    Hi Rob,
    So that was the problem! All those wires are red hot! That kind of mess makes all of as thinking deep thoughts. Seriously, this is a fantastic photo of one of the strangest pieces of art I've seen.

    Hi JC,
    Great looking golden toned vineyards in brilliant autumn sidelight. That line of vines from foreground further down to the left makes quite efficient perspective.

    Hi Mesut,
    Quite beautiful autumn view. That tiny tree in foreground adds good highlights to this scene. And wide angle gives this impression that trees lean towards you. Is the date taken correct? This doesn't look like an early September picture.

    Hi Krzysztof,

    The tree is helping to frame the church. The point of view is showing the details of the architecture of the St.John the Baptist cathedral. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.

    Hi Lars,

    The alley is sending my eye toward the parasol which is creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the garden and of the building. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

    Bonjour Chris,

    Le Sphinx aide au cadrage de la pyramide. L'utilisation probable d'un support et d'une vitesse d'exposition lente permet de voir les détails du Sphinx et de la pyramide. Cela a aussi un effet spécial sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

    Hi Malgorzata,

    I like the reflections on the water. The length of the canal is creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the boats and of the fortifications. The light is giving good colors rendering. Have a nice day.

    La distance entre les deux rives donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les arbres qui affichent les couleurs automnales. La bonne luminoqité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

    Hello Craig,
    I guess most of us are happy to be back on the site. Let's just hope that it keeps running for some time before the next breakdown.
    This is the kind of photo that doesn't need a lot of explanation. It is probably of the "nothing special" category, and that's probably why I like it so much. On second thoughts, autumn colours like these and a young romantic couple are all VERY special. As for the composition the trees are very nicely lined up on a diagonal that creates a perfect balance.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    Let's hope the technical problems have all been solved for the time being. I am in no doubt that there will be new problems later on. The rainy weather can't hide the beauty of this view. The area seems to offer great opportunities for long and healthy walks across the undulating hills. It's a very attractive photo in spite of the haze.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    Why waste energy by flying if you can hitch a free ride? This is a very attractive composition. So many colourful boats, all differently painted, perfectly lined up along the shore and then one in the foreground breaking the pattern. It's a sharp and clear and bright and a very neat photo. What a pity if I had never been able to see it ;-).
    Kind regards,

    The compositions speaks for itself, more or less. The old photos and the rainy day made this a good case for a B&W conversion. The umbrellas frame the view of the large street-shot perfectly. Nevertheless it would have been interesting to know just a little bit about what kind of exhibition this was.
    Best wishes,

    Hello György,
    Lots of people to watch with the painter grabbing most attention. The background shows several attractive buildings and the pink tower is nicely seen in the narrow gap between the ordinary houses. It's a high quality "nothing special".

    Hello Malgo,
    Corfu town was quite photogenic, offering many possibilities for nice views like this but also for street photography. I was there for just one day but enjoyed it. The long lines of white boats and the fortress reflected in the water create a very pleasant view.

    Hello Lars,
    This looks more fun than the average garden. While most of the trees and plants seem to be real they have been greatly improved by the addition of the bright glass sculptures. Art and nature mix very well and the Glasshouse is very elegantly designed. You found a position for this photo where all the ingredients balance each other very nicely.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Chris,
    I think the sepia version looks very much like a photo from more than 100 years ago would have looked like. One of the early European explorers could have taken it. On the other hand the original version looks better than you claim. The heat and backlight hasn't done much harm. What a fantastic place this is.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
