    Wow, this is a great example of finding things you are not looking for! If you had time to check all the settings, the picture might have been good too, but probably not as "different looking"...and that's precisely the appeal here. The colours scheme reminds me of a Leon Spilliaert painting.

    Classic shot, Karolina. What I like most here, is the amount of light flooding in through the arches, almost leading to a white-out here and there...and then that's very nicely contrasted with the man in black.

    Have a fine weekend

    Hi Piotr

    The building seems badly in need of repair, but I like the picture. The unusual square format pays off. I also like that one man in black present.

    Hello Pranil

    This is an absolutely lovely scene. Surely my horse-crazy daughter's favourite here!

    I like the gentle framing with the tree on the left and the patch of ground at the bottom. They suggest a distance, an amount of respect, leaving the animal at peace in its own world.

    Great work. Tfs & have a fine weekend.

    Dit is een mooie, John. Knap kaderwerk en prima scherpte op die bruine deur in het midden, maar toch met voldoende diepte zodat ook de kerk in de achtergrond er mooi uitkomt.

    Dit is trouwens een begijnhof dat ik nog niet kende. Ik vraag me af hoeveel er eigenlijk zijn. Even opzoeken...

    Geniet van het weekend

    Bonjour Nicolas

    A lovely soft, almost breakable nature shot.
    The mountain outlines in the bg are impressive, but they seem shy and let the smaller scene in the fg take the applause here.

    Hi Craig

    Another great one that escaped me. What I like most here (apart from the reflections, obviously) is the right end of the frame, which to me suggests that this mountain backdrop goes goes on forever...

    Hi Craig

    You've posted lots of great shots that I somehow missed out upon. This one is an absolute gem, my favourite I guess. I absolutely like the colourful dresses against the impressive white bg. Thanks for your elaborate and personal note too!

    Hello Pierre

    Good dof in this gentle, quiet scene. Reflections and the man looking at us are other good elements here. I like it. Have a fine weekend.

    Bonjour Robert

    Strange to see this scene almost completely devoid of colour, making it even more moon-like. Good shot.

    Superbly timed and well composed. A fine addition to your series of rural life scenes. Great sharpness & a fine deep dark blue sky.

    Hello Gyorgy

    Yes, it works. Atmospheric rendition of the tower and sky at night. The colour scheme reminds me of Van Gogh. Strong yellow, against swirls in a deep blue sky.

    A very grainy picture with lots of noise and distortion, May. But on the other hand the composition is really strong, so in the end it works for me.

    Playful use of shapes and colours, Neil.

    I also like the young/old theme, both are touching the central railing: the woman is searching for support, the kid looking for a jump.

    Very strong, yet soft colours here, Aleksander. Good composition in this city view. The EUR sign is fine little detail...
