    Hello Sothy

    This is an extremely effective, atmospheric low-key shot. I particularly like the arc of cloud that seems to be pointing at the stacks. Maybe the highlight in the bottom left-hand corner is a mite distracting, as it's the brightest element in the frame; apart from that, this is a winner.

    Hello Ana

    As you say, Bhopal is famous for all the wrong reasons. I should say infamous. And I don't think I've seen photographs from here before. So it's good to show this place. It looks normal! People are going about their everyday business, the sun is shining, the architecture is beautiful. I wonder if anyone's ever posted photographs from Chernobyl...

    Hello Gyorgy

    A clever and funny shot. I echo both Kasia's point about the low viewpoint, and Rosemary's concerning the Pink Floyd album cover! It also reminds me of an image I posted some months back. For the record, here it is!

    Hello Silvio

    An unusual - for you - monochrome photograph, and I really like it. The statue looks almost out of place in this alley, which you tell us is again becoming run-down. A good observation of an alley which few, I imagine, would think of photographing.

    Hello Fredrik

    175 views and no smileys! What is the world coming to? This photograph deserves some recognition. The modest telephoto has drawn us into the frame and compressed the perspective a tad, making the mountain even more precipitous than it probably is, which I guess is quite steep. Good colours too. Your home town, eh? A place I'd love to visit, if only the beer wasn't so expensive!

    Hello Samuel

    Welcome back after a very long break! And thanks for replying to my question, albeit 2 years late!! This is a wonderful Autumnal mountain landscape, taken at a good time of day to maximise interest in the sky. Actually for my taste, the colours have been a tad too saturated, and the copyright symbol right across the middle of the frame does the photograph no favours; nevertheless, this is a very effective, well-composed image.

    Regards

    Hello Subhendu

    Excellent framing! And good light management too: it must have been difficult to retain light inside the doorway while keeping the colour in the wall from washing out. I assume we're allowed to award points/smileys again now!

    Hello John

    I fell asleep looking at your photograph, and fell off my chair reading your note! Not really. The image doesn't do your title or the sign justice: it's actually pretty decent! Good depth of field, interesting sky, natural colours, the lead line of the road disappearing far from Dull... Inspired!

    Hello Boa

    The eyes have it! Obviously. I'm with you as far as ballet is concerned; but I can see a tasty photo opportunity when I see one, and I'm certainly seeing one here. Excellent framing and composition; without the passer-by, there's less of a picture. Good work.

    Hello Jean

    There certainly are strong winds! I was sailing in the RS400 Eurocup earlier this year up at Riva, where there's a reliable afternoon thermal wind called the Ora, which blew most days, and on one memorable occasion, reached 28 knots for a couple of hours. Hard work! Riva looks a lot like this, and in turn, I'm reminded of the Cinque Terre area of north west Italy. Beautiful!

    As you say, a view, but no roof. You've filled the frame with this famous ruin, and have resisted the temptation to overcook the saturation, for which much thanks! Pin sharp and well exposed. Good work.

    Hello Chris

    Fine, natural-looking colour, and a beautiful scene. Maybe I wouldn't have stuck the boat in the middle of the frame, but there's plenty of room for her to progress into! Like me, I suspect the occupants are wondering what's through that gap. You're right about that splash of sunlight on the far mountainside.

    Hello Ray

    Of course by photographing this monolith from this viewpoint, you're bound to invite comparisons with Ansel Adams, so allow me to be the first! For that reason, it was probably sensible of you to shoot in colour, and that has certainly lent something to the photograph: as John has already said, the beautiful reflections are an important element in the composition. Superb location: I envy you! I wonder what Adams would have made of it...

    Hello Delphine

    I guess you're right about the high contrast leading to burnt out highlights, but as far as I'm concerned that's not a problem at all. I can see into the shadows, and the sky is for once, pretty irrelevant! An interesting place and residents' initiative, well illustrated by you.
