Hi Johnty, what a very organised image, so sharp, so colourful and very neat and tidy too! Well portrayed and the colours are good too. I love seeing the lady hanging out of her window!

Hello John,
Colourful Quebec!
In the end you will make me believe all of the place is this colourful...
Good point of view, subject is well framed and captured with fine details!

Hoi John,
Lekkere heldere foto met frisse kleuren. Het rood wit blauw komt aardig voor de dag. Vind alleen het frame in dit geval een beetje somber, maar day is een persoonlijke smaak.

Den Haag?

Hello John.
Nice and colorful street, well captured picture.
Wonder if the 'Lady in Blue' was the same doing the 'red' Grappie.

Hoi John
Wat een lief straatje hier. De kleuren doen zo vriendelijk aan. Heb inderdaad in workshop gekeken
Heb je die foto vanaf deze hoek hier genomen? Hoe dan ook, samen zijn ze heel goed. Groetjes

Hallo Jhon.

Erg mooie en fleurig.
Nederland zou er een stuk leuker uit zien als mijn zo creatief zou zijn.
Erg goed gedaan.
groet Frans

hallo John,
prachtig kleurrijke foto, zo grafic en toch niet....denk dat het die zwarte paal is die in feite heel de compo draagt, komt perfectuit op al die lijnen, goed gespeeld!

Hi John1
Very good perspective and colours.I like a composition.

Both pictures in one my friend John, your series from Quebec goes on very well. Wonderful colors and symmetry. Thanks for sharing.

Regards from Athens

Hi John,
This is a very nice composition. It's so colourfull and bring back the warmt of this beautiful day we passed there. Very well done my friend.

Great colours and the angle is nice.
Clever quote.

I live in Canada, John, but Q is from my place almost as far as Europe! Wouldn't mind visiting: it has this old world flavor that I miss so much out west.
Nice take and perspective on this colorful view. You brought your knack for Vermeer-like scenes to Canada that time!

Looks like the second floor of a house, where is the first floor?
Great shot though! Good colours and composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi John...bold colours but not as ghastly as some I see in the city here. Lovely POV showing the older achitecture. Lovely sky and good light. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on

Hi John,
Almost 25 years ago I took a picture from this very same spot. Unfortunately I can not find the photo or the negative. This one is exceptionally well done.

Hello John!

The colorful narrow streets of Quebec City are definitely a good source of nice photographs . I have recognized right away the blue roof and painter (^_^).

May I humbly propose you a little Workshop on this one with a different compo.

Hi Johnny,

Anyway, on to this one :) Great POV my friend and some interesting colours on these houses. It certainly brightens the area up I bet :)
