  2. Dear Lou,
    There’s nothing I can tell you that would change or improve your work, but I can say that I wish I had a room or six full of it.
    Keep On Climbing,

  3. Louis,

    This is just amazing, I love how you have taken just a shoe store and created a work of art. I also love how you have incorporated the photographer (you ?) into the work. I think this is a great work of art.

  4. At last………..an image to go with your name!

    I love the way your hand hangs in space, as if an eerie monster coming out from under the table.

    Simply an amazing piece of work!
    All best-

  5. This one is outstanding!

    It expresses so many things, the way the light is set makes it interesting and I just love the way you included the self portrait. Excellent work!

  7. Great photo! The details are super a la HDR, and the general composition is spot on. You look cool in the reflection. Do you wear a monocle? 😉 Cheers, Albert

  10. WOW-Amazing shot! I love how you incorporated a self portrait in the reflection. The image is very deep, filled with multiple messages. The sense of interior and exterior worlds, the “hope” of new shoes combined with the “hope” of our president, glass, reflections,identity, etc…OUTSTANDING!

    I’ve always been impressed with your work, but,I haven’t looked at in a while. It is just so inspiring! GREAT WORK.
    Keep sharing.
