Bonjour Jean Jacques
C'est original, d'habitude on les voit de l'avant, mais ton effet en contreplongée et les cailloux qui volent dans le panache de poussière sont là pour attester que la voiture n'était pas à l'arrêt! avais tu mis ton casque lourd?

This sort of street portrait - part of the urban scene, always gives such a flavour of the locale, filled by the vibrant colors with so much detail on her facial features while keeping the lady sharp in focus with excellent eye connection. Indeed lot of associated stories, i am sure coming out of the charming lady. It's a great lens work precisely timed while trying to isolate her as much as possible from the bg. I love the richness of colours but her sweet warm smile is most precious, turning this is to such a fine humanity subject. Great snap, Congrats.

Superb close-up portraying the distorted reflection on the water surface yielding an excellent effect. A cleaner shot with a wonderful wiggly bundled by the striking colors held together lending the painterly look with excellent reference point. It is wonderfully dynamic so well envisioned and captured with abstract quality. Well done.

An enjoyable layout when we are obviously drawn naturally to the gorgeous reflections and vivid colour of the boat. You strike the right notes aided by such brilliant light. Wonderful and pleasure to view, Congrats

A fascinating view how the fortress complex was built perched high up on the solid rock saved from intruders. Its so crispy sharp in focus, so delicate with bright colours showing off through the green environment and the rest of the shot is spot on both compositionally and exposure wise. Indeed a great historical sight of a fine piece of architecture and is something to behold, Excellent catch, TFS.

Glimpse into mini garden of eden in an attractive natural environment with the fiery red gives an appealing invitation to explore all the detail around. This indeed a national treasure so well captured and presented, Beautiful shot, Congrats.

What fascinates me about the citadel is the stunning location, perched high up on the solid rock and crispy sharp in focus. This looks fabulous so delicate with the bright colours showing off through the environment, indeed a great experience being there and so much more to absorb. Delightful shot.

What a great heritage, I am learning so much from your narratives of a well crafted and composed image providing us with much interest and enjoyment. Given the conditions, shutter speeds and view point, you have done a fab job in capturing the great specimen of the tribal woodwork with exceptional amount of detail - it takes time to look at this - so much to see. Beautiful warm interior and you did an excellent job with the exposure, lots of atmosphere captured too. It's a wonderful insight into the way it is. Great capture, Congrats

What an awesome site it is as the evening went on the sky fantastically on fire with fg interest on the modern bridge to complement. The beautifully design structure is very imposing must be screaming at you and temptation to capture is a hard one to resist giving this a real boost and the added colour in the background is a real bonus. Your approach is winning formula. Great catch, TFS

Hello Andrea - What a helpful and interesting note and what a superbly managed shot. There is so much gorgeous detail here. I would write more but I am stuck for time right now. Suffice to say... congratulations and welcome to TE.

Hello Roland - Unfortunately, when we visited Scotland, we didn't get this far north. I would love to see the Shetland Islands. Wild, treeless landscapes and a unique culture have a great fascination for me. Your shot is wonderful. The little croft is hunkered down as it tries to keep out of the wind and what a fantastic view it has looking out across the sea to the distant land. I like the inclusion of the red boat amongst all the natural colours and of course the small break in the clouds allows a few rays of light to dance across the water.

The long landscape size is well adapted to this scenery and the coming rain gives a grey hues to the bacground. The small island seems to prepare to withstand the storm, its pine trees looking as lightning rods.
nice soft colors.

I always notice the clothes in your Trim Haymaking shots Noel. They underline the Irishness of the photographs I think. This gentleman looks very dapper in his hat and jacket and is surely dressed for the festivities which take place in the beer tent!
You included a good slice of location here which sets the scene for the hay-tosser very attractively.
CLODO (28578) 2014-07-28 8:19
you seem to master well the photography and know what to do to get what you have in your mind. We don't feel it's an HDR shot (congratulations!) and you get mainly 2 colors: a bursting orange well lighted by the overall grey hues, except the white roofs reflections.
The movement of the wheel contrasts well also with the houses.

A perfect composition of beautiful soft blues combined with water Gunnar. What could look more tranquil than this? Even the small boat chugging across the water has a peaceful look and I can imagine a fisherman making his way home after a quiet day on the lake.
Evocative and beautifully realised; what a marvelous image for calming a busy mind.

Hello my neighbour John!
That's not street photography, but you still have a human presence.
Nicely spotted, pin sharp, with the orange bursting out of the grey sky, and the women dressed in black hooking on their mast. Though the exposure time is 1/2500s, the propeller of the higher plane is blurred, so giving the sense of motion yet given by the white smoke! But where is the plane N°1?

Hello Serge - The bridge is nicely placed within the frame and leads quite naturally to the buildings beyond. Isn't it amazing to see it still standing and serviceable after so many years? Good detail and I like the shady leaves which add a little extra detail and atmosphere.
CLODO (28578) 2014-07-28 7:26
I missed it, I should not take holidays! As always a B&W image with a human presence, and here taken at the right moment, enhanced by the many converging shadows of her legs. Her hair position, and the long step she produces indicates that she is in hurry.

Hello Sasa - The wide open blue doors and red lamp invite me to step inside this dimly lit interior. The white lace cloth, tiled floor and simple chairs give me the feeling that here I would be able to sample some authentic home cooking. What a pleasure and so much more enjoyable than a brightly lit generic restaurant.
A lovely shot!
