    Dag Gerrit

    Mooie close-up. Hoog standpunt, maar zo krijg je wel die mooi uniforme achtergrond. De actualiteit van het nieuws zorgt voor extra betekenis bij deze foto. Of ze nu echt het vriendelijkste volk ter wereld zijn, dat laat ik even in het midden (er zijn er zo veel), maar ik hoop alleszins dat de wereld er geen probleemgebied bij krijgt. Er zijn er al genoeg.

    Groeten

    Another classic good light capture. I never get tired of these, so keep them coming, Denis.

    Pleasant compostion of daily life objects of the usually unnoticed beauty type. Thanks for looking, recording and showing, Michael.

    Hello Gy

    A strange and fascinating shot. Stars up in the sky, great use of artificial light and blue blue blue snow. Tee walking figure appears ghost-like in the image. A bit unsettling, beautiful.

    Sublime sharpness and ultrastrong colours. Very powerful city image, great architecture, the streets strangely deserted...

    Ha Rob!

    Duane Hanson kon natuurlijk niet in de serie ontbreken. Vorig jaar was er een prachtige overzichtstentoonstelling van de man in het erg lovenswaardige Museum van Elsene. Wel helemaal anders dan Ron Mueck natuurlijk, namelijk écht hyperrealisme.

    Opnieuw staat de interactie tussen kunst en kijker hier weer mooi centraal. Mama wijst zoonlief op een van de (spijtige en soms irritante) regels van het musueumbezoek: overal afblijven! Grr...

    A very considered composition with strong basic colours. I also like the relaxed pose of the fisherman.

    Great use of artificial light against a pitch black mountain silhouette and then the snow and that blue sky beyond. That's a really fine piece of work.

    Hello Ryszard

    The two swans are the finishing touch in this great city picture. Lovely how the colourful houses stand out against the white of the snow. The view reminds me of when I visited St Petersburg in the winter once.

    All the best

    Minimalist picture with a touch of oriental zen to it.

    Hello Daniel

    A visit to Toledo and watching the El Greco's in situ was the highlight of the first trip me and my (then future) wife made together, and I still have a soft spot for this city.

    This picture brings out how it looks like a fort sometimes, a vestige difficult to take. God pov.

    Great composition to bring out the contrasting architecture, Mariusz. Excellent dof so we also get the tower beyond really sharp. Tfs & have a fine day.

    Hot dal...I just love it. And it's a great picture too. Good sharpness and nice colours.

    I didn't know about the money thing in your note. Getting smaller notes has only been a problem for me in Cuba and Myanmar, both very long ago already.

    Encore une merveilleuse image de NYC. Excellent POV and des belles couleurs, subtiles et avec beaucoup de nuances. Dans la composition j'aime aussi la position du drapeau USA et le texte. Superb!

    Ciao Silio

    Here's another one I like. Strangely for pictures from Italy, I seem to like your pictures most when the weather is not at its best.

    A great ensemble and composition here with lots of odd angles and shapes. Dramatic sky above, subtle colours below.

    All the best
