    Hello Gert,

    How nice to see photographs from where you live - and these two are excellent. Your note too describes the location well.

    Actually, although both photos are excellent, I think I prefer your workshop one because we can see more details of the people enjoying themselves here in the warm and sunny weather - lots of interesting things to look at like the dog in the water and the young boy with his Mohican haircut. And, judging by the scanty clothing of some people, this must have been quite a warm day.

    As I say, both pictures are excellent but for me your workshop image is the winner with lovely light and natural colours, perfect exposure and exquisite technical qualities.

    But what is that at the far end of the jetty on the right? Is it a painting? It's quite big.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello dear Mesut,

    What a lovely smiling face this sculpture has! And so unlike so many ancient sculptures of people with angry or proud features. And, yes, there is a definitely likeness with your inserted photograph of Jean Marais too!

    I can fully understand why you love Aphrodisias so much - it must be a wonderful place to spend time exploring and walking in the footsteps of so many people from almost two thousand years ago. A very fine photograph with good light and contrasts, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. And a novel idea too of inserting a photograph of someone from the present time.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Lars,

    So in fact you have been to Edinburgh! In fact, I well remember critiquing a picture of yours quite a while ago - it was of a reflection of Edinburgh's Surgeons' hall in the glass frontage of the Festival Theatre. And that was particularly of interest to me, being a fellow of that same hall, though I am now retired.

    This is a beautiful photograph of St. Giles' Cathedral (even although it isn't actually a cathedral as the Scottish Church no longer has bishops). I know this place well, particularly as here becomes very busy at the time of the Edinburgh Festival in August.

    I suspect that this was taken in the evening with the warm light striking the west end of the cathedral and with the statue of Sir Walter Scott in front of it. Your photograph is well composed with all the elements nicely placed in the frame, the light and colours are lovely, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    una de las cosas que me llamaran la atención en colonia fue que las casas no son blancas como sería común en las casas portuguesas de aquel tiempo, pero el estilo es lo mismo.hermoso este punto de vista con las fachadas. me gusta.

    Hello Rob,

    You have written an interesting note, including a link to your fine photograph of "Hope", and shown us a lovely picture of "Amor".

    The light falling on the face and sides of this simple yet striking sculpture makes its and its vibrant colours stand out brilliantly against the soft natural background of trees and bushes. An excellent bold composition with lovely light, rich colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Rob,

    Een heel mooi symbool, maar heden ten dage blijft er niet veel van over, maar dit zal wel aan mijn leeftijd liggen denk ik.
    Maar dit neemt niet weg, dat uw foto heel mooi genomen is, met een wazige achtergrond.
    Goed foto werk, bedankt.

    Prettig weekend,
    John.
