    Hello Silvio,

    Your photograph is a powerful reminder of the catastrophic earthquake that took its toll. I understand over 290 people perished in the earthquake.

    My deep sympathies to the courageous people of Italy.

    Olá Ricardo!
    Um pov um pouco diferente. Gosto da perspectiva, da arquitectura que quase nos faz viajar no tempo e até do vendedor ambulante que dá vida ao lugar! Boa luz e cores!

    Hi Ourania!
    This is really a great moment! The huge cloud above the little boat and the reflection really make the composition. You even got some sunlight on the boat. Surely a very good shot!

    Hello Ana,
    This is another fantastic composition from your long walk with the shepherds and their animals. There is a dramatic contrast between the green hillside and the dark blue sky and the animals are spread out on a very long line going up the hill. The shepherd is well placed to the side. The view of the wind park on top of the hill describes a meeting of old traditions and modern technology. I love the rather dark tones of the well saturated colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    Another photo that makes me so sad. Almost 300 people have been found dead and so many houses have been destroyed. A great part of the local cultural heritage has been lost.This is an original way to present a photo of this kind, but the message is drastically clear.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    Either the exhibition inside is very interesting, and she's eager to see it, or the naked young lady is trying to hide inside before anyone else sees her. The connection between her, the sign and the door makes this a much more amusing photo than if you had isolated the sculpture against a totally neutral background. There is no need to apologize for the title. It couldn't have been better.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Bonjour Serge,
    an excellent composition, a well-cropped partial view that shows us the clothes and the procedure of tightening the corset so effectively. I like very much the details and the colours as well as the tilt that adds a dynamism so suitable for the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Benny,
    I recently had an idea for a composition like this, it concerned a much simpler old motorbike and looks too simple and dull compared to this work of art cum self-portrait you are presenting in this picture. I like very much the distribution of interest and the excellent crop, the fine details and textures as well as the cascading highlights. The smoky brown tones create a mysterious atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Lucas,
    I like how you froze this daily life scene, how the canoe and the children frame the blue house while they are staring back so intently. The houses seem to have a glance too, the blue one dominates the scene and the smaller ones complete the description of this neighbourhood. The reflections add texture and vibrancy. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Sven,
    this site looks mysterious and fascinating to me, you are introducing it to us through a bold and original composition that takes us deep into the scenery and offers intriguing reference with the sea and the tiny person sitting on the bench. I like very much how you split the perspective through the placement of the nearest tree. Colours and atmosphere are very delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Gy,
    it's unusual in this genre of photos for the sunflowers to be oriented to the side, I like the originality that strikes at first glance and makes us look at the whole picture more carefully. We are led to follow the perspective to the distant end of the field and dwel on the mysterious cityscape beyond it. I like the compact look of the field and the intense and slightly dark quality of the colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Chris,
    this view is great, the colours are brilliant and there's such a strong distinction between them. I also like the sense of balance and depth, the well-defined, natural details and the sense of tranquility and relaxation despite the strong light and eye-catching colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Chris,
    I like this photo very much, it shows the boat, the sky and the setting in a superb way, with amazing precision and a mesmerizing atmosphere. I'm very imprssed by the definition of details and colours in every area of your composition, the contrast between natural and artificial light and colours is excellent. The reflections spreading in the foreground create a sense of drama. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Carlo,
    ho seguito le cronache su Corriere della Sera e visto molte immagini che hanno documentato in modo preciso e doloroso quello che soffrono le personne che sono colpite ma anche quelli che stanno aiutando con tutte le loro forze. La tua immagine e' suggestiva e trasmette il sentimento dell' interruzione discrettamente ed effettivamente. Spero che vita e storia andranno avanti anche dopo questo colpo incredibile. Complimenti per questo ommaggio sensibile, grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Ciao Silvio,
    what a picturesque scene! The framing is amazing, you have used it perfectly here it goes so well with the scene, even filling the tiny bit between the trees. Beautiful natural blue and green colors.

    Ciao Silvio,
    ogni ora che passa tristezza e disperazione aumentano, spero che presto saranno sostituite da coraggio e speranza. Ho visto le due foto di avanti e dopo per quel che riguarda la Cattedrale ieri. La tua foto e' uno splendido ricordo, forse la Cattedrale potra' essere ricostruita un giorno, come molti edifici del dopoquerra in diversi paesi. Complimenti per il tuo ottimo documentario, grazie!

    Hello Paul,
    I just found this photo which I had not seen before. You combine a lot of the beauty of my city in one picture with a very relaxed atmosphere and fantastic colours and light. I have seen this view many times, of course, but I am still amazed that my city looks so nice.

    Hi Rob,
    lovely composition. I like of course the industrial foreground with so many lines and patterns, well spotted and used! However what I like most is of course the fact that you have also included the silhouette of the empire state building. This anchors it in NYC, by introducing a very characteristic element!
    Great idea and perfect quality realization,

    Hi Alex
    Interesting how the weather or possibly the heavy mist has turned this to almost black and white boosting the atmosphere with superb glimpse of the great waterfalls behind. The palm trees with all the contributing elements work hand in hand in making this a success shot. You managed the exposure really well too. Superb work, Congrats
    Thanks to your brief notes.

    Hi Danos
    Looks a charming place to unwind allowing me to take in the beauty and charm of this beautiful Mediterranean spot, exceptional lighting and composition on this lovely harbour scene. Pristine boats there with lots of interesting items to photograph especially i love the fresh steely blue water against white on shore. Lots more to grab our attention. Indeed a wonderful capture
    and thks for sharing, Congrats.
    Best wishes
