    Hi Paul,
    fantastic way to present the cherry blossoms. People with umbrellas add so much life and color here. I like the sky which seems to be filled with pink flowers, and the ground feels very wet providing some reflections. Smart way to avoid the white rainy sky! The rails add some pleasant diagonals too.
    Very creative idea to turn a miserable weather day to your advantage!
    Excellent work!

    Ciao Lisa,
    wow this is so strange! I like it! The color is amazing, something what my daughter like very much :)
    Interesting pattern, great POV to appreciate it.
    It seems so unearthly... May be Mars?
    You are very courageous to take the little plane.

    Ciao Alessandro,
    this is so beautiful! I like very much your composition. The plants in the foreground make a nice intro, the boat is the main point to focus on and the view behind is quite spectacular. Altogether very peaceful, serene, picturesque scenery.
    Excellent work!!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    the color of the water is amazing indeed. It changes beautifully from the green tones to more bluish further in the distance.
    Nice rocks in the foreground, interesting brown color and unique shape as well.
    Very well done!
    Have a great weekend,

    Hallo Wolfgang,
    interesting contrast of this colorful town with the photos of the sandstorm, the other photos seem like a scene from a dream, foggy and dirty while this is so colorful and clear -as if you woke up from a nightmare.
    Beautiful flowers decorate the square nicely. Even the ad seems to go well with the surrounding.
    Very well done,

    Ciao Silvio,
    lovely composition here. I like such busy compositions with plenty of various elements making the artistic mess. The view behind seems to be interestingly framed with the buildings in the foreground. I like the lamp hanging down from above as well.

    Hi Achim,
    very interesting structure. You have captured it under an interesting sky with relatively heavy and yet well lit clouds. Very interesting note too.

    Hi John,
    the tram indeed seems like coming from another era, but one can see it as an interesting element too complementing the old town scene. Composition is great with the monument making a lovely foreground and the great church in the middle of the attention.
    It is quite sad to see the constructions wrapped around the tower. I would be so angry to come there and see the construction, but live not too far so you can always come back later :)
    Beautiful work,

    ale tu pieknie! W mojej podrozy po Portugalii bardzo powaznie rozwazalem zeby zahaczyc o Evore ale w koncu tego nie zrobilem. No coz bede mial co ogladac kiedy tam kiedys wroce...
    Piekne miejsce i miales znakomite swiatlo ktore dobrze wykorzystales. Doskonala kompozycja z fontanna na pierwszym planie, interesujacym kosciolem w glebi I czarownymi stylowymi kamiennicami. Nawe niebo ladnie udekorowane jest ciekawym szlaczkiem, a dziewczyna na fontannie wyglada na miejscowa.
    Wspaniala praca!

    Hi Ike,
    very well done firework photo. I have always problem with fireworks. Here you caught few of them and in real color and above some town silhouettes. May be a bit pity that there is not much of the town lights visible anymore -it could maybe add to the mood.
    Still the effect is very attractive,

    Hi Sasha,
    amazing effect with the different colors of the ground. It seems as if there were two different seasons in this photo: autumn in the foreground and spring further in the distance. The color gradient is the highlight! Well used silhouettes of the trees as well.
    Very well seen and captured,

    I love lone trees. This is such a simple and yet impressive composition. I like the all green setting and the two horizontal a bit tilted lines which enhance the geometry of the picture.

    Szeroki kat zrobil rowniez swoj efekt.
    Przyjemnie sie oglada.

    Hi Bev,
    yes I am afraid the English summer is over. Sadly most of these days I spent at work so I could only enjoy it through the window...
    Spectacular scene here. Rarely we can be in the very place where the weather front is approaching. Here you have also perfectly used it to wrap the building with the wave of the clouds.
    Amazing contrast of the blue sky with the storm approaching.
    Excellent work!
    Have a great weekend,

    Hola Luis,
    wow this is so pretty! The setting of the ruins is very attractive or you have just composed it in a nice way with the green vegetation framing the ruins from all directions and the interestingly shaped mountains around.
    Very picturesque, exactly as I like it,

    Hi Brenda,
    very original presentation from NYC. It is interesting to see less popular views of famous cities as well. The reflections/shadows on the pavement make a nice effect indeed. I don't like the inscriptions damaging the building but it does add some character here.
    Very well spotted,

    Bonjour Serge,
    lovely composition with the monuments of vestals making a nice repeated motif, although only the first one seems to have head remaining.
    It all looks great set against the blue sky.
    Great spot showed in a less popular original way.
    Very well done!

    Hi John,
    beautiful spot. I like your POV across the lake. The boat also adds a nice touch with one person in the red. I wonder if it is real or you changed the color? :)
    The palace is quite interesting and the tower as well seems to have an interesting crown. Strange idea.
    The spring was lovely although I am at work most of the good days. Coming weekend again should get worse.
    Great light here -as mentioned on numerous occasions, I seem to enjoy the shadows more and more. My postcard like takes is evolving. I like it.
    Excellent work!

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    bardzo interesujaca scenka uliczna. Ta pani w kolorowym stroju oczywiscie jest mocnym akcentem szczegolnie jaskrawym na tle zniszczonego szarego budynku. Kontrast jest bardzo uderzajacy. Swietna jakoasc, ostrosc -widac wszelkie detale.
    Jak pewnie juz pisalem: aczkolwiek chcialbym w zyciu zobaczyc wszystko to jednak Indie jakos spadly w moim subiektywnym ranking miejsc ktore chcialbym zobaczyc.
    Chyba wystarcza mi Twoje zdjecia :)
