    Hi Claude - I really like this monochromatic shot. The frame is beautifully divided into shapes of texture and tone and the balance of the composition is excellent. The couple sitting on the bench on the margin of earth and sky and protected by the slight bend in the tree canopy are perfectly placed. This is a top shot!

    Warm regards.

    Hello Swapan - As a lover of wild landscapes this has plenty of appeal for me. The glacier snakes through the valley and as you took the shot under good light the textural details are well realised.

    Warm regards and thanks for sharing this lovely shot with us.

    Hello Gosia - I missed this one and it's a beauty. The detailing in the architecture and embellishment is fabulous but the addition of the girls adds extra interest and scale. I like their off-centre positioning within what is a finely composed symmetrical shot.

    Have a good weekend

    Hi Magaly - This reminds me of a Constable sky. So wonderfully detailed and full of subtle colour shifts. The FG semi-silhouetted trees and softly lit grass anchor the shot very attractively. Nice work.

    Hello Ricardo - I love what the use of a longer FL does to a landscape shot. Here your choice was excellent and I like the result. The road follows the undulations of the landscape emphasising both them and the hill beautifully. I like the way the middle stripe on the road mimics the cultivation patterns in the fields too. Nicely managed shot with plenty to keep my eye busy.

    Warm regards

    Hello Neyvan - Chile is another country on my long list of places I would love to visit. Not so much the towns but the country areas. I am impressed by the clarity of this shot taken as you flew over the Andes, how well we can see the cultivated land deep down in the valleys. Amazing sight and very well managed shot.

    Warm regards and thanks very much for your kind remarks about my recent Namibia shots. I appreciate them.

    Ciao Silvio - I think the dark shadowy areas contrasted by the sunlit FG add enormously to this shot. It is far more atmospheric than many I have seen of the Fiorita. Fingers crossed next year I can see this spectacle.

    Hi Roland - A great POV and your well managed composition makes the most of the beautiful blues which frame the white structure and colourful flags on the ferry so attractively.

    The single figure adds the extra interesting detail.

    Nicely done!

    Hello Sasa - I like the way you have taken this shot. You are quite separate from those within the payer hall of the mosque, almost a voyeur, but no doubt, looking on with interest at a scene culturally different from your own life. A good metaphor for all of us who travel away from home.

    Nicely realised

    Hi Lisa - You've made a statement with this shot... I would not expect it to be converted to B&W and I doubt many others would see it the way you have. What works particularly well for me is the incredible shading/toning across the spray, you have captured such depth and detail here I am really impressed. No blow outs at all. A powerful burst of natural energy appears to completely overpower the surfer. I'd be terrified!

    Action packed, this is superb.

    Warmest regards and hugs dear friend

    Hello dear friend - A scene straight out of a Tuscan village all set under a clear blue sky. The variety of angles and shapes formed by the architecture and your composition are both interesting and attractive. The floral punctuations add colour and delightful detail.

    Hello Stephen - I can feel the breeze through my hair and the warm sun on my back as I look at this shot. I love taking trips like this, seeing the land from the sea and watching the wake of the boat. This is evocative; making me think of summer holidays by the sea.

    Memories are made from days like this.

    Colourful and quaint, this scene has plenty to attract the eye Serghie. I like the 3 layers that comprise the composition, the boats and buildings look so gay against the layers of blue.

    Gold and deep blue, the colours here are wonderful Piotr. I especially like the fact that the figures are quietly visible, adding to the mood of the shot but in no way detracting from the architecture or sky.

    Congratulations on a job well done.

    Hi Trevor - There is something about these comical-looking birds that gives them a personality and in this lovely shot there seems to be a definite mood of romance and caring. This illustrates your note convincingly. Well timed and attractively managed, this is a fine piece of work.

    An amazing sight Brian and one that I will never tire of. Bluebells are so beautiful I think; not too showy and rather shy hidden away in a woodland setting, their colours are my absolute favourite. In this crazy world that we live in am image like this calms the soul. Thank you!

    Bonjour Denis - I am not surprised that this area is called 'Abundance'. There is an abundance of beauty and I can imagine that the valley floors produce healthy produce during the summer months. The area looks pristinely perfect and well-tended.

    A wonderful scene and a shot that captivates.

    Hello Serge - The low hanging mist threatens to envelope the whole scene here and adds enormously to your shot. Atmospheric; I get a feel for the climate where the lush greens of the forest and vegetable plots thrive.

    Nicely composed the church is well detailed and I like the timeless quality of your image.
