    Hello MarieLouise,
    It is nice to see you back. Many members leave the site and few return. This plain photo has a strange beauty. It is an immense feeling to realize this stone was raised here so many years ago by people we know very little about. The strong colours and the rough surface of the stone, captured with a perfect sharpness, make this a very appealing photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Chris,
    What a pity you couldn't see the original library, but this is also very interesting. I never saw anything looking as modern and elegantly designed in Egypt. I wonder if the contents are as impressive as the architecture. The good light allowed for very sharp and clear photos.

    Hello Jorge,
    There is not much left reminding us of Themistocles, but it's a nice view of a part of Pireas with the big stadium dominating the panorama. The light is fine after the many cloudy days earlier in your journey.

    This is a very well framed photo with remarkably beautiful colours. The person watching the sunset is well placed and adds a fine human touch to the composition.

    Hello Carlo,
    You composed this well and created a superb connection across the entire photo between the cargo ship and the man looking towards the sea. The ship and the man are two fine eye.catchers. The photo also benefits from excellent light and clarity.

    This is a simple but strong and catchy composition. The contrasts between the two structures is the main factor but the wonderful warm light means a lot too.

    Hello John,
    Cows, horses and sheep can make any photo look nice. These cows make the view of the farm look quite pleasant and the trees also make good focal-points. The brick buildings provide a fine balance to the green grass and the pleasant sky.

    Hello Kari,
    It's a nice view, I would even say it's a great view, mainly thanks to the curving river and railway and the red train well timed to brighten the view in the right place.

    Hello Jean,
    What a very strange little shed, built like a fortress but so small and with a door almost as big as the wall. The roof seems to be collapsing and nature is about to swallow it. Certainly questions arise, not least because the padlock looks relatively new. I thought it might have been there since the 1920's. What could be inside? A drug laboratory? It's an interesting discovery in any case.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luis,
    This is a very nicely composed and well cropped photo. The building is pretty and well maintained and the many flowers outside makes it look very welcoming. It's a perfectly exposed photo and I like that you included a small glimpse of the neighbouring house.

    Hello Claude,
    Not your usual quick shot from the street, but a very good photo. You used the light very well and there is a fine depth created by the lamps, tables and the long red carpet. It's an architecturally magnificent room and it's good to see it mot entirely empty.

    Another good composition with an interesting atmosphere. The woman's bright cap, the dead leaves, the dark trees, the persons far behind in the mist - they all make this look like in a "film noire".

    Hello Saša,
    This is the second time today I praise a photo of a nicely curving road. When a narrow road goes like this in a forest, with trees on both sides, and the disappears behind a bend, the photo doesn't really need anything else. These curves are enough to make it attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    This castle on the hill is almost childishly attractive. I would have been overwhelmed to see it when I was about 10-12, and I realize I still find it just as fascinating. The picturesque scenery surrounding it means a lot for the general impression, which is just slightly offset by the parked cars. But we don't live in the 13th century any more.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    A well spotted group of people and pigeons and a nice photo with good light and colours. The workshops are nice too, especially "Enjoying sun on the stairs", which you could also have used as a main upload.
    So now you have washed enough clothes to make another journey. If the site is ever repaired, so we can update our introductions, will you even remember every journey you made and every member you met since the last update? ;-)

    Hello Ike,
    The boat approaching the locks is very well placed and has a lot of nice red or orange details. On the right side there is an abundance of fine focal-points. The trees along the river are beautifully autumn coloured and you did well to include a few branches in the lower right corner. The weather was dull, as could be expected in Scotland (and Scandinavia) in October, but not to any detriment to the photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
