    Hello Mike,
    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.

    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 Serge,
    It took a while to work out this picture, but then I realised we were looking at a reflection. Excellent idea to use this traffic mirror to capture the scene with the church. I like the contrast with the nicely textured foreground wall. Well exposed, good technical realisation.

    Hello Pierre,
    A pleasing atmospheric composition with the well managed dappled sunlight. The colours and textures in the old wooden house are very well rendered. I wonder if it becomes spooky at night?

    Hello Will,
    The man puts me in mind of an actor, but for the life of me I have no idea who. The tight framing puts the accent on the ice cream eating couple and you have also managed to lift them from the rather busy background. Black and white would have worked well but then, as you say, we would not have had the full benefit of the lady's rather elegant hairdo. Excellent street photography, perfectly realised.

    Your high vantage point offers a spectacular view over the town and the river. Perfectly exposed allowing us to appreciate the least detail in the scene laid out before us.

    Hello Roland,
    Very good management of the light and shadow contrasts, which often cause problems inside religious buildings. You have succeeded in creating a particular mood, which is very appropriate to the subject. At the same time we can appreciate the beautifully rendered colours and detail in the mosaic work.

    Hello Carlo,
    A pleasant place for an al fresco meal, taking in the atmosphere and watching the world go by. I like the point of view with the church at the far end of the piazza making a very effective focal point. Good management of the light and shadow contrasts contributes to the overall mood.

    The impressive sculpture makes an interesting and effective focal point for the composition. The people nicely dotted about the frame animate the scene and create a pleasant atmosphere.

    Hello Craig,
    I also remember the film but don't recall this location; I seem to remember the music was composed by Mark Knopler of Dire Straits. I like this point of view the best of the three images and the lovely balanced composition it affords. Also, the pleasant lights and colours. Forewarned is forearmed so they say.

    Hello Malgo,
    Even in the days of yore, people practised tax avoidance if they possibly could:-) The framing is excellent, putting the towers in evidence but also showing some of the castle and the surrounding countryside. I like the deep rich tones of the tiled roofs and their patterns. The guy waiting at the top looks as if he has been hanging around for a bit too long!

    The foreground buildings make an interesting and contrasting frame for the mass of the hotel. The passers-by add a pleasant sense of animation. The light and shadow contrasts are well handled and the image has excellent colours and clarity.
