    Hello Nicolas
    love this! It is so effectively and creatively composed. The mix of colours and positioning of everything is both artistic and eye-catchingly beautiful.

    Inspiring work!

    So you're back Rosemary!

    maybe he is waiting for the library to open and is consulting the houses prices and is absolutly astonished. Good tight framing, with the off centered bench equilibated by the library advert, the B&W mood concentrates the eye on the scene.

    Hello Noel
    a superbly chosen POV that makes this magnificent and palatial looking house stand out so beautifully. Lots of wonderful history that always attaches to places like this and so good to see it has been maintained. Captured perfectly with lots of visible detail and a real sense of its setting and appeal.

    Wonderful!

    Hello Ryszard
    love your Polish educational images and commentary like this one. A place and construction that if not for you and TE I would know nothing about. It looks magnificent and so deserving of renovation. Lots of amazing history here and a truly original bridge complex that I find fascinating. Wonderful and thanks for sharing this.

    Love it!

    Hi Wolfgang

    Street photography is so exciting, we don't know what we are going to take in picture, and we have to react promptly because the scene is always changing.

    The man on the ladder and the advert are common, but the adjonction of the finger is what makes the story, no need to describe the situation, we have understood the photographic talk between the 2 men.

    Добрый вечер Maria,

    It almost feels a bit strange not be be writing a small bit in French!? lol

    This is quite a lovely view you had from your terrace, one which is even better to have breakfast than the places seen below...plus, you wouldn't even have to be dressed...a completely casual and comfortable meal. :)

    I really like the blue tones you captured at this moment, as you mention, there's a special ambiance to the setting. I can imagine it's quite a peaceful spot, far removed from any big city hustle and bustle. It may take many years, but this is now on my travel wish list to explore so much more of Russia. Until then, I will have to enjoy it through picture...and this one sure helps promote the experience! Желаю вам замечательные выходные мой друг. Be good.

    Cheers from the pale side,

    Jason

    Hi Noel,

    Boy oh boy, if this doesn't have your signature written all over it, then I don't know what does! :) As soon as I spotted this a couple of days ago, I knew it had to be yours...and would you look here, it is!

    Not only is the image appealing, but your note includes 'Phoenix,' so of course that makes it a bit personal for me. O.K., so that's completely unrelated, but you can't deny the link. lol

    The silhouetted column and statue, rising high under the bright, and backlit sunburst is striking...having an immediate visual impact with only so little included within the frame. I gotta' say, that's one awesome chicken! :) No wonder it's perched way up there, it needs to stay far from the reach of Colonel Sanders and his 11 herbs & spices. And what a coincidence now, it's time for some dinner, KFC sounds good all of the sudden. Have a great weekend. Take it easy.

    Cheers from PHX,

    Jason

    Hi Gert,

    A fine note that paints a picture, and a picture that follows suit! This has to be one of the best examples of these two facets coming together, figuratively and quite literally.

    Your efforts of trying to take this shot have been extremely well rewarded, this is without doubt a fulfilling image in virtually every regard. Bringing together fiction and reality on the every day level is fantastic, and the timing to capture this given moment couldn't have been scripted any better.

    The large painted figure on the right has me wondering what she's seeing on that womans phone(?) as she's looking over her shoulder. Not only that, but she looks a lot like a work associate of mine...this really hits close to home for me. :)

    A short trip for you has paid off large, and to think it's always been so close. Another wonderful observation on your part, and a delight to see through your lens! Enjoy the weekend ahead. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hola Angel,

    On the technical side, I would echo Craigs thoughts, the exposure control is superb! The white's are in tact, not washed out, while the sky is a natural shade of blue and the remaining colors are balanced and strong in their own regard.

    Now, for the fun stuff...this is a lovely daily life scene, who wouldn't want to be young again and be outside in this beautiful square to enjoy playing with friends? :) And with only a small handful of other people around, plenty of space to kick around the football...it's a win-win! :) Really well achieved! Enjoy the weekend ahead. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hey Serghei,

    While myself and Malgo both went with a horizontal composition, you changed it up and used a vertical format...and it makes for a very pleasing presentation of this stretched building. The clouds above help fill the frame with added interest, and what is that we had....is it, really...the sun?? :)

    I think the shadows also help play a large role in this shot, only a few, but they render a nice element of contrast. And of course, the lady in the foreground for human presence and an idea of motion. Well my friend, I wish you the best of new adventures in Turkey, and wait in anticipation of those pictures to follow. :) Have a wonderful trip and travel safe. Check back in with us as soon as you can, and please pass along my regards to your lovely family. Take care.

    Friendly wishes from the desert,

    Hi Ourania,

    Right place at the right time, and in the right frame of mind! :) Don't you just love these instances, the "lucky capture?" Completely unintended, and extremely rewarding to have been blessed with such fortune.

    I have taken a similarly composed shot of a cook preparing some fries, seen through a Parisian window/balcony very much the same as you have constructed here...and with the same good luck afforded. :)

    A routine, daily life moment captured at just the right time to best express that theme...or perhaps, it sounds like you may have the only proof that someone actually does reside here! Rustic, warm and inviting atmosphere. Great instincts and quick reactions have garnered a lovely image, well done! Enjoy the weekend. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Ahoy Cap'n D,

    Love what you've done here, this is a great concept and unique way to showcase the detail of these ships. Good thing you detailed the staircase though, I'm sure there would have been some who thought it was a natural part of the construction...and if that's the case, why not put in a elevator to the top?? :) Clever arrangement!

    Nicely timed as well to celebrate the "no's,"....well, for those in that party anyway!? The flag, albeit relatively small here, has a big impact against the creamy tones of the sails. What really gets me though are the shadows, a fun play of light throught the frame.

    Only one question remains from this festival, why weren't you on one of these ships taking a booze cruise down the Thames? ;p Well done my good man, this has been an enjoyable set of pics! Have a good one. Take it easy.

    Cheers from the dusty desert,

    Bonjur Serge,

    My favorite market in Rome, and it's easy to understand why with so much packed into a small piazza. Full of life, character and color...and your picture encapsulates that idea. With a plethora of fruits, vegetables and so many other items being sold, it's a virtual well of photo opportunities. This shows us a good idea of the variety and atmosphere that abounds, I can almost hear the sounds and smell the aromas bustling through here. :) Cool shot! Bon weekend. Have a good one.

    Amicalement,

    Jason
