    Hello Jean Claude,
    Generally I hate winter, but seeing views like this is pure joy. It doesn't look like much snow has fallen, since the road is dry, but the thick frost on the trees and hedges looks fantastic. The hedges also create a superb depth. You managed a very attractive composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Benny,
    The work she is doing is quite beautiful and her posture and clothes attract my attention. The light is also very agreeable. Being left-handed is normal to her, but she looks rather awkward sitting like this with her work beside her on the floor. I am inclined to think that Rob's WS makes her look more comfortable - or maybe just makes my eyes more comfortable.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pierre,
    It would be a noisy experience to take a photo from so close to a plane taking off, even when as small as this. But you timed the photo exceptionally well and also cropped it nicely. Light and sharpness are perfect.

    Hello Serge,
    I like this wooden sculpture, although for someone unaware of being in an outdoor art gallery it could be easy to overlook it and regard it as something left by the lumberjacks. The environment for this kind of art is perfect, especially with so much snow around.
    Kind regards,

    Hello György,
    Slightly more conventional than yesterday's photo but still a very good picture. It doesn't matter that we can't see the gliders this time. It's enough to see the interest shown by the nicely placed elderly man. The clouds are amazingly attractive and the lovely scenery is actually better enjoyed in colours.

    Hello Neyvan,
    A very nice old-fashioned bandstand painted green to match the surrounding trees. Everything else looks modern, so this is the only building reminding of the city's past. The vertical shape is well chosen and the light and contrasts are superb.

    Hello Abmdsudi,.
    I somehow missed the chance to use this train, but reading your description of the crowded conditions, and seeing it in WS2, I don't feel I missed anything essential. I am surprised you found enough space to take these photos. This woman had placed herself by one of the sources of decent light, which made a portrait like this possible. In fact the light is more than decent. I don't envy those who have to balance their goods on their heads in these crowds and among all the pushing of the fellow passengers.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    It's interesting to make this kind of comparison, even though the older photo was taken only twelve years ago. I think it's not only the sunshine that makes the older view look more cosy. A new road has been added along the water but the view to the right still looks slightly more sterile.
    How interesting it would be for me to go back to Afghanistan, or Syria, or Yemen, and how sadly impossible to make any comparisons of places i had photographed long ago
    Kind regards,
    Gert.

    Hello Lars,
    Both bridges are elegant but create different patterns as they are seen side by side. In the distance the Statue of Liberty has some competition from the many cranes but still wins easily as most attractive object. The silvery tones are very attractive and seem to underscore the graphic strength of the bridges.

    A very nice view of the old style boat on its way into the harbour along with a slightly more modern ferry. Although the horizon is slightly tilted, there is a nice view of the hills in the background.

    Hello Kari,
    Don't you eat "sill" in Finland too? I wasn't aware that it was so typically Swedish, but maybe it is. Or maybe just the sauces are. It's in any case a very nice photo with a cosy atmosphere, fine light and nice colours. There doesn't seem to be any rush of customers, since the girls have time for their phones.
    Best regards,

    Hello György,
    There seems to be a connection, maybe even a relationship, between the para gliders and the small, fluffy clouds, which also look like they are having fun while flying across the sky. The magnificent sun also looks like it is participating in the show. The vastness of the rural scenery creates a feeling of total freedom.

    Hello Daniel,
    It would have been fun to have someone sitting at one of the tables, but it's a good composition anyway. The colours of the wall and the tables contrast very nicely to the green sculpture, and the oval hole creates a good observation post. As for the note, one of the few really bad meals I've had in Italy was in Pisa. It was too close to the "leaning tower", so they lived entirely on tourists and always had new customers whatever they did.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Philippe,
    This is an excellent photo with an eye-catching composition and very good colours and luminosity. The church is quite attractive and the other buildings are also nice. The diagonal pier gives a good balance to the foreground of boats and cars and the green hill creates a superb background.

    Hello Rob,
    What a nice surprise, and thanks for the dedication. I recognized this clown immediately (how could I not?), and also realized that as usual you had managed a better composition than I. This is much more "straight on" than any of my photos, just one man with a rather indifferent look passing by one clown. I like how no other visitors disturb the order, just a few other items of the exhibition are seen in the background. It is nicely cropped, with total focus on these two "persons". Very well done.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
