    Hello Gert,

    Oh wow, what a fine historical record of this house! I love the old version too, so that we can appreciate just how much has been removed! Now, the house, though very attractive, looks a little lost against its superior neighbour!
    I'm sure planners and residents wish they could turn back the clock and, maybe, they would have made different decisions!

    Anyway, you main shot is very well exposed, showing all the features that you intended!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Pierre,

    Early spring yet the streets are still full of people; you have recorded the intense popularity of this city!

    It's a well composed photograph, the f/g nicely anchored, with a fine, sharp view of the b/g gate.

    My warm regards,

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    You have an amazing number of ruined castles in your area! This is a fine curtain wall and I like how well you have composed it into your photograph, following a diagonal across the frame.
    Though there is a fine display of greenery, early spring means the vivid greens are not showing yet.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Dear Costantino,

    Manchester of Greece - I have never heard that before but it is very descriptive!
    You capture some fine details of the buildings, all constructed right on the edge of the sea, though there does seem to be an extensive harbour beyond.

    I think your photograph is leaning a little to the left, easy to correct.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Loong,

    What an interesting series of photographs.
    I was fascinated to learn that the graffiti was so steeped in the Egyptian tradition of pharaohs and hieroglyphs.
    Your main photograph is very well composed, the f/g nicely anchored, a fine sense of depth and the lady in black seeming like a drifting ghost from the past (well apart from her modern bags!).

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ian,

    Such a collection of ruined, rusty vehicles makes a very interesting, texturally exciting photograph but what a pity we haven't found something more useful to do with these ruins.

    Hello Pavle,

    How sad to learn that this salon is no longer operating! It presents a very attractive exterior, one which responds well to b&w treatment.
    This really is a very attractive, well exposed photograph.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    A collection of pianos does seem an unusual display and yet, it would be interesting to noted their singular details, similarities and differences. The open lids seem to be inviting someone to play!
    Your composition creates a fine sense of depth and perspective, whilst the details reveal the shiny textures of the wood.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jorge,

    Wow, what a beautiful butterfly!
    I was glad to read that you had identified it correctly.
    You have composed your photograph particularly well, the butterfly and flower strongly placed against a useful, blurred b/g.

    Hello Chris,

    My immediate reaction was to feel sadness at the sight of this quite magnificent building looking so forlorn, with grass growing from its roof and debris strewn around its base.
    Your photograph reveals all these details crisply, whilst the approaching group are well placed and the gesture, from one figure, acts like a guiding arrow.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Lars,

    This is a very striking feature, erected for the Winter Games. You have captured the details well, showing us the unusual, shiny surfaces of the sloping elements and positioning them so that the create a triangular effect, mimicking the peaks of mountains behind.
    I love things like this, probably because I am a great fan of the Olympics.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    Great to see you out and about taking new photographs and who wouldn't want to photograph this beauty! It will be so different from modern cars to drive but it looks to be very well maintained!
    I like your angled composition, the road acting like a very effective guide to the strongly positioned vehicle.
    I wonder which will be moving faster, the car or the runner! 😂

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Costantino,

    The distance between the trees and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings and of the houses. The colors and the sharpness are very good. Have a nice day.

    Bonsoir Chris,

    La composition est bien divisée, le ciel, les collines et le village. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du minaret et des maisons. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

    Hello Sven,

    This idyllic village, do me think at Monschau, also in Germany, almost the same construction.
    Also a nice architectural area.
    Lovely natural view too.
    Pleasant to look at.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Best regards,

    Goedemiddag Paul,

    We krijgen weinig foto's waar mensen aan het werk zijn.
    Bij deze krijgen we wat verandering,
    U koos een goed moment en een goede hoek
    De lantaarns vullen uw beeld perfect op.
    Zeer mooi foto werk, bedankt.
