    Hello Claude,

    This is one of your street scenes that seems to go into a different genre!
    It is so wonderfully arty!
    The red brick wall is a very texturally, receptive canvas and makes the perfect b/g for the silhouetted figures.
    Figures in detail would, somehow, have been too much and detracted from the whole.

    Well seen and well photographed!

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    You have certainly captured the mood, here.
    The grey sky softens the mood from that which we normally feel with a bright blue sky.
    The camel is the focal image and the guide into the desert.
    He is appearing to welcome us into his home!

    Hello Paul,

    Any of your shots would have been worthy of posting but, given the choice, there is something so very special about this one.
    The three figures are perfectly positioned in the frame, the couple in the b/g, (unaware of the dilemma with the kite) add greater attention on the young girl and her concentration on the colourful kite.
    It's a charming shot and one that had to be snapped immediately!
    It is improbable that the exact situation will ever be repeated!

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Chris,

    It is a fine shot despite your protests about the weather!
    The rippling water still shows reflections, the red, grass-roofed shack is clear and sharp and your composition is very well-balanced.

    Have a great w/e,

    hello Swapan,

    This is such a famous place and yet does not appear too often on TE!
    What a beautiful building and very well composed in this fine setting; the reflection adds to its sense of regality.
    I cannot imagine so many people visiting each day! It is to the credit of the Sikhs that they provide a kitchen irrespective of person or class!

    Thank you for sharing this,

    Hola Angel,

    You have composed this very well, the lamppost anchoring the f/g, whilst the associated white buildings lead effectively towards the warm coloured houses and the misty topped mountain. the second access leads down to the beach. What contrasting areas!

    Have a good w/e,

    Ciao Caro Carlo,


    You have a good eye for patterns!
    These raised parasols and loungers make a superb colour co-ordinated pattern, made more eye-catching by your angled composition.

    Hello Murat,

    You have to be careful and respective when in another country and because of the recent problems, it is better to be safe than sorry!

    I just love how something so simple could be transformed into something so artistically creative! The concrete stand and horizontal lines, together with the diagonal bar, combine very well into this shape, almost like an emoji!

    Have a good w/e,

    Hello Craig,

    Another excellent b&w photograph of N.Y.
    The horizontals anchor the f/g, the bridge guides us inwards and the figure sets the mood. (I love how the bridge reflection appears like eyes peeping at you, the photographer!)
    The w/s creates a whole new mood rather than interfering with the seated man. In fact, you only really notice the cyclist. Each has its own mood. I prefer this one, too.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Dear John,

    You photographed this on a day that was perfect for reflections: a bright blue sky and a placid water surface. The results are wonderful, your captured reflections are sharp enough to be the actual features!
    As always, you have a great eye for composition, using the canal as a diagonal in the frame, the bridge following an opposing line, linking together the nearside and far-side of the canal.

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    Here you are, on your favourite theme, and what a fine example!
    You have cropped the feature perfectly to give a symmetrical composition, as well as capturing the different elements with striking sharpness and textural details.

    Hello Gert,

    What a momentous time that was, when the Berlin Wall came down!
    The only place to suffer was the Granada Studios, in Manchester, which has a bus journey, ending at 'Checkpoint Charlie', where stern East German guards came on board to intimidate passengers and demand to see passports!

    Thank you for so many images of this section of Berlin.
    I thought the entire wall had been removed as a symbol of complete unity!

    I cannot imagine how the artist was able to create this painting. It is immense! It is like a huge jigsaw but with an inner meaning!
    You have given us some excellent photographs to help us imagine this once divisive region of Berlin.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Lars,

    Thank you for your expansive notes which I found very useful. Those Romans got everywhere! I was surprised to learn that the tower belonged to a winehouse and not a church!
    It's a very fine composition with the bikes and street cafe creating immediate attention but, then, the lines of the buildings funnelling us inwards.
    You have revealed a very relaxed centre in a very conducive light.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    A fine photograph, showing one of the spectacles of Nature with excellent colours and dramatic appeal.
    The clouds look like a furnace, burning in the sky!
    It is a remarkable occurrence, perfectly composed in your photograph.

    Hello Ike,

    This is a wonderfully expansive view and I cannot believe how few people were about.
    It was heaving with visitors when we were there!
    I love how you have given such a clear view of the castle and still been able to give a sense of its height above the city.
    Its formidable, grim character has been perfectly captured.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Sergio,

    This is an excellent place for photography and though you didn't have the very best of weather, the grey sky has assisted in in creating a dour mood for this once magnificent building.
    You have controlled the light well to capture the details of the priory and I like how you have used the path for a sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    This is a cracker of a shot!
    The buildings, with their patterns of rectangles, make a superb b/g for the boat on the canal, especially with their shimmering reflections.
    My only suggestion for improvement would be to have the boat travelling into the scene rather than out of it.

    Have a great w/e,
