    Hi Ourania,

    My first thought upon seeing this picture in the thumbnail size with these gentlemen's position and reading the title, I thought it was a reference to male pattern baldness....you know, that "halo" effect around the crown of the head!? :o I can laugh because I'm working on one myself! :)

    With my last moment of internet access this afternoon, I just had to make a quick note on this one. I really do enjoy the relaxed moment gathered here, and once again, your intuition to realize the opportunity and envision how the natural sun makes such a mark on these two, is brilliant! enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Murat,

    At this size and weight, Peter is quite imposing! I'm sure he was much more welcoming than that would suggest of course, but this is an impressive sculpture indeed. I like how you've composed this to show ample surroundings, especially with the subtle and varied shades of blue as a backdrop. Nice angle too, giving it more of a 3D appearance. Sharp and detailed, well taken. enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Bonjour Cricri,

    This looks to be both a beach lovers and rock climbers paradise. :) I first thought it was a picture from the Seychelles because of the big granite rocks. What a nice surprise to see something so similar...and something that would be a little easier for me to reach. Rich, natural colors and a strong point of view which leads us from right to left. A day at the beach would be adventurous or relaxing in this locale, depending on your mood of course. lol Fine detail and textures throughout, and hey....even some blue skies it would seem. ;) Good day my friend. All the best.

    Bisous,

    Jason

    The covered streets ia an Andalucia "trade-mark" in summer, which can get as hot as 40+ degrees.
    There is an excelnet DOF through, fine clarity and people walking added life and vibrant scale.

    Hi Craig,
    The first of 5 villages from the south on Cinque-Terre, built as the same pattern we see on Manarola and Vernazza. A fabulous blue sky above, bright daylight brought-out the colorful houses. From this town, the trail of Via-del-Amore stretchs northwards through the other points. Charming pic. for a charming place.
    Cheers,

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    After the rain, the place looks fresh and ready for the tourists to come when the sun would come out, as you had written.
    Charming place, dip in the green forest, a place to relax after day's trip.
    Well collected view on.
    Au revoir,
    Ike

    Hello Barbara,
    Fantastic close-range picture of the sparrow while drinking water, and they were distract from the click of your camera - but that brought a superb minute on photo.
    Red color stand-out onto green and blured BG.
    Charming, and very sharp view of the birds.

    Good evening Beverly,
    Vibrant scene over the bridge, the red bus taking most attention when looking at.
    The big arch "fill" pic. space, otherwise would be an empty part.
    People added life to the whole, and managed fine details.

    Hello Agnes,
    A stunning view of the mighty rocks and a cave that made its way through, brought water into a marvelous small inland lake.
    Contrast of the two subjects: the rock and the village, combined well on photo.
    Fine clear details.

    Bright daylight brought great reflection on smooth water, Costantino.
    Good idea to show only half boat on pic., made possible view of the waterferont promenade and houses beyond.
