Great composition, Ian. I love these blue shadows.


Ian Stehbens on May 19, 2008

I enjoyed trying to photograph this, but I really wasn't sure of the framing, so it is encouraging that you have all affirmed this image, particularly the composition. So thank you Tamás, Liviu and Inessa.

My most sincere appreciation and warm greetings to you each.

This subject would be ignored by many but you managed to wonderfully composed it. Great shot!

Hi again, Raz. If you glance across to the GE image you will see that I had a lot of possibilities to choose from. But this combination of shadow and ramp were appealing, and the boat sat just in the right spot. I would have liked a little larger pool in the foreground. Thanks for your comment.

Hello Ian, wonderful composition and very nice colours! Greetings, Jörg

Ian Stehbens on May 26, 2008

Thanks very much Jörg. Such a simple photo doesn't leave much room for error with composition, so I am pleased that you have given it a tick.

Thanks Ian for all your photography. I hope that soon I can develop an eye for shots that seems to come easy for you.

A wonderful shot. David E

Hi Fernando!

I am pleased that you have found interest and beauty in my gallery, and I am honoured that you would add it to your favourites. Thanks. I also have found some great images in your gallery, and am impressed by them.

So it is special to send warm (summer) greetings from Sydney.

Ian Stehbens on June 2, 2010

Dear Fernando,

I hope it has warmed up there now. Granada will soon be popular with the summer tourists yet again. We are into winter now (officially commences June 1 here) with a 19C max today. A little warmer tomorrow.


Ian Stehbens on June 2, 2010

Hello Navid.

What a welcome I should give you for the most encouraging visit you have made to my gallery. And thanks for the note on composition. As you well know with a subject like this it could be arranged in a number of ways, so I am pleased for your confirmation.

Warm regards from Brisbane, Australia.
