A very elegant structure, speaking of a time of chivalry and fine design. The way you have composed this would make me think this was part of a small town, not a large city. The placement of the red brick house at the far end adds a lot to the composition too.
Thanks as always, have a great weekend.

Beauty in a surreal form, these colors are just staggering. As Malgo says, the shadows are really beautiful too. Love how you composed the crest of the dune on thirds like this, we get to see up clo detail of big daddy, but also a wide expansive view of the landscape beyond.
Thanks as always

A very fine natural view, and I like how you allowed so much space for the river which looks almost like liquid silver. The combination of river land and sky also break the scene well into thirds.

A glancing moment, a second in the day of three people out of seven billion of us, and they never knew it was even happening. But we get to enjoy the result thanks to this most unusual form of photography which as you say can have surprising results. I am fascinated by this form of shooting, and have yet to capture an attempt of my own with any inferential, so always nice to learn from yours.

You live in such a beautiful place, it looks like the ideal combination of man made and natural. That cathedral is a stunning building and doubly so when we can enjoy this mirror like reflection. The long boats positioned as they make the scene contain so much depth it's almost 3d, I feel I could just walk right into the view. Beautiful colors and light all across too.
Thanks as always

Wherever there are people, a market will be nearbY and such has been the case for so very long. This is an interesting urban and daily life scene, and that is a fine bike for a tender! The expressions of th men present remind me of the horse fairs you sometimes see in Ireland.
All the best

I would have fused school books by looking at the unhappy face of the girl as she looks upon a year wot, spread before her :) another nice daily life capture, the sign is placed in a perfect prominent place.
All the best

I must wonder who has the better view, you or the parachute man! What Ana amazing plAce for such a sail through the air, the lines of the mountains like veins and the town a tiny little conurbation below. The parachute lends some beautiful vibrancy and color to the view.
Thanks as always

Ciao caro Luciano,
This really is a fun shot, so well captured with the diver caught spectacularly in mid-air!
I just hope that these young fellows know exactly what they are doing if, as you say, the water is quite shallow here.
A beautiful photograph, very well taken in lovely light and with fine colours, perfect exposure (using an appropriately fast shutter speed) and exceptional details and sharpness.

you have captured the moment that cash changed hands perfectly, it`s a fine street scene full of interesting characters each one playing their part in a beautifully composed photograph.
The gestures and discerning glances are an absolute delight.
Warm regards Les.

Beautiful and amazing nature. Since I have not yet been here and I can only campared with part of China in Huanglong and Yellow Stone in the U.S. it is spectacular the view from the high POV. Excellent quality and composition. The presence of a few people give a good sense of scale but not too many to be distracting.
I'm very conflicted with the signature of your name in such obvious place. I do that sometimes to protect the image from being abused by others. Maybe put it in the corner somewhere. If you want to put in the center of the image it would have to be less visible, at least not at the first glance. I know you wanted it to be visible enough that people don't just steal it.

your keen eye for an unusual photograph has come up trumps again,it`s not the usual sculpture by any stretch of the imagination but certainly makes a striking photograph with lots to peruse and enjoy if you can set your imagination free..
Best regards Les.

Bonjour Jean Jacques,
What a beautiful place you live! And what a beautiful photograph - just taken this morning!
Your composition is both classical and very pleasing to the eye, the cathedral lit beautifully in morning sunshine (it was raining this morning in Scotland!) and casting its reflections on the smooth glassy water of the Yonne. The colourful boats make a wonderful foreground feature and you have accentuated them very effectively by your use of a wide lens.
Gorgeous light and colours, beautiful reflections, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness - especially when viewed at its full size of 1500 pixels in width.

Ciao Costantino,questa è la spiaggia dei miei sogni,con un'acqua magnifica e trasparente e con pochissima gente,inizio Giugno o fine Settembre sono senza dubbio i momenti perfetti per visitare la Grecia,lo scorcio mi ricorda molto Alonissos.Buona serata e buon weekend,Luciano
