    Hello Bev,
    The ground is already rather dark after the sun was hidden by the clouds. The rays convince us that the sun is still up there somewhere. The mixture of dark clouds, sun rays and partly blue sky is quite dramatic. I have a feeling this natural beauty didn't last long before the storm hit you.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Krzysztof,
    This is an amazing photo, and obviously there are lots of visitors who are not afraid of heights. This is one of those pictures where a lot of people mean everything. The bridge is naturally perfectly framed by the steep mountainsides and has a perfect green background. I think I would have preferred to take a photo from this point rather than being on the bridge...;-)

    Hello György,
    This is a nice view across the field towards the building. The long lines of trees create good depth. I like the bright but yet mild light and colours. The sky is very noisy. The answer to that could be Photoshop ;-).

    Hello Jean,
    A very timely captured huge wave. I think the effect of its force is enhanced from seeing it hit a place constructed for vulnerable people. The light is well handled and there is a fine contrast between the white wave and the warm tones of the grass.

    Fine churches captured in a beautiful light. The many red elements, including some of the clothes, are very eye-catching. You framed the view nicely with the trees.

    Hello Ana,
    This could be quite frightening on a dark evening, but mainly it's funny and interesting. I guess there are similar traditions in many cultures but this looks better than most. The wall creates a fine background to the amusing "portrait".

    Hello Piotr.
    I love this kind of composition looking straight down, and this is no exception. The red shirt and the green statue are very eye-catching and they are surrounded by the graphically beautiful paving. It's very well done and attractive with fine light and contrasts.

    Hello Carlo,
    You have placed the pigeon very nicely at the bottom of the photo, where the reflections of a building occupies most of the space. The bird catches my immediate attention, and then I watch the reflections with equal interest. The entire composition is well used.

    Hi Burak
    Thank for posting yet another good infor pic. just for your info there's a notorious Hilton in South East Asia, a prison -now a museum, built in 1886 by the French Colonial government in Hanoi French quarter to house Vietnamese political prisoners during their struggle for independence & interesting to see how the inmates used to live, tortured and executed. It was later used as prison for US pilots PoWs, during Vietnam War who ironically nick-named it the Hanoi Hilton....
    Thanks for posting.

    An excellent wide open landscape documenting this historic site by your detailed intro, pleasant exposure on a brill daylight packed with rich colour tones and contrast. Deep blue water and wonderful clouds lend this to a lovely finishing touch. Great capture, Congrats

    Hi Fabiano
    I can sense the difficult lighting conditions here while you're trying your best to manage the backdrop although it slightly lacks of definition imho, nevertheless as a whole the outcome is not bad though. The bow of the gondola leads while the beautiful water reflection and people interaction lend this shot alive. A decent capture nicely done to the best of your ability, Congrats.

    Hi John
    Can almost imagine you sitting on the bank at this level - what a thought of a fine capture of what look to be very cold conditions, like the details the frost has given you but with the warm tones of the sunlight and gorgeous still reflections. Superb wintery image, lighting and pov. Does this mean summer is coming.....
    Wonderful shot, Congrats

    Hi Noel
    Beautiful interior architectural shot, terrific symmetry with great feel of depth and the effect of light, shadows and colour worked best here!. The soaring eye-catching details are particularly good really pulling the eye into the image with so much to look at. This is a striking interior shot - real cool piece of photo work and easy on the eye! Congrats.

    A fine composition on a brill daylight - an expansive old town scene showing variety of architectural styles and colours where history is such a total treat here. Love how the church's green steeple holds the point of focal so firmly, an excellent capture from superb angle. Congrats.

    A very strong image by getting closer focusing on the big stand out Cross which signifies the imposing symbol of religion and linking to the calm & peaceful setting. It's aptly done in mono version. Well done shot, Congrats.

    Thanks to infor narratives, Real cool night shot on light, colours, content and view point, a pleasant image finely exposed with the glowing light of the vehicle grabs the eye to rest. The 'emergency' at the far end stops the eye from escaping away. Well done composition, Congrats.

    Hi Chris,
    I love your reportage from so many little known places in Bulgaria. This is a beautiful one. The architecture seems quite unique. I cannot compare it with anything else. Very colorful too. It is amazing that one can travel even in our little Europe and find so many unknown places which are so beautiful!
    Excellent work,
