    Hi Lucas
    Nice capture of a beautiful full of life river beach with its vibrant golden glow, lovely effect on that water and sky. Sometimes it's best to not expect anything...that's when the best photos appear. The view is great and the people are always strong element here, and well worth stepping out to get. Lovely, Congrats

    Hi Gyorgy
    What a beautifully detailed interior architectural photo and magnificent use of ultra wide lens that exudes the feel of tremendous space, depth and height.
    The light burst is a strong point where focus of attention is directed to, and it's seamlessly executed shot, creative oval format, pleasantly exposed and your effective mono version. A good quality shot we have here, Congrats.

    Hi Angel
    I like the solid framing leading us to admire the architectural beauty and there's a pulling power on its grandeur packed with great detail, textures and colours
    It's a great shot and excellent lighting control too. Congrats.

    This is an excellent modern architectural image with those lovely reflections and detail as the best representation of modern glass building. Superb contrast, colour and scale proportion as appropriately displayed here. Very effective capture, Congrats.

    Hi Bulent
    Easy to imagine your'e walking through this wood when looking at this pic. I like the suggested depth, misty and the way you have captured the starkness of the green stone walls showing their aged uniqueness as well as the peculiar pink leaves. Works very well which takes the eye beyond, Great woodland image. Congrats

    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

    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.

    Excellent double portrait. The lady looks grumpy indeed...
    Perfect crop with a bit of the roof framing the image nicely at the top.

    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.

    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.

    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. :-)

    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.
