    Howdy Juliette,

    Fine wintery scene, sun rays piercing through the fog, highlighting the leafless shrubs and dominate tree; a mixture of greys and light blues.

    Well done,

    Hi Danos
    Excellent capture with history lesson! showing the adverse contrast from two diff world sitting side by side. A striking image with powerful colours and the immaculate detail taken on a brill light and it's a great idea to colour pop this shot. It's clever bit of observation and flawlessly taken of a really intriguing historical sight, Congrats.

    Howdy Bev,
    Fine wintery scene with the snow dusting the river's bank and the irregular rock arch bridge, with rock architecture background. The car looks out of place, and a horse would be more aesthetic.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Clever view of Venice's silhouetted architecture through the sun lit lamps. We have been increasingly using solar powered outdoor lamps. With improving battery technology, solar energy continues to become viable over coal and oil.

    The winter snow dusting creates the 'feel' of the ancient rock walls in ruins, and the impressive gothic architecture of the Ravanica Monastery behind.

    Well done,

    Howdy Ed,

    Frankly I am not a squirrel fan, they would be better named as 'tree rats'. They eat all of my fruit before it ripens, so I never get any - cherries, apricots, plums, pomegranates, etc...
    Your urban squirrel image does give me a chuckle, with the long lineup of sparrows watching behind on the wall.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Hi Aleks
    Love the perspective and depth with its minimal colour. It's the tarmac that leads my eye into this picture comfortably shaded by those towering trees converging almost meet at a point. There's a nice touch of warm light & shadows while the boring sky is livened by the graduated filter. Well done shot, Congrats.

    Hi Costantino
    Excellent observational street photography and there's something which we really can't resist; it's the stinging blinding red colour is obviously a big hit in the setting that draws the eye almost instantly. Plenty to show us from this superb layout and there's lot of charm full of character with the man make it work. What a great colour contrast of a shot beyond reproach! TFS

    Hi Noel
    A peaceful town with this wonderful row of charming cottages, what a cheery sight with all those appealing colourful facades so neatly and uniquely arranged that way! Captured this lovely spot on a gorgeous day with good pov and the fg works well. I think the dispersed fresh green tones plus the splash of vivid red are strong enough to bring this to an already very rich feast for the eyes. Remarkable shot, Congrats
    Interesting notes too.

    Hi Piotr
    It's extremely cold, but a glorious tranquil winter scene in beautiful low warm morning light which really picks out the detail of the snowy landscape. Great composition and exposed perfectly with some nice dark brown tones of the trees & chalet to break up the dominant white. But what a lovely contrast of warmth and cold conditions with lovely touch of long shadow. A fine shot fitting the festive season, executed seamlessly, Congrats.

    Hi Harriet
    Grey gentle winter day it certainly is! Almost a mono image, I think you have captured the essence well of what you wanted to convey with great judgement of exposure and contrast to retain detail in the shadow areas. Such a stillness hazy day but the atmosphere is reinforced by the convergence diagonal poles with the reflections on view. It's an appropriate shot befitting the environment really well....
    Great work, Congrats

    Hi Daniel
    This beautiful peaceful scene looks like just the kind of place to hang out right now that makes you want to sail off across the water! The composition is lovely and the exposure is so good too. The colours of the blue water and the clouds are incredible especially when viewed large it draws you into another world and a great image to view on a gorgeous summer morning.
    Excellent piece of work, it really looks heavenly. Congrats :)

    Excellent narratives accompanying this shot, wonderful image so full of detail capturing the feeling of one of the busiest streets so well. It is full of life and swarming with humanity, I think this can be a shock to a first time visitor. It's well cropped - helps the viewer to focus attention on the subject. Great in colour and clarity, spot on street photography. Excellent snap. Congrats, tfs

    This is rather sad derelict building probably lack of maintenance but the spirit of the season is still alive here - with the sparkling star! That's the every scene - the reality you have seen and recorded with nice effect - it stands out on a bright warm day. Fine shot, Congrats
