    Hi Bev
    I have to say, I think I enjoy the radio telescope photo more :)
    but that's just me, and you know my love for architecture and unique buildings - so its easy to understand why.

    when the sky is grey and dull, you have to sometimes be a little more creative and look for other compositions, and I think that's what you did here?

    it worked out well with the timing, s have the lady in red in the scene.

    and I like the WS photo bc its fun to see the 2 people looking UP at it, in almost awe sort of way.

    fine collection of shots.
    see you around

    Hi Aleksander
    another fine example from your city.
    these are views you havn't really shown us before.

    nice to see a lot of greenery and trees surrounding the homes and buildings.

    the blue boat stands out well because of the unique colors and could be looked on as the focal point.
    nice views and shot
    cheers

    Hello Daniel,
    amazing what wine history and art is hiding behind the striking graphism of this scenery in your photo. I like very much the different layers and the details that distinguish them, you accentuated textures and colours in a very apt and interesting way. I like the effect of the warm light and the bold contrast, the sense of mystery regarding the interior of the buildings and the fascinating shadow of the bridge. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hi May
    beauty!
    I wish I had taken this exact same composition :)
    I like your description of the buildings leaning on each other in a drunken manner.

    lovely colors, smart upclose and tight compo,
    works so well to capture our attention

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    My first impression is of the lovely, colourful reflections, gently shimmering in the water. They could make a pleasing photograph in their own right!
    Then the boat on the left looks distinctly large and threatening, especially to the smaller boats facing it! It could make an interesting story for a children's book!!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Piotr,
    this is a very intriguing scene from Montserrat, you made the most of the shadows that mingle with the rocks in such a fascinating way. The setting looks suggestive and formidable, the textures of the rocks are captivating. I like that you excluded the sky or any other distracting refrence, the rocks look endless. The chapel has a discreet presence but is an exciting find in this scenery. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Christiane,

    What an interesting and attractive location. With the sun and the blue sky it looks perfect!
    You have chosen a fine vantage point for your photograph of the marina; the moored boats creating a natural guide from the f/g towards the town.
    The light reflecting on the boat's hull is a most interesting f/g detail.

    My warm regards,

    Bonsoir Jean,
    I like very much this composition, the great sense of depth you've achieved and the delightful contrast. The transient patterns on the sand are so attractive. The warm sand and the its texture are very inviting for a walk, the beacon offers a great focal point and destination. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    This is an amazing sight!
    Were you out for a game of golf when you came across these 'learners'?
    I wonder if they might mistake a golf ball for a goose egg!!
    This is certainly an amusing sight but it did not prevent you from composing he shot well.

    Hola Angel,
    it's interesting how you isolated the upper part of the stone beacon and focused on it, on the stonework, the straiway, the specific details that add some character and functional information to the structure. I like the point of view and the vast sea and sky scape as background. The colours are natural and charming. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,

    I love the indoor French Markets, most of them are contained within lovely buildings, like this, full of character and keeping the produce cool.
    The canopy is most interesting, not only providing information but, also, creating unusual shadow patterns on the façade.
    Your shot is nicely composed, the focal building in prime position, off-centre, with the b/g houses setting the context.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mariusz,

    Not only do you have the attractive container of flowers, for f/g interest but you, also, have the pattern of tiles for extra effect and to link the f/g with the forecourt to the church. The dof is excellent and I like how your filter has given this amazing colour to the sky.

    Bonsoir Denis,
    even though the greater part of the frame is occupied by the rocky coast, there's such fluidity and balance in your composition. A fascinating sense of movement is conveyed by the sea, the clouds and the play of shadows over the rocks. The textures and the colours are superb, you made the most of the delicious evening light. I like the motion and drama evolving around the solid tower, I'm also intrigued by the island on the horizon. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Ike,

    It is difficult to imagine the conditions and the implements available to builders 30 centuries BC but, you can understand why they chose this place with its extensive views across the plains.
    You have chosen a good viewpoint, guiding and linking together the ancient ruins with the more modern aspects of Israel.
    The close details are sharp, with a good dof.

    Bonjour Denis,

    I see you have visited the Pink Granite Coast. What a wonderful place it is, with its massive rocks and conspicuous lighthouse.
    The low sun is colouring the rocks with a much more golden hue but it is, also, catching the spume on the breaking waves, creating a sense of movement to the sea. The lighthouse stands proud in the light, a true sentinel!
    I am glad you have been able to include some figures; it is only by their presence that the sense of scale can be achieved.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
