    Lovely composition Joao. I’m sorry I haven’t visited your portfolio more often.Been most busy catching up on other stuff.I see I’ve been missing some fantastic shots.

  • I am sorry if I caused a wrong impression!! I didn’t mean to “push you” to come into my gallery with my last reply! I meant that since you are not comming here so often, when you come it is because you trully appreciate what I uploaded, and therefore, I do take it as a great compliment! Nothing to ask sorry for!! And thanks so much for the compliments!
