    Hello Ike,
    your point of view and composition are great, they help us realize how important this position was and why it had been used as a watchpost and fort for so many centuries. I like how you placed the ruins in the foreground, they are interesting to study and their perspective leads us deeper into the scenery too. Your presentation has wonderful clarity and pleasing colours. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    a fine across the pond to the bridge and trees that give mid ground interest before the distant buildings.

    Bonsoir Serge,
    I know that pollen can cause serious problems but couldn't help smiling after reading your note and looking at the way the vegetation has embraced the two buildings. This looks like a siege and anyone with and allergy who stayed in or visited these structures would be doomed. It's such a brilliant and agreeable setting, though, fresh and inviting in the sunshine. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello John,
    you must be pleased and rather surprised at some of the reactions that this lovely grab shot has managed has elicited,it is after all a fun shot of two English icons and a rather charming young girl and I for one enjoy it for what it is,warts,scantily clad models and all!
    It`s great.
    Oh, and Mr Talbot`s photo is a definite plus as is your informative and entertaining note.
    Warm regards Les.

    Hello Stephen,
    this capture would be irresistible for me too, it's extremely hard to pass from an open door without taking even the briefest look inside:) The grandness and significance of this building would be all the more enticing. I like the tight and neat arrangement of the diverse elements of interest within your frame. The textures make the facade even more suggestive and the harmonious palette is superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    a mesmerizing scenery, I like the way you isolated this part from the wider landscape, how you gave it a graphic aspect and made its distinctive natural characteristics look like patterns. The backlight led to the creation of some unusual, attractive colours. Congratulations and thank you!

There are distinct details and colours in all the areas included in your composition, great perspective ensured that each part and individual element makes its own, indispensable impact. Beautiful and effective indeed. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Juliette,
    your composition is tight and straightforward, simple and efferctive. I like very much how you filled the frame with this beautiful red facade, its graphics and fine complementary details. The chairs are inviting but the warmth transpired and the faint glimpse of the interior create a wish to enter. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Mesut,
    the work of the anastilosis must be slow and difficult but it has given splendid results already. The view you are offering us is lovely and touching, the point of view from this shady spot is superb, this would be one of my favourite spots on the site. The perspective and the colours of your presentation are wonderful. congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ana,
    I like very much the vividness of this scene, the unusual and bold arrangement that gives a dramatic twist to the procession. It's interesting to see the lady in the foreground and wonder about her role there. She gives interest to the foreground and adds impact to the background. It's great that you kept her shadow intact. I love how you rendered the sunshine, the heat, the colours and the texture of the dirt road. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    mi piace molto questa foto, non solo per la bella vista della campagna Toscana ma anche per la tua composizione sapiente. Hai posizionato l' edificio molto bene, ha un carattere rustico intrigatissimo e sembra rispondere al nostro sguardo. Superba la curva della strada e la sistemazione del paesaggio verde. I colori sono molto piacevoli e le tessiture un po' morbide mi fanno pensare di una pittura. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona serata,

    Hello Malgo,
    this is a city I really love and I appreciate very much this comprehensive view over roofs and surrounding landscape. I've done the opposite, climbed Mangia:) You placed the tower excellently, and offered us a detailed description of the dense, antique character of the cityscape, details and colours are exquisite. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Klaudio,
    your picture is delightful and interesting, your note is a very intriguing introduction to the subject and I'm glad that more photos and information will follow. The architecture is harmonious and pleasing, the sunshine and the bright colours make this place even more attractive. I can't tell wheteher the people in the foreground are Zoroastrians or not, it's amusing that most of them are looking into cameras. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Will,

    First of all - an interesting and informative note. But, oh dear, one of my biggest hates is the concept of "organised fun" and I suspect that the newly developed Natadola Beach Resort provides just that and in bucketloads. Not only will they provide trips to allow you to play golf, but I'll bet they'll have places at this beach which sell European beers and ice creams too, all the time blasting out horrendous piped music. And no children under sixteen? Phooey.

    So this is a historic shot - I'm sure no-one would be able to capture this lovely scene any more. And a fabulous shot it is - and one of remarkable quality considering it's been scanned from a twenty year old colour negative.

    A very fine composition with the two horses and riders perfectly placed near the water's edge, the smooth curve of the beach leading the eye well into the distance and with children playing in the immediate foreground. Gorgeous light and fabulous colours, perfect exposure and terrific details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
