    Hello Ihsan

    I've seen your Antelope Canyon shots, but it's this one that attracted my attention. I love the compressed perspective you've achieved with your long lens. And the other added bonus is the frame-filling geometries of these old wooden buildings. The sky looks curiously noisy, however.

    Regards

    Hey now Rosemary: that's the business! A lovely, simple street scene, with well-seen repeated patterns, nice and tightly framed. Realistic colour!! I love it!

    Hi Bev

    Not such a surprise that the boat is upright. It's a bilge keeler, which means it has two short stubby keels parallel to each other. Boat design like this is expressly to avoid deep draught, so sailing in shallower waters is possible, and to allow boats to dry out without falling over. But the downside is performance: they don't sail anywhere near as well as fin-keeled boats. And one wonders why the need for so many fenders. The owner must be paranoid! Nice shot by the way!

    Regards

    Will

    Hi Stephen
    these i think are my favorite shots from Malta...the colorful small boats.

    so glad you posted this one.

    the larger white boat in the bg seems so out of place :)

    the height of the small boats in the bow is very attractive, such a steep angle.
    love this one
    cheers

    Hi Ourania
    another great looking scene with this Alfa Romeo.
    it would be sweet to take this car for a beautiful country ride.

    I like the blue colors, the height of the lightpost and the splashes of orange..it all works well together.
    nicely done

    Hi Angel
    the only thing missing to make this photo even more sweet is a lady in a red dress :)
    haha

    lots of contrasts make this work so well, the blue and white contrast, and the black and white contrast.

    fine textures too, especially on the left edge.
    enjoy your day

    Hi Denis
    sometimes these upfront and personal straight on compositions work the best.

    i think another key point of the photo are the stark contrasts between the lime green colors and the dark browns - strong visual impact.

    beauty

    Hello Satya,
    this scene is very lovely and interesting, the little girls are concentrated on something we can't see (probably a little sea animal) and I like how we can distinguish their reactions and characters, even though we can't see their faces either. I think that there's an overall tint that seems a little too dark, Will's workshop has rendered the colours and the scene more lively, maybe gave more impact to the reflections too. I like very much your composition and the placement of the little group in a minimal but delightful and comprehensible setting. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
    Ourania

    Hello Maria,
    This is essentially a portrait - from a distance - of the peon in the environment of his work. The horses may be more beautiful but here they are only partly seen in the background. In the composition the man is balanced by the rake, leaning like him on the railings. It's a nice photo from a kind of place seldom seen on TE, off the normal tourist tracks.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    As you may know I am not particularly interested in cars, old or new, but I do admire well polished old machines that have been so lovingly taken care of for many decades. There are many fine details to watch on this Bentley, but to me the car is just part of a composition that also shows a spectator leaning into the view, three men discussing technical details (they couldn't be talking about the weather, could they?) and a bright red marquee. All these ingredients create a nice ambience that makes the photo well worth watching.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Barbara,
    a very fine composition of diagonal stripes of colours. You calculated the diagonals very aptly, excellent colour definition and framing have rendered the patterns, rhythmical, vibrant and attractive. The texture adds substance. Congratulations and thank you!
