Hello Claude, There is a beauty to this photo that makes it special. Shooting into the sunlight created magic, both on the water, and in the yellow shade. The dark silhouettes, contrasted with the yellow, and the shimmering silver on the water, are lovely. Very nice!

Hello Malgo, This house is so charming, and it does remind me of houses I saw during my visit to Germany many years ago. I like all of the wood, and the flower boxes in the windows. This spot is very picturesque, like something in a fairy tale.

Hello Takero, This is such a lively and colorful scene. I like the warm smiles, and the way the women are holding their skirts. Having this take place in front of the church is lovely, too. There seems to be a lot of joy in this performance.

Hello Ian Chinese temples usually have some very colorful displays, and this one is definitely bright and attractive. I can imagine that there was also some incense burning nearby, creating a wonderful scent. Nice job presenting the offerings and decorations.

Hello Lars, Nice reflection, showing some traditional architecture and the iconic Quebec flag. I also like the stone background of the mirror. It's always fun to find some interesting reflections, and present the subject in a new and different way.

Hello Gert, I like this main photo very much. From this POV, with only one man in the scene, this looks like a very quiet place, but in the WS we can see that there are lots of people around. The houses and cobblestone street are very charming, and I like the colors, too.

Hello Ryszard, I love this kind of photo. The two different styles of architecture, combined together, make a great composition. I love reflections, and this one is flawless. Both the red bricks, and the modern building, are beautiful, and it's a bit different to see a round window instead of a square one. Very nice!

Hello Lisa, Wow! This room is appropriately named! What a stunning library, and your presentation is excellent. The symmetry, the color of the wood and the books, and, of course, the long ceiling, are all great. The room, and the photo, are impressive. :-)

Hello Tony, Your photos from China are beautiful. I like your decision to zoom in on the prayer flags, and present a tightly-cropped composition. The colors and textures of the fabric are wonderful. I see that you haven't written critiques in a while. I think more people would notice your lovely photos if you did.[+]

Hello TE neighbor, This view is a bit more dizzying for me. As you mentioned in your previous note, the drones are meant more for videos than still shots, but this photo seems to have a bit more blur on the left side. Still, it's an amazing view, and one that we wouldn't normally get to see.
