    Hello Gert,

    I think I am slowly and gradually managing to "get" the message about "special" and "nothing special"!

    This unoccupied and part derelict building with its broken windows and uninspiring graffiti would certainly classify as "nothing special" but the inclusion of the man with his bright yellow bag seemingly pausing to stare in the direction of the grimy statue on the left definitely does raise this image up a few notches to rather "special"!

    And, of course, the man's view immediately makes us wonder at what he is staring - and so we mimic him by also taking a closer look at the statue - and then we go on to compare it with the statue on the right and so discover that there are quite a few differences between the two.

    But that "connection" with the human subject is missing in your workshop picture with the lady because she is ignoring both the building and the photographer. And the pussy cat shows even less interest in his/her surroundings, obviously set on pursuing something outwith the photograph.

    A well seen and well timed photograph with good light and colours and excellent technical quality too.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Mariusz,

    I'm not sure if lines of laundry hung out to dry are "artistic" or not but there's just something a little strange about them. But I think the reason we find them a little strange is because the British never seem to like to hang out their washing in public view - we dry our laundry either in the house or on washing lines in our gardens away from the prying public - just in case any strangers happen to see that we actually wear socks and pants and shirts! But in other "normal" countries, people dry their laundry in public and seem quite happy to have others see what they wear. :)

    But, no, in this photograph the line of colourful clothes is a very important element, brightly lit and standing out brilliantly against a clear blue sky and very effectively "joining" the two buildings on either side as well as leading the eye nicely from the left and up to the window and the near lamp.

    A very well composed photograph, very well seen and very well taken and with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Stephen,

    A fascinating note about this huge and ancient cathedral. And with a place of such enormous proportions it must be very difficult to know where to start with a camera!

    But this is a fine glimpse of the interior, the rows of lit candles leading us along a long aisle past tall stained glass windows flanked by statues, presumably of saints, and with remarkably good light and fine colours.

    This must have been quite a difficult photograph to take but you have managed it well with perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Craig,

    Aw, Shucks! Thank you for your kind words about my old picture of this castle - I'd almost forgotten about that one - but now I remember standing in the drizzle on the opposite side of the loch with my feet slowly sinking into the mud while I set up my camera - by the time I'd finished the mud was over my ankles and most of the pictures were rubbish because I'd managed to get a lot of tiny raindrops on my lens.

    I look at this magnificent drone shot and I'm trying to find you! I'm sure that's Tosca down there at bottom right - I remember her light blue jacket - but where are you? Hiding inside the castle ruins?

    Seriously, this is a fabulous photograph, the castle perfectly placed in the frame with the beautiful sky reflections in the calm water of the loch on the right and with a gorgeous view of the distant hills and sky beyond and with the water's edge leading us nicely into the picture from the bottom right corner.

    A beautiful view which few of us will ever see and with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and, despite what you say, excellent details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S.

    Just in case you didn't know (or didn't speak to anyone around here), "Kilchurn" is pronounced like "Kil-hoorn"! :)
