    Ciao Francesco,

    A view of the temple from the corner as you have caught, I believe also is the best possible vantage point (2-point perspective) you could have employed. The light is fantastic. The textures of the stones, the carvings, the deep shadows and the colors are all first rate. I have visited Taormina on many occasions, but it is Siracusa, Trapani and Agrigento that I want to see most.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Barbara,

    In its composition, this one is similar to a photo of a street corner you posted last month. You had a gorgeous day for both shots, and you produced excellent renditions of the intersections of New York. Here you have a pedestrian who becomes a focal point. It's very effective.

    Warm regards and happy Memorial Day weekend,

    Hello Will,

    The puzzling title certainly elicits a view, and an invitation to read the photographers's note.
    But obviously it's more than that. As a photograph of a work of art, a real specialty in photography, it is absolutely first rate. The colors, texture and the depth-of-view are outstanding... and I enjoyed reading the note.

    Warm regards,

    Greetings Pyotr,

    The composition is first rate with the crest of the mountain running diagonally. The crisp light, the resolution and colors contribute to the eye catching image. You have convinced me, the next time I go to Barcelona (later this year), I must make it a point to try to see the Montserrat Abbey.

    Dear John,

    It helps to know the owner, and for the owner to know that you are a modern Flemish Master. I can hear the shrill sounds of the fountain in my mind. What gorgeous reds and greens, in the perfectly composed photo.

    Dear John,

    A field of tulips as far as the eye can see in perfect bloom, but as you mention you've removed some that are not quite ripe yet. This is in the Netherlands and not in Belgium. Can you ride there on your bike, or did you drive? There is a surreal aspect because it is so ideal.

    Warmest regards,

    Hello Stephen,

    The photograph is technically first rate. Ideal lighting, sharp as obsidian glass, and featuring vivid colors of the Mediterranean sunlight. The palazzo is beautifully preserved. It's columns, arches, ironwork... are all opulent. It could date back to the Renaissance, or it could be an edifice in the neo-Renaissance design of the 30s, built by Chicago Mafia don who is in self-imposed exile. I'm relieved that even you can fail to give notes extensively researched. If it were shot by Didi, it could even be a composite of 4-5 photos seamlessly stitched together, and include the courtyard below. But it is a perfectly exposed beauty.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Francesco,

    beautiful composition from Bolzano area. This church and houses doesn't look like italian churches, with this square and sharp tower. It looks more like in Austria or Germany. Are these hay rolls in this white bags? marvelous sky, beautiful colours.

    Witaj Alek, A cóż to za fontanna przed Kościołem Mariackim?? Nie powiem, zeby mi sie to podobalo. Fajne nocne zdjęcie, ale wolałabym, zeby wież kościoła nie obcinac. Wieczorem to przynajmniej nie widać tłumów turystów. Ale Kraków masz zaliczony :).

    Hello Stephen, The palace with no name and how beautiful. Marvelous courtyard with the palm. Many beautiful details, splendid atmosphere of the nice summer day. It seems there is even the garden on the terrace on the roof.

    Hello John,

    What a magnificent garden! Is it somewhere near the Polish-Canadian Museum? How lucky you were that you could visit it with the owner and you were allowed to make some photos. But then, he got marvelous pictures from you, he was more fortunate :). Fantastic view of the garden in spring. I suppose the flowers are rhododendrons, or maybe azaleas. I would love to see this garden.

    Have a beautiful Sunday, with nice photos.

    Hola Luis, You visited many fascinating places in south of France. I have niver heard about Vence, and it looks like a marvelous time, full of charm and history. No wonder it attracted so many painters. Beautiful composition, with many delightful details. And how nice when there are no cars and groups of tourists following the guides. beautiful picture.
