Talk about a 'cutting edge'!
This is slicing the frame like a prow of a steel ship!
I particularly like the play of light on the surfaces, creating those love, curved metallic patterns, excellent for defining textures.
Have a great Sunday,

We learn so much that would otherwise be unknown, through TE!
The boat is a very important element in your photograph, creating a strong focal point and, also, helping to link the near and far banks of the river. You have created an amazing sense of depth as well as a congenial mood.
Have a good Sunday,
As a Lancashire girl, it's hard to admit just how beautiful North Yorkshire can be!!!

This is an irresistible trip through the landscape, following the well marked, strongly placed pathway, towards the sea. The trees are well placed and make a good focal point.
The ominous clouds play a big part in your photograph, creating a moody atmosphere.
Have a good day,

Good Morning Stephen,
Love the extra dimensional input, here; we have the lovely symmetrical, tiled exterior and, then, the scenes that are shown to us via reflections, as well as a peek into the interior of the pub.
A fine photographical experience!
Have a great day,

Another fine picture from this same building but this time of a window with a balcony. But, just like your last photograph, this one is also immaculately presented with beautiful light and colours, a fine strong composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

High drama here! I love your use of the foreground space. Many I'm sure would have gone closer, (or more likely zoomed in further: the lazy way to change the framing!), but they would have lost the sense of space, and the smallness of the figures fighting the wind and eating sand.

An interesting note and a brilliant candid photograph from the customs area of an airport in Cuba!
Not only is this lady customs official dressed rather sexily with her fishnet stockings, she is also posing in quite a sexy manner too and obviously enjoying her conversation with her male counterpart.
But this place also looks incredibly relaxed - I cannot imagine that you would be allowed to take out your camera and start taking photographs in the customs areas of any airport in Europe! Definitely verboten!
Despite the poor light and your use of a high ISO (3200) this phtoograph has turned out very well and has really captured the mood of the moment - so you can certainly be excused just a little noise in this picture!

A fine, pristine landscape, without any hint of human presence. If this were Europe, there would be a caravan site, and boats all over the lake! I like the slight under-exposure here: I don't know about you, but I always underexpose by 1/2 to 1 stop on the basis that it's easier to retrieve visual information from shadows than it is to recover burnt highlights. A memorable shot.

Although I don't think Royan is in Midi-Pyrenees, you've made a fine photograph of it, wherever it is! Of course it's the light that makes the shot work so well, and the fishing fleet looks safe enough in harbour, unlike the sea in your previous two posts! Good work.

An interesting grab shot, but I wonder what would have happened if you'd been spotted? I'm sure taking photographs in customs is usually at least frowned upon if not downright illegal. Uniforms: quite sexy as you rightly say!

Your archive is huge and I remain enthusiastic about your sharing it with us! This is a very interesting documentary shot, showing a scene which will have changed little in millennia. I wonder if life there still goes on in this way... I think I might have been tempted to "correct" that turquoise sky though.

Not a place to live if you haven't got a head for heights! And I'm a little concerned to hear that there are only a few of these houses remaining: did the rest of them fall into the ravine?? But this is a striking photograph, with an excellent viewpoint which makes the most of the steep cliff. Good natural-looking colours too. A well-crafted image.
