    Hi Tiffany
    A beautiful example of craftsmanship full of minute detail on the grainy textures to the wood. It's a good close-up inspection, so well recorded, as are the subdued and weathered colours glad you did not feel inclined to enhance their saturation. A standout shot in such a tranquil setting,,,
    Superb shot, Congrats

    Amazing and impressive dwelling on the slopes being surrounded by such lush greenery with breath taking mountain view in the back drop. Excellently composed shot, beautiful colouring and the heavy sky & low clouds make it a real beauty. I is certainly worth being up there and I can share your feel. Beautiful! Congrats

    Hi Christiane
    An idyllic location, an impressive coastline guarded by the ancient tower! beautifully photographed, it is sometimes great to venture as this shows. This portrays the fabulous detail in a most interesting location seen from an elevated pov showing the scale nicely and that craggy coastline very well which give a pleasing lead in to the white boats. Lighting is superb brings out some very gorgeous colours. Great shot, good composition and nice to view with splendid contrast, Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    Fantastic, really works well in mono and this is about strength, power and sensation of the waves. We can feel the force of it here, I love the textures which seem to change wherever you look closely; wonderful and so different, the light and tones through the wave are beautiful. Good shutter speed to freeze the water and the dynamism of the whole scene.

    I think all we have to do is capture the power and we have free, clean energy. Forever.....
    Congrats

    Hi Eleu
    That's not the wicked fairy putting a spell on the spinning wheel for Sleeping Beauty to ***** herself on? Sorry, just getting into panto mood!! A very Renaissance feel to this image Elue, love spinner's dress is so delightful and great that she never noticed the “intruder” with the camera. I think this Festival has provided you with lots of material, this is an excellent happy candid shot of the spinner 'at work' colour and lighting is sublime too, Great shot. TFS

    The lovely rustic wall acts as a strong complementing element to the intriguing olde worlde fountains coupled by vividness of the buildings. I love the mass of textures registered as well as the fig fits nicely and clinches the shot. It suits the mono version really fine. Wonderful humble rural image worthy the effort. Congrats and TFS

    The wonderful dramatic sky occupies most of the frame as it rightfully deserved and what a splendid colour contrast it turns out to be - it's mouth watering indeed.
