    Hello Bev,
    you have managed to keep the image sharp throughout giving the picture a really nice depth under a most interesting sky.

    Hello Stephen,
    I very much like your view point which presents the gracious curves perfectly,it is well exposed despite some challenging light conditions.

    Hello Leslie,

    Good to see you posting again!

    This is certainly a rickety barn as revealed by your sharp image.
    I fear for the safety of the tractor under its roof!

    The low sun has given the barn a lovely, burnished colour.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Denis,

    You timed and composed this perfectly so that the long, low sunlight is burnishing the diagonal hillside, whilst the valley below has been plunged into shadows.

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You were very observant!
    The fence makes a most attractive, geometric shadow pattern with strong black and white contrasts.
    I might have cropped the f/g trees so that the strong pattern was not distracted in any way.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Ike,

    The name Flodden immediately reminded me that there was a battle between The English and the Scots at Flodden in 1513. I wonder if there was any connection!

    Walls can tell us so much.
    We can see the materials used inits construction and the style or purpose. This was so obviously defensive!
    Above, we can see a new style, the stones being so much more worked or 'dressed' and probably for a much more social purpose.

    Was the detailed section to the right a dedication?
    It looks to have writing on the lintel.

    The colours are warm and welcoming, a whole new mood from its original purpose!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    Your photograph surprised me because of the flatness of the land, just not what I expected from Romania.

    It's a lovely serene photograph, long, sleepy and calm.
    The repeating succession of moored boats, along with the soft light, gives this impression.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Les,
    Good to see you again! This old barn may be in need of some repairs but it makes for a lovely photographic subject. Perfectly exposed with beautiful warm lights and colours and top class clarity. I have to confess I would be sorely tempted to move closer and have a glimpse at the old tractor, which also looks worthy of attention.

    Hello Murat,

    You have chosen a really good viewpoint so that the strong textures of the wall can be appreciated before it leads us effectively round the subtle curve into the distance. It's a lovely composition!

    I have a feeling that the couple on your right just stepped out into your shot but they haven't spoilt it, they suggest movement.
    In fact, the figures add a sense of relaxation.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean-Claude,
    An agreeable reminder of warm sunny days when a trip on the river beckons. The canoe is well placed and animate the scene. Lights and colours are pleasant to view and the clarity very good indeed.

    Hello Piotr,
    The funicular station is nicely positioned in the frame and supplies an interesting focal point whilst sitting well against the mountain backdrop. Good management of the light and shadow contrasts and excellent rendering of the textural detail.

    Hello Stephen,

    A whole new aspect gives a pleasing change from the common, centre aisle, leading towards the altar. I really like the whole, curved effect, starting from a strong vertical.
    The soft lighting is very pleasing and calming.
    I think I would have cropped the hint of the window? in the dome as we can't really tell what it is and it is a little distracting.

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Good Morning ~Craig,

    Glad to hear that you are better. I was wondering where you were.
    I've had a particularly nasty stomach bug ... glad that's over too!

    Roof top scenes give us a whole new perspective on familiar places.
    What a variety of roofs, windows and heights we can see here!
    By their orientation, it is possible to work out the situation of the road.
    I like how the small detail of the Seine adds a separation line and contrast.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ryszard,
    No sign of the 'Jolly Roger' either:-) I like how you have framed the shot and positioned the boat in relation to the two rocky pinnacles. Good division also between sea a sky. Excellent technical quality.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    What you have seen here, is a lovely combination of different lines and geometric shapes, working together in the one frame.
    Add to this, the wonderful, mixture of textures and the scene is almost palpable.
    Ancient buildings and settings are wonderful for providing this mixture of details.

    The lady on her mobile phone is the absolute antithesis, in that she is dressed in modern clothes and using a gadget that could never have been imagined when these buildings were erected!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)
