Neil 25-Jul-2009 22:22
A fine gallery. Stumbled on it through sNeilearching your name after receiving a Niagra Falls Powerpoint (2004) today. Not sure if you did the powerpoint or someone used your pictures. A friend asked me if I knew the music on the powerpoint; thus, began my search. You are a fine photographer and one with imagination which is even better. Cheers, Neil
Murray H 29-Jun-2009 20:30
As usual, another great gallery Michael.
I still think one of your best was the colorful grafetti in the abandoned factory.

Chupis 28-Jun-2009 01:59
the photo of the homeless man and his dog napping is one of my all time favorite photos. I've had that photo for years. Thanks for sharing that photo with all of us.

you have a great talent my friend.
Guest 10-Jun-2009 20:31
Love your work, fantastic collection of images you have here! I'll no doubt be back. Inspiring!
Richard Wiehe 04-Jun-2009 19:12

I stumbled upon your fantastic images during a stock photography search for a project I am currently working on.

I am looking to purchase a ground level street perspective containing an avenue of shops in older buildings. The idea is to create the feel that a person is walking down this interesting street scene. It can be empty or with people, as long as it contains intriguing architecture, lighting and color.

Your “Quebec City, Petit Champlain” image is quite close to what I am looking for. Could you help direct me to other images which fit this description, or perhaps some you may have which are not posted on-line, but which you would still consider selling.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Robert D. McAlpine29-May-2009 02:12
I am so glad I discovered your galleries. They are beautiful - true works of art - I will be back!

Guest 11-Jan-2007 01:54
Thanks for your comments on my Monteverde fern. I wish I could go back to recompose the shot, but moving so the other vine won't show would also move the background spread, which is what I liked - having both the new fern and the fully 'flowered' fern in the same shot.
First I used Lightroom to crop and bring out the blacks and added some luminance to the red. This can be seen here

Second update was to take the Lightroom version into Photoshop and soften the background using Blur tool, then smudged it a bit along with the vine in the lower right corner. Then I dodged the light areas of the background. I thought I liked the vine in the bottom right, esp. with the moss tendril creeping around it. Hmmm. The second version is posted here

What we are looking for are Toronto images with people in the main streets, maybe having a cup of coffee, walking, etc.

We would be very grateful for all the support to make this effort possible.
I look forward to receive your answer.

Best regards,

Víctor Romero M.

Pleased to meet you Michael, even if it's only in a cyber sort of way.:) Thanks for visiting and commenting on my galleries. You have a real fine collection of work yourself. I've added you to my favorites list as I think we share a common photographic sensibility/vision. I'll be back soon when I've got more time to spend looking.

Michael, thank you for kind comments about my pictures. It's a pleasure to share them with people who love photography. As per your questions I use Panasonic Lumix FZ10 digital camera . I do not use tripod for most time, but some shots, particularly nigh shots and low light shots are definitely require use of it. The sharpness of the pictures is the result of magnificent Leica lens that Panasonic uses for this camera with 12x optical zoom and optical image stabilisation.

All your pictures are so nice, they're like an inspiration to me. Thank you for sharing them. What camera did you used to take all those wonderful pictures (if you don't mind me asking)? Do you use a tripod most of the time? I noticed there are no blur pictures in your gallery, every single one of them are sharp & focus.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for visiting my avilon zoo photo gallery.

You have excellent shots here. I liked very much your water drops gallery and actually tried your how-to guide on shooting the water drops, although I still could not achieve the same result as in your gallery (probably due to the lighting). Anyway, I will keep on trying.

I also love your Toronto shots, it brings back good memories while I was there last year visiting relatives.

Keep up the good (actually excellent) work! I will definitely be visiting your gallery regularly.

Best regards,
Michael Shpuntov21-Apr-2005 18:56

Thank you for the kind comments. I did not use any special technique, but if you want to find out more details about catching these drops, thay outlined in this online manual. The creator ot this manual asked me if he can use it.
Jim21-Apr-2005 17:56
Your pictures are wonderful.
I am wondering how you took the water drop pictures. Do you mind sharing it with me?
Thank you,
Jim Reeves

I'm happy that you liked my pictures and choose them for such a noble purpose. Please check your email, the full resolution images should be there by now.

Dear Michael
A friend of mine here in Israel has a lethal cancer and she is making a farewell (from life) party
I took upon myself to organize the evening
We have musicians and we will accompany the music with flower slides.
We use lots of Mapplethorpe but encounter your orchids.
The problem is that they are too low resolution...
Just for this purpose would you agree to send us some of your wildest orchid pics in better resolution?
You have my e-mail. There will be no other use for the pictures.
This is urgent so I hope you read it today...
ALl the best. Eilam -->

Our daughter, Jenna,is in Mrs. Doyle's class at Ross Doan. In January, you had posted some pictures of their class play and we viewed them on your web-site. We have just returned to your web-site and were thinking and hoping that we could get a few copies of the pictures as they were much better than the ones we took ourselves. Is it possible to view them again and get some copies?

Michael, you have got such a collection of different pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Mr. Shpuntov

I just bought the Panasonic FZ10 camera and I just wanted to say that your pictures(and I have been viewing a lot of them for this camera) are among the very best.

Do you use automatic or do you set the ISO at 50? It seems to be the ideal for your pictures. They are so good. Sincerely, Eunice
