    Hello Luis,
    Another beautiful building with nicely painted walls and balconies. They are nicely adorned with plants hanging down the sides. Old traditions are kept alive in a very attractive and appealing way and you have again presented us with an immaculately balanced and exposed photo.

    Hello John,
    You have returned to your favorite area and it is easy to understand why. The trees have lost their leaves but they still stand tall and proud and cast fantastic reflections in the clear and calm water. The canal disappears behind a soft bend which makes me want to go there to see what happens after the curve. The air is clear and the photo has a perfect brightness and natural colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Ourania,
    I believe everything depends on the point of view.
    For English people this is an average type of weather. Tje winds which we would call extreme in Poland are average in the UK...
    We sort of have bad weather on daily basis. Notoften we have something what would qualify as drama.
    Butitis a great composition indeed with the red ship adding a nice touch in the distance.
    The wave are quite attractive too.
    Very well seen and captured!

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    Beautiful view from the balcony indeed. Great composition with the wooden elements making a nice foreground and the rock formations so impressive in the distance.
    Pleasant light and colors.
    Wonderful souvenir from the wild west. I may actually watch a Western movie in a moment...

    Helo Mesut,
    It was not a bad painting. This artist was quite qualified, so it's sad that it has been destroyed. That makes your series of photos a good document. From what I can judge it is also a good scan.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Daniel,
    Usually I don't care much for photos of cars, but this composition and tight cropping makes it more than just a photo of a car. The bright colour and the close look at small details make it interesting.

    Hello Claude,
    I liked the movie and its pastel colours (even though Les parapluies de Cherbourg was better), and these girls seem to capture the atmosphere quite well. Your well timed photo is quite an original contribution to TE.

    Hello Aldona,
    It's a very good and graphically eye-catching photo. I like the bright red, blue and green details and the surprised look of the children. The brick wall looks like a printed wallpaper. Quite original.

    Hello Bev,

    Oh, what a lovely photograph! I'm so jealous that you managed to capture such a lovely picture of this little baby wren and so nice that it sat for just a little while in Len's workshop for you to take this fine image.

    In general, light in workshops isn't that good - so very well done for managing to take such a fine picture in poor lighting conditions.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I've been a bit busy too so must also apologise for not having been around on TE for a couple of weeks. And, not only am I jealous of this photograph but, having recently bought myself a spanking new compressor, I've got my eye on those air tools of Len's on which your little wren is sitting! :)

    Hello György,
    I wouldn't go so far as to say that the title is better than the photo, but it is a very funny title. The photo is very eye-catching, partly because of the bright colours, especially the yellow bag, but also the unusual environment and most of all the great interest these people show in something on the ground. Something interesting is going on, which makes the photo captivating. We don't know exactly what they are doing but we can imagine a story.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    By the way, did you see if they ever found the contact lens?

    Hello John,

    An interesting note and a beautiful portrait of this lovely man whose face expresses the experience of many years of faithful service as a fireman. You have captured his relaxed pose perfectly with excellent eye contact, fine composition, lovely true colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Hello Rob,
    The main reason I liked the clowns in Rotterdam was not really the clowns as such, but the photo opportunities they offered along with the spectators. Here the moon sculpture gets a company that Rondinone probably not quite expected. But you grabbed the chance of combining it with interesting and colourful reflections, including a photographer. The environment improved the sculpture a lot.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    A very interesting collection of photos from 36 years. What is obvious is that the quality of your photos has improved a lot and that your son no longer travels with his dear mum. The weather seems to have been the same for 36 years, but a tree that had grown below the tower in 2004 has already been cut down. I imagine there must have been some careful restorations in all these years, but luckily they didn't change the appearance of these fine old buildings.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    The view towards the sea is beautiful and the composition with the old vault in the foreground is well considered. The seagull coming so close was probably a surprise for you but it is included now as a great eye-catcher.

    Hello Paul,
    Enlarging this photo very much I notice what you describe as "not really sharp", but I have no problem watching it at the normal size, so your hands were obviously stable enough. It's a fine photo with interesting sights on several levels. This really looks like a nice place and seeing the behavior of people it is obviously also a safe city. I am not surprised that the prices were steep at that café, considering its location, but I am shocked to learn about the weak cocktails. ;-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a very beautiful, simple photo. I would even call it poetic. The citrus fruits have a fantastic dark orange glow from the last rays of the sun, the half moon and the bird add fine details and are well placed on the clear and almost purple sky. It's a well composed photo, combining skill and luck (considering the bird entering the view at the right moment).
    Your description of 12-14 degrees as "very cold" made me smile.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
