    Bonjour Christiane,

    The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful.
    I could just imagine riding a horse quietly in this place, enjoying the sunshine and the wild, beautiful scenery.
    You have included good leads and interesting details of relections.

    Kind regards,

    Bev :-)

    Hello Will,

    This is so much a record of the times!
    People are so wrapped up in their mobile phones that real conversations are put on the back-burner!
    If this were a comedy sketch, the couple would be conversing to each other via their phones.

    On the skill side, this is a really well cropped scene, the attention firmly on the main couple using a good shallow dof.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    Sometimes, we can enjoy a photograph just because we admire the fine composition and, to me, this is one such shot.
    You have positioned the camera so well so that the buildings are overlapping in an engaging way and the monument is exactly where it should be for a strong focal image.
    The people enliven the scene in a perfectly relaxed way.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Danos,
    Beautiful panorama postcard style sunset view. Sea is quite calm and reflect those vibrand colours charmingly. A great place to just relax and see evening getting darker.

    Wonderful shot of this lemur. It seems that this creature is as interested about you as vice versa. I had no idea that they are so reachable in wilderness. Excellent sharp shot.

    Hi Malgo,
    Yes there are lots of local traditions in Switzerland, that foreigners have no idea of. So you were lucky. Joyful group portrait on these street side bar tables. I also like the vivid background colours.

    Wonderful facade well combined with that palmtree and clear blue sky. Style is definitely Art Deco, but furthermore those stripe details are also truly original.

    Hello Craig,

    Knowing your tastes, there is just about everything you could want in a photograph.
    Though the girls attracted my attention first, because I love to study faces and body language, I soon recognised the almost brash advertising, the drains and the crumbling walls.
    It's a pity we keep having to mention Beta but there is no doubt, the shots look infinitely better on that site!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    We cannot see the described slopes but we can see and appreciate the quality of the walls and their fine state of repair. The whole scene looks warm and mellow under the welcome sunlight.
    The composition is good, with the pillars marking the thirds line and strong guides to lead us inwards.
    The single figure attracts our attention, gazing upwards, and immediately settles the sense of scale.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Will,

    I enjoyed your notes as well as the photograph.
    Those two girls leave us using our imaginations ... not a bad thing!
    In my day, we would have been having a secretive cigarette, without being spotted!
    It's a shot that stirs a narrative!
    I'm surprised that you haven't added it to your 'Two Girls' theme.

    Good to see you posting again,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Benny,

    I like shots like this.
    It takes a keen eye to spot the possibilities of a photograph but when executed the colours are bold, the lamps make great focal images, especially when backed up by their shadows and the shadows created by the architecture almost frame the subjects.

    Thanks for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    Since I have been posting photographs from Germany, I thought I would view yours from this country. It really has been difficult to find one that I hadn't already critiqued!
    Now this shot stood out!
    The line of boats, showing repeating shapes and colours, made a most attractive thirds, separation line as well giving a real 'punch' to the f/g. The other line of boats follows an opposing diagonal creating a most attractive composition.
    The flags are tall and colourful and help to draw attention towards the b/g hills. There's a lot to see and enjoy.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Luis,

    This looked good as a thumbnail and even better full size!
    The scenery is wild yet attractive, the sort of place that explorers love.
    Even the blue sky, with its inclusion of fluffy clouds, is helping you!
    And, of course, the reflections in the water are just amazing, giving double the view!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    Sometimes people have to be reminded to look up and this is the reason why ... ceilings can be quite amazing!
    Though the view would seem, at first to be symmetrical, the opposing sides have completely different colours and patterns. That matters not, for you have revealed the details to us clearly and we don't have to crick our necks looking at it!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    Now this is unusual!
    It is not Christmas, you make no mention of a festival and it doesn't resemble an orrery!
    Whatever its purpose, it does make an attractive display for a man with a camera! The different displays of light and shadows on the spheres create quite 3D images.
    It's a nicely composed b/g, with the angle of the buildings well placed on the thirds line.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Federico,

    You have chosen a very good aspect which not only gives quite a symmetrical composition but also has the setting sun behind it and reveals the fantastic light reflections on the Arno. It does look amazingly attractive.

    On the down side, on the Beta sight, there are lots of dust specks visible in the sky, suggesting your lens may need a clean and a halo (possibly from sharpening) around the buildings. However, they are not so distracting on this site so 2 points would seem fair.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Malgo,

    I can only imagine the sounds and sights on such an all inclusive carnival day!
    These guys got a double treat, to be on your photograph and to have a beer at the best pub in town!
    I like this close-up, full of good humour.

    Did you have a drink?
    We found the prices quite expensive but it was important to sample some of the different pubs/hotels.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
