    Hello Craig,

    You're right, this is different!
    The people, with their stance, give the impression that this is a film scene, and what a fantastic backcloth! It is beautifully composed with just the right dof. I like it very much!

    Kind regards,

    Hello Mike,
    I like the colours and textures of the bronze. What is the significance of the elephant for Denmark? I know there is a Danish award, the Order of the Elephant and that Carlsburg sell an Elephant beer in Denmark, though nowhere else it would seem.

    Hi, Bev,
    This is very interesting report about your trip. I also like WS photos, especially with Malgo in Arizona. I am not sure but the American squirrels seem to me more grey than red.
    Amazing capture of the bridge reflection, original composition.

    Hi Danos
    Excellent capture with history lesson! showing the adverse contrast from two diff world sitting side by side. A striking image with powerful colours and the immaculate detail taken on a brill light and it's a great idea to colour pop this shot. It's clever bit of observation and flawlessly taken of a really intriguing historical sight, Congrats.

    Hello John,

    Happy Christmas to you, too.
    I is good to see that there is so much going on in Bruges after the main tourist season.
    You have given us an excellent, bird's eye view of he market place with the shoppers, the stalls, the skating and the horse carriages. It is alive with attractions!
    The circular road guides us around the scene, with lots of opportunities to absorb the attractive buildings, too.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Good morning, Serge,

    Oh, this is very familiar place to me. We were here 3 years ago and I remember the grey sky and the cold rain. But anyway Verona is very nice city with a lot of famous places. (Special thanks to Shakespeare)

    Have a great week!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    This misty morning has given an unusual but attractive light to the scene; it creates very mystical atmosphere.
    You have positioned the trees well so that there is a very natural, diagonal movement from the l/h f/g into the b/g.

    My warm regards,

    Ciao Romano,

    Not the ancient Roman views that you have shown us previously but, nevertheless, a very well composed photograph that shows different and interesting aspects of the city. You have excellent leads, contrasting textures, and all under a fine light.

    Hello Ana,

    The misty conditions add to the mood of the scene, giving the artificial light a warm glow in the f/g, to illuminate the figure, whilst dimming considerably in the b/g, for a sense of mystery and depth.
    You have composed the photograph well, giving just the right amount of detail and imagination.

    Have a happy Christmas,

    Hello Stephen,

    The lights supply the mood, which is reinforced and multiplied in the swirling reflections of the water. The ferry is very well positioned and supplies a fine sense of depth to the tower and skyscrapers.
    You have used a high ISO, which I know works very well in poor light, so I have a feeling that the 'noise' is probably pollution being picked up by the artificial lights.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Aleks
    Love the perspective and depth with its minimal colour. It's the tarmac that leads my eye into this picture comfortably shaded by those towering trees converging almost meet at a point. There's a nice touch of warm light & shadows while the boring sky is livened by the graduated filter. Well done shot, Congrats.
    Best regards

    We get a very nice view on the the old wooden footbridge with the pink sun in the early morning perfect above the bridge.

    You did very well, with a high sharpness and clarity.
    An excellent composition, very well done, TFS.

    The light is indeed most appealing. The three young ladies are nicely placed and are a key element in the success of the composition. I also like the framing offered by the trees. Very Merry Christmas to you and yours and all the best for 2015!

    A very attractive view this, just a slight pity about the car, but not much you can do about that, unless it's yours:-) I like the light and colours. Good rendering of the textural detail. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours and all the best for 2015!
