    Hello Ourania,
    My warm congratulations on your #1000. This is a perfect photo for your celebrations, not just because an old friend is featured once again, but because I can clearly see that the windmill is happy. It has a big, blue laughing mouth ana two smiling eyes and is wearing a red party hat. You should run along the pier to hug it. This is a perfectly bright and clear photo for your jubilee.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    This is an excellent photo which made me very surprised at first. I had to read the note to realize that nothing here is for real. But everything is cleverly made, including the photo of perfectly managed light and colours. It's a very amusing shot.

    Hello Pavle,
    A fine photo from this pleasant oasis of the city. The fountains are elegantly designed and under the trees people can rest in the shade on hot days. I like the fine light and colours.

    Hello Andrew,
    It's nice to see you posting again, although infrequently. You make up a very good story from this photo, and everything seems to fit perfectly. But did you see, and think, all this at that moment, or was it just another street-shot at random? The colours look slightly old, not quite as perfect as with a modern camera, but it's not disturbing and the quality of the composition is far more important. But maybe this could have been a case for a B&W conversion.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    The highest peak in Sweden, which has been the highest as long as anyone can remember, is shrinking slowly but surely because the glacier covering the top is melting. In a few years it may only be the second highest. This tendency is very disturbing, but we can still admire this beautiful photo from 11 years ago, when the glaciers were not yet so threatened. It's a fantastic scenery, greatly assisted by the clouds, and the light blue tones of the snow are very attractive. It's a perfectly exposed photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Chris,
    I was amazed to find this perfectly preserved Roman theatre right in the centre of the city. It was a popular meeting-place in the afternoons when the seats were shaded. I never saw it from this angle, which gives a great view of the entire theatre and its closeness to the city.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Carlo,
    You have made an elegant composition where the theatre is divided into three sections of different tones and characters. The person is well placed at the bottom of the most distinct section. It's a graphically attractive photo with well handled strong light.

    Hello Mariusz,
    I vaguely remember these towers from my own visit almost 8 years ago, but I didn't see them from this angle and not at this time of the day. I like the lights shining in the relative darkness and the view of the sea in the background. It seems you may have made a similar journey that I did to the same three countries in 2008.
    Kind regards,

    A very bright photo from this event. I particularly like the yellow of the pavement and the blue clothes of the people in the foreground. The perspective in the background is very attractive too. Good photo work!

    Hello Stephen,
    Beautiful picture of the Royal Academy of Arts. Dresden is still one of the cultural high lights in Europe.
    You picture gives a good overview and all the people prove that the place is alive.
    Have a good weekend. Groet Rob

    Perfect composition, the boat is very well included in the left hand foreground and its bright red and blue make a great contrast with the natural tones of the pebble beach and town in the background.

    Hello Jean,
    A very cleverly composed photo. You used the old fortifications very well in the foreground, adding some attractive reflections in the blue and motionless water in the moat. The two lighthouses and their eye-cathing red colour are placed perfectly in the composition.

    Hello Ourania,
    Congratulations on reaching the impressive number of 1,000 photos! A great milestone. Windmills just make such a great subject for a photo and this one is located very attractively. You used the stone path really well here in the foreground and the shallow and quiet waters add a nice pattern around it. The light was lovely as well.

    Hallo Rob,
    In je foto-overzicht staan de twee thumbnails van je laatste twee foto's met hun diagonale torens ook wel heel mooi naast elkaar. De gekromde betonnen lijnen leiden mooi naar de cirkel bovenin.

    Amazing picture. These endless repetition is fascinating, but the total scene with the two beauties is iconical. A perfect composition of these time.
    Excellent work.

    Such a great photo of this beautiful tower, some really nice architecture this is. I like the diagonal that the tower creates through the centre of the photo. The many different blue tones are very attractive too.

    Hello Ike,
    A very nice photo with some very good contrasts. Not only the difference in architecture style is very nice, also the warm colours of the building in the foreground contrast nicely with the tower. The sunlight and very blue sky were most favourable here too.
