    Hola Josep,

    Hermoso paisaje, con una asombrosa sensación de amplitud en la foto.

    La manera en que ese camino lleva la mirada hacia el horizonte es algo que hace sentir el deseo de "saltar dentro de la foto".

    La exposición está perfecta, con excelentes colores y nitidez.

    Buen fin de semana y un saludo muy cordial desde Buenos Aires,
    Carlos

    Hello Raz,

    I like the composition very much, with the two well differentiated areas of the photo. I think that the reflections on the shop's window add interest, but also make the eyes focus more on the right side of the image where the main subject is.

    Well done!

    Kind regards and have a nice weekend!

    Hello Franz,

    I like very much how natural the colors look. The in which the broadwalk takes the eyes into the bridge and the hills on the other side of the Minho.

    The reflections on the left side look very good, too.

    Hello Valter,

    Not only the eyes, but also the position of the head relative to the body, and the overall expression in the face are amazing.

    What we can read in those eyes is open to the imagination of each of us, but what is really certain, is that this one is a great photo.

    In addition to that, from a technical point of view, from the composition through to the B&W conversion, everything is flawless.

    Excellent!

    Kind regards,
    Carlos

    Another great shot of an aircraft.

    I like very much the details, and most of all, how we can see inside the cockpit.

    Hola Angel,

    Una hermosa imagen de tu ciudad!

    Me gusta mucho la sensación de perspectiva, con las dos calles que se abren desde donde has tomado la foto.

    Realmente, es una de esas fotos que me hacen sentir el deseo de saltar dentro de la imagen y comenzar a caminar por el lugar.

    La profundidad de campo y la buena exposición también contribuyen al excelente resultado.

    Un saludo grande desde Buenos Aires,
    Carlos

    Hello Malgo,

    Yes... those graves with fences are something that I had not seen before. Curious too how in many places cemeteries are points of touristic interest (Buenos Aires, the city where I live, is one of the cases).

    What calls my attention in this photo (and I must admit that I have been looking at it for a long time, now) is that all the graves seem to be very neat, with fresh flowers, as if people really cared to go there and pay respect to their late ones.

    Like a lot the many details!

    Kind regards,
    Carlos

    Hello Stephane,

    I compared with the previous one, and the light is totally different, to the point that if you look at the water, it seems a different place!

    It is difficult to tell if there was some breeze blowing, but the sail make me think that. The placement of the bows is very good, as the overall exposure.

    Kind regards,
    Carlos

    Hello Abmsudi,

    This is a perfect portrait, that could be used as an example in a manual.

    The precise DoF with great bokeh, the subject placement, overall exposure with very good highlights... the relaxed expression in her face...

    Everything looks well.

    Thanks for sharing this one!

    Hello Paja,

    ...And in many places, storks are also associated with babies and birth. When I was a small child and many things were not so openly discussed as today, parents would say "the stork will bring you a little baby brother" (if your mother was pregnant).

    I like this one very much. Birds in flight are not easy subjects, but you got it spot-on.

    I enjoyed the workshop image with four different photos, but I think this one is the best.

    Kind regards,
    Carlos

    Hello Farhat,

    This is a nice continuation of your post from August 16.

    I like very much her expressions, and the fact that you used a low speed, since the slight blurr helps with the idea of motion.

    The vivid colors are very good, too.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Prasenjit,

    I like very much how you exposed this photo. The dark background trees makes that the horses, even if small, get all the attention.

    One could discuss if the branch on the left is distracting or not, but I think that this branch, together with the leaves on the right, make an additional frame. Then, I like it as it is!

    Very nice photo.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Daniel,

    Many, many years ago (I was in my teens) I visited the place, and remember taking a photo of my father while he was floating with a magazine in his hands.

    But what my photo did not have are the great pastel colors and beautiful light that one can see in yours.

    Well done!

    Kind regards,
    Carlos
