    Hello Malgo

    A fine, warm golden interior shot. The chandelier takes center stage but it's the backdrop that is most impressive. Congratulations.

    A classic scene, well taken. I (re)visted the Acropolis this summer and actually quite liked the wide fence around it to keep the visitors at a certain distance.

    Hello Maciej

    I like this scene. The position of the man in the front and his shadow falling are good elements in the picture.

    Brrr...I don't like the coldness of winters, but I must admit it can be beautiful for pictures. Here's an example. All the best to you and yours.

    A stunning shot. Heavy saturation & a great/original pov. The result is almost surrealistic beauty. The wood looks gigantic. Great work. Thanks for sharing & have a fine weekend.

    Hello Subhendu

    The man's position - in meditation or sport (or both) - is a great capture here. The figures and the bike in the bg play their role in the composition too. A striking shot. Thanks for sharing it & have a great weekend.

    A very playful shot, which only increases the beauty of the cathedral. The lantern is beautifully placed and the curve of the window is great too. The cloud/haze in the reflection adds even more mystery to the scene. A great result. Thanks for sharing & have a fien weekend.

    THis is a terrific silhouette shot. Very strong in composition and contrast. The literary reference is another plus. Congratulations & have a good weekend.

    Bonjour Jean Jacques

    Very kitchy, but quite intriguing nevertheless. Great colours. The tip of the lantern is the odd element in the frame. Perhaps a pity it's in front of the text, on the other hand it strangely seems to work. I like the result. Congratulations & have a fine weekend.

    A picture with a very organic, soft feel to it. An intimate architecture shot, that seems quite contradictory, but it's not. Great picture, Brian. Congratulations & have a fine weekend.

    Hello Frank

    A strange, but fascinating shot. The two borders just in the frame and the that long white horizontal. And then the gate opening to...god know what? Is there something beyond, or only the deep blue sea? I like the shot.

    Have a fine weekend.

    Hello Ann

    A fine, wide sweeping view of the bay. The castle island in the bay looks very impressive, but it's the couple with dog that really crowns the shot. Some great textures & light on the rocks in front too. From this pov it's difficult to work out how big/small they are. That's yet another positive about the shot. Great work! Thanks for sharing it.

    Bonjour Gilles

    You're posting a fine series of night shots from Beziers. Deserted even by the colours, the town becomes a beautiful ghost town. A feeling of other-world-ness to the familiar scenes. Wonderful idea, well executed.

    Merci pour partager & bonne WE.

    Hello Ourania

    This is a great shot. The bl/w contrasts are very strong and wonderfully bring out the side of the head and the gesticulating hands.

    The WS version is even more impressive. That kind of heavy PP only works only rarely. Here it is spot on!

    Keep posting & congratulations.

    Ciao Carlo

    A great through-the-screen shot. The screen filter adds mystery. It reminds me of a still from some kind of art movie. I almost expect the couple to start to move.

    A great street view. Wonderful contrast between the facades with their colourful miradores, and the giant church at the end of the street.
