    Hello Serge

    I love this little funny grab shot. But I can't get beyond the car. It's obviously based on a 2CV, but my extensive research on the Internet reveals little, except that this must be a 2CV modification: and an excellent one as well. The closest I could get is this...

    Regards

    Hello Gy

    I echo Kasia's refusal to complain (criticism = analysis in my book, which is never out of place!) So to the criticism. A really strong low key but contrasty b/w image. Plenty of grain (not noise!) in the few mid-tones, but that's fine: street photography is allowed - nay required - to be gritty and edgy. The silhouette works really well. I can't quite work out the roof (?) above, which is part of the interesting mystery of this photograph. I love it. Keep using expired film!

    Kind regards

    Will

    P.S. When are you coming to my exhibition in Glastonbury?? (See Facebook!)

    Hello Ourania,
    The nice little boat, looking very much home-made, is well placed near the corner where it perfectly balances the buildings near the opposite corner. There is also a nice contrast between the boat's dark blue paint and the white buildings, just as between the light blue sky and the very dark blue sea. It may seem like a simple and plain photo, but it is obviously a very well considered and carefully executed composition, technically as perfect as ever.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ali,
    This is a breathtaking scenery and a very good composition. I like the cloudy sky and the rather dark colours of the landscape. This looks very much like a painting by a clever artist.

    This photo has a remarkable light and fantastic, intense colours, as well as a captivating play of light and shadows. The black sky is perfect to enhance the impression of the fašade.

    Hello Ana,
    This is also a very good photo. The background and the fine colours mean as much to the picture as the figures themselves. When I see these remarkable pictures I can't help but thinking of some horror movie where strange creatures who seem funny and harmless at the beginning turn out to be dangerous and evil.

    Hello Will,
    It's nice to see you posting again. Before I even read the note I thought this was a picture that would have made a Romantic artist from the early 19th century proud. Kaspar David Friedrich would have liked it. I like the white waterfall between the dark rocks and the generally rugged scenery very much. The note and the WS make this a very interesting contribution to TE. I always love a good story along with a good photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Daniel,
    An interesting view from the top of Globen. The clouds and the slight haze has produced a nice silvery tone. I have never used this lift and this view makes me a bit confused. From this perspective I find it hard to recognize these southern suburbs. Do you remember which direction this was? Were you looking to the west, which to me seems the be most likely?

    Hello Ryszard,
    It seems that once again dark clouds help to bring out the best colours, or at least they make a correct exposure easier. This is a nice building, but maybe nothing outstanding, but the great colours and light make this a very enjoyable photo anyway. It is as always also a very nicely composed photo with a good balance .
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Murat,
    When I saw the thumbnail I thought my computer screen looked dirty, I didn't realize I was looking at a heavy snowfall. The slow movements of the snowflakes has created a very attractive pattern all over the photo. There is a lovely combination of these white streaks, the red neon sign and the black background. It's a well taken, nicely balanced and very eye-catching composition.
    Kind regards,

    This is a charming and beautiful composition. The green parrot adds a perfect complementary piece of colour to the elegant ancient architecture of the sandstone mosque. You made a very good observation and a wise decision to take a photo.

    Hi Ney
    awesome shot.
    what's not to like about this one!
    not only do the mountains stand out well, but the clouds do too. the clouds are hugging the mountains all the way across.
    Wish I could see this place in person.
    great shot

    Hi Piotr
    gotta love the wide angle lens right!
    I never leave home without it haha

    the sky and clouds make a strong visual impression, as do the stone on the ground, it looks quite vast.

    the orange colour on the left stands out too.
    well done with the exposure settings.

    Hi Robert
    I think I mentioned to you before that I grew up in Newfoundland and Ottawa, now i'm living out in Vancouver.
    Here out west, we just don't get to see such winter atmospheres unless we go up into the mountain areas.

    This reminds me of being a kid again living in cold winter conditions and I love it.

    this would certainly be a place i'd like to check out for myself some time.

    Hi Ike
    imagine this photo without the attractive lighting, it just wouldn't be the same. The lighting is bright and yellow, warm and invites us in. I've taken many photos of such statues with dull light and they suck!
    not this one.

    Hi Noel
    interesting to hear you say the church is quite bland and boring on the inside and outside - I wouldn't have thought that by how it looks here.
    obviously its an attractive photo with the lighting and reflections.

    PS
    I laughed out loud with your comment about finding a model in the woods in my latest post - that was funny dude!
    cheers
