    Hello Mariusz

    You're my next-door neighbour today! And yes, I thought I was looking at a photograph of penguins at first. Last year I spent some time on Lindisfarne, and could see the Farne Islands in the distance, but never made it that far. But I have photographed puffins in the Scilly Islands...

    Hello Nicole

    I was standing on the same bridge just two weeks ago! We had sailed into the Venetian lagoon, and amazingly found a free mooring for the night just at the end of this very canal. It looks as though in April, Burano isn't too busy. In June it was certainly buzzing during the day, but we were living on the boat, and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the place was in the evening when all the tourists had gone back to Venice and their cruise liners... Nice work.

    Regards

    Hello Derek

    Drama here in bucketloads. Your note about the gale, and the waves makes me wonder if your camera survived the ordeal. I know you did, as you've posted this! I love the faint suggestions of green in the waves. Brave shot!

    Hello Craig

    I love 'em both! Very sad note here, but a great photograph. It's got to be the distressed blues on the wall that make it work so well. Nicely seen. What's this about your coming to the UK?

    Hello Silvio

    Without the mother and son, placed cunning near the thirds position, this wouldn't be half the shot it is. Although the flowers themselves are indeed beautiful, the inclusion of the figures is the vital element in the composition. Good work.

    Hello Gyorgy

    Reflections always make for intriguing images, and this photograph certainly proves that. On second thoughts, I'm probably wrong, as no-one else had seen it! Why are TE punters generally so blinkered??

    Hello Burak

    A backstreet in Athens, but nobody's to be seen! Perhaps they're all indoors watching television about the Euro-crisis. I'm sure we're all worried for them. Your photograph is a nice piece of street observation: without the graffiti it would not be so interesting!

    Hello Cristina

    Nice bit of street observation. The graffiti make the shot, but don't interest the two boys playing. I can't make out what they're doing: is it a ball game? I can't see a ball. Your title is presumably a reference to the song by Bill Withers (I had to look that up!)

    This is certainly a dramatic silhouette! I like the river giving us a slashing diagonal across the frame and the well-defined clouds. Sometimes it pays to expose for the sky!

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Red and green! A potent and contrasty combination. I'm intrigued by the covered faces. Are they Hindus, or as they're near the Pakistan border, maybe Muslim (which would explain it)? Or is it to ward off flies perhaps? Anyway, another excellent documentary photograph.

    Hello Renzo

    Drama in bucketloads here! Can't for the life of me understand why it's attracted so little notice. I'd have thought it was just the sort of shot that would go down well with TE punters! You've obviously "worked" on the sky (and I assume on the reflections too), but it's done with taste, and enhances the image. Beautiful work.

    Famous town, so I'm mildly surprised that you managed to find this lovely street completely empty. I enjoy the framing and composition and the naturally-rendered colours.

    I like the simple minimalism of your framing. I hope it's only used by cats these days: that broken rung could make it a death-trap for humans! It also makes the photograph...

    Hello Steve

    What a charming scene! Your viewpoint is excellent, though maybe the modern plastic boats don't really complement the traditional view beyond. But it looks a wonderful place. I've never been to Sicily, and have heard it's eye-wateringly expensive. Any truth in this??

    Hello Claude

    I know you walk a lot and have posted many photographs taken on your travels on foot. Nevertheless, this is a long way from what I've come to accept as your "house style". It is of course stunningly beautiful, and very well composed. I like the cloud masking the far valley and of course the wild flowers in the foreground. It reminds me very much of the Étang de Lers in Ariège. I may have been tempted to remove the jet-trail in the sky...

    Hello Luciano

    Can't say I'm a fan of HDR: at least not when the technique is obvious! A shame, as everything else about the shot works: composition, quirky items for sale, beautiful architecture, and so on. For me, a "documentary"-style shot like this doesn't really lend itself to radical post-processing. But that's just me...

    Hello Benny

    I like your viewpoint which creates a balanced, near symmetrical composition. Colours and exposure good too (natural-looking, and maybe 1/2 stop less exposure than "normal"). I guess your title is a deliberate reference to the novel by Virginia Woolf. I remember teaching that text to A-level groups many years ago!

    Hello Gert

    Your title is certainly apposite: beautiful this place really is! And sadly I've never heard of it, probably because I've never been to Slovakia. Your images make me think I should change that. I love the inclusion of the school party, fronted by their teacher: it adds a level of brightness and life that would be otherwise missing.

    Sometimes it just works! Camera shake (1/3 sec shutter speed) here is so pronounced it's a positive feature of the grab shot. And your crop also emphasizes the feeling of falling: like Alice down the rabbit-hole!
