    Hello Rob,

    It's good to see you posting your holiday photographs.
    I'm afraid I don't do FB so haven't seen any of those shots.

    This is a very attractive and colourful reflection. It appeals to me as I am particularly fond of green!
    Have you ever done microscope slides of plants?
    This reminds me (from a long, long time ago) of plant cells.
    It's a great, sharp, abstract pattern.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Denis,

    This is a beautiful flower, with vibrant petals.
    Your use of shallow dof shows the flower to perfection against a useful bokeh.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Chris,

    It's Sod's Law that restaurants are closed when you most need them!
    We often find that when we are exploring, we seem to decide to eat just after we have passed any obliging eatery!

    The triangular flowerbed is an attractive, colourful introduction to the scene, consisting of very eclectic buildings, all sharply captured.
    Is that a stork's nest that we can see on the roof?
    It's something we never see in the U.K. but often witnessed in Belgium and the Algarve.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    I like how you have used the buildings to act as a natural border to the scene.
    It gives the impression that we are peeping through a narrow opening, almost like spies, but adds a thrill!!
    The tall masted yacht has been sharply captured and makes a fine focal point, with its Norwegian flag flapping proudly!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Christiane,

    Nice repetition of the ^^^^^ shapes formed by the attic windows at left of the 2 green topped towers. Good sharpness and excellent control over perspective. The people animate the scene. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane,

    What a great viewpoint you have chosen which captures excellent details of the buildings and also, creates an excellent linear perspective.
    The beautiful sky adds to the overall effect.
    There are lots of figures to animate and guide us inwards.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Piotr,

    This is not the sort of photograph that we normally see on TE.
    Did it occur to you that it was like something from a James Bond film?
    I'm curious about the tall white structure in the m/g but it does act as a guide into scene, leading to the attractively coloured water and then the arch of the bunker.
    Very mysterious!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    A nice symmetrical reflection in the mirror like surface of the salt pond lake with good sharpness and a good exposure on the white highlights. The dark conveyor belt adds a graphic element. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    I like the shadowed crescent in the bottom left hand corner and how only the extreme top of the falls is in sunlight. Good and innovative use of the drone. Tfs!

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    Sebbene sia stata effettuata una ricostruzione, questo ancora un antico castello testimoniato dalle pareti di pietra casuali.
    Hai raggiunto un ottimo equilibrio con il bene fiorito nella f / g e la figura, posta sotto l'arco, nel b / g. La scala agisce come un ottimo esempio!
    I colori sono belli in questa bella giornata di agosto.

    I miei calorosi saluti,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Murat,

    I like the repetition of the multitude of signatures. The red and white colors compliment ad mimic those of the Canadian flag. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    This is a still from the lovely video that you showed me yesterday. I'm surprised that you haven't shared it with everyone for it really brought to life the prayer wheel, with the dancers contributing to the whole experience.
    Ha! Ha! this could be a great way to keep fit, though whether the prayers will be thought about ... !

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    What an interesting photograph!
    Your balcony leads us easily into the view far below!
    The green slopes give the impression that the buildings are partly hidden in a crater, like something from a James Bond movie!
    I'm not quite sure whether the mist is low cloud or smog but it rekindles memories in my mind of my childhood days, when I witnessed tall chimneys in Lancashire belching smoke out from the many mill chimneys. Now, they are all gone and the land is green and pleasant again!!

    This really is a well composed and very truthful shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Good Morning Malgo,

    The thumbnail does not do this justice. The huge rock stacks are not readily apparent until you open the image full size. I like the 2 viewing platforms at right. Reminds me of the 3 sisters in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. Tfs!

    Witaj Malgorzata,

    You still managed a good shot despite the rain. In Verona it mostly rained when I was there. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the liquid gold and the blue sky. The wet pavement has even amplified the reflections. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel,

    There were some horrific scenes from Belgrade when war raged in the 1990's but that mood is not reflected in your photograph! This is a calm and peaceful setting, emphasised by the barrel and the many flower displays, it is a lovely setting.
    Vibrancy is added by the the roof of umbrellas. What colour they give, no matter what the weather.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Rob

    I like the juxtaposing of the rigid straight lines of the exterior contrasting with the fluid, contorted reflections. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The vertical line at right is well placed on the vertical 1/3 axis. Tfs!

    Nice sunset with good repetition of the boats and superb warm colors of orange in the sky. Superb sharpness and good silhouettes of the parent with child. Tfs!
