Hi Neyvan. The Bowman and Spearman are two sculptures from 1928 sculptured by Croatia's greatest sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic. It does look impressive, especially against the pure blue and the way light and shade emphasise muscle and form of both man and horse. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Ana. Lovely image, biblical in spirit of the shepherd and the lamb(or is it a kid in this case.) Some things never change -at least for now. Excellent exposure, moment seized and overall mood of contentment and inter reliance. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Daniel. As usual a masterly combination of architectural details, perspective, human presence, colour and light. Excellent DOF and a POV that blends well the spacious foreground and a busier middle and distant parts of the image into a balanced whole. Enticing place to visit, thanks to your skills. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Frank. This shot reminds me of my childhood when I used to play in front of my grandmothers house and she and her cronies use dot sit in the shade and talk.Most women her age wore black as every house had lost someone during WW2 in Yugoslavia. Nice, natural feeling in this photo with lovely Mediterranean sun. I detect drystone walls just like in Dalmatia. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Ana. At first I was not sure what was before my eyes. Boulders, some sort of avalanche? Then I saw the men hidden in the dust and the horns in the foreground. What a commotion! And you were caught up in the flow- like the nomads and shepherds of times past. Great record of a practice that still goes on in Portugal. Regards. Klaudio.

Salut Nicolas. il est si salutaire de voir comment le commerce et la préservation de la nature peuvent aller main dans la main. La beauté et la pureté de la nature est visible dans votre photo et il est également bon de lire que la nourriture est préparé de la manière traditionnelle, une méthode qui est en train de disparaître à travers le monde. Grande PDV et de belles couleurs naturelles. Meilleurs voeux. Klaudio.
