    Hello Fredrik

    A seriously fine image. As ever, it's the light that makes it; the aerial perspective is stunning. Beautiful.

    Hello Saša

    Despite the flat, dull light, you've managed to create a beguiling image. As I said in my note to my own previous posting, a cloudy sky can often be more interesting than a pretty blue one: this proves it. The ducks are a welcome and necessary highlight, while the village in the background looks interesting and the punt in the foreground gives us good foreground interest.

    Regards

    Hello Brian

    "Little boxes" they are, but that's where resemblances to Malvina Reynolds '60s song of the same name end! These houses are delightful, in a quinessentially Greek way. If this were the Cyclades, of course, they'd all be painted white; here there is more variety. Maybe more photogenic? Mind you, as you know, I'm quite happy with monochrome! Beautifully sharp and clear.

    Hello Kasia

    You know how much I like monochrome; here I'm wishing there were some hint of colour. Some people are so hard to please! But the composition is to die for. I'm assuming you were at the 300mm end of your zoom; even so, that moon does look large. You haven't been monkeying around with it in P'shop have you? (You know I probably would have!) Incidentally, this seems to be a return to the 2-D series...

    Kind regards

    Hello John

    Striking is certainly an apposite word! The red hair steals the show here, which is no bad thing. But I hope I'm not suggesting anything indelicate here, but she seems to have the leg of a monopod disappearing up her coat. Fur-trimmed it may be, but I hate to think where that monopod goes. Come to think of it, I may even prefer the WS photograph, though it may not be quite as appropriate for TE: here for some reason, the "No Entry" sign bugs me. Unless of course it refers to the monopod...

    Hello Trevor

    I'm honoured, given your comment of a few weeks ago about how pushed you were for time and thus would be writing few critiques for a while, actually to have received one! But you've still got time to post, I'm glad to see. This recent Autumnal shot is nicely composed, with the tree partially framing the view of the impressive castle on its bluff. The sheep make the château somewhat more domestic, perhaps. And hey: the colours appear natural, subtle, even subdued!

    Regards

    Will

    P.S. Hope you ate plenty of cheese!

    Hello Bev

    This is a nice, simple, uncluttered composition, with strong lead-lines, lovely light, and the main tree placed significantly. Not, as you say, Wordsworth country, but I'm sure he'd have been happy to knock out an ode!

    Hello Malgo

    This is a wonderful interior, with lots of interest in the murals on the walls and ceiling. The warm light is very welcoming as well. But for me - and you too, to judge from your note - it's the presence of the knitting lady that makes the photograph. I assume this monastery has been opened to the public only recently: at least since the fall of the Soviet Union.

    Hello Klaudio

    A proud baker with his product! I love these Middle-Easter flat breads, and often make pitta at home. I don't know what this Iranian bread is called: Nan-e barbari maybe? If it were in India it would be Naan, so the name may be similar. Since I retired, I make all the bread we eat at home, so I fully endordse your comment about there being no person nobler!! Yes his foot is missing: but there's plenty of head-room above him! And while I'm in whinge mode, what about the white balance? But hey, I really like this environmental portrait.

    Hello Mesut

    I must say, I enjoy this set of images that you're currently presenting. Street performers are always good subject matter, and as they're concentrating on what they are doing, they don't get uptight or embarrassed about being photographed. It's a kind of gypsy tradition it seems to me, although the instruments may be different.

    Regards

    Hello Gert

    Beautiful, and fine quality - again - from a forty-year old transparency. What an amazing archive you've got. I've scanned a fair few negs and trannies in my time, and am interested in the equipment and settings you use to get this level of sharpness and saturation. And how much Photoshop work do they need to remove fading, dust, scratches and so on?

    Hello Paul

    Very dramatic landscape, made more so I think by the cloud partially obscuring the valley in the middle distance. The precipitous mountainsides are emphasized by the diagonals slashing across the frame. The church tower stands out well against the clouds.
