    Bonsoir, cher Ourania,
    Cette danse traditionnelle est charmante avec ces jeunes enfants. De plus, les habits de couleur font chanter l'ensemble de la composition.

    Bonsoir, cher Carlo,
    Joli mois de mai pour prendre un peu de couleur sur la plage de sable fin, se baigner dans les vagues écumeuses. Les immeubles de la ville bénéficient d'une vue magnifique sur la mer.
    Très bonne prise de vue.
    Amitiés.

    Bonjour Roland,

    Yes, this is definitely a case of rôle reversal! It's most usual for the youngsters to be playing with their mobiles but here it is the elderly man.

    I love the strong diagonal composition and how the man sits in quite deep shade while the young people walk in the bright sunlight.

    A well composed shot, very well seen and taken, with lovely light and fine textures, tones and contrasts.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    Again you have written a fascinating note and presented us with a beautifully composed photograph to complement it.

    The gentleman at the far end of this row of arches holds the composition together superbly well while the soft light from above brings out all the details and textures of the ancient stonework beautifully.

    Lovely light, fine subdued colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ourania,
    I think many parents' hearts were filled with pride and joy this evening, and I wouldn't rule out that a few eyes were a little bit wet. Although they turn their backs at us we can feel the children's own pride after the performance. The warm light is wonderful.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean Claude,
    This is a vivid and inspiring city view. The strong vertical formed by the monument is backed up by the church tower behind it and supported by the palms. The large crowd surrounding the statues creates a vibrant atmosphere. The glimpses of s fountain at the bottom is another nice feature. The colours and light tell us what a beautiful day it was.

    Hello Luis,
    A very nicely composed photo combining history and modern life, culture and business. The crane is elegantly designed and complements the church tower quite well. There are many red details here and there in the photo which brighten the view of the sunny area with so many white features. As always the sharpness is perfect and you have handled the light excellently.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    This is a nice scene depicting life as it was before Britain joined the European Union. Let's hope you won't have to go back as far as this ;-).
    It's a nice and colourful photo and the costumes are very impressive. I can easily imagine the amount of research and work required to make them.
    With some clever photoshopping it should be possible to hide the blue door behind more trees, but it would have to be done carefully, otherwise It could be very obvious.
    As for your question about the painting seen from the tower in Maastricht: I had absolutely no idea what I was going to see from above, I was very pleasantly surprised. Walking across the square I hardly thought about the paint, and if I even noticed it I could not imagine what it would turn out to be.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    Heat, fountains and children go well together. If this is the kind of fountain that seems to be almost turned off, and then suddenly erupts in a great splash of water, that little girl must have had fun. Of course not much was happening on such a hot day, but as you know I like such days when a quiet, unspectacular life can be observed. You framed the view of the fountain well with the houses on the sides and in the background, and with the tiles of the street at the bottom.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    Far more beautiful and more peaceful than the film scenes with Jane Fonda and her dad, this is a truly lovely view, perfectly composed with the little cottage and its reflection well placed in the frame and with colours which we would normally associate with autumn rather than springtime.

    A fascinating note, especially about the Celtic legend of which I was not aware, and a fabulous photograph to accompany it.

    Gorgeous warm light and colours, stunning reflections on the calm water of the loch, perfect composition and exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. And not a swan to be seen (perhaps the strontium from the lead mines bumped them all off).

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    A spectacular Alpine view where the sun shines perfectly on the two peaks seen through a gap in the clouds. It's a simple but very nicely balanced composition.

    Hello Lisa,
    You found a movie title that suits this photo perfectly. The reflections are beautiful and make the diagonals of the hillside more obvious. It's a very nicely composed and well cropped photo.
    Kind regards,
