    Bonjour Claude,

    This has to bring out the inner child in all of us! What a great shot, that I'm sure just about every single person can relate to...as child or even adult. :) Another composition that would have been interesting in its own right with the varied shapes, colors and textures...but the presence of this youngster and his curiosity takes center stage. Your senses and observational skills have paid off once again! Bonne journee. All the best.

    Amicalement,

    Bonjour Roland,

    I've really come to enjoy these types of minimalist shots. It's a smart composition and realization of the given elements to create an eye-catching image. The graphism of the stripes is broken nicely by these two gentlemen in passing, which in turn, are also creating a new element of their own in shadow. A good eye for pattern and perspective. Bien fait! Bonne journee.

    Amicalement,

    Hi Klaudio,

    Although not a coffee drinker myself, I do enjoy the aroma it produces. Great information behind this image, I would have never guessed Australia to be leading the pack. Just goes to show what a great learning tool TE can be, and as the saying goes "You really do learn something new every day."

    A beautiful cup of coffee, well presented to make almost anyone want to give it a try. :) A nice tribute to Luciano and fellow coffee drinkers worldwide. Quite an artistic cup, the design in the foam is a delightful touch. Detailed, evenly exposed and I really like the slow fade to blur from the shallow depth of field. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hallo wolfgang,

    So, this is the entire town...what we see here? :) This is a beautiful little corner, so much to take in from this small sampling, almost as if were constructed specifically for a photo shoot. I love the big shapes along with the many colors and textures within. A most pleasant way to enter the city, you've captured the allure of the old world, small town charm. enjoy the new day. Take care.

    Hi John,

    Wow, what a striking town hall, quite an eye-catching Gothic design! A small town with a big impact, yeah? :) I'm sure there are a bounty of photo opportunities within the details of the exterior architecture itself, but this wide open and grand view sure makes a statement of its own.

    And great timing to have captured the couple in the foreground with their dog, they add a nice little touch...like a family out for a walk on a beautiful late summers day. :) In fact, the people give us a good sense of scale too and aid in the overall pleasant atmosphere of this charming cobbled square. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take good care.

    Hi Bev,

    Ahhh, fun to dream isn't it...and it doesn't cost anything to wish. :) Clearly understood why you would want this as your own, I mean...I'd take it as well! What a beautiful setting, and that boat caps it off just right...like a picture perect painting.

    I suppose there might be a slight drawback though, the landscaping must be a constant work in progress to maintain the pristine conditions...but I suppose if you can afford the garden, a few extra pounds would cover the "outsourcing" fees.Love the array of greens, which stand out quite well under the muted light. A most pleasant composition and lovely view, keep the dream alive! :) Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Ciao Luciano,

    Quite a big watch tower for such a small town. Must be a cozy place, and I have to assume it's easy to find with this giant landmark. :) Love the big, bold and curved shape...you've utilized it to make a solid subject. The clarity, definition and textures are sharp...and with the clouds positioned where they are, almost makes this look more like a smokestack. lol Enjoy the rest of your day. Take care.

    Hey there Jeter-hater, what's up? :)

    So many people shy away from the famous "postcard" shots, but doesn't it almost feel obligatory to have them in your collection. Overdone or not, there's no shame in taking a well known sight or viewpoint, and when they're done as good as this, it just doesn't matter!

    And from my perspective never having been here, it all looks new to me anyway. :) Love this plunging drop towards the sea, and although I do actually recognize the little bell tower, this composition makes for a original vista. That fresh coat of paint really makes those domes bold, and as I say all the time, I do love me some blue color!! :)

    And good for you to wait out the bride & groom, I'm sure that karma will pay you back in the future. :) Awesome shot amigo, and one which even makes me a bit dizzy with vertigo....ooh, that's a long way down! Have a good one. Take it easy.

    Cheers from the dusty desert,

    Hi Lars,

    Safe to say, there's more than just a few of us who enjoy skylines. :) Such a classic view here, and one which I've taken a few pictures of myself. Unfortunately there's nothing that can be done about the haze, just something we have to live with in picture for the most part.....which is better than actually having to breath it!? Smart timing to wait for the passing boat, that burst of red makes a strong impact, but doesn't divert attention from that impressive city of Manhhattan. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Privet Miss Maria,

    I can't quite put my finger on it, but this looks extremely familiar! :) Oh, yes...GUM of course, I almost didn't recognize it because of the sun shining through. lol

    A great take of this beautiful interior, by far the most impressive mall I've ever seen. You were smarter than me, taking the lift to the top floor...wish I would have!? You certainly found a good viewpoint, squeezing in all elements from floor to ceiling, and using those colorful umbrella's as a nice centerpiece.

    The sunlight and shadows sure make a big difference in overall appeal and atmosphere. Although I detest shopping, I could easily spend more time here, and you've made a fine case for anyone else to do the same with this imagery....just keep track of your spending, as you know, it's pricey! Have a wonderful day. Take it easy.

    Cheers from QC,

    Hi Murat,

    Selective color can be a tricky thing sometimes, as it doesn't always work out as intended...but it sure does here! I really like the result, and how it focuses attention on the wall display, but doesn't detract from the rest of the surroundings and subjects. In an ironic way, it brings it all together quite nicely.

    Because of the stone configurations of the street, wall and building itself, I have to think a full color version might be a bit "chaotic" with pattern...this result alleviates what might be overpowering. But regardless of my take on it, this is a fine composition and pleasing viewpoint. Have a great day. Take care.
