tak: podobalo mi sie wczorajsze i podoba dzisiejsze zdjecie :) Tym bardziej ogladam z przyjemnoscia ze w tym zakatku akurat nie bylem. Ale mialas wspaniale swiatlo i kolory w tym miejscu. W zasadzie nie ma na tym zdjeciu nic szczegolnego ale kombinacja chmur i swiatlo czynia z tego uczte dla oczu. Swietnie to skomponowalas z horyzontem w centrum a innymi elementami swietnie rozlokowanymi. Ludzie pozwalaja wyobrazic sobie skale miejsca.

it is indeed quite a famous spot and so popular in movies. However your composition is so creative that I wouldn't be able to recognize this place at all :) This is a great thing though I like such compositions which force me to think what is going on here...
Nice combination of this interesting display and the modern architecture behind.

pamietam ze wychodzilem na jakis szczyt w Tatrach Zachodnich ktory sie nazywal Granat, ale byla tak potworna mgla ze nic nie widzialem. Pamietam tylko taki dosyc kolorowy czerwony zleb przez ktory przechodzilismy.
Tak czy owak, znakomita fotografia z Tatr. Interesujaca kolorystyka, Mamy tu kilka warstw kompozycji.
Z prawdziwa przyjemnoscia oglada sie takie widoki,

even though it does lack some sharpness it is quite an impressive picture. Most of all the composition is brilliant. In this close up you managed to include an amazing crowd of interesting elements, it works very well together. The beam of light of course is literally a highlight and it makes us feel as if God was trying to point something out.
It reminds me my visit to Rome, quite a while ago in pre-digital times. I still regard Rome as the most beautiful city in the world, I really need to re-visit it now with the digital camera.

Well maybe I'm the first to congratulate you on digging out this little treasure. You know by now how much I like B/W images, and indeed street documentary shots, so this is a banker for me. Beautiful quality from this scanned neg too. Excellent.

Yes, I too wonder what he is doing. I thought from your previous photograph of this man and his shadow that he was just cutting out old mortar and replacing it with new: but if he is cutting a vertical groove, perhaps he is cutting a "chase" in which to bury an electric cable or something like that.
But here we see the man resting and surveying his work while his shadow keeps him company by enjoying a cigarette!
A very well captured shot with lovely bold and simple composition, perfect exposure and good tones, textures and contrasts.

Ciao caro Silvio,
Not a new photograph (almost four years old now) but a beautiful one showing us that snow will soon appear again in this town.
I love your fine composition, the wide archway forming the perfect frame for this image and the patch of snow leading us up the curving hill to smaller archways disappearing into the distance.
Beautiful soft light and fine natural colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

As always, you have written an interesting and fascinating note and provided us with a fine photograph to illustrate it.
The buildings above the canal's bank are interesting but their reflections in the rippled water of the canal are more so with their myriad colours and tones and very pleasing shapes and contours. I have to agree with Claude that the very bright area at bottom right might have been better cloned out or otherwise avoided but I like the bold composition, lovely soft light and remarkable colours.
And, once again, how on earth do you manage to take a picture at 1/6 second, presumably without a tripod? Maybe there was a railing there for support - or you have the steady hand of a surgeon? :)

Please do not apologise - the dog is quite enough without the child and scooter!
This is a beautiful photograph of this humble dwelling and it is made so much more attractive by the crumbling stucco on its façade as well as the rich warm tones of the underlying ancient stonework. Your composition is perfect with the archway with the dog passing it by perfectly placed in the frame and the line of colourful laundry above very nicely draws the eye upwards.
Beautiful soft light, fine rich colours, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.

Your photograph reveals a natural outcrop of rocks, a perfect place to build this imposing castle. Even after such a long history and now in ruins, it still creates a very commanding position.
Your exposure is excellent and the colours natural.
My warm regards,

Thank you for your extensive notes which I found most interesting and informative.
I can appreciate the extreme difference in moods that you experienced here, in tranquility, to the drama that is unfolding in your country!
This is tranquil.
There are horizontal layers of different colours and textures, all natural, which guide us smoothly from f/g to b/g. We move from the f/g shrubland to the arid volcanic slopes.
What a place to visit!
It is vastly different from Europe in every way!
Thank you for sharing this,

Ciao caro Silvio,
This is a most beautiful scene.
It reminds me of a scene from 'The Sound of Music'!
You have composed the photograph very well, so that the meadows of flowers seem to extend for miles and miles into the distance.
The figures add human interest, guiding into the b/g, where we become aware of the habitations and the rising mountains.
Thank you for this warmth on a cold, grey day in England,
