    Hello Daniel,
    A nice perspective along the narrow street where the restaurant to the right looks quite inviting and the neon light to the left is a superb eye-catcher. I think there are interesting places to explore at the end of the street too.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    Theoretically this could have been a beautiful view. I think it happens to all of us sometimes that the place we wanted so much to see is wrapped in scaffolding and tarpaulins. If I go to Ghent in spring this will probably not be finished, but I am sure I will find some other favorite corners of the city. At least you managed fine light and colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Stephen,
    Occasionally it is hard to tell the real statues from the living ones. Sometimes this could lead to slightly embarrassing situations. This is a nice and colourful photo, and it's a bit interesting to see that most pedestrians don't seem to care at all. What a hopeless job to sit there for hours without moving, maybe desperately needing to go to the toilet ;-). It's not a job for elderly men.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Alexandre,

    I'm pleased that you were able to explain the Dutch connection!

    This is a very well composed photograph, the tower sharp and strongly placed in the frame. The inclusion of the figure explains the scale immediately.
    There is an amazing sense of depth as the sea's horizon goes on forever!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is definitely not for me. I don't eat sweets... ;-) And Santa Claus is not celebrated until Christmas Eve in Sweden. But it's still an attractive and colourful photo. The cakes look very similar at first, but looking carefully I see that there probably aren't two that are exactly the same. Most surprising of all is that the written message seems to be slightly different on all of them. What a creative imagination that baker had.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    An image that well evokes a stormy day with the people well wrapped and the flag flying in the wind. The ginger cat watching the two people watching the harbour is a lovely addition. Colours and clarity are excellent despite the gloomy weather.

    Bonjour Denis,

    You couldn't have ordered a better cloud display than this!
    The bank of clouds perfectly follows the well composed, diagonal line of the houses, but offers quite different textures and sense of depth.
    I love how you have positioned the tall orange tower so strongly in the frame.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Lars,

    I like how you have composed this photograph, the bridge as the main feature, sharp and imposing, but underneath, a chance to relate to the rest of the scene.
    I'm glad you explained the use of the tall building for it immediately reminded me of Battersea Power Station!
    The light is glorious and well handled.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Cricri,
    This balcony offers an impressive view over this fantastic landscape. I like the graphical lines offered by the balcony railings, which make an interesting contrast with the rugged rocky outcrop. Superb colours and clarity and fine rendering of all the beautiful textural detail.

    Hello Stephen,

    These are interesting notes. I had no idea that living statues were rooted in history. I perceived them as quite a modern invention!

    They used to be an unusual and noteworthy addition to a main street but they have become so common that I wonder if they are able to make a living nowadays! And, I wonder how long it takes them to get into costume and make-up!

    I like how you have composed this, the statue angled, allowing the patterned tiles to act as a guide. The statue is definitely the focal feature, sharply detailed. The b/g is useful as a scene setter with just enough blurring to prevent them taking attention from the main figure.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)
    Misty and cool today!

    Hello Carlo,
    It took me a while to work out what exactly I was looking at, but I got there in the end! Very clever composition, ideally cropped. I like the combination of the reflections and the brass instrument with its fine textures.
