    Hi Gerrit,

    I suppose if you must say goodbye, this is the way to do it! :) What a lovely sunset of color, the shades of red are pure delight...especially with the touch of blue making it's way into the frame. The kind of moment that simply takes us away on a relaxing little journey into the night. I love the silhouetted figure standing alone on the beach front, the perfect presence to round out this scene. Enjoy the weekend ahead. All the best.

    Friendly regards,

    Jason

    Hi Ourania,

    Whew, you slowed down long enough that I could get back to this one. :) I know I can comment on more than one per day, but I usually run out of enough free time!? Oh, the trials of life, eh? lol

    I too, am absorbing the view...and it's a splendid one with these two central figures dominating the frame with their presence and heavy contrast. I love a good silhouetted figure, and this simply doubles the pleasure. :) And how great that the young lady appears to be shading her eyes, giving credence to the strong daylight that envelopes the scene.

    Perfect choice of black & white, I'm sure we've all done the same to try and compensate for exposure levels...I know I sure have more than once! Besides, it renders a nice artistic effect, almost nostalgic. A lovely view of a lovely view. have a great day ahead. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hello there Mr. Benny,

    Oooh...ribbed, for our pleasure. hehe It does look like giant organ pipes, but my mind always sinks to the lowest levels of perception.

    So, you say this is the "rear upwards view"...seriously, are you just baiting me into a note that I'll regret?? :P I won't go any further, you already understand where it might be headed!?

    You know, I'd say this fits in with the "red" theme, it sure looks to be that color on my monitor. What's really captivating though is the light...my word, whatever you did to come up with this effect is outstanding!

    As you mention Joker, this does have that look and feel of Gotham, the darkened sky in contrast, and what looks to be the bat signal in shadow slowly creeping up from the bottom of the frame is intensely cool!

    Somewhere out there is a person in distress, calling out for help...perhaps all of us, needing more money to afford such an accommodation....juuuuust a bit out of my price range unfortunately!? And by "just,' I mean a LOT! Awesome perspective and more slick processing mate, this is a sweet finished product.

    Cheers from the bat cave,

    Bruce Wayneovitch

    Bonjour Roland,

    Such an impactful color, yeah? Amazing how even the smallest of subjects adorned in red can make such a big impression on a photo. Although our eyes are instantly drawn towards this lady in passing, there are still plenty of surrounding context and details which emerge for our viewing pleasure. Very well timed to have her placed in the open space, while also catching the military personnel in stride. A splendid result an awareness of the opportunity. Bon weekend. All the best.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Hi Luis,

    An architecture lovers delight, La Defense. So many possibilities exist here, and even if architecture isn't your forte, the inner photographer will inevitably find something of interest...and if you do enjoy this subject material, well then...the creative juices can really get flowing.:) This is a wonderful example of taking what's provided and putting it to best use. The geometric effect is superb in this smart composition, a great way to look at things with a fresh perspective, while maintaining a graphic punch. Light, shade and color play a great role in this arrangement, and you've certainly put them on fine display! Enjoy the weekend ahead. All the best.

    Hi Rosemary,

    From one photographer to another, eh...this was quite a stroke of good luck. Sure, the scene may have presented itself to be professional and virtually hand-crafted from experience...but you've done a wonderful job in capturing the essence of the opportunity provided. And technically speaking...the details, colors, textures, exposure, etc. etc. look superb on my monitor. A lot to take in from this single frame, and as someone who loves dogs...it's the perfect compliment and addition to the entire scene. :) Very well done! Enjoy the weekend. Take good care.

    Bonjour Emmanuel,

    Anything to do with France/Paris will always catch my attention, and since I was just watching a movie which is partially centered around a cinema in Paris during WWII, I couldn't help but take notice of this fine trio of pictures. I love the black & white processing you've achieved here, it has quite a nostalgic look and feel about it, and is also a wonderful idea to present this subject in such a manner. A small theater, but big with that "timeless classic" appeal. Nicely done! Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Regards,

    Jason

    Hello Craig, The colours seem OK for me. And what a fantastic view. It is a must with no doubt. But there is so many musts in Italy: Cinque Terre, Pisa, Lucca, Pietrasanta, Napoli, Amalfi, Procida... Gorgeous shot, with stunning sharpness and great composition.

    Have a nice weekend

    Hello Barnabas,

    So already in 1970 you didn't live in Hungary? Interesting note. The red star disappeared in Hungary but it is still in Russia, together with new tsar monuments. Was Hungary the happiest barrack in the Soviet Bloc? Poland was regarded as the merriest barrack in this camp. Excellent quality of this scan. My photos from that time can't be shown. I was in Hungary earlier, in 1966 but I have no photos .

    Hi John, I do not remember this pine, and not important, it is marvelous and such a joy to look at it. Beautiful pine but also these golden grasses are fabulous in this light. What a place for some hiking.

    Hi Sebastian
    A very nice capture of this ancient city, and the photo does seem to tell how ancient the place is, this coud be a scene from any of the past centuries, it seems not much has changed within this vision. Although today this is a modern city, it's old world history comes across really well . A very beautiful historic yet modern shot. A great documentary shot too.

    Hi Inge,
    A very beautiful mirror moment, and more special for me as this is a place I do not have the pleasure of seeing too often. The sense of distance from the world I know and natural beauty is very strong, and I love that. Very nicely managed on the difficult light too, great shot.
