    Hola Maria,
    I like very much sea piers! Nice presentation here at a good light. First time I see Rio de la Plata with such a strong dark blue color!
    Very well done!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    great reflection! It is incredibly distorted and yet it preserves enough clarity and sharpness so that we can get an idea about the architecture. It looks like an impressionist painting.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Costantino,
    lovely spot and nicely presented here, I like how colorful it appears. The reflection is respectively vivid too. Fragment of the bridge adds a nice touch.
    Very well done!

    Hola Luis,
    very nice composition with the arch inside arch. It reminds me a bit my photo from Paris (click here to see it) where I tried to put two other arches underneath the main one.
    Beautiful blue sky makes a great background and enhances visual effect. Repeated motif of course contributes to a great geometry.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Miro,
    I have just recently come across this castle looking at photos from this part of Germany. Although I spend in this country 7 years I did not visit some regions at all.
    This is a spot which I regret of not seeing. Wonderful architecture which makes me realize that Neuschwanstein is not that unique. I would prefer a tiny bit less shade here but as it is it makes a wonderful and eye catching presentation.
    Very well done!

    Hi Burak,
    wow this is a very pretty one! The light was quite challenging here with many fragments of this wonderful structure in the shade and yet there is enough light to enjoy the beauty of the design. Everything is the matter of taste, as a postcard lover I liked before everything perfectly centrally lit, now my taste has changed and I prefer a more interesting light with some shadows like here which add a natural feeling.
    Very well done!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    yes indeed it looks a bit as if the sky was on fire. The colors of the sky and the water are amazing. Wonderful capture here with well used silhouette of the boat and a person on it. The horizon is quite attractive as well.
    Very impressive final effect.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Wolfgang,
    I like photos which include a lot of inscriptions in foreign alphabets. It always introduces some interesting exotic atmosphere. This alphabet is not that foreign to me as I learned Russian for a long time but still I have never visited a country speaking this language...
    Well spotted scene with ladies wearing such different styles.
    Nice reportage,

    beautiful blue hour with the best color of the sky one can ever wish for. I really like this color tone. It goes also well with the golden walls! Very attractive geometry too.

    Hi John,
    beautiful composition! I like the pleasant light with long shades and well saturated colors. The spring has clearly arrived, I can spot the daffodils. The line of the horizon is nicely decorated with straight line of trees. Very well spotted!
    Beautiful work.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Danos,
    lovely composition with the inverted boat in the foreground. Nice rock formations too. It has a feeling of a beach and it reminds me a bit California, where I spent couple of years. Fantastic colors, well saturated and natural.

    Czesc Krzysztof,
    wow ale super reportaz nocny z Ostrowa Tumskiego w Poznaniu. Ze wstydem musze przyznac ze pomimo iz bylem kilka razy w Poznaniu to jednak na tyle krotko ze nigdy tam nie dotarlem. Piekne miejsce wyjatkowa w swoim rodzaju architektura. No i nocny klimat dodaje uroku. Ta kompozycja z mostem wydaje sie najbardziej atrakcyjna, zastanawiam sie jednak czy nie warto byloby nieco blizej przyciac tych glownych elementow pozbywajac sie ciemnych. Rozumiem jednak ze i te ciemne obszary maja swego rodzaju urok - ciekawym kontrastem niebiesiego i brazowego.
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    Hi Sasha,
    I see you started a new series, similarly to Fis2, with the windows in the centre of the attention.
    Very interesting subject indeed and you have quite nice examples already here. I like this composition ad it has some extra geometrical motifs and altogether looks quite eye catching. Have a great weekend,

    Hi Ike,
    not bad for a cell phone picture especially.
    First comment I had in mind was that I would take more of those rocks to make a more pronounced foreground but obviously with the cell phone you did not have that much flexibility.
    One can always argue if the concrete hotels are making the lovely beach more or less attractive but nevertheless it is interesting as a documentary picture.
    It looks like a lovely day and I can see why people considered it to be a promised land.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Costantino,
    excellent capture you have picked a great angle. We see plenty of inscriptions in Greek in b=the background. The two soldiers are caught in a perfectly symmetrical pose and you have also managed to include the third one.
    I had a pleasure to watch this extraordinary dance but without having a camera with me, I guess it is high time to come back to Athens and admire this spectacle again.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Bev,
    I like your attention to details: the horizon makes a perfect diagonal indeed, and the resulting geometry is quite eye catching. However I am more of a postcard type of person so I would probably rather take a classic composition here.
    You were lucky to have fantastic light there. I like the sky covered relatively densely with the dark clouds and the main attractions so pleasantly lit. They are so bright, sharp, almost standing out of the picture. This contrast with darker background is something every photographer could ever wish for.
    I like this spot and I have not seen it yet with the sky scraping pyramide. The light was magnificent, really.
    I definitely have to come back to London, and the walk along the river would be my favourite thing to do :)
    Excellent work!

    truly extraordinary settlement. I like the little houses and their unique design. It reminds me the houses which I have seen in Cappadocia. Snow adds an interesting decorative element here.

    very well spotted collection of colors. It seems indeed as if all possible colors have gathered in this fragment of beach. There is something funny and eye catching in this scene.
    Great idea, very well done!
