    Hello Angshuman,
    You found a fine and eye-catching POV for this photo and handled the difficult light excellently. The dark walls inside the cave and the rocks in the bright sunshine are all equally well exposed. That is quite impressive,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is a nice and original way to show the main square of a city. It's also a nice self portrait, although we don't see you very clearly. The well polished ball looks like a very interesting work of art, which could probably be used for many unusual photos.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    This is not at all a bad photo for such a "poor photographer" :-). But I am very disappointed that you didn't include the photo of the slim young woman as a WS. We are not all of us active on FB. :-(
    There are some very interesting buildings in the background and you put the jetty on a nice diagonal, also including a little boy (son?) in the foreground. The colours have remained quite good for almost 40 years, even though Orwo Chrome may not have been as good as Kodachrome.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    This is a fine photo from the port of Saint-Florent. The red nets with their green and white details provide a stunning foreground which matches the white boats and blue water and sky perfectly. It is a very eye-catching and attractive photo with superb light and sharpness.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is another fine picture from autumn in Wroiclaw. The magnificent red tree is well matched by the red coat, but also by the yellow and greens parts. The tree is well placed on the side, stretching its branches across the view, over tthe lake.

    Fantastic rocks in the hazy distance. I like the contrasts of the clear colours of the mossy rocks in the foreground and the blueish haze covering the rest of the view.

    Hello Piotr,
    This is a very nice photo from the beach in autumn on a day when the weather seems to have been still quite good. The rainbow, the red pier and the person walking towards us are all very fine parts of the composition. The left side of the photo has very good colours thanks to the warm light. The autumn colours of the trees are beautiful.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    This was a well captured moment in the life of... yourself. You were lucky to make this observation. The four persons' postures tell us quite clearly of their carefree attitude at that time. Each one seems to have a body language of her/his own. I like how you captured them from a slightly higher point and how you cropped the photo to make the sea rise like a wall behind them. The red shirt to the left may not have been a gift from above, but it certainly suited the composition perfectly.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Kasia,
    It's a good photo with a very crisp light and fine colours. Maybe if I had been there I could have seen that this mosque is so new, but from this picture I really couldn't tell. Some of the finest churches in Ukraine and Georgia were also brand new but built in a traditional style. As you could imagine I find the two workshops more interesting. They're not necessarily better photos, but you should know by now how much I enjoy watching people's activities in the streets.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    This is a nice photo with a clear focus. I'm not refering to the sharpness, which is as good as needed, but that you know what you want to show, and that is what you show. I see so many photos from the streets where I find no place to rest my eyes, nothing to capture my attention, like the photographers had no intentions with their photos. There is no doubt about your intention here, and there are lots of fine details and nice colours to observe among the faithful who have come to taste the holy water.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Anabela, :-)
    This is another fine street shot, showing a very ordinary but nice glimpse of daily life in a small Indian town off the tourist track. The woman's clothes are lovely (as they always are), and I like the dog watching its territory from the roof.

    Hej Trevor,
    Den här bilden får mig att skratta. Ljuset är lika vackert som förut och de gröna detaljerna matchar omgivningen lika fint. Men trots att pappan har gjort sin lilla flicka sällskap i karusellen är han lika ointresserad som förut. Han verkar älska sin telefon mer än sin dotter. Bilden får mig nästan att gråta också.
    Vänliga hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    This is a fine and intense portrait of the elderly gentleman performing his music in the street. It is interesting to note that even traditional musicians are now amplified. Maybe that is the only way to make themselves heard in the noisy city environment.

    Hello Rosemary,
    A couple of hundred years more or less hardly matters much to a bridge that has been here since the MIddle Ages. It is in any case an impressive bridge with lovely well worn stones. I am always fascinated by the thought of walking in the steps of almost endless generations of people before me, or watching jewellery or pottery shaped by human hands maybe thousands of years ago. This is a very nice photo with a decent depth and pleasant tones of grey, green and brown.
    Kind regards,

    This is a fine photo of this famous square which captures the beauty of the buildings but also highlights the well know problem of flooding. The tower is well seen through the arch, and the people huddling on dry ground are nicely left in the foreground.

    Hello Luciano,
    The little mystery of what they are doing is part of the amusement of watching this photo. Both persons are well placed while holding something befoire their eyes, busy with different kinds of techniques. They are nicely seated on the bench and the warm colours are very pleasant. It's a very amusing snapshot, the kind of street photo that makes me smile.

    Hello Jorge,
    The quality is good enough. The way you captured these beautiful birds on the dead trunk of the tree against the blue background is more important than perfect sharpness. It's an excellent and very attractive composition with fine colours.

    Hello Pavle,
    This is a very fine picture, very nicely composed. The bench is well placed in the foreground and its green details match the patches of grass and the waste basket across the road. The yellow tree is very beautiful and has left a fine carpet of leaves on the ground. The narrow road makes fine curves along the lawn. You placed yourself in a fine spot for this photo and the exposure and treatmentn of colours is perfect.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
