    Hello Beverley,
    'Majestic' is indeed a word we can use to describe this hotel. The interior is likely to be correspondingly.
    Interesting story about the clock that is ahead of time. We should also apply this system in Belgium. Not intended for the passengers. But for the clocks of the staff of the railway company. Trains are generally in delay here. At least if they run on a day without a strike ...
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Piotr,
    A wonderful setting for this monastery!
    The vineyards in the foreground provide a pleasant sight and contrast strongly with the arid plain we see in the distance while the snowcapped peaks of the Ararat are a most impressive view.
    A stunning landscape presented with excellent depth.

    Did this not remind you a little of Kings Canyon? What an impressive view, a stunning depth of field and wonderful chromatic rendering. The contrast of red rock and greenery is spectacular and you chose well with the landscape format and wide-angle. Excellent work, and yes, sometimes guided tours are good. They certainly have their place.

    Caro Silvio

    Non lo so se o la tua modella o i fiori sono i piu belli. Ma tutte le due insieme ha creato un capolavoro. Bellissima la struttura e senso di movimento. La resa cromatica e' stupenda, come questa meraviglia di Castelluccio.

    Just like a French Impressionist's painting, this reflections is a feast for the eyes. Wonderful golden light, perfectly rendered reflections and a lovely hint of red tones to provide that great contrast. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

    Minus 15 degrees! Oh dear that is cold. I do not think I have ever witnessed cold like that. Your photo is excellent reportage, capturing the snow and the mist so well. The textures are delightful. excellent work, thanks for sharing, have a beautiful evening.

    Dear Abmdsudi

    You know, if I hadn't seen that this was taken in China, I'd have believed you were in Ireland or Scotland. The intense green, the hand-hewn stone walls and the undulating hills immediately made me think you'd visited the Highlands. What a magnificent scene. The winding road seems to mirror the winding stream. The movement in the FG grass gives us a sense of a gentle breeze and the lack of humans gives a very real sense of isolation and tranquillity, so often a theme in your landscape photos. And such a juxtaposition with your bustling, hectic people photos. Excellent work as usual, thanks for your note, always informative and entertaining.

    Warmest wishes

    Querido Angel

    I hope you and your wife had a relaxing vacation. I was curious as to what this was when I saw the thumbnail. It is a delightful window and balcony scene, so characteristic of your country and also those of Italy and Greece. beautiful vivid colours and textures. You have done well to notice this beautiful scene and have photographed it admirably.

    Ciao Kari

    Gee you get around: Iceland one day, Jersey the next. And now Norway. I look forward to seeing your photos from there. Will you see the Northern Lights or is it not the season for it? Anyway, this little cutie is lovely. You've made a very nice close up and she seems to be modelling for you, giving you her best selfie duck-face. Or should that be cow-face? Anyway, nice colours and textures. A delightful shot.

    Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening

    What an unusual architecture. I love the blue and white ceramics, so reminiscent of those we see in Portugal. The background Blue Hour adds to the colour theme and the image is sharp and without noise. Excellent work.

    Caro Carluccio

    La prima volta che ho visto questa panorama era nella foto di Maurizio. Ogni volta che vederla, i miei pensieri sono gli stessi: che meraviglia. Hai ottenuto un grande bel POV, con ottima nitidezza e profondita' di campo. I colori acquamarini del mediterraneo sono la ciliegina sulla torta. Che paradise, che foto. Complimenti.

    Carissimo Giovanni

    When I initially saw this in thumbnail, I thought it was a photo of a painting. But upon enlarging it, it became evident what a work of art this is. Your post-processing here is exquisite. I've never understood layers, but the skill and subtlety of the light here really is impressive. The colours and definition are jaw-dropping. The image is of superb quality. There is only one Obsessive Compulsive gripe I have, and that is I would have cloned out the globs of chewing gum in the foreground. But that is nit-picking, I blame the hormones. This is a thoroughly magnificent photo, and one of the best portraits I've seen on TE in a long time. Congratulations.

    Ciao dear Ourania

    What a sweet moment you have captured. Their red costumes certainly stand out and I love the details in the embroidery you have captured. The little man on the left is blurred. Purists would critique this, but I love it as it gives a reality to the photo and a sense of movement: since when do 9 year olds stand still? This is an international thing and I love seeing it. You have captured their vibrance and zest for life perfectly. I love it and it made me smile.

    And here was me thinking the Golden Gate was actually golden. It should be the Red Gate. This close up is very artistic. I love the textures of the vertical cables, amplified nicely by your choice of vertical frame. A crisp, clean image with wonderful geometry and blocks of colour. A stunning visual treat, thanks for sharing.

    Hello Ourania,
    The visit of the sailboat will hopefully have been a pleasant change from the dull life in a refugee camp. A day in the real life to get to know a bit better the life and the culture in their new home country.
    A very beautiful picture of everyday life that you've composed well. On the foreground the long shadows fill the empty space.

    Hello Ricardo,
    The most surprising thing for me is the red colour of the earth. Probably very fertile soil.
    Beautiful with the sharp dividing line between this soil and the abundant greenery.
    This picture is attractively composed with the branches of the tree hanging over the roof of the house.
    Perfect sharpness and clarity.
    A very pretty picture of the Brazilian countryside.

    The wide road with the beautiful whitewashed houses leads us well to the remains of the abbey.
    Apart of the view of the abbey, I would never have guessed that this is a picture from Scotland. I admit that I don't know Scotland at all.

    Bonjour Serge,
    Vous avez créé un énorme effet dramatique dans le ciel. Selon mon opinion personnelle, l'effet serait plus grand si les nuages seraient en noir et blanc.
    La place et les bâtiments environnants semblent très beaux. Malgré la pluie, une ville magnifique.
