Hi Gert, Indeed rather unusual picture in your gallery and I suppose the note is also interessting but I am too slepy to read it :(. My first day in Brazil was hot and tiring.
Warm (:)) regards from Rio de Janeiro

Hello Carlo - There is a feeling of loneliness in this photograph. Giovanni Fattori stands dejectedly on his plinth and a solitary figure hurries past laden with shopping bags. Both figures ignore each other.
Well timed and nicely composed with the main aspects being very well positioned in the frame.

Hello Gert - Plenty of charm in this old street. I think the people furthest from your lens are actually looking at the man who is walking towards them. He's slowing them down because he's so busy on his mobile phone ;) Now the people in the FG... well it's really only you that can explain what it is that fascinates them so.

This is super Claude. Your low viewpoint fills the upper frame with the brilliant colours of the umbrella but what is especially good is the glancing eye contact you have managed to capture so precisely. I'd love to know what was going through the red-coated ladies mind.
And yes, the Stones work for me.

Hello John - Hand held and your ISO pumped up, this is a fine result ... congratulations. What a delightfully intimate space in the very lovely Glasgow cathedral; I cannot believe that this is your first visit! Did you walk around the grave yard? Now that is a fascinating place. I have never seen such splendour and money spent on the departed. Unfortunately when we visited it was very grey and wet and my pics are horrid.
Back to your photograph. The almost cater-corner composition shows off the ceiling very well and I can enjoy the way the light brings out the form of the decorative vaults. The touches of blue and red add an essential colourful detail to the neutral palette too.

The colours in this early evening shot are very lovely Silvio and I like your vertical composition a lot. The stair case is full of detail and invites me into the shot. I'd love to walk up the steps and into the narrow street I see under the arch. Beautiful Italy!

Hello Ana- There is such a lot to absorb in this DL scene and looking at the details gives me a great feel for the way of life for the people pictured here. The people look so open and friendly. Did you stop for a chat?

Hello Les - A wonderful sky and a well managed landscape scene. A new take on a subject we see quite often from you, here Brentor Church stands out as a strong silhouette and the light brings out depth and detail across the land. I like the toning very much.

Firstly, congratulations on your 1300 post Brian. That's represents a lot of dedication to both the site and to photography and I appreciate both.
Your PP work on this shot is lovely, taking the shot back to former times and fitting perfectly with the scene you present. I love the soft wash of tones. Most attractive.

This is striking in B&W Noel. The strongly geometrical shape of the face and the compelling gaze of the actor's eyes is brilliantly graphical and I love the way you have cropped the frame.
Creative work. Let's see more like this. Bravo for stretching yourself.

Hello Craig - An outstanding feature of this shot is, for me, the light and the way the overall tones of the shot are a soft, muddy grey. They compliment the colours of the boat and its reflections so well. A lovely photograph with excellent clarity.

Hello Ann - Your PP work is very successful adding to the misty, wintry look of the scene. The whites are beautifully handled, no blow outs and good detail. Finally the colour palette is superb and very much to my personal taste.
Well done, a super upload.

Not an easy subject but you managed the viewpoint very well making the most of the perspective. The line of trees and the waters edge are lovely and the colours realistic. Beautifully presented - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Having read your note accompanying your well composed image, I have to say that in recent years it has actually become usual to be confused by the weather in the UK since it is so diverse and follows no seasonal expectations it seems. As for the mini ice age... I'm in a place where the ozone layer is non-existent and walking around on cloudy days can result in being sunburned due to the higher levels of UV rays... perversely I prefer that to the UK at the moment... though I think an ice age would be preferable to skin cancer!

I like this artistic and semi abstract shot. It reminds me of the film poster for the film Clockwork Orange. I like its framing and originality that make it stand out form the usual TE fare.
Thanks and have a great day.
