This is one of those wonderful moments in photography where the weather significantly contributes to the result. Full of atmosphere and glorious colour. I also like the way that the rows of tulips converge in the distance.
Kind Regards, Ann

Hello Dear Serghei,
At the outset, I like the composition with the juxtaposition of a pair of fairly old planes. That is probably a DC-3 in the back, and the small jet fighter in the foreground. Eleu would know well.
It was wonderful to see you in Pasadena. Thank you for attending my lecture at the Norton Simon Museum. The following day, we traveled back to Los Angeles and flew to Las Vegas for two days. Then we returned to Los Angeles, and boarded a plane for Washington, DC. I continued onto Istanbul, where I am now. This afternoon at 3:00 pm local time (4:00 or 5:00 pm in Russia, 5:00 am in California) I must give a lecture. We have now met in 2013 and 2014. I hope we can make it a habit in the future.

Hi Eleni. To build such a house on such a spot requires wealth and political connections I would say. I am speaking from my knowledge of what happens in Dalmatia where rogues can do what they like. Maybe Greece is different. Whoever lives there has built paradise on earth. Happy Easter to you as well. Regards. Klaudio.

Salut Hervé. Je trouve cette photo un peu sombre et beau en même temps. Il reflète la triste histoire des naufrages et des conditions difficiles de la région côtière. Dans le même temps, la lumière et les teintes naturelles font une image raffinée. Le ciel sombre sur la terre ensoleillée augmente à l'ambiance mixte de tristesse et d'espoir. Meilleurs voeux. Klaudio.

Hi Olivier. I remember the impressive "walls" and also the meal we had in the restaurant (in the hotel in your photo.) It is a very good photo, not for the claustrophobic and shows the might of the river long ago to have carved a passage through solid rock. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Jason. Great depth to the image with the foreground anchored by the guy in red and the far distance anchored by the steeple/tower.The soft light gives the city a sense of quiet repose, even if it is a metropolis. Regards. Klaudio.

Salut Gigi. Delicate presentation in many ways- the overall soft colours, delicate shapes,fine textures and occasional bright spots of red. Lovely depth to the image and a well chosen POV. Excellent exposure.Amicalement. Klaudio.

Hi Jasmine. The deep shadows and the light accentuate the intricate shapes and the winged angels at the bottom seem to magically carry the whole canopy. A very creative capture of this fine devotional object. Regards. Klaudio.

This is a delightful and colourful photograph, perfectly composed with the cathedral spire perfectly placed, a lovely diagonal on the facades of the warehouses, fine reflections on the water and, of course, the two red buoys in the foreground topping it off nicely. Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. And all beneath a fine blue aky. What more could one ask for?
An interesting note too about this place. Am I right in thinking that these tall narrow buildings are no longer used as warehouses but have probably been converted into expensive apartments?
