    Hello Chris,
    This may not be specific for Iraklion, but it's in any case a fine sunset with very nicely captured warm waves and a pleasant blueish haze around the distant hills.

    Hello John,

    This is quite a different photograph from your normal themes. Having said that, it is always interesting to capture new subjects.
    The light, and the spray breaking over the bows, confirms your notes. Despite the problems, you have still captured a fine shot of the tall mast ship; it is sharp and shows up remarkably well against the blue/grey b/g.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ha! Ha! Serge you are challenging John for sights of Bruges!
    It is a wonderful town for photographers and you have chosen an excellent location to reveal the character of the old buildings and the closeness of the canals.
    How lovely to travel along the canal and enjoy the sights and smells of this lovely Belgian town. I see that it is also possible to walk along the canal-side, too.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    You have captured a most amazing rain storm!
    The torrents can be seen tumbling from the sky, drenching the buildings and the slopes.
    The storm is wonderfully ringed by dark mountains and clouds, forcing attention right into the centre!
    A superb weather watch photograph.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Christiane,

    This is a wonderful combination of modern buildings, composed in such a way that the different patterns are emphasised and the light adds different colours and reflections to those that are similar.
    Though the photograph is flat, you have been able to reveal the curves and contours that are present in reality.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Dear Paja

    This old cart would have worked very hard in its day. Now it sits in a garden in the sun, adorned with flowers. Beautiful light and I like very much the different angles. Excellent shot.

    Ciao Stephen

    Did you know that there is a Sans Souci here in Sydney? It means "no tears". I think it would mean the same in Germany as it is a Latin phrase. Anyway, a lovely wide angle scene. beautiful sharpness, warm light and dappled shade. Your note is informative and interesting. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day.

    Now that is some serious fog. Not very summery, but certainly still compelling photographically speaking. I love the greys and silvers. My favourite element is the ripples in the left foreground which remind me of a fish's gills. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

    Have a great week

    When I first saw this, my first thought was, "I bet Ourania would love this". True enough, I see her critique and she does. A lovely abstract image that reminds me of a Chinese garden. The vivid hues immediately draw the eye into the frame and the stunning silvery light is the icing on the cake. Excellent work.

    Hello dear Birthday Boy Lars

    I hope you are having a wonderful birthday and are being spoiled by your loved ones.

    This great photo reminds me a lot of the photos of Andew Lipsett who collected photos of American State Houses. I think he would find this interesting, as I do. Excellent wide angle view, great colours and sharpness. A delightful and interesting photos. Amazing how such a bright, dynamic place can be the scene of such tragedy.

    Wow what a place. You have photographed it so expertly and so artistically. I love the perspective and graphism here. The choice of the vertical frame was a masterstroke as was the control of light and reflections on the pavement.

    Ciao Abmdsudi

    This is a superb portrait. I love the tight cropping, the flawless light on the face and the remarkable eye contact. Stunning colours and textures, particularly in respect of the skin textures.

    You are so fearless getting up so close and personal. I would be so afraid of being told to get lost by them. Not only do they not tell you that, they embrace you! The rapport between photographer and subject is patent

    Warmest wishes and thanks for sharing

    Hello Daniel,
    I think I passed this city with the train, maybe even twice, but I didn't stop here. It could have been another nice experience, which this photo indicates. It looks like the kind of narrow alley which I like to explore. I like the glimpse of the church tower above the brick roof.
    Best regards,

    It's a well composed photo where you used the contrasts of architectural styles and colours very well. There is also a maze of diagonal lines that make the composition quite dynamic.

    Hello Malgo,
    Maybe the strange jar is actually a huge chimney to let out the smoke from the kitchen? Your description of Kazakh food doesn't sound so very appetizing. Even what I had in Afghanistan seems to have been much better, mainly mutton and probably no horse meat. I honestly guess Italian food is better than Kazakh. Like John I wonder why this place is so empty. Was it well known that the food was no good?
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    This is a very different and very cheerful photo. Doesn't the man's outfit resemble Theresa May's shoes? ;-) I suppose these people had an alternative option to stay inside in case of bad weather, but it hadn't been half as fun (and probably too noisy). Sometimes you carefully plan to take photos from a certain place and then you stumble into something much nicer and more colourful. You never know what to expect on a photo safari.
    Kind regards,

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    Accidents can often be the discovery of something new!
    I love this accident!
    The red light adds that sense of science fiction to your wonderful exploration of the stars!
    It's a stunning shot! There is such a temptation to say, "Good Heavens! What a shot!"

    There is definitely a trail from the sky to the land which adds to the whole supernatural effect!

    Thanks for sharing this,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ryszard,
    Somehow this building looks far too elegant for its purpose, but hot mineral water must have been serious business in the older days. It's a good photo with fine symmetry and very well handled light, accompanied by an interesting note.
