    Hi Malgo again.
    Glad I found this one, which explains so much and shows the exterior view very well.

    Ciao Silvio.
    A very pleasing daily life shot, with nice sunlight falling on the street and buildings to provide the highlights. The steps with the balustrade are delightful, and you have really made this tiny piazza seem alive. Well done.

    Hello Malgo.
    You get around!
    An interesting composition of this interesting architecture. If I look at it too long I'll feel dizzy. The other photos help me to make sense of this structure. A beach with palm trees?

    Hi Stephen.
    Your wide angle shot has a certain feeling of enormity about it, the way the building towers over us in the foreground and diminishes with a very strong perspective effect. A couple of towers in the distance, a pattern of reconstructed arches, and a figure in red - what more does one need?

    Hello Federico.
    A good b/w picture, well composed and showing the stormy sky very well. You have wisely resisted any temptation to add contrast to the scene, which leaves a good texture to the sky and even the shadows in the foreground are well detailed. A very pleasing dramatic photo.

    A very pleasing composition from a low position, looking under the bridge, and a photo with lovely colours and light. I saw the Seine a few days ago and it did not look like this!

    Hello Peter.
    An excellent daily life scene from a remote region in the world. The men are nicely silhouetted against the bright light. We can't see their anger, but I suppose they were worried you would scare the fish away.

    Very good architectural shot, cropped effectively to panoramic proportions. The people in the shot give a great idea of the scale of the buildings. Good colour and strong sky.

    Hi Gyorgy.
    Very pleasing composition, with figures well placed in the frame, and a bold amount of sky. Your shot has a good sense of depth to it. Nice work, making the most of the couple and the church.

    Excellent portrait style photo, which captures this interesting fellow sharply and benefits from his looking up towards the camera. Well composed and cropped to eliminate all diversions. Good note.

    A very nicely angled view of the old, narrow street and its delightful trattoria. Nice subdued but warm light and tones, with suggestions of the Christmas season.

    And I believe it goes 'any morning, any evening, any day. Maybe he sun is shining, birds are winging...'
    Recognised the title words before I even took in the photo, Will. One of my favourite songs from one of my favourite albums ever. Was only giving it a multiple repeat play in my car a couple of weeks ago. I've memorised nearly every song over the last 40-something years.

    Anyway, on to the photo. Great well timed capture of the protruding human element set against the vertical pattern of the windows and shiny metallica. I particularly like the reflection.

    Keep on Truckin'

    Hello Jean.
    Lots of 'verticals' in this photo, and delightful colours on a sunny Spring day. Those sheds make a great background for the small boats. The scene has a delightful sense of peace and quiet about it.

    Hello Jorge.
    Congratulations on reaching this milestone on TE. I completely forgot about my 10 years last October!
    You've chosen an imposing scene to celebrate the occasion. A magnificent, well-preserved fortress shot from a great viewpoint against a lovely sky. Sharp, detailed, and with natural colour tones. Great note too.

    Hi Claude.
    A great b/w creation. The monochrome effect makes the strong contrast more even stark and seems to confuse the viewer about the time of day - we see the figures' very short shadows, yet there is a darkness here as well, as a large cloud moves over the dune, adding an element of strangeness. You did very well to compose - and probably crop? - this, and I like the stances of the nearest figures, and also the presence of the tiny pair in the top left corner. The gentle curve of the horizon is also appealing. My favourite photo today!
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Ali.
    I suppose I am not very well informed about your country, so I would not associate this scene with Iran. But if you live in the north of the country, it must be very cold in the winter. This is a beautiful shot, well exposed. I understand what you mean by the difficulty of automatic exposure when there is so much white in the scene. You captured the details in the trees and the house very well. An elegant and delicate composition.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    A very good early morning photo, very sharp and with beautiful colour tones. It's quite mysterious looking in this light, despite being just redcurrant bushes. Nice work with phone camera.

    An excellent sunset shot, better than most because of the composition and the warm but very subdued tones of colour. The two lines of boats make a good perspective effect. Very nicely done.

    Hello Kari.
    Maybe you didn't see any whales, but you got this very good photo. The washed-out colour and the very soft sunlight on the snow are very atmospheric in this almost minimalist shot. I think it conveys a strong sense of desolate wilderness and the sea looks very dark and inhospitable. Well done.
