    Hello Brenda,
    What a very special building this is. It looks like a great number of small huts stacked on top of each other. I think the people living near the top should be careful when walking close to the outer wall, or the entire building could collapse. Can you get a grand piano up there, and where can you safely put it? It's a fantastic, weird building which makes me smile, and this photo really underscores its unique style. The light blue against the darker blue is stunning. I actually quite like the brown building in the foreground too. I guess it represents a more common style in this area.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Ciao Silvio,
    mi piace l' antiquita', l' intimita' ed il carattere discretto di quest' angolo del villaggio. La tua composizione ci offre ottimi dettagli e prospettive attraenti. E' molto interessante come le tre porte chiuse esprimono dei caratteri diversi e fanno il nostro sguardo girare dall' una all' altra. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

    Hola Angel,
    an elegant composition that gives us a close view to a characteristic corner of the picturesque town. I like the balance of the architectural elements and the details, the way the forest and the water complement the composition and the daily life details, which remind us that some people call this place home. The colours are so attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Bonsoir cher Philippe,
    the light brings out the details, colours and brilliant atmosphere of the small port. A picturesque place with a lot of interesting information distributed neatly around the panoramic frame. I like very much the distribution of colours, too. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    I like this scene and find it very interesting for its ususual perspective, its great depth, iressistible golden tones and intriguing textures. I like the placement of the people in the foreground and the distant background, the area in between clear and glowing with warm light. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonsoir Jean,
    I like this composition of strong and meaningful diagonals, you placed and balanced them very well and they draw a suggestive view of the mountainous scenery. The colours and the textures that fill the spaces between the diagonals complete the description very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ike,
    both of your pictures are well composed and interesting, I like the context and the diagonal in the wider view and the main post is very interesting for the details and textures of the tower as well as the colourful flags flying all around it. I like how you brought out the colours against the cloudy sky. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello dear Mesut,
    a remarkable capture, so sharp and with superb sense of depth, an interesting scene that fills the frame, fine natural textures and a palette that looks harmonious and contains amazing variations. The bird's head, eye and beak make a strong focal point. Congratulations and thank you!

    the view is picturesque and delightful, the architecture and the mountain in the background are well presented; their placement, angles and details are great. You handled the light in a brilliant way, the contrasting colours look clear and delicious. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Ourania,
    The sea is remarkably dark blue, save for a few smaller areas where we see the drawn out reflections of the houses in the village. The curve of the hill is lined with small clouds that could perhaps have caused very local showers. It could have been nice to see the frustrated anglers or the lady with her daughter, but you decided to show this very picturesque view with the intense colours and the bright light shining on the hill, and that is quite all right with me.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello dear Takero,
    both the condition of the landscape and the colours you captured all over it and in the sky, create an eerie and dramatic mood, they make your picture so special. I like the way you balanced this view as well as how you smoothed colours and greys. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello John,
    That day was not perfect for photography but the not so nice weather doesn't hide the impressive architecture of the 19th century theatre. I rather like the design of the other building too. A few red spots somewhat brighten the view. Sharpness and exposure are as good as ever.

    Hello Luis,
    A nice street view from a city I don't know as well as I should. Maybe it's time for me to go back soon. These buildings are very elegant and there is a fantastic light on its fašades. The pleasant composition shows the street on a diagonal with nice clouds filling the upper left corner.

    Hello May,
    I have seen many shocking but eye-catching photos of the hard working men here, so this is a refreshingly different composition. The baskets are very nicely lined up on a diagonal. They are attractive to watch and they provide a perfect lead into the composition. When my eyes follow the baskets they inevitably end up at the large green volcano in the background. The photo is well composed and has a narrow but very attractive range of colours and a fine hazy light.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Very nice POV from the back of the small church. Spectacular view through the rocky mountains as we can guess.
