    Hi Andy!
    I guess I missed this one when you posted it! I've not visited this place when I was there. Great moment, the light beams towards the sculptures makes the place magical. Beautiful shot!

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    Une très belle atmosphère se dégage de cette photo. La très fine couche de brume, bien éclairée, permet au troupeau de se détacher. Excellente gestion de l'exposition.
    Bravo !

    Hi Alessandro!
    This must be a magnificent place, surrounded by the mountains. Very beautiful, indeed! I like this architecture a lot, made with the stone of the region.

    Hi Rosemary!
    This is a very beautiful old square. I like the old architecture, the colours and the composition, with the lamp in foreground. The quality is very good, in spite of the cloudy sky.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    The beauty of this shot comes from the high contrast between colourful fruits in their baskets and the dark platform. Well done !

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    It is as if a veil is being lifted, to gradually reveal the beauty of the golden domes. I feel as if I should whisper, so as not to disturb the peaceful scene.
    Wonderfully atmospheric!

    Hola Pilar,

    This looks like a most attractive city, with many tall buildings proudly displaying their grandeur. But it is the light that adds to its beauty. The city is illuminated in the evening light, contrasting favourably with the shady f/g.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Trevor,

    This does look like a busy, fun place to spend summer holidays. A boardwalk makes a very different walkway to the normal promenade!
    It's a very well composed shot, the roof anchoring the f/g, the boardwalk creating a fine guide, with colourful huts, a plethora of boats and lots of people to more than satisfy our interest.
    I just love how those huts have been packed into the rocky hillside!

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Cedric,

    It doesn't say that you used a tripod, in which case, this is a superb shot. I find interior shots very hit and miss but you have captured the details, here, with wonderful clarity and colours.

    Hello Peter,

    Like yourself, I'm not a winter person.
    You took me by surprise when I saw this shot, then I realised that it was taken in February, 2008!
    This is one of the satisfying aspects of winter, the transformation of the ground and the trees by the snow. Suddenly, it all looks beautiful and pristine ... for a short time! The long shadows add a special artistry. A very nice contre jour!

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    This looks like an attractive holiday location!

    I like how you have enlivened the scene by the use of the colourful boats in the f/g.
    A very well composed photograph, with the use of differing, horizontal layers to move us across the scene.

    Hello Rosemary,

    This really is a stunning interior shot. I think that, on this occasion you have 'cracked the nut'!
    The pov is very well chosen and includes so many artistic and textural details, that it is a joy to behold. The rich hues of the lower section grab immediate attention, whilst the organ pipes lead quite naturally to the much lighter patterned roof section.

    I found it very difficult to judge your w/s. On the whole, I think I opted for the one with the selective blue increases but, without having them all on screen together, I cannot verbalise why!! I'm sure that's not much help!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    The w/s is a useful addition for helping us to understand the sense of scale in this huge cave. The colours and the textures are nicely captured, whilst the inclusion of the f/g wall gives a sense of depth to the mysterious, black 'hole'.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Mariusz,

    It is hard to recognise this fountain from your original shot! but, I have to say, I love this new perspective. The spouting head and sunlit, rippling water make a superb f/g as a preliminary to the two tone town hall.
    In the first shot, the fountain has little significance; here it dominates.
    A great idea and great execution.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)
