    Ha! Ha! Mariusz, mow we know the origins of a buffet type meal!

    This is a fine photograph and immediately demands attention. That curved flight of steps just cannot be resisted and we have to climb them! That suggests excellent composition!
    The fine details of the town hall are not a disappointment when we reach them!

    Have a good day,

    Hello Malgo,

    This photograph looks much more interesting than it appeared on the thumbnail - always a reason for opening photographs!
    The chain has been broken and the spirit of freedom emerges!

    It is a big, bold mural, impossible to miss and very sharply photographed.
    You did well to include a figure, observing the mural, even if he is also using his phone!

    Have a good day,
    Bev :-)

    Ha! ha! Pavle,

    You may be concentrating on the pigeons but, for me, it is that well placed, very textural, red-brick chimney that grabs attention.
    The plethora of differently orientated red tiled roofs makes an interesting townscape.

    Have a lovely day,

    Hello Ike,

    This is a superbly sharp photograph of the tower, so much part of Carlo’s home ground!
    The textural details of the leaning tower are so sharp, they seem almost seems palpable.

    Hello Jorge,

    This is a very well themed restaurant!
    The posters, the television, the wireless, are all in a 50’s theme.
    You have done a fine job of capturing the items, so clearly, for us to appreciate their style.

    Hello Miguel,

    It was a good decision, on your part, to make the trek to this very religious place.
    The temple is huge and truly magnificence in its highly decorative style.

    I really like how you have stood back, to include it in its entirety, which also allows you to include so many people, giving a wonderful impression to the site.
    It’s a finely exposed photograph.

    My warm regards,
    Bev 😊

    Hello Jean,

    This sculpture is effective with its message and strikes a strong cord with us too, having experienced such strong, gale-force winds in our recent, strange weather patterns!
    Your photograph is both sharp and shows good saturation.
    I like how you have composed the shot so well, the focal feature strongly placed off-centre.
    My warm regards,

    Hello Piotr,

    The details of this mountain peak are captured with amazing clarity,
    The small cloud, hovering between the couple and the summit, is an incredible feature, to experience, in such a way! It seems like something from a Disney movie, from which a wizard will suddenly emerges really super shot!

    Hello Ricardo,

    This is a really well exposed photograph!
    The colours are well saturated and the details pin-sharp!

    The drinking fountain is well included in the frame, creating a very good sense of depth to the attractive, white church. The long shadows say much about the time of day and help to explain the golden light.

    My warm regards,

    Hola Luis,

    It seemed to be a common practice for castles to alert each other to danger by lighting beacons. In the Uk, we still have some of these beacons in existence.

    You have a beautiful day for this photograph, the church and the castle standing proudly on the hilltop, the blue sky making a most attractive backcloth.
    Your photograph follows the rule of thirds in its composition, which adds to its visual appeal.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello jean,

    Agatha Christie's grandson was on TV last week; it was a super, tangible link to the great authoress.

    (Knowing the link) you can immediately imagine Agatha Christie using this house in one of her mysterious murders! It is rather grand if not beautiful.

    You have given us a good impression of the house in this series and some sharp details, particularly in this shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Dear Costantino,

    The colours are wonderfully rich and patterned in this fine reflection! Your eyes must have opened wide when you saw it as a possibility for a photograph!
    You have cropped the scene well, showing the origin of the reflection and the reflection itself, using the rule of thirds.

    Hello Rob,

    You have created some excellent artistry from this sombre monument. This is a very well created, abstract, geometric design. I wonder how it would have felt in b&w, without the figures - suddenly, it looses the 3D effect!
    Each of your shots has a different impact and I imagine, though this is my favourite, that the others could take centre stage when in a different mood!

    Have a lovely day,

    This is avery interesting photograph, revealing a cellar that is exceptionally clean, and involved in the production of wine and brandy. Is the owner a friend?

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    This interior shot is wonderfully sharp, capturing the splendid details with ultimate clarity.

    I suspect, because of the bouquet and the veil, that a wedding is due or has recently occurred.

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    Your photograph has shown us how the floor had terracotta tiles and gives us an idea of the size and importance of the stonework. But the weather, land slides and general neglect have reduced this once impressive cathedral to a mere, interesting ruin!
    The sculptures, to be found in your w/s, are indicative of the cathedral's earlier quality.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Kari,

    The receding triangles of different light and colours, topped by a chandelier, make a superb composition and a really beautiful photograph.
    I like how the stained glass windows edge the altar and how the sunlight is just touching the front pews.

    I'm glad you were able to give us these details of the interior.

    Have a good day,
