    Ciao dear Noel

    Ahh it's wonderful to see the sun shining and people out and about enjoying nature. These flowers are wonderful, their beauty surpassed only by your lovely young subject. It is beautiful to see a young woman in a hijab, enjoying life in Ireland. Excellent choice of the vertical frame, impressive sharpness and light management. I hope you enjoyed the day as much as this young lady looks like she did.

    Warmest wishes

    Dear Mariusz

    This is a really beautiful photo, it seems as though you're using the same tripod I use in these situations: balancing the camera on your forehead and taking the shot :) The wide angle lens has worked its magic and you have beautifully displayed the details of the artwork.

    I think I might fall into that group of "liberals" you refer to in your note :) I have difficulty supporting the Catholic Church in light of three things. Firstly, the findings of systemic paedophilia against it in various courts and tribunals around the world. In my country, the figure is 1 in 6 children who attended Catholics schools were sexually assaulted by members of the Church. But the world looks away. Secondly, I cannot condone the amount of wealth the Church has amassed, yet it looks away while its people live in abject poverty. Thirdly, the Church in Australia's position on refugees. It seems that so-called Christians here and overseas only care about people if they're not brown or Muslim. My belief in God is not shaken, but my faith in Catholicism is gone.

    I hope you had a happy Easter and thank you for sharing

    Dear Danos

    It is a pity that we need fire fighting planes. I know your country, like mine, experience terrible fires and so they have been a part of life. Here in Australia, we use large helicopters to dump massive amounts of water on the burning forests. But Mother Nature can never be beaten. This is an excellent photo and a rare opportunity to see these machines on land, rather than in the sky. Superb colours, light and composition.

    This is a magnificent photo. The perspective, wide angle, colours and light are all flawless. On top of that, your subject is fascinating and so very beautiful. I love the tight framing and the pin-sharpness. An impressive photo in every respect, congratulations.

    These words are very true, especially in these crazy times which we live in. I love the graphism and the play of light and shade. The geometries are very attractive and the effect of the wide angle lens is very dramatic. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

    A mysterious composition that make me want to see what is behind the next bend in the road. Perhaps symbolic of life itself, when I think about it. I love the simplicity and symbolism here. Excellent work.

    This reminds me of the photos of Silvio and his beloved Castelluccio. The poppies and the green grass contrast so beautifully. The vertical frame works well, adding depth and the light is wonderful. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

    Hi dear Angel

    A lovely soft light and colours emphasise the tranquillity and romance of the scene. The minimalism is what immediately draws the eye and I can see why you have made it your title. I like the lone man on the beach. It is a photo that is emphasises someone being alone in their thoughts.

    Warmest wishes, un abrazo

    Not long til you leave for Portugal, you lucky fella.

    This is a cracking photo. The light is superb and you've got the best of the colours and textures of the fort. The title of the photo is interesting too. It reminds me of an episode of Big Bang Theory, "Fun With Flags". Excellent sharpness and of course a fantastic drone POV.

    Have a very happy Easter, I hope the Easter Bunny is good to you

    This is a top quality photo. The duotones are superb and I just love the effect of the mist on the scene. It looks like the beginning of a horror movie. I'm just waiting for a monster to reveal itself from those murky depths. Stunning photography, as usual.

    What an original and very beautiful composition. I love the light, it's incandescent. The diagonal lines and textures of the wooden boat are delightful. Excellent play with the depth of field too, setting the scene beautifully.

    heheheh what an original and compelling series of photos. Small talk is going on everywhere, all day every day. It's amazing how we don't pay attention to it, it's like background noise. And this lady in a traditional, timeless costume looks so incongruous with the modern mobile telephone.
