    Hello Romano
    the sort of place that I find irresistible as a location. There is so much character and a tinge of sadness about deserted places like this. Love the warm brickwork which contrasts so beautifully with the cold of the deep blue sky.

    Wonderful!

    Howdy Malgo,

    I was just about to head out for a while when I spotted this beauty, and had to stop to admire this lovely image from Burano....I guess it's been on a few peoples brains lately. :) This is a village certainly deserving of being presented in color, and well...when there's this much blue, it will always grab my attention! :)

    So many supporting details and accent colors, but best of all are the two young ladies adding that human element and interest. Glad that we could be of inspiration to post this shot. :) Hope all is going well. Take good care my dear friend.

    Cheers from sunny side,

    Jason

    Hola Luis,

    You're doing wonders for the offices of tourism in these small towns scattered along the Riviera. :) Even from this distance, I do have the perception of this being quite strong in that medieval charm which you mentioned. The wide perspective offers us a super layout of the village, and how it's set right along the mountainside. From a greater distance, it might just fade right into the natural surroundings. :) What else to say, but another beautiful and sharp presentation from the South of France. Keep 'em coming my friend! Hope all is well. Take care.

    Cheers from Phoenix,

    Jason

    Hi Saša,

    These concert shots are always so full of energy and a wonderful array of colored lights...and this falls right into that same enticing and fun visual. Understanding the difficulties of shooting under the circumstances, it's an impressive result to capture much clarity and sharpness. Must be difficult too, yeah...photograph, or stop and enjoy the music with everyone else? :) Take good care. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Costantino,

    A fine, and fun dedication...to both Craig & Mesut, as well as the laundry theme. I've always enjoyed these scenes, there's just something very European about them for me...not really what I would see in my region. The air dried clothing certainly adds a burst of color against the rustic tones of this old home, and even offers a contrast of textures. Let's just hope it doesn't begin to rain now. :) Hope all is well. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hey Craig,

    Oh man, I've missed a lot of great pics again...and I have to jump on this one today, what an awesome take on the Spanish Steps. Not only is it a fresh perspective, but the timing to catch this couple embracing for a kiss is outstanding!

    O.K., that's enough of the "girly" side coming from me. lol Seriously though, it's refreshing to see a new outcome from such an iconic place, and to have a fun spread of people going about their actions puts emphasis on the popularity of this locale.

    Cool WS pic too, but I do prefer this as the main post...can't go wrong with either one though. :) Sweet work capturing the "action." Hope all is going well bud. Take it easy.

    Cheers from down South,

    Jason

    Hi Ike,

    An interesting series of pictures from these caves, there's quite a resemblance to Antelope Canyon here in Az. Not nearly as red in color, but the shape and form is quite similar in appearance. Another fun play of light and shade, giving a strong sense of dimension and even some distance in this particular shot. Having seen the previous pictures, I can still perceive a good sense of scale in this one. Sharp and textured, this turned out nice indeed. Hope all is going well. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hello John
    Yep! Dreaming too! This last week on the run up to Christmas is perhaps the best week of the winter, with all the festivities and party atmosphere, then it goes into wishing the time away before the warm days return. A simple and yet enticing composition, which sums up the very appeal of the Lake District. Love the light in this one and the little burst of colour from the foxglove in the lower right.

    Idyllic!

    Enjoy your weekend - B.

    You asked about my recent "soft focus" shot and the use of perhaps a filter. I have a piece of software from "Premium Effects" which is a Photoshop Plug-in and has what is called a "glow" filter. There are lots of pre-sets and I opted for the "dark glow" after a fair bit of experimentation. Was quite pleased with the result. B.

    As an aside I am getting thoroughly p*ssed off with the blasted sound bite adverts that are now popping up on this site. I have no objections to adverts being displayed here but when they start acting like those on TV it gets beyond a joke, sometimes two at a time go off and it is a complete cacophony of utter tripe. I may well think about leaving in the New Year if it gets any worse. Not sure if it has been raised in the forums but perhaps it should be, not that it would probably make a blind bit of a difference. B.

    this interior looks wonderful. I love the enticing perspectives here, but it is the blaze of colourful flags and banners that make it jump out at you. Clever offset POV too that works perfectly.

    Magnificent!
