    Bonjour Denis,

    The light is important in the mood of the shot. It suggests darkness and danger, so very different from the mood of calm and tranquillity suggested by the moored boats.
    A very well composed shot, the focal, red boat strongly placed.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Kathryn,

    What a mood you have captured here.
    It is peace and tranquillity personified!
    The line of verticals is very important in the composition and works really well with the opposing lines of the colours.
    Lovely!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Christiane,

    Boats, still water and fine sunlight offer wonderful opportunities for photographers and you have done the whole scene justice. Your angled view allows the boats and the b/g buildings to make an excellent focal subject, in a lovely, warm light, with the bonus of the strong, f/g reflections.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    The gravestones set the scene with their multitude of shapes, in formation, to prelude the church.
    The focal church is cosily ensconced between the huge, protective trees and, with its warm colours, makes an attractive focal point.

    I always wonder what sort of people have been buried here. What would be their stories!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    The composition of curved lines and shapes makes this a relaxed, flowing photograph. We move very naturally via the random stone wall, up the pathway, to the moulded lines of the church. For me, the cross, standing proud above the bell tower is the pinnacle in reality and symbolically.
    You have a little dust might on your lens or, maybe, a flying saucer!!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello, Eleu,
    Yes, we have got similar bears here in the Northern Eurasia. ;) Amazing capture of the animal in wild life. Did you use telephoto lens? I think he is not so friendly for meeting. Thanks!

    Hello Mariusz,

    I have no doubt that you will achieve your dream. When there is a strong focus on an event, it does become possible.

    THis is a beautiful night time photograph and is as good as any blue hour photograph could possibly be. Your daughter would be entranced by it. The artificial lights reflecting on the water, make it look like ice. The bridge creates a very interesting separation line and the Basilica is strongly placed.

    I've no doubt that, after the first magic of the moment, you would be able to explain about the compositional features! It is a lovely, very achievable dream!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi, Dwaipayan, again!
    This is very creative idea to take this view in the sunset lights. This is the Gang, and this view and this scene reminds me another places on the Mekong River in Laos. The train bridge on the background told us about the present days. ;)

    Hi, Brian,
    Another interesting photo from the Canyon. Just an art work! Impressive colours and hues, wonderful play of the lights. Splendid composition, fine details. yes, I prefer the live green trees but this skeleton brings something new philosophic idea into this image.
