    Hello Sasha,
    These cherries look so good. The shiny red fruit really stand out against the BG and the lovely tablecloth. Excellent quality image.

    Hello John,
    I love these quaint houses with their smart white walls and black paintwork. The black dog matches rather nicely! Indeed, the lady and her dog also give a nice balance and life to the composition. The whole place looks very clean and a great place to stroll.
    Gorgeous quality - very well done.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hi Ana
    A simple architectural features but it makes us think about the history of this place and you do this image with such style and skill at the right time of day when the subtle warm light nicely filtering through giving wonderful tones, shades and shadows. To me what so striking is the colour combination and the would be prayer is there aiding you with the compo. The building that stands the test of times! Quality shouts at you, Congrats.
    Best regards

    Greetings JayCee

    Well, well, well - there you go - another three dwuberwoos for yer!

    Being an Englishman it goes without saying that I am naturally obsessed with the weather - it is in my jeans, sorry I mean genes. A total washout yesterday here and today bright warm sunshine, so your little trick worked on this side of the pond - so thanks mate!

    This posting is one where you really do need to look at all 3 images, to get the real handle on what you are promoting. Once again you have come up with something original, and thought provoking and dare I say imaginative. All 3 images are wonderful and can I assume you walked up to this lofty peak to capture them? (wry smile on my boat race).

    We get a great idea of how much of a sprawl Phoenix is and how the downtown area is really the only place that stands out, but that seems common to a lot of US cities. Despite being a desert it looks amazingly green though, so no hosepipe bans in you neck of the woods then.

    If I can miss a season can it be the cold and dark one please!

    Another wonderfully interesting and unusual posting Mr Phelps!

    another cracker of an Alpine shot. Love the simplicity and creativity of this one. All the idyllic elements are here and all captured so attractively.

    A masterpiece! - I love it!

    Hello Jean
    like you I am always amazed how some buildings are perched in places like this, especially as a lot of areas around the Mediterranean are prone to tremors. But they do look so characterful and idyllic as this shot clearly demonstrates. These ones have obviously stood the test of time and tide too!

    I remember this pace from my visit a fair few years ago now. Nice to see it is unchanged and still looks immaculately clean. Like this enticing shot and the motive here fits the atmosphere of this magical place so aptly.

    this is a lesson in night photography and use of long exposures to special effect. It is so sharp and fascinating, with the lights making this an extraordinary piece of imagery.

    Hello Malgo
    I have to say I never realised that Russian Metro stations were so amazing and I have you and JayCee to thank for enlightening me. This one is just awesome and reflects the difference in societies in Russia compared to here in the UK. This painting would never remain in this condition I'm sorry to say if left unguarded in my country. The station is so beautiful and must be a real pleasure to experience, unlike the London Tube!

    Hello Rosemary
    nice upwards original shot of Italian washing. Washday blues is the UK is when it is raining outside and there is very little chance of it being hung out to dry, this looks like a perfect day, so the blues here is the idyllic blue sky above. Like the effect and it is not only the washing that looks crisp and clean in this one. :-)

    This is a first class shot. The black and grey smoke fills the sky so well and I love the drama of the train coming towards me. The red really lifts the picture. Expertly processed - very well done and TFS.

    Hello Ann
    this is just beautiful and must be all the more so when you see it first hand. A real lesson in composition and a shot that is almost naturally a mix of B&W and selective colour. It works perfectly and I must say is an inspiring piece of imagery.

    I love it!

    This has been beautifully presented so that the graphic effect is both bold and attractive. I can make out the tram and the pedestrians very well. The colours work well together especially with the gold/yellow BG. Visually stunning.

    This is very artistically shot. I love the billowing washing against the blue sky. There is plenty of detail in the sheets.
    Very well conceived and original.
