    Hello Ali,
    This is a truly fascinating place and a very good photo. The light and colours are perfect and I enjoy the look of the many people who have come here to admire the ancient structures. It would be very interesting to see this with my own eyes.

    Hello Swapan,
    Thios is an interesting temple, but I am also facinated by the houses built on the hill behind it. Your shooting angle takes in a wide view telling us a lot about the environment. It's also a well exposed photo with fine colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Sergheio,
    It sounds like an amusing idea to go looking for letters in a city or the countryside. It would probably be possible to find quite many, if you are keen on searching for them. I imagine it would be harder to find more than two or three in retrospect. But this fills the requirements very well, besides being a fine photo of the setting sun even regardless of the E. The colours of the sea and the reflected sun are quite marvellous.
    KInd regards,

    Hello Aleksander,
    This is a nice photo from the blue hour, although most of it shows the "yellow hour" of the artificial light in the shopping arcade. You exposed it very well and found good sharpness from leaning against the pillar. It suits the composition and the atmosphere very well that the girls on the move are blurred.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Leslie,
    The colours are spectacular and the scenery is superb, but if you had tried to take this just a few minutes later it would probably have been too dark to see much. Now we see the fields and the hills all beautifully covered by a thin haze of dusk. The nearest hillside looks very rough and difficult, not an area where I would like to descend in darkness. Hopefully it looked better behind you.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Rosemary,
    Seeing this photo I was very curious to know whether he was actually posing or if you happened to catch him unawares while he was just enjoying the weather or thinking about life. Your very interesting note told me everything I needed to know. He obviously knew what you needed for a good photo. Even the dog looks used to posing nicely. The colourful details frame the photogenic man perfectly.
    I didn't know you were educated as a photographer, but it explains the high quality of your pictures.

    Hello Angel,
    This is a lovely view with very fine colours. I like how you have "anchored" the composition by including the buoys at the bottom of the view.

    Hello Serge,
    This is a very dramatic composition. The dark tones, the yellow ray across the sky, the black silhouettes all make this look like a photo of Doomsday. Very well seen.

    A very interesting building showing an impressive skill at dry stone construction. The warm light has given the hut and the wall a beautiful golden glow.

    Hello Craig,
    "Clouds, boats, fishing nets, archiecture, charm..." and even a couple of persons. There's a little for everyone in this picture. And it does not look grey and white-washed to me. In fact the colors are very nicely saturated and attractive. I compared this version with the right-click version in Safari, Firefox and Chrome - and I didn't see any difference at all. It makes me wonder how much better the original photo could be.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hello Wolfgang,
    A straightforward and pleasant view from a street. The young persons look nice and seem to be having a very friendly conversation. I find it a bit amusing that they are standing in front of a "male" and a "female" bicycle. The greyscale is very attractive as usual.

    Hi Bev,
    A very pleasant sunshine over the buildings along the slope. The dark clouds seem to portend worse the weather, or maybe they're going away. A very attractive scene, whatever the weather.

    Hi John,
    A very funny and interesting note! I took a trip in this village too, with the kind help from the yellow man. I couldn´t find anything close to a pub here, so I imagine this is indeed a very dull village.

    Beautiful birds and a very nicely taken photo in which the three birds are well positioned at the corner, looking into the picture. A very attractive colour harmony as well.

    Hej Gert,
    Du stannade tydligen en tag i den här staden. Var det för att "researcha" din bok? Kanske flera av personerna i bilden förekommer i boken. Hur som helst, biografen ser ju rätt imponerande ut, vad gick det för film när du var här?

    Hello Pavle,
    This is a very nice view of the river and the forest on the other side. The boat gave you a fine foreground. The trees are very beautifully reflected in the quiet water. The light and colours are very good.

    Hello Jason,
    This is an amazing picture, one of those that I would have loved to take myself (you have lots of that kind in your gallery). Life is so full of great photo opportunities if you know how to look for them. It's a funny house by the way, and I enjoy how the "lawn" is overgrown in front of the older looking side and neatly cut in front of the more modern part. The roof and the grass frame the view very neatly.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    It's a very nice photo and I hope theirs were good too, so they won't be discouraged. The light was not ideal for you, but you used that disadvantage very cleverly to create these fine silhouettes. That probably makes your composition more attractive than if we had seen the boys properly. I like the contrasts of bright green and almost black.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Malgo,
    It looks like the lady to the right is pointing to the side with a very strange arm, looking like the leg of a horse :-). Amazing effect. Actually, with so many colours in a painting it would be hard not to find spectators wearing matching clothes, but the effect here is nevertheless very nice.
