    Bonjour Robert,

    A beautiful vista from the Port of Quebec across the St. Lawrence River and you have captured it perfectly in this fine composition. The brightly coloured roofs of the houses lighten up the foreground beautifully adding depth to the image and we see the river and the distant hills perfectly portrayed beneath a glorious sky.

    Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

    An interesting note too, particularly about the little church whose steeple we can see standing proudly between the houses.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Serge,

    As a retired surgeon, I know well that the traditional red/white striped poles outside barbers' shops date back to the days when barbers were not only barbers but "barber-surgeons", undertaking a lot more procedures on you than just cutting your hair or shaving you! But how interesting that the same red/white stripes were used on lighthouses so that they would also be clearly visible by day.

    This is a magical photograph taken quite late during the "blue hour" and what makes it so special is the glorious artificial light playing on the sides of the lighthouse making it stand out spectacularly against the dark background and deep blue sky. And just a little light on the foreground bushes gives a fine sense of depth to the image too.

    A fine composition with lovely light and vibrant colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

    Fabulous!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ike,
    thank you again for your considerate and kind words! It's pleasant and interesting to see this familiar cityscape with its evening lights on and its shadows spread naturally all over. There's great depth to the dark scenery and fine stability in its lights. The definition you got in the sky is wonderful and makes the atmosphere alluring. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Ourania,

    This photograph would have been interesting enough but your clever idea of turning it through 180° really has added some dynamism and impact to the shot!

    In fact, this man might have a good sense of direction but the viewer is a little confused by the man leaning backwards yet following the lead of his shadow!

    A very simple and yet very impressive composition which certainly attracts attention and that is also accentuated by the man's bight red top. And, of course, this was very well seen and very well captured too - especially from the third floor of a hospital!

    Brilliant!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I couldn't resist putting this image into Photoshop and rotating it back to see your original image. I see that the man's T-shirt reads "I was born with a...." but I can't read any more than that. That adds to the intrigue too!

    P.P.S. Like Noel, I wish you and your wonderful country the very best for the future, whatever the outcome of tomorrow's referendum. These must be very worrying times for you all. Take care and God bless.

    Καλησπέρα Κωνσταντίνε,
    τι όμορφο και εντυπωσιακό πλοίο, το φωτογράφισες πολύ ωραία στη μέση του κάδρου, με τα κατάρτια και τ' ανοιχτά πανιά του να διαγράφονται ξεκάθαρα μπροστά στον απαλά χρωματισμένο ουρανό. Επέλεξες άριστα τις αναλογίες της σύνθεσής σου, τα άλλα σκάφη μας δίνουν την κλίμακα ώστε να εκτιμήσουμε το μέγεθος του πλοίου. Το φουσκωτό προσθέτει δυναμισμό. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,
    Ουρανία

    Hello Gerrit,
    your trip must have been very pleasant, since you passed through beautiful, picturesque sceneries like this. I like the colours and the details of the scenery, the half hidden buildings that invite the passerby for a closer look. Your composition evokes a sense of movement parallel to this lovely bank. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Noel,
    I'm very glad you came across this extraordinary exhibition, your picture and note are great and communicate important and inspiring messages. The castle has a secondary role in this composition, the children's portraits are lovely and you are presenting them in a pleasingly dynamic way. I have the greatest respect and admiration for the people who "see past the outer shell, to the beauty of a persons spirit and soul". Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Wolfgang,
    a fine idea to isolate this graphic representation of horse and rider in a composition that enhances the impact of the silouettes and adds uncertain reference to the scene. I like the mild tones of the backdrop, representing a mysterious distant exterior. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    it's interesting to try looking at the world from different perspectives and to challenge the "normal" and common perceptions of it. I like very much this rich mix of perspectives, real and abstract elements, colours, reflections and transparency. Everything we see here is intriguingly elusive, the image is being composed and decomposed constantly. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
    Ourania

    Hello Maciej,
    I like very much the presentation of the elegant palace from this angle, you managed to present its entire facade so nicely tucked within its lovely surroundings. A very well balanced composition with an attractive perspective, delicious light and colours, very pleasant atnosphere. I also like the different degrees of shade and the reflections. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Les,
    a fascinating description of a still and quiet scene, the ruined building standing lonely within a vast, deserted setting. You produced a sharp, deep, consistent image in which building, landcsape and sky are equally important and interesting. I like very much the richness and controlled brightness of the grey tones. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Aleksander,
    you achieved a wonderful graphic result with this well considered, tight composition that consists of geometrical patterns, colours and abstract images. I like very much the contrast between the geometrical setting and the fluid reflections. The sharpness and the colour definition of your picture are remarkable. Congratulations and thank you!
