    Hello Carlo,
    This is a fine photo of this humorous statue of the classic M. Hulot in his characteristic style. He is well placed at the curve of the railings, overlooking the beach where he made so many of us laugh. He deserves a memorial. So many years after his death Jacques Tati is still a frequent guest in Swedish crosswords. Your photo gains a lot from the fine light and beautiful colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Eleu,
    It's certainly a beautiful cat but I would advice you to choose a slightly smaller one, fancying a meal of Whiskas rather than human flesh. It's a fine photo and the colors of the rock match the beauty's fur quite well.
    Best regards,

    Hello Craig,
    I think you choose this POV to show us the light green fox from its best angle. The green person goes very well with the water and the trees and of course he adds a nice human touch. The view is, as you say, slightly gloomy but not so dark that I would call it disturbing. Did you ever try the shadows/highlights? It could totally spoil a photo when used without further thoughts, but carefully handled it can do wonders to tricky exposures. At least that's my experience, but I admit to having extremely rudimentary knowledge when it comes to PP.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Aleksander,
    A fine composition with a rather romantic atmosphere. The lights from the windows look very cosy and match the light from the half moon. The dark blue evening sky dominates the view beautifully.

    Hello Ana,
    A plain and simple but very nice composition. The paper flowers look very bright against the white wall. I wonder if the curtain is used to match the flowers, or the other way around. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.

    Hello Karolina,
    Portuguese food is often delicious. Let's hope this restaurant is not too touristic and adapted to foreign tastes. It's a nice photo in fine B&W tones of a situation we all know, whether to pick this restaurant or go somewhere else.

    Hello Danos,
    A beautiful view and an excellent composition. There is not one dead or empty part of this photo. At every angle there are interesting views of boats, houses, mountains and clouds. The light has a wonderful brightness and the colours have a fine intensity.

    Hello Malgo,
    With this photo I think you have followed some important rules for composition, mainly a beautiful frame and a human foreground. The roofs of the two stupas fit perfectly inside the beautifully decorated screen and there are enough people walking across the burning hot tiles to show what a lively place this is at all times of the day. Without any doubt this is also to me one of the greatest places ever.
    Another gem that you had carefully hidden for several years ;-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert
    PS I allowed myself to use your space for a message to Stephen, although I am not sure that he will see it.

    Hello Roland,
    I would not call this kind of graffiti "art". It is done with no consideration to the community, it shows no artistic talent and has no other message then "I was here". But along with the red door, the surrounding wall and the house number all these tags get an interesting graphic effect. I would say that the graffiti is not art, but your photo is.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Maciej,
    It's an impressive view of the mainly white houses and red roofs. Seeing so many looking the same, so tightly packed together but at different angles, has a strong impact. Great light and colours and a fine green frame at the bottom.

    Hello Mesut,
    These are very original pink chairs and table, not the kind you would expect to find in a street. But they go well with the light blue door and window shutters and the grey wall. It's a simple but pleasant photo with a good combination of colours.

    Hi Gert, How they can go and walk like this, I wonder. I would be afraid of height. All three photos are nice but I like most the workshop with tall women, tour leader without the group and beautiful background. Here, the children seem not interested at all, only one girl want to see the leaflet. Nice colours, the boy in red matches well the high guy (maybe the reason you chose this picture). Interesting triangle - the guy, leaflet and heads of kids.

    Hi Malgo,
    What Can I say? I completely agree you about barbarity and stupidity of destroying old monuments. And barbarity of war in general.
    Beautiful picture on great warm late afternoon or early morning light.
