    Ciao Silvio,
    Nice autumn shot. I like the fact that even the town elements are rusty as autumn colors are. Well seen.

    Hello Daniel,

    This is one of those shots that looks amazing even on the thumbnail!
    It is a strong composition which works beautifully, defining the orientation of lines and shapes in a most artistic and flowing way.

    Thank you for sharing this,

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    I am having to critique your photograph from the Beta site as, for some unknown reason, the main photograph will post on screen!
    It matters not that others may have posted this location, each photographer imposes his own style, and light, season, weather will all interact to make the shot original.
    The houses are colourful, with their own particular roof details. You have been able to detail the wall patterns, too, which are very interesting. I wonder how they were done!
    The steps make a very effective lead, giving contrasts of shadow and sunlight.
    I do find it sad that in such a beautiful place, someone has daubed graffiti on the walls!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Christiane,

    I have never seen a wall that created such a 'moving' impact, before. It competes with the natural corridor, drawing attention into its supposed opening, before realisation occurs and attention reverts to the converging lines of the corridor and its ultimate opening.
    A very well composed shot showing great light control.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Luciano,

    Your photograph of Mahon with, its colourful residences and regular, cuboid shapes, reminds me very much of a toy-town. Only the church deviates from the plan with its cylindrical tower and arch shaped windows.
    You have captured the details most succinctly, with colours that are bright and cheerful. You have good lead lines and the inclusion of figures which are most important in determining scale.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Claude,

    What I like about this shot, besides the simplicity of the machine against the blue b/g, is the range of expressions that you have captured. Some appear to be thrilled, others quite terrified! I would be in the latter group! For me, this would cross the boundaries of fun, into the realm of terror!
    It is amazingly sharp for such a fast moving shot!

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonsoir, Serge,

    These instruments could very easily be in an agricultural museum for it would seem that they are no longer useful. However, they do make an interesting shot for you. The textures and the shapes are well captured details and I do like how you have composed the implement on a diagonal line.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Matthew,

    This is a most interesting tower, with its dual staircases and decorative holes. You have included some excellent details, whilst the inclusion of people adds human interest and scale.
    Although the f/g lamp is an interesting feature and links nicely with the staircase lamps, it might have been better to place it slightly further to the right, so that it was sitting on the thirds line and was less of an obstruction to the view of the tower.
    I hope that makes sense to you.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Jean Jacques,

    An interesting note about these half timbered houses which, of course, are also common in older towns and cities in Britain.

    And how nice to see a glimpse of this old building with an old style "triple" lamppost with its traditional gas lamps (even although the gas fittings appear to have been removed). Though we do see a similar single lamp (with electric bulb) attached to the building at bottom right.

    A very striking and pleasing composition which shows off the house and the lamppost to good effect. Lovely light and colours, fine depth of field and sharpness and perfect exposure.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Bev,

    I'm not quite sure about the similarity to a "dalek" but you have certainly found the perfect viewpoint to produce a beautifully geometric and graphic composition which is very striking indeed.

    A very well seen and taken photograph with lovely light, strong lines and curves, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

    Who needs to go all the way to Barcelona if, like you, we keep our eyes open?

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    The angled shafts of sunlight and the way they cast their rays and form shadows in this shot is enchanting Piotr. The textures on the cobbles and dainty back-lit leaves are finely captured elements in this enticing autumn scene.

    Excellent exploitation of the light.
