    Hi Ana
    haha...so he was a hungry boy! I bet he didn't want to leave you guys :)

    smart intelligent dog i'm sure.

    he sets the stage for the landscape very well, our eyes are drawn to him first, then we move upwards and into the bg of the image. lovely shot that was i'm sure was unexpected.
    cheers

    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.

    well shot

    Hi Jean
    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.
    thanks for this warm one

    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,
    Ray

    Beam me up, Lisa!!
    This is super!
    It looks so scientific, so modern, as if what you see is not reality!
    The robots are coming at us from all directions.

    Wonderfully sharp and very nicely cropped.

    Hello John,

    Here you go again Hercule Cannon!
    It's amazing that you have been able to identify and find a video of this lady, incidentally viewed at Covent Garden!

    It's a very sharp photograph, containing all the details to establish her location and her intentions. I wonder how many cd's she sold. I have to ask, did you buy one?
    The inclusion of the bannister helps to insinuate the presence of an upper balcony, perhaps where you were situated to get this fine view.

    My only disappointment is her dress.
    I would have liked something a little more 'in keeping' for an opera singer! Then you could have showered her with flowers!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,

    You have 'Un Violon sur le Sable' in England we have 'Proms in the Park'. (http://www.arevents.co.uk/BBC-Proms-in-the-Park-2015.htm). Music outside always seems so much fun!

    This is a fine night shot with good use of the colourful, artificial lights, splitting the darkness and drawing attention to the artists.
    The hint of an audience adds a sense of place and mood.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    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.
    that orange color is outstanding.
    charming subject matter too, well done.

    Bonjour Denis,

    Tom O' Donnell (gunbud) used to photograph from his canoe and often featured the front of his boat in his photographs, in a similar way to this. It is a most effective and engaging way of directing viewers from the f/g into the b/g. Here, we have been able to see the inside of the boat and see the details of its crab/lobster pot.
    It's a sharply detailed shot with good, natural colours, under a very attractive sky.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Eleu
    now this is something we don't see everyday is it.
    I think i've seen similar construction in Palm Springs.

    but this is pretty neat, looks like its STUCK in the rock!
