    Hello Claude,

    A fine observation.
    Your hesitation has worked well, for you have captured four people, eating ice-creams, and all of them are in different stages.
    The girl on the right is a real screen grabber. She would make a meditative shot all on her own!

    My warm regards,

    Hello Rob,

    I did enjoy revisiting the different libraries that you have photographed previously and to understand just how very different these modern buildings are.
    Though this one has its own individuality, I find it the least appealing, perhaps because it looks as if it may tip over,
    That is not a negative critique to your photographs, which are quite stunning in their clarity and revealing details.
    I do like those two pieces of modern art, at the entrance. They are neatly positioned here and nicely exaggerated in your w/s. These must surely be a way of encouraging children into the building, for they resemble plump, friendly creatures, the type that are invented for children's programmes!

    Have a lovely Sunday,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    This quiet backwater is a far cry from the horrors that it must have experienced during the war.
    The visible wounds seem to have healed.
    Your main focus, the boat, fills the f/g with interest and is accessed by the wonderfully textural cobbled path.
    The b/g of river and trees under bright sky, add to the mood of calm tranquility.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Paul,

    We used to have a TE member called Jean Paul (japiey) who lived in Kerala and posted delightful photographs of the region. I often wonder what happened to him, especially when you reveal the disasters of the monsoon.

    Anyway, that is a bit of an aside, to these delightful photographs that you have shown of the houseboats.
    I particularly like your main post, the huge houseboat seeming to have a presence, maybe because the life rings resemble eyes. It is huge and colourful, perfectly placed in the composition, and emphasised by its equally colourful reflection.
    The boat in the b/g gives a sense of perspective and depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Philippe,
    This is a very nicely composed photo with a good balance according to the rules of thirds. The close view gives us a splendid look at the elegant details of the walls and windows of this world famous cathedral. The light is very attractive and the blue and green areas add bright colours to the mainly yellow/grey photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    It's an impressive collection of spectacular tall buildings. The lamp in the foreground is more modest but fits well the composition's horizontal accent. The buildings are all quite beautiful and the composition is very good, but with a stronger contrast and slightly more saturation the photo would have made an even greater impression.
    Best regards,

    Hello Gerrit,

    I wonder if you were attracted to this scene because of the strong contrasts of white and black. The white wall makes a lovely canvas for the tree shadows, the street sign, the lamp and the window recesses. The black, anti-parking spheres have a very strong influence, too.
    It's a very well composed photograph as well as a well exposed one.

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The b&w format seems to have been the best option because of the lighting and, it has the effect of making the photograph seem much older.
    You did well to capture so many aircraft in the one shot and keep them sharp.

    My warm regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    What a beautiful scene!
    Because of the blue hour, the artificial lights took on a much greater importance, appearing like stars, the perfect addition to the setting of the church.
    It is a lovely photograph and, as Gert suggested, would make a good Christmas card.

    Hello Paul,
    I recognize the environment of the backwaters well, but the houseboats rather make me think of Kashmir, where they were first built for political reasons because local law forbid outsiders to buy land (a law that was changed only very recently). Some of these houseboats are quite beautiful, but I actually saw more elegantly designed boats in Kashmir. On the other hand the colours and light are more attractive than I probably ever saw in the tougher Kashmiri climate.
    Through my entire professional career I was fortunate enough to take my vacations during the colder and darker part of the European year.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Gert,

    Your notes are as interesting as your photographs.
    Although there was little infrastructure for tourists, I wonder how many changes the Vietnamese people had seen since the wars.
    The steep hills around the lake look very protective and, as noted by you, meant a calmness, not being experienced elsewhere. Maybe this created more fish stocks and safer fishing; I'm not a fisher person so don't really know such things but the boats you photographed, were all quite small. Maybe they were just ferry boats rather than used for fishing!
    I wonder if these people were good swimmers, too.
    I noticed a small child in the main photograph.
    In the west, they would probably all had to wear flotation jackets!

    Have a good Sunday,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mesut,
    This was a beautiful sunset and you captured it well. The warm tones of the sun are marvelously reflected in the water, where the silhouettes of the boats are the finest details. The fine sharpness enhances the the beauty of the view.

    Hello David,
    This is a very nicely composed photo with stunning, well saturated colors. I like the curved line of brightly painted buildings very much, but the vegetation on the hillside also shows an amazing number of tones. The photo is attractively cropped and I like that you presented this view from an angle that just for once avoided the sea.

    Hello David,

    This looks even better in the large format.
    The details of the rocky, vegetation-covered cliff and the pretty houses, built on a terrace, are nicely exposed and well composed. The houses make a lovely, curved line across the greenery.
    I found myself wondering about the fantastic views from the top and feeling sorry for the person in the isolated, grey house, who seemed to have an onerous task climbing up to the town or down to the sea!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    It's an original composition that makes me think of a Christmas decoration. You turned the lamps into large stars and used the red back lights from the cars elegantly. The dark blue evening sky is very beautiful. Well done.
