    Hello Jean,

    Wow, this is interesting! It's nice that both Gert and Malgo have been able to give you some information about the Polish sculptor, Igor Mitoraj, who did this work. I have to agree too with John (jhm) about the risks of leaving bronze artworks like this around in the open - thieves of copper and bronze are very active in Britain too and a valuable bronze sculpture by Henry Moore was stolen from an area near Dumfries just eighteen months or so ago: the sad thing was that it was probably stolen in order to be melted down for its scrap value.

    Anyway, this is a very fine composition you have produced here with the sculpture very aptly dominating the foreground and with the ruined temple making a perfect backdrop. But, probably most important of all, is the lady standing to the right, perfectly placed in the frame and giving a fine sense of scale as well as some living human interest too.

    Lovely light and colours, spot-on exposure and excellent depth of field and sharpness.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Klaudio,

    This is a spectacular view, with Mt. Cooke on center stage, in the fall in down under New Zealand. I concur with all your observations about the wonderment one feels in driving around New Zealand, especially the South Island. During the week we were in New Zealand (Nov. 13-20, 2014) we spent 3 1/2 days on each of the two islands. We didn't get to see Mt. Cooke on the South Island, but we stayed in Queenstown and experienced that wonderment. We also like the people very much.

    As I mentioned earlier, we will be visiting southeast Australia next February, albeit for a very short time. I hope that we can get together somewhere.

    Have a good Sunday,

    Bulent

    Hi Craig,

    I think someone is trying to tell me something - that I must go sometime to Lofoten! Every time I look at TE I see pictures from yourself or Malgo from this part of northern Norway and each picture is more beautiful than the last one and seems to beckon me to go visit this place!

    It's interesting to compare your snowy scenes with Malgo's more summery views. This is a particularly attractive photograph, the composition being superb with the little stream meandering through the snow covered grasslands and leading us gently toward the few colourful houses nestling at the foot of tall snow clad mountains. The light is stunning, the colours delightful and the details and sharpness, as always, are superb.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Malgo,

    Three beautiful photographs you've shown us and I think you've made the right choice for your main picture - the romantic couple there do add some interest as well as some red colour too! But the other two pictures are also delightful with lovely light and colours and excellent composition and details. I would love to visit this place!

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,

    An interesting note and a fine photograph! My thoughts are with this little girl - I hated going shopping with my Mum when I was a kid - it was just so boring - and six decades later I still loathe shopping! I've never quite understood why it is that so many people look upon a visit to the shops like some great adventure. I would much prefer to play on these steps and have some fun!

    A very fine composition in which the curvature of the steps on the foreground is a very important feature, leading us to the little girl in red, then to the bottom of the steps and railings up to the shopping mall and the "Welcome" sign above - while her mum at far right looks on.

    Good light and colours, spot-on exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello John,

    I believe that proper carriage driving is a real art and I can understand why people might find it both interesting and challenging too.

    This is a very fine portrait of this carriage driver - very appropriately wearing his waistcoat bearing the “Nieu Wege” logo - and you've taken it against a very simple and non-distracting background. Despite his broad-rimmed hat, there is still good light on the young man's face, there is good eye contact with the subject and the details and sharpness are superb.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Costantino,
    I recognize with a pleasure the excitement of approaching a new island and waiting for the moment when I can go ashore. This is a very nice photo of the people watching the hills of Ikaria on a beautiful sunny day. The light is perfect and the blue chair and red life buoy add fine, strong colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello dear Mesut,

    An interesting note and a very fine portrait of this very pleasant looking elderly woman seated in the doorway of her modest house.

    The wooden doorway makes a perfect frame for this attractive subject and the dark interior of her house makes a perfect and non-distracting background. Lovely soft light, fine colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    An interesting note and a fine photograph of a much more modern part of Spoleto than those you have shown us before.

    The diagonal composition is delightful and the sunlight on the façade of the main building makes it stand out beautifully against its background and a lovely blue sky above. Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Ourania
    A fine specimen of this great bird, and he looks quite proud, and a little angry perched in his natural location. It seems that soon there will be a cull of these birds in Dublin as the city has an big problem with them. They are getting bigger due to the easily available good supply and are getting quite aggressive. They steal food from people's hands on the street and a couple of weeks ago, one of them dropped a dead rat into a crowd of people in o connell Street! As disgusting add that is, I must admit I laughed at the thought when I heard that. I don't like the idea of them being culled, but having been attacked by one myself in grand canal square a few months ago, I can kind of understand.have a great weekend
