    Hello Silvio

    What a special moment you've caught. The castle seems to be floating on a sea of mist. Spooky but beautiful.

    Hello Isabela

    It's worth getting up early when you are rewarded with scenes like this! Beautiful composition, rightly emphasizing that gorgeous sky, and using the thirds rule very cannily. I like the opposition of the burnt-out sun and the black silhouetted figure.

    Hello Andrew

    Good to see you back again. And I think most the the problems that TE has been experiencing have finally been sorted. I stopped all activity for the best part of a month: there didn't seem to be much point in struggling along, and felt that if people stopped, that might just goad the techies into action. I like these two posts of yours a lot. Particularly the intricate geometries and subtle colours. Good work!

    Hello Kasia

    I said I'd be back after I stopped sulking. I remain amazed by - and not a little jealous of - your questing, adventurous spirit. And it's rewarded you with some fine, unusual images, like this one. Bleakly beautiful, thoughtfully composed, and with just the necessary hint of human presence. I might have under-exposed the photograph by 1/2 stop less, but what do I know, or you care? It's fine as it is.

    Kind regards

    Well this is not very seasonal for us at the end of Winter in England, but all the more welcome for that! Lovely colours, especially in the water, and a fine sense of composition too. Good work.

    Hello Takero

    You have spotted a very telling and significant moment here. I wonder what the old lady is saying to the girls. It looks as if you were close enough to hear... A nice candid capture, with the girls paying attention to the old lady and not your camera!

    Hello Gerrit

    This is a calmly beautiful spot, which looks totally unspoiled as you've framed it. I do hope there's not a car-park just out of shot! But what must be fairly close at hand is the notorious Guantanamo Bay detention centre. That thought doesn't spoil my enjoyment of your photograph!

    Hello Jean

    You did well to find a pristine area of snow with no footprints, ski tracks, etc. I like the fact that you've lowered your camera slightly to minimize the sky in favour of all that foreground snow. To keep the illusion of a completely wild, natural scene, I might have cloned away the vapour trails, but that really isn't important. Lovely image.

    Hello Kari

    I had not realised that snowmobile routes were so numerous or officially supported and maintained. Your photograph is taken in beautiful light, and very neatly composed on the rule of thirds. Not too much traffic at these crossroads, I suspect!

    Hello Satya

    I like the idea of giving us a flavour of the place by offering a collage of images. Well chosen, and well put together. I agree that as these are mobile images, showing them small individually like this makes good sense. Good work!

    A very well-seen street documentary photograph. Assuming he wasn't aware of your presence, and therefore not posing, this makes a very effective candid portrait. Does he try to sell the umbrellas I wonder...

    Hello Jean

    A striking image. I like the partial frame of icicles at the top! It's possible to pick out the shapes of other people through the steam I think, which adds another element to the composition.

    Hello Les

    The fast shutter speed has certainly succeeded in conveying the strength and force of the waves. You've done well to wait for the moment of maximum impact to fill the frame with violent action. As ever, I approve of your choice of monochrome!

    Hello Maciej

    This makes a really first-class image! It's got loads of graphic impact, it's beautifully framed and composed, and the colour is striking. Although there are people in shot, the overall feel is of graphic abstraction. I like it a lot!

    A photograph which almost defines the Mediterranean. The characteristic fishing boats and the bright colours are a welcome sight on a cold March morning! Your photograph reminds me of one I posted a while ago from Collioure in the south of France near the Spanish border. Lovely work.

    I'm very familiar with the Dart, as my parents used to live in Teignmouth for many years. The Plym looks exactly the same, which isn't surprising given their proximity! Lovely bucolic image: thanks for reminding me that I must go back to Dartmoor soon.

    Hello Noel

    That was a rich seam of people photography you mined back at the 2012 Haymaking Festival: if I'm not mistaken, you've posted several images from it before. This is a lovely portrait of the lady with her mouth-watering fare. I like the near-perfect symmetry which reminds me of a child's drawing or an illustration in a book of fairy stories. It's not a gingerbread house, is it? I bake all our bread these days, and appreciate the amount of effort she must have put into producing this lot. Hope you bought a loaf or two!
