    Hi Daniel
    Happy Birthday Romania! I'm a big fan of your country. I have been there 4 times in the last 7 years and travelled through it in a car 4 times in the 70s and 80s (with my parents, on the way to Bulgaria).
    I loved reading your note. I knew about the facilities in the Peles Castle. It was also near Sinaia where I experienced encounters of the third kind with the brown bears (and I'm still alive as you may have guessed...).
    So that's just a few facts about my relationship with Romania. :-)
    Appropriate photo for the occassion showing the amazing beauty of Romanian landscape.

    Hi Will
    Your favourite genre combined with your favourite medium is bound to bring stunning results. I'm a big fan of your monochrome street shots (not only since the exhibition...).
    The lady's face and hands are the two most important elements of the image and I really like how you separated her from the background by careful use of the depth of field.
    Have a nice Sunday

    Hi Ike
    Very well composed with the horns nicely marching the architecture and intricate patterns of the columns and balconies. The people add context and I like the fact almost everyone on the right is wearing red and on the left - black. :-)

    Ps. Thank you for your last critique. That place was not renovated after the earthquake (there is no such thing as quick renovation of people's homes in Nepal, they only have enough money to start looking after the main monuments), it just wasn't damaged. Most of buildings in Kathmandu look the same they looked before the distaster and whatever collapsed has been left at that state.

    Hi Noel
    Excellent double portrait. The lady looks grumpy indeed...
    Perfect crop with a bit of the roof framing the image nicely at the top.
    I really like the look of this homemade jam, I must say. :-)

    Hi Serghei
    Beautiful colours and reflections. The diagonal line makes for dynamic composition and the crowds reflect the festive atmosphere you experienced.
    I was there on 1 October 2012 and still remember the atmosphere of the city during this holiday.

    Hi Erling
    You managed to make a great photo of this horrible place. The contrast and play of light and shadow makes it almost abstract. Scary to think what it was like a few decades ago.

    This is dreamy and atmospheric thanks to the mist hanging in the air. The vertical lines of poplars create an interesting pattern.

    Ps. Ciagle zapominam odpowiedziec na twoje pytanie o pogode w Nepalu. Katmandu lezy dosc nisko, wiec cala zime w dzien jest cieplo, nawet goraco. W momencie, kiedy zachodzi slonce, temperatura zmienia sie w mgnieniu oka. W nocy w grudniu zimno (pokoje w tanich hotelach sa bez ogrzewania, temperatura mniej niz 10 C), a lutym juz tylko chlodno.

    Hello Kasia,

    This photo came up in the random order you've selected for your photos on your profile page. Shot in 2010, posted in 2013 and a welcome addition to my gallery of "favorites" in 2016. "White Wedding" or "White on White," by any other name is still a rose. I fear, if I am not more selective, I could fill my entire allowance of favorites with photos you've taken. If you get a chance, take a look at some of my earlier selection of favorites. There are some beauties by Trekkies who appeared and disappeared, like this one: "World of Tomorrow."

    Doskonale rozumiem, mi tez czesto sie zdaza, ze pogoda i rusztowania krzyzuja mi plany. A czasem po prostu tlum ludzi. I potem nie lubie zle wspominam te miejsca i nie mam juz ochoty tam wracac.
    Rusztowania jak rusztowania, ale te okna moim zdaniem wygladaja calkiem ciekawie.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    It's a wonderful shot, with you woman approaching from the rear. I have fond memories of wandering around Copacabana Beach, site of our hotel, the Arena Nacional, from 11 months ago. This particular vendor I do not remember seeing, but scores of others I do remember. I also remember a man approaching me and telling me to hide my watch, "They'll kill you for that watch."

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Wow! What a scene. Congratulations on your quick reflexes, I would still be there gaping at the empty street pondering whether I should have taken a photo.
    To answer your question... Judging from the composition, with the man and the boy seemingly relegated to the right I think you did make a conscious decision at the time of taking the photo to include the flowers. :-)
    Have a nice day

    Hi Gert
    Superb series of documentary images from Cochin. The image showing the canal makes it look like a quiet and sleepy place rather than, as you say in the note, a major city. But the other two clearly show that there is a lot of activity happening, everyone busy trying to earn some money. All three are beautiful photographs and I think I like the overloaded truck one the most.
    All in subtle colours of Kodachrome slides.
    Best wishes

    Dag Lars,

    New York blijft voor u een heerlijke inspiratiebron.
    Steeds weet u plaatsen te vinden met groot overzicht met green tussen de gigantische hoge buildings.
    Het laat zeker een grote indruk op mij achter.
    Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.

    Prettige weekend gewenst, mooi en helder in Vlaanderen,

    Bonjour, mon cher ami Philippe,

    This do my think to France in WW II with the different courtyards with soldiers.

    Also a nice architecture in background.
    Very well presentation.
    Nice done, TFS.
