    Hello Ike,
    I like very much the perspective you chose to present this unusual urban scenery. It's intriguing to see the two different rows of buildings one on top of the other, you are offering us a good opportunity to study the exceptional style and details of this street. The picture in the workshop is interesting and agreeable too. I like the moody colours and how the cars make a third, less neat but quite discreet layer. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    the rich colours and the intense contrasts, the perspective, the textures and the sunny atmosphere, make this picture very attractive. There's also activity and interesting scenes to watch, a very vibrant and inviting image. I like how our glance inevitably rests on the turquoise water in the middle of the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Murat,
    I'm sure that both exploring the rampart and gazing at the view through the window were parts of a fascinating experience and you are offering us an intriguing glimpse of it through this smart composition. I like the way you compromised symmetry and ensured excellent definition. The contrast is very effective and plays a significant role in the creation of a special graphic effect. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Bonsoir Jean,
    there's so much to see in this rewarding scene, it made me think of Gert's exotic pictures from sites like this, but it's new. I like very much the colours and the details, also the movement and the fascinating distribution of interest. It's enjoyable to look both for timeless and for modern hints in this rich and vibrant scene. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Silvio,
    intrigatissime le prospettive e la ripetizione costante dei motivi architetturali. La profondita' e la nitidezza della presentazione sono superbe e mi piace molto anche il cambiamento delle tonalita' calde secondo il tocco forte o sottile della luce. Lo schermo blu e' davvero delizioso. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Bonjour Serge,
    I get a sense of suggestive drama when I look at this picture, the trees and the poles in the foreground look like the chorus and the protagonists of a Greek drama in a wide theatrical stage. I like very much the dark tones and the shadows, especially across the snowy ground. The sense of depth and the textures are wonderful too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    The light management is first rate here, with the rocks not seen as silhouettes. You timed the small boat in the reflections of the setting/rising sun.

    Witaj Ryszard,

    You've captured a heart-warming scene with the little boy surveying the area. Where is my mother? Liguria is usually a little cold in mid-September, but the little boy, possibly Scandinavian has no problems.

    Warm regards,

    this is a delightful minimal image, all its components are natural and the reflection of the sky makes the light and the atmosphere so intriguing. I like the distribution of the mysterious shapes, this image looks both playful and poetic. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Paja,
    I don't understand much about the set up or the process but everything looks neat and perfectly under control. You are offering us very clear and interesting descriptions through your photos and I like how the moody warm colours stand out against the soft greys. In the main picture I enjoy the contrast between the fascinating distillation set up and the serious-looking building across the street. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Daniel,
    the colour and the textures of the car look exquisite, I think I can smell fresh orange juice:) The tight composition and the selection of a special part of the car to represent the whole worked wonderfully also thanks to the effective way you managed light, clarity, depth and contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Takero,
    this is a superb capture too, the setting, story and colours are very different but the scene is so attractive and fascinating. The selective focus is playing with the movement so delightfully, the colours are very lovely. It's impressive and amusing to see all the feet off the ground. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Takero,
    I enjoy very much the intensity, drama and mystery I, as a clueless observer, feel in front of this scene. A superb capture of a fleeting moment that totally belongs to a timeless ritual. The sense of movement and the colours are marvellous. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Gert,
    it's a childish thought but this time I whole-heartedly wish we could do more than travel on your time machine, I wish we could turn back time and avoid all the violence, disgrace and suffering caused to Aleppo. Your picture is amazing because it covers a great part of the city and is full of details and character. Everything I see, from buildings to details and colours is filtred through what I know now. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Sven,
    winter looks very mild in your picture too, I like very much the subtle light and the fine, peaceful atmosphere it creates. The play of light and shadows makes the scenery look richer and you also obtained such a sophisticated palette. The description of the setting is both effective and elegant. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Klaudio,
    both pictures have a fascinating, exotic allure and I'm sure they are very rewarding both to viewers who are familiar with this kind of performance and to those who also have to deal with the mysterious symbolisms of the scenes. I like very much the way the flames stand out, they look natural and give intensity to the intimate scenes. The details, colours and atmosphere have been rendered wonderfully. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,
