Hi Steve.
Who needs a big, 'real' camera when you can take a shot like this with a phone? The higher res version looks great, too. It's a 'classic' wide angle shot, with the piece of driftwood in the bottom corner, and the horizon placed according to the famous rule of thirds. What a fantastic beach. Great photo from your travels. Hope to catch up soon, but maybe next week for me?
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Lidka.
A very pleasing photo of this magnificent Romanesque church. You placed it very well to the right of centre against a lovely sky, and framed by the trees. It has an interesting architectural design. And I think that is a field of cabbages in the foreground, bringing us down to earth.
Well done.
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Carlo.
Lovely picture of the elegant and colourful houses standing over the Arno River. I think the panoramic crop works well here. We don't usually see such a close-up of the houses, but it shows how well preserved the buildings are. We might say the people who live in them are very lucky.
Regards,
Andrew

Hi Alexandre.
Congratulations on 13 years on TE!
I didn't think a note about canned food could be so interesting, but it is. I also like your photo, with its shallow depth of field, and the focus being right of centre.
Enjoy your dulce de leche!
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Daniel.
A very well taken 'tall' night photo. You picked a delightful subject with the bikes gathered around the street lamp. The colour tones are very warm, and I like the shiny bricks or cobblestones. Well done.
Regards,
Andrew

Hola Luis.
What a magnificent display of colours under bright winter sunlight! The bridge leads the eye towards the main subject, which has a perfectly appropriate name when seen in this light. It is set back and from your viewpoint, but the foreground elements still allow it to be the focal point. A very high quality photo.
Regards,
Andrew

Greetings, adventurous crazy photographer.
This is a cleverly composed photo, in which the Autumn sun creates such a long shadow of the bridge - can't see your shadow on it! I think the Autumn colours of the trees are very striking under the lovely pale blue sky. Very nice photo with warm colour tones and interesting silhouette.
Regards,
Andrew

Hi Kasia.
Excellent shot, this one, well composed, balancing the light and shade nicely, full of life, and benefiting enormously from the blurry birds, which you managed to capture before their forms were lost against the details of the magnificent 'lucky' temple. Thanks for the note and the WS.
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Kasia.
The blurry birds are very Hitchcockian, for sure, and not only add blurry energy to the scene, but help take attention away from the timber props. I've just had a look at the previous shot and I like that one more, but this one is still a good reminder that the birds will be flying around even after human constructions have collapsed. Let's hope they can keep this one upright for a considerable time.
Regards,
Andrew

Greetings Silvio.
A lovely night scene in this little piazza. I think you made the long exposure really well, to capture the warmth of the light from those elegant street lamps shining on the walls of the houses. The very long exposure also captures very well the detail on the fountain, too. It's a sharp and high quality shot. Beautiful blue tones in the sky. Delightful photo.
Regards,
Andrew
