    Hi Pedro
    A lively street scene, love how the elements play the greatest part to catch the eyes with some bold colours as good starting point. It's well oriented with excellent depth as the people is obvious features that have really worked for the shot. Well managed exposure, contrast and sharpness. A fine candid.
    Congrats

    Hi Gert
    Clever ideas & great candid moment with this 'stolen picture' when the body lingo says it all and quite entertaining! It's a nicely tight cropped to fill the frame, excellent clarity and sharpness and great colour to go along with this cool joyous moment which is precisely timed. This image stretches the imagination in a nice sort of way. Great work, Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    Something I've never tried before & not easy and thks for posting, Gulls usually look their aggressive selves in images ... this is almost a sympathetic shot. I like it. I especially love this with the bird against the darker bg that seems to improve the whole image and the exposure is right too that you have not lost any detail particularly in the white feathers - the most critical area which tends to 'burn out' but great that you've got it spot on there! Secondly I love the harmonious combination of colour and pin sharp in focus too. A standout shot of this graceful cutie and seeing from such close distant and capture timely is a great achievement. A serene capture & a nice piece of work. Fine shot, Congrats

    Hi Christiane
    Lovely colourful composition as we are drawn to the appealing boat marina with the fg boat fastening the eye as strong focal. Excellent lens work and the thought you've put into making this. Well done, TFS

    Howdy Francesco,

    The Duomo di Erice looks like rocks rising from the ground, in gothic patterns and rough textures. And impressive to be in such good shape since 1314.
    Your image in fine resolution and natural color, stimulates to one to visit in person.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,

    Howdy Jean,

    Attractive view of the orchestra, highlighted by radiating lights in long rays of color. And the light patterns through the dark are geometric lines intersecting.
    Being a classical music fan, I would love to be at your "un Violon sur le Sable", and see the fireworks also, etc.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Howdy Noel,

    Your monochrome approach reveals textures and rock details that color might have over dominated. And the positioning to close in on giant foreground boulders, leading uphill to the ancient historical rock
    creation - the Poulnabrone Dolmen is rewarding.
    Then a bonus with your historical information.

    Certainly would be magical to stand where you have and soak in culture from 3800 BC.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,

    Attractive and unusual blue lavender, in dense rows leading towards traditional color lavender in the horizontal distance. Must sell higher than the majority?

    Hi Robert
    is this car for real???
    looks like something out of a Hollywood movie set!

    absolutely love the perspective you got of the car.
    the way the hood of the car flows back, and the way the headlights are in our face is awesome.

    wicked COOL car shot! and its a car that takes notice for sure.

    fun shot

    Hi Lisa
    what the heck is this!
    reminds me a bit of the weird escalator we captured in Naples :) remember that one I posted?

    the best part for me i think, are all those reflections.
    I feel like I'm standing in one of those FUNNY MIRROR rooms at the circus lol

    funky shot Lisa, its a head turner

    Hi Pavle
    you often show us charming and colorful backyards, and I guess this one suits that as well :)

    reds and greens dominate the scene, and the red certainly pops.

    picturesque scene, something we'd see in a farm calendar or something :)
    thanks for this one

    Hi Christian
    that cloud on the left of the church is positioned perfectly :)

    everything about this photo screams charm and elegance.
    love the dimmed light, love the colors, love the clouds and the tall dominant stance.

    can't resist the whites and blues.
    anytime you can have these colors plus some clouds, it will make for a sweet charming summer scene.

    Howdy Silvio,

    SPQR -
    3 elements come to mind in your fine image of the Roman Theater: 1) Positioning the tall wall to intersect the two arches. 2) 'lighting' front-on is subdued, and the wall while mostly in shadow has enough light to reveal sharp details. 3) And of course sharpness.

    Good job,
    Cheers,
    Ray

    Howdy Ourania,
    Your landscape could be California, except of course for Leros Castle and the conical buildings to the left.
    The foreground would be the same here at the end of September. California calls it Chapparal vegetation....
    I would love a stroll on the path leading to the top and also your vantage point.
    Well done,
    Cheers,

    Hi Krzysztof
    I chose this shot in your gallery simply because I like the subject, architecture and the angle/composition you took it from.

    even just looking at the history, the age of this place is outstanding. Imagine how it looked hundreds and hundreds of years ago.

    lovely shot all around in this harsh lighting.

    wow, those are some stunning colors!
    you have exposed this scene perfectly too, I wouldn't want to change anything at all to it.

    charming subject matter too, well done.
