    Hello Ann,

    These mediaeval fairs provide a wealth of opportunities for photographers and I'm really disappointed that the one which used to be held in Lanark on a yearly basis is now defunct.

    It can be very difficult in situations like this to come up with shots which are not cluttered but you have done exactly the right thing here by "homing in" closely on your subject and knocking any distractions well out of focus.

    Of course, the first thing we do when looking at a picture like this with reflections is to look for the photographer - but I don't see you anywhere - unless, of course, you're the old crone with the pointy Quaker type hat on the left. :o)

    A very well composed shot in which your subject is stunningly clear and sharp - I can see every detail of his beard, his helmet and his chain mail - and with a background which is beautifully out of focus but in which we can still see evidence of a tall tent, so typical of battle scenes from the 15th Century.

    Lovely light, glorious colours, fine reflections and spot-on exposure with exquisite detail in your main subject.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Leslie. Gladys's photo showed the horses at rest and was a fine study of equine strength, whereas here we see this strength in motion. Special POV, one that would be most apt for a painting. Nice composition using an equilateral triangle, particularly with the horse on the right and the man plus fresh furrow. Great light and DOF. Regards. Klaudio.

    They are beautiful creatures Gladys. One hears about this or that wild creature becoming extinct but no mention is made of the many varieties of domesticated animals which filled specific niches in the past and which are rare now. So many species of pigs, chickens, ducks, horses and dogs would be included in the game of diminution. Nice details as they face the sun. Best wishes. Klaudio.

    Hi John. Pastorale is a lovely and fitting title for this charming image. looking at this place bathed in sunshine and peace, it is difficult to reconcile with the terrible things that are happening on the international arena.I read recently that research has shown that chimpanzees are natural born killers. Despite evolution, we haven't developed much further from them, we just have better killing "tools" than just sticks,teeth and fists. Best wishes. Klaudio.

    Zdravo gospodjice Dijana. Za zavrsiti i predati tvoju tezu morala si posjetiti Iran, dal ne? Interesantna tema. Vidio sam nekoliko modernih filmova iz Irana koji bas eksploriraju iste teme kao i sto si ti i mnozina od tih filmskih diraktora bile su mlade Iranke. Jeli se moze procitati tvoj rad na internetu? Jako me zanima. Pozdrav. Klaudijo.

    Bonjour mon cher ami Philippe,

    Thanks to you, we learn about the architectural treasures of France, especially in the North. Just two weeks ago we were in Guernsey Island very close to France in the English Chanel. The peculiar design of the church is evacuative of Mont St. Michel.

    Warm regards,
