    Hello Ghislaine,
    With a bright boat like this firmly placed in the foreground no photo could really go wrong. It catches my total attention but I can see that there is a long stretch of beach behind it, although not the sandy kind of beach I would prefer. It's a very well exposed photo with excellent colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Angel,
    This is an intense and interesting photo with colours that attract my immediate attention. It's a fine composition of the view along the street with this elegant horse-cart in the foreground and others following behind.

    Hello Brenda,
    This is another interesting photo from the new district that has grown from the ashes of the Twin Towers. It's incredible that the 15th anniversary of these attacks is approaching. I remember it as yesterday when I was called back to my office on my day off and asked to write new summaries of the events every hour. So many things happened that nobody could have imagined.
    By placing the flag in the foreground you emphasize the patriotic feelings aroused by these events. It brings some colors to this part of the photo, from where the green pool drags my eyes across the photo up to the crowd of visitors.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Mehrdad
    This is an interesting building, at first glance it looks like a great mansion but looking closer I wonder is it under construction? The trees make a great frame.

    Bonjour Gigi
    This is great, the colors of the boat are really striking and the beach is a nice background and lead into the town. What I really like though is that the boat looks really proud, so often boats out of water are lopsided and look a little sad, but this stands as proud on land as in water.
    Cheers

    Hi Brenda,
    A thoughtful tribute, the lone flag is taken from a great angle, so it looks like it's waving but is perfectly still. A little like the flag on the moon.

    Set against the finish of the dark stone and the deep view into the fountain behind, it would never at first glance make me think of what happened here. I like that as it shows us that no matter the horror, and here to me is the worst example of that horror, we will get through it. Calm will be restored and the place will again belong to the people. This area exhudes tranquility in your photo.

    I always feel very strongly about 9/11 as for me it was the point at which the world changed. Whether that is due to my own ignorance of world events prior, or be it the media coverage of it, I always felt that the threat that hung over us all that day never really went away. Looking at the attacks around the world now is worrying. Even here in Ireland there is talk of physical borders being erected between northern Ireland and the republic again due to britain leaving the eu. Pulling down borders was and is incredibly important in Ireland and the peace process. Sometimes it seems everything is going backward.

    Your photo reminds me that even though it will be tough, we'll get through it. Somehow. Nice post, thanks :)

    Hello John,
    When i see photos on TE of fantastic hotels I always get very curious and try to find out more about them. Well, the cheapest offer for one person, one night in mid-August was 381,65 (pounds, I suppose). That is really more than I would be willing to pay, especially considering that one out of 20 who reviewed it on TripAdvisor found it "terrible", That it is not featured on booking.com seems to me a bit snobbish.
    As for this photo it's far from terrible.The building is really magnificent, and it seems you sort of get two buildings for the price of one. The lower part looking rather simple but actually quite elegant with its neat design and different kinds of windows on every floor. The upper part, with the gilded sign, looks like another palace strangely added to a more regular building.
    You have taken this from a fine low angle (not much choice, was there?) with a fine exposure of this shaded side.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Ruben
    You certainly get around ...
    This is a beautiful capture of a very interesting subject, a taste of old China. Great choice of format, good depth to the picture and exposure with strong of anchor point. I think black and white option will make it special. The composition and light levels combine so well. Well done, Congrats.

    Hi John
    A tranquil lake side, I love the foreground detail and depth in the composition with gorgeous green and blue sky. Great too how the eye is forced to view the birdlife - being one of highlights beautifully captured. Lovely snap, Congrats.

    Hi Lisa
    A Scottish Idyll!!
    The first thing that strikes me, is the beautiful way you have composed your scene with a well chosen viewpoint; the cottage at the thirds hooks the eye, great mellow light & colours combined with the gorgeous reflection and belting detail makes for fine impact enhancing the natural beauty of the scene.

    A landscape image, which can only be created by God's hand, and of course with a little help from your good self. Soothingly serene and tranquil......
    Remarkable shot, Thks to your description, of great point of intrest is the second paragraph.
    Congrats

    Hello Silvio,
    Beautiful buildings in a kind of cubistic composition. I love the ochre walls and towers and the contrasts with the green surroundings. The light and clarity is perfect and the bird is very nicely included.

    A perfectly captured view of a less than perfectly dressed man. Experts on "how to behave tastefully in public" would not approve of his exposed fat belly, and neither do I.

    Hi Jean
    A real spread of times with those characterful faces and costumes of a high quality shot of re-enactment portraits each one of which could easily stand alone.
    You've caught an interesting variety of poses in the happy people and i am loving what you are doing with colours - the colouring in this is absolutely dynamite - suits the subject matter very well. The entire photo has a very polished look about it too. You tell stories with this shot....
    Great capture, Congrats

    Hi Luis
    Beautiful small port with lots of interest around and great to see a small crane being use here as strong fg. White and red always work well together, but you've worked a good composition to set them off as well. Great capture, Congrats

    Hello Ike,
    A fine view from high above the ground of what you have already described as new and old buildings mingling. The nearest part looks like traditional Jerusalem, while the more distant area could probably have been anywhere in the world. It's interesting how globalization enters even one of the oldest and most characteristic cities in the world.
    Kind regerds,

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a scene that you won't see every day!
    It would be good to see the bus before and after but that probably wasn't within your remit.
    As it is, this a very fine,sharp photograph, with excellent, brightly coloured details.

    I like that the graffiti artist has a identification badge around his neck. Was that legal permission for him to spray the bus?

    Have a lovely day,
    Bev :-)

    This is really a large house. I think there can live more than one family or maybe there is some professional work-space in the building too.
