    Hello Ryszard,
    Fantastic trees on neat straight lines, but also a quite lovely carpet of mainly green and yellow tones on the ground. Another photo with superb colours.

    Hello Noel,
    A fine composition from a good angle and with superb colours. The flowers gave you a great foreground and the ruins are very nicely laid out. Especially the tall steeple is still magnificent and must have been an impressive building long ago. I also like the inclusion of the narrow curving road to the left.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,

    Golly gosh, how did I manage to miss this one?

    This is spectacular view and I think I've been to this place too - not a long walk at all from Keswick. And, funnily enough, the first thing I think here is that you have captured a far better view than either of those photographers way out at the end of the jetty will ever hope to achieve - after all, you have them and the jetty to provide a wonderfully interesting and colourful foreground and they're going to have, well, nothing in the way of foreground interest!

    Still, let's not bother about their plight: as I say, they provide a wonderful foreground and they also very nicely balance the snow capped hills on the right, so adding to a fine composition. The reflections in the water are beautiful, the light lovely and soft, your colours true yet vibrant, and the details and sharpness exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Carlo,
    A lovely tower and a very original one with trees growing on the roof. The tree growing to the right, behind the nearest building, makes a fine parallel to the tower. The colours and light are splendid and there are very fine contrasts of light and shady parts.
    Kind regards,

    A simple but elegant composition with superb contrasts of blue and yellowish white. There are also fine contrasts of sunny and shady areas and the texture of the plastered walls is very well captured.

    Hello Ourania,

    A fascinating note - you obviously made a little friend here with this cute dog!

    What a beautiful view of this little bay with the town spread out before us, all brightly lit in the sunshine while the darker castle sits atop the hill on the left. Lovely soft waves hitting the shoreline - and your little friend perfectly placed in the frame.

    Lovely light and colours, a fine composition and excellent details and sharpness.

    Lovely!

    kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Craig,

    How wonderful that you had advice from Angshu before your India trip so that you could find some of the most photogenic areas to visit! And you've certainly found a very photogenic place here and a very photogenic lady to grace it.

    Yellow and blue, being complementary colours, really do work so very well together and this is no exception. The blue flaking paintwork and the crumbling masonry make a perfect backdrop for this contented elderly lady as she sits peacefully watching you and wearing the most magnificent bright yellow clothing.

    A lovely capture with fine soft light and wonderfully rich and vibrant colours, perfect composition and exposure and, as always, stunning details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Malgo,

    I love your note! How interesting that you had to take your own tea bags to India - but I couldn't drink tea made with milk and no water either. Nor do I take sugar in my tea.

    Yes, I know "carry coals to Newcastle" and "sell ice to Eskimos" and there's also "sell sand to the Arabs" - but Gert has also told you that one.

    Funnily enough, I once worked with a junior colleague who had come from Assam. And he had never tasted true Assam tea until he came to Britain - apparently all the good stuff gets exported and he had never tasted it at home.

    Anyway, I shall never tire of seeing your pictures from India - or from anywhere, actually! These old crumbling and dilapidated buildings might not look all that attractive but they certainly provide a wonderful background for "showing off" the local people in their brightly coloured traditional dresses.

    A beautifully composed photograph with lovely soft light and fine vibrant colours, very well seen and taken with excellent details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I've just looked at this picture again more closely - and I see that the lady's sack on the left says "Garden Fresh Assam Tea"!!!

    A nice gesture to the grand-anniversary, Chris. Very well known in Israel, as a Jewish-Brigade riding mules, was sent to Gallipoli to assist the fightings.
    Picture show a steep clif along the beach which I remember reading about how difficult was to climb during the battle.
    Contrats of blue sea, and the men-made supporting wall is most prominent on sight.
    Enjoy your weekend,

    Bonjour Juliette,

    As soon as I saw this picture, I just had to do some research - and now I see that "La Goulue" was a dancer! I found this and, of course, she was known as the "Queen of Montmartre".

    What a wonderfully colourful shop front - that must be an interesting shop to browse around in. And you have captured this colourful scene perfectly in an image with lots of things to look at and examine in detail, all taken with fine composition, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

    Thank you for letting me understand about "La Goulue"!

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,

    Wow! Now that looks like a really threatening sky! I hope you had your brollies with you that day.

    Despite the difficult lighting conditions, you have managed this photograph remarkably well and produced a very nicely composed image with lovely light and colours and superb details in the form and textures of the ancient stonework of this castle. Superb details and sharpness too.

    And, as always, an interesting note.

    Excellent!
