    Hi Will
    Thanks for your kind comments about my Taling Chan photo ("social realism" - I like that, that's what I would like my photography to be) and a link to this image.
    As you say, her face indicates she has lots of stories to tell. In the shade of her hat you managed to capture it in details which otherwise would have been obscured by excessive contrast.

    Hi Will
    An image that really makes me want to be there, especially when you say "January" in the note and we see the sunlight that bathes the whole scene and when I remember I visited Seville in December and it was exactly like this: warm and sunny.
    Great candid, one of your rich collection of b&w shots from around the world.
    Have a nice Bank Holiday!

    Hi Rob
    I really like train photos and this one is so well taken. Great composition with enough space at the bottom to show lines of the tracks which draw the eye towards the other parts of the picture.

    Hi Chris
    Maybe the sky is not "as spectacular as some" and yet I really like the various layers from yellow-orange to light blue. You rarely see this kind of blue in "perfect sunset" photos and I think the sculpture looks at its best on exactly that kind of background.
    I agree portrait is a good choice of format. Also, great idea to include the people at the bottom to give the image an honest context.
    Best wishes and happy travels.

    Hi Gert
    So you went riding the iron rooster in the 80s to see the new version of the new China... Did you meet Paul Theroux (not sure when exactly he was there but the book was published in 1988).
    You captured beautiful colours and light that truly give justice to this awe-inspring landscape and you used classic composition rules with the foreground interest mirroring the shapes visible in the distance.
    Nice glimpse at the lively station scene in WS.
    Have a nice day

    Another beautiful church in Umbria survived the earthquake so there is hope. It's surrounded by tape but in one piece.

    Dear Lisa
    I'm of course sorry for you, but... what a nice place to do work. ;-)
    Well done on stopping to take a photo as you captured a fantastic spectacle of sunset. The colours and light are stunning.
    The rock does indeed remind me of the skin of some giant reptile. :-)

    Hi Benny
    Interesting daily life photo from a fascinating part of the world. I really like your choice of composition with the camera focusing on the two girls in the distance but also capturing the out of focus one closer to the photographer. The artist's tool of DOF well used.

    Hi again Takero
    Perfect timing, composition and crop. The shallow DOF makes the viewer concentrate on the main subject yet the still visible surroundings convey the atmosphere of the festival.
    Arigato!

    The light is so beautiful in this image, especially the rays of sunlight and the lining of the cloud. I like the juxtapostion of the two shapes.

    I'm glad to see the church is still there. It would be a great loss.
    Still, very sad about all the people who lost their lives and families who lost their loved ones. They cannot be repaired like buildings can.

    Fantastic colours and well managed evening light. I like the way the frame is divided in two parts: warm and cold-blue. The reflections in water are also very beautiful.
