    Hi Ray,

    What a magnificent scene - and a very interesting and informative note to accompany it too.

    The distant mountains with their peaks blanketed in cloud make a fabulous background to the forest below and to the desolate area in the near foregound.

    The clouded sky is magnificent, as are the mountains, the light is lovely and the colours wonderfully vibrant. This picture is not quite so sharp as your recent ones, so I'll bet you'd love to go back here with your new camera to revisit some of these inspiring places. Any chance of doing that sometime?

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Satya - I presume that the men go out to sea in the boats we see in the distance. I cannot imagine how they manage to catch such huge fish in such vessels. What a sight it must be to witness them hauling in the catch! I can see from your shot that alongside the weariness brought on by hard physical labour there is also joy and satisfaction.

    A superb DL shot and one that brings this quote to mind

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Another fine photo of the wet street in Gdansk.The details are lovely and the colours are fantastic. There are some strange shadow around the legs of people, and the plastic bags the nearest man is carrying. They seem strange, considering this was taken at 1/200 seconds.
    Best regards,

    Hello Krzysztof - I think that the weather was a good friend here as the aftermath of the rain has provided your shot with lovely atmospheric light and colour. The soft reflections on the wet pavement are lovely.

    A classic composition given extra oomph through the mood. Nicely managed too!

    Hello Ourania,

    What a fabulously striking, "punchy" and appealing photograph this is!

    You have "homed in" on the helm and stern of this boat perfectly to produce a lovely and closely cropped image full of impact. The strong sunlight and the vibrant colours add to the impact but the reflections of the little waves at the bottom of the image add a lovely gentle softness to it which is quite in contrast to the strong lines and colours in its upper part.

    A beautiful photograph which is also technically perfect with spot-on exposure and stunning sharpness and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Neyvan - An excellent vertical composition with a wonderfully colourful FG contrasting with the softer tones of the buildings and punchy blues of sky and sea. How fortunate you were to see this under clear skies and sunshine.

    An engaging scene.

    Impressive work John. The details are finely rendered from front to back. The light has revealed the soft reds in the old stonework and given the ruins form and volume. I do like the way the composition moves out from the urn on a plinth which acts as a solid anchor in the FG RH corner. The figure tells a little story and makes it easy for me to imagine myself having a wander through the peaceful setting.

    Warm regards

    Bonjour Denis,

    A beautifully simple composition showing this old abandoned house, surrounded by wild brambles, perfectly depicted against a lovely sky. The light and colours are beautiful, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness, as always, are superb. Your workshop picture, taken a little closer, gives us a more intimate view of this ruined building.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. Did you pick any of the brambles to take home to make jam or just to eat? Here brambles are quite expensive to buy in supermarkets but if you can pick your own in the countryside, they're free!

    P.P.S. I wonder if this house has just become ruined or if the landowner has removed the roof? Here in Britain, if an old house like this becomes unoccupied, the landowner might remove the roof because, if he does this, he no longer is required to pay taxes on the house. I wonder if the same thing is true in France?

    Hello Dorian - This shot jumps out of the screen. The contrasting colours highlight the tilted form of the building's upper structure which looks fabulous against the blue hour sky. An impressive and fascinating study.

    Ciao Andrea ,
    This is an excellent idea to present us a close framing , with only a part of the famous megalithic monument . I like the soft light and the beautiful détails in the stone . The presence of the people give a sense of scale .

    Ciao Carlo,
    la statua e' originale ed intrigante. La prospettiva dinamica e lo sfondo geometrico, di colori molto attraenti e contrastanti fanno una composizione meravigliosa. Anche se a certi punti le ombre sono un po' troppo forti, la nitidezza e' ottima e l' impatto dell' immagine istantaneo e gradevole. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Hi Will
    The man does add a lot to the scene, bst to be honest, even without him I would find this shot irresistible. The choppy water. The incredible sky and a great idea in black and white would alone be beautiful. I like that there appears to be a huge eye one the clouds above the man and seemingly looking right at him! The sky over the far mountains looks very angry and very photogenic, its like looking at A scene that Saurons tower would fit perfectly in.
    Cheers
    Noel
