    Hi Gert,
    Very beautiful this view, with the old ferris wheel, next to the old bridge that seems of Roman origin, the green environment is a good bonus to the composition.
    Very well done. I like it.
    Have a good weekend.
    Very best regards.
    Luis.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a well known place to me since a few years back. This is where I made my own camera ready to take photos of people watching the Night Watch. I took some, but yours are much better, and I will probably never show mine. This photo has a good combination of art, people and the beautifully decorated ceiling. The WS is also very nice and well taken. In both photos you managed the light perfectly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Roland,
    This artist seems to be making more or less the same sculpture every time. It's mainly the colours that change. This one is well placed in the square, or rather: you placed it well about 1/3 from the side. The building and the people form a nice background.

    Hello Will,
    Since you couldn't possibly call this Delft conversation, this title seems a lot more relevant. It looks almost exactly as the coffee-shop almost next door to where I live. People are always busy with their iPads and iPhones and rarely seem to be talking to each other. This was an obvious choice of B&W. The colours would mean nothing, the message means everything.

    A fine image of the 'routine giving & taking' activity which looks very peaceful, added poignancy to the series with everything that's happening. Good timing and framing, the rich saffron coloured robes adding a huge impact and charm to this y beautiful image. Congrats

    Hi Silvio
    Another awesome capture from the old world! portraying neat shape of buildings cluster seen from good viewpoint but it definitely worth looking deeper into the scene. Lovely earthy colour, textural detail and contrast to green backdrop along with subtle shadow. Your effort pays dividend here, Congrats

    Hi Benny
    A finely composed shot, I like the way you have fully filled the frame with array of identical small boats making a pleasing pattern. Good crop which includes the numbers, eye catching red and the iconic 'non la' and this adds that appeal, one of Vietnam's symbols of charm.....
    Great shot, Congrats

    Hi Nicolas
    Autumn is always inspiring for foto shoot, an ideal time of day as shown and the powerful gorgeous red! But great how it leads into the rest of the image with subtle light and detail. Great use of perspective and viewpoint as well. Excellent capture and tfs,

    Hello Miguel,
    A typical shopping street somewhere in India. This happened to be in Delhi, but could have been anywhere. The clothes hanging outside the shop make the photo very bright and attractive and the people enhance the atmosphere. The view of the street is a bit overexposed but not disturbingly.

    Hi Pavle
    When autumn is beginning to show its true colour but not just yet! An excellent shot of the scenic river view with vivid detail and wonderful reflections and your lens work is seamless makes it easy on the eye. Indeed a pleasant shot nicely done. Congrats,

    Hello Jorge,
    Nobody can beat the Chinese for finding imaginative names for strange shapes in nature. These rocks are as strange as those outside in the park, but I don't really agree with the coloured light. I may be boring, but I would have preferred a normal, neutral light just showing us the shapes. But it's a well taken photo, so the colours are not your fault.

    This is a great composition of green fields, hazy hills, low clouds and the shining white village being such a fantastic focal-point far away in the valley. You found a superb vantage point for this.

    Hello Paul,
    I am sometimes asked why I waste so many photos in the workshop, where most people will not bother to see them. That question should go to you too. Each one of these would have made a lot of members proud if they could have used it as a main photo. They are all well composed, showing very different views in different lights and two of them are adorned by people. I love the nostalgic feeling of the one showing the Indian ladies.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Pavle,
    A beautiful view of the trees so perfectly reflected in the water. The tree tops form two diagonal lines coming together on the right side of the photo. The warm tones make the view very attractive.

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is a fantastic view of the small village on the hillside and the mountains under the dark clouds further away. The sunny weather where you were standing has made the village look very cosy, and the tree creates a marvellously bright foreground. I love the contrasts between the warm tones of the foreground and the icy cold blue/grey background

    Hello Rob,
    Yes, you make me curious to see this building in a wider context. Judging from the building we get a glimpse of in the background, the main photo is quite straightforward, whereas #2 and #3 owe a lot to your inspiration and artistic eyes. The architect has looked at a lot of modern abstract art when creating these shapes and details. What looks good on a canvas obviously can look good on a wall too.

    Hello Janusz,
    It's a rough but scenic landscape where the small pond reflects the peaks and hillsides. There are fine contrasts between the bright areas and the dark shades of the nearer rocks. Clarity and colours are excellent.
