    Hi Kari
    so what do we have here?
    you know what I think about when I see this? I think about how many bugs and flies there are! alot right? It must be aweful at some times of the year.

    Personally, i'm not one for such cottages out in the forest, but thats just me.

    as for the photo though, thats a different story. I've been enjoying this series as you show us very rural areas most people do not venture out into. another fine shot showcasing the landscape.
    cheers

    Hi Carlo
    how could I have possibly missed this one in your gallery?
    there are so many attractive features to point out, the colours of the buildings, the clouds, the blue sky, the lime green grass, the statue...its beautiful.
    perfect exposure all the way
    cheers

    Hi Lisa
    as much as I like this man's style with his shoes and his casual stance, its on a sad occasion that we view this photo.
    a Proud shop keeper he is. well documented scene, culture and history wrapped up into one.
    thoughts and prayers are with Italy

    Hi Danos
    for me, this shot is all about the blue boat on the left.
    really like its strong angular lines and hot it almost has that 3D like effect. and even though its blue like the water, it still stands out well.
    fine post for its colors, exposure and boats
    cheers

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    A fine tribute to the people of central Italy who have suffered so dreadfully in the past few days from this tragic earthquake which has taken so many lives, ruined so many others and destroyed some of their most historic and beautiful buildings and treasures.

    Geez, I love this spindly fellow with his simple round spectacles, smiling at you as he proudly shows off the bounteous display of fabulous Italian foodstuffs that fill his store, the shelves, the floor and even the ceiling all dripping with glorious goodies from pastas, wines, meats and cheeses to delicacies, sweets and liqueurs - where on Earth is one supposed to walk in this fantastic Cornucopia? Gosh, I'd love to meet him!

    A brilliant photograph and I can just imagine you lining up this shot with this chap beaming at you - all I hope is that you bought some of his wares and had a wonderful time gorging yourself on them afterwards!

    And, of course, it is the indomitable sprit of people like this who will make central Italy recover after this dreadful disaster.

    Wonderful!

    Kind Regards e un abbraccio,

    Giovanni.

    Hello Stephen,

    Once again, Clermont-Ferrand is giving you a wondrous series of opportunities for your camera! And you have again written a fascinating and informative note.

    This building itself is fascinating - stone built in its lower part but half-timbered in the upper storeys.

    I like your strong diagonal composition. The light and colours are good though I'm just a little concerned about that sky which looks on my monitor to have a slightly greenish hue to it - but the fašade of the building is lovely with perfect colours and excellent sharpness and detail.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Stephen,

    Doors and windows always provide good photographic subjects and this fine doorway is no exception though I'm reminded that our own front door is rapidly approaching this state and that I must do something about it before winter sets in.

    It's strange, but decay and rust and flaking paint do seem to appeal to photographers and that is very much the case here. The light, contrasts and textures of the flaking paint and rotting woodwork are well captured in this fine photograph and the bold stone archway makes a perfect frame for the main subject.

    A good rub down and a fresh coat of paint would indeed make this door look a lot better but might make its stone surround look more shabby - perhaps best just leave it as it is!

    Splendid!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    An interesting and informative note and a lovely photograph with wonderfully strong perspective. aided by your high viewpoint.

    The line of repetitive steps draws the eye well into the image and I love how the people seem so small and insignificant, their shadows standing out more than they do themselves. Almost monochrome, the image is brightened by the colourful patch of grass on the right and the sight of the colourful area of people eating and drinking alfresco in the foreground.

    Lovely light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

    Wonderful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Good evening Krzysztof,
    A decorated fašade of the church, with the red dome seems beautifully above. There are three architecture styles on this picture with the houses adjacent, and the chosen perspective included the street scenery with palm tree and cars that added nice colors and different texture to the whole.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Ike
