    Hello Frederico,
    I love the ocean pounding into the beach and the wide desert landscape. Lovely colours and detail - TFS.

    Ciao Francesco,
    un giorno di fine agosto, molti anni fa, l' avevo passato in una fattoria nei dintorni di Siena, forse era una di queste due:) La tua foto e' magnifica, composta da due paesaggi straordinari e contrastanti, uno in terra e l' altro in cielo. Le case e la vegetazione sembrano dei dettagli in una vista cosi immensa, pero' sono sempre interessanti e asseriscono l' identita' del luogo. Le nuvole sono fantastiche, hai esaltato la scena con un' audace ma anche sapiente gestione di contrasti. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello Emilia,
    your gallery features many different aspects of Georgia, you approach your themes in an interesting, artistic way. This picture is most attractive, showing a classic, traditional theme in a refreshing graphic way. I like very much how the old church nestles peacefully amid the greenery and seems to be enjoying the sunshine. I also like the way you accentuated textures, colours and shadows, invigorating the whole scene. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Ciao Silvio,
    un monumento molto originale ed intrigante, ha un carattere affascinante che hai esaltato superbamente con la prospettiva e la gestione di luce che hai scelto. E' una struttura molto attraente con dettagli curiosi e colori che accentuano il senso di mistero eppure non hai trascurato il contesto interessante ed atmosferico. Il senso di dramma e' suggestivo e accattivante. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Ciao Carlo,
    deliziosa e grafica la tua immagine, sembra dipinta e mi piace molto la distinzione nella definizione tra vista concreta e vista riflessa. La tua composizione e' interessante, hai evitato la simmetria assoluta in maniera geniale ed elegante. Magnifica la forza e la chiarezza della luce, meravigliosi i colori. Complimenti e grazie!

    Hola Manu,
    a marvellous, atmospheric picture with a very apt title. You've done the most of the scenery and the lighting conditions, your composition is both graphic and suggestive and the palette you achieved is immense and yet harmonious. I like the perspective and the light shifting in the horizon, great contrast between the still seascape and the dramatic sky. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir Vero,
    I remember the tv commercial, only I can't remember the beauty product it advertized:) Your picture is very beautiful, not only for the marvellous colours it shows but also for its composition and graphism. The details and textures of the tulips are very delightful too. You captured the gentleman with good timing so that the human interest scene is meaningful. I saw your picture with Gigi in her workshop and have to repeat what I wrote her in my comment, that he would offer you another huge bunch if he saw this picture:) Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a very lovely place, it feels so peaceful and cozy, colourful and refreshing, perfect for walking a happy and playful dog:) I like the rich colours and all the trees, even the bare ones. It's intriguing to find a man looking across the panoramic frame, as if waiting for someone to emerge from that side. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hola Angel,
    it feels like the lady has walked all the way to the foreground, reaching a critical point, when she has to make a decision:) Her presence adds a story to the lovely view of the town, so picturesque with the white buildings and the stone or wooden details. Your picture has a strong perspective and is structured with good balance. The light and the colours are lovely. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I like the eye contact that you had with this tea drinker. The yellow turban is striking against the dark BG. A wonderful daily life image taken at the right moment.
    very well done.

    I like this very much. Your artistic eye has seen the simple but graphically pleasing shot. The line of red roof tiles is lovely against the blue sky. Very good shadows and detail. A visually very pleasing image.

    a very lovely and interesting facade, there are a lot of attractive details for the viewer's exploring eyes and the colours are very pleasing. Excellent sharpness, intriguing contrasts and tight framing have added to the scene a delightful intensity as well. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Klaudio,
    it was the same in Greece before the crisis, people couldn't control their order and tables often looked still loaded with food at the end of a meal. Things have changed now, restaurants offer what's left on the tables and in the kitchen to people in need and the "doggy bag" has ceased being embarassing long ago. Your picture offers a wonderful, appetizing spectacle, textures and colours are mouth watering. "Gourmet bag" is totally opposite to and equally funny with "doggy bag". Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great week,

    Hello Bev,
    Piers are excellent subjects with their interesting shapes and colours. It reminds me of Brian's pier pictures from the south coast (I wish he was still posting). The light has caught the roof beautifully making the silver paint shine out. A good diagonal composition with the two people to one side giving balance and human interest.
    Super!

    Hello Eleu,
    lovely shapes and colours, fine textures and good sense of depth and motion in this scene. I like how you composed and cropped it so that the frame looks full and the eerie creatures have depth and space to move in this mysterious environment. The colours are suggestive and attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
