    Ciao, This statue is a bit different than other by Mitoraj but also easy to recognize. I didn't know he lived in Pietrasanta. How great that he gave this to the city.

    Hi Piotr
    The weather is not on your side but it's sufficient to bring all its features to life; fine control of highlights, adequately coloured especially the foreground bright green boosting the overall contrast to dark gloomy clouds. A picture with depth and perspective nicely shot. Congrats, tfs

    Hello Maria,

    In result I had no stop in Listvyanka, we just went for a ferry to Port Naikal and then by Krugobaikalka. Also for Taltsy I had no opportunity to go. But my Baikal trip was marvelous and I was very lucky with the weather. What a shame you had cloudy days there. Nice a bit nostalgaic view. WArm regrads from Moscow

    Bonjour Denis,

    This is a delightful and very appealing photograph but unfortunately I don't think such pictures seem to attract quite so much attention on TE as they really should. But I love it!

    The light here is lovely and you have managed to "separate" this lovely animal perfectly from its slightly out of focus background. The details and sharpness in this creature are superb and I love its pose and how it almost appears to be "sniffing" the cow parsley and other wild flowers.

    A very appealing photograph indeed.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Lars,

    Well, I am sitting up late (2 a.m. just now) watching with interest the results of the Scottish referendum coming in! And here is a beautiful photograph of this iconic Victorian bridge, taken in beautiful light from, interestingly enough, North Queensferry which is the home of former prime minister Gordon Brown who has given some very inspiring speeches very recently in favour of the "No" campaign against Scottish independence. So, yes, a very appropriate and timely posting indeed!

    Your composition is excellent and very pleasing, the light is delicious, the colours are true and the details and sharpness are exquisite.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Costantino
    a very relaxed feeling here.
    this is how I envision my future after retirement perhaps :)

    just spending my day chilled and relaxed, no pressure!

    the boat in the bg gives a good secondary subject to focus on too.
    enjoy your day

    Hello Jason,
    Great shot! I like this traditional, wooden house; it has so much charm and character. The little girl's face is precious, (even though Craig might think she's a bit sinister...ha ha!), and the splashes of blue jump out at us. There's so much to like about this one. I even like that one vine with leaves on it that's creeping upwards. Cool photo! :-)

    Hi Malgo
    another fine example of whats out there still waiting to be explored!

    never heard of this place before seeing your photos.
    great brown/yellows mixed with blues.

    excellent light and exposure too, nothing wrong with this one! looking forward to seeing more as well.
    enjoy your day

    Hello Jean,

    This really is a very striking shot and certainly also a lesson in "Rule of Thirds" composition! Not only that but it is also a lesson in the physics of light, refraction and photography in general because I submit that it would be quite impossible to take a photograph like this at a huge aperture of f/3.3 on a DSLR (or any camera with a large sensor or film dimension) and still achieve such incredible depth of field. That door, I'm guessing, was probably only a foot or so away from you and the top of the stairway looks a good thirty or more feet away and yet both are still sharp.

    Well, after that enlightening (?) discussion, I like this one! The colours and textures in that ancient wood and iron door are wonderful and those textures contrast well with the softer colours and tones of the enclosed stairway climbing into the distance on the right.

    A very original photograph, very well seen and very well taken indeed.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. An interesting note about this place too.

    Hi Rosemary

    great shot!
    I have to admire photographers who do these types of scenes.
    I still have to 'train' my eye to see such scenes and notice the value of them.

    For this one, its all about the facial expression.
    the lean to his right and the grimace is awesome - from our point of view anyways!

    nice shot, great catch!
    cheers

    Hello Ourania,

    What a curious scene - but so well captured by you - you were obviously very "quick on the trigger" to manage to catch this shot!

    Perhaps the cat is trying to be intimate with his/her master (not that cats ever have masters or mistresses as they are so independent anyway) - but the man is just too busy concentrating on his mobile 'phone to be bothered with any intimacy.

    A brilliantly captured shot with remarkable detail considering that it was taken quickly.

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hi Silvio
    you're showing me some places in Italy that i've never heard of before, and thats a good thing - always fun to learn right!

    I'm no expert, but it looks like a classic Old Historic Italian Cathedral that we've seen in many photos here, including in your gallery too.

    beautifully rustic.
    funny to see the street on the far left with the car passing by - i bet it wasn't like that when it was built! haha

    excellent light and color in the sky

    Hi Angshu
    yes I have to agree that the insides of these mosques are quite something aren't they!

    and of course the upwards POV is the best way to show it off in all its glory.

    attractive shot, it stands out well in your gallery.
    lots to like here with the colors and architectural style.
    see you around
