    Hello Malgo,

    Another stunning bridge.
    You have had so many to choose from!
    The colours and details are superb.
    To me, the bridge and its reflection appears like a huge crocodile mouth wide open, displaying its teeth!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Merhaba Korkut,

    What a great shot!
    The composition is perfect!
    Those textured lead lines take us immediately to the the two focal figures on the the thirds line, their postures suggesting something from a dance drama.
    The oof ship, adds to the sense of drama.
    Excellent!

    Kind regards,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Paul,

    I don't know why but we more likely see up streets rather than down.
    For that reason, this is an unusual view.
    You are right, it is most picturesque and I love that we can see the tops of the roofs as well as appreciating the very steep incline of the street. The hanging baskets add to the beauty, whilst the inclusion of the figure supplies human interest.

    My warm regards,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Gyorgy,

    Certainly nothing special but it is interesting for us th peruse your view of the street.
    I have never seen cardboard left on a trolley before, presumably waiting to be collected by a refuse wagon.
    The figure is striding out meaningfully whilst another is emerging from the chemist shop.
    The details are well collected and easy for us to peruse.

    My warm regards,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Serge,

    You must have loved this region.
    It is such an attractive area.
    The vineyards make a fresh, green f/ g, the perfect introduction to the church on the hill.
    The scene is very well composed and has excellent clarity.

    Hello Stephen,

    You have selected a fine viewpoint to show the yard, statue and aspect of the town hall in a most attractive way.
    I like the tiled floor details and the focal feature of the fountain. The red flowers add colour and guide towards the staircase and it's arched roof supports.
    The whole scene is well composed.

    Hello Rob,
    This is an unexpected photo from downtown Manhattan, but I see it's part of Central Park where anything could happen. I like the bright light and the bodies lying at different engles. It rather makes me think of a scene from a movie.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS I will be largely off TE for a week.

    Hello Ali,
    This is a very nice view of the town. I like how they light is falling so neatly on the centre, as if a spot-light of a theatre had been directed on it. The town is nicely surrounded by shady areas. It is a well composed photo in three horizontal sections.
    Kind regards,

    Ciao caro Luciano.

    Three very useful photographs to illustrate the location and the details of swan and nest.
    The swan must feel like quite a celebrity, now!
    No wonder she is exhausted.
    I think my favourite shot is the one with the two photographers though I like every one of your shots.
    The one I mention gives excellent details of both the nest and the exceptional interst shown by the photographers.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    It's a nice church situated next to a beautiful small park. The diagonals surrounding the lawn give a good structure to the composition. The colours are excellent.

    Bonjour Denis,

    I am not surprised that you chose this angle for your photograph for it uses the colourful building (with its sign) to give f/g attention and create a most effective lead to a strong vanishing point.
    The light is glorious, illuminating the scene well and it is very well controlled.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    There is a certain sense of security, of permanence, when we realise that a bridge, so beautiful, so useful, so well maintained, has served Bruges for over 700 years. It makes a fine focal point, its reflections creating circles, like tunnels into the b/g.
    The parallel street is similarly interesting but with completely different colours and textures; together, they explain a lot about the beauty of Bruges and have been expertly captured by your lens.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Malgo,
    It's a nice building, at least very big. I like most of all the street going straight through it. Isn't Banco Santander one of the deeply troubled European banks? I hope the building will stand even if the bank collapses. The workshops are very different this time, but very nice.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kari,
    It's a nice composition of the old style train entering the tunnel. I hope the persons taking photos didn't lean too far out of the windows. You got a better photo than any of them, but maybe someone behind you got an even better.

    Hello Rob,

    A great duo of shots which perfectly complement each other; the first shows the context, reveals the watching crowd and the clever use of 'equipment'!
    The second draws us in close, as if we are a step nearer, and can appreciate the action as well as the music!

    It's a fine composition with the bicycles by the tree and the village with the church seen in the distance. The tree's shape fits the photo well and the colours are nicely intense.

    Hello Ike,

    You have incorporated three icons of Edinburgh in your elevated shot and all are well situated within the frame.
    I do like how you have composed the f/g and insinuated two opposing diagonals to carry the eyes to either side of the frame.
    The poster is a useful tool, especially for anyone who has yet to visit the city, and makes a good f/g for the contrasting autumnal vegetation beyond.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Lars,

    Though you have two photographs of the same building, they are very different in emphasis.
    The first shows the structure and location of the pier whilst the second is very much about going on the pier, with guide lines and a sign to encourage us inwards.
    Were these figures some of your students, eager to find what is at the end of the pier?

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You are an early riser to catch such scenes!
    The light is lovely and I love that the snowy peak is just in sunlight!
    The f/g reveals interesting details, from the reticulated fence, with its diamond ice-drops, to the long line of sun-gilded trees.
    It's a delightful, early-morning, spring scene.

    My warm regards,
