    Always great to discover one of your bl/w gems among the posts, dear Korkut. I just love 'em! Here the shadows have something alien-like to them. Also the movement blur is an element I like here.

    Hello Mesut

    A fine post in your portraits gallery. The beard is terrific, and captured with fine sharpness and contrast. The very top of the picture is a bit too bright for me, I think it'd be even better if you had cropped off just a bit above the eyebrows.

    Scrolled up here, as I write this comment, with just the beard visible, it is a wonderful sight!

    Bonjour Jean Claude

    An ultra-classic Paris picture, but when it's very well executed (like here), I just never get tired of it. Congratulations.

    Lovely shot, Philippe. Great idea for pov and fine timing. The pitch black silhouette of the hut is really good here.

    Een prachtig plaatje van the Beach Boys!)

    De jongens zijn stoer met hun tattoos maar tegelijkertijd heeft het ook iets grappigs. Ik bedoel: het doet me denken aan zo'n ouderwets zoekplaatje waarin je zeven verschillen moet zoeken.

    Inderdaad moeilijk om aan te weerstaan als fotograaf, iets zegt me dat de jongens zich daarvan bewust zijn.

    Groeten uit regenland.

    An interesting documentary series you're posting.
    This is a succesful classic shot!

    Hi Daniel,
    The open gate invites us to enter into the scene beyond. I like the wide open feeling and the crisp focus, light and clarity. A beautiful winterscape.

    Hi Gerrit,
    This image screams Cuba, with the old car and the poster behind as well as the architecture. It is for these kinds of photographic features that I would love to visit Cuba. You have a good POV here at an angle to showcase the car in all it's fine glory.

    Hi Takero,
    A cute shot with these girls in all ages. I like their fascination with the colourful koi fish below. A lovely picturesque scene with the red bridge included. I like your equal share of the frame dedicated to the girls and the pond.

    Hi Roland,
    The square cropping works well here together with the colours of the bus to create an interesting frame of a daily scene that catches the eye.

    Hi Luciano,
    Butterflies are a little piece of magic of nature, they are so beautiful with their colours and patterns, and it is amazing how many varieties there are. This is a fine specimen that you have captured here. Great sharpness and clarity and close up to show it off in all it's beauty.

    I like this in the moment shot with the steam enveloping the man as he stirs over his large pot. A great atmosphere and a fine composition for this story telling image.

    Hi Gert,
    I too like this choice the best...There is a good feel to it with the lady reaching for the books she wants, and what I also like is that she somehow matches, in her colours she is wearing, with many of the books on the shelf. I am glad to see that in our modern day and age, with technology such as kindles and e-books, that true books are still popular in some places. For me there is nothing better than holding and turning the pages of a real book. A well seen and well composed image, taken at the right moment.

    Hi Huub,
    A beautiful piece of architecture that is brought to life by night with this golden light, a good choice to photograph at blue hour. I also like the contrast between this structure and the older buildings that surround it. Well exposed to gain all the details on it and the surrounds.

    Hi Philippe,
    Since we do not have very strong and cold winters in South Africa, I always enjoy to see winter scenes such as this one from other places. I feel that the white snow and frost that lands on trees always gives a beautiful feel.

    A fascinating scene, Alfons. It's familiar, yet this capture is somehow different. Superb sharpness below, with lots of great details...and then that magical mountain above. Terrific picture!

    Great walking shot, Rafer! Great sky and classic composition with that stand-out tree. It reminds me of the Polish roads series that 's being posted here time and again, but then...in a Spanish version!)

    Lovely portrait, dear Abmdsudi. Superb sharpness and dof, the eyes are superb, but you can also feel the texture of his warm clothing and even the dirt on his hands!

    An excellent piece of work. This is my favourite from your Uzbekistan trip now!
