    Caro Giovanni

    A picture of four seasons in one day! It speaks a thousand words. Great choice the vertical frame (my favourite) excellent control over the sky and light, and stunning colour, despite the "unsettled" light. This place is stunning, I can see why it's a favourite.

    See you soon, you wizened old smout

    Holy moly, talk about decisive moment and probably the funniest photo I've seen in your gallery. Looking at this, maybe I'm just not ready for Trim yet. Actually, I'm trying to work out whose tongue that is and a really creepy part of me hopes it's not the goat's. The look on the face of the bloke in the background is priceless. He wants to look away but - like the rest of us - he just can't. Excellent, well-timed, sharp image, with superb, farting colours. This photo made my day.

    Hello György.
    The elderly man and hos surroundings are worth a smiley for the street atmosphere, but your PP should be worth another smiley. I have occasionally eradicated disturbing people, but this looks like a more complicated case than I would have liked to try.

    Hello Muhammad,

    This looks so very futuristic!

    You have used the lines so well to act as guides and what a great reflection you have captured in the still water. I feel that the focal 'tower' would have been even stronger just a little to the right but, maybe that was not possible to achieve.
    Overall the exposure is sharp and the colours natural.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    You do surprise me about the number of tulips!
    There seem to be lots, here.
    Why are there fewer each year?
    Is it because countries are planting their own tulips ... I'm sure it's not because they are less popular flowers.

    This is a fine shot of the tulip rows, all converging to an off-centre point. The effect of so many white flowers suggests a blanket of snow!
    Your composition is very effective in accentuating the vast flatness of the area. I love it!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ally,

    I feel like an intruder, peeping over the walls of a private residence but loving every pixel of this inner sanctum!
    It's a fine sharp exposure.
    It works even better for having a shadowyy f/g, for this gives an amazing contrast with the colourful, busy interior!

    Thanks for sharing this,

    Hello Stephen,

    This looks so different from the busy cities that are usually posted from India. Here, the wide street appears almost deserted!
    It's a fine shot, revealing the characteristics of the buildings, with a great aspect, creating a sense of depth and perspective.

    Hello Jean,

    It's a busy scene with so many yachts moored cheek-by-jowl in the marina. However, the clarity of the diagonal f/g prevents the artist becoming lost in the melee.
    I thought, at first, he was following a plan, trying to find where his boat was moored!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Noel,

    I read your notes with interest for the de Lacy family is renown in my area of N.E. Lancashire. I researched the name on the Internet and found that there were two branches of the family who came over with William the Conqueror; the northern branch owning land around Blackburnshire and the southern branch moving to ownership in Ireland.

    I like how you have used the gold cross as a feature in the f/g for it is very effective. Maybe, if you had been able to get just a little lower, the cross would have been even prouder and competed more successfully with the tower; but, then, I suppose, the railings would have masked more of the castle! It's a tough one!
    What is clear, though is the quality of the exposure, the scene is sharp and the colours well saturated. What a difference good light can give us!!!

    Have a lovely day and thank you for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Alexandre,

    This is a truly spectacular and beautiful waterfall and you have composed it extremely well in your photograph.
    I like how the sunlight is brightening it and illuminating the yellowy/green rock face nearby.
    I can almost hear the crash of the water as it descends into the pool!

    Bonjour Serge,

    I never managed to visit this chateau when we were staying in the Loire but it has been one of my regrets. It is a very beautiful chateau and looks to be in a fine state of preservation. From your photograph, the building appears to be on stone stilts, as it is surrounded by water.
    It would appear to have been quite a breezy day, as the water's surface is quite rippled but the light is good enough to create long reflections over the water.
    Lovely, sharp images.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    I like how you have used the Millennium Bridge, with its modernism, to lead to the historically contrasting St. Paul's.
    It's a nice combination of new and old.
    Then, of course, the two heavily clad figures explain the weather conditions! They are important to the whole for composition and to confirm the dull, weather conditions.

    You are a stoic but, I've come to realise that many photographers are!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    You are so good at finding these narrow, winding streets, bordered by whitewashed, terraced houses and showing fine examples of wrought iron work.
    You have chosen an excellent viewpoint, using the curve of the textured road to guide to a strong vanishing point.
    As always, the exposure is pin sharp.

    Hello Ney,

    This is stunning!
    Your upward viewpoint has captured the effect of the water cascading over the precipice and tumbling down the interspersed, rock shelves.
    I'm so glad that you used a fast shutter speed. It captures the reality so much more convincingly than a slow shutter speed.

    Have a great day,

    Hello Gyorgy,

    I like this as much as any of your photograph. The triangular b/g full of geometric shapes is most interesting and contrasts well with the disturbed water. Together, they make an excellent setting for the focal, lonesome figure.
    To be pedantic, I would have liked her slightly more to the right but, to be truthful, it's not that important!

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Lars,

    It's amazing how well these structures survive and now, they are the iconic symbol of the Dutch!

    You timed your photograph well, so that the passing boat creates a useful wake, to act as a most effective, diagonal guide into the scene. There is a lot of activity in the f/g but that just adds interest and takes nothing away from the mighty windmills.
    It would seem that you were able to escape from the rain for a short time, for the sky looks blue and cloudless.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    It is, indeed, a very moody atmosphere with these lighting conditions. The low clouds are emphsising the dark greens of the moorland, with just faint splashes of paler hues. But those clouds are massive and very dominant!
    I love the wonderful composition of rippling, tumbling water, guiding to the smooth, deepness of the loch.

    Living on the edges of the moorland, myself, I'm always drawn to the wild beauty of such places.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Had to laugh at your comment on Len's Blackpool photograph. I almost posted one on TE myself but knew it would upset you!

    What a beautiful surprise, I'm very chuffed. Something real eerie about that beautiful blue sky. Love the vivid colours and the luminous quality to the image. And of course your subject, the mysterious Trim. Hopefully I'll see it one day, but in the meantime, I thank you for the amazing tour guide you were, showing me a side to this magical country I'd not seen before. As I said at the time, if the tour had stopped at Henrietta Street, I'd Have been thrilled. But it was so much more. I haven't laughed so much in years, you're a cracker!

    Hello Beatrice

    The wet pavements are the making of this photograph as far as I'm concerned. Which is why I'm sure you accentuated the fact by showing so much of the foreground. It's given an unusual slightly downward-looking viewpoint which seems to echo the downbeat mood.

    Regards
