    Hello Jean,

    Yes, indeed, the larger version of your photograph does indeed let us see all the different layers of flaking paint - and rust - perfectly and in great detail. I wonder how old this wrought iron gate is and just how many coats of paint it has received during its hard life?

    A very well seen and taken photograph with lovely soft light, true colours and exceptional details and clarity.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Gert,

    This is a very fine trio of photographs, your main picture being a delightful one which we can contemplate very much in the way the lady herself is contemplating these paintings in the gallery, examining every detail of the fine composition, the lovely soft light and the natural colours. An image which really tells a story, very well seen and very well taken.

    Your other two images are ones clearly taken more "on the spur of the moment", brighter and more striking pictures, each very well executed and with good light, strong vibrant colours and more action.

    But all images are stunningly clear and sharp and together must be a fine memory of your time in Bratislava.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Each time I see or hear the word "tandem" I am reminded of my Latin teacher from more than 50 years ago telling us that the word was first used in the English language about 200 years ago as a rather whimsical or humorous use of the Latin word "tandem", meaning "at length". Is the same word used in Swedish?

    Hi Craig,

    Two beautiful images and an excellent note - what more could one ask for?

    Your main photograph looks as though it has been taken with a much longer lens than just 50mm focal length, but I guess exif data don't lie.

    Your workshop image is the more "traditional" of the two - I'm sure it was taken with your wide "city" lens - and is beautifully composed with a strong diagonal running through the line of buildings and it also has the distinct advantage of some beautifully sunny weather.

    But I do like your main picture - a wonderfully graphic image, very well seen and very well taken, the red/brown repeating triangles of rooflines standing out beautifully against a soft background but with a bright yellow triangle at bottom right attracting attention and also firmly anchoring the whole composition.

    Lovely light and colours and, as always, stunning details and sharpness.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Claude,

    Ha, ha, that should cool these spectators down a bit - but would this not make the road a bit hazardous for the cyclists coming along later? I suppose the water would have dried off by then. But I don't believe a very hot photographer with his precious camera gear would want to be cooled down this way!

    A superb candid shot, this time taken with a very long lens and well composed with the bright red truck dominating the frame and with good interaction between the people on the left and the young lady in the truck with her water gun.

    Good light, lovely vibrant colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

    Brilliant!

    Cheers,

    John.
