    Hello Rosemary,
    Wow - you certainly took advantage of the beautiful late afternoon light. The golden exterior contrasts so well with the deep shadow areas. What I particularly like is the light picking out some detail on the shutter in the FG. You handled the light brilliantly and the picture has that unmistakable rustic, Tuscan look.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Craig,
    Yes this does sum up Cuban life very well. It is also a very clever composition making use of the diagonal and the view up the stairs. Uncluttered surroundings make this a first class portrait. The shabby exterior and faded paintwork are just so Cuban.
    Love it.

    Hello Benny,
    This is a photo that conveys relaxation on sunny days. The red flowers and the green shirt stand out so well against the white buildings.
    Lovely.

    Hello Ana,
    The golden tones and crisp detail make this an extraordinary picture. You chose a tight and symmetrical framing of this corridor in the fort which works very well. Outstanding quality in difficult light.

    Hello Will,
    I enjoyed reading the note which makes the photo even more interesting. It is the type of picture that I can linger on as I try to make out the words and symbols. Well caught colours and a nice tight presentation.

    Hello Carlo,
    This image has been well cropped giving a very graphic and pleasing picture. Very nice colours that have been well reflected. The line of orange seats adds punch in a strong horizontal line.
    very well observed and taken.

    Hello Federico,
    This is a very beautiful mountain scene. The sunset has lit the tops of the mountains very well and I love the hazy BG. The yellow flowers in the FG are important part of the image as it adds some colour to the shadow areas.
    Very lovely image - TFS.

    This is a very fine picture from your travels. The old scales contrast with the fresh fruit. The narrow DOF prevents the BG confusing the picture - nicely done.

    Hello Bev,
    No snow down here in the south of England yet. As I do not have to travel in the next couple of days I wouldn't mind some. This is a lovely picture of you village. The tyre marks in the snow provide the lead in and of course that red hat absolutely makes this a 'photographers picture'. Even the lamppost helps to frame the composition. Excellent snow scene.

    An excellent contribution to TE in both the subject matter and the quality of the image. Your viewpoint taken at the blue hour gives a stark reminder of events.

    Hello Les,
    I like the way that you have shown us the area around this deserted building. The ramshackled haven is bathed in lovely light and surrounded by gorgeous countryside. The wide-angle lens suits the subject, adding to the feeling of isolation.
    Excellent image - one that I like very much indeed.

    These huts look well sheltered from the elements and blend so beautifully with their surroundings. I like your viewpoint and the path leading to a more substantial residence behind. Lots of textures and rustic colours - excellent!

    Hello Kasia,
    How 'normal' this place looks and not what I expected from this part of the world. It will be interesting to look back sometime and see what has become of this place. The photo is lovely with great use of the fountain and lighting. An excellent TE post with a note that is very interesting too.

    Hello Wladyslaw,
    You show us how good photography can be done in the rain. The greyness of the buildings and the black railings are perfectly punctuated by the red umbrella. The three ladies with umbrellas coming down the street are excellent and balance the composition. The wet surfaces have given a special quality to this image.
    First class.

    Hello Brian,
    Roll on spring and the re-emergence of the spring flowers. This is a lovely reminder of what is to come. When I take pictures of woods I find the photos look 'disorganised' but this one is super with those straight tree trunks giving a pattern. The bluebells at the base are more diffuse and contrast very well with the trunks. Delightful light and saturated colours.
    Gorgeous work.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello John,
    The wind and drifting snow is very evident in this lovely photo. I like the pale colours and the whiteout areas - makes me shiver just to look at it. The fence either side of the road works very well to direct the eyes through the picture and to give some idea of where the edge of the road is. How is the snow today for you? It sounds as if you have had a fair amount. We may get a passing snow shower later today but shouldn't come to much.
    Best wishes, Ann

    A wonderfully sharp picture with almost metallic colours. The colours in the sky and water are a perfect BG. Worth getting wet for perhaps!!
