    Hello Denis,

    I have seen quite a few photographs capturing this spot and this is definitely one of the best! I like how you have included the ramparts, emphasising the downwards view towards the sunlit houses and the snaking line of the marina.
    Your photograph shows excellent clarity and a fine sense of depth.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    You have chosen the viewpoint well, so that the the fountain seems to stretch for metres from f/g to b/g, the prancing horses seeming to be creating the splashing of the water and seriously exaggerating the overall impact. It is truly a magnificent fountain!
    The tiny figures in the b/g add human interest but also magnify the size and importance of the fountain.
    Rome does have some excellent features!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hola Angel,

    This village is lovely, like many that I have seen in Germany with pretty, coloured houses and tall, rectangular towers.
    You have captured this sharply and composed it with well balanced, horizontal layers, the tall tower strongly positioned in the frame.
    I like how the coloured houses are so well reflected in the lake, they add to the overall impression of a colourful village.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello John,

    What an inspiring note you have written this time.
    You have posted some wonderful photographs during the last fifteen years and you have always been a photographer whose photographs I have looked forward to seeing.
    Never mind that you are a non-traveller, you have shown us the most beautiful scenes from your own country which we gave all appreciated.

    This is a most unusual photograph to be taken in an exterior location.
    Were you expecting it or did you just chance upon the scene.
    Whatever, you have captured it with amazing clarity.
    We can clearly see the boat and the musicians in the f/g, creating an amazing focal point.
    The performance is set against a fine background of eclectic, Ghent architecture.
    I love the crowd of people along the canal bank; they add the mood!

    My warm regards,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Paul,

    You are right! This could be from a fairy story or part of a film set!.
    What a wonderful approach, the cobbles reflecting the yellow light from the artificial lights and seeming to lay down a golden carpet.
    The castle itself is a beautiful building, illuminated with fantasy and seeming to be floating in the night sky.
    No wonder the castle has so many visitors!

    My warm regards,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Takero,

    You have been missed!
    But, this is a lovely seasonal photograph with which to return!
    It looks like a Christmas card!
    The triangular shapes of the houses remind me of Tyrolean chalets.
    The thick layer of snow gives an attractive surface and emphasises the shapes of the roofs.

    My warm regards,

    Hello Chris,
    The old building is quite beautiful, which is even more clearly proven by the WS, and from this angle you also found nice frames. The wooden texture is well captured. I haven't been to Skansen for probably more than 30 years so I don't remember if I have seen this Norwegian hut. Maybe I should have a look next summer.
    Best regards,

    Hello Nicolas,
    A magnificent photo of the red sky and the reflections that make me think the house is on fire. I like the contrast of the dark feature with straight lines in the lower corner and the soft, bright shapes in the upper corner.

    Hello Pierre,
    It's a bit surprising to find this view in Canada. I would have guessed this was somewhere behind the former "Iron curtain" of eastern Europe. The older buildings are grey and dull, the more recent ones white and dull. That is no criticism of the photo as such. It is well taken, nicely exposed and quite interesting.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Denis,
    A nice view in three sections of Calvi seen from the fortress. The warm light falls perfectly on the middle section, the most important one, while the distant view of the hills is mainly in the shade,

    Hello Robert,

    THis is a fine shot revealing details of the man's clothing and of the old drinking fountain featuring a tap and a cup on a chain. It's very well composed, on an angle, with the figure strongly placed.
    I presume that you have desaturated the b/g to highlight the figure which is an effective technique.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Helo Bev,
    The church has a beautiful simplicity, but it's the myriad of old brick roofs that makes the real impact of this photo. It's a marvellous view and even those roofs that seem newer than the rest follow the tradition. It's an advantage to this photo that you cut off the sky, but the WS is also nice in spite of the dull sky. The view of the green hills and distant mountains is very nice.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Takero,
    Welcome back. You were gone so long I thought that perhaps you had decided to leave the site. It's always a pleasure to see photos from this fantastic place. The buildings are so attractive and the snow covers the village beautifully. It's a remarkable view captured with a very fine light and contrasts.

    Hello Gerrit,
    This is such an interesting photo that it's a pity there is no note. I suppose one of the TE bugs refused it, but you can probably attach it using the "edit". It's amazing to see a village still completely surrounded by a wall in these days. You found a perfect place for this panoramic photo with a great view of the mountains in the background.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    The paintings obviously show a lot of pieces of water melons and I saw a number of bananas in one of the workshops. Bright and amusing paintings, but maybe nothing I would want to have at home. But what about the cushions? Are they part of the show, or are visitors supposed to cuddle up there while watching the paintings? How terrible if you misunderstand their purpose and lie down on a highly valued installation!
    Fun shots and original contributions from NY.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    Windows like these seem to be very common in central Europe. They are readily used for attractive and catchy compositions, often getting brightness from red brick roofs. This roof surprises me for being slightly irregular. The face is a bit strange, but the photo has perfect sharpness and clarity.

    Hello Alex,

    This is a very beautiful, modern building and a good choice with which to celebrate the 120th anniversary of your city. A modern church for a modern city!
    It is well composed to take the best advantage of the eye-catching tower and to relay its colours.
    It is nicely scaled by the inclusion of the small family.

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    Isn't it good, Norwegian wood!
    Sorry, Chris, just couldn't help reciting the words from the Beatles, which immediately came to mind!
    I had no idea that Norway was such a relatively new country.
    There is always such a lot to learn on TE.
    This is a most interesting, wooden house.
    There must have been a reason for it being built on stilts, maybe flooding from melting ice!
    It is very precariously balanced on boulders, which again, lifts it from the ground.
    You have given us some sharp details and explained much in your notes.

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    Wow! What a photograph!
    The house appears to be burning internally, with flashing red at every window!
    It's a very well composed photograph as well as one with such strong contrasts of colours.

    Have a lovely day,
