    Hello Stephen,
    There is so much of France that I haven't visited and your photos encourage me to see more. This is a lovely town centre with interesting architecture. The white lines of the pedestrian crossing makes a good flow through the composition so you chose an excellent viewpoint.
    Lovely!
    Best wishes, Ann

    Hello Jean Clude,
    A fine photo of a fantastic castle. It looks like straight from a fairytale book and it's nicely surrounded by trees. You framed the view well and the colours and light are excellent.

    Thanks to your note I can now see what I am looking at. A wonderful abstract making use of the crisp reflection. Very well seen and taken.

    Hello Gunnar,
    What a lovely surprise that you have posted a picture after a long absence. You have been missed. It was good to meet up with Gert in London recently - perhaps you will visit some day.
    You photo is superb as it is both technically excellent and interesting. The detail on this fine church is excellent and looks magnificent against the blue sky.
    Keep posting!
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Indrasish

    This is a very effective photograph. The setting sun highlights the ferry on its way up river, and the tones of sunset are realistic-looking and not too over-saturated. But it's the silhouette of the boy in the foreground that lifts this image and makes it so much more interesting. Good work.

    Hello Mesut

    What an amazing shop front: it looks like a dolls' house. I love the quirky little details. The light was very flat, but this has allowed all the bits and pieces to be seen rather than half of them being in deep shadow.

    Hello Ana

    With a photograph like this every detail counts, and you've nailed it. The saturation in the sky from your polarizer has given a dose of colour to an otherwise near monochrome shot; the exposure is spot on, and the composition, with the focal point in the strong thirds position works beautifully. A classic simple image.

    Regards

    Hello Craig

    Yes, indeed I like these shots: this posting is a masterclass of composition, with the path leading our eyes into the frame and the mountain balanced by the fir trees on the opposite nearer side of the valley. I don't know if you were using a polarizing filter (not mentioned in the info panel). The contrast - not the saturation - is extreme, certainly, and I wonder how much (if anything) is due to pp work.

    his red and very eye-catching person brightens up the straight lines of the background architecture. A very interesting note too!

    Hi Ourania,
    The straight rhomboid forms to the left provide a very strong contrast to the summer scene with boats and blue water. A very attractive and well composed picture.

    Hello Ourania

    Brave choice of b/w, which is actually what attracted me to it. The lack of colour concentrates our eyes on the essential qualities of the photograph: graphic simplicity and strong design. I like it very much.

    Hello Sven-Erich (with the hyphen!)

    Frozen over or not, this is a delightful scene. The near-perfect reflection is lovely, the colours are muted but natural and realistic; the composition very satisfying. My only wish is that the sky were more prominent: after all you've managed some pretty good reflections of clouds and blue sky in the lake!

    The peculiar foreground trees provide a good frame for the pastel coloured motive of green grass and blue water. A very attractive scene!

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a fine view of thé row of elegant ancient buildings. The café looks too hot and sunny for an outdoor visit at this time of the day, but the girl in the red shirt is perfectly placed and gives the photo the human touch that it needed. The light and colours are excellent.

    Hello Craig,
    You must have had a tough choice which of these three photos to use for the official upload. They are all quite fascinating, but maybe this one is after all the best composition. The path is very nicely surrounded by trees and bushes and the green area creates a fine triangle in the lower corner. The dark mountains look tough and unwelcoming but are great to watch. The clouds are not bad either.
    Regarding my latest photo I didn't walk across the street to show it to the woman. I think I just made a gesture of "thank you" and continued down the street.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Another well taken sports photo. You have a good eye for this combination of action, colours and intense faces. This time you also captured a nice spray of water. It is in every way a very well taken photo.

    Hello Chris,
    I didn't spend much time at the bus stop, but I think I should still have noticed this quite spectacular building if it had existed four years ago. It really looks brand new and very elegant. The surroundings also look recently spruced up, like so many radically modernized areas in Albania. It's a very nice photo with superb light and colours.
    Best regards,

    A very elegant composition of white and blue and slightly curving lines. You found a good POV and there is a nice glimpse of a cloud which makes us understand more easily what we are looking at.
