    Hello Malgo,
    In Ukraine the government has ordered that all statues like this should be removed, but in Russia Lenin is still popular. Of course not as popular as Putin, I guess. I don't know in which direction Lenin is pointing. Maybe it's to the west, in which case perhaps he is saying "First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin".
    A funny picture from Russia, with a strong nostalgia for the Soviet times.

    Hello Pavle,
    A nice composition in a suitable panoramic shape. The superb depth of the photo makes the train look more impressive and gives us a feeling that it is coming towards us at a great speed. I also like the fine light and colours.

    Hello Maria,
    A little girl like that shouldn't be out so late alone with the stray dogs. But you could thank her for improving your photo. She adds a lot to the slightly eerie atmosphere created by the paintings and the darkness.

    Hello Ana,
    Although the scenery is very flat it is an elegantly composed photo. The wooden walkway curves very nicely through the central part of the view, surrounded by lovely blooming meadows. The lonely tree is well placed towards the side and is nicely reflected. I like the mild colours and fine light.

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a lovely photo, maybe one of your best. The little girl is a perfect focal-point and the loving couple in the corner is another beautiful detail. There is a good balance between the monument and the lamp-post and the trees make a fine background. The colours of the evening are enchanting and very well captured.

    Hello Takero,
    They don't look so happy here, maybe tired, but it's a great photo thanks to your POV and the fairly dull background which makes the people and the flags really jump at us. Because there is hardly any background at all, they all look like cut-out figures. I love that effect.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is a fine composition with fantastic light and colours. The diagonal between the church and the table and benches gives the photo good balance. I love the apparent softness of the large bushes on the lawn.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    A perfect moment. I love the look the man is giving you as he discovers your camera, just as he is about to take another sip of his masala chai. The light falls very nicely on his face and the yellow turban, which brightens the entire photo. Another photo where you isolated the person perfectly from the background.
    Kind regards,

    A nicely spotted moment and a well composed photo with a fine greyscale. Among the many fine details I like the parallel diagonal positions of the couple's legs.

    Hello Mesut,
    What a very nice photo from this park. The lawn is beautiful with the millions of white flowers (probably the same kind that we will se here too in a few weeks), but the duck is no doubt the star of this composition. She brings life and almost a kind of human touch to the photo.

    Very nice windows on a spectacular wall. It makes me think of a strange face with two eyes and a very large mouth. Fine details and a superbly cropped photo with excellent colours.

    Hello Gerrit,
    This is not spectacular but there is a very pleasant atmosphere. I like the look of the couple walking down the street, the woman resting her hand on the man's shoulder, the little boy standing by the side, and the few other persons hanging around. Possibly this is a boring place for those living here all the time, but it should be a very nice place for a short visit. This photo has very good colours and a beautiful depth created by the road and the cars and people in the foreground and far away.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas,
    Although this is a quite ordinary view you still managed to create great beauty through the colours, haze and the depth created by the canal and the railway tracks. I was disappointed to see your last photo gone. I liked it very much.

    It's a beautiful church. I love the clean lines and simplicity of such medieval buildings. The red poppies adorn the foreground and I love the various green and yellow tones surrounding the church. This photo also has an admirable clarity.

    This is a very unusual camping site, far more beautiful than most. The different colors of the cottages make this little "village" very pretty and idyllic. An interesting and attractive photo with a fine light management.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Today we are neighbors on TE. This is an elegant and interesting modern church (with another modern structure right behind). It has a very fine sloping roof and a beautiful, quite simple tower. It is nicely situated just by the fields. The colours and light of the photo are very good.

    Hello Ourania,
    This is a beautiful, smart photo, really outstanding. The arm adds so much to the impression of the red berries and the contrast of red and blue. It is very well placed and gives a fine balance to the composition. Even just a hand and part of an arm is enough human presence to make the photo lively. In a short moment this hand may start picking up strawberries for a customer who will enjoy their sweet taste. This hand even makes me feel the sweetness of the strawberries better than a plain view of the berries would have done.
    A superb start of the weekend!
    Kind regards,
    Gert
