    Hello Alexandre

    A simple and sweet composition, but it is just perfect. Fine natural colours, good division of the frame. I hope your hotel room was as good as the view you with it.

    Cheers

    Good low pov, Denis. Great position of the colourful boats. Crop at the top with the clouds on the mountains is really good too.

    Quite a find, these traces. It is tempting to invent a story, but maybe the animals didn't really meet and they're all safe after all. Who know...

    A fine wintery scene, Bev.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello dear Takero

    Wow, this is another really excellent variation on your theme! Great composition and the colourful background makes it interestingly different again. Excellent dof as well!

    Twee mooie zonsondergangsfoto's, Paul. Het vuur in de lucht is indrukwekkend hier en de silhouetten beneden vormen een mooi zwart tegengewicht. De blauwrode kader vind ik een beetje te veel van het goede.

    Knappe foto & beste groeten

    I imagine this was taken not far from your previous post, this is even more impressive. Superb contrasts and atmosphere.

    Mooie variatie. De toeschouwers komen hier heel dicht. De beelden zijn zo realistisch dat we ons kunnen inbeelden dat ze zich daar ongemakkelijk bij beginnen te voelen...

    And a fine street shot it is, Iain.

    Strikingly colourful. A poor part of town sure, but that doesn't mean it has to be dull and grey!

    Bonjour Serge

    Wow, this is an impressive shot. Superb play with layers, light and reflections. Also that layer of people below is really good. Excellent picture, I still can't completely figure how you did it with the reflections and peek-throughs.

    Nice choice of mono,it`s a very well presented snow scene,the composition is first class with the two people adding human interest as well as scale.

    Greetings Nina,

    Two great pieces of street photography for the price of one. A nice idea, well executed - with both left and right standing as excellent portraits in their own right, but when combined producing something quite special. Nice work, Iain.

    Greetings Ataman,

    You have some wonderful, backlit works in your portfolio and this is one of my favourites. You have an unusual, reflection in the wet stones in the foreground, and the management of the depth of field works well to help abstract the background somewhat. Nice work, Iain.

    A grey sky indeed, but just enough detail to add interest to this shot - good PoV, nice composition and a very nice cluster of buildings around the lighthouse. Good work, Iain.

    Greetings Lars,

    As you suggest in your note, even for those who have never been there, the yellow taxis are iconic New York images. You have a great interpretation here, with your personal stamp in it. A nice, tight crop and the inclusion of three cars for a bit of translational-symmetry works very well. Nice work, thanks, Iain.

    Greetings malgo,

    I like the graffitti and painting, but what makes this shot for me is the contrast of two-dimensionality of the central piece of your subject matter, with the obvious three-dimensionality of the arched corridor leading away and the alleyway in the left of the frame. Very nice work, thanks, Iain.

    Greetings Chris,

    I would agree - not too many night shots seen. Good colours on the building itself, but the ghostly, frame-within-a-frame of the branches at the top of this work are what make it for me. Nice work, thanks, Iain.

    Greetings Luciano,

    A great shot of la Habana. I love the colours mixed in with the architecture in serious need of repair. Nice to see la Habana still has some of the same features that made it so photogenic in the late twentieth century. Regards, Iain.
