    Hi Les
    know the Cornish Launceston well and it is so different to this antipodean one. I suppose a tad warmer than the Cornish one in January, but equally as beautiful and impressive. A super fine image and gloriously composed shot. Fascinating!

    Have a pleasant weekend - B.

    Hi Bev
    living in a seaside town with it fair share of seafarers I can identify with this image and the motive. Being a landlubber I always admire the way people just take to the waters despite the weather, and in this setting can see why too! It is beautiful and composed impeccably.

    Hello Kamila,
    I have to admit to not having been to Liverpool and probably the only UK city that I haven't visited. The light is superb in this stormy weather giving depth to the image. Perhaps the tilt needs correcting but nevertheless a superb shot.

    this is superb! I love the POV and irresistible symmetry here and the use of monochrome is inspired. It is a fabulous looking building and this fine capture does it full justice. Well done!

    Ciao Romano
    never think of Rome having modern architecture amongst its beautiful antiquities, so this is a surprise. It is an unusual design but pleasing on the eye. I like the way you have composed this and the magical reflection adds that little piece of originality to the image. Well done!

    Hello Nicolas,
    Wow - this is superb. The shaft of red light against the mountains is captivating. The silhouettes on the shore front are very sharp and make an interesting FG. Taken at just the right moment.

    Hello Magaly,
    We step back in time when viewing this wall. The faded colours make an attractive image especially against the textures of the old wall.
    Very well seen and taken.

    You managed the difficult light here very well. The pattern of the window is well silhouetted and there is nice detail in the courtyard. A interesting view of these cloisters.

    Hello Chris,
    When we took a boat ride on Tonle Sap in 2012 we were the only tourists which seemed strange. It is an amazing place to visit and view a different way of life. I love the way that you have captured the colours of the village on stilts and the boat. The multi-coloured umbrella is a nice added touch.
    A super image.

    Hello Mesut,
    You chose the best viewpoint I think to take these very pretty white tulips. There is lovely shadow detail and the colours are excellent. The darker base really helps the eye to concentrate on the lines of tulips.
    A glorious spring picture - TFS.

    Hello Romano,
    It is interesting how blocks of concrete can be made to look either very attractive or very ugly. This one I see has one prizes. I particularly enjoy the way that you have photographed this by catching the reflection in the windows. The lovely graduated blue sky makes a super BG.

    Hello Brian,
    A sublime and sophisticated photo of the last light touching the horizon. My eyes are drawn to the golden light touching the ripples on the beach just adding that little bit extra to an already beautiful satin finish the sands. The simple elements have come together perfectly through your expert eye.
    Love it!

    Hello Brenda,
    This is an unusual and creative reflection and I love the way that the man in the red jacket is passing between the buildings. The dirt and texture of the pavement gives a gritty impression which I like very much.
    Very well observed and taken picture of New York.

    This is delightful and nice to see such an unusual 'portrait'. The young boy is clearly inquisitive and he is very well framed by the window.

    Hey Jay Cee!

    Stepping into dangerous territory here big guy! Imelda Marcos syndrome is not an area of the female psyche that us blokes will ever get out heads around, so you are in a no win sitto here mate. You are definitely on your own with the quip about them being the only thing that can be worn no matter how much overindulgence, though! - Brave Boy. Mind you I thought feet got fat too like hands and fingers!
    Like the colourful irony of this shot on both levels it is typically "Cowlingesque". The bar sounds interesting too! Looks like it is in Iowa, not sure. So your mission, if you choose to take it, is to visit this bar and report back, or is it already on your list of megabajazillion things that you have on your Easter plate. Whatever you are up too - enjoy and don’t get too much chocolate and cream on your fingers ;-))))))

    Hi Bev
    I thought this might be Windermere before I noticed the location text. It reminds me of some of the photos I took there a few years ago. Sails often make a pleasing highlight against the slopes. Here, you framed the boat very well with the tree, which appears to have some early Spring foliage. I wish you a pleasant Easter Saturday. Ours is heading rapidly into twilight; time to walk the dogs.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Denis.
    As usual, your composition and cropping is very nicely judged. The sharpness and lovely golden light, plus the reflection of those reddish tones, creates a wonderful, warm, Spring atmosphere.
