    Hello Barbara,
    A red roof-tops scenery over the beautiful town of Prague. I guess it was taken from the "Hradcany", on the hill where the known fort/palace is.
    2/3 pic. space allocation by the book... well done.
    Have a nice weekend,

    Hello Jean Claude,

    An interesting and informative note and a very fine photograph to accompany it.

    You have chosen the perfect viewpoint here, placing the tall monument perfectly in the frame and with a fine foreground of foliage, bright green grass and reflections while the column bearing Henry Dundas's statue is perfectly depicted against a lovely deep blue sky with puffy clouds.

    Beautiful light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Jean,

    Isn't it funny that if you hear or read a new word (of which you've never knowingly been aware before) you suddenly hear or read it again very quickly. Have you ever found that? So it's strange that during my weekly walk with friends on Wednesday that we were walking along the banks of the Clyde and I remarked about the big plants which were growing wild and which looked like huge rhubarb plants though with green rather than red stems: my friend thought that they were Gunnera and that was a new word to me! And now I read it again two days later! But, tell me, is Gunnera the same plant which grows wild in our British countryside?

    Anyway, this is a remarkably life-like sculpture and you have captured it perfectly on camera. I love the dappled light and shade on these massive "leaves" caused by the partial shade of a nearby tree which seems to give them a fine three dimensional appearance against the bright green grass.

    A fine photograph with lovely light and colours, fine bold composition, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Good evening Gert,
    A barber that display the styles of haircut he was able to offer his clients, maybe to "save" words and get strait to the job...
    An old photo, one of your collection of oldies, show a place we seldom see on TE.
    Well scanned and preserved.

    Hi Craig,

    So you and Tosca eventually found Dean Village? Your photos are all lovely but I think you were wise to choose this particular one as your "main" image. Yes, the others are fine pictures with lots of interest but, despite the fact that skies are so often naturally white, there's just something about white skies that people don't much like - queer that, isn't it? Perhaps we should start a campaign in favour of white skies? :)

    This one is a cracker, It certainly shows off the greenness of Edinburgh,, those huge expanses of rich lush foliage dominating the foreground while the building disappearing into the background look as though they are trying to escape from being drowned by them.

    Glorious light and colours, a fine strong composition, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    A nice photo with a strong local colour in more than one way. It's as interesting glimpse of a part of Jerusalem probably not seen so very often by foreigners.

    Hello Chris,
    A neat picture of the display inside the museum in Heraklion.
    Contrast against the grey wall is immaculate, fine golden horns and distinct sharpness of the black "head'.

    Scotland "dip" in green Craig, and has too much rain - that's to be expected. But I can see you had relatively good weather, rendered the green superbly.
    A charming town, not too "little-town" in British standard, and there are many "opps" as said.
    Fine taken from a higher POV.
    Have a nice Friday,

    Hello Craig,
    Whether accurate or not, at least you make Edinburgh look very green and pleasant with a composition like this. Apart from the strong green impact I like the contrast with the grey dominance in the upper part. Actually, this photo reminds me of a picture I took recently here in Stockholm that I haven't yet uploaded but probably will. Buildings on one side and a lot of trees, but I also have water.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello John,

    I've done just a little detective work here and I see that this ship is the "Dar Młodzieży", a Polish training ship whose name means "The Gift of Youth". In fact, you can almost read the name on the ship on the larger version of your photograph - your picture really is that sharp!

    The weather for this photograph was better and a little brighter than for your last one and this beautiful ship stands out wonderfully against the sea and sky. Yes, it's a pity that she wasn't in full sail but she's still beautiful!

    A fabulous photograph, so clear and sharp with lovely soft light and colours.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    I would probably not be much interested in the things found inside the department store, but the exterior is wonderful. There are many super architectural details of great artistic value. It's a good photo with fine colours and great clarity.

    Bonjour Claude,

    You are certainly getting very good at this "panning" technique and are clearly managing to judge your shutter speed to the speed of the subject. Even 1/3 second seems remarkably slow for people walking, but it has certainly worked here surprisingly well. And, as you say, this whole thing is very much a "hit or miss" affair but if you take lots of shots you're bound to get lucky!

    This one is absolutely excellent, the heads and upper bodies of these two walkers (one a photographer) very clear while their legs are less sharp and their surroundings are beautifully blurred giving a real sense of motion. And you've managed this is a forest which probably had rather poor lighting conditions too.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Claude,

    as I've just commented to Roland, there is no doubt that wet dull weather does bring out the depth and vibrancy of colours - and it certainly has here. I'm not sure if Little Red Riding Hood had an umbrella or not but the bright red coat of this lady certainly makes her stand out vividly against the dark wet walls and roof of this ancient building.

    You have placed the main subject perfectly in the frame, nicely balanced by the pointed bits on the gables of the roof. The soft light and rich colours are lovely and the image is technically excellent.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
