    Bonsoir Christiane,

    I am very impressed by the light management in this evening photo of Le Chateau de Flemalle en nocturne. I see you used a very short focal length Tokina lens and an exposure of 1/21 second. I would have expected a much longer exposure to get such excellent quality.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Bonjour Clodo,

    This is a heart-warming photo with the two young girls being young girls! The colors of their dresses and the intense cobalt blue of the door complement each other.

    Warm regards,

    Zdravo Nikola. Minimalist composition but very effective in conveying the majesty of the Danube and also the white season. Well done. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

    Bonjour Clodo,

    You captured the quad (4x) from the best possible vantage point, standing on a bridge as the boat went by. When each rower has two oars the sport is called "sculling" as in your photo. When the rowers have only one oar each, the boat is called a "sweep." In high school and university I rowed in a sweep (8+); then my son did the same, but reached much higher success; now in a third generation, my 15-year old grandson is rowing in high school in a sweep.

    Here is a "sweep" (8+) also called an "eight". Four years ago, my son who is now a doctor was rowing in a Princeton alumni "eight." They now call them selves "Fat-Cats" and alternate in Princeton's orange and black colors.

    Warm regards and thank you for a stroll down memory lane and sharing this photo.

    Restful scene where even conversations must have a certain ease to them Demure cat adds to the sense of quiet expectation even if the weather was inclement. What to do on a day like this except have a (Turkish)coffee (sorry, can't help it) or a glass of ouzo. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hi sachin. is that Bukit Kulai or Agung in the distance? I think I was around this area as well a month later. i like these little huts where equipment is kept and people take a break from exhausting work. Lovely moment in time in a timeless landscape. Regards. Klaudio.

    Shouldn't you be in bed getting your beauty sleep? Nice details and further proof for me that I should make the effort and use a tripod more often. Very good management of light and shade. Ciao e buona notte. Klaudio.

    Bonjour Jean. You were there two months before me and not during the monsoon as I was. The rice you photographed had been harvested by the time I got there and new rice planted here and there. Great POV. Lovely shades of green. Amicalement. Klaudio.

    Hi Denis. A vision in white dazzles us in the bright light. What a marvellous setting-the clouds in harmonious colours matching the pastel colours of the houses.The light couldn't be better as there are no sharp contrasts in the shadows and the details are revealed. Beautiful scene, fine composition using the gentle diagonals. Amicalement. Klaudio.

    Hi benny. Yes, time is money and skills shown in this photo are becoming less and less frequent. So much is lost to expedience and cheap imports. Traditions are dying all around the globe as are the forests and seas- all in a race for bells and whistles, plastic crap we don't need. Special light and a particular POV have made this image memorable. Best wishes. Klaudio.

    Hi Pawel. Set for the day, company, something to eat for lunch, nice drink to warm the body, beautiful nature and hopefully a nice catch of fish. But it's the peace and quiet that really matters. Splendid clarity, enchanting light. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.
