    Hello Constantino,

    With the rugged stones everywhere, on the street and the walls of the houses Makrinitsa must be such a pleasure to just walk around and explore. The flowers add highlight to the gray hues of the stones. Well composed with a judicious selection of a vertical format.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Chris,

    This is just about the best example of upheaval in landmass created by plate tectonics. The striations are all parallel, and orthogonal to the slope of that hill on the left. Fabulous! I've sailed within the territorial waters of Albania, but never walked on shore.

    Warm regards, Chris,

    Hello Ann,

    The light is perfect on this rugged terrain, but the focal point is the red cupola. You've managed to put it at 63.8% from the left, better than the 66.6% (but not quite the 61.8% of the golden ratio. I remember when you visited the area. What a wealth of you must have in your collection.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Ann,

    All these pictures I am seeing just now from Craig and Malgo of Lofoten are urging me to travel north again - and this one convinces me even more that this is what I need to do!

    A beautifully simple composition taken in lovely bright sunlight, the snow covered rocks standing out beautifully against the dark sea and a fine sky above. And the image is almost monochrome save for the tiny bright red splash of colour on the roof of the little lighthouse which is perfectly placed in the frame.

    Glorious light, tones and contrasts, spot-on exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Silvio,

    The wisps of clouds add additional atmosphere to the expansive panorama. I've seen the magnificent Dolomites from the air, but never from ground level (in this case from high ground). Warm regards,

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    It really surprises me how few people mark photographers' notes as "useful" - because in this case I felt that your note was very much more scary than either of the wonderful photographs you've shown us today.

    Your main photograph is delightful and, unlike Hitchcock's "The Birds", is not the slightest bit scary - in fact, I think it would make wonderful wallpaper for a kiddies' bathroom! The light and colours are divine and I love the simple composition in which we can just see a glimpse of the water's surface at the very top.

    Then we read your note and empathise with your fear - all I can say is that you're a damn sight braver than I would have been - I wouldn't have ventured anywhere near the water - then we look at your workshop picture which clearly has been taken after the event and from above the surface - and we see a rather indistinct yet rather horrid and evil looking shape shimmering in the deep, presumably very near where you were actually swimming. Damn scary. In fact, it's a wonder you managed to hold your camera still enough to take that second picture.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Judging by the clarity of the water in both these shots, your shutter control has been second to none. :)

    Hello Ann,

    An interesting note and two excellent photographs (or at least two different editions of the one photograph!) to illustrate it.

    Much though I do like your processing of the main image, I think I have to agree with Les in preferring your workshop (i.e. the original) image as it gives a fine wider view of the environs of Brick Lane and its graffiti. But both are excellent with very good lighting, colours, exposure and sharpness - and your processing work is very well done too!

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Les,

    This is a stunningly beautiful photograph and has been very well worth the effort and dedication which has clearly gone into making it: I can imagine you having to seek out this spot, set up your tripod, compose the image in your viewfinder, then estimate exposure, lock your focus, pop on your 10-stop ND filter, set your calculated exposure and eventually take the picture! Hard work but at least, after all that, the sunlight still remained to brighten up that foreground so beautifully.

    Yes, a perfectly composed shot with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and wonderful depth. The details and sharpness are superb too.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.
