    Hello Brian,

    What a mixture within the one scene!
    The f/g shows a cosy, very contemporary, al fresco bar whilst immediately beyond are the cranes, solid work horses, nothing to do with contemporary living! The b/g has the skyscrapers, more of the modern era.
    A beautifully composed shot, sharp and detailed, showing the HDR? style that you have used throughout this series.
    I do like that you have been able to capture the DLR in the scene, too!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    A very colourful, busy, market scene which allows us to see the daily life of the Italians. The details are sharp with just a hint of movement blur to suggest the reality of the scene.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Olivier,

    The light on the mountainside is entrancing! I like your crop, emphasising the steepness of the slope and its fissures, filled with snow.
    A fine composition.
    One of the most beautiful shots I have seen of Iceland.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Lars,

    This is a fine view of the bridge, symbolically leading from the supported f/g into the unknown!

    Tomorrow will be a massive, irreversible decision!
    I have to disagree with Danos; the decision has to be NO! There are so many questions about currency, debt, businesses, etc. and several centuries of co-operation that unite us.
    The original reason for unification was because Scotland was in terrible financial trouble. Let's hope that that never happens again!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    From the thumbnail, I thought this was just a misty day, shrouding the skyscrapers.
    Full size, it took me a while to actually see the falls! But, it is a very interesting shot, nicely composed, with a wealth of attention being directed towards the spectacular view. The people, with their colourful attire, set a contrast against the misty b/g and, also, give a real understanding of the scale.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rosemary,

    A very well observed shot, where careful composition is obvious in the interesting study of this gentleman. It's a moment too good to miss, especially as he is totally unaware that he is being studied!

    I love the Beatles words and music.
    Did you see the programme on Monday of the 50th anniversary of them being on the Ed Sullivan Show?
    Great!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephane,

    I just love how observant and how compositionally aware you were when composing this shot. It was a great decision to frame the church in the gateway, giving a sense of perspective and artistry in the same moment.

    Hello Noel,

    The vertical format was a good choice, enabling you to create a shot which emphasises the height and imposing nature of the column. Just the two elements of column and sun, each strongly positioned for maximum effect.
    The fact that the statue surmounting the column has wings gives it a very ethereal quality.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Swapan,

    You have captured a shot which shows the enjoyment, the beauty and the suggested movement of these two dancers, set against a most unexpected b/g. The scene just infects us with their pleasure!
    A most pleasing photograph.
