    Hello Jean,

    It's great to go to places like Cornwall as there are many NT properties to visit. Here, in Lancashire there are about 3 in the whole, large county!

    This is a beautiful house, full of period charm and with a garden that immediately brings to mind ... 'How many kinds of wild flowers grow in an English country garden! ...
    I really like how you have included the garden for it is all part of the beautiful setting. You have created good leads to guide us inwards and included a well positioned figure to add human interest.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    The sea looks wild!
    How good that you have captured its temperament in a still photograph! There is a wonderful dynamism from the waves as they explode on the f/g rocks. I almost ducked when I opened your photograph!
    Bass looks a lonely place and perhaps difficult to access at certain times of the year! In your photograph, it is very well placed, looking totally isolated in the vast expanse of water!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)
    John, I'm asking for some of your expertise. I added my last photograph to the wrong TE meeting and can't delete it. Any ideas?

    Hello Carlo,
    A very elegant composition from such a long distance that the white "balls" have formed a pattern that creates an interest in the wide empty field. I like the yellowish tones of the field and its contrasts against the green hillside and foreground.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    A beautiful view with fine reflections. The line of buoys creates a fine diagonal which adds a surprise and different colours to the composition.

    Hello Ana,
    The goats are so tightly packed that they have almost lost their natural shapes and have become like a kind of abstract pattern. It must have been a fascinating experience for you. The fine light, the shady background and the haze of dust create an exciting atmosphere. The colorful "balls" brighten the background, but what are they?
    Kind regards,

    I am surprised you got this marvelous whole image of the piece without nobody invading the space. when I saw it there were dozens of oriental tourists in front it and I gave up the idea of take a shot. very nice image.

    Hello Jean,
    An excellent and very attractive photo of the forest and the mountains. The small tree to the left gives a balance to the composition and the footsteps lead my eyes towards the larger trees, as well as adding a sign of human life. The exposure is perfect and the colours are very well saturated.

    Hello John,
    What a very lonely place, ideal for a hermit, very bad for prisoners and hopelessly boring for anyone serving the lighthouse. In a photo like this I would have been very worried to see any people included, especially colorful children :-).
    The waves smashing onto the rocks serve the same purpose of adding an interesting foreground and a kind of life, although not human but the forces of nature. I imagine this must have been a fairly tough place for you too in the wind and the spray of water. That didn't stop you from taking a perfectly sharp and well exposed photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    It's a wonderful cathedral and you did well to fit so much of it into the picture, even though the tower seems a bit twisted. Superb light and colors.

    This is a very charming composition of the boys working hard to row their boat. The reflections are beautiful and the black tyres are graphically very attractive. Another excellent observation.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a fascinating photo of the saleswoman sitting behind the steam reading her newspaper. Along with the workshops you give us today a very interesting and informative set of photos that also happen to be attractive and amusing. I know you have thousands of photos that you are eager to show but it is still a bit difficult to understand how you could keep these for almost five years. (I know, I have complained about this before ;-)).
    Kind regards,

    My first impression was how neatly the church fits into your frame.
    It is both imposing and impressive as its strong form points unsurprisingly towards Heaven!!

    Hello Christian,

    I read Gildas' comments with interest.
    It did explain a problem, for when you use a different computer and monitor, there can be very subtle differences in the colours!

    That aside, this is a very well composed photograph. You waited for just the right moment so that the line of the boats makes a very natural lead to the waiting gap in the city walls, which itself is very strongly positioned in frame.
    What a beautiful day for the shot, too, with billowing clouds making a great backcloth to La Rochelle.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Paul,

    You are right, the thumbnail did not look in the least appealing, with large portions of blankness! But, knowing the photographer is what is important and so ... we look!
    It is truly a fascinating place.
    That is what is so important about TE, to experience places that you know you will never see personally!
    The couple are very important to the understanding of the place and are perfectly placed in the frame.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
