I tried to comment on this a few days ago, but the site "died" or froze while I was writing, so I had to abort! I'll try again. The blue and white composition is of course classic Greece (or at least classic Cyclades); the lady in red however adds a completely new and welcome slant. I wonder if her appearance was mere serendipity. The colour scheme now reminds me of this recent posting by Ourania, though yours is sexier!

Having spent the last few years of my working life dealing with this awful disease, this is very much of interest to me. We are all familiar with the pink ribbon which you show so well in your workshop picture but I've not been aware of anything quite so striking as this fountain with its water all dyed bright red!
This is indeed spectacular and you have presented it perfectly in this very well composed photograph. The classic buildings make a fine background with a clear blue sky above and you have made the most of the pink/red by completely filling the foreground with the dyed water in the fountain bowl.
A very striking image with wonderful light and colours and amazing depth of field and sharpness throughout. And a very appropriate note too.

Splendida questa photo. Eccellente il PDV del basso che valorisa il pavimento. Una grande perspective e una bellissima cornice naturale con l'arco. Splendida la torre in sfondo, ottima le gestione della luce e l'inquadrature. Un grand lavoro, complimanti amico mio!

This is another wonderfully graphic black and white image which you have taken with your wife's stolen little compact camera. I love how the bright light makes the main vertical part of the structure gleam brightly and really stand out in comparison to the other parts. The strong composition and the light, tones and contrasts are superb and the little bit of background noise is surely forgiven considering that this was taken on a small early digital camera.
I love your note and your workshop picture too! How brave (or very silly) people were in the earlier days of photography and cinematography. One of my favourite film clips, from "Safety Last" with Harold Lloyd from 1923 was shot with no real safety equipment at all. In fact, you might find this article quite interesting!
An Excellent Photograph!

Beautiful wild scene. The thumbnail made it look almost abstract, and the full size image retains that feel. Gorgeous natural colours too. Were you at the top of the mountain when you shot this?

Very nice photo of Vancouver at the blue hour with beautiful reflections in the water. I will visit Canada next week but the East side and I'm going to meet our friend Serge in Quebec.
Have a good weekend my friend.
