    Bonjour, cher Silvio,

    La grande place est envahie par des photographes qui souhaitent immortaliser ce moment de pur bonheur sur le film ou la carte SD !
    Très bonne prise de vue.
    Amitiés.

    Il aura suffit d'une flaque pour donner à cette composition un effet très agréable à contempler.

    Hello Will,

    How beautifully you've framed the scene — the microscopic island connected to the mainland by the little land bridge. The lighting is so much better than when I saw it two years ago in September 2012. I am grateful for the note, precisely because our guide had little to say about the celebrities who gallivanted there, nor its connection to its dalliance (or lack of) in Yugoslavia's communist past.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Ana,

    Superb composition in producing this architectural portrait, with the pair of people adding a touch of humanity. The note, however, is disturbing, the practice of self-immolation of young women in this culture — their treatment then... and the treatment now (that bus incident a few years ago).

    Warm regards,

    Hello Malgo,

    You've composed the shot perfectly, and framed it in as close a golden rectangle as my eyes can pick up without measuring it (1:1.618). It is a bit unusual to see the dominant color in the bride's choice of wedding dresses, On Nov. 3, we were in Honolulu on the beach and I took a photo of a young couple... just getting married. With a long lens I captured the scene on the beach, surrounded by a few strangers gallivanting on the sand.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Denis,

    The shimmering reflections in the water, a generallyl monochromatic scene punctuated by the red buoys and a small white boat, all elements of a very good composition. Warm regards,

    Hi John,

    The distance between the park and the house is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the architecture of the house. The cloudy sky is giving a good cntrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

    The distance between the village and the citadel is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the mountain and of the citadel. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

    Greeting Klaudio,

    With the sepia colors, it is even more evocative of a piece of garden sculptor than iff were in color. The acrobatic mother and daughter... playing on the grass, befitting Western Europe, or that outpost of Wester Europe, Australia. You would not see such playful scenes in countries with abject poverty. Well done.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gerrit,

    You've captured the face of cruel poverty in the faces and demeanor of these innocent children. It tears at my heart strings to see such abject poverty, and it is all they know. There is a simple pyramidal structure in their grouping that adds to the composition. Well done photo, if not terribly disturbing scene.

    Warm regards,

    Greetings Iain,

    A beautiful portrait of the old gal, who has seen so much. But without your note, it would just be a very good photograph. There is symbolism in the rope (replete with a complex knot) hanging next to her, somewhat bothersome... perhaps suggesting a martyr of some sort. Although her face is located well in the frame, I wonder if a very much closer crop would not make it even more dramatic. That 97° heat, especially for October, would be suffocating in itself.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Christina,

    There is an element of Hencri Cartier-Bresson in this haunting composition. Great art is open ended, inviting viewers to interpret the work, and a thousand different interpretations emerging. I like your photo very much, and so too the note.

    What a gorgeous line of buildings, so perfectly maintained. The colors are subdued and exuding taste. You've captured the scene very effectively.
