    Hi Malgo
    i love postcards, nothing wrong with postcards :)
    I keep a collection of them on a wall at work, all the places i've traveled.

    you couldn't have asked for a better day here, the sun is warm, bright, you have large puffy clouds, clear water reflections, attractive color contrasts, lots going on, and the view is great too. thanks for this one
    cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    I'm sure you'll be posting interior photos of this Cathedral very soon, I'll keep an eye out for them.

    interesting to see its color, especially when compared to the dull grey building beside it on the right.

    the Cathedral is huge, i'm sure it dominates the street and its seen from all over the city. even in the shade this looks beautiful. love it
    cheers

    Hello Craig,
    I guess most of us are happy to be back on the site. Let's just hope that it keeps running for some time before the next breakdown.
    This is the kind of photo that doesn't need a lot of explanation. It is probably of the "nothing special" category, and that's probably why I like it so much. On second thoughts, autumn colours like these and a young romantic couple are all VERY special. As for the composition the trees are very nicely lined up on a diagonal that creates a perfect balance.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    Let's hope the technical problems have all been solved for the time being. I am in no doubt that there will be new problems later on. The rainy weather can't hide the beauty of this view. The area seems to offer great opportunities for long and healthy walks across the undulating hills. It's a very attractive photo in spite of the haze.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    Why waste energy by flying if you can hitch a free ride? This is a very attractive composition. So many colourful boats, all differently painted, perfectly lined up along the shore and then one in the foreground breaking the pattern. It's a sharp and clear and bright and a very neat photo. What a pity if I had never been able to see it ;-).
    Kind regards,

    The compositions speaks for itself, more or less. The old photos and the rainy day made this a good case for a B&W conversion. The umbrellas frame the view of the large street-shot perfectly. Nevertheless it would have been interesting to know just a little bit about what kind of exhibition this was.
    Best wishes,

    Hello György,
    Lots of people to watch with the painter grabbing most attention. The background shows several attractive buildings and the pink tower is nicely seen in the narrow gap between the ordinary houses. It's a high quality "nothing special".

    Hello Malgo,
    Corfu town was quite photogenic, offering many possibilities for nice views like this but also for street photography. I was there for just one day but enjoyed it. The long lines of white boats and the fortress reflected in the water create a very pleasant view.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    This looks more fun than the average garden. While most of the trees and plants seem to be real they have been greatly improved by the addition of the bright glass sculptures. Art and nature mix very well and the Glasshouse is very elegantly designed. You found a position for this photo where all the ingredients balance each other very nicely.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Bev
    yes indeed, its great to be back on TE. Lets hope the site doesn't implode.

    could you have asked for a better set of boats? I most certainly don't think so, this is awesome. and in the larger beta site we can see more clearly the rust and how its dripping - love that. you must have been beside yourself when you noticed this scene present itself to you!

    funky compo with the purple boat seeking the most attention.
    looks great in this bright light as well. cheers

    Hello Chris,
    I think the sepia version looks very much like a photo from more than 100 years ago would have looked like. One of the early European explorers could have taken it. On the other hand the original version looks better than you claim. The heat and backlight hasn't done much harm. What a fantastic place this is.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    I remember this view well and the bells provided you with a very nice composition. I found this view towards the monastery the most beautiful in all of Kiev, and all kinds of compositions were possible. In this particular case the clouds also contribute a lot to the photo. If I remember correctly the monastery was built, or re-built, just a few years ago. I can't imagine how different this view must have looked without it.

    Hello Ike,
    The building is elegantly designed and the palms create a nice frame. I am sure they were included already in the architect's drawing. The yellow and blue elevator shafts are colourful additions to the complex. I wonder if the white and red "tent" also belongs to the same structure. It looks quite good anyway.
    Kind regards,

    Maybe it's a bit crowded, but the beach looks nice with all those striped parasols overlooking the beautifully colored bay. The yellow deckchair and the curved wall of the terrace create a fine foreground.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is an excellently composed photo. It's a beautiful view of the hill with the impressive church on the top. It is well balanced by the more empty hill in the background and the quite expressive sky. It seems that Ermoupoliuscould be well worth a visit.

    Hello Carlo,
    The square is beautiful and offers a fine view of the slightly unusually designed church and the tower. The white lines assisted the composition nicely and I like the warm light on the cobbled stones in the foreground. Normally I would have liked to crop such a large empty area, but in this case the very nicely shaped stones have become an essential part of the composition.
    Kind regards,

    The car is more than 40 years old but still looking quite fantastic. The old wooden fence behind it contributes well to the composition. The grey wood and faded red paint match the car very well.
