Hi Brian - A bit different to flea-ridden student digs from my days! Lucky **gger*. I like the soft grey tones in this shot, they gives a delicate look to the scene. Lots of fine detail to investigate here.... I'll have the penthouse suite please!

Hello Claude - Something is not right here. You say the image has been degraded in upload and looking at this it is not up to you usual standard. I can see that the shot has a good subject and is well composed but for the rest????
Never-the-less deux points 'cos I like what I'm sure this should be!

Hello Stéphane - The subtle shifts in colours and tones is quite beautiful, what a landscape and how well your panoramic photograph describes it. Congratulations on a finely managed image. I like this a lot.

Buongiorno caro Carlo. Una composizione molto attraente con le scale aggiungendo una linea diagonale in contrasto alle linee verticali generale dell'architettura. Bellissimi i colori ed i dettagli sono interessanti e ben catturato. Il mio unico piccolo prenotazione è nitidezza; sul mio schermo il tiro sembra molto 'soft', che è un peccato.

Hello Matthew - The tower makes a super subject, it has fairy-tale qualities. From my point of view, I think it would be nice to see a little more detail in the lower part of the shot, you could do this by lightening the mid-tones. The lamp post is a distraction but by moving yourself a bit you may have been able to place it on the vertical third line rather than having it almost dead-centre.
In any event a very good effort with good colour and crispness.

Hello Diane - I love the atmosphere of this beach side scene. The mistiness encourages walking rather than sun-bathing or swimming and many people are out enjoying a relaxed walk on the sands. I do like the depth you present here; the closer to you lens the clearer the figures contrasting with the softer more distant ones.
Did you use a long lens for this?

Hello Sasa - I like the distressed looking old walls, they add character and a feeling of history to the building. A straight on composition would have allowed you to work with the flower pots more easily but then we would have lost the corner view of the house and the antennae would not have been displayed so well.
Attractive colours and textures here, nicely seen.

Hello Cricri - We only passed Viareggio on the train and I did not realise that it had so many good beaches. As you say, this is a magic moment. Two couples enjoy the last of the day's sun, holiday memories are made from moments like this.

Hello Stephen - These large wheels seem to be springing up all across the UK. This one sandwiched between the gentrified buildings of the Albert Dock would be interesting to ride if the views are as expansive as your note describes.
Liverpool has changes so much since I was last there (many years ago) from what I see in your collection of photographs, I think it is time to visit again!
Another interesting shot in your series.

This is THE TE influence! 100% in accordance with your monologue!
The girl stands out because she wears a red cloth, contrasting well with the surroundings, she is at a strong point of the picture, the white wall is a perspective leading to her and we see her face.
But you continue your way to discover a the white back of a man half hidden. If you remove it (cloning), then our eye remains and the lady (see the WS).

we don't feel it's night, the hues are too light, you have to darken this picture by PP in each color cyan, blue, red, grey and black or play with the curves.
I post you a WS donne according to the darkening mood.

Lovely deep view along the narrow alley portraying the typical blue and white houses full of details, good colours, superb clarity and the charm. A characterful little sight so well shot, indeed a great place for photography. Excellent capture, Congrats
