this is just perfect! I like very much the mountains here, snow covered and set against the blue sky! The colors are so well saturated and natural! At the foothills of the mountains there seem to be still the autumn with typical autumnal tree colors! I like the fence in the foreground which cuts in nicely together with its shadow, you have used it beautifully.
Everything is very well thought through!
Excellent work, it is pleasure to watch it!

This is just great, a completely different vision of Dubrovnik. We can see the busy street down there, probably full of tourists buying souvenirs and then the cat, alone at the top, trying to stay away from all that and rest a little. Perfect composition and a well managed light!

There is every reason to worry about which way Turkey is heading. The optimism of a only a few years ago is gone. It is most sad and the development has made me very disappointed. This is a fine photo, very well composed and with superb colours. The rolling waves, coming and going, could be seen as symbols of the uncertainty today.

This photo is quite lovely. The birds are magnificent and you caught two of them at a very fine moment. The narrow slice of land they are standing on is perfectly balanced by the white streaks of salt and the water on each side of them has two beautiful different blue tones. The hillside in the background doesn't add much but was probably necessary to explain the scenery.

This is a lovely portrait with perfect sharpness and colours. Most of all it's a photo from a good angle. I am not sure if the horse is actually looking into the lens (probably not), but at least we can imagine that you established a close eye-contact. I don't have much experience of horses but I am sure they care very much for company and friends. I remember from my childhood in the countryside that grazing horses usually came up to me if I was standing by the fence. The fine background is another advantage of this photo.

Yet another thing which you and I have in common! For years I have wanted to learn to play the organ. Like yourself, I play the piano (though I play it rather badly) but unfortunately I have now reached an age at which I find it difficult enough to try to co-ordinate two hands and so co-ordinating two hands and two feet at the same time would probably be impossible.
I love photographs of the interiors of churches, cathedrals and other fine buildings and you have provided us with a trio of three wonderful images, all of stunning quality and with glorious light and colours and amazing detail.
P.S. Did you hear this organ being played? I could just imagine how wonderful it would be to hear this beautiful interior resounding to a Bach Prelude and Fugue!

Ah, ha, let me see. Now I think that the clock on the right side is the "correct" one and the one on the left is showing the wrong time because this, presumably, is the west door of the cathedral which we are looking at and the shadows of the people suggest the sun is in the southwest and so it is some time between noon and 6 p.m. And, secondly, your exif data state that you took this picture at 14.42, exactly the time on the right clock. :)
Anyway, enough of my detective work. As always, your note is both informative and fascinating and you have shown us a beautiful photograph of this lovely building against a backdrop of a wonderful blue Mediterranean sky with high puffy white clouds. The surrounding buildings are attractive too and the colourfully dressed people milling about in the square in the foreground add human interest and scale.
Lovely light, fine rich colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
