    Hi Ourania
    You've caught him timely when the ambient is at its premium quality - a subtle morning light enveloped by striking steely dark water and lovely how eventually the splash of vivid red settles the focus there. It's wisely cropped, super colour contrast along with gorgeous reflections which lends this the extra cutting edge. A fruitful time you've had which is beautifully illustrated here. Congrats.

    Bonjour Gilles,

    What a spectacular panorama. I can imagine van Gogh would have loved this image, but where would he have gone with it. What were the settings on your camera?

    Warm regards,

    Ciao Luciano,

    You had an amazing vantage point to shoot this photo. The maze-like image of stairs, however, requires close scrutiny to figure out what is up and what is down. Effectively, it is a puzzle.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Eleu
    Gong Xi Fa Cai - Year of the Monkey, a nice symbolic action shot - at least we have some red colour there - as red represents happiness and good luck! A real good ''explosive'' capture making a big impact in the night sky giving much to the viewer to enjoy. Well done, Congrats.

    Hi Piotr
    Lovely bird-eye-view point that gives a totally diff perspective and almost a 2 D imagery. Focus is directed to the statue complemented by vivid red bounded by regimented beautiful patterns all working nicely as one entity. You've great contrast, side lighting and shadow. An imaginative capture so well executed, Congrats, tfs.

    Hi Jean
    Superb action when the sea turns this into a very powerful waves beautifully breaking on the shore. Love the sharp angle of the beach, colouring and contrast but on the minus side i know the feeling only too well, trying to keep the filters clean is a nightmare. Very dramatic! well done for getting the shot. Congrats, tfs.

    Hi Rob
    I love the busyness of the street scene but your shallow dof has succeeded in isolating the background while the busker so deeply into what he's playing full of concentration on his face oblivious to the surrounding. Love the juxtaposition, the colours are vibrant and sharp where it counts. A fabulous street photography that you certainly have captured the feeeel to it...

    Great shot, Congrats
    Play it again Sam!

    Ciao Carlo,
    es verdad, a veces un golpe de ojo nos hace ver una buena foto, como ésta.
    Me gusta mucho el encuadre cerrado sobre estos elementos tan habituales en cualquier casa, los buzones con su correo dentro, que has captado perfectamente para crear una composición minimalista y muy gráfica.
    La placa del 47, el interfono y la pequeña rejilla, junto a un bonito juego de luz y de sombras, completan esta gran idea, que ha comportado una gran foto.
    Un abbraccio,
    Josep

    Witaj Karolina,
    your 100th photo here, congratulations!!
    This one is a good shot at blue hour, executed skilfully, with a great ghost effect because of the long exposure time on the people in motion.
    I love the result achieved, the power of the colors and the good contrast of the architecture with the still blue sky, all of it create a very beautiful image.
    Best regards,
    Josep

    Bonsoir, cher ami Jean,
    c'est une splendide carte postale avec ce magnifique paysage pyrénéen, couvert avec son manteau d'hiver, laquelle tu nous offres avec un très joli contraste sur le ciel bleu.
    Il y a un beau jeu de lumière et d'ombres sur la neige, ainsi que des fantastiques reflets sur le ruisseau.
    Bien réalisée.
    Bien amicalement,

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    first, my congratulations for your 800th photo in the site.
    I like this kind of spontaneous and vital scenes, here you've captured the photographer in action, inside this elegant Mosque, and you've caught a fantastic contrast between the dark and lit areas as well.
    The final result is a very good composition, perfectly executed.
    A great job.
    Friendly regards,
    Josep

    Hi Danos,
    yes, it seems a real romantic place for a dinner, near the sea, and under the castle.
    It's a great night shot, and I like the splendid chiaroscuro in the composition, that you've executed skilfully.
    The contrast of lights and the darkness of the night, and the gold reflections on the water, make a beautiful picture.
    Friendly regards,

    Hello Ike,

    Whenever I see photos of archaeological relics, art or ruins, I am immediately moved! You have given a number of superb examples both from Israel and from Greece. The statue of Dionysus is beautifully photographed. And I like very much that it was not beheaded during the Iconoclastic Movement of the early Church. It must have been buried somewhere and the clergy could not get to it.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Dear Serghei,

    I think it is a great title for the unusual "ladder of clouds." The scene is spectacular, and it does not surprise me that you captured it.

    Incidentally, since you've visited me at home, see if you recognize the scene from the last photo I posted, "Green, green leaves..."

    Warm regards to the Urals,

    Hi Benny
    That's a beautiful vista! as the majestic tower strikingly stands out within the sea of divine fresh green landscape and lovely how the receding distant mountains adds a sense of enhanced depth!! The bit of bright waterways on the fg does add the extra boosting colour, you have excellent focus, detail, exposure and viewpoint I cannot really fault it. A picture postcard material well taken, Congrats.

    You have such a knack for taking an ordinary mundane situation and making it sing with the effective bright colouring and lovely light and shadow. A different take on laundry! Well done shot, TFS

    Dag Huub,

    Uw foto is wel bijzonder mooi, eerlijk ik heb dit nog nooit gezien, het moet wel zeer doeltreffend zijn tegen zon en regen.
    Ik denk niet dat er beter isolatie bestaat dat wat we zien.
    Heerlijk panorama over het dorp.
    Mooi foto werk, bedankt.

    Prettige dag verder,
    John.
