    Hello Swapan,
    This is lovely. I was there two years earlier but did not get a good shot like this one. There is a lovely sense of movement and the colours of the clothes are gorgeous against the sandy BG. The outstretched shawl is particularly good. Very well done.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Jason,
    for anyone not living in the area this is an interesting daily life scene. You are presenting it in a fine simple composition in a vertical frame, providing much depth and rewarding context. You captured wonderful colours despite the gloomy day, the naturalness of the textures and the vividness of the colours make the scene so lively. It's amazing how you made it look like a story of characters:) Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Burak,
    a beautiful evening scene captured with great timing. I like very much the sharp silhouettes and the distinctive gestures and movements of the people. The sea is an excellent backdrop and it's great how interest develops beyond the foreground scene, to the sea, the marina and the sun sliding through the horizon. You achieved superb clarity, colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Bev,
    this is a very lovely, picturesque place and your photo of it is wonderful. You've captured and given us the opportunity to enjoy all the charm of its character and atmosphere. You coped with the lighting demands excellently and achieved remarkable clarity and great depth. I love the colours and the play of light on the shady water surface. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    bello ed invitante questo vicolo pittoresco, con un carattere austero ma attraente. Mi piace moltissimo l' inquadratura stretta che esalta la prospettiva. La graduazione di luce ed ombra e' magnifica, l'atmosfera del vicolo deserto ha una dolcezza misteriosa. Superbi i dettagli e la ripetizione degli archi. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello John,
    this is a very elegant explosive picture:) I like very much the colours and their different degrees of luminosity against the dark backdrop. You cropped your capture wonderfully, making the most of the unique patterns and giving your composition a very attractive graphical effect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    μια απλή καθημερινή σκηνή με πολύ ωραία ατμόσφαιρα και ιδιαίτερη γοητεία. Μου αρέσει πολύ η επιλογή το συμμετρικό πλοίο να έχει μια σχεδόν συμμετρική θέση στο πάνω μέρος του κάδρου. Ο ψαράς είναι στραμμένος προς αυτό και η σύνθεσή σου τους συνδέει περίφημα. Μια μικρή, "δεμένη" ιστορία με θαυμάσιο φως και χρώματα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
    Ουρανία

    Ciao cara Gigi,
    assolutemente meravigliosa! La qualita' della tua foto e' stupenda e mi piace molto il tuo approccio alla scena, non hai voluto solo descriverla ma creare un lavoro originale ed artistico utilizzandola. Il grafismo ed i colori sono incantevoli, gli spettatori aggiungono dinamismo ed interesse e fanno una cornice misteriosa e vivace. Superbo lavoro, complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Jose,
    I like this photo and its pleasant, quiet atmosphere very much. Your composition is original and intriguing. I like how you included the legs and the bench, very close but not immediately related to the sculpture. I think there's an amusing dimension to this scene, a "dialogue" between legs and bench about the sculpture:) The light sweeps through the scene gently and effectively. The shadows are delightfully mild and the colours lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Carlo,
    questa foto e' molto attraente. Mi piace molto come hai aggiustato il tuo quadro al trombettiere ed al suo passo. Lui sembra serio e pensivo, la vita quotidiana continua normalmente intorno a lui, le altre persone lo prendono per scontato. Il contrasto e' quieto ma intrigatissimo. Dettagli e colori sono superbi. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello dear Ali,
    this is a lovely, peaceful scene. The autumn colours, both the warm and the cold tones, are superb. I like very much the reflection of the clouds and the harmonious tones of sky and water. The landscape stands out in an elegant, rhythmical way through the horizontal layers. The birds' presence is discreet but delightful. There's an agreeable sense of space and freedom. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Gert,
    this is a fine portrait, the gentleman's attitude and the setting make it look very natural, your composition and colour treatment ate quite artistic. The dark colours are harmonious, the whites bring light into the frame. The vendor fits in his daily life setting superbly. His wife's portrait is great too, it has milder, girly colours:) I enjoyed very much the title and your note too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    I like very much the full frame and the depth, this market scene is spontaneous and natural. The well defined colours, the human presence and the excellent clarity make it look so vivid that the noises and scents of the site are evoked easily. The alternation of light and shadow is smooth, it has been rendered excellently. The products look fresh and beautiful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    when I was little I considered the word "tundra" magical and mysterious, I'm glad I can use your photo as reference. The landscape is vast and has very interesting textures. The colour palette is unusual and fascinating, the low clouds and the atmosphere offer a dramatic intensity. The landscape looks clear and deserted, the list of animals that may be roaming there is amazing. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Dale,
    I love this picture of the iconic bridge. I travelled over it last year but didn't manage to photograph it. The light is impressive and the red colour really stands out. The disturbance in the water has given some very lovely and interesting reflections.
    Beautiful!

    Hello Jean Jacques,
    The quality in this night time image is enviable and a real lesson on the importance of a tripod. I like the subdued red lit buildings in the BG with the more brightly lit ones in the FG. The graduated colour in the sky is beautiful and shown too in reflection.
    Fabulous!

    Hello Brian,
    I am intrigued with you post-production technique on your recent pictures (HDR?). It gives a really arty look to them which I find attractive, particularly with a subject such as this. Lovely detail in the ship with gorgeous detail in the sails.
