    Hello Daniel,

    Yes, bikes and Amsterdam go hand in hand!
    To have them as the f/g for your photograph seems most appropriate.
    They help to create the 'busy' atmosphere as well as a horizontal thirds in your composition.
    It's a scene full of activity before the viewers reach the imposing building of the palace.
    I don't know if you are familiar with paintings by L.S. Lowry but this reminds me very much of the busy scenes he recorded in Manchester.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Luis,

    THis is a wild and beautiful landscape, from the rocky f/g to the line of distant, snow=sprinkled mountains.
    The pink sky adds a sense of a different world, maybe a moonscape!
    What better way to emphasise the wildness by sharing the scene with an animal!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    Like on many of the photographs I have taken this summer, you seem to have a blown out sky. I have become much more empathetic about such photographs, considering the quality of the scene and the composition, we cannot legislate for the weather.
    There is much to like about this shot, the acute angle shows many of the buildings from your photograph, yesterday, with their colourful shutters and strings of flags. From this view, you have created a fine sense of perspective.
    The patterned pavement adds texture and artistry, whilst the figures bring the scene to life.
    I see one young lady must have perceived you as magazine photographer ... she is certainly posing!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)
    Weather change today, it is grey and misty!!

    Hi Daniel,
    great capture. The trams are so iconic for Lisbon but for the first time I see a blue hour photo of the tram. Brilliant idea, the light is magnificent. The result is so romantic.
    Very well done!!

    Hi Ike,
    looking at the ruins one can always start speculating how did it look before and how busy the place was.
    I like here the desert like foreground which makes it feel as if a sandstorm have taken the city giving it back to the nature.
    Very well done,

    Czesc Piotr,
    Polnocny wschod kraju jest dla mnie zupelnie nieodkryty. No ale dopiero zaczalem odkrywac okolice nieco na wschod od mojego rodzinnego Tarnowa. Moze na polnocny wschod tez przyjdzie pora.
    To wyglada jak przystanek w drodze na Bialorus.
    Wspanialy palac, mialem okazje go podziwiac w parku miniatur w Inwaldzie :)
    Piekna centralna prezentacja. Swietne czarne chmury dodaja charakteru prezentacji.
    Gdzie sa te francuskie modelki o ktorych piszesz?... :)
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Bien sûr , les bateaux pneumatiques avec leurs énormes moteurs au premier plan ne sont pas des plus pittoresques , mais l'image de Calvi est très belle avec ces forts contrastes , la superbe lumière et ce ciel d'orage .

    Hola Luis,

    These three buildings area very different in colours and styles but in your fine composition, you have cropped them so that they fit nicely together, and there contrasts and similarities can be calmly viewed. Your composition of thirds works really well.
    Colours and sharpness are excellent,

    My warm regards,

    Hello Erhan,

    I like how you have turned the modern building into a colourful, abstract pattern.
    There is a fine sense 3D effect.

    Hello Jean,

    This is such a colourful and prominent feature and makes a great focal point, looking out over the sea. I have photographed it, a few years ago, showing all its colours but never with these fine details of its environment. You have shown how it sits on the Hoe with close features for balance and views over the sea for depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Daniel
    Amazing starry night shot! I love the minimalism of the composition with a hint of the silhouetted forest at the bottom, enough to give the image context but not too much so it doesn't obscure the sky. The colour is great indeed without any light pollution.
    Pozdrawiam

    Hello Chris,

    I must say, I enjoyed Herculaneum even more then Pompeii, which was difficult to achieve! I found it both interesting and moving, when you consider what happened to so many unsuspecting citizens.

    It is clear from your photograph that Herculaneum would have been a very beautiful and sophisticated city.
    I like how you show its relationship with the modern city!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
