    Hello Ney,
    An imposing building with a very impressive façade, captured under an agreeable ambient light. I like the point of view and the pleasant summery atmosphere. Well exposed with excellent colours and sharpness.

    Hello Bev,
    Very close to the cathedral I seem to remember from my one and only visit to Cologne over twenty years ago, Black and white is an excellent idea for this composition accentuating the strong geometric lines of the roof trusses. Nicely converted with a fine range of tones going from white to black. Very sorry, but no smilies left so late in the day.
    Warm and sunny here today, rising to 18 degrees after a cold start.

    Hello Pierre,
    The church is nicely framed by the adjacent foliage that supply contrasting colour and texture. Good handling of the light and shadow contrasts assures fine colours and clarity.

    Hello Pavle,
    Excellent capture of the beautiful pink and white blossoms that sits nicely against the red building in the background. The rows of vegetables in the foreground give the image depth and perspective and supply contrasting colour. Very good technical realisation.

    Hello Serge,
    I like the well managed light and shadow contrasts and the oblique point of view along the line of tents. The man at rest in his period costume is well placed in the frame; nicely illuminated he makes an excellent focal point.

    Hello Noel,
    The low lying mist brings an air of mystery to the composition and complements the mood perfectly. Well handled the backlight; I like the streaks of blue evident in the sky.

    Hello Chris,
    The warmly illuminated reds of the architecture contrast nicely with the blue pastel tones of the sky. The tight framing works well, serving to put the accent on the subject.

    Hello Luciano,
    Much to see in this well realised cityscape, a complete mishmash of architectural styles in varying states of repair. The foreshortening of perspective occasioned by the telephoto adds another dimension.

    Hello Murat,
    The grey sky nicely complements this wintry scene resulting in a pleasing harmonious palette. The bare trees add a touch of graphism.

    You were right in surmising that the blue sky in my previous posting was added in pp. I thought it looked better than a completely blank one. Yes, bitumen is an alternative word for asphalt in British English.

    I like the point of view very much. We see the monument in the context of its surroundings, both natural and architectural. Agreeable warm colours and excellent clarity.

    Hello Philippe,
    Every town and village in France has its mairie and its church, whatever its size. This example looks in need of some attention, but what can you do if funds are tight. Good management of the backlight assures fine colours and clarity.

    Hello Malgo,
    This modernistic architecture is not everybody's cup of tea, but it is always interesting to see things in a new light. I like the contrast between the unconventional architecture of the museum and the staid lines of the three apartment blocks in the background. Well framed and excellent technical realisation. Have a nice Sunday afternoon.

    Hello Gert,
    Interesting assortment of characters, perhaps they were asking her for a nibble of her ice cream? The interaction between them is nicely captured in this well realised daily life composition. The background architecture adds further interest.

    Hello Chris,
    When I was there in the seventies the Sphinx was surrounded by railings and no access was allowed. The image is very well composed and benefits from superb colour contrasts. Excellent clarity from back to front. A small amount of baksheesh goes a long way in Egypt.
