    Hej Gert,
    Extrabildens motiv är ju onekligen intressant. Huvudbildens myller har man ju sett på många av dina andra bilder. Även utan färger är det en bra bild.

    Hej Gert,
    Snygga mönster i både förgrund och bakgrund. Intressant att se de två olika taktäckningsmetoderna som visas i bilden. Man undrar vad det är för årsmodeller.

    En mycket intressant text och flera fina bilder. Svårt att välja en av dem, som huvudbild. Alla platsar ju. Fast jag saknar ju färger...

    Hej Gert,
    Här saknar man alla färger som jag förmodar finns överallt i bilden. Men naturligtvis blir det mer konstnärligt med enbart svartvitt. Ett veritabelt myller, hur som helst.

    Hello Bev,
    This photo is remarkably filled with memories of the past, almost as many as anywhere in Rome or Athens, although maybe more modest. I like the very mild green and grey tones and the nice balance of the photo with the river and the two ancient bridges to the left, and the winding narrow road separating it from the ruins of the Wycoller Hall. It was a slight pity about the deers you missed, but it's great just to see such gracious animals. No need really to take photos of everything.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    You had a lovely weather yesterday. Only people's clothing and the lack of leaves on the trees show that it's not yet spring. But the atmosphere is so nice and relaxed that it could be spring. A sightseeing boat is going along the river, there is a fine light and the sky is beautiful. It's a very good and enjoyable photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bülent,
    You have taken a good photo where the tall towers are not leaning too much and you managed to include the small boats at the bottom. Colours and exposure are faultless. I wonder how they clean these façades after a sandstorm, which I suppose occurs now and then. And what effect may strong winds have between these skyscrapers? Well, from here they look great and clean and I can detect no turbulence.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello György,
    You have created quite a dramatic scenery through a careful PP with fine contrasts. The castle looks magnificent on top of the hill, where it is well seen against a slightly lighter part of the sky. It is the kind of medieval fairytale castle that could set my imagination in motion.
    Well done!

    This is a photo with a wonderful depth and fine colours provided by the flags. There are enough people in the street to make the view lively, and they are well spread out.

    Hello Silvio,
    You have captured a fantastic atmosphere in this photo from the blue hour. The lights in the village are fascinating and very well exposed and especially I like the illuminated tower high up on the hillside. There are also very nice blue reflections in the water and fine shadows of the bridge.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ike,
    This photo make me think of an old song called "Bright Lights, Big City". I think it was about the excitement of a big city at nighttime, and you have captured that kind of atmosphere well. There are lots of attractive lights of all kinds and a swarm of ghost-like persons making the dark street interesting.

    Hello Pavle,
    The wooden benches are a nice feature in the foreground, but the school dominates the view. The building looks old but well maintained, or maybe recently renovated. It has beautiful colours. The photo is well balanced with an attractive diagonal accent and the light is very attractive.

    Hello Malgo, almost neighbour.
    I really didn't imagine you could just walk past an old church without entering it ;-). But you did well to post this photo instead of the one showing the church. Street musicians and street artists are always fun to watch. I am surprised to see from other critiques that this is an unusual view in France. I thought Europe was totally occupied by street musicians. The man playing the washboard (I remember them) looks like he is wearing a bullet-proof vest. But he is actually the second from the right. Right? ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Craig,
    I prefer this less distorted version, mainly because it focuses more on the main subject, which in this case should actually be the two men and the paintings on the wall. To my mind it's not necessary to show the entire building. Maybe the photo is slightly yellowish, but not disturbingly. It was a sunny day and the building would have had this tone of sandstone. I think this is a great combination of people, architecture and colours, where each aspect benefits from the others. India is probably better suited for this kind of photos than maybe any other country I know,
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Philippe,
    It is nice to know when I drink my wine that the grapes have often grown in very beautiful sceneries like this. It is an overwhelming view and the ruins of what looks like a fortress is a wonderful eye-catcher. With some slight further processing it would have been possible to give the colours a warmer tone, even without any unnecessary saturation.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Stephen,
    As you may know I enjoy to watch people in the streets, but I admit that sometimes a statue does just as well. The way this is placed it looks like he just stepped out of the building wondering where to go next. I am amazed he was only 32 when he died but had already made a name for himself. The photo has nice depth and the window is quite elegant. I could also imagine a different crop showing only the pavement.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ryszard,
    I suppose the traditional fishing village would have looked nicer, but times change and people need new jobs, so this development was inevitable. The hotel is quite an impressive building with a lot of interesting features. The warm colours are very attractive.

    Gert
