    Hi Bev.
    Meticulous well proportioned composition and a good exposure of the sky. I haven't been to Roscoff, but here it looks faintly like St-Malo, from this angle. Those rocks create a strong foreground feature in the bottom right corner. Your photo makes me think a return to Brittany is due very soon.

    Hello Silvio.
    A very good architectural shot, with lovely soft lighting and nice colour tones. I think you removed the lens distortion, which creates a pleasing view looking straight at the old church building. Nice work.

    Hello Piotr.
    Another excellent photo from your elevated position in the Tatra. Very good exposure, which is always difficult when there's a lot of snow in the composition. The two people on the chair lift make a good focal point. The scene has great depth.

    Hi Benny.
    An appealing shot, closely framed and with the registration plate the only thing hinting at what it is. I'd have guessed it to be a boat. I travelled around Thailand a lot many years ago, and remember that each bus had a little 'shrine' at the front beside the driver's seat. The driver would get on, kneel down before Buddha and say a prayer or something for all on board, then proceed to drive like a maniac through the jungles.

    Hello Leszek.
    A very good daily life photo, almost a group portrait really. These people look happy and healthy, and I wonder how much autonomy they have these days from the nation's central government. I found the information in the note very interesting..

    Hello May.
    A very effective photo which conveys a strong sense of the early hour and the atmosphere of the place and the environment. Like Gert, I was there forty years ago, in 1976. I have some old slide photos of the stupas, but I know they are not as good as this one.

    Hi Ludo.
    Simple but good. Even without the bicycle it would be very atmospheric and the pattern of trees would hold our interest.Y You framed it with the pink bike in a good position. Of course, we wonder where the bike's rider is. Nice work.

    Hello Denis.
    A lovely photo, showing your usual meticulous composition skills. Strong diagonals, and a delightful colour to fill the bottom right corner. The pattern of roof-tops is eye-catching too, and the distant hills create a pleasing sense of distance.

    Hello Ourania.
    A lovely photo taken from a very good vantage point. The framing effect and the pattern of bollards on the side of the road create a strong perspective. Here in Australia, we notice the spring coming a little earlier every year because of global warming.

    Hello Mariusz.
    A superb landscape photo in wonderful light. The slanting rays of the sun below a threatening sky always make for a great photo if you expose it well, which you have done here. Great vantage point to capture the scene and the reflection. Beautiful presentation and a good note.

    They must be very low clouds. An intriguing landscape, or is it a cloudscape. Anyway, it creates an interesting visual impression. Well done.

    Hi Lisa.
    Hope the heat's not getting to you, nor the BS which pours from the mouth of our esteemed PM.
    Anyway, chocolate and cheese seems almost certain, to my mind, to ruin both of these great pleasures of life. Is it the Irish answer to some of those American concoctions, which usually involve peanut butter, or the deep fried Mars Bar? I'm not going to comment on the superb sharpness, colour, composition and all that, because I don't think you really had all that in mind when you took this photo. Suffice to say, it shows very clearly what the thing is and does the Old Irish Creamery proud.

    Steve, you've been excelling yourself (yes, even yourself!) with photos from your trip; they just keep getting better and better. This one I really like, with the subtlety of its composition and wonderful soft tones and gradient in the sky. So atmospheric. Am hoping to see you soon, but may be difficult. Will message you.

    Hello Ryszard.
    A very good capture! The diagonal lines of colourful beach furniture seem to have enclosed the little boy. At first I thought he was the only living thing in the picture, but I finally noticed the couple at the top right - maybe they are his parents. Nicely done and well timed.

    Superbly timed and well executed with very fast shutter. You caught them in such a dynamic pose, all four feet off the ground, and a superbly rich blue behind them in the shape of that heavy door. Thanks for Utube link!

    Hi Piotr.
    A delightful shot! Even without the selfie-taker this would be a good one, so well exposed to preserve detail of the stones in the dark area. Great composition and crop, and a good bit of timing too. We don't need to see the man's face, and the result is a little humorous. Very well done to combine this very old church with the very modern motif of the selfie.

    Hi Vasilis.
    A lovely autumn shot, with a beautiful combination of colours. You found the perfect spot to compose the picture, using those trees to frame the little stone arch. It's a great view down the valley, and a well exposed sky. Very nice indeed.

    Hello Sven.
    A very lovely scene, which you have captured so well in the pale light of early winter. Splendid detail and sharpness in the larger version. I think you composed this very well, making good use of the bare tress to frame the tiny church.
