    Hello Pierre,

    Your long exposure has really paid dividends as it has used all the available light to give us this wonderful orange sky, with lovely lake reflections! The features of hills and trees make interesting silhouettes against the brightness of the sky.
    I like the off-centre composition.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello,
    Quite charming atmosphere around the temple. I like the sunlight and the blurry sky (hope it's not from the pollution like that). Well taken scene.

    Bonjour Serge,

    You have really captured the magnificence of the building which is adorned with many elegant towers and tall windows: a stunning building!
    According to the Internet, it was built on a Roman site!
    Your inclusion of the gardens, make a lovely introduction and gives bright colours to otherwise more staid examples.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    You are right, Alexandre, this lady was too good to miss, as a subject for photography. She was quite unaware of your presence and so makes a great subject.
    She is nicely positioned in the frame, her eyes well placed on the thirds line.
    Her clothes, from the top of her head, to her croc shoes are a mass of colours, indicative of her personality!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Denis,

    This is quite a minimalistic shot but it has great strength in its simplicity! The red boat is perfectly positioned in the frame and, from its orientation, leads quite naturally to the other moored boats. The boats cover two opposing diagonals. Well seen.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Mariusz,

    It's interesting to learn that money is being spent in the N.E. Most times, we are learning about the destruction of some interesting place or business closing down.

    I had to smile, when I saw this, for the shadow of the photographer is usually on screen when the sun is low and behind. Here, we see the shadow of tree! You weren't in disguise, were you?

    Still, it's a fine shot. I like how you have used the cascading display of flowers to anchor the f/g, whilst the shadow makes a natural link to the town hall and the church. These buildings are a reflection of the once affluent days as they are fine constructions, using quality materials.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    I can certainly see Bugs Bunny, with his carrot, though his ears have been clipped! The whole bus does look very complete, almost as if one person has taken on the responsibility of turning it into a work of art!
    Thank you for showing us two aspects of the bus. It helps us to get an impression of the whole.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    What a great way to project a message, both to the exponents and to the observers. It is colourfully attractive and in a great setting.
    Your photograph captures the details sharply and accentuates the colourful boat against the surrounding blues.
    I like how the bird acts as a link.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    Thanks again for the smaller w/s image. It does mean I can view it on Beta!

    Love this!
    The distortions are just so effective, giving the whole shot a sense of modern art!
    It is difficult to recognise this as a similar place to that shown by Lars, though following your info, I can see City Hall.
    I think the photographer might have been trying to confuse us by advertising Chicago!
    I love the pp work, identifying the owner!

    Have a great day,

    Hello Lars,

    This is such an iconic shot!
    I remember the excitement I felt as I stood on this spot and took a very similar shot, though you may have had a clearer day. We had a heat haze!
    Your exposure is very good, giving sharp images in the f/g and creating an excellent sense of depth by the gradual blurring.
    Even the clouds are helping your separation line!

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ryszard,

    Certainly not an easy photograph but one which works to perfection!
    The composition is exact and draws attention from the darkness into the appealing curves of light!
    Very dramatic!

    Hello Danos,

    I wonder if the ancient Greeks would have thought that this lovely, stone amphitheatre would have been in use more than 2,000 years later!
    What a wonderful setting and what a wonderful photograph to celebrate your 900th photograph! Congratulations!
    Your selected viewpoint allows us to share the same experience as those present!
    And we can appreciate the antiquity of the setting.
    I would imagine that the sound was glorious from the arrangement of the theatre.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Stephen,

    I recognised this immediately as I took a similar shot.
    (It shows the popularity of Strasbourg, when in 3 years, my photograph is now on page 11 for this city!)

    It's a stunning doorway and deserves all the attention that it receives.
    The decoration is quite amazing! Can you imagine the planning for this!
    I think you made a good decision to chose a symmetrical composition which accentuates its style.
    Your photograph is well exposed with fine colours.
    The single figure adds the human touch and gives a good appreciation of scale.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Daniel,

    A delightful composition, where the three sections are quite clear but appreciated as a whole.
    I really like how you have contrasted the f/g of rustic fence and gravelled path, with the typical, attractive Tuscan scenery.

    My warm regards,

    A great linear shot, where we have a continuation of excited and determined faces to peruse and enjoy!
    Good dof.

    Nice capture of this small church. It looks like there's in Tuscany because of the surrounding cypresses. Great catch!
