Ciao caro Silvio,
You have shown us quite an in depth view of the church.
For an interior, it does seem to have quite good light, which has helped to reveal the patterns and mural.
I love those pillars and, in your composition, they lead nicely into the b/g.
Have a lovely day,

A fine photograph and a very interesting and informative note to accompany it.
I very much like your composition and the way you have used the overhanging foliage of the trees to provide a very effective frame in which that very attractive open bell tower, sitting rather strangely atop a massive square tower, is perfectly placed while in the distance we see an equally attractive round defensive tower. The soft light on the roofs and old walls of the town is delightful, your colours true, the exposure perfect and the details and sharpness exquisite.

A good addition to your series.
Your intention to display the beauty of the artisan's work has been successful.
You have revealed the patterns and the patination in this sharp, tight crop.
Have a good day,

We are so used to seeing Greek style columns that to see ones in this style has a big impact. They are very solid and functional.
You have undertaken a difficult shot here, with such light differences, yet the cave impression is strong and the features clearly visible.
Your composition fits the shapes nicely.
What a great sight seeing adventure you had!
Have a good day,

Gosh, I fear that even more people have deserted TE, or at least fallen asleep, because this photograph deserves a lot more attention than it has so far received - not only is it a very appealing photograph but your note is fascinating and informative and also a fine tribute to the brilliant and courageous engineers of the early 19th century. But I must admit that I felt (on account of my acrophobia) my toes curl just a little when I read about (and I can also verify the fact in this picture) that there were no railings on the side of the canal opposite the tow-path - has anyone ever fallen off the deck of a boat into the valley below by accident and not intent?
Anyway, this is a very fine and well composed shot with a lovely personal touch too. How nice to see your long-suffering Rosemary, comforted by your dog, in the bow of the narrowboat while in the distance your son and daughter expertly navigate from the stern. The strong diagonal composition is excellent and the view of the countryside around about is delightful and also gives a very good impression of the height above terra firma.
Beautiful soft light, lovely true colours, perfect exposure and exquisite depth of field and sharpness throughout.
P.S. A lovely workshop photo too - the light is just fabulous in that one, beautifully soft and with an almost dream-like quality!

Ciao caro Carlo,
I like very much this rather novel composition - not the way we normally see vineyards or vines!
But I think this photograph works very well with the strong diagonal composition. The colours are amazing, the greens and yellows of the vines contrasting beautifully with a lovely blue sky. Excellent details and sharpness too.

wspaniale widoki, zadziwia mnie moja ignorancja. W ogole nic nie wiem o poludniowych Wloszech. Mialem kiedys kolezanke z Bari, moj kolega byl na postdocu w Lecce i to jedyne miejscowosci poza Neapolem (no i Pompejami o ktorych spiewal Kaczmarski) oktorych slyszalem. A tu taka niespodzianka!
Przecudny punkt widzenia i widze to miejsce chyba po raz pierwszy w zyciu! Ten kosciol z kopula po prawej dodaje czegos charakterystycznego tutaj.
Tak dawno nie bylem we Wloszech!

yes I remember the satisfaction of being in places which were later featured in a movie, I supposed New Zealand is more and more popular movie filming destination. Time to go there :)
Fantastic rain forest photograph. I like the moss covered trees and ground. It is very particular view, and so unspoiled here.
mkamionka (38385) 2016-10-23 13:27
beautiful night shot. I like the repeated element of the table, they also have the whole variety of colors. I suppose although it is night time people will arrive later.
Very stylish houses, it must be a lovely place for an evening stroll. I like in particular the star shaped lights.
mkamionka (38385) 2016-10-23 13:23
nice street scene indeed. This is one of the views which I always promise myself to take walking in a strange city but I never do. When I am there it feels quite normal but looking at it here I spot so many elements which are quite characteristic for America which makes it different and interesting for Europeans.
Very well captured,
mkamionka (38385) 2016-10-23 13:20
this is nit the first time I spot a beautiful woman in your photo, who is just looking at you. People certainly add a lovely touch here, some feeling of action. I like the bright light day, it feels as a real summer. The salmon colored motorbike is a very sweet element in the foreground.
Lovely harbour scene,
mkamionka (38385) 2016-10-23 13:06
I have been on the same ferry.
This place is so beautiful! Myonly regret is that I have spent there way too short time.
The quality if this one is not optimal but it is a nice souvenir of the amazing trip.
I hope you enjoy your current excursion,

At first again I thought it is just some ice on the river, but then I have spotted the people and buildings on the horizon and then I got the scale of this place and my jaw has dropped in awe. Amazing place, fantastic natural colors of the ice in particular.

This must have been an exciting time to watch all these magnificent sailboats in your harbour and see all the frantic activity around them.
This is a beautifully colourful photograph with lots of interesting things to look at - from the magnificent boats and the numerous colourfully dressed people on them to the little rubber dinghy speeding through the water.
The light and colours are divine and that large orange sphere on the nearest boat really holds the whole composition together very effectively. Perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

Ciao caro Carlo,
Si tratta di una composizione molto tagliati corti, ma funziona molto bene, dando un senso tangibile di potere di Geremia, mentre domina la chiesa con la sua potenza f / g.
Anche il cielo sembra celebrare il suo potere, come le nuvole si irradiano come un alone celeste!
I miei cordiali saluti,
Royaldevon (40316) 2016-10-23 10:22
Now, this is unusual!
I don't think I've ever seen such an exhibit at a railway station!
The long legs are very useful, for they lift the main body of the sculpture to ceiling level, where it is seen against a b/g which is quite unobtrusive, though very pleasing in its design.
Your good composition has both trunk and trumpet guiding into the upper corner.
A fine artistic photograph of a very unusual artistic site and exhibition.
My warm regards,
Royaldevon (40316) 2016-10-23 8:29
Those dinghies couldn't have been better placed to create a colourful introduction to your photograph and to the fisherman, who is very well placed in the frame.
The bridge makes a great separation line, behind which, the congregated masts look like a forest of bamboo.
My warm regards,
Royaldevon (40316) 2016-10-23 8:24
You made a good choice to have this as your main post.
It is a shot with action, contemplation, great light, a glorious view and a parachute which is complementary in colour, opened in a graceful arc and perfectly positioned in the frame.
I like that you have three figures in the shot.
One is creating the action but the other two are completing the triangle and helping to draw attention inwards.
My warm regards,
Royaldevon (40316) 2016-10-23 8:15
Ciao caro Luciano,
Thank you for all this interesting information.
Surely, evidence like this will make the world leaders more intent on preventing global warming!
However, your photograph is amazing!
The icebergs look to be moving rapidly in the current. Is that a boat peeping from behind one of the icebergs?
The view of the vehicles and tents gives us a good sense of the scale.
A very 'different' well exposed photograph.
My warm regards,
