    Hi Lucas
    Love the clarity, angled light and deep polarised blue sky while retaining good level of colour, depth and detail with lots more supporting props around leading
    to point of focus on the tower. A pure joy to look at - easy on the eye compo pleasantly captured, Congrats

    Hi Kari
    so what do we have here?
    you know what I think about when I see this? I think about how many bugs and flies there are! alot right? It must be aweful at some times of the year.

    Personally, i'm not one for such cottages out in the forest, but thats just me.

    as for the photo though, thats a different story. I've been enjoying this series as you show us very rural areas most people do not venture out into. another fine shot showcasing the landscape.
    cheers

    Hi Carlo
    how could I have possibly missed this one in your gallery?
    there are so many attractive features to point out, the colours of the buildings, the clouds, the blue sky, the lime green grass, the statue...its beautiful.
    perfect exposure all the way

    as much as I like this man's style with his shoes and his casual stance, its on a sad occasion that we view this photo.
    a Proud shop keeper he is. well documented scene, culture and history wrapped up into one.

    Hi Danos
    for me, this shot is all about the blue boat on the left.
    really like its strong angular lines and hot it almost has that 3D like effect. and even though its blue like the water, it still stands out well.
    fine post for its colors, exposure and boats

    Hi Murat
    For me, a fine image in there no doubt more relaxing and pleasant to go shopping here with the people there filling the frame along the lines of the shop. A very strong, colourful and interesting image. The woman's eye connection really does add to the image....
    A fine capture of street life. Well done.

    Ciao cara Lisa,

    A fine tribute to the people of central Italy who have suffered so dreadfully in the past few days from this tragic earthquake which has taken so many lives, ruined so many others and destroyed some of their most historic and beautiful buildings and treasures.

    Geez, I love this spindly fellow with his simple round spectacles, smiling at you as he proudly shows off the bounteous display of fabulous Italian foodstuffs that fill his store, the shelves, the floor and even the ceiling all dripping with glorious goodies from pastas, wines, meats and cheeses to delicacies, sweets and liqueurs - where on Earth is one supposed to walk in this fantastic Cornucopia? Gosh, I'd love to meet him!

    A brilliant photograph and I can just imagine you lining up this shot with this chap beaming at you - all I hope is that you bought some of his wares and had a wonderful time gorging yourself on them afterwards!

    And, of course, it is the indomitable sprit of people like this who will make central Italy recover after this dreadful disaster.

    Wonderful!

    Kind Regards e un abbraccio,

    Giovanni.

    Hello Stephen,

    Once again, Clermont-Ferrand is giving you a wondrous series of opportunities for your camera! And you have again written a fascinating and informative note.

    This building itself is fascinating - stone built in its lower part but half-timbered in the upper storeys.

    I like your strong diagonal composition. The light and colours are good though I'm just a little concerned about that sky which looks on my monitor to have a slightly greenish hue to it - but the façade of the building is lovely with perfect colours and excellent sharpness and detail.

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Stephen,

    Doors and windows always provide good photographic subjects and this fine doorway is no exception though I'm reminded that our own front door is rapidly approaching this state and that I must do something about it before winter sets in.

    It's strange, but decay and rust and flaking paint do seem to appeal to photographers and that is very much the case here. The light, contrasts and textures of the flaking paint and rotting woodwork are well captured in this fine photograph and the bold stone archway makes a perfect frame for the main subject.

    A good rub down and a fresh coat of paint would indeed make this door look a lot better but might make its stone surround look more shabby - perhaps best just leave it as it is!

    Splendid!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    An interesting and informative note and a lovely photograph with wonderfully strong perspective. aided by your high viewpoint.

    The line of repetitive steps draws the eye well into the image and I love how the people seem so small and insignificant, their shadows standing out more than they do themselves. Almost monochrome, the image is brightened by the colourful patch of grass on the right and the sight of the colourful area of people eating and drinking alfresco in the foreground.

    Lovely light and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

    Wonderful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    I'm glad to see the church is still there. It would be a great loss.
    Still, very sad about all the people who lost their lives and families who lost their loved ones. They cannot be repaired like buildings can.

    Hello Chris,
    A good composition from just before the blue hour. There are two very distinct lines of the quay cutting deep into the photo and the distant horizontal quay full of buildings and lights. The sky has a fine blend of blue and purple tones and the distant lights are perfectly reflected in the water.
    Best wishes,
    Gert
    PS Your camera and probably your skills have developed considerably since your Chinese journey in 2000.

    Fantastic colours and well managed evening light. I like the way the frame is divided in two parts: warm and cold-blue. The reflections in water are also very beautiful.

    Hello Paul,
    Indeed a peaceful bit of fun flying kites at sunset. The yellow light from lamps are well matched by the last traces of sun rays hitting the clouds here and there. This looks far away from the tourist crowds, but if the country really gets peace things may change. War has been going on since I was a teenager but I don't remember any reports from when it started. Maybe that says something about news reports from South America in those day, probably it says more about what mattered to a European teenager with his head full of the Beatles and Rolling Stones and not much else. But you captured a good atmosphere here in a very well exposed photo.
    Best regards,
    Gert
