    Hello Chris
    Wow! Great picture of the cupolas and the accompanying architecture all displayed with fine clarity and lovely colours. You also made best use of the vivid blue sky to further enhance the impact of the copper coloured cupolas. Excellent tight framing with perfect exposure. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

    Hello Stephen
    A must attractive composition with fascinating details depicted with piin sharp clarity. The window in the background is a very nice element too adding a bit of variety to the warm tones. Nice diagonal composition and the figure with the musical instrument immediately brought goddess Saraswati to my mind :). Great camera work and thanks for sharing it. Have a great day.

    Hello Craig
    The vine, the window and the clothes hanging out to dry are lovely details with the equally lovely pink wall in the background. The two women busy with their work are placed well in the frame and bring it to life. Attractive photo with real eye catching colours and perfect tight framing. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

    Hi Ourania,

    Why, a black & white...you bet! :) There's something sensual about this shot, not in a sexual manner of speaking of course...but a quality that flows so well with the subject and monochrome scheme at hand.

    Always difficult working under such low light, I fully understand and appreciate the challenge presented. I don't use a flash either, making it all the more frustrating at times.

    I think what you've captured here is eloquent...the distinct highlight of form produced from the backlight, and the varied sections of lit details are outstanding. A result which carries a stage production atmosphere and artistic type of integrity. Bravo! Hope all is going well. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Serghei,

    I had the same first thought as Craig, what is happening to the left of this scene that has peoples attention?

    What a great slice of daily life on the streets of Southern California, there's so much to take in from this snapshot in time with an array of instruments, activity and human interest. And best of all, the little boy up front is an adorable facet in this capture. He feels to project that childlike curiosity that we all perceive through this imagery.

    A vibrant atmosphere, nicely observed, well framed and taken at a wonderful moment to capture so much of the character in this small section of street. Super shot my friend! Hope all is going well. Take good care.

    Cheers from cloudy desert skies,

    Jason

    Hola Luis,

    Always nice to see different sides of any town, and this certainly fills that idea...literally, it's the SIDE of the village. :) Such rich, beautiful colors in the earth which combine with the surrounding greenery for a most attractive color palate. I think your choice of frame and colors enhances the overall impact of the aforementioned scheme. Having tourists visible aids in the great sense of scale from this composition and vantage point, a well constructed photo indeed. This could very well be mistaken for a cross section of a jungle theme. :) Hope all is going well. Take good care.

    Bonjour Serge,

    As photographers, it's too bad we don't have control over the elements, eh? :) The sun may not have been in an ideal position, but it doesn't take anything away from this classic and stunning visual on Manarola...I never tire of seeing this view. Considering the circumstances, you've done well to counter the incoming, harsh light...there are many fine details and colors to enjoy. And speaking of enjoyment, it looks like there are plenty of people taking advantage of that same sun. :) Hope all is going well. Take care.

    Amicalement,

    Hi Gert,

    Sounds quite like a trip anyone would enjoy, virtually footloose and carefree. :) Isn't it amazing how much more is extracted from the experience when it's not as stressful or under a time crunch?

    A beautiful shot, full of interesting details surrounding this lovely local, right down to her bowl of soup. And I couldn't agree more, I too find these simple, unassuming daily life images to be the most intriguing...and I'm glad you've shared so many of them here for us to enjoy as well. Hope all is going well. Take good care.

    Ciao Luciano,

    Ahh yes, this is a "lousat" kind of scene/subject for sure! :) And why not, it's beautiful. When nature provides the canvas, it makes our jobs easy, right? lol Palm trees, blue sky, sand and surf...you bet, not a surprise one would want to photograph a place like this. Plain and simple, and the enticement is well conveyed. Hope all is well. Take it easy.

    Hi Saša,

    As the saying goes, good things come in small packages. :) A beautiful close-up of this little guy, the sharp focus and detail is impressive. And the shallow depth of field keeps full concentration on the birds features and colors. Something we see every day, but when presented as a main subject, takes on a new appeal. Very well done to catch this opportunity...these little ones are always quick to move! :) Hope all is well. Take care.

    Bonjour Claude,

    This is undoubtedly a shot which is instantly recognizable as yours from the gallery. :) A simple daily life scene, but seen and presented with much more than a snapshot of interest...you have a great ability to take the "routine' and make it appealing. Love the strong combination of colors and human interest. As always, tres bien fait! Hope all is well. Take good care.

    Hi Danos,

    A defiant pose from this mannequin, and it's a good thing he's been placed outside on the balcony to get some sun...looks rather pale, don't you think? lol

    A fun shot, something out of the ordinary which infuses some humor into the every day life of passers by. The touch of graffiti and broken facade gives this a rugged appeal. Nicely spotted and taken. Hope all is going well. Take care.

    Always a challenge to photograph something so iconic in a new way, but this accomplishes that feat with great allure. A beautiful spread of seasonal lights to accompany the hint of the Eiffel Tower. Instantly recognizable, but framed and taken with fresh intrigue. Hope all is well. Take care.

    Hi Gerrit,

    I often see many people selling oranges/fruit along the sides of the roads where I live, but they're usually confined to the bed of a truck...this is a much grander and widespread display. Quite the spread, and surely makes for a colorful scene of daily life. Indeed, looks like a good harvest, I only hope his sells were just as much. A fine angle taken to show the vast amounts of product. Hope all is going well. Take care.

    Hello Gert
    The simple man obviously doesn't mind having his photograph taken as he leans gently on the deadly looking cannon. While it is impossible to guess his thoughts, the composition with the oblique pov is fantastic. There is also a hint of a tank in the background. Dark reminders of the terrible decades of the war that the country sustained. Great capture and thanks for sharing it.

    Hi Pierre,
    Dark season around December makes me really like the beach scenes like this. Impressive big pool surrounded with straw covered huts and tropical palmtrees. Just lovely!
