    Ciao Carlo,non sono un fan del bianco e nero e non vedo nemmeno condizionatori e gru,fortunatamente in alto ci sono quelle bande che dovrebbero essere rosse e bianche tipo "polizia,non oltrepassare" che danno quel tocco di modernita' a questi ruderi...ehehe...foto spettacolare,il taglio è un gioiello!!

    Hello Jean,

    Yes, it is amazing to think how these settlements were built here on what must have been pretty small and precarious bits of land at the foot of such enormous cliffs. Then, I suppose, the only way to expand was by building farther and farther up the cliff face!

    You have composed this picture perfectly from what I presume is a little harbour: everything in the image is very pleasingly placed, even right down to the tall lamppost at far right which draws our attention and then leads the eye off into the far distance, past the point of land to the far mountain shrouded in mist and cloud while the jetty on the left similarly draws us to the lovely ochre buildings at the water's edge.

    Lovely soft light, fine colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    You have written a fascinating note about these "prickly pears" but the fruit from these are not the same as normal "figs", are they? I cannot imagine that many people would want to eat these.

    But your photograph is delightful, this stair adorned with a whole row of pots containing these cacti leading us ever upwards to the bright yellow building with its welcoming doorway.

    The light here is glorious, bringing out all the colours of the yellow building and the rich reds of the terracotta pots and the old red brickwork. And I love the play of light and shade on the wall on the right.

    Lovely light and colours, perfect composition and exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi dear Malgo,

    A fascinating note and two lovely photographs which are of amazingly good quality considering that this wasn't your "good" camera and also that you were shooting through the window of the aeroplane.

    But, Gosh, it is flat! And that very low cloud is quite remarkable, as well as pretty.

    Yes, two lovely photographs, both with excellent details and clarity, but I think I prefer your workshop photograph as the colours in it just appear a bit more true to life - though maybe with the low sun on your approach, the colours really were as rich as this.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ourania,

    Of course we call this game "Noughts and Crosses" but it certainly seems to be concentrating the minds of these young dancers while the others are off having their official photographs taken. But I'll bet that the official photographs don't have quite the spontaneity or charm of this one!

    You have caught this moment perfectly in a very fine photograph, full of life and, on account of the lovely soft light, glorious rich colours too. And, as always, exquisite details and clarity.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ike,
    Beautiful blue composition with all the zigzag masts. The yellow reflection in the right corner is an attractive detail in the all blue composition.
    Good choice to concentrate on the reflection

    Hello Lars,

    A fascinating note and a delightful photograph to accompany it!

    I remember that there was quite a vogue a while ago for presenting photographs of reflections "flipped" or rotated through 180° and Gert's brother, Gunnar, showed us quite a few of his two or three years ago.

    The colours here are wonderfully rich and vibrant and the soft ripples on the water have given the image a wonderfully "Impressionist" look. Beautiful soft light, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness throughout.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Krzysztof,

    You choose a classic angle but the most beautiful.
    We get a lovely sight on the entrance and the house in background.
    Composition and presentation are pleasant to look at.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Hello Rob,

    You have written a fascinating and informative note about van Dyck, Rubens and their work and shown us a beautiful photograph.

    As Gert so correctly says, this young lady's painting appears to be of remarkably high quality, the colours, forms and contrasts so perfectly matching those of the original on the wall on the right.

    I love how you have obviously used quite a wide aperture to show the young artist and her work clearly and sharply against a nicely out of focus background. Lovely soft light, fine natural colours, perfect composition and exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,
    Yes, you do have guys who tried to buy their own laws and the succeed sometimes with that.
    But this beautiful reflection he could take away from you. I suppose this is also a sneaky way to place a picture with the other TE-members on it. Right you are.

    I don't like this exaggerate cars, but of course you deserve 10 points, but I can give you only 2 on TE. Sorry for the inconvenience

    Hello Neyvan,

    Gert (holmertz) showed us a photograph of summer weather in Stockholm just a day or two ago but this is a fabulous photograph taken on a warm evening with the sun low down in the sky.

    The warmth of the sunlight is remarkable, making this photograph look almost like a painting of one of the Old Masters, with people sitting relaxing while their faces are illuminated by the warm sun.

    A very fine composition with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
