    I really appreciate the low POV that you used here Craig. I think getting down to the level of the 'tea-drinkers' shows a connection with your subjects. Both the men look directly into you lens... one seems very eager as he leans towards you! The woman averts her eyes which tells us something about the culture I think. To my mind the WA lens works perfectly well here and I see no trace of lack of sharpness.

    Nicely done, a super DL scene.

    Hello Christiane - This is an attractive coastline which still retains a wild look despite the development of what look like holiday apartments and homes. The colours all work harmoniously together, even the terracotta roofs echo the warm colours of some of the vegetation; I like that.

    A fine maritime composition where the contrasts of blues and oranges make a terrific display.

    Warm regards

    Hello Malgo - I find that thoughts of war consumes many minutes of my days the the moment. I watch what's happening in the Middle East with a sense of despair and as the world remembers the 100 year anniversary of WW1 and the utter madness of it you post this. Your note and WS are another sombre reminder of the madness of mankind. It seems that past conflict teaches us, the supposed highest form of life, nothing at all.

    Would that we could all be as innocent as these small children who splash in the fountain totally unaware of the dark history of your location. Looking at the WS, I can identify the buildings in you shot and marvel at how well they have been restored. What a tragedy that those lost in war and those who suffer from its memories cannot be restored as neatly too.

    An excellent post.

    Warmest regards

    Hello Ghislaine - This is a fascinating shot. The lines of perspective provide stability to the composition which is filled with light, muted colour and dancing reflections. The back light has provided you with some excellent organic silhouettes and the lone figure gives context.

    Wonderful.

    Hello John -
    What a wonderful shot. The house is so beautiful and I like the way it appears over the tops of the trees which, I think, add to the sense of place. Good light brings out the colours in the building materials and give a warmth to the old stonework. A romantic, fairytale building and a classy, well managed shot.

    Hello Ike - The light here is perfect to show off the shimmering white reflections on the reflected blue sky. What appeals to me most is the colour palette. Nothing jars the harmony of blues, whites and greys. Splendid!

    This impressive sculpture fills the frame and packs a punch Brian. I like the detail and especially the softly reflected ambient light which adds form and volume to the piece. I shall have to do some research as I would like to learn more about the thoughts behind the work; it has a classical look and the title 'Sleeping Head' intrigues me.

    Fascinating!

    Hello Brian - I have been a bit slack with TE this week ('flu) but I simply must comment on this one; it is breathtaking. The shapes, curves and colours you present here are so well captured and processed. This should be published in an architectural digest it is flawless!

    Got to say something about this fabulous shot too Les. The rocks are such a strong compositional element and I love the way you have used a slow SS to accentuate the contrasts between water and land. This is very nicely managed. I love this coastline.

    Hi Les - I have been a bit slack with TE this week ('flu) but I cannot let this one slip by. What a lovely shot and note. I like the central position of the tree; moss-covered and wizened it carries character and excellent detail. The rocks, ferns and single figure add the finishing details. Beautiful and evocative, I like this a lot.

    Hello Takero,

    After six days in Kanazawa, we are preparing to fly back to Washington, DC. We saw many beautiful people and places, traditional dancers and drummers, but not a scene as colorful as this boat. I will post some photos soon from Kanazawa.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    With ideal light, you've captured the beauty of the shore on the Athos Peninsula. I've sailed past this area, but never landed. It's a beautiful shot, well composed and exposed.
