    Bonjour Claude,

    Yes, thank Goodness for those shadows - they really make this picture and let use realise that all of those six feet are off the ground and these boys are flying!

    This is a lovely photograph, perfectly taken with perfect timing. Taking this contre jour (that means "against the light"!) has made the shadows much more obvious and yet you have still managed to have enough light on the boys themselves for us to see their faces and the determination on them.

    This is yet another of your superb candid shots, perfectly seen and perfectly taken à la sauvette.

    Brilliant!

    Amicalement,

    John.

    Hello Will,

    You have written a fascinating note about this place and provided us with a beautiful photograph to accompany it. And, judging by the amount of water lying in the landscape, I am sure that this, combined with the high temperatures, must have made for a very humid atmosphere which would account for the condensation which plagued your camera as well, probably, as yourself.

    Despite the technical problems you had, you have produced a very fine photograph here, a perfect snapshot of rural life in Cambodia where poor farmers work hard for a meagre living aided by oxen and not fancy modern and expensive equipment.

    A lovely photograph perfectly depicting the scene with fine light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness. A perfect upload for TE.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Noel,

    As always, you have written a fascinating and informative note and also provided us with a spectacularly beautiful photograph.

    the view here is stunning and I can fully understand why this place is so popular for visitors and photographers alike. Your photograph has captured the beauty of this Atlantic coast perfectly and you have also managed to include a little group of people in the foreground which adds extra interest and appeal. A fellow photographer and two young ladies, one of which is licking her ice cream cone with relish!

    This photo looks good enough on "new" TE but when viewed at its full size, the light and colours are lovely and the details and sharpness are truly stunning. And what a glorious sky!

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Krzystof,

    You have written a fascinating note about this church and the city of Szczebrzeszyn and shown us a beautiful photograph.

    Your composition here is delightful, the wall surrounding the church providing a fine "lead in" line to draw the viewer well into the image. The church itself is perfectly placed in the frame and is beautifully depicted against a deep blue sky with lovely puffy white clouds.

    The light and colours are glorious, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Krzystof,

    This is a perfect photograph of these aircraft doing their aerobatic stunts and you have captured them perfectly against a deep blue sky so that the smoke trails stand out so remarkably.

    Lovely light and rich colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

    Bravo!

    Hello Stephen,

    This is a delightful photograph with gorgeous rich colours - which, interestingly, again reinforces my theory that dull damp weather does seem to increase the saturation of colours. Lovely strong perspective too and that is enhanced by your well chosen viewpoint, your use of a wide lens and the diagonal line of cars.

    Fine composition, lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Interestingly, the gables do appear of Dutch style but the actual roofs themselves don't in this picture - they just look like normal pitched roofs to me.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    A fascinating note and a lovely photograph to illustrate it! Now this is the way we should transport goods nowadays - much more ecologically friendly than transporting them by rail or by road and much more fuel efficient too!

    This is a lovely tranquil view (presumably from a bridge) along this canal. Although the canal is partly shaded, we still see the attractive brick walls on either side and another bridge in the distance, partially obscured by lovely overhanging trees. The light and colours are delightful, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are excellent.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Rob,

    An interesting and informative note and a wonderfully graphic image to accompany it.

    The building itself is impressive enough but you have chosen the perfect viewpoint from which to take this photograph. The lighting on the modern structure is superb and the colours are rich and vibrant. And I love how the central area of the image tricks the eye like an optical illusion. Fine reflections too from the extensive glass surfaces.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,

    An interesting historical note about Sanquhar Castle and a delightful and well composed evening photograph of it!

    The foreground fence underlines the image perfectly and the castle in beautifully portrayed against a glorious evening sky with the pink edges clouds standing out perfectly against the blue. And the softly rolling grassy mounds in the foreground add to the appeal.

    A wonderfully peaceful photograph with lovely soft light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    A pleasant point of view on this ruined castle looking over the railings, which add a touch of graphism. Agreeable lights and very good colour contrasts. Excellent clarity. I wish you a pleasant evening.
