    Hello John,
    Fog can cause trouble to traffic but it can also give great beauty to a photo. The grey background, hiding everything except the nearest trees, creates a quiet and peaceful atmosphere and makes a perfect complement to the green meadow. You have balanced the composition nicely according to the rule of thirds. The sheep adorn the view beautifully. Only one out of seven doesn't keep its eyes on you. Maybe it was too far away too hear you, or maybe it couldn't see you through the fog.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pierre,
    The photo is nicely divided into sections of dark grey, light blue and dark blue. There is a fine view towards the fishing boats and the hazy mountains in the distance, and in the foreground seagulls have gathered on the pier. It's a clear and well exposed photo.

    Hello Federico,
    This is an impressive photo, technically and artistically. You captured the elderly man in his step. The difficult light is very well handled with all details well kept in his face. There is a fine edge of light on his shoulders, arms and head and a beautiful shadow. The top of a minaret is perfectly seen in the opening between the walls.

    Hello Bev,
    You had a very good idea to document these prints. It's a funny and fascinating photo of the mass movement of geese. But why didn't they fly? Did they need to reach the summit to be able to take off? Nature is strange but wonderful.

    Hello Rob,
    Mueck's figures create strange reactions among people. They seem to liberate us from our natural discretion and allow us to stare shamelessly at their wrinkles and crooked toe-nails and hairy armpits. They allow us to break the mutual agreement, at least in the Western world, that if you don't come too close to me I won't get too close to you. Mueck's figures are like real people, they just happen to be twice as big as the average and artificial. While the figures as such are immensely fascinating (and slightly disgusting) it is fascinating to watch this photo and the visitors' reactions. The workshops, and the additional upload, show us well the incredibly skillful work of Mueck.
    Kind regards,

    The lady has a very nice smile and she poses well. I like how she is holding her hand on the wooden railing. You have handled the light well and found a very nice and colourful background.

    Hello Danos,
    I only knew Ulm for its famous tall cathedral, but this slightly more modest buildings is also very beautiful. The roof and walls are filled with spectacular details and although the café partly hides the view of the wall it is a nice element of the photo. Sharpness and colours are faultless.

    Hello Daniel,
    A very nice combination of the colourful and richly decorated carousel and the very plain skyscraper looking like it was designed in the Soviet Union. The people animate the foreground and the tree frames the photo nicely. The colours and sharpness are excellent.

    Hello Alexandre,
    Every time I see a photo from a Brazilian city that I had hardly heard of I am amazed to see the maze of skyscrapers. This one has a very attractive situation by the sea with what looks like a great beach conveniently close to where people live. Your composition is well balanced, the colors are beautiful and the two boats are very well placed.

    I suppose there are enough crazy young people to keep this machine going, but like you I would be careful to stay away. Not from this photo though. With these evening colors you managed a graphically highly attractive and interesting photo.

    Hello Brenda,
    Whether or not it was your intention you managed a photo with a great number of diagonal lines that create a sense of movement, even though everything is perfectly still. You timed it well to match the "TH E SE CO ND" of the train with the signs near the roof. Let's see what will remain of "unum" after this Friday. :-(

    Hello Carlo,
    This is a very impressive fortress and the illuminations in the darkness create an exciting atmosphere. You exposed it well and I like your chosen angle where we see people stepping out of the complex from the tunnel of light. There is a fine contrast between the green hillside, the yellowish walls and the black sky.

    Hello Malgo,
    Maybe not totally creative, but it is a great view with lots of details and lots of people (however small). As long as you're having fun and don't waste time writing critiques all is well. Did you really expect to see all of the Louvre? You would need many days for that. It's better to decide on a few parts and see them more carefully, rather than rushing through as much as possible.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    Incredible colours and a very neatly composed photo. A tree and a lamppost frame the view of the sun and its reflections perfectly but the silhouettes of the persons are the real gems of this photo. The WS is also very attractive, but I prefer this slightly more minimalistic version.

    Hello Will,
    Ta Prohm was one of he most interesting temples I saw in the Angkor area, but there were considerably more tourists during my visit. It's a cliché to say that B&W makes a photo look timeless, but I can't avoid it, even though the real timelessness is probably due to the lack of tourists.

    Hello Angel,
    A very attractive view from this beautiful square lined with pretty buildings with fine façades. People walking across the sunny square seem to be longing for the shade, maybe also for a cold drink. The colours are lovely and the bright light is nicely handled.
