    Hello Serghei.
    A beautiful capture of the sun's rays streaming through the haze. I love the dusty road, the shadows, and the steel gates shrouded in the mist. I hope I can make one suggestion - I think you could crop about 40%of this photo from the top; I have done it on my screen by scrolling, and I think the top part is unnecessary.

    Hello Will.
    A marvellous shot. Making a great landscape scene even better. We see what the two are seeing, and can wonder at their thoughts and words. The branches above create a nice frame effect in this well proportioned picture. And you could take it without their realising, always a boon!

    Hello Paul.
    Your excellent note complements this great daily life scene very well. An unpretentious photo of ordinary people making an unpretentious celebration of their independence day. I presume you were leaning out of a window to take this one. You managed to get a good angle of view. I hope you'll show more photos of Colombia, the country of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Did you visit Aracataca, I wonder.

    Hi Benny.
    Beautiful portrait capture of a lovely young woman, with great context provided by those timber shutters. The light falling on her is very well caught, standing out so well against the shadowy background. Superb photo.

    Hi Malgo.
    I like the panoramic crop of this photo, which allows us to focus on the delightful grouping of these horses. No need for any sky in this one. They look so relaxed and comfortable in their surroundings. Good note, as usual.

    Greetings Gert.
    No reason why you shouldn't return to those older days, thirty years ago in this case, when I'm sure things were very different in China then, as they were in eastern Europe. But perhaps in the far-flung regions of China one could still see scenes just like this. It looks like pretty basic but absolutely essential public transport. But I do wonder if today the sky we see here would be full of haze. As usual your excellent note and workshop photos fill in and enhance the details of the story. Keep them coming, Gert.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hi Silvio.
    Great close-up shot, which is something different from you. Beautiful sharp capture with superb bokeh. Very nicely done, even with quite a slow shutter speed. We should see more pictures like this on TE.

    Hi Daniel

    Intriguing photo, very effective in extreme close-up. Looks eerily like a real person. Your interesting note explains all. We have something slightly similar - but not scary - here, near Melbourne, the William Ricketts Sanctuary, with figures in the forest all representing the aboriginal people and native wildlife:

    Hi Lisa.

    Very striking other-planet-like photo, with beautiful rich tones. Could have been taken by the Mars landing thingy or some such! I studied the high res version carefully, but I can't see one small trace of humanity in it. I've been wanting to visit Lake Mungo for ages, so thanks for that. It's rekindled my interest.

    Hi John.

    Terrific photo. Of course the old Lagonda must loom up to take the focal point in the photo, but you timed this so well to capture the owner in animated conversation with another enthusiast. The photo would just not have been so effective without the imagined story he must be telling.

    I always wondered what happened to all those wonderfully-named defunct British cars of bygone years. Alvis, Sunbeam-Talbot and Riley are a few more that spring to mind. I can remember as a small boy in Melbourne in the 1950s we were still able to some of them on the roads.

    Anyway, great work!

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Kari.
    Looks like this getaway is very far away from anywhere. I like this Summer view, and I expect the winter one would be tremendously different. You have a lovely, vast background of mountains behind the forests and wetlands. Nicely presented.

    Hello Carlo.
    A very nicely presented small town view, with strong perspective effect achieved as we look down the road which is bordered by flowers and old houses on one side and moored boats on water on the other. Lovely control of the sunlight on the houses, and a good sense of depth.

    Hi Danos.
    A marvellous composition, beautifully balanced and with an excellent control of the light and shadow. I love the reflective mood conveyed here, and also the little ladder and the solar power panel on top of the light-house! The tree and its shadow frame the main subject very nicely. Well done.

    Hello Stephen
    Another pleasant looking French town I have not yet visited. The centre of France is a bit of a blank spot for me, but I've had a good time going around the fringes. I like the viewpoint and relaxed atmosphere conveyed. Perhaps the reds in the photo are a little bit too saturated, probably not quite the right white balance or something. But perhaps it's just my white balance that's a bit 'off'!

    One thing I do like about France, whether it's in the cities or small towns, is the presence of good bookshops. They're very hard to find, even bad ones, in Melbourne, a city of 4.5 million.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Gyorgy.
    Fascinating photo, taken with such a 'mini' camera and fisheye lens, and followed by a clever stitching job. The effect is superb - a sense of vastness is created, and I like the brooding, menacing atmosphere of the dark clouds. Superb.

    A delightful humorous shot with the young fellow so well placed running on to the comedy carpet from the left. You captured him very sharply. The photo gives a good idea of the huge size of the carpet. Thanks for the very interesting note.
