    Hi Dwaipayan,

    The presence of the hikers has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details of the mountains. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

    Hi Chris,

    Unfortunately, the flags are hiding some areas of the synagogue. The point of view is showing some areas of the architecture of the synagogue. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

    Bonjour Gildas,

    La distance entre le puits et la chapelle donne de la profondeur à la scène. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du puits et de la chapelle. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

    La rue envoie mon regard vers la cathédrale ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de l'architecture de la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Reims. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

    Hello Malgo,

    This is a beautifully composed shot, with the bridge and the people creating an eye-catching spectacle. The reflection gives us double the pleasure!
    It was a good decision to use the f/g vegetation as it gives a nice link with the vegetation in the b/g and creates that sense of depth.

    You amaze me, travelling as you do. How do you manage with so many different languages?

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour icols,

    This is a beautifully composed shot, with the autumnal trees climbing and leading the way up he hillside but the outstanding feature, for me, is the row of shadows; they extend and converge like many spear heads.

    Hello Denis,

    Lavaggiorosso looks like a secret village, cosily hidden in the trees and only visible from the air! It's colours are warm and welcoming and the buildings nicely detailed in this 'aerial' view.

    Hello Brian,

    It's a sleek composition, cutting like a knife through the sky! The mosaic of colours and shapes is eye-catching. The circles appear like many eyes, open at the top and progressively closing!

    Hello Gert,

    Ten months away from home seems unimaginable to me! You were remarkable in your ability to 'see' and photograph the sites, after such a prolonged journey.
    The episode with the driver must have been a very pleasing interlude.
    Your photograph reminds me of times in Greece, when the need to converse with friends has taken precedence over all else. Bus drivers have stopped to converse, whilst still in their buses, oblivious to other drivers and the fact that they were blocking narrow roads! Here, the sheep and calf are patiently waiting. I find that remarkable that they are staying together so patiently, without a dog to herd them.
    It's a photograph that is a fine reminder of your journey. So many details to peruse in this fine composition. I wonder how many will still be the same, if animals are till herded in the streets, if the streets are still cobbled, if the walls are unpainted and if cars are absent!

    Thanks again for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    This calm, autumn mood seems far removed from the terror of Brad the Impaler! I really like how you have given such importance to the reflections and they are not disappointing! Then, of course, there is the pleasure of the reality, and a fine sense of depth, as we move into the distance.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Ann,

    What a contrast with your previous snowy photograph!
    Here, we have snow but the atmosphere, with the golden trees and light colours on the shacks, is relatively warm.
    The chosen angle gives a fine composition, creating a natural flow, past the sharp details of the first shack, into the b/g. There is a great sense of perspective.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mike,

    A photograph with pure mood!
    The shadow is looking away, the lady is looking away, the repeating verticals acting like prison bars between the two figures and, with eyes closed, the figure is retreating into himself.
    I have to say, the poem is heart wrenching!

    Australia doesn't know what it's getting!

    Hi Ike,

    Good symmetry of the 2 green bronze griffons guarding the fountain. I like the wonderful way the top of the bg palm tree seems to be growing from the top of the fountain. Nice reflections in the water too. The pigeons add life. The church at left nicely frames the scene. Tfs!

    Ciao Romano

    Intriguing shot of the alien green face painted on the facade of the bg building. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The upper windows make perfect eyes! The green red blue and pale brown orange colours go well together. Good textural and tonal contrasts and the artists has even included some highlight areas in their sketch! Tfs!

    Hi Ann

    Aha! So this is what I missed. I went to the Grand Canyon and Tucson but not here or Sedona or Antelope Canyon. Maybe next time? The fossilized tree stumps are clearly visible in the fg gully at left. The people add scale and animate the shot. Tfs!

    Hello Giovanni,

    These trees look similar to Korean Gingko trees which also change color in Autumn. The red domed bg building has been well framed by the trees. Good color contrasts against the pale blue sky and the tour group animates the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Roland

    Nice use of the fg arch to frame the distant spire of St Marks. The inclement weather has been well captured. I like the reflections in the partially flooded piazza. The minimalist colours and diffused light work well here. Tfs!
