    Hi Miguel

    A good daily life scene from the local fish market with a perfect exposure on the white highlights of the ice. Nice repetition of the yellow price tags with the pink one breaking the pattern very well. The people add scale and context. Tfs!

    Hello Krzysztof,

    A lovely photograph!
    You had a beautiful day for this photograph, so the blue sky makes a fine backcloth against which the black and white of the church stands out very well. It is crisp and detailed.
    You have used a nicely angled approach.
    The trees add a natural frame, whilst the red roofed houses help to promote a sense of depth.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Brenda,

    I'm glad you explained the building differences in your notes, for I thought it was a combination of two shots. Even the graffiti abides by the change in bricks! It does make an interesting photograph because of these changes.
    I'm one of those people who doesn't agree with the defacement of buildings by graffiti. I have seen lovely historical buildings spoiled by people just writing their names in different styles. However, I can see a point in dedicating walls to this art form so that all have a chance to express themselves.
    A now famous graffiti artist, in England, called Banksy, is revered and his works command extremely high prices.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Piotr,

    It is a beautiful location and appears quite isolated. The rocky surround and scree slopes remind me so much of the tarns in the Lake District.
    I can understand why it is called the Green Pond.
    Although the figure is not posing, his presence adds a focal point and a sense of scale.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for this in depth set of notes. You have convinced me that, despite the impression of mountainous climbing, shown by your photograph, the climbing would be within my capabilities!
    The gorge is utterly breath-taking! You have really captured its steep precipitous nature. The subtle changes of light give a sense of depth, too, both horizontally and vertically.
    The inclusion of the walkers certainly reveals the scale!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Robert,

    This is a stunning close-up of the caterpillar! Its body details are pin sharp and displaying vibrant colours. I just love how it is travelling upside down on a diagonal across the frame!
    This is an exceptionally fine example of shallow dof.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Jason,

    Oh! I just have a feeling that I will be singing 'Lady in Red' all day. It has a wonderfully attractive melody just as this lady makes a wonderfully attractive shot. I am surprised that she hasn't noticed your presence and photographic intention!

    If you had wanted to set up a photo-shoot, you would have been hard pressed to compose it any better, unless, of course you wanted her aware of the camera! The colour contrasts, the lighting, the abundance of textures, the leads, the sense of perspective are all there, around this sharp and eye-catching focal lady!

    Ha! Ha! The next iconic tourist attraction!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    I have taken photographs of this huge wheel but from quite a different angle. It was something I had not expected to see on Liverpool's docks!
    I really like how you have sandwiched it between the red brick buildings, prefaced by the Mersey. It is possible to read Echo through its spokes, making a nice guide to the contrasting buildings.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Merhaba Mesut,

    I love the idea of a bicycle being chained up, high in the air, for security reasons! It would take a skilled mountain climber with bolt clippers to steal that!
    The light is lovely, bringing out the warm colours and textures of the stones, and casting delicate shadows across the whole.

    There are lots of bicycles, fastened to unusual places, all over North Yorkshire, in England. They are painted yellow and were placed to mark the auspicious route of the Tour de France, which began in England this year!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jose, Interesting church, it doesn't look very much as Orthodox church (the crosses are like in catholic) and also the colours are not like typical Greek. Nice picture and good including the elederly women going there.

    Hello Daniel,

    Your photos from Iceland are fantastic and for me more inviting than old wrecks shown by Craig. marvelous wild landscape and this blue river. it really looks very windy.
    But what it is this thin blue line under the sky?
