    Hello Fabiano,
    Nice little cars like this are handy in cities of narrow streets and a lot of traffic. This red car goes well with the colour of the building. It's a quite typical glimpse from Italy.

    Hello Mike,
    I suppose this is not a place for people with lower level incomes, but everyone can afford to admire these buildings from a distance. They look good and the hedges are nicer than regular walls. Just for a change the parked cars actually contribute nicely to the composition. I do find the photo slightly dark though.
    Best regards,

    Hello Chris,
    I didn't see anything like this in Amman, but the umbrellas would do well to protect people from the sun. Beautiful colours with just one red breaking the very discreet pattern.

    Hello Claude,
    The Brexit referendum reminds me of the decision to invade Iraq to stop Saddam Hussein from developing nuclear bombs. No bombs were found and there was no plan for the future of Iraq. We have seen the results of that. Brexit may cause chaos for Europe for a very long time, thanks to politicians who build their careers on easily digested lies. But at least Marine Le Pen is happy.
    And the sign is colourful enough for a photo.

    Hello Burak,
    This is a fine composition with a nice, colourful and lively foreground and an impressive view of the great new bridge in the distance. When I first visited Istanbul there were no bridges at all across the Bosphorus. The city has changed a lot.

    Hello Rob,
    If I tried hard maybe I could copy a Mondrian, but I would never manage a van Dyck, so this woman is obviously talented. I can't see much difference between the original and her copy. What a temptation to add the signature ;-). I like this kind of photos and you found a good angle and good light.

    Hello Malgo,
    The fields and lakes have very nice colours, like those of a traditional landscape painting, but traditional painters rarely got the chance to see a cloud from above. The name of that hill would be impossible in most other countries today. Maybe there are still references to people like Dzerzhinsky in Russia.
    A nice start of the week. Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    I think the French revolution was partly a reaction to the behaviour of rich people like this guy, doing whatever they like because they can afford it ;-). On the other hand, if it wasn't for his arrogance you wouldn't have got this photo. The reflections in the polished side of a Rolls Royce are obviously just as amazing as those seen in water. I bet John and Craig also loved to take pictures of this car.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Neyvan,
    Relatively few foreign tourists discover Södermalm, they all stay in Gamla stan and the city centre, so I am glad you spent some time on my beautiful island. This is not so far from where I live. The evening light is beautifully captured and you composed this perfectly to include the people on the lawn as well as a good view towards Gamla stan. The red fence is a typical Swedish feature and it has a lovely warm tone,
    Kind regards,

    A very elegant square with beautiful buildings and a lively atmosphere. It's a very well balanced composition, perfectly cropped, and the nicely shaped clouds contribute to make this photo so enjoyable.

    Hello Serghei,
    This photo really shows what the title promises: a cottage on an island with a lot of ducks in the water. You were here on a day when the fine light created perfect reflections that enhanced the pleasant view of the birds. The building is quite beautiful too, so it must be a nice place to have your office.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    This interesting photo is accompanied by an almost even more interesting note. It seems the Artemis is doing a great job to keep culture and traditions alive. That's rather amazing, considering the competition with YouTube, Facebook and whatever seems to capture most people's minds nowadays. It's nice to see that such a large crowd (I imagine there were many others outside the photo) turned out to watch the performance

    Hello John,
    Now and then you show us a portrait. They are always interesting because they bring us so close to the motif. Thanks to the excellently managed light and the perfect sharpness we can study the faces into the smallest details, perhaps sometimes so closely that the person on the photo would feel uncomfortable if he/she was aware of our curious eyes. But this is a great shot of this original elderly gentleman. Thank you for sharing it with us.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello John,
    What great luck that the Parthenon was too big and heavy to dismantle and bring to Britain ;-). Greece was allowed to keep it and Edinburg got itself a nice copy.
    This is another fine photo, technically and artistically quite faultless, which so far has received far fewer critiques than it would deserve. The people seen here are relatively far away and small in comparison with the temple but mean a lot for the ambience of the photo. I suppose Craig and Tosca were too busy taking their own photos to be sitting up there. I am quite convinced it's not Craig taking a selfie at the corner.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lisa,
    Wonderful rays like these could probably make some persons religious. They wouldn't succeed with me, but I enjoy watching them nevertheless, just like a enjoy the paintings and vaults and other details in this fine church. This time your warm and touching note is almost more important than the photo. I wanted to see the WS pictures but it took you some time to include them ;-)

    Hello Ruben,
    This is a marvellous photo. The composition with the reflections and the hazy pink light makes this look very much like a classic Chinese painting. It's very beautiful.
    I see you have again lost the note. You can probably easily re-enter it by using the "edit" button. This problem seems to happen to some members more frequently and not to others. It's one of the mysteries of TE technique ;-)

    This is a fine photo of the fisherman standing by the narrow river, surrounded by green banks and flowing under the bridge. The nice sky is beautifully reflected in the water. The photo is slightly dark but the colours are beautiful.
