    in fact the option for black and white was smart here. you did an excellent framing using well the shapes and lines of these doors and the image of the women. I liked the sense of expression of their faces. sad portuguese population are becoming so older and there are few young people...

    take care

    Hello Maciej,
    The red gondola gave you a perfect foreground for this photo of the beautiful palace. A green and a blue gondola are seen closer to the palace, adding to the very colorful scheme of this bright composition. There is a good balance between the nearest gondola, the palace and the trees along the shores.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    The lady in red (and blue) is a nice eye-catcher in this bright and sunny photo, but she gets some competition from the red door in the pink wall and the flags hanging across the yard (like Buddhist prayer-flags). The entrance to the church is in the shade but is still an obvious focal-point, partly thanks to the eagerness expressed by the red lady walking towards it.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Claude,
    This photo captures the excitement surrounding the competition very well. To me the hands stretched out and the man running beside the cyclist are the essence of the photo, more important for the composition than the cyclist himself. I also like the diagonal underscored by the long shadows and the white lines.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    nice details of this canal, we can appreciate people enjoying the area in their kayaks and the other details of the area too. I guess the tittle of the image is wrong (canal instead of channel).

    Hello Burak,
    Beautiful, patient animals in colorful "dresses". They are well captured in beautiful light among some human activities at the foot of one of the great pyramids. It seemed to be a quiet day with not many tourists. Probably these days there are even fewer visitors, so life is tough for the owners of the camels.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ana,
    The dog poses well and gave you a fine foreground. I would expect a dog like this, guarding sheep and goats, to be a bit aggressive, but maybe even an angry dog can be bribed with sandwiches. At least the scenery looks nice and wild.
    Kind regards,

    A mildly colorful view with nice balance between the dark green trees, the dark yellow field with some green streaks and the light yellow area in the foreground. The dark clouds fit into this palette quite well.

    Hello John,
    It's an unusual stage for an opera singer but a good place for a street photographer. She is well surrounded by the blue doors, the posters and CD's and the glimpse of the staircase, and you captured her in a quite expressive gesture. The light is surprisingly good for a place like this. I wonder why a professional and relatively acclaimed artist is doing this. Is the market for opera singers so tough that she desperately needs the money (and how much can she get here?), is she doing it just for fun or is it an attempt to popularize this kind of music by bringing it to an audience that would probably not often get in touch with operas? Judging from the video it should be frustrating to perform in such a relatively noisy environment.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Maciej,

    You waited patiently to get this gloriously coloured, red boat in exactly the right place for your composition. It is an eye-catching focal point and makes an excellent introduction to the scene of the lake, the parkland and, of course, the beautiful palace.
    Excellent colours and a great dof.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Gigi,

    Bruges is such a beautiful place.
    As I write this, I can see on my wall, a picture that we bought off a local artist, which shows this scene but with more tranquil water, showing fine reflections.

    You have composed the scene well, so that the boat and the tree, on the corner, are placed on the thirds line. We have a dual aspect, maybe to follow the boat to the bridge or look back down the canal to the church tower.
    Even though the light is a little dim, you have controlled it well to get good colours and definition of the buildings.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)
