    Hi Silvio,

    The village is sending my eyes toward the mountain which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the houses. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

    Beautiful view of the lighhouse with the sea and mountains on the background, and the special detail of the waves breaking on the rock, making a very nice composition. Congratulations!

    Hello Malgo,
    all three of your pictures are very interesting, I particularly like the main post because it features a strong connection between the pilgrims and the monument in the background, the scene looks dynamic and suggestive. I also like how the dull sky makes the colours and textures stand out even more. It's great that some of the ladies are facing the direction of your lens. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello John,
    the "statue's" posture and dress fit in the frame superbly, she looks 3D and the darker tones of the shadows and the surroundings seem to embrace her gently. The colours you achieved are lovely, there's a fine graduation that gives to the scene great quality and atmosphere. I also like her faint smile which seems to express her response to a real or an imaginary situation, her profile is excellently placed and framed. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Jean,
    you chose a great perspective for your composition, the rocking horse looks so dynamic, as it should, it fills the foreground and its details and textures are superb. I also like the colours of the lovely context. A blurry background would have made the horse stand out even more but the view around it is enjoyable too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour cher Philippe,
    the low evening light falls on the setting very gently, the old farm looks mysterious and the whole scenery very quiet. I like the elaborate red gate in the foreground and the excellent clarity beyond it too. There are fine details and textures and, despite the closed gate, the entrance looks inviting. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Alexandre,
    the symmetrical composition and the perspectives you chose give an attractive dynamism to the scene and the flying flag enhances this impression. I like the rich colours and the strong contrasts, they give a graphic aspect and great impact to the theme. The packed urban scenery framed by the arch is intriguing. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Lars,
    the white facade is so eye-catching and you have placed it wonderfully as principal focal point. It consolidates the description and makes the scene bright and vivid. I like how you placed the curve and got much interest both above and below it. Clarity and colours are amazing, so well-defined and neat throughout the scene. Congratulations and thank you!

    Kalispera Ourania,
    The more modern version of the game shown and those are playing, is the Japanese "Seduko".
    Everyone was playing this one though.
    Nice capture when all three young guys were in "action", each wearing the same traditional costume.
    My best regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    your picture is enchanting and offers us a poetic glimpse into the daily life of the village. The sheen and the patterns of the cobbled stones make the road so attractive, its definition is very bold and all the other elements complement the scene gently. I like the tranquil and mysterious atmosphere you achieved in this antique setting that has been hosting scenes like this for so long. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Danos

    I can hardly wait until I arrive in Crete in mid July after the endless deserts of nth east Africa and the Middle East. When there are beaches they are fenced off from public access and views restricted by copses of trees & high fences. Unlike here :-) Tfs!

    Hello Rob,
    I like this picture very much and admire the way you noticed the scene and composed it for a fascinating graphic photo. It looks simple but is full of surprises, the play of shapes, reflections and shadows is intriguing and enjoyable. You achieved great balance in lighting and the words under the windows make us even more curious regarding the interior. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    I'm glad you managed to capture the scene, the elder lady has a nice smile and she is very well placed. She makes the whole scene significant and I like how the light enhances her presence too. I wonder what the mysterious urban background could mean to the ladies, if they ever notice its details and changes. Light, colours and shadows are great. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Luciano,
    sono molto contenta che hai incluso nella tua serie di foto di Napoli una vista del sotterreno affascinante. Un vero museo cosi comprensivo ed intrigante, un viaggio in tempo a pocchi metri sotto la vivacissima citta'. Mi piace molto la tua composizione, il fascino ed il mistero che evoca, la figura allo sfondo e' un' addizione superba. Hai fatto un ottimo lavoro su illuminazione, chiarezza e profondita'. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,
    Ourania
