    Hello Pavle,

    This reminds me of Greece, where restaurants and cafes are set up in the middle of streets, where you wouldn't expect them but they are always well attended.
    The table and chairs make a strong f/g feature, whilst the repeating examples create a very strong sense of perspective.
    I like how your shadow looks like the statue of a person scratching his head!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Mariusz,

    This is a simplistic photograph but it works incredibly well, with the three layers of colour (blue, green and ochre) forming a perfect b/g against which the angled boat has a very strong presence.

    Hello Christine,

    This looks like a very dramatic place with the mountains as a strong b/g setting.
    You have placed the oratory strongly within the scene.
    I think Gert's w/s allows us to see further details in the f/g.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Pedro,

    This looks like a most imposing, ancient wall and gate. It gives the impression that it surrounds and protects the city. I was sad to learn that only a small part of it still remains.
    I like how you have used the stone, cobbled path, in your f/g. It adds to the sense of strength and makes an irresistible guide to the gateway.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    It is unusual to have large wooden posts and a beam at the entrance to the nave, as we see here, but how well they work as a natural frame to the view within.
    The emphasis on wood for the interior is beautiful.
    It's a good shot, with fine clarity and composition.

    Hello Jorge,

    This is a fine night shot of the palace.
    The warm colours of the lights make the building seem to glow. It emphasises the many arches clearly.
    I like your positioning of the palace, where the angle of the facade and side is almost on the thirds line.

    Hello Kari,

    It is a long time since I visited Limerick but remember the typical Irish beauty of the place. The inhabitants were extremely friendly.

    This is a fine view of the buildings situated on the edge of the river. You have shown them with excellent clarity and very well positioned so that there is a natural flow from the f/g to the b/g, where the cathedral sits like a tall, attendant mother!

    Have a good day,

    This is truly a very beautiful butterfly, captured with amazing clarity, as it feeds from the clover.
    I love that we can even see the segmented appearance of its legs.

    Bottlebrush couldn't be a better name for this very colourful, exquisitely-spiky flower!
    I like this close-up, which is sharp and detailed, clearly revealing the special qualities of the flower.

    Hi Gy,

    How good that you were able to sneak in on an unprofessional photo shoot!
    It worked perfectly for you, with a strong f/g presence and an equally strong b/g presence, the two closely linked by intention.
    I suspect that your photograph was more interesting and better composed.

    It's always very interesting to recognise how scenes have changed over the years and we photographers, able to exchange views, are paramount in recording this.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Lars,

    I am so pleased to learn that this Medieval Citadel is being used as a museum! What a perfect use to keep the building used and visited by lots of people!
    You have chosen a very good aspect so that the fine detail of the citadel are wonderfully captured in the photograph, with the added details in the reflection giving colour and interest to the f/g.

    Hello Ricardo,

    The lady mounting the steps was very well included, scaling the church as well as acting as a guide towards the building.
    I like the building, illuminated (I suspect artificially) makes it stand out very clearly against the blue hour sky.
    The church does have a face; can you see it?

    Kind regards,

    Hello Murat,

    This is an excellent photograph.
    The astronaut is so much part of American history and makes an eye-catching focal feature, beautifully positioned, on the thirds line, in your composition. The reflection is the perfect complement, givIng details of the reverse side, as well as creating an excellent sense of depth.
    Your w/s are equally well presented, though I like this best.

    Hello Pavle,

    The yellow bicycle makes a great attraction for the florist's and adds a special feature to your photograph.
    The yellow-fronted shop would have made an attractive feature in its own right but it is so much better with the bicycle, giving a colour link and and a sense of depth.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    I like your viewpoint, where the converging lines of the hydrangea garden create an excellent sense of perspective and guide succinctly towards the red-brick, railway station, the main focal point.
    I see you bicycle, standing waiting.
    It is a nice addition because it creates a contrast with the train.

    Hello Gert,

    This shows just how much your scanning has improved. It is hard to realise that these are from the same slide; the colours and the intrinsic details are so much better!

    This is an excellent photograph of the lady. We can see her style of dress, the fabrics and her adornments.

    The earrings are fine but I don't think I would like a ring through my nose, like this! It reminds me too much of subservience, being led by the nose! I wonder if the nose piercing happens when the women are children or if it is something they agree to, later.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Dear Costantino,

    You have composed the scene well, the figures animating the f/g, whilst the monastery guides inwards, creating a strong sense of perspective.
    The building is sharply captured, revealing good, textural details of the stones. Because the stones were taken from the ancient walls, they give the impression that it is much older than 20th century.

    These features are excellent to use as subjects for night photography, with their silvery illumination!
    I like your chosen viewpoint, with guide lines directing us to the cathedral and apostles. The subjects stand out clearly against the dark sky, with the cross nicely situated on the thirds lines.

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This fresco would have been a remarkable document when it was painted, some 600 years ago. It clearly depicts the love and warmth of a mother for her child, whilst the halos explain the religious significance of the figures.
    It is a pity that the fresco is so damaged but you have still shown us a very sharp, neatly cropped photograph.

    Hello Pierre,

    Cemeteries an be very interesting places as well as places for respect. Reading inscriptions on the tombstones produces all kinds of interesting information.
    I particularly like your composition, which has tree shadows in the f/g, green details to the left and the road, following the line of the tombstones, helping to give a sense of perspective and depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
