    Hello Neyvan,

    What a very impressive and striking photograph of this fine old building portrayed beautifully against a deep blue sky!

    The composition, light, colours, details and sharpness are all superb.

    A fine note too.

    Beautiful!

    Kind regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    A very interesting note and a very fine photograph from this part of Brazil.

    The buildings are delightful - the distant old building contrasting well with the colourful buildings on the right and the hundreds of colourfully dressed people in this piazza adding to the appeal.

    Gorgeous soft light and colours, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. The light here is fabulous - could this be a HDR image?

    Hello Jean,

    This is very interesting. Of course, your previous photograph of Scotney Castle was the "classical" view of it which we have all seen several times before, either on TE or on calendars because, as Will (willperrett) would say, most images of it are of the "chocolate box" genre! Having said that, I rather like "chocolate box" pictures.

    But this is a view which I, at least, have never seen before and that, together with your note, makes it all the more interesting. As you say, that fine and majestic old tree stands out wonderfully against the blue sky and it really is the "star of the show", perfectly placed in the frame and nicely balanced in your composition by the ruined walls of the old manor house on the right.

    Fine light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Just one little point. Because I've not been on TL for some time (I really must get back and have a look around sometime), I'm not sure if the image sizes on TL are still limited to a maximum of 800 x 800 pixels. But, as you will have noticed, here on TE you can post pictures almost as big as you want. They are then displayed on "beta" TE at full size but on "new" TE they are reduced to 790 pixels in width.

    Some people are still posting pictures on TE at 800 pixels in width but those images are the ones which appear to suffer the most in loss of sharpness and general quality when they are "shrunk" even although it's only by 10 pixels. Images posted at larger size seem to suffer less on "new" TE.

    I see that you posted this picture at 3500 pixels in width. Even when seen at that size, this one is of excellent quality and it is also of excellent quality on "new" TE after it's been shrunk. The trouble is that some people still use "beta" TE exclusively and so, if you post a picture at 3500 pixels in width, it's impossible to see it all on a screen.

    Personally I've found that if I post images at around 1200 pixels in width they can be viewed in their entirety on "beta" TE and they also seem to be big enough not to suffer too badly with the "shrinking" on "new" TE.

    Anyway, Jean, I just thought I'd point those little things out as I wasn't sure which version of TE you tend to use. And, of course, whichever way you look at this particular photograph, it's a very fine one indeed!

    Bonjour Jean Jacques,

    Another fine photograph from your trip to Oberammergau four years ago - this time not quite a view of wonderful artistry on a classical old building but rather of a rather worn and tired façade which is awaiting restoration and repainting.

    Yet your photograph gives splendid details and we can clearly discern the images and realise just how much work and skill will be required to restore and refurbish those images.

    A very nicely balanced composition with good light and colours and excellent details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    A delightful shot of a pair of tourists relaxing for a while on a seat with their rucksacks and bags beside them. But I don't see a camera! Perhaps these are "ordinary" tourists and not photographers!

    You must have taken this from a balcony but it was very well seen and very well taken. Although we cannot see thesee peoples' faces, we can imagine that they are discussing something about where to go next and what to see.

    A good composition with fine light and colours and excellent details.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Costantino
    haha...yes, thank you for this one.
    its always a great day when you get a dedication photo coming your way :)

    love these stone houses, so much work and time went into building it, and the crimson red window shutters are an excellent addition too.

    and of course don't forget about the laundry haha
