    Hello Craig,
    the glow produced by the strong light reflected on the pure white marble must be mesmerizing, especially when you are surrounded by it and can see magnificent architectural features through it. You managed to capture it so effectively for the viewer of your photo as well. The quality of the colours is steady and marvellous all over this scene and you managed to capture the fine decorative details and the reflections too. The person walking along the facade is very well placed. The proportions of your composition are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir Denis,
    a beautiful summer that makes me think of summer, even though it was taken in winter. It is both simple and spectacular, I like very much the smart way in which you allowed the shape of the tree and the placement of the sun beds dictate your composition. The contrast between light and shadow and the contrast of warm and cold colours is so effective and enjoyable, the light is delicious. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonjour Stephane ,
    Très belle composition avec ce château écossais perché au dessus de ce petit loch . Le ciel est dynamique . Il y a bien la rive opposée qui donne l'impression que ça penche , mais ce n'est as trop génant .

    Hello Ana,
    this is a fine street scene/portrait, intriguing and amusing as the lady holding the knife is hiding a subtle and mysterious smile:) She is well tucked in this curious, makeshift setting with clean, vivid and attractive colours. I like the softness and clarity of the shady areas and the interesting lines in the lady's face and hands. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    I remember that this bank had attracted my interest in two of Paul's photos and I appreciate this close view you are offering us so that we can see what the cafes look like and how people relate to the scenery. This picture looks spontaneous but is also well composed with a strong perspective and with interest distributed wisely all over the frame. The light and colour management is very effective too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hi Ryszard
    this is like a rainbow row of homes :)
    certainly catches our attention from the gallery page, it stands out well.

    nice to have that little pop of clouds too, just for added fun.

    charming place indeed. amazing history here, imagine what it looked like back in the 1200's!

    Hi Denis
    this one is all about the composition!
    what a beautiful photograph.
    love how the open street adds depth and leads us into the upper portions of the scene.
    everything just flows so naturally, its very easy on the eyes.
    lovely light and colors as your usual too.

    Hi Malgo
    oh I think i'd love this place.
    its a rainbow of color, lots of pizzaz and style.
    its something we don't get to see very often at all.

    and best of all, you have yourself a wicked blue sky to go along with it. its frustrating when the sky doesn't co-operate.

    fun shot

    Hi Brenda
    yes, i've commented on those photos from Ana as well, so this is a good complimentary photo to go along with hers.

    its nice to hear that you sound surprised, even from a locals perspective - it sounds like you didn't expect to see this here.

    is it just me, or does Lady Liberty look a bit angry lol

    excellent street shot, classic nyc with a bit of a twist

    Bonsoir Jean,
    the natural beauty of the landscapes and coasts of Iceland is marvellous, indeed. In this picture you are presenting a classic, elegant composition that depicts the beauty and fierceness of the scenery in all its might. The light has added fascinating touches, invigorating the scene and vivifying the colours. The suggested movement in the sky, the sea and the landscape (shadows) is superb too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Noel,
    this must be one of the prides of Cork, an impressive castle that has a remarkably easy access and its architecture makes one think of fairytales. It's great that it is both an important element of the city's heritage and that it has found an interesting and peaceful use in our days. I like this presentation in the low light that has a dim but very agreeable warmth. Details are superb, the colours and the atmosphere serene and delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao Silvio,
    questa immagine e' molto diversa dalla precedente ma anche qui mi piace l' atmosphera, tranquila ma anche misteriosa. Le ombre aggiungono un fascino particolare siccome non e' evidente la loro provenienza e cosi ci mettiamo a indovinarla usando la nostra fantasia. Le tessiture antiche sono molto interessanti, i colori morbidi piacevoli. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e tutto il meglio,

    Ciao Silvio,
    il grafismo e l' atmosfera che hai catturatto e messo in evidenza con questa foto sono accattivanti. Mi piace l' effetto dei motivi ripetitivi e la ripetizione del gioco fra luce ed ombra. Bei colori contrastanti. I parti definiti dai colori hanno la stessa buona qualita' ma l' atmosfera che ogniuno esprime e' diversa. Hai messo il tutto in harmonia perfetta. Complimenti e grazie!

    Bonjour Jean,
    a beautiful picture with a great title. It's a wonderful composition with the old cottage caught between the two seasons, it's as if we were literally watching the change of the seasons, like in time lapse videos:) Your composition is elegant, the view clear and interesting, the colours and the atmosphere fresh and delightful.

    Hi Carlo
    as you probably know, I love abandoned buildings.
    so this one is right up my alley.

    lots of history here, lots of grunge, lots of weeds to sort through in the garden :)

    wonderful subject, lots of textures too.
    excellent post

    hai fatto benissimo di tornare indietro e catturare questo bellissimo annuncio di primavera per condividerlo con gli amici da tutto il mondo. E' un' immagine splendida con colori freschi e brillanti, dettagli gratificanti ed ottima prospettiva. Hai reso lo sfondo interessante e significativo con la vista parziale della facciata nascosta.

    Bonjour Serge,
    the view you are offering us is detailed, interesting and agreeable. You balanced all the parts of your composition effectively and the partial view gives us a thorough impression of the quay and the marina. I like the effect of the morning light that's gradually warming up the harbour and its colours. Such a charming place! Congratulations and thank you!
