    Hello Serge,
    It's a well composed photo which depends a lot on the person watching the flow of water and listening to its monotonous noise. The waterfall is impressive as such but the person and the wet rocks creating like a bench make the composition.

    Hello Rob,
    I suppose that Dutch museum visitors are also polite enough not to try to kick any of the balls. It could be tempting. Unless the balls are steadily fastened to the floor this would not be an exhibition for very young visitors. It is an amusing and colourful photo and it immediately provokes reactions and thoughts.

    Hello Sergio,
    The scenery is stunning and the photo receives a kind of rhythm from the alternating areas of land and water. The low light creates an attractive atmosphere.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is maybe not the most beautiful alley you have shown us, but it is a good photo with nice texture of the walls and of course the two persons who animate the view greatly. I also like the four arches of bricks. I would probably have tried to take the same photo if I had come this way.

    Hello Chris,
    I remember this small part of Chania well. It is partly a very attractive city and from this angle we can't see that most of these restaurants are probably shameless tourist traps. I found some nice restaurants a bit off the most frequented streets. It's an interesting mixture of buildings with fine details, especially the windows, and a nice balance of colours between the sky and the sea.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luis,
    This is a breathtaking view of one of the many beautiful fjords and villages of Norway. You could not have found a better place for this photo. The intensity of the many green tones is stunning and the mountains are perfectly reflected in the water.

    This is a lovely photo of the idyllic farm on a beautiful day. The hedge goes very nicely on a green diagonal and the red doors are stunning details. The photo generally has a very attractive atmosphere and colours.

    Fantastic buildings in a very nice photo. There is a good balance between the hill and the round square with an invisible diagonal drawn between them. Wonderful light and colours and so many details to discover,

    Hello György,
    I have long suspected this is how funny we can look when searching for the best and most original shooting angle. You spotted and captured this well and you also used the two persons to the left and the mannequin very nicely to frame the view of the eager photographer.

    Hello Brenda,
    I spent two weeks in the UN in 1989, basically to learn about the procedures of the organization, but I didn't discover this architectural gem. I think NYC is full of surprises to those who look carefully. This is a very neat and elegant composition with beautiful details among the bricks and ornaments.

    Hello Paul,
    This is a most unusual composition but it is very well done. You used the branch of flowers very cleverly to frame the view of the land and sea below. The colours match in an amazing way.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is a good example of the slight absurdity that can sometimes be created in street-photos, where totally unrelated items can be combined. I wouldn't expect this elderly man to go to the café after resting his legs. But who knows? Maybe I am wrong. At least you used a good photo opportunity.Kind regards,

    This is a fine and rather exotic view of the city. I like the tiles of the nearest roof, and the clouds are stunning. The colours and contrasts are stunning too.

    Hello Ryszard,
    The ruin is still very impressive, maybe partly because of the contrast with the two cottages seen below the hill. It's a very good composition with a lot of trees included, and with a wonderful sharpness and clarity.

    There is something touching about this kind of naive but honest faith. I could see a forest like this in my country but never a small chapel stuck on a tree. To me this is a very original and charming photo.
