    Hello Ryszard,

    You have hit the title perfectly!
    How observant of you to recognise the connection!
    You have captured the fleeting moment with excellent clarity and fine composition.

    Have a great day,

    Hello Bev,
    Like many old forts this looks like an exciting place to visit, and maybe the fact that it is only accessible parts of the day makes it even more inspiring. It's not very large but it looks impressive, partly perhaps thanks to the dark rocks surrounding it and separating it from the sea and the sandy beach. I like the few but mild colours and the inclusion of a few persons exploring the rocks.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Bonjour Christiane,

    This is a beautiful, tranquil setting, with verdant surroundings of grass and trees, snuggling the buildings in a warm, protective way. The whole is artistically reflected in the river, doubling the effect.
    A very well judged composition, captured with a fine, sharp exposure.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Craig,

    Before I read your notes, I thought what a contrast between this and your last street scene! The only similarity is the street!
    Though you didn't have long to compose it, instinct kicked in, and you have a great shot; strong guide lines, light and shade well addressed, fine clarity and, best of all, a great link between the f/g and b/g by way of the striking lady and the tall memorial.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)
    Have a great time in the Big Apple and your meeting with Brenda.

    Hello Christiane,
    The green mountain and the small village below is a beautiful view and it's perfectly reflected in the river, creating a nicely rounded shape. It's a generally very appealing photo with lovely clarity.

    Hello Jorge,

    This looks like a large as well as important site. I never cease to be surprised by the skills of the ancient builders!

    What surprises me more is why did they not attempt a rebuild after the earthquake! The materials were all there and, presumably, the trade links. Maybe the people thought the place was cursed when destroyed in such a way.

    Thank you for sharing these interesting and well composed photographs.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    Your triptych is a work of art in its own right, uniting the colours and the sensual movements so well in a very modernistic way.
    You have achieved excellent clarity as well as a flow of movement.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ryszard,
    What could this symbolize that three persons are walking to the left and three to the right? And is anyone barefoot? A great, simple photo with fantastic reflections. Very well seen and timed.

    Hello Benny,
    The private castle would be too big for me (too large areas to keep clean), but there couldn't be much problems with noisy neighbours. But who cares about castles when the scenery is so green and beautiful and there is such bright farming equipment in the foreground?

    Hello Craig,
    2-3 seconds, that's normal for most of my street-shots ;-). You managed to squeeze a lot into this picture and I suppose it tells us more about Portugal than the gritty last photo, but I find the last one more interesting and personal. Of course the woman in black is nicer to watch than the old man, but...
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    This was a well spotted moment. Some human action (and inaction), plain colours and a perfect background. It's very simple but eye-catching.

    Hello Ike,
    You observed something remarkable here. The movement of the water, the black rocks and the orange grass have formed a very attractive view. It can be seen as a close study of nature but it also comes close to an abstract composition. There is a lot of beauty in this kind of simplicity.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    This is a delightful Dutch view where the windmill plays a fairly discrete role in the background. The lovely blue canal balances the green lawn very nicely but most impressive is that among the six or seven boats I can see I can't find two alike. There is such a great variety of shapes and sizes, which makes the photo very lively. The small boat to the right also indicates movement. I like the diagonal perspective, which also gives a rhythm to the photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
