    Hi Sergio,

    The path leads my eye toward the ruins. The point of view is showing the details of the ruins of the Tynemouth priory. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

    Bonsoir Chris,

    J'apprécie les reflets sur l'eau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la falaise. La lumière donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

    Hello Carlo,
    This photo has a perfect combination of colours and perfect diagonals created by the bed and umbrellas. It was an advantage that it was early in the season and very few people on the beach. This composition certainly benefits from the emptiness that underscores the graphical beauty.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    You captured the nightly atmosphere well with good handling of the light from the torches. The crowd forms a fine background to the Cantus Praeses who is well isolated near the camera. He looks happy, but is it because this is such fun, or he loves to sing or he had a few beers before the ceremony? Where are the graduates kicked nowadays?
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hi Gy

    Great to have this cantor praeses as my neighbor today! A well worked image, I like how the singer's face is lit up and great sharpness/details on the symbols and signs on the jacket. A fine one, this!

    Cheers

    A creepy scene! But a very fascinating image.
    I like the flatness of the picture too.

    Quiet and serene, a great composition. The clouds are terrif, the central tree too and then there's that lonely tea picker. Terrific!

    Bonjour Serge

    Lots of distortion to light up the scene. Technically this a problem, but on the other it creates a strange, eerie atmosphere, a bit ghost-like...and that effect is just superb! So I end up really liking this one.

    Hello Malgo

    A bit hazy (as most of the time in China), but it didn't turn out too bad, did it? Good use of the greenery to frame the scene. Very ancient-Chinese-poetry-like.

    Thanks for the interesting and useful links to the lift. I didn't know about that particular contraption :)

    Hi Craig

    This is a stunner. The classic poster-type image, made timeless by the old masters of photography, I'm sure you know the shot I mean (the name of the famous photographer escapes me righ tnow).

    Thanks for the bike reflection in the WS, but this one just is so much better, of course!

    Congratulations!!

    That's three great waterfall pictures in a row, and they're all very different. A fine series! Good low light on the red rocks here.

    Hello Mariusz

    Great sky, light below on the harsh earth is very hard, but I guess you didn't have time to wait there for a couple of extra hours, it looks rather hot.

    I was just reading about Humboldt (who climbed the mountain) and Darwin (who wanted to copy him).

    Cheers

    Mooie diepe kleur in de weerspiegeling, John. De wereld onder water lijkt boeiender dan die erboven hier! Ik wist niet dat er een plaatsje was dat "Sifon" heet, wel grappig.

    Groetjes, geniet van een zonnig weekend

    Ciao Silvio

    Another nice one from Spoleto. I must say I hadn't heard from it before your series, now it's on my list of places I'd love to visit. Thanks.
