    Hello Gert,

    Again you have given us a fascinating and informative note. I did believe that the red dot at the hairline told us that the lady was married but I was not aware that the red mark worn lower down had a different significance - in fact, I'm not sure if I've ever been aware of seeing two separate red marks on Indian ladies' foreheads.

    This particular lady might not have been particularly impressed by the photographer but the photographer has done a good job in capturing her quite striking pose in her colourful garments and her bright red painted nails in front of her innocent looking, though probably dreadfully fiery, chillies. And does this lady not have incredibly long fingers and toes?

    A striking shot, perfectly taken against a nicely out of focus background but where we can still make out details of the extensive vegetable market.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Chris,

    A beautiful shot. I love how you incorporated the natural elements of the tree branches into a really good composition. It frame the mosuqe nicely and provides depth to the image. Love the tiem of day with warm light and soft pastel sky.

    Hi M,

    A very different type of image from you. Not the typical landscape. Good to show something different here and there. I love the various blue and white. The curves and shape make it very interesting with an abstract quality yet we can still feel the it with the depth and perspective. as it lead up to the top like an opening of the bottle. I think this can look really good in the B&W also.

    Hello Ike,

    A very nice shot of the castle perched high up on the hill. I can imagine the view from up there. Lovely blue sky and green trees all around the hill. Like a fairly tale setting. Good quality image with rich colors and good light.

    Bonjour Ghislaine,

    Beautiful image with a splash of various colors, like a giant carpet covering the field. I love the different bands of color and layers like a beautiful design fabric.

    Hello Babara,

    Lovely image of the flowers, Not too many blue color flower. Love the lively color, full of live and spring atmosphere. I can imagine a while field of it. But it is nice to see a close up detail of these two stems. The soft background really brings out the sharpness and gives it a 3D quality.

    Hi Harriet,

    A lovely shot of the beautiful nature. I can see a bid of redding brown on the pool to know that it is muddy. The light is good, with beautiful and natural colors. I love hte little slides with bright red color. it adds that warm color. It makes me think of lady's high heel shoe :)

    Lovely refleciton.

    hi ann,
    the simplicity of this picture is wonderful and very striking. the beautiful colour tones are superb; i especially like the painterly quality in the sky with the wispy clouds spread across the scene as though from a paint brush. the silhouetted landscape is also excellent and helps secure the other elements of the picture.

    Hi Brenda,
    it is allways nice to read such stories when old historical buildings are restored, instead of being replaced of a modern concrete/glass office building. Nice picture taken during a lovely part of the year. The tree branches gives a good depth, tfs!

    hi romano,
    the colours immediately stand out in this picture, especially the deep blue tones. it appears like a huge block of colour in contrast to the large grey blocks of concrete making up the building. the red brick building in the corner adds an extra element to this lovely image.
