Dear Constantino, What a glorious scene of colours, bright light and reflections! Your photograph makes me want to disappear off to your beautiful shores right now! The colours here are wonderfully vibrant and the light is strong and warm, bringing out some beautiful textures and enhancing the lovely reflections on the water. A fine composition with wonderful light and rich colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness. Beautiful!/ Kind Regards, John.

Hello Jorge, No elephant here - it hss gone - but a fine photograph of this beautiful palanquin with its ornate silverwork and red upholstery. The light here must have been very challenging but you have produced a well composed photograph with lovely soft lighting, fine colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. Beautiful! Kind Regards, John.

Hello Takero, This is a very fine photograph of this young entertainer in the midst of her presentation to tourists and onlookers and very well seen and taken with a long lens in order to isolate her sharply from a nicely out of focus background. Lovely light and fine rich colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. Beautiful! Kind Regards, John.

Ciao caro Luciano, It never ceases to amaze me just how much the ancient artists and architects must have revered and respected God and Christianity to have worked so fervently to create such masterpieces as this! You have again written an fascinating an informative note and given us a very fine photograph to admire. I love your symmetrical composition and, despite what must have been very difficult lighting conditions, you have produced a beautiful image with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. Beautiful! Kind Regards, John.

Ciao caro Carlo, Oh dear, your note has disappeared! Just another problem with TE! But what a glorious picture of this fine cathedral, perfectly displayed against a clear blue sky in a fine symmetrical composition with good light and colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness. Beautiful! Kind Regards, John.

Hello Lucas, You have written a fascinating note about this railway and given us a beautiful photograph of this old steam locomotive. I seem to remember that it was British workers on the Brazilian railways who first introduced the game of football to the Brazilian railway workers many years ago - and now Brazilian footballers are the best in the World! A very nicely composed photograph with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness. The people on the station platform add human interest as well as a fine sense of scale. Lovely! Kind Regards, John.[+]
Red Church by emka (96356)

Hello Malgo, As always, an interesting and informative note and how fortunate hat you visited this place on a day of celebration - though, curiously, Independence Avenue looks pretty quiet! But is it not strange for a Polish architect to have the name Marconi? Anyway, two lovely photographs, your main one showing this imposing fairly modern red church standing out brilliantly against its surroundings and the clear blue sky. Your workshop picture of Independence Avenue is equally striking with its strong perspective and lovely colours - and just a few people relaxing on benches. And both are well composed with perfect exposure and exceptional details and sharpness. Excellent! Kindest Regards, John.

Ciao caro Silvio, What could be more beautiful than the plateau of Castelluccio in June? Yes, the plateau of Castelluccio in June with a pretty girl! The huge expanses of bright yellow flowers brighten the whole scene here and contrast well with the darker hills and the darker blue sky above. The girl is perfectly placed in the frame and her yellow skirt almost matches the yellow of the flowers. She also adds a special focal point to the image, drawing our eyes even deeper into those wide expanses of yellow. A glorious scene, perfectly captured in this fine composition with beautiful light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity. Beautiful! Kind Regards, John.
"We Have To Accept The Result" by serp2000 (44013)

Hello Serghei, Yes, we shall "have to accept the result" but in my opinion it is a bad result. Someone has very rightly said that it "was a working-class revolt, but it is not a working-class victory" - very true. And your photograph is so apt too - we might all be just skeletal remains like this horse if Britain becomes poorer after our stupid decision to leave Europe. And a fine photograph this is with good light and vibrant colours. Just a pity the sky was a bit too bright but your exposure is perfect, your composition pleasing and the details and sharpness are exquisite. Excellent! Kind Regards, John.

Hello Serghei, As this is Birmingham and it's taken inside a modern building, I expect that you were inside and Mike was outside looking for some interesting architectural features! I love the composition here and how the lines of the bookshelves lead the eye to the bright distant window while the man, standing cross-legged browsing the books, is perfectly silhouetted against the bright light. And the distant man, seated at a desk, is a fine addition and perfectly placed in the frame too. Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent depth of field and sharpness. Excellent! Kind Regards, John.[+]
