    Hello Betty,

    I almost broke into song, reading your notes.
    This is a beautifully composed shot, a painter's dream, as the horizontal layers filter back into the frame, culminating in that spectacular sky.
    The f/g branches help to create the deep sense of depth.
    There is noise in the shot but, for me, it adds to the mood.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Constantino,

    I am amazed by your notes!
    I perceived the old lady to be hanging onto the windowsill to steady herself on the steep hill!
    Not only does she not have to hang on, she is sprightly enough to paint the steep street!
    A delightful capture, very well composed and with fine textural details.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Asa,

    The monks have certainly done a very good job for the graveyard looks neat and well cared for.
    You have provided some excellent f/g details, nicely angled across the frame, whilst in the distance, the façade of the catacombs looks very interesting.

    Did you venture into the catacombs?
    They must have great historical significance.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Erling,
    This is a fantastic early blue hour shot. The blending of natural and artificial lighting here is great. The reflection is outstanding providing balance and depth for the shot. The lighting is good and the photo has fine sharpness..

    Hola Angel,

    This reminds me so much of a photograph that I took in Bonn, where the road is accessed through the buildings. I wonder if it is a German characteristic!
    Whatever, it works very well, both as an access and as a photographic opportunity. The buildings are quite delightful with their half-timbered frames and interesting colours, whilst the clock tower dominates with its height and clear architectural details.
    I do like how the archway seems to offer just a little more information, after you have absorbed all the information in the f/g.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Maria,

    Although I have never been to Moscow, I recognised this building immediately, as I recently critiqued a shot of GUM posted by Jason. The same building but your shots have individual character.
    The fanned, glass roof is an immediate eye-catcher and perfectly matches the colourful umbrellas spread across the bridge. You have composed the shot nicely symmetrical, with details that are sharp and richly coloured.
    A fine shot for an indoor subject.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Swapan,

    It is interesting to see how these ghats have been built, to assist people to access the river. I like how you have angled them so well, to create a strong f/g triangle, also linking with the figures.
    The rows of boats are interesting in their own right, make good lead lines and help to generate a sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    What a beautiful spot and it certainly has similarities with the Italian version!
    I like how you have used the details of flowers and the architecturally beautiful building to edge the main lead line of the river. The reflections are an additional, very interesting aspect and create a final focus in terms of the 'eyes' bridge.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Claude,

    Who wouldn't smile seeing this charming shot!
    It reveals the natural curiosity and innocence of young people!
    You have composed the shot and framed the little boy with great skill, whilst the details of the ocean going vessel have great clarity.

    This is a stunning photograph!
    You are nice and low, so that you can capture the surface of the sea and the reflections without interruption.

    Wonderful mountain scenery!
    Beautiful natural colours.
    The person and the cross give us a good idea of the dimensions.
    You provided the view of the lake and the mountains with a very attractive foreground, composed of small and big rocks.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You must have been high up the mountain to be looking down on this scene!
    You have shown us the rugged textures of the rocky mountains, with their ridges and clefts, and contrasted them convincingly with the smooth caps of snow.
    What a beautiful day you had, the colours are superb, with lots of contrasts of light and shadow.

    My warm regards,

    The triangle formed by the mountain slope with its reflection has a great visual impact here. Already looking at the thumbnail this picture jumps out!

    Colour of the kayaks make great looking combination which works especially well on your tight framing. And doubling them on the reflections is fantastic.
