    Hello Lars - Your zebra's zig-zag stripes make me think of an Op Art B&W graphic. I am impressed by your creative look at the animal, living in Namibia and often going on Safari this has given me food for thought! Well done.

    Hello Sasha - A yummy looking bowl of shiny cherries. One of the things that I like about this shot is the spotted cloth it coordinates very well with the red of the fruit.

    One thing I might have tried to change is the white chair (?) back on the RHS, it interferes with the nice curved line of the table edge. Not a major issue though.

    Warm regards

    Hello Serge - I'm never quite sure about excessive distortion but I admit that it adds a dynamism to a shot such as this and of course, we can see so much more than a less extreme leans would allow us. The architecture here is pin sharp and most attractive. I love the Italian piazzas.

    Hello Brian - You post so seldom these days but when you do it's always a treat to see your work. Beautifully composed with good crisp FG detail and a ribbon of water that reflects the golden colours of the landscape as it progresses through to the distant scene. Your half second exposure has added a lovely silkiness to the water which amplifies the serenity of the landscape very well. Gorgeous colour and pretty light, a faultless post.

    Hello Alain - The clipped trees make a wonderful subject and I like the variety of green hues very much. I feel perhaps that a square crop might look quite good as there is quite a lot of uninteresting sky which the shot could lose quite easily. I have done a quick WS to explain what I mean, I hope that you don't mind.

    Have a great day

    Hello Ann - This shot really benefits by being seen on the beta version of TE as so many of the fine details become far more visible. The subtleties of the light with its slight warm tint and the amazing depth perspective are wonderful and contribute to the beauty of this landscape scene.

    Your PP work is delicate and attractive and I think it adds to the ambience here.

    Warmest wishes

    Hi Jose
    No wonder this is much liked by a keen eyed shooter. It's all about spontaneity, simple but the overpowering contrasting colours between yellow and blue is yelling for attention and rightly deserved a shot as illustrated. Very crispy razor sharp, brilliant light, love the long shadow too and clean shot filling the frame nicely. A cheery picture well shot, Congrats.

    Hi Costantino
    A great find of gorgeous reflection and water abstract just a therapy looking at it. It's bright full of rich colours and good choice of shutter speed fast enough to capture those squiggly lines. An eye catching piece no doubt timely shot, Congrats.

    It's an attractive religious subject but the bg lets me down, being part of an important element of the shot is clearly lack of definition and almost over exposed
    in contrast to fg which looks fairly good. Good attempt nevertheless.

    Hello Gunnar - Here in Namibia we don't really have a chance to see autumn as our seasons are basically summer and winter with spring and autumn going by in a flash. This being the case, it is always a treat to see a scene like this one. It reminds me of childhood days when I loved to crunch through piles of dried leaves; what a lovely sound they made! I think if I found myself in this young woman's shoes I would be kicking orange leaves into the air.

    A colourful and lovely shot.

    Hi Ana
    A simple architectural features but it makes us think about the history of this place and you do this image with such style and skill at the right time of day when the subtle warm light nicely filtering through giving wonderful tones, shades and shadows. To me what so striking is the colour combination and the would be prayer is there aiding you with the compo. The building that stands the test of times! Quality shouts at you, Congrats.

    Hello Luis - The palette of contrasting shades of blue and white with small splashes of warm yellow make this image appealing. The bright light and high contrast does the rest. A memorable set of reflections and a shot that conveys the feel of a sunny day by the water.

    My son and husband are both keen motor sports fans (F1) Edward so your WS shot would be one for them. I, however, prefer this creative and cleverly managed shot. I can see the car and the driving rain as illuminated by the headlights and the image has such a free Impressionistic look to it. To my eyes this is inspirational. I like it!

    Hello Bev - I am a great fan of B&W especially when used for a well-chosen image. Your choice here is excellent I think. The distinctive graphic lines of the pier are all the more obvious than they would be in a colour shot (unless of course you had that marvelous sunset with a fiery sky and silhouetted structure). This to my mind is far more meaningful and paints a picture of gloomy desolation. I like that.

    Well managed conversion

    Hello Ely - A fine blue hour shot with a well managed exposure and fabulous detail. The FG detail is attractive and shows off the architectural delights of the 'island' and the distant land with sprinkling of lights gives a good feel for the locality.

    Hi Pavle
    Nice looking village pedestrian bridge which is bounded by fresh verdant green surrounding and great sky. The composition is superb with the yellow railing spans towards the left frame for a bit more interest there. Think it's a beautiful rural scene, great combination of light, shadows, colours and perspective that was well seen and captured. Congrats
