    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a rather surprising window. There is such an intricate pattern of stained glass and wrought iron, which is strangely surrounded by the simple blue frame. It was a good idea to include some of the street, which makes us understand the location, and actually makes the window look even stranger :-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a clever composition, not least because you waited enough to have those men stepping into the view. They contribute well to the photo with their presence, and they also provide a sense of movement. I get a similar feeling of movement from the stretched rope, which seems to drag me onto the Dimitrios. You also managed to integrate the small boat very well. The thick rope from the big boat seems to continue straight away through the thinner rope from the small boat. I notice, by the way, that the café advertises in English even in the off season.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    I know you must have had fun taking this photo. It's a clever composition, where the function of the construction is almost lost among the zigzagging lines and differently coloured details. As you have probably noticed I love to have people included in a lot of photos, but in this case people would have spoiled the almost abstract beauty.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Gert, it seemed to me that we would be neighbors, but I was slow with my note (you in turn were too fast with critique to read it :)). I have read about your problems with uploading photos, but today it works.
    Another great shot from Africa. It is something that I also would like to see - local markets, with Africans in traditional cloths. In my trip in Southern Africa I saw mainly nature - wild animals and stunning landscape, less of the people. And in Namibia and South Africa many white people. Not so interesting. Beautiful items. What is in the back? they look like pumpkins. Nice kids.

    Hello Gerrit,
    An interesting photo from a very different part of the world, compared with Europe. But even in Sweden I have never entered a pharmacy where anyone shouted at me what to buy ;-).

    Hello Pavle,
    A very nice composition of the curving river lined by the dark, shaded wall on one side and the light wall in the sun across the river. There is a fine view towards the bridge and the outskirts of the city. The light clouds are very nicely reflected in the water.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    I remember this place well. It was one of the nicest areas of Poznan, actually not far from where I was staying. I have similar photos which I didn't post here. They were not at all as nice as this one, where you have captured the church and most of the other building from a good angle and with perfect light and colours. The two persons on the bench also contribute well to the composition.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is an original composition. Considering that this is all "dead" material the photo has a remarkable rhythm created by the contrasts between the diagonals and the strong horizontal line.

    Hello Jorge,
    These rocks are absolutely fantastic, really looking like huge sculptures of human beings. They could have been the largest works of public art anywhere, much bigger than the moai of Easter Island and just as beautiful. You composed this very well by including so much of the magnificent scenery in the background. What a stunning experience this must have been.

    Hello Malgo,
    Today we are almost neighbors. These hills are fantastic and the fine weather really allowed you to make the most out of these colours. The trees and the sky complement the marvellous hillsides very well. The result is almost overwhelmingly strong.

    Hello Carlo,
    This doesn't look like a very nice area, but the laundry makes it look attractive, at least from some distance. Long lines of bright clothes can cheer up any grey and dull street. This is an excellently composed photo with a very good balance between the horizontal laundry lines and the vertical accents of the windows.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
