    Salut Pierrot, je l'aime bien celle-là, très évocative... Le programme chargé, les couleurs, les ratures, la main qui essaye de calmer le jeu et l'autre déjà à la poursuite de la prochaine séance... Bien vu! J'aime bien dans l'ensemble tes petites visions sur les festivals, sympa de voir toutes ces coulisses.

    I don't come to TE as often as I used to (and not as often as I would like...) and it's a delight to find one of your pictures and some of your words. And of course a picture of the place that has a special place in my heart, and that you so obviously love. Of course this sky and this sea were asking for pictures, I'm so glad you decided to go for it. Rinie has said it all, I really like the low point of view that brings out the energy of the sea (the boat gives the same impression), and the wonderful light.
    I hope you are doing good, Curtis.

    Eh bien voilà Pascal le grand retour! Encore une fois, ça fait plaisir. Et avec une photo bien sympathique, même si comme Brigitte je suis prête à parier que depuis tu as fais beaucoup d'autres belles photos! Un moment de calme, un beau ciel, une lumière chaleureuse, quelques silhouettes pour apporter de la vie, et une belle idée de mettre le soleil dans l'ampoule du phare...
    Je sens tout de même une pointe de nostalgie dans ce soleil qui se couche et dans ta note...
    Bon retour et à bientôt j'espère.

    J'aime quand les photos sortent un peu des sentiers battus et que l'oeil du photographe s'attache à un détail comme ici, pour mieux faire passer une émotion, des sensations. Ici, la richesse des teintes, le gros plan sur la main et le geste de ces doigts serrant les grains du chapelet crée une vraie atmosphère, intimité, ferveur, tranquilité.

    Je regrette quand même le manque de netteté générale. J'ai aussi eu envie de tester un recadrage car je trouve la main (point où s'attarde le regard) un peu trop centré verticalement. Je te propose un recadrage dans ce sens, supprimant le haut de la photo (mais on perd les beaux plis de l'étoffe en haut, et c'est peut-être dommage).

    If only the sailboat was really sailing! :^)
    But it doesn't really matter, this scenery is terrific, a bit scary, not really human... It shows the strength of nature and how much we are small. Very nice picture, and great note.

    I'm not very experienced with lights from the Mediterranean area (yes, shame on me) but when you speak of "clean light", I think of what I have seen in the north of Norway. Such a pure light, it looks unspoiled. You should check it sometimes, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
    In your picture what I mostly feel is warmth, richness. Richness of the architecture and warmth of the sun which I'm sure is shining through this beautiful glass. It looks amazing.

    A very typical greek soldier in full uniform (I wish someone could explain me the reason for the shoes, there must be a story to explain the black fluffy thing at the end). What makes your picture very special is the warm light and the shadow it makes on the wall. Perfect composition, clever picture, and interesting note (I understand spanish but can't speak it, I hope english is OK).

    Wow, this is beautiful. Wildlife in one corner, and the city in the opposite corner... The city has won, obviously, it is in full light while the wildlife is in the shadow... Yet, it may be a trick the birds use so that they can live peacefully in that peace of land that they have kept. Also, they are close to us, even if in the shadow, the city is golden but so far away!

    In every details of this picture there are two different worlds, contrasted, but living in harmony. The transparency of the lake in the foreground, the reflection in the water, everything is gorgeous.

    You have a great gallery! I really enjoyed the visit. This one is gorgeous, all this blue and the clash of the modern sign against the traditional azulejos, good balance between ancient and modern time.

    Such a funny look! It looks like a castle from a Disney cartoon, I would never have guessed it was built as a fire station.
    I usually don't like centered composition of buildings (they can sometines look like not-so-good postcard), but here it works quite well, I don't really know why. Maybe because of the people on the left that unbalance the whole scene? (and the building itself is not symetrical). Interesting note as well. Thanks!

    Je ne vais pas être originale mais cette photo m'a tapé dans l'oeil dans ta (belle!) galerie. Un quadriptyque qui n'en est pas un, lumières, couleurs, lignes, tout y est... Un monde imaginaire et pourtant si réel. Vraiment vraiment magique. Dans mes favoris, tiens!

    Je crois que j'étais une de ceux qui t'ont fait des remarques sur la taille de la photo... Je te remercie donc pour l'avoir postée en plus grand! J'apprécie effectivement beaucoup mieux ces couleurs.

    Par contre je trouve maintenant que le haut de la photo est un peu déséquilibré par rapport au bas: moins de couleurs, moins de choses à regarder, et ce ciel clair qui attire le regard, j'ai pensé à un recadrage que je te propose, c'est juste pour essayer.

    Très joli, j'aime bien cette scène et l'étagement des différents plan, le village se révèle dans la brume par dessus les vignes, on sent le calme. J'aime bien qu'on ne voit pas le ciel, ça renforce un sentiment d'intimité, les maisons semblent comme blotties.

    Je suis tout à fait d'accord avec les retouches de branley, en particulier pour la coupure de la bande de terre du premier plan. Les couleurs de ta photo sont belles, ça manque un poil de netteté quand même.

    Very funny and well done! I like this swan looking at the regatta, a "small one" as you said, small boats but looking like big ones...

    You notice that when you try to take pictures of sailboats there is always an ugly-looking motor boat (or something of the like) in the water with them? Here this metallic barge (I guess it's the regatta comittee?), it would really be so much nicer if it wasn't on your picture.

    I like the city background as well, it makes the swan even more foreign, like if he was coming from another country and discovering a weird scene.

    Tiens, voilà un curieux mécanisme! C'est très confus à première vue mais j'imagine que tout a été calculé soigneusement. Ta photo rend bien les teintes métalliques et le détail des textures. Un sujet qui mériterait même un plan encore plus rapproché pour bien apprécier la finesse des ornementations. Très joli!

    Hello Sara, it's a very thoughtful picture, very delicate. I like the expression of trust and peace on the girl's face, it goes very well with your title. Also the soft tones are very nice. Well done!

    Very weird picture! The focus is on a very small spot and the overall effect is quite strange (in a good way), as if you had taken a picture from a small scale model. It's interesting. I guess it was done on purpose, I'd be interested to know more about the technique.
    Other than that, great Lofoten light and colors!

    Beautiful view, for me I like the clouds, they make the landscape more mysterious. It's good to have a boat, it makes the picture more alive. I really like this picture, the real beauty of Norway.
    Two things: the clouds are a little overexposed (not very bad) and I really wish you put notes in your picture, there are very few pictures of Norway (maybe none) with notes and I would be really interested to know how you made this trip (car? ship?).

    Wow! Perfect moment for the capture of the dive! The lines of the cord make a very interesting composition. The feeling of the fall is very real here (actually, I feel sick looking at this: I wouldn't want to be at this guy's place! Not for a fortune!).

    I love the colors on this picture! It looks like a collection of precious metal and precious stones, from gold at the bottom to turquoise at the top. It's very beautiful.
    It would be perfect in my mind if there was something on the horizon (a boat?) or on the sand (a shell, a stone) but I like it like that very much! Lucky you to have such a paradise!
