    Bonjour Serge,

    This is an excellent indoor shot and shows good compositional skills.
    Although the photograph is recording the people and the entries at the exposition, the most striking aspect, for me, is the flooring with those wonderful shapes and hues caused by the contrasts of lights and shadows.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Noel,

    Oh, I'm so glad I didn't miss this!
    What a fantastic photograph of this b&w butterfly. You have got the focus perfectly right on the butterfly so that the b/g makes an interesting but unobtrusive bokeh.

    We have seen a few more butterflies this year, than last, but nowhere near so many as there used to be. Some farmers are leaving borders of wild flowers around the edges of their fields to help the plight of butterflies and the RHS has been promoting wild flower areas as a means of creating greater biodiversity. I suppose there needs to be a greater awareness of the problems caused when habits are destroyed.

    Thanks for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Luis,

    What an eye-catching shot!
    The archway makes a perfect, natural frame adding interest and a sense of curiosity to explore beyond. No-one could be disappointed with what lies beyond the arch! It is a delightful scene of artistic tiles and pristine houses, climbing like steps up the hillside. The light and the colours are equally splendid!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Kari,

    Yes, today is the first day of autumn but we have had some of our best weather in September so let's hope it continues.
    This is, as you say, autumn at its best. The trees are beginning to show their warm colours, the sun is low and there is peace in the air. You have added to the beauty with your fine composition, the land encircling the lake, the change from shadows into sunlight, the red feature strongly placed and the line of boats guiding into the b/g.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Robert,

    A photograph that has everything we would expect from a picturesque, seaside shot: the rowing boat, the pool explorers, the rocks, the sea, the lighthouse and the sunbathers.
    This is such a well composed shot, with good balance and a fine sense of depth.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    This seems a long way away from the first day of autumn!
    I really love how the light is shimmering and reflecting on the water, streaming backwards and guiding us towards the deeper azure colours.
    I could almost dip my toes in here!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Daniel,

    What a great pov you have chosen!
    The tram and the wall have a terrific impact from their position, their co-ordinating colours, their excellent textural details and the way they are splashed by the sun's rays.
    You have controlled the exceptionally well!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Satya,

    What informative, daily life shots you show us! These fishermen lead dangerous lives but, from this evidence, very fruitful ones! Is this a normal catch or a very lucky one?
    Fine f/g sharpness and a great sense of perspective as we move towards the crowds in the b/g.

    Have a great day,

    Hello Ryszard,

    What stunning colours in this sunset, made even more spectacular by their deeper reflections in the water! Besides the colours, the shot has great composition, the silhouetted feature, strongly positioned for maximum impact.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)
