    Hello Claude

    Yes... rain is nothing special in Manchester since it happens all of the time!

    A nice example of your street observations.


    Have a good weekend

    Great use of light and shade to create an abstract landscape. Nicely done.

    Hello Uhu

    I like the overall tone and atmosphere that the greys create here. It looks like an intimidating kind of coldness.

    Have a good weekend.

    Hello IKe

    I like this a lot. Most people dismiss graffiti art but if you look at the level of detail in this it is clear it has been done by a very skilled artist indeed. Quite remarkable.

    Have a good weekend.

    Hello Jean

    Well composed making good use of the jetty as a lead line. The image has a foreground and a mid-ground island and then the BG is provided by the mountains. The whole composition is well structured.

    Have a good weekend.

    Hello Neyvan

    Yes the tranquillity sings in this photo. I love the way the rocks in the water increase in contrast as a result of being under the cold clear water. It is hot today here - I could swim in this!

    Ciao Luciano

    You made the best of a cloudy day here. The clouds contrast with the colourful harbour creating an almost split tone effect. Nice to Vesuvius was not erupting too!

    Hello Craig

    Well one reason not to love it is that it doesn't have the modern architecture you and I love! But I guess that's it's appeal for some. If you had come just a little further south on your visit I coulda took you around some of the modern architecture you love. Maybe next time.

    You managed to get John up there too? Usually when we meet up the furthest we go is one step up into the nearest pub! I'll be seeing him soon - I'm going to ask him about his new health regime on the Nelson step-master!

    Great POV and overview of this beautiful city.

    Hello Gert

    Well the ducks seem to be in the minority here! They are completely at odds with the busy urban landscape inhabited by people but clearly able to adapt and fit in with their new neighbour.

    Nice observation.

    Hi Bill

    Yes - these buildings are amazing aren't they - I spent over two hours wandering around this place and got lost at one point - I had a real sore neck after with all the looking up at these things!

    Take care

    Nice colour blue in the water that contrast well with the limestone and brownish colours. Clear blue water that makes me feel tranquil. Good note too.

    Nice shot - I like the desaturation of the scene abd the colour popping of red. A point of interest in a very barren landscape.

    This shot of Scottish nationalism is ironic given that it is not in Scotland - a case of a transnational diasporic community!

    A very glamorous member of the red cross! I recognise the water bottle that she carries at her waist. It is the same as one that Serghei very kindly gave to me as a present. Nice remembrance photo.

    Hello Craig

    My favourite so far to come out of the Edinburgh TE meeting! Partly I guess, because it's monochrome, partly the biting sharpness, and also the wonderful strong contrasts from the harsh midday sun (in Scotland!), which beautifully reduce towards the background. Fine shot.

    Regards

    Hello Gert,

    Three lovely clear and sharp photographs and an interesting and informative note too - though perhaps you should have kept the recommendation of Södermalm island as a lovely place to visit to yourself. :)

    How amazingly patient these ducks must be: I am sure that the seagulls we have in parts of Britain (and perhaps in Scandinavia too) would have no hesitation whatsoever in snatching that sandwich straight out of the lady's hand while she was preoccupied with her conversation on her mobile 'phone.

    Three lovely photographs, each of amazing technical quality and with very natural and true colours. All well seen and taken too.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Jean,

    This is a fine looking house and if I were in the process of looking for a house (and if I had enough money!) I am sure I'd fall in love with this place too as it looks utterly delightful in your fine photograph.

    I've always loved reading Kipling's poems, having been introduced to them by my father many, many years ago but now, after seeing a programme on the telly about Kipling's reporting from India, particularly Simla, and having acquired a Kindle copy of his book "Plain Tales from the Hills", I've found that he was also an astute reporter as well as an excellent writer of fact as well as fiction and a wonderful commentator on the human condition.

    Anyway, your photograph certainly does this magnificent home justice. There's a wonderfully serene quality to this photograph with its soft light and fine colours and with beautiful reflections on the calm water of the little lake. Excellent and pleasing composition, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
