    Hello Gert,

    Yes, Maastricht brings to mind the treaty so it is interesting to see what the city is actually like.
    The open square and statue, surrounded by alfresco cafes and eclectic buildings gives me an insight into its character.
    Your shot is well timed, using the cyclist to animate the f/g.

    The market shots are bright and colourful and I feel that one particular fishmonger is hogging your attention!
    Ha! Ha!

    My warm regards,

    Hello Ike,

    You must have an interesting journey to work!
    This is a very attractive building with its wrought iron balconies and bay windows.
    I can imagine how light those rooms are, with a three windows access.
    How lovely to have tall palm trees at your front door, which is a clue to the warm climate of your country!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Sergio,

    From the thumbnail, the pattern stands out the most but full size, especially on Beta, the 3D character and the metallic textures come into play.
    A wonderfully sharp photograph!

    Hello Serge,

    What an environment!
    The glacier looks like a curving, icy road, framed by the many mountains of differing colours and textures.
    It's beautifully composed and well exposed.

    Hello Lars,

    This is a beautiful, blue photograph!
    The 'wood extractor' makes a good f/g focal point before the lovely curve of the seafront guides us inwards towards the tall skyscrapers and the huge wheel.
    The tall masts of the boats give a sense of balance to the opposing skyscrapers.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The roses and the ambient greenery make a beautiful environment for this attractive, roadside shrine. In fact, the rose tree works well to anchor the f/g and guide towards the focal shrine.
    I find the star-like shadows around the base of the shrine very attractive.

    Bonjour Philippe,

    This is a most unusual but very beautiful mackerel sky which is amber coloured from the rising sun! How lovely it looks reflected in the still water.
    The reflected trees add to the ambience and warmth of the picture.
    Beautiful!

    A second photograph from the show but equally attractive.
    The blue mountain b/g is perfectly composed against the sky and makes a superb backcloth for the jet trails which have an amazing 3D presence!

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    What a fine viewpoint you have chosen so that the converging lines act like an irresistible guide towards the central figures who appear to be in a spotlight.
    There are some intriguing details of the buildings and street furniture to add interest to the environment.

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour Serge,

    The utter luxury and beauty of these furnishings are undeniable.
    Anyone entering this room must be awestruck!
    You have captured these details with excellent sharpness and well saturated colours.
    The artificial lights must have been very useful.

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    The bright red scarf certainly draws attention to the young lady and then we become attracted by her pensive face.
    You have used shallow dof very effectively, with a useful b/g bokeh.

    Hello Rob,

    Thank you for this and the accompanying photographs, which together give a complete understanding of the bridge. The main post is my favourite, with its strong lines and repeating arches but it would have been impossible to understand the bridge as a whole without the additional shots.
    It's a well composed photograph, with good lead lines, a sense of perspective and animation. What more could anyone ask for!

    Hello Alexandre,

    You have captured some most interesting details of this small town. Though the street is unmade, it is obviously modern with facilities like electricity, speed controls and people in the latest clothing trends.
    The flags give good, colourful f/g attention whilst the ominous volcano casts a threatening presence in the b/g.

    Bonjour Stephen,

    I have just returned from the land of jambon and fromage so I enjoyed looking into this shop (sorry magasin).
    The bright red paint makes this a most attractive and eye-catching exterior. I like how you have used the open door as an invitation to enter and we just couldn't resist!
    What a great place to shop!

    Hello Malgo,

    It is so frustrating when you reach a scene that you have longed to visit and the weather doesn't co-operate! Still, although there is no blue sky, that doesn't detract from the imposing presence of the triple pagodas that you have captured so well.
    Like you, I perceived the person in red as a music conductor but she does add colour and animation to your photograph!

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)
    In answer to your question, the display will be in situ until November 19th. I do believe that the poppies are travelling around thw U.K.

    Hello Paul,

    A great series of photographs to give us an impression of this part of Vietnam. I don't think I have ever seen buffaloes looking so peaceful!

    Like you, I love this photograph! The terraced rice fields make a most attractive pattern, reminding me of my studies in geography when we were studying contour lines!
    You have chosen a good viewpoint, carefully revealing the steepness of the terraces as well as the attractive patterns.
    I had a little smile, imagining you carefully balancing on the narrow partition walls whilst trying to create this fine composition!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    This tower is a great feature to use as a main focal image, as it rises into the sky challenging the clouds and anchors the f/g in a most interesting way.
    The colourful, eclectic buildings make a most attractive b/g in your very well exposed photograph.

    Have a lovely day,
