    Hello Jean,

    You have certainly captured the mood of the sea, with its soaring waves and exploding foam!
    I like how the main wave is in the f/g but, there is evidence of it being repeated in the the b/g!
    The grassy f/g anchors the shot and brings into contrast the grey, murky nature of the rest of the scene.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    I just loved reading your notes with the inclusion of the local names. There is such a difference in the Aboriginal names and the European ones. And, how could anyone with a name like 'Potts' be anything other than rich!

    A nicely angled shot gives us an informative view of the Art Deco buildings, with their soft pastel shades. Although the Carisbrooke is the focal image with its fine pillared facade, I can't help being drawn to the Sringfield, with its most attractive windows and small shutters, that open like wings!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Nicole,

    I can only imagine how you felt as you took this shot!
    To be so close to so many wild animals must set your heart a tingle!

    Water is such an essential to us all that it is a natural place to see them gathered.
    I would imagine that some would be on watch for the approach of predators!

    I'm sure there would have been constant movement, which you have coped with well, and given us a sharp photograph to enjoy.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Krzysztof,

    My first though was how well you have positioned the bridge in the frame. Then I noticed how many people were assembled, giving the though that - 'I hope the bridge is strong enough!'

    The surrounding conifers and steep, rocky cliffs show a most dramatic location.

    I do wish you had been able to show us a photograph of the castle as a w/s. Its beauty is intriguing.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Craig,

    You are my neighbour, today.

    There is such an eclectic mix of balconies that it's easy to get the impression that one person had one built and neighbours, not wishing to be outdone, copied and began a trend! They are as prolific as bees in a swarm!

    I know that balconies are popular in Valetta, but your photograph qualifies just how many!
    Its a fine shot, sharp, colourful and perfectly highlighting your intention.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Interesting view showing those colourful houses hanging high on a riverside wall. I like those arch details giving buidings quite different character.

    I like boats too, especially old style ones like this. Backlight gives contrasty result on this. Wertical framing fits well.

    Hi Stephen,
    I remember this fountain well, as it is near hotels I've stayed in. Backlight looks particularly good on the water sprays. I also like the tropical green background.

    Hi Subhendu
    Interesting idea, the large dark surround does draw string attention to the light area in the centre, and even though I couldn't see what it was from the thumbnail, it intrigued me to look deeper. I like your framing too, I wouldn't know how to frame a shot like this, your idea works well.

    Hi Angel
    This is really beautiful, an everyday scene that countless people would pass, but I wonder how many stop a moment to appreciate the beauty as we can now with your photo. The depth of the laneway, the colors of the flowers, the play of light and shadow, all combined superbly

    Hi Carlo
    A photographers eye to see this, a very cool scene that attracts the eye and confuses the mind. I looked a while at the thumbnail and could not work out what this was! Even in full size it was not immediately obvious. Excellent photo and great title.

    Well worth the extra time there, this is a wonderful cityscape. The sky is superb with a fascinating amount of color and light, while the city looks fantastic and so sharp! I love that the tower is red too, it makes it stand out so much more amongst all the various tones of blue. Very cool photo

    Those are very fine fishing boats, they look in great condition and have fantastic colors. A far cry from the ones I see in Ireland! The sky is superb and has such different colors from the boats. Great composition too.

    Hi Ourania
    Great cathedrals all over the world have the long and detailed history's involving famous people but there can be something a little ostentatious about that in my mind. This little building is simple and its beautiful story is simple too,just as the message a religious building gives out should be. A story of a simple miracle and a simple and beautiful little building.to share it with.

    The shadow of the bells is really nicely considered too, you took s perfect moment for this photo.

    Thanks as alwyas

    Hi Arindam
    What a fantastic moment and how brilliant you were able to capture it?. I've spent some time trying to photograph these little creatures and I always find them so skittish and so fragile? I once spent hours in a field surrounded by thousands of them and still found them hard to photograph,my smallest movement would send them all flying. This is a truly beautiful moment and must surely be considered good luck?
    It is a beautiful butterfly and your friends hand is beautiful too. Though I would never normally notice nail varnish, in this view it is an important part of the scene as the gentle color adds to the elegance of your friends hand. She is holding her hand in a way very suited to the scene eiht the butterfl. Fantastic scene!
    Cheers

    Hi Terez
    Nice interior shot of this mansion. Normally I am not a fan of interior shots of buildings but there is a great mood to this which is really appealing, I would not be at all surprised to look hard and see a ghost somewhere in the scene as there is such a strange unique feeling to the muted light. Really nicely done
    Best wishes
