    Hi Lucinka - this really is my kind of photo. Composition is superb with the camels occupying the bottom right corner and the dunes behind, rippling into the distance like a vast sea. And that colour - wow!

    Hi Pranil! I like the way you composed the building to go diagonal from left to upper right! A nearer POV will improve the composition, though. Also, the lighting is off, have you tried 'auto-levels' in this shot, I think it's underexposed. Very informative info on your notes, thanks for explaining that to us. rgds.

    Hi Vincent! Wise decision to use the street lamps to frame the view at the background. In my opinion, the placement of the lamps in the photo isn't balanced, I prefer if you went nearer the lamps and placed them at the far left and right portions of the frame, that way there's less space on both sides, and the lamps will be more prominent. rgds.

    Hi carmia! It's a dream of mine to someday shoot scenes like this! Very neat, very calm, very peaceful image! Were you able to shoot this at a lower level? I'm just curious if you went closer and shoot those flowers as foreground with the house in the background. rgds.

    Hi Chris! Since the light and weather was not good for shooting landscapes/travel, I prefer this to be in B&W. I think with the old house as subject, it will perfectly complement a B&W version. rgds.

    Hello Steve! Looking at the thumbnail, I thought the birds were dirt in your lens that somehow got captured in the shot:) Those birds really add punch to the photo. I love the cliffs as well, especially how you framed the rocks in the background. I've been a fan of your landscapes, seen it in your captive landscapes site...I didn't know you were also active here in TE. rgds.

    Hello Susanna, this is a wonderfully crisp picture of the Thames. Great colours and detail. And what a fabulous sky. This place has special meaning for me. At the eastern end of the bridge is St. Thomas's Hospital where my two beautiful twin boys were born just a couple of months ago.

    Hello Wagner - great silhouettes against an amazing sky. The sun in the lower left and tree in top right create two points of focus, balancing the picture well.

    Hello Jonathan,

    Great natural colours mixed together by the gentle undulation of the land. A very peaceful and relaxing scene. It's amazing how a simple landscape can be such a pleasing image.

    A very unique POV, Joscel...well seen! You captured the current state of the rice terraces - eroding. Hope the Ifugaos get to fix this problem soon. The human element made this photo more interesting! Hope to go back to Banaue soon and shoot the place again. rgds.

    Hello Sergey,

    This picture looks as if it is from a bygone time. The horse and cart seem from another age and the colour reminds me of a sepia tone. A great shot of life in the fields and a wonderful golden hue.

    The vivid green makes this a vibrant image. The lights lead the eye well towards the main subject. It's a simple picture yet its asks the question - where is he going? The cowboy hat makes us wonder even more.

    Hello Raphael,

    This is a dramatic shot with a very powerful sky. Nicely composed too with the positioning of the tree and the sloping horizon. The yellow flowers give some interesting foreground detail.

    Yes, they do all look to be having a good time. It is a very good advertisement for Sardinia! The water is very clear and a beautiful colour - I'd like to dive in right now!

    Hello Weeraphan,

    I love the perspective on this one. The distortion from the close viewpoint and wide angled lens produces a comical look at this horse's face. Beutifully rich colours too. The golden glow from the horse contrasts well with the deep blue of the sky.

    Hello Muhammad,

    You have turned an ordinary shot of children bathing into a dramatic one with the diving figure. The unusual angle of the child, seen diving away from us, enhances the drama - I almost feel like I am diving with him.

    Hello Murray,
    Yes, I took this picture too. For me it is the detail within the apparent chaos of letters that makes this fascinating. Well, for an English (only) speaker that's certainly the effect.
