Thank you..

Thank you for you comments on my pic...I agree with the centering of the flare,but that was PS'd into the shot, and it lands where it lands. It was actually shot at 8am on an overcast day. Your portfolio is wonderful...keep up the fine work and Happy New Year! Bill

I have just spent half an hour or so going through your folder "in the wake of the Potawatomi". I understand that this is just one of your sides. but commenting just on this particular collection of work, I think it's some of the finest I have seen on photo.net. It is photography of the highest order and I am in awe. Best Regards, Jack

Hi Steve

Thank you for your kind words about regarding my portfolio.I especially enjoyed your series "The Street as a Graphic Novel".

j d.wood , August 08, 2010; 03:38 P.M.

Hi Steve. I am so taken in by your work that sometimes I stop by just to wander through your images and remember why I started on this photographic journey. You are one of the few online photographers that I would enjoy meeting face to face. Your images tell me that. You are a strong visual communicator. and you put out some good reads in words. 

Trisha Jean-Angela , August 11, 2010; 11:09 P.M.

I have really enjoyed browsing through your work and I will be back time and time again I know. Wonderful portfolio! Thank you for sharing. :)

Steve, I've visited a few times...usually when we post on the same thread.  Don't know why I've not said anything earlier.  The coherence of your work, themes (!) that seem related even when superficially quite different, stands out for me.  You do seem to be engaged in essays or novels (as you pointed out) or similar extended performances. I enjoy the distinctive overall look you've chosen...your post-processed color isn't totally unlike your naturalistic blurs or your technically conventional portraits.

John Kelly , June 04, 2011; 11:40 P.M.

A lot of you work would benefit by audio. Music, background chatter, ambient sound. 


I think writing would distract unless it was very concise, just a few lines, like haiku without the Japanese pretense. Longer writing might be good too, if it was allowed to dominate...no more than one or two images keeping it company...as in New Yorker articles.

Beata Bieniak , January 15, 2012; 02:09 A.M.

Great portfolio.

Best regards...

Wolfgang Arnold , June 12, 2012; 03:19 P.M.


your comments to my photos made me curious - your portfolio here (and on your homepage) is truly unique. You have both an "eye" and a "vision" for creating real art.
Best regards, Wolfgang

Drew Bayless , December 12, 2012; 09:24 P.M.

I'm trying to respond in a poetic but in very hard for me because I've had a stoke and a speak or express myself as I would to. But the love your messages, so please keep them coming !!

Pnina Evental , June 15, 2013; 10:48 A.M.


Your dialogue with Maria de Medici portrait , mad me really look at your entire work..so here I'm , telling you that I like so many of your photos , compositions, and your photographic eye!

Steve Gubin , August 24, 2013; 12:58 P.M.

Thank you, Pnina, Drew, and all those who have taken the time to comment. I truly appreciate it.

Landrum Kelly , September 14, 2013; 04:37 P.M.

These are absolutely wonderful, Steve. You are so far out of my league!


Sid Sidney , October 12, 2013; 12:26 P.M.

I really enjoyed your Chicago area photo's, I recognize many of the areas. I didn't realize that Bensenville was so depressed. I haven't been through there for a while. I used to drive down Irving Park past Bensenville on my way to work - many years ago. Excellent street photos.

Steve Gubin , October 21, 2013; 07:57 P.M.

Thank you Landrum and Sid. It does mean something, and is very much appreciated, when someone takes the time to comment. Landrum -- We're in the same league and it's called photography. Thanks, Sid. I'm sure Chicago has changed a lot over the years, yet part of its beauty is that it still seems to retain much of its past, as well as that unique feeling that only Chicago can give.

Diane Hooper , November 21, 2013; 09:34 P.M.

Steve, thanks so much for commenting on my fog and cloud shots. The clouds you have in your Chicago portfolio are wonderful and your processing puts mine to shame! :)

Boris Bugan , June 01, 2014; 04:42 A.M.

Mr Gubin

this is indeed one of best work here on photo.net.
You are in my line of sight.

Drew Bayless , November 14, 2014; 07:59 A.M.

I had a stoke in feb 2007. At the moment I have no voice so cannot speak and as I only have use of one arm, writing is slow and difficult for me.

nebojsa tasic , August 22, 2015; 01:32 P.M.


Many times I browsed through your portfolio, but just now I stop by to pay my respect...one fellow photographer (and a full amateur as me) can learn a lot and gain an inspiration from this exquisite portfolio...
All the best!!!

Hi Steve,
After a few weeks tracing you, I finally had the time to come her and give a proper look to your work. Please accept my compliments to such a distintive work. As for my instint, I especially appreciate your urban captures and I love how you take the viewer to the scene instead of only capturing the scene. Unlike many of us (including myself probably) you don't seem to hang around waiting for a special thing in a special moment to make a special photo... it looks that you just get in the ordinary to make it special.
Count me as a follower.

Steve Gubin , March 24, 2016; 03:41 P.M.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and comment. It is very much appreciated!
