    Dear Les

    Having just seen Noel's excellent photo in colour of a beech avenue, and now having seen yours, I feel very lucky to have seen two sides of such a fascinating subject. Here the B&E has really accentuated the dappled light and textures of the trees. There is a wonderful symmetry and depth here and I like the white vignette you have applied to the photo, giving us a sense of timelessness and just how ancient these magnificent trees are.

    Hugs to you and G

    Carissimo Silvio

    Oooh mi piacciono molto le foto dei mercati. Specialmente quelli italiani. Hai catturato bene l' essenza di essendo italiano qui. Un amore del buon cibo e buona vita. Ottima la struttura e gestione di luci.

    Ciao EZdward

    An every day photo that, due to your good eye and skill, is quite extraordinary. U like the textures, the graphism, the reflections and the almost monochrome quality to the image. In fact, I think it would be even more compelling in Black & White.

    Dear Stephen

    Well I'm not a lover of modern architecture at the best of times, but when I hear that a historic LIBRARY ahs been destroyed to make way for it, I'm even snarkier than usual. A great shot, beautiful graphism and perspective, but a photo that makes me very sad for the fact that we don't seem to cherish what has gone before us. Excellent note that has given me pause for thought.

    Cheers

    Gidday dear Ann

    What a great shot, almost abstract. And the icy blues and stark whites certainly convey the Brass Monkeys weather. I like the inclusion of the fence and the panoramic format. The visibility beyond the fence is virtually non existent, again emphasising the harsh conditions in which you were operating. Well done.

    Sorry I've been AWOL, Mum not well again, but hopefully on the mend.

    Cheers

    Ciao caro Klaudio

    A very compelling shot, one that make me want to go and fire up the Mokka! I love the low light, the play of shadow and the wonderful textures. Oooh I can almost smell it! And what a great touch with the old tea spoon, my Nan used to collect ones like that and have them on her wall. Love your note about an Australia without Italians. Dad was just telling me that when he arrived, you could only buy oil in the chemist to cook with. Everyone was using lard! Ooky!

    Hope you're well, sorry I've been AWOL, Mum not well again and work is crazy. Also I've been camping at the Tent Embassy in Redfern a lot lately, so am not at home much :)

    Hi Kari

    Wow they really do have a noticeable Autumn here - unlike Australia! Beautiful colours, lovely play of light and dappled shade and superb light control. A delightful photo.

    Cheers, hope you're well. Mum not well so I've been away from TE

    Ciao dear Abmdsudi

    Such a stunning and unforgettable photo. You did so well here, at a distance like that. The gold water and red of the little boys' costume make a wonderful contrast. I love how you composed their group slightly off-centre, also using the boat cleverly to draw the eye towards the centre. The little guys curiously shielding their eyes form the sun to look at you, are a very endearing part of the image. Wonderful work.

    Warmest wishes

    Gidday Will

    What a little cutie. We have a very tame one living here (with his girlfriend) whom we call Pemulwuy. I love the sharpness here, capturing all the amazing textures of the Kooka and also that of the bark on the gum tree. The colours are wonderfully natural, so Australian, as is the light. Even in miniature, before I could see exactly the type of bird we had here, I knew it was Aussie. Excellent depth of field too. Well done.

    Ciao dear Brian

    Sorry for being AWOL, Mum hasn't been well again and work has been crazy. But I hope to be a bit more present.

    I love this one. It's made me go cross-eyed which is always a good thing. The B7W is perfect and I adore the luminosity in the reflections, the contrast and the levels of saturation. The graphism is impeccable, as is the sky and the diagonal lines cause the eye to be drawn further into the photo. Well done.

    Salut mon cher JJ

    Please excuse my absence, my mum has not been well and work has taken me away from photography and TE lately.

    But I return happily to this grand Pink Hour photo. Y0our subject is divine, but it is the colours of the sky and water that compel me and make my heart skip a beat. Beautiful light control, excellent stillness on the water. A wonderful scene indeed.

    Salut mon cher Serge

    Apologies for my absence, my mum hasn't been well and work is keeping me away from both photography and TE. I love Autumn in Canada, you really seem to get such dramatic colours and changes in weather, whereas we here in Australia don't really. The predominant yellow tones and wonderful silvery blue water make such a compelling photo. I also like the "intrusion" of the red colours on the boat, which add an interesting contrast.

    Thanks for sharing, bonne amities

    Wow, what a magnificent photo. Jeez you must be delighted with it. And I know it would have been a difficult photo to take too. It really is extraordinary. The light for one thing is exceptional, as is the perspective and symmetry. Excellent choice the vertical frame, which adds depth to it too. Congratulations.

    Oooh I love this kind of POV, looking right up his toga, so to speak. The image just jumps out of the monitor at me. It's so sharp, beautifully defined with a flawless light control and contrast. Excellent vertical frame, of course, and I really like how you caught the stunning architecture York is so famous for in the BG.

    hahahahah so the moral of the story is, to never let Tosca fiddle with your knob?! I think I'm safe there. But what a great photo and proof-positive that there are Gremlins at work at TE. Because the initial image on my screen is so blurred, I almost picked up the phone and called you in Canada to say, WTF Craig? And then I see the large version and it's flawless. So now I feel like picking up the phone to TE and yelling down it "WTF TE?". But we both know nothing will happen. Anyway, excellent blue tones, lovely silky water and good exposure on the lights on the fountain (always the first things to OE). The skyline behind is pretty damn sexy too. Nice one.

    Have a great day, I'm glad to be more or less back, and have missed you

    Wow this looks good even in this format, but in Beta format, it made my eyes go cross-eyed (well even more than usual). The colour, clarity and luminance are certainly eye-popping. Excellent choice the vertical frame, making this even more phallic than it ordinarily would have been. Excellent work, I have missed you and am glad to be (more or less) back.
