    The lovely light has given some splendid reflections. A well framed picture with the boat in a very good position.

    Hello Carlo,
    Clever use of the reflections and shapes here. The autumnal colours are splendid against the green. An intriguing image taken from a good viewpoint.

    Hello Peter,
    a fine and suggestive scene, the almost silhouetted tree is elegant and casts a dynamic shadow. I like very much the textures and the intricate play of light and shadow. The colour of the sky is so subtle and delightful. The luminous spot amongst the branches is captivating, an exquisite detail in the peaceful scenery. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Harriet,
    a very lovely scene, oozing tranuility. Your composition is so elegant, you captured the red sailboat at a perfect spot in relation to the white boat and the jetty. The shore is a discreet but attractive layer, the blue canvas is mesmerizing and makes all the concrete elements stand out and look so light. There's a wonderful rhythm in your frame, fine light and magnificent colours. Your note makes this scene even more inviting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a very intriguing composition of layers in subtle perspective and tightly bound by the panoramic frame. I like how the diverse areas of interest succeed each other from the sea to the block of flats in the background. There's an intricate interaction of warm and cold colours, the repeating patterns of the umbrellas divide the frame in a dynamic and delightful way. The light is very pleasing too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Emmanuel,
    I like very much how you "directed" this mini series of scenes producing a short film. All three compositions are well considered and interesting, the people are very well connected with the setting. The perspectives are fine, the monochrome rich and the contrasts vibrant. I find interesting the challenge to re-arrange the three scenes in different ways, producing different stories. Very fine work, congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Ali,
    I like the way you dealt with the gloomy light and mood of the day, your compositions were affected too, I think. You are giving us hints that make the vast landscapes look intimate and mysterious at the same time. I like how the pastel colours of the delicate flowers stand out against the subdued tones of the meadow and the misty background. The layers of your composition give the impression of depth and are interesting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    I was never able to understand what interest can people have in such spectacles. Of course, the way even our familiar and popular sports are managed in recent years, I think that one of the main reasons is betting -quite silly and corrupting, in my opinion. It's amazing that the people who participate in such cruel fights try to make them as cruel as possible. A spooky and appalling sight presented in a straightforward way, with a dark mood and striking contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ana,
    a lovely and interesting scene shown in an effective, well balanced composition. The little lambs are cute and the little girl makes a superb contact with the viewer. Her glance is intense and intriguing and makes this glimpse into her world very interesting for us. All the details become significant, the natural colours are vivid and charming. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Ely,
    mi piacciono molto le parole che hai scelto per accompagnare questa tua foto, descrivono l' impatto di quello che stiamo guardando effettivamente. Mi piace che la vista e' immediatamente riconosciuta ma la scena ha un senso di intimita incantevole. I dettagli sono gradevolmente chiari, la luce, i colori contrastanti e l' atmosfera sono resi superbamente. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    I can see why you stopped for this one. It is as if the heavens had opened and let the light cascade out. You have an interesting FG with the boulders and the tree placed to one side. Incredible light and photography.

    Hello Ray,
    this picture is the product of an interesting experiment, you processed your natural capture creatively and applied to it a very intriguing mood. I like the clarity and the intensity of the grey tones in the foreground, the next landscape looks so suggestive and mysterious. I think that the colours in the sky look quite bold and strange but I can't deny that they are very attractive and dramatic. Congratulations and thank you!

    The silhouetted balcony and the red and yellows of the sunset have made a powerful image. A strong vertical presentation and a clever idea. A very enjoyable image - like it a lot.

    Hello Eleu,
    a beautiful scene, presented through a fine, simple composition. I love the dark colours and the atmosphere, the sun just touching the horizon and the silhouettes enjoying the suggestive moment. The surfer looks mesmerized, as if he's assessing the surfs, looking forward to riding a few before the sun disappears. A wonderful capture, congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Bev,
    this is a very attractive photo, the perspectives and the way you arranged them work superbly within the vertical frame. Composition and vivid contrasting colours make an immediate impact, textures and details are quite rewarding too. The light is absolutely delicious and makes you linger in front of this view for a long time. So nice of the people to wear colours that match those of the scenery:) Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Jason,
    I like this scene very much, the backdrop is delightfully graphic but looks lived in as well, the greenery makes a lovely contrasting frame and adds another interesting element to the scene, so agreeable in its freshness. Each window looks like a different story and the people are quietly navigating through this attractive context. The idea that their movement across the frame affects and transforms the colours is absolutely brilliant:) I also like the intimate and calm atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!

    anche se il posto e' deserto, c' e' evidenza interessante che esso ospita una vita quotidiana di carattere tranquilo. Mi piace molto il taglio stretto e l' interazione fra i dettagli e le prospettive, le scalinate sembrano come vicine di casa che condividono tutto che accade qui. Molto piacevole la chiarezza, la luce ed i colori. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hello John
    what a fresh and lovely area, a wonderful place for a long trek. While walking across this lovely scenery one must feel constantly surrounded by beautiful pictures and fine aromas. I like very much the depth of your picture, the natural textures and soothing colours. This area looks inviting from what we see in this frame but there's a sense that a lot more is hidden and waiting to be discovered. Congratulations and thank you!
