    Hello Ray,
    I don't think I had seen this fascinating rock formation before and I appreciate your b&w picture very much. The rocks look like majestic, venerable figures at a very serious gathering. The monochrome exalts the mysterious figures and the scene is quite intense. I like the textures and the way tangible light and shadows shape up the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
    Ourania

    PS I hope you'll decide to sail the Aegean one day!

    Hello Murat,
    this is a wonderful portrait of a lovely lady posing but with a smile that feels spontaneous and sincere. You establisged excellent contact that is passed on to the viewer. The rich colours are superb and the definition of all the details has a special, graphic, appealing intensity. I think I would have cropped just below the white border, to give more emphasis to the lady and the detailed backdrop right behind her. Great work, congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Lisa,
    I love this bright and liquid blue colour that fills the entire frame, my first thought, before reading your note, was that it felt so refreshing and relaxing:) So many fish swimming vigorously away from danger make the scene so vibrant. I like the endlessly repeated pattern and the glimpse of the surface from beneath. The workshop picture is awesome! Congratulations and thank you for living this experience and sharing it with us in such a lovely way!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Ricardo,
    I saw this magnificent church the other day in a picture of Lucas', it's very interesting to see the wider context where it stands and from a famous poet's window too. Your composition is superb and you managed depth and lighting so well that we are able to explore the clear view in a thorough and pleasing way. Perspective, framing and colours are marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Maciej,
    you seem to have found the most adequate exposure to present this fine scenery in the last minutes of the blue hour. You achieved wonderful, rich colours, superb details, very appealing depth. Your composition is well considered and makes the scenery enjoyable and inviting. The brightness of the lights and the people's movement have been dealth with very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    you captured both the movement and the expression in a superb way, the human interest is great, the traditional practice is well displayed and there's an attractive graphic quality too. The dark colours set off the bright ones very effectively. This fleeting moment seems to have depth. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Christian,
    I like very much the sharp and clear way in which you are presenting this antique stone bridge. It's an interesting structure and gives fine reflections. I think that the lovely scene has been cropped a little too abruptly on the right side. The shady foreground sets off the marvellous textures and colours in the sunny view. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Didi,
    this stone bridge is very impressive, you are presenting it in an amazing way. A clear, well lit and very appealing view, where we can estimate the width of the river and the length of the bridge. It's interesting to observe the diverse arches, the fine texture of the water and the landscape. You did a great work putting together four pictures in a panoramic format. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Chris,
    there's a cheerful Greek song with exactly the same title:) Your picture shows a gorgeous aspect of summer in the Aegean, the Turkish coast has the same beautiful colours in the sea and the landscape and it's great to have the opportunity to enjoy them -as well as many other things- in the way we see in your picture. I like very much your bold and effective light management, all the colours are brilliant. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    it's been a while since you last posted a portrait on TE and it's great to see another vivid presentation of an interesting person. I like the natural colours and textures, the glint in his eyes and his serious expression hiding a smile. You got a good contact and an intense, straightforward glance. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Karolina,
    I like this picture very much, it's wonderfully composed with the perspective leading us to the lady and back, the frame filled with interest and the lady placed against the brightest part of the background. I also like the silvery tint of the monochrome, the texture of the paved road and the lady's soft shadow. Congratulations and thank you!

    Better than Blue Hour, we have Red Hour. The building and parts of the pinkish sky, match perfectly the flowers in the foreground. Excellent textures, sharpness and composition.

    Wow, this is just wonderful. I love these types of subject, nothing gets near them for me. Nothing manmade that is. I love the rich golden tones, the clarity and the note. Any idea how old these babies are? Absolutely fascinating, thanks for sharing.

    Warmest wishes to you and yours

    PS; Thanks for your well-wishes for the family. Mum and Dad are ok, but just getting old. As Dad says, "I'm ok, but I'm not beautiful any more". Typical Italian hehehehe.

    Lit a candle for you and your lady love today. I think of you both often.

    Again the colours are incandescent and the way you managed the light is truly impressive. The castle looks quite tiny by European standards, but it is no less beautiful. The yellow and deep green colours are a feast for the eyes.

    Thank you so much for the present! What a beauty it is too, one that even Charles Darwin I'm sure would be enchanted with. The panorama is perfect for demonstrating the sheer size of the Valley and of course how unspoilt it is. Fingers crossed, it remains so. At the moment, there are companies wanting the frack national forest nearby for Coal Seam Gas. It makes me so angry I could cry.

    Warmest wishes and thanks for the photie.

    Ahhh now you're just showing off! This is magnificent, how did you get these magnificent birds to pose like this for you? Don't tell me you've turned your hand to kite-whispering now? A superb and natural dance of nature, impressive shutter control (had to be careful how I typed that) and wonderful vivid colour. An image that would knock the socks off the stuffed shirts in the camera club.
