    Hi Murat
    A historic minaret indeed revealing its features really well and definitely screaming for attention drenched in warm light. It's superbly off centred, shaded by bright and clean blue background. Simple but a strong shot supported by excellent narratives. Congrats

    Hi Janusz
    Certainly works so well for me, a beautiful cathedral with such a peaceful quality and a neat bit of composition with some good light thrown in too. A seamlessly done shot, filled by wealth of colours throughout. Well done, TFS

    Hi Ourania
    Personally the ropes looked indeed messy like a huge pile of spaghetti type mess. This sort of close inspection of a small part of the bigger picture does allow interesting shots to be obtained as your image today shows. Well done.

    Hi Craig
    Well captured, and a good choice of angle to shoot from. You've captured the detail of very eye catching ascending steps and the people give it the perspective and scale it deserves. A lovely bit of architecture and the details on the buildings compliment your scene, Well done.

    Hi Olivier
    Great coastal scape, like how I'm drawn down from the fg and around the corner then into the fading light in the distant creating bit of drama. Just goes to show that we don't need a bright sunny day to get good light and subtle colours, just a brief moment can be enough to make all the diff. That's passing light to die for and you've caught it so well with gorgeous eye popping outcrop surrounded by equally delicious green water creating a wonderful contrasting colour, and the varying tones gives a sense of mood. A superb capture from front to back with terrific exposure. Very competently shot, Congrats

    Hi Ike
    A breathtaking coastal scape with the historic ancient fortress sitting on the rocky outcrop. Lovely feel of vastness and depth you offer with excellent details and beautiful range of tones and brightness. Lovely inclusion of the lone fig in the fg just to illustrate the distance and sense of height this was taken form. The delicious blue tone actually has lifted this to greater height with subtle exposure throughout the shot. Excellent write up as usual. Well done,

    Hi Nino
    You have wonderful eye grabbing pastel sunset colours in the sky to start with. Vivid but still natural, the low key photo - always my fav- is thoughtfully clicked with superb effect from the glowing rail tracks rendering the punch and lead to grab more attention it deserves while maintaining excellent exposure with adequate highlights within the shadowed areas. An awesome low light with strong focal points. Very well done my friend, Congrats

    Hi Luis
    Another beautiful shot and glorious colours showing how this building looks quite Swiss-like and this is nicely adorned with bright red flower pots. What a wonderful part of this building and a charming place, a pleasure to see: so much to enjoy and take in which is brilliantly lit with warm light filtering though those frontage. Beautiful architecture and a fascinating edifice so very well observed and captured. Congrats

    Hi Carlo
    Small beauty waiting to be explored. The path invites the eyes to take a peek down the alley and beyond. Lovely foreground interest and some bright colours with characterful stone wall depicting the masonry detail. Such a lovely peaceful shot, well managed light and colourfully contrast. Great capture, Congrats

    Hi Ana
    Local tradition and wonderful reenactment scene. A nicely low and close viewpoint shot showing the neatly lined clay pots as if this could have been taken at the actual situation long ago. I'm glad you were there to photograph to share with us with plenty to look at and learn. In particular I love the contrast these pot
    created and the atmosphere that goes well with the subject matter. Indeed a well recorded event and tx to the useful notes.

    Hi Costantino
    Feast for the eyes! That is one heck of a view well taken from a good view point depicting an extremely wonderful example of modern infrastructural architecture, which I admire. A beautifully composed and exposed composition, full of illuminating crisp and clear detail in depth. A place certainly waiting to be ventured! Congrats

    Love the perspective and how the statue pop against the white structure and blue sky. A wonderful lively old town square full of people with beautiful architecture framing the backdrop elegantly. Your viewpoint is just great and very appropriate treatment, not overdone just enough to strengthen the shot with gorgeous colourful contrasts. Beautiful, Congrats

    Hi Josep
    People in Colours! It has a relaxed carefree feel although we dont see the faces as well as the sense of three generations combination so nicely spread out across. I settled for a crop, obviously all the interest starts from the extreme right taken from relatively straight on viewpoint and the fact that it is totally unintrusive with superb bright colour coordination. Perfect point of focus and great clarity. I feel that the unity that it gives makes the contrasts. This is a nice idea well observed and confidently shot.

    Happy retirement, hope you enjoy your new journey to the fullest. My Congrats
    Kind regards

    Hi Eleu
    A very dramatic capture almost looks like mono conversion bundled by beautiful range of hues in that great sky and sufficient silhouetted f/g interest.
    The sunburst through a gap in the storm clouds is wonderful adding the impact to the scene. Nobody does light like nature does!! ....
    Superb foto work, Congrats
