    Hello Denis
    a beautifully captivating view this with the autumnal tinges giving such a contrasting and yet colourful fg. Looks so unspoilt and as usual your execution is perfect.

    Hello Athanasios
    stunning autumnal shot this, I never think of Greece having anything but blues skies, seas and green vegetation, but this must be so wonderful to experience too.

    Looks amazing!

    Hello Luciano
    wonderful character study this. It does ask the viewer to try and guess what is going on. I think it was probably exactly what you say, he taking the picture and she noting the location. Embracing technology is a must do nowadays and I am sure he will have grasped it by the time he gets home. Lest hope so!

    Hello Lisa
    bet this place is popular on Twitter! (sorry couldn't resist it :-) What a wonderful idea for a piece of art, and all the more compelling to hear the birdsong without the birds being held captive. It is an inspiring piece of imagery and you have captured it beautifully, I do assume you were flat on yer back after a few more tinnies!

    everything of historical interest in Russia looks so well cared for and beautifully clean. No litter on the streets, unlike the UK now, where youngsters seem to just drop rubbish where they stand. This well looks amazing and so colourful too.

    Bonjour Denis,

    How lovely that this place is now undergoing restoration with rebuilding of the houses and replanting of crops and fruit trees to make it attractive for visitors to see how life was here in times past.

    You have captured this scene perfectly with your usual excellent details and sharpness and the bright red foreground leaves contrast well with the glorious blue of the sea and sky and draw attention to the old stonework of this decaying rustic buidling.

    Lovely light and colours, fine composition and excellent clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Philippe.

    Don't we just love to see the lovely colours that autumn brings. The reds and oranges add vibrancy to our shots.
    This is a lovely example where Nature has dressed the trees in their autumnal best! They are so attractive that they are looking at themselves in the water, like a pretty lady using a mirror!
    You have used the rule of thirds to give compositional accuracy, too.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Sasha,

    This is a delightful shot.
    The little girl, standing on tiptoe, and searching for parental approval makes the scene so beautiful and innocent.
    You have captured the shot with excellent clarity so that the details of the child and the textures of her surroundings are all perfectly accessible.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Bev,

    Well, this old bridge may be at least ten times my age but I can guarantee that it has borne the ravages of time far better than I have and appears in far better condition than I do!

    Isn't it wonderful to think just how many generations of people and animals might have crossed this bridge and just how important a feature it must once have been in aiding transportation around this village and its outlying areas?

    A very symapthetic and pleasing composition which shows so well the wear and tear on the crude and heavy paving slabs as well as the moss-covered parapets. Lovely soft light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity. Nice too to include the brightly clad gentleman on the left as he adds a nice splash of colour as well as giving a fine sense of scale - and also helping carry your tripod and camera gear!

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    Starting to hear voices after a few bottles of "pluge" is often a bad sign - were the voices trying to tell you to do something crazy? Hee, hee.

    But what you have written about and shown us is, to me at least, rather nice. Here in Britain, we see and hear far fewer birds in cities, towns and even the countryside than we used to several years ago and that is very sad. And how nice that someone has decided to try to emulate birdsong in this very built-up area, even if it is only electronically.

    Your picture shows and interesting scene, the various sizes and shapes of birdcages apparently strung up on wires between the tall buildings on either side of this street. A very well composed photograph with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. How are things? I hope you are well.

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    It is always difficult to find originality when we see so many wonderful shots. You just have to experience things through your own character, which you do.
    I cannot help but see this couple as if on stage! Look, the man is in a star's spotlight!
    It is a beautifully composed shot with fine details of the main characters, their location and the scenery beyond.

    Have a lovely day,

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    Your view of canal, with its smooth, reflective surface, its gentle colours and, of course, the gliding swans, creates a slow, tranquil mood, such a contrast with the hustle and bustle of modern life.
    There is a very natural movement down the canal to the spanning bridge and ultimately the lake, all creating a fine sense of perspective.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)
