    Hello Muhammad,

    It must have been extremely difficult to decide how to compose your photograph in this exquisite location, for there are so many angles beckoning to you.
    As it is, you have opted for the colourful pool, shimmering with light and carrying excellent reflections of the pillars and the figures.
    The white and gold arches make a sumptuous b/g, their repeating gaps, offering deeper glances into the interior of the mosque.
    The figures are so important to help us judge the scale of the whole.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Lars.
    A delicious scenery, small towns at water's edge have an added charm always, in this case the typical houses, the church with its high tower and the group of trees, create a postcard dream.
    Excellent POV, with very good lighting, color and sharpness to enjoy the details.
    Very good work. I like it
    Enjoy a happy day.
    Best wishes.
    Luis.

    Hello Dear Constantino,

    This is a beautiful setting.
    No wonder the lady has stopped to gaze and absorb the scenery.

    For your part, you have composed the shot extremely well, the lady situated off-centre and with the gap in the rocks, attracting her gaze, situated on a diagonal from her view.
    Your use of b&w gives it a period charm.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    This seems like a lovely, calm day for a rowing lesson! The position of the man-in-charge brings back recollections of a pirate chief, commanding his men to row stronger back to their ship ... do I live in a dream world!

    It's a very original shot, well composed and with bright colours to attract the eyes, both on the rowing boat and on the ship.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Serge,

    I never cease to be entranced by Strasbourg! It is a city full of beautiful buildings, canals and flower decorations!
    You have shown us evidence of all of these features in your photograph.
    Your use of the f/g triangle has given depth, across the canal to the details of the timber-framed houses. It's interesting that part of the walkway appears to be on stilts, whilst the rest is solid.

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    You have tried hard to show us the beautiful decorations on the veranda. It is so difficult from this angle as we are desperate to see the repeating colourful arches on the back wall, too, but you have given enough evidence to convince us of the attractiveness of the building.
    I love the colours and what looks like a highly decorative family crest.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Nicolas,

    I hope that the translator has worked correctly, to tell me that this is part of a nursing home! I imagined that it was a home made from a huge barrel that someone had adapted for a summer house!
    It's use is not that important when discussing photography and what is important is your excellent, sharp exposure and fine composition. All the features are strongly placed in the frame.
    The dappled light is quite enchanting.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Noel,

    When I read the title, I thought you were referring to yourself as the voyager ... having returned from your tour of Hungary!

    It is minimalistic but still carries great strength from the strong positioning of the statue and the sun, with no other distractions in the frame.

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    This is a most expansive note, to accompany your photograph and gives a very good account of what could be seen and enjoyed at this interesting location.
    I know your love of beaches and, in this instance, you have expanded your view to include boats and buildings, too.
    It looks like a cosey and beautiful place, the natural beauty to enjoy but without being inundated with people selling trinkets!
    I like how you have composed the photograph, the red of the boat and of the house, linking nicely.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ally,
    A good high point of view for this presentation of a part of the Forbidden City.
    You enjoyed beautiful weather in Beijing. That makes the colours look so attractive.
    I note that the number of visitors has increased a lot since the time that I was there.
