Your perseverence has clearly paid off. This is a lovely moment that you've caught. The mum's photo will obviously be a nice snap of her kids, but yours is a much more interesting moment for the rest of us. I'm tempted to repay the compliment by saying I'm reminded of Martin Parr. But your work is not so cruel or bleak!

Beautiful scene, with very little evidence (at least in the frame) of modern development. That excudes the holidaymakers on the beach of course. I wonder if there's been any more development in the five years since this was taken. Or indeed if there's a high-rise just behind you! A lovely Summer holiday image.

Lovely evening light in this one, which warms the foreground and beautifully contrasts with those threatening dark clouds. There's something about fishing harbours, isn't there? In some ways, they're the same all over the world. The details on the quayside and the boats remind me very much of my home port, or little fishing villages in Cornwall. Good work.

Magnifique panorama sur Aalesund avec une grande netteté et de superbes couleurs. Fantastique la lumière et une très grande profondeur aussi. J'aime beaucoup!
Merci pour le partage.

Magnifique paysage de Norvège sous le ciel bleu! Un très bel alignement de ces architectures colorées avec de superbes reflets. Les couleurs et la lumière sont splendides. Très joli l'inclusion des fleurs en premier plan. J'adore!

Ciao caro Silvio,
You have written a very interesting note about this place and also given us a lovely photograph by way of illustration.
Your viewpoint and the lighting here is lovely but, as others have remarked, there is quite a bit of "noise" in the image. I've done a very quick workshop in an attempt to reduce the noise a little - I hope you don't mind my doing that - but see what you think.
Apart from the noise, this is a lovely image - perhaps just a pity that you didn't have your "big" camera with you when you took this - I am sure that your D700 would have coped with the poor light and a high ISO much better.

This is lovely.
The softly reflected clouds in the f/g set the scene of a natural calm. The repeating sand bars act like steps, guiding viewers into the landscape, terminating with real clouds, which complete the scene.
My warm regards,

This is superb blue hour/night shot.
Your slow shutter speed has used all the available light to illuminate the riverside line and the cathedral and give them a sparkling appearance against the rich blues of the sky.
The clarity is excellent.
Have a lovely day,

Hello again Mariusz,
I was directed to this one from your most recent post and I see that I have also commented on a previous one of yours from this place.
Just like your other two photographs of General Bem's Mausoleum, this one is a delightful shot which has a wonderfully serene quality to it, probably chiefly on account of the wonderfully calm reflections of the structure in the glassy water of the lake. I fact, I'm wondering if you might have used a polarising filter for this one as we can also see through the water into its depths where the lovely green plants in the lake shine through to add to the foreground interest. The mausoleum itself is beautifully lit and stands out beautifully against the dark and moody sky.
An interesting note too.

A very well observed daily life shot.
You have positioned the fisherman strongly so that his rods make a lovely diagonal into the frame and act as leads to the boat.
I wonder if the boat caused disturbing waves and spoilt his fishing opportunities.
Have a lovely day,

Make no apology for the lighting here: whatever the light was like, you have made the very most of it to produce a stunningly beautiful photograph of this very imposing mausoleum to a great Polish man. And you have also written a very interesting and informative note.
The monument stands out beautifully against the light blue sky and the reflections of it in the calm water are delightful. Your composition is excellent too with the little spray of bright red flowers holding the foreground together perfectly.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and, as always, impeccable details and sharpness.
P.S. Thank you too for including a map - I was able, with the aid of the "little yellow man", to see this mausoleum through the trees from the roadway!
P.P.S. I see that I have already critiqued the "second" shot to which you refer in your note - I shall now go and write something about your "first"!

I love this picture of the iconic bridge. I travelled over it last year but didn't manage to photograph it. The light is impressive and the red colour really stands out. The disturbance in the water has given some very lovely and interesting reflections.
Kind Regards, Ann
