    Hello John,
    Cows, horses and sheep can make any photo look nice. These cows make the view of the farm look quite pleasant and the trees also make good focal-points. The brick buildings provide a fine balance to the green grass and the pleasant sky.

    Hello Kari,
    It's a nice view, I would even say it's a great view, mainly thanks to the curving river and railway and the red train well timed to brighten the view in the right place.

    Hello Jean,
    What a very strange little shed, built like a fortress but so small and with a door almost as big as the wall. The roof seems to be collapsing and nature is about to swallow it. Certainly questions arise, not least because the padlock looks relatively new. I thought it might have been there since the 1920's. What could be inside? A drug laboratory? It's an interesting discovery in any case.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Luis,
    This is a very nicely composed and well cropped photo. The building is pretty and well maintained and the many flowers outside makes it look very welcoming. It's a perfectly exposed photo and I like that you included a small glimpse of the neighbouring house.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Brenda,
    What a magnificent piece of public art. I like the vertical shape of the photo and the inclusion of the street sign and a small part of another building. It's a photo that makes me really enthusiastic.

    Hello Claude,
    Not your usual quick shot from the street, but a very good photo. You used the light very well and there is a fine depth created by the lamps, tables and the long red carpet. It's an architecturally magnificent room and it's good to see it mot entirely empty.

    Hello Costantino

    You`re absolutely right, there`s a very good contrast between the yellow flowers in the foregroudn and the blue colours of the sea and sky. It`s a nice layered composition. Lovely work:) TFS.

    Another good composition with an interesting atmosphere. The woman's bright cap, the dead leaves, the dark trees, the persons far behind in the mist - they all make this look like in a "film noire".

    Hello Saša,
    This is the second time today I praise a photo of a nicely curving road. When a narrow road goes like this in a forest, with trees on both sides, and the disappears behind a bend, the photo doesn't really need anything else. These curves are enough to make it attractive.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Sasha
    It's about depth & visual perspective; The winding road, an integral part of the shot, sparks attention which leads the eye through creating a stark contrast. You cope the light pretty well there with nice shadow and shade. Nice take, Congrats

    Hi Claude
    A vibrant capture as the big poster being part of the streetscape and as effective marketing technique perhaps. Great view with all their diff shapes and some fascinating colours to grab the eye and much to look at in the large version. Very well seen and explored to form a story, Congrats

    Hello Bev,
    This castle on the hill is almost childishly attractive. I would have been overwhelmed to see it when I was about 10-12, and I realize I still find it just as fascinating. The picturesque scenery surrounding it means a lot for the general impression, which is just slightly offset by the parked cars. But we don't live in the 13th century any more.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    A well spotted group of people and pigeons and a nice photo with good light and colours. The workshops are nice too, especially "Enjoying sun on the stairs", which you could also have used as a main upload.
    So now you have washed enough clothes to make another journey. If the site is ever repaired, so we can update our introductions, will you even remember every journey you made and every member you met since the last update? ;-)

    Hello Ike,
    The boat approaching the locks is very well placed and has a lot of nice red or orange details. On the right side there is an abundance of fine focal-points. The trees along the river are beautifully autumn coloured and you did well to include a few branches in the lower right corner. The weather was dull, as could be expected in Scotland (and Scandinavia) in October, but not to any detriment to the photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    This is so simple but so nice. Just a black road with a yellow line winding through the forest covered with snow. Nothing else was needed in this composition.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Maybe the Croatian water and rocky beaches have a special quality and colours. I posted a slightly similar photo and workshops recently with the same beautiful turquoise tones and a similar minimalistic theme, also shot from above. Obviously we both had a very good idea ;-).

    Hello Carlo,
    You made an interesting choice of motif, but it works quite well. The steps are made of small stones of different grey tones and create a nice pattern of horizontal lines. There is also a fine play of sunny and shady parts that make the view quite lively.
    Kind regards,
