    Ciao Luciano,
    un ritratto eccellente del rospo che passava a salutarti ogni sera, forse sperando di fare il modello davanti al tuo obiettivo. Ce l' ha fatta, il ritratto e' superbo, catturato con nitidezza notevole e colori vividi ed attraenti. E' impressionante l' effetto del flash, ha dato una foto chiara, con colori naturali, il suo ruolo non e' stato agressivo ma discretto e efficacissimo. Lo sfondo nero serve meravigliosamente per completare il quadro semplice e far spiccare il soggetto. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,
    Ourania

    Bonjour Denis,
    this is a very lovely and interesting place, there are several mundane elements in it but it feels irresistibly romantic too. The overall impression is very rewarding and agreeable and there seem to be countless photographic opportunities inviting us for a closer inspection. Despite the lighting variations and contrasts, you achieved stunning clarity and lovely, well defined colours everywhere. You made a great use of perspective within the square frame. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Neyvan,
    you photographed this picturesque neighbourhood in an excellent way, there's a smooth transition from shade to light, clarity is marvellous, the contrasts effective and very agreeable. There's a well moderated dynamism that leads the viewer into the setting, respecting the layout and the important details that deserve our attention. The sky is a wonderful complement, the colours and the atmosphere are really attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Ray,
    it's wonderful to watch this view and the action it features from a safe place. I love the movement of the water and the interaction with the rocky coast, it feels like watching a battle. The frame is full of dynamism and intensity, the effect of the warm light and the mild colours is very agreeable too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Miro,
    you captured and processed this photo very efficiently. Although the scenery is quite busy, features movement and is bathed in artificial light, it is very clear and bright, colourful and warm. I like very much the way the frame is divided in two, the role of the people and the colourful jewellery diplayed. A great image, congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Takero,
    the men's head gear is less attractive than the magnificent hats the women wear during this traditional dance but the graphic impact of the hats is not missed since the glance and expression you captured is so vivid and fascinating. I like very much the fluidity of the movement and the fabric, the way the clear and intense eyes are framed by many lines and elements. I also like the moderated intensity of the natural colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
    Ourania

    Hello Noel
    an original and interesting portrait of an unknown, mysterious character who could acquire different qualities and interpretations according to the viewer's feelings, thoughts and apprehensions. You captured the glance and the joint impact of the eyes and the eerie face with great timing. You made the most of your capture with a well considered tight framing, and the bold contrast you opted for. The monochrome really makes this graphic portrait timeless. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    I like very much this composition of different natural elements and the harmony it evokes. You managed to capture the special natural phenomenon, the colours of the hour and the suggestive atmosphere in a simple and effective composition. We get a fascinating impression and, although the view is really wide, it also feels intimate. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Paja,
    this place is lovely and pleasantly moody, surely it seemes even more inviting to people who love fishing at a natural post and in peace. I like the way you composed your picture with the little path in the foreground and including both banks in the vertical frame. The textures and the autumnal palette are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,
