    Hello Silvio - I've been away for a while and slowly looking through posts that I missed. I really like this one of yours. The colours are very attractive and to see a hill town as night begins to fall puts a new spin on the subject. I love the detail in the sky.

    Warm regards

    Hello Stephen - I'm still playing TE catch-up after being away for a couple of weeks. This shot in your gallery caught my eye. Your 6 stitch panorama viewed on the beta-version is fascinating with such good detail and colour. I get a real 'feel' for the interior. How you managed to get this right is beyond me. Did you use a tripod?

    Warm regards

    Considering the light I think you have done very well with this shot Les and I like the conversion to B&W; it works well with the slight graininess of the shot. The photograph shows the beautiful interior space very well and I like the ceiling detail and parade of Gothic arches very much.

    This is such a great shot Les, as you know I love your rural scenes and this one is so well composed and has been captured at a perfect moment. Both farmer and wife(?) are paying close attention to the straight lines and effectiveness of the plough as it carves its way through the soil. The detail is really good and I am enthralled by the scene.

    Hello Mariusz - Firstly, it was a shame that there was no window of opportunity for us to meet up in Yorkshire but I shall be back sometime and perhaps then? I trust you had a good time in Poland, judging by this lovely shot you found some good weather!

    What an attractive scene. The composition benefits from the colourful FG. The contrast of tones between it and the beautiful cathedral and surrounding buildings gives depth and context to the shot.

    A well chosen vertical composition and a scene that has lots of appeal.

    Warm regards

    Hello dear Carlo - There is a lovely softness in this shot which works so well with the subject matter. The light was just perfect. A simple scene but one which speaks of the quiet beauty of the Italian rural villages.

    Hello Angel - The splashes of red have a strong impact in this attractive scene; remove them and the image looses so much punch both in composition, colour and interest. This is a great lesson in how figures can add to a postcard view.

    Lovely.

    Hello Gerrit - What a contrast to the idyllic scenes of gorgeous Philippine beaches and a sad commentary on he skewed economics of the world we share. A wonderful DL shot; perhaps the subject matter is not 'pretty' but there is so much to see in this scene.

    Hello Malgo - I cannot remember ever seeing such a close up crop of these famous domes before. In most shots they look quite delicate, now I see that they are very sturdy. The composition with the inclusion of the statue presents a new take on a popular subject. Well seen.

    Hello Ourania - I love the lower half of this shot and think that has a super abstract punchiness. The contrast between the dark tones and vivid sunlit colours really pulls my eyes. I might be inclined to crop out the upper section but I am aware that TE doesn't allow reflections without reference to what is being reflected. A very creative and well seen shot.

    Have a good weekend

    This works for me Roland. Your elevated vantage point allows us to see the road marking as an almost flat and graphic design. The studied simplicity of the rad with markings and drains makes an excellent canvas for the cluster of workers.

    A super observation.

    Hello Serge - The composition of this shot allows us to see across so many fresh produce stalls. I feel that any shopper would be tempted by the fresh, colourful produce. You present a well managed shot with good detail, I especially like the interactions between the stall-holders and customers.

    Hello Jean - A coastal scene with lots of detail to enjoy. I like the fact that the small boat is well positioned within the frame and quite separated from the background detail. No clutter here, spacious and easy on the eye. An attractive presentation.

    Hello Trevor - A place very familiar to me and one which I remember as very special. When I was a child the tower was actually lived in and I have recollections of an elderly lady with many cats who showed us up to the top of the folly.

    Your lovely photograph is like looking back over the years; we too enjoyed picnics under these trees. A nostalgic scene and a shot that I like very much.

    I expect this man thought you were from the Turkish Welfare and checking on this old man and his claim for benefit! It makes for yet another Macjake photo-shoot where you manage to p*iss off the locals. Keep 'em coming I love 'em. Lots of character and another close escape for you....!

    Hello Carlo
    thanks for this dedication. I do love Igor Mitoraj's work and seeing this particular one in this setting is wonderful as it is so different to the similar statue at Canary Wharf in London. No less impact though and you have captured it beautifully.

    Thanks again - I love it!
