Two fabulous photographs which hark back to your earlier days when modern architectural photography was your main theme.
I like this one with the modern Aqua Tower reminding me more of a CD rack than of ocean waves, but that's probably just down to my lack of imagination. Your close viewpoint and use of your wide "city" lens has given lovely strong perspective and I like how the upper reaches of the tower are starting to blend into the fog and mist. And, despite the soft light and fog, you have come away with some lovely contrasts and textures.
But, do you know something? On balance I definitely prefer your workshop picture with the tops of the tall towers - and those in the background - swathed in mist and fog. I simply love that one! For me, that fog would have made my day and I would have been happy snapping away at it all day long! Perhaps you already have enough fog in Vancouver but I'll guess you'll probably see plenty of it in Scotland too.

Every lad dreams of playing with a toy train set, at least they did in my young days, perhaps not so much nowadays. Excellent capture of this miniature railway. Well exposed and making good use of differential depth of field. Fine colours and clarity.

This kind of store wouldn't interest me but I know that you ladies can never have enough handbags or pairs of shoes - my wife would love this place! And I can imagine this shop is quite expensive too!
You have presented this photograph superbly in a fine bold and strong composition with the handbags and shoes prominent in front of the background of, presumably, old vinyl records.
Lovely soft light, good colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

A fascinating and informative note and a magnificent photograph to accompany it!
I love the bold presentation which not only obeys all the classical rules of composition but which is also very pleasing to the eye. Thee deep reds of the lighthouse and its neighbouring house stand out stunningly against the rich green grass and the lovely blue sky. Perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Ciao caro Silvio,
A fabulous photograph of a gorgeous scene in Castelluccio just yesterday and with so many levels to ponder and enjoy - from the colourful foreground meadow flowers to the glorious sky above and with the trees, the flat green plain and the spectacular distant mountains between them.
A view which perfectly captures the beauty of this region of Italy in late springtime with beautiful light, fine vibrant colours and exquisite depth of field and clarity.
