    Hello Kasia,

    I thoroughly enjoyed your notes which, with the photograph, completed the whole picture.
    This photograph is subliminally beautiful.
    The boats appear to be guiding, like pointing fingers, to the star of the scene, the lady in red, gracefully paddling shorewards.
    I loved the bus! It was like a mini art gallery and even surpassed the colourful buses that I experienced in Pakistan!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Ha! Ha! Paul,

    I really enjoyed your notes!
    I could imagine beads of sweat, sizzling as the they hit the hot floor, like butter in a hot pan!
    Yes, I think you might have been right about posting your second w/s pic, though they are very similar.
    My immediate thought was 'what a contrast to your last shot'! There the streets were crammed with people partying! Here, it is hard to see anyone beyond the moto chiva.

    I am interested in the displays of flags. Are they a remnant of a previous festival or do the people just enjoy showing off their national flags?

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Takero,
    I remain amazed at the strange monsters you found in the snow. They could be scary when it was getting dark. The light and colours are also very attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    This one does well as the main photo, but perhaps you could also have chosen the WS #2, just as you suggest. But it doesn't make much difference. Both photos are very interesting to watch for the fine colours and the quiet life in the streets of this small town. I recognize your description of the climate. In a city on the south coast of Yemen I was overwhelmed by the heat and humidity, and ever since I have been convinced that the temperature was at least 40°, and probably more. Just recently I checked up the weather statistics for that place and found that it rarely gets hotter than maybe 35°, and at that time of the year usually not more than 30. I was very surprised and almost felt I had been cheated.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Good Morning Takero,

    A scene full of atmosphere, where the trees stand frozen, wrapped in blankets of snow and trying to hide in the hollow created by the snow drift.
    A lovely composition with just the right amount of sharpness.

    I cannot imagine how you felt, trying to take this shot.

    My warm regards,

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    La mia prima impressione è quella di una fotografia molto ben composto, gli F / G caratteristiche che servono uno scopo preciso e utile. La torre fa certamente una presenza imponente e crea un forte senso di profondità agli edifici interessanti e albero coperto piste del b / g.

    Sono incuriosito dagli stemmi in quello che appare come nicchie delle finestre.

    Buona giornata,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour, chère Nicole,
    Je remarque la rampe de mise à l'eau, j'ai eu l'occasion de m'en servir avec une peur à chaque fois de faire une erreur!
    Les ports de plaisance prennent de plus en plus de places, il faut dire que le rapport est plutôt satisfaisant (pour ma part, j'ai tout revendu, les enfants ont grandi, et le coût était devenu prohibitif).
    Très bonne prise de vue.
    Amitiés.

    Thank you Murat,

    I have never seen, nor heard of, this avenue of flags before so this has been a good learning experience as well as a pleasing viewing experience.
    I would imagine that, on such a beautiful day, it would have been impossible to photograph this seen without having tourists crossing your line of vision.

    You have achieved an excellent linear perspective, sharply detailed and with a joyous atmosphere because of all the flags and the vibrant colours.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Piotr,
    The global heating is very worrying, and even worse is that there are leading politicians in important countries that deny what is obviously happening. Without knowing anything about the receding glaciers this would be a stunning photo in any case. The scenery is spectacular, but strangely what I notice most of all is the person in the green jacket and the black sign with red letters. Two small dots of bright colours in the mainly very grey landscape.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    This is a very beautiful and extremely artistic photograph of winter's effect on vegetation.
    The hoar frost, coating the stems with silver, creates a filigree pattern like lace.
    A beautiful composition with well rendered textures.

    Hello Angel,
    The weather doesn't look like what I expect in July, but in spite of the thick clouds and rather dull light the multicoloured façades shine intensely and brighten the view remarkably. They make the composition very attractive.

    Hello Danos,

    I thought this was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty and your extensive notes have confirmed that. It really is a fairytale castle and you have presented it with excellent visual details.
    We can clearly see how it is lifted on extremely tall, strong foundations, so that it is prominent above the tree canopy.
    You have achieved an excellent sense of depth to the b/g lake; a very beautiful scene, expertly captured.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Good Morning Malgo,

    Jaw-dropping is a very good, modern day description of this foyer!
    It is certainly the most sumptuous that I have ever seen!
    The Baroque decorations are so wonderfully elaborate.
    You could imagine ladies in long dresses and elegantly coiffured wigs being escorted along here!
    Thank you for this fine reveal of the long foyer with exquisite details.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Merhaba Mesut,

    I have been seated on the river bank many times, trying to capture a photograph of this illusive bird, the kingfisher. I have only ever seen it whizz past as a green/blue flash so I am extremely envious but very appreciative of this fine photograph!

    Not only have you achieved a fine close-up of the bird, showing its iridescent plumage to perfection, but you have caught it feeding on a fish!
    It's a remarkable shot!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
