    Terrific shot, Steve.
    Very dynamic, with the various shapes of metal railing in the foreground, and the pose of the gentleman facing the foaming sea. Just a great shot.

    Hi Paul.
    A delightful shot which captures the colour and interesting details of the Spanish colonial architecture. This square looks very well maintained. I like the touches of bright colour in the man's t-shirt and the umbrella. Looks like a cathedral behind. Nicely presented, and good note.

    Greetings, Jorge.
    I love this shot. The high ridges and trees emerging from the cloud or mist, and the hint of pink in the sky as the sun rises. What a fantastic view to have from your room. One of the beautiful shots on TE today. What a pity the trees have been damaged by storm this year.

    Hello Kumar.
    A wonderful shot. You'd never see that in our country! I love the hazy, slightly over-exposed surroundings, which make the truck and its contents really stand out. And the slight tilt adds a sense of dynamism, movement. A very atmospheric photo.

    Hello Maria.
    Great wintry photo taken with basic camera. Delightful composition making the vegetation and wooden fence stand out in the snowy haze. You processed the image well to create a very atmospheric tonality. A superb image.

    Hello Daniel.
    A very pleasing landscape shot, with great depth and some eye-catching features such as the roads snaking through the valley between the fields. It's a really excellent 'postcard' style shot, but I mean that in a good way - a classical composition.

    Hello Luciano.
    Very nice landscape shot. Very interesting water courses or lakes threading away through the landscape towards the horizon and well detailed dark clouds, menacing perhaps, overhead. I like the green tones and the luminosity of the water. A couple of human figures there too? Whatever processing you did here has been done very tastefully.

    A very nice shot indeed. Perfect exposure against the sun in Autumn. Lovely rays of sunshine and long shadows on the dead leaves. Very well done.

    Hi Klaudio.
    Yes, we know there are many good shots to be had of this little shack, don't we, in the varying conditions and light which beset this hillside. I always turn my head when I go past it. This is a nice one with the long shadows of evening and peacefully grazing cows. Did they know you were hurrying back with your camera? You placed the shack and the curve of the track well in the left lower corner. Exquisite, really. Very bucolic.

    Hello Jean.
    You have a fine series of photos from Indonesia. This one has a very effective panoramic crop, and I like the fact that there's no sky - it would just distract from the focal point of the picture. It's nicely balanced, and our attention moves from the brightly coloured boat to the playing children. Very nice shot.
    Regards,

    Hi Kasia.
    Great timing to catch the banana-laden bike being trundled past those lovely blue doors. What a great combination of colours - Swedes will love it! There are even bits of blue on the bike and the fellow's clothing. And I'm most impressed by the size of that padlock on the right edge! Great shot - simple but but striking, and 'tells a story' as they say.

    Hi Stephen.
    You've got some great photos from Germany. This one was taken from an excellent viewpoint, creating a strong sense of perspective and depth. The late Summer sunshine and the happy looking throng of people add to the atmosphere. If you did some straightening to remove lens distortion, then you did a very good job.

    Hi Bev.
    Going in for some modern architecture recently, I see. This is the modern day Stonehenge. Is it not? Superbly timed to catch the rising sun peeking through that archaic druid skyline. No doubt all those skyscrapers were located with respect to the positions of the sun, moon and stars, something I'd never considered before. Great shot with exquisite colour tones and gradient in the sky. High res version looks even better.

    Hello Pierre.
    I like your b/w photography. This one is a great choice for the treatment because of the large area of 'white' sky. It's a bold composition but it effectively captures the mood of mid to late autumn. I love the viewpoint over the bend in the road, the way the road fades into mist, and the bare tree breaking the horizon. Very atmospheric, and good tonality in this one.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Satyakki.
    I think this is a very good b/w photo, very well cropped to create an interesting composition. Great use of shallow depth of field, and the blurry bit in the bottom left adds a real documentary feeling to the photo. I like the row of men's heads with the boy's above. The expression on his face makes one curious about what he may be looking at, but he is certainly holding on tight to his father during the hours of boredom and frustration. I've read about the 'demon' in the news services, and I believe this photo captures the whole subject very well. My favourite photo of the day, by a long way. I can't believe that after 144 views this is the first critique. What is wrong with people?

    Hi Ourania.
    Wonderful interior shot. The chapel scene itself is delightful, with the candles and the marvellous inset window, with its little collection of objects and eye-catching blue paint-work which makes a great combination of textures with the stones. Nice note, too.

    Hi Steve.
    I agree with Benny. Fine angle for this well exposed shot. Only wheely bins identify the epoch. Thanks to the train enthusiasts we still have stations like this in existence. I've done the trip to Drysdale a couple of times. Must have a look at more photos of your trip.

    Hi Malgo.
    Wonderful atmospheric capture here, with excellent viewpoint. This photo makes Amalfi seem like a wonderful place to visit. It seems to be still warm even at night in mid-October. I like the way the photo captures the people walking towards the couple, and it's nice to know the bride has taken her shoes off.

    Hello Francesco.
    A superbly timed and well composed photo. So much sunlight, but such a dark cloud! I love the way the mother and daughter appear totally unconcerned about the menacing mass above them. You have a great perspective and sharp details. Delightful capture and great note too.
