You have succeeding in constructing an interesting and attractive graphical composition from this line of colourful beehives. The presence of the bee-keeper is a bonus and he is ideally positioned in the frame. A nicely illuminated image with excellent colours and clarity.

This looks as if would have been a very effective protection entrance to the city.
Your viewpoint creates a fine sense of depth from the converging lines of the walls, adding importance to the focal building.
It was a beautiful day for your photograph, where you have captured rich colours and sharp details.
Have a lovely w/e,

A well constructed image with excellent colours and clarity. I like the red/green/yellow tonal contrasts and the well rendered textural detail. Presumably this rather curious sounding railway had some sort of logical commercial purpose when it was built.

You have created a fine impression of the interior of the palace. From my experience of castles, this doesn't seem to have grandeur beyond its station.
Your composition creates a fine sense of depth and perspective.
You have coped admirably with the difficult task of an interior shot.
Have a great w/e,

Suffice to say, Northern Ireland is the one country in the UK I haven't visited so I have never seen the Giant's Causeway 'in the flesh'. Your close-up shows its 'construction' to great effect. Very good rendering of the colours and the textural detail. Thanks also for the very informative note.

Thank you for the lovely postcard and the link. It's hard to imagine so many people squashed into the square to watch the race. Wow, it must have been full of atmosphere!
I like your more serene mood, personally. You have done a fine job of moving from the shadows into the sunlight of the city. The tower of the Duomo makes a great focal point to guide us into the m/g.
Have a lovely w/e,

An excellent presentation of this impressive city gate. I like the direct angle of view and the use of the finely detailed roadway to draw the viewer into the scene. The rich red tones of tile and brick make a superb contrast with the saturated blue sky. Top class technical quality.

Anybody would be delighted to receive such a postcard! A superb panorama over this beautiful city from a well chosen vantage point. Lovely warm lights and colours and excellent rendering of all that beautiful architectural detail.

This is such an amazing place.
It is no surprise that the ancient people tried to find an explanation for its presence!
We normally see the hexagonal patterns from above but you have taken a completely different approach and given a whole new impression. They look like Nature's pillars!
As you say, the only real downside is that there is nothing to add scale but, despite that, this is a very well composed and executed photograph.
Have a good day, Bev :-)
