Thumbs up To MJR: No Toy

Hi Martin,

Thumbs up To iltettoditalia: Light/Dark

Ciao Magri,
Thank you for the workshop changes to my picture.
To be honest ... I think mine is a little light, and yours, perhaps a touch to dark.
But nice to try.
I have just comment on your...

To photoray: Windows?

Hi Ray,
Being a castle buff I wondered to.
And being right under the machicolation slots, they wouldn't go the defence of the place. And if they are gun ports!
And they don't look like a later...

Wink What Pole!

Hi,
Ah!
I see you call them a 'hydro-pole'.
They always seem to creep into a picture no

Chop them all down.

Hi,
And ta for your reply.
I am always wary to over sharpen a picture as it looks just what it is ... a picture that has been tampered with.
I'd rather have one like yours.
Natural light no...

Unhappy Not Insane!

I have been busy for a few days, but see the Prato item has been pursued.
I thought I was going senile in my old age.

Thumbs up To Longroute: Long story

Salve Donato,
That is a longish story I'm afraid.
Just that we like this part of Italy.
And to be honest, it is the nearest part to drive to
from North Wales.
And I do love seeking old places...

Wink To csabagaba: The Hunt.

I think this is what taking pictures is all about.
The hunt of finding something different.

Smile Mixed Feelings.

I read all the other comments with interest.
Of course it is a personal choice.
But it is hard work choosing your pictures, making them fit, hoping for comment.
So after all that is there a point...

Thumbs up To Jeppo: Note/Link

Hi Silvio,
No, not a problem.
I really should have thought of making that link as you suggested.

Salve Tomas,
Thank you for your comment.
Good sunlight is a boon, but it can also be your
worst enemy. It can certainly blur a picture as
well as highlight it.

I find the area around the Vatican fascinating.
