Know what?
Picks of paintings are tricky and usually need polarizers (in the lens and in the lighting).

Looks like the Someone from the Hudson River school of photography. I'm probably wrong...

Ordo,

Perhaps a stupid question , not exactly precise. Pretty much anything. I am out fishing here, happy with any catch

Ultimate goal is to know the painter's name. Guess it's correct to call it "romanticistic"

Isn't it signed? If not visible, deframe it and look the borders and the back of the paint. May be you find something.

Good idea. My first photo of an oil painting. The light came from a window to the left. Tried to colour burn/burn but the file didn't respond so well

Can you share your experience even more?

Yes, i can. This is a painting made by a family relative, Hector Nava, who is a "Catalog" painter, which means his paintings are very well known in the European art market.



Natural light. Canon A900 ps. You can see the poor quality, the reflections of light on the strokes, the lack of 3D texture, etc. Summary: a bad pick. Paintings are tricky and need pro photographers to get them right.
About the art market and your father's painting, you should check with some expert in your own country. Check and double check.

This is a fault of the forum software. I write and correct in Word, then copy and paste. Should be enough. But itīs not.

Ordo,

As you pointed out

"The solution is that little icon up left in the quick replay window: remove text formatting"

The little wordpad here imports all kinds of formatting. Nice to see your words again

Btw, We'll challenge the pros any minute. Luckily talent is more widespread than expensive equipment.
