    Ha! Ha! Ryszard, if only you could have persuaded the swans to go in the other direction, they would have been the perfect lead up the river. As it is, they are still useful as a focal point and the river leads very well towards the attractive, long, imposing buildings.
    The edgings of snow and ice reveal the coolness of the weather and link well with the icy coloured sky.

    Oh, yes, Lars, a fine title to accompany an equally fine photograph.
    Who can predict what will happen in the next few months!
    We were surprised by Brexit; the U.S.A was equally surprised by the presidential choice!

    Your photograph, though, leaves no doubts; it is incredibly sharp, works well as a symmetrical composition and uses the steps as an effective intro.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    This was a well taken opportunity to give an interesting, shapely, natural border to your photograph.
    Even from the thumbnail it looked good.
    You have handled the lighting well with the strong contrasts between f/g and b/g.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Murat
    A nice fun scene with the promise of lots of fun, but with no people visible it has an eerie silence. The comes off the sky are really appealing. This reminds me if the opening scene of the movie The Lost Biys

    Hi Peter
    There's a huge amount of interest in your photo, every building is something to study in great detail. Beautiful encompassing view and a wonderful sunrise breaking through and creating very fine colours in the sky. Great photo

    Hello Sergio,

    This may be a modern town but you have shown us a part which looks exceptionally old, created with stone.
    I like your close viewpoint of the bridge, so that it becomes an immediate link, over the chasm, to the lovely church, with flying buttresses.
    The light brings out the warmth in the stones and you have collected these details with fine clarity.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gyorgy,

    This is beautiful, really beautiful!
    On the ground, the snow is like a blanket; in the air the sky is a cornflower blue and the two are joined by tall verticals of green and silver.
    A perfect composition!

    Thank you for adding the w/s of your dog, he is the fun!

    Hello Iain,

    I read your notes with interest and wonder if I would be brave enough to travel such unstable routes!
    Having said that, the soldier doesn't look in any way threatening, just happy to be part of the group.
    It's a fine photograph, your focal figure well placed on a b/g that is seriously vivid, in fact his combat outfit is very well camouflaged!!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Krzysztof ,

    Your well chosen aspect and upward leading steps, create a fine linear perspective and the pink walled house provides a block.
    The figures are good focal images which do not propel us hastily onwards, so there is plenty of time to absorb the details of the galleries on either side.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    You have created a photograph which mimics a beautiful watercolour painting.,
    I love how the horizontal layers follow one another, losing clarity as they recede into the distance, and ending with a misty b/g that is almost warm with its creamy/amber hues. You have created a wonderful sense of depth and record of Nature's beauty.

    I just might have cropped a little of the sky to give more of a rule of thirds.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gert,

    I understand your indecision for each photograph tells much about this part of India. The similarities between the two are the obvious, recent rain and the bare-footed condition of most of the people. ( I know I keep coming back to the lack of footwear but it really surprises me!)
    This does look very much as if it is part of a temple area, especially with the stone pavement rather than the unmade road.
    I love the informality of the 'shops' which seem, to me, very much like stalls that accompanied fairs when I was a child.
    There is a wonderful sense of laissez-faire around these people. I don't get the feeling that they will be suffering from stress, like many people nowadays!

    Thanks for sharing these, Bev :-)

    Hi Wolfgang
    Is a very impressive structure and give composed the photo beautifully. The level of detail in the minerett is really cool. I like the touch of red in the alleyway too, a nice compliment to the deep blue.

    Hi Silvio
    Amazing sight, the layers in the sky seem to be getting to mimick the layers in the mountains, and every element had this surreal colour and light. Beautiful scene, really well captured

    Those red peppers look just great. And I've never seen them presented like that. Well chosen close angle chows details clearly.
