    Hello Angel,
    A very neat and elegant composition where you used the dark vault nicely to frame the beautiful courtyard. It's a very well exposed photo with many fine details.

    Hello György,
    You made a clever observation and added a smart title to the photo, drawing our attention away from the obvious huge statue to the much more important feature of the photo: the couple taking a selfie. It takes some skill to notice those persons at a distance and to realize how to use them for a composition. I think this must have been a case where nothing but B&W was possible. It's all about big and white versus small and dark. You cropped it neatly too. And I am sure those persons turned the right direction for their one picture.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,

    I like this busy composition of variegated colors and frames — horizontal, vertical, oblique — framing the Manhattan Skyline, and especially the Empire State Building.
    Warm regards, Rob, have a good weekend,

    Hello Luciano,
    I was sure you had gone somewhere and was wondering where. I thought it must have been a warm country with beautiful beaches. Guess I was wrong ;-)
    These partly blue small icebergs are fantastic and create a superb composition along with the white ice, the grey rocks and the darker sea. The sky looks desaturated but I am sure it really was as grey as this. This scenery is almost like an abstract painting, quite fabulous.
    Best regards,

    Hello Ike,
    Very similar to the other photo, but it's a nice view and can be seen again. It shows again how the latest techniques and styles have found a natural place in the ancient city. The colours and clarity are also as good as before.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a beautiful view across the fields and the castle seen in the forest in the distance. The clouds are very nicely shaped too. I feel once again that you have fallen for the temptation to exaggerate the colours a bit. I tried to make a desaturated workshop but I can't post it. Probably another bug, because I had the same problem the last time I tried to change somebody else's photo. I will mail my failed WS to you so you can have a look.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS Now I see the ws has been posted, even though I was told it was not possible.

    Hello John,
    This fine composition is characterized by two bright and distinct diagonals, one partly red, the other green. The trees, the hedge and one small white hut are wonderfully reflected in the calm dark blue water. The photo has an excellent balance and the light and colours are perfect.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    You don't looks at all like the man I have seen in some WS photos recently. Considering that I look pretty much the same as 46 years ago you really have changed considerably ;-).
    End of silly jokes. Congratulations on you anniversary. I am still one year away from that. Will the site survive until then? You have posted a lot of remarkable photos in these years and this is one of them. It's so old and so well preserved and so well scanned, the scenery is so magnificent and you placed (or maybe cropped) yourself so perfectly at a third. The note is well written and interesting and an inseparable part of today's posting.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi John
    wow, I want to write you a note before this photo gets taken OFF by the mods! haha...i hope not!

    congrats on 10 years, and actually, congrats on writing such a fine note. I was smiling the entire time, well done.

    So that's you eh? thats awesome John, you look so casual just strolling through the field, looking all cool, you could be walking down any city street for all we know. In fact you're walking through an area most of us will never get to see - thats something worthy of feeling proud about.

    I have to admit, when I see your Greenland shots, I very much want to visit here. Do you know if its become a little touristy here now? of I wonder if its still got that rugged outback nature feel to it. This is such a sweet view as you're encased in mountains all around you. I like that your gaze is off to the side too.

    Must have been hard to spend this time here without being able to watch Family Guy! lol

    10 out of 10 John, Keep it going
    cheers

    Hi Malgo
    yes, I"m glad you mentioned it, I don't think I would have recognized the Castle if you didn't.

    as a cloud lover, this one suits the scene perfectly don't you think? it adds another horizontal layer to go along with the green line and the orange/yellow lines spread across the frame.

    all in all it makes for a very pleasing visual. something different for sure
    cheers

    Hi Silvio
    such a rustic yet beautiful view.
    the history of these buildings must be incredible.
    love the old stone walls, they have so much character and they tell stories. love the rooftops too, and the small round clock. awesome post

    Brilliant everyday scene. Great timing for the cart and the lady in the distance makes for a nice splash of colours.
    I'm flying to Pakistan in two weeks (unfortunately not enough time for Punjab) so it's nice to browse your gallery from that country.

    Beautiful image of a beautiful interior! I really like the symmetry and portrait format is a great choice for this time of photo.
    You captured the intricate architectural details really well.

    Niesamowite kolory! Niebo i pola w tej samej, pomaranczowej tonacji. Zamek wydaje sie malenki w porownaniu do ogromu otaczajacego krajobrazu.
    Nawet nie wiem, czy tam bylam, na pewno nie za moich "fotograficznych" czasow.

    Amazing colours and light. I like the way you can see the background through the bandstand.
    I've been there, briefly, in winter when everything was covered in snow.

    Hi Chris
    Timing doesn't get better than this! Well-done on pressing the shutter button in exactly the right moment. The scene looks really good in defused light, with Mediterranean light there would have been too much contrast.

    Well-spotted detail and brilliant crop. We can see part of the door and part of the cage but in those details we can also recognise the whole objects with their shapes and textures. Nice colours emphasised by diffused light.
