    Hello Nicolas,
    The misty softness really suits this lovely image. The person walking the dog is so well placed in the frame.

    Hello Stephen,
    This is an interesting street view with the old architecture and pastel facades making for a good contrast with the bright greens and reds of the parked vehicles.
    Nice and sharp and well handled light.

    Hello Silvio,
    An irresistible sunset - how lovely to have seen this. I love the way that the sunset is sandwiched between the silhouetted FG and the dark clouds.
    Beautiful!

    Hello Serge

    Glorious location, and an expertly-chosen viewpoint. The light and those clouds make a significant contribution as well. Good work.

    Hello Roland

    Yes: keep taking these arresting, minimalist, well-composed photographs! This one's another belter. We don't need to see the whole structure: this thoughtfully-framed close-up is much more impressive. Good work.

    Hello Ana

    I guess you are serious about the disruption caused by these locals! I'm surprised it's tolerated. But it's produced a series of really interesting ethnological studies by yourself. Licor Beirão, eh? I'll admit that I don't know it, though I have in the past come under the influence of Medronho...

    Hello Olivier

    Iceland is a place I've been meaning to visit for a long time. Your photographs from the country make me even more determined! This view from above the falls is unusual and special; in fact the poor weather you refer to may have helped you to convey the dark, brooding atmosphere that I, at any rate, associate with the place.

    Hello Stephane,
    This is a very dramatic photo that has been very well taken. The power of the waves is so evident. The red and green warning lights at the entrance to the harbour stand out against the brown and grey shades.
    A super image.

    Hello Bev,
    These do look in an idyllic situation. The recent storms must surely have brought the waves in too close for comfort. I like the small splashes of colour on the houses and cars that contrast with the tranquil greens and browns.
    Excellent.

    Hello Takero

    OK, let's admit it: this is one sexy picture! Of course the girl and her expression, but also your rendition of the scene. I'm assuming a fairly slow shutter speed, maybe around 1/30th sec, which has blurred the movement beautifully, while still allowing us to dwell on that challenging eye-contact. Super!

    He may not have been very entertaining but he is a great subject for a candid photo. The red bag and the red accordion stand out well against the grimy wall.

    Hello John,
    I read about the high fares in the paper recently. These type of rickshaws seem much more romantic in exotic faraway places than in London (and even more dangerous sometimes!). Love the photo with the man happily having his photo taken while waiting for a fare, although not from you I guess. There is a good BG of busy London - a super image.

    I have not seen Zion myself with so much snow, although did get caught in a frightening flash flood while parked near the Narrows! Your viewpoint is just perfect and I love the low cloud adding even more atmosphere to this snowy scene.
    A photo that you must be very proud of.

    You were standing on the Ponte de le Guglie, from where I too have taken pictures (though no posts from this point!) As ever, it's the light that makes the image. And of course the clouds too.
