    Ciao Carlo
    You captured a wonderful colour palette warmed up and enhanced by the evening light. The combination of contrasting hues is trully eye-catching.
    Great minimalist composition.

    Hello Kasia,
    I was just about to turn off the computer when I saw this, so I had to wait for the workshops too. This looks a bit like Australia or Nagorno-Karabakh at night, doesn't it? ;-) The main difference are the warm lights from the cars passing by in the darkness. The marvellously clear sky makes me think it was a cold night. But you are of course used to waiting patiently for perfect exposures no matter how cold it is. The workshop of the road reminds a lot of Afghanistan, which is fairly natural. I was surprised to see that this is not the first photo from Sost, but at least the first for 10 years.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    It's an architecturally interesting place and clearly well suited for a wide-angle photo. The man in the wide trousers and straw hat is more interesting than the tourists in the WS, and this photo also has the advantage of showing the sky. Otherwise the colour version is also nice, especially by giving us a closer look at the fine poster. But I guess you made the right choice of main upload anyway.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Rob,
    It would be great to see a similar photo from above of the tower you showed a couple of days ago, but for that you would really need a drone, or at least a helicopter. But this view is stunning enough. This cathedral really looks a bit out of place on Manhattan, but it's a fine work of architecture, although I would have preferred something less medieval European. Did you take this through a window? In that case the sharpness and clarity are really impressive.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Danos,
    This is a view of the Acropolis I had never seen. I don't think the museum was ready when I was in Athens the last time, in 2009. Obviously it has just been raining and the sky is clearing up. The clouds look fantastic and are really the best feature of the photo, but the light is also very good with a kind of fresh clarity after the rain.
    Kind regards,

    The Nordic weather was dull, but the mild tones of green and grey are beautiful. The small and pretty village just by the sea is neat and charming and offers a wonderful view.

    Hello Angel,
    You have shown us many photos of narrow streets between white buildings, but this is different. The woman near the camera provides a good focal-point, and along with the two women further back she also gives good depth to the photo. Usually this is provided by bright flowerpots, which are missing in this place. I actually like the lack of strong colours and bright sunshine, A village like this has a great beauty also in a dull weather of December.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Sergio,
    The towers are impressive and the other buildings are also very beautiful. This must be one of the most iconic city centres in all of Europe, so maybe it was a good idea to point the camera upwards, to avoid the crowds of tourists on the ground ;-). I like the well saturated but still perfectly natural colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    I was surprised to learn that this is at such a high altitude. TE always teaches me something. You have captured a nice view, but of course it would have been even better without the large grey prison. A quick glance at Wikipedia indicated that the conditions inside it are not dramatically better than in "the good old days". Probably it will be closed down within a few years. The photo has fine colours and the curving path leads me elegantly down to the village.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Roland,
    The clouds are nicely shaped and the iron fence forms a decorative foreground. The man makes the composition come alive and adds brighter colours. It's a quite simple but pleasant photo.

    The painting of the two faces is more beautiful than most graffiti. The letters to the side and below are colourful but not very artistic, but the big painting is skillfully made. You give us an interesting contribution to TE.

    Hello Ourania,
    The large cloud is very attractive but after all it's only a part of a very nice composition which also includes the boat (well placed) a piece of land on each side and a neat slice of land at the bottom. The boat's white dinghy, the red buoy and the swimmer's head are small but nice features in the sea.

    The perfect reflections and your smart observation created an exceptionally well balanced photo. It's also full of fine details behind and around the bridge and very neatly cropped.

    Hello Luciano,
    This is a fantastic scenery but the idea with these critiques should be mainly to comment on how the photo is taken. I note that it is very well exposed and cleverly composed. It's tightly cropped just above the waterfall and just below the line of people watching the spectacle. You were lucky to have someone dressed in red in the green environment in the lower right corner.

    These rocks look like a giant abstract sculpture. Sometimes nature is the best artist. The people make the view even more interesting, especially those in red of course.
