    Hello Gyorgy,

    Sometimes, the least prepared shots are the ones that you enjoy the most.
    This was very impromptu; but we have all done it!
    The cropping is extremely effective, giving a strong composition and removing all unnecessary distractions.
    The couple grab first attention but the tailgating photographer creates more of a narrative and builds up the humour.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jorge,

    You really have treated us to some excellent views of Greece!
    The white houses seem to be snuggling up as friends do when out together!
    The rising mountain looks too rock for buildings and yet, the three religious buildings edge it as if inviting people to venture up, where they can use the building as resting points until the reach the summit!
    It's a beautifully composed photograph.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    In warm countries, such as Italy, the building of fountains would be important both for drinking and keeping cool! This one was obviously extremely important because of its size; six spouting lions bring a lot of water!
    I like your quite unusual viewpoint, looking along, rather than at, the fountain so we can appreciate its context.

    I see someone else is busy with a camera in your photograph!

    Ciao,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Sergio,

    I am involved with the flower festival in my village so would love this abundance of flowers! The size an colour seem unimportant as the flowers blend together in this colourful carpet!
    Excellent details and full use of the frame!

    Hola Jorge.
    Una estupenda fotografia, con este detalle de parte de la poblacion, toda tan blanca, contrastando con la oscura roca, sobre la que se asienta, muy curioso la gran cantidad de capillas que podemos ver en la imagen.
    El excelente colorido y la buena gestión de la luz, realza aun más la belleza y nitidez de la escena.
    Muy bien hecho. Me gusta
    Que disfrutes de un buen dia.
    Saludos muy cordiales.

    Hello Denis,

    These buildings, of different heights, appear like coloured steps across the frame. They are a photographer's' dream! The grey sky gives a b/g of contrast, almost ominous in comparison with the bright, welcoming character of the buildings.
    A sharp and really well composed photograph.

    All a tradition the elaboration of the brandy in your country, undoubtedly your neighbor is very well prepared of utensils for its elaboration, is a great image of the daily life.
    The excellent color and the good management of the light, further enhances the beauty and sharpness of the scene.

    Hello John,

    What an interesting place.
    And how good to see man improving conditions for Nature rather than endangering species.
    It must be a wonderful place for bird spotting. I have a feeling the Luciano would love it!
    Your composition is smart; it follows the rule of thirds precisely, showing us details of the grasslands, the water and this interesting jet-trailed sky.

    Hello Craig,

    There is no way that you could combine these features on one photograph without the drone! It does offer such far reaching possibilities.
    Did you have any trouble getting it through airport security?
    I like how we can see the connection between the black sand in the f/g, the black rocks and the black sand which is in fact the b/g. It reminds me of scenes that Mariusz posted from the Canary Isles. Both places have a volcanic history.
    You know it isn't that long ago that the volcano on Iceland had a real splutter! It grounded aeroplanes around western Europe!

    It is an exciting as well as strangely beautiful place!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Very beautiful this diagonal composition, with this row of magnificent carriages of the time, it is undoubtedly a great collection that unites this museum, beautiful interior, palm trees included.
    Very well done. I like it

    Hello Mariusz,

    Oh, I envy your trip to this beautiful spot!
    When we were there, though the shots were interesting, we didn't have light like this!

    I like how you have included the pink flowers in the f/g which are link nicely with the girls, setting the scene and the mood. The buildings are very attractive as is the view of the cliffs and sea. beyond.
    There is absolutely nothing to disappoint in this photograph!

    Hello Lars,

    Yes, I recognised the man and the location from Craig's shot but the two photographs have a completely different setting.
    It must have seemed bizarre to encounter this pianist here!
    However, he does create a most unusual and intriguing photograph.
    He is very well placed against the blue of the water, the skyscrapers and the sky.
    I find another unusual aspect; in most photographs stairs lead into the scene, here they lead out!

    Thanks for this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    Playing chess outside is certainly the right way to do it!
    We played on the deck of a cruiser on the Rhine and, believe me, it was much more fun, especially when bystanders have to add their suggestions!
    The low light is very effective in the photograph.
    Have you noticed how the tops of the cathedral towers resemble chess pieces?

    Hello Claude,

    It's a very good observational photograph!
    I would imagine that most children will have a go at this just like adults have to have a go at a quiz or puzzle!

    Hello Luciano
    A very nice photo, and very understandable that the girl is so cool in the water of the fountain, because we are certainly having a very hot summer and also it is getting long, since since late May it was very hot.
    The excellent color and the good management of the light, further enhances the beauty and sharpness of the scene.
    Well done. I like it

    Impressive this ancient gateway to the city, ideal the perspective that we can still see from the street, and the row of columns to the left, I remember these ruins although for many years I visit the place.
