    Hello Ricardo,
    This is a great place for a statue, and it looks like a quite original statue too. I like the many red lines, and their shadows, contrasting to the blue sky and sea. It's a well framed and very cleverly composed photo with wonderful colours.

    Hello Jean,
    This is a remarkable view and the photo has a wonderful light and superb colours. I love the pattern made by the water resting in small ponds on the flat ocean bed. The lighthouse is a beautiful building which makes me think of a tower from Biblical times or a medieval minaret.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Serge,
    It's a well known view but the buildings are so fantastic and there are also so many fine colors among them. The good light assisted you to a fine photo.

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is a lovely rural scenery with a beautiful landscape and very nice cows that make the hillside come alive. I also like the inclusion of the trekker watching the animals. The colours and light are superb.

    Hello Will,
    This is a fine view of the heart of Venice, and possibly not the most common one. Maybe it's the lack of colours that makes it look so refreshingly different. That impression may also have something to do with your very neat PP, especially the very distinct clouds that make me think of old movies with rear projection of the environment.

    Hello Claude,
    A simple but nicely composed photo with a rather melancholy atmosphere. I never like the end of summer with the approaching darkness. The B&W conversion suits the mood.

    Hello Maciej,
    I saw this station on my latest (second) visit to Lisbon. It was so unlike anything I had seen in that city before. It's a fine work of modern architecture and you have captured it cleverly with interesting light and colours.

    Hello John,
    Once again you have found a very beautiful view where everything looks good in a photo. Very nice houses of different styles, a boat going along the river and nice flowers planted by the street. The colours are fine and the light has been very well handled.

    Hello Antonio,
    This is a very good photo. There is a great contrast between the fairly bright colours of the woman and her instrument and the desaturated background, as well as between the general roughness of the environment and her elegant appearance. She certainly chose a very photogenic place for her performance and you handled the opportunity very well.

    Hello Klaudio,
    I think many of us miss Wolfgang's photos that showed the interaction of people and elements in their surroundings, usually unintended, in an often quietly humorous way. This photo fits his style well. I find several connections between the woman in the painting and the lady watching it. Furthermore I think the only reasonable way to take photos of art in a museum or gallery, at least for a site like TE, is to combine it with onlookers.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    I don't understand much of the technical details you tell us, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying this superb photo. You have composed it very elegantly with excellent balance between the few elements and the different colours. It's a work of a fine artist.

    A very attractive wall where the timber provide a very fine pattern. Also the sun add a very nice diagonal line here. All flowers provide fine colours. This must be a very beautiful town.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a fine photo of this humorous statue of the classic M. Hulot in his characteristic style. He is well placed at the curve of the railings, overlooking the beach where he made so many of us laugh. He deserves a memorial. So many years after his death Jacques Tati is still a frequent guest in Swedish crosswords. Your photo gains a lot from the fine light and beautiful colours.
    Kind regards,

    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.

    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

    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.
