    Hello Nicolas,
    A fantastic effect of the pouring rain. There are not many colours but the light is terrific.

    Hello Daniel,
    I think I passed this city with the train, maybe even twice, but I didn't stop here. It could have been another nice experience, which this photo indicates. It looks like the kind of narrow alley which I like to explore. I like the glimpse of the church tower above the brick roof.
    Best regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    It's a well composed photo where you used the contrasts of architectural styles and colours very well. There is also a maze of diagonal lines that make the composition quite dynamic.

    Hello Malgo,
    Maybe the strange jar is actually a huge chimney to let out the smoke from the kitchen? Your description of Kazakh food doesn't sound so very appetizing. Even what I had in Afghanistan seems to have been much better, mainly mutton and probably no horse meat. I honestly guess Italian food is better than Kazakh. Like John I wonder why this place is so empty. Was it well known that the food was no good?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    This is a very different and very cheerful photo. Doesn't the man's outfit resemble Theresa May's shoes? ;-) I suppose these people had an alternative option to stay inside in case of bad weather, but it hadn't been half as fun (and probably too noisy). Sometimes you carefully plan to take photos from a certain place and then you stumble into something much nicer and more colourful. You never know what to expect on a photo safari.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Somehow this building looks far too elegant for its purpose, but hot mineral water must have been serious business in the older days. It's a good photo with fine symmetry and very well handled light, accompanied by an interesting note.

    Hello Lars,
    This building seems to be roughly the same age as the house at the corner of my street ;-). This looks seriously misplaced in this environment but it is no doubt a fine building. But being partly used as the entrance to a subway station sounds like a grave insult to one of the oldest public buildings in the country. It's a good photo with quite a lot of street-life and it is nicely cropped with the surrounding buildings just used as a frame.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Carlo,
    At first I wasn't really sure if the reflections were actually some very strangely hanging curtains inside the window. I didn't notice the very small man standing there ;-). You made a very smart observation. The distorted reflection of the Cathedral has a very interesting effect, especially because the window and the wall surrounding it are so elegant. It's an astonishing and amusing photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello John,
    This photo immediately reminds me of one currently being shown on the TE homepage among the featured photos, called Traveling south. But that one shows real alive flying things. This is nice too, and I appreciate the sharpness and fine composition under such difficult conditions. I guess I don't share your or Craig's enthusiasm for any kinds of machines, but I admire well taken photos and I am always fond of well written notes.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    This is a nice photo of the small mosque and the mausoleum, but also of a typical Indian street with cars and motorbikes passing by and the motorbike-rickshaws waiting for passengers.. And there was not much to do about the dull weather.

    Hello Chris,
    This looks like a fairly big and slightly rough city and a nice seaside resort at the same time. I have to say that the average Greek big city architecture never seems to have been focusing on beauty. This is still a nice view thanks to the many small boats and it's certainly an interesting view. The light and colours are very nice, regardless of the ugly buildings.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    There are many things that could not be imagined anywhere else that are perfectly normal in India. It is not quite like any other country in the world, which is exactly what makes it so endlessly fascinating, Hi-tech and Middle ages within minutes of each other. Apart from the cows I also notice the fine details of the fairly dilapidated buildings.

    Hello Murat,
    This photo definitely has received a highly symbolic significance. There are indeed dark clouds over Turkey these days. I didn't see this monument before, be´cause even though Beşiktaş is not so far from the centre I haven't spent much time in that area. The design is quite interesting.

    Hello Ike,
    This building has obviously seen better days, but it's interesting that the sundial has been preserved. It would be very rare to find a similar attraction on a new building. It was good to (almost) avoid the power-line, but even better to avoid the trams. ;-)

    It's a nice intersection with a very interesting pole with lots of wires. Maybe some of them are not used at all today. This looks like something from long before the days of wifi. An amusing photo from a well spotted place.

    It's a simple wall but so very charming, The people living here obviously love their house and take good care of it. That is clearly seen from the many flowers and the general cosiness. It's a tightly composed and very neatly cropped photo with wonderful colours.
