    Dear John,

    It helps to know the owner, and for the owner to know that you are a modern Flemish Master. I can hear the shrill sounds of the fountain in my mind. What gorgeous reds and greens, in the perfectly composed photo.

    Warm regards, dear friend,

    Dear John,

    A field of tulips as far as the eye can see in perfect bloom, but as you mention you've removed some that are not quite ripe yet. This is in the Netherlands and not in Belgium. Can you ride there on your bike, or did you drive? There is a surreal aspect because it is so ideal.

    Warmest regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Stephen,

    The photograph is technically first rate. Ideal lighting, sharp as obsidian glass, and featuring vivid colors of the Mediterranean sunlight. The palazzo is beautifully preserved. It's columns, arches, ironwork... are all opulent. It could date back to the Renaissance, or it could be an edifice in the neo-Renaissance design of the 30s, built by Chicago Mafia don who is in self-imposed exile. I'm relieved that even you can fail to give notes extensively researched. If it were shot by Didi, it could even be a composite of 4-5 photos seamlessly stitched together, and include the courtyard below. But it is a perfectly exposed beauty.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Nicolas,
    Poppies are my favourite wild flower so I am very happy to see this lovely composition. The poppies offer a beautiful carpet of red amongst all that greenery and beckon the viewer to enter. Well exposed with good colour contrasts and excellent clarity. Merci pour le partage et bon diamnche.

    Hello Chris,
    The point of view is very well chosen using the path and the fences to draw the viewer into the scene directing us toward the focal point offered by the mound. The image is very well exposed and has excellent colours and clarity. A fascinating place with a very long history judging by your informative notes.

    The fishing boats make an appealing frame and point the way toward the village on the far headland. I like the lights and colours and the excellent sharpness.

    Hello Aleksander,
    A well exposed night time composition from the beautiful city of Krakow. I like the point of view and the contrast between the bright lights of the fountain and the more muted tones of the background buildings. An image with a very pleasant atmosphere and a beautiful ensemble of architecture.

    Hello Jean-Claude,
    A pleasing composition with agreeable lights and colours. The path is nicely placed off-centre and the walker with her red backpack makes a fine focal point and adds a splash of contrasting colour to the landscape. The image is ideally exposed and has excellent colours and clarity.

    Hello Ney,
    This military college has a touch of the Art Deco about it and is rather attractive with its decorative statuary. The orange tones contrast well with the adjacent trees in this well presented symmetrical composition. Fine technical realisation.

    Hello Omid,
    An image to wet the appetite. The pink and white chequered napkin makes an excellent backdrop for the bread. Perfectly exposed with excellent colours and clarity. I can see no reason why it should attract the attention of the moderators though they do tend to work in mysterious ways:-)

    Hello Gigi,
    A well framed image of this very Italian scene. The line of washing blowing in the breeze sits well yellow walls. I like the close framing and the shadow play and the slightly oblique point of view. Very good technical realisation. Je te souhait bon dimanche.
