    Hello Jorge,
    What a refined and at the same time imposing architecture!
    You present this palace from a good angle and the lamppost and the small garden make a very pretty foreground.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Great idea of you to climb the tower. You were rewarded with a gorgeous view over the town.
    Beautiful architecture along the square but especially the church is striking with its light orange colour.
    Excellent clear and sharp presentation.

    Hello Beverley,
    A beautiful picture of the old town with buildings on different levels.
    The huge wall which we saw already on your other pictures looks most impressive.
    The three waving flags are a beautiful and colourful element of this photo.

    Hello Lisa,
    What a wonderful decorated and painted ceiling of this church!
    Excellent capture of the sunbeams that fall in in a beautiful diagonal line.
    Even when people don't go often to church, it can be an excellent location to quietly think things through.

    Hello Rob,

    A fascinating note, especially about the artist Richard Pousette-Dart and his works and thoughts.

    But, like you, I am amazed that this group of young people were allowed in this gallery with an umbrella, the perfect weapon people might use to damage art works.

    But this is a very fine photograph, particularly as the light levels here do not look good and the image shows very little in the way of noise. The group are nicely gathered around the painting, the girls, as you say, studying it while the boys seem more intent on either talking or simply admiring the girls.

    A perfect capture of a brief moment in time with well managed light, good colours and excellent details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hallo John,
    Mannen met baarden zijn wel één van je lievelingsonderwerpen in fotografie.
    Het verbaast me steeds weer hoe je al die haartjes uiterst scherp hebt weergegeven. Eveneens de heel kleine rimpeltjes in de jas van deze man.
    De bakstenen muur is dan lichtjes wazig om de persoon des te beter te benadrukken.
    Ik heb bij deze foto een vraagje. Dit is niet kritiek maar ik merk dat veel fotografen bij portretten een stukje van de persoon afsnijden. Soms is dat een klein deel van het hoofd bovenaan. Hier betreft het een minuscuul deel van de muts en van het haar en de baard van de man. Ik ben helemaal niet goed in portretfotografie en maak bijna nooit dergelijke foto's maar spontaan zou ik trachten het hoofd helemaal weer te geven. Nochtans merk ik dat vele fotografen dat net niet doen. Is dat een regel in fotografie?
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Hello, Gert, I know Gouda cheese. Is it relates with the city? As we know the Holland cheese is very popular food everywhere. The foreground looks a bit crowdy, but this is typical scene for this country. Sometimes the Dutch call themselves 'the Chinese of Europe'. The numerous bikes also remind me China. Have a great new week ahead! Serghei

    Hello Ourania,

    How nice that these traditions are still passed down to future generations and that young people can be aware of and enjoy their culture.

    You have captured this moment perfectly with the children in their brightly coloured clothes perform in front of a group of what, I presume, are admiring and proud parents.

    A very fine and pleasingly composed photograph with lovely light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness. And I like very much how, at the top of the picture, we see a hilltop overlooking this school.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Christiane,
    Un paysage bizarre et pourtant différent du plus célèbre Monument Valley.
    Ici les structures rocheuses sont également très élevés mais très minces.
    Cela semble une image d'un road movie américain.

    Hello John,

    The art exhibition sounds like a wonderful thing to see and you have taken advantage of the situation by taking this very fine photograph of an artist.

    Your use of a wide aperture has made the man stand out beautifully sharp against a nicely out of focus background and we can see every detail in his complexion and his magnificent beard. The light is beautifully soft, the colours natural and the details and sharpness exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi, Rob, I like this idea to show a Picture In Picture. Well done. I have been trying to read the title (of a band) on the T-shirt, but I can't recognaze this name. Yep, the umbrella looks like a sword in his hand ;) Best! Serghei

    Ciao carissima Lisa,

    What a lovely and thought provoking note and what a fine tribute to your uncle who was certainly a good looking fella in his youth.

    Your photograph is divine in all senses of the word and you have taken it just as the sunbeams stream through the lantern at the top of this richly decorated dome.

    A glorious image, well composed with lovely light, rich warm colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,

    "Old friend" indeed! And you might have taken the trouble to Photoshop my voluminous belly in your workshop photograph! Other than that, two fine images and an interesting note too.

    I'm sure I took an identical photograph here but for some reason or another I've just skipped over it. However, it's a lovely scene, clearly demonstrating how busy with visitors Edinburgh Castle was that morning. There's so much to look at and examine in detail in this fine image which is well composed with lovely soft light, rich colours and amazing details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
