    Ciao Stephen
    la chiesa sembra un po' anonima, ma la torre campanaria ha un'architetta piuttosto originale, non credo di averne mai viste in questo modo.
    Buona domenica

    Hello Malgo,
    you captured the atmosphere of the "crispy cold but sunny" day in a very effective way, I like very much the brilliant light and its influence on the colours. A detailed composition with interesting layers and movement, a vibrant impression of the Luxemburg Garden. The workshop picture has lovely textures, reflections and colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
    Ourania

    You are right, the WS photo shows the way most men dress these days in the only Indian city I have visited - Delhi (trousers of some sort rather than dhoti). A lot of women still dress in a traditional fashion though. Is it because women are more conservative or is it that they are expected to stick to the tradition by their conservative husbands and fathers? Somehow I suspect it's the former... Whatever the reasons, they do look gorgeous.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your new series.
    This was taken around the time when I took my first b&w shots... :-)
    Have a nice Sunday

    Ciao Silvio,
    mi piace molto l' atmosfera intima e serena di questo vicolo, i colori dolci e le tessiture nitidissime. La tua composizione e' comprensiva ed elegante, la scoperta di dettagli e la sensazione di ritmo e completezza e' molto gradevole. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hi Bev,
    I love the wet pavement which provides a chance for reflections although usually I am staying at home at such weather so I have no chance to take a photo like this...
    The tram is a lovely subject. In my home town there is one equally charming tram converted to a little cafe, I must take a photo of it next time I am there.
    I enjoy your perfectly balanced exposition in spite of difficult conditions. Everything seems to be very well lit.
    Beautiful street scene!

    la presenza delle persone sedute è determinante per dare un senso diverso alla foto, gli da personalità, crea interesse e anche il senso della misura.

    Hello Noel,
    the movement, the soft textures and the warm tint of the monochrome have produced an alluring result, the scene looks intimate and suggestive, the dancer seems to be surrounded by flames. I like that we can see her face and expression clearly but the scene doesn't cease to be mysterious and timeless. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    yes, this kind of clothes is more usual in small villages, and even turbans are in extinction. I liked the graphic mood of the fence and the presence of the personage in the other side. nice view in B&W. if you had said this image was took in 1940, everybody will agree.

    Dear John,
    this is so pretty! The fog is quite dense and I admire your exposition here -we can well see the silhouettes of the trees and the sheep of course. The seem to be standing out of the background. They are staring at you :)
    Lovely scene, very well done!!!

    Hi Gert
    I know what you mean, the WS photo is more of a street shot but then I would also probably select this one as the main upload because it's more unusual without losing the "nothing special" quality as it is an perfect example of everyday life scene (or so I imagine).
    Great choice of dramatis personae at the time of shooting too. I like the juxtaposition between the two elegant ladies and the man on the left if the frame.
    In spite of the apparent simplicity of the scene (compared to the WS with many people and a lot happening), there are many delightful details to look at, from the architecture, through the fruit stall merchandise to the colourful reflections in the puddles.
    Best wishes

    bella interpretazione di questo panorama inconfondibile, il soggetto principale è ben centrato e contornato da molte altre architetture, con l'eccezione delle quattro ciminiere che creano un punto di interesse diverso.

    An impressive creative outcome in a situation where most people would try to produce only record shots. Masterful use of contrast resulted in this near-minimalist image. Congratulations, also, on the choice of medium.
    This would look great on a gallery wall.

    Hello Daniel,
    the palette of cold tones has a mesmerizing effect, it creates an attractive and almost surreal context that makes the people stand out. I like how you measured the spaces and how you used sharpness to enhance the graphic result. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rob,
    you introduced a surprising element in the foreground, it attracts the viewer's attention and provides information and reference that support the main theme effectively. I also like the different colour of the light and the sense of intimacy it gives. The building is impressive, you have ensured superb definition and graphism and it's amazing that we also get a clear view of the interior. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Iain
    What a fantastic, otherworldly landscape! Good crop (neve mind the foot) that not only kept the group of tourists out but also made it look almost abstract, it could be anything from a modern sculpture to a landfill site. I was pleased to read in your note it's a natural phenomenon.
    The colours, the soldiers pose and the expression on his face all beautifully captured.
    Definitely one for my travel wish list theme.
    Best wishes

    This is exactly what I witnessed during my stay at Inle, about 6 months before yours. I bet these are the same "actor-fishermen" I took photos of. They even had some dead fish to use a props to pose with should the tourists wish so. I got invited into one of their boats and spent quite a productive half an hour photographing acrobatic skills that had nothing to do with fishing...
    Great shot with lovely colours in the background and the tourists with cameras skillfully included in the foreground.

    Hello Gert

    Good old FP4! Did you do your own dev and printing in those days? This is a fine observational photograph, and although we can't see his face, we can imagine the interrogatory and perplexed look clearly. As I'm sure I've said before, these old images, good as they are intrinsically, gain added importance as historical documents. Looking forward to more!

    BTW, as ever, your "workshop" is easily the equal of your main post: why not give all your images the same oxygen of publicity??

    Kind regards

    Will
