    Hello May,

    The baskets make a most attractive f/g feature and an effective guide line towards the threatening image of the volcano.
    In fact, there is a similarity of shape between the baskets and the volcano, as if they are mimicking each other!

    I like how the f/g is sharp and colourful, whilst the b/g colours are dulled by the mist; it really adds to the sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    Who would have believed that there was such a connection between Paris and Bruges! But, designers have to gain inspiration from other designers, then they adapt!

    This is a lovely building and its style stands out despite suffering a dull, rainy day! You have considered the composition carefully so that we can see the dimensions of length as well as width. I also like how you have created a strong f/g triangle from the cobbled street.
    For such a small city as Bruges, these buildings have been afforded a lot of space, essentila if they have a sense of grandeur.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Neyvan,
    What an impressive and vast landscape!
    A fantastic view from the snowy slope on which you were standing till the snowcapped peaks far away.
    And in between a huge rugged wilderness.
    So indeed, you can continue showing us such pictures.
    The view is very bright and I love the attractive composition and the sharpness of the picture.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Ourania,
    There are a few very dark clouds in the sky but it doesn't look like a threatening sky. The clouds are floating in a larger blue whole. A little rain shower will soon be followed by sunshine.
    I guess that above you a larger cloud was hanging, given the fact that the beach is completely in the shade.
    Pretty colours of the houses, the hill and the sky and they all are well reflected in the sea.
    Best regards, Paul

    Bonjour Serge,

    It looks as if you have been using the benefits of Colour Efex to great effect.
    I do like how how it has given a tobacco sky, with a ghostly moon appearing.

    The sailing ships make a splendid focal point and you have used the quayside as a useful guide towards them.
    There is a lovely sense of movement around the whole frame as we follow the guide from the quayside, right round to the liner, moored at the left.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gyorgy,

    Although the cyclist is actually crossing the frame, he does actually make a good link, via the converging lines of the buildings, and the cobbled street surface, with the second focal point, the tall church tower.
    The street furniture appears to be creating an unusual gateway between the two.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Les,
    You might assume that the roof would collapse first. But with this barn it remains the longest intact.
    Australian barns seem to have very odd tiles. It all seems lids.
    Nevertheless beautiful with their rusty colour.
    Best regards, Paul

    Salut Serge,
    Wow, ceux-ci sont en effet de magnifiques voiliers.
    Et encore un si grand nombre dans une rangée.
    Pas vu quand moi j'étais à Istanbul ... Mais cela était il y a plus de 30 ans.
    Vous avez pris cette photo d'une très grande hauteur. Votre bateau de croisière doit avoir été très grande et haute.
    Amicalement, Paul

    Ciao Silvio,
    mi piace l' antiquita', l' intimita' ed il carattere discretto di quest' angolo del villaggio. La tua composizione ci offre ottimi dettagli e prospettive attraenti. E' molto interessante come le tre porte chiuse esprimono dei caratteri diversi e fanno il nostro sguardo girare dall' una all' altra. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Hola Angel,
    an elegant composition that gives us a close view to a characteristic corner of the picturesque town. I like the balance of the architectural elements and the details, the way the forest and the water complement the composition and the daily life details, which remind us that some people call this place home. The colours are so attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    the light brings out the details, colours and brilliant atmosphere of the small port. A picturesque place with a lot of interesting information distributed neatly around the panoramic frame. I like very much the distribution of colours, too. Congratulations and thank you!

    I like this scene and find it very interesting for its ususual perspective, its great depth, iressistible golden tones and intriguing textures. I like the placement of the people in the foreground and the distant background, the area in between clear and glowing with warm light. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Jean,
    I like this composition of strong and meaningful diagonals, you placed and balanced them very well and they draw a suggestive view of the mountainous scenery. The colours and the textures that fill the spaces between the diagonals complete the description very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    both of your pictures are well composed and interesting, I like the context and the diagonal in the wider view and the main post is very interesting for the details and textures of the tower as well as the colourful flags flying all around it. I like how you brought out the colours against the cloudy sky. Congratulations and thank you!

    a remarkable capture, so sharp and with superb sense of depth, an interesting scene that fills the frame, fine natural textures and a palette that looks harmonious and contains amazing variations. The bird's head, eye and beak make a strong focal point. Congratulations and thank you!
