    Hello Serghei,

    In this spectacular photo, it appears that a streaking meteorite has just struck the ground.. The light and sharpness are superb. I am also back from travels, and am beginning to post again.

    Hi Eleu,

    The light is perfect for the shot, and you timed it well to capture the windsurfer along with the two individuals paddling boards. We were in San Diego between Oct. 24-28, just a few weeks after you took this photo, and was genuinely impressed by the city.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Asa,

    Lovely Georgian architecture, similar to many homes in Virginia. the clapboard house, without its porch, could be in Williamsburg or Fredericksburg. I've also found that a vantage point featuring two point perspective ideal for depicting architectural portraits.

    Regards,

    Olá Ana,

    Realmente é muito bonito. E a tua compo é fabulosa, bem como as cores e nitidez. E gosto do toque À Riclopes e Adores da presença dos miúdos, que enriquecem a imagem tanto visualmente como "emocionalmente".

    Abraço, José.

    Ciao Lousat,

    I am not much of a fan of HDR or alikes, but when they are well done and appropriate to theme (and weather :-), like her, they are really much attractive. Besides de the colours, the "texture" and the dramatic mood rendered, the compo is admirable.

    Regards, José.

    Amazing view, very well composed and making clever use of the light and haze. I like a lot this series of yours on that beautiful but so rarely seen African country.

    Hello Aleksander,

    Great light, colours, architecture and sense of depth. The well managed vertical sunlight makes the textures and shapes of those intricate facades stand out nicely.

    Hello Paul,

    Amazing view and compo! The place is really very picturesque even without that fog or cloud and the blue sky. You used very smartly the lines and shapes of the landscape to get a great eye catching photo.

    Hello Ike,

    Curious and original building, reminiscent of scifi. You made it a nice framing with the trees and the contrast of the white against the deep blue of the sky is wonderful.

    Hi Craig,
    Contrasty black and white treatment is excellent. And framing with just a slice of sky as well.
    This could also almost show a snowfield. Maybe the appearance would just be less grainy and those wave patterns less likely to appear.

    Hi Jean,
    Beautiful sunset picture. I like the thin cloud layer in front of the sun, so that only the top edge shows as white. Red colour of the sky is really intense and makes good contrast with cool blue sea.

    Hi Ann,
    It is a stunning combination of open American landcape with mountain background and Northern cloudy and snowy weather. The red car is perfectly placed.
    Your selective desaturation is absolutely believable, I wouldn't have noticed without reading the note.

    Hi Neyvan,
    I guess almost every Norwegian town is between water and mountain. And that of course offers great viewpoints! Especially on bright summer sunshine like on this one.
    That big cruise ship looks too and has nice paint on the side.

    Hi dwaipayan,
    Magnificient mountain landscape and obviously very rewarding trek destination. Low angle light gives strong contrasts. Background range of snow covered peaks is awesome.

    A beautiful daily life scene in this covered market place.

    Hello Chris,
    A very well composed picture with clear reflections in the dark blue water on the foreground.
    Not only the light on the boats is beautiful but also on the mountains at the other bank of the lake where the reflected trees colour the water green.

    Hello Zbigniew,
    Picturesque litte houses with facades in different colours.
    The cobblestones also add to the charm of this street.
    The motorcycles tell us that it's not really so quiet there as first thought.
    Above the street we find a cozy maze of cables.

    Bonjour Serge,
    La pente au premier plan est remplie de belles fleurs jaunes. En soi, une vue assez charmante. En face néanmoins, nous trouvons un géant et rugueux rocher calcaire sans croissance des plantes. Deux adversaires!
    J'aime aussi la lumière et les couleurs à l'horizon dans la mer et le ciel.
    Amicalement, Paul
