National Geographic Selection

Great day, today. Four of my pictures about the one year lasting project on Porta Portese have been selected from National Geographic photo editors and a note on a particular photo from one of theme has been sent to me publicly and it reports:

The interesting light and balanced composition are pluses, but, what makes this compelling is the half smirk on the face of Anna. Her expression makes me feel like I know something more about her than what she looks like.” – Scott Strazzante –

The picture is this one:

And this is the original note from the editor:

When you put your heart and passion in what you do, these are the results.
