Athens may not be one of my favourite cities, but this museum alone would make a visit worthwhile. And this photo is just marvellous with its contrasts of colours and light. I love the inclusion of some people sitting on the stairs and how they create a dynamism by breaking the otherwise perfect symmetry. You must have very steady hands to attempt a photo like this without a tripod, and achieveing such a perfect result.

It's wonderful to watch the love and tenderness streaming from the two parents towards their baby in the pram. They placed themselves perfectly on each side of the pram, both facing the centre of the view. The fountain has created a nicely grey background. This is not one of your amusing photos, it's just very nice.

Ciao caro Carlo,
You have written a very interesting note about this lovely little church and given us a beautiful photograph to accompany it.
Although you say that it is difficult to avoid lots of tourists, I think that the inclusion of people here, several with nice brightly coloured clothing, really adds well to your fine composition. You have composed the photograph very well and you have also managed the light very well considering the bright sunshine and strong shadows.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent clarity.

This is a delightful and exceptionally well taken "image à la sauvette" in which you have somehow managed to have all the elements perfectly arranged within the frame to make a very appealing composition.
The elegant lady in the poster immediately draws our attention as she stares with those beautiful eyes straight down the barrel of your lens while her lap dog seems to stare directly at the real dog on the pavement. And those stares are reinforced by the couple (the man taking a photograph with his 'phone while the lady simply looks on) who are also staring back at the model. Only the live dog seems uninterested in the situation.
A very well captured image with perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness and I feel that the lack of colour really grabs our attention and lets us focus on the fine composition and the interaction between all the subjects. A wonderful photograph!

This is a very attractive collection of photos of the traditional way of preparing meat for a big party. Each photo would have been good enough to be presented on its own. They are all well taken and with excellent colours. Together they tell us of a wonderful day of activities and good companionship.

Den här bilden har samma fina atmosfär som den förra. Du har lyckats komponera den och behandla färgerna så att den har blivit vacker som en tavla. Det är en beundransvärt välgjord bild med bra ljus och fina nyanser.

This is a fine evening shot, very well exposed and with a good city atmosphere. The buildings are beautiful, but personally I was rather disappointed with Gdansk. The extremely high concentration of tourists, souvenir shops and tourist restaurants in a very small area was a bit too much for me. But we all have our different exeriences.

This is a delightful photograph, showing this lovely historic and old wooden house perfectly in this street which is happily devoid of any motor cars.
The lack of motor vehicles here is a blessing and the phaeton is perfectly placed in the frame as it disappears into the shade of the trees, making for a fine fine and appealing composition. Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity, especially when viewed at full size.

An interesting and unusual architectural composition. Perfectly framed and nicely exposed to being out the detail in the stonework despite the stark contrast in the light levels. Very good rendering of the textural detail.

You offer us a fine curving perfective along the beach toward the focal point offered by the Ribat with its watchtower. I like the animated atmosphere and the pleasing colour contrasts. Very good technical realisation.

Hello Jean Claude,
These reflections are really superb. The very quiet river has acted like a perfect mirror. The most interesting part of the view is at the far end, but my eyes are steadily guided towards that area by the reflections of the houses on both sides. The compositions is nicely balanced and the colours are very good.

A very busy itinerary by the sound of it, but that's what you have to do if you wish to pack in as much as possible. Your high vantage point offers a fine perspective over the town and the port with the ship making a fine focal point. I like the light and colours and the excellent detail to be observed.
