    Hello Sergio,
    The title could not be disputed. Every photo from this town has a great charm, including this little street, where the nicely painted doors and balconies shine in the bright sun. You have taken the photo from a good angle, and cropped it well to avoid most of the shady dark area.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    I like the contrasts between the still mainly green trees, the yellow and brown leaves on the ground and the black narrow road. The tight vegetation makes this look almost like a tunnel, and this "tunnel" makes a nice curve which strongly benefits the composition. It's an attractive composition and very well exposed.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    This fantastic scenery and the fine colours remind me of what I have seen in so many Renaissance paintings. It's a very beautiful photo, perfectly composed and perfectly exposed.

    Hello Camilla,
    This fine composition makes me think of a painting from the 19th century. It looks fairly heavily processed but you refrained from overdoing the saturation and contrasts. The result is very enjoyable.

    Hello Rob,
    A very different kind of bridge. It's an interesting construction but unfortunately not in the best shape. It's a good photo with several catchy details but maybe more interesting and informative than truly beautiful in the conventional way. But beauty should not always be the main quality of TE photos.

    Hello Luis,
    The title gives a good description of the atmosphere of this photo. It looks like a perfect place for a relaxing time. The photo is well taken with fine tones of blue and grey and with the overhanging branches of a palm underscoring the slightly exotic atmosphere.

    Hello Dale,
    This is a pleasant photo with equally strong focus on the church tower and the souvenir stall. Both parts contribute well to the composition and so does the lemon tree. There is a lot for the viewer here.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    A delightfully different photo from Copacabana, totally free from the ordinary tourist clichés. I like very much the tones of grey and light brown, the strong diagonals and the well placed jogger who brings life and a focal-oint to the photo.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is a fine close look at this interesting monument, a nice example of what probably would be called naïvistic art. No theoretical skills are needed to interpret the happy message of the kind woman taking care of so many children. I have seen quite many statues of this kind in Africa. It's full of colours and movements.
    Kind regards,

    A beautiful composition of the tree stretching its branches across the path like a roof. I love the fine tones of white, grey, yellow and darker grey. It's a very harmonious composition with perfect light and colours.

    Hello Silvio,
    Another very pretty medieval village looking like a fortress – or a castle looking like a village. It is marvelously situated among the hills and the green fields, and the hazy background is very attractive. Your elevated POV gives us a perfect look of the castle as well as the surroundings.

    Hello Bülent,
    This is pretty much an ideal street photo. Not everyone seems to appreciate this kind of simple shots (there is no beautiful tower!), but I do. I love the posture of the elderly woman and the glance she is giving you while she is talking to her friend. They are perfectly framed by white, red - and some green. This is no doubt a photo I would have loved to take.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    The hospital building is very beautiful and so is the church tower seen in the background. The people add to the pleasure of the photo, whose main attraction is the warm light shining on the walls.

    Hello Alexandre,
    Both photos are very nice, but where do they keep the money for the ride? Surely the captain won't take them anywhere for free. ;-)
    I like the simplicity of photos like these. They really tell us something about this place.
