    Hello Malgo,
    It didn't take me long to realize what inspired you to this posting ;-). These Indian "charpoys" are probably more comfortable than the Afghan tables as they are also used as beds, but less beautiful without the fine carpets. It's an interesting set of photos showing us fine excerpts of Indian daily life,

    Hello Pavle,
    This is an original street photo with interesting details. The three items are all very eye-catching. Maybe the signboard with the information on dead people will be the most interesting one to people in northern Europe, where this tradition is quite unknown.

    Hello Burak,
    This is a nice street photo with many interesting details and very good light and colours. The two men coming from the metro seem surprised at meeting a man with a camera pointed at them. Maybe they were not entirely pleased.

    Hello Ryszard,
    This is an interesting set of photos and again the colours are amazing. You always seem to find the exactly correct tones, well saturated without ever being oversaturated, which is a very common temptation.

    Hello Bülent,
    This is a fine portrait with a very nice light and good colours. I'm not so sure that the boy looks sad, just because he isn't smiling into the camera. Let's say he just looks serious. Amazing blue eyes, by the way.

    Hello Carlo,
    Staircases are a popular theme on TE, but this is different. The almost square pattern is not so often seen and makes this a quite original composition. The brown lines against the yellow background are very attractive and the light is nicely handled.

    Hi Brian

    Nice crop to detail the teddy bear piloting this big aircraft!! The blur of the propellers give the feeling of motion.
    Ah, there is also another interesting DETAIL! :)

    Hello Ourania,
    It is strange how a slight change of POV can dp so much for a photo. At first glance this is very similar to your earlier photo of the same view, but with the "windmills" included the foreground is totally different. Even comparing the pictures I couldn't quite make out how you have moved between your photo sessions. It's like the windmills were quickly built while you moved between the two spots :-). Apart from that, the sea still shows the same fine reflections making the surface shine like silver.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Maria,
    It's not easy to capture an almost unique view from one of the best known places in the world, but you really managed that. Only two persons seen in the Red Square in broad daylight must be very unusual. Regarding the angry guard in the WS I am amazed to learn that these Soviet instincts of forbidding photography are still so strong in people's minds. In countries like Albania or Romania, that used to be very tough and secretive, it is now possible to take photos anywhere in the streets. I never met anyone that tried to stop me.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hiya Rosemary

    The green statue stands out of the "yellow" church and your low POV enhances its height. Moving a little at left and backwards would allow you to hide the white and red advert and prevent to cut his feet.
    I prefer this one to the WS due to the fact that the statue is THE subject, the minster only the background.
    Have a lovely day

    Hello Roland,
    Another graphically fine composition, appropriately converted to B&W. The cyclists are well spread out along the white lines and the large E is a fine detail. It gives the photo a nicely mysterious appearance, since we don't know what the letter stands for.

    Hello Delphine,
    I like the view of the busy narrow street where so much is going on. It is a bit dark, because you didn't have time to arrange the settings. That is not a big disadvantage, since the street seems to have been all shady, but with some further processing some more details could have been brought out of the shade.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Satya,
    This is an interesting and valuable document, so different from most photos posted here by you or anyone. The real tragedy of the devastation is understood when comparing with the workshop photo. It is sad to see nature destroyed and people's livelihoods being threatened. In spite of these sad facts I can't deny that this photo has a certain graphic beauty of the trees stretching their broken branches against the sky.

    Hi Gert

    You're right, but it's really strange that in that street we can see no woman even at the back of your picture. They should do home work, bargaining is dedicate to men.
