    Hello Stephen,
    both the view and your composition are very interesting, you have given us a very vivid impression of this place, bathed in the strong midday light. I like very much the perspective that leads to the horizon, at the right hand side of the frame, and how the composition is enriched and balanced by the waterfront buildings and the colourful canoes in opposite corners. The colours are delightful and vivid all over. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello John,
    this scenery is lovely indeed, I like very much how its colours and details are laid out at the lower third of the frame and against a harmonious pastel backdrop. The boat has been captured with perfect timing and directs us into the narrow but very deep setting. Your work with colours and contrasts is wonderful, a trip in this area must be very enjoyable. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    this scene is beautiful, you managed to capture and encompass in your square frame all the qualities and charm of the light and the scenery. A superb use of the road to lead the viewer into the scenery, the cyclists are well placed and remarkably well defined. I like very much the graduation that accentuates the depth of this view, the sweet morning light and the harmonious colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello dear Ali,
    a spontaneous capture from the market place that has kept all the naturalness of the scene. Your point of view at the same level with your subject is very effective and interesting, we get a good grasp of the gentleman's workplace and job. It's great how you made him stand out amid a large amount of details, while the light is strong and his face is shaded. You've done a remarkable work with depth and lighting, there's fine clarity and the colours are agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Gert,
    this is a strong portrait, the rich, contrasting colours make it immediately attractive and then the little girl's expression and personality inevitably take over. I like very much the directness conveyed by the tilt of her head and the steadiness of her gaze. The shadows seem to enrich the portrait with graphism and mystery. Her expression could have so many interpretations and still keep us wondering. I believe this is a timeless quality. Congratulations and thank you! I hope your internet connection is ok now and that if it isn't, that's fine too:)
    All the best, have a great evening,

    I love the richness of the colours here Ann. They are so wonderfully captured and remind me of dark velvety chocolate. The details are quite sublime with the sheen on the metal surfaces punctuated by the rivets. Your note is very good and makes me hanker after visiting the museum.

    Smashing!

    Hello Trevor,
    I do like the pano format and the blue tones that give the picture such a serene atmosphere,something to do with the weather I guess.
    It`s an attractive and well composed shot,lovely.

    Hello Trevor - The misty fall of rain is very well captured in this shot and adds such atmosphere to the image. The small tree-studded island looks wild and unspoilt in its isolation.

    I do like the panoramic framing here, it's creative and well balanced.

    Hello Burak - In temperatures of 40C we long for cooler weather but I am sure people who live for months at a time in conditions like this would swap places with you for some sunshine!

    I like the mood that this shot conveys. Dull winter days where the sun hardly gets above the horizon and the land sleeps under a grey sky. The sweep of the icy river is elegant and fixes a fine structure for the nicely captured details. Brrr.... the shot makes me feel cold!

    Hello Klaudio - Your title did catch my attention and while I don't think fog has a sound per se, it does seem to muffle sounds in much the same way as it 'muffles' or diffuses light. As to the word itself... yes, it does sound a little harsh; mist or miasma may be softer sounding.

    Anyway... enough of that. Your shot is atmospheric. What I like most is the one white cow, she adds a lovely bright, contrasting FP.

    Hello Indrasish - I think that many of the world's problems stem from colonists who split land up without thought. Borders were draw to suit the politics of the day and people groups were split asunder without having a say in what was happening around them. This shot, especially when viewed on the beta version, is amazing. So full of detail, it is an excellent TE upload. Informative and in a well chosen B&W presentation.

    Hello Romana - The chair sets this shot apart from the usual seaside compositions. How strangely surreal to see it standing alone on the rocks and I can imagine it bobbing about on the incoming tide and perhaps being washed to the distant shore! Good light and lovely colours.... I'd love to take a seat here today!
