Hi Bulent Very well observed and taken image. As you say, it's timeless and could have been taken in many countries but it does have a Latin America or Mediterranean feel. I really like the look on that lady's face. The matching colours make it trully special. Best wishes Kasia Ps. Thank you for sharing your favs with me. That image world of tomorrow is already in one of my favourite themes by the way.

Hi Daniel Happy Birthday Romania! I'm a big fan of your country. I have been there 4 times in the last 7 years and travelled through it in a car 4 times in the 70s and 80s (with my parents, on the way to Bulgaria). I loved reading your note. I knew about the facilities in the Peles Castle. It was also near Sinaia where I experienced encounters of the third kind with the brown bears (and I'm still alive as you may have guessed...). So that's just a few facts about my relationship with Romania. :-) Appropriate photo for the occassion showing the amazing beauty of Romanian landscape. Best wishes Kasia

Hi Will Your favourite genre combined with your favourite medium is bound to bring stunning results. I'm a big fan of your monochrome street shots (not only since the exhibition...). The lady's face and hands are the two most important elements of the image and I really like how you separated her from the background by careful use of the depth of field. Have a nice Sunday Kasia

Hi Ike Very well composed with the horns nicely marching the architecture and intricate patterns of the columns and balconies. The people add context and I like the fact almost everyone on the right is wearing red and on the left - black. :-) Best wishes Kasia Ps. Thank you for your last critique. That place was not renovated after the earthquake (there is no such thing as quick renovation of people's homes in Nepal, they only have enough money to start looking after the main monuments), it just wasn't damaged. Most of buildings in Kathmandu look the same they looked before the distaster and whatever collapsed has been left at that state.

Hi Serghei Beautiful colours and reflections. The diagonal line makes for dynamic composition and the crowds reflect the festive atmosphere you experienced. I was there on 1 October 2012 and still remember the atmosphere of the city during this holiday. Best wishes Kasia

Hi Erling You managed to make a great photo of this horrible place. The contrast and play of light and shadow makes it almost abstract. Scary to think what it was like a few decades ago. Best wishes Kasia

Rzeczywiscie, przez chwile myslalam, ze to zdjecie prawdziwej kobiety, a nie rzezby. Bardzo dobra seria z tej wystawy. Milej niedzieli Kasia Ps. Ciagle zapominam odpowiedziec na twoje pytanie o pogode w Nepalu. Katmandu lezy dosc nisko, wiec cala zime w dzien jest cieplo, nawet goraco. W momencie, kiedy zachodzi slonce, temperatura zmienia sie w mgnieniu oka. W nocy w grudniu zimno (pokoje w tanich hotelach sa bez ogrzewania, temperatura mniej niz 10 C), a lutym juz tylko chlodno.

Czesc Malgosiu Doskonale rozumiem, mi tez czesto sie zdaza, ze pogoda i rusztowania krzyzuja mi plany. A czasem po prostu tlum ludzi. I potem nie lubie zle wspominam te miejsca i nie mam juz ochoty tam wracac. Rusztowania jak rusztowania, ale te okna moim zdaniem wygladaja calkiem ciekawie. Pozdrawiam Kasia
