    Hi Craig,

    Nope, in my opinion there ain't nowt wrong with postcard pictures just like there's nothing wrong with "chocolate box" pictures either.

    This picture's a smasher with lovely strong but well balanced composition, lovely light, fine vibrant colours and, as always, stunning details and sharpness.

    A Beauty!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Les,

    This is a truly beautiful photograph.

    The short grass, the bare rocks and that windswept gnarled old tree all suggest exactly what you say in your excellent note - that this is a wild and exposed place which can be very inhospitable in bad weather or at certain times of year. I can imagine times and situations when it might be quite spooky up here.

    A beautifully composed photograph with gorgeous light and colours, a splendid sky and exquisite details and sharpness. The lone figure standing on that outcrop of rock clinches the composition perfectly. Did you "plant" her there or was her presence simply fortuitous? Or, indeed, serendipitous?

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Malgo,

    As always, you have given us an interesting note. Nothing better than olive oil on bread - far healthier than butter and quite tasty too! You can have butter and jam but I don't think olive oil and jam would taste very good! :o)

    What a wonderful idea to have a canvas "roof" above the street to give shade on very hot days. Something we don't really need in Britain too often. Your photograph is delightful and you have captured this scene beautifully. There's something amazing about the light in this picture - it really makes the people stand out beautifully against the paving and the buildings. Gorgeous light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. And what a wonderful photograph of Wolfgang - very well captured acting as a perch for a butterfly! Your 100th TE member to meet! :o) Fabulous!

    Hello Jasmine,

    I absolutely love clocks and love playing around with them, taking them apart and trying to fix them! So this one is really interesting for me.

    It took me a little while to work this one out and I had to look at Wikipedia to find this picture because I was wondering how you "read" the time on this clock. Now I understand that the face or dial of the clock is lower down on the marble base! And I presume that the "wire" which the pendulum hits then works an escapement mechanism to regulate the clock. All very clever!

    This is another of your fine "interior" shots which you do so very well despite the usually poor light. And here we not only have a fine image of this remarkable timepiece, but we also see an excellent view of the rest of this room reflected in that huge mirror behind the clock.

    Gorgeous light and colours, fine composition and excellent details and clarity.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Roger,

    You have given us a very interesting note here - but tell me, if this place was built in the 1600s, then why does it have 1870 written on the side of this building in Roman numerals? Or perhaps these outbuildings were constructed at a later date than the main Riddarhuset?

    Anyway, this is a delightful photograph taken in lovely light and displaying beautiful soft colours. You have managed to overcome any temptation to oversaturate the colours which, to my mind at least, are perfect. Your exposure is spot-on, the details and sharpness are exquisite and the composition is very pleasing to the eye.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. This picture, like many uploaded at 800 pixels wide, does unfortunately demonstrate the degradation in quality and sharpness which occurs now that TE has decided to "shrink" all pictures to just 790 pixels in width. Have a look at this same picture on "beta" TE here, where it is displayed at full size, and see if you see the difference! We've had discussions (with the administrators too) about this on the forum but no cure has so far come about. The answer would appear to be either to restrict the size of your posted images to no more than 790 pixels in width or else post them considerably larger (say 1200 pixels wide) when they seem to suffer less in the way of degradation when "shrunk".

    Ciao Neyvan
    splendido paesaggio, il taglio verticale amplifica la profondità e la vista è magnifica.
    Ottimo l'effetto di luci e ombre che mettono in risalto l'andamento delle colline.

    Ciao Roland
    questi paesaggi attirano sempre la mia attenzione, sono molto diversi dai miei e proprio per questo li ritengo interessanti.
    Questo verde così vivido riesco a vederlo solo un paio di volte all'anno.
    Piacevole composizione e ottima presenza delle persone che rendono più dinamica la scena.

    Ciao Angel
    la cappella è piccola, ma è supportata da un grande loggiato.
    Bello il giardino circostante e ben curato, piacevole la scalinata che taglia la foto con la sua diagonale e che porta lo sguardo fino alla piccola chiesa.
