    Hello Ike,

    I can imagine the sound as well as the sight.
    The birds unite the two sections of your photograph; the f/g is in shade, whilst the b/g shows sunlight, illuminating the hills. The f/g has birds busy feeding, the sunlit section shows the birds flying in to join the flock! There are birds everywhere!
    What a treat!

    I have visited a place not too far from my home, called Martin Mere. Here the birds land in thousands in autumn, some using the area as a resting place, others spending the whole of winter at the location.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Lars,
    The famous SFO fog shown well on the WS #1, but the main picture of the beautiful ferry is an eyes catching. Its colors well in contrast to blue sky and sea, distinct clear photo, bravo.

    Good afternoon Beverley,
    This building picture is a constant display in my livingroom - but from its other side: see this one from 08/1993.
    Impressive edifice, built in a very imposing style and can be seen from all around the waterfront of Liverpool.Good choice of B&W format.

    Guzel, Ataman, the light on the green grass brought wonderful contrast from shaded area out.
    The stones added a nice another object to the bahce scene.

    Hello Silvio,
    This scenery is truly magnificent and from this POV the distant mountains are perfectly seen between the steep slopes of the nearer hills. The rather dark tones and strong contrasts create a dramatic effect. Absolutely beautiful.

    Hello Takero,
    Even if you are not completely satisfied I think the light is quite fine. Only a small piece of white cloth is slightly overexposed, but the rest looks great and the scene makes a strong impression thanks to the surrounding darkness. The colours are very nicely handled. And I fully agree with the wish for spring to come as soon as possible.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    I have a vague feeling I recognize most of this view from a brief visit to Liverpool in 1964. Or could it be from photos connected with the Beatles? Some things have probably changed here in the last half century but B&W makes it look timeless, as always. This looks like a step back in time, really much further than 2011.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Pierre,
    The house looks nice, but it's mainly the many trees that make the impression. Looking behind the house many species are found in a small area. They create a lively and interesting view. The big tree close to the façade will probably provide shade at all times of the day. The white fence is also nice and will protect children. There's a lot to see and admire in this photo and the light is also very pleasant.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    I like all three photos and it's hard to make a choice of a favourite. Each picture has its advantages. The viaduct is an attractive monument and you placed it well on a diagonal between the steep rocks. The tightly packed village with its brick roofs makes an interesting view in the middle. Colours and light are lovely.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Danos,
    The boats are interesting because of the assortments of different styles and shapes, but they are not really beautiful. So much more beautiful is the perfectly calm water and the superb reflections seen in it. They are well captured in a nicely exposed photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
