    Hello Ann,

    The surfaces are beautiful.
    They look like burnished gold.
    I think it was a good decision to move in close, giving excellent textural and colour details of the surfaces.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Jasmine,

    I'm so glad that you included a w/s to show the actual clock from your title. Then it all made sense.
    I love how you have used the mirror so that we are able to see the whole of the statue and the ceiling moulds in the reflection. It is a novel way of looking at an interior. You have captured some fine textural details.
    We have links with Cliffe Castle. The previous owner of our neighbour's house was a historian and when the top storey of Cliffe Castle was removed, he collected some of the stones and a sculptured griffin and built a castellated wall around his garden with them. I can see the griffin, from my bedroom window!
    I hope you don't mind me telling you, you have misspelt Keighley.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    A shot which is crisp, clean and beautifully composed, the focal church, with its distinctive red roof, very well placed in the frame.

    Hello Daiel,

    When we visited Belgium, we actually came home with four different beer glasses and when we use them, it brings back good memories.
    I like this shot very much for its sharpness and its artistic composition. The tilt works extremely well.

    Ha! Ha! Are you suggesting that this is how the beer loving Belgians see the world, or is it just visitors?

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Merhaba Mesut,

    It is only when you notice how many photographs you have on your profile, that you realise just how many photographs you have posted! Think How many you have taken and not posted!
    You have given us some delightful shots, from a wealth of different places, and with many different styles, in your 2800 shots, which have informed, interested and inspired. Thank you.
    This is a fine shot.
    I just love how close the focal images are, really filling the f/g and strangely unaware of your presence. The details are sharply gathered and though the light is harsh, you have controlled it well.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gosia,

    This time of day turns the world to gold and you have captured that moment for us all to enjoy.
    Your shot follows the rule of thirds in a classical way.
    Although the sun is a strong focal point, for me, the most interesting part is the play of light and shadows on the water.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Aleksander,

    This is a very well composed shot, the defensive wall creating a good sense of perspective as it leads across the frame to a strong vanishing point. The tower, sharp and textured, is also strongly placed.

    Hello Didi,

    This building is captured with excellent clarity and with light and shadows that help to create a very 3D effect.
    You have composed the shot with strong guide lines, so that we move very naturally from right to left across the frame, with plenty of time to absorb the details.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    Another cracking shot!
    The aeroplanes are colourful and interesting, with their smoke tail on a perfect diagonal across the blue sky.
    The planes look to have been titivated specially for the occasion, like two women on stage, and there are two, fearless women on stage, too!
    Excellent sharpness for a difficult, moving subject.

    Ha! Ha! John, I'm impressed.
    Impressed with your skill and impressed by your ability to get this shot so surreptitiously!
    It's a cracker!
    A shot that is clear, crisp, very well composed and amusing to boot!
    Is the dad so engrossed in something that he is oblivious to what's happening or is he just too interested to interrupt the proceedings or is he totally unaware of what's happening!!
    Oh, wouldn't we like to see further shots!

    Glad you told me about this or I might have missed it!

    Hello Brian,

    A strong, vertical composition, where the repeating, rectangular windows make a pleasing chequerboard pattern.
    I like how the shadow makes a triangular shape across the paler skyscraper.

    I feel it would have been great to remove the slight lens distortion on the l/h building, an easy op. with PS.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    The red shirts are certainly eye-catching and are well placed in this fine composition.

    This is far from an easy shot but you have dealt with it very well.
    The composition is exciting, ensuring that viewers investigate every section.

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    You have really captured the beauty of this window grill which is very art nouveau in its style. I would imagine it to be very useful at allowing in fresh air whilst keeping the room secure.
    I like how you have filled the frame with the window, making sure that viewers were able to see the details clearly.

    Hello Craig,

    I definitely think there is a place for both types of photograph. It depends on the subject and the photographer. I like this very much, especially with the rocks to give f/g interest. The rocks link up very nicely, across the water, to the foundation rocks of the houses. You have achieved a very natural flow across this scene, which is pleasingly sharp.

    My warm regards,
    Bev. :-)
