    Hello Daniel

    A really interesting note to explain your photograph. At first I couldn't understand the orange building in the middle distance; your note makes all clear! Excellent exposure at what looks to be a challenging time for photograph-making. Tripod?

    Hello Sayeed

    Beautiful photograph, and I love the note too: though I'm intrigued by the somewhat gnomic comment about subjective deep secrets! The slow shutter speed has worked a treat to create the effect you wanted with the moving figures in the foreground. An excellent piece of work.

    Hello Silvio

    Another of your beautiful images of this region. I guess this is quite high up, as you say, and so a little cooler than the surrounding areas. Suffice to say that we have poppies growing in our fields here in Hampshire as well!

    What a triumph your trek with these shepherds was! A string of priceless images, of which this is another beautiful example. The colours and contrast are just right. Great stuff.

    Hello John

    So near and yet so far. I'd have come up to London had I known! Which reminds me: what about Kasia's exhibition at the Mall Galleries in August? Anyhow, your photograph is excellent. Technically, of course; but also aesthetically, largely because you've found an unusual (can't say original) viewpoint, and particularly because you've foregrounded people. In fact you've jogged my memory of a couple of snaps I took years ago from a yacht going through this bridge and causing the bugger to open. I think I'll post them, old though they are.

    See you soon.

    Regards

    Hello Craig

    Great story: sadly girls don't follow me around any more (did they ever?), maybe because I haven't got blue eyes... You're a lucky man, and grabbed a very decent photograph. I wonder if that's her brother to her left.

    Hello Mariusz

    You're my next-door neighbour today! And yes, I thought I was looking at a photograph of penguins at first. Last year I spent some time on Lindisfarne, and could see the Farne Islands in the distance, but never made it that far. But I have photographed puffins in the Scilly Islands...

    Hello Nicole

    I was standing on the same bridge just two weeks ago! We had sailed into the Venetian lagoon, and amazingly found a free mooring for the night just at the end of this very canal. It looks as though in April, Burano isn't too busy. In June it was certainly buzzing during the day, but we were living on the boat, and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the place was in the evening when all the tourists had gone back to Venice and their cruise liners... Nice work.

    Regards

    Hello Derek

    Drama here in bucketloads. Your note about the gale, and the waves makes me wonder if your camera survived the ordeal. I know you did, as you've posted this! I love the faint suggestions of green in the waves. Brave shot!

    I love 'em both! Very sad note here, but a great photograph. It's got to be the distressed blues on the wall that make it work so well. Nicely seen. What's this about your coming to the UK?

    Hello Silvio

    Without the mother and son, placed cunning near the thirds position, this wouldn't be half the shot it is. Although the flowers themselves are indeed beautiful, the inclusion of the figures is the vital element in the composition. Good work.

    Hello Gyorgy

    Reflections always make for intriguing images, and this photograph certainly proves that. On second thoughts, I'm probably wrong, as no-one else had seen it! Why are TE punters generally so blinkered??

    Hello Burak

    A backstreet in Athens, but nobody's to be seen! Perhaps they're all indoors watching television about the Euro-crisis. I'm sure we're all worried for them. Your photograph is a nice piece of street observation: without the graffiti it would not be so interesting!

    Hello Cristina

    Nice bit of street observation. The graffiti make the shot, but don't interest the two boys playing. I can't make out what they're doing: is it a ball game? I can't see a ball. Your title is presumably a reference to the song by Bill Withers (I had to look that up!)

    This is certainly a dramatic silhouette! I like the river giving us a slashing diagonal across the frame and the well-defined clouds. Sometimes it pays to expose for the sky!

    Hello Abmdsudi

    Red and green! A potent and contrasty combination. I'm intrigued by the covered faces. Are they Hindus, or as they're near the Pakistan border, maybe Muslim (which would explain it)? Or is it to ward off flies perhaps? Anyway, another excellent documentary photograph.

    Hello Renzo

    Drama in bucketloads here! Can't for the life of me understand why it's attracted so little notice. I'd have thought it was just the sort of shot that would go down well with TE punters! You've obviously "worked" on the sky (and I assume on the reflections too), but it's done with taste, and enhances the image. Beautiful work.

    I like the simple minimalism of your framing. I hope it's only used by cats these days: that broken rung could make it a death-trap for humans! It also makes the photograph...
