    Hello Alexandre,

    I had no idea that geysers were so common in Chile!
    I like how you have framed all those figures against the steam! It looks like some religious ritual!
    I love your w/s, too!
    It is easier to see the actual geysers and revisits the impression that this is some alien planet rather than Earth!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Luis,

    Yes, it is easy to see the pollution but what attracts me more is the interesting changes of light. In the f/g we have a triangle of shadows where the tree emeges, just to anchor the f/g.
    The city appears to be in a strange, underwater environment, with the snow-sloped mountains emerging clearly in the b/g. It is a most interesting and engaging photograph.

    My warm regards,
    Bev ;-)

    Hello Rob,

    It's good to see you posting your holiday photographs.
    I'm afraid I don't do FB so haven't seen any of those shots.

    This is a very attractive and colourful reflection. It appeals to me as I am particularly fond of green!
    Have you ever done microscope slides of plants?
    This reminds me (from a long, long time ago) of plant cells.
    It's a great, sharp, abstract pattern.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Denis,

    This is a beautiful flower, with vibrant petals.
    Your use of shallow dof shows the flower to perfection against a useful bokeh.

    Hello Chris,

    It's Sod's Law that restaurants are closed when you most need them!
    We often find that when we are exploring, we seem to decide to eat just after we have passed any obliging eatery!

    The triangular flowerbed is an attractive, colourful introduction to the scene, consisting of very eclectic buildings, all sharply captured.
    Is that a stork's nest that we can see on the roof?
    It's something we never see in the U.K. but often witnessed in Belgium and the Algarve.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    I like how you have used the buildings to act as a natural border to the scene.
    It gives the impression that we are peeping through a narrow opening, almost like spies, but adds a thrill!!
    The tall masted yacht has been sharply captured and makes a fine focal point, with its Norwegian flag flapping proudly!

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour Christiane,

    What a great viewpoint you have chosen which captures excellent details of the buildings and also, creates an excellent linear perspective.
    The beautiful sky adds to the overall effect.
    There are lots of figures to animate and guide us inwards.

    Hello Piotr,

    This is not the sort of photograph that we normally see on TE.
    Did it occur to you that it was like something from a James Bond film?
    I'm curious about the tall white structure in the m/g but it does act as a guide into scene, leading to the attractively coloured water and then the arch of the bunker.
    Very mysterious!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    Sebbene sia stata effettuata una ricostruzione, questo ancora un antico castello testimoniato dalle pareti di pietra casuali.
    Hai raggiunto un ottimo equilibrio con il bene fiorito nella f / g e la figura, posta sotto l'arco, nel b / g. La scala agisce come un ottimo esempio!
    I colori sono belli in questa bella giornata di agosto.

    I miei calorosi saluti,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Malgo,

    This is a still from the lovely video that you showed me yesterday. I'm surprised that you haven't shared it with everyone for it really brought to life the prayer wheel, with the dancers contributing to the whole experience.
    Ha! Ha! this could be a great way to keep fit, though whether the prayers will be thought about ... !

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    What an interesting photograph!
    Your balcony leads us easily into the view far below!
    The green slopes give the impression that the buildings are partly hidden in a crater, like something from a James Bond movie!
    I'm not quite sure whether the mist is low cloud or smog but it rekindles memories in my mind of my childhood days, when I witnessed tall chimneys in Lancashire belching smoke out from the many mill chimneys. Now, they are all gone and the land is green and pleasant again!!

    This really is a well composed and very truthful shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    There were some horrific scenes from Belgrade when war raged in the 1990's but that mood is not reflected in your photograph! This is a calm and peaceful setting, emphasised by the barrel and the many flower displays, it is a lovely setting.
    Vibrancy is added by the the roof of umbrellas. What colour they give, no matter what the weather.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This is a most beautiful interior!
    It has that opulence that is characteristic of lovely palaces!
    I love the patterned marble floor and, above it, the wonderfully decorated gilt, arched ceiling. It is sumptuous.
    The open door, at the far end, is very useful as it helps to draw attention right through this huge corridor.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Stephen,

    This isn't quite as decoratively beautiful as the interior of The Alhambra but it certainly cheers up the plain, white wall!
    As far as graffiti goes, it is quite attractive, showing different artists and different styles.
    I particularly like the eagle's head.
    Your nicely angled shot has a strong f/g triangle and creates a very useful sense of depth.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)
