    Hello Gosia - The contrasting blue and yellows gives this image huge appeal and helps to define the inner and outer spaces really well. I like the few figures that break up the symmetry; they are very well positioned.

    As always your night shots are very well presented.

    What a lovely shot Wolfgang. We cannot see the child's face and yet he/she is the centre of attraction here and we can see just how much the parents are captivated by his/her presence. Beautifully managed, the fountain of water has just enough detail to give the context without detracting from the scene at all. A superb family portrait.

    Two colourful characters bracket the Equal Marriage Rights Now! poster and underline the diversity of people who inhabit our world and your notes prompt me to look back in history and consider how, over the years what was once totally unacceptable behaviour has shaken off much of its negative connotations. Due,in part, to the bravery of those who stand up and voice their malcontent.

    A well presented and informative note that highlights the skewed values of our world.

    Keep on fighting for what you believe in Lisa!

    Good choice to go with the colour in this street shot Klaudio; those reds really pull the eye and contrast brightly with the more subdues palette. I like the interaction between the couple with the panda adding his own facially expressed comment.

    Good observational street shot.

    Hello dear Lisa - I'm playing catch-up on TE and my eye immediately fell on the lovely purplish hues in this shot. A serene seascape. I think the horizon is well placed and the balance between sky and sea/rocks good.


    I hope all is well with you

    Hello Bev - A charming Cornish scene and a village I remember well from childhood visits. I love the way you have captured the locational details here. The tree studded slope falling down to the water's edge is lovely. The little harbour looks well populated by an assortment of boats. Good weather too and the light has given your shot some good contrast and colour.

    Warm regards

    Hello Jean Jacques - I have just returned to Namibia from the UK and I noted that the trees are beginning to turn and display their autumn tints. This is a reminder of what I shall miss seeing in Namibia where autumn doesn't really feature very much. I love trees and to see these golden beauties reflected in the water is a delight.

    Lovely rich colours.

    Hello Nicou - Your choice of DOF has softened the backcloth of buildings so well that the flag and attractive sign are not lost in a mass of irrelevant detail. A well considered and presented shot. I love the subject and the colours.

    Hello dear Carlo - I haven't really had time to have a proper look through your recent posts since I got back from the UK. This one stands out in the thumb nails and I like the subject very much. The pastel coloured glass is beautiful and I like the organic look it has.

    Hello Jason - An excellent observation, I really like the fact that I can only understand the word 'tandem' on the poster. Had I been able to translate the Russian, I think the words may have distracted me and the connection may not have been so apparent. The detail surrounding the scene is colourful and interesting but in no way detracts from the main event.

    I have been enjoying the pics on FB... looks as if you had a great trip with Malgo and Serghei.

    Hello Ian - You have posted so many interesting shots from you recent travels; this one stands out in the gallery thanks to its graphic simplicity. The stark light has provided strong shadows which work well here. My preference would have been to have the figure either facing the other direction or placed under the right hand window .... walking into the shot rather than out of it.

    Well observed.

    Hello Erhan - Fatigue radiates from this woman as she seems to haul herself up the steps. A very good street shot taken with an inventive twist. I like the way she is brightly lit and contrasts against the darkness behind.

    What a fine idea Gert. A soft seat after hours of pavement pounding and this young woman looks set for a long rest. A well observed street shot with lots to attract the eye. I especially like the way the colours work together - both those within and those without the shop.

    I like this scene very much Brian. The four identical buildings make me think of the prows of ships pushing forward towards the viewer. Pretty light and reflections add to the charm of this shot.

    Hello Brian - Your processing gives this shot the look of a finely tinted pencil drawing, the sails are beautifully detailed. As I may have mentioned before I am not really a fan of HDR work but here I like what I see possibly because of the lovely warm light.

    Hope all is well

    Hello Claude - I like the crop on this as I think it accentuates the bold punchy elements. Love the sheen on the woman's skin.

    I note your remark to Ann about the boys face, I agree with you; the subject would be completely different.

    What a super shot György. The fabulous overhead view explores the scene in an original and fascinating way. The circle of people draw the eye to the performer illuminated by the street lamp. You've cpatured the mood convincingly. Nicely done.
