    Hello Trevor,

    An interesting note about St. Ives and its attractions and a very attractive picture to accompany it.

    Your inclusion of the artist seen with his painting on the bench adds foreground interest as well as depth to the picture and the distant view is delightful too with lots of detail of the people enjoying the beach.

    A well composed photograph with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hej Trevor,
    Återigen har du funnit en perfekt POV. Konstnären på bänken är utmärkt bra placerad vid sidan, där han ser ut över den fina lilla stranden med det lagom myllrande folklivet. Den här bilden är förmodligen mycket bättre än hans målning, även om han lyckas hitta de rätta färgerna och samma fina ljus.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Miguel,
    This is a great cathedral and I have had the pleasure of also seeing it from the inside. The light and colours are very good and you managed to get the whole church in the shot. I also always appreciate when there are at least a couple of persons included in front of a large building like this. They always make the photo more lively and interesting.

    Hello Will,
    I have just passed through Dobrota, having stayed a couple of times in Kotor, but I recognize the view of the lovely bay very well. It's a very scenic area and you have really made it look nice in this picture. I like the play of light and shades on the mountains and the nice small clouds flying quite low. The yellow buoy is another very small but fine detail.

    Hello Angshuman,
    Although I've never been to Samarkand, or anywhere else in Uzbekistan, I think I could fairly well imagine the smell and taste of this bread. It couldn't be entirely different to the wonderful bread I have tasted in Iran and Afghanistan, or for that matter India. The aroma can make it a pleasure just to walk by the bakery. This is a lovely photo of the saleswoman and her tasty looking nons. The light is so nicely concentrated in the foreground that I almost overlook the rather dull interior of the market. The boy leaning inside the frame to the right is slightly disturbing and could perhaps have been left out of the composition. For the balance even those to the left could have been cropped. But this is not a major criticism, just a marginal suggestion.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    The red sign saying Karen Marie brightens the shady foreground, but I think the view further back is the nicest part of the photo. The houses of various sizes look so crammed together that they make me think of a cubistic painting. The blue boat catching the evening sun, and ts fine reflections, is almost like a third photo inside the photo. There are lots of things to watch here.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    Congratulations on #900 and a fine photo for the jubilee. There is a fabulous number of light sources in this big city, making the blue hour rather a violet hour. The dark lifted bridge makes an interesting and graphically strong foreground.
    If you give up nursing and join the National Geographic you would probably get enough resources to have the Chicago Police stop the traffic passing by while you get another perfect photo. :-)
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    This is a very bright and colourful photo with a good inclusion of people in the boats, that make the view lively. The buildings are beautiful and have great locations by the river. This should also be a very nice city to explore on foot.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Congratulations on 3500 photos. That probably makes you one of the most active members of TE. This looks like being a wet and not etirely pleasant day, but the long pier gives the photo a good perspective along the wet and shining planks. At the far end we get a nice view of the city. The lack of bright sun has made the colours very nicely mild.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    Spiral staircases are very popular on TE but this one offers more details than such photos usually do. The pendulum's rope is one of them. The light is excellently used and there is a fine variety of colours.

    Hello Will,

    A fascinating and informative note and a splendid photograph with which to illustrate it!

    Your composition is both classic and most pleasing, the little boat and its yellow buoy holding the foreground perfectly while still allowing a wonderful view to the distant mountains. The boat is also perfectly balanced by the foreground trees and the little stone jetties on the right.

    But what really "makes" this image for me is the glorious play of light and shade on the mountainsides afforded by the passage of the fluffy clouds overhead.

    The light and colours are glorious, your exposure spot-on with full details visible in both the deepest shadows and the lightest parts, and the details and sharpness are exquisite, especially when viewed at "proper" size on "beta" TE.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Burak,
    I didn't see this photo before, but it's a fine shot of the very typical scenery of eastern Anatolia. You found a perfect POV showing the road winding through the "endless" landscape. It reminds me strongly of long journeys by bus or train in the 1970's. It also gives me a pleasure to add 2 points to this photo, giving it a total of 200 :-).
    Best regards,

    Hello Jason,
    This is a lovely shot and it is definitely one of your finest. Although the little girl doesn't seem to be looking straight at you (at Malgo?), there is still a superb interaction between her and somebody outside. Her curious smile is so nice, and her pink dress matches the window's blue frame perfectly. The window as such and the traditional wooden structure of the house seems so typical Russian in a timeless way, like straight out of one of the great Russian 19th century novels. Even the street sign is a fine detail.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Beautiful shot will. Dobrota means goodness. The light is superb as it picks up details near and far and plays with the reflections. Enchanting background. Boka Kotarska is one of my favourite places as is Makarska. Regards. Klaudio.

    Namaste Angshuman.One of my favourite subjects- bread, for wheat is in itself a paradox, giving us our daily staple food which is also used in religious rituals by some cultures, and yet bread's availability is the result of agriculture where wheat, barley, rice, took humanity from hunting and gathering to a sedentary, urban life that ultimately led to the despoliation of nature in its pristine form and ultimately to monoculture and the use of pesticides etc.Having said that, there is nothing on earth to match the sweet scent of freshly baked bread being taken out off the oven. The photo tempts us with the golden colours of the flat bread and the POV chosen.Regards. Klaudio.

    Hi Brain. Lovely soft light seems to go well with the delicate looking rigging of the ship. nice too how the creamy sails of the other ship act in contrast to the main subject.The buildings do not clash with the ships in my opinion as they too have their own intricate construction.
