    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This is a very pleasing shot.
    The goats, gathered into this tight group, look like a many headed animal.
    But, I would love to see a scene , like this and capture it as well as this!
    The colours and the sharpness are excellent.

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Ike,

    This reminds me of the typical style of a doll's house, when I was a child, a symmetrical frontage and warm pebbledash surface. It looks so welcoming! Pity they didn't have a tea shop, too!

    You have captured it sharply giving details which suggests it is situated in a shallow walled area.

    The path is a good lead line and creates a fine sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Craig,

    I don't think there is any problem with the focus. Sometimes you just have to shoot or miss the opportunity!
    The guys were not against you photographing them but I'm not sure how happy they were either! There's no welcoming smile and they guy in green has quite an aggressive stance. But, they are colourful figures and seem like characters from an Indian 'West Side Story'
    The blue wall and arch make a very attractive backdrop.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mariusz,

    Warkworth is a lovely, well maintained castle. When we were last there, a Medieval Festival was underway and proved to be most interesting and informative. We learned all about archery as well as how to make leather shoes and how to make candles!

    The wall makes a strong, textured lead towards the strong keep and there is evidence of where the original walls stood, inviting us to explore the l/h side of the composition. I don't think I could have photographed from this angle because of all the tents that were in position.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    I suspect that the yellow blossom is gorse, which is a wild plant and this compares sweetly with the white blossom on the tall, fruit tree. There are also some colourful spring flowers in a neatly organised plot. These are all welcome signs of spring, nicely placed in your photograph.

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour Serge,

    I like the fact that you have a sturdy, immovable, reticulated frame into which the building has been reflected. It makes an unusual composition, an impressionistic picture on a regular frame! It's very attractive!

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    Mi piace come stato incluso l'albero nel f / g
    Si fa un elemento verticale multa collega i due verticali ad angolo ben giudicato.
    Tra cui tetti non solo aggiunge interesse, ma anche, sottolineano le altezze delle tre caratteristiche principali.

    Buona giornata,

    Hello Malgo,

    Well done for overcoming your fears but this bridge was a a strong attraction for you!

    It is a splendid bridge, like no other that I have witnessed.
    Just imagine being suspended; I bet it's a smooth ride!
    The view is amazing, too!
    It's a whole vista!

    You must advertise the Beta site as this looks so much better there!

    Have a good day,

    Bonjour Denis,

    These bright and colourful boats, from your low viewpoint. appear to be on the march, heading towards the camera like a determined army! There are no other images, no distractions, which gives the boat images great strength!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    Interesting notes accompany your photograph and add understanding to the image.

    The portrait is very well exposed.
    The rich colours and details give character to this very impressive face whilst the headscarf and colourful clothing frame its weatherbeaten nature.
    I like your use of shallow dof so that there are no distractions from this proud and determined face.

    Hello Ike,

    Who would believe this is in the centre of a capital city!
    It looks like a great park!
    The buildings in the b/g have the impression of old, substantial houses that have been improved and modernised.
    In many cases, if alterations happen at the back of a house and do not impact on the visual amenity, they will be allowed!
    Love the tinges of autumn visible on the ivy-covered house.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    It looks a thrilling ride, to see this view without the speed of an aeroplane must be awesome!
    What it has done, is give you a view of the land that has taken on the mantle of pattern.
    The road becomes the separation line between the intense colours of the balloon and the more drab squares of habitations.

    Hello Jorge,

    This is lovely!
    We can now see close-ups of the buildings, rising like ornate steps up the slope of the hill.
    The tall clock tower is strongly positioned and links diagonally with the other outstanding feature, the amber house.
    A well exposed and well composed photograph.

    Hello Lars,

    The buildings are very classical in style and have significant differences to make them worthy of close observation but for me, it was the fine composition of your photograph that attracted me first. I love how you have created this strong f/g triangle, making such an impact to the scene.
    The buildings flow so naturally from f/g tot b/g.
    Lovely!

    Hello Stephen,

    Gosh, this is lovely and so different from the urban scenes that you have been posting.
    There is a wonderful mix of green and umbra hues, painting a scene of wild beauty.
    I like how the light and shadows suggest the valley in the m/g.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The fish-eye has produced an image where we feel to be taking a circular tour of the building, which possesses a pleasing shape and attractive character, considering it has been abandoned. In the U'K. I have feeling it would have been bought and renovated as older properties are in high demand.
    Fine clarity and lovely, well saturated colours.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Paul,

    You have photographed the mill on a day when the mill lodge was providing the perfect mirror for reflections. I like how you have slightly off-set the mill and your use of b&w, which adds an aged character to the scene.

    Did you see the dippers?

    Hello JC,

    This is almost a part of your theme of 'Peaceful Atmosphere' for a Sunday walk in such a beautiful place, is surely peaceful.
    It is almost like turning back the clock, for when I as a child, Sundays were almost always spent walking in the areas countryside.

    I like how you have used the path as guide, where is leads us first to the focal figures and then carries on to introduce the beauty of the scenery.
    It's bright and clear.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Luis,

    This was a great time to capture the details of Copenhagen.
    The buildings are just becoming silhouetted, yet have enough detail to give them depth, and they look amazing set against that sky, with its ripples of grey clouds, accentuated by flashes of red and orange ... like an electrical storm!
    I like how the clock face has picked up the illumination and stands out as a strong, focal point.

    My warm regards,
