Ciao caro Serge
What a beautiful sky here. The vertical frame is sensational and I love the effect on perspective from the converging lines. The houses in the foreground are illuminated brilliantly and the weeds we can see in the water in the foreground are the icing on the cake.

Ciao cara Rosemary
Another crack-er. Literally. The textures of that harsh cracked earth are a visual feast, my eyes hVe just swallowed them up. And the rich orange dunes, and their shapes in the background finish this work off superbly, as does the very appropriate poem from the South African writer (of whom I'd not heard). So thanks. I think this would have worked on vertical too, with the main sand dune in the centre being framed and the large foreground of cracked earth adding depth. I'll do a Workshop to see, but the moment I saw this, I immediately thought of vertical framing.
A stunning photo, one of the most interesting I've seen in ages. Also what's amazing is the stark similarity of your homeland to the desert of mine.

Gidday dear Noel
Hey great title! It certainly looks like beautiful stained glass grows on trees over there on your Soggy Isle. And you exposed the light for it absolutely perfectly. I'm forever getting blown out stained glass - I suppose there could be worse problems in life, eh? Anyway, stunning symmetry and really beautiful colours and details. I like the tight framing of the nave and the warm light at the back of the altar. Good onya!
Fridayyyyy vino here I come

As you know, I'm a fan of rocks, so really appreciate their inclusion. In fact the white colours contrast so nicely with the vivid multi-colours of the township. Yes, it's difficult to get an original shot of this place, but I think you tried hard and succeeded. PS: those rocks are NOT a good place for boys with bad knees. I've slid down enough of these babies to know that :)
Have a great weekend, I hear you've been doing the nightshift, so hope this weekend will be a restful one for you
PS: that place with the sand dunes has a shipwreck. You can only get to it by camel or dune buggy or walk 30 kilometres down the beach. At sunset it's so cool! I promise not to upload photos of it until you and Tosca land in Sydney and I will personally take you there

Wow, what a great title and what a magnificent profusion of flowers. The colours, light and textures are truly sensational. What a wonderful opportunity to see this amazing phenomena.

Another excellent POV to get the best of the views available. The water is simply amazing, pure magic and makes me want to dive in for a swim. I like the contrast of the seaweed and the coloured kayaks. They're splayed beautifully.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

Una nota interessante. bellissimi i colori forti e la gestione della luce ed ombra. Mi piace il simbolo della sola signora. Sembra molto pensive. complimenti e ti auguro una bella giornata.

Ciao caro Giovanni
hahahaha this is delightful. Delicious, delectable and delightful. What a decisive moment, it's so compelling. The little girl's dad is in for a surprise - and perhaps a snack - later. Superb definition, colour and skin tones. I also like the tight framing, an excellent composition.

Salut mon cher Jean
Ahh this is truly magical. I love the Pink Hour, the so perfectly exposed and its reflection in the sea and sand. The lighthouse makes for an interesting skyline. A beautifully composed and illuminated shot. Congratulations.
