    Ciao Luciano,

    What can I say, I"m really enjoying this blue series! :) Another fun and creative way to showcase this particular color. The vertical composition works very well here to "stack" the boats and create a strong layered effect. Full of detail and textures, you have put together a fine collection of the every day objects. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Serghei,

    I just saw a picture of this mosque as I was browsing through a guidebook the other day...hard not to notice the green coloring, yeah? :) It sure makes for an appealing subject, especially with the architectural design and many interesting details contained within. Plus, that green is always a winning color combination with blue...and would you look at that sky, a perfect match! :) I really like the reflected sunlight projected onto the exterior, giving an additional highlight to the already impressive structure. Hmmm, I wonder if I'll have a picture of my own one day soon. :)) Have a great day.

    Friendly wishes from super hot Phoenix,

    Jason

    Ciao Carlo,

    This one showed up on your profile page this evening, and I just couldn't pass up the many beautiful shades of color in this scene. The sky sets a calm tone over the imagery, and the artificial lights provide a strong contrast of brightness. Combined with the rustic colors and many shapes contained within the building, everything comes together for a most appealing image. Well spotted and timed to catch the transition from day to night. Have a good day ahead. All the best.

    Bonjour Jean,

    Indeed, this is some special light projecting those tones onto the landscape...it really warms up the scene to a great degree. Good thing that's only a metaphor though, you wouldn't want that kind of intense heat. :) There's a smooth flow within this composition as the shoreline leads us into the distance while the gentle waves make their way in from the opposite side of the frame, both working in perfect harmony. Bonne journee. All the best.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Hi Murat,

    And bless you for presenting us with this wonderful image of the dome, a great way to present the Beatitudes! Sure, you may not have been able to obtain the perfect placement looking upwards, but this is nothing to scoff at...in fact, I love what it's done for the dimension. A solid, symmetrical composition which leaves us yearning for more...and that's the beauty that lies within. :) I see this as a fantastic mixture of shapes and pattern, with that added twist of graphism. Smooth light too, you handled it very well...this turned out superb. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Danos,

    I like where, and how you've placed your watermark onto this image...I keep expecting it to roll forward with the turn of the wheel. :) A very pleasant scene, well composed to exude the quaint appeal of this corner of town. I particularly enjoy the warm, slightly golden reflection on the water and small portion of the bridge to highlight the bicycles. Controlled exposure throughout, sharp, and detailed from front to back. Enjoy the new day. All the best,

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Murat
    This is a very serene indoor capture full of religious ambient lending it such a great feel. The exposure is just right nicely highlighted with great depth as the eye is drawn to the intricate structure at the centre. A great photographic work with good sense of scale too. Well done, Congrats

    Hello Gert

    Actually I only partly agree with you. I've been to Barcelona, Venice and Prague (not Krakow), and they can certainly become unbearably crowded. But I usually find if I just get a block or two away from the main thoroughfares, it's often quite peaceful. Tourists are like sheep: they follow the crowds. And of course it helps to visit out of season. But Venice during Carnevale, though busy certainly still had plenty of "undiscovered" side streets.

    Your photograph is an excellent piece of street observation: I like it a lot.

    Regards

    Will

    A charming alleyway teeming with life and lots of gems in this pleasnt ambient. I love the depth, perspective and the features creating such a great visual effect painted by wonderful bright contrasting colours. People presence is always a great value to the shot. Lovely street scene, Congrats.

    Hello Angel

    I don't normally associate Spain with waterfalls, but that only shows my ignorance! This is a beautiful scene, full of freshness and new Spring greenery. I don't know how cold the water might have been, but it looks very inviting.

    Hi Eleu
    That's not the wicked fairy putting a spell on the spinning wheel for Sleeping Beauty to ***** herself on? Sorry, just getting into panto mood!! A very Renaissance feel to this image Elue, love spinner's dress is so delightful and great that she never noticed the “intruder” with the camera. I think this Festival has provided you with lots of material, this is an excellent happy candid shot of the spinner 'at work' colour and lighting is sublime too, Great shot. TFS

    Hi Ana
    The lovely rustic wall acts as a strong complementing element to the intriguing olde worlde fountains coupled by vividness of the buildings. I love the mass of textures registered as well as the fig fits nicely and clinches the shot. It suits the mono version really fine. Wonderful humble rural image worthy the effort. Congrats and TFS

    Hi Ryszard
    The wonderful dramatic sky occupies most of the frame as it rightfully deserved and what a splendid colour contrast it turns out to be - it's mouth watering indeed. I love the perspective, viewpoint and the brilliant lighting with excellent sky effect. Indeed a vibrant scene and much more to savour. Very well done shot! Congrats

    I liked the pop out winding 'path' at low tide which leads into distance of the wide creating a strong and influential contrast when nature unfolds its little beauty. Bird life and fresh green are fine colour addition as a whole and the treatment works fine. It's a joy to view, Congrats

    Judging by the excellent picture you've featured here, you've done a very good job as a Wedding Photographer. You have really captured the moment well, I love the positioning of the decorated old car and the appropriate toning gives it an aged appeal that deserve her fame. Good picture of a grand lady!

    It's an excellent panorama and quite a huge view with the old characterful town by the river grabs attention as main attraction. I can appreciate the much details rendered here, taken from vantage point, exposure works fine offering subtle clarity, pin sharp and colouring is vivid with great overall contrast. A graceful shot thoughtfully taken, Congrats, TFS.
