    Hi Gert,

    This is undoubtedly your style, and I love it! A relatively simple scene, and as you've pointed out previously, I too enjoy the unassuming character of a "run of the mill," every day moment. Her shirt is a perfect match with the wall, but it's a couple of smaller elements that grab my attention. The turquoise color of her shoes, and the touch of neon green "PUB" lighting are the perfect accents...not to mention a black & white backdrop for delightful contrast to the entire setting....or should I say, sitting. :) enjoy the new day. take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Bonsoir Serge,

    Although there are many sunset/sunrise pictures, it's always an attractive play that nature puts on...and I always enjoy the atmosphere that is projected through the imagery. Calm and soothing, the sun is making one last effort to shine on the day, or is just beginning...depending on whether it's coming or going. :) No matter the case, it's a lovely moment. i really like the long stretching line-up of silhouetted lamp posts and the soft caress of sunlight they've received. Simple, and yet very beautiful. Bonne journee. Take it easy.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Hello Serghei,

    it was difficult to pass on the beautiful young lady featured in your picture posted today, but as soon as I saw this one it immediately caught my attention. The gleaming light reflected off the domes is a work of art in itself, making the already impressive architecture that much more appealing. The clear blue sky makes for a wonderful backdrop of contrast, and of course...just the fact it's blue is a winning color in my book. ;) Hoping I can achieve the same result as this...clear, sharp and concise. I can't see you in the reflection though?? lol Have a great day buddy, see you soon.

    Cheers from the desert,

    Hi John,

    Keep a close eye on your mail, I've also sent you and Cricri some Arizona sun. :) What better way to spend a rainy day indoors, this is a lovely setting with so much open space and warm colors to sit back and enjoy in the company of friends. You don't have to be from Antwerp to show what makes it worth a visit, and this is proof of that! I really like how you utilized the red lamp shade in the foreground of this composition, linking it with the other and aiding in the perception of depth. Smooth, even light and congenial atmosphere well conveyed. Enjoy the new day. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Salut Cricri,

    Je serais heureux d'envoyer une partie de la soleil de l'Arizona ainsi, en fait, John a demandé à certains comme bien. :) Je serais sûrement profiter d'une baignade dans cette piscine en ce moment, j'ai envie de plonger dans ton image...qui semble être tout à fait rafraîchissant. Peux-tu me faire une faveur, et assures-toi que la place reste vide de gens...Je ne voudrais de ne soumettre personne à mon physique cruel !? lol Attirer et accueillante, le temps pour une baignade et un "refroidir!" * Splash * :) Bonne journée ma chere ami,

    Howdy Brrrrr-ian,

    Glad you enjoyed todays sun filled picture, but it looks as if it's yet to arrive on your shores...at least based on this picture. :) What a neat shot this, so futuristic looking with the metallic(?) surfaces. I think you might have another alien aircraft on your hands here. Love the processing work you've performed, the colors, light and mood are mysterious and dark....just like an alter-ego perhaps?? Has the Mother Ship called you home yet? lol

    Moody and fascinating, but obviously practical and well needed to keep natures wrath at bay. It can't keep your lens away though, and for that, we all get to enjoy this compelling imagery. Very well done, creatively composed and presented.

    Now, to the Isle of Dogs...is that literal? Sounds like a great place for someone like me who enjoys them...in fact, got another "sitting" job lined up for a few days starting Thursday. Woof! Enjoy the soon to arrive snatch of sun. (you dirty man you! hehe)

    Cheers from the hot half,

    Hi Bev,

    That sure is a smooth balancing act alright, almost looks unreal...and aptly named for good measure. :) I'm sure a lot of people would see this and think it was something eye-catching, but a good photographer will always take it to the next level and be able to present it with much more intrigue and attractive qualities...and you've done just that!

    Balanced on many levels, this is a very pleasing result and smart composition. Low tide has created the opportunity, and you took full advantage. Guess it will be a while before it's time to set sail though!? :) Have a great day. All the best.

    Bonjour Jean,

    It doesn't need to be a national holiday to enjoy some good 'ol fireworks, right? :) A dazzling display under the night time skies, the exposure setting has rendered some lovely streamers and just the right light to see them clearly. I struggle with this particular subject, so I will gladly sit back and enjoy your results just as well. Bonne journee. All the best.

    Hi Malgo,

    Catch Of The Day, I love the raw emotion you've captured from this guy...even if he is angrily wielding a knife!? And how great that your intention was to photograph the "ugly red fish," but came away with something much more exciting and, dare I say...crazy?!! :) You managed to get both, and for that I applaud your ability to remain focused and calm enough not to miss the opportunity provided. Ugly fish, and apparently, and ugly personality....but cool hair. lol Now, run away! Great shot! Enjoy the new day. All the best. Let's just hope we encounter more affable people, yeah? :)

    Hi Costantino,

    It's been fun following along your summer journeys, showing us many interesting and scenic places from the isles...and of course, plenty of that delightful Mediterranean blue. :) The red barge really stands bold against the color of the water and light in the sky. Another beautiful view over land and sea. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Hi Burak,

    A nice thought to Robin Willimans, and a picture to associate the journey into the beyond. A well framed composition that utilizes the long and converging perspective to take us along for a journey towards the horizon. Clear, sharp and conceived with good intention. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    This feels like a very old place, and you captured an excellent sense of depth and perspective in your view. The cat is a strange and amusing additn to the view, especially as he appears to be looking at you with as much surprise as I am looking at him.

    This is a beautiful view of the city, and without a doubt the boat is the star of the show, that thing is gigantic!! Very nice composition of the whole scene, I guess the astronomical prices are worth it to have this image in your collection. I hope the food was too!

    Hi Jenine,
    Welcome to trekearth! This is a very beautiful view of this extremely impressive cathedral, all of the sweeping arches compliment each other so well and make the image so pleasing to view. You managed the light really nicely, which looks like it would have been quite difficult, and the golden tones of the lighting is perfect for this place. Wonderful composition.
    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Agnes,
    A fantastic castle, in particular I love the facing on the cliff that makes it seem like the very cliff face is part of the construction. Having the people o the beach here gives an intense sen of height and scale to the castle.
    And this has been converted to flats? How cool would it be to say you love in a place like this, haha.

    Hi Roland,
    The colors are beautiful here, but they do speak of threatening nature and a place which is not quite safe. The lead of the water draws the eye perfectly through the frame too, liking the foreground to the fine steam coming from the ground. The sky is wonderful to, full of activity and drama.

    Hello Roland,

    Nature is amazing!
    It is hard to imagine these deep oranges and purples being produced so naturally!
    You have chosen a very good viewpoint, making effective use of the tiny stream and composing the scene very well. I like the human interest, the sense of scale and depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Gladys,
    Amazing colors in this sunset, and really nicely done in managing the light so that we can still see detail of those boulders in the land. I am glad to see that the wizards spell has worked, and this giant dragon is crossing the sky to do his bidding :) those clouds really do have an amazing reptilian feel to them, they look wonderful.

    Hi Stephen,
    This is a scene straight from my favourite Sinbad movie, was there by any chance a Minotaur rowing your boat? As I look at this my mind casts back to ancient legends, and I can easily envisage the rocky gates here slowly closing under some spell the blue tone in the water are amazing, so vivid and bright. It would make me think of nuclear material were it not such an obviously beautiful and natural place. Nice one.
    Cheers
