    Bonjour Serge,
    this is a very lovely place, you are offering us a vivid and enticing impression of it, the colours are rich and delightful and there are appealing natural textures everywhere. I like very much the way the wall extends through the deep and clear scenery, the sky completes the view in a wonderful way. The atmosphere feels calm and intimate, I'd be curious to explore this place. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely Easter week,

    Hello Gert,
    this is another proof that you can find human interest anywhere and that you can make ordinary scenes look significant and intriguing. I like very much the way you are presenting this simple scene, the workers look too hot and tired, they don't even have the strength to talk and seem to be reluctant to step into the sunlit area and continue their work. The cones provide a graphical and meaningful environment, it's like the people are trapped by them. I also like the textured wall and the closed window. A very interesting "summer in the city scene". Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely week,

    Bonjour Yvon,
    a marvelous view along the river and over the valley, irresistible depth and superb clarity that allows us to appreciate all the characteristics and details of the beautiful scenery. I like very much how you grounded and framed your composition with the solid, textured rampart. I also like the vividness of the natural colours and the warmth of the stones. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely Easter week,

    I love simple, natural scenes like this Brian. The light has emphasised the freshness of newly opened leaves and they are wonderfully contrasted by the darker backcloth.

    Spring has sprung.... how lovely

    Hello Gosia - This is fascinating. I am struck by the special Palm Sunday robes and wonder what the origins are. Covering the face seems to be a strange thing for a religious ceremony and more akin to those who wish to remain incognito.

    Your shot is stunning; the colour and detail in the robes is superb and I like the way the eye is framed by a sea of purple.

    Warm regards

    Hello John,
    this is a great picture, you made the cloudy day and the difficult lighting conditions look like good luck:) There's a wonderful, consistent chromatic palette and there are certain eye-catching details that help the cityscape become more lively. I like very much the smooth dynamism of the composition, the fine, contrasting textures and the calm mood. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Claude - I love the graphic lines of this landscape; the long straight road disappears over the horizon and is beautifully punctuated by the trees. Additionally the colours are harmonious and you did well to spot the colour-coordinated frog warning.

    What a super shot.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    a very enjoyable and interesting plunging view to the famous landmark. From this point of view we get a thorough presentation of its architectural details and a good glimpse of the setting around it. Your picture is extraordinarily sharp, sunlit and shady areas are so well balanced in terms of lighting. You captured very fine natural colours. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hi Carlo
    its for scenes like this one that attract me so much to Italy - I can't wait to get there. I'll be in Rome and Venice in June :)

    beautiful skyline to contrast the yellow sandstone colors that dominate, its a fine blend of the two.
    love the choice of the slight angle too.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Roland
    although the scene is a simple set up with 1 solitary person, its actually eye catching.
    the large oversized white border, the shadow extending to the right all work well visually.
    nice shot all around

    Hi JJ
    now this is my type of photo and scene :)

    well framed and composed inside the square.
    although we can't tell this is from Amsterdam, I can certainly see it being from there.

    really like the full on grey paint.

    Καλησπέρα Ελένη,
    μια πολύ όμορφη και ευχάριστη παρουσίαση της ελληνικής φύσης την άνοιξη, μια εικόνα γεμάτη άνθη. Πολύ καλό βάθος και εξαιρετική ευκρίνεια. Τα χρώματα είναι έντονα και ωραία, το φως του μεσημεριού έχει μια ιδιαίτερη γλυκύτητα, φιλτραρισμένο από κάποιο συννεφάκί. Θαυμάσιες οι υφές αλλά η ζωντάνια της εικόνας σου ανακαλεί ακόμα και τα αρώματα που αναδίδονται σε ένα τέτοιο σκηνικό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, Καλό Πάσχα με νέες όμορφες αναμνήσεις!

    Hello Subhendu,
    an elegant and delightful composition that presents an iconic scene of hard work on the field. The ploughman and his oxen stand out as 3D, they are wonderfully touched and highlighted by the light. I also like the way the light reflects on the water, giving it a silvery glow. The fresh, green background is a pleasing part of the composition that adds meaning and provides contrast too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely week,
