    Hi Carlo
    its for scenes like this one that attract me so much to Italy - I can't wait to get there. I'll be in Rome and Venice in June :)

    beautiful skyline to contrast the yellow sandstone colors that dominate, its a fine blend of the two.
    love the choice of the slight angle too.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hello Jason,
    the contemporary architecture offers so many opportunities for imaginative photography. This one is a gem! Lovely and sharp with first class exposure giving a super interplay of light and shadows with interesting colours. Very dynamic - excellent!
    Best wishes,

    Hi Roland
    although the scene is a simple set up with 1 solitary person, its actually eye catching.
    the large oversized white border, the shadow extending to the right all work well visually.
    nice shot all around

    Hi JJ
    now this is my type of photo and scene :)

    well framed and composed inside the square.
    although we can't tell this is from Amsterdam, I can certainly see it being from there.

    really like the full on grey paint.

    Que lindo es tu país, y que paz se respira en él.
    No me extraña tu nostalgia y añoranza de estar allí con tús seres queridos, en estas fiestas señaladas, mi querida Eleni.
    Para mí son unos días un poco tristes, pues mamá se llamaba Soledad y era su Santo, ahora no se encuentra entre nosotros, aunque yo la recuerdo con cariño.
    La imagen que nos presentas es muy hermosa y con unos colores encantadores como es habitual en tus trabajos,
    Me gusta mucho, el encuadre y las proporciones en el corte del disparo.
    Deseo que estas fiestas de Pascua, las estes pasando tranquila y bien acompañada, pues te lo mereces.(tu trabajo es de admirar y muy intenso)
    Muy buenas noches y dulces sueños.
    Besos,
    Pili

    Καλησπέρα Ελένη,
    μια πολύ όμορφη και ευχάριστη παρουσίαση της ελληνικής φύσης την άνοιξη, μια εικόνα γεμάτη άνθη. Πολύ καλό βάθος και εξαιρετική ευκρίνεια. Τα χρώματα είναι έντονα και ωραία, το φως του μεσημεριού έχει μια ιδιαίτερη γλυκύτητα, φιλτραρισμένο από κάποιο συννεφάκί. Θαυμάσιες οι υφές αλλά η ζωντάνια της εικόνας σου ανακαλεί ακόμα και τα αρώματα που αναδίδονται σε ένα τέτοιο σκηνικό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, Καλό Πάσχα με νέες όμορφες αναμνήσεις!

    Hello Subhendu,
    an elegant and delightful composition that presents an iconic scene of hard work on the field. The ploughman and his oxen stand out as 3D, they are wonderfully touched and highlighted by the light. I also like the way the light reflects on the water, giving it a silvery glow. The fresh, green background is a pleasing part of the composition that adds meaning and provides contrast too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely week,

    Hi Ike
    there have been many new photos of Strasbourg on TE lately, and alot of them have shown the not-so-touristy side of the city...thats a good thing too.

    Its opening up the city into newer views, just like this one.

    I take it those towers were once used as defense positions with gunners or look-out posts.

    interesting shot of the town, cheers

    Hey Jason
    I know you're away for a week or so but i still wanted to comment on this one.

    I guess women could say the same thing about men...what is it with our obsession about cars (not every guy though). I fit in that category - i love cars. If i won the lottery i'd need a 10 car garage just to fit the new cars i'm gonna buy :)

    my theory about 'no photos please' actually translated into english means - 'please take as many photos as you like' lol

    don't you love those old comic book styles, with the large red dots for the skin...thats so classic.
    Fun shot here, perfect!

    take it easy, don't work to hard.
    cheers

    Bonsoir Didi,
    I'm very glad this old flourmill is so well preserved and continues its life, even through another role. Your presentation is wonderful, the panoramic frame exalts the style of the building and the significance of the elements that surround it. Wonderful textures and colours, very pleasing light and fine reflections. A very rewarding photo, congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely week,

    Hello Noel,
    such an imposing and fascinating school building with long and important history too. The perspective of the Castle and the arrangement of all the elements that surround it in the frame are superb. A deep and graphic foreground, fine, sharp textures and lovely, moody colours make this view so atmospheric and attractive. Very fine work, congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, Happy Easter to you and your dear ones!

    Hi Christiane
    Happy Easter :)

    this is one of those scenes that could be photographed all over the world, but it certainly doesn't take away from the scene itself.

    love how the water is so green in the reflections too.
    excellent contrast with the brown tree trunks.
    enjoy your day

    Hello Paja,
    a very lovely landscape, I like very much the depth of your composition, there's a delightful and interesting arrangement in your frame. You captured the colours, textures and atmosphere of the rainy day very effectively. There's great sharpness in the foreground and a fine mist in the background. The deep, natural colours are superb, even the smell of the damp earth is evoked. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, Happy Easter for you and your family!
