Kalispera dear Chris
An interesting, intricate and beautifully designed subject. The tight framing works well and I like the warm colours, which are very inviting and attractive. A lovely place to take a drink of cool water. Nice work, thanks for sharing.

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. La Nikon permet de pousser les ISO a un très bon niveau sans trop de grain et c'est le cas ici avec cette belle fontaine.

You're capturing well this traditional fountain by a good angle and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the fountain with cold fresh water. It is interesting that there are two faucets on architecture with good design, too.

The bright water fountain stands out within the setting and well composed. An interesting historic structure, you have captured the motion in the water perfectly in the warm light which is so appealing to me. Interesting to read the notes too, you spotted the opportunity so well and captured the moment pretty skilfully. A very well executed night shot, Well done. Congrats

Nice subject and light rendering this fountain in golden colors. Just lack some focus.

From the note I recon the water here on the fountain has a miracolous effect, Chris.
Night shot with a perfect sharpness, and good light upon.

Nice shot with this pleasant golden light, interesting subject, pity that the sharpness isn't top, difficult with this strong contrast, tfs.

A light giving a very nice texture and color to the stone. Well done

la fontana è molto interessante, la luce calda ne enfatizza le linee classiche, peccato manca un pò di qualità.

interesting the shapes of this fountain. I liked the elements and the contrast between the golden light and the darkness around. sharpness could be improved.

Nice look at these traditional fountains, the golden tones make them feel and look even more antiquated. The simple things often make for beautiful images. Good recognition and presentation of the rustic and defined slice of daily life. Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend.
