    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The restless sky has created ideal lighting for this detailed shot of the spire the Holy Trinity Church. The composition, assisted by the sharpness of the detail stand out in this photo.

    Hello Brenda,

    Such a poignant scene! The depth of field is ideal, revealing the names of some of victims in the foreground, and the visitors in the background. I am impressed by the size of footprint of the pool.

    Hello Claude,

    The unusual atmospheric conditions you've captured are very dramatic, especially in B&W. Framed in a simple white mat with gray core adds to the minimalistic presentation. Well done.

    Hello Agnes,

    Where the architect has imbued symmetry in his creation, we should celebrate that symmetry in our composition. I think this is a very good way of presenting the grand palace. Nikolaus Eszterhazy is a name that has been familiar to me for years, since he was an early patron of Beethoven, although he may never have fully appreciated the extraordinary gifts of the composer.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Rosemary,

    An aspect that I find appealing in the photo are the wheels circles and ellipses with different eccentricities. Along with the wooden crates, it is the variations in the wheels that standout. Wonderful shot!

    Hello Stephen,

    The walled city of Mdina appears with its majesty in this excellent composition. The abundance of stone on Malta becomes evident in virtually any photo of the island, and your note puts the scene in historical perspective. It is another excellent package for Trekearth, geography through photography.

    It is the ungodly hour of 3:10 am in Washington, DC, and 9:10 am France. The note will be the last thing I do before retiring for the night.

    Warm regards,

    Salut mon ami!

    Your polariser makes wonder for this impressive architecturale image, darkening the sky with conviction to allow the structures to stand out. Contrasts are great, making the colours so vibrant. I like the proportions between the sky and the buildings, nicely balanced and framed.

    It's interesting to see the geometric patterns against the organic texture from the clouds. This is a destination we rarely see on these pages; you are a true Indiana Jones!... :-p))

    Cheers Angshu!

    Bravo Malgorzata!

    I can understand when someone doesn't wish to be photographed, but to react this way is over the board... And like you are saying, markets are very popular with photographers, they represent good photo opportunities, and the people working there are used to see cameras all the time...

    So unless this guy is a convict, or that is fish are famous for being rotten, this nasty fishmonger is a fruitcake. You can be sure I would have confronted him, because excited people like him excite me as well, and I can loose my politeness very fast when confronted with such a schizophrenic.

    These markets aren't secret military compound, they are open to the public, for the public, and if you wanted to shoot the fish, you should have been able to do so freely. But now this cuckoo offered you a great sample of an over agitated freak, making a storytelling image that epitomizes what it is to be intolerant and a paranoiac kook.

    You should send this photo to the market, so he can see how mad he looks with his knife. You don't exactly look like a terrorist Malgo, he should have offered you a smile and shut the f_ck up.

    I salute your guts for not letting yourself being intimidated. This is not only a "decisive moment" image, it is also an "action shot"!!!

    Kudos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi May Jane,

    This point of view is interesting, as it puts the viewer straight in the caravan.

    The cropping focus on the mahouts and their vibrant colours, golden and red, standing out from the green leaves. You have left a little bit more space on the right side, which is good as it indicates the direction they are going towards to.

    My only reserve is that the tourist seat in the foreground is "optically crushing" the helmet of the driver in front, which could have been avoided a second or two later, when the alignment of elephants would have been slightly different, according to the terrain or the varying distance between them.

    Best regards,

    André

    Salut Jean-Jacques,

    J'aime bien l'allégorie suggérée par cette photo, mais je distingue quelques rayons qui percent la couche nuageuse d'une bien jolie façon, comme un signe que l'été n'est pas terminé et que sa fin sera peut-être meilleure que son arrivée.

    Avec ce cadrage et cette proximité, on se sent directement dans le champ, enveloppé par les tournesols qui nous tournent le dos, plutôt que d'observer la scène à distance, ce qui offre une toute autre impression. Les deux masses d'arbres sur les côtés viennent cadrer le paysage et lui donner un ancrage.

    Bon dimanche!

    Hi Kari,

    A very interesting note for this charming vintage train that seems to keep going strong. The scenery is truly spectacular, thanks to a clever point of view right after the bending curve for a dramatic impression.

    Great presentation!

    Hi John,

    I am not surprised to see Cameron Diaz working in the street; I just saw her less than two hours ago in a very bad movie from Ridley Scott (The Counselor...Pfff!...) and she has now to recycle herself into a different job.

    Although she is covered with gold like an Oscar, she certainly doesn't deserve one.

    But what an elaborate costume it is! I think that your shot have much more merit to present this subject in a natural context, rather than being stoic and static while performing. I also appreciate the proximity, almost intimate, or at least close enough to see the colour of her eyes.

    Well done!

    Ciao Luciano,

    An excellent shot, for the repetition of the arches, the beautiful light and the inclusion of this man walking through and adding interest to your scene.

    I appreciate that he isn't placed straight in the middle, somehow balancing your composition with the door in the opposite direction.

    Very attractive and well captured.

    Salut Philippe,

    Très chic, très trendy, photo à l'esthétique soigné et une approche urbaine dans un contexte tout autre, qui rappelle ton travail avec les stations d'essence, le terminus Bull Creek, ta série à NY ou sinon, tes images plus récentes avec les grues portuaires.

    Si je fais ce lien, c'est donc que tu as une continuité dans ta démarche visuelle, signe de maturité dans cette discipline artistique. Les endroits insolites, souvent désolés, des éléments ou des lieux laissés pour compte, que tu élèves à un autre niveau pour les révéler de façon presque glamour, sous une lumière spéciale ou un angle inédit. Un travail qui me plaît énormément.

    Ciao!

    Hi Blue,

    These rice fields provide excellent photographic opportunities, as they show people at work, and like your nice title suggests, they are a tribute to the ones who work hard to grow food for the population.

    I like the vibrant green and the way the little girl stands out from the scene, thank to her vividly coloured dress.

    The only critique, or rather constructive comment I would like to share with you, is the way people interact together and the moment you decide to press your shutter; in this case, the woman standing behind seems to have her head in the posterior off the one in the foreground, which is not the best situation to put people in context. It often worths it to stay around a scene long enough so people forget your presence, acting more naturally, and also for you to capture a scene where your subjects will create a pleasing and efficient composition.

    Best regards,

    André
