    Hi Silvio,

    The length of the avenue is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.

    A great view with lots of depth. Also the big white house at the back near the sea seems to be a gem worthy of a closer look. But here it's the elevator that takes central stage and deservedly so. Fine picture! Thanks for sharing it.

    Hello Silvio,
    You found a perfect perspective from above. I love the view of the long staircase where people looking as small as ants are accompanied by their long shadows. The photo is naturally almost monochrome in a remarkable way. Only a few spots of green, brown and yellow break the total dominance of grey stones. It's an excellent composition with great sharpness and clarity.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Angel,
    It's a beautiful house, well maintained and looking very cosy with the abundance of flowers on the balconies. The view of the building is perfectly framed by the forested hillside and the hedge. The colours are well saturated and the light is well managed.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kari,
    This is a fine photo but the title is even more remarkable. Most geographical names in this part of Sweden are Sami, but since there are at least three kinds of Sami in northern Sweden I am sure the free dictionary may be confused. It's a terrific scenery anyway, looking wet and rather cold despite mid-July. It's very empty and very exotic.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hi Silvio,
    Very nice high viewpoint to this old town. Direction of light is very good for showing contrasty result. Nice to see those cafe tables down below. People prefer to sit on shadow so the weather is warm.

    Beautiful view of the well and all the greenery next to this classic building. Everything is nicely placed. Backlight works well on this view.

    Hi JC,
    Superb portrait of this great animal. They surely are rare. Good contrasty shot, white tiger shows clearly even on that shade.

    Hi Andrew,
    Yes, that pavillion caught my attention immediately. Very special and modern. And still it is very much in harmony with this classic building. Very nice actiongoing on on the foreground.
    Thanks for the note and the link!

    Hi Malgo,
    Roofs and towers are so rich in details! It was a huge work to build those and must be continuous struggle to keep it in this perfect condition. Those tiles a re so clean and shiny, they look like plastic!
    Green trees in the background look very nice too.

    Hi Krzysztof,

    the wideness of the sea is giving depth to the composition. It is well divided, the sky, the buildings and the sea. The point of view i showing the details of the buildings. Have a nice day.

    Not an uncommon sight in France either. I wonder why these people mostly go in for large dogs; protection?

    Hello Jean-Philippe,
    A precise symmetrical composition that is very appropriate to the subject. Good management of the light and shadow contrasts. Fine rendering of the beautiful textural detail.

    Pretty landscape shot from the Lakes, Will. I used to visit them quite a lot during the 90's and somehow they keep coming back. On holiday just now they featured in some of the books we read (The Wolf Border & Amsterdam), maybe that's a sign we really ought to go back some day...

    Great composition in blue. That it's taken at a local football ground makes it even more appealing for me (even though my favourite teams usually play in red:))

    Excellent post, thanks for sharing it.

    Hello Will,
    A typical "nothing special" photo that seems to tell a story. The man clearly has something on his mind but it's impossible to tell whether he doesn't like the taste of his ice cream or if he wants another one. Two well spotted persons in a crowd, quite enjoyable, not least the woman's purple hair, matching her cardigan perfectly.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Denis,
    The white houses are very attractive and set here in a very appealing environment. I like the layered effect in this well presented composition. Very agreeable lights and colours and excellent sharpness. All looks calm and peaceful now, but on a stormy night perhaps not!

    Hello Ike,
    It's not at all necessary to always "understand" a work of art. If you like what you see, that's good enough. I don't know if this is an abstract or the artist saw something special, but who cares? The shapes and colours are attractive and the mysterious black and white details force is to think twice at what we are seeing.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas,
    The branch hanging down is a good element by itself, but above all it casts a very nice reflection which makes the lower part of the photo strangely alive and vibrant. The diagonal line of small wooden poles is another fine part of this pleasant composition, just as the jetty to the right.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    I guess it's the many signs of European influence that makes the old part of Québec look so nice. In spite of the grandeur of the Château it's the inclusion of the yellow zebra crossing and the persons on or near it that gives this composition its special character. Human presence in a street scene always cheers me up.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
