    Hello Philippe,

    This is a most attractive scene!
    You have added interest by bringing attention to the f/g boats and setting the scene.
    Those houses, facing the harbour are colourful and varied and lead the view naturally into the distance.

    It's a fine exposure, sharp and bright.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ha! Ha! Denis, this proves what my friend always maintains, that sempervivums need very little soil to grow! Here, you have shown a whole colony thriving on a tiled roof!
    It's an unusual subject for you but still worthy of attention.
    You have angled the rows of tiles nicely in your shot, used an important angle in the corner to create depth and captured a sharp, colourful photograph of the roof.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Gert,

    I wonder what the city will look now!
    I imagine that the photographs you possess will contain most interesting, historic details to compare with the city now!

    You have a managed to obtain an excellent viewpoint, detailing the roof materials initially but then showing an expansive view over the city. It's much like the bird's-eye view shots that we like to take today, the only exception is that yours is in black and white!
    It's a well composed photograph, the soaring bird emphasising the viewpoint!!

    Thanks for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Good Morning Robert,

    This is simple and beautiful.
    The features are carefully arranged in your composition for maximum effect.
    It reminds me of a Japanese silk picture.

    Hello Jorge,

    I actually like this photograph better than yesterday's because it invites us in, to share the spectacle and feel the huge scale of the theatre. The figure before us helps in this respect.
    Also, this is even more like a fan opening because the seating area is not split and we follow the curved rows from f/g to b/g, quite journey!!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    Sorry, but couldn't you have found a taller fountain!!!

    This is amazing!
    I have seen it before but it still amazes me!
    I wonder if the people nearby have to wear raincoats all the time!

    I like how you have included just enough b/g information, in the form of boats and buildings, to set the context and the scale of this water jet. But, of course, the main attention is on the jet, magnified as it competes with the clouds!!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Good Morning Ecmel.

    You have shown us a fine bird's-eye view of Siena, clear and well saturated.
    The Piazza del Campo is strongly placed in the frame, with its associated tower, tall and imposing.
    There is a lovely blend of terracotta and blue in this well composed shot.

    My warm regards,

    Good Morning Ike,

    If a person did not understand the colours of autumn, you would be able to present this photograph and all would be explained!
    It is a sublime example, too, of strong f/g colours impacting and leading by gradation into the b/g, where the black-textured giant rocks of the Bidean nam Bian come as a complete contrast!
    It's a wonderful photograph, good as a thumbnail but even better full size!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    This has been a real eye-opener!
    My impressions of Madeira did not contain images like this!

    As a scene full of strong textural details and showing a fine composition, this is excellent.
    I do like the juxtaposition of the striding figure and the arrow, in total opposition!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Dear Constantino,

    A very well cropped scene, places the boat strongly in the frame, the ropes perfectly positioned , too!
    I like how you have given so much attention to the water reflections on the hull of the boat, matched by the much more definite sun reflections in the water. They add mood to the scene.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Piotr,

    The sunlight on these mountain slopes has a remarkable effect and seems to make lines of contrasting light and shadows, all leading to the valley floor in the r/h corner of the frame. From here, there is a natural trek to the snow covered pinnacle.
    A scene of awesome crags and peaks!

    Hello Takero,

    This is a curious collection of items to be displayed in the snow but, I imagine, they were of great use in a historical sense.
    They do make a fine 'still life' shot and there is no doubt that your photograph is both sharp and well composed.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Zbigniew,

    Most people would have posted a harbour shot or a shot of the skyscrapers but you have been able to compose a photograph combining the two in an excellent, sharp exposure! The clarity is quite amazing!
    The boats are competing like mini skyscrapers in the f/g, the skyscrapers are hustling for precedence in the b/g and the two extremes are neatly linked by the green boat. It's a cracker of a shot!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    You have composed a lovely photograph, where the steep flight of steps guides us irrevocably through a scene of strong, eclectic, surface textures, colours and changing light. It's an artist's dream!

    Those skyscrapers give quite modern background. Colourful old boats make funny combination with the skyline. Charming sunny view with lots of details to look at.

    That is quite a collection of old stuff. Obviously they have been gathered here for display. All grey and brown they make very nice harmonous combination.

    Sheer size difference makes this one quite attractive. Bright red paint catches attention well. And you framed this quite carefully with the ship front reaching top left corner.
