    Bonsoir Serge,

    What a pretty house!
    The owner definitely likes flowers and is successful with them! I could just imagine sitting on that rocking chair on the veranda, watching the world go by!!
    It's a very well composed photograph, with a fine lead and a multitude of bright colours!

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,
    This is a fascinating sculpture, especially when placed in an environment like this. Although the woman is standing some distance away she still helps us to get an idea of the dimensions of the sculpture.
    I had no idea of this work but your note made me curious. Indeed the sculptor was from Poland and he made a lot of equally fascinating works. His name was Igor Mitoraj:

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This is such a beautiful scene and what contrasts you have been able to capture in this one shot!
    You were right to choose the vertical format for there is such strength in the many vertical features, from the tall rosebay willow herb, via the imposing bell tower, to the snowy heights of the mountains. (It is amazing that snow still exists in the summertime. I suppose it is a testament to the height of those mountains!)
    The f/g clarity contrasts with the slight haziness of the b/g and emphasises the sense of depth.

    I like this very much.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    The photograph makes a perfect ending, in conjunction with your other photographs, as it shows the light slowly fading and the artificial lights becoming gradually brighter. It is almost like time-lapse photography. It does bring the city to life in a completely different way.

    I thought that you would have needed a slower shutter speed and a tripod. Did you rest the camera on something very stable? The sharpness is very good!

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    Taking photographs of birds in flight is extremely difficult and, I'm sure, capturing two, like this, is more than doubly difficult!
    I'm surprised that you have not posted this earlier!

    Your crop gives the impression that the birds are engaged in a sort of aerial dance, as they touch wings before swooping back towards the ground.
    The sky is grey, testifying to the conditions that you describe, but that in no way reduces the quality of the capture of the birds, which are colourful and elegant, it just creates a neutral backcloth.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You are so alert to the changes in the seasons and the possibilities of different aspects. This is a lovely shot and what makes it so special is that it is impossible to differentiate the reeds from their reflections. That gives the photograph a very 3D impression.
    Well seen and well photographed.

    Have a great w/e,

    Hello Craig,

    The dark rivulet makes a really interesting, tortuous lead into the scene where I noticed the each house has its own b/g mountain!
    As you say, the weather was glorious and that comes over in the shot. The grassland is lit up, with an unusual patchwork of snow pockets. The light and shadows show up extremely well on the mountains, helping to define the ridges and gullies.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)
    I found it so interesting seeing Malgo's photograph from exactly the same spot as your last post! It did reveal the changes in the different seasons quite markedly.

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    Never mind saving a peso, I just love the situation! It looks as if the characters are living out on the street, or they are getting themselves comfortable to watch a parade! I just couldn't imagine seeing a situation like this in the U.K., well not in recent times!!
    A great viewpoint enables us to get a very good overview, to appreciate the composition, the textures and, most of all, the characters.

    Have a lovely w/e,

    Hello Christian,
    What a lovely old bridge with plants growing out from between the stones. Almost as good as the bridge itself is the green kayak with two passengers inside the oval created by one of the vaults and its reflection. A person stepping ashore in the shade creates some interest in the nearest area too. The photo has a very nice atmosphere of a lazy day in summer.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ana,
    It's a nice river beach and the rather dead looking tree is still attractive and you placed it well. But the red "boat" in the green water is certainly what makes this photo really eye-catching. That girl was like sent to you from above to cheer up this view.

    Hello Lars,
    It's a very impressive building and I can see why the tower has become an icon of Canada. It's a bit like the Big Ben of London. You had to go some distance to get all of this huge complex inside the frame, but that had the advantage of giving you a nice green foreground.

    Hello Claude,
    It's not just the faces that are amazing. At least one of the hairstyles is really remarkable. They don't seem to be posing so I assume these are snapshots. Well spotted and well captured in that case.

    Hello John,
    this is a magnificent photo and I can assure you that I would be perfectly happy with the sharpness if I could ever take a picture like this. These birds are just perfectly captured. I can imagine they are about to do a "high five", and my thoughts also go to the Sixtine Chapel and the fresco showing God creating Adam. The dull weather actually gave you a perfect background too.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    The lower part of the photo, up to just behind the two buildings, looks like anywhere from where I grew up, but we really didn't have any such mountains in my childhood area. The air looks fresh and crisp and the colors are bright and beautiful, and I fully understand that it was hard to find a crowd of people to adorn the photo in this part of the world.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
