    Hello Will

    I really like this - it has a good feeling of compositional balance and tells the story of the fishermans life to some extent too.

    I imagine this beach would have looked very different back in the Vietnam war. But thankfully "Colonel Kurtz, he dead."

    Cheers

    Hello Ike

    I have to say this looks like a work of art in its right and goes beyond the idea of graffiti alone. Given all of your photos like this it seesm Israel has some amazing street art and graffiti these days. I like this very much.

    Great shot - the contrast between the red and blue makes this image really stand out. It coudl almost be an impressionist oil painting. Fantastic.

    Ciao Carlo

    I like this shot very much. It is creative and artisitic and verty much the kind of shot I like. I particularly like the distorted refelctions that give it a fluid surreal qualiy that contrasts so well with the formal structures of the surrounding buildings.

    Fantastic

    Cheers

    Hello Gy

    Thanks for favouriting my shot. Appreciated.

    I like the wide angle distortion of this image and the way the man elongates as if he is going to step out of the picture. The lines and angles all add to a sense of depth and scale and the poster provides a focal point for the eye. I think it works very well in B n W too and has good tonal range.

    Cheers

    Ciao Luciano

    These are famous falls which have been well photographed down the years. I woudl like to go there one day but I read an article recently that said Icelend was becoming overrun with tourists - so maybe I will wait until they go home first!

    The inclusion of the tourists here though gives a great sense of scale to the falls - I imagine you coudl feel the force and power of the water as you stood near them making this a dramatic visit.

    Cheers

    Hello Sven

    Nicely composed shot with good lines and shapes - gives it a graphic quality.

    I wonder if these chalk cliffs were once connected with the whote cliffs of Dover? It woudl be an interesting pro-European argument here in the UK, to point out that we once part of the European mainland!

    Hello John

    Great portrait - this woman has beautiful eyes and has clearly been eating too much liquorice! Still she managed not to dribble any on her white top - a useful skill ;)!

    I don't know about your camera club - but from what I recall camera club judges were always hot on having no words jumping out of a shot since apparently they distract. Depends on the overall image and context I suppose and the word fringe her does draw my eye from her as a main subject but then I could also interpret it as a reference to the festival to place this image in context. It might also be a tip for portrait photographers - move the fringe away from the face, which given that she has no fringe here enhances her beautiful eyes as a main focus.

    Have a great day.

    Bonjour Serge

    A very good viewpoint with great colour temperature and tones. It makes the image feel like a painting. Nicely observed.

    Un très bon point de vue avec une grande température de couleur et des tons. Il rend l'image se sentir comme une peinture. Joliment observé.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Yes this is an ideal low light siotuation though the light on the doors is the best light - it would have been great if the guy was situated in that light. The left side of the shot looks almost monochrome whilst his colourful clothes and wares contrast strongly with it making this almost a split tone image in some ways. I lie it very much for that fact and the light. A well observed shot.

    Cheers

    Hello Gert

    I like this becasue it presents an image of a reality that we don't often get to see in the media or on TE with its picture postcard fare (something I am becoming increasingly guilty of submitting sadly).

    I pity the poor fellow who has to pedal. But maybe we will see these young men again touring with the Georgian State circus as trick cyclists!

    The infrastructure reminded me of parts of Russia too, so the Soviet connection is an easy one to imagine.

    Cheers

    Hello Bev

    Despite your concerns in your note I think you have chosen the best viewpoint to emphasise the lines of the horse here. It really leaps out of the photo and has a slight 3D feel to it.

    A fitting tribute to an animal in a country where eating horse meat is considered non-taboo. This could be a statue suggesting that horse meat should be canned! Where did Shergar go?

    Cheers
