Ah yes, I see it. Good diffused light and maximum shadow detail as a compensatory bonus for the overcast skies. It's possible to add a fake blue sky in photoshop, but you need to be careful of reflections. Grey reflections of a blue sky give the game away! Tfs.

Ciao caro Silvio,
I love your photographs of church interiors and this is a splendid one. An interesting note too.
The light here is delicious and brings out all the wonderful textures of the old stone floor as well as the details of the fine decoration of the ceiling and the golden altar. Wonderful light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

A splendid high and elevated pov with vibrant colour and nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue skylight reflected in the water and the red roof. There is a similar bridge at Middle Harbour in Sydney. Tfs.

Punchy light contrasts and the red roof at left contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The yellow streak at the bottom of the building enhances the effect. The cp has done its job admirably. Tfs.

Missed this one. The serene Chinese garden has been well captured. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The characteristic bright red painted buildings are typically Chinese. The design appears to be a fusion of several styles. The weirdly shaped limestone rocks buttressing many Chinese gardens are missing here. Tfs.

Bonjour Jean Jacques,
This is a wonderfully graphic and colourful image, very well seen and very well captured too!
Your composition is excellent and pleasing as well as very intriguing - it's a challenge to try to work out which parts of the image are actually "real" and which parts are reflections! Beautiful contrasting colours and textures and varying lines, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness throughout.

Nice repetition of the firescapes, which add an aesthetic as well as a practical element. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The yellow vehicle and the red brick buildings contrast superbly against the blue sky to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

Wonderful repetition of patterns shapes designs and colors in this superb wall mural with the passing woman animating the scene beautifully. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Effective tight framing and superb shadow detail. Tfs.

After travelling all day from Florence I arrived in Pisa right on blue hour and took advantage of it. The 4 very distinctive buildings, or perhaps 3, and their yellow red illumination, contrast well against the blue sky. Reasonably good sharpness in the fg getting better towards the back. Tfs.

A superb high pov with good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The fountain jet in the distance top right adds interest. The clocktower at left makes an excellent focal point. I like the symmetry of the 2 fg circles on the roof. Tfs.

Another fine shot from your excursion by the Lafayette galleries, this time with a woman's rather than a man's "silhouette" in the window.
Your use of a very wide lens has nicely exaggerated the perspective and what is intriguing is that we see a man on the right crossing the road but the reflection we see in the window is not of the man but of two people on the pedestrian crossing.
Again, lovely tones and contrasts in this monochrome image and stunning details and sharpness.

how is it even possible that I have right away spotted the tiny ad of the underwear?
Anyway I wonder if it was included on purpose. There is so much going on here. I like the column itself. It really motivates me to go to London again as I was there long time ago in pre-digital times.
May be next year...
Very original presentation from this famous square!

one more fantastic bird photo. They are extremely difficult to do well I can fully appreciate it as I have tried it a bit. Bird photography is probably the most challenging of all kinds.
Nice captured here with its reflection and with a nice pose.
Very well done!!

Nice deep blue skylight reflections in the Yarkon River which contrast superbly against the yellow shirt worn by one of the rowers. A similar scene could be spotted on the Yarra River in Melbourne. Well composed using the rule of thirds with reasonable sharpness. Tfs.

beautiful house and lovely garden. It seems like a wonderful place for a walk. You really travel across the whole country covering most of the counties on the UK map. I learn so much about Britain and get inspiration for my trips. Nice angle chosen here, this would make a fantastic postcard, exactly as I love it!
