    Hola Angel,
    this view is comprehensive, beautiful and interesting. You composed your photo superbly, the diagonals of the river and the bridge offer dynamism and the layers you have created within the frame are very well balanced. There are fine details both on the towns and the natural scenery, the light and the colours are marvelous.
    Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Denis,
    a very elegant simple composition, perfectly balanced and with great depth. In it you captured so many effects of autumn and it's very delightful to watch them all occurring simultaneously. Dark, bright, warm and cold colours make the scene so rewarding, you balanced them all effectively and your presentation is wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Klaudio,
    it's a very delightful scene indeed, it's tender and fun and makes you feel good. Your settings were great and you rendered the scene even more vivid and appealing with the fine textures and the intricate play of light and shadow you captured. It's like the light and the shifting shadows are part of their play too. There's spontaneity, timelessness and human interest that engages the viewer. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Swapan,
    this monument is very elegant and impressive and the clarity of your picture allows us to appreciate its details. I like how your tight composition is adjusted to the symmetry of the architecture and how the blue sky and the shadows set off the colours of the façade. You used the strong light very aptly and the contrast is wonderful too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Chris,
    the boats you found in this little harbour are lovely, they have fine, unusual colours which are brightened by the sunshine and stand out against the dark blue water delightfully. A fine, relaxing scenery with great depth. I like very much that you rendered the warm tones so discreet and that you captured the young people walking on the jetty. Their presence immediately evokes holidays. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Gildas,
    I'm sorry that this place will be out of service and hope that it will be considered heritage and preserved and protected. The structures are in good condition and the water looks clean. I like very much the warm light and the golden tints it has created. The blue tones are wonderful and the atmosphere melancholic but appealing. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Craig,
    I like this image very much, not only the landscape but also the monochrome seems to have depth, as if the image we see was produced by overlapping layers of grey tones. There's fine texture and the shadows suggest movement and are justified by the shape of the dunes and the clouds. The footprints are mesmerizing, I like how the lead us across the mysterious scenery. The foreground reminds me of birds flying in the sky. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Omid,
    A nice view of the land here, you capture a very nice sense of depth as we look once again to the beautiful mountains in the distance. Fine golden colors and the shadows in the foreground is great too.

    One thing you might like to consider in shots like this is placing either the line of sky or the line of the corn on upper or lower thirds. It doesn't always work, but it's a nice way to play around with composition and sometimes can make a nice shot too.
    Best wishes

    Hi Kasia,
    I wonder if you have a way to share this photo with the family, I would say they would treasure it as its such a pleasant portrait of this happy little person that surely body could look at this without smiling. I am really enjoying your photos and notes from Iraq, it's wonderful to see your perspective in comparison to the stuff I see on the news here in Europe. Thanks again for sharing your work.

    Hi Brenda,
    You really are the queen of reflections, this is brilliant. The scene behind with the tshirts is good, and shows a nice additional element to the enthusiasm of the figure, perhaps she lose it so much that's why she skip like this. But it's the reflection in the glasses that make it for me. I have to say, I actually prefer the workshop picture, buts that's just purely because I like that reflection so much. Thanks as always for sharing s unique view on the world.

    Hi Brian,
    This is a fascinating ruin, I saw a tv show years ago about this place and thought how cool it could be to photograph, you show that yes indeed it is. The building is old and unloved but the angle you chose here still gives a brilliant sense of pride as it reaches way up into the sky. The way the white clouds fill the upper frame too also makes it seem like it is reaching miles, into another level of the atmosphere.
    Cheers

    Hi Brian,
    Nce way to present the landmark. As usual with your trademark magical color and sharpness. Even though tower bridge is the centrepiece here. St Pauls presents a magical point above the horizon, and the post office tower looks like its actually upset it's not in the picture, like a bold child jumping up in a photo when it's been told that it's not allowed. I do love that building but for some reason,it has a strange sadness to it in this, no idea why. The light in the sky between the clouds looks like its trying to illuminate the bridge.
    Nice one as always.
    Cheers
    Noel

    Hi Petar,
    Surprised to hear its an old industrial building, it looks like a nice urban home that has gotten lost in the country. It's a kind of sad picture too, the building looks very forlorn and your choicest black and white really enhances that feeling.i really like the off centre composition.
