my photo, "Audrey". I took the opportunity to look at your portfolio and wow. So many good, no great, photographers on here. I shall add you to my list of interested in, among a listing of about 5 others so far. My favorites are your "recent" and your "abstract". Wonderful.

Ross Murphy , December 29, 2007; 12:18 A.M.

Dear Pierre; thank you for your comment on my photo "Streets for children". Your comment made me happy and honored. I am a new member of photo.net and your comment gave me positive energy to go on :) By the way, I adored your photo with dolls which remined me my old photos, I will upload them soon and I am looking forward to read your comments on them. Thanks again and best wishes...

Christos Xydis , January 04, 2008; 09:01 A.M.

Excellent portfolio!

John Soulnier S. III , January 05, 2008; 10:51 P.M.


You have some very ubiquitous work here. I like what you did for ino smurf. So I had to look at your portfolio, I don't know if I want to graduate to your level of Digital Doctor. after seeing what you do I think I'll stay in the old school. I going to let wind,water and gravity bend my work. I'm almost 50 years old I don't think I should spend that much time looking at this CRT. I like to know how long that took you to do that for her. Maybe it is faster than I think. Let me know, Thank You

Pierre Dumas , January 06, 2008; 02:10 A.M.

Thank you Ino, Christos and John!

John, I didn't measure time, but I estimate that it was five minutes! About two minutes to erase the data only, one minute to skew and the rest was very fast and easy due to the simple kind of selection (I had to select only two straight lines precisely). Adding effects doesn't take time!


Bert Reitter , January 07, 2008; 12:35 A.M.

Hi Pierre

You asked me to come and visit you sometime. I know that I have commented on several of your images, but when i look for them now, I cannot find them. There are, however, two entries of mine dated 27th May and one dated 18th August at the end of your site.. Now to come to the gist of the matter: I visit your portfolio often. Your pictures are so challenging and speak of a deep artistic bent that I am hesitant to speak of them. As you can see, I am just a very simple photographer, showing what I see, so that I in no way can compare myself to you, or would have the nerve to critisize your work....Greetings, Bert

Ron Dobbs , January 07, 2008; 08:12 P.M.

Thank you Pierre

Hey, I am very glad you liked my image....TIME. Thanks for the encouragement and positive support. Your portfolio is just great....Nice use of color and creative form with a serious message and also unique humor....Stay safe and keep up your agenda....Regards...Ron Dobbs

Robert Coney , January 12, 2008; 11:11 P.M.

Hi Mr. Dumas. Welcome back. What a difficult corner of the world you live in. I have just finished histories of the Ottoman Empire, and then of Ghengis Khan. Your land has been trampled by these maniacs. On our side of the world, we have not (yet) experienced these waves of invaders. Old world/ new world. We do have better internet I suppose. Anyway, keep up your production. It is a glipse into the unknown for many of us. Regards. Robert Coney. Georgia USA

Leanna Weber , January 17, 2008; 08:34 P.M.

I am so glad you are back!!! I dont know how I could have not had you marked as interesting...you are one of the most interesting people I know. You will see me soon. Hugs, Leanna:O)

Jörg Vetter , January 19, 2008; 03:00 A.M.

Thanks for your comment. Its not a question who is JUDAS, everybody has something like that old story in the mind - or ?Your portfolio is a world of "DALIISM" or what painting style do yo mean is next to your work ? I like it. Thus the portrats are not my favorite of your work. I try to make some art as well - but however different to yours.It will be great to get your reply. Good inspirations ! BR Joerg

Pierre Dumas , January 21, 2008; 04:31 A.M.

Thank you Bert, Ron, Robert, Leanna and Jorg!

Leanna, you are full of compliments that please my vanity, keep up that way!

Jorg, I don't see many questions in your input except for the DALISM! Believe me I don't know nothing about painting and couldn't possibly "copy" Dali, or Picasso or anybody else, simply because I don't know nothing about their occupations!


Tina Karina , January 27, 2008; 02:59 P.M.

Peter Blum , March 01, 2008; 05:31 P.M.

Hello Pierre, Absolutely stunning images. It transpires that you master the art of using Photoshop better than many of us. But lots of imagination, creativity and no doubt, much work behind each single image. Looking through your impressive gallery, is pure fun and enjoyment. Ah, how we mortals have a long way to even to reach close to your level. All the best Peter

M Haanel , March 03, 2008; 10:45 P.M.


So many strong and memorable photographs! The dedication and intensity you put into each photograph is remarkable.

Thanks for noticing me.

Jörg Vetter , March 09, 2008; 05:50 P.M.

Again I was impressed by your perfect work. Thanks for the visit. By the way my staff is not computerwork - you are perfect in. What I am doing is: FOTOUNIFICATION - threedimensional objects in combination with paintings by using only light and the lens to create a new quality of message. BR Joerg

Christal Steele , March 11, 2008; 09:59 A.M.


I'm new to photography and have basically always preferred traditional photography....by that I mean recreating images that look as close to the original as possible. Since I recently joined PN, I'm starting to challenge myself on that. Your work is inspirational! You're not only a great photographer....but you're an artist in the truest sense. You make the world play by YOUR rules. :) I've marked you as a favorite so it will be easy for me to return to your portfolio. Thank you for your delightful take on the world!

Hugh Miley , April 04, 2008; 11:47 P.M.

Hey Pierre!

Thanks for all your nice and more importantly, helpful, comments. It really is nice to get both praise and advice from you as you are obviously are a very accomplished and passionate photographer!

Very surrealistic portfolio, I have not seen something like this before. I have to admit, it is not the style I work on, but I find your pictures really interesting. There is something for every kind of photographer in each of your folders. Thank you for your rating on one of my pictures too...Greetings, juergen

Hello Pierre, thanks for your comment! your portfolio is a massive work. very well. your images show th other side of life, chaotic spacial fragment. very good work!!


Dave Barstow , May 12, 2008; 01:18 A.M.

Inspiring work...

Hi Pierre, I see that you certainly have the `Eye' of an artist. What I find personally interesting is your choice of subject and your style of presentation. In looking at this folder I try to feel the overall sense of the images, not focusing on an individual image until I have absorbed an impression of the thinking that went into the creation of the body-of-work shown.

By absorbing the details of the images my mind will retain bits of information that may integrate well with something I am working on in the future. That is how I draw inspiration from the work of others.

Thank you for helping to fill my mind's palette.

Paulo Riskas , May 12, 2008; 07:54 A.M.

Hi Pierre

Thanks for your comment. Great hear about you, my friend! Good work!

Michelle White , May 14, 2008; 12:09 P.M.

Pierre, a very interesting portfolio. I should like to see some of your earlier film work (40 yrs in the making?). fascinating digital images, of which i am not at all skilled. a pleasure to be inspired by. regards, mmwhite

Paulo Riskas , May 15, 2008; 07:18 A.M.

Thanks again,Pierre!

Sreten Pantelic , May 17, 2008; 07:14 A.M.

Pure art!

Congrats for your excellent galery and the works that have a great artistic level. On the other side, each of your pictures and creations carry a message imho! Your creativity is just amazing.

Raquel Sabina , May 17, 2008; 01:46 P.M.


Thank you for taking the time to rate and write about my work. I am fascinated with your work. I have been doing photography for about 2 years and photoshop for about 6 months...so I am trying to get there... Your work, I am sure will be an inspiration not obly to me , but many others. Thank you and keep creating

Kat Seymour , May 18, 2008; 05:00 A.M.

Thank you so much for taking hte time to rate and critique my photo, your gallery is stunning your high rating means a lot to me. It is people like you who make this place a wonderful place to learn

You are a great "image-creator" and a great photographer too. I like very much your works. Ciao, Raffaella

Karlwim Heese , May 18, 2008; 12:18 P.M.

Great Art

Thanks Pierre - it is always nice to get comments from a distinguished artist as yourself!

One of my friends, Wilana van Zyl says when she feels down, she just goes to photo.net and read the nice comments on her photo's!

If I read all the comments on you home page - It seems that you are supporting and inspiring a lot of us - thanks!


Ronda Sliter , May 18, 2008; 12:40 P.M.

Thank You

Thank You for your nice comment on my Apple Blossoms photo. Yes those close up are hard to get them just the way I want them. I took several shots of that flower and finally ended up with a couple I liked. This is a very interesting portfolio, I have never done any abstracts maybe someday I will give it a shot. I will come back as I have more time and view some more of your work.

Salvador Penaloza , May 18, 2008; 11:48 P.M.

excellent !!

You have a very good portfolio and you are an artist. Congratulation! But, is this photography? Regards.

R Sekhar , May 20, 2008; 12:36 A.M.

Hello Pierre

Thanks for taking the interest to add a comment on many of my pictures. Re the most recent Olive Oyl picture, I'm not sure why I like it either, but there was something about those bottles!! Anyway, I digress. I find your portfolio absolutely stunning. It is amazing how one simple camera box that shoots pictures lends itself to so many interpretations. It is very stimulating to see so much originality and creativity in this forum. After years of shooting a camera on the auto mode, I am beginning to actually compose my pictures and challenge myself. Though very much a beginner and an amateur, I am having a whole lot of fun trying to find my own way and expression. Good critiques, or even meaningful personal opinions help in the sense of seeing how one's work is perceived, and allowing for growth. I welcome a 3/3 and a 7/7 in the same spirit! Cheers, and thanks for a spectacular portfolio.

Giovanni Barbera , May 20, 2008; 08:12 A.M.

Thanks Pierre! Fa sempre piacere ricevere commenti da fotografi esperti!

Rafał Gdak , May 21, 2008; 05:59 A.M.

Nick Jeftic , May 22, 2008; 04:57 P.M.

Hey Pierre, thanks for taking you time with some of my photos! As you well noticed I have flaws in my techique which is mostly due to my limited experience and knowledge of the craft of photography. I am glad you lead me to your page as well as your web-sire because I can definetely lear a lot there! Obviously you have unlimited imagination and a total comand of photographic and post production techiques, something I look forward to achieving some day. Thanks once again and do stay in touch!

PS Croatian is my mother toungue but of course as most most Croats of my generation I also understand Serbian.

Carlos Guaimare , May 23, 2008; 10:19 A.M.


Esto no es un portafolio!! Es un museo lleno de obras de arte! Es increible la calidad, los colores, los montajes, es poesia plasmada en pixeles! No se cual me gusta mas de todas tus fotos. Todas son bellisimas. Por favor no visites mi portafolio, espera al menos 10 a�os a que yo me acerque a tu calidad. Eres un MAESTRO!!!

Francisco Ribeiro do Vale , May 23, 2008; 11:52 A.M.

Hi Pierre

Your portifolio is marvellous. I enjoyed very much all your photos, specially the flowers and all nature. You are very creative. Congrats. Thank you very much for your comments on my photo. Regards, Chico do Vale.

Edmond Carson , May 24, 2008; 12:46 P.M.

Jo Ottoy , May 24, 2008; 02:29 P.M.


...was the first emotion to cross my mind when I saw your portfolio. Your obviously a great Photoshop talent and have a great eye for creativity. Thanks for commenting on one of my pictures, your contribution really mattered to me. All too often people judge pictures without giving any background. I really learned from your suggestion and that's what matters. Thanks again and once more congrats with your work. Lots of regards from Belgium

Yinka Oyelese , May 24, 2008; 05:20 P.M.



Thanks for the kind comments left on my portfolio. I decided to pop in and was totally amazed. Your portfolio is incredible. Such great work.

We have something else in common. Just yesterday, I was telling my wife that Alexandre Dumas was may favorite author. What a surprise to learn that you love him too. Ever read the "Black Tulip"?

Best wishes


tommy culbreth , May 25, 2008; 01:20 A.M.


Pierre's contribution to the enjoyment of this site is large. His pictures are imaginative and well composed, showing beautiful artistic ability as well as mastery of the tools of his trade. his digitally altered pictures are the standard i am trying to reach. A photographer is a noble calling to what ever heights you take it and his is lofty. A true artist...

Ruben A. Silva , May 25, 2008; 07:58 A.M.


I love your very origina, surrealistic work.. I guess I will be coming frequently here to check your new works.. very inspiring.. My full respect.. REgards. Ruben, from Buenos Aires

Thomas Powell , May 25, 2008; 08:08 A.M.


I thank you for your comments on my photo, but then I visited and have seen fine art, great humor, and alot of PS play that inspires me to muck up some more of my captures. You are a genius sir.

Curtis Savard , May 26, 2008; 08:17 A.M.

Pierre, thank you for taking the time to comment and rate some of my images. Your time is most appreciated. Curtis Savard

Hello, Pierre! First of all, thank you for your rating. I must say I'm not a big fan of the style you work in, but I really, really appreciate the hard work behind it. All the best from me.

b kris , May 28, 2008; 09:23 P.M.

Pierre, thank you for commenting on my photos. I have little experience in abstract art, but I must say I very much like your portraiture--would love to see more portrait work of yours. Regards--Brad

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my Kestrel Falcon, I�m just starting to attempt to take my photography past the snap shot phase. The encouragement from someone with as keen an eye as yours is greatly appreciated. Your work is truly inspiring. Well done!

LK Hill , May 31, 2008; 11:31 P.M.

Hi Pierre..!! thanks for taking the time to look at my photos and rate them..!!!!

yours is a very unique portfolio....you have a very refeshing 'point of view'...

Stefano Bugetti , June 01, 2008; 05:08 P.M.

Dear PDE,

you are a very pleasant fellow. I thank you for your appreciate comments about my shots. Your critiques are very useful. Go on !

Nancy Barrett , June 02, 2008; 11:58 A.M.

Hey Pierre,

Thanks for your critique on my Guitars: Waiting to Play image. I had to laugh, though, when you mentioned no longer being "master" of PS...ha! Then I took a look at your portfolio! The joke is that I haven't even upgraded to PS yet, and I'm trying to force myself to become more familiar with its features. I'm a bit lazy and just want to go out and shoot (with my camera, not an AK-47, mind you), but not being able to manipulate my images properly afterwards is handicapping the quality of my work.

If you really aren't familiar with Fractalius (and you aren't just gently having me on), it's a plug-in available through www.redfieldplugins.com. It's a lot of fun--and good for rescuing an image like mine that was less than sharp.

Love your portfolio! Your mind is like, way out there, man!

Cheers, Nancy

Paul Coren , June 03, 2008; 03:33 P.M.

hi Pierre

Thanks for your recent comments on my photos. I am almost embarrassed to reply, as yours is the portfolio of a mature, accomplished and even remarkable artist, while I am yet still beginning.

I will come back and comment on specific pictures, and use them as a source of ideas and ideals for my own work. And any guidance or advice on any photographic subject would be welcome.

All the best,

Paul Coren

i am so glad to see your excellent portfolio. siamak

Marcin Klysewicz , June 11, 2008; 08:55 A.M.

Nice work

I like your experiments but your portraits are best for me - those simple old fashion portraits. You have very interesting ideas and I'm sure people like me will like them but I'm rather sure that some day you'll go for traditional photography again :). Anyway - nice job done and I wish you more original ideas for your photography.

Kind regards

Marcin Klysewicz

Richard Cox , June 11, 2008; 02:56 P.M.

Your portfolio is unique, artsy and creative. I can see this collection hanging in a museum some day. Take care, my friend.

Paul Aver , June 13, 2008; 08:37 P.M.



Thanks for checking out my pics and commenting. I think you have an awesome portfolio with some very original material. I tend to lean toward more standard subjeact and try to process my pics as I would in a traditional darkroom. Lately, I have become intrigued with several artists on Pnet (such as yourself) who have much more edgy and original work. Do not hesitate to tell me what you would do differently with any of my work, as I am always looking to improve. Thanks again, and it was good to "meet" you.


Georgina Jefferson , June 14, 2008; 08:29 P.M.

from the contamination lady

Hi Pierre, Wow, what a portfolio!!!! I am so incredibly jealous. I am very impressed by the quality of your work and if I knew half the photoshop you do I'd die a happy woman. I think I'll leave you in the dark in regards to what the cable is for ... I kinda like to keep people guessing, besides, if I tell you it may spoil things for you. I had so many things going through my head while I was shooting this series, but most of all I was just having a blast messing around with my 4x5 and getting crazy. I have a few more negs that I haven't had scanned since I can't find someone to scan large format without charging me an arm and a leg. It may be easier to reshoot them ... Oh well, loved your folio and your going on my favorites list. Have fun, Catherine

Jorge Luis R. Tagle , June 15, 2008; 02:04 A.M.


Hola Pierre, thanks a lot for your comment on my photo about the butterfly capture and sound funny that butterflys are so fast as the bees however I can tell you that some times Im lucky because some times the butterfly is tired and stay in the same place and I move so slow and actually I try to be so pacient and slow slow moves remember a photographer with out good luck is not a good photographer, thanks for take a time to comment my work congratulations for your exelent work regads Jorge Luis

Benjamin Hicks , June 15, 2008; 04:02 A.M.

I have to say that digital alterations is not my taste, but I am intrigued by your portfolio. I really enjoy it. There is a good variety that showcases your skill and effort.

Thanks for the comment too.

T Yarbrough , June 15, 2008; 12:19 P.M.

What could I possibly say that hasn't been already spoken. Amazing work, you are a master craftsman and artist, and I have been witness to your dedication to helping others; myself included, tirelessly. You are a teacher for us, and work an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your gifts.

Rita Chiliberti , June 15, 2008; 02:59 P.M.

Hi Pierre,

your comment of one of my photo led me to your incredible portfolio. Congratulations for your excellent, artistic and original shots. I'll be back to see more. Ciao.

Thanks again.


Craig Owen Davies , June 19, 2008; 11:49 A.M.

Hey Thanks for the critique, I really love your work, it puts a different light on things (in a positive way) or, it does from the way I'm looking at it anyway.

Thanks again.


Majid Kiasalar , June 19, 2008; 10:38 P.M.

Hi Pierre, thanks for your comment. You're right. The actual artist of that kind of art is someone else. The sculpture is from the Museo Pietro Canonica. So I was there but the Museum was quite tiny and empty. But I saw really peaceful sculptures there that I didn't want to forget them after a second. So I tried to capture it on a Photo as honestly as that art really was. Have a nice day.

Carlos Gonzalez , June 20, 2008; 06:23 P.M.


Excellent Portfolio....sorry it has taken me a year to scroll down to the bottom of your page to comment, haha...you have about 10,000 comments already, but your work in excellent...thanks for all of your comments on my photos as well.

Nataly Rader , June 21, 2008; 11:14 P.M.

First of all thank you for commenting on my photo. I am very glad you did since it brought me here. I guess I am a bit conservative and I have a hard time excepting digitally altered photography... Though viewing your portfolio makes me appreciate and admire this new media. Great work!

Arzu Kilic , June 22, 2008; 05:56 A.M.


Very interseting portfolio...Congratulations...

John LaVere , June 24, 2008; 02:25 P.M.


Thanks for your comments. It is remarkable how diverse one's taste can be while one's work is so individual. It really is not a contradiction at all. I think observant people are bound to express themselves more individually since their observations can only be made through the view of their unique experience. Nice portfolio, I will be trying to do more work that is the result of my mind's eye.

Bartosz Modrzejewski , June 24, 2008; 03:42 P.M.

Hi Pierre you have a very nice and intrestinig portfolio with lots of good idea. I really like the Abstract photos.

Harry Lichtman , June 26, 2008; 08:17 P.M.

Pierre - What a mix of images. You have a wicked creative eye - I'm not sure where you get the ideas for some of the images. Fantastic. I generally let nature try to awe me and I try to capture that moment when it does. You are able to create that moment. Great tallent and imagination.

I am delinquent in leaving a comment here Pierre..........please accept my apology. I have visited your portfolio many times and left no trace. Since eloquence isn't one of my strong suites, suffice it to say that it is very difficult to type on a keyboard when my lower jaw is in the way. Astounding work..........simply astounding. Thank you for your comments/ratings. I consider them high compliments coming from you, an artist. All the best to you!

... dear Pierre, First of all thank you for all of your comments and ratings. But I'm sorry to say that, I don't know any English so my son translates all of the things that you write to me. I'd also like to thank all of you for all of your upcoming comments and ratings. regards.

Rob Wilson , July 05, 2008; 05:25 P.M.


Your portfolio is fascinating! Some super 'traditional' photographs as well as some wild and wacky abstract work!

Great stuff!



Angelo Rossi , July 06, 2008; 06:11 P.M.


It always a pleasure see his own photo (http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=7501965) to receive a good comments/rating but when those are done by a so impressive portfolio owner...it's a sort of inspiration to do better and better. Your portfolio is amazing and you digital tecnique simply perfect. Thank you again. Ciao, Angelo Rossi

Imagenes y animo


(Please, let me know if you can not understand.)

Gracias por opinar en la foto de la palma con la luna.....

Se y confirmo que NO es en absoluto una belleza esa imagen ja,ja,ja,ja... digamos que estaba experimentando nuevamente con la luna, niveles, contraste, angulos..... y se me fue horendamente la iluminacion de la luna...asi como el tamaño...!!! ja,ja,ja...pero.... que mas da...!!!??? tengo peores imagenes..!!! ja,ja,ja...y afortunadamente se encuentran alguans personas (como tu) dispuestas a dar unha palabra o dos con el animo de hacer algo bueno.

Sabes, verifique tu trabajo y me sorprende la variedad de estilos que tienes y que muestras tus ideas basicas y otras muy elaboradas...sin temor a la buena o mala critica (que en este lugar se encuantra facilmente)

Me impresionaron unas imagenes tuyas y otras me parecieron sin fuerza.....pero....analizando en conjunto y despues de leer los comentarios contenidos en ellas...pues solo queda expresar mi admiracion y agradecimiento por el tiempo y corage que tienes para hacer lo que haces.

Puedo "ver" que eres una persona honesta y transparente....que esta por amor a la luz y a la forma....por gusto a la creatividad y al ensayo para la mejora de resultados.

Saludos desde Mexico......Best Regards...!!!

Thank You for commenting my photo.

Andrea Foschi , July 09, 2008; 01:56 P.M.

Hi Pierre, what an interesting stile you have! Half a way between photo and graphic, very shocking and stimulating. I don't know if I like some shots of yours, but truly, they capture my attention. Good job. Andrea

James Gardner , July 10, 2008; 07:12 P.M.

This is the portfolio of a man with a very imaginative mind! They say that Einstein only slept a couple of hours a night because his mind was so active. How well do you sleep, Pierre? (I love your work)

David Meiner , July 10, 2008; 11:03 P.M.

Pierre, thanks for commenting on my Camp Long photo. Wow.... you have such imaginative work here in your portfolio. It's so very interesting to wander around and check out what you have done! I will be back again to see what's new.

Ronda Sliter , July 11, 2008; 01:00 A.M.

Thank you for the comments on my photo. I agree a tad sharper wouldnt have hurt my feelings a bit. She was moving around a lot and hard to capture without branchs and leaves in front of her face I was snapping like crazy! lol

Hi Peter, Thanks for your comments on my IR photos; it is easy to do IR photos, the catch is in post-processing in Photoshop. Cheers, Francois S.

Hi Pierre-Thanks for your kind comments on my "St John Cathedral" and for the record you were dead on right regarding the conditions and how I shot it. I did do a little enhancement in photoshop which I am just learning. Really enjoyed your portfolio. If they gave out Folio ratings I would give yours a 7/7. Thanks again for the input and feel free to jump in anyime, it's always appreciated.--Best Wishes-Jim Tipton

Nancy Barrett , July 15, 2008; 08:55 A.M.

Hey, Pierre, thanks for your "WOW" comment on my image! Your enthusiasm makes up for some of those 3/3's I get sometimes... Have a great day, Nancy

Paolo Fefe' , July 15, 2008; 02:47 P.M.


Nice portofolio Pierre. Full of good ideas well executed. I like your abstract works. Nice to meet you. Paolo P.s tanks for your appreciated comment.

Philip Klinger , July 16, 2008; 11:49 A.M.

Hi Pierre! Thanks for your comment on "The Beauty". It was very difficult to take this photograph because of a slight breeze and the agility of the small butterfly. I was a bit lucky that the butterfly didn't fly away. It took about 30 shots for this one. I'm quite proud of it :-) Btw I like your portfolio very much, a lot of impressive photographs! It was a pleasure to view. Regards, Philip

Michael Lawson , July 16, 2008; 11:51 A.M.

Thank You

Pierre, Thank you for taking the time to both rate and leave a comment of my photo "Reading by the Lake". I appreciate the comments of someone with such creativity as demonstrated by your portfollio. Your work is outstanding.

Andrea Taschin , July 16, 2008; 11:58 A.M.

Dear Pierre thank you very much for rating and suggestions on my photo Violet Carpet. Generally I'm afraid to change the color because I do not have a calibrated monitor, so I apply the scanner profile and aggiust the histograms in the HSL space to aggiust the contrast and luminance by Picture Windows pro (What do you think about this program?). I the case of my photo the bluish component was really visible, thank you again. Other suggestions are welcome I have to improve a lot. An other question if I thouch the color the photo is manipolated or no?

Oldrich Salaba , July 16, 2008; 02:11 P.M.

Dear Pierre,

WOW your portfolio is impressive!!!Thanks for sharing this with us. I came to pay you a visit after your kind words on my photo. I really appreciate your support. You are a wonderful photographer.Best regards Olda from Czech Republic.

john d , July 17, 2008; 07:03 A.M.

Hi Pierre,this is a very impressive portfolio.You sure have an original style! I like it very much! Thanks for sharing your work.Keep at it.


Georgina Jefferson , July 17, 2008; 10:55 A.M.

Thank you

Oh Pierre, You old rating hog you :)

I just took some time looking through your portfolio. I was going to comment on one of your images in the critique forum but there was just too much to say, yet not enough. Your images are so unique it is impossible for me to critique them in my normal way. I think every single viewer will see something different in your creations and that is just as it should be. I love how you tackle profound issues but with a sense of humor. One can find commentary on religion, philosophy, the environment, education, ... depending on one's mindset at the time. Very interesting. I admire someone who is not afraid to do what they want regardless of what others may think and I believe it is your devil may care attitude that causes us to love your work so much. It is whimsical yet very precisely created, perceptive yet humorous, flamboyant yet unpretentious.

In short I greatly appreciate your capability to make me laugh and think and wonder.


Y.R. D. , July 24, 2008; 04:42 A.M.


many thanks for your nice comment, I really appreciate it! Your portfolio is great, so full of fantasy, art, ideas, colors... I will come again to see your photos. ciao gloria

Dan Druta , July 24, 2008; 08:21 P.M.


Pierre, your work is amazing. It's one of those things. I can't describe it, it fascinates me and it keeps bringing me back to your profile. BTW, thanks for your comments on my photos. I know I got small pictures for your taste :-)

Great job!

RE: "Black-eyed Susans"

Bonjour Pierre,

Thanks for your compliments on my "dreamy" image! In fact, it's a free plug-in from Dreamsuite and you can find it at: http://www.autofx.com/freeplugins/dreamyphoto.asp?id=7

I've just started and it's a lot of fun!!

Just about to go on two weeks' vacation in cottage country. Can't wait--lots of photo ops--but I'll be out of reach of photo.net.

Cheers, Nancy

J Kilgo , July 26, 2008; 09:52 A.M.

Pierre, I've seen your name probably a thousand times on other photos, but I'm sorry to admit that this is the first time I've been by to review your portfolio...very interesting & bizarre. You have a funky and irreverent style that is outside the main stream...whatever that is anyway. I really like your PS montage creations...I am envious of your PS skills particularly your masking efforts. Great work and I'll be back more often. Regards, Jeff

Marco Velasco , July 26, 2008; 11:06 A.M.

Hi Pierre

Just for the record my friend, and thank you for your comments and rating, that owl was a wild beast I stumbled upon as he was sitting on a fence in a field sizing up which magpie he was going to have for dinner. I stopped and got several not so good shots off before a passer by scared him. he flew into a tree off a small side road that was about 150 meters away. I walked slowly up to him and got within 10 meters. I think he saw the camera and realized I simply wanted to take his portrait, as he sat there for several minutes before getting bored with me and flying off. Hope you are well. The spider picture was exceptional. All my best-Jim

Ronda Sliter , August 04, 2008; 12:51 P.M.

Thank you

Thank you for your feed back on Rascal The Rat Terrier photo. I will adjust the aperture settings and see how that works on getting it sharper. I have to have a fast shutter speed of course, cause he won't hold still. Thanks agian, Ronda

It´s for my an honor that a digital wizard sees my photos. I´m impressed by your portfolio. Thanks again.


Sigmar Pietsch , August 05, 2008; 01:44 P.M.

Monsieur Dumas, Over the time you have left many comments on my photos, all your comments and ratings are very much appreciated - so, thank you. I duly notice your ability to "look between the pixels" to coin a phrase, that is, to recognize a photo, that may look simple, but required quite a bit of expertise and technical know-how to make it look that way it does. As I said in my Bio "in the final analysis, what they had, (with they I refer to the past masters, i.e. Lange, Bressard, Stieglitz etc etc) and what they had in plentiful abundance was the eye of the photographer. And I think it is that x-quality that separates the great from the mediocre". With that said, and looking through your portfolio, you are doing very very well with that x-quality. Continue with your marvellous work - by all means. Regards - Sig

Evelyne Boisvert , August 08, 2008; 01:52 A.M.

Hi Pierre

I want to thank you for having looked at some of my photos and even commenting and rating them. It is very appreciated! I'm really grateful for the good ratings you have given me!

I looked at your portfolio too, and I am glad I did! I had a very good time doing so. You photos are very unusual and original, and a lot of them look like they must have taken so many hours of PS editing! Not only you're an exceptional photographer, but you're also a great artist. You must have a lot of patience to achieve such impeccable results! I will visit often to see more of your work!

Best regards, Evelyne

Hi Pierre

Thank you for your comments about my photo of Ellie the cat. Having seen your fantastic portfolio I am very grateful for your time and input. If you ever have a spare 5 minutes (which having seen your creative output I doubt!) I would really appreciate any advice you can give me. I haven't been photographing with any serious intent for very long and I appreciate all comments which will take me forward.

Yours in awe of the talent and with greetings from London,

I cannot believe I have been so remiss in checking out your folio more closely. For that I much sincerely apologize. Pierre, your folio is absolutely wild! One of the most creative I've seen in the 2 years that I've been on PN. My Amigos, Chris Harris and Leo Burkey spoke quite highly of you when we were shooting Yosemite last month. Finally had time to really sit back and enjoy what your sharing with us. I gather from some of the comments I read that you departed our site but came back to us. I'm glad because I do so enjoy reading your comments as I surf PN and I do enjoy what you have been commenting about mine also. I promise not to let so much time go by between visit...RAY

Carlos Guaimare , August 14, 2008; 12:40 P.M.

Hi Pierre

Just a question? Why a person of you talent looses time rating my pictures? Seriously I am proud that such a great photographer finds my work interesting. My english is not very good, but I have to say that you are marvellous. I wish I had at least a picture like the ones you have. You have a friend in Venezuela

Friedhofjäger - , August 17, 2008; 06:22 A.M.

Hello Pierre, first I must say a great "Dankeschön" for your comments at my images. Then I must explain you, that my "motif" in my last image "when the musuc is over" is not a motif. It's a simple composition- a skull, a graveyard statue and a texture, and brushes, filters...bla, bla. That's all. Sorry for my bad English. Have a nice day- Joergen

Michael Collier , August 17, 2008; 11:26 A.M.

Pierre, you have such an artistic flare with a unique style of your own. It does draw me in for I feel through your photos you have a story to tell. Isn't that what photography is all about--to capture a story? Your photos are filled with such colors, too. I will keep checking back for I enjoy seeing different approaches to photography. Thanks for you comment on my bird.

Florian Schmidt , September 12, 2008; 05:58 P.M.

Dear Pierre,

Thank you for your (still not yet quite understood) comment on my photo "chairs II". You have a respectable portfolio with many artistic images. Some appeal to me, like the portraits or a few digital paintings, while others do not, simply because I am not a fan of digital alterations. Especially so if the alterations look obviously manipulated and/or digitized, like those you produce using "Filters > Stylize > Extrude".

hamid reza many , September 13, 2008; 12:45 P.M.

Sonny DeLeo , September 23, 2008; 06:10 P.M.

Pierre, I'm almost afraid to ask where you get your inspiration! In the words of Elton John, " it's wierd and it's wonderful..." I love the creativity, in which your skill as an artist, and photographer is stirred, mixed and displayed together ; the results are masterful! There's a lot I can learn here (inspiration for one) so i'll be back! Cheers, <>< Sonny <><

Linda Osborne , September 24, 2008; 01:26 A.M.

Thanks for the comment

Pierre, Thank you for the comment on my flower photo. I know that a picture should be symetricle, but sometime I just shoot outside the box. I like to be out of the ordinary. I looked at your portfolio, WOW! you have some stunning shots, I could learn alot from you. Thanks alot and I will be checking out your stuff more often. Thanks again LInda

Interesting photos, very different :)

Frederick Dunn , September 25, 2008; 04:04 P.M.

Hi Pierre, you're so right!

Thank you for commenting and rating so generously on my portraits and fine are horse portraits...

You mentioned being angry that someone left 3's on the ratings....

This happens on every photo, no matter how good it is... some anonymous rater always throw on 3's as a rating, I just take it in stride and assume they are just angry sorts.

I appreciate your comments always and your work of course, is always top of the heap!

As always, Fred

Kathy B. , September 26, 2008; 12:50 A.M.

Pierre, Simply put: You think outside the box! I like your photographs for that very reason!

Ludmila Espiaube , September 26, 2008; 09:20 A.M.

What an imagination and creativity! Your portfolio is as exuberant and generous as you are (after what I've seen here)! Glad to cross your path in the jungle (for me at the moment) of PN.

David Stevens , October 21, 2008; 09:49 P.M.


Thanks so much for you comment and rating on my latest work. When I stepped into "your world" I was amazed at the variety and power in your own work. It was a bit confusing at first glance, but as I studied more closely the detail and composition of this menagerie of imagination, I found myself being drawn deeper into my own interpretations of each piece. When I had completed my short journey, and stepped back into the real world, I felt as if I had just spent some one on one time with Sigmund Freud.

Keep up the great work, and I hope to hear from you again. I will be back. There is so much more to see here than time permitted this visit.

Thanks for sharing.

Roberto Miotto

Thank you for rating my picture, it is highly encouraging for a beginner to recive a good rating from an experienced (hey I'm not telling you in any way that you are old ;))) artist. Surely I will come back in search of an inspiration here, your style is so different from mine but so modern. Take Care. RM

Matthew T Bowen , November 17, 2008; 07:39 A.M.



Thank you, for your rating and critique. I am a firm believer that if you give a low rating then at least let me know what you would do different and most people don’t do that. When a person such as you leaves a rating and comment or just a comment, I appreciate it. I thank you again.

I took a look at your portfolio and I really enjoyed it thank you for coming back on to the site.

...from your Italian friend!

Xmas, by Luca della Robbia.

Dear friends, the problem if Jesus was God or not, it’s not for me. Only a thing is sure, his word of love and his example of life are good for all, without differences of religion, even for the atheists. All you know, from many centuries, in a lot of old cultures, in this period of the hear, people celebrated festivities and propitiatory rites: in the moment in which Sun was on the most law point of the horizon and was for starting again, slowly, to go up. This thing was also in the old Roman calendar. Christianity didn’t make other thing that “to transplant” the presumed anniversary of Christ’s birthday in the day devoted to the Sun. And this is just the rebirth of the Sun of Love that I wish to all you, my dear friends of PN, to you, to me who, loving photography, we need in our soul, in our passion, for our art,…LIGHT! We all, all over the world, are crossing a very difficult moment. Like many other persons, I think, considering the way without return mankind was undertaking, it’s necessary a big act of love towards ourselves, all, one towards the other and, towards this our big…”spaceship” named Earth! Warm Regads, my friends, from…Ciaomau!

Jose Ignacio Saez de Ugarte , December 20, 2008; 06:22 A.M.

Vadim Arshavsky , February 04, 2009; 06:10 P.M.

Hi Pierre, Thank you for your visits and comments. Your recent note on my "three brothers" is the coolest I ever seen on any of my pics. You have a great imaginative portfolio and an equally great sense of humor. I see a huge heart behind you mean look on your portal :). Without you PN would be a half of a fun place it is. Best regards, Vadim

Navid sohi , February 07, 2009; 11:48 A.M.

Very original and Colorful. Excellent works.

Charles Miller , February 08, 2009; 08:48 A.M.

Pierre, Thank you for your recent comment an my sht "Sunny Face." I t was an honor visiting your site, I have noticed several of your shot previously but had never made the leap to see the whole portfolio. You certainly are a master of Photoshop, but your regular photos are also masterful, I wouldn't know wher to start with comments. One picture that caught my eye was the white fish. There is a very nice quality about the fish that reminds me of some I have had over the years, but it is also an unusual look because of the coloring. I am just starting to work in phoography and photoshop and can only hope the be able to acheive a small part of what you can do. That being said, I invite you to tour my site and to comment on any of the shots you see that catch your eye - good or bad. Thanks, Charles

Charles Miller , February 08, 2009; 11:44 P.M.

Pierre, Thank you for taking the time to comment on the various pictures on my site. The comments are quite helpful. The industrial Indian Blanket and other shots were a very early try on my part to work with Photoshop and I think for the most part they were successful. I am sure you could tell the original image they all were generated from, which didn't give me a lot to go from. Yes, the trellis is in my back yard so it should have a winter home feel to it. I appreciate your time and hope you will visit more of my shots. -- Charles

Andrei Barbu , February 10, 2009; 03:33 A.M.

Gary Grubb , February 22, 2009; 10:54 P.M.


Pierre, thank you for your kind words on my image "TAILGATING". I try to always have a look at the portfolios of each person that remarks on my work. Having now looked at yours there is not much more to say other than...spectacular work. Your use of color and shapes is marvelous. And I'm quite envious of your Photoshop skills. I'm 62 years old and know literally nothing of how to use PS. I have learned enough of Nikon Capture NX2 to get by. Oh how I wish I had the time to learn as you have. Or...on the other hand, it would be wonderful if someone printed a PS learning manual that I could understand. My "TAILGATING" was not altered in any way other than use of levels and curves in Capture NX2...plus a tad of sharpening. I shall visit your portfolio often. Regards, Gary in Salt Lake City, UT USA

Charles Miller , February 23, 2009; 09:08 A.M.

Pierre, Nice hearing from you again. Thanks for the comments on "A River Runs Through." It does have a sad feeling, probably because it was a gray overcasst day. I have created a couple new pieces that are similar to some of your work and would love to have your comments. They are in my abstract forlder. Keep up the good work. I see your pieces all the time but am never sure exactly what to say, some of them are well done just not my cup of tea. Thanks again -- Charles

Hello Pierre, How do I find your entire portfolio?? A= interesting or B= inspiring or C= highly entertaining. Clearly the answer is all of the above. For some reason I am very drawn to the photo of the water with the ramp leading to a small building and you can see through it. The man in the boat is also a great touch. I'll have to back and rate that one. What brought me to your portfolio was your comment on one of my photos. Thank you for taking the time to look. I'll be back, soon!

Sincerely, Holger

Thnx Great Dear Duma first thank u very much for commenting on my photo. Your great inspiration will lead me to future success. I have visited your photos - Really amazing !!! I have many many things to learn from you. Pray for e to be one of the best one. Best wishes to you and Your photos.

Pierre Dumas , February 14, 2007; 10:57 P.M. (edit | delete)

I will Muinul, I will! Which God to pray to, Jehovah, Allah, Jesus or Buddha? It's all the same to me, but I don't know is it for you. There is one God I think and He doesn't have a name. About believers I think they should be all true believers, act by God's will, respect and love each other, help each other and accept the differences in cultures, religions, nations and races!

God bless you Muinul!


G Dii , May 26, 2007; 06:38 A.M. (edit | delete)


> Which God to pray to, Jehovah, Allah, Jesus or Buddha? It's all the same to me,

I don't know about Jehovah, but Jesus was a human being who became Christ when 30 years old. What followed is written in the four Gospels.

Buddha was not a God and didn't want any worship. Buddhism is a philsophy without any Gods.

Allah is another name of the one and only [old] God; Heinrich Heine and Friedrich Nietzsche (FN) believed the old God is dead.

Long, verily, should we have to wait until some one re-awoke thy God for thee. For that old God liveth no more: he is indeed dead."- Thus spake Zarathustra. -- quote FN Humankind was left alone with Christ's instructions: When you are praying, you say: The Lord's Prayer.

There is a huge variety of themes which I can look and learn from here. I liked the Paintings from photos section a lot, not because of the effect really but it is a great selection of base photos on which this simple (or not) effect works. Thanks Again Budha

Livia Balázs , November 19, 2009; 10:45 A.M.

Hello Pierre, I found your portfoilo yesterday...and it inspirated me to make clean folders at my gallery on my computer. You do a nice art of photo editing, which gaves you almost endless possibilities to make new and new pictures. Some of your eyestuff I really like...even i was imaging them on my wall. But I like more the photos when the photo is needed to make in an axact moment...i mean this morning I went to have a cigarette to the balcony... the bird were posing to me...I sad ok, I go to pee, and then I ´ll take a picture...also I left the door open...But somehow iI forgot what I wanted to do when I came to my room...Later i went back to see if the birds are still posing nice...i lost the magic moment. So for me, what you do is far away, maybe just because i rather experience when my model and my camera are available together. good luck Livia

George Nowosad , December 09, 2009; 08:32 A.M.

Dear Pierre

The greatest gift I have ever given myself is my membership to Photo.net. Not only am I learning more about photography (and hopefully becoming a better photographer), but it has allowed me to meet such a wonderful community of people. To all my friends who have helped me, consoled me, praised or criticized me, and above all inspired me……I offer thanks to all of you for playing such an important role in my life and therefore my happiness. I send you all warm greetings for a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year! I look forward to many more interactions with you in 2010.

Dear Pierre! what a nice surprise :) I must confess that Santa has brought me a new house that we have just moved in on ChE. (first in my life house), that occupies my brain and I am not very photo/net active at the moment. Wishing you "The best of" photos this Year, good health and all you want. CF

Chris March , January 04, 2010; 04:35 P.M.

Pierre, after viewing your portfolio I think that you do not make real photos but you actually paint your own pictures with your photographs. 3 "i"s: inspiring, interesting, impressive.

Azad Hassan , January 04, 2010; 04:40 P.M.


Pierre, Thanks for the rating on my picture. I am glad that there are still few people around who would rate honestly and openly without anonymously rating 3/3. It is really very annoying that many people like to do that nowadays just to keep other’s rating low while beefing up their own rating through their friends. I have only noticed this in the past few years and so I don’t bother putting anything for critique at all.

I checked your portfolio and I must tell you that I really like all your themes. If you have a chance then I would appreciate some kind words on my portfolio.

Apurva Madia , January 06, 2010; 07:55 A.M.

A Happy New Year to you Too! Thanks, Apurva

Steven Richardson , January 06, 2010; 12:56 P.M.

La multi ani!

Fireworks (31 dec. 2009)

Dear Pierre,

I just saw your Christmas card and good wishes and quickly payed you a visit back, to thank you for your greetings. I've been on a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve holiday, where I took a lot of pictures. I hope to put the best of them soon on my portofolio.

My computer was heavily damaged, so it took me 2 weeks to repair it and replace more than 3/4 of its components.

I found your portofolio enriched with wonderful, stunning pictures, for which you deserve the best congratulations ever! :-)

With all my love,


P.S. "La multi ani!" is the Romanian for "Happy New Year!" :-D

Fotinos Katsaounis , January 31, 2010; 06:55 A.M.

Dear Pierre,

I was absent for quite a long time (fed up by the community here, alas... so many great images - I started to doubt about my abilities etc.) and didn't notice "in time" your e-card for the New Year. Anyway, as this is the first month of this promising year, the time limit for the wishes-exchange has not yet expired - so we think, say and act in Greece, this means the first month is dedicated to fire and shoot wishes against each other for (renewed) happiness, all the best etc. Thank you very much for your e-card, which added some decor to my portfolio. Thank you that you remembered me (that's important because the site is so much crowded by talented and remarkable- therefore altering and seducing the memory- people, that the memory function of the human brain is compared to that of a goldfish. It lasts only four seconds. This happens in New York too, you know). Have a nice and creative year (wishing to you with all my heart)! And now I'm going to rate and comment some of your images, not because I feel obliged, but only because I find them interesting!

Adrian Cendana , February 02, 2010; 10:03 A.M.

Hello Pierre,

Thanks for commenting on my photo :) Btw, Great pictures you have.. Congrats! tc!

Robert Coney , February 02, 2010; 09:14 P.M.


Mr. Dumas- I have been raising teenage boys, so very distracted. I enjoy stopping by your work. Most original.

Pierre - Thought I would check out your portfolio - thanks for compliment on my willow tree. Well, all I can say is 'wow!' Your work is incredible. Very interesting images throughout. Congratulations on achieving this high level and very unique style. -Jim

Maria Tadic , February 06, 2010; 10:05 A.M.

Hey ho PIerre

Thank you very much for your kind words :) I've forgot to enter here from the moment my subscription stopped - I couldn't put more pictures and forgot of it.. I hope I'll repay again soon.. struggling up with some graphic solutions for business cards I'm entitled to, I am sharping my sense for position of detail on my pics..

Yet without a camera.. my Canon powershoot have a problem with too much exposed pics and some lines of dead pix's.. so sometimes I grab others people's camera and shoot smth.. Znam znam.. prosli su i Bozici i svi praznici ali eto nije na odmet pozeljeti divne dane i mnogo vise inspiracije u radu ka boljitku zivota :)

Pozdrav :)

Lombard Bruno , February 11, 2010; 07:41 A.M.

Hello Pierre ! Your photographies are a source of inspiration. Each image is a world and each treatment is special. I like the vision you have on the world and it is very artistic, optimistic one ! Amicalement Bruno

Merci Pierre! Thank you for the very kind words on a couple of my photos. I'm glad you like them and I appreciate that you took the time to comment.

But WOW!!!! It gave me a chance to see your own incredible galleries! Your best rated stuff is just blowing me away. I'm in a rush now (got a shoot at the studio in a couple of hours) but I will come back and take a much more careful and leisurely look at your stuff.

Best regards...

Thanks for sharing your creation

Most of us mortals are lucky to catch a good representation of what happening right in front of us. Then there're folks like the non-French Pierre who catches what happening in his minds eyes. And what a pair of sharp eyes he got there! I just appreciate his generosity to share his creations with me. Thanks!

William Staniforth , March 14, 2010; 12:30 P.M.

I wish I hadn't looked at your Portfolio ! It took up too much of my time ! Seriously , it is a fascinating collection of work and I can't but admire your skill and imagination . Bill

Aleksey Toritsyn , March 16, 2010; 10:41 P.M.

Pierre! Your works are amazing! You have the perfect imagination. Regards. Aleksey.

Alec Tomasso , March 17, 2010; 11:23 A.M.

Pierre, your imagination and artistic talent boggles my mind, if I look at a blank canvas all I see is canvas, whereas you see whole worlds... Unbelievable!

Johny Alives , March 20, 2010; 02:03 P.M.

awsome works of art

Pierre I am glad you commented on one of my latest creations because otherwise I may not have discovered you. Your work is very original which is hard to find these days. No imitation of anyone that I have seen. You truly do your own stuff. Do you exhibit anywhere right now? Just curious. You do have a very EURO flavor in your work ... myself being European, I seem to be drawn to works like yours....

TRES BIEN MON AMI.... I will have to come back and look at them again to be inspired .... not to immitate but to have my imagination sparked .....

Johny Alives

Bill Evans , April 02, 2010; 10:35 A.M.

I've been absent from photo.net for awhile, and getting back into it I'm reminded of how much your work blows me away - it opens the mind, stretches the imagination, challenges life's absurdities, and often makes me simply laugh out loud. Thanks for all of the above. Bill

Bill Evans , April 02, 2010; 10:57 A.M.

P.S. It's me again.

An afterthought to my words above. It's hard to pick my favorite from your portfolio, but forcing myself to try, my vote would go to "Living In Harmony." The Eagle's look reminds me of all the wonderful dogs I've counted among my close friends. It is a look they all had in common as they observed humans punctuated with a question mark: WHAT THE F--K???

Jason Murphree , April 02, 2010; 04:28 P.M.


Thank you for your critique and suggestions. I will certainly take them into consideration. I like your images very much and will be back to view your portfolio in the future.

Amazing portfolio, very creative and original pictures

Jesus Castrillo , May 17, 2010; 04:13 A.M.

Magnifico portfolio. Tu capacidad creativa es asombrosa. Un saludo y gracias por compartir tu trabajo

Suzi McGregor , May 20, 2010; 10:58 P.M.

Hi Pierre,  I love that you named yourself.  I always wanted a middle name, I should just choose one.  How about Suzi Mas Moore McGregor?  Translates into Suzi Moore Moore McGregor.  I agree with you about the ratings, yet I keep putting up photos that I'm sure will be well received and someone out there in the etherspace rates it a 3 or 4.  I'm rambling.  What I want to ask you is about possibly including some of your work in a new book I'm putting together about new frontiers in photography.  The pay is zilch, but your name will be there plus a plug in a resource guide at the back of the book.  I'm interested in using some of your manipulated images plus a photo and statement about yourself and work.  You'll take up two to three pages maximum.  Let me know.  Regards, Suzi McGregor

Pierre, i really like your folio, with a weakness for the "highest rating" gallery. great work

Lisa Te Raki , June 12, 2010; 08:50 A.M.


I like that you have captured the 'realness' of the animals and nature, the colour and light is well balanced - they are all really nice shots that you have taken, congratulations and well done!


Diane Watson , June 13, 2010; 12:56 A.M.

It took forever to scroll down to the bottom of your portfolio, lots of great comments,  now I will add mine;  You have a great imagination for creating something very different.  After going through your portfolio I know I will have to come back again and again to pick up on things I miss from the time before.  Lots of little surprises in each of your photos.  My hat is off to you for thinking outside the box. 

Antonio F , June 25, 2010; 08:08 A.M.


Terrific portfolio.

High professional and artistic pictures

There is a fresh, modernistic vision through all your work and it is matched perfectly by your processing style.

Impressive work, Thanks for commenting on mine, I will be visiting often.

One of the Rare Portfolios

Incredible array of images here.  It's hard to pick out on to comment on without repeating it on nearly every other photo.  So I thought best to summarize here: Well done.

Wow!!! I can only hope to ever gain as many comments as you...hahaha!!! Pierre, Thank you for commenting on my photo of the car bumper. That was very nice of you especially after looking at your portfolio. Mine must seem a bit boring. Haha!!! You have a VERY spectacular porfolio...very interesting to say the least. Well, again thank you. Cheers, Shauna Boardman.

pauline fowler , August 01, 2010; 09:51 A.M.

Good gracious!!!

This is the most fab portfolio of pictures I have seen so far....and you said a nice thing about my little pic of hover flies.....had to have a celebratory cup of tea!!!

I wanted to say something clever and erudite about one of your pictures but couldn't choose between them ....so I shall just have another browse instead....

( Do love the conker picture!!! )

Hi Pierre,

Thanks for taking the time to critique my photo. Sincerely appreciate it. I looked at your portfolio. Outstanding! Hopefully, some day I will get to that level. regards, murali

Marko Airismeri , August 11, 2010; 07:47 A.M.

Thanks for your time...

First... You must be supernatural alien or something, because there's no human being that can imagine all of that.

Second... what kind of deal you have made with time or someone who controls the time, because it doesn't make difference if you sleep or not, there's no human being that can use so much time with computer.

Third... I could understand all of this if you are making your living by doing these creations.

Ray Brizzi , August 12, 2010; 05:50 A.M.


I can't figure out if it's that you comment on every picture in the forum or that we have very similar taste. But I would say that you've already commented on 75 percent of the pictures that catch my eye in the critique forums. And you also have made many nice comments on my own pictures, though there's no comparison in our expertise in photography, so I appreciate it even more.

Adrian Cendana , August 14, 2010; 05:56 A.M.


Once again, thank you for your kind comments on two of my photos. Really appreciate it.

I've went through your gallery once again. You have a shall I say extreme imagination... Your photos are striking and opens the mind to another dimension. Amazing!

Keep the imagination going :)

Take care!

Salvador Penaloza , August 14, 2010; 11:27 A.M.

Hi amigo , I want to thank for the kind comment on my shot and at the same time , I take the opportunity  to admire one more time your wonderful and excellent port . Best and warm regards // Salvador

Beautiful variations

Thank you for your comment on my flower photography.Your portfolio is vast,full with new concepts and reflects ages of experience... you are a "vivid futurist"

DL Anderson , August 17, 2010; 01:00 A.M.

I want to thank you Pierre for your recent rating on one of my images.  Upon perusal of your portfolio, I was somewhat amazed at your noticing my more mundane work.  You are certainly an artist of high caliber, but more aligned surrealistically overall.  I see work that would challenge the best of Salvador Dali.  I honor your rating and will continue to check back on the growth of your portfolio as well.


Ana Stipanic , August 17, 2010; 03:01 A.M.

Thank you SO much for your support. Cheers, Ana

Thanks again - I look forward to seeing more of your work as time goes by.  Cheers

paul langereis , September 02, 2010; 03:27 A.M.

Piere, thank you so much for all the positive input into the images in my portfolio you have viewed.  On reading your biography again, I have to admit that I like your story about how the ratings etc. can twist one.  I totally understand where you are coming from, although I post what i like, and if the ratings are only so-so, then that is okay.  I figure as long as I am happy with my work, what could be wrong.  That is not to say that I will not listen to advice on my images from others on this site.  There has been lots of good advice!  Anyway, thanks again for the positive vibe.  Your work is truly inspiring, especially the composite work.  I have just begun to play with Photoshop.  Take care my friend.


Jon Ess , September 03, 2010; 12:08 A.M.

Pierre, thanks for your comments on my photos. I really appreciate it! You have some great work here; I will have to come back to your portfolio and spend some more time with it.  I'm pretty impressed with your photoshop/compositing skills as well...hopefully I will get to that level some day.

Volker Birke , December 14, 2010; 01:28 P.M.

Re "The Eagle has landed..."

Hello Pierre,

Just FYI regarding the photo of Harry Tsappas: it is a "Transall", i.e., a military transport aircraft developed by a consortium of French and German aircraft manufacturers in the 1960s being still in service in both airforces (although both French and German airforce will get its successor built by Airbus over the next years). I assume, the aircraft displayed by Harry is part of the so-called "Luftransportgeschwader 62". Their unit emblem is not an "Adler" but a pretty funny, "unhappy" raven called "Hans-Huckebein" (check if you like at Wikipedia "Lufttransportgeschwader 62"). "Hans-Huckebein" was firstly featured in a comic strip published by the German poet Wilhelm Busch in 1867/68.

Thank you for commenting on my photo.

Taking oneself too serious!

Hello Pierre , I find your portfolio both interesting and beautiful. You are a very skilled photographer and artist and this shows in your work. I also find it refreshing that you do not take yourself too serious and perhaps this freedom is also reflected in your work. I will continue to visit your portfolio from time to time for both pleasure and inspiration.

Wonderful portfolio


Your portfolio "Paintings from Photos" is an excellent example of how a cogent body of art can emerge from what might otherwise have been random images. The consistency of theme complements your innate creative abilities.

Wonderful collection!

Chris Harrison , March 20, 2011; 08:44 A.M.

Your work follows a path I am not familiar with and I don't fully understand it but it sure is very personal and original, as well as creative. Taste is a different matter. It shows great understanding and control over both the pure photographic moment and the subsequent post-processing world. Congratulations and thank you for your constant presence on my portfolio. All the best, A.

joa serigado , April 13, 2011; 07:40 A.M.

Great Stuff.

Hi Pierre,

Thanks a lot for your positive comment to my photo.  I've read your biography and completely agree with you about the rating.  It always surprised me how one and the same shot can get ratings from 2 to 7. It so much depends on personal perception and taste.  So it's good that you reloaded your photos with lower rating.



Christine von Diepenbroek , June 23, 2011; 07:50 A.M.

Thanks for the comment Dumas. I really like your gallery, very colorful, and beautiful.

Josep Puigdollers , July 09, 2011; 07:26 A.M.


Amazing work.



Laurentiu Margalin , July 11, 2011; 03:30 A.M.


I admire your presence on PN. and what I saw is an exquisite portfolio, flooded by a huge wave of surrealistic or abstract pictures who are full of meanings. The refined structure of this visual theatre is populated with etheric characters who invite us to see the spectacle. The visual mechanism is radiating an enlightened sense of imagination in symbiosis with art. In presentment, the courtain is never left down. Is more like a good visual reply to the Beckett's experimental theater, but certainly in the presence of Godot because - how I can guess - probably thousands hours of hard work are hidden behind artworks. Regards!

Thanks for your critique Pierre!

Your work is amazing!

Michael F , August 01, 2011; 02:13 A.M.

Thank you for your comment on my first picture Pierre. Not knowing what to expect, I found it very encouraging indeed.

So, naturally I had to come see your work.

The pictures in this portfolio look a lot of hard work, (I have no idea how you do some of those effects) but I am sure you get not only a deep sense of satisfaction from your efforts, but have a lot of fun as well.

A permanent twinkle in your eye, perhaps?




Rajkumar Krishna , August 01, 2011; 08:43 A.M.

Thanks Pierre for your constant encouragement. Amazing portfolio here. Like the abstracts especially. Will keep visiting for some inspiration. Regards

Thank you for the comment on my photo "Pink" - after looking through your work your comment means a lot to me, I appreciate it. I love your artistic touch and you've proven there are no limits to your abilities.

Paul Haase , August 07, 2011; 05:23 A.M.

Sorry It Took So Long

Hi Pierre,


Your consistant comment son my work is fantastic and I really appreciate your thoughts and sentiments. As I cann see so do many otyhers.


I apologise for not commenting on your Pieces of art, this is poor on my behalf, whoever your work is so creative and on such a different level to mine that it is just brilliant and my comments would then be of little value.

Your support means a lot to me and a lot of people as I see here. i will try to learn form your example.





Prasoon Joshi , August 09, 2011; 03:50 A.M.



Yours is one beautiful portfolio with lots of different themes. Cheers! It's a treat to look at your photos.

Thanks for commenting on my work.


Richard John Edwards , August 11, 2011; 07:20 A.M.


Pierre, I am ashamed and embarrassed that after so many wonderful coments from you on my work that I have not taken the time to really look at your work. Well I now have. To that end I humbly apologize and hope you forgive me. First of all I can attest that you are a true gentleman and are an absolute treasure to the art of photography. I see so many influences in your work, yet they stand alone with a signature that is truly unique. I am sure your work will take it's place in photographic history where it belongs. Once again Pierre forgive my arrogance in not com ending your work and for not thanking you for respecting mine. Yours sincerely Richard.

Ian Ward , August 15, 2011; 08:33 A.M.

Hi Pierre

You have a wonderfully creative mind and are not affraid to show it in your work. You have developed a style that says "Pierre Dumas", you should be proud of that and keep true to yourself in your work.

Crativeness is a gift which you are blessed with Pierre, keep up the good work and lets see some more!

Thank you for your frquent visits to my work, I always appreciate your comments.

I am happy to see that your camera isn't tired of ideas and that your conception gets more and more into wheels of light.. I am rarely here but when I think of Photo.net, your face and criticism come in front of my eyes and heart gets chilly :) 

Lovely to be again on your portfolio which amazes me every time I come :) 

Please continue to give chills to your sight ;)

Federico Ubalde , September 16, 2011; 10:59 A.M.

Thanks again Pierre! I appreciate you taking the time to help me understand my shots better. I am a self learned photographer, so my shots are a hit or miss thing. I did notice a Bluish tint here, I may have to recover the full Black & White on this one also. You see, I don't have a darkroom so I am digitizing my old B/W negatives with a little scanner gadget I just bought.

steve Porter , September 29, 2011; 11:56 A.M.

Hola Pierre, viendo tus fotos me he encontrado con imagenes de una gran creatividad, creo que no entiendo todas ellas pero me gustan y el arte como el que tu tienes no es necesario entenderlo, solo hay que disfrutarlo, te animo a que sigas por ese camino. Saludos cordiales. 

Henrik Pyndt Sorensen , October 21, 2011; 05:09 A.M.

Dear Pierre,

Thanks for your kind comment on my "golden fountain". Just as I was starting to believe nobody liked it because the all rated it 3 you came in with a 6.

I like what you state about competition. I think we all strive for high ratings and flattering comments but maybe we should sometimes stick to our own beliefs in what we do. I too was tempted to delete my golden fountain images because they received the lowest ratings I have ever experienced. The worst part is I didn't understand why. Your comment saved my day and I think I will leave them on the folio.

Though I'm more into regular photography it is impossible not to be impressed by your digital alterations.

Kind regards


Ed Francissen , October 23, 2011; 08:33 A.M.


Hallo Pierre (?)

I've just seen all the photo's from your portfolio Paintings of.........

and I must say the most of them are amazing. I don't know how you did it, it's not important but the photo's are wonderful.

I hope to see more of them in the future.



Helge Brandal , October 31, 2011; 07:47 P.M.


In my opinion you have one of the most intresting portfolio on photo.net.

The varity in your work is amazing.

DAVE DISE , November 24, 2011; 10:03 P.M.

Pierre, thanks for commenting on my SPARRING shot - 2 elk with locked antlers. You said it was good technically - which means you really see my biggest problem. I think analytically but not with feeling and inspiration. Your art is full of meaning, feeling, and inspiration. I am trying to develop that side in my photography - it is very slow. Your work helps me try to see in a different way. Thanks for sharing it here as PN. Dave

Any intruction would be most welcome.

Keep bringing more beautiful images ...

Dear Pierre,


Is late better than never?


I'm on a borrowed computer, mine has failed, so my time here on PN has become limited. I had started my "holiday greetings" early in the month, but as my computer begain to fail, I completed fewer & fewer! So, although the month of December is about gone, . . . We wish You & Your's a Prosperous and Happy New Year in 2012!

It's always a joy and interesting journey to visit your Gallery, and to read your comments!


Best wishes, always,

Thank you...

I'm viewing your work, and i'm thinking you are bringing much more to the table then just photography, a pure art and understanding of it. I never new abstract can be such great story telling. You have comment on some of my work, and thank you for your kind words, and show interest in some of them. But when i look at my abstracts and yours, I'm not even a scratch on surface. And your portfolio inspired me to be more creative then now.
Thank you again.

Samuel Golc , August 21, 2012; 06:00 A.M.

Thanks for your comment on my work Pierre. I really enjoyed looking through your portfolio. You've got a real sense of the surreal.

Chris Watts , August 26, 2012; 09:05 A.M.

Your portraits are exquisite, attention holding, dynamic, beautiful, - I never liked portrait photography, mostly because the subject itself has the inherent captivating qualities, but you have gone beyond this and introduced something more in many of them; though others have done some really nice portraits, beautiful ones, it delivers something so much more than the person themselves can give. Absolutely excellent work. It should be in galleries, and people should see this work. I should add that I am also referring to the portraits that are in the other folders as well.

Paul Turton , September 21, 2012; 10:27 A.M.
