    Hi Bev
    I thought this might be Windermere before I noticed the location text. It reminds me of some of the photos I took there a few years ago. Sails often make a pleasing highlight against the slopes. Here, you framed the boat very well with the tree, which appears to have some early Spring foliage. I wish you a pleasant Easter Saturday. Ours is heading rapidly into twilight; time to walk the dogs.

    Hello Denis.
    As usual, your composition and cropping is very nicely judged. The sharpness and lovely golden light, plus the reflection of those reddish tones, creates a wonderful, warm, Spring atmosphere.

    Hello Mr Ghost
    This is the kind of everyday life portrait I like very much. The tonality of the b/w finish is just right, and the very slight blurring of the two men behind is effective in bringing into strong focus the main subject.
    Nicely done.

    Hi Stephen
    I can remember those very colorful buildings from a canal trip several years ago. I always recommend the canal to friends as one of the lesser known delights of a stay in Paris. Nicely framed by the bare trees, the late Winter sunshine makes for a lovely reflection.

    Hello Claude.
    It's all about the back lighting I think. I like the sunlight in her hair very much and the pattern of round tables and shadows. Simple but very effective in catching the morning mood.

    A very pleasing shot, elegantly composed and capturing a certain misty early Spring atmosphere. I like the simplicity very much. You placed the subjects well in the frame. Very nicely done.

    I at first thought it was at the beach, Klaudio, possibly during our Indian Summer of last week. Nicely balanced picture, well cropped. No need for any sky here, as the focus is drawn to the boy and then the Ibis.

    Hello Ana
    A delightful photo, showing this lady absorbed in the floral and insect life around her. I like the placement of the figure in the frame and the touches of bright red from the flowers. No need for a sky in a shot like this. Very well done.

    Hello Dale
    I remember Portree. I took a photo there in 1974. Are they not the Cuillins in the background? A pleasant scene with a gentle highlights and some touches of bright colour. The noise doesn't bother me, but it could be a little sharper.

    Hi Jason.
    Good title for a timely capture. Doubly ironic, as you say, when you consider the NO PHOTOS plea. Could be triply if that lady were taking an ironic snap herself. Imelda Marcos is the name conjured up in any discussion of women's shoes.

    Hi Magaly
    A catchy stuff obviously drawing the eyes in that you have found interesting subject so well cropped; the aged rustic wall with all the nitty-gritty carry enough interest to make it an effective photograph as it conveys the local flavour. An interesting piece well exposed and pleasantly coloured and the contrast adds the extra vigour. Lovely catch, Congrats.

    Hi Philippe
    That would be a lot of grass to mow and farm animals l to tender! The house is situated on a beautiful yard and does suit your crop. Great light, colours and overall contrast with lots more to view. Fine shot, TFS

    Hi Ana
    A rich & sumptuous close to Nature shot whatever your comfort zone, the human interest is a valuable inclusion, a dynamic element in the stillness. I like the composition, deep where the natural light blends everything else so nicely and that little detail of reds -are real bonus- nailed it superbly. Tranquil rural scene handled very well. Congrats.

    Hi Chris,

    A beautiful shot. I love how you incorporated the natural elements of the tree branches into a really good composition. It frame the mosuqe nicely and provides depth to the image. Love the tiem of day with warm light and soft pastel sky.

    Hi M,

    A very different type of image from you. Not the typical landscape. Good to show something different here and there. I love the various blue and white. The curves and shape make it very interesting with an abstract quality yet we can still feel the it with the depth and perspective. as it lead up to the top like an opening of the bottle. I think this can look really good in the B&W also.

    Hello Ike,

    A very nice shot of the castle perched high up on the hill. I can imagine the view from up there. Lovely blue sky and green trees all around the hill. Like a fairly tale setting. Good quality image with rich colors and good light.

    Hello Babara,

    Lovely image of the flowers, Not too many blue color flower. Love the lively color, full of live and spring atmosphere. I can imagine a while field of it. But it is nice to see a close up detail of these two stems. The soft background really brings out the sharpness and gives it a 3D quality.

    Hi Rosemary,
    stunning orange color of the walls with the contrasty black stars totally grab attention. It's interesting that the other side of the perspective is very soft considering the color palette and with a relaxed feel thanks to that laid back dog:)Quite a juxtaposition to the energetic orange foreground. Lovely photo.
    Happy Easter!
