    Hello Abmdsudi

    Classically framed and composed, and I love the muted colours, where the old man almost seems to blend with the background. I wonder if he knew you were taking his photograph.

    Hello Rob

    "Little boxes, little boxes,
    There's a green one and a yellow one,
    And they're all made out of ticky-tacky,
    And they all look just the same."

    But they make a wonderful photograph, where the emphasis is on repeated patterns, as well, perhaps, as making a comment on modern urban dwelling.

    Regards

    Hello Kari

    What an apt title! You did well to resist zooming in any tighter, so as to include those reflections. But this must be a crop from a horizontal frame: I wonder what you chose to cut off...

    Hello Lars

    Thanks for the EXIF data: I wonder if TE will ever get round to sorting the problem out! This is a well-judged and well composed shot, with the imposing castle sitting squarely on the thirds position, and a heartening naturalness to the colours.

    Hello Fabiano

    Yes, I remember visiting these "caves" too: from memory, they are set into the side of cliff and we went in at the top, and followed staircases down through the barrels to the tasting room beneath. Lovely wine, great place, pleasing photograph.

    Hello Nicolas

    As ever it's the light that makes the photograph, but of course you had to get yourself into the right place to take it! The tree seems to make the composition; the long zoom (I'm guessing you were using the extreme 300mm capability) has foreshortened the depth of the scene, and rendered it almost two-dimensionally. Excellent.

    Regards

    Hello Gert

    There's something "honest" about this style of street photography. I don't suppose the girl would thank you for taking her picture: her stance appears a little awkward. But it's also unselfconscious, unposed, spontaneous. The bubbles add a slightly surreal element (unless you're a West Ham United supporter of course!) I like it! And thanks for the explanatory note: I was wondering about your title.

    Regards

    Hello John

    Your note tells the story of so many small and pretty villages world-wide that are on the tourist trail. It reminds me of Kyrenia in N. Cyprus, where all the old carob warehouses have become restaurants and bars. But it's a living. Your photograph has a lovely mix of lighting; I'm glad you had the presence of mind to take your tripod with you!

    Hello Ourania

    A beautiful scene: to quote Jerome K. Jerome, I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. But then, I'm retired. I'm sorry to sound a frivolous or flippant note on what for you was a very sad day, and what for the gentleman in the photograph was hard labour. An excellent environmental portrait.

    Wide open spaces, accentuated no doubt by your extreme wide-angle lens. Relatively few people either, which adds to the spacious, expansive feel. Good notes, too!

    Hello John

    Probably my favourite food in the world. I'd love to know what these local cheeses are (one is apparently called Lagosta?), and I reckon there's some Manchego in there somewhere. I tend to agree with you about the opera-singing looks of the cheese-monger, and I'm sure she could belt out a tune with the best of them. You've given us a strong environmental portrait to go with your strong cheese.

    Hello Gert

    I approve of bicycles. Who wouldn't? Yet I get a sense almost of claustrophobia when I look at these serried stacked racks and ranks of them. But I like the repeated patterns, neatly broken by the bloke deciding where to put his machine. OK they're motor-scooters, but I'm nevertheless reminded of this posting of mine from a few years ago. In both photographs, the bikes dominate the frame and indeed dominate the figures who have the temerity to intrude.

    Hello Craig

    As I'm sure you know, infra-red photographs are not supposed to feature here on TE, so I'd keep quiet about that if I were you! Why they're banned I have no idea: I used to shoot on IR film sometimes, and love its surreal qualities. But how do you replicate that on a digital camera? I know it's possible to remove some internal filters, but I suspect you mean that this has had a "faux-IR" treatment in Photoshop. As for the unpopularity of abstract architectural images, I'm not sure. I still miss the work of Juan Ferragut...

    For myself, I like this a lot: dynamic diagonals, strong b/w treatment, frame-filling composition. What's not to like?

    Regards

    Hello Benny

    Your title may have been inspired by the Yardbirds, but I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that they got their title from an H.G. Wells sci-fi story, which is probably more relevant to your futuristic photograph! I like it a lot. But I may have been tempted to move those two advertising signs out of shot (and probably been told off in the process!)

    Cute, sweet, cheeky. I'm glad you were on red alert for a candid photograph and that your reflexes were sharp enough to catch this lovely moment. Not sure the image itself is pin sharp, but that's the nature of street photography.
