    Ciao caro Carlo,

    An interesting note and a fine "graphic" image, very well seen and very well taken.

    A fine composition with strong geometrical lines and strong perspective. Good light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Asa,

    What an interesting note you have given us as well as a delightful photograph to illustrate it.

    Such a typical Swiss scene, the tall slender tower of the church beautifully depicted against a backdrop of magnificent mountains. Your composition is perfect with all elements very pleasingly arranged within the frame: the light and colours are lovely, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Gerrit,

    Yes, this little house must indeed have a wonderful view but you have also captured a beautiful scene here - and that little house provides a perfect focal point, perfectly placed in the frame.

    The distant view across water to distant hills is fabulous beneath a wonderfully interesting sky but what I love most is the detail and clarity in the foreground grasses, ferns and trees.

    Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Eleu,
    You composed this very nicely with great graphical quialities. The slightly leaning white cross and the white letters balance and match each other well. Similarly there is a good contrast between the yellowish foreground and the reddish hillside. Everything basking in the sun shining brightly from a clear blue sky. The cross reminds us of those who perished here during their hard work of mining the silver.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Craig,
    The woman isn't quite 1960, but it would have been a great pity to clone her away just for the sake of timelessness :-). It's a fine panoramic kind of shot, and from this distance I really enjoy the old cars, because they play a role as additional colors more than being close studies of cars, if you see what I mean. The way you describe the food situation in Havana I fear the city wouldn't really suit me after all. I am very dependant on getting proper food at regular times, unfortunately. I see you are preparing a trip to India. There you will have no problems finding food whenever and wherever you wish. It may be a good idea to eat a lot of vegetarian dishes. Usually cheaper, tastier and safer.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    In the upper left corner there is actually a room with a view. ;-) Most of this tower must have been very dark and gloomy and probably very smoky. Not a very healthy place to live. Or perhaps people didn't actually live here unless there were raids or wars going on (which seems to have been the order of the day a few hundred years ago). Watching the compactness of these walls from this low angle I get the impression it must have been an almost impenetrable place. It's a terrific choice of POV and the excellent sharpness and light management make it a pleasure watching this.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Serghei,
    The same trick again but the result and effect is quite different. The pattern is fascinating and the contrasts of orange, grey and black is terrific. This is very well done.

    Hello Rosemary,
    I love the clarity and fine light of this photo as well as the green bronze of the statue and the sandstone colour of the cathedral. You have captured the texture of the materials superbly. The statue is very expressive and this is underscored by the low POV.

    Hola Luis,
    great reportage from Marseille. I really appreciate it as I don't know much about this famous city. I am glad you also show the interior of this magnificent cathedral. It looks really beautiful.
    Great presentation, I like the symmetry.

    Hello Serge,
    This is a fine building. It may be old and battered, with the paint peeling, but there are lovely details and the texture of the wood is well captured. The two wheels leaning on the wall are beautiful details.

    Hej Trevor,
    Detta är en fin komposition i en vacker gråskala. Du fann en vacker blandning av gamla gravstenar, ett keltiskt kors, en ruin och ett kyrktorn. Det är en stämningsfull och vacker bild.

    Hello Leslie,
    I don't know if you have a special talent for making stormy skies look amazing or if the weather conditions at Dartmoor are significantly different from those in other areas. Somehow you manage to capture a lot of these marvellous skies with dramatic clouds and dramatic rays of the sun. Finding an expressive tree and a fine slab or two must be a combination of talent and good luck. This is an impressive photo with a very well handled light.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Gerrit,
    I like the glance the "blue" woman is giving you. It's a brief moment, but you captured it perfectly. Did you whistle at her or call her to make her look back? :-) I also like the contrast of the blue and yellow shirts and the light blue background of the sea.

    Of course they are staring at you! Who wouldn't be staring at someone coming from the other side of the earth pointing a camera at you as you are gossiping and having a cup of tea. This is a nice photo that tells us a lot of India in a very simple way.

    Another beautiful city view from a nice and sunny day. The palace is very impressive and beautiful, and the people on the boat are obviously enjoying the day. I like the small red details outside the palace and the very well handled light.
