    Hello Christian,
    This old port is really well protected by the impressive and beautiful medieval towers. They are well balanced in this photo by the two boats and a part of the city. The colours and light are good and the clouds form a fine background.

    Hej Boa,
    Vad jag har lärt mig under många resor i många år är att människor är sig väldigt lika överallt i världen, men kanske att det inte är något som gjort människor så lika varandra som mobilen. Den här bilden är kul, men egentligen inte så förvånande. Hur som helst så är det ett välfångat ögonblick, och med fin matchning mellan deras dräkter och väggen. Färgen är härligt mättade och exponeringen sitter perfekt.
    Och vad ska du göra i höst?
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Silvio,
    Lovely colours and a very attractive composition. It was probably wise to include a bit of the hillside, to give us an idea of the scenery, but it would have made a fine photo even if you had cropped the upper one fifth, leaving just the flat field and nothing else. But maybe the moderators would not have liked it.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Frank,
    It was probably good for you, and very good for the composition, not to show the owner's face. I also get a strange feeling he may not always be so nice ;-). I like very much how you zoomed in on a few details and small parts of the polished surface instead of showing the whole car. That would have been dead boring, but this is a superb composition.
    Greetings,
    Gert

    There seem to be marvellous sceneries of great natural beauty all over Iceland. You captured this view very well and the light and colours are excellent.

    Hej Peter,
    För 100 år sedan målade konstnärer många romantiska tavlor med liknande motiv med solen som går ned över stilla skogssjöar. Motivet är lika betagande idag, och du hanterade din kamera mycket bra med en perfekt exponering.
    Vänliga hälsningar,

    Hello Christiane,
    This is a beautiful quiet rural scenery. The river goes very nicely across the composition on a diagonal. Two boats are well placed with the yellow buoy between them. The colours are fantastic and the light is very attractive.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a very attractive composition. I like the interesting pattern of the wall created by the uneven cracks. I also like the lonely window and the lonely door at different levels. The vertical line of blue sky is another fine feature.

    Hello Danos,
    This is a very nicely designed boat, a lot more attractive than most modern ferries. The lights create a very cosy atmosphere that would make the passengers look forward to their voyage. The sunset colours are very beautiful and well captured.

    Hello Maciej,
    It's a well designed and impressive building and a very well exposed and well composed photo. Even so, it would have been a fairly uninteresting photo without the woman stepping inside the frame pushing the pram with her baby. They add a lot of charm to the photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    Endless photos of empty streets or plain faįades (not necessarily yours ;-)) can get very boring, but endless photos of beautiful natural sceneries are endlessly fascinating. I love these green lines and the marvelously pretty clouds. The colours and contrasts are superb. You can safely go on posting photos like this.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I would have thought that this was from Bath, and it turns out to be almost the same thing. It's a very impressive building and it will eventually probably be a fantastic hotel with a price for the rooms rather beyond my normal budget. I like this tight crop, regardless of the reason. It really puts an emphasis on the curving faįade. I wish I could think of this more often myself to crop a photo in a way I didn't intend.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Roland,
    The flags make a fine diagonal converging in the distance with the line created by the bridge. The white buoy creates an interest in the lower part of the view. It's a neatly composed photo with very good colours and light management.

    Hello Robert,
    It's nice once in a while to see a photo that breaks the regular TE pattern. This is quite simple, but it is often the simplest compositions that are the most original and attractive. You placed the ladder on a perfect diagonal, and one broken step creates a diagonal on its own. The contrasts of red and grey are very eye-catching. I wish there were more free-thinking photos like this on the site.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    It's a very idyllic view and we can't see that the weather is comparatively cool. It looks like a perfect day in summer. The small boat is well placed in front of the jetty and the small wooden buildings and the colours are excellent.

    Hello Klaudio,

    I am so sad reading your note. Are you the next one who leaves us? I hope that you are just tired of your trip to Malaysia (is it really boring country??). But I agree with you that TE is less and less interesting. The old friends have drifted away, just do not appear anymore without saying anything, like Gunnar, Brian, Jason recently and so many other. But there are still some friends with whom I like to be in contact. Also when I plan my travels I can find valuable inspirations in old photos.
    Beautiful mosque, different architecture from what I have seen, beautiful colours in the evening wonderful light.

    I hope to see you here again. And I hope that I am not so predictable in what I show here, I always try to find something new.
    Best regards MAlgo
