The Secret by Eibography The Secret by Eibography
Leonardo Da Vinci have always amused me with his works and especially his mirrored hand writing, i own a copy of almost all his notebooks and written observations, this one is my most favorite cause it was about his legendary Monalisa, i just love his lines.

As a Da Vinci lover myself, I really love this shot. You managed to capture, not only the details of his handwriting, but also the fine details in the pen. I can practically see every nook and cranny in it!

I think what I love most about this image is how the pen blends so nicely with the papers. The color of the feather isn't even the same as the text, but the tone of it goes so well with the tone of everything else. It strikes me as just one cohesive image rather than a pen on top of a notebook. It really does feel like it all goes together.
What do you think?

Any of Da Vinci's work is stunning because it is aged and theres something about old writings, but to be able to recreate his style to this precision and even use a "quill! pen is amazing and it just completes the photo. In my oppinion, It looks strictly Renaissance here, which I love

I love this photo! Everything about it is simply astounishingly breathtaking. te detail and clarity in the nootbooks is amazing, I can read the words with little difficulty which is somethis not always easily done as hey can blur easily. I cn even see the crease in the paper where it folds with amazing detail. The details in the pen make the photo pop even more and give it more depth and prerception. It doesnt feel like a simple photo of a feather on an old-styled notebook, but like a snapshot of time. everythig screams old-world to me about this photo. I simply love it!

Take a look to this page (in italian language)
Could be interesting to repeat the photo making a real pen following medieval systems, the page is full of self-explaining images then the text is full of tips about systems used in da Vinci era, to degrease and hardening the tip of pen or carving it with the correct profile to retain ink for long lasting writing or to avoid air bubbles in the retained ink. :sun: [link]

Have a nice day!
