A really interesting "found" photograph. I suppose you could say that the design is the work of the shop window display artist, but you had to see it, realise its photographic potential, frame it and make it into an image. I like this a lot!

Now I like wine, so this photograph is close to my heart! You have chosen a good viewpoint that accentuates the perspective of the long lines of vines. I wonder what grape variety is grown here: I'm guessing they're a red grape variety.

For me the subdued colours, due to the "poor" light, actually enhance the shot: I'm made to look at form and pattern, which in the end is what this image is all about. But then I would probably have done a monochrome treatment on it anyway! Excellent graphic shot.

This is a lovely scene. I particularly like the contrasts between the dark, shaded foreground and the sunlit hills and valley beyond. The village is a not-quite silhouette against the mountainscape. Very attractive Winter scene.

Your patient and precisely clicked lends the feather friend an extra bonus to the overall pristine compo. Lovely calm effect that you have portrayed, indeed a picturesque lake filled by sublime colours, lighting and outstanding mirror reflectipons. Delightful take, Congrats.

A decent shot of this hardy looking tree exposed to the elements - fully agree with your statement- providing natural shades and shadow. But the shape is quite interesting too, and it fits into the compo effectively inviting viewers to explore the bigger area of the frame. The warm light, colours and exposure are spot on. Well doe shot, Congrats

Well you probably know of my predilection for monochrome images, so I was bound to be attracted by this photograph. You may have pushed the highlights a little more, but as it is, it has a convincing "olde-worlde" feel.

Great shot! Well seen, and of course I approve of the monochrome treatment. The framing is spot on, and I wonder whether this is indeed the full frame, or a crop. I also wonder if you've ever heard of the late great Ivor Cutler? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBpSWS31xYs&app=desktop) A true eccentric.

A lovely environmental portrait of a contented gentleman. The relaxed eye-contact is what makes it work for me. I tend to agree with you about the settings, but grab shots are often done with whatever settings happen to be there. I confess for street photography, I often use Auto settings...

An appealing colourful narrow street scene flanked by some old buildings with local flavour, crispness and excellent light control. You have a good eye for detail with good human element to finish of. Well done shot.
