    Hello Jean.
    Lots of 'verticals' in this photo, and delightful colours on a sunny Spring day. Those sheds make a great background for the small boats. The scene has a delightful sense of peace and quiet about it.

    Hello Jorge.
    Congratulations on reaching this milestone on TE. I completely forgot about my 10 years last October!
    You've chosen an imposing scene to celebrate the occasion. A magnificent, well-preserved fortress shot from a great viewpoint against a lovely sky. Sharp, detailed, and with natural colour tones. Great note too.

    Hi Claude.
    A great b/w creation. The monochrome effect makes the strong contrast more even stark and seems to confuse the viewer about the time of day - we see the figures' very short shadows, yet there is a darkness here as well, as a large cloud moves over the dune, adding an element of strangeness. You did very well to compose - and probably crop? - this, and I like the stances of the nearest figures, and also the presence of the tiny pair in the top left corner. The gentle curve of the horizon is also appealing. My favourite photo today!
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Ali.
    I suppose I am not very well informed about your country, so I would not associate this scene with Iran. But if you live in the north of the country, it must be very cold in the winter. This is a beautiful shot, well exposed. I understand what you mean by the difficulty of automatic exposure when there is so much white in the scene. You captured the details in the trees and the house very well. An elegant and delicate composition.

    A very good composition of this view of such colorful well preserved buildings. I think you timed it well to catch the group walking past, adding life to the scene.

    A very good early morning photo, very sharp and with beautiful colour tones. It's quite mysterious looking in this light, despite being just redcurrant bushes. Nice work with phone camera.

    An excellent sunset shot, better than most because of the composition and the warm but very subdued tones of colour. The two lines of boats make a good perspective effect. Very nicely done.

    Hello Kari.
    Maybe you didn't see any whales, but you got this very good photo. The washed-out colour and the very soft sunlight on the snow are very atmospheric in this almost minimalist shot. I think it conveys a strong sense of desolate wilderness and the sea looks very dark and inhospitable. Well done.

    Hello Roland.
    Congratulations on reaching the milestone of 1000 photos! Your photo to celebrate is a study in simplicity which pleases the eye with its rich colour, square shapes and diagonal shadows. Thanks for this delightful composition, which well expresses the Mediterranean sunlight of late Summer.

    Hello Rob,

    This is a delightful photograph, very well seen and very well taken! I love how the historic and iconic St. Paul's Cathedral is captured in the reflections of this very modern shiny sculpture. I tried a similar trick last year too but with the big metal "balls" in St. Peter Street just a few metres from here but my "balls" weren't as shiny and the photographs were a disaster!

    It is wonderful how the convex surface of the sphere essentially makes a wide-angle lens and so gives you an enormous depth of field. Your image is very well composed, the light and colours are excellent and the details and sharpness exquisite.

    Bravo!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    You have written a fascinating note about the ancient history of this place and given us a beautiful photograph accompany it!

    Your composition is exceptional, the curving smooth river leading our eyes through woodland into the distance beneath a lovely sky while the bright red poppies make a stunning foreground feature and remind us that spring is now upon us.

    Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    I love this picture! I like the narrow road running beneath a canopy of overhanging trees and eventually disappearing over a hill in the far distance, but it is the presence of the three horses and riders in the foreground which really strengthen the composition and help to lead our eyes along this narrow country lane.

    Lovely light and colours and perfect exposure.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    A fascinating note about the ancient and troubled history of this place and a beautiful photograph to accompany it!

    I love these narrow streets with the high buildings on either side and you have captured this one perfectly in a fine composition. The light is beautifully soft, the colours natural but rich and your exposure is perfect.

    Beautiful!

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    What a fascinating note but the history seems a bit off-beat to me. Unless I'm thinking of some other Edward, Prince Edward (eldest son of Queen Victoria) had become King Edward VII in 1901 on the death of his mother and he himself had died in 1910 before this pier was built.

    Anyway, no matter, for this is a stunning photograph! You may say that this place is a photographer's dream to shoot but I doubt if many photographers could come away with so impressive a shot as this.

    I love your bold and strong symmetrical composition but, as with all great photographs, it is the beautiful soft lighting which really makes this one stand out from the crowd. The way the soft light catches those wooden posts making them stand out against the mirror-smooth dark water is to die for. Gorgeous colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ourania.
    You've done very well with this one, with the composition and the light. The picture has a real elegance and delicacy about it, and the great depth provided by the underwater stones in one corner and the far hills in the opposite. Technically, I think you controlled the highlights very well in bright conditions. A delightful picture.

    Hello Ana.
    Your excellent note combined with the well composed photo, gives a very good idea of this pilgrimage and its place in the life of people in this region. Your close crop is very effective, and you wisely chose to include the various figures behind the strong foreground interest of the wagon. Well done.

    Hello Luciano.
    A lovely shot, well composed and cropped of all extraneous detail so one may appreciate the pattern made by the several prows of the boats, and the lovely patterns painted on the hulls. The exposure is excellent - restrained in order to give richness of colour and to prevent over-exposure of the highlights and sky. Your note gives insight into the lives of the fishermen.

    Hello Paul.
    A fine composition, with the gathered people showing very well the scale of the display which curls above them. You did a very good job despite the difficulties of making an exposure. The composition is very good and the perspective effect is strong. Good note to go with it. I've spent some time in Ghent on a couple of occasions, both in winter, and found it to be a superb city, so well cared for by its residents.

    Bonjour Denis.
    There must be some significance in a red door in Breton chapels. Your photo reminded me of my own shot of a chapel with red door in the centre of Bretagne:

    As usual, your photo is so well composed and has exquisite colour and sharpness of detail. The higher resolution version looks splendid; the sky and the Spring light are wonderful.

    Good note and excellent well cropped photo with decisive diagonal and several interesting patterns made by the colonnade, the girls and the framework overhead. I like the splash of colours against the grey tones.
