Ciao Caro Carlo,
The cypresses give the clue that this is in Italy!
The greenery creates a pleasing f/g and lovely introduction to the spectacle of the castle which stands tall and imposing.
Perhaps a crop of part of the sky would remove the slightly oe cloud and give a better thirds composition.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Missed this one. A pleasant diffused light with good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. Nice repetition of the grey stone chimneys and the patterns on the tower at right. Perspective has been well managed in this wide angled shot placing the vertical lines centrally. Tfs.

A superb aerial shot with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The 3 tongues of land add a graphic element and their darker tones contrast well against the lighter tones of the blue water. Tfs.

Nice reflections in the water with the fg vegetation adding a frame and providing depth and layering. Good sharpness and saturation. The bg layer of green trees contrasts well against the blue water. Tfs.

The light was not at its best for your recording of this special photograph but you have given it strength of composition to produce a photograph that is perfect for the mood and the occasion.
The flag looks particularly dramatic against the b/g of the mountains.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Here you are, with your remarkable ability to capture unsuspecting people in the street! Lots of facial hair characterise the two as well as being unaware of your presence. I particularly like the pose of the man on the left who appears to be popping out of his frame, like playing peepo!
Good use of shallow dof.
Have a good Sunday,
You are a very good grandfather, taking care of your grandchildren so diligently.

yes, I remember this place well.
good for you to ride out onto the water to get this shot.
the lighting is soft and exposed very well.
wouldn't change anything to the compo or the subject.

another fun photo from Cuba!
as with your previous photo, its all about the high point of view you took it from.
its almost as if you're about to jump into the water as well :)
Fun photo with the cultural activities.

Here on TE everybody knows about Lofoten and as you write, some people even were there. But when I said to other people I have been (or planned to go ) to Lofoten, they asked: Lofoten? What is it?
spectacular composition, with stunning sharpness but colours? It looks rather gloomy and even the red houses are almost non visible. But it is fun to show the same places in so different times and weather conditions.
I climbed the hill that is on the left side. The view was quite nice, maybe I will show it.
WArm regards Malgo
