    Hi Ray,

    I must say that I find this ones less impressive than your three posts before it, but I wanted to be the first critiquing it.

    While less impressive, that is because the view is "just awesome" instead of "wow, awesome!!!", as it is still a wonderful photo and good presentation of the place. The play of sunlight, smooth shadows, green and ocre on the sweeping mountains of the background and the mix of sunlight and shadow all over with the heavily cloudy sky renders a nice atmosphere.

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Rosemary,

    Apparently just a simple snapshot, it is actually an interesting photo, because of the display of daily life and the visual impact of the lady and the combination of her stripped clothes with the houses behind.

    Both crops are good, IMO, and each one of it have their own charm, but I prefer the WS.

    TFS, regards, José.

    Bonjour Magaly,

    Un ciel éttonant et très photogénique. Tu as fait une belle compo avec lui, surtout avec la nouage en diagonale. Le paysage est belle aussi.

    Hello Jan,

    Welcome to Trekearth.

    The POV (point of view) is really great, giving the image much punchy, an effect that is enhanced by the rhythm of all those geometric shapes and the red of the staircase. You start your gallery with a great photo indeed.

    TFS (thanks for sharing), regards, José.

    Hi Burak,

    I am very fond of this kind of POV, even when there is enough space so they don't need to be so "angled". I like the accomplished framing and the sharpness.

    Hello Dimitris,

    It is a wonderful late blue hour view, with amazing colours and sharpness and with a good centred POV, that takes profit from the reflections. Very well done!

    Hello Ourania,

    Curious compo, that plays with the darkness, sunlight and vivid colours in an abstract mood. The fact that the reflection doesn't show what we see above it is also interesting. Well seen and captured!

    Hello Dale,

    It's a funny coicidence that some hours ago I wrote about a post of this bridge (or another one close to it and almost identical). The POV is fabulous and the warm light also, making it very attractive and a great presentation of the engineering work.

    I understand why you have several posts of this bridge, it is a very photogenic construction and all the photos are great. However, I think that this one has the better light and colours.

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Boa,

    A good title for this image of the lonely "sheepboy" in front of a great expanse of steppe and arid hills that mix with the clouds in the distance. The DOF and compo are flawless, it's a really great image.

    Hello Bev,

    The compo is very accomplished; while I have tend to use "wide and open" POV's most of the times, I admire much these "tight" framings when they are well done. Anyway, there is plenty to see here. The fact that most of the image has little colour makes stand out the red on the foreground and the blue boat. The reflections are also precious. I like it very much.

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello May,

    You have done a very interesting compo with those goats seen from behind. The gradation of tones of the long hairs also contribute to make it an unexpectadly attractive photo. Well seen and captured!

    Hello Leslie,

    The POV (very well chosen), that dramatic sky and the HDR look combine well with the epic style of the statue and produce a dramatic mood that is nicely broken by the relaxed pose of those guys below. It's a powerful image, well done!

    Hello Dorian,

    Amazing image of an amazing and original building. I like the "graphic dialogue" between the building and the road, with the traces of light enhancing the great sense of depth and the cloudy sky enhancing a dramatic mood. The POV is superb and the BW seems very appropriate.

    TFS, regards, José.

    Olá Jorge,

    O POV é simples e aparentemente casual, mas afinal a compo cuidada é uma das coisas que mais atrai nesta apresentação curiosa da árvore sem folhas coberta de ninhos. Gosto muito!

    Hola ,

    Te felicito por tu jubilación y comprendo tu alegría ante la perspectiva de tener mucho tiempo para la familia, por ejemplo, para hacer como lo que se ve en la foto. A primera vista puede parecer una simples toma casual, pero en realidad es una representación muy lograda del ambiente de esos paseos en familia com abuelos, padres e niños pequeños. La compo bien echa también contribuyen para hacerla atractiva y que ilustra bien lo que escribes en la nota.

    TFS, saludos, José.

    Hola Angel,

    Aunque me gusta mucho fotografiar arquitectura, muchas veces lo encuentro mucho frustrante, por que es casi imposible de presentar una fachada completa de una manera tan buena como tu lo hiciste aqui. El POV es perfecto y el encuadramiento es exacto al milímetro. También me gusta la presencia de las personas, que dan un toque humano sin interferir en la compo.

    TFS, saludos, José.

    Bonsoir ,

    Un endroit très beau, mais qui je soupçonne qui n'offre pas beaucoup de POV évidemment bonnes et alors if faut beaucoup d'inspiration et "bon œil" pour obtenir photos achevées comme cette ci. On a une agréable senaation de tranquillité quand on la regard.

    Bonsoir Gifi,

    Une photo étonnante, par ses couleurs si saturés et le graphisme de l'architecture. Et aussi par la qualité technique, car j'imagine qu'il y ici un travail de gestion de lumière très achevé. Bravo!
