    Hi Olivier
    Great coastal scape, like how I'm drawn down from the fg and around the corner then into the fading light in the distant creating bit of drama. Just goes to show that we don't need a bright sunny day to get good light and subtle colours, just a brief moment can be enough to make all the diff. That's passing light to die for and you've caught it so well with gorgeous eye popping outcrop surrounded by equally delicious green water creating a wonderful contrasting colour, and the varying tones gives a sense of mood. A superb capture from front to back with terrific exposure. Very competently shot, Congrats

    Hi Ike
    A breathtaking coastal scape with the historic ancient fortress sitting on the rocky outcrop. Lovely feel of vastness and depth you offer with excellent details and beautiful range of tones and brightness. Lovely inclusion of the lone fig in the fg just to illustrate the distance and sense of height this was taken form. The delicious blue tone actually has lifted this to greater height with subtle exposure throughout the shot. Excellent write up as usual. Well done,

    Hi Nino
    You have wonderful eye grabbing pastel sunset colours in the sky to start with. Vivid but still natural, the low key photo - always my fav- is thoughtfully clicked with superb effect from the glowing rail tracks rendering the punch and lead to grab more attention it deserves while maintaining excellent exposure with adequate highlights within the shadowed areas. An awesome low light with strong focal points. Very well done my friend, Congrats

    Hi Piotr
    Great atmosphere with the looming mountain and some bright colour in the mid frame to catch the eye. Love the lead in line as well as the overall picture that you manged the light pretty well there. Breath taking smartly taken, Congrats.

    Hi Luis
    Another beautiful shot and glorious colours showing how this building looks quite Swiss-like and this is nicely adorned with bright red flower pots. What a wonderful part of this building and a charming place, a pleasure to see: so much to enjoy and take in which is brilliantly lit with warm light filtering though those frontage. Beautiful architecture and a fascinating edifice so very well observed and captured. Congrats

    Hi Carlo
    Small beauty waiting to be explored. The path invites the eyes to take a peek down the alley and beyond. Lovely foreground interest and some bright colours with characterful stone wall depicting the masonry detail. Such a lovely peaceful shot, well managed light and colourfully contrast. Great capture, Congrats

    Hi Ana
    Local tradition and wonderful reenactment scene. A nicely low and close viewpoint shot showing the neatly lined clay pots as if this could have been taken at the actual situation long ago. I'm glad you were there to photograph to share with us with plenty to look at and learn. In particular I love the contrast these pot
    created and the atmosphere that goes well with the subject matter. Indeed a well recorded event and tx to the useful notes.

    Hi Costantino
    Feast for the eyes! That is one heck of a view well taken from a good view point depicting an extremely wonderful example of modern infrastructural architecture, which I admire. A beautifully composed and exposed composition, full of illuminating crisp and clear detail in depth. A place certainly waiting to be ventured! Congrats

    Hi Jean
    Love the perspective and how the statue pop against the white structure and blue sky. A wonderful lively old town square full of people with beautiful architecture framing the backdrop elegantly. Your viewpoint is just great and very appropriate treatment, not overdone just enough to strengthen the shot with gorgeous colourful contrasts. Beautiful, Congrats

    Hi Josep
    People in Colours! It has a relaxed carefree feel although we dont see the faces as well as the sense of three generations combination so nicely spread out across. I settled for a crop, obviously all the interest starts from the extreme right taken from relatively straight on viewpoint and the fact that it is totally unintrusive with superb bright colour coordination. Perfect point of focus and great clarity. I feel that the unity that it gives makes the contrasts. This is a nice idea well observed and confidently shot.

    Happy retirement, hope you enjoy your new journey to the fullest. My Congrats
    Kind regards

    Hi Eleu
    A very dramatic capture almost looks like mono conversion bundled by beautiful range of hues in that great sky and sufficient silhouetted f/g interest.
    The sunburst through a gap in the storm clouds is wonderful adding the impact to the scene. Nobody does light like nature does!! ....

    Hi Ryszard
    Your notes illustrate this exactly that, as we can see the clear separation between old and new but the old redbrick buildings is always the winner for me but they add such an impressive overall contrast enriching the whole scene. It's a captivating shot, wealth of colours and detail. Indeed worthy of an effort climbing the castle. Wonderful capture and tfs

    Hi Jean
    Picture with loads of delicacy and nicely aligned vertical so well balanced that really brings out the character within the frame while the second half - the upper zone grabs more attention as main feature. The lower portion complement providing an effective anchor point and contrast. The exposure is exquisite with lovely colors, crisp throughout but the ambient is extremely special. The pov has greatly accentuated the depth, feel of space and height. You did a great work here, an image to be proud off for sure. Fine works Congrats

    Hi Pavle
    What a great eye you have! You have the knack of seeing a photo opportunity where others would just walk by. I don't quite know why this simple coinafon appealed to me - probably the combination of lines, shapes and bold colour. I guess with the advent of the mobile phone this will become thing of the past. A catchy stuff well shot, I love the exposure and play of shadow and reflections - that's my type of car! he ..he ... A neat subject superbly captured, Congrats and TFS

    Hi Ike
    An interesting foreword supported by an enchanting huge Cathedral with a commanding view and there's so much of delicacy and religious ambiente to savour the senses You certainly have an eye for detail & unusual angles & a great ability to translate them to the photographic image with consummate skill. Very strong symmetrical composition, adequately exposed and nice sharp perspective of the building really draws the eye upwards. The warm glow is simply lovely in the evening light that you have brought out to your best. The group of people really demonstrate how huge this edifice is. A grand shot competently taken, Congrats.

    This is a lovely landscape scene with the fog giving a nice feel and this echos the desire to see this larger. Looks a beautiful soft appeal and lots of green with wonderful touch of warm light breaking thru lend an atmospheric composition to die for. You managed to get good exposure. A well taken shot, Congrats.
