    Hello Csaba,

    You had more 'excitement' than you had anticipated!
    Perhaps a little frightening, but a great subject for a talking point, when everything is safe again!
    The shadowy features in the f/g show up well against the sky, whilst the brightness over the sea guides us to the focal, red ball of the sun.
    A moody shot, especially when linked to the notes!

    Have a safe day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,

    You secured a fine viewpoint to obtain the very best view of the rapeseed fields, with the river beyond!
    The fields look as if they have been combed into straight lines!
    The tree is well placed and is nicely balanced by the trees and farm, in the distance.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ike,

    Two fine complementary photographs to capture the details of the remote, ancient monastery.
    I was eager to read your notes to learn about the building!
    The monastery seems like a series of steps, rising up the cliff.

    For such a remote setting, the monks must have used mostly local materials to fashion this remote, yet beautiful building.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Pavle,

    When we learn of the millions of people that were killed and the huge numbers injured or displaced, it makes us wonder at man's inhumanity to man! Surely there must be a kinder way of settling disputes, or maybe the sense of greed, in some leaders, should be annulled.
    I don't think the light was in your favour for the first photograph but you have still managed to reveal the importance of the memorial to local people.
    We all have such memorials consecrated in our towns and villages!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Krzysztof,

    This is a massive machine and is very well exhibited in this angled composition, creating a fine sense of depth.

    I imagine that the perforated paper, in the f/g, controls the pattern that is being produced by the machine.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    This is a little different.
    I like to see close details of features and we would have lost much, in the way of textures and patterns, had we viewed these from a distance.
    A good, informative post.

    My warm regards,

    A very well composed, exposed and captured of this charming setting & rendering of the Windmill with fine colour. Lovely crisp and clear focus where the handsome cloudscape plays the second fiddle as strong key point. A pleasure to view!

    Hello Pierre,

    This sort of car reminds me of the cars in Grease! Maybe not the actual brand but the fact that it is a sports car and the colour!
    It's big, bold and and eye-catcher!
    This driving down a street would cause any head to turn!
    Its pristine condition demonstrates how much it is valued.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    We really do get a sense of the height of this f/g cliff, as it towers above the white, eroded slopes which surround it.
    The slopes appear to have been combed, with some giant comb, to create these deep scars and ridges.
    Excellent!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    It must have been tragic for the miller to lose his son in such a random accident but still, it would be a very eco-friendly way of producing flour, if this could be fully restored.

    I'm not surprised that you were tempted to photograph the mill, it is such an iconic feature in the lowland regions. This mill looks to be in good condition and makes a very fine feature set against the splendour of such a fabulous sky.
    Your exposure is spot on and the colours perfectly saturated.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Robert,

    I suspect that some hitch with the programme has prevented your notes from loading. When that happens, the town or city is removed too!
    Your title reveals the name of these animals so, I don't think we need too much further information.

    The nyalas have secured a spot in the dappled shade, very sensible on their part.
    The white stripes across their bodies, show up very well and will, no doubt, be a good camouflage feature when hiding in the wild.
    The animals are nicely sharp in the f/g, the more blurred b/g branches working as an effective screen.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    An extensive scape revealing its attractive land formation, textural features and mix of deep green & brown colours. The shades and distant mist lend good sense of extra depth and its simply great to look. Excellent shot

    Hello Kari,

    This is a fine presentation, using the light so well and certainly, for me, getting me thinking about the intentions of the artist.
    Light for thoughts and reading, shade for introspective thoughts.

    Hello Paul,

    These houses are from seeming poor and gave me the same impression that they gave you, quite Scandinavian in style.
    You have clearly revealed the differences between these and the fishermen's houses.
    This area would be healthier than living in a high rise flat and, if the land is scarce for housing, what a great way to use the water's edge!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    It could be symbolic of the resilience of the people who inhabit these islands!
