    Merhaba Mesut,

    This is a fine demonstration of shallow dof.
    The flowers, winding around the fence, are perfectly sharp against an oof but useful b/g.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Jean,

    This is like a an unfettered race!
    There is such freedom in yachting!
    A very well constructed composition, with its own scenario.
    I like the two different moods of the sea, smooth in the f/g, then choppy; each area with associated reflections.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Francesco,

    This is like taking a walk across the bridge oneself!
    The converging lines create a great sense of depth and a journey that is irresistible!
    Your b&w shot has wonderful clarity and I love the pp work of lens flares; they somehow lift the shot even higher.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    Reflections are always attractive to us photographers and this is such a beauty it could not be missed. The distortions give it a very special, artistic quality and the scrap paper becomes focal because of its incongruity.
    Is that you, reflected in the top section?

    Have a good week,

    Ha! Ha! Ana, this was one smart dog!

    You have a beautiful scene without the shepherd dog but, with him included, you have a fine focal point and a sense of a story.
    Lovely light/shadow contrasts in your photograph.

    Hello Barbara,

    A wonderful sight!
    If we find it so amazing, what an effect it must have had on ancient peoples!
    I'm sure it would have been difficult to photograph this without including many other people but they are a useful addition for mood, for scale and for colour.
    Even without bright sunshine you have managed to capture the details with clarity.

    Have a lovely week,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Klaudio, As you well know, I do not drive and rent a car ( my driver doesn't want to go so far), I am travelling only by buses. I am afraid it would be difficult. But it worked well in Lofoten so maybe I should try New Zealand? Irt is on the top pf my bucket list but difficult to realize.
    marvelous landscape, beautiful blue lake with splendid reflection of the Mount Coo. Really breath taking view. Central heating? What for? Is is so cold there? I wonder what is on these selected CDs.
    A bit similar like Lofoten but here is the autumn view.

    Hello Burak,

    This photograph shows so much more than just a shot of the iconic pyramids. Here, we can see how it was a local industry, too.
    We can still see the amazing size of the individual stones of the pyramid (the lower ones being taller than man) and marvel at its construction but there is a real setting.

    How sad that now, human conflict jeopardises the livelihood of so many!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Claude,

    Such a great action shot!
    I love how you have included the hands, in the f/g, which make a very effective lead.
    There is a real sense of movement.
    For anyone who has never seen the Tour de France, this shot summarises it very well.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Mesut, I am ready to help you, you know I am bit crazy about flowers, so it is as I suppose Gentiana.
    Gentiana is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the gentian family. With about 400 species it is considered a large genus. They are notable for their mostly large, trumpet-shaped flowers, which are often of an intense blue. The genus name is a tribute to Gentius, an Illyrian king who may have been the discoverer of tonic properties in gentians. beautiful presentation of these lovely flowers.

    Have a nice new week

    Hello Noel, I love such places and no opportunity to visit them, fascinating old monument . More than five thousands years old! How they built it without the tools?? The place look really unspoiled by tourism. The black and white suits well to show these stones.

    Hello Stephen, I saw somewhere another rope factory and it was also very long building. Woow, 374 meter long. Where there really such long ropes needed? I no nothing about the sails. Superb composition with the tree framing the view of this unique building.

    Hello Burak, A lot of camel, waiting for tourists probably, but here I see only locals. Something like parking. I was once beaten in Arm by such a beast in Morocco. Nice picture from your archive. Now this visit is not recommended :(.
