    Hi Costantino
    An attractive scene and well thought out compo in this format as the dynamic sailboats are nicely positioned occupying both thirds with the backdrop provides good framing. Excellent colors-tones, light and clarity and deep blue water is another attractive element which also acts as an effective contrast. A slight increase in sharpness will look just right. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Christiane
    Lovely promenade and luminous with lots of intriguing details captured in bight day light with some nice colors in the background. So well composed making the speck of vivid green as an effective eye pointer, I love the ideas. A very scenic spot and the wonderful sky complement the shot attractively. Good capture, Congrats, TFS

    Hi Elaine
    Very fine creative vision .. you have got it..

    Everything is packed really tight, but there is a sort of equilibrium between all these parts. It's a much stronger image with perfect timing especially to get the position of the fisherman in between the natural frames. The subtle angled late afternoon sun and colours bundled by gorgeous water wiggles create so much desired effect.

    A very relaxing image, at the end of a stressful day. An artistic work, Top Notch !!

    Intriguing combination of colours, but indeed a charming half timbered architecture highlighting the rustic quality that takes one back in time full of character. A fine shot, great clarity and contrast, Congrats.

    Hi Ryszard
    Red and green dome are strong elements of a neatly aligned scene by the canal on a bright day light with immense detail and vivid colours. I love the perspective with excellent water and deep blue sky effect. It does look so pleasant and your camera works is spot on, Congrats.

    Hi Daniel
    Balconies in Valletta. Indeed a popular subject for shutter bugs with the traditional balconies featuring a number of common characteristics as evinced by this photograph. Superb crop, brilliant colours and pleasant clarity and love touch of green. Excellent capture and TFS

    Hi Nicolas
    Very well captured tree trunk, it was worth the time it took. I love trees and wood and know just how this would feel, but the light contrast together with the rich colours make the texture look richly wonderful! Well done.

    Hi Eleu
    A fabulous location for photography I do really like that sky and the glow of the sandstone really makes this sing and you've got enough detail and light in the fore and mid ground to complete the scene without detracting and a superb depth to the shot too. Excellent work indeed! Spot on,

    Hi Krzysztof
    You have a good close subject of an old barn that actually sets the eyes on. Lovely detail of the stonework in warm color and the openning sets as a strong focal point. Touch of green provides an effective extra colour to bring the total image to life. Lovely catch from this view point inviting us to look deep, and deep inside. A lovely snap, Congrats

    Hi Pavle
    Glorious ripening peaches in a fabulous cottage garden- sign of a good Summer. So perfect, unblemished, gorgeous colours & light and you can even see the fluffiness on the skins. They made the mouth water just looking at them! Delicious peachy shot, its great. Congrats

    Hi Ike
    This shot reminds me of south China where local fishermen use cormorants - the old traditional method to hunt for fish in the illuminated river water. Excellent feather detail, sharp in focus to make it works as a pair in lovely warmer colour balance on a pretty bright day and great contrast to obtain deep blacks. Apart from that, the water is so glorious and I love the little breathing space on the left improving the whole compo. Great nature shot so seamlessly executed. Congrats, TFS
    Ps; Thks for your extra notes; extremely a sad commentary on current conflict of very tense situation there and really hard to imagine that, Let's pray that things get sorted out soonest possible. You and your family do take good care.

    Wet fish is something very seldom seen in Namibia John although there are scores of trawlers off-shore fishing for deep water hake. Most of the fish is processed on big factory ships and ends up in Spain.

    The selection you show here looks fresh and inviting... looks like paella might be on the menu.

    See you Monday!

    Hello Denis - The white and blue details are the stand out feature for me here, even the 2CV has a hint of coordinating blue on its number plates. I like the repeat of the inverted 'V's on the radiator grill and the lace curtains too... a nice coincidence. A charming scene.

    Warm regards

    Hello Magaly -I really like the light in this shot and your processing is excellent allowing the bright sparkle of water drops to splash and glint against the darker backdrop. Back light is challenging to expose for, the result here appeals to me. The couple sitting on the wall balance the fountain perfectly. Super!

    Hi Wolfgang
    A picture telling street scene! their postures seem to suggest something as I am also drawn to colours, props and placement where all contribute to the picture, so very well detailed, crispy sharp in excellent clarity. But I love the rustic feel of the classic facade and all the grittiness depicting the actual situation there as the elements work smoothly together. An excellent street candid so well recorded vividly. Excellent shot, Congrats
    Ps: the vertical-horizontal lines can be straighten slightly.

    Hi Noel
    Imposing attitude shot! Great angular shapes & fantastic perspective add to dramatic feel of the ultra modern glass buildings. Works well with this treatment to emphasise them even more, think it suits the "blue" look and beautifully saturated too. Great work, Congrats.

    Lovely take and the quality of angle light turns this waterfornt so splendid where everything seems to work fine to strike the eyes with dark grey sky accentuate the stunning contrast. The curvy lined white boats are the obviously main show pulling all the attention in. Really very fine shot, Congrats. TFS

    Hi Gert
    An excellent candid image of these elderly gentlemen, they could be candidates from 'Last of the Summer Wine' Each one would make a good character portrait in their own right! Love the expressions, body language going on here and each one different and telling a different tale. But the most interesting character is obviously the chap on the left who looks like generation of grumpy old man and thoroughly miserable and fed up possibly trying to distance himself from you and the closed fists are worrying! I think you were so brave to stand and take the shot - a priceless shot and so full of interest, taking his grumpiness to its ultimate.... LOL
    I luv it, Great capture
