    Ciao caro Luciano,

    A fine note and a wonderful photograph to accompany it!

    I love how the full height of the waterfall dominates your whole picture, filling the frame beautifully with just enough space at the bottom to allow us to see the groups of visitors, brightly dressed, admiring this spectacle of Nature.

    A beautiful photograph, perfectly composed and with fine light, natural colours and, as always, stunning details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi dear Malgo,

    Gosh, Scotland seems to be appearing quite often here on TE - Craig has just uploaded some nice pictures from Glen Coe.

    And this is a wonderful picture from a place I would love to visit - those amazing basalt formations and caves on Staffa. A place which, as you say, inspired Mendelssohn to write his Hebridean Overture as well as his Scottish Symphony both of which seem to share he same theme inspired by the motion of the sea.

    I'm not sure why you kept this picture secret for so long because it's a lovely one, enhanced by the presence of some colourfully dressed visitors who presumably shared the same boat with you. The tall basalt columns are perfectly seen too. Did you go into the cave?

    A lovely photograph, perfectly taken and with good light and colours and excellent clarity - a perfect upload for TE with its excellent note.

    Perfect!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    Ha, ha! What a crazy looking building! I suppose it would be green if the irrigation was working - it would certainly be green in Scotland where we have so much rain!

    A well seen and well captured scene, perfectly composed and with perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

    Brilliant!

    Hello dear Mesut,

    A lovely colourful photograph from the beginnings of autumn, these drying corns displaying all of the wonderful autumnal colours we shall soon be seeing in the trees and grasslands in our countries.

    A very well seen and taken shot with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Craig,

    Ah, Glen Coe! I'm going to be driving up through this magnificent glen very soon - on my way to Skye, in fact, and I'm looking forward to enjoying views like this!

    Three beautiful photographs (especially the one of the Hielan' Coo!) which perfectly capture the atmosphere of this mysterious and, perhaps, threatening glen, especially as you have captured these images in just the perfect weather - not bright summer sunshine (because that doesn't suit the place) but in mixed light and with some low cloud and mist about the place.

    I love the play of light and shade which you have caught so well in your two landscape pictures and how, in each of those, the road leads us through the composition perfectly. Lovely soft light and very true colours - so typical of Scotland - perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Brilliant!

    Cheers,

    John.

    Hello Will,

    An interesting and educational note and a delightful photograph to accompany it - a perfect upload for TE!

    Of course, people used coracles in Britain too in the past, particularly for fishing, and they are remarkably light and easily carried on one's back even although they're probably not too seaworthy. I seem to recall that someone once said that to travel in one you had to have your hair parted down the centre to avoid it capsizing. But here we see a veritable fleet of them approaching the shore as well as the solitary fellow on the beach cooking his grub.

    This is a very finely composed photograph, the lone fisherman with his upturned coracle or "thung-chai" squatting over his small fire and billy can while we see the distant busy view.

    Glorious light, fine colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Rob,

    An interesting note and a very fine photograph!

    Just the thing for TE - but why do you need to remove any hints of advertising? When I look at any page on TE I am immediately bombarded with pop-up advertisements, advertising videos and sound tracks which sometimes startle me when I'm browsing in a quiet room - so how can TE be so much against anyone including an advertisement in a photo?

    Anyway, my rant is over. This is a wonderfully bold and colourful composition very well seen and very well captured and in the graphic genre which you do so very well. Not quite sure about the title, though - surely that fellow is sleeping and not sleepless! Or maybe he's dreaming.

    Fine composition, lovely light, rich colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness. And very expert use of Photoshop too!

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Yep, Czechia is just an one of symbols of alcohol trips. The world famous beer, Beherovka etc. make this country more attractive for the guests too.

    This photo from Scotland reminds me your reports from Iceland. Perhaps the Northern islands look same. Anyway this is very interesting landscape, impressive colors and so clever composition! TFS!

    Hello Lars,

    A perfect upload for TE with an interesting and informative note and a splendid photograph to accompany it.

    Just as with your last photograph, this one is stunningly clear and sharp and that has been helped by the glorious weather. The light and colours are beautiful, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness exquisite. And your composition is very pleasing to the eye and well balanced with the towering buildings on the right, the fountains in the mid-ground and people relaxing and enjoying themselves nearest to the camera.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Strange and interesting peek in between the wooden doors/walls. A shrine to Audrey...with a stretch of the imagination I could understand, but what are those tires doing there. Did she die in a car accident? I guess not, but I'll just look it up anyway.

    Intriguing...and well worth the post. Thanks.
