    Hello Jean Claude - I'm not 100% sure about the framing here and would have liked to see the portrait closer to the RHS of the frame but that doesn't detract from the excellent very good light and the effect of the black backdrop. The face is starkly contrasted by the darkness and I like that a lot. The coloured shadow created by the specs is a super touch.

    Nice work!

    Warm regards

    Hello Betty,

    I almost broke into song, reading your notes.
    This is a beautifully composed shot, a painter's dream, as the horizontal layers filter back into the frame, culminating in that spectacular sky.
    The f/g branches help to create the deep sense of depth.
    There is noise in the shot but, for me, it adds to the mood.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Constantino,

    I am amazed by your notes!
    I perceived the old lady to be hanging onto the windowsill to steady herself on the steep hill!
    Not only does she not have to hang on, she is sprightly enough to paint the steep street!
    A delightful capture, very well composed and with fine textural details.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Asa,

    The monks have certainly done a very good job for the graveyard looks neat and well cared for.
    You have provided some excellent f/g details, nicely angled across the frame, whilst in the distance, the fašade of the catacombs looks very interesting.

    Did you venture into the catacombs?
    They must have great historical significance.

    My warm regards,

    Hola Angel,

    This reminds me so much of a photograph that I took in Bonn, where the road is accessed through the buildings. I wonder if it is a German characteristic!
    Whatever, it works very well, both as an access and as a photographic opportunity. The buildings are quite delightful with their half-timbered frames and interesting colours, whilst the clock tower dominates with its height and clear architectural details.
    I do like how the archway seems to offer just a little more information, after you have absorbed all the information in the f/g.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Maria,

    Although I have never been to Moscow, I recognised this building immediately, as I recently critiqued a shot of GUM posted by Jason. The same building but your shots have individual character.
    The fanned, glass roof is an immediate eye-catcher and perfectly matches the colourful umbrellas spread across the bridge. You have composed the shot nicely symmetrical, with details that are sharp and richly coloured.
    A fine shot for an indoor subject.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Swapan,

    It is interesting to see how these ghats have been built, to assist people to access the river. I like how you have angled them so well, to create a strong f/g triangle, also linking with the figures.
    The rows of boats are interesting in their own right, make good lead lines and help to generate a sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    What a beautiful spot and it certainly has similarities with the Italian version!
    I like how you have used the details of flowers and the architecturally beautiful building to edge the main lead line of the river. The reflections are an additional, very interesting aspect and create a final focus in terms of the 'eyes' bridge.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Claude,

    Who wouldn't smile seeing this charming shot!
    It reveals the natural curiosity and innocence of young people!
    You have composed the shot and framed the little boy with great skill, whilst the details of the ocean going vessel have great clarity.

    Bonjour Denis,

    This is a stunning photograph!
    You are nice and low, so that you can capture the surface of the sea and the reflections without interruption.
    The light and the clarity are excellent.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You must have been high up the mountain to be looking down on this scene!
    You have shown us the rugged textures of the rocky mountains, with their ridges and clefts, and contrasted them convincingly with the smooth caps of snow.
    What a beautiful day you had, the colours are superb, with lots of contrasts of light and shadow.

    Hello Denis - A fabulous alpine scene. The colours are so lovely with nothing to jar the harmonious blues and greens. The quiet colours of the FG flowers make a lovely detail and add a feeling of depth to the landscape.

    Bonsoir Christiane - You had far better weather when you were in Florence than we did, seem here the river and distinctive buildings that line the banks look terrific. The colours are rich and attractive and I love the rippled tones and reflections in the river. Never mind the simplicity of the shot... it's lovely.

    I do like this shot Jose. The small chapel looks delightful set against the sea and sky. Good light management allows us a peek inside where we can see the icons. Lovely and sharp and a shot that tells a story.

    Hello Abmdsudi - You are right in your questioning of this child's future and the future of any offspring he may have. The world gets smaller but the disparity between the rich and poor gets larger. Where will it end?

    I like your low vantage point as we look up across the river and the far bank to the child riding his buffalo. The shot is one that we may have seen many years ago (apart from the hat!). I tend to agree with Gert regarding the bright red bag. It tends to dominate the scene a little.

    Warm regards

    Hello Angshu - I loved the little village of Şirince especially at the day's end when all the tour buses had departed and one could wander around the peaceful place. This is a good shot with the green adding to the feel for the location. I see the St John the Baptist Church commanding the main FP, a lovely stone building which refers to the Greek influence. Fond memories for me.
