    Hello Ghislaine - The colours here evoke the brilliance of the Impressionist painters' palette and suit the sun-baked scenery very well. So French with the stony dry earth and yellow sunflowers contrasting with the vivid blues and purples. I love your low view point with such fine FG detail and the lines of perspective which travel into the distance.

    Warm regards

    Hello Malgo - How romantic, a trip down memory lane and a time to relax with your hubby! This shot is wonderfully tranquil and I can imagine the two of you sitting on the shores of the lake thinking of times past. Beautiful image with excellent light, colours and composition. Have a fabulous trip.

    Warm regards

    Hello Eleu

    With architecture this flamboyant, it would be hard to take a duff photograph. But yours is not just a straight mug-shot. Your choice of time of day (the so-called "blue hour") has added colour and light drama to the image. The artificial lights fighting with the blue "remains of the day" give us that classic colour-wheel blue/orange contrast. Very well managed.

    Hello John

    Well, as a "pescetarian" I must comment on this photograph. Your friend the fishmonger is placed very well in the frame, and appears to be several feet from the nearest knife! The seafood itself I must say looks delicious. Your f/10 aperture has allowed for very adequate front-to-back sharpness. A good environmental portrait.

    Hello Dorian

    When I saw the thumbnail, I thought you were playing with a super-wide-angle. On opening the image I was pleasantly surprised. The radical shape is architectural and not lens distortion! The monochrome treatment emphasizes the graphic shapes, echoed by the perspective lines of the wall and receding highway. And the time of day was well chosen too: still some definition in the sky, but lights in the building and car light-trails to add contrast and drama. Good work.

    Regards

    A wonderfully graphic semi-abstract. I like the peek-a-boo quirky humour too. We certainly don't need or want to see more of the owner of the legs! Bet she's not the owner of the eye.

    Hello Aleksandar

    You spotted well the potential of this location to create a clever, and possibly symbolic image. I might have tried to omit more of the road on the left by maybe getting in tighter to the rails, but this remains a graphic and thought-provoking photograph: off the rails at the end of the line...

    Hi again Trevor

    This one has more of the classic look of an old film photograph, rather than the more "modern" digital extravagances! And it suits the subject matter perfectly. A timeless vision. BTW, I often add/subtract picture elements in my photographs, but I tend not to admit it, as it could be construed as breaking the ToS! I should keep mum if I were you!

    Regards

    Will

    P.S. I always try to retain the whole frame rather than crop my images. And I never add frames. We'll get on like a house on fire if we ever meet up!

    Pretty fair old reflection thing you've got going there. I like the sunlit mountains counterbalancing the dark tones of the foreground. 6am? Back in the sleeping bag!

    Hello Kasia

    Despite your claim that you got up late, I know you are a morning person - I remember your photographs from Bushey and Richmond Parks. So this really comes as no surprise. But it was certainly worth it: the sunrise and mist create magical photographic conditions. The iconic (or stock) Dutch landmark is of course placed with masterly precision in the frame to counterbalance the old currant bun. Lovely work.

    Kind regards

    Hello Gildas

    I couldn't make out what the hell this was from the thumbnail, which is why I opened it. And I'm glad I did, as I'm greeted by a very clever and near-abstract close-up. Beautiful light, beautiful colours, beautiful composition. It makes me hungry, despite the barbarity!

    Hello Gerrit

    Popular it may be, but you've managed to exclude most of them! The presence of a couple of boats (presumably containing tourists) is fine by me, and in fact serve very satisfactorily to fill the left-hand space. A nicely composed photograph.

    Hello Denis

    A lovely little frame through which we see boats in the Golfe. And not so little, either: indeed the frame may even be more important than the scene, as you've given it a large percentage of the image area, and by including the yucca, are insisting on our eyes dwelling on the foreground. A clever and engaging photograph.

    What fantastic light: I guess it's a mix of daylight and sodium? Your "antediluvian" image works brilliantly: so moody and malevolent. It looks like a shiny, scaly sea creature.

    Hello Eleu - I don't think I have ever see a full, free-standing view of and of Frank Gehry's architecture. This wonderful shot really shows off the curious, fluid movement he seems to excel at in his designs.

    An excellent and intriguing shot where the artificial light shining from the interior works well as it contrasts against the sky.

    Your note belies the serene moment you present in the gorgeous shot Kasia! The atmosphere of the misty sunrise is tangible .... I have to shade my eyes against the bright ball of the sun; brilliant! Did you use the longest end of your 300mm?

    Well worth raising the ire of the taxi driver!

    Hello Ihsan

    I've seen your Antelope Canyon shots, but it's this one that attracted my attention. I love the compressed perspective you've achieved with your long lens. And the other added bonus is the frame-filling geometries of these old wooden buildings. The sky looks curiously noisy, however.
