    Hi dear Takero. Looking at the thumbnail I thought the young woman was wearing a most exotic headdress.In the full image I see that it's her arm and hand.First impressions can be quite strange. Lovely face against the blurry surroundings.Regards. Klaudio.

    Hello Gladys,

    As soon as I saw your title, I just had to write a critique on this one. You see, you mention in your note about the Abbey's products: one of those is Buckfast Tonic Wine and did you know that something like 90% of this drink is consumed in Glasgow and Lanarkshire? It is the staple alcoholic drink of so many people, mainly youngsters, here and seems to cause no end of problems. The problem seems to stem from the fact that although it is only about 15% alcohol, it contains and enormous amount of caffeine and the combination of alcohol and caffeine is believed by many to be the cause of the disruptive and aggressive behaviour which seems to stem from drinking the stuff. The authorities have tried to ban the sale of Buckfast Wine in parts of Scotland but attempts at legislation have so far failed.

    Anyway, Gladys, that's all by the by for this is a delightful and very appealing photograph which shows this spendid building perfectly.

    I love your composition which is not only classical, obeying all the rules, but is also very pleasing. The colours are delightful, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Have you and Les had the opportunity to have a tour of the inside of this lovely place? And are you allowed to take photographs inside?

    Hi Miro. Looking at the thumbnail I was perplexed but I see that we have two images here. I do like the top one in particular as I find the place enchanting with its well preserved old town look, the unique architecture and jolly atmosphere. The bottom half gives us many details to admire. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hi Daniel. You have left the structural certainties of streets and houses and ventured into the chaotic world of nature. A fine POV which captures the mysteries of the rock pools and the promise for discoveries for children and adults as they peer into the pools of still water looking for shells, little crabs, maybe a small fish.lovely light and a sense of immense space. Regards. Klaudio.

    Salut Herve. There is something nostalgic and also touching about this image. Cold night, snow on the ground, a solitary figure looking at things that possibly remind him of his childhood, his grandparents. The tilt of his head and his square shoulders remind me of Jacque Tati's Mr Houlot. Amicalement. Klaudio.

    Hi Pilar. There is a S.A. song by the name Pilar which is very beautiful. I took a few photos of these funny positions inside Hagia Sophia and it looks like a new form of worship when several people are involved. Great exposure inside this dark church. Regards. Klaudio.
