Beautiful capture, texture and depth through out this shot! very nice angle that drives all the elements of capturing this scene ensuring the imposing tower never let loose! It really gives a good sense of history as well as showing us those fine weathered details. Lovely colours and super composition, Well done, TFS

A cracking top drawer shot of this elegant crested bird, you've caught her in some brilliant light and I love the mouthwatering deep blue of the ripply water. What a wonderful nature sight and one rarely seen, you should be delighted to have nailed this one. Awesome top marks all round, Congrats.

An adorable child! A good quick grab with exposure about right, you've caught that look and those beautiful eye nicely. I think the colour emphasises the child's lovely skin tone and personally it's great candid given the expression and the surroundings. Great snap, TFS

This shows how the animals compete for space at the ghat, lots of activity, colour and leaving things as they are to give a true view on the local surroundings and life. That boy is doing something to catch the eye and the side people are pointing inwards and interesting buildings in the background to complete the compo. That lighting is favourable too for good keeping shadows to a minimum, well seen, well taken.

Days of old...
I love the shot Noel! the photo brings back memories of living on the farm! but i think it's not all fun for the country folks though when you have a farm with all the back breaking work bet he's exhausted to get the threshing done, regardless of the weather. With all that Nature around him I am sure it's a much more healthy way of living that us urban dwellers commuting in a stuffy dusty cityscape. Looks like hard work but I know where the milk and eggs come from, the yoghurt or the cheese, the fruit and veggies! All the plants and critters are right there too!! A good reportage at the festival, showing how hard life on the farm is... Super shot, Congrats

A very well observed, composed, exposed and captured image with immediate interest in the foreground, whilst at the same time you have maintained the interest through wise aperture selection. A finely processed and presented depicting the spirit of the season. Well done, TFS
Upsidedown boat reflection by ikeharel (51533)

Lovely squiggly lines flipped upside down which turns this effect even stronger - reflections are always more puzzling when the image is 'the right way up', because that's not what the brain expects. Lovely deep contrasting and detail. Anyway, I've got a crick in the neck from checking this one out...
Great capture, Congrats, TFS

A stunning capture, and what a wonderful colourful village, sunny and warm. Incredible feat of engineering really on how they build these houses on a cliffside and all the buildings seem to be stacked on top of one another! It must be very hard to go up and down walking along the streets. You have caught the essence of this cliff side village perfectly with good foreground details as added interests. Fantastic shot, that's really beautiful, TFS

This is straightforward and rather delicious with stylistically cage, amazing how prominent those tiny areas of blue manage to be. Great capture good detail and texture and very Tunisian. Well done.
