    Hello Michael,
    I always think the only way to take photos from any kind of exhibition is to show the connection between objects and onlookers. So to my mind you have done this exactly the right way. But you also found a perfect background to the two faces, which is not always as easy. The composition is well balanced and the colours are perfectly matching.

    Hello Kasia,
    I admit this was a photo worth waiting for, and a note of great interest too. It's a beautiful place and I love this kind of warm late afternoon light. What I find strange is to see so many persons looking like they were all lined up here mainly to watch the pigeons. Surely there must be more exciting things to do, even in Kurdistan? I almost get the feeling they were all actually watching the Western woman with the big cameras. Only the little kneeling boy was looking in the wrong direction.
    Although I used to be in the media I always had the impression that Erbil and other parts of Iraqi Kurdistan have been generally safe for the last several years. Actually many people in the local parliament and administration, or running hotels and restaurants, have spent years as refugees in Sweden, bringing back - it seems - some ideas of running a country in a more decent way than Saddam Hussein.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Denis,
    A fine composition where I especially like the intensely green trees and the light brown hillside in the foreground. The view towards the village is also very nice. As always this is a perfectly exposed photo with superb colours.

    Hej Trevor,
    Återigen en mycket vacker och trevlig komposition. Den bruna förgrunden kontrasterar fint mot den gröna dalgången och allt är snyggt inramat av träden. Du fångade mycket påpassligt två personer i det övre planet och två nedanför, så att både de dominerande ytorna fylldes upp med människor.
    Det låter på din beskrivning som att två dagar i Gruyères skulle vara bättre än två timmar ;-).
    Trevlig helg,
    Gert

    Hello Elaine,
    This is a captivating photo. maybe not worth dying for, but almost ;-). The girl and the lamb are both incredibly cute and both are posing very nicely, looking straight at you. The mild colours and soft contrasts indicate that you were more or less on a level with the clouds. It actually looks like a cloud in the background to the left.
    Kind regards,

    a beautiful shot this. Love the expression on both the faces here. Immaculate detail and lots of traditional character in this wonderful image. If this is a little lamb then the big ones must be HUGE! :-)

    Hello Ryszard,
    Although we see scattered parts of the famous castle it's really the train that captures most of my attention. I think it would be possible to find out exactly where it is coming from and where it is going by seeing the time it was taken, providing i could consult a Polish train time table. My experience from last summer was that Polish trains were always exactly on time. Their punctuality was amazing. It rarely happens in Sweden.
    As for this photo it's another pleasant composition with fine colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rosemary,
    People at work are nearly always interesting to watch, at least those actually using their hands at traditional crafts or any kind of manual labour. And I couldn't of course resist a title with such an elegant travesty of an old song. (I have yet to see your photo showing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.) This is a good conversion to B&W with a proper blur of the man's busy right hand and a good look at his concentrated face.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John
    I too am a scruff bag when out on a mission. When you lump a haversack of equipment on your back you tend to dress for comfort. Nice avant garde image this and despite your haste one that works perfectly. Camera looks a bit fancy too! Not sure how she manages to look through the viewie with the false lashes on though!

    Excellent and original shot.

    Enjoy the weekend - B.

    Hello Burak,
    Your note makes my mouth water. I would really like to try those stuffed mussels. It's a nice photo too, with lots of colours and local life and a small boy staring at your camera. This time of the year the sunshine and the light clothes come as a nice reminder of better times, at lest for those of us who live in the dark and cold north.

    how weird I am listening to the Fab4 between cleaning and critiquing today, so how apt and irresistible. A wonderfully executed shot this full of character and distinct movement, that works so beautifully in B&W.
