    Hello Bev,
    I just peeked into to TE for the first time in ages and see your photo of a place I have visited and plan to visit again in the not to distant future. I was especially interested in the Wm Morris designs and Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
    This is a very eel composed photo with the slopes of the grounds creating diagonal lines -always good for composition.The visitors at bottom left ground the image and others give a sense of scale. The chimney on the thirds line helps too.
    best regards,
    Bev

    Hello Jan,
    this one stands out as a thumbnail as it is graphically strong. I like its basic simplicity and it has a certain charm.

    Hello Bev,
    thanks for this interesting and informative photo and note. We were there 2/3 years ago and didn't see this. This is one to definitely take our grandsons to see this summer. You have captured a nice warm light and the scale is obvious with the inclusion of the walker on the lane.

    Hello Mariusz,
    You have found a lovely warm light here. I like its slightly hazy quality. Nicely composed with the rocks forming diagonal lines giving a dynamic quality. The zigzag of the path adds to this.

    Hello Will,
    a pick up? dream on! What would this attractive young woman want with that old man? As for eye contact, she is looking into the middle distance, her head turned away to avoid any with either the passer by or the photographer.But old men can dream...... :-)
    But that's the fun of street shots, they are often open to interpretation, so well done for taking and posting a street shot as there aren't enough of them on TE.

    an amusing and creative capture. I like its graphical quality. Two figures in black, but are both alive? Excellent use of your photographer's eye.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    an intelligently composed image with our thinker walking into the frame. As he wears an outfit befitting the old China, perhaps his mind is on the past? Nice light, colours and dof.
    I haven't been on TE for a while so I was pleased to see you still posting your excellent photographs here.

    Hello Wiktor,
    I like the creative focus of this shot. I like that you have chosen to focus on the crowd rather than the Guards as would be usual. Often it is the reaction of the crowds to an event that is as interesting or even more interesting than the event itself.

    Hello John,
    great capture. Decisive indeed. Love his comical expression, not so sure about the groin close up! That knife looks like it is heading to spear him in the nose though -phew. Good dof.

    Just had a look at TE. I might come here one or twice a year... And I saw your 10 years anniversary photo. 10 years?! In this world of fleeting moments, where we surf from one social media to the other, it speaks volumes.
    So... let me congratulate you.
    I hope you are happy and that life is good with you...

    Hello Gert,
    you have provided an interesting note to a well observed scene. I like the composition with so much blank canvas at the top. I can sympathise with this couple as I recently spent time in the Lake District tourist honeypot town of Ambleside and village of Hawkshead (famous for its association with the children's author and Illustrator Beatrice Potter). I think the Japanese must have a particular fascination for her as they represented many of the tourists there. Tourist kept piling out of the coaches and filling the tea rooms (of which there were many).It was difficult to get a feel for the Hawkshead of old.

    this is fun and original. Leaves us guessing about this couple. I see they are tabloids readers anyway. Good compo, dof and interesting textues, stone, brick, cement.

    Hello Claude,
    I enjoy your eye for street photography. Finding interesting juxtapositions of posters and people is one of your talents. This is good compositionally as the plain blue at the bottom half is a good bg for the seated man. He is perfectly placed and as a comic expression on his face. Like all good street shots it leaves us to guess or make up a story -what is he reacting to on his mobile phone?

    Hello Trevor,
    I'm sorry that I missed this one. The dancing couple made me smile although I guess he's swinging her around (giving her a twizz as we used to say as children).Whatever they are up to they have attracted the attention of the other holidaymakers. This couple are placed to anchor the image. I like that the line of the pier and the tourist boat are on the same parallel.

    Hello Rosemary,
    this is a beautiful image. Love its luminosity and that big cloud filled sky. Nicely composed making use of a cypress to mark the thirds line. We can trace the line of the lane in the wayside trees and lie of the land. I like the little wild wayside flowers in the fg and the way the sunlight picks them out.

    Hello Ann,
    the first word that came into my head when I spotted this as a thumbnail was undulating, then I saw that you had used that description in your notes. Lovely play here of light and shade. And that light is softly luminous. I also like the layered effect created by the lines of trees and of course the undulations.

    Hello Noel,
    excellent shot, helped by that dramatic sky. Its colours are in contrast to the grey stone. A good composition with the apex of the fašade creating a useful triangle.
