    Hi Eleu

    Well framed and I like the color contrast: red balloon against the sky at the blue hour.
    well done!

    Hello Ali,

    This is lovely.
    The softly reflected clouds in the f/g set the scene of a natural calm. The repeating sand bars act like steps, guiding viewers into the landscape, terminating with real clouds, which complete the scene.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Jason

    Very good encounter, off centered, and she has an expression as if she has met some little green men from mars!I like also the matter of the wood, painted or not.
    Discovering the world is not only taking landscapes in picture, it's having contact with other people.

    Hello JJ,

    This is superb blue hour/night shot.
    Your slow shutter speed has used all the available light to illuminate the riverside line and the cathedral and give them a sparkling appearance against the rich blues of the sky.
    The clarity is excellent.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    It looks as a maze, but looking closely at the picture, we can walk up the stairs to reach the last floor. Nice curves enhances bt the black frame.

    Hello Constantino,

    A very well observed daily life shot.
    You have positioned the fisherman strongly so that his rods make a lovely diagonal into the frame and act as leads to the boat.
    I wonder if the boat caused disturbing waves and spoilt his fishing opportunities.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mariusz,

    I was interested to learn about your home town. For you, it must be a warm experience to return to family, friends and familiar places.

    You do yourself an injustice. This is a beautiful photograph, composed with great care and skill. It is a lesson to others in compositional excellence, the angled branch and shrub defining a starting point, which leads diagonally to the mausoleum and its shimmering reflection.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jose,

    I remember being entranced walking around this park. It is difficult to find something that hasn't been posted a hundred times before but you have given us something different. I don't know whether it was intended, surely it was, but I love the fact that you have united the photograph with a bench at one side and seated legs at the other! They are yearning to join up!
    The dappled light and the artistic elements complete this most interesting shot.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Burak,

    I like this very much, it is a complete sunset with a fine layered composition.
    The silhouetted figures add human interest to an otherwise sleepy scene. The sky is a glorious mixture of red/amber and yellow and I just love that you have caught the very tip of the sun, sliding out of sight.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gerrit,

    This is an interesting 'daily life' scene. The focal girl stands out well in her red attire, whilst the pans, with their shiny exteriors and repeating shapes, lead nicely into the shot.

    Hello Nicole,

    This is part of the city that we do not see very often and it all the more refreshing because of that. I love the slightly dilapidated appearance of the walls and the strong reflections in the canal. The end of boat acts as a directional lead.

    Although the buildings are vertical, the water appears to be on a slant. I don't know if you have ever tried it but it is easy to correct with image transform-distort, in PS or PSE.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Craig
    Waiting for traffic to calm down for this 22 second exposure couldn't have been an easy task. But your patience was well rewarded. Great composition, colours and reflections in blurred water.
    Congrats on your 900th! :-)

    Hello Seyed,

    I'm not sure how well this would photograph in daylight but I can see, here, how beautiful it looks at night with the artificial light emphasising the shape and splendour of the minarets, against the contrast of the sky.

    Thank you for sharing this,

    Bonjour Gigi,

    A wonderfully colourful spectacle and well captured as to share with others. I like the inclusion of the silhouetted heads; they give a sense of the context and they help the thirds composition.

    Have a lovely day,
