    me parece que esa vista es de la region rural de la ciudad, o de algún parque urbano. me gusta na vista con esos colores y el precioso aspecto de la naturaleza. el rio tiene el tamaño de lo tercero mas ancho de mi ciudad.

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    Cela semblait être une belle photo de printemps mais c'est remarquable qu'elle est déjà prise en janvier.
    Très belle composition et magnifiques couleurs et contrastes avec les parties plus sombres.
    Amicalement, Paul

    Hello Brenda,

    It's good to learn that your outing to this spot wasn't a complete waste of time!

    I really like the shadow of Atlas, in the f/g. I'm a great fan of shadows and reflections and this is so smart because you have to use your imagination to visualise what is causing it!

    The shadow gains f/g attention but then, the church makes a quite amazing b/g. It looks so European, rather than a building in NY.
    It's nice how the peripheral buildings act a bit like a funnel to move our attention inwards.

    Keep safe,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,
    I like your POV looking down at the beach and the colorful lifeguard stand. The shadows of the palm trees are also nice. My grandma lives in Miami Beach, and I spent summers there when I was younger. This scene brings back nice memories for me. Take care...

    Hello Luis,
    A beautiful and tranquil nature near your new home.
    Still relatively new.
    The river water has a particularly beautiful blue colour well contrasting with the colour of the reed.
    Excellently composed picture.
    I hope you're doing well in Spain during these difficult times.
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Alexandar,

    So this may be a fake representation of Tuscany, but you have made it into a very fine photograph. The illuminated fountain, is well positioned in the f/g and sets the scene nicely. It shows up particularly well against the dark, pseudo Italian b/g.

    Take care,

    Ciao Luciano,
    Your presentation of this facade is very nice, even if the building itself is a bit plain. We also know at exactly what time you took this shot. :-) The clock and its surrounding case are the most interesting features for me, and I also like the deep, blue sky. Take good care...

    Hello Alford,

    I do prefer to see water splashing naturally, rather than like silk, on a slow shutter speed but that is just my preference and I know that many others love to see this type of shot.
    There is no doubt about the quality of the composition and your ability to show the sense of depth, and the fine, colour saturation.
    It was definitely worth sharing.

    Keep safe,
    Bev :-)

    Dear friend, the virus kills the business. Many shops, restaurants are closed due to the lack of customers forced to stay at home. That empty terrace on a waterfront illustrates the situation. Fine colors, good sharpness, regards.

    Ryszard, good idea to re use that ancient amphitheatre nowadays. The stairs were carved in the limestone. It is located on the coastline with the lighthouse very close. Fine colors, good sharpness, interesting photo note, regards.

    Lars, wonderful recent bridge built in Calgary. It is dedicated to pedestrians and cycles, cars and motorbikes aren t allowed here. Its design reminds a spinal column. To walk here gives the impression of being inside a body due to the red color. Fine colors, good sharpness, interesting photo note, regards.

    Hello Paul,
    This is another lovely view. It looks so lush and tropical. It's interesting that there are more boats in the left section of water than the right. You were lucky to see these views in Thailand before you had to leave.

    Hello Paul,
    I'm sorry your Asian adventure was cut short, but it's good that you're safely back home. Thanks for your concern in the recent critique you wrote. So far my family and I are o.k. It is a scary situation here at the moment... About your photo, the colors are beautiful. This row of boats makes a wonderful foreground, and I also like the mountains in the background. Take good care...

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    Cotton or wool spinning and weaving was an important job from the region where I was born, so I recognise quite a number of the small machines. Of course, these are small examples for cottage industries where cloth production was on a big scale, in mills, where I lived!
    It's an interesting collection of spinning related machines.
    Now, you will have to label them all, for those who are less familiar with the industry😂

    Keep safe,
    Bev :-)

    Claude, not many people can be inside a supermarket at the same time. The entries are filtered by the security guard. Except queuing, to go shopping becomes a pleasure. Moreover, the shelves are well -stocked now but they were almost empty around march 17, when the first quarantine started. Fine colors, good sharpness, interesting photo to remember the virus period, regards.

    Gert, people must stay calm and quiet around the mosque and avoid to talk loudly. The picture combines religion and tourism. The couple is taking a photo near the monument whereas the men in the bg are meditating or studying. Fine colors, good sharpness, interesting photo note, regards.
