    Hello Craig,

    This is an extraordinarily beautiful shot, with the red houses snuggling warmly between the blackness of the sea and the looming might of the snow-tinged rocky mountains. I cannot see how the composition could be improved, the scene flows so naturally from corner to corner.

    Your w/s confirms the tale in your notes, about rapidly changing weather conditions. It a bit like that in my home village, at the moment, being a change between spitting, gently raining, raining hard or torrential downpours - should I wear shoes, wellingtons or waders!!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Maria,

    This is the sort of photograph that I love and wish I had taken! You have created a fine cohesiveness with your composition, everything seems so beautifully connected between the reality and the extraordinary reflections.

    I'm glad I didn't notice the trash for that would have spoilt the beauty of the moment.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Boa,

    The use of b&w was a good decision, it makes us (the viewers) concentrate on the focal subject and appreciate the skilfulness of the composition, for it is very well composed.
    As is the case with many of your shots, a scenario is suggested.

    Have a lovely day,

    Oh, Chris, this is such a beautiful spot!
    The red roofs make a warm, eye-catching focal point in the middle of an inviting blue sea! You have created a fine, natural lead, via the curve of the beach, where the parasols, towels and bathers add zest and colour to the scene.

    I can see the similarity to Mont St-Michel but what a pity that this is closed to the general public!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Delphine,

    The steep sided hills, with rocky outcrops make an attractive scene, with a natural lead down the valley. The two figures animate it and their placement adds great strength to the composition.

    An excellent blue hour photograph, where the national colours, created by the artificial lighting, stand out very clearly against the N.Y. sky. It must have been a stunning spectacle, especially on such a prominent building!

    Hello Lars,

    It seems to have similarities with New York in more ways than one, for it is possible to take photos of N.Y from islands in the seaway!
    I love how you have been able to give us an opening into the harbour, where the inclusion of ships really gives a scale to these skyscrapers. It's a fine exposure, with colours that seem to mimic the coolness of the sea.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    Did you feel the hairs on your neck stand up when you were viewing this room, this scene? Sometimes, special places, places that affected history, have that effect!
    The very formal arrangement of the chairs, surrounding the light reflective table, lead quite irresistibly to the painting and to the flag, inseparable in this context.
    It is a pity that the light is reflecting on the painting for I would really like to study their faces. Of course, as a painting, it has the painter's opinions of the people more ingrained than a photograph would have.

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Maciej,

    You arrived just at the right moment, before the lamps in the window and the orange tracery, were completely covered.
    I'm not surprised that you were inspired to photograph this for the colours and the ornamental decorations are delightful.
    Your photograph is very well sharply exposed, nicely composed, and with strong, pleasing colours.

    Hello Daniel,

    You have made my mouth water with such descriptive notes! Tapas is a relatively recent addition to our choice of foods, well maybe that's because I live in a small village! But, I do enjoy the variety, especially when I go to Manchester!

    This is a lovely composition. The pattern of the cobbles makes a strong f/g triangle, whilst the tree is strongly placed and helps to create a good sense of depth. The fishes are interesting details and the birds animate a quiet scene.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Francesco,

    The light could not have been better for this photograph. It is almost as if the sun has shone particularly on the church, like a spotlight.
    The clarity is beautiful, the tall tower standing out extremely clearly against the cloudy sky and creating a good sense of depth to the shadowy hills.
    Malgo is right, this does look quite different from normal Italian churches, well certainly those that I have seen.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gert,

    This is such an interesting photograph!
    I immediately imagined that this cobbled piazza would be a pedestrianized so was surprised to see cars in situ!
    It is a lovely space, surrounded by elegant, tall buildings which enclose the area, keeping attention firmly on the action within. There is a suggested, diagonal link, which works well, between the spouting fountain and the Holy Trinity column, and between them, an eclectic mix of people. What a great place for people watching ... an interesting occupation when on holiday!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    HELLO ike,

    I suspect, from the tight crop, that this tangoed car was closely parked on the street. They are so distinctive, so very much of their time, that they hold a special place in our hearts!. (My son used to compare them to a hump-backed bridge and I suppose you can see the similarity!)
    The headmistress, at the school where I worked, had one just like this, except it was bright red. It was brand new and I really envied her car!
    Enough about me!
    This is a fine capture, sharply exposed and with details that reveal its very shiny surfaces.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    This is quite a view across the province of Cadiz.
    The movement from sharpness to gentle blurring, creates a fine sense of depth.
    There are so many details to absorb, from the earthy patterns, in the f/g, to the formal design of the church, to the quite modern bridge across the river, to the patchwork patterns of the fields.
    It is certainly a place to rest, with a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful view.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Christiane,

    This is a region of France that I have not visited and it surprised me because it doesn't look like my impressions of France. But, it is a lovely surprise, for this photograph shows eye-catching, natural sculptures, the sort of scene mostly linked with America.
    You have used a natural lead line, with a subtle curve, to add just a little mystery to this lovely view of Languedoc. Photographs, predominantly blue and green, give a very pleasing atmosphere of the countryside.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
