    Hello Orania,
    That famous Greek light certainly helped much here in rendering such an attractive image from a "humble" theme (I was about to say simple, but that would contradict the title, which matches the complication of all those ropes). But your choice of POV and framing are also essential.

    Hola Maria,
    Wonderful light and compo, very nicely balanced. You managed to capture the quiet mood of that place and moment.

    Hello Angshu,
    It's a vivid portrait, very well captured in a situation that doesn't look easy, either for composing or to tame the light, but you achieved in both. I like the way that the breads and the seller stand out from the rest.

    Hello Ann,
    What an amazing sky and light! And what a compo! It's a very, very attractive image. The colour isn't abundant, but at the same time is part of the charm because the houses and the boat stand out on all that white and grey.

    Kalimera Danos,
    A good title, indeed. The arch looks like an old ruin and it is amazing that it is natural. I like the way you made the compo, mixing the presentation of the nature witj all those people enjoying the view and the tide. And that emerald water... Beautiful!

    Kalimera Costantino,
    It's a nice view and presentation of that very elegant bridge, shot from a vintage POV. The clouds make it more attractive. I would prefer to have a little more space on the right, that cropped pillar doesn't look that good, but that is only a detail.

    Hello Ryszard,
    A impressive and kind of original POV, and also a very nice presentation of that interesting building, whose red stands out on the surrounding green. It is a very catchy image.

    Bonsoir Denis,
    De la miniature elle ne paraissait si impressionnante comme elle est actuellement; on s'aperçoit qu'il s'agit d'une belle paysage, mais on ne voit pas comme la compo est si achevée, bien balancé. Et les couleurs sont merveilleuses.

    Bonsoir Nicolas,
    Même sans le détail ironique de ce mixage inespéré des ciseaux sur le drapeau, elle serait encore une image très attirante, pour les formes et les couleurs. Très bien vue.

    Bonsoir Pierre,
    Bonne présentation de ce bâtiment avec son architecture original, qui invite à explorer graphiquement ses formes simples mais originelles. J'aime bien le POV et le minimalisme des couleurs. C'est curieux comme les traces presque invisibles au sol contribuent pour la compo et le ciel terne va très bien avec les murs et rends une bonne lumière pour le sujet.

    Bonsoir Jean,
    Une présentation génial de cette œuvre magnifique, avec un cadrage très achevée et une lumière qu'on dirait qu'il y avait des énormes fenêtres à gauche, à droite et derrière de façon à permettre de photographier comme il s'agitait d'une image d’extérieur. Une belle photo!

    Bonsoir Jean,
    Une image très belle et parfaite techniquement. La netteté de la version grande est impressionnante. Tu as profité les reflets et du fait que l'église est plus illuminée que le reste, ce qui la fait se détacher.

    Bonsoir Jean,
    Une image très interessante, avec un touche d'abstract et minimalisme, bien balancée avec le couple "coupé" e le reflet à droite. J'aime spécialement le détail que le couple est "coupé" mais on voit son reflet complète.

    Hello Daniel,
    You achieved capturing that unique charm you mention in the note, at least from a photo point of view. The kind of minimalism rendered by the house, that you explore so cleverly with the choice of POV, is nicely broken by the hanging clothes.

    Hello Farhat,
    It's a nice and very lively snapshot of daily life. You got a good compo in a situation that doesn't look easy for such a thing. It is pity that the sky is so dull, but nobody has control over that, isn't it?

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Wonderful! I haven't been to this place, only down there, in Pokhara, but these kind of light and skyline bring me back good memories of absolutely gorgeous places. You turned the haze, which often spoils many beautiful views, in one of the things that makes the image much attactive. And those colours... Pure beauty!

    Hello Ike,
    You did a nice compo, despite that foreground which it isn't exactly ugly but looks prone to clutter most of the photos, which is something you managed to avoid. It is a pleasant view of the ruins in its context.

    Ciao Luciano,

    A simple but effective and nice POV. I notice the accomplished crop/framing, with the tower slightly off centred and the man, which gives a nice human touch, very well positioned. It is also a good presentation of the architecture.

    I am not sure, but I think that this mosque was half abandoned, despite some signs of works, when I was there in 2003. Almost certainly it couldn't be visited.

    TFS, Regards, José

    Hello Craig,
    Congratulations for your 900th post, you have almost the double I have. It is a great night shot, very achieved both technically and aesthetically. You chose a good POV and I like that dark diagonal rendered by the raised bridge.

    Hello Paul,
    A great and well chosen POV, the wall and the rocks seems to "spear" the imagem, pointing at the buildings on the right, enhancing a dramatic atmosphere already given by what you rightfully call "Cantabrian Summer sky".
    The only occasion I was in Cantabria it was August and I think we had only one day we could call fully sunny, so this weather matches my memories of those coastal towns.
    TFS, Regards, José
