    Hello Ike,

    After reading your notes, I realise how difficult it must be to get such a shot!
    This is a very clear shot of the aeroplane, standing out extremely well against the blue sky and perfectly composed, on a diagonal, across the frame.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    Though we have seen many shots of the Eiffel Tower, it is always possible for a new angle. I love how you have made the fountains celebrate the grandeur of the tower! It is a great idea! The tall verticals seem to be linking to one another rather than vying for attention. A fine viewpoint and a well executed shot.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    GHello Serghei,

    I love this!
    It is so strong!
    There is no way that a viewer could look at this and not see right into the b/g. A great example of strong lead lines and perspective.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rosemary,

    Oh, I feel envious that you can have such interaction with these beautiful, wild animals. Such wonderful examples of family support!
    Your photograph captures their form, their movement and their togetherness. The dust cloud helps to give that sense of movement.
    I could look at this all day.
    It makes me grieve to think that people could kill them for so little!

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    A very different shot for you, which relies on man-made structures rather than Nature, but it is no less effective because of that. You have contrasted the shapes and the textures and used a most effective archway, for further contrast and a sense of depth. As always, a fine sense of composition.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gerrit,

    It is a most unusual experience.
    When you see the almost 1950's atmosphere, here, it makes you very aware of how advertising has grown and ballooned to such an extent in the modern world.
    A beautifully angled shot, clear, and crisp for what could have been a difficult shot.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    It is surprising that this man is working so openly at his graffiti.
    Perhaps the law is not so strict in Australia.
    I know here, they can be prosecuted and I read that in Germany they were thinking of using drones to catch the perpetrators.

    The ethics aside, this is a very well composed shot, where the curb creates a nicely angled lead line to the focal artist and his creations. The images are sharp and the colours bright, despite what seems like a lack of good sunlight.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Denis,

    The play of light has had a great effect, emphasising the two sides of the valley and illuminating the greens with a wonderful vibrancy.
    You have composed it well for balance and depth.

    Have a good day,

    Hello Izabela,

    This is like a vibrant fabric, full of co-ordinated, swirling colours.
    What an attractive summer dress it would make!
    Well seen and nicely cropped to get the desired effect.

    Hello Gert,

    We had a lovely Nigerian lady, who came to school to teach the children African music and dance; she was dressed just like the lady in grey.
    It is a beautiful photograph, so full of interesting details of the people, their dress and their way of life. It is well composed with a sense of depth across the frame and the colours are good.
    I, like the lady in your photograph, would love to select one of those shiny pots!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Ally,

    I found your notes, accompanying this photograph, very interesting.
    I just love how the mangrove appears to be standing on tiptoe.
    You have given us a good impression of the location but I wonder how you would feel about altering the position of the focal plant. I have done a little w/s, where I have cropped the scene, so that the main plant is off centre and appears to be linking with its environment.
    I hope you like it.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    I would never have believed that washing could be classed as art but here, the lines of washing are the colours and the threads that lead us across the domestic b/g and bring the whole scene to life.
    Well seen and recorded.

    Have a good day,

    Hello Jorge,

    Before I read your notes, I had already recognised how these huge, eroded pinnacles resembled people. Isn't it remarkable that this has happened quite naturally!
    I love how the light has picked them out, revealing their relief, and how you have ensured that they are sharp against a vast b/g.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Ourania,

    Sometimes an unexpected opportunity arises that cannot be missed. This was just such a time.
    The men give life to your photograph which was already benefitting from a good composition. The raised feet are so important, to add a sense of movement, as we follow them into the scene.

    The use of b&w was a good idea as it emphasises the sense of cold, which can be difficult in Greece, a place we associate with aqua seas and warm sunshine.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)
