    Hi Klaudio
    I could also recognise this one before seeing your name - but by the title, rather than the picture! The picture itself is very spacious and those lamp cables meet nicely above the tower. And yes, that little fellow seems to have a sufi style hat on. Strangely enough, the young man having a drink is what draws the eye, with his red jumper. Wonderful light and shadows and the intricate beauty of the architecture.
    All is well here. Have a happy Xmas with the family, and maybe we'll get together next week or in new year.
    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hello Burak
    A lovely photo, which conveys a strong sense of stillness through the mirror-like water. The soft tones and subtle colours are beautiful.

    Greetings Clark
    A very sharp looking landscape taken against the sun. Very good exposure considering the contrast and the need to control the highlights in the foreground. But the snow has excellent detail. A delight.
    Happy Christmas to you.

    Hi abmdsudi
    Some problems with the image quality here, but I expect it's a crop or perhaps high ISO and slight focus or movement blur. But that's not important, as it's a very stiking image, with great contrast in colours and patterns, and a strong sense of movement conveyed by the woman. Terrific daily life image.

    Hello Silvio
    A rather gloomy but atmospheric winter photo of this old church. How deserted it looks, and the cracks made by time. A stark but effective 'full frontal' shot against a dull sky. A Christmas time shot with a difference.
    Regards, and Happy Christmas

    Hello Ourania
    A pleasing nautical photo captured with great timing. It's nice to see the blue sky and clouds in the rippling water, and one has a sense of time standing still. A slightly different angle and you wouldn't need the horizon at all - to my mind it's a little too high.
    Happy Christmas and new year to you.

    Hi Costantino
    Great colour in this daily life scene, winter still hanging around. The cafe looks inviting. Glad you included some of the blue of the next door shop, and the man in the warm overcoat.

    Hello Noel and happy Christmas.
    Very nice well saturated shot, making great use of the bright colours and the diagonal line the houses make, and they seem to be the 'meat in the sandwich' here. Great name for this terrace, too.

    Hi Gerrit.
    A very nice composition, with the windy road laid out behind the donkey rider as he makes his way slowly towards the camera. The green grass certainly softens the landscape. This one has a timeless quality.
    Regards,
    and best wishes for Christmas and new year.

    Hi Romano
    Nicely composed and well controlled exposure and highlights under a polarised sky. I like the look of it, the tone, well produced to convey a strong sense of the decaying industrial architecture. The perspective view is very strong and I like the presence of the person on the path.
    Happy Christmas,
    Regards,
    Andrew

    You celebrate with a nice sharp winter shot. Carefully composed and with the snowy highlights well under control. Delightful looking village. Love the funny looking arch, hope it's still safe.

    Salut mon cher Jean

    Through your Sicilian Journey, I am becoming nostalgic for Italia. The addition here of the lone person walking certainly gives us a sense of scale and the idea of loneliness and desolation. I last climbed Mongibeddu in 2010, and I love this place. The colours, sharpness and Rule of Thirds framing are impeccable. Congratulations.

    Bonne amities

    Dear Gerrit

    As a lover of oranges, orange blossom, orange trees, orange perfume (I am wearing some now) I could not go past this visual feast. The colours and textures are lovely. You have brought home to us the daily life in this country so well. Markets always seem to do that, and you have done it so well here.

    Excellent shot

    Ciao dear Ann

    Oooh la la! What a view! What a photo! The depth and sharpness really are incredible and I like that you chose the vertical frame. Gee that blue in the water, only accentuated by the beautiful ripples, really blows my mind. You lucky lady witnessing this splendour first-hand.

    Cheers and thanks for sharing this paradise with us so skilfully

    Ciao Will

    I love a good B&W, which appear here less and less, so this excellent example has sated me for a while. Excellent sharpness and definition. The contrast is spot-on and I love the symmetry of the glassy reflections. The anally-retentive part of me wants the full reflection, but no doubt, the angle at which you took the photo, prevented you from physically doing it. Great job.

    Cheers

    Ciao dear Stephen

    An excellent photo of the photographer in action. I wonder if he repaid the compliment? Anyway, I like the colours, tight framing and sharpness. The light on the right is a little blown out, but given the darkness of the other half of the photo, I see what you were battling at the time. Well done and have a great week.

    Cheers
