    Hello Serge - I must try a shot like this one day.... 7 frames stitched together most successfully, I'm not sure I am up to that! The distortion really doesn't bother me and I like the fact that you show the surrounding buildings and general ambience of the location.

    Did you use a tripod or is this hand held? The light management across the frame looks well balanced, that must be a challenge in a shot like this.

    Nicely done.

    Warm regards

    Hello Bev - I thought that I recognised this bridge and looking at the superb link you provided confirmed exactly which one it is. I have a shot of it taken when we visited Glasgow a couple of years ago. We enjoyed a walk along the banks of the Clyde and I was impressed by the many bridges that span this once busy waterway.

    Your shot has an attractive tranquillity about it and it is quite extraordinary to be able to show the bridge removed from its busy city setting. You managed to captured some lovely bright reflections in the brown water ... good weather in Glasgow especially for the Games.

    Warm regards

    Hello Denis - What a wonderful surprise I had when I opened up the TN. The wild flowers clustered along the lake's edge make this shot for me. I know they are a small detail in your overall composition but they add a freshness to the shot and bring an intimacy which benefits the overall view. Lovely location ad so nicely presented

    Hello Carlo - As you know, we didn't visit Rome but I did notice the many fountains and wells both in Tuscany and Umbria. I surmised that the Romans, who are known for their love of bathing and fresh clean water, set this trend in Italy. You found a fine old drinking fountain with which to illustrate your note and I wonder if people come and fill bottles here? We saw how locals filled their bottles in many places we visited.

    An attractive shot which benefits from warm light.

    I really appreciate the low POV that you used here Craig. I think getting down to the level of the 'tea-drinkers' shows a connection with your subjects. Both the men look directly into you lens... one seems very eager as he leans towards you! The woman averts her eyes which tells us something about the culture I think. To my mind the WA lens works perfectly well here and I see no trace of lack of sharpness.

    Nicely done, a super DL scene.

    Hello Christiane - This is an attractive coastline which still retains a wild look despite the development of what look like holiday apartments and homes. The colours all work harmoniously together, even the terracotta roofs echo the warm colours of some of the vegetation; I like that.

    A fine maritime composition where the contrasts of blues and oranges make a terrific display.

    Hello Malgo - I find that thoughts of war consumes many minutes of my days the the moment. I watch what's happening in the Middle East with a sense of despair and as the world remembers the 100 year anniversary of WW1 and the utter madness of it you post this. Your note and WS are another sombre reminder of the madness of mankind. It seems that past conflict teaches us, the supposed highest form of life, nothing at all.

    Would that we could all be as innocent as these small children who splash in the fountain totally unaware of the dark history of your location. Looking at the WS, I can identify the buildings in you shot and marvel at how well they have been restored. What a tragedy that those lost in war and those who suffer from its memories cannot be restored as neatly too.

    An excellent post.

    Hello Ghislaine - This is a fascinating shot. The lines of perspective provide stability to the composition which is filled with light, muted colour and dancing reflections. The back light has provided you with some excellent organic silhouettes and the lone figure gives context.

    Wonderful.

    Hello John -
    What a wonderful shot. The house is so beautiful and I like the way it appears over the tops of the trees which, I think, add to the sense of place. Good light brings out the colours in the building materials and give a warmth to the old stonework. A romantic, fairytale building and a classy, well managed shot.

    Hello Ike - The light here is perfect to show off the shimmering white reflections on the reflected blue sky. What appeals to me most is the colour palette. Nothing jars the harmony of blues, whites and greys. Splendid!

    This impressive sculpture fills the frame and packs a punch Brian. I like the detail and especially the softly reflected ambient light which adds form and volume to the piece. I shall have to do some research as I would like to learn more about the thoughts behind the work; it has a classical look and the title 'Sleeping Head' intrigues me.

    Fascinating!

    Got to say something about this fabulous shot too Les. The rocks are such a strong compositional element and I love the way you have used a slow SS to accentuate the contrasts between water and land. This is very nicely managed. I love this coastline.

    Hi Les - I have been a bit slack with TE this week ('flu) but I cannot let this one slip by. What a lovely shot and note. I like the central position of the tree; moss-covered and wizened it carries character and excellent detail. The rocks, ferns and single figure add the finishing details. Beautiful and evocative, I like this a lot.

    Hello Takero,

    After six days in Kanazawa, we are preparing to fly back to Washington, DC. We saw many beautiful people and places, traditional dancers and drummers, but not a scene as colorful as this boat. I will post some photos soon from Kanazawa.

    Hi Angshuman,

    I was just going through my old photo from Nepal. this image just take me back there. I know it is not really the same and I wish to one day have the chance to see this part of India. So many place to little time and money. This is fantastic with the clarity of the view and I can feel the thin air.
