    Hello Daniel,
    an original, graphic and very attractive composition that gives us an interesting glimpse into the city and its daily life, even though there are no people present. I like the perspective and the geometry, the fine interaction of the shapes. Colours and shadows play a significant part in this delightful, rewarding effect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Malgo,
    this is a wonderful picture, a very delightful scene. I like very much the point of view showing us what a privileged position in the harbour this little boat has. Its owner is enjoying both a wide, rewarding view of the picturesque seafront and the gentle rocking by the sea. A very interesting full frame with lovely details and colours. I love the workshop picture as well. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Philippe,
    I like the presentation of the elaborate stained glass window and the mysterious, decaying interior that surrounds it. The flash light was diffused in a wonderful way, the interior is visible and interesting and the colours and details of the religious illustrations are very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Wolfgang,
    the interior of this grand basilica is so rich and interesting, I like your choise to focus on the upper part of the view in a dynamic composition that has left out the seats and the floor. You managed the light very aptly, the details and the colours are well defined and pleasing all over. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao cara Gigi,
    questa foto e' bellissima e ci offre una presentazione di Lucca -paesaggio urbano e vita quotidiana- molto attraente. Mi piace molto la semplicita' ed il dinamismo della tua composizione, c' e' equilibrio ed un ritmo delizioso tra le zone che fanno l' Immagine. I colori sono belli ed atmosferici, i dettagli superbi. Mi piace ancora il riflesso sul pavimento in primo piano ed il ruolo degli ombrelloni, che rendono le prospettive ancora piu' piacevoli. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Hello Craig,
    congratulations for reaching 1000 posts on TE! It is a great achievement not only for the number, but mainly for the excellent quality of all theose pictures, for the fact that they show so many, diverse parts of the world, for the way the express the evolution of your work and for the lessons they have taught us.
    This photo is amazing. I like the perfect sharpness in the dark foreground and the softer definition in the suggestive, hazy background. The perspective is solid, the textures attractive and the introduction of colour in the grey environment fascinating. Congratulations again and a big thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    un paesaggio urbano molto particolare ed interessante, questa composizione mi piace moltissimo. C' e' un' interazione misteriosa ma concreta tra gli elementi che hai incluso, l' immagine e la sua atmosfera mi fanno pensare di pitture surrealistiche. Superba la composizione di linee ed il posizionamento della scultura in mezzo ad esse. Fanno parte della storia e della sistemazione della citta', ma i nomi della piazza e della via fanno una contribuzione sorpredente e affascinante. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello Lars,
    the perspective you chose for this presentation is superb, it's great to see this marvellous palace extending into the distance and I like that you included part of the lake and the dark reflections in it too. The perspective, the excellent details and the attractive, moody colours compensate for the gloomy atmosphere and give a particular, timeless allure to the scene. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    a delightful composition with lots of diagonals at slightly different angles. There's a fine sense of rhythm in your frame, the sharpness is superb. The sky is wonderful, complete with this lovely blue and the interesting but not distracting clouds. The clarity and moderated intensity of the light are very pleasing. I like the rich, tight composition in the workshop too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    this picture is so original for its theme and composition, so irresistible for its bold, contrasting colours. I like very much the scene, the little girl's gentle pat on Shaun and his eager "expression". I also like the juxtaposition between the two "Nelsons" -I don't think that a set up like this, involving a Greek historic figure, could ever be displayed in our country- and the interference of daily life between them. Your picture has amazing definition and a 3D effect, especially in the foreground. I think that the long distance between Shaun and Nelson as well as the suggestive shadows on the column, are part of the story. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Bonjour Serge,
    I wasn't familiar with this setting and find the way you present it very interesting. You've given two thirds of the frame to the natural scenery, which looks wild, calm and fascinating. The architecture above looks conservative and rigid, but you've integrated it in your composition skillfully. I like the vivid colours and the accentuated contrasts, the reflections are very attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Daniel,
    a lovely view through this village road, an inviting perspective that draws us into a delightful, quiet setting. I like the arrangement in a spacious vertical frame, the depth and the clarity of the scene. The colours are strong and delicious, each of them signifies an essential element in the composition. The human presence is well placed and very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Christiane,
    Despite the tower block, which I guess is a hotel, the small port is attractive with the small moored boats. Your viewpoint is very good with what seems to be a freshly painted white and red boat. Excellent clarity as usual from you.

    Bonjour Philippe,
    a very fine description of this extraordinary piece of religious art, you've achieved superb sharpness in spite of the challenging lighting in this interior. Details and colours are excellent. The statues' expressions, the moody colours and the layers of dust give to this picture a mesmerizing, melancholic atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    This is very well taken hand held. The empty station, except for the bicycles, is moodily lit. A strong diagonal composition with excellent clarity. The train approaching (or perhaps leaving) adds well to the composition.

    Oh dear I have missed so many of your images. May has been really busy for me and I have neglected TE. This one really caught my eye with the red and green architecture so well placed in the frame. You even have a magical reflection. Beautifully taken and presented.
