    Hello Eleu,

    You were there just at the right moment to capture these two fishers, perfectly silhouetted against the setting sun. It is a fine shot, images well placed, wonderful colours and a great mood.

    I might have cloned out the slightly distracting rectangle, top left.
    I wish I had taken this shot!

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Maciej,

    Do you use a polarising filter?
    I ask because your colours seem so rich and deep.

    THis does look like an interesting place to visit.
    The castle stands sentinel over the pretty village, with its terracotta roofs.

    I like how you have included the castellated wall, for it seems to ring fence the scene and keep attention on the buildings, helping to create a good sense of depth.

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    You were very busy with your camera when you visited Malta. This is so different from your previous shots of the narrow streets and the decorated balconies. I like your viewpoint, where the vertical, f/g flowers are continued by the proud, stone pillars, terminating in the imposing roof dedication. It is a fine flowing photograph, where the touches of greenery, at the top, just soften its impression.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    I remember that you posted shots from this place previously, but this time, the greens seem richer, more vibrant.
    I like how you have made use of the light and shadows, for contrast, and how you have used the arched branches to create a natural border and a bridge under which we can enjoy the rest of the scene.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Didi,

    This is a great shot but seen in large size, it is truly spectacular. I like how the greenery seems to part, clearing a pathway towards the warm, terracotta village, nestling in the shelter of the hills. The castle, rising above, resembles a guard, a protector, keeping a vigil for a danger.
    The colours are rich and the details sharp.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Dia duit dear Noel

    Well this photo can't get more un-Irish really. I would have thought it was from Asia or the Middle East. I love the tight framing, the play of light and shadow and of course the spooky, distorted face. Very moody and artistic. Me likey! Yay it's Friday, Wheatjuice o'clock. I'll have 3 or 4 in your honour.

    Cheers

    Ahhh my 2 favourite subjects: fellas and cheese. All that's missing is that he's half-clad ;) A beautiful scene of this smiling formaggiero Fantastic colours, great timing and jeez that cheese looks perfect for a bottle of pluge. Hope you bought the shop out, as they've given you an excellent photo.

    Hello Krzystof,

    Having browsed your gallery, it is amazing just how much difference there can be in something as simple as a window! You have collected an immense variety!
    The details of the decoration and the textures of the materials have been very well displayed in a pleasing, symmetrical composition.

    My warm regards,

    Ciao cara Rosemary

    This photo takes me back to when I was first discovering your beautiful Gallery. I distinctly remember it was a photo of a saltpan that took my breath away. And you do that again with this photo. Superb colours, perspective and compositional framing. The car is dwarfed by this wonderful natural phenomena and the textures of the salt are just a delight. Well done and I hope it's still ok to pinch this one for my Saltpans theme.

    Hugs

    Hello Noel,

    Modern renovations have created unusual and eye-catching features all over. These poles, though nothing singularly, together, and with the sun piercing their format, make a very imposing statement. I would imagine that they look amazing when glowing in the night sky!
    A well composed shot and sharply exposed, in a difficult position, facing the sun.

    My warm regards,

    Gidday Mike

    How's Australia treating you? Or has our mini-Thatcherbot Abbott scared the bejesus outta you yet and you've scarpered back to the Old Dart? Anyway, top shot. Love the POV, the graphism, the symmetry and the optical illusion. The blue tones and reflections are pretty impressive. Nice work. Hey, I'll be in Melbourne over Easter if you've got time to catch up. I usually meet with other TErs Daddo, SteveH, Macondo and Skippy007 if you'd like to come along.

    Hello Ney,

    This is a striking composition, where the statue of the general is competing with the tall building and, maybe, winning! The details are crisp and the colours good.
