    Hello Christian,

    Oh, the ducks are leading the way!
    You have chosen a fine aspect where the canal guides and the converging lines create a good sense of perspective.
    You did well to include the displays of flowers which immediately add a sense of warmth and pride.
    The old buildings back a most intersting b/g.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Malgo,

    Ha! Ha! At a higher magnification, it is possible to quite clearly see the monument!
    What an unusual subject!

    This is a fine aerial shot!
    The clarity is quite amazing.
    It seems as if we are looking through the blue, glass building on the left!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Piotr,

    A very well composed photograph detailing the pasture, the mountains and the deep blue sky.
    I particularly like the light and shadow contrasts and the inclusion of the grazing cattle, to establish a calm mood.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    Mi ci voluto un minuto per orientare me stesso e capire questo filmato, anche se ho subito apprezzato la grafica forte e la composizione bene.
    Che ben visto, fotografia abbastanza inusuale che offre grande impatto.

    Buona giornata,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Takero,

    Such a great shot of shared communal pride and exuberance! The expressions on the faces could not be faked, it is such a wonderful moment to capture the save.

    I love the details of their footwear!
    I've never seen anything quite like it before!

    Have a great day,

    Hello Danos,

    The colours immediately attract, especially the bright red, strongly-placed boat, surrounded by so much blue. It is almost as if it is winning at the start of 'big boat' race!
    I love the clouds, too.
    You couldn't have asked for better examples as a bubbling b/g to the boats.

    Wonderful, crisp exposure!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    I love it!
    It's almost a monochrome pattern of geometric shapes but, then, these warmer colours and animating figures create focal points on a great separation line.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Benny,

    It's difficult to post a photograph that is very different but you have managed it, here. It is a most amazing window in the clouds, revealing something that looks like something from Conan Doyle's 'Lost World'.
    A wonderful sense of depth takes us to the volcano, surrounded by pastel shades. Great!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Benny
    lucky you!
    the window opened up just in time for you to get this sneaky shot. It's like someone blew the wind and clouds out of the way just for you. cool dark and light contrasts too

    Hi Luciano
    haha, is that a man carrying a tripod on the far right, the man wearing the red jacket - that man would be me! :)

    effective composition to have the people on the bottom, tightly squeezed into the frame while the large downpour of water comes crashing down.

    wicked shot!

    Hi Rob
    excellent post. I always say its important to look UP, but also go GET up high and look DOWN! these are views we don't get to see with our naked eye very often.

    what's best here is how the water has turned the bricks into a darker shade of red, i love that. and its funny how there are a few kids spread out laying on the ground. awesome views all around

    Hi Mike
    good idea to include the ol boat in the fg, good to shake it up a bit right? and I like how the ropes are thrown around like somebody just doesn't care.

    The vertical comp works well here because its easily fills up the entire frame, no wasted or dead spaces here.
    I'd love to see this place in person, looks very photogenic.
    excellent shot all around my friend
    cheers

    Hi Lisa
    always a good day when we get to see a new post from ya.

    I love it when we can see the shadows of clouds on the landscape like this, thats always a bonus.
    and I also like those short stone fences which we see here too. As Bev pointed out, I wonder how this place looks in full bloom of autumn. sweet landscape views which go on for a long long while. thanks for this one!

    Hi Daniel
    I didn't even notice it until now, I didn't see the Duomo right away.

    and of course there has to be a FIAT parked on the street side too haha

    there's a cool ambience and mood to your shot, its dark and its light at the same time. The Duomo is acting as if its trying to hide in secret :)

    Hi Gy
    another cool looking take on city life.
    reminds me of taking photos up high in Paris at the Notre Dame. and I know you like black and white, but it would also be fun to see these in the coloured version too.
    effective views because its a mix and mash of old vs new construction. sweet pov

    Hi Malgo
    ah...now I see it! Thanks to the Beta site version, that site is so much better than this one.

    as you say, I'm glad you posted it because I want to see more of this US city, we don't see much of it here on TE.

    and that WS photo with the long bridge, you should post that as a main post, but thats just my opinion.

    funny to see the monument on the right, strange indeed.
    much appreciated city view!
    cheers

    Hi Ryszard
    as much as I love old buildings and history, I also enjoy these more modern styles - especially when you have them IN cities with old buildings. Its a great city contrast from the norm.

    Reading your note, its easy to understand why there are so many modern buildings in Trento.

    love that orange colour splash, thats important for contrasting the blues. nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Ike
    I know its not 100% sharp and clear, but then again not every photo we take can be right! A few of my last posts haven't been sharp. But really, who cares in the big scheme of things, its still a wonderful looking city shot. These are the views that we don't get to see often enough. and looking at your previous shots, the wheel changes colour which is cool too. thanks for this one
