Ouch!!!! It always amazes me how anyone can possibly think that body art looks attractive, but that's personal taste fully respected. However it is something he obviously enjoys doing, so each to their own!! I reserve the art work I like for my walls. Still, it's given you a really stand-out portrait. Well captured.

Welcome back, This is just spot on terrific! Very crisp edges and really beautiful tones of this landscape. The waters are just brilliant, strong and it's a tasty shot taken from good pov to capture their majesty. An absorbing spectacle of mother nature and gorgeous colours throughout. A wonderful shot of a beautiful place, Congrats.

Hello Sayeed - Lots of tension and angst in this B&W shot. The young boy has a pained expression on his face.
Black and white is a great choice here. It cuts away any chance of colour distraction and underlines the quiet drama of the scene.

Hello Christiane - What a super viewpoint you found at the Cathédrale di Santa Maria Assunta. The architecture is stunningly beautiful and your shot shows off the rich details very well. I like the fact that we can see the leaning tower in context.
Gorgeous colours. One of the things that struck me most about this place was the 'lightness' of the buildings; they appeared almost weightless despite their size. I think your shot goes quite a way to echo the impression I got.

Hello Craig - Personally I like the softer details in the background view. The elderly lady is in sharp focus and she is the main attraction here. The location of the shot is secondary and the view is perfectly 'readable' without being overly intrusive.
Nicely composed with the lady very well positioned within the frame.

Hello Ann - I like the concept and the execution. The shot is nicely composed and divided into three distinct area of interest; together they give a super overview of the medieval fair. The reflection in the helmet is very nicely captured and I love the sharpness of the soldier's beard and chain mail. Backed by the softly rendered details of the tent which adds more context. Good choice of FL and very attractively managed DOF.
Hope all is well with the family
PS. Personally, I think the soldier is due a bit of a tongue lashing... his helmet could do with some spit and polish!

Good reaction in front of a new comic street scene, but the sharpness is not on the live man comparing his arm muscles to the statues ones. Moreover the sharp face of the man at the right edge is to eye catching and prevents from looking correctly at the scene (maybe you should have erased him by cloning the black plastic foil)---> see my WS

Nice crop on the sails, mast and different ropes and their shadows, the colored flag is well spotted in the top right corner.
The stairs at the background seems to help to climb up the mast!
Have a nice day

It is the striking multi colors within the street - cityscape really catch attention and remains one of the very photogenic spot in this famous city. The glittering light and colour add to the visual impact and perfectly contrasts to the night sky while the vehicles and people around suggest the sense of dynamism to this cheery night. Cool on the eyes! It's a pleasant night shot nicely done. Congrats anf tfs

Bonjour Jean Jacques
Péniches reconverties en bateaux de croisière, leur couleur jaune (éclairage par un spot?) est commune, et se détache bien sur le fond bleu du canal (ou le l'Yonne). La ville éclairée sur l'autre rive attend le crépuscule.
il en ressort une impression de quiétude, ce qui est bon pour s'endormir.

A tranquil autumnal landscape abound of captivating balmy light, detail and colours beautifully composed with extensive depth. Lovely how the overwhelming waterway and the lined trees force the eyes to explore in depth all the way into the distant while the awesome still water and its reflection break up adding the perfect touch to clinch the absorbing composition. This is an idyllic eye catching scene so subtly capture. Delightful, TFS

Hello Gildas - This shot is really about colour isn't it? The simple rustic façade with the roughly textured stone is decorated with simple, attractive and colourful details. Lots to enjoy here, well-balanced and attractive work.

Lovely shot in B&W György. I really like the contrast between the disciplined design of the gate, pebbled pavement and benches and the natural landscape. I wouldn't mind entering these gates of paradise!
Have a good week

A fine shot Claude. Your DOF has isolated the main subject from the unimportant backdrop and all the attention falls onto the distinctive 'style' of the man. The colour coordination is a visual delight. Not sure that I like the tattooed face but it makes for a great subject. I like the reflective glasses... don't they add a nice bright contrast!
Thanks for the link.

Hello Constantino - Your shot displays the elegant span of the bridge very well with its curve being emphasised by the flat lines of the sea. The delicate colours are harmonious. All-in-all an attractive shot.
