    Hello Takero,
    Look at the baby sucking its thumb like a human baby. It's such a charming photo and so well taken with perfect sharpness on the baby's face and beautiful colours.

    Hello Craig

    Nissan Figaro (not old, just retro-styled). I expect plenty of people have already identified it for you. It's certainly not a Metropolitan, nor an "ancient Morris"! I've been to Cobh (sailing in Cork Week) on several occasions, but don't remember seeing houses falling over quite so spectacularly! Your wide-angle has certainly offered a new perspective on a familiar subject.

    Regards

    Will

    Ha! Ha! Ryszard, if only you could have persuaded the swans to go in the other direction, they would have been the perfect lead up the river. As it is, they are still useful as a focal point and the river leads very well towards the attractive, long, imposing buildings.
    The edgings of snow and ice reveal the coolness of the weather and link well with the icy coloured sky.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Oh, yes, Lars, a fine title to accompany an equally fine photograph.
    Who can predict what will happen in the next few months!
    We were surprised by Brexit; the U.S.A was equally surprised by the presidential choice!

    Your photograph, though, leaves no doubts; it is incredibly sharp, works well as a symmetrical composition and uses the steps as an effective intro.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Bev

    I don't know why, but I find the image quite amusing: maybe it's the idea of all those geese waddling up the hill. Pretty effective depth of field: sadly, with the EXIF data on TE being up the creek for well over a year now (!), it's not possible to know what aperture you were using.

    Regards

    This is a fine photograph which details the many geometric shapes and patterns whilst also, playing effectively with the light and shadows.

    Hello Silvio

    Very nice aerial perspective here: the sun-tinged mist is the making of the shot. Can make out much of your note, however! The TE gremlins have struck again...

    Hola Angel,

    This was a well taken opportunity to give an interesting, shapely, natural border to your photograph.
    Even from the thumbnail it looked good.
    You have handled the lighting well with the strong contrasts between f/g and b/g.

    My warm regards,

    This is certainly a colourful display, and almost qualifies as a still life. Peppers in the foreground for sure, but I'm not sure what the creamy-white ones are. Any idea?

    Hello Pavle,
    It's a very nice photo of the narrow road winding through a beautiful scenery. You balanced the composition well and used the long road nicely to create good depth. The colours and sharpness are excellent.

    Hello Alexandre,
    This car is not just eco-friendly. It is also fun to watch and looks like an installation by an inventive artist. Even traditional car lovers will enjoy its stylish design. This was a photo that had to be taken, regardless of the light condition. You handled it very well, by the way.

    Hello Pedro,
    This is a lovely photo of a very attractive coastline. There are many beautiful tones of blue and green and the parallel hills are nicely lined up and getting gradually more hazy. There seems to be a beautiful beach on the right side and maybe there are others further away. It's a well composed photo with great luminosity.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Iain,
    I have always had a longing for Ethiopia, but I fear I am getting too old for the heat and the hassel. I will probably never go there, and never see this with my own eyes. It's quite an unusual photo for TE, and without your detailed description it could have been puzzling. The sulphur rocks look like some kind of modern art and they match the colours of the smiling soldier's uniform amazingly well.
    Personally I am not against "crop, shop or saturation". Cropping a photo at the right place could make an average picture much more interesting and attractive, in fact create an entirely different picture. After all, you did crop out the tourists.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Kari,
    It's a very nice early morning view of the small port and the houses on the hillside. The sun has hit a glass facade or maybe some large windows at exactly the right angle. I like the colours and I also like the view of the boats, that seem very ordinary and "real", not belonging to some millionaire playboys.
    Best regards,

    This traditional way of drying vegetables and fruits and showing them to the customers make them tempting to photographers and also for those preparing dinner. It's a very colourful and nice photo.
