    Hello John

    Well... this "news" about the weather back home has only served to make me more smug as I plan my timetable for my upcoming road trip in a motorhome up the coast, north of Sydney...

    Sitting here in my shorts, the coldest thing I have handled today is the steak I took out of the freezer in preparation for a barbecue later on...

    Life's a beach sometimes... off to give my throat a workout with a bottle of the local brew... chilled of course!

    Take care...

    Hello Gert,
    it's very interesting to look at this simple and quiet scene and realize how it actually features a decisive and unrepeatable moment, as the random pattern of the mosaic of mirrors could never be arranged in the same way. There's great interaction between the lady, her reflection and the deep, mysterious ambiance in the wall of mirrors. An effective presentation of an original, playful and fascinating artwork. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Bonjour Nicou,
    I like very much the way the machine and its lights stand out in the moody and dark wintry scenery, this daily life image has playful and poetic features and looks delightfully reassuring, not only because the snowy streets are taken care of but also because it proves that beauty and interesting photos can be found everywhere. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Serge,
    this is a classic, always attractive view and you rendered it particularly fascinating by filling the whole frame with interest and colours and making the light and the contrasts look suggestively dramatic. I like very much both the detailed architecture and the natural elements that have an interesting character too. The shady arches are great, there's not only graphism but also space and mystery in them. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Hello Stephen,
    the post office with its tower must be one of the city's jewels, your picture gives us a very effective description of the particular architecture and pleases also with its vivid colours and lovely light. You emphasized the contrasts effectively and the shadows on the building enhance the impact of the details and the description. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Miro,
    picture and note are fascinating, there's a lot to learn and discover in both and they complement each other superbly. I had no idea that Catmandu was so large and dense, a sea of concrete. I had much narrower and more intimate and exotic images in my mind. Your picture has amazing depth and great definition. I like very much the light and the long shadows in the foreground. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Stephane,
    a very fine scene, suggestive and captivating. At this hour the light changes quickly and this photo features a beautiful moment, the intensity of the brightest spot is superb and there's a wonderful graduation of light, colours and shadows all over. The depth, the textures and the complementing patterns of the natural elements have produced a marvellous, timeless result. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Brian,
    this view is wonderful, it attracts the viewer at first sight but its allure and interest increase as we are watching the dramatic scene and add mental images of our own like in romantic paintings and poems. The textures are fantastic, they have substance and intensity, the agitation is captivating. You captured a rare palette and most effective shadows. The technical challenge and realization must have been equally fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Gosia,
    this image is rare, artistic and very lovely. I like very much the graphism of the silhouettes, the textures and the colours, there's a suggestive play of light and shadow that makes the setting and its atmosphere special and enchanting. There's a sense of mystery regarding the silhouetted boats and structures, the sense of space is most effective and it seems that, if you fix your glance on the view for a while, you'll see the light shift. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a lovely mediterranean coast with interesting variations that make our exploration of the scenery pleasant and interesting. I like very much the way you managed the midday light, achieving great clarity and fine textural details and colours. The boats stand out against the natural tones of the environment, the reflection of the sky is superb and your balanced composition enhances its impact. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    this early morning scene in a street that's gradually getting busy looks surprisingly intimate, the light and the shadows make the atmosphere alluring and we are watching a decisive moment when different lives, thoughts and intentions intersect briefly and unconsciously. I like very much the different directions and perspectives, how you created an intriguing composition out of this random scene and how you managed the light to make it look special. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Rosemary

    I like the fact that in a beautiful city like York (Minsters, Shambles and so on), you've found and chosen to present a gritty, "ugly" scene. But of course it's not ugly as a result of the transformational power of the photographic eye...

    Hello Gyorgy

    A departure from your usual subject matter, but none the worse for that. The shot is surprisingly noisy in the middle distance, and I'm left wondering if you have selected the background, and all the lake, and blurred/defocussed it in Photoshop. It has a "processed" look to it, but I like it nonetheless.

    Regards

    Hello Piotr

    Dramatic, graphic geometries, optimised by your use of the wide-angle (though you don't tell us what!) Almost monochromatic: I might have been tempted to knock all the colour right out and go b/w. Where are the people?? Very good work.

    Hello Serge

    Most unusual shot of a very unusual set of sculptures. Or at least it would be unusual if I hadn't seen this before taken by Diane Vaillancourt. I wonder if you know her on TE and/or have seen this from her before. They're both great shots by the way!

    Hi Kasia

    The emotions you ascribe to your sitters are very accurately reflected in their faces. The two kids are lovely - and clearly happy; Mustafa's showing off a bit for the camera; Dad's proud and fine; Mum's a little on edge. On the surface this could almost be a group selfie - happy family on a day out. The back-story you tell puts a potentially very different spin on things.

    Good reportage work again.

    Kind regards

    Will

    Hello Ourania,
    A painter specialising in clouds (I think there are those) would have absolutely loved this view and opportunity. They are magnificently shaped, but most of all the light is stunning. I have seen that building many times before, but in this light it looks brand new. It would have been against your very nature not to stop for a photo at this place and moment,
    Kind regards,
    Gert
