    Hello Mike,
    A strange story to go with this rather curious picture. I have never heard of him before. 1000 guineas is indeed a lot of money One wonders if he recovered it all in such a short time. He seems to have been quite attached to him. Goodness knows what Social Services would make of it, a completely different world we live in today.

    Hello Silvio,
    A splendid picture of this ancient theatre. I like very much the lighting and the point of view; the curving stone seats help create a great sense of depth. Excellent colours and clarity. A beautiful atmosphere.

    Hello Serge,
    A well composed and well exposed night time composition. The lighthouse, which indeed looks like a giant barber's pole sits beautifully against the inky sky. The pole is a reminder that in days gone past barbers were also surgeons and dentists.

    Excellent point of view looking over this attractive area of the city with the cruise ship making a superb focal point. Well exposed with very good colours and sharpness. Lovely sky and fine perspective down the river.

    Hello Jean-Claude,
    You present us with a dilemma, which way to go next:-) Precisely framed and very well exposed despite the predominance of white tones. The flowers nicely divide the image and offer some lovely splashes of contrasting colour; whilst the lamp provides a good counterbalance. Excellent rendering of the textural detail. Which way did you go?

    Hello Jean,
    An amusing and apt title and a lovely composition to accompany it. I like the play of light across the old stones and the excellent detail to be observed therein. The undecided man is well included; he makes a very effective focal point and adds a touch of vitality.

    Hello Will,
    What a beautiful scene to start the day's voyage with. Very well exposed with sublime lights and a delightful melange of pastel tones. The ripples in the water draw the viewer into the scene and direct them towards the distant coast.
    I did not find Sicily especially expensive, about on a par with the Italian mainland I would say. Certainly cheaper than France for things like food and drink. Although we only saw Palermo and the nearby area, it's definitely worth a visit.

    Hello Carlo,
    The towers of San Gimignano are justly world famous. In this innovative composition, we see them from a totally different perspective and very successful it is too. The wild flowers beautifully captured make a delightful frame for the town seen in the far distance. Excellent control over depth of field.

    A very well composed image that gives due prominence to the three elements comprising statue, monument and lamp. The limpid blue sky makes a superb backdrop. Perfectly exposed and top class technical quality.

    Witaj Krzysztof,
    Looks like the sort of place you can go and cool off and relax during the present heat wave. Excellent light management in difficult circumstances. I like the oblique point of view and the lovely reflections to be observed in the still waters of the canal.

    Hello Maciej,
    I like the tight framing that puts the emphasis on the church; also the contrasting framing offered by the adjacent trees. Very well exposed with fine colours and clarity. A church that seems to be built in the traditional style despite its modernity.

    Beautiful lights and pastel colours for this fine panorama over the City of Light. Excellent choice of the vertical frame. As Malgo say, a picture with atmosphere, taken early in the morning I imagine.

    Hello Malgo,
    We stayed one night in Prato some fifteen years ago on the way down to our holiday destination in Umbria. A pretty little town that I had never heard of before until I read a book on Italian Renaissance history called The Merchant of Prato. I like the point of view, which nicely blends daily life with some beautiful architecture. The rather unusual external pulpit is beautifully decorated and shown to good effect in your picture. Excellent technical quality as always.

    Monreale was on our list of places to visit when in Palermo, but we unfortunately ran out of time. Bordeaux is about an hour's drive from where we live; our elder daughter was over for a week so we naturally went there for her and my wife to look at the shops whilst I wondered round taking some pictures. A beautiful city and well worth a visit if you haven't been there before.

    Hello Nicole,
    An image of contrasts and a very attractive one. I like the point of view looking along the calm waters of the canal with its lovely reflections. Well exposed with agreeable pastel tones and very good sharpness. Je te souhait une bonne journée.
