Hello Jean Claude,
This is a nice portrait of the attractive young lady. The light and sharpness are both very good and the colours, including those of the background, are all matching each other perfectly.

A nice view with fine colours of early autumn. The central area is very nicely framed by the two couples coming from opposite directions. But what a strange wall and strange little towers. Maybe this is "the real thing", but my imagination makes me think of a late 19th century fantasy of mock medieval architecture, maybe with a touch of Orientalism ;-).

We may regard this as a timeless view, but neither of us will be around to see if life goes on like this in 50 years. We can only hope that people here will be able to keep that peace of mind that slowly riding a water buffalo hopefully brings. Provided they can also fill their stomachs. It is a lovely and enchanting view, but just for once I am not entirely satisfied with the colours. I think there is a red tone that makes this just slightly less perfect than your average pictures. Maybe it is a matter of too much saturation.

Med tanke på hur du har tagit den här bilden så tycker jag att skärpan är fantastiskt bra. Det kan inte ha varit så lätt att fånga ett sådant ögonblick så bra. Spänningen och glädjen lyser ur personernas ögon, ansikten och kroppsspråk. Här finns också många andra fina detaljer att titta på, inte minst molnen och himlen som ger en känsla av att detta är från högt uppe på ett berg. En riktigt spännande och rolig bild.

A lovely early autumnal misty image with an occasional glimpse of sun ray lights up this area beautifully. Worth the wait to capture this shot and I find that lined of animals appeared from the most as strong point of focus, the soothing colours make an excellent f/g base to the frame. Your patience was well rewarded surely, Congrats.

A fine indoor shot from this impressive cathedral. The inclusion of people give us an idea of the size of the columns. We also get a glimpse of the beautiful ceiling. Very nice indeed! TFS.
Have a nice evening.

Another fine shot from the narrow streets of Porto. Love the lighting and the drying clothes. Lots of interesting details. Lovely work:) TFS.
Have a nice evening.
PS! Did you know that porto in Norwegian means postage.

This is a great view and a very nicely composed photo. In spite of the skyline and the impressive bridge it is, to my mind, the red boat that really makes the photo. And of course the waves indicating that it is moving quite fast.

What a grey foggy mood but it's a blessing for keen photographer, an absolutely brilliant almost in monochrome with filtered sun and its reflection easily catching the eyes in. A dream like shot with its wonderful double image so competently captured, Congrats.

The "Us" picture is certainly the nicest, but unfortunately against the rules for regular uploads. Judging from the other WS you didn't find a lodging tucked away in a quiet corner of town, but I guess there are no such quiet corners in Oia. In this picture there are lots of nice rounded shapes at various angles. The red/pink/orange building breaks the blue and white dominance in a very nice way.

This composition gets a fine rhythm from the many diagonals, some of which seem to converge somewhere around the corner. The light gives a beautiful glow to the pink wall and the white details of the windows and the balcony. The light gives me the impression of a rather hot day, even in late September.

You did very well to give this an old time appearance. The modern buildings on top of the hill are quite discreet and don't spoil the impression of a photo from 100 years ago.

This is a very impressive watchtower of a remarkable design. Looking at it I get an impression that the clouds are actually smoke coming out of a huge chimney :-). I love the superb light and colours.

Although there is a certain lack of sharpness this is a lovely composition of the elderly lady among the nice colours of her house. It's a good street-photo, where the white lines of the steep street givs the composition fine diagonals.

This classic, very strict and stylish building gets a nice touch of modern life with these colourful umbrellas. They look like a definite break with the Soviet past. You have handled the fine light very nicely.
