    Ciao Luciano,
    l' hdr ha illumianto tutta la scena molto effettivamente, ogni angolo ed ogni dettaglio hanno un carattere ed un impatto particolare, tutti elementi significativi di una scena molto ricca. Il giocco di luce ed ombra copre la scena intera, colori caldi e freddi sono attraenti e piacevoli tra i grigi dell' ombra. L' immagine sembra un dipinto con dettagli finissimi, hai trovato una prospettiva stupenda che ci porta allo sfondo e mette tutto in ordine. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,
    Ourania

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    a great title for a photo full of mesmerizing details which spread all over the frame in a beautiful way. The lady adds a mysterious touch of daily life as well as dynamism that balances the perspectives produced by your hip shot. There's fine harmony in the colours and the door in the shade makes me extremely curious regarding the interior. The workshop pictures are excellent complements. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Carlo,
    trovo l' apicoltura interessantissima e vorrei tanto aver l' occasione di fare foto come questa o anche avvicinarmi alle arnie ed alla processione anche di piu'. Mi piace la semplicita' e la profondita' di questa scena, il contrasto tra il verde splendidamente illuminato ed il verde scuro all sfondo. Le arnie e l' apicoltore fanno un effetto grafico, i colori sono naturali e meravigliosi. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello Jean,
    I like the graphic effect and the depth created by the shadows in the foreground, the way foliage and shadows frame the delightful view of the garden. You have chosen an effective vantage point for a complete and inviting composition in which the paths play a significant role. I like the discreet human presence and the atmosphere created by the strong light and contrast. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Roland,
    you framed this scene very effectively, setting off its interesting elements and giving us a glimpse of daily life with significant touches of local colour. The vespa is attractive and there's good connection between it, the lady and the shop. The scene is busy but you made it look so neat. The clarity, the colours and the golden light are great. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Robert,
    the chateau is really magnificent, a unique, huge and solid building, full of windows and towers. You are offering us a superbly defined view of it but also specify its imposing role in the town scenery. I like the well balanced composition with an also interesting cityscape and street scene in the lower part and the chateau standing out against the smooth blue sky. The couple in the foreground adds depth, reference and scale. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Bulent,
    this could be an ordinary street scene but the Amish people walking between the lines of parked cars and the tint given by your creative and effective monochrome treatment have produced a special effect. I like very much the mild dynamism spread all over your composition, the poles and trees defining a solid background and, of course, the spontaneous way the boy is looking back while walking. His placement in the scene is superb and makes our contact with him very strong. Congratulations and thank you! I love Witness and have seen it many times.
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Paul,
    both your picture and your note are very intriguing, we realyy learn a lot about the austere elegance of a Japanese interior and are able to appreciate a lot of its main features. I like the way you've organized your composition with good perspective and a delightful arrangement of lines. I like the calm atmosphere and the natural colours, the deep and clear background and the harmonious combination of natural and artificial light. The workshop pictures are lovely, their atmosphere even more tranquil. Congratulations and thank you!
    Thank you for your kind wishes too.
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello dear Mesut,
    I'm very glad you enjoyed the company of a dolphin in this year's blue voyage too! This is a wonderful scene, full of dynamism and energy, grace and fun. I like the way you captured the effect of the dolphin's movement in the sea, leaving space behind and ahead of it. A remarkably sharp image with superb textures and colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    it's great to join you again on TE, thank you for your kind welcome! I think that the people have affected your points of view on this superb square, people and acenery add meaning and reference to each other in all three photos, I like them all very much. The sunshine has enhanced the graphic power of the colours and the geometrical shapes of the architecture create delightful patterns around the people. The architecture is very fine and offers a lot of opportunities for creative compositions. Your main post is wonderful, I like this colourful little crowd following the teacher whithout even looking ahead:) A wonderful diagonal in a strong and interesting context. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like the spontaneous and haphazard effect of your hip shots, although I wonder if it was psychologically necessary in this place. I think I see the same girl in one of the workshops, seemingly taken in a regular way. Never mind, it's an interesting photo in a refreshingly "non-postcardish" style.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Mariusz,
    This could easily have been taken for penguins from the Antarctic unless you had told us the truth. Personally I don't care much. This view is just as exciting and overwhelming, although it was taken from some distance. I love the blue sky telling us this is actually a colour photo (I don't believe you have made a partial desaturation). It's a simple but very attractive composition.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Paul,
    Certainly "daily life" is appropriate here. We can feel the presence of the family living here, as if they just left the room. Although different from a plate of sushi or sashimi the room is almost as neatly arranged. I love the clean lines, that airy atmosphere and the total absence of useless things that are supposed to make the house look nice and cosy. This is of course a very special house, not representative of how ordinary Japanese live today, but I have long wondered if this style of housing is still favored today, even though on a more modest scale, or if Japanese homes have mainly "gone Western".
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Welcome back Ourania,
    I will keep my fingers crossed for your father's recovery. You were a bit lucky, under difficult circumstances, to have this balcony. Views like this can create amazing effects. This is an amusing and very attractive photo of a kind that I also more and more enjoy to take. Some photographers advice us to "look up", but I would also say "look down" (and "look back" when you are walking down a street). Fantastic compositions like this are waiting for us if we look carefully for them.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Costantino,
    The Italian note, the B&W photo and the somewhat moody atmosphere makes me think of a neorealistic movie from the 1940's or -50-s. I think there were such movies made in Greece too in those days. I really like the distant view of the two boys trying to catch a fish, or whatever, so eager that one of them just left his bike lying on the ground. One boy's head just hits the horizon, like he is balancing the sky on his head.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Ryszard
    An excellent take so full of detail, liveliness plus the architectural beauty as strong bg interest - thus it's obvious to see why you'd want to capture this scene; full of charm of a pleasant town, bright deep warm yellow, red and blue sky for contrast. Lovely shot on a bright sunny day, Well done. Congrats
