    Hello Stephane,

    What a nice double fishers houses, with a very good isolation system with high walls in earth.
    Colours and sharpness make these picture attractive.
    Excellent composition, very well done, TFS.

    Have a nice weekend,

    Dag Gerrit,

    Dus deze klim zou misschien niet meer voor mij zijn, nochtans ik voel me weer prima na driejaar van ellende en fietsongevallen, met veel breuken, twee ongevallen in 13 maand tijd, dat kruipt in de koude kleren man!
    Heel mooi panorama beeld over deze stad, maar ook het dorp in de voorgrond maakt uw picture heel aantrekkelijk.
    Mooi foto werk, bedankt.

    Prettig weekend,
    John.

    Hello Satya,

    TE is but hobby, but this is indeed very heavy work.
    Your picture shows perfect the big catch with the two big fishes in foreground.
    Also a very well contrast picture with the sea in background.
    Excellent composition, very well done, TFS.

    Hello Ike,

    I find your second picture a nice addition to your first picture.
    Incredible that this fortress after a lot years still can see everyday.
    This cares for depth and perspective.
    Also a very well contrast picture with the big stones in foreground.

    Hello Paja,

    I don't know but the pictures become very big, almost not on one screen to look at.
    You choose a very well angle low about the water and exactly between the two mountains.
    This cares for depth and perspective.
    Also a very well contrast picture with the river in foreground.
    Excellent composition, very well done, TFS.

    I'm pleased to see the Union Flag in the corner of the Red Ensign Brian... I cannot image it without the blue and white St Andrew's Cross! An appropriate and beautiful shot. I like the close crop where the sails are beautifully rendered with rigging and shadows finely detailed. The image is removed somewhat from its maritime genre and I like the way it takes on a more creative abstract quality.

    Warm regards

    Hi Fredrik
    Firstly, I must admit you have done a great job in post production. I would have never guessed this image was taken from a bus through a glass window.
    Interesting country Swaziland, I've read a couple of articles about it recently. You captured the diversity of the landscape nicely with the pastures in the foreground and some mountains on the horizon.
    Have a nice weekend

    Hello Klaudio - I waited until the results were in before I commented on this excellent double portrait. I prefer the B&W version as the focus is stronger on the men without the distraction of the background detail. The colours of the tartans and braids are lovely in the colour version though.

    As an British citizen I have been following the independence debate with great interest and I am very happy that the Union remains intact. What a collection of characters and unique cultures it is comprised of and all the richer for that.

    I believe that the focus in Westminster should be less London-centric than it is and that it is not just Scotland that often feels abandoned. There are huge disparities of economic well-being across the land and the wise should take this as a wake-up call.

    Thanks for posting this topical shot and thought provoking note.

    Warm regards

    I love this shot Malgo - the mushroom market is so different from many market scenes. The earthy richness of the fungi and the way they are displayed in simple plastic buckets together with the clothing of the stall keeper immediately makes me think of rustic, rural lifestyles and simple wholesome food.

    Gosh they do look delicious!

    Hello Gosia - The contrasting blue and yellows gives this image huge appeal and helps to define the inner and outer spaces really well. I like the few figures that break up the symmetry; they are very well positioned.

    As always your night shots are very well presented.

    What a lovely shot Wolfgang. We cannot see the child's face and yet he/she is the centre of attraction here and we can see just how much the parents are captivated by his/her presence. Beautifully managed, the fountain of water has just enough detail to give the context without detracting from the scene at all. A superb family portrait.

    Howdy Desert Fox

    This could only be from the viewfinder of your camera sunbeam - true "Cowlingesque" imagery that is a prime example of your lateral thinking. Clever in concept and execution, not sure what "tandem" in Russian means, I know there was a lot of controversy over the Putin/Medvedev tandem with them swapping roles in 2011, but I doubt that is what is being referred to here! Perhaps Sir Serghei can proffer some explanation.

    Lots of colour and character here - like it!

    Captain Pugwash!

    Your weather is making headlines here - you getting a soaking I understand!

    a beautifully wide open view this and it works so enticingly. The light divides the shot but also provides depth and a compelling simplicity to this image. An eye-catching take on this TE favourite.

    Hello John
    this did bring a smile to my face! You have to admire any man that can manage to get in touch with his feminine side and not mind who sees him or photographs him. A real character shot this and captured perfectly and completely off-guard.

    It looks like Dolly Partem needs a shave!!

    Hello Rosemary
    this title was always going to grab my attention. The "Fab 4" at their very best and a song that stands head and shoulders above what sometimes passes as music nowadays. The world does seem to be in a bit of a state again doesn't it? We seem to be slipping back into a Cold War Era once again and I do not understand why. If only the solutions were B&W like this fine image, but unfortunately it is not that simple.
