    Salut Jean
    Lovely light and colours! Great composition with the zigzag in the foreground leading the eye towards the lighthouse.

    Hi Chris
    I looked at the photo and immediately knew where it was taken as I've got shots of this chalet, from a similar, if not the same, viewpoint, taken in winter (January, so a little bit more snow).
    Great composition with the foreground complementing the mighty peaks in the distance.

    Hi Jorge
    Good reportage shot. I like your timing so we can see the girl is walking but also the composition tells the story, just like your note.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Interesting graffiti, vivid colours and great light - perfect recipe for a good shot. I like all three, they are all really good photos.

    Everywhere in so called developing world many people rely on selling goods to passengers of passing vehicles to make a living. Standing in deep water makes the game so much more difficult.

    Brilliant combination of architectural and people themes. I like the pattern of the balcony and the negative space above it is filled with the person, and also the washing, both clearly seen on the dark background.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Wonderful market scene, eye-catching indeed. I love how you filled the foreground with the merchandise, almost perfectly yellow and green and the sellers in blue-pink-blue complement not just the subject but also the colour palette.

    Hi Bev
    Well seen! It's a wonderful example of how plants grow and also the colours - red and green go really well together.
    No need to apologise, it's a pleasure to have you on this site when you do have time for it! :-)
    Have a nice week.

    Hi Jean
    You used this photo opportunity really well by filling the foreground with the begonias. Red on green works wonders for the image and they also lead the viewer's eye towards the fountain in the middle distance.

    Perfect timing! You were lucky but also you knew perfectly well when to press the shutter button. I like the combination of colours and symbols and the square format really suits the subject.

    Well worth the wait! These columns are great for a graphic composition but make no sense with a person walking past them and red clothes are certainly the cherry on the cake. You captured the movement without blurring the picture - we know from the position of the lady's feet that she is walking. Great crop too!
    Have a nice evening.

    Hi Gert
    Good job you didn't miss this occasion to take some special street photos. You captured the atmosphere of the summer (warm summer in Stockholm, again???) in the city and included some matching colours in all your compositions. I think I would also like to see a photo of the musicians and the sign taken from the same angle as the scooter shot but zoomed on the musicians. But you probably did take it, just didn't post it!

    PS. Will and I read your reply to our "double critique" immediately after you had posted it, on the boat, on Saturday night. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to reply to a forum message on my smartphone so only have done it now. Some technology... :-/

    Hi Gert
    Indeed there is a lot happening in this street. You would think that food and garbage don't go together but, in fact, they are often two different aspects of the same process. Well timed to capture the man wearing bright orange trousers throwing stuff in.

    Hi Jorge
    At least you got a really good "man at work" image. Great contrast between the red soil and their blue shirts.
    The situation is similar in some smaller places in Europe, including in the countries where the government also likes to build impressive structures!

    Impressive rock formation, well captured with lovely colours and light. It's almost like an island, with some vegetation growing on the top. Nice to have a place by the seaside to yourself, especially in the summer!

    Fascinating, no wonder it attracts visitors. Good pov and light, it's not the kind of weather I remember from my trip to Scotland! ;-)
    Great WS shot, I absolutely love the landscape one - the colours and the people on the beach.

    I drive many different cars when travelling and it's always exciting to try a new one. And this must be extra special! Not only a pleasure to drive but also looks lovely.
