    Hej Gert,
    En passande bild vid en händelse som denna. Trots detta en mycket intressant och vältagen bild. Dessutom intressant att notera att somliga inte alls läser texten till bilden...

    Hello Mariusz

    We visited Stonehenge too a couple of weeks ago & must say I was quite impressed. Yes, English prices are steep and it's being talked down a lot, but when it's not too crowdy and given a minimal historical framework, it really is impressive.

    In your picture I like that bit of clear sky in the distance.

    Superb timing & a superb capture of two different styles (hair, clothes, physique...), above versus below, high and low...you know what I'm talking about...

    I suppose the man on the screen is a preacher, but by his looks he could just as well have been a politician or a retired movie star. Maybe he is all three.

    Cheers

    Hi Don

    Just discovered your gallery here. I like the way your personal touch brings something different here. Black/white shots, half documentary, half poetry, but combined, not seperate.

    This one is a shot that for me stands out on your opening page. Yes, it's the helmet. Like a big black alien head, severed, on the ground, abandonned.

    Nice one!

    Bonjour Jean Jacques

    A classic provence shot, superb colours and light, just the right angle to capture the beauty of the street.

    God morgon Gert,
    En otroligt bra förgrund. Kvinnan och barnet är en bild som är rent klassisk. Något brôtig bakgrund men att radera den är ju tyvärr inget alternativ. Men en mycket bra bild, allt sammantaget.

    Hello Klaudio

    Great shot, Klaudio. And your long note certainly is food for thought :)

    Also in Belgium we tend to associate 'doggy bags' with Anglo-American eateries, rather than with quality restaurants.

    Yet, recently those bags seem to be becoming more popular. Part of the problem is in its rather unappealing name, so language people are doing their best to come up with a more appetizing name for it, though.

    And Iranian cuisine...looks yummy to me!!

    Hello Leszek

    A fine portrait, if you ask me. Great sharpness and dof. Colours all very natural and bright. The worn baseball cap and the pensive look on the man's face make it stand out even more.

    Dag Robert

    Mooi pov, met de weg die naar het fortje leidt. De PP is precies goed, méér zou (naar mijn smaak) overdreven zijn. Ook de saturatie van de kleuren (zeker het rood van de daken) zit perfect tegen de limiet. Knap werkje.

    Groetjes.

    Bonjour Denis

    The reflections are superb, as usual. And the presence of the couple in the middle of the colours is another positive here.

    Merci pour partager & bonne semaine.

    Hello Leslie

    The strong filter and the slightly off-focus feel add even more timeless charm to the scene. The daffodils do the rest :)
    Great shot.

    Hej Gert,
    Du har fått med mycket i den här bilden, fascinerance arkitektur och ett myllrande folkliv. Till och med en röd ögonfångare. En intressant text gör det naturligtvis mycket bättre också.

    Flamingo pink pushed up to saturation point, thankfully just not tilting over. Great threatening sky in the background. Fine piece of work. Glad to see you're still posting your quality shots here.
