    Hello Abmdsudi

    Hats off for a wonderful grab-shot! The pre-focussing has worked a treat and your ability to shoot la sauvette is undoubted. But it's the expressions and sense of joy and excitement which is so endearing. Lovely work.

    Well done! I'm glad I don't have a monopoly on bad taste! A quirky and funny image.

    Hello Ian

    I count myself as one of the lovers of broken buildings! This is an excellent example of the genre, and for me is a nostalgic reminder of the year we spent in Australia. We were based in Newcastle, but travelled a fair bit around the 'interior' of NSW, once as far as Tibooburra. Don't remember Taralga though...

    Hello Gert

    Beautiful, heartwarming group portrait. The children have lovely smiles, and the mother, if such she be, is certainly eloquent in her modesty. And your scan appears to be top quality: sharp and true colours. Nice one.

    Hello John

    Amazing performance, informative note, not to mention a very satisfying and neat composition. I've never seen this spectacle live: may have to go to an airshow. Hope you and yours remain safe and well, and I hope to see you again in the fullness of time.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Kasia

    A beautiful, heart-rending photograph. Background out of focus, subject placed nicely off-centre, perfectly framed and exposed (of course), so all the technical stuff is in place. But it's the emotional charge that the image carries which makes it so special, vivified by your eloquent note. (BTW you mean 'ravaged', not 'ravished' in the last sentence!)

    Kind regards

    Spectacular and excellently composed! It reminds me of the similarly-named Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland (my black and white photograph of which sold on Alamy yesterday!). Ever thought of becoming a stock contributor yourself?

    Hello Jasmis

    Fancy seeing you again after all this time, and in glorious technicolour too! I find it interesting that a photograph of a flock of sheep - ostensibly a pleasant and positive subject - can become, as a result of the lighting and in particular your title, a rather ominous, sinister, even creepy statement. Yes: great film!

    Hello Gy

    Two of your three subjects seem to have given up on their face-masks! What's the Covid situation in your area? Hope you're keeping safe (and wearing your mask!). Monochrome seems appropriate for these depressing days, but I would say that...

    Hello John

    I remember this scene well, and took a similar snap, which I may post as a companion piece to yours. A lovely, innocent little tranche de vie. Yours is superior I think, as one can see the dancers behind the glass: I was to one side - near Claude - so only caught the audience!

    It was a smart move to focus on the foreground, and the placement of the flower follows the rule of thirds perfectly. Nice one.

    The lowering grey sky somehow resonates with the tragic events which took place here so many years ago. It looks like a popular place of pilgrimage, even in this inclement weather.

    Hello Bev

    I love the idea of a peripatetic tree! Joking aside, this is a very pleasant image, which gives a good impression of the upper reaches of the Thames (isn't it often referred to as the Isis in these parts? Pretentious: moi?). The river looks very different from my home town of Southend...

    Hardly anyone about, which is not surprising under the current circumstances. Greece has suffered recent economic problems, and now this pandemic is wreaking havoc, not least on the tourist industry. Yet your photograph is full of warmth and hope. Keep safe!

    Spectacular landscape, and an unusual and very effective vertical/portrait format chosen. Sadly we can't be doing too much Trekking around the Earth at the moment, but it's good to see images from when it was possible.

    Hello Malgo

    Interesting photograph and informative note. As a keen snapper of people, I like the variety of expressions in this shot: some of the pilgrims look devotional and rapt; some frankly look bored. But one man has noticed your camera and is clearly unhappy with your intrusive presence!

    Hello Jean

    A grey day it certainly was, but this lends a certain atmosphere to your shot. The ship is "Johanna Lucretia", a topsail schooner built in 1945 in Belgium, and now a British-registered sail training ship owned by the Island Trust, though that wasn't the case when you made this photograph.

    Hello John

    Sad to see the TE demise of Richard, but I imagine he's moved on to pastures new. I remember meeting him in Shropshire: did he also come to Peebles?

    I'm impressed by the vibrant colours here, made even more pronounced by that stormy sky. For some reason I've never been to Cropredy, even though I'm a fan of Fairport Convention...

    Kind regards
