    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    Questo appare leggermente sottoesposta che, per me, funziona molto bene, rendendo i colori più profondi e più ricchi.
    Gli edifici simbolo di Firenze sono visibili, in tutto il loro splendore, contro l'orizzonte.
    Chi potrebbe mai dubitare che questa è una delle città più belle!

    I miei cordiali saluti,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Luis,

    Yes, this is a charming street and you have shown us the narrow, cobbled pathway, the wooden boarded facades and the terracotta roofs, which make it so charming. The lamp is a good, extra detail to include as it acts a focal point and, further enhances this impression of age.
    The disappearing path produces a sense of curiosity, of mystery which excites our imagination.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a fun photo, and the bright colors are great. This looks more like a Pinocchio festival than carnival. :-) Do you know what group these people were a part of? I assume there were other costumes, too, but these are very eye-catching.

    Hello Denis,
    What a fabulous reflection. The white house and palm tree are great subjects, and I couldn't even tell that this was a color photo until I clicked on the thumbnail. The monochrome tones are very attractive, and in this case a dark, moody sky was perfect.

    Hello Craig,
    Those are definitely some long legs! If I stood next to that guy I'd probably only come up to his knees. :-) An interesting man, combined with great architecture and a bit of Indian art, all combine to make a great photo.

    Hello Bulent,
    This section of Dubai looks even more densely-packed than Manhattan. It's nice that each skyscraper is slightly different, but they all still having striking similarities, as well, and are all very modern. I like the small boats in the foreground, and the trees on the right, too.

    Hello Serghei,
    This is an unusual type of architecture to find in Israel. It looks like a combination of a pyramid on the bottom, and the Capitol Building on top. :-) That hill looks very tall and steep, too. I like the bit of street in the foreground, and the oncoming headlights.

    Hello Bev,
    This is a beautiful composition. The scenery is wonderful, and I like the way the wooden fence slants down towards the lake, leading our eyes right to it. For me, the added bonus is the small, red flowers that add an extra bit of color. Very nice. :-)

    Hello Noel,
    The lovely sunburst and angel silhouette make this photo special. It's amazing that there are more people buried in this cemetery than are currently alive in Dublin. You have a special knack for shooting into the sun and creating a successful image. :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This is almost magical!
    You have taken an amazing, night shot, where the whole village is illuminated with artificial lighting and the tower on the hill is the gem in the crown!
    The bridge makes an effective link line over water that is spotted with colours!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    These museum items are very familiar to me, since I come from an area where sheep farming and wool products are commonplace.
    I recognise the spinning wheels, the winding frame and the straightening brushes.
    You have taken a fine shot of them, where the details are sharp and the composition creates a natural movement from left to right across the frame.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    What a tremendous difference in light between the two photographs, though only 3 minutes apart in time!
    This is a fine photograph in both details and composition.
    I like how you have used the curve of grass and wild flowers to guide us gently around the loch; it is far more pleasing than the road would have been.
    Even though the sky is heavy with clouds, it is still interesting and has not prevented you from obtaining good colours and good depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is like a welcome to Dijon!
    The road guides us immediately into the scene, where colourful flags wave and add to the welcome.
    It's a great composition, the converging lines creating an irresistible access!
    The details of the street and figures have wonderful clarity and, though the sky is blue, the street tells of an earlier downpour.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi, Luciano!

    Hello Bulent,

    What an amazing sight and built so quickly!
    I can't help giving these buildings character!
    They look like turbaned, masked men, standing straight and stern, shoulder-to-shoulder in this imposing, stance of power!

    Your photograph is crisp and colourful, its composition giving rise to my impression!

    Hello Jorge,

    I have seen the Lion's Gate in books, what a treat you had, to see it in reality!
    I think you were right to capture it with tourists in the frame; they add life, scale and colour to the bland hues of the ruins.
    The stones are just amazing! It is hard to imagine people with limited machinery and tools, being able to carve these stones and erect this mighty building.
    Wow, there is so much to see and enjoy in Greece!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi, Serge,
    I saw your latest post, but this view is more attractive to me. Did you use a tobacco filter here? Some special color of the sky told us about. Very nice composition, fine DoF. I was here almost 17 years ago and I'd like to comeback someday again.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    What a fine photograph!
    The snow laden bush, in the f/g, sets the scene of a cold winter's day with irregular shapes tumbling over each other, which is in total contrast to the smooth, regular lines and patterns of the arena. We also have contrasts of light and shadows, too. It's a beautiful composition, where all the features are exactly where they should be!
