Ciao Silvio. A charming image with beautiful light augmenting the textures of stone and tiles. Nice to see the bright colours of the geraniums and bougainvillaea. The soft green background adds to the charm of the scene by providing a soft touch. Ciao. Klaudio.

Hi John. The animals in the shad look like sheep, but to me this one looks like a goat. As for the shepherdess, maybe she could do with a little shearing. Anyway, she looks like kind soul. Nice portrait of an individual who knows and respects Nature. Interesting note. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Stephen. Pity about the food, but it is best to find out where the locals eat- what the locals call un posto carino. Elsewhere it's about getting the most from tourists and giving the least. Great light and an inviting atmosphere. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi John. And a good day was had by all! Nice POV- i mean in the overall sense. Great light and natural palette. I wonder if the blue paint was on the original structure of the 19th century. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue colors within the stained glass window, accentuated by the caramel hues in the fg. Good sharpness and saturation. I might have vertically cropped some of the dark space at right. Tfs.

I think it might be a kid, or baby goat. The Rastafarian blond hairdo of the woman is eyecatching. Good sharpness and excellent use of a shallow dof. Superb shadow detail on her face despite the lack of light apart from her nose. The dark deeply shadowed bg makes a fine contrasting graphic element with the sunlit fg. Tfs.

The lighting is just perfect here and reveals every textural nuance in the walls. Good sharpness and fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red roofs and yellow and pink facades of the buildings. The people at left animate the scene. Tfs.

The mirrors give this image a kaleidoscopic effect and add an element of repetition. Good sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. The 2 globes resemble giant pearls. Tfs.

Looks like a larger version of Pashuputinath in Kathmandu. I passed, when the restaurant downstream offered fresh duck that could be seen swimming in the river adjacent! The red and blue colours contrast strongly here. The people and the cow animate the scene. Tfs.

A splendid shot of the picturesque fishing boat and harbor with ideal saturation an good light contrasts. Excellent sharpness and well composed. The watchful seagull top right animates the scene. The diagonal pier provides dynamism. Tfs.

Good density levels with excellent repetition of the grave stones and good sharpness and light contrasts. Superb saturation and the dark green tree against the lighter toned sky adds a fine graphic element. The US flag makes a good focal point. Tfs.

The red poppies set up a wonderful warm cold colour contrast against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and the ploughed and contoured fields at right add strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs.

A splendid sunrise shot with the rising mist adding mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good warm cold color contrasts between the fiery orange and the cooler grey blue tones of the shadowed mountains. Excellent sharpness and effective tight framing. Tfs.

Fine repetition of the circular and semi circular shapes of the domes interspersed with smaller circles in the wall design. A superb upward pov with good sharpness & effective tight framing. The crescent moon shape is eyecatching. Tfs.

Missed this one. It's actually in Vatican City so if you want to, you can add another country to your gallery map, & it's easy to edit the location. But the train from Rome goes right into the city within a city and there is no clearly defined border. Good sharpness and the distinctive dome of St Peter's makes an instant focal point. Tfs.

Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the water with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Well framed and composed. The breathing space at each end of the island enhances the shot and the mountains make a fine backdrop. Tfs.

This genre of stained glass window photography can be difficult to correctly expose but you've succeeded admirably here. Good color and saturation with excellent sharpness. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs.

A good downward pov on the ruins gently falling away to the plain below. The cleared bare, earthy colored grain fields at left contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and excellent textural details in the wall at left. Tfs.

Europe is most certainly a genuine treasure trove for impressive religious art and here is yet another superb example, this time in Hungary. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The diffused light works well here. Tfs.
