Good sharpness and nice repetition of all the boats. Good reflections in the water with superb saturation. The beach babes in the fg bottom left are easy on the eye. The red color of the SAt Laurent breaks the pattern of white boats very nicely. Tfs.

Icarus was a high flyer who not only lost his head but also his feet! Perhaps his pants too! The strong backlight has been well managed and the sculpture fits in with the bg ruined temple. The people in white attire add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and graphism. The image is well composed. Tfs.

A superb high pov with good sharpness and excellent mood and atmosphere imparted by the mist and clouds. The dark forested slopes add a good graphic element. Excellent colour and saturation. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs.

Wow, this is just wonderful. I love these types of subject, nothing gets near them for me. Nothing manmade that is. I love the rich golden tones, the clarity and the note. Any idea how old these babies are? Absolutely fascinating, thanks for sharing.
Warmest wishes to you and yours
PS; Thanks for your well-wishes for the family. Mum and Dad are ok, but just getting old. As Dad says, "I'm ok, but I'm not beautiful any more". Typical Italian hehehehe.
Lit a candle for you and your lady love today. I think of you both often.

Again the colours are incandescent and the way you managed the light is truly impressive. The castle looks quite tiny by European standards, but it is no less beautiful. The yellow and deep green colours are a feast for the eyes.
Excellent work, thanks for sharing

Bonjour cher Gildas
My mouth is now watering at this delicious image. I can imagine these fresh, tasty products in a Boullabaise? Wonderful colours and textures. The tight framing is superb. Excellent shot, thanks for sharing and have a beautiful weekend.

Gidday dear Will
Thank you so much for the present! What a beauty it is too, one that even Charles Darwin I'm sure would be enchanted with. The panorama is perfect for demonstrating the sheer size of the Valley and of course how unspoilt it is. Fingers crossed, it remains so. At the moment, there are companies wanting the frack national forest nearby for Coal Seam Gas. It makes me so angry I could cry.
Warmest wishes and thanks for the photie.

Ahhh now you're just showing off! This is magnificent, how did you get these magnificent birds to pose like this for you? Don't tell me you've turned your hand to kite-whispering now? A superb and natural dance of nature, impressive shutter control (had to be careful how I typed that) and wonderful vivid colour. An image that would knock the socks off the stuffed shirts in the camera club.

Ola dear Alexandre
I knew that Brazil (and Argentina) have a large Italian migrant population, but did not think that Brazil had a thriving wine industry. So your photo is not just beautiful, it is informative. I love the long exposure and the light trails. There seems to be a strange reflection in the middle of the frame in the foreground. It looks like the ghost of the wolf you suckled Romulus & Remus. Or maybe I have had too much wine ;) Very good photo, thanks for sharing.

Hi Karolina. Nice metaphor for Life, the path that one has to travel. I like the look of this B&W as it has the feel of a photo developed in the darkroom.Remind some of my darkroom creations of long ago. Bravo. Klaudio.

Hi jean. The swans themselves could be mistaken for floating bits of snow. Lovely image in which most things are white. Birdlife is plentiful and their presence enlivens the otherwise still and hibernating winter. Excellent POV by which the dark body of water creates nice contrasts. Regards. Klaudio.

Wonderful textures Maciej. Brilliant light, lovely colours. Even the sky with the fine network of of clouds seems to have an intricate texture of its own. Good us of parallel lines diagonally and vertically. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.
