    Hello Nicole

    Wrecks, whether they are boats, cars, buildings or whatever, have an enduring fascination for the photographer. I'll bet if this fishing boat had been spick and span, you may well not have taken the picture. But I'm glad you did, as you've presented us with a lovely, atmospheric and slightly sad, nostalgic photograph. Carcasses of fishing boats are to be found all around this coast: I remember making similar shots in Camaret.

    Hello Stephen

    A tiny chapel, but perfectly formed. I like the slate-tiled tower. Its surroundings are very attractive too: at the risk of sounding trite, it looks quintessentially French!

    Hello Daniel

    We didn't get as far as the Tara Canyon when we were in Montenegro two years ago. And now I see your excellent photograph, I really regret our decision not to go that far. Your handling of light is well controlled and I particularly like the pinkish hues in the sky, though I suspect they may be the result of Photoshop intervention. A very satisfying landscape image.

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Frame-filling portrait, great expression, a broad grin and unselfconscious eye contact. I suppose it's the teeth that make the shot. Another winner.

    Hello Klaudio

    This is a lovely image of a Muslim garden. They were/are past masters at the art of garden design and architecture, and this reminds me strongly of the gardens of the Alhambra in Granada. This looks bigger, however. I can almost hear those fountains...

    Hello John

    I'm a sucker for dogs, so could hardly pass this one by. And of course it's very close to where we were a couple of years ago. I don't remember doing any serious walking during that meeting, but the weather wasn't conducive to much except sitting in pubs! This is a cracking shot, with the fallen tree providing a natural frame for the bottom of the image, and incidentally a vantage point for Pebbles! I also like the hint of mist that has lent the distant view a Scottish softness.

    Kind regards

    Hello Nicolas

    A funny and charming street scene, well captured à la sauvette. Maybe a touch over-exposed - the highlights seem to be blown - and with a slightly bluish tone. But these don't distract from what is an amusing grab shot.

    Hello Mariusz

    I'm a bit late finding this, but better late than never. Your wide angle has emphasized the wide open spaces of this part of the country, and incidentally made the Roman fort look larger than it presumably is! Excellent definition in the sky, and good natural colours (not the hyper-saturation we too often get on this site).

    Kind regards

    Hello Bartek

    Who could walk past this mural and not take a photo of it?
    It's colourful, subversive and interesting. Apparently it's something about "country living", but I expect that's wrong, as we can't see the end of the slogan. Good work.

    I love the idea of a "triangular square"! And I agree with you about this being a pleasant, colourful moment, well worth recording. All the kids are wearing trainers. I don't know why I pointed that out...

    Hello Alfons

    As far as I'm concerned, rules are there to be broken! I don't find the fact that you've subverted the Golden Thirds Rule a problem at all; and I approve your choice of monochrome too. You have indeed captured a happy moment. I like it very much.

    Hello Les

    Well-chosen viewpoint to include the windswept trees, and the wider view. The fence marks the boundary between the wildness of the moor proper and the farmland abutting it, and your photograph shows wilderness and cultivation side by side.

    Hello Craig

    Let her go on her own! Then you could get this shot with her paddling across the lake! Mind you I'm not sure it would be an improvement, as this simple landscape absolutely insists on the raw grandeur of nature. And I'm glad you allow the photograph to speak for itself rather than beefing up the saturation, contrast and sharpness to unrealistic levels (which often happens on this site, though you're not one of the guilty ones!)

    And I'm sure you enjoyed your beer! You've given us a cracking land/sea/riverscape: I particularly like the low horizon line which emphasizes that beautiful sky and the smallness of the yachts on that huge expanse of water.

    Hello Roland

    The mosaic itself could have been worthy of a shot, as the woman in your photograph shows. But you've taken a much more interesting image, giving us both the ancient artwork,and the viewer snapping it. I'm reminded of a shot by Martin Parr where he shows not only the iconic Pisa tower, but also the tourists' typical response to it as well.

    Hello Daniel

    Your choice of b/w has really paid off here: you've presented us with a wonderfully and subtley toned landscape. The vertical format works well and emphasizes both the distance from front to back, and the very big depth of field that the f/22 aperture has given.
    Nice work.

    You've not been shy of getting close with your wide-angle and filling the frame with your subject. Good slight under-exposure, with no strong highlights, but the subject seems to need this quiet, retrained approach.
