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.

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.

What a coincidence! Just last night I wrote a critique on Craig's recent photograph which must have been taken from almost exactly the same viewpoint as yours and it is very interesting to compare the two images and appreciate just how two different photographers can "see" a scene differently and come up with two quite different interpretations!
This is a beautifully colourful photograph in which the boost to the colours is certainly made by the bright flowers in the close foreground and your tiny aperture (f/20) has secured an excellent depth of field and spectacular sharpness throughout.
A fine composition with lovely light, vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite clarity.

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.

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!

Hello Dear Takero - We see plenty of firework shots here on TE but I have never seen one like this; it's so original and really fascinating. The man must be very certain about what he is doing here, either that or very stupid! The sparks rain down all around him and have provided you with a superb opportunity.
An excellent, well managed and well realised image.
Bravo! and another bravo for the man!

Hello Malgo - What a marvellous travel story; you really are an inspiration and I admire the way you 'go with the flow'. I've seen a 'bird show' like this one once in England, they're very interesting. Your shot has captured a good double portrait. There are two aspects that I really like about the shot; the colour palette is naturally harmonious and the detailing excellent. I can see every pore and wrinkle in the man's leather waistcoat and the bird's feathers are crisply defined.
Nicely done dear friend!

This seems to have been taken from more or less the same position as Craig's posting the other day, although the lighting levels are somewhat different. I like the choice of the vertical format which helps create a lovely layering effect with the foreground flowers making a superb anchor point. The lighting is very pleasant indeed and the colours superb. A part of Italy I have yet to visit, it must be on my list. Thanks for sharing.

Such a simple framing but what an evocative image Luciano. The blue and white is classically lovely and the filigree patterns on the screen add exoticism. I can imagine sitting inside the room and hearing the lazy summer street sounds drift up to my open windows.
