That is just magnificent on so many levels. Composition (especially!). Impact. Emotion. What I will always call "print quality," even on a monitor. Wow.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

isn't that great? ernst is the ONLY photographer on any of these forums that I would actually buy and hang one of their works. If I lived up near Port Angeles, or even within 100 miles I would be in the poor house in less than a month. It's pure classic old school photography.
There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.

That is truly wonderful. I live far from Washington, but long been intrigued with Northwest coastal native culture, so I recognized the hat before I read the caption. How great that they bring their regalia! Carved masks too, I would suspect, and other items.

But the image itself is simply classic. It makes me feel like a fumbling idiot when I see this kind of quality - the composition, the detail, the lighting, the tones, the character are all perfect. Thank you for continuing to inspire.

Thanks all for the comments, I truly appreciate it! I'm more excited today about photography than I ever was, which has been for alittle over 40 years now. I love the History of Photography and it inspires me everyday. Right now I'm reading and studying the book "The Search for a Masters Legacy" by Mehmed Ali. Yousuf Karsh's mentor John Garo.

Oh, Am a huge fan of Edward Curtis's work. He created that largest personal body of work that any photographer ever did, The Native American.

Best regards, Ernst

Super cool photograph, Ernst. Along with all that's been written so far.
