    Hi Dale
    you've got yourself a fine post card type of shot here my friend, and there's nothing to be ashamed about with that...i love post cards.

    I remember being here and we got rained on, we had to run for cover in some adjacent building for about 30 min.

    We never did get to go inside of the large castle, I was satisfied with just looking at it as we see it here.

    pretty grande isn't it, interesting to see so few people around. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Kiks
    A vibrant panorama in slim format fully stretched portraying the coastal town with some attractive eye popping colours and foreground interest. Thanks to your attention to detail, light quality and exposure combination capped by spotless blue sky as added value to the image. Good work, Congrats

    Hi Carlo
    I like the overall style and way the composed the scene with the tall walk on the right, it makes a great visual impact for sure.

    and of course you can never go wrong with blue and yellow together.

    nice to have the cloud coverage to cap it all off.
    cheers

    Hi Jorge
    I saw this one posted on your random gallery page, I just had to take a closer look at it.
    the key to the photo are the two large vertical columns, and of course the dome with its details are great too.
    I like the darkness surrounding the image too. nice work
    cheers

    Hi John
    I have nothing to complain about with this one, its classic all the way.

    beautiful and very smart lighting/exposure, the details on the outside walls is fantastic.

    I like how you composed the scene too, it has that post card style and look to that thats very attractive.
    well done
    cheers

    Hi Erling
    i've missed a few of your latest posts, i'm going to have to catch up. and yeah, isn't it funny how those colours often seem to match up as you mentioned when composing our scenes.

    I like how the scene is full from side to side and up/down.
    the shadows casted by the trees make an attractive appearance on the homes too.

    So how does this work? take the yellow and red building for example...we see 4 levels to each building...does that mean there are 4 families living there? or perhaps its a business?? Just curious.

    lovely shot from Bergen, whats not to like?
    cheers

    Hi Kari
    Singapore...never been here myself, perhaps one day.
    yeah, I would agree with you, it does look pretty good today.
    built in 1929 you'd think they would have made the bridge a little more in the Art Deco style, but then again this is a very conservative culture.
    lovely light and colour reflections on the water surface, and I like that the bridge columns are staggered.
    cheers

    Hi Murat
    Your workshop photo is useful guiding us thru this shot, indeed that roofing colour gives a real extra punch to the setting. Wow, bright looks like a postcard of this peaceful residential area abound of wonderful greenery. Hopefully they dont have to wait for you to complete the job... he he.

    Dear Dale,

    Simplicity works well here, the flowers in the foreground balance the robust tower in a very pleasing way.

    Hello Dale,
    It's an uncomplicated but quite efficient composition. I like the contrasts of the green meadow and the brown tower. The blue flowers make the foreground nice and the hillside has given you a fine diagonal that splits the photo in two halves. It's very well exposed and saturated,
    Berst regards,
    Gert

    Hi Gert
    This is what I call "Gertesque". In your last critique to my image you referred to it as "nothing special", however, following your train of thought, I would rather call it "nothing special BUT...". What you have here is a well-observed interesting situation, cultural connotations and a strong sense of place. I also like the very graphic sense of perspective (also in the other WS photo).
    Well-used unexpected photo opportunity - in this case your taking the wrong turn at the station. :-)

    Hi Jean Claude
    This is an impressive church and is really strong towers look amidst military in design, add if built partially for defence. Great angle to shoot from and great placement in the frame.

    Bonsoir, cher Mesut,
    Très bonne composition emplie d'humour, il faut reconnaître le talent de certains artistes de rue.
    L'image ressort très bien en version large.
