The much awaited season has finally arrived again as depicted with the lighting and composition it certainly gives a nice feeling. Attractive shot as the fabulous stinging red and spring colors at full bloom make this shot so vibrant. A great find and this is just wonderful day lifting the joyful spirit in serene surrounding. A cheery shot indeed, and thnk to your beautiful write up. Congrats, TFS.

A beautiful landscape, deep snow is always good value especially under the brilliant sunlight & colours and the title says it all. Nice crisp with the breath taking backdrop links nicely to the fg leading us into a nice scene. You have handled the exposure really well. Great capture, and TFS

Indeed an old village very well blended into the natural mountain environment. Contrast of white and blue strengthen the shot with the building adds a nice bit of colour breaker, crispy sharp, neat and bags of detail with greater dof. Superb shot worthy an effort. Congrats

A lovely snowy landscape here, Ney! Beautiful clear day and some wonderful blues in the sky and beyond the first row of peaks. I like the slope of the sot as well - you mention skiing, and this certainly evokes it. Thanks!

Well captured, Kasia - a really creative shot and concept! It really does look like something rising - a moon or planet more than a sun, but nevertheless. I love how the clouds separate this one - perfect timing. Thanks!

A beautiful looking cemetery, Stephen - elegant tombs, almost like small gothic cathedrals. This is something Europe does that has no real analogue in the US, except perhaps in New Orleans. Beautiful late light here casting shadows along the cobblestones. I'd love as well to see a closeup of some of these structures!

Technical 'oerfection' flies out the window in shots like these, Craig, and that's a good thing. Too much time spent choosing the right lens, working the angles, and you lose the great candid nature of the shot. This is a window into a moment in the lives of these guys, and it's a great one - lots of engaging action from everyone in the place. I applaud your bravery, too - I'm terrible at approaching people for shots like this, so I'm impressed that you're trying harder and harder to do so with your work. Thanks!

Bonsoir, cher Abmdsudi,
Une image parlante et fort bien présentée. La barque joue un grand rôle dans la vie quotidienne.
Le mouvement des rames, le contenu du bateau, tout est expliqué d'une bien belle façon à travers cette composition.

Très attractive composition de cette manoir. La portail semble de s'ouvrir directement vers la facade du rocher derriere comme l'entrée dans une cave. Les couleurs sont très attractive avec le petit touche de bleu du Visteria en fleur.
