What a clever use of refraction! It's like a kaleidoscope. Wonderful color, of course. Thanks for the explanation.

Kind regards,

Hello Witold,

Fantastic sharpness, the composition is pleasing to the eye (great rule of thirds) and the variations within the blue, red and brown are subtle. This is a very relaxing image and the title is perfect.

I like this shot a lot Joe. The perspective, point of view, draws you into the otherwise almost flat, collage-like impression that the vertical line down the middle gives. Wonderful play on the eye. I was curious how the perspective might change with a crop such that the angles of the lower lines emerged from the lower left and right corners. I wasn't expecting to post the workshop, but when I cropped as I've described, the image suddenly became a good example of the rule of thirds as well.
I hope you don't mind.
Jim

Congratulations Sergio. Interesting composition and it looks like a lot of delicious food. An image that tells me it's time for lunch!
Well done,

I heard the laughter even before reading your note. Well done. It has some of the graininess of film, which I sometimes miss. Very pleasant image.

This is the last photo I will look at tonight before I turn off my computer. I want to leave my workspace with the smile that Juju gave me right now.

Great post, wonderful expression!!! Surely this child brings much joy.

Thank you Robert!

As usual Teresa, another beautiful shot. It was your images of Lisbon that first attracted me to your gallery, and of course you always select interesting shots even outside of Lisbon too. Your perspective of that lovely city is poetic and a joy. Here it is again. Probably a common event, a young man/boy walking through the old section of Lisbon with beautiful light falling on a colorful backdrop.

I want to cut and paste all the Portuguese versions of "kind regards", but I'm afraid I might choose one that's too personal from what's been written by other members who have commented so I assume my Spanish will say it best

Un saludo,
un beso,
un embrazo,

Jim

Dit jaar ga ik zeilen op de Waddenzee wel missen. Elk jaar gaat een groep vrienden varen met Hemelvaart. Volgende keer dat ik ga, zal ik zeker niet zo ver van de schutters gaan wandelen. Wat komt dat water snel terug zeg!

I can smell the morning sea air and last remnants of night's Jenever just by looking at this image.
Thanks this memory Jan.

A number of your shots are of unusual (for me) flowers. I particularly like the macro shots that almost make a flower abstract. The vibrant colors and intricate shapes are always a joy to look at. This looks more delicate than I think is really is. I didn't have luck with my passion flower plant years ago.

Thanks,
Jim

What a pity there's so much shade. I know you think 'well that was what I saw', but the thing I liked that we did on our shoot was the way we moved the branches for a shot once or twice to get that sunshine on the subject. A bit of nitpicking, but I do think you have a great eye in general, and like me, it's the conveyance that makes it trickier than expected.
Is that a new camera?
