    Hello Brian,

    What a great use of this building!
    The students must feel like stars!
    I think you were right to apply the b&w treatment which helps to emphasise the regularity of the geometric patterns.
    The arch, which contrasts geometrically with the building, makes a useful f/g element and a good separation line.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gerrit,

    If ever you wanted to see an idyllic spot, this must be high on the list. The thatched cottage makes a good focal point, especially with its bright red shutters.
    I love how you have anchored the f/g with the tree trunk, whilst the canal adds new textures and reflections.

    Is the sign in the garden a barge stop, acting like a bus stop?

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    You have chosen a really good spot from which to take this shot, so that the bridge creates an excellent lead and creates an equally good sense of perspective. The reflections suggest a whole new dimension!
    The f/g trees edge the frame and assist the sense of depth.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Kari,

    The colours really are magnificent. Not only are they superb on the trees but they are evident in the leaf carpet.
    I love the long expressive shadows, giving extra interest to the ground.

    I got few good autumnal photographs last year as strong winds and rain prevented this sort of scene occurring.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ourania,

    I wouldn't apologise too strongly about the composition for it works very well. The boat is resplendent in the autumn sunshine, angled nicely from the corner of the frame, leading into the scene. The colours and the details are very well captured.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Swapan,

    Interesting notes to accompany this fine photograph.
    I never ever considered elephants having stables but, as such trusty and useful servants, like horses, they would need to be cared for.
    You have placed the tree perfectly in the frame, on the thirds line, so that it creates a fine sense of depth to the b/g stables. The low light produces an excellent shadow.

    Such entertaining notes, John!
    How can such dull and boring notes be entertaining! Language has such idiosyncratic possibilities!
    Yes, not THE most interesting of subjects but the notes compensate for any lack of visual excitement.
    I am hoping that you will follow this with close-ups of the mugs and t shirts.
    Surely there will be a place called 'Drab', that will try to become connected!

    Thanks for the laugh,

    Hello Ann,

    The most striking aspect of your photograph is the wonderful composition. You have cropped the vehicle perfectly so that its features and its driver are text-book positioned in frame.

    Hello Jean,

    Castles have a great fascination and make such splendid subjects for photographers.
    I like how you have filled the frame with the castle but left enough surrounding details to give an imposing context.
    Excellent sharpness.
    The misty sea adds atmosphere and helps to promote the sense of depth.

    Kind regards,

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    The church has been rebuilt in quite a plain style, almost modern in its simplicity. The door looks very decorative by contrast.
    You have achieved excellent clarity and good light management in this well conceived composition.

    Hello Boa,

    Before I scrutinised the poster, I was struck by the super composition! Everything is very strongly placed. I just love how the lady's gaze gives the most subtle lead to the striking poster!
    I shot I have really enjoyed viewing.

    Hello Edward,

    This is a charming little chapel and one which boasts a porch unlike any I have seen before.
    The building is nicely set in the frame, with details that are pin sharp, set against a clear blue sky.

    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 :-)
