    Hello dear Malgo,

    Two versions of a lovely photograph - one in colour and one in monochrome sepia - and both showing what I tend to imagine when I think of the "Steppes of Central Asia". I often wonder if Alexander Borodin actually came here or if, as a part-time composer, he was more likely to have spent most of his time on his research into aldehydes rather than travelling?

    Yes, I do see that distant range of snow capped mountains and they make a perfect backdrop to the flat plains which are made more interesting by the inclusion of the old Muslim cemetery in the foreground.

    Excellent!

    Kindest Regards,

    John.

    Hello dear Mesut,

    Doorways make a fascinating subject for photographers and this is an excellent example. The old wooden door stands out beautifully with its flaking paintwork, surrounded by the heavy and massive whitewashed surround while the greenery with its little red flowers at its base add pleasingly to the otherwise simple colour palette.

    A fine bold composition with lovely soft light and fine colours.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello dear Mesut,

    This is indeed a huge doorway as so well shown by the presence of the lady above it. The archway and the worn wooden doors look ancient though the inscription above it dates from only 1953 - well within our lifetimes!

    Your photograph is very well presented with lovely light and natural colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness. But I'm wondering what caused the quite marked wear in the stonework on the left side?

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,
    Welcome back. It's nice to hear you had a good time on Ibiza. I think many of these very popular Mediterranean islands are actually much better than their reputation, at least if you can avoid the areas filled with young tourists busy with drinking and stripping contests.
    This is a very nice photo with an appealing simplicity. The white wall and the blue sky are nicely separated by a slight diagonal. The elegant lamppost and its shadow are well placed and the shadow of an unseen palm adds a glimpse of nature.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    Do they really have fun or do they mainly want to expose their muscles and flat bellies to people passing by? ;-)
    I suppose these well trained bodies represent some kind of architecture, but very different from that of Manhattan or Rotterdam. It's an amusing and original photo where I especially appreciate the steep hills in the background. You cropped the photo nicely to keep the sky out.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    Judging from your description this town should attract crowds of tourists, so the only way to get photos with any sense of authenticity would be to rise early. You captured a wonderful, quiet atmosphere before the tourists had even finished their breakfasts, and the low rays of the rising sun are beautifully reflected in the well polished cobbled stones. The contrast of early light and lingering darkness contributes to the good atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    A lovely capture of these bright meadow flowers, the red poppies dominating the foreground, the bright yellow colza behind and all amidst a sea of little white flowers. A wonderfully bright and cheerful image which lifts my spirits!

    Beautiful!

    Hello Kari,
    This is only the 48th photo on TE from St Kitts & Nevis, so we don't see these views very often. I guess this could have been Greece or Fiji or just about anywhere with lots of water and islands, but it's an attractive photo anyway with bright colours and a fine light.

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    What a remarkable piece of modern architecture! And it must be even more remarkable to see it amidst so many ancient remains in Syracuse.

    You have taken this photograph from the perfect viewpoint as the sunlight hits it obliquely, showing the tall "ribs" of the structure very well. A fine symmetrical composition with lovely light, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

    An interesting note too.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Malgo,
    This looks like a photo your grandma could have taken on her expedition to Central Asia in 1916. You really made this look very old. These tombs are very picturesque and look similar to many I have seen in Turkey and Algeria, among other places. The conversion to sepia was a smart idea.
    Kind regards,

    Hello György,
    I admit to being a conventional person with a common taste for beautiful skies with a reduced noise. This photo is really quite spectacular in a discreet way. The clouds are strangely shaped as a circle around the sun and you have captured (manipulated?) the rays across the field very nicely. It's a beautiful photo surely deserving more attention.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Luciano,
    Even though I can't see the fresco paintings clearly their mild pastel colours contribute well to the quiet and pleasant atmosphere. I like the pillars on the other side and of course the view of the two elderly monks walking slowly down the corridor. It's a nice composition with a fine mild light and pleasant colours.

    Hello Christiane,
    It's a well known view but the image is very original. The footballs buried in the green grass make the photo quite original and nicely colourful. It's a kind of artistic installation in a place I hadn't expected to find it. The photo is crystal clear and the colours are very nicely saturated.

    It's a remarkable church in a style I probably haven't seen anywhere else. You captured it perfectly from a good angle and with superb light and colours.
