    Hi Ana
    An interesting shot of what must be a serious barber and his victim here! An intriguing insight, lovely framing putting the two men on the thirds lends more strength. The barber's expression and focus make this really stand out. Clever composition, typical of local daily life, a cracker full of atmosphere and lovely feeling of roughness in keeping with the title. Well timed and nicely toned as well. Great Capture, Congrats.

    Hi Engin
    This is great insight. Impressive the way you have caught the sun light on the side of the monastery. I love the composition with the building structures on the right frame give perspective leading into the whole depth. A quite breathing taking image, with immense detail, colour, interest and clarity in depth. Great photography, much more than a holiday snapshot. Congrats

    Hi Piotr
    A magnificent alpine scene and good sense of terrain & fantastic climate seems like it's inviting you to walk in from bottom right with added interest in the mid fg which adds a great sense of scale. You couldn't wish for a better backdrop than those tremendous ice capped mountains. Excellent composition, colour, and detail.
    Great shot and tfs.

    Hi John
    Impressive shot when the weather is so promising to cheer up the day with a church on the right frame in a beautiful setting, set off by the autumn leaves. A lovely scene, awesome light & shadow for a strong architectural subject beautifully composed and with such splendid seasonal colours. A visual delight! Congrats

    Splendid light management of the evening shot of Porto Venere. I believe, the great Romantic poets, Keats and Byron I believe met in Porto Venere. Wonderful shot,

    Hello Chris

    This is certainly the most eye catching photo I've seen on Trekearth since I returned from New Zealand a few days ago. It appears that you are now ensconced in Romania. The reflections of the trees in the lake are so dramatic.

    Hi Ourania
    Clouds can be so photogenic with the patterns and colours! This has the quality that is difficult to put in words actually, good use of the fg, the dynamic range and effective composition all weave their beauty with great exposure control. Beautiful mood from the layered depth and contrast. Excellent shot, Congrats

    Hi Gert
    You have found a way to travel back in time, lovely travel photo that tells a story. The cart looked as though it was laid out just for the photo as the composition is just right. Like the details, colours and light in this fine study. Excellent, Congrats

    Hello Andy,

    This is a wonderful portrait of the young woman, bearing an infectious warm smile. However, if you don't mind, I am going to do a very simple workshop on the photo, in order to illustrate a recently discovered principle of composition.

    Christopher Tyler, a British born psychologist practicing in San FranciscoIt, discovered in 1998 that in almost all great single-subject portraits, one eye passes through the vertical bisector of the frame. This is true of Leonardo's few but great portraits, Rembrandt's countless self-portraits, even Picasso's works, and this could be the leading or the trailing eye. Accordingly, I cropped the image a little on the right to get the subject's left eye close to bisector. This is a simple principle that is never taught in art schools, but the greatest of all painters appear to discover the practice independently, and inadvertently. This is a useful principle for photographers to know about. It appears that we focus on one eye. Take a look at "Rembrandt at 400". I wrote about this principle in a book I wrote about Leonardo, "Math and the Mona Lisa."

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Brian,

    I read yesterday that someone dropped a beer bottle on the glass walkway above or on the Tower bridge and shattered it. St Paul's Cathedral at right needs no explanatory note but the modern communications tower at left, I have no idea of. Good timing to capture the barge going under the bridge. Tfs!

    Bonjour Ghislaine

    Love the turquoise colour of the water. It contrasts well against the red fg boat and orange brick building at right in the bg. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Excellent fg shadow detsail and nice sparkles on the water. The vineyards produce fine local white wine, I am sure!

    Bonjour, Mon Cher ami Philippe,

    As usual you give us a superb autumn view, and as you do sometimes, submit a beautiful poem to accompany it. I just returned from a lengthy trip to the South Pacific, where they are just in Spring (Printemps) and ascending into summer, we are in Autumn and descending into Winter. They do not have the beautiful colors of Fall, but then we do not have their warming weather.

    Warm regards, my friend,

    Bonjour Pierre,

    No need at all to worry about hitting your head on the overhead cover unless you jump on the bed and it has springs like a trampoline! Good angled pov on the ornately decorated bed with the even more lavishly adorned bg walls covered in Baroque paintings. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    An odd photo but a good one. Only the dog seems interested in the photographer. The woman is preoccupied with something on the table and the man has a distant expression probably thinking about as business deal or budget. His face appears to be grimacing at the prospect! Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Salut JJ

    I like the wavy Portuguese style tile mosaics in the fg. The bg peole add scale. Impeccable sharpness and a marvellous blue sky that contrasts well against the red rooftops and salmon pink facade of the City Hall building. The greenery added by the flower-boxes adds charm. Tfs!

    Nice shot of the smiling exuberant wedding couple shot under ideal sunny weather conditions with perfect placement on the 1.3 vertical axis and under the arch to boot! Good color saturation and sharpness. The arch also frames the bg spire nicely. Tfs!

    Hello Georg,

    The bg mountain has a faint cyan halo around it. You could try to laso it and or darken it and or add a little red so it matches the colour of the blue sky above it. Perfect sharpness and the tightly packed buildings along the waterfront add interest. Their warmer colors contrast well against the blue water. Tfs!
