Hi Pepe,

Your recent Madrid series has been excellent. I haven't known quite what to say about the photos as the architectural style of the sculptures, monuments and buildings, especially roofs, is quite different to that of England - and great that it should be so!

I am also aware that you are not overly fond of 'likes', 'Fs, 'ysls', etc (I agree with you but I started on this trail before I realised that it is something imposed from outside Panoramio - from facebook for example which I don't use so didn't know that was where 'like' originated!).

But - I too have been looking at these same subjects and thinking 'can I turn this into a workable, worthwhile and artistic photo?'

Then I see examples such as yours and I decide against it - at least for now. When I get better equipment, then maybe!

So a tentative ysl for the whole series.

Best wishes
