    Hello Danos,

    I love how you have given us such good details of the area surrounding the monastery, for it shows its precarious situation! It makes one wonder how they were able to transport materials up to the location for building purposes! It is truly an amazing building in an equally amazing place!
    I noticed the cloning and read your note to Gyorgy.
    It is a pity but I understand that it would have spoilt the overall impression of the monastery!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Kik,

    This is a great follow-on photograph, giving fine, close-up details of the castle.
    You have composed this perfectly symmetrical.
    The windows, which have stunning clarity, create an excellent 3D effect. The details are pin sharp throughout.

    Hello Fabiano,

    I have never been to Milan, so this eye-catching scene holds great interest. I love your viewpoint, using the statue and his sword, to guide towards the beauty of the magnificent cathedral.
    You have achieved a fine, sharp exposure and an excellent sense of depth.
    Milan seems to be a very busy place, especially in this area.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Chris,

    This is a most interesting piece, modern and ancient at the same time! I love how the pyramid shapes are integral to the pattern, yet not dominating.
    It becomes a curious, optical illusion as you look at it! The bottom seems shorter than the top!

    There have been some excellent historical programmes about Egypt, recently. I think some interesting discoveries were made quite close to Alexandria!

    Did you find it dangerous, travelling in Egypt at this time?

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    This just reminds me that the Cycle Grand Prix will soon be taking place in the area where I live. I have been away on holiday for the last couple of years and missed it! Let's hope I will be around this year!

    It's a fine action shot!
    From facial expressions, I think the guy at the front is making the most effort and the other two are taking advantage of his slip stream.
    Three is a great number for composition and you have placed these cyclists strongly in the frame, lots of space into which they can cycle.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Craig,

    This is one amazing building!
    I have stared at it long and hard, trying to grasp what it recalls in my memory. Then, I realise, it reminds me of gills!
    Water passes over shapes like this to remove oxygen from the water ... or so I believe!!
    Whatever, it is one strange building and makes a super, unusual entry for TE.

    Hello Rob,

    This is like a piece of psychedelic art!
    I love how perception changes as you view it!
    One minute it is a flat geometric pattern; then it is a shape with depth!
    Very different, very original.

    Hello Jean,

    What a beautiful, tiled floor.
    It can only really be appreciated from this elevated position and your inclusion of the feet and part figures, explains your viewpoint. From your thumbnail, I couldn't make sense of the photograph but all became clear, full size!

    I'm so glad that beauties from the past are shared on this site. It means we are able to share experiences that would, otherwise be completely unknown to us! This is a fine capture of a beautiful piece of art.

    Thank you for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    This is a beautiful time of day for photography.
    The sky looks so clear and atmospheric!
    It makes a fine b/g against which to show the houses, drifting into shadow and ultimately slumber!
    I like your viewpoint, the strong positioning of the spire and how the buildings follow the slope of the hillside.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Erhan,
    Amazing skyscrapers. This is not at all like the Moscow I saw 30 years ago...;-) I feel there is not much city planning going on here. Every oligarch builds his own skyscraper in any style he likes, anywhere he likes. Your photo has a superb clarity and the the light and colours are very attractive.

    Hello Jorge,
    I never cease to wonder about the incredibly rich cultural heritage of India. There seems to be an endless number of impressive forts and temples and palaces in this country. This is a stunning view of the different kinds of structures of Kumbalhgarh. The visitors seen in the street add life and colours, which I always appreciate, but the ramparts and hills are fully enjoyed all on their own anyway.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Serghei,
    So you have started a career in fashion photography? This very elegant lady in grey, and some blue, certainly looks like a model for some probably very expensive house of fashion. She has the perfect way of leaning on the railings above the water. It's a superb combination of just grey and blue (and some skin). You did perfectly well to crop the original. This is perfectly straight on the spot, and no bags beside her feet.
    Congratulations on a very good photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Noel,
    I am quite fascinated by how differently "we" (not necessarily you and I) look at photography. I know that many people would do almost anything to keep people out of their photos, while I usually would regard a picture like this empty and dull without some persons enlivening the view and adding colours. This is no doubt a fine castle, but to my mind your photo has become much more interesting and captivating by the inclusion of these young women and their "selfishness". Nobody actually seems to take a photo of the castle, so I wonder what brought them here. The one to the left has a very elegant posture and all by herself makes your photo highly worthwhile. To that I can add that technically it is a superb photo. The colours and sharpness are great.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Daniel,
    The mountains and the water might have been Iceland, but the village is very very different. It is a beautiful view and the quite warm light is well captured. There is a perfect balance between the dark red brick roofs and the green hills. Looking at the larger version the sharpness of the bricks and the ripples on the water is impressive.
    Have a nice week,

    You positioned yourself well for this nicely timed photo with good sharpness and perfect exposure. You were close enough to capture the runners' expressions. They seem to be in a good shape and not yet exhausted. It's interesting to see that the woman's name is Lisa, while the man is called 9158 :-).
