    Hello Stephen

    Not just the UK but across Europe and Australia too Ferris wheels are currently enjoying a renaissance in popularity after being in vogue in the 70's and becoming less popular in the 80's and 90's. http://thewheelofbrisbane.com.au/ I saw yet another in Brighton. This one in Liverpool fills a vacant space between 2 high rise flats. The fg river makes a nice fg layer. Tfs!

    Hi Jose
    Caryatids are such fantastic subjects aren't they!
    Perhaps many hundreds of years ago they were much much more common - today not so much at all.

    when I was here only a few months ago, it was fascinating trying to image what this site looked like in its prime.

    you came away with a fine photo from your visit.
    the ladder on the right is a reminder of the constant work being done in and around the site.

    thanks for this one
    cheers

    Hello Luciano

    Stunning warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish orange facade of the church, as well as the lemon yellow fg buildngs, with excellent sharpness and saturation. I like the upward pov and the diagonal fg road provides good lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hi Brian
    this is so cool.
    love it when these old wharehouses are turned into condos. that's what this is right?
    basically its a collection of 1 or 2 bedroom apartments?
    I'd love to see the insides too.
    this is certainly the kind of place where i'd choose to live. I wonder how expensive they are, and I wonder what the surrounding area is like.

    wicked subject. love the 'blode wharf' writing on top.
    excellent subject
    cheers

    Hi Christiane
    what i like most about this one are the muted colors.
    nothing is too bright or too oversaturated, and the lighting is soft.
    and the subject material is quite elegant and historic too.
    all in all its a delicate scene, very nice indeed.
    cheers

    Bonjour John

    The boat makes a fine focal point and the dual sides of the canal provide lead in lines and perspective. Well composed with the sides of the canal starting in or near the corners. The orange red posts and boxes at right contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ike.

    Perspective has been well managed and the diffused light has provided maximum shadow detail. Good colour and saturation. The curved side of the display unit provides good lead in lines towards the bg crowd. The columns resemble mushroom stalks! Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano,
    excellent presentation of this section of Fornells with the red boats on the foreground to contrast perfect with the other colours of the photo and especially with the blue of the sea.The brilliant light of the middle of September brings out the details as the beauty of the houses on the opposite bank of the port.Well done.

    Regards,Danos
    PS unfortunately as you wrote in August we have any choice to see a beach empty but only early in he morning and late in the evening.

    Hi Ike,
    impressive the number of the 80 different sizes caves,at Beit-Guvrin.The variety of the colours of the rocks,as the way that excavation occurred from the ancient peoples make the complex of the cave even more effective as important too.
    The visit there,would a great experience for someone,enjoying and admiring the whole place.

    Punchy light contrasts on account of the good density levels which have also given excellent saturation. Well composed with the curved diagonal promenade adding both dynamism and good lead in lines and perspective. Nice reflections and good repetition of the boats. Tfs!
