    Hi Trevor

    The long landscape size is well adapted to this scenery and the coming rain gives a grey hues to the bacground. The small island seems to prepare to withstand the storm, its pine trees looking as lightning rods.
    nice soft colors.

    Hi Andrea

    you seem to master well the photography and know what to do to get what you have in your mind. We don't feel it's an HDR shot (congratulations!) and you get mainly 2 colors: a bursting orange well lighted by the overall grey hues, except the white roofs reflections.
    The movement of the wheel contrasts well also with the houses.
    hats off!

    Hello my neighbour John!

    That's not street photography, but you still have a human presence.
    Nicely spotted, pin sharp, with the orange bursting out of the grey sky, and the women dressed in black hooking on their mast. Though the exposure time is 1/2500s, the propeller of the higher plane is blurred, so giving the sense of motion yet given by the white smoke! But where is the plane N°1?
    Cheers

    Hi Korkut

    I missed it, I should not take holidays! As always a B&W image with a human presence, and here taken at the right moment, enhanced by the many converging shadows of her legs. Her hair position, and the long step she produces indicates that she is in hurry.
    congratulations

    Hello Rosemary

    the same shot as Craig, but
    - you've opted for a vertical format to include the pink flowers at the foreground and the sea at bottom
    - the light is coming from the opposite direction (I feel you take the picture in the morning).
    I like the colors of the houses and parasols of the restaurants.
    My warmest regards

    Hi Craig

    perfect light which illuminates the city on the rocks, coloring in orange the houses, deepening the blue of the sea, creating shadows which give the feeling of the third dimension. Almost no one in the harbour, maybe it was too late and everybody were in the restaurants!

    Hi Lisa

    All the events you write are nothing compare to what is going to happen in Autralia and in the world. Money is governing the world, and destroying it too. I have been in New Caledonia for 10 month during my army period and I remember all the jewels I have seen even at 1 meter above the sea level.
    Nice blue planet picture!

    Hi Elaine

    A perfect market scene, the cone hat of the seller being in accordance with the ochre spices well lit by the lateral sun. The lady dress and part of the FG contrasts nicely with these warm colors.

    Hi Andrea

    Welcome to TE
    Stunning picture, and I can't believe it when I read your note "I took the shot under the harsh early afternoon summer Sun", for me it was a winter picture!
    but beware, because according to TOS (terms of service) 1.ix.Infrared photos are not allowed, and so your picture could be deleted by the moderators. Several years before, it won't have stayed so long!!!
    If it happens, publish the normal version and this one as a WS.
    cheers

    thanks to your note I understand the picture title!
    A good monochrome with many grey hues, a well thought low POV which stretches the skyscapper.

    Bonjour Stéphane

    Tu nous fais visiter par le grand tour l'ile d'Yeu. Autant que je me souvienne, cette pierre ne faisait que quelques centimètres de hauteur (50?), mais avec ton cadrage, on pense presque à une montagne. Corne de brume et amer jaune et noir pour indiquer les hauts fonds à l'horizon bleu.
    C'est un papier gras au pied du quartz?

    Hi Isabela

    We have to open the thumbnail to discover the many birds on the river (ducks, swans and even some gulls on the ice pack). I wonder if the building wouldn't be cropped to focus on the river life.

    It seems it's turning! Well taken with the light and shadows on a radial and rounded dimension, and off centered vision.
    I like it.

    nicely realised, the clouds shadows increase the sense of third dimension, the mountains slopes direct our view on the silhouetted group of camels.

    Hello Avijit

    Welcome on TE
    Maybe you opted for a high key just in order to have the lonely walkers on the empty beach, but for my taste, it's too white with no matter on the dry sand surface.

    Hi Tannistha

    First of all, welcome on TE.
    I like the generous smile of this young boy, well off centered!
    You've partially desaturate the BG, and blurr it all, except around his face, where we can see a sharp part of the wall (you've taken a round tool). Couls have been better!
    I suppose you upgraded the saturation which seems too much for the skin color.
    Nevertheless, an eye catching picture!
    Go on posting!
