    Hello Klaudio,
    I love this nearly monochrome picture. It is so full of atmosphere with the mist over the hard and more delicate shapes. The image is very well proportioned with plenty of space given to the delicately cloudy sky
    Lovely!
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Brian,
    This is a perfect picture of this tall ship. The colours of the flags really stand out well against the lovely sky. Shame about the power lines crossing the rigging but unless you clone them out there is nothing you can do about that. A stunning image with incredible detail - super!
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello John,
    How nice of this beautiful bird to pose for you! It is hard to get photos of owls in a tree so you used this opportunity very well. The detail on the feathers is first class and I love the subtle changes in colour around the eyes and beak. There is excellent light and clarity and composition - you must be very pleased with this one.
    Great photography John.
    Kind Regards, Ann.

    Hello Pedro,
    The light streaming under the arches is very well handled. There is good detail in the decorated walls and ceiling, and the floor area is lovely with the interplay of light and shadows. You chose a very interesting viewpoint. Congratulations on a fine picture.

    Hello Christiane,
    The paintwork look very new and clean. I love the way that you have turned this row of cabins into a very graphic image. Good use of the diagonal and perspective.
    Excellent!

    hello Chris,
    It does indeed look rather spooky. On one hand it looks empty and not used but on the other hand there is evidence of wood chopping and stacking. Lovely warm light and good contrast.

    Hello Noel,
    This is an excellent image. I love the effect of the light on the path with the shadows of the gate falling across it. The dark silhouettes give a rather foreboding look to the image - a place that I wouldn't want to linger! First class light management and a creative composition. Very well done.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    The freshly painted blue domes have nicely caught the light. I never tire of seeing pictures from Oia - a magical place especially for photographers!

    Hello Gert,
    I read your note with interest and was amused by the visa 'regulations'. This is a lovely scene of a busy market street and how sad that parts of the area have been destroyed. An excellent scan of an interesting place that most of us will never visit.

    Hello Nicolas,
    I love the way that you have photographed these massive mountain peaks. Without snow they look rather forbidding and awesome. There is some beautiful light that has picked put some lovely colour against the brown.
    Well taken and TFS.

    Hello Paul,
    I also find that paper maps are generally easier to use and more fun. This is a great view of this urban jungle with the river nicely dividing the city on a diagonal. The streets look so small from the height you were at.
    TFS such an interesting image.

    Hello Carlo,
    A lovely early morning shot with those beautiful earthy colours that I associate with the buildings of Italy. The reflections help to balance the composition and give it more depth.
    Gorgeous view of Pisa.
