    Hi Paul
    I can only guess and appears that you must have problems trying to get more balance exposure. As can be seen the sky appears a bit unnatural with distracting hot spots and honestly i feel that your pp is too severe thus ruining the capture. From my experience shooting RAW will address this issue to a small degree during your pp.
    This is my sincere opinion,
    Best regards

    Hi Lars
    Lovely composition by the waterways and full of interest throughout strengthened by some bold colours. Your diagonal arrangement is always beneficial extending the sense of depth. Indeed a very worthy historic capture & a pleasure to view. Congrats

    Hi Benny
    Nice clean composition with a hint of the surroundings at the bottom just enough to create a sense of the location. The building looks really impressive in your image, nicely presented on the canvas of clear blue sky.
    Have a nice weekend

    Hi Sven
    Well captured contrast between two completely different architectural styles. Compressed perspective makes the buildings look very close to each other. Nice light and colours.
    Seems like a peaceful scene, only 6 months after the tragedy...

    I think it's now gone after all the fighting in the centre of Mosul. So many lives and so much history destroyed in the war.
    It looks like the final battle but in the Middle East no battle is ever final, just another step in the never ending war. One menance turns into another, many of those created by western interventions.
    When I was there in 2014 Mosul was already a no go area. Time flies indeed, even those 3 years for me feel like an eternity.

    Together with the previous upload it's a lovely series of brightly dressed Baku workers.
    Well captured in those, as you say, "dancing" poses and the reflections add something special to the image.
    Nice workshops too.

    Hi Gert
    Two photos that show how different a photographer's approach can be. I like this one very much for its clever crop and graphic approach.
    It's amazing how dark and yet clear the refleciton is creating a feeling there are more men there, some wearing bright and some black uniforms.

    Hi Neil
    Wonderful portrait of this family. The expressions on their faces tell they feel completely relaxed to pose for you. The ladies dressed in a traditional manner, the kids not so much any more - signum temporis.
    I was there less than a year ago and also found that people loved having their photos taken. This image brought a lot of memories back.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Evocative image created using an unusual pov and composition. We get a sense how tall the camel is and, above all, how harsh life is in those parts.
    The colour palette adds to the mood.

    A photo well-worth risking some strange looks. :-)
    Capturing both bridges is one thing but placing the man exactly between two buildings is a skill not many photographes have.
    Again, the reflection makes it special and I like the symmetry it creates.

    Hi Craig
    Excellent b&w work with well-captured contrast and great tones. The man on the bench really makes and the reflection adds an extra something as well.
    I also prefer this one to the one with a cyclist. It's beautifully simple and simply beatiful.

    Widok jest piekny. Az ma sie ochote zanurzyc w tej zieleni, zagupic w tej mgle, usiasc i pomedytowac. Ten krajobraz w ogole nie potrzebuje dodatkowych atrakcji w postaci nowoczesnych konstrukcji. Podobnie jest w Japonii - jak jest cos ladnego, jakas gora, czy jezioro, to za raz sa tez jakies specjalne atrakcje dla turystow, np. rowery wodne w ksztalcie labedzi i statek piracki.
    Widze ze masz fajna kolekcje filmow na youtubie, obejrzalam tez Lojiang. Bede do tego wracac.

    Well-captured. The silhouettes are just in the right place to create a pleasing composition in combination with the shadow. Red bricks are a perfect background and typical architecture of London.

    Hi Chris
    Brilliant exposure, and my attention keeps on being drawn to the colourful buildings and the shimmering deep water which i think is the strongest part of the photo. The white boat is a good counterbalance to the composition. A pleasant capture, Congrats

    This an excellent capture of the ruins well organized from a straight on viewpoint and nice bit of side lighting. Clarity is just adequate and contrast to greyish sky is perfect with nice inclusion of green patch. A well composed shot, Congrats
