    Hello Craig,
    this is a superb presentation of the Panathenaic Stadium, a beautiful sight in Athens. It's very difficult to show the whole of the Stadium from an inside point of view but you found a marvelous solution to this problem. Perspective and sense of depth are captivating. Another problem is the strong light, I've seen many photos, even in newspapers and magazines, where the texture of the stadium is too soft, because of the light, almost transparent. You dealt with this very electively too, definition is clear and robust all over. Great work, congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Bonsoir Denis,
    a great composition to present smoothly and effectively this very particular coastal scape. You have combined the horizon and the diagonal superbly, creating a very strong perspective and guiding our glance around the frame. The frame is divided into a rectangular and two triangles and there's interest everywhere. The seascape is crowded with so many geometrical elements, inspecting it is fun. The tonal variations are magnificent. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Ciao Carlo,
    bellissima questa foto per la sua prospettiva dinamica, suoi colori ricchi e brillanti, contrasti molto forti. E divertente come hai fatto le persone sembrare una continuazione del giardino fiorato, la lore presenza e' sorpedente ma non disturba. Il Castello e' molto impressionante e, secondo la tua nota, ha grande interesse anche nel interiore. Un gran effetto fanno anche le tessiture naturali. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Hello Lars,
    this skyline is wonderful too. The buildings are interesting both individually and as a large group, they are very sharp and we can also feel the spaces between them. I like the brilliant light and the harmonious colours in the skyline and the water. The CN Tower is so eye-catching and you placed it very well at the side of the frame. The sky is lovely and conveys movement. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Neyvan,
    a very attractive picture, you seem to have found an ideal backdrop to enhance the impact of your perspective and to invigorate these very intriguing sculptures. The sharpness you achieved, your light and colour management are wonderful. The strong contrasts make this image irresistible. The sky adds meaning to the upward glance of some of the figures. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Gert,

    To play on a popular adult theme these days, you could have even titled this shot as "3 Shades of Red." :) Another wonderful moment on the streets, with people of course (lol), that leaves the imagery open to personal interpretation. It's fun to think of the many possibilities of this interactive moment. You've framed this quite well to geive balance to the scene taking place, you could almost cut this on a vertical half and have two equally interesting pictures. His colorful shirt also adds a little extra something of "flare" to the capture. Roses are red, the pamphlet is blue, I'm intrigued...how about you? :) Have a great weekend. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Bonjour Serge,
    you accentuated the graphical impact of the sign in a striking way, both its shape and colour look stunning in your composition, it makes the upper part of the frame fascinating. It takes a vast, yellow field with fresh tonalities and delightful textures to counterbalance the effect made by the sign. The sky seems to be the perfect backdrop and complement. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Serghei,

    Clever title my friernd, and it fits this scene perfectly! I envy your "old" folders, as this was taken only two years ago!? :) A fun and exciting picture, full of rainbow coloring and liveliness. The fluid dispay brings the scene to life, and of course....who isn't entertained by blowing bubbles? ha That slower shutter speed was a great choice to render this effect, you definitely spotted the opportunity and took advanatage of the action involved. Something seemingly routine can sure result in a fun and delightful image, just like this! Have a great weekend.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    ωραία και ενδιαφέρουσα σκηνή από την προπόνηση των όπτιμιστ. Πολύ καλή η διάταξη των σκαφών μέσα στο κάδρο, φωτεινό και ελκυστικό το σκηνικό πίσω τους με πολλές ενδιφέρουσες πληροφορίες για την περιοχή. Ο σκύλος και πάλι κλέβει την παράσταση, φαίνεται να εποπτεύει τα παιδιά. Μου αρέσει πολύ το χρώμα της θάλασσας και οι έντονες αντιθέσεις. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!

    Bonjour Serge,

    I'm guessing there aren't too many people that would find a street sign all that interesting, but a good photographers eye can clearly envision how it would apply to a picture. This one works very well with the minimal countryside and accompanying colors, and the touch of blue in the sky makes it all come together nicely. Plain and simple, nothing more needed to end up with a pleasant result! Well spotted, framed and presented. Bon weekend. Take it easy.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Hi Bev,

    Great idea, you certainly changed it up a bit and have provi ded an alternative viewpoint. Not being much of a "car guy" myself, I can still appreciate their beauty and historical significances, and this concept takes on a newlevel of interest with a look inside. Far from modern dashboards, this is undoubtedly taking a little trip back in time...amazing how much simpler things were back in the day, no fancy lights and displays. Looks like someone was still trying to make their way into your shot however, the rear view mirror shows a curious participant. :) Now, if only the steering wheel were on the proper side of the vehicle!? lol Have a wonderful weekend. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hello Bev,
    your idea is original and you realized it very effectively. There's wonderful sense of depth, attractive elements and details are marvelously dispersed all over. You achieved excellent definition both in the interior of the car and in the packed setting which works as a fascinating backdrop. There really is much information regarding the style of the cars and the rally's atmosphere. The colours are very pleasant. I love the little "portrait" in the side mirror. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely weekend,

    Hi Paul.
    Superb POV, this small temple lost in the thick forest, which has a wonderful range of colors on their diversity of woodland, creating an image of great beauty, impeccably image captured from a place at a good height.
    Excellent resolution and very good approach.
    Very good job.
    Enjoy a happy Sunday.

    Καλησπέρα Βασίλη,
    άλλο ένα πανέμορφο ελληνικό Νημποριό, δεν το γνώριζα, αλλά φαίνεται υπέροχο στη φωτογραφία σου. Ωραία και η ακτή για περίπατο δίπλα στη θάλασσα. Οι κύκνοι μοιάζουν να υποδέχονται τον επισκέπτη στην ακτή και στο χωριό τους. Το φως και τα χρώματα έχουν εκπληκτική θερμοκρασία και γλυκύτητα, οι λευκοί τόνοι λάμπουν. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!

    Muy interesante nota para conocer el origen del caudal de este rio, ciertamente una rareza de la naturaleza, bonito contraste el de estas rocas grisaceas, circundando esas aguas de tan bonito color verdi-azul.

    Hola querida amiga.
    Despues de tu parentesis, por un cambio de vida tan notable, estoy feliz de que te vayas incorporando a esta familia de amantes de las fotos, tus comentarios me llegan muy proximos y parece que con ellos, estamos mas en contacto en el dia a dia, en este lapsus de tiempo parecia como si nos hubieramos alejado y desconexionado, asi que me ha hecho muy feliz recibir tu comentario y de nuevo felicitarte, por esta nueva etapa de tu vida, en la que espero disfruteis a tope.
    Sobre esta imagen, que no sabia que no habia comentado en el pasado, decirte que tiene tu sello de buen hacer, buscando siempre una terminacion bella y elegante, con el toque de originalidad.
    Gestionaste muy bien las sombras y las luces, nada facil en este tipo de tomas.
    Espero pronto nuevas fotos en tu galeria.
    Como siempre el cariño de vuestros amigos, tanto para ti como para Josep.
    Luis.
