    Hi John. A scene that conveys happiness, excellent organisation, civic pride and by the looks of it, a good time for all ages and levels of fitness. A place one can easily fall in love with. I wish you as well the best for the festive season and a healthy New Year. (As long as health is with us, the rest follows.) Klaudio.

    Salam Abmdsudi. I am very jealous of your peregrinations to these remote places where the old China still shone in all its charm and uniqueness. I wonder how much has changed since 2006 as the young leave for better wages and internal tourists come in large numbers spoiling the equilibrium. You were fortunate to travel when you did. Superb ambience, wonderful technical mastery. A true Abmdsudi masterpiece. Best wishes. Klaudio. (Out of interest, no more distant travels the days?)

    Salut Gigi. Une belle image remplie avec des détails architecturaux fascinants, des couleurs vives et des jeux de lumière magnifique. Le POV choisi donne de la profondeur à l'image. L'inclusion de l'élément humain donne à l'image plus de profondeur. Meilleurs vœux. Klaudio.

    Hi Piotr. You couldn't have picked a better image with which to send your greetings. So European, so white Christmasy. Here in Australia it's never a white Christmas, sometimes it's a furnace sort of Christmas with temp. in high thirties. At times like that the Christmas turkey is hard to swallow. What is even more strange it's the piped music in shopping malls that play songs like "I am dreaming of a White Christmas" and "Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer." Superb POV/composition. Great quality in the details of the snow near and far. Poetic image. Stern Bozic i Sretna Nova Godina. Klaudio.

    Bonjour Roland,

    This is a delightful photograph from Venice and not like the "usual" pictures we see from this wonderful city.

    But here you have caught the moment of "high tide" perfectly as well as explaining it well in your note. How funny are the man's bright red boots! And I'm sure that the water looks far too deep for his boots too.

    A well captured moment with lovely light and colours and amazing details and sharpness.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Jean,

    I really love interior shots like this. And I admire people who can take them properly too - they are really challenging when the light is low and often very variable with very dark areas and very bright windows.

    But you have coped with the variations in lighting here exceedingly well to produce a nicely balanced composition with lots and lots of lovely colours and immaculate detail throughout.

    Your note is interesting and this looks like a lovely place to visit.

    Beautiful!

    Have a Great Christmas!

    Ciao Romano,

    This is a very striking photograph, mainly on account of the wonderfully bright light which illuminates the frontage of the old building, making it stand out spectacularly against the deep indigo sky above.

    I love your simple and imposing composition. The light and colours are fabulous and the details and sharpness exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Les,

    This is a lovely photograph, taken at just the right time. You have amnaged to capture the very beginnings of the "blue hour" and I reckon that a few minutes later it would have been impossible to take a picture here hand-held because the light would have been quite insufficient.

    A very well composed image with a lovely mixture of natural and artificial light. The wet pavements and roadway have given some lovely reflections, the light and colours are perfect and the details and sharpness exquisite.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I hope that you and Gladys have a Wonderful Christmas!

    Hi Malgo,

    A very interesting note and a fabulous photograph of the spectacular and lavish decoration inside this church.

    The artworks and the incredible attention to detail are amazing here and you have captured them very well in this lovely picture. A very fine composition with lovely light, fine vibrant colours and excellent details and sharpness.

    Hello Mesut,

    This is a charming shot, so well seen and so well taken too. An excellent "decisive moment" shot, the little boy sitting waiting patiently for his mother, eating what looks like a piece of chocolate cake and examining everything that's happening in the street in front of him!

    A very well composed image with lovely light and natural colours and amazing sharpness considering that this picture must have been taken very quickly.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I wonder how different things are in Turkey compared to Britain? People here have become quite paranoid over recent years and people are very suspcious of anyone taking photographs in a street or a shopping mall. It seems that if you walk around a city here with a big camera, you are immediately thought to be either a terrorist or a paedophile. It's not a nice situation and I would be very, very afraid to try to take a picture of a lone child like this in a street - people could well call the police. It's not a happy situation here.

    Have a Wonderful Christmas!
