    Hello again Gert,

    I was, of course, directed to this picture from your most recent posting and it is remarkable that this image was taken just a few metres away from it, though presumably looking in the opposite direction.

    The architecture is delightful and I like the rough and worn walls on either side. Your composition is excellent, the lines in the cobblestones leading us nicely to the distant archway and, of course, the romantic couple lead us that way too as well as being perfectly placed in the frame and adding a welcome splash of colour.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Gert,

    Yes, I agree: this really is a lovely little street with a pleasant and relaxing ambience with people eating, walking and going quietly about their own business amidst lovely old architecture. A lovely air of unhurried contentment amongst these people too.

    A delightful photograph with lovely light and colours, a fine composition including interesting people - and excellent technical quality too.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Denis,
    The sun has lit the tower up in a beautiful golden hue. There is lovely detail in the FG beach and the reflection. The bridge and the lines of cloud complete this very well constructed image.
    Beautifully done.

    The lighthouse is a super blue hour subject. Lovely variety of blue shades and the red reflection connects the FG with the lighthouse.
    Excellent - TFS.

    Bonjour Denis,

    What a delightful picture of these young boys having fun fishing with their primitive equipment in this harbour! I wonder if they caught anything to take home for their mothers to cook for their dinners?

    A very pleasing and happy photograph which you have managed to capture very nicely in spite of the poor light. The colours are wonderful and I love the reflections of the boys on the water. Excellent technical quality too.

    Wonderful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Will,

    Wow! What a gorgeous photograph!

    Yes, this picture really is a stunner. You have, not without some considerable effort according to your note, achieved what must be the perfect viewpoint from which to appreciate the beauty of this little village as it nestles in a small clearing surrounded by trees in their rich autumn colours. The natural framing afforded by the foreground trees and branches is delightful, the light and colours lovely and your depth of field, sharpness and overall technical quality are exquisite.

    An interesting and informative note too.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ann,

    This must be one of your very best pictures from your Yellowstone trip three years ago - I wonder why you've been keeping it to yourself all this time?

    As with all great pictures, it is the superb quality of the light which helps make this so special and your very expert and very subtle processing work has, I feel, helped to enhance it very nicely. Did you add your "negative clarity" while working on the RAW file or was that done later in Photoshop? And, if the former, how did you manage to achieve the effect selectively?

    Anyway, your composition is both excellent and very pleasing, making use of the fence as a perfect "lead in" to the image, the light and colours are stunning and the details and sharpness are exquisite. And thank you also for an interesting note and an excellent workshop picture which reminds us of how you travelled in these challenging conditions!

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Will,
    The English countryside at its very best here. Your viewpoint shows how well the village is nestled below the hills. I am sure that the view is glorious all year but the autumn colours really are superb. Clever use of the trees to frame the view almost as if a curtain has been pulled back.
    A superb image.
    Kind Regards, Ann

    Hello Les,

    Don't you feel thrilled to have had your camera with you when you see a sight like this! It's like a scene from some Biblical epic! It's all the more significant that the church is on the hill top!
    A fine composition to obtain the maximum effect from this dramatic scene.

    Have a great Sunday,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Will,

    This is a very attractive, autumnal scene, where the roof tops blend beautifully with the colourful tree tops.
    The branches make an interesting, natural frame, in that we feel to be taking a surreptitious peep at the sleeping village.

    Have a lovely Sunday,

    It is difficult not to see this as a painting!
    The colourful houses, so well composed in a triangle, all set against the sky, which radiates colours that you wouldn't imagine!

    Hello Jean,

    This does look like two different photographs, yet they combine well to show the contrasts between the upper and lower regions of the valley. The low mist makes the perfect dividing line.
    If this was in the Lord of the Rings, it would be Upper and Lower Earth; I suppose the mist could be Middle Earth!
    It's a great photograph.

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    It is a perfect beach, sandy and unlittered, warm and uncluttered! The vastness adds to its charm.
    I like how the changes in colour demonstrate where the tide reaches and how the tree line carries us forward.
    Maybe, I would have cropped the sky a little for a better thirds composition and to create more of a panorama.

    Have a great Sunday,
    Bev :-)

    The wide angle has created a distortion which makes your photograph even more eye-catching!
    The light has given warmth to the stones of the building which have superb textural sharpness.
