    Hello Paul,

    This is an occasion when the sky is the eye-catching aspect.
    It draws immediate attention reminding one of an upside-down whirlpool!
    Of course, the terracotta/red house is the next focal point, being the closest to the sky's pinpoint!
    You must have been an exciting view despite the general lack of light.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You are a recorder of Nature!
    The rocks make a strong, textural f/g, dipping their feet into the pool, whilst the clouds swirl around, obscuring the b/g and threatening like a bad dream!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    Now, this is unusual!
    The patterns of the snow-covered conifers, set against the snow covered rocks, have been very well captured and composed to reveal the similarities and contrasts of nature! It's almost abstract!!!
    The falls make a distinct focal and dividing point.

    Thanks for the notes.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Keshav
    Your composition is really beautiful here with the silhouette of the trees perfectly placed to allow a wonderful view over the cloud. Is like seeing a garden in heaven itself. Great photo

    Hello Will,

    No need to apologise about the originality of your shot! Sunsets are all a bit different and contain such wonderful colours that it would be criminal not to record them!

    This is an exceptionally fine example of a sunsetting sky and you have composed it to get the very best artistic qualities from sea, silhouetted land and sky!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Pavle,

    Sunsets are romantic.
    I suppose its the warmth of the colours.
    It also, makes us realise the vastness of space, as we gaze skywards!

    In your photograph, we have so many beautiful colour contrasts. The vapor trail seems to be directing our attention to fireball of the sun, sending molten colours into the wider area!!

    I like how you have minimised the silhouetted earth. It sets a scene but takes no attention from the sky.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Philippe,

    I love to walk the canals in Brittany, when I go over to see family! No one could argue about their beauty and tranquility.

    I like your viewpoint in this shot. It captures very clear details of the barge and creates the most wonderful sense of perspective.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Jean,

    I cannot help but be excited by the wonderful, acid yellow colours of rapeseed!
    In addition, you have composed the shot beautifully, clearly using the rule of thirds and exposing the shot with excellent clarity.

    Hello Stephen,

    Oh, my, you raise the head of nostalgia!
    How many wonderful companies no linger exist or only do in name!

    This is such a good crop!
    You have emphasised the peculiarities of the bike but left the common to our imagination and, in such a way, have been able to focus in on the rough, textural details!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Lars,

    I do like to see photographs of the same place taken in different conditions. It really makes you understand the effects of light and composition!

    This is a very well taken shot where, because the light was not at its best, you have paid lots of attention to the wonderful benefits of the reflections and minimised the sky. A very sound decision!
    You have relayed the calm and tranquility of the scene; everything is so still.

    I was interested to see the use of traffic lights. I can only think of them being used on our local canal where there is a mile tunnel, which is so narrow that two boats would be unable to pass!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    I have never seen this sculpture before but what a clever use of symbolism, to draw attention to the problem of landmines! I'm sure we have all seen photographs or know people who have suffered in this way! The Invictus Games are just about to begin, where injured servicemen use sport as a means of getting their lives back together and feeling useful in themselves.

    It was important to include figures in your photograph, to reveal the huge scale of the sculpture, and you have done this very well. Not only do we have figures but one is posing and the other is setting the scene perfectly with a camera!
    I love how the chair dwarfs even the elevated flags. Maybe, another message, that this is more important than all the individual squabblings between nations!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    now this has to be one of the most unique looking subjects I've seen on TE in a while.

    How big is this thing? Looks like it should be filled with beer :)

    haha...great to see this.
    I saw your shots of the Lighthouse and I just had to post mine as well :)

    I like your close up view, this is something I didn't get.

    Nice framing and border to go along with it.
    always great to see these local shots

    Hi Denis
    oh yes, these are the boats you had shown us earlier right?
    its good to see them from this far away vantage point as well, something a little bit different.

    lucky for you the man is there to give scale and size comparison, i like that. Lovely greens and yellows mixed with blues.

    See you around, Off to Chicago tomorrow
