    Hi Neyvan
    A nicely composed, depicting the peculiar lake that looks so alien with interesting geological features, indeed a very strange place and eerie to me. This is a very effective shot particularly, the vantage point, low moody light which extremely suit the subject and the grey clouds have further added the drama and impact. The brief explanation is great, not only can we appreciate photographic art, but learn about our world as well, thank you. Congrats
    Warm regards

    Hi Neyvan
    Enormous clouds that deserved attention! Stunning is the only word to describe the dominating wonderful clouds with the 'island' gives a sense of size and stark contrast of the open wide view. There's a bit of distant interest well included which also helps viewer to wonder about the shot, it's well coloured with excellent clarity. I think this really has the ahhh factor beautifully done, Congrats

    Hi Ally
    Something fresh from your new shooting location! what an image of a picturesque canal scene and your vp cant be better than this. The low warm spring light, the brill architecture and water reflection are obvious pulling power here with lots more to savour the senses. The trees are there to give you the natural framing. I feel the colours and luminosity look natural to suit the weather - not overdone, it's a successful shot thoughtfully done and a joy to behold. Lovely in depth shot, Congrats and tfs
    Ps: Looking forward for more...

    Hi Daniel
    The effect of shooting into the light really makes this shot as being the most attractive element and the figures are there to make the flow works as a whole. Credit to your efficient well balanced exposure control, contrast and minimal colour rendition which suit the mood extremely well. Superb shot, Congrats and tfs.

    Hi Beverley
    An interesting documentary image, what a lovely clever compo Bev, each layer full to the brim with something to see. These turbines as controversial energy source, may not be to everyone's taste, but in the right place they can be very impressive and certainly your view of them is quite beautiful I think they actually add some interesting form to this seascape.

    These contraptions en-masse are a blot on the landscape but individually look quite majestic as what I had seen personally in Western China. I'm afraid it's the way we are going, we need to build and develop if we are to keep populating the country at a rate of knots. The clouds, polarised deep blue sky and pathway all combine to make this a striking image and the white stripe of water is a little delight. Tx to your extra image, Great picture and tx for sharing. Congrats

    The thoughts of apple pie come to mind and maybe some cider...
    Little tasty apple from the garden ushering in the summer with that nice tang of apples. Rich green and reddish colour combination is a real boost of contrast, nicely cropped formed by the placement with great DOF as well. An appetising image decently shot, Congrats, TFS

    Hi Noel
    It's a great imposing building and great for a photo! what a proud looking castle that is - a fine piece of historical architecture backed by some great locations there. It's thoughtfully captured Noel, superb stonework, great detail and lovely colours all round imho, combination of blue and green balances and soothes the overall color rendition really well. It's flawless capture which if possible I would like to see in monochrome. Wonderful, tfs.

    Hi Delphine
    You're getting so well with your mono works! A restful scene with the bench I believe, has witnessed so much life and soul, and if only it can talk .......

    Tx to your lengthy notes which helps us to appreciate this shot even better, an effective solid shot that works photographically, uncluttered nicely balanced where you have a decent amount of contrast, light, depth and strong elements to work with. There's a pulling power as the eyes will always naturally focus on the bench in exactly at the third, and this has a very tranquil feel to it and meaningful to you! A nicely well put together, and tfs. Congrats

    Hi John
    A splendid shot, you must have been off early to catch the scene like this and there's no doubt that the marvelous morning light has enhanced the colours to the best. The golden reeds and the canal in the foreground guide viewer smoothly into the scene and the old bridge while the beautiful trees are nice natural frame to the capture. The figures lend a lively final touch to the shot, it's really hard to beat when the weather is brill and your photo proves it. Delightful, Congrats.

    Hi Jean
    two things i like about this shot the most...the composition and the overall subject.

    the ceiling is fantastic too, lots of lines and forms flowing up to the top portions of the frame.
    elegant and a bit rustic.

    Salut Gigi,

    With only a quick moment to spare while at work, this picture caught my eye. Minimal, colorful and of course, "clean." :) I love the simplicity of common scenes, an observation that makes up that fabric of every day life in an interesting an visually pleasing manner. Bien fait mon ami. :)

    Hi Klaudio,

    It was great to hear from you, and I'm enjoying catching up on your gallery. This is a fine shot on many levels, and a heartfet dedication to a loved one. As difficult as it may be sometimes in sadness, it's always a treat to honor the memories in a manner that shares a smile.

    A wonderful note to accompany this "every day" scene, which makes us take a closer look at what's hidden in plain sight. :) Hope all is going well. Take good care.


    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    this is like a rainbow row of homes :)
    certainly catches our attention from the gallery page, it stands out well.

    nice to have that little pop of clouds too, just for added fun.

    charming place indeed. amazing history here, imagine what it looked like back in the 1200's!

    what a beautiful photograph.
    love how the open street adds depth and leads us into the upper portions of the scene.

    Hi Malgo
    oh I think i'd love this place.
    its a rainbow of color, lots of pizzaz and style.
    its something we don't get to see very often at all.

    and best of all, you have yourself a wicked blue sky to go along with it. its frustrating when the sky doesn't co-operate.

    fun shot
