    Hello Gyorgy,

    I have to agree with you, the photograph is far stronger, with a greater sense of 'mood' without the lady in shot. You did an exceptionally good job of removing her whilst keeping the integrity of the rest of the photograph.
    The suitcase next to the man brings up a great sense of a story. There are numerous scenarios, from the mysterious to the romantic! It would make an intriguing front cover for a book!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,

    Lighthouses always make strong, imposing focal points and this one is no exception; in fact, its warm colouration and sea reflection add to its overall impact.
    You have used the causeway to very good effect, completing an excellent composition.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    Your slow shutter speed has captured every bit of artificial light and illuminated the scene in such a way that it is like molten lava! It is incredibly beautiful!.
    There is enough light to show the bridge, which guides irresistibly between the amber trees and into the heart of the illuminated village.
    The deep blue sky reveals the mountain and adds atmosphere to the scene.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi John
    how did I miss this one?
    Looking at this scene, it reminds me once again that perhaps I should expand my photographic horizons and looks for similar scenes.

    the final result is awesome. The star of the show has to be the man on the far right, his expression is priceless.

    and i like that the man on the bottom left is looking directly at him as well. Real men in a Real situation.
    I'm sure Gert loves it! haha
    cheers

    Hello Ali,

    Thank you for the instruction, I'm sure many will be attempting this type of shot with such clear guidance!

    It is a shot that is wonderfully clear and reveals what we imagine we see with a naked eye, though it cannot be anything like as good as this!
    I like how the reactionary, small droplets are exploding from the large droplet crater. It's a great shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    There have been numerous posts of 'eyes' but this is a little different from most that we have seen; in your case, you have focused on just three pods. By doing this, you have chosen the best number for composition and placed them in such a way that they suggest a diagonal (though curved!).
    I like the inclusion of the framework, with its overlapping lines, creating a network of straight-sided shapes, so different from the open space in the opposing corner.

    London can be such a tease, weatherwise!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Olivier
    haha...this is the type of scene that is very true to my heart. I love taking photos of buildings looking up on steep angles, just like the one you have here.

    your shot is Dramatic, has fine angles, has excellent colour contrast, and that sky is the perfect backdrop, Wouldn't change anything about it
    cheers

    Hi Denis
    another wonderful classic looking shot.
    its cool that the orange moss is the same in the lower corner and on the rooftop of the church.

    and that small red door makes a strong impact too, even though its such a small part of the overall scene.
    excellent shot
    cheers

    Hello Cristina,

    Though I have visited Ireland on several occasions, I have yet to set foot in Dublin!
    However, you have captured a stunning building for me to enjoy! I think you have chosen the perfect angle to show off its ornate roof finials, its beautiful windows and associated round tower, whilst also, creating an excellent sense of perspective.
    The f/g flower pots give a good sense of depth and add extra colour.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mariusz,

    This is quite a minimalistic shot with just the statue and the sea, well connected; but that doesn't lessen its impact for it is a very strong composition. The singularly strong figure, elevated on high, gazing proudly out to sea, is a force to be reckoned with!
    For those unfamiliar with the exploits and achievements of this celebrated man, your notes are more than adequate.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
