    Hi Ike,

    I particularly like the muted colours and the subtle warm vs cold colour contrast between the lit yellow red wall at left and the shadowed blue grey interior. The tiny human figure adds scale. Good sharpness overall and excellent framing. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    I like the lemon yellow color of the walls and ceiling in this superb interior image. Good backlight and nice reflections in the polished floor. The 3 uniformed officers make a fine focal point. Good repetition of the arches and columns at the sides. Tfs!

    Salut Jean Jacques

    I think I prefer the colour version but this is also very good. The top light has given strong shadows at the bottom. Good graphism and sharpness with a wonderful tonal range. The textural contrast between the stripes of wood and the stone or plaster is also striking. Tfs!

    Hello Serghei,

    You have succeeded in turning an ordinary scene into an extraordinary image! Wonderful silhouettes and graphism with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. I like the gradation from white at the bottom to grey at the top. Tfs!

    Hello Gerrit,

    This peak sort of looks like Mayon volcano which was erupting and closed when I was in the Philippines some years ago. The curved road at right adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The old stone church or mission makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    I like the strong backlight and graphism as well as the long shadows and textured cobblestones catching the light. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. I like the minimalist colour too. The sunbeams are clearly visible. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo, very original photo from Castle Square. With these stairs and from this perspective the whole square shrinked and it looks so defferently and difficult to recognize. in this sunny days the colors are beautiful.

    Hi Craig, Indeed, difficult to believe that in this a bit ruined house the people are still living. Anyway, they are washing laundry. But they have at least warm so they do not need to be afraid of winter. And this car is really a beauty,.

    Hello Samuel

    Welcome back after a very long break! And thanks for replying to my question, albeit 2 years late!! This is a wonderful Autumnal mountain landscape, taken at a good time of day to maximise interest in the sky. Actually for my taste, the colours have been a tad too saturated, and the copyright symbol right across the middle of the frame does the photograph no favours; nevertheless, this is a very effective, well-composed image.

    Regards

    Hello Subhendu

    Excellent framing! And good light management too: it must have been difficult to retain light inside the doorway while keeping the colour in the wall from washing out. I assume we're allowed to award points/smileys again now!

    Hello John

    I fell asleep looking at your photograph, and fell off my chair reading your note! Not really. The image doesn't do your title or the sign justice: it's actually pretty decent! Good depth of field, interesting sky, natural colours, the lead line of the road disappearing far from Dull... Inspired!

    Hello Boa

    The eyes have it! Obviously. I'm with you as far as ballet is concerned; but I can see a tasty photo opportunity when I see one, and I'm certainly seeing one here. Excellent framing and composition; without the passer-by, there's less of a picture. Good work.

    Hello Jean

    There certainly are strong winds! I was sailing in the RS400 Eurocup earlier this year up at Riva, where there's a reliable afternoon thermal wind called the Ora, which blew most days, and on one memorable occasion, reached 28 knots for a couple of hours. Hard work! Riva looks a lot like this, and in turn, I'm reminded of the Cinque Terre area of north west Italy. Beautiful!

    Hello Jean

    As you say, a view, but no roof. You've filled the frame with this famous ruin, and have resisted the temptation to overcook the saturation, for which much thanks! Pin sharp and well exposed. Good work.

    Hi John, Funny title but what a note! Haha, strange idea to make twin villages but why not. For sure it can be good promotion for a dull and boring villages. I tried to find if there is anything in Poland that could join this League, Nuda or Nudno, but unfortunately nothing. Maybe it is not very fascinating but it is not so bad, nice hills and I even see a higher mountain capped with snow, nice pastures. There are more villages that are more dull and boring for sure.
    How you and Gert noticed, and what I always think, the title is very often very important, also good, not pasted note. What would be this photo without them? dull :).

    Hello Chris

    Fine, natural-looking colour, and a beautiful scene. Maybe I wouldn't have stuck the boat in the middle of the frame, but there's plenty of room for her to progress into! Like me, I suspect the occupants are wondering what's through that gap. You're right about that splash of sunlight on the far mountainside.

    Hi John,
    You note explains all! This has really brightened my afternoon after a 'dull' start. Even better is that I saw signs to Boring in Oregon when there recently.
    Very well spotted and making such a fun post. The photo may not rank amongst your most interesting but retains your high standards of post-production and note writing.
    Super.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Rosemary,
    I am pleased that you rectified the lack of a TE post from here. I remember arriving by narrow boat when I was a teenager and loving the feeling of being at the centre of this historic place.
    A very clear and well taken picture with the red sun shades drawing the eye across the water.
    Excellent!
    Kind Regards, Ann
