    Hi Ali,
    The seed head of this dandelion is perfectly in focus and it is also perfectly positioned in the picture. The unfocused background, with the trees is providing further interest. The colours are very soft and subdued. The low POV creates a good sense of depth.
    Kind regards

    Hi Jean Claude,
    This must surely be one of the most attractive places in Paris, with these uniform and beautiful houses all around. I really enjoy this picture as you have included so much of street life and colours. A very enjoyable scene.

    Hi Daniel,
    This picture reminds me of some impressionistic painting with the trees reflected in the calm water, showing soft blue and green colours. Beautiful reflections in the very calm water, a very attractive capture.

    Hi Danos,
    You found a very good spot for this picture, the church is perfectly framed by the thick vegetation here. The spire is beautifully reflected in the mirror-like water and the red roof is providing a good colour against the dark green trees. A very pleasant view.
    Kind regards

    Hi Craig,

    Yes, it's nice to go to places, especially foreign places, and find the local people to be friendly and not put off by your camera. Did they invite you to have some tea with them or just to take their photograph?

    This is a fine photograph of a relaxed and content group of people - not a "strained" or "forced" shot - just completely natural. Despite your lack of time to dsmount your camera from its tripod or change lenses, you've come away with an excellent informal shot of this little group of people drinking their tea in glasses with lots of sugar - no milk as we have here.

    To me the light and colours look good, your exposure is spot-on and the sharpness looks fine.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Serge,

    A beautiful photograph with fine composition, enhanced by the use of a wide lens and with the edges of the canal making an excellent "lead-in" to the scene so the viewer admires the colourful facades of the buildings.

    Lovely light and colours, gorgeous reflections on the still water of the canal, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness throughout.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Wow ! Quel contraste entre l'eau turquoise et le ciel sombre . Ce ciel est magnifique , et tu as parfaitement réussi à traiter le grain que l'on retrouve parfois dans les nuages noirs .

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    Yes, cars and parked cars and vans are the curse of old towns and cities and an anathema to photographers! How nice to see a street or piazza totally empty of motor cars!

    A beautiful scene with lovely early evening light which benefits from the inclusion of people. A fine composition in which you have managed the light extremely well so that we can see full details in the brightest parts and also in the deepest shadows. Beautiful soft colours, fine textures in the buildings and exquisite details and sharpness throughout.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Didi,

    A very interesting and informative note about this place and a very fine photograph to illustrate it.

    As well as your fine composition, it is the lovely light which makes this picture so special - the way the oblique light falls on the walls of that rounded tower, bringing out all its beautiful colours and textures. The diagonal composition is excellent, the kerb of the pavement leading the eye from bottom right along the street past the facades of the buildings and into the distance.

    Beautiful light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,

    Ah, ha, this is what is locally known as the "Squinty Bridge" in Glasgow but it's not usually so full of people! The crowds on the pavements and the Tour 'Bus add to the feeling of festivities here and I'm pleased that you enjoyed your visit to the Commonwealth Games here!

    A well composed shot with good lighting despite the fact that it wasn't very sunny that day. A fine composition with the curve of the bridge support and the curve of the roadway itself leading the eye nicely into the distance. Good colours and excellent detail and sharpness, especially when viewed at "unreduced" size on "beta" TE.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Les,

    An interesting note and I can fully realise that if those razor sharp rocks continue into the depths of the sea (as they certainly appear to do in your picture), then this would indeed be a most inhospitable place for any sailors and their crafts.

    This is a fabulous photograph which works beautifully in black and white. Your use of your 10 stop ND filter has worked magic on the water, smoothing it wonderfully as well as adding drama to the sky on account of the moving clouds. But it is the light and the strong contrasts on those rocks which makes this both so appealing and yet so foreboding.

    Fabulous light, wonderful strong tones and contrasts, excellent composition, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Trevor,
    Great mood for this well composed shot. I like the low angle of view and the way the little rivulet draws us toward the ruined farmhouse. Black and white was exactly the right medium; superb conversion.

    A nice little anecdote to accompany this family portrait. I like the diverse expressions on the faces and the poses for want of a better word. Good capture with the tea tray to the fore.

    A fine composition featuring this sandy island. I like the point of view with the sand spit seemingly being a continuation of the road. Very agreeable light and colours. The lovely sky helps give the image great depth.
