    Hi Philippe
    A peaceful scene by the small river and a beautiful reflective image with the eyes spreads deep into the frame as the fig draws attention too. I love the perspective, colour contrast and detail. Your exposure control is great as usual. Well done shot, Congrats.

    Bonjour, cher Chris,
    A Paris, il y a le périphérique, certaines villes ont des échangeurs, des voies rapides, etc. qui peuvent défigurer l'environnement, mais, c'est ainsi, il faut faire avec.
    Cela dit, la vue proposée est très intéressante et mérite d'être mise en vedette avec le panorama offert.
    Amitiés.
    Philippe

    Bonjour, chère Bev,
    Cette église construite à l'aide de la pierre de pays (cailloux). Habituellement, les constructeurs utilisaient très souvent les pierres de carrières. Le charme opère joliment à travers cet édifice aux origines intéressantes.
    Amitiés.

    Hello Chris,
    I remember this view and I remember my own surprise at finding that kind of road so close to the Old town. These elegant buildings don't have the most beautiful neighbourhood, but it's an interesting photo and the colours are fine.

    Hi Danos
    Your capture works very well in bringing out the very best of this sight with its attractive old buildings as main feature. The bright tower and green dome have somehow grab as strong contrast against the setting which is definitely is a big hit. Above all the tones and your pp lends this moody shot with a timeless feel Excellent take, Congrats.

    Hello Craig,
    This is not the most typical photo from Iceland, but how nice to see something different from the usual postcards. The nearest barns actually make me think of my own photos of "Maybe urban art", but this is of course anything but urban. I like this combination of neglect and amazing scenery and the immaculate sharpness and clarity.
    Berst regards,

    Ha! Ha! Christiane, I have just critiqued a photograph from exactly the same location, submitted by Malgo!
    I do like that the horse has turned to you especially for the photograph!
    Your photograph shows much more of the square so it is different in that respect and we can understand the setting of the carriage.
    Did you take a ride in it?

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Danos,
    This is an amusing photo. We don't see so much of the beautiful surroundings, but you made a good observation of this meeting between the tourist boat and the persons standing on the kayak and you timed the photo perfectly. It's a delightful daily life snapshot.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,

    This is so different from my contribution!
    This is power, sleek in every way!
    I like how you have cropped it, as if to define its shape.
    It is streamlined and glossy, so different, in fact, from the train in the b/g and light years ahead of my steam train!!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Nicolas,
    You have captured the contrasts of light and shady areas beautifully, as well as the contrasts of black and white surfaces. The glaciers look like a giant had been pouring whipped cream down the mountainside. It's again a very artistic composition with beautifully soft tones.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    You make me totally confused! For a moment I thought I was going crazy ;-). I had just written about Christiane's photo when I saw this and thought I had greeted the wrong person. When I had calmed down ;-) I again notice how different pictures two persons can take from the same place. You went closer and cropped the dark sky and created a photo of a white different character. I like them both, and also your workshops.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Stephen,

    I know I have written this before but I am totally amazed by the skill of the Medieval sculptors and the beauty of their work. There is an abundance of their work here, which you have photographed with great clarity and fine composition. Though the light was bright, you have controlled it well and shown some excellent light/shadow contrasts.

    Have a great day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Christiane,
    It's a well taken photo from a good angle. The diagonals created by the beautifully painted houses and the horse carriage have a certain dynamic effect which appeals to me. In my opinion the lonely pigeon near the left side balances the entire composition, however small it is.
    Kind regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The lack of interior and the black exterior suggests that this carriage was used for funerals. Maybe that is why it is decorated with praying angels.
    It is a very well exposed interior photograph with collected details that we can all observe.
    A fine ending to the tour of carriages.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    I like the informality of this with the colourfully vibrant exhibit creates an excellent composition. The lighting & tones collaborate smoothly adding much to the mundane shot. Well done, Congrats

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's a nicely symmetric photo and the building is quite attractive, even though the dark tower doesn't quite seem to fit the light façade. It's a well taken, well exposed postcard.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The glacier is an amazing feature.
    You can easily imagine that it is cascading water, frozen in time.
    The soft light creates lovely contrasts.
    The horns, to me, appear like the ears of a giant wolf, crouching behind the mountain.

    Have a great day,

    Hello Jorge,
    I have only seen this small town from a long distance from ferries when going to or from Paros town. It looks very nice and very typical of the Cycladic islands. Everything perfectly white according to the local rules. It's a perfectly exposed photo with fine balance between the blue tones of the sky and the sea.

    Hello Danos,

    I have heard of the beauty of Lake Bled before and surely the deep colours of the water and the exquisite reflection are what attract the eye initially.
    The two 'crafts' are sharp and very well balanced in the frame, creating the action to this lbeautiful setting.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Alexandre,
    Cropping part of the stick is totally irrelevant to me. The horizontal lines of the snow show us perfectly the speed you wanted to capture. I think it's logical to focus on the boots instead of his head, if there had to be a choice. The speed is produced by his feet and skis, so to my mind the perfect sharpness of his legs and boots seem to underscore the sense of movement indicated by the rest of the photo. I think it's an excellent photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
