    Greetings Gert,

    The title you composed for the photo initially threw me off. "Where's the red?" I asked, until I noticed, along with the spherical pink balloons, was the hemispherical red hat of the would-be shopper. Wonderful slice-of-daily-life photo from Bratislava, which I've never visited.

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    You've presented an unusual image of the celebrated Neuschwanstein Castle. Most touristic views of it show it in an organic view, fitting so beautifully into the hills. Here you've shown us the realistic, tourists' view, with visitors entering and exiting the edifice. And you've provided us all with an excellent note.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Daniel,

    This photo could be celebration of globalization, with the Pizza, Vespa, the Union Jack (on the rear fender) and of course, its location, Stockholm. Accompanying an image I sent from the Ukraine a few years ago, Globalization, I had written an extensive note celebrating the phenomena. It might be useful for your excellent photo also.

    Warm regards,

    Your light management in this late hour scene was entirely first rate. the colors a vivid, and the impressive depth of field allows one to read the license plate on the car and the "Emergency" sign in the distance.

    Bonjour Gigi,

    The magical colors you've captured creates an unforgettable scene in this image of the Richelieu River in Marseille. The owners of the white building on the opposite shore should purchase rights to this photo, offering the price of a new car.

    Magnificent photograph, dear Gigi,

    Hello Rob,

    I love this shot from "my backyard." This must have been shot when you and Lars came to Washington, DC. The woman pausing at the intersection, the finger pointing at her in the poster behind her, the trump-playing performer, his prominent American flag. (Of course, you shot it on the 11th of July and just a week earlier was the "Fourth of July," commemorating the day of American independence from England.)

    Warm regards, Rob,

    I agree that you raise the quality level of Lovech photos considerably. These houses are quite spectacular, as regards design and construction as much as colours. It's a nice straightforward photo with well managed light.

    Hello Rob,
    It's a well known but always very impressive view. Seeing anything like this from a plane is always very exciting. The super big size version proves the excellent quality of this photo but is rather too big to handle on any normal screen.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    You give us a fine set of three photos, but I have to say I prefer the WS #1 for its warm colours and more intimate atmosphere. This one shows what happens many times when visiting famous spots where many people want to take photos. Sometimes it's hard to avoid other photographers, sometimes it's fun to include them. It is to some extent like two very different photos stitched together. Even though it is better than the average TE photo it is not quite one of your most memorable contributions.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    Once again you have used a canal and trees to create a photo of fantastic depth and fine reflections. This time the colours of the late afternoon sky are just as important as the deep perspective. The blue tones and the golden light surrounding the soon setting sun are lovely.

    Hello Danos,
    A nice view which combines the ruins of the ancient castle, the town and its beaches, bays of the sea and the distant hills. The visitors to the castle seen in the foreground are small but still enliven the view. The color of the sea changes gradually from a beautiful turquoise tone to an equally beautiful dark blue. It's a very nice photo, including the fine sky.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a magnificent facade with a slightly funny roof which looks a bit out of place. Maybe the maids, butlers and nannies employed by the upper class families lived in the simple looking rooms at the top. It's another fine observation and a very nicely cropped photo.
    Was it just a coincidence that you visited the other capital of culture, or were you part of an official group?

    Hello Paul,
    Both photos are exceptionally nice and well composed and it didn't make much difference which one you would select for the official upload. There is one person in the workshop but almost 30 swans in this photo, so I guess the swans won. They create a very pleasant view along the water towards the medieval gate and the colours are very nicely mild. It is indeed a photo very much in the jhm style, but that is nothing to worry about.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jorge,
    This is an excellent composition where you have used the vertical accents of the architecture very cleverly and also included a handful of persons who enliven the view. With some very slight further treatment you could have increased the contrasts a bit and made the golden wall look even more golden.
    Kind regards,
