    Hello Ourania - That's a clever idea echoing the old windmills in a modern development. I like the idea of using vernacular architecture as it fits seamlessly into the locality. Yes... I could rent one of the mills for a holiday as we can see from this elevated viewpoint that your island has charm in abundance.

    An all encompassing scene with the 'mills' making a super FG feature.

    Warm regards

    Hello Karolina - I see that you have been a member here on TE for quite a while but have only recently begun to post photographs. Welcome... I hope you enjoy posting as much as you enjoy looking! (Nice introduction by the way).

    This is a nice quality shot with a good range of tones and sharp detail. I am particularly interested in why you chose B&W for this. It works well but I think colour would too.

    Warm regards and keep posting

    Hello Chris - Looking down from a high vantage point the attractively pitched roofs make a fine element here; their orange colours contrast with both the blue sky and the bright whites of the sunlit buildings.

    The market looks busy as the fine weather encourages people to shop outside.

    An attractive scene and what looks to be a lovely town.

    Warm regards

    Hello Les - Your composition gives over the majority of the frame to that marvelous sky and why not? It is a natural wonder. The details in the FG are more that enough to set the scene which is so typically Devon.

    Super

    Good Morning Nicou - The symmetrical shot moves away from being a landscape and becomes a design full of texture and natural shades. You were fortunate that the water was still as the reflections appear to be undistorted.

    Have a fine day

    I like this a lot Olivier - The overcast sky seems to have given the colour extra intensity and the textures in the pavement are a feature of note. I love the sinuous line created by the pavement as it snakes from the FG into the heart of the shot. A scene with lots of attractive elements and lots to enjoy.

    Warm regards

    Hello Jean Jacques - A bold composition where the beautiful old timber framing forms an intricate backdrop to the elegant swirls of the design of the street lamps. I note the colour similatiry between the lamps and the tiled roof. Nice touch.

    A very interesting note too.

    Hello Luciano,
    you have chosen an excellent view point from where to view this colourful scene where the imposing building of the Church dominates it`s surroundings.
    The details of the buildings are impeccably sharp and clear beneath a very nicely rendered sky.

    the arrangement of so many headstones make a fine subject for your mono treatment with the Celtic cross and the Abbey making a fine focal point.

    Hello Satya,
    a simple and quiet composition showing the devastating effect of the cyclone in a stunning way. It's good that you included the cyclist in the frame, he is well placed with the greater part of the destruction behind him. It's relieving to see that the road has been cleared and that someone is moving in this setting with a purpose although it's not easy to recover from the sight. The tonal treatment is superb, the greys are warm and look as if they are on the verge of turning into colour. The workshop picture looks so pleasant and peaceful in comparison to this scene. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,
    Ourania

    Hello Gert,
    the lack of women does not detract from this busy street scene,there are so many other interesting characters to enjoy with the WS of the high schoolgirls a very pleasant addition.
    I am intrigued by the canopies hanging from the buildings,were there stalls beneath do you remember?
    I imagine that light here would have been harsh, so the amount of detail in the shadow areas is remarkably well retained.
    Best regards Les.

    Hola Maria querida,
    I agree to use some Spanish in our comments but I'm not so ready to do it just yet. You can write to me only in Spanish, if you like, though. I hope everything is ok for you these days. I found this picture among the random photos featured on your profile page, I like it very much. You composed it well with the unattended chessboard in the foreground and the people gathered and concentrated around the other one. I like the full frame and the wintry colours, the silent concentration over the chessboard that has brought all these people together. Felicitaziones y gracias!
    Todo lo major y buenas dias,

    Hello Stephen,
    a sharp and graphic description of the building's façade. The architecture is elaborate, symmetrical and interesting and your composition has good perspective and precise symmetry too. I like the bold contrast management and the attractive tones it's produced. The open doorway and the partial view through it increase the scene's interest. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a very pleasant place for a stroll, for spending some time in the sunshine taking care of one's boat or looking for reflections:) I like very much the perspective, the depth, the clarity and the strong, contrasting colours. The blue tones are magnificent both in the sky and in the water, it was a good choice to offer a great part of the frame to them. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely special evening!

    Hello Angel,
    a very colourful and attractive scene with the green foliage providing a nice frame.
    It appears that the budding footballers have the entire square as their own soccer pitch,how lucky!
