    Hi Chris,
    this is so pretty, so picturesque. The building is quite original and elegant but you had such a great weather and even the clouds are arranged in a perfect pattern. Very pleasant asymmetric composition.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Jean Claude,
    Beautiful composition. I had the pleasure to walk in this park several years ago but for some reason there was a lot of shadow in the time I was there and my pictures did not work very well.
    I like very much your bright presentation, one can feel it is a warm sunny day, there is so much color and exotic plants.
    Wonderful work,

    Ciao Alessandro,
    I admire your well balanced exposition here. It was quite challenging with the shaded areas and well lit bright ones. I have the same camera but always struggle to get a good dynamic range with it -may be it is the lens then because I don't use L lenses.
    Lovely composition and eye catching colors.
    Very well done!!!

    Hi Burak,
    I bet everyone would love to have the view of this beautiful structure in the collection. I had a plesure to visit it a while ago but without a proper camera and in the pre-digital times. So I am jealoussly looking at your picture here. You had a great sky: often in Athens the sky gets so grayish but you had a wonderful blue with touch of clouds.
    Great light and colors.
    Very well done,

    Hi John,
    I just love the sky here!
    The clouds are so pretty -they decorate the blue sky so nicely! The rural view works quite clean and tidy.
    Very attractive colors.
    Pleasure to look at.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Daniel,
    I have travelled south from Porto through Coimbra and I don't know how could I miss Aveiro which I have seen afterwards so many beautiful photogaphs from.
    This one is quite encouraging too.
    I like very much those Portuguese pavements -so simple yet always beautiful and impressive.
    The buildings around are also stylish and very pretty, great presentation from an intersting angle.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    I like the workshop pictures even more as they are showing how big and great this mansion is, however I see that by making this one main photo we can notice straight away the beautiful detailed decoration of the facade. It is amazing how elaborate it is.
    Very impressive and a completely unknown subject for me.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Craig,
    beautiful architecture although I am trying to imagine the top of the spire as it is hidden here but nevertheless whatever is visible is already very attractive. Nice angle with perspective from the bottom up which creates a lovely geometry. Finally -amazing weather with blue sky and nice clouds as well to make it more interesting.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Maria,
    what a lovely composition with the main focus on the pool. I like it very much -I have to go there someday.
    I see now that the weather was quite bad as the sky reflected in the pool is white-grey :(
    That is why you cut away the sky, good didea. And it is quite atmospheric. I wonder though how great could it be with the good weather: the reflected color would be more vivid and everything else more colorful too.
    This must be extraordinary place!
    Beautiful work!

    tam naprawde jest wiele do zobaczenia! Faktycznie w niemieckich (i polskich zreszta tez) miastach jest zwykle tak wiele do zobaczenia. W ogromnej wiekszosci angielskich miast po zobaczeniu dwoch miejsc nie ma juz co dalej robic.

    Hi Bev,
    lovely animal portrait :)
    I like the perfect sharpness of the animal with nicely blurred background full of action and color.
    It reminds me about the Cleveland Show which will be organized on July 25th in Stewart Park, Marton, near where I live. They usually have plenty of animal exhibitions or shows. Not sure if llamas will be there though.
    Have a great weekend,

    Ciao Silvio,
    beautiful presentation of this amphitheater. I have been ti a similar structure on Cyprus recently but somehow I did not manage to take a satisfactory picture. Here you have presented the theater in a context of other nice architecture and most of all with the amazing sky which transform the scene very much.
    Very impressive effect!
    I like it very much,

    Bonjour Serge,
    very interesting composition, I normally don't like dark night photos but here I like the silhouettes of people in front of the fountain and the opera as well of course.
    Great idea, very well done!!

    Hi Danos,
    this is indeed quite a difficult time for Greece and a lovely presentation, fresh reportage from Athens.
    I had a pleasure to visit Syntagma square many years ago but without a proper camera, in the pre-digital times. This here is a fantastic POV which is also very suitable for the situation as you have managed to include so many people demonstrating. The main building is so nicely lit -almost glowing gold.
    Interesting to hear that you have a heavy rain. I guess you have some bad weather this summer too.

    Great work!
    I cross my fingers for a happy end for Greek economy.

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    niesamowity widok! Bardzo podoba mi sie kombinacja kolorow: czerwona brama z zielona woda. Rowniez ciekawe ksztalty: ta sama brama i palmowe sylwetki na dole kadru. Oczywiscie dymiaca woda wyglada mistycznie. A glowny dymek nawet uklada sie diagonalnie w kadrze.
    Piekne miejsce! Zdaje sie ze musze wpisac Japonie na liste miejsc do zobaczenia -szczegolnie ze jako z niewielu ostatnio krajow jest dosyc bezpieczna i moglaby sie nadac do podrozowania z dzieckiem (aczkolwiek Nadia moglaby sie tam troche nudzic...).
    Pozdrawiem serdecznie,

    Hi Ike,
    it is the matter of taste: for my taste it is a bit too dark. I know it is quite natural and the night time was emphasized here very well here with a unique mood but I would brighten it a bit. The sky was marvelous but is already almost gone.
    Great spot though I remember you other pictures from ths POV.
    Very well done,

    Hi Pranil,
    this is the part of the sunset which I like the most. When the sun is still present there is a big chance for burning out the sky, but after it hides: the sky stay colorful for a while and the whole mood is stimm quite impressive. That is what happened here, the sun is either just gone or maybe a bit hidden behind the clouds but has no more power to burn.
    The exposition is perfectly balanced and the sky so colorful while the foreground in natural colors.
    Wondeful final effect.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Gert,
    I like the little colorful houses which appear in the very centre of the composition. To the left here seems to be a fragment of a church as well. I like the architecture and pleasant vivid colors. House in the right and the tree frame the view lovely and the children add so much more life and color here!
    Beautiful work!
