    Hello Christiane,
    I would probably not be much interested in the things found inside the department store, but the exterior is wonderful. There are many super architectural details of great artistic value. It's a good photo with fine colours and great clarity.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Bonjour Claude,

    You are certainly getting very good at this "panning" technique and are clearly managing to judge your shutter speed to the speed of the subject. Even 1/3 second seems remarkably slow for people walking, but it has certainly worked here surprisingly well. And, as you say, this whole thing is very much a "hit or miss" affair but if you take lots of shots you're bound to get lucky!

    This one is absolutely excellent, the heads and upper bodies of these two walkers (one a photographer) very clear while their legs are less sharp and their surroundings are beautifully blurred giving a real sense of motion. And you've managed this is a forest which probably had rather poor lighting conditions too.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Claude,

    as I've just commented to Roland, there is no doubt that wet dull weather does bring out the depth and vibrancy of colours - and it certainly has here. I'm not sure if Little Red Riding Hood had an umbrella or not but the bright red coat of this lady certainly makes her stand out vividly against the dark wet walls and roof of this ancient building.

    You have placed the main subject perfectly in the frame, nicely balanced by the pointed bits on the gables of the roof. The soft light and rich colours are lovely and the image is technically excellent.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Claude,

    As always, your timing is impeccable! All the elements in this well observed scene are perfectly placed in this frame as the nun walks across this bridge and approaches the large poster on the far wall on the right. There's little in the way of distractions too.

    A very fine candid shot with good light and colours and excellent technical quality - and an interesting and informative note as well.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Roland,

    There is no doubt that rain and dull weather bring out the vibrancy of colours better than bright sunlight and this fine photograph is no exception.

    This is a finely composed shot, despite the fact that it was probably taken quite quickly, as the head of the statue of Peter the Great peers over the top of the colourful umbrellas while all we see of the onlookers is their backs.

    Very well seen and very well taken with fabulous rich colours and excellent details and sharpness.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    An interesting note and a beautiful restful photograph of this Umbrian town set against a hillside of olive groves.

    I love you fine pleasing composition with the church tower perfectly placed in the frame and with a field with straw bales makes a fine foreground while the distant view of olive groves against a stunning sky tops it off perfectly.

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

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi dear Malgo,

    Despite what you say, I certainly think that this canyon is impressive! I agree, it's perhaps not quite on the scale of Bryce Canyon in the U.S. (which this photograph actually reminds me of), but your photograph, especially in its larger version, shows off this miracle of nature beautifully and very impressively.

    I love your composition with the snaking riverbed leading the eye along the depths of the canyon while the tall red and ochre rocks tower up on either side. And you've very wisely included some foreground rocks at the bottom of your image too.

    Lovely soft light, fine rich warm colours, perfect exposure and excellent depth of field and sharpness throughout.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    This is indeed a very striking photograph!

    The play of light and darkness above the point of Maya is gorgeous and the colours are beautiful. And what a lovely chance to have caught a fine rainbow in the sky during this stormy weather!

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

    Hello Neyvan,

    What a beautiful photograph and what a beautiful river as it starts its long journey towards the sea!

    I love how the sunlight passing through the little ripples on the water makes lovely shimmering patterns on the rocks and stones below. The light on this river is beautiful and you have composed this photograph perfectly with the line of the river standing out perfectly against the distant lush landscape and the glorious blue sky above. Perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Malgo,
    As far as I remember I didn't see this church. I am not a collector of churches or palaces like you, unless it's an outstanding church in Rome or Florence. I was a bit different long ago, and once I even guided art history students to about a dozen mainly Baroque churches in Rome. The light is very good inside this church, or your camera handled it well. To me the composition depends a lot on the two praying persons in the foreground. They mean everything to the atmosphere.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
