    Hello Gosia,
    I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas. I love this shot because it is very sharp which helps the coloured decorations stand out very well against the dark BG. Cleverly framed keeping giving excellent impact.
    Warm Regards, Ann

    Hello Roland,
    A very atmospheric and almost monochrome shot. The mist over the water makes this a very subtle and enjoyable picture.

    Hello Gert,
    Since visiting Vietnam and Cambodia a couple of years ago I have read various reports about the Vietnam war in an attempt to understand this part of modern history that I grew up with. When it was happening I didn't pay enough attention to the complexities of the war as it all seemed so distant from my life in the UK. Interestingly, just after getting my visa for Vietnam I passed through USA immigration. The officer noticed the visa and questioned me as to my reasons for visiting Vietnam in the future. He seemed genuinely perplexed that I should consider the country as a tourist destination. The war probably remains a difficult subject for the Americans.
    Your photo and note are, as usual, very interesting. So TFS a well presented scanned slide from thirty years ago.
    Warm Regards, Ann

    Hello Chris,
    Glad that some shots turned out sharp without the motion blur as this one is captivating. The blue hour has meant that the cruise ship stands our very well against the BG. Nevertheless it is apparent that there is a landscape of steep-sided fjords. The reflections in the water really make this a stunning image.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    A super shot and a most interesting note too. I love the shallow DOF and the red berries as it gives a picture with 'punch'.

    Hello John,
    I remember this well. You have taken this very sympathetically retaining the soft green colours without over-saturating them. The gate invites the viewer into the picture. What makes this for me is the pink foxglove to the side of the gate that just adds a bright touch of colour.
    Great memories.
    Kind Regards, Ann
