    Hello Jean,
    It's very interesting to watch the items that have been used to create this actually quite natural looking owl. Only a very clever artist could do this. It is also very nicely placed in front of the trees and bushes and their bright colours. It's a very nice, original and well exposed photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Lars,
    This is a fine building but it is not immediately obvious to me why it is a protected heritage site, unless it is one of many buildings in this town having the same status. On the other hand the area generally seems to be quite nice and worth some exploration. It's a well exposed and very sharp photo, which is even more clearly seen in the large version.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    This is an original and attractive photo. It is interesting to watch the bees gather for a drink. It is important to protect these very important insects, so this tradition is very nice. This is also a fine photo with a fine background and very good colours.

    Hello Daniel

    Delightful urban scene, very well presented in this vertical format. I like how the cluster of houses are built along the hillside right in the end of this narrow street. You got a fine balance between the light and shadow areas. Very nice work:) TFS.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

    Hello Malgo

    Excellent photo of this colourful field. The mountains creates a perfect backdrop for the scene and the red stands out very well in contrast to the green. Thanks for sharing this together with your informative note. Beautiful work:)

    Enjoy your Sunday.

    Hello Rob,
    This is quite fascinating. It looks like a combination of elevator, installation and light-show, all in one. It's an ingenious work of multi-media contemporary art, largely thanks to your fine exposure.

    Hello Elaine,
    This is a fantastic picture which shows the joys and drawbacks of travelling in countries like Burma. There are so many fine features, first and foremost the tightly packed line of people waiting to buy tickets, but also the colourful signs and other details. The light is superb and I appreciate that you included so much of the wall. To me this is a very nostalgic photo, knowing that I probably won't travel to places like this anymore.
    Kind regards,

    This composition has a great atmosphere and stunning colours. I love the gentle waves close to the shore, the tiny clouds and the small boat. The larger version shows us the excellent sharpness.

    Hello Jorge,
    These stone carvings are very impressive and beautiful. You have taken the photo from close enough to let us see the details, and also from far enough to let us see the structure of the architecture with the tower built in several sections.

    Hello Costantino,
    I like the composition of the small boat so close to us with the larger boats and buildings covering the entire photo in the far background. The light is very good and has given the colours nicely warm tones. To me the most important features of this photo are the posture of the man, as he is leaning forward while doing something to the ropes, and the bright green details of his boat.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    A nice photo with a nice title. The quite large group of people seem to enjoy the sun and each other's company and most likely the music contributed to a good atmosphere. The suitcases indicate that they may be waiting for a ferry and are spending their time in this relaxed and pleasant way. This photo reminds me of the many snapshots available to those who always carry a camera. I missed a simliar opportunity only yesterday on my way from the supermarket. I never seem to learn. ;-)

    Hello Malgo,
    This is a beautiful scenery with amazing contrasts between red, green and blue. The line of poppies at the bottom frame the photo nicely. I think the colours are a bit overdone but I understand that it could be tempting to make such a stunning impression even more intense.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    I've never been to Indonesia, but when i think about it images like yours come to mind - lush greens and colourful oceans.
    the forest looks to be quite dense and packed here, I wouldn't want to get lost in there.

    although I do not agree with Whaling, I can respect their culture and history/heritage.

    wonderful spot, how'd you get here if its so remote, and how'd you know about it?
    awesome TE post

    Hi Juliette
    this is a funny one :)
    because of the straight on composition, the tall Cathedral looks like a toy :)

    its great to examine the outer shell of the Cathedral and look at all the details it has to offer. the exposure is a tad dark, but thats perfect to see everything clearly.
    wonderful job

    Hi Pierre
    I like this shot alot, it has a real sweet lighting atmosphere to it. and of course the way the reflections are laid out on the water is attractive too.

    nice to have the low level water to make this all happen.
