A fascinating note about this old central part of a town which around it has undergone development, expansion and development - and it is lovely to see this old part preserved, whether that be for its use as a film set or simply to preserve some elements of the past.
You have captured this scene perfectly and with perfect timing too, just as the old man passes down the upper part of this stairway beneath the old lamp while the colourful red features on the right balance him very nicely.
I love the play of light and shade here which you have captured so well, the colours are rich and vibrant and the details and sharpness are exquisite.
I love this one!

Marronna che foto. Ottimo il taglio stretto ed il grafismo. Le curve fanno in grande colpo d'occhio e mi piace come l'hai composto con il ragazzo nel cornice. Il bianconero ha finito l'opus perfettemente. 10 e lode!!!

That's some seriously beautiful light you got there! I love the warmth and colours. The image is sharp, contrasted and composed perfectly. A cracking photo of magazine quality. Congratulations.

Although I'm no god botherer, I prefer the religious name to that of the kgb stooge. Personal choice I suppose. But it's very pretty and is certainly not how I pictured this part of the world to look. Beautiful colours and contrasts. A good high pov, which if you climbed to get, I send you double brownie points.

I have seen pictures (as well as videos on YouTube) of this amazingly dangerous road but it is nice to see a more pleasing and picturesque view of it such as this. I congratulate you at having travelled this road and admire you for your courage. And it's perfectly understandable that there must be very many places where it would indeed be very dangerous to stop to take photographs! Did you drive or cycle this road yourself or did you travel with others?
A truly spectacular landscape in which the meandering narrow road snakes its way along the side of the precipitous mountainside. But the light, the distant mist and the rich colours of the dense vegetation are truly amazing.
A fine composition with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

We do not usually see portraits in your gallery, so I am delighted to see this rare gem. A beautiful candid portrait of this fascinating man. Excellent colour, sharpness and skin tones. A decisive moment as he concentrates on painting his face in the traditional way, just as people have been doing for thousands of years.

Haha, Yesterday I also posted the view from the airplane. But what a different landscape. In Belarus it was very flat, here mountains everywhere. You were lucky with the fine weather. The view is breathtaking. Fantastic sharpness through the windows.

Your favourite theme, my favourite colour. The cobalt blues if this image take my breath away. Stunning details, contrasts and sharpness. There is a wonderful symmetry to the image and it's an impressive subject. Congratulations.

Wow this is breath-taking. Such vivid, well-rendered colours and contrasts. The deep blue lake is extraordinary and I adore how you have composed the shot using the rocks as a natural frame. This is exquisite. Your desert series is my favourite here on TE.

At nine p.m. and it is still a day, only a bit of warm colours. Interesting view of so many boats and cranes, very busy harbour. Nicely composed, excellent sharpness (when seen in the new window :)). I went for a cruise round the harbour but not remember this part, rather modern parts of it.

Bonjour Jean Claude,
Yes, indeed, what a beautiful place to spend a holiday!
This is a lovely plaza surrounded by fine buildings and your photograph has been taken on what looks like a very warm and sunny day.
Your composition is excellent with the tall belltower perfectly placed in the frame and nicely balanced by the two very tall trees. The light and colours are magnificent and you have done well to avoid any overly strong contrasts. And the inclusion of a few people adds human interest as well as a fine sense of scale - I particularly love the little child at bottom left manfully striding along!
Perfect technical quality too.

These umbrellas are definitely not needed for rain, but gorgeous splendid sun. I like the way you composed the shot with the umbrellas seeming to hang in the air. The colours are great, especially considering you're shooting into the light. A delightful, graphical image.
