    Hello Halgeir

    It's the clouds and the near monochrome feel that makes this picture work. Rough nature picture.

    Hello Prema

    A great, intimate portrait, excellent in bl/w. Both the kindness of the smile and the sharpness of the image are terrific.

    The postage stamp frame I don't like that much, though. I'm also a bit puzzled about the folded effect on the picture itself. The picture itself certainly is good enough to do without those added effects.

    Just in case...

    Classic beauty, superb rapeseed yellow, great halo effect of the sun and wonderful layers of depth on the mountains in the distance.

    Congratulations & cheers

    Hello Gy

    More off-beat than the rapeseed shot you've just posted, but I like this one too. In fact, the WS version is my favourite. It's the bench that does it for me!

    Hello Mrityunjoy

    Great wide view, way up close. The yellow wheel is a strong feature and the blurred background adds a sense of location. A good idea & I like the result.

    Those red rocks are familiar, but the inclusion of the simple housing adds something different to the scene. I like the result.

    Ah...another sublime shot from way up north. It's an old older shot, but really deserves being seen!

    Some Faroe pictures really have an other-worldly feeling to them. Brilliant here how the pieces of rock and land seem to hover above the surface of the sea. A magical view, perfectly captured.

    Mes félicitations!

    Hello Petar

    This is a great shot that seems to have been overlooked here. I like the strong colours, the contrast in the sky and the high sharpness here. Great depth & the car tracks in the fg add something different. Thumbs up from me.

    Lovely diagonal and out-of-focus foreground here, Ana. I also like the strong red/blue of the clothes and the position of the second carriage in the bg.

    Very alien feel to this shot indeed, dear Korkut. It feels as if this is a statue. Is it? Or is it a real boy we're looking at? I'm sure about the shadow, not sure about the skater. It's that kind of picture. Fascinating!

    Hello Lisa

    A great subject and well taken. What I like most is the tone of the blue on the water and the wooden textures up front. What I like least is the rather uninspiring sky. I wonder if you could have gotten any higher to get a higher pov and maybe then leave out most, if not all of the sky. But maybe you didn't want to risk plunging into the water. Common sense...

    Cheers

    A very imaginative piece of work here.
    The antique filter creates a great effect.

    Great yellow triangle, very luminous scenery. And that small cow or horse below is the finishing touch. Excellent shot.
