    Hello Eleu,
    It's certainly a beautiful cat but I would advice you to choose a slightly smaller one, fancying a meal of Whiskas rather than human flesh. It's a fine photo and the colors of the rock match the beauty's fur quite well.
    Best regards,

    Hello Craig,
    I think you choose this POV to show us the light green fox from its best angle. The green person goes very well with the water and the trees and of course he adds a nice human touch. The view is, as you say, slightly gloomy but not so dark that I would call it disturbing. Did you ever try the shadows/highlights? It could totally spoil a photo when used without further thoughts, but carefully handled it can do wonders to tricky exposures. At least that's my experience, but I admit to having extremely rudimentary knowledge when it comes to PP.
    Have a nice weekend,
    Gert

    Hello Aleksander,
    A fine composition with a rather romantic atmosphere. The lights from the windows look very cosy and match the light from the half moon. The dark blue evening sky dominates the view beautifully.

    Hello Ana,
    A plain and simple but very nice composition. The paper flowers look very bright against the white wall. I wonder if the curtain is used to match the flowers, or the other way around. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.

    Hello Karolina,
    Portuguese food is often delicious. Let's hope this restaurant is not too touristic and adapted to foreign tastes. It's a nice photo in fine B&W tones of a situation we all know, whether to pick this restaurant or go somewhere else.

    Hello Danos,
    A beautiful view and an excellent composition. There is not one dead or empty part of this photo. At every angle there are interesting views of boats, houses, mountains and clouds. The light has a wonderful brightness and the colours have a fine intensity.

    Hello Malgo,
    With this photo I think you have followed some important rules for composition, mainly a beautiful frame and a human foreground. The roofs of the two stupas fit perfectly inside the beautifully decorated screen and there are enough people walking across the burning hot tiles to show what a lively place this is at all times of the day. Without any doubt this is also to me one of the greatest places ever.
    Another gem that you had carefully hidden for several years ;-).
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Roland,
    I would not call this kind of graffiti "art". It is done with no consideration to the community, it shows no artistic talent and has no other message then "I was here". But along with the red door, the surrounding wall and the house number all these tags get an interesting graphic effect. I would say that the graffiti is not art, but your photo is.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Maciej,
    It's an impressive view of the mainly white houses and red roofs. Seeing so many looking the same, so tightly packed together but at different angles, has a strong impact. Great light and colours and a fine green frame at the bottom.

    Hello Mesut,
    These are very original pink chairs and table, not the kind you would expect to find in a street. But they go well with the light blue door and window shutters and the grey wall. It's a simple but pleasant photo with a good combination of colours.

    Hi Kari

    This post makes me think of Martin Parr's one seen in his book "small planet", with the old people having a "lake break" after a long trek, really a strange tourist behaviour!

    Hi Gert, How they can go and walk like this, I wonder. I would be afraid of height. All three photos are nice but I like most the workshop with tall women, tour leader without the group and beautiful background. Here, the children seem not interested at all, only one girl want to see the leaflet. Nice colours, the boy in red matches well the high guy (maybe the reason you chose this picture). Interesting triangle - the guy, leaflet and heads of kids.

    perfect double image, the water refelection being as sharp as the original mountain. I suppose you used a partial grey filter to get the same hues.

    Hi Rutger

    A nostalgic picture due to the conversion in sepia mood, the lonely person on the plateform is eye catching, well located on the picture and the perspective. But your post is too contrasted, details are missing mainly in the sky but also in the train and station.

    Hi Yagmur

    Very well, I like this street picture taken at the right moment when the boy on his scooter appears between 2 pilars, while the crowd is wandering. The sepia like gives a nostalgic mood as the silhouettes shdows on the pavement

    It's really your style and you prove it every day. I like very much this close up in low keys, the red smile of this man accepting well to be taken in picture. The white dots in his eyes are giving life to this piece of art

    your post is just close to this one http://fr.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/France////photo1501238.htm on my prefered list! What an amazing color parallelism!
    I like how the small and tall table is welcoming the tourists to have a break and a drink while visiting the city.

    On change de style (architectural), mais le thème reste le même. Ta photo est juste à côté de celle -ci http://fr.trekearth.com/gallery/Middle_East/Turkey////photo1501222.htm dans ma liste des photos de mes préférés, quelle similitude de coloris!

    Hi Karolina

    This picture looks very old due to the grainy aspect, the pub seems to be very small or maybe full of persons: we must wait for someone to leave to enter it!
