Lovely shot, Claude!
Wonderfully moody, exquisite colors.. The composition is beautifully balanced and the reflections and rippled water add to the the beauty of the whole scene. Marvelous! Many thanks and kindest wishes,
Shelly

Hi, Lisa,
lovely post processing. You had a good eye to make this look so nicely authentic. I like how neither of them are looking into the camera, too. Gives it a sweet, poignant air. Shame there wasn't an angle the empty chair could have been avoided. Really neat shot, though, and thanks for sharing,
Shelly

Hello, Sadewo,
I found your photo very interesting and I like that you chose to do it in B&W. That turned out really nice. There are a few problems, though. You left far too much space at the top and nearly cut off the feet. Centering your subject isn't always a good thing, either. And it's always a nice thing to write a descriptive note. I have done a workshop to show you how I might have done it differently. Hope you don't mind. Many thanks and kind regards,
Shelly

Oh, Daisy,
that is SUCH a pretty shot! Lovely blue shades of the petals and I don't know how you did your PP, but it's wonderful. Very artistic. I love the white shadings(?) like wisps of fog throughout. It would make a great print for a wall picture. Most excellent! Many thanks and warmest regards,
Shelly

Hello, Jean,
what a pleasure to see your photos again. This is wonderful. I LOVE the depth and the patches of sunlight in the distance. Lovely soft color, well composed (I like the vertical format). What a beautiful view... Many thanks and kindest wishes,
Shelly

Hello, Aamer,
what lovely colors and exquisite detail. Excellent composition with the flower and butterfly off centered. The DOF is amazing and I have to say, I was stunned this was taken with an IPhone. What an amazing shot! Many thanks and kindest regards,
Shelly

Beautifully done, Javad!
Brilliant warm colors, masterfully composed with the winding river leading in and reflecting the sunset. I love the silhouettes of the mountains and the darkness of the banks alongside the river. Really lovely shot! Many thanks and kindest regards,
Shelly

Hi, Steve,
I love that windblown, bleak looking landscape. I particularly like the barren tree in the FG with the light and shadow falling on the hills beyond. Beautiful cloudy sky with peeks of blue showing through. Excellent composition, too. Nice how the points of the far hills fill in near center and to the left. That's a pretty shot. Many thanks and kindest wishes,
Shelly

Wow, Roberto,
Madly nice macro of that dragonfly. Well composed with a nice tight crop, exquisite detail (you can even see its FEET), nice soft light that doesn't overpower things. I like that gray BG, too, nice and clean ... That is a cool shot! Many thanks and kind regards,
Shelly

What a pretty shot, Jean..
Your crop worked out very nicely. Great exposure and lovely light. I particularly like the way the path leads all the way through and the good positioning of the people and the sense of scale they provide. The bare branch is well positioned for the composition, too. Looks like it was a beautiful day for a walk. Many thanks and kindest regards,
Shelly
