This is a place I have often wanted to visit ... maybe, one day! You have used the details of the daffodil covered f/g well, as a colourful lead to the ruined castle. The setting gives a symbolic softness to the grey walled, defensive castle, which seems to be dipping its toes in the water.
The details are very well collected.

Roots are like life blood, they make you what you are and always have a strong pull! I'm not surprised you were pulled back here! It's a great location for a photographer!
The sky and river are an unusual colour but I find it warm, unthreatening. I find the pattern and colour of the bridge constantly attracting my attention and drawing me across the water; how good that the upright at the far side is also green, making an attractive link.

Ha! Ha! John, you must be a well-loved local feature travelling along on your bicycle, camera at the ready!
As always, you shot is beautifully composed, with good leads and features strongly placed.
The houses, with their bright orange roofs, are a photographers dream, especially with the green doors and shutters, they bring vibrant colours to the scene.
The bare branches allow us to see right into the distance, as far as the church tower, something not possible in full summer.

Ha! Ha! Gert your information about the number of colour films you had taken, made me realise just how much expense you would have incurred, having them developed and printed! It was for that reason that we took fewer shots! How many of our digital shots ever become permanent!
This is a sweet shot.
The little boy is a star!
Only a child would try this experiment but what a lot of experiential learning he is gaining!
The details of his setting are great in telling the story of his environment.

The contrasts of low sunshine and rising mist, create an early morning, autumnal atmosphere with which many of us can identify. We know it will be warmer in a short time.
You have composed the shot really well, anchoring the f/g with the grasses, which show up well against the mist, whilst the swirling shapes of the rocky hillside complete the movement into the b/g.

I know you like to photograph bridges and this one is in a fine location, with abundant decoration. You have given us two possible pathways, which always adds extra interest to a photograph; we can move up the river and under the bridge, or we can cross the bridge towards the domed building. Whichever way we choose first, it ensures we visit all areas of this sharply presented scene.
'The Box Man' by snunney (82547)

I'm not quite sure, is the man just a rubbish collector or is he collecting the boxes to reuse in some way?
It's an interesting shot, lots of details to peruse. Besides the main figure, we have unexpected, details in the shop window, some original, some reflections. It's like having two shots superimposed.

Ciao Caro Carlo,
I love reflections and they don't get much better than this. There is a lovely symmetry between the building and its reflection, though their appearance is different in terms of sharpness and impressionism.
The curved line of boats makes an interesting lead, separating the real from the reflection.
The light and the colours are beautiful.

You have travelled to some very beautiful places.
I really like how you have used the f/g foliage to anchor your shot, as a prelude to travelling up the water to the m/g hills and, eventually the cloud capped mountains. You have created a very natural flow to your photograph.
My warm regards,
