    Hello Ourania,

    We get a 50/50 picture with a very soft subject.
    Sea and boats are in Greece a lot present you can make different picture on different places.
    Clarity and sharpness make these picture very interesting.
    Nice composition, lovely presentation.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Have a nice weekend,
    John.

    Bonjour Nicou,
    a wonderful composition that has great graphical impact and goes beyond a mere description of the unfortunate tree after the strike of the lightening. The layout of the remains and the textures are superb, I also love the colours. The shapes that have emerged from the burnt trunk have been exalted by your composition, they look quite dramatic. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,
    Ourania

    Hello Craig
    I think this composition works quite well, it is a dynamic POV with the upwards view here and black and white is the obvious choice here, it makes it more dramatic and takes out some of the ugly and dirty colors of the place.
    Concerning the HDR, you know you are my guru on this. As usually the effect is not to strongly visible here. Used in the right way it can have some amazing results, used in the wrong way it can be quite horrendous.
    have a great weekend

    Hello Gert,

    A very romantic picture, red roses are my favorite colour.
    Who gives what at whom, or maybe a surprise between this couple.
    Clarity and sharpness make these picture very interesting.
    Nice composition, lovely presentation.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello John
    Well, there couldn't be more contrast between the crazy fish monger in Malgo's picture (even though she only had a laugh at us) and this relaxed seller who seems to be proud of his produce.
    Concerning the issue of photographing markets and market stalls, I am often surprised at how agressive some stall holders react to photography. As several comments in Malgo's thread noted correctly, markets are public spaces and it is not that we are stealing something of them or even doing some industry espionage.
    Only recently, while spending a weekend in Burgundy, a women reacted really nasty to my wife, taking a photo of her beautiful display of artichokes and other mediterranian veggies. Rather than being proud that someone deemed her display worth a photo and seing it as an advertisement of her produce, she shouted at my wife about it in the highest pitches. Its artichokes for gods sake, not some priceless piece of art or a painting, where I could understand such a reaction. And she wasn't even in the picture, actually no humans at all where there to be seen.
    have a great weekend
    Daniel
    PS: The fish in your workshop is indeed a monk fish. Pretty ugly but truly delicious to eat.

    Hello Bev,
    I don't really share some other members' enthusiasm of old cars, but this photo is different, and quite amusing. We get an interesting and rare look inside one of these old cars and a good glimpse of the show at the same time. There are always new angles to be found at any event.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paja,
    one of my very favourite fruits, your picture with the loaded peach tree is a delightful sight. All the peaches look lovely and healthy, the excellent clarity of your photo allows us to distinguish the textures and the fine colour variations that also say how ripe these peaches are. An image that's vivid and vibrant, the play of light in the foliage is very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Hello Ali,
    A fine and exciting photo from the bazaar of Esfahan. There are innumerable things to watch among the people who visit the bazaar. I do not recognize this place but I have fond memories of my visit to Esfahan 44 years ago.

    A very nice shot in a crowd. The woman has a very attractive face and she clearly has no idea you were taking a photo of her. I like the spontaneity and the total naturalness of this photo, still with a perfect light and sharpness.

    Hello Gert,
    like in many of your spontaneous and quick captures through the cities you visit, this looks so thorough and consistent. At the same time, the information you have about this fleeting scene is little and we have to collect all the details we can find in the frame to recreate the story -and most often each of us creates a different one:) For this fine picture I rely on the body language and the expressions, it's sweet and amusing that, even though they haven't eye contact, they focus on the same thing and are so aware of each other. It's a very lovely, vivid scene. The big orange words have only graphical impact for me, I like the delightfully awkward way in which they fill the space between the two heroes. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,
    Ourania
