This is another lovely shot from the sand dunes. I like the lone piece of driftwood, and I also like how you changed the composition slightly from your previous sand and flower photo. Here we get a glimpse of the sky, and it works very well. The ripples in the sand are also more pronounced in the foreground, which adds extra texture to the scene.

I would be very happy to turn an unknown corner, and find this amazing facade. It's really beautiful. The colors and details are so rich. I also like the cobblestones on the street, and all of the activity. This is a fabulous daily life shot from charming Gdansk.

I like the view of these modern cable cars against the deep, blue sky. I'm just wondering, why are there stuffed snowmen on top?! It is a strange sight, since I would guess that there is never any snow in this place. :-) The view from the cable cars must be great.

The texture and colorf of the ground is so interesting. It looks like hundreds of clay pots that have slowly disintegrated and melted back into the land. The large fragments of earth in the foreground really catch my eye, and I like the small bits of water and greenery, too. Solitude can be a good thing from time to time, but it must have been a bit unsettling at times to be so utterly alone on that long stretch of road.

This looks like a very active and charming square. Everyone is dressed so colorfully; I don;t think clothes are as bright here in NYC. :-) I do like the fountain, even if it didn't seem to match the rhythm of the music. It's nice to see what daily life is like in other cities around the world.

I like the POV here, with a close-up of the rivets on the bridge and the tram going by. The colors are vibrant, and there are so many great details. I like the architecture in the background, and the old-fashioned street lamps.

What a gorgeous, moody shot! The deer and the moon balance each other in the frame, and the layer of mist is beautiful. I like all the shades of blue, too. This photo is definitely worthy of being in an exhibition. :-)

It's great to see some fabulous Canadian nature again. :-) I like the reflections in the clear water. I was reading both Denis and Gert's critiques, and, like Denis, the photo did seem a bit dark to me. I thought it might just be my monitor, but I get that you didn't want to overexpose the mountain tops.
As far as life vests are concerned, I'm happy to read that I'm not the only person who never learned to swim!! I guess growing up with a temporary, four-foot deep pool in my city backyard never gave me much motivation. I could always stand in it, and I never go beyond my waist at the beach. :-)
