Eddie K , April 26, 2006; 12:40 P.M.

Thank You.

Alpo, Thank you very much for taking your time and rating my photo. I too have two beautiful daughters and I'm also into computers and do some writing. So we all have a thing or two in common with each other. I really enjoyed your portfolio and will come back often. Thanks, Eddie

You have an excellent portfolio.All Photos has such details and composition.Thank you for sharing...Have a good work...

Paul Deans , April 29, 2006; 05:22 P.M.

Hi Alpo

Thanks for your wonderful comments. My 'Daughter' is never going to forgive me for taking photos of her that make her look like chucky and making her look like a 'he'. :0)

Your comments will always be welcome. It's made my wife laugh as well.

Your portfolio is just the kind I like. It has a lot more colour than mine (mainly due to my fascination for B&W) and It has made me think that I should invest more time producing more colourful shots. The truth is, that I find them more difficult. I feel I can control B&W and feel a little in awe of those who know colours and use them in the way that you have.

Well done for your portfolio. Keep up the good work.

Love the puppies.

Katja Faith , May 01, 2006; 03:29 P.M.

Great puppies :)

Thank you very much for the comment on my portfolio! It's great to do something for other people, not only for myself, so I think I can feel kind of satisfied with my work :)) . I like you puppies very much :) !

Have a good day! Katja

Thank you very much for taking the time for critiques. I will learn from artists such as yourself. I especially like your "springtime". I will learn also from viewing wonderful photo's such as yours.

Jan Reurink , May 25, 2006; 06:05 P.M.

Thanks for your comments Alpo;The picture i took from Dawa ,wel Tibet is a bid like a dessert .What it makes a little pastelly is because it is dust in the air.I am not a big fan to alter the pictures because mostly this is what there was.Thanks; Jan

Hello Alpo

Thanks for your appreciation...I have found very nice and interesting photos in your portofolio...particularly the Rock concert serie where I like the lightning very much...It's inspiring to me as I have not touched this area of photography...thanks and greetings from Geneva...

Creative shots

Hi Alpo. Thanks for your comments on my Portfolio ;-) here you have a friend. And now my critiques for yours... let me see, ok, no critiques, just congratulate you for your work. As I see, you really enjoy taking photos, and that is the important, have fun with it. Your childs shots are very good and you have an special "eye" to caught "interesting places and moments".

And now a secret, if I dont use PS my photos are like yours, "FANTASTICS" I mean ;-)))

M.I. Wijngaarde , June 21, 2006; 05:40 A.M.

A lot to learn

I still have a lot to learn but thanks for commentig on my PN portfolio. I'm still at the beginning of thi thing called photography. Looking at your portfolio make sme kind of jealous as it's much more diverse an coves much more "genre", which hopefully I will master one day.

If you have time and feel like it I invite you to visit my personal website for some more work of mine: www.screeny.demon.nl If you feel like dropping comments on it, there is a guestbook.

Dear Alpo, I have just looked at your portfolio again with great interest. I like your images very much, not only because they are lovely to look at, but also because they are filled with love and empathy for life and people. There is a feeling of quiet wisdom and confidence that shines through your work, that turns your portfolio into an oasis of peace and beauty, where I'm certain I will be glad to come back very often. Thank you for sharing with us. Kindest regards, Laurent.

Johanna Mantere , August 14, 2006; 03:10 P.M.

Thanks, Alpo! Nice to hear that you liked them. I was so excited myself, about those shadows and lights playing on the floor -- but I wasn`t sure if they`d seem such interesting in the eyes of other members of PN.

Sophia Douma , August 15, 2006; 02:18 A.M.


You have an excellent porfolio and i specially love the dogs photos,looking the images i can feel how you love them,i love dogs too :)

Eduardo Guerrero , September 12, 2006; 11:33 A.M.

Alpo Thanks for your commens on my picture... you have an excellent portafolio... congrats


Calin Tifor , September 13, 2006; 10:06 A.M.

It will be hard to keep up with high class photographers like you on this site but i'll do my best. Thanks for your appreciation. On my opinion, the "Details from the nature" folder is the most spectacular. Best regards !

Jeanne Hauschild , September 14, 2006; 11:30 A.M.


I thought your name looked familiar when I saw your comment on my "Mud" photo....I had commented on your birds on wire against a goldish/orange background. I checked out the work you did to improve my photo....you really made it much more pleasing! The mud has more orange/brown in it, and the other manipulation added to bring out the mud as the focus. What I had difficulty with was working on just one area, like the gauss on the wheel, and not affecting the spiky grass in the mud! Did you use layers? I hope to one day have your expertise! I enjoyed perusing your portfolio....so many great shots I couldn't pick just one or two to comment on!

Peter Wintergren , September 15, 2006; 08:05 A.M.

Hi Alpo. You have a very nice portfolio here, keep up the good work!

Regards, Peter

J-L Frérotte , September 17, 2006; 10:14 A.M.


I went to visit your portfolio just after giving a low rate to a picture of a mushroom. Unfortunately, this picture was not one of your best, and you have many good pictures. I like specially your single photos and the landscapes. Good work !

J.E. G. , September 25, 2006; 06:55 A.M.


Thank you so much for your comment!
Your portfolio is really gorgeous, I love your macros and the horse-shots. Keep on posting!

Thank You for nice welcoming!

Hi Alpo. Nice to hear about You and realize how small our world is. Krister is one of my best friends here in Vaasa.

And about photography: I really liked Your nature shoots; can You tell me what kind of filters You are using while photographing? I have major problems with photographing clouds or water and I think that filters can be some answer for that.

Ubaldini Maurizio , January 13, 2007; 05:41 A.M.


A Yellow Paradise

Hi Alpo, thanks for the comment on my photo and compliments for yours portfolio... In my shot of the bee and sunflower, i have used a 200mm macro with a teleconverter 1,7x for a total of focal lenght of 340mm,i wanted to be distant from the subject, and have tried this combination,but very difficult to use. Happy 2007 of beautiful photo....

Teresa Au Yeung , January 14, 2007; 09:43 A.M.

Hi Alpo, thanks so much for taking the time to visit my portfolio, I feel indeed honoured. I love your work, especially the landscapes, and of course the animals, they're so adorable!

Great gallery, Alpo, I am glad I found it. We have a fantastic variety of subjects and themes but, somehow, leave your fingerprint in all of them. Wish I could do the same. I shall be back often. Greetings from Portugal.

Blessings, Johanna

Pavle Marjanovic , February 06, 2007; 03:07 A.M.

Bravo, maestro!

Johanna Mantere , February 07, 2007; 04:22 P.M.

Kiitos Alpo!

Olipa hauskaa kun ehdit kertoilla itsestasi ja ajatuksistasi noin pitkasti:) Olen otettu siita etta tykkaat tyylistani niin paljon (onpa muuten hassua kirjoittaa pelkkia a-kirjaimia)! Kuulostaa silta etta olemme hyvin samanhenkisia ihmisia. On erikoista ja hauskaa, etta vaikka en edes tunne sinua, vaikutat jo tutulta silla tiedan meidan jakavan uskon ja samalla varmaankin myos samantapaiset arvot ja maailmankuvat.

Harmi ettet ehtinyt kuulla Teria kunnolla, mutta on todennakoista etta kuulet hanta joskus tulevaisuudessa - jos vaikka menet helsingin evankelisille musamessuille tana vuonna. Muitakin keikkoja on tulossa, sita enemman mita useammat uudet ihmiset kuulevat hanta. Ainakin nailla nakymin hanen tulevaisuutensa gospelmusiikin parissa vaikuttaa siis lupaavalta:)Han ei itse asiassa paatynyt MN-festareille sen kilpailun kautta, hanelle vain soitettiin ja pyydettiin tulemaan. Ilmeisesti kilpailun voittaja ei paassyt tai sitten kilpailussa ei vain ollut yhta hyvaa soittajaa, emme saaneet tietaa syyta..Joka tapauksessa Teri soitti mielellaan, kuten aina.

Olen iloinen ja ihmeissani siita etta kuvistani ilmeisesti todella valittyy juuri sellaisia tunnelmia joita olen halunnutkin valittaa. En ole halunnut selitella kuvien merkityksia liikaa, jotta katselijalle jaisi tilaa omaan tulkintaan, mutta harva silti kertoo yhta tarkasti kuin sina muista seikoista kuin teknisista puutteista tai ansioista. Silloin jaa arvoitukseksi onko itselleni kaikkein tarkein tavoite saavutettu. Eli kiitos viel䠰aljon kannustuksestasi! Se on arvokasta ja rohkaisevaa kuultavaa. Juuri aitoja tunnelmia ja tunteita olen pyrkinyt kuvissani ilmaisemaan.

Viela lopuksi kunnianosoitus omalle portfoliollesi, se on hyvin vaikuttava! Siita huomaa etta olet harrastanut valokuvausta pitkaan, ja etta sinulla on silmaa seka taiteellisille ja voimakkaille etta humoristisille ilmioille. Palaan pian katsastamaan tilanteen uudestaan!

Siunauksia ja inspiraatiota valokuvaukseen - ja muuhunkin elamaan.


Mert TURKOGLU , February 11, 2007; 05:24 P.M.


Alpo you have an incredible portfolio. Thanks for your rating my photo. I'll be waiting for your new works. Hoping to see them soon. Best Regards, Mert TURKOGLU

Hi Alpo!

I just had a look at your portfolio. You have done some outstanding work. I love your animal shots. I especially love your dogs. I owned a Samoyd many years ago, and have a little Yorkie, so you really hit a soft spot with me. I look forward to seeing more.

Best Regards,

Beautiful and original portofolio ...real art ..real artist i will come back with plasure

Glenn Norris , March 12, 2007; 01:10 P.M.

Alpo, you have a hugely diverse portfolio, every image classic photography in the best way. You seem to keep things very simple and just concentrate on using the camera well. Thank you for dropping by my portfolio... yes, you caught me in the middle of deleting my posts after the 3/3'ers nailed them. I am confident enough in my skills to know that I do not deserve those ratings so if I happen to post at a time of day when a couple of 3/3 trolls are hanging about, I just delete and try again another time. Photo.net is a valuable tool for me but I wish we did not have to put up with these annoying characters. I will add the images to my portfolio when I am home from work and post again later perhaps... I appreciate that you took the time to talk about this and I wish you the very best - Glenn++++

Pankaj Purohit , March 13, 2007; 04:25 A.M.

Very nice portfolio. Good routien shots with some terrefic picks. Saturations is realy very good.

Hei Alpo! En tied䠭uistatko minua en䤠v䬴t䭤tt䬠tavattiin Ristirockissa viime elokuussa. Kuvasin nettisivulle www.hihhuli.net silloin filmikameralla, Canon Eos 300V:lla. K䶩n just eilen Rajalakamerassa ostamassa Canonin 300D:n. Oletko kenties myym䳳䠵lkoista salamaa? Olisin kiinnostunut ostamaan. Pist䠥mailia. T Auli Koskela

Mark Evans , March 27, 2007; 02:57 P.M.

Hi Alpo. Thanks for your comments and interest in my portfolio. Yes I do see why some of my pictures would interest you :) and I have to say I love your "visits in the stables" section .

Having said that.. you are not just a humour or gimick photographer. Your landscapes are beautifully composed and show a great level of competance. I a glad I came and looked. I will be back :)

Alpo: Thank you for your comments on my Wave. Your Portfolio is impressive, I especially like "Details of Nature". John Math

Daniel Veratti , April 03, 2007; 01:14 P.M.


I have taken a proper look in your portifolio, there are stunning photos. I loved the image titled "A Yellow Drop" in the macro section. The section "Details from the Nature" is simply stunning, and, as soon as i saw it, i wanted to travel and discover things that i have never layed my eyes on.



Iren Nagy , April 07, 2007; 12:22 P.M.


Wow, did I stumble in to a beautiful portfolio! I really like your work. Thanks for sharing~ greetings from Vancouver Island, Canada, Iren

Matthijs Jonker , April 12, 2007; 03:12 A.M.

Thomas Holzer , April 12, 2007; 03:16 A.M.

Hi Alpo!

Thanks for your comment on my winter pictures. You got some nice photos here especially the B&W pictures are great.

Hope you'll visit my page from time to time.

Andreas Fuecker , April 22, 2007; 05:37 P.M.

There's not one picture in your portfolio i don't like, but with your macro photography i'm really impressed! Would you mind telling me how you do that? Kiitos! Terv.:Andreas

Johanna Mantere , April 29, 2007; 06:25 A.M.

Hi! And thanks a lot, again:) We were at It䧯spel yesterday (Teri had a gig there) but we`re not coming to Vappugospel:( I didn`t even know about that kind of happening..you`re going, i guess?

Irit Ka , April 29, 2007; 02:20 P.M.

Very nice landscapes and great capture of details in nature! The B&W folder include very special frames.

Thanks! Irit

Abilio I.G. , May 10, 2007; 10:48 A.M.

Hi Alpo,

I was reading your additional comments on your recent post (Hidden and yet Visible) and those you left on my page (thanks for those kind comments). I like your landscapes quite a bit. They are clean and crisp, and I find that attractive. You have a very large collection and they deserve a more detailed and tranquil visit. Warm regards,


Don Lally , May 19, 2007; 04:45 P.M.

Hey Alpo,

Great portfolio. I like the details of nature folder. Alot of people are trying to go for the big landscape shots, and miss these details. I also thought your concert shots were great. I've been wanting to go take some myself. And thanks for your coments on my portfolio.

Alpo, you are so kind to take the time to see my pictures and comment. I really like the one you left on the 4 leaf clover!

I took the time to go through your portfolio - all of it - and I am amazed at what you can do with the camera. Each picture seems to have a story to it, and I love guessing what they are!

Many thanks always, Liz.

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


Leslie Battjes , December 14, 2007; 07:21 P.M.

Hi, Alpo. Just stopped by to check out your portfolio after your recent comment on one of my plasma ball shots. I appreciated your visit, and I've enjoyed browsing through your work. My favorite folder overall is your landscape folder. All of your work is really nice, but your landscapes are truly gorgeous! :)

Moi Alpo!

Toivottelen oikein hyvaa Uutta Vuotta 2009.

Sinulla on todella hyva salkku ( niin kai se suomeksi sanotaan?). Erityisesti pidan jarvimaisemistasi ja naureskelen vapautuneesti humoristisille lehmanturpakuvillesi. Kesaisin Viitasaaren ohi ajaessani kohti Kuusamoa muistan aina Sinut ja kuvasi.

Alpo, you have an excellent collection of wide variety of subjects. I wish to extend my congratulations and continued success in your efforts to produce great images.

All the very best.
