    Hi Angel
    talk about having peace and quiet!
    a very serene, tranquil setting.
    I can feel my blood pressure reducing just looking at this photo and i'm not even there :)

    good positioning with the tree in the top right corner too, just to complete the empty space smartly.

    lovely light and colors.
    cheers

    Hi Denis
    I think i've made it very clear over the years how much i enjoy clouds!!!
    Clouds can make or break a photo - here they certainly make it work.

    the clouds is certainly the most dominating subject, towering over the land below like a mother alien ship ready to conquer the earth!

    nice shot

    Hi Jose
    nice to meet you, I don't think i've been to your gallery before - so its always fun to see what you have taken over the years :)

    and a fine gallery it is.

    I wanted to critique one of your previous posts but since you have this new one, and you havn't been back in years lets celebrate with your newest post.

    who says you need a bright clear skyline, even these overcast skies are wonderful - and sometimes even better!

    the mood has been set and you captured that well.
    I like the rugged and rustic feel of the subjects,
    the exposure is perfectly set in that darker range, no need to illuminate this one.

    Hope to see you around
    Cheers
    Craig

    Hi Gert
    yes, i remember this place well :)

    you know what these people are called? "familiar strangers"

    thats the actual term for people who are familiar with eachother but never really talk to each other....for example people who we see everyday at the same bus stop...etc...

    notice how most of them are giving themselves space.
    interesting social experiment on human behavior.

    Hi Ana
    "What an awful day", but put a camera in our hands and we view it very differently! This is a lovely landscape scene with the fog giving a nice feel and this echos the desire to see this larger. Looks a beautiful soft appeal with wonderful touch of green and nice atmospheric composition to die for..
    You managed to get good exposure. A well taken shot, Congrats.

    Hi Carlo
    A great street scene with the pink buildings as centrepiece grabbing all the focus of attention and the old water fountain anchors superbly. Nicely composed showing the immaculate detail, brightly exposed and pleasant clarity with enough interest around bundled by wealth of colours enriching the whole scene. It's a pleasant shot easy on the eyes, Congrats.

    Ciao Carlo,
    mi piace molto come hai combinato il monumento nel primo piano con la prospettiva lunga la vista comprensiva di una strada caratteristica della citta'. Molto attraente la profondita', i dettagli sono interessanti ed i colori deliziosi, con contrasti effettivi. Le auto sono sistemate attentamente e le persone, in questo scatto, sono pocche. Quella che mi colpisce di piu' e che tengo molto importante anche per la composizione, e' la signora anziana che sta riposando un po' nell' ombra del monumento. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,
    Ourania

    Hi Russ
    I like the glimpse of the workman with all of those stuff around within the limited space of his working vehicle. The man will always be your focus, but some of the things around him are so interesting, like the vertical chains providing nice frame being a feature of the image. I feel the shot portrays the character in his element - all the wonderful features within the constraint and a true environmental portrait. Great capture, TFS

    Hello Noel,
    a fine symmetrical composition. I like how you chose to show only part of this interior, which is so elaborate and intricate, in this way you kept the quite dark view very neat and easy to study. You achieved great sense of depth and superb definition on all kinds of details and textures. I also like the intimate, calm atmosphere and how the soft, "cold" light from above mingles with warmer tones. There must be countless images in this impressive partial view. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hola Maria querida,
    I heard the bad (but anticipated, it seems ) news about the bankruptcy, it has raised worries and debates in Greece too. I hope there are reliable ways to get Argentina out of this new crisis and hope you're ok.
    Your picture has great perspective and layout and you managed to render it perfectly clear, despite the strong lighting contrasts. I find it very interesting but also a little amusing as it looks like a race. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, I hope everything will get better soon,

    Hello Barbara,
    I like this portrait very much, the diagonal posture and the direction of the baby's glance give it delightful dynamism, sharpness and depth are perfect. You used the flash so effectively, details and textures are superb and the colours have acquired such sweetness. The baby girl's expression is mesmerizing. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Christiane
    A breath taking coastal scape showing part of the rugged rock formations taken from such a good shooting angle revealing the immense depth, detail and perspective all the way through. The town in the distant slopes helps to give the stark and feel to this wide view with great impact. Lovely vivid colours, details and contrast to deep blue water sky is simply mouthwatering. Great capture and TFS

    Hello Ray,
    a very effective composition in a vertical frame, that enhances depth and offers us a comprehensive and rewarding view of the scenery. I like very much the graduation of light and colours as well as the striking contrast of the coast in the distance. The textures are superb, gentle movement is conveyed and the sea plants look like sea monsters about to rise from the water. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Bonjour Didi,
    I think that the bad weather had also some nice treats for you, it helped you achieve lovely, moody tones in this photo and made the shadows look milder but very effective too. A fine, solid composition great perspective, sense of space and clarity. I like very much the textures, they look so natural and real. The workshop picture is a useful complement, the whole event must have been wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Ali,
    I like the effect of the strong light and the reflections, they seem to convey motion and add vividness to this still and calm scenery. Poles and sticks display excellently defined silhouettes and look like an artistic installation. The blue tones have substance and are both attractive and soothing. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    this is an elegant composition, its themes are very well balanced regarding proportions and interest. I like very much how the shadows spread in the foreground, pointing to the beautiful buildings. The people add movement and liveliness, they also enhance the sense of perspective and make the skating ring look more interesting. Light, colours and shadows have been managed very effectively, details are excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
