    Hi Gurkan
    a shot that grabs attention in the t/nails and is amazingly compelling full size. It is a perfect crop full of colour impact and irresistible intrigue. Like it a lot!

    Hi Daniel
    we all know about the Danube and the fact that it is blue - well this shot is proof of that. It looks so peaceful and idyllic in this fine capture. Simple elements but blissfully beautiful.

    Hi Craig
    I think the W/A lens works wonderfully here, being taken at a low angle it makes the image all the more intimate and effective. Lots of character and detail, plus the inclusion of the tea tray make it so typical of the Turkish hospitality.

    Hello John
    my maternal Great Grandfather was born in Stirling, not in this house I would add, so any shots from this part of Scotland intrigue me and grab my attention. I have only ever been north of the border once in my life and it was long before I did any ancestry tracing. I really should get up and see a bit more of Scotland before you shut the borders ;-P. This place looks wonderful and you have captured its presence and majesty perfectly.

    Hi Ryszard
    a shot that is full of the glow and beauty of a summer sunset. A real sense of the tranquillity that has descended on the City too! You are obviously having a hot summer too Ryszard, a bit cooler here today.

    Hi Malgo
    a beautiful square this and all the more amazing when you compare it now to the old and sad 1945 image. A nice touch with the adults of tomorrow playing and oblivious to the significance of this place and the date. A beautifully moving anniversary tribute Malgo. Wonderful!

    a classic POV that makes this bridge look so attractive and beautifully reflected. So unusual to have arches at 90 degrees to the main span. It looks wonderfully maintained and full of character in this immaculate execution.

    a place I would just love to photograph, it is so amazing and beautiful. This shot does it full justice being an elegant and enticing curve that sweeps us irresistibly into the blue. Awesome!

    Bonjour Denis,

    In the f/g we have an abundance of wild flowers, often considered weeds but, here, they make a colourful and interesting f/g.
    You have composed this well, creating a very attractive Alpine scene, sharp, detailed and with a lovely natural flow from f/g to b/g.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ha! Ha! Nicolas, I just love this holiday photograph! Such a portrait of oblivious relaxation!
    You have composed the whole very precisely so that the incoming, rippling tide follows a diagonal across the frame and the focal lady is strongly placed.

    Hello Ryszard,

    No matter what the temperature is like, your photograph shows the beauty of the sunset. The rich, warm colours light the sky, creating a strong contrast with the silhouetted buildings. I love how the warm, sky colours are picked up in the water linking together the f/g and b/g.

    Hello Rosemary,

    There was an interesting snippet about Namibia in the 'Eight Wonders of the Commonwealth Games'. I immediately thought of you. And, yes, these dunes were filmed, with colours that matched what you have posted, today.
    The top of the dune is most interesting with its sharp edge and its change of tone, signifying the effects of light and shade. There is a lovely hint of ripples in the f/g, maybe suggesting a wind direction.
    The whole has a great sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    I am not surprised this is a World Heritage Site, it is utterly beautiful in its architecture and location. You have very carefully shown its mood by your thoughtful composition, placing the buildings strongly in the frame but showing the gentler side with the stillness of the water and the associated reflections.

    Have a lovely w/e,

    Hello Ana,

    A very beautiful, intimate picture.
    Nature will always take over ruins and try to return them to their natural state.
    Your shot relies strongly on the compositional positioning of the leaf and it works perfectly.

    Hello Maria,

    You have rekindled memories, here!
    I love how you have managed to capture the sense of depth whilst still having a very fine composition. I don't think anyone with vertigo will enjoy this view!
    Your photograph will have convinced people that Zante is well worth a visit.

    Good Morning John,

    Now this is an amazing residence with its plethora of turrets like something from Rapunzel! The fact that it is rising from the undergrowth seems to add links to other fairy stories! I don't think this is accidental, your good composition, with trees diagonally occupying the f/g, has created this allusion.
    I love how the light brings out the colours on the wrap-around ivy, giving a very 3D effect.

    A photograph that elicits a sense of mystery. It's a pity its not open to the public.

    Have a great w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Alain,

    Strasbourg is a beautiful city and you have found another part of it with which to delight us.
    I like your chosen viewpoint which creates a gentle, curved, lead line from the f/g to the attractive half-timbered houses. The canal plays an important part in the ambience of the scene.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)
