Hello dear Constantino,
This 3-mast sailing ship, "the barque," is especially beautiful in that it is a reconstructed version of a historical boat. Without the power boat speeding by, this could have been a painting from the 19th century. Lovely composition and exposure.

I have been watching the FIFA Women's World Cup, and I've known about the hellish temperature. Especially on artificial turf the temperatures were around 130° F (54° C) and the player rubber cleats were melting. I think this photo would have been most inviting for the players. Very nice photo, kids being kids, cavorting in the cool water of a fountain.

The composition, sharpness, colors and textures all collaborate in this lovely photo. The placement of the arch leading into the city, and the high hill in the distnace are strong focal points. The note, as usual, is first rate.

It was in 1983 that we visited Kyoto the first and only time. I see that the rails are slightly tilted, perhaps to allow some trains to pass through without stopping. But the curve of the tracks leads the eyes to a vanishing point. It's very effective.
Warm regards, Serghei,

A superb areal shot of the dreaded Mig-15. I remember it well, and I remember when an Iraqi pilot defected to Israel with the first Mig-15 that the West was able to get its hands on. In a program I watched recently, they said that in taking the plane apart, the engineers found that it was not really superior technologically to the US fighters of the time, but it was in the training the pilots received.

What a superb portrait, and what sympathetic face. My only constructive criticism is to crop the photo 10-15% from the right side. According to a discovery by the British born American psychologist Dr. Christopher Tyler, in all great portraits, one eye of the subject (here the left eye) should be on the perpendicular bisector. This is never taught in art schools, and yet the Masters through the ages have painted portraits that way — Leonardo's "Mona Lisa," self-portraits of Rembrandt, and even Picasso's "Portrait of Dora Maar."

voilà un cadran solaire qui mérite d'être présenté, excellent cadrage, la netteté et les teintes sont bonnes, moins lisible que des chiffres, il fallait une certaine habitude pour lire l'heure ...

Avec tes photos et tes critiques tu est un des fidèles de TE, j'ai toujours plaisir à regarder tes vues ... déjà plus de 2500 ! Jolie prise ici avec ce dôme vue de l'intérieur, pas facile d'avoir ce type d'architecture en entier, ton option de cadrage est intéressante, la netteté parfaite comme l'exposition.
