Hello Lars, I like old architecture, and these houses are so charming. It's great that the woman in period clothing was walking by when you took this photo. Maybe you waited for someone to come into the frame. Thanks for your recent critique. I hope all is well with you. :-)

Hello Bev, All the lines and curves here are great. It's nice when railway stations and other similar places have interesting designs. They might as well put some "fun" in word functional. ;-) The choice of B/W is perfect here since it enhances all the shadows, too.

Hello Abmdsudi, You have a talent for capturing everyday life, and framing it in a visually-striking way. It looks like you partially desaturated most of this scene, which is very effective. The woman's clothes are very colorful and she definitely stands out. I like her warm smile and the way she looks relaxed and welcoming, despite her challenging life.
Small talk in Stockholm by holmertz (59152)

Hello Gert, I like people who have their own sense of style, and the men here certainly fit into that category. :-) That shiny, purple hood and the turquoise sunglasses are quite a combination. Luckily there are usually interesting characters to be found at flea markets. Yes, the sky is a bit blown out, but I do also like the yellow building in the background.

Hello Claude, It's great that only one, lonely person was siting on the stairs. He stands out against the repeating handrails. The steps and handrails really create a nice, graphic pattern, too. Thanks to the words over the doors, we know what city we're viewing, as well. :-)

Hello Costantino, What a beautiful sky. The soft colors are wonderful, and the blue color seems to seep down towards the horizon, creating an interesting effect.I like the dark foreground, and the small silhouettes of the people, too.
Misty Meath Morning by Noel_Byrne (33634)

Hello Noel, The effect created by the mist is really magical. It looks like the sun is covered in a thin layer of gauze. I also like how the mist has settled in between the trees. Really nice nature shot. :-)

Hello Jean, So you are back in Miami Beach again. You must like it. :-) I spent many childhood summers there with my grandparents, but I haven't been back recently. This artwork is something new, and I like the colors. Warm weather, palm trees, and attractive colors are all a big part of Miami Beach, and this photo shows that beautifully.
A big day for the village by jean113 (5727)

Hello Jean, This inn is very charming, and it's nice to see the yellow bicycle on top and all the flags. The details that also jump out at me are all those metal containers in the back, (I don't know if they're empty or not), and I couldn't help but notice the small sign showing that the inn is protected by ADT! I see a lot of those in my neighborhood, too. :-)

Hello Chris, There's also a Union Square here in NYC. :-) This one has more color. I really like the different architectural styles, and all the great details. The old-fashioned street lamps are great, too. There's a nice sense of history and culture in this spot.
