    Hello Maria,
    Again an interesting work of graffiti and a person who picks up some of the colours of the mural. I like the curve of the road and the stone benches in the foreground. You filled the frame very nicely.

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    Wow! This is no ordinary snapshot which most of us post on this website - this is the stuff of photographic exhibitions and the sort of image people present to gain their fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society!

    The light, of course, is simply stunning, as are the colours in the sky and their reflections on the water, smoothed by your long exposure. A wonderful and pleasing composition too with the boardwalk perfectly leading us to the little boathouse. And what I really like is that there is still some light on the face of that building too - far better than had it simply been silhouetted against that sky.

    Oh, and an interesting note as well.

    Stunning!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    What an amazing experience this must have been for you! I know that these creatures wouldn't attempt to eat you but is it not dangerous being in such close proximity to them? I mean, one delicate swing of that enormous and strong tail could surely inflict a lot of damage to a puny human being, couldn't it?

    Your note is fascinating and I can appreciate fully the quote from Tim Winton - he describes very well what that experience must have been like.

    And this is a fabulous photograph too, considering that you took this (and the workshop pictures) with a small compact underwater camera.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Noel,
    It's an interesting story and a fine photo. For me it's impossible to have a clear idea of whether I like these structures just from looking at one photo. They couldn't be converted into something useful as easily as many traditional factory buildings. On the other hand the inclusion of the lady and her dog in the foreground no doubt adds a spot of undeniable beauty to this composition. These tiny figures manage to balance the huge structures across the water very nicely, as well as adding life and colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    I'm so proud of you, just like John says ;-), but I always wonder why you save photos like this for several years. The door in the door is interesting and I like the wooden details. I also like the connection between the man's red shirt and the red sign on the door. The wires going here and there along the wall make this unmistakably Indian.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS Could there be a connection between the two lakes, so that when the plug is removed in one of them water will stream to the other? ;-)

    Hello Gerrit,
    Yes, the light, framing and atmosphere have some likeness to Hopper. It's a slight pity you couldn't remove the furniture, but I guess it wasn't possible , and the atmosphere would probably have changed ;-). It's a nice photo as it is anyway.
    Best regards,

    Hi Malgo,

    This is a lovely photograph! The architecture and that doorway are interesting but the inclusion of the man with his bright red top in the foreground makes this one just so very appealing - Gert and Craig would be proud of you!

    Yes, I've seen doors like this before - we see them here in Britain in old warehouses and truck garages - people can go in and out of the small door easily but the main (bigger) doors can be opened to allow carts or large trucks to enter and exit. Don't you see doors like this in Poland? I'm sure there are some! But, yes, I agree - why is the small door so high off the ground? - maybe to discourage dogs, chickens, etc.?

    A fine photograph with lovely light and fine vibrant colours, perfect exposure, good composition and, of course, the man in red! An interesting note too.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Giovanni

    What a glorious spring day, and these lucky people are making the most of it by going fishing with a view. Such a beautiful and unusual backdrop. It's not every day one gets to go fishing in the backyard of a castle. Wonderful colours and sharpness. Superb light control. I particularly like the way the light shines on the undulating hills in the foreground. Any fresh fish to snavel afterwards? Yummy!

    Cheers ed un abbraccio

    Howdy Ray,

    Hee, hee, as soon as I read your title, I thought of "Steamboat Willie", the Disney cartoon film which first featured Mickey Mouse!

    But this is a much more serious image - and an excellent one too. I presume that this was taken from a scanned photograph or colour transparency as I think the Pentax K1000 was a 35mm film camera. So, considering all that, this is a photograph of amazingly good quality.

    I love the softness of the water caused by a longish exposure time and the colours, especially in the rocks on the right side, are divine. Perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    Wow! This is one stunning photograph! Because blue and yellow are complementary colours, landscapes comprising ochres and yellows and deep blue skies always work an absolute treat and this is no exception.

    Your composition is fabulous, the tallest of these pinnacles dominating the foreground and the scene generally and poking itself into that sky where the high clouds almost seem to explode.

    Fabulous strong light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity throughout.

    And what an interesting and informative note about this place too! A map reference would have been a good thing to include, though, but I have to admit that with Google maps I found this place easily enough and also had a "virtual drive" around the streets of Cervantes too, though unfortunately wasn't able to savour the lobsters!

    Fabulous!

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    What an amazing work of art this is. I love the Moorish design and this is one of the best examples I've seen of it. Lovely blue tones and geometries. Excellent light management and Rule of Thirds framing.

    Hi Lisa
    Superb Natural Creations, what a scenic delight we have here! so glad to see this beautiful rugged geological formations through your eyes and you were there at the right time of day. The composition is very in your face which suits me perfectly showing the full depth of the surroundings to give the shot more scale, you have captured the light perfectly full of vivid detail, amazing rich colours, shapes and shadows. It's the contrasts of colours that I find so attractive. It's a spectacular location, are you sure it's not the moon? Delicious shot and tfs,
    Congrats
    P/s Tx to your positive heart warming compliments at same time am concerned on the latest news abt bad weather downunder, Take good care

    Your subject is among my favourites, although I prefer to be on the other side of the glass. The little girl on the outside gazing in and wondering is very symbolic and gives us a wonderful sense of scale. Superb colours and light management under difficult conditions.

    Hello Ann,

    This is a delightful photograph, so simple in its composition but also very pleasing to the eye. I think you have been wise to exclude the sky (which, I suspect, might have been overly bright) but it is, of course, the inclusion of the man in red and the child in green walking so purposefully towards each other on the little patch of dry sand which really brings this image alive.

    Beautiful light and glorious colours, perfect exposure and composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Dear Serghei

    You really have the travel bug, like our friend Malgo, and are always on the move. Such a beautiful composition this is, including the iconic cherry blossoms and the re-constructed castle. We do not see photos of Hiroshima, and only think of it because of the terrible tragedy of the Atomic Bomb, but this photo proves that beauty and hope are eternal. Excellent work and thank you for sharing this important photo.
