    Hello Olivier

    I think I really need to go to Iceland! This is a stunning location, and you've done it full justice with your photograph. I like the fact that you've decided to include the 4WD. Great cloud effects too.

    Hello Ann

    This is a good strong composition, largely as a result of your filling the frame so effectively with your subject. His grin seems to suggest he's aware of your presence! I'm prepared to bet that no medieval pikeman would have had a helmet this shiny! Spit and polish. No: I can't see your reflection either.

    Hello Serge

    Very strong viewpoint looking up at the weatherboarded building. I like the strips of strong colour: blue sky, dark trees, purple flowers, green meadow in the foreground. And in case it gets too predictable, there's the white house agreeably breaking up the lines. Lovely composition.

    Hello Denis

    Great shot, with a hint of the comedic in the cow's lugubrious expression! Lovely clear colours, spectacular scenery and of course pin-sharp from back to front (a trifle surprising for an f/5.0 aperture!)

    Hello Brian

    Excellent architectural detail, beautifully realised in your trademark strong primaries. I like the contrast between colours from the opposite sides of the colour wheel: OK, the architect/designer chose them, but you still had to see them, realise their potential, and frame them is such a tight manner. Good work!

    Hello Gert

    Good old, warm Kodachrome! I for one am very pleased you're delving into your archives, or jumping into your time machine as you say. This is an excellent street shot, and all the more interesting for its age. One wonders what the place must look like now... Thanks for sharing these old documentary images.

    Hello Neyvan

    Wild beauty! I'm not sure where your turquoise skies come from, unless the high altitude creates a thinner atmosphere, maybe. But the overall effect is great: I particularly like the cloud shadow over the foreground which offers a contrast to the sunlit mountains beyond. Pin sharp, of course!

    Hello Agnes

    A beautiful spot, very well photographed. I was sailing in a friend's yacht around here a couple of months ago, and your shot brings back some happy memories. I might suggest another 1/2 stop less exposure (I know you can't go back and take the shot again, but in P'shop, it's possible in "Levels", to drag the gamma (middle) slider to the right a little effectively to lower the overall look of the exposure.) But this is excellent as is!

    Regards

    Hello John

    I remember it well! And the photo I sent of you bending low to poke your lens through the safety gates must have been taken just as you took this! I like the inclusion of the hard-hatted workers, as they add some story to the architecture - as does your note!

    Hello Ryszard

    This is a beautiful and serene seascape, with muted tones and calm atmosphere. But you've also managed to include the two anglers in their tiny boat, which adds another element to the composition. The seagull is an additional bonus! Good work!

    Hello Claude

    This is a very astute piece of compositional nouse. In particular the dramatic diagonal, which splits the frame in two, and pushes the subject into the bottom left part. The rest is water: negative space on both counts.

    Lovely repeated patterns and the sense of depth from the steep perspective. I wonder if a figure in the shot would add an element of life, and how long you'd have had to wait until someone came along...

    This is such a charming portrait! She obviously knew you were taking her photograph, and didn't seem to mind at all. Did you ask permission? And I wonder if you also sent her a copy of the image; I'm sure she'd be proud of it.

    A lovely portrait, full of warmth and concentration, almost as if she's trying to sell her bananas by the intensity of her gaze. I like your workshops too: in fact the one of the iced water seller is probably worth a posting in its own right.

    Hello Ourania

    This appears to be about 1/2 a stop under-exposed, which I like a lot, as it has subdued the highlights and emphasized that gorgeous cloudscape. A very atmospheric shot, echoed appropriately by your choice of title.
