    Hello, dear Brenda!
    First of all good choice of the point of view! Excellent combination the spot colour circles and this graphic design of the station. I don't know this Latin word, but I still remember the Olympic motto Citius! Altius! Fortius! ;)
    Best wishes!

    Hi, Bev!
    I think we were near this place, but I did not see the artwork with so big horns there. Fine postcard from Liverpool, thanks for memories!

    Greetings Gert,

    A fantastic post - love the high contrast between the black suits and the nicely saturated brick background. Not sure whether it makes me think more of The Blues Brothers or Reservoir Dogs - either way a great shot. Iain.

    Hello Stephen,

    You have done well to get a photograph at all!
    No need to apologise for using a smart phone!

    I love to see the interior of this temple.
    The details of carvings, lighting and floor materials are informative.
    Of course, the converging lines create a great sense of perspective.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hi, Iain!
    Good contribution to the Black&White category. Well done, excellent minimalist art work! Good idea to make it in b&w, so we don't need the colors here.
    Best!

    Bonjour Serge,

    You have captured this iconic scene with both mood as well as details.
    I like how you have shown the clarity of the f/g with a b/g that becomes ever more dingy as you progress.

    Have a lovely w/e,

    A stunning PoV - with a good sharpness to both the object and the image. What absolutely makes it for me is the pedestrian close to the mirror line who only appears in one side. A great shot, thanks, Iain.

    Greetings Bev,

    This is a classic view of NYC - 'done' thousands of times. But your forethought and working through the resistance to the early morning have paid off with a brilliant reinterpretation which is fresh and original. Well worth the early alarm. Iain.

    Merhaba Mesut,

    I cannot believe that this photograph has had no previous interest!
    It is well placed in the frame, it's colours are natural and the details are very well captured.
    In fact, the textures are so sharp that they are almost palpable!
    I like it!

    One of my favourites of your colourful Colombian works. I think I like the tight crop, with the black frame which holds the splash of colour. Nice work, Iain.

    Hello Krzysztof,

    It's a fascinating castle and you have revealed how it has been built with a variety of styles and materials.
    You have positioned it well in the frame, the entrance at the bottom corner and a natural upwards movement to give a good sense of depth and perspective.
    Colours are natural and details sharp.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    Oh, I recognise this scene!
    I will have to revise my archive of Edinburgh and see how the different times of year compare!

    It's a lovely shot.
    I do like how you have used the bushes to give a natural border to the f/g and a sense of depth to the valley's buildings, then Arthur's Seat.
    The details are all so accessible for perusal and comparison.

    I wonder how that tall, overpoweringly-modern building was given building permission to be placed in such a historic area!

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    A lovely rural scene, containing guiding sheep and a strongly placed house.
    The light is particularly good, adding warmth to the stones and to the animals.

    Hello May,

    It's a fine composition of this eye-catching feature.
    I like how you have joined the outer images by overlapping them with the sphere.
    The light is glorious, especially by its golden reflections on the pavements.

    I just wish that you would load photographs that were small enough to be viewed at once. This cannot be appreciated without shrinking the whole screen. Sorry to grumble!

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hallo John,
    Een ongewone voorstelling van de Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk met de achterzijde van deze woningen.
    Doch van hieruit hebben we een goed zicht op de puntdaken van deze huizen.
    De gotische toren rijst prachtig en hoog boven alle gebouwen op terwijl de egaal blauwe lucht een ideale achtergrond is.
    Prettig weekend, Paul

    Hello Iain,

    This is just about as different as it can get from your previous photographs!
    Here, the negative space is as important as the images.
    I'm not sure about the bright, piano reflection. In some way it links but if you block it out, the two images sit very subtly together.

    A great experiment which brings in mood as well as image.

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello, Gert! I like all photos, but this is the best no doubt. This place looks so picturesque, and the people look very friendly. I don't know the social and politic situation here now, but I hope they are lucky people. Good report from 1990. As always perfect journalist work! Best! Serghei
