    Hi Lisa
    A fabulous underwater imagery from your adventure and there's great feel of movement from the large school of fish wonderfully crisp, sharp and the clarity is second to none under this challenging circumstances!
    The metallic iridescence is stunning, indeed a real pleasure to view, and thks for sharing wit us. Congrats
    Best wishes

    Ciao Silvio,
    il paesaggio naturale che ci presenti in questa foto e' impressionante e bellissimo. Infatti ci sono vari paesaggi in questa vista e la profondita' e' immensa. Il senso di altezza e' affascinante, si sente piu' in alto delle nuvole. La luce ha un' ottima qualita ed i colori sono naturali e meravigliosi. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e tutto il meglio,

    Ciao Silvio,
    com' e' spettacolare ed interessante questo paesaggio urbano, preservato ed utilizzato per tanti secoli. Belle ed invitanti le prospettive, stupendi i dettagli e molto gratificanti le variazioni delle architetture. Hai quasi riempito il quadro con il paesaggio, il cielo fa' un contrasto delizioso, le tonalita' armoniose sono piacevoli. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello Joginder,
    I haven't seen many Babas (in pictures, of course) as young as the one you are presenting in this portrait. His straighforward gaze is intense and I get the impression that he wasn't totally still at the moment his picture was taken. There's naturalness and spontaneity, I think that Abmdsudi's processing has brought them out even more. An interesting person, the bright colours enhance his features and style even more. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Hello Karolina,
    this is a superb portrait, minimal in its structure but from a very effective angle, that gives dynamism and evokes the contact between the singer and her audience. I like very much her expression, her posture that fills the frame, the atmospheric grey tones. The texture of her clothes add a graphical aspect. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Murat,
    a very attractive view, you are presenting it in an excellent composition with gorgeous colours. Rich colours make strong contrasts that render the scene so vibrant. Details and textures are interesting, the human presence neat and significant. Your picture makes a great advertisement for this extravagant place. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ray,
    the landscape is awesome and your composition, giving so much emphasis on the shady area, is original and intriguing. I like this thorough view, where part of the "sculpted" rock formations stand out in the sunshine and the other part is almost silhouetted. I like the long shadows creeping cross the ground, the dark grey tones are alluring and there's no complaint about clarity. The mood is timeless. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely evening,

    Bonsoir Christian,
    this is an attractive picturesque fountain, it clearly has a long history in this place. It has kept its timeless aspect almost intact while the buldings around it have some modern additions. The wall in the background isn't so attractive but I like the glimpse of the facades along the street and the fine play of light that graces the scenery. The light and the red colours create a pleasing mood. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Maciej,
    the red gondola is very attractive, you have placed it very well in the frame (sacrificing much of its reflection) so that there's a full, clear and unobstracted view to the Palace. Palace and surroundings seem to be very lovely, the sunshine and the colours are splendid. I also appreciate the clear view and the details, the sense of depth and the perspective. It's good that the people in the foreground are interested in the Palace too. The different colours of the gondola in the workshop give an entirely different mood. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hi again Mesut
    We have just commented on each other's photos of elderly ladies at exactly the same time. What a coincidence! :-)
    This image is of completely different mood - young joyful people full of hope for the future. Also a very interesting photo with a story.

    Hello Noel,
    another attractive and interesting aspect of the grand Ashford Castle, it's easier to discern its present function as a hotel from this angle. Although it's too long to fit in the frame from this perspective, it offers a very rewarding view, the clarity of your picture is excellent. I also like the moody colours, the vague reflections and the sleek surface of the lake. Congratulations and thank you!

    Two characters completely different and yet very similar by virtue of being unusual and original. I like the hair styles!

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    lovely, elegant, dense graphism, it seems you can find it anywhere in nature and produce attractive, refreshing images with it. I love the play of lines and colours as well as the play with reflections and transparency. The tight framing enhances the graphic character of the scene, light and contrast management are superb. Congratulations and thank you!

    Thank you for this reminder of the beauty of New Zealand landscapes. The complementary colours are amazing (and I do believe you - I have seen those Tekapo blues).
    And... I know the feeling. I also travelled around in a hired car (in which I also lived and slept) :-).

    Beautiful almost abstract, almost monochrome nature image.
    And... well done on capturing the silhouette of the shark before your hasty retreat. I like the colours in that photo, it would make a nice upload in its own right.

    Hi Ann
    I think this kind of landscapes - layers of sky, mountains and sea - make for great panoramic images which you have noticed too. The tiny, but brightly-coloured, lighthouse makes for a great point of focus.
    It makes me want to be there.
    See you soon
