    Hi Fabiano,

    You have captured well the action of the gondolas. The length of the canal is givng depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings. Have a nice day.

    Hello John,

    Some interesting notes to accompany your photograph. I did not realise just how recent Belgium became its own country. You make me feel guilty about my lack of knowledge concerning Europe.
    You have chosen a fine viewpoint, using the gardens as a pleasing introduction to the main building and setting up contrasts in colours, materials and textures.
    Although you are unsure about the purpose of the building, it is obviously one of importance from its size and position. It appears to be later in date than the building just in the b/g.
    As always, the exposure is superb, the detailscrisp and clear.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
    I have been on holiday to Ibiza for a while and have a lot of catching-up to do!

    Hello Lars,

    I am not surprised that this house is protected (it is what we would call listed) for it looks like a fine example of a timber framed house and will be centuries old. The style is very different from those found in the U.K., having a very chequerboard like construction.
    Your photograph has great clarity so the details are easy for us to appreciate. The low, evening sunlight has brightened the facade in a most attractive way and you have controlled it perfectly.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    Once you have seen that blob it sort of takes over!
    I read your dialogue with Gert!
    A fine bit of cloning; even Gyorgy couldn't object!

    I have added a little w/s for your interest - no cloning involved!

    It is a fine photograph, well composed, crisp, clear and perfectly revealing your intention of reflections.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    I cannot help but be impressed by the general cleanliness and the impeccable condition of the houses; this looks like a quality neighbourhood.
    You have angled the viewpoint nicely, to give a strong f/g triangle, edged by the attractive balustrade. The trees and the lawn bring a freshness and a sense of the countryside. Maybe they add privacy to the occupants, too.
    A very well exposed photograph giving excellent clarity.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Alain,

    J'apprécie les reflets sur l'eau. Les méandres de l'étang donne de la profondeur à la scène. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des arbres. Une image qui donne une sensation de tranquillité. Bonne journée.

    Hi Silvio,

    The wideness of the pasture is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the field. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. It is looking like a painting. Have a nice day.

    Bonjour Serge,

    I have seen some fine photographs of this location but not any better than this. I like how you have anchored the f/g with the boats, which helps to set the atmosphere of the town, as well as creating a fine sense of depth.
    The moored boats seem to compete vertically with the the eclectic mix of houses, perhaps symbolically establishing the importance of sailing!
    A good dof and well saturated colours completes this fine shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    I'm captivated by this photograph. It's a place I have long wished to visit but can only see on film and photograph!
    You have given us some excellent details of the f/g breakwater, the mood of the sea and the Citadel, with its huge protective walls, prefaced by tourists and fishermen.
    The surfaces of the blocks indicate their use and condition.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
    Thank you for your detailed answer to my query. I think you are extremely brave to travel alone in a country which is undergoing such difficult conditions.

    Hello Ney,

    This is a beautiful scene which you have enhanced with classical compositional skills.
    The tree is very effective, acting like a natural frame but also linking together the lovely elements of land and sky. The stones give immediate f/g interest, display excellent textural details and help create a fine sense of depth.
    There is a real sense of 'being there' which I find very satisfying.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Will,

    Two girls, deep in thought, maybe just trying to solve a problem, or deciding on an outcome, who can say, but their closeness adds interest to the photograph. The fact that they were not aware of you, despite your closeness, suggests that they were wrapped up in their own thoughts.
    It's a fine composition, especially with the textures of the surrounding stone being so good but, it is csrtainly the mood of the two girls that captures attention.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
