    Hi Gyorgy
    You did well to achieve the best composition with this challenging shot testing the exposure to the limit but the result can be stunning if properly handled. The bursting sun effect is the icing on the roll, a shot I call 'praising the sun' Congrats

    Hi Krzysztof
    Rusty old metal door that speaks for itself and work of art! interesting association of closed up work, bitingly sharp and full of grotty rust with great attention to detail. There is more to look at and take in, something quite appealing to my eye. A shot which keeps the rustaholics happy! Congrats

    Hi Christiane
    A great place and lots of green to kill the time, the composition is excellent showing the sheer scale of the basilica blessed by such a brilliant sunshine and rich colours. Peoples' presence hold the eyes and this sums up a very relaxing springtime scene beautifully. Congrats

    Hi Will
    Pavement life!!
    A pic worthy of more attention than it has been given, so sad feel for them in this weather, but love this close candid; subject/s, angle, what you did atmospherically etc. it suits mono adding the gritty edge to the scene and nice background in total contrast to the subject. It's amazing to see what some people endure that does make us feel grateful. The composition makes this especially poignant. Well shot, Congrats

    Hi Ally
    Great Wall and Great Walk by looking at this layout and the scale but to stand on the Wall is definitely one of the high points of your trip! It is incredible to realise that this structure was built hundreds of years ago which look extraordinary and rugged, i think to hike the whole stretch is more demanding than I can imagine, is quite a challenge. What a beautiful and amazing ancient structure! Great capture, Congrats

    Hi Claude
    A busy airport and a productive way of killing the time while waiting to catch the flight as shown here and your tight framing forces the eye to see the link between the silhouetted figs and the big toy outside. The patterns and shapes created are particularly intriguing that carries quite an impact and 'feel' to the whole thing. Good vision, Congrats

    Hi Mariusz
    A very well composed, exposed and captured interior shot of this beautiful religious setting with interest throughout. That's truly amazing and i just really cant imagine; underground salt mine and a church, salt sculpture works and even the central chandeliers display are sculptured of salt crystals!!

    You managed the low light condition really well bringing the scene to life and stand out with very good sense of depth minus the digital noise. A super capture from this location, hope they don't have a damp problem, Mariusz. Fabulous lens work and thanks for sharing.

    Hi Gert
    What colour coincidental we have from this ordinary mundane situation making it sing that demands a closer look and that's where a smart photographer's eye comes into play. An eye candy abound of attractive strong elements around where human interest always makes it work together. Great capture of this lively place. Congrats

    Nicely taken on a bright day, I liked the line of trees down the path almost forming a v-shape and gives a graphic effect. The bold colours on the foreground
    hold the focus firmly. Nice ideas, Congrats

    Hi Noel
    Nice capture of the Huntress. Great to see the detail up close of the whole of the statue especially love the stains old look and growth on it which are
    particularly appropriate here. It is sometimes a bit worrying to look them in the eye though, it somehow seems alive! and very interesting write up too, thanks for that. Great work, Congrats

    PS: I have one niggle, even though the stark naughty crow lends a bit of punchy finishing touch but the haloish is slightly distracting imho,

    Dramatic shooting angle this was taken from with a bit of vertigo looking down below. You have great view there, the textured snowy field is subtly detailed and beautiful deep blue provides wonderful overall contrast with nice bit of catchy brown tone. Nicely done capture, Congrats
