I am a French man who take photo like a hobby for one year.
I try to capture the beauty, where a great deal of persons just walk the line. To search simple detail which can become a general theme.
Finally, I am convinced it's better to catch a real beautiful place, that creat a false paradise. It is why I don't modify my picture, I just crop it, nothing else. I'm not a specialist computer, just a witness of natural beauty.
