    Ciao, You could also dry laundry in your olive orchard. Joking, it is too far.
    But in summer I also have a washing day in my garden. When there is sun (lately it rains, better to dry at home) I will make photos for fun. Nice composition, it could be for advertisements of washing powder, like Vizir - "more white than white". great colours and excellent sharpness. Simple but attractive.

    Buonanotte

    Every photo brings wonderful memories. I was so happy that you showed me your favorite places, I also love these Tuscany hills. It was so nice to sit there on this terrace, with tea, and to admire this marvelous view. Very nicely composed picture with the curve of the road, cipreses, nice houses. Splendid green field, looks like from velvet. Also in my photo there is a patch of a bit bluish tone on the bottom.
    GRAZIE

    Cioa,

    Clever composition with this cross, here well visible. But what is for me interesting is WS. We can see what was the place for this sculpture, it is a kind of altar. And we see also another , face, that was also transported. It was such a great pleasure to be there with you and I am happy that there was something new also for you. It was such a fun to observe this operation.

    Ciao Carlo,

    I also have these houses on my photo but from far away. Nice view of the canal, beautiful houses. The picture is nicely soft. There is a couple standing on the balcony. The yellow reflection is beautiful, with some blurr. Nice composition and wonderful memories of the splendid day (but the next one was even better :))

    Hello Leszek

    A prosaic and commonplace but quirky little composition. The wall colour is vital here, and the tight framing. It is a photograph because of your selective vision, picking out this detail, has made it so! I like it a lot.

    Hello Robert

    Taken from the Ponte di Rialto I think. For me it's the beautiful light that makes this photograph work so well: somehow it manages to look like a painting. Nice sharpness and good depth of field from an aperture of f/11.

    Hello Leonardo

    This is a classic - or perhaps I should say iconic image of London. A very familiar scene, but achieved with taste and technical skill, particularly in the expert balancing of the various light sources. Compositionally strong too, with the bridge pointing our eyes across the river towards the famous landmark. Nicely done.

    he is fully absorbed not to fall into the water of the fountain or on the pavement, and so does not notice neither the statue nor the photographer.

    Hello Cristina

    Well, today's bank holiday, so I suppose this is your last posting for a while as you'll be back to work tomorrow. I don't suppose it will help your mood if I tell you I'll be sailing in the Adriatic for the next two weeks! As to your photograph: I suspect it's typical of your style that you search out the less visited places. I confess I don't know the Fondation Louis Vuitton, but you make it look really interesting. The immediate impact comes from your use of the Dutch tilt, which certainly adds extra dynamism. I hardly ever use the technique myself, but you've convinced me to add it to my repertoire. The figures are so important here. Imagine the shot without them! But I'm disappointed that it's been in the public domain for several hours now and no-one else has seen fit to post a comment. I think since the site had its major problems a couple of months ago, a lot of people have left, or at least stopped posting for the time being: there seems to be generally less activity here than before. So don't be too despondent (or as I said before, try posting some garishly coloured stuff. Works for me!)

    Kind regards

    Hello Korkut

    A lady posing for you perhaps? Or is this serendipity? Either way it makes an arresting and dramatic image. The eyes have it! But it's the disjuncture of scale that is the photograph's raison d'être. Another cracker.

    Hello Lisa

    If I didn't know you better, I'd swear this was over-saturated in P'shop! But I don't think you'd stoop to that, and although I've not been to WA, I've seen enough of the outback to know that the colours can certainly sing. Around the Corner Country, the earth is redder than this, but still in-your-face technicolour. Of course the other crucial aspect of this photograph is the impeccable thirdsy composition. Like the sound of the lobster, but sad that you felt you had to miss the lunar eclipse.

    This is a delightful view from above. From this angle everything looks so neat and pretty. It makes me think of a toy bridge across an artificial river. The colours and reflections in the water are lovely.

    Hello Claude

    The lone "gladiator" certainly makes this photograph even more special. It's an excellent monochrome conversion, with a full range of tones (too many seem to favour a lighter overall look; you and I prefer lower key!). I love the lines of the arena forcing our eyes to the light centre, where all the action once took place. The sky too reminds me of the days of red filters...

    Kind regards

    Nice old architecture well lighted to describe the matter of the walls, but as your title states, the subject is not this one but the lady seen from the back.

    Hi Craig

    good framing, but the stairs at right direct my eye on the green Tshirt of the walking boy, balancing the sweeping lady, and contrasting with the overall red hues of the houses and stairs.

    People presence is important in this shot, describing the every day life
