    Ciao caro Carlo,

    Wow! This could be a photograph from a holiday brochure as it's the perfect scene to attract people to this part of Sicily.

    What more could one ask for in a holiday? Warm sunshine, blue sea and sky, a gorgeous coastline, beautiful scenery with flowers - and some ancient history thrown in for good measure.

    A spectacular view, perfectly captured with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Jean Claude,

    I remember visiting this place and what a wonderful reminder you have provided!
    The Alzette looks particularly still on this day, allowing you to take a photograph where the reflections are as clear as those from a mirror!
    A beautifully composed photograph which uses the the guide of the bridge to great effect.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Paul,

    I have always thought that Sicily would be an interesting place to visit, thanks for this!

    The car is actually very important as a reference point, to create the sense of depth to the house below, which are built like steps up the hillside. It's a picture which defines the individuality of the region, with its closely connected houses and pastel colours.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Gyorgy,

    This is a lovely shot, full of interest, particularly from the sky. The clouds look to have created a circle as if to encapsulate the sun, which has then proceeded to send out spears of light!

    Hi Benny
    So i guess this falls into the category of save yourself first!

    how about trying to help out the citizens with the flooding, try some preventative measures before hand. Taxes are necessary in a city, but overly high taxes just piss people off.

    I'd like to see more of this Medieval castle, looks quite large and bold with thick walls.
    cool post and history lesson to go along with it
    cheers

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    This is an outstanding capture of the Umbrian countryside!
    Utterly beautiful!
    The fields, with their masses of wild flowers and red bushes, undulating as far as the white topped mountains, are quite stunning! I find the whole scene quite breath-taking!

    Thank you for sharing this.
    It will have to go straight into my favourites.
    My warm regards,

    Hi Ourania
    sorry to hear about your neighbour, thats never an easy time for anyone.

    who would have known that such a subject like this would produce such excellent results.

    the lighting and overall gold tones are outstanding.
    i like this one alot, and we dont' get to see people using that old tool very often either.
    wonderful post and memory captured

    Hello Nicolas,

    These wild poppies are so vivid!
    They make a strong, visual statement amongst the whites and yellows of the surrounding wild flowers.
    I like how you have concentrated on the poppies, giving them the sharp focus, whilst the other flowers create the useful blurred b/g.

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour Serge,

    Your photograph reveals the tremendous strength and awesome construction of these fortifications! They look truly formidable!
    I like how you have concentrated on the repeating towers to create this mood. The towers are pin sharp, showing strong contrasts of their textural surfaces.

    My warm regards,

    Hello John,

    What a fine shot!
    I can't understand why you have had it under wraps for so long!
    The long time exposure has really captured the possible light to great effect! The buildings look gilded whilst the reflections across the water look like flames! And what a contrast they make with the dark hues of the sky!
    I keep being drawn to the single tree, silhouetted against the sky. It's a most eye-catching feature!
    A very well composed photograph and with such clarity! I'm proud of you, taking a tripod to Spain!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
    Thank you for your warm critique of my photograph. But, I have to tell that Len didn't come. I went with a close friend whose husband was too ill to travel.
    Have you made any definite arrangements to meet Craig?

    Hi Malgo
    are you sure you didn't visit Canada recently? haha
    because this looks exactly like some of the views I see during my hikes here in and around the Vancouver/Whistler area.

    it is pretty cool though to see the sunken forest, its not something we see alot of.

    that emerald green though is fantastic, looks very silky smooth. another fun experience for ya

    Ciao caro Luciano,

    Apart from the use of colour photography, this scene could have been one taken centuries ago! There is nothing to define the 21st century! Even the speed of movement doesn't equate with modern times ... as you refer to with regard to most of Naples!
    It's a beautifully composed photograph, giving excellent linear perspective, as well as interesting peripheral details. The two monks are a great focal point, providing a fine scenario.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Very nice b&w capture from Granada with those 4 vagabonds and their dog, fully in their typical own element.
    Who knows, maybe they have a far better lifestyle than ourselves !

    Hello Gert,

    A most interesting note to accompany your equally interesting photograph. It's a pity that the day was so wet for this happy, outdoor celebration but when bubbles are raining down, the atmosphere can only be light hearted!

    You are quite close to this girl, displaying her orange scarf, yet she is totally unaware of your presence, which I think helps the mood of the shot; she appears quite hypnotised by the bubbles! Love her position in the frame, too!
    Despite the weather, you have given us a clear and well saturated photograph.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
    p.s. Bosch seems much more humorous celebrating King's Day!

    Hello Rob,

    Is this a case of, 'Look at me! Count my rippling muscles!'
    I hope you pointed out that in Scotland just one man tosses a caber, not three!

    Joking aside, this is a very different photograph!
    The men, with their bronzed bodies and colourful shorts, make strong images against the dull-green, blurred background.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
