    Hello Chris,
    There was a slightly difficult light but there is no doubting the magnificence of the hazy mountains. I have never been this far north, not even near the Arctic Circle.

    Hello Michael,
    He looks old and maybe tired, but he seems to be a book lover, so he couldn't be completely lost. You made another good observation and also very nicely captured the father carrying the girl on his shoulders. Three generations in one shot, the older man well placed in the light and the couple against a dark background.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Two famous monuments in Firenze seen through the trees from a high POV, Beverley.
    The WS photo was taken from a different place I guess, still an intriguing shot from long ago.
    We almost accidently met...on that day.

    Hello Chris,

    This is a very attractive photograph from a scene totally engineered by you! I love how the circles draw our attention inwards, where we can dwell on the sculptures, then journey onwards to enjoy the fence patterns and the water reflections.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello lars,

    This is a really dynamic piece of architectural sculpture. No wonder you were attracted to it!
    You have cropped it nicely, to make the best use of its curves and shapes, all sharply exposed.

    Hello Pierre,

    A lady in red is always something that we like to include in our photographs, to create a vivid, focal point. Your lady is well positioned and acts as a good link to the models and the sculptures.
    The sharpness is a little soft.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    This is a really well composed photograph, full of rich, well-saturated details. The knitting machine is nicely angled across the frame, leaving enough space to encourage viewers to proceed around the end and explore some b/g features.

    In the 50's knitting machines became household features!!

    Have a good w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Bev,
    In times like these it's great to have well stocked archives to dig through. Who could ever get tired of beautiful views from Florence? It's not just the view of the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio that makes this photo enjoyable. You used one tree well as a frame and placed the other tree and the tower perfectly on thirds. The light is wonderful too.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,

    Unlike you, I never got to Russia, where you were able to take these personal photographs of Serghei's neighbourhood.

    I remember his fun and his warmth, too, from a meeting in Liverpool. I will share the photograph of him as a workshop. His personality oozes from the photograph.

    He will be sadly missed!
    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jorge,

    This is a fine panorama allowing us to understand the extent of the cultivated area, backed by the greenery of the trees and the hills.
    It looks so much more detailed in the large version.

    Hello Pavle,
    I wouldn't like to walk on these tin roofs. They must be burning hot, but their colour connect them well with the brick roofs further away. 40 °C is dangerously hot, so I hope you are very careful.

    Ciao Caro Luciano,

    When I see something do decorative, so full of frescoes, sculptures and patterns, I wonder how anyone could design such artistry!
    However, you have captured the details, in three, excellent photographs, so that I can just marvel at what is there.

    Have a good w/e,

    Hello Silvio,
    Interesting old items are shown to the left. It's amusing to see three old photos looking quite similar to the one you posted yesterday. It's a well exposed photo from this place where the light was probably not very good.

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This is a delightful photograph, very well composed! I like how you have used the elevated road as a very effective guide, leading to the village on top of the hill! The bell tower is positioned strongly on the thirds line.
    We get a very good impression of the setting for this isolated village.

    I can see a few small dust specks in the sky and on the mountains.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    A pleasant street with green plants beautifully arranged to provide shade above some tables. It's nice to see a few persons enjoying their meal at at least one table.

    People living here were victims of great injustice, but life must have been tough in this place. Hopefully they managed to start better lives in their new countries. Fascinating views in any case and as usual well taken,

    You have chosen a really good viewpoint so that the wooden bird fills the frame with interesting textures and shapes.
    The wooden decking leads our eyes into the distance, for a good sense of depth.

    Hello Paul,

    Ha! Ha! I immediately wondered if the name of this temple had come to mind, when you processed it!

    It is a very beautiful, grand temple, which you would imagine in a grander setting, if you know what I mean!
    From the back, it doesn't seem out of place.
    As always, you combine a series of very well exposed shots, to give us a genuine impression of this part of Brunei.

    Have a good day,

    Hello Loong,

    Your notes explain the problems and the effort needed to reach this cave but ... from this photograph, the effort was certainly worth it!
    The cave, with its adjacent light, looks like something from the 'Lord of the Rings'!
    I like the colours, mimicking a rainbow. over the surface of the arch. Of course, the temple doesn't show up well from this angle, but looks amazing in the w/s.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
