    Hello Gladys,

    This is a beautiful portrait of this pair of fine Shire horses, all dressed and shackled up for work.

    What I love most about this picture, apart from the lovely subject matter, is the gorgeous soft light which, coming from the side, illuminates the heads of the horses beautifully as well as their legs, bringing out the lovely colours and textures of their forms perfectly.

    A beautiful portrait with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Gert,

    This photograph is of even better technical quality that your last posting - the details here are stunning, even on the full-sized version on "beta" TE. And the light and colours are remarkably good too considering that this is a scan taken from a forty year old colour slide.

    But what's more interesting is the scene itself - a scene that nowadays must certainly have changed so very much. And a scene from much happier times in Kabul.

    There's so much detail here that we can sit and examine just so many of the people in this image. Remarkably, they all appear to be men but their dress seems to be quite varied. Most, to me at least, appear to be wearing what I would consider to be "traditional" garb with some form of headdress from folded cloth, like a miniature turban - but one or two - like the man in centre foreground - is wearing a more western style jacket and a cloth cap - while the man behind the man at left front appears to be wearing a collar and tie and a suit.

    A fascinating shot of everyday life with tons of interest and lots to see and examine in close detail.

    And, of course, a fascinating note about your varied and troubled peregrinations in these parts.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Claude,

    This is a really "fun" picture and I can imagine that these festivities were interesting and enjoyable to watch too.

    Although you apolgise for the picture not being quite so sharp as it might have been, nonetheless we can still see lots of detail amongst the dancers and the crowd - especially the dozens of people with cameras and 'phones trying to capture this moment. And that bald man's shiny head is brilliantly sharp too!

    Good light and colours,a strong composition and very good sharpness considering that this must have been taken very quickly.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
